Tub Dr.rocRAT yri is the out fit newspaper on tbe Mississippi teacodsl hut larger 1m M cir rul.tt.en than any ntbrr newi-pupcr in this section ; therefore it is the bttt advertising medium. Adrer tiera will bear this in mind. ' A CARD Whereas, C'bailee M. Lidtlle, editor and proprietor of tie Moss Foint Adrertiter, saw fit to assail me personally through the column of Lin paper Ust Friday (23d inst), I deem it mv duty to reply to the slander and falsehoods coutaiued therein as briefly ai possible. Charles M. Liddle lies when he says be docs not receive sod read every issue oi the Democrat Star. Charles M. Liddlo wilfully lies when be says he but deuiod pub licly outcring into a ooutiact with P. K. Miiycrs & Co., editors and proprietors cf the Democbat Stab. Charles M. Liddle tells an IX FAUOVS UK hcu be tays M. Ii. Richmond aud G. W. Willea re moved him f i oin me by force, in my office, on the 21th of April lust. Charles M. Liddle tells a double distilled LIB when be says thui I ever contended thut he (Liddle) bad rato contract with myself in dividually. The cou tract wns made with 1 K. M iyers & Co., P. K. Slayers and AI. B. Kicbruond, com posing said Arm. Charles M. Liddle LIK8 knowing ly when he says my partner, M. 13. Richmond, told bim thut he did not endorso ray course in denoun cing bim (Liddle) for trying to LIE out of the contract in rcicrenco to advertising entered into between the proprietors of the two papers, ltichmond authorizes me to make this denial. Charles M. Liddle lies when be says I am jealous of bim, or that I am trying to persecute or bull doze bim. This, I hope, will end the un pleasant controversy, at leant through the columns of the Demo crat Star. The sworn statement "To the Tubtic," published in another column, makes the case clear, and leaves uotbing further to be said on the subject. Id conclusion, I denounce Charles M. Liddle as a malicious falsi fier nnd a cowardly doo. T. K.' MAYERS. - Scrsnton, Miss., May 20, 1834 The last legislature empowered boards of supervisors to equalize taxes.

" FiFTT extra copies of this week's issue ot tbe Democrat Star is sent to liiloxi to fill au order. Or tbe 23d Dr. II. G. Penu was found guilty of murder in tho cir wt court at UaileUurst or tbo killing of E.B. Rials. A motion for new triat waovcrruled. and be was sentenced to be bang The one wui be appealed to the tu remt court. The majority of the. democratic nr. fonsnlerin the fact that tL tiuio fvr th national convention is cloe at land, be Wen very rvt iceut npoa the question of who shall be our eUndard bearer in the i aiu rojctim ' cauiuiiisn. una ic i Lxv eipres-d u di-cided prefer- j twK Of course there are eicrp- tious, some claiming tu.it Judge Stephen J. Field, of California, is the strongest man, some few want iog Randall, of Peiin IrauU, a few have meutioaed Flowers, of Sew York, but the majority, so Tar as we have teen, are cbutoring for the "old ticket" of Tilden and Hen ricks. Undoubtedly Mr. Tildeu is a stroug uiau, and wc believe cju carry New York considered the pivotal State inasmuch as Tam many has expressed a willinguess to barniouue witb the Irving Lull wiug and bus staled that they will support aud vote for the nominee of the uatioual convention. But there are other men also bo can carry New York, and men, too, that Tammany would suport witb a much stronger will than Mr. Tilden. The Democrat Stab has opposed the nomination of Mr. Tilden from the beginning of the campaign, aud still purposes to do sonutil :ho contention makes the nation ; but should be become the nominee, and accept the nomi nation, we will support him aitb all the Ability we possess. We do not, however,' think be Is the proper person tor the staudard bearer of the great - democratic party In Ibe coming content. He was once the nominee of the party 1 and President elect of the United States, but through bis impoteucy and thatot bis friends and advisers, be allowed the prize to slip bis grasp, aud stood silently by nud permitted the great fraud of the electoral commission to decide a question adverse to the decision rendered by a vast majority of the American (enple at the ballot-box. Now his frieuds Bay be inast be vindicated and the fraud wiped out. What assurance do we have. should he be elected again, that be would have tbo nerve to take tbo office in case the republican party should refuse to loose its grasp upon tbo treasury and the governmeutt If there was aprob ubi'ity thut bis bouds would be depreciated by a struggle for the office, be would according to pre cedent give up theofDceaud hang on to the bonds. Tilden is a great man, undoubtedly, iu his sphere a great reformer, aud did great good in New York State but is not the man for President. In tbo opiuiou of the Democrat STAR Judge. Field is the best qual ified, and tho strongest man ns tbe nominee for the democratic party. As to bis ubllity there is no ques tion, aud he cau not only carry California and the Pacific States, but he can carry New York aud the Eusteru Slates. lie is a man of nerve, as well, and made a most strenuous aud gallant fight against the great fraud of 187C, and fought it iucb by inch in all its phases through South Carolina, Florida and Louisiana- Judge Field would be aceeptable to the people of fhe' South, and sliou'd be be the uotni- uee ho will be elected, and will take bis seat ns President of tbe United States. H- E- HUES. The Jackson ledger suggests the name of Mr. II. II. Iliues as n candidate for Stale auditor, We know of no mau who is more capu bio or more emineutly qualified for the position than Mr. Ilines. lie has been in tbe auditor's office for several years, and being a compe tent accountant and a good busi ness man, ho has acquired a know ledge of the office sufficient to en uble bim to perform tbe duties thereof iu a correct and satisfac tory manner, aud in bit charge the State would never bare reason to complain. We have known Mr nines for more that tweuty years, aud dur- iugall tbat time have ever iouud bim to be a quiet, industrious, up right gentlemau, having uo griev ous faults, but au honorable man of correct morals and habits. Be ing entirely competent, with bis many other good qualities of bead and heart, H. Q. Iliues woald make most excellent auditor of public accouuts. Circuit court of Hauoock county ndjeurued last 8aurdaj. Cbaa. Atkins, tor assault aud bat tery with iutent to kill, was sou fenced to the penitentiary for two years. This was the only one sent np at this term. TO THE PUBLIC- Iuasmu'h as nnuh has bfeo said lately through the columns of the Democrat Star and Adeerti- nr concerning a contract agreed niou between the proprietors of tbe two papers, we deem it due tbe ptib'io aud to oumlves to make statement us regards tbe origin of the mutter, which we "ill do 04 briefly a e possi ble : Soino time in December, 1S83, coming over on the train from llamlbboro to this pl.ice P. K. May ers was approached by C. M. Liddle wlio stated tbat as be was going to move the Adeertiimr office to Jack- sou county he (Liddle) would be willing to enter into a contract to take work at the some rates. May ers remarked that be would be wil ling to enter into such a contract, but would not cloe it uutil be saw M. B. Kiehnioud, when we could all talk the mutter over to gether. Shortly after the arrival of the train at Scnintou Liddle came into the Democrat Star office where tbe three parties concerned discussed the mutter thoroughly in all its phase, iu a friendly and quiot manner. The result was this: Both parties agreed to take ill ad tertittmentt at the tamerattt; and further, that both papers would publish a uotice at tbe head of first column, on second page to that ef fect. We wanted to include job work, but Liddle would not agree, and that point was dropped We alo desired fo write up the con tract aud sign it then, but Liddle said to wait until he was ready to get out bia paper in this county, then he would sign if, and thut we need not le uneasy, that be would not cut undents in rates. Thii la$t remark km made more than ouce. Tbe contract was not higued in wri ting, but was, most poiititcly verbal- !y agreed to. Liddle moved bis office into tbw county and issued the ilrst number January 19, 1881. After his office bad been moved to Moss Point Lid dlo was npproached by Richmond and nuked to sign the contract as agreed upon, but refused to do so. At a later period bo was ap proached by Mayers upon the sub ject, and he still refused to sign the contiact, aud never hassigned it. But after agreeing,to sign t ho con tract he took a legal advertisement at less; than lej'tilrate, notwiih standing he keeps a notice nt the head of his columns .staling that all legal advertisements will be inserted in the Advertiecr nt statute rates. Iu taking this advertisement at a less rate he clearly violated the contract as agreed upon by us. The above is a clear statement in as condensed form tin possible, of tho origin of tho difficulty between the parties concerned, and we give it to the public that they may judge as to who has spoken the truth in tho mutter, and that they may see which party has violated a contiact Voluntarily entered into.

Last Sunday night a fiendish at tempt w- made to wreck the coast excursion train on tue Lt. uuu ri. railroad ns it was approaching New Orleans. The long train, crowded with excursionists, bud approached to withiu a short dis tance of the city, being near the place where the track is crossed ty that ot tbe Northeastern, when the explosion of u torpedo ou the track and the swinging of a red lantern caused the engineer to promptly stop bia engine and investigate the cause ot tbe danger signals. The discovery was made that one of the rails bud been removed, and bnt (or tbe action ot a colored mau in giving this signal, a serious acci dent would have occurred. Tho rail was quickly replaced, and the train bore the excursionists safely back to the city. In a letter to a New York paper a personal friend of Gen.

Louis, .Hiss., May 20, 1881, Editor Democrat-Star: You published last week an item about the case of Henry Fuvre vs. August Kel ler at Bay ft. Louis. The statement was ouo-sidrd and Incorrect. I deiusud that the whole troth be published, and I state it as briefly as is consistent with Justice to thesnbject. In AYarch, lH-O, the supreme court of Mississippi decided that the imprison ment of Bourgeois by Keller, as Mayor, waa illegal and "false imprisonment." Tbo case of Kavre was a similar case, only clearer in its illegality. Sue 60 Miss. 663. Tliemipou, I brought suit for Kavre against Keller to May term, 1-183, for false imprisonment, aud laid damages at 12,000. It was foregone conclnnion, that, upon the law of the case, plaintiff ninst win. The facts Were equally impreguable, and the only question was, end Is, what amount the jury shonld assess the plain tiff's damages. At the first term defen dant appeared, behind two lawyers; R. 8eal, one of them, cum forth and declar ed that dofoudant was so auxlous for trial tbat he would waive legal delays and try the case at ouce. I promptly replied that I wenld accommodate the defendant and try it immediately. I kusw this was "a blnff," on tho poorest possible ''hand" and I "called', it, and the result was a square "baokout" by defendant. I called the case np again aud again for trial, and could not get Keller or his lawyers np to the scratch. Keller, Instead of meeting the ease as an iunocent man woald do, and vindicate himself by atrial aud a triumph, tried to drive plalutiff out of conrt as a pauper, aud made outh accordingly. Favre admitted he was noable to flud se curity for oosts, or oash np a deposit In stead of making the issue at once as to pauperism, Keller waited six months, and then made an afmlavit that Favre was not a pauper that ha was a barber aud an able-bodied man, and between the two vocations ot bnrbering, onrt working as a day laborer when he oonld not sari, that he could save up money enough to pay tbe costs. Upon this affidavit, motion win mads to dismiss ths suit, because Fswre'e affidavit wss "probably untrue, or that his snit was frivolous or malicious." Bnt this motion was not pressed at tbe term when made, November, lt03, nor pressed at all, uutil the oosd was callod tor trial, But defendant, instead of be ing ready at tbe tint term, as the law re quires, with h s pleas, beggod for sixty days delay and Incubation to hatch np a defense, and Dually a plea of Justification (both in form and snbstanoe, a plsa of jnstinostion) was filed. But as it was good for nothing as a plea, and would have bsen demurred out of court it they hut csll.1 it by its rijjbt aim, they d& siijnjfcit it as "a motut ual-r ths geunal v-u.' to i cou ii not urtmir is it I Ka hearing the tuutxxi to diivetu Pnier oat vf court, a rival barixrr, lla Wr, was put up as a witness, wbo testi fied to his opinion, tbsl 1'avr aat a bet ter barber's stand th-iu he, Huber, and be beJierwl that Favre coetd, by the JoabW vocation ef Uir'xr au.l day Lborsf, aud by sik1 habits ami ecoiwuiy art up mouey uouj;ti to py it) e.U of bis suit.

Hut it would viiuli cale the law und peisonul liberty, which is the main purpose of the xui . Now, ts to tlio luvr of this case, it Is easily found. Scclien IS article 1st of couslitutiou of otu .State is .' "Ml court shsll lie oueu, an t every person, for an in jury done bim in his lauds, goods, perse or reputation snail hav remedy by dim course of law, and right an t Justice ad ministered without sufe, sVaiai or delay." lu Kyle vs. Btinson, 13 M. & M. the su preme court says it is uerer Vo lair to put up secrrity fur costs if put up w hen the Suit is ready for trial. lu Henry vs. Bhepard M Mis. l'.M, the Courts ys: "This suit was dismisssd by tbe circuit Judge without plaintin being allowed to go to the Jury. This action was based aud is sought to be upheld on two gruumU; 1st, That plaintiff failed to give security for costs wbou thereto re quired by BRidavit riled ; and second, that tlio declaration did nor disclose a just cause of action. Plaintiff commenced her snit is forma pauparit by taking tho oath prescribed by K71 of the code. Hav ing so commenced It sh was eutitled to prosecute it to tlusl judgment, aud cannot be deprived of the right by a niolios for security tor costs, nndur 572. Tbe hitler of these scctinus is modified and ooutroil ed by tbe former, or iu other words, 571 acts as a proviso on 67t. :Tlie circuit Judge hal no right to dis miss th suit as showing no jutt cause of ant on. The declaration ia curruetly drawn. The suit was for damages sus tained in the willful and wngful killiug bv plniutiS, of defeuduut's cstciess. 'The damage are laid at tr,00U. Thit claim of damage seem ludicrously, If not maltciositir excessive, bnt thit will not pre vent tuoh recovery ss the plalutilt may thow herself eu titled to, nor does tbe cause of action full within ths maxim it H'nimit soa csrnf Ics. ' The cuuho is reversed and reiutmled, and writ of proordento awarded." I never bring a suit for a tort without first assuring raysett that the case it Im- Fregnabls, both iu law and In fscts, and know that this oase Is such. I never, in the thirty yenrs ot my practice, lost a suit for f) tart, nnd when I bring such a snit it ai-sJl not be dismissed because of the pov erty of my injured client. If he hst no money I have a plenty of it fur the pur pose, and tbe trial shall proceed. Tbi ease hat ceased to be persoual to th par tie to the snit, and it now beoomet one of deep and goneral interest and involves the grave question, whether a poor man's cause csu be bustled out of court unheard and nntried, ouly because he It a poor man. This cause I now espouse as a law yer, in behalf of humanity and civil lib erty, and It tball go ou. 1 would at ouce commenco a ucw suit and put np my own mouey or boud for costs, but tho uow suit would be met with tbe criminals plea ot the statute of limi tations, aud defendaut would esoppe as Kellogg escaped the Star route Indint ment, ou thit cut-tliruat plea. The rea son why tbit motion wss not promptly mode and tried was bceauso defendant waited for the statute of limitations to Intervene. I now dare Keller to waive th statute ot limitat.Ont, and 1 will commence a new suit and put np tbe money for ths costs. But be will not. At It is, 1 propos aud expect to try thit case next Msy under a muudate of the supreme conrt, and at the presiding Jmlce hat prejudged th raoritt ofthiiense by expressing an opun that it it "mvllclons," I propose to trf It be fore another )udgti, who bat not prejudged it.
