Thanks to lion. L. 0. Manuel for valuable public documents. They say that the Whitney boom In this State died a-bornlng. The Grand Lodge of Masons of this State will meet at Biloxi next Feb ruary. We are Indebted to Congressman Walter M. Denny for a copy of chart "D.," Gulf of Mexico. Gov. McLuurin hug not pardoned Marshall, Fox and Coleman. Tbey are still in the pen. Tbey say Mississippi is a silver State with two gold tugs Cutchings and Denny. That Is all right. A bill has passed both Houscsglvlng the public schools of our State, for the years 1896-7, $92.5,000 annually. Senator George favors an elective judiciary. We think "Old Trace Chains" is wrong In favoring such a measure. The Republican State Convention meets In Jackson on Wednesday, 4tb of March, and the Congressional Con vention is to be held at Pass Christian on Friday, March 6th. Gov. McLaurln has appointed lions. F. A. Critz, of West Point, and L. B. Franklin, of Columbus, trustees of the Industrial Institute and College. Good selections. Hon. J.

Several days ago Mr. Nye was stricken with paralysis, which was me immediate cause of his death The Legislature Is getting too eco nomical oy rar. An effort is being made to reduce salaries of State offi cers, Judges, Chancellors and District Attorneys, and also to cut down the pay of members of the Legislature from $400 to 1150 for the session, which wo oppose.

Denny. 1 he above extract and accompan ing correspondence form Intcrestin reading to all who feel an interest in the sublect of "sound money." Our distinguished Congressman. Hon. W. M. Denny, is sound to the core on the financial question. At the time of his election his views were well un derstood by his constituents. There has never been anvambiirultv either In the 'expression of his views or his ofllcial acts, and a sensational effort to make cheap capital out of his alleged "flop" ends In a most ridicu lous failure. Judged by his eminent talent and Arm stand on the burning question of the day. Mr. Denny do- serves re-election to his present high post, and we predict his return to Ctifess'. " SHIP ISLAND COMMEBOE." Under tho above caption we publish elsewhere a most Important commun ication, which recently appeared in the New Orleans Times-Democrat. The writer evidently knows whereof he speaks, and every word is as true as Holy Writ. With all due deference to our sister town, Biloxi. It is not iu it with Tascagoula at any stage of the game, when it coiuqs to coramcr- clal a(3 vantages The dav Is near at hand when Tns- casroula will take her nlace as the U'cat Gulf Port.

A recently unearthed Item in the books of the War Department reveals the fact that the cost of President Davis' capture was $97,032. Northern "patriotism" conies high. Two new postolflces have been re cently established in this State. In Jones county called "Blackburn," with W. M. Duke as postmaster. The other In Hancock county is named "Ken ton," with G. A. Keergoslcn us post master. To those in search of tlneclothine we call attention to the card of Messrs. Gardiner & Schercr, merchant tailors, 129 Carondelei street, New Orleans- Mr. Schercr Is a well-known favorite among the well-dressed contingent of the Crescent City. Congressman Milford Howard, of Alabama, a Populist member of Con gress, was carried out of the House tho other day, being unable to walk. He had reached that delightful staa-e of Intoxication where he didn't care which way the wind blew. The wind retaliated by blowing through his whiskers. The Bilnxl Herald favars the rc- nominatlon of Congressman Denny, and relative to those gentlemen who arc at present rumored will seek the nomination, says they "ure of too small mental calibre to be worthy of consideration as suitable congression al timber." Hon. W. II. Maybln. of Biloxi. and Miss Mary Evans, of Jackson, were united in marriage in the Bantist church at the latter place, oa Tues day, 23th Inst., at noon, Rev. Dr. Sprolls, officiating. The bride is the beautiful and accomplished daughter of Cupt. Joe J. Evans, ex-State Treas urer and present president of the Rail road Commission. Tho groom is a prominent and talented lawver of Biloxi, who Is very fortunate In secur ing such a noble woman as the bride is known to be, for a helpmeet. The church was crowded to Its utmost capacity with frlendsof the contract ing parties to witness the ceremony. At 1:87 n. m. the haDDV counle boarded the train en route for Biloxi, their future home.

Galloway, of .lack- Ion, and Mr. Gerard Harris, of the llarion-Lcdger. ' Mr. Dees Is the fosterer of the scheme for developing a deep water harbor on the Gulf Coast, and since be became a member of the House he has worked hard toward tills end. At the beginning of the session lie In troduced a resolution looking to the appointment of the committee, of which he is now chairman. The reso olutlon was killed by thecommittee tp which it was referred. After let ting it remain in a state of quietude fyr sometime, Mr. Dees sprung his idea again, and this time with success, for the resolution was unanimously adWed. Mr. Dees explained his ideas in ask ingjthat the committee be appointed, ind-thc plums which he hopes to see becotlie realities, as follows: Mississippi has need of a harbor, a deep water luirtor of her own, and there Is no reason why she should not have it. At Ship Island and at Horn Island there are two deep water har bors us good as any on the coast. At Ship Island there Is 20 feet of water, but a wharf of some ten miles long is needed to reach It. The harbor at Horn Island Is more cleglble, as there Is, or would be, with a small amount of dredging, 25 feet of water at a distance of three miles from shore. My plan is as follows, In the event that Horn Island is chosen us the site for a deep water harbor: build a wharf out to deep water, from Pascagoulu. There is a road already built from Most Point, In ennnwt, with thn Hiilf and Ship Island at Stonewall, 20 miles westwaru. or, ouuu irom i ascagouia t,n Srrnntnn. n tiiIIh nnrl u liulf uw.iu connecting with tho Louisville and Nashville. Then utilize the connec tion of the Louisville and Nashville with the Gulf and Ship Island at Gulf- Plirt. Thpn hnilrl nrruirl iwirtli tlir.umh the State at a point equidistant from tne lines oi tue uiuisviiic arid lasn ville and Illinois Central Uallroads. Theso roads are at certain points in the State a hundred miles apart, and there are counties in the State which are not touched at any part by a rail road. Unn this line through to Mem phis, crossing the Hue of the Illinois Central at Oxford. What we want In Mississippi is an Increaleln railroad facilities. There has been a complete revolution of sentiment regarding them since our Constitution was framed. The Pascagoulu delegation appoint ed to meet the Legislative Deen Water Investigating Committee join ed them Thursday noon nt Horn Island on tug Loo. Tho State solons had already proceeded to that point on the Revenue Cutter Seward. J After taking soundings and review- ma tue situation, tue entire party will proceed to Scranton and be enter tained as beflts the cause they repre sent. A meeting will bo held this (Thurs day) night at the court-house, where speeches will be made on the subject. Friday will be devoted to a visit up tho rascagoula river and un oppor tunity afforded of viewing the exten sive commercial Interests of this sec tion, chief among which aro the large number of extensive saw mills. A trip to the creosotlng works at West rascagoula will also bo taken. Senator Gray lias Introduced a bill authorizing the Mobile, Jackson and Kansas City to locate Its railroad In the State," and also ono authorizing the execution of bond and mortgage upon the property of tho company. We believe now that the road will be built. Mobile has already subscribed half of tho amount required by the promoters of this enterprise, and It Is expected that tho remainder will be forthcoming In a few days. The mtich-talked-of prize fight be tween Robt. Fitzsimmons and Peter Mahcr took place at Langtry, Mexico, Friday, and lasted only ninetv-flvc seconds, Mahcr being knocked out in the first round by the big Australian. Water Valley people are making preparation to build three new churches. The Methodists have broken ground for an edifice to cost $3,000, and the Presbyterians and Baptists are hustling Mr subscriptions, the former want a 110,000 building while the latter will be satisfied with one costing 18,000.

To tho Editor of The Times-Deinociut: In Its Issue of Feb. 13 the Picayune published. me following article unrii the head of "Late Shipping' News :" 'Biloxi, Feb. 12. The following vessels are In the port of Biloxi, aggret. gating jmio tons, loading with lumber at mho island." Then follows a list of vessels, which Is correct! after the list of vessels comes tho assertion : "It is probable tuat tne a Dove vessels win load near 10,000,000 fector lumber, and this is independent or vessels lying at Horn isianu." Now, the latter part of this nsser tion is what 1 take exception to. Any one not well acquainted with tlie facts would think I rum the above that Horn Island wasun adjunct to Ship Island and the port ot Biloxi. while such is not the case by any manner of means. Let me, for the benefit of ttie read ing public, state a few facts: Biloxi. or Ship Island, which is tho loading berth for vessels loading at Biloxi. has a good many ships to load with H;iu oer, nut where does this lumber come iromr tturelv the goon people of li ox do not wish the publie to think that it comes rrom there. 1 have known or two or three small schooners being loaded at Ship Island with lumber that came from llaudsboro, and from Stonewall, but I have yet to hear of a vessel of any size being loaded with anything but oyster shells or shrimp at Biloxi that did not come- from a distance, and principally from Pasca goula. Now, then, why does Pasca- gouia nave ncr lumber and timber towed a distance of thirty miles and shipped from Ship Island? Simply oecausc mere is auout ten or twelve Inches more water on the bar at Ship Island than there Is at Horn Island, which is tue ioaaing Dcrtu ior rasca goula. if the United States government would give Horn island an annronr la tion and deepen the pass a foot or more, there would he no more vessels at Ship Island, the lumber merchants (all of which' have tliicr headquarters at tno port or rascagouia or at scran ton or Moss Point, two towns within the limits of tho port of Pascagoulu) would be saved this immense expense or towage, to wit: & cents a thousand feet, the government would be saved the expense of running a custom house at Biloxi, and our already large export trade greatly Increased, for at present vessels drawing over 21 feet B inches cannot load eveu at Ship Island. To show the fallacy of the claims or tho Biloxi correspondent! would state there is only one lumber yard at Bi loxi, and it fs supplied by Pascagoulu per Louisville and Nashville Railroad and lighters; there is not an office of a lumber or timber shipper in the town; Micro Is not a contracting stevedore in tno place, and even the colored laborers who do the manual labor of stowing tho eargo are sent down from Puscagoula. . By publishing the abovojfou will greatly oblige Am Indignant Pascagouman. Since the opening of bawdy houses at Biloxi, much to the abhorrence of tho best people there, certain yoobg men lost to self-respect have made themselves obnoxious on various trains by open familiarity with lewd women. On Sunday a well-known Biloxi saloon keeper, whoso establishment Is near the depot, took advantago of the conductor's temporary absence from the ladles' coach. His undue atten tions to the frail woman who accom panied him, disgusted the respectable passengers. A repetition of such dis graceful conduct will bo followed by well merited punishment.

Strong will be the pressure to lure or frighten him back into tho heterodox fold. Already the big guns of the silver press are loaded for the purified statesman when he gets in range. An editor not a million miles from our sanctum has presented Mr. Denny in the attitude of a digger of his own grave; talks about the oblivion that awaits him at the close of his present term;1 etc. There will be an avalancho of such Jargon ad nauseam. Mr. Denny hu been bold euotigh to do rlht, when, probably, it would have been more Joyful and nrotl table to continue doing wrong. Wo believe he will be bold enough to remain tlrrn.
