THIS PAPER IS ALL HOME PRINT. Scranton, Mississippi: FRIDAY MARCH 6, 180fl. Speaker Reed tins been endorsed by tho Texas Republicans for President. Delays In the trial of criminals often blindfolds Justice and brins on mob law. ' Archbishop Ireland has been elected President of the American Anti-Saloon Leaguo. Aberdeen has organized a stock company for the manufacture of car riages and wagons. Eugene V. Debs is to be Invited to visit, Jackson during his tour of the South, by the labor leaders of that city. Senator Davis, of Minnesota, is about the only leading statesman who is dissatisfied with the Monroe doc trine. The records of the United States mints show that the gold product of the South Atlantic States has in the hundred years been over $43,000,000. The House indefinitely postponed the bill providing for a more speedy trial of capital cases. One object of such a law Is to prevent mob violence The Senate has passed a bill author izing boards of supervisors to employ civil engineers at their discrimination to furnish plans for bridges and other .improvements. ".The Congressional Record, dated 'jSQiih of February announces that Congressman Denny Is confined to his r-bed by sickness. Ve hope it is notn t iug serious. The Lower House of Congress has i passed, a bill appropriating $150,000 i for the distribution of seeds, making ' It mandatory on Secretary Morton to . distribute seeds as heretofore. Senator George says if judges and chancellors arc elected their terms should be extended for eight years, ;and Unit supreme court judges should bold for twelve years. Hon. II. Dudley Coleman, a Repub lican of New Orleans, tried to oust Hon. Chas. F. Thick, Democratic Rep- rescntative in CongresR, from his scat, but did not succeed, as Mr. Ruck was -.declared elected. Why Has The State of Mississippi No Great City? Every effect has a cause, and when we look at the effect (which we may call a negative effect) it is not difficult to find an answer to the question in these head lines. The great State of Mississippi has nut built a city within her borders. Not because the people of the State are a negative or do-nothing people, but because their efforts in the direc tion suggested have been misdirected. The people of the State of Mississippi have expended their efforts in city building upon the four great cities near, but beyond her borders, namely: New Orleans, Mobile, Memphis and liirmingliam, and arc now contribut ing largely to the city of Helena, in Arkansas. No State, not even the State of Louisiana, his done more to build New Orleans than Mississippi. Alabama has not contributed more to build Mobile and Isirmingham than the State of Mississippi. Memphis has drawn on the Statu of Mississippi for the lion's share of her greatness, and the city of Helena, Ark., is forg ing her way to a front seat among the cities of the country on trade largely drawn from Mississippi. Had the wealth of commerce, which the State of Mississippi has contri buted to the cities before named been directed to the building of a Gulf Tort city on her own border, the result would have been a city on her coast, with a population and commerce greater than that of New Orleans, and a water rumor not equalled on the coast. Our Legislature has at last moved in the right direction ; it has sent an able committee to examine her coast for deep water, and the possibilities for making it deeper. It makes no difference to tho State whether Gulf- port, Iiilox Ocean Springs or Pasca goula uets tho advantage in this com mittec's report all arc on the State's coast, and so far as the people of Mis sissippl are concerned, cither Is ac ceptable, it may he regarded as fortunate for the State and for the enterprise foreshadowed, that so many points present favorable position. The competition, which will exist on the various points of the coast is an element of success for one of them The beginning will depend largely on the people of the locality which may be selected in the encouragement given by them to those who may come to help the enterprise. One point may be inflated with a feeling of sc ctirlty, which may drive from it the advantages it possesses and elect a point with less advantages by giving the assistance which a fair divide will secure to Influence to be attracted from abroad. The terms offered by different points to capital and people that may come, Is an important factor in the coming selection. A very small tiling may spoil a great thing, a single vote may send one candidate to greatness and the want of a vote may consign an other to obscurity.

Up to last Saturday there had been a total of about 000 bills introduced in Loth Houses of the State Legislature, ; and out of this number only about .2') have run the gaunlct of both Houses and become laws. The St. Louis Globe-Democrat has discovered evidence which demon strates that the Republican party was born in Ripon, Wis., March 20, 1H.U It has consequently attained its 42d year and is quite old enough to know better. ' The able Natchez Democrat tliinks that as the spirit of economy now rules In the Mississippi Legislature it would be well for the legislators to cut off all mileago and require tiie members to walk or travel per ox team to the capital. Stllson Hutchins, a prominent Ohio politician and sagacious statesman, thinks Win, R. Morrison, of Illinois, should be tho Democratic Moses, lie says the man and the location would suit the South and West, and they could elect him. The wavs and means committee of the Legislature has reported its bill It provides for an Increase to six mills tax for the Hscal year 1890-7, and also the issue of a quarter of million or four year 5 per cent, bonds, and an In crease of tho privilege tax. Gen. J. B. Weaver says that he has had enough of being a Presidential candidate, and the Populists will have to get some other man for a standard bearer. It Is rather monotonous to be a candidate all the time, to be sure. Several coast towns are talking '.'canning factory." Any oue seeking investment in this line will do wel' to visit Scranton before selecting a site. We have advantages equal to the best. Tbo Dkmociut-Stak has advocated such an enterprise for years. Mrs. Mollio Mc.Uco Sncll is now con ducting a scries of interesting relig ious meetings In tho Methodist church at Greenwood, which daily grow in In terest. It Is said that Mrs. Snell will pay this coast a visit Homctlmo during the summer und hold meetings. Mr. Jcbb, of St. Paul, Minn., who has been asked by tho courts to pay $3,600 for 2,000 kisses purloined from a neighbor's wife, may And some con solation In tho rellectlon that he hasn't had to pay a ccrlt for arnica, court plaster or fuoerul expenses. Tin' (Irw (Inn) on the liuliv plant. mis wutpcii the triuui emu torever. it isIettledatlast. the grit 1 1 Tying intelligence is an nounced that Mississippi is to have a new State House to cost not more than $1,000,000, including the furnish ing of the same. The Senate passed the bill appropriating that amount by a vote of two to one, and also voted to locate the building on the platoccu pied by the State penitentiary, which selection as the location instead of the present site of the old Capitol, is to be regretted. Aside rrom sentimental reasons, there are many cogent reasons in favor of the latter site. The superb view, the unsurpassed drainage, easy of ac cess, and other advantages possessed by tho site of the historical structure, appeals loudly, though In vain. The choice was made despite the able. sensible and patriotic protest of our Senator, Hon. E. J. Rowers, leaves room for the imputation of Interested motives against the members who voted down this amendment. Either that, or their action was misguided. The bill introduced by Senator Bowers and passed by tho Semite, changing the Jury system, provides for a commission of three gentlemen in each county, one appointed by the circuit judge, ono by the chancellor and ono by the board of supervisors. A box witli flvo compartments Is to be prepared and tho names of the quali fied Jurors of each supervisor's district shall be placed in this box, and shall be drawn therefrom alternately until the Jury is selected. Tho Senate has also passed a bill to exterminate glan ders and having diseased stock killed und paid for. Also a bill to get up a roster of those who served In the Confederate army. Tho silver newspapers of the State are Jumping on Congressman Denny with both feet becauso ho did not "flop" over to tho silver side of the financial question, Because Mr. Den ny voted according to tho dictates of his conscience and for what he deemed best for tho country ho Is abused. To carry their ends the free silver ad vocatcs would sink tho Democratic party into perdition, but notwith standing this hostility we predict that our Mr. Denny will bo returned to Congress at the next election should that gentleman bo a candidate. Mr. Denny's vote against the Senate sliver bill pleased us immensely. Some papers in tins congressional district, however, expressed their chagrin in very plain terms. Wo trust that Mr. Denny win continue to ngnt it out on the sound money line. Poplarvllle Freo Press. Friday morning was a pleasant day though somewhat a cloudy one.but the preparations of the night before were ample for the reception and ac commodation of the Legislative In vestigating Committee composed of Hon. Jas. T. Harrison, C. 1. Mitchell, Alexander Price, Rev. Irving Miller, W. A. lloyd. T, II. Somerville, A. T. Wood, W. T. Falkner, I. M. Byars, A. Lowcnthal, from the Senate; M. A. Dees, J. I. Bellinger, J. C. Carroll, J. S. Eaton, W. T. Johnson, J. F. Allen, S. M. Shunkle, J.. S. Hicks and L. G. Manuel from the House. The powerful steam tug Leo left Colle's wharf at 10 o'clock a. in., hav ing on board the following well-known business men of Moss Point, Scran ton and Pascagoula: Messrs. F. H. Lewis, C. S. Meriwether, J. A. Millet, W. M. Canty," W. W. Farnswortli, H. ISloonifleld, H. Gautier, Geo. Front., Geo. V. Ladnier, W. H. Mcintosh, F. Krebs, W. L. Ladnier, C. A. Greiner, V. Brown, J. P. Fox, J. E. Clark, E. Castenera, J. L. Dantzler, A. S. Denny, E. liloomtlcld, T. M. Evans, G. W. Howze, L. T. Belt, O. Randall and S. S. Henry, who were the Joint committee appointed by the Merchants' Association of Moss Point and the Pascagoula Commercial Ciub, to join the U. S. Revenue 'Cutter Seward and take charge of the dele gatlon from Jackson. The Seward was met off Horn Island when the delegation boarded the Leo. After partaking of an ele gant lunch, the Leo was headed for Horn Island Pass. They began tak ing the soundings about a quarter of a mile west of bony No. 0, the tug being headed cast by north, soundings being taken every 000 feet. Tho first sounding showed 21 feet of water, which suddenly shoaled to 13 feet, then deepened to 21 to 23 feet, then to 24 feet 6 Inches. About a mile from tliis point 23 feet was found. Here the water became shallower, sounding from 20 to 22J feet. A mile further to the eastward there was 18 feet of water, at tho opening of the pass there was 17 to 20 feet for about i mile, then it deepened to 21 and 20 feet. After reaching the eastward spit of the Island the lead showed 12 to 13 feet. At bouy No.' 3, the open ing of Horn Island pass first sound Ing was 25 feet and several hundred yards further out to sea there was 27 feet, the water for i a mile further varied from 23, 24 to 20 feet. On the edge of the inside bar 22i feet and on the bar proper 21 feet which shoaled to 21 feet. It was very near dark when the tug Leo and her guests reached Scranton. After partaking of a superb supper provided by the Pascagoula Commer cial Club and the Merchants' Associa tion at Mr. J. A. Miller's hotel, the jo.lnt committees and tho delegation from Jackson .adjourned to the court house whero tlere"wasa business meeting of the citizens presWwJjover by Capt. P. K. Mayers. The' meeting was first addressed by fion. Jno. M. l'elham, who illustrated to those pres ent by maps and charts the advant ages of Horn Island has over all other points on the coast. He was followed by Hon. M. A. Dees, who stated that he was In favor of the Horn Island enterprise, but thougnt it would be more feasible to build a railroad from Horn Island through Moss Point to Stonewall, Miss., and there connect ing with the Gulf and Ship Island Uailroad, thence extending to Mem phis, Tenn. It is his idea to extend the road to 20 feet of water, which the government could be induced to deep en to l.j feet by dredging. Ho sug- gested that the State issue $1,000,000 in bonds, half of which to be used In building this road over the route he proposed. Mr. E. Iiloomtleld stated that It costs 2," cents more a thousand feet to ship lumber to Ship Island than to Horn Island. Capt. S. R. Thompson also spoke, showing that it took nine miles to reach 20 feet of water at Gulfport, while the same depth of water could be found within three miles of Pascagoula. He was followed by Mr. T. M. Evans, of Moss Point, who showed that every year during tho last five years, 90, 641, 000 feet of lumber was shipped from Pas-cannula. At an early hour SaturJay morning the entire party boarded the tug Leo for a trip to Moss Point. All along the route- tugs and schooners were decorated, while tho visitors were saluted by the dipping of flags and the blowing of whistles of the differ ent mills. On their arrival at Moss Point they were received by Messrs L. N. Dant.ler, senior and junior, J. L. Dantzler, Robert Loughrldgo, Rev T. W. Adams, McKay Cowan and Capt. John Alberts. The tug was headed up the river through a boom of logs four miles In length, valued at $100,000. Here tho river became so blocked with lafts of logs coming dawn to the mills that tho steamer was obliged to return, thus prevent ing them from seeing another boom four miles In length. They were shown the L. N. Dantzler Lumber Co. 's mill, which cuts 200,000 feet of lumber a day. After viewing the mills of W. Denny & Co., Pascagoula Lum ber Co., Moss Point Lumber Co., Lake mills, tho Foundry and Spoke Handle Works of Mr. A. Blumcr and other enterprises, tho party took a special train over tho M. P. & P. R. R., for Pascagoula, where they had a bird's eye view of the shipping. Tho committee took a special train provided by the L. & N. R. R., and departed on their Journey home. A short stop was made at West Pasca goula, were the large cresotlng works of the Railroad Co., were inspected' Reaching Ocean Springs the party was greeted by the Columbian Brass Band and alarge number of citizens. When the party alighted on the platform Mayor M. C. Vaughan made a very pleasant adJress of welcome, handing over the keys of the town and placing the legislators in the care of the fol lowing committees: On arrangements Messrs. II. F. Russell, Newcomb Clark. O. Switzer, Geo. W. Davis, Jules Soule, E. W. Illing, T. B. Lynd, Jos. Kutzum, F. J. Lundy, II. II. Rich ardson, F. M. Weed, Tims. H. Friar, E. J. Morris and Dr. E. It. Bragg. Reception Mayor M. C. Vaughan, Col. R. A. Vanclcave, Messrs. R. H. Kerr, Jerry O'Keefe, Geo. E. Arndt, Herman Nill, H. F. Halstead, E. S. Davis, A- V. Rosambeau, G. W. Gray son, S. P. Starks, E. Downing, D. D. Cowan and J. F. Mead. Forming a procession the entire party proceeded to the Illinir House, where a splendid dinner was partaken of. Just before taking the special train lor uuitport, Col. R. A. Vanclcave addressed the legislators, in winch he showed by the U. S. marine charts that Back Hay has a natural basin and land locked harbor with 20 feet of water. Col. Vanclcave also made the statement that he was authorized by Mr. John T. Milliter, a millionaire of Fairview, Ala., to Kiy that if the State decided to locate the coast harbor nt Back Hay lie would expend $.100,000 out of his own pocket in dredging and con structing piers and wharfs, and fur thermore guaranteed to build from Ocean Springs a railroad through Mississiuoi to Memphis. Tenn. Senator Miller made a farewell ad dress to to the people of Ocean Springs, find the delegation boarded the train for Gulfport and home. State News Boiled Down. .Ycu tldrertUememU.
