"Wardrobe" Miles to Cuba. is marching on A colored volunteer company been organized at llandsboro. has Governor McLaurin has asked the secretary of War for authority to raise a third regiment. The demand now is for private soldiers, notollleeis. Too many ollieers at headquarters now without com mands. The rainy season has begun in Cuba, but the health of the Island is good. Only a-few serious cases of sickness In ' the hospitals. (k The coast people are In a devil of a 'tflx ; dry, hot weather, war and quar . antine. We are certainly between the devil and the deep blue sea. We believe It will be a long time be fore Lieut; Ilobson will be exchanged If ever. He Is bad medicine and is the hands of his enemies. Capt. James K. Vardaiuan would not take It back, and that is the prin clpal reason he was not commissioned as captain of ttie Water Valley vol unteers. During quarantine time sensible people lose their heads. They are guilty of meanness, heartlcssncss and loonsuness. wm ttiey ever be par doned? ur.u.ti. iiorton, or tne Louisiana State Board of Health, has his head quarters at liiloxl for the summer, He Is assisting Dr. Folkes in hunting out yellow fever germs on the coast. We regret to hear that our old and esteemed friend, Col. Roderlc Seal, of Mississippi City, Is contlned to his bed again. Wc hope he may be restored to health soon. Dr. J. J. Washington, of Pass Chris tian, and Dr. J, J. Harry, of llands boro, have been appointed assistant surgeons in the United States army. Both superb appointments. Hon. Wm. J. Bryan, the great Apos tle of Silver, has been appointed Col onel of the Third Regiment, Volun teer Infantry from Nebraska, and the regiment has Just been ordered to the Philippines. Young Crank, one of the ollieers of the Merrimac, is a son of Judge W. II. Crank, of Houston, Texas. The young man was in the cyclone off the Saraoan coast, where he nearly met death. All the country is ringing with the praise of the heroism of Lieutenant Richmond P. Ilobson, the brave Southern man who commanded the Merrimac, and his gallant crew of seven. Mr. E. S. Candler, Jr., has with--drawn from tho race as a candidate for Congress against Private John Al len. This leaves W. H. Walker and Allen to fight it out. Allen will prob ably make the landing. The government Is getting along very slowly in arming and equipping our soldiers. The war will bo over before many of our best fighters will be ready to march to the front. Mobile has quarantined against Scranton, although our town never has been iri a healthier condition. But one case ot dengue is reported in Mo bile, still we are considered iu the In fected district. What foolishness I An extra session ot the Legislature will cost the State, at least, 110,000 and accomplish no good whatever. The old leaky State house Is a thing ot the past. Let it tumble down. Tho Itta Bena Optic newspaper out fit was destroyed by Are last week, Mrs. J. E. llolman, owner. The office was insured tor $2,500. Wc hope tho good lady will be able to collect the Insurance and revive the Optic again. Capt. John H. Miller has severed his editorial connection with the Bi loxi Herald. Mr. Miller is one of the most forceful writers in the State, aud withal a high-toned, cultured gentleman. We part with him with tlncere regret. WAR NEWS BOILED DOWN. American n:nrincs, in a bold dash against Spanish guerrillas' and regu lars, drove thcSpanards frumthclr po sition, killing about Ofty and captur ing eighteen prisoners. The enemy were discovered in an underbush half a mile from Fort MeCalla. The total Spanish loss is believed to have been much heavier. The dynamite cruiser Vesuvius has tu'nn t.nntnrl in nntn-il woi-r-ipa 'PI, pi shells, each containing 200 pounds of guncotton, made awful havoc at San- tlago. Four transports carrying the second expedition of troops for Manila has left San Francisco. Fifteen thousand United States troops have been order- ed to start for Porto Rico. Spaniards are alarmed for fear the American fleet will attack Cadiz. The war loan of $200,000,000 has al ready been twice subscribed. The German government has no in tention of Interfering with the Unit ed States in the Philippines. The demand for canned tomatoes by the army lias sent the mice Howard. J. R.

The Philadelphia Record has d covered that the government is buy ing up the entire peanut crop. They're going to use the kernels In the army and the shells in the navy. Mr. Samuel II.

The little town of Itta Bena was al most entirely destroyed by fire Tues day morning, only two stores were left. Loss estimated at $30,000. In surancc $10,000. Hon. Thcs. C. Catchings and Chas. Wright, editor of the Vicksburg Daily Dispatch, had a spat on the street the other day. The Dispatch is opposed to Patchings' re-clectlon to Congress, and has been very severe In Its criti cisms of Catchings' political record. Let us have peace, brethren. Hon. Thus. Spight, of Ripley, Is an- nouncedas a candidate for Congress n the Second district, vice W. V. Sul- livan, appointed United States Sena- tor. Mr. Spight Is a Democrat of the old school, a profound lawyer, and a gentleman worthy and eminently qualified for the place he seeks. Wc hope he will secure the place. I here are some people who do not understand our position on the sick ness of last year here. When we state that we had the "prevailing fever" wc do not mean that it was the yellow fever. Far from it just the reverse. The "prevailing fever" was dengue, billious, malarial, remltten, etc. That iS Wll.'lt WC had hern lllcr, ullmmnr ....,. no ian,tnererore,it Is not at all neces- saryto quarantine against our town. The Democratic Executive District Committee has fixed the county con ventions of this Congressional Dis trict to be held on the 30th of July, inn tne nominating convention to be held at Center ville, on August 3rd. The able incumbent, Hon. W. F. Love, will bo nominated by acclamation, as lie has no opposition. That is us it should bo. Ho deserves tho position another term. The Kansas City Times tells that "Judgo Meyers, of Leavenworth, ad journed court last week for forty min utes to givo a Juror an opportunity to welcome a baby girl into his family. The man was baek in thlrtv-flve mln- utes, and tho wheels of Justico began to grind again." This is tho latest scream of the A.W.I. . ....

That was a rent which camo high. One case of so-called yellow fever Is reported at Eueutta, Wayne county, this State, but tho detestable State Board of Health has not quarantined the county. Jackson county is per feetly healthy, not even a suspicious case of sickness, still the county Is quarantined. Big Mogul Huntcr'slts In li s easy chilr at Jackson and issues his bulletins and orders every day. Languago fails us to express our con tempt for tho whole shooting match. Governor McLaurin's Political davs ' are numbered. The Droadod Quarantine. Moss I'olnt. Miss., June IS, law. Editor Democrat-Star. Is It not enough that we arc benumb ed by the horrors of war, and that the country Is famished from the long drouth, but another and greater hor or must bo added to a burden, hard enough to bear, that of the dreaded quarantine? And for what reason? No hcalther spot on the face of the earth can be found to-day than here on the gulf coast. After the thorough fumigating we I nrf Virt.tlllllv ImnilinA frnm vnllnur feveri aml to be shut ,n( ljke raU , n box, deadening the little chance there is for business, is an outrage, and every voice should be raised in protest i against it. We are American citizens under a flag emblematical of freedom yet for no real cause we cannot leave our own door yards as it were, because one hundred miles from here some one falls HI. If we are to bow sul mission as slaves to a few addle-headed cranks, I would move, we pack and leave for a place where we can breath the pure air without being told when wc shall or shan't. Let every wide awake citizen unite to have this blot on the fair name of our neighborhood removed at once and until grim neces Slty compels Its return. - Observer. The Heroes of the Merrimac. The bravery of our American soldi ers, from those highest in authority to those occupying the most lowly positions.is unquestionable. Rutsome of the recent exploits of our volunteers will emblazon the pages of history romance and poetry. The name of Lieut. Richmond P. Ilobson and his irave companions are, inseparably inked with that of the Merrimac, and their gallant dash, seemingly into the very Jaws of death, at Santiago, has won the admiraMou of the world i ri . i. . . . . i icmre Hie scene, eiglit nooiC young men, with the hopes and ambitions of life bright before them, voluntarily devote themselves to death. What. hope had they of escape? The Merri time was in readiness, tins minimum of men bade farewell to their coinpan ions, took charge of the boat and dashed into the narrow channel, past crackling guns, bursting shells, amidst Spanish mines, determined to aecom pllsh their mission, the sinking of the Merrimac, un immolation udoii Lib erty's altar, the only means of secur- ng the certain destruction of Cervera and his fleet. The watching friends must have stood appalled. It was a weighty moment. The gallant ship dashed on to her fate, a fearful, roar- ng sound, a luminous flash of flaming light, a downward plunge, a gurlgling death like struggle, followed by a pain ful silence. Where are our heroes? Have they gone to join their comrades of the ill-fated Maine? Thank fiorl no such fate Is theirs. They still live, all honor to them for their noble deed. They live, prisoners it is true, and In the power of an e.nemy skilled in deeds of cruelty. They now know something of the discomforts, let us hope nothing of the lion ors of Spanish prison life. Brave men may they soon return to us, assured of our apprecia tion of their deed of valor.

The ataie iioaru ot Health lias gone out of its way to do Jackson county a contemptible and cowardly trick, and deserves the unqualified condemna tion of all right-thinking people.

Ourciti.ens having become restless and Justly in dignantatthisdastardly act, It would not be surprising should they adopt extreme measures to break the exist ing quarantine, which Is to the Incon venience ot tho traveling public and the stoppage of all business in this soction. The Starkvillo Times In referring to the McL.iurin-Vardaman affair, winds up thusly : " We believe that when tho Gover nor reflects fiver Ilk nnl Inn In Ihli c;ls0 he will once more go to the foot or the cross " and again " bedew bis piuow witii tears" in order to gain that divine grace which causes ma to " forgive those who trespass against us," aud to return good for evil."

I Ford, of Scranton, and Hon. Jas. II Neville, of Biloxi. The chair appoint ed a committee of three, viz : J. I Ford, F. II.

That the ac tion of the Mississippi Stat'! Board of iieaiiu in undertaking to institute a useless and unnecessary quarantine against the coast counties, and there by allowed the cities of Mobile and New O.leans into quarantining said counties was arbitrary, illegal and op pressive, and we demand a recision of the said proclamation of t he secretary of the State Board of Health; be it tu rther Resolved, That representative mass meetings or the counties or Hancock, Harrison and Jackson lie called to meet at Biloxi on Thursday, the lGtli of June, 18U8. at 11 o'clock a. ni., for the purpose of adopting some measure of relier against the action of the State Board of Health.

The minutes ot the meeting were read and approved. All the papers of the district are requested to copy the proceedings of the meeting. On motion the committee adjourned. A Michigan regiment at Camp Mc Pearson, near Atlanta, was gultly of the execrable taste of singing, within hoarlng of a Georgia regiment, the old war song Marching Through Geor gia and the favorite one about hanging JcB Davis on a sour apple tree. The result was a fight, and even a Boston paper expresses much satisfaction In the fact tho Micblgandors got a good drubbing. Judge 11.

Escntuwpn, Miss., Juno 10, iM. Editor Demoerut-Htnr. Yesterday, while you Scranton folks were burning up, with the thermome ter at 110 in the shade, we were enjoy ing a most delightful breeze at Lyon's Lake. The occasion being a Metho- j "'"t Sunday School picnic, given by the good people of. that neighborhood, who sent invitations to friends far and near to come up and have u good time. So wc of us favored Escataw plans who could get off, went without further ceremony, and most assuredly found the good time promised. Just Imagine, a day sitting under oaks, with friends around us, the young peo ple looking so happy, the little ones having the best of times, from our picnic grounds mn the beautiful bluff, the lake below and the mostdelightf ul breeze, and last, but not least, the most excellent people who welcomed us strangers. Mrs. Davis, Mrs. Gould, Mrs. Williams and other ladies, each and all, made us feel at home. The young Messrs. Davis were the life of the crowd. By and by flinner time came; and, my gracious: l iiiiiik lucre wasn't just such another dinner in Jackson county. The ladles spread the table clothes under the oaks, and then loaded them down with every thing good to eat chicken, chicken pie, mutton, pies, cakes, pickles, pre serves, salads, canned fruits, and so on and S3 forth. A general and cordial nvitation to dinner wassungout, the blessing was asked by Rev. G. W. Hull, and everybody ate as much as they pleased and remember, the parson dn't go back on the chicken pie. And then wc had an after-dinner cup of coffee we old folks made by Mr. John Williams, over a chip lire, that was greatly enjoyed. The good peoplo up there arc im proving tho place in every way. They have a nice new school house, and will finish it up comfortably for winter. They Intend to give an entertainment very soon at the new school house for the be no tit of the building fund. In conclusion, will say wo will re member the picnic on the ninth ol June, and will surely go again next time. A Visitor. YELLOW FEVER AT MclIENRY. The Meridian Herald has been shown a letter from a reliable saw mill man at McIIenry, Miss., written on the 11th Inst, in which he says: 'There is more scare here than fe ver. Most of the slek people have not been sick. The case that was repor ted by tho doctors as the first case of fever was out in 3G hours after being taken sick; stated he felt all right and went to work. Another case wai a young man who walked 200 yards to toe depot, telegraphed his folks that he had yellow fever, but was doing well, and went back home and began splitting wood." AN OLD DOCUMENT The folowing old manuscript was found recently In the office of the see- etaryof State. It Is dated July 23rd. 1812, and entitled "A petition for the emoval of John Smiley, J. P.," and goes to show that even at that early time the Justice of the peace was a thorn in his side It reads; "To His Excellency, David Holmes, Governor of Mississippi Territory We, the in habitants of said territory of Amite, look on ourselves as aggrieved by the conduct of Mr.John Smiley, one of the ustiees of the peace In said county ins conduct is, in the opinion of your humble petitioners, not consist ent with duty of an olllcer to whem I entrusted so great power as wc, yourl humble petitioners, think to be inves ted In the breast of a magistrate.
