P. K. MA YERS77.7.T..'... editor Scranton, Mississippi: FRIDAY, November 18, 1887, TO ADVERTISERS. The DEMOCRAT-STAR is the oldest newspaper on the Missiasppi Gulf Coast ; has a larger bona Jide circulation than any other newspaper in this section ; therefore, it is the BEST advertising med ium. Advertisers, bear this in mind. PROTECTION OF 0Y6TEE3. J. OTJTt AOENT8. Tba followiug gentlemen a .e authorized to oollect all duos to the Dkocrat-$tar offiae uj Jeceipt for the same : Mr. H. F.

Circuit Cocet at Mississippi City. Monday week Dipxhbria is making deadly ravages in St. Louis. The Democrat faTAtt lias room lor a few rnoie pajing advertise uients. Billy Mahone, of Virginia, was completely sat down on at tbe late election. IF you waut to keep posted on Jackson county matters, subscribe for the Democrat-Star, theoflieinl orgau ot the county. Fred Grant, ttie Republican lor Secretary of State ot New York, got badly left at the election oti the 8th. Bishop McTyeike has wiitteu a letter urging that the grand jury indict Miss Em ina Abbott for dis turbing religious worship. Col. J. Botts Deason, Inde peudent Kepublican, beat the regu lar Democratic nominee in Lincoln county tor the Legislature. The Virginia Legislature stands: Douse two-thirds and Senate three fourth Democratic. Mahone is per manently retired from politics. The Interstate Commerce Com mission is glowing short of funds. The $100,000 appropriated by Con gress has beeu already expended, and not half of the work nudertakeu has been finished. The Democratic paity made no nominations in liankiu county. It was a scrub race, and two colored Republicans go to the Legislature. And the "free State" of Rankin lias always beeu Democratic. Mr. T. W. Brajik, of Scooba, bas moved to Meridian and formed a copartnership with Uon. James II. Kerille in the practice ot the law. The firm isBrame & Neville. We wish the new firm success. It is hardly probable that Presi dent Cleveland will have any op position to bis re-election in 1888. Bloody Shirt Jimblaiue ears he bas concluded not to be a candi date for the Presidency again. Gen. Gordon denies be kissed Gen. Morgan. Gen. Morgan tusists that he was not kissed. It will no longer be necessary for their re epective wives to insist that they shall nse sand and a corn cob before puttiug up their pouting lips to be smacked. THE heavy forest fires in Illinois, Indiana and West Virginia have worth of timber, and should serve as a warning to owners ot Southern timber lands that the time it uear at band when they will largely in crease in value. The Democrat-Star is still popular iu 1J an cock county. Many of the old subscribers of this paper Lave paid op and many new names have been added to our already large list of subscribers in Hancock. We shall strive lo make the Democrat-Star more interesting as a political and family newspaper. Col. Ben Lake Tosey has sold eut bis Gy Coatt Progre at Bay St. Louis, to Mr. E. J. Bowers, who will hereafter edit and manage said paper. Mr. Bowers is not au en tire stranger to the newspaper bus iness, lis bas had abort experi ence as so editor. Lie proposes to enlarge and oibtrwie improve the Prtgreu and maks it s power la the lnl for pood. Ws wish oar young frto4 nucvces. We have bi lore directed atten tion to the importance of the better protection, by law, ot our natnral oynter beds or reefs. The Legisla tureof 1834 conferred npou board of supervisors fall jurisdietiou to protect and regulate fishing in their respective counties, but it bas done very little good, especially since it bas failed to cure ono of the groat est evils in oyster fishing that of recklessly destroying the naturn beds by raking up and carrying away the young without culling. The law makes it a misdemeanor, without leaving it to boards ot supervisors, tor any one to rob bird's nest. We see no reason why it should not also be made a crim inal offense, punishable, with eveu grerter severity, to rob an oyster nest. That is just what taking oysteis without culling amounts to. It is taking ont of their nest and destroying the young oysters that are ureless, simply to save the trouble to put them back to grow. That an "up the conn try" legislator may mote fully understand, wo will state that these reefs or oyster nests are large beds of oysters that grow naturally in favorable localities in the Mississippi Sound, and from which oysteruieu get their supplies by the boat load. They are public troiertv. and practically inex- haustable if proper care is observed iu taking them up, to cull or knock oft and drop back into the water, the young oysters that are in small shells attached to larger ones. This is what every oystenneu under stands and ought and will do if he has a proper regard for tbo public interest, and his individual inter est, too, for that matter. But on the contrary the same reckless dis regard of results prevails iu this as in that which necessitated the pass age of the game law. Grevious complaints are made of this abuse ot public property, but there seems to bo no adequate remedy for it. The law makes a misdemeanor and punishes as such the poisoning or other reckless de struction of the fish of the creeks and branches that me mere luxu ries and preserved more for sport than lor bread, and leaves unpro tected these reservoirs of bread, meat and clothing, for many fami lies are almost entirely supported by them. The oyster business on the Mississippi Coast is no small thing, but a source ef large revenue, worthy to be protected and foster ed by tbe laws of the State. These oyster beds are very valuable aud ought to be guarded against abuse with equal jealousy as that with which we guard from abuse our foreaty, our game or fresh water THE ASAECHI3T8 BWIN0. Four of the Chicagti anarchists, August Spies, Geo. Kugel, Adolpb Fischer and Alfred Parsons, were hung at Chicago, at 11:54 o'clock ou Friday last, the lllh insf.

One of our ambitious young men recently came across the following sentence in the last novel of Mrs Augusta Evans Wilson. ''At the Meicy of Tiberius:" "Bucolic paradise of Battus aud Bombyce, of Corydou and Daphuis, may it please the beirophants of Sanskrit lore, of derivative Aryan philology, of iconoclastic eubemer ism, to spare us yet awhile tbe love ly myths that dance across the asphodel meads of suuuy Cicily." As soon as he could partially re cover from a fit of cold chills and dizziness with a threat of lock jaw, he went for the sentence lb u sly : "Cramp colic paragraph of baw ble and bombshells, coroners and damphinos, may it please the heiio phauts of novel lore, of pure Amer ican philology, of iconoclastic isms, to spare ns yet awhile the perplex ing myths that dance beuealb thy pedantic microscope. EEJIOVE THE QUARANTINE STA TION FROM SHIP ISLAND. It may bo a little early, but nev ertbeless, we appeal to our Legisla lire that assembles next January, rather to those we elected to seats iu the Legislature last Tues day, to make the removal of the quarantine station from Ship Island, opposite our lovely and progressive South Coast, one ot the first ot) iects to be accomplished. Its ires en en thero is a threat ami a menace that is unendurable, and while the spread ot yellow fever from the Island to the main shore might be guarded airainst by tireless vigi lance, there is little hope of escape from cholera if persons aftected with that disease are allowed to be nun run teed there. Yellow fever must be imported like cofteo or oth er merchandise, but cholera rules the winds, as it were, and a shot gun quarantine that proved every w here effective against the advance ot yellow fever iu 1878, would be uo barrier or impediment to its de vastating march. We hope aud (rust that every man elected to the Legislature of 1888, will go dowu to Jackson de termined to do all in his power to secure the removal of this pest bouse. Aberdeen Examiner. Endorsing tbe above we would add the suggestion that our Sea coast members elect who lake seats in the next Legislature thoroughly post themselves ou this important subject and be prepared to furnish the facts to Congress by it suitable memorial. To do this will require painstaking investigation, for it is not a question involving a simple blotting out of existence of a use less scare-crow, but rather the wise aud prudential changing of the locu in quo of a necessary institution. Dr. John Moody, at Van Eaton, Perry county, bad bis bouse aud furniture destroyed by fire Tuesday of hut week. The Doctor and bis wife were away from borne when the accident occurred.. There were three small children at home when tbe fire bioke out, and they became so frightened that they could not save anytbiug. It is supposeU it as a defective flue that caused the fire.

In if to know that the Gulf and Shin Island Bail road Company has filed a mortgage for $7,000,000 to secure, tba brst issue ot bouiia for the completion of that load which is now uudor course of con f,tiTictiou from two and one-half miles west of Mississippi City to a junction with (he Memphis una ----- . . ...-..- Charleston just beyond lue anssis sippi line. The total lougth ot the road will be about 350 miles, of which 00 miles from Middletoii, Tonu., to Pontotoc, Miss., is com Dieted, aud about 77 miles to con ncct with tho New Orleans and Northeastern at Hattiesburg, is ex pected to be finished by next Janu- arv. Wbeu the Gulf and Ship Island road reaches Hattiesburg it should aid Mobile at once iu building from this city to Hattiesburg. Mobile is the natural terminus of the Ship Island road. An artiricial terminus at Mississippi City is entirely uu certain as to rtsults. Harbors pre cede railroads, it a baibor at Mis sissippi City had ever been intend ed by Divine i'rovulcnce, it would have been constructed there. The railroad cannot make it. If a ship were. to try to Lie oS ot Mississippi City iu it storm, she would roll tier musts out. Mobile is the proper harbor for that road. Mississippi City as a nv wheel attachment will do very well. That will be a very pleasant place tor the up country Mississippi-it! to spend the summer and wasli on the red in ml, but it will never do us a seaport. Let us all go to work to bring tiio leu leg of the Unit and Ship Island Bailroad here to Mo bile. With its left foot at Mobile and the right foot at Mississippi City, and its head lying upon ihu hills ot Pontotoc, the blu( Island road will' be a success. Mobile Ileg-inter.
