BEER LICESSE MD THE ACT3 Or 1880. A 1 1 lie jrfjiifsl of tho Executive Committee of the Prohibition Chi I) l Meridian, Judge J.- S. lianim, Capt. S. U. Watts, tlie Messrs. V'ithrpoon, Messrs. Coch ran, (;. 1 . Wood and A. t. Jjoze man, prominent members of the bar of that city, have rendered written opinion on Ihe eJIocl of the local option law of 1SSG upon the uw as contained in tho Code of 1SS0. Amongotherlliines mention ed as modifications and changes, these gentleman have the follow ing to pay wit Ii reference to beer: "Under the Code of 1SS0 any party in Meridian could obtain a license to yell beer for a lee of $50 by a simple application to the sher iff, but, if Lauderdale county votes for the sale, thai can no longer be done. The local option law will then govern, and under that law, as we understand it, no person can obtain a license lo sell beer with out also obtaining a license to sell all other liquors, and paying the same license fees as other saloon keepers. Section 6 of the local option law classes together all al coholic, spirituous, vinous, malt and intoxicating liquors and intox icating hitlers, and other drinks which will produce intoxication and requites a license to be pro cured in the same way and on the same terms, whether said liquors are intended to be sold in Targe or small quantities, and whether the party desires to sell one or more of said liquors. Uefore selling any of such liquors the law requires him to give the bond and to pay tho tax required in chapter 39, Code 1SS0." In plain English these gentlemen construe the law to mean that if a county goes "dry" whisky and beer are prohibited together, and if a county goes "wet"' they are to be no longer separated or distinguish ed as in the Code of 1SS0, but a li cense lo sell one is a license to sell all kinds of intoxicants mentioned in section u ot Hie new act, the bond and license tax being the same, and without such lee and bond the sheriff cannot issue a beer license. This view seems to us the only lalional one. Surely the act of ISSti could not be strictly com plied will), except by requiring I lie beer dealer lo pay the tax and give the bond as provided lor in chap ter 30 ot the Code of 1SS0. It seems that the Attorney-General is of the opinion I hat the bond must be given, but doesn't venture furl her on chapter 39. If a beer dealer is lo be required to make application for license, get the re commendation of twenty-five free holders, and give the liquor bond, it does seem that he must, also, pay the liquor license. All dis tinclion seem? lo be done away wilh. Thk Chicago Times is authority tor the statement that a New York gentleman deposited $2,000,000 with George Everhart, a youn capitalist of Chicago, the day be fore Ihe convention met in that. city, to place on tho election of Cleveland against any whom the Republican convention might nom- inale the bet to be made in sums of $2,000 each and upward, before or after the convention should have finished its business. That will be a nice opportunity for Rad ical gudgeons to drop their money, The Springfield (Mass.) Uepulli can, which is Republican in politics as in name is hard on the radical platform, particularly those numer ous planks of it which deal with Ihe question of tariff, It savs: "We are to make ourselves rich bringing up the prices of what we buy. The American laborer is to be benefitted by raising the price ol what ho wears, what he he eats, w hat his house is built of. This is the American, Ihe national, the patriolicprinciplel It is the most astounding pro gramme that a great party ever laid before Ihe people." Don't fail to read the advertise ment of the new firm of Randall & Castanera, Moss Point. These young gentlemen are successors lo Mr. L. Randall. They will keep constantly on hand a.largeand well assorted slock of goods, suited lo the market. The local option election came off in Yazoo county last week, iu which Ihe whites only participated. The "drv side" received a majority of one hundred and seventy. The corn crop of this Slate will probably exceed that of last year, which returned Mississippi to her ante-bellum position of a ''corn surplus" State. COME ON A BOOM. The Mississippi Gulf Land, Lum ber, Improvement nnd Immigra tion Company is some on a boom, as the following would indicate, being one among n number ol cir culars issued by that Company : "The time is near at hand when the great Soul hern forest belt of Mississippi will teem with popula tion, and when its Coasts will form one continuous chain ot prosperous and busy cities; wiihin the next five, or possibly three years, the Pairama, and it is hoped the Nica raugua Canal, also, will be com pleted ; nnd when either or both of these events take place Ihe Gull of Mexico will veritably become Ihe "American Mediterranean and bo coursed in every direction by vessels Irom all of Ihe regions ol JNorth America, boutli AmeriC! Oceanica and Asia that are washed by the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans In that day of the near Jul tiro. many railroads will seek the Mis sissippi Coast in addition to those already built or projected, and along their lines through the pine lorests, and at their many cross ings and intersections, iiourislnn towns must spring up everywhere In this view ol ihe case, and its correctness is admitted by even the most casual abserver of cur rent events, the lands of the Soul! Mississippi pine belt must become the most desirable and valuaole on the Continel ; and tracts that are now held at prices that, as com pared wilh ruling rates elsewhere, mav be characterized as "nomi nal," will amount to figures so high as to entirely preclude I heir pur chase by any but persons of large means and resources. Under ordinary circumstances the land of Ihe pine belt, sympa thizing with the progressive move meat now so general throughout the South, mav be expected lo quadruple in value within the next three years; but in the event of Ihe opening tit ell her ot Ihe Inter Oceanic Canals the advance will be enormous and unprecedented in American annals." It is some such ideas a are ex pressed in the foregoing that has taken possession of a number of Northern land buyers, as is indi cated by tho tact I lint South Missis sippi lands are held very much igher among non-resident owners who will sell than by home owners, and a largo number who own thou sands of acres of these lauds will not sell at any price. It does seem that our groat lorest is threatening lo move down upon us, when land companies are bestirring them selves like the above mentioned M. and G. L., T, I. and 1. Co. In n long editorial article enti tled "Great Among Modern Politi cians," svhich opens wilh tho de claration, that "the greatest Amer ican politician of our day is Gro ver Cleveland," the New York Siih says : Verily, verily, in our day no poli tician has been observed who could compare iu ail the deep arts ol management, and of mastery with Grover Cleveland. And what is most lo be noted in this whole strange, eventful history is that he has employed none of I lie ordinary devices of popularity, none of the smiles, the lavors, and the flatter ies of common-place politics. On the contrary, his work has been done by methods so intellectual, so shrewd, so subtle, and so forci ble that nil opposition has been ex tingiiished, and submission and obedience rendered universal, Mit. Eaton J. Roweks has sever ed his connection w ith the Ray St Louis Progress, the entire control of the paper passes into Ihe hands of Mr. Archie R. Hart. Mr. Row ers is a fluent writer, and a young man of more than ordinary ability, and we regret his withdrawal from the press at this time. The type foundries of New York are considerably annoyed at the passage of the Mills bill. At pres ent there is a specific tax, but the new measure provides for an ad valorem duty of fifteen percent Ihe foundry men claim that this charge wi41 ruin their business. The local option election in Lau derdale County last Tuesday gave the advocates of the open saloon majority ot ono thousand. So Lau derdale is mighty wet now.

KAXtOII, IM. ,"Jnly 30, IHH", Eililor parnorrut-tiir : Iii vour issue of July -'Oth I asked the solution, or explana linn simply of a mathematical pro position, viz: "I had one father, two grandfathers, four groat grand fathers, and so on in an arithme (ical progression, each generation doubling in ancestor. Now, sup posing that we nil sprung from old father Noah, and bearing iu mind I hat my forefathers, say twenty generations back, could only be numbered by thousands, my query was tins; II my lorelitiiers in creased as we count back in 1 1 rue for many generations so as to be numbered by tnousands, what pro cess of figures or lacts can this genealogy or descent be reduced in numbers so as to get back into one man in the person of old father Noah." In vourissu'' ol July 27lh. Judge "Scrutiny," Irom the cool shades of hm ice house, comes out in what he calls a "Reply to Crank O. Cranky." What he wrote has no conceivable reference lo mv query, and shows that he his scrutinized rnv query just about like he has the Word of God, and as he can answer neither he seeks to ridicule them. As he has written nothing that has any bearing whatever on my query, I caenot answer him on that point or subject. But 1 would be glad to call the attention of your readers to t fie tact that he did in every instance (where he pretend ed to quote Scriptures) claim the Scriptures taught what they do not leach, lhey nowhere teach that Noah was a descendent of Cain. The Lfmech among Cain's descend ents was entirely a different man, and livnd hundreds ol . ears before Ihe Lantech of Seth's descendent., and who was the father of Noah, lie misquotes Scripture when he says lhn nil chapter ol Genesis, 21 to 24 verses inclusive, leaches "all lije was destroyed by lht Hood, lor t 1ih latter part ol verse 24, says : "iNoah only remained alive and al.1 that were with him in Ihe ark." lie then fails to scrutinize aright the 10th chanter. He savs "Ihe lands of Ihe (textiles were divided bv the sons r.f Noah. The Rible savs II was the Isles oi IheGenliles that were divided by the sons ol laphelli. that is, the sons ot Ja- phetli settled upon the islands llong Ihe sets and oceans, and these, in alter years, when Moses wrote the accounts, wore called the Isles til the Gentiles. "If "Scrutiny" wishes to join Col. Hob" in-his "Mistakes of Mo- ses," he should he man enough lo do so without trying lo push it in ts an answer to a simple mathe matical proposition, to which his disbelief iu the Bible can have no bearing. Chank O. Cranky. Yellow l'ine In Chicago. Chicago Timeiiniin. The wholesale dealers in Yellow pine have passed the half-way post in their year's buisness and hive loublo discounted the lime made in 1887, with sei val laps lo spare. One dealer savs, 'I have sold more lumber todale than Idid hist ear, and with less effort." Others are enjoying substantially the same good fortune. Of course, the local that is the ily and surburban demand has swelled thfl sale to Ihe present pro portions, ueaiers claim greal victories for the yellow wood over other lines for house finish. There is a surburban town a few miles north of Chicago, on the lake, that is the planned home of aristocracy Ry special provision made w hen Ihe lots are transferred it is agreed that, no house shall cost less than $5,000, that, is built within Ihe corporate limits of this village Many house have been erected there this summer, and without any special agreement lo assist in bending the will of the builder, it is said that these houses are being finished in yellow pine. The house finish feature of the demand, has been great the whole season th rough. Dealer expect the demand for car materials lo be small this sea son. According to usage, contracts tor stock lor delivery this season should have been made last De cember, ns about this time of year the different railroad manage ments aro able tell just what they n ill need during the next twelve months to come. Those lumber men who are very near to the car butldsrs claim that Ihe existing contracts, ihe long ends of which are tilled being now, ore about all that may be looked tor lor some time to come. - It will certain ly oe uue 10 a matter ot meagre dividends, for evidence is not want ing, that there is a general shortage in oox cars lor and lumber carry ing. Most of the orders given local wholesalers are filled direct from Ihe mill, and only on contract, so there will be no dead stocked piled up if a dull year comes. The Irish voters, when IIipv un derstand that Harrison's great an cestor, the regicide, Major-General uarnson, was one ol Cromwell's leading officers at Ihe mas-:arr nt Drogheda, will not be apt to be at tracted to Ihe Republican ticket bv anything Blaine can say, especialy when lhey learn additionally lhat Harrison was one of Ihe founders of the Know-Nolhfnff nartv. as Blaine was in the lace ol fact that his mother was an Irish woinim and a catholic MemuUt Appeal.

About six months ngo his wite also died A p.irl of the estate of Mr. Rich ardson consisted of Ihirty-seven plantations, lhere are live heirs to tho estates, four sons and one daughter. A novel method was adopted to make an equal nnd lair division ol these plantations among the heirs. Five lists were made out with Ihe names of seven plan tations nil each list one as nearly desirable as any of the others. The lists were numbered and cones ponding numbers placed in a hat. The parties in interest drew the numbers from tho hat, and each tcok for a share the list of seven plantations belonging lo the num ber drawn. Everybody was satis lied and pleased with the result, as Mr. Richardson had left his nllairs in such good shape, and had sho rn such good judgment in his invest ments that all the plantation-! arc desirable and profit-paving proper ty. 'The Refuge oil mills and Wes son's mills are still undivided, the heirs equally sharing in the profits of thee splendid industrial enter prises. Washington July 2S. The growth fd the Catiiolic religion among the colored people is becon ing very noticeable and many young men are studying for the priesthood. 'The church authori ties are encouraging Ihis mov ment, and recently an old hotel has been purchased for Ihe purpose of filling ii upas an institution for educating colored men for Ihe priesthood. 'The institution will be known as SI. Josephs Seminary, inl will ue opened iu Ihe hill in all probability. A colored Catholic organ in Cincinnati, which claims a circulation of 7,000, estimates the colored Catholic population of this country at 20,000. Out ol this large number of adherents to the church, there is only one colored priest in this country, the Rev. A. Tolton, pastor St. Joseph's church, Quincy, Ills. He was a slave before Ihe war and is a full blooded African. In Romo nnd in other pari of Europe, colored priest have charge of colored parishes. Jackson, Miss., July 24. Audi tor W. W. Stone to-day sent to Ihe various county treasurers vouchers for I heir portion of Ihe July semi annual distribution of the common school fund. 'The total amount of said distribution, including the fines nnd forfeitures retained iu the counties, is a little upward of $87,000. At the same lime the dis tribution lor the second quarter of moneys collected from the sale nnd redemptions of Stale lands was made. The receipts for this fund lor this quarter were the largest ol any recent years, nnd perhaps the largest ever made in any single quarter, being upwards of & 105,000. This includes $75,000 paid by the Louisville, New Orleans and Texas Railroad, under the recent act of the Legislature quieting Ihe title to certain ot Ihe company' land in the delta district.
