To the Voters of tiie Sixth Congresslousl District. Believing thnt an Investigation of my record In Congress will show tliat I harp discharged my duty Wthfnlly, actively and efficiently; (hat I have kopt all promises and broken no party pledges, I, therefore, am enconruged to again solicit the sup port of my constituency for re-election, and here by announce my candidacy, subject to the action of the Democratic purty of the Sixth District of Mississippi. Very respectfully, W. F. LOVE. March IS, im. The Americans are giving the Spaniards the S. S. S. The coast towns some what observed the glorious HutJrH of July. The war splrll Is not as strong In Mississippi us it ought to beat this time. In the engine room of the monitors the thermometer registers from 140 to 100. Germany had better keep her oar out of American affairs. She may get Into trouble. General Wheeler is now prepared to state how the situation looks to a man up a tree. The Hawaiian sugar stock Is boom ing. The annexation patriots are to have their reward. More and more troops are needed at the front. There are only 225,000 troops in the service now. Byron said that military fame was to be killed in battle and have your name misspelled in the gazette. Patriots at the front are licking Spaniards; those at homo are licking stamps, says the Nashville American. Why don't our government accept cnlored troops? In many sections of the South thousands could be enlisted. It is reliably asserted that the old maids of Boston look under the bed every night before retiring for a Span ish fleet. The Rough Riders had a rough time at, Santiago, but they. are a brave set of fellows, and have done good service to their country. Mr. Henry Lehman, of New Or leans, has been uwarded a contract by the government for 300,000 pair of socks for the soldiers. As there is no yellow, dengue or prevailing fever on the coast our State Board of Health Is spending the $."0, 000 In salaries. The profession is bound to live. It is said that the Spanish soldiers are brutal to our troops when they eapture them. Tbey stick bayonets through the prisoners throats and let them die slowly. On the battle field at Santiago de Cuba on the 1st Inst., the American soldiers sang as they died the "Star Spangled Banner." The wounded join ed in the chorus. All honor to such bravery. Gun cotton, which Is being so ex tensively used as a substitute for gun powder by the government in the present war, (s a highly explosive sub stance obtained by soaking cotton, or any other vegetable fiber, in nitric and sulphuric acids, and then dried well. . "Old Glory" is one of tho oldest flags In the worlds It -was adopted la 1777. Tbe English was adopted in 1801, tbe Spanish In 1885, tbe French trl-color in 18W, the Portuguese nag in 1835, tbe Italian red, white and green in 1848, and the German flag in 1870. Hon. A. A.-Klncannon has been choscu by tho Trustees as President of the Industrial Institute and Col lege. It he should accept the State will lose a fine Superintendent of Ed ucation and the college will gain a most splendid gentleman and thor ough educator as President. The Board of Trustees of the Uni versity elected miss Anna Ilardgraves as librarian 6f that Instilue. It will he remembered that Miss Ilardgraves was a prominent candidate for Slate librarian at the last election. Site is a charming woman and will no doubt make an efficient officer. ' Khln Inland la now In direct tele phone communication with the shore, hn . Uaal Aiiuornmanf ha vlnir ua ' completed cable line from that point .to tiuo&V It is understood a tele phone will be placed at the fort, one at the lighthouse and one at the uuar antine station.

Spain's Boasted Squadron is No More, Cristobal Colon, Almirante Oquendo, Infanta Maria Teresa, Viscaya, Are Monuments of Our Victory. Over the wires has flashed the com prehension of the continental world, that once more, America, the free, has scored a most glorious victory. To the world has Just gone forth the news that Cervera's fleet is no more. To what are we to look forward ; what in the future, the near future, have wc to conquer ; Spain, to-day, has but an inftnitcsimally small number of war vessels yet to be sunk they, ac cording to reports will bo attended to by tho squadron under command of Admiral Dewey. Should the enemy's fleet be so foolhardy as to-attempt to reach Manila to come near home we proclaim to the world at large the de struction of the much vexed and un certain fleet of Admiral Cervcra. . The ships destroyed by the Ameri can squadron were as follows : Cristobal Colon, Almirante Oquendo, Infanta Maria Teresa, Viscaya, and two torpedo boat destroyers, Furor and Plnton. Within the history of the world's naval engagements no such victories as those of Manila and Santiago (with in the last fifty years) have been known as the two late American vic tories. ' . After the wrecking of the Spanish squadron, Admiral Cervei a, bis officers and men, numbering fifteen hundred, surrendered to the commander of the Gloucester. With the push of the American nation, Shafter, command er of the invading forces, is now at the fortified city of Santiago. Our next despatches may proclaim to the world the surrender of the doomed city of Santiago. Flags of truce Hew in both camps at Santiago. When the Spanish com mander declined to surrender ho said that his troops would resume fighting as soon as General Shafter took down tils signs or armistice. Spanish prisoners on the Harvard mutinied, and several of them were shot. Fearing bombardment by the fleet, ine hpaniarns nave tried to block up the harbor of Santiago by running the Keina Mercedes ashore. Admiral Camam's fleet has reached Suez. Despatches In tercepted by American consul order him to go on to Manila, but it Is reported in Gibral tar that he has orders to return to Spain. No confirmation has reached Wash ington of tho report that Spain wants to end the war, hut If she would sug gest reasonable terms they would be accepted. Six batteries of light artillery, un der Brigadier General Randall, are ex pected to reach Santiago to-day. Santiago refugees who have reached Kingston expect to reach Santiago to day. The Senate passed the Newlsinds resolution for the annexation of the Hawaiian islands. Our losses at Santiago were only 150 k liled and 1000 wounded. Private John Allen, tho sage of Tupelo, and the funny man in Con gress from this State, has announced himself as a candidate for re-election, and we venture to say that tho people of the First district will elect him. Gov. McLaurln has appointed Mr. E. II. Nail State Land Commissioner, vice John M. Simonton, deceased. This is a very good appointment. Mr. Nalr has been chief clerk In the Sec retary of State's office for a number of years, and was a candidate fur the secretaryship. It is now the opinion of the law officers of the State that chancery clerks will have to place a ten-cent U s. stamp on ineir certincates certify' Ing to the Auditor that the report of the tax collector is correct. Two of these reports areequlred monthly. The 27th Annual Camp Meeting will be held as usual July 13th and con tinue eight days, at the Sea Shore Camp Grounds near Biloxl. The L. & N. Railroad will place tickets on sale at the reduced rates of faro from all points on their lines July 5 to 23, good to return until Aug. 31. AH trains will stop at the grounds July 5 to 24 Inclusive. The grounds are open from April 1 to Nov. 1; free from disease, fine sea bathing and pure, sparkling drinking water and modern accommodations. Capt. Bob Stowors, tho handsome and able editor of the Oxford Globe, has concluded to go to war. He is organizing a compauy for one of the Mississippi battalions called for by our Governor. Bob is of true bood, and bis men will be certain to be in the front rank If they follow him. We hope he muy return unhurt. ' Miss Sally McGehee Isom, of Ox ford, who occupies the chair of elocu tion at the State University, has been invited by the Fortnightly Club of JNew York to accompany them and assist in the Inauguration of' the American Shakespearean Symposium, to be held at Stratford-on-Avon, July 27, 28 and 29. This conspicuous honor ia conferred upon Miss Isom alone, as the sole representative of the South. and she will be accompanied -by Miu Mnne west, a pupil of Miss Isom's. who has completed a course of elocu tion in the State University. They win sun wr new ioru on July Ha. Confederate Veteran Reunion. By request of Gen. John B. Gordon, commanding United Confederate Vet erans, through Adjutant General and Chief of Staff George B. Moorman, we announce that the eighth annual meeting and reunion of the United Confederate Veterans will be held in the city of Atlanta, Ga., on July 20-23, 1808, tho dates of July 20. 21 and 22 being anniversaries of thehattles of Peach Tree Oeck, Manassas and At lanta, respectively. All Confederate organizations and Con federate soldiers and sailors of all arms and grades are cordially Invited to attend this eighth general reunion of their comrades. Preparations have been made to en tertain all who may attend. The roads in, Cuba are reported to be in a terrible condition. Tbe Span lards, it seems, neglected to pave be tween the tracks. o - Germany is all right us a spectator; there will be time enough to take ac tion when she begins to interfere with the game. Twenty-five thousand patriots have applied for 500 commissions as staff officers, and there arc yet thousands of precincts to hear from. . The SprlngUeld rifle, with which our soldiers are chiefly armed, is only effective uC 1200 yards, whereas the Mauser, with which tbe Spanish sold iers arc armed, is effective at 2000 yard. This is a tremendous disparity and every effort should be made to supply the former with long-range magazine rifles. Fortunately, the ma rines at Guantanamo were so armed. Early in the civil war the martinets were given to disparaging the volun tecr soldiery in comparison with the regulars, but they were taught better long before Appomattox. The world never saw better soldiers than these volunteers, and especially those of them who followed the plumes of Jackson and of Lee. Soldiers of the British army are re joicing over an order recently Issued by Lord Wolseley to abolish the use of heavy headgear on field days and In hot weather. The full headdress will hereafter be wor n only during reviews and when the men are on guard. Tho Times-Herald, of Chicago, Is responsible for the following : "Den ver was Invaded last week by an army of delegates to a national convention of women's clubs, and the Post of that city says that when they began to as semble in the convention hall, 'all was bustle and confusion.' Did the delegates have good newspaper back- mg? K.. There was about two hundred per sons at Fontaiucbleau detention camp this week from McIIcnry, Bay St. Louis and other points along the coast. The camp Is being enlarged for what purpose wo do not know. There is no sickness on the coast now and no prospect of any this season. Co). J. L. Power our good Secretary of State has appointed li is sun, Mr. Joseph V. Power as assistant Secre tary of State to fill vacancy caused by the resignation of Mr. EfTt. Hall, ap pointed State Land Commissioner. Joe Power Is a chip olT the old block and we know he is the right man in the right place. Four members of the Mississippi Legislature have g'inc to fight the Spaniards. These art! Senator Noel, of Holmes, and Representatives Mont gomery, of Hinds; Glover, of Coaho ma, and Sheppard, of Wayne. All of them are commissioned officers. Mr. Montgomery is colonel of the Second Regiment, and Messrs. Noel and Glov er are captains in that regiment, while Dr. Sheppard is hospital stow ard of the First Begiment. What a change has come over our people. Last summer and fall It was not prudent to oppose shot gun quar antine In this section. Prominent men of tills place and vicinity were threatened with hanging for opposing the quarantine restrictions. But now, what a radical change ! Everybody, men, women, negroes and children are violently opposed to tho quarantine and those connected vsitb it. Once in a while wc hear threats of tearing up the railroad track, shooting the in spectors and a general shaking up of the quarantine " layout." Brethren, let us grin and bear It. Don't violate the law of tho land. "Cuss'! the quarantine fellows to your heart's content. A Hopklnsvilie, Ky., special of Wed nesday to the New York Sun savs Mrs. Rat?

Kins, Clerk. Letter From Escatawpa. Eacstswps, Miss., July S, IM. Itdltor Democrat -Stiir. June 30, VXttS, will ever be a memor able day In the hearts of Escataw plans. This being the anniversary of that great ofrier Knights of Honor, Escatawpa Lodge No. 3115, celebrated it most gloriously and becomingly. Invitations being Issued to friend, of the lodge to join them in celebiatlng, earnest preparations were made to make it a success. The program was an excursion by water up the far-famed and historical Escatawpa river to M urray's Bl uff, where d i n ner was to be had, and speeches made. The steam er "Pic," with a fine, large barge in tow started from L. N. Dantzler's mill, with national colors flying, and the banner , Escatawpa Lodge thrown to the breeze, and with the Escatawpa Brass Band discoursing sweet music. They made a landing for friends at Muss Point, at Lumber Company's Wharf, and Lecore's Land ing. The day was an Ideal one, a typical Southern day in June. The sun's rays were tempered by a mag nificent awning, erected tent-shaped over the entire 'targe, high on sides all around, so us to admit freely the most delightful breeze from the river and from the gulf,., The steady moving of Ihotboat, its-easy gliding over the gentto i ippleof the waters of the Esca tawpa, the beautiful Scenery of the banks, broken here and there by smal ler streams flowing into the river, the delightful music by tire band, made everyone glad to be there. To the reception committee, Messrs. Louis Olllverl Earnest Fountain, An drew Hanson, Gordon Broome, Harry Lynd and GueCuoningham, the guests return thanks for courteous attention and for the most examplary bchavoir during the entire day; and not least mention must be made of the refresh ing Ice lemonade, passed around with out stint. On landing at Murray's bluff, dinner was served. With ad ditional friends meeting there, over four hundred had dinner on grounds, and all pronounced it a model one. After dinner the older people enjoyed a nice cup of coffee. Apropos we will say this wuti lias a splendid well, which furnishes extremely cold and good water in abundance, which added much to the pleasure of tho visit. The officers of Escatawpa Lodge Knights of Honor, No. 3115, arc: T. H. Riggle, dictator; J. J. Pendarvis, reporter; W. 11. Smith, chaplain; E. A. Suthoff, treasurer; Travis, vice- dictator; Gordon Brot.me, assistant dictator; L. Lv Rogers, past dictator; Gus Cunningham, sentinel; Wilburn Go ft, guardian. After the dinner hour and a short recess, attention was directed to the speaker's stand. ' Speeches were nec essarily cut short ,4ju account of the lateness of, the uout'. Mr. Wm. H. Smith, ono of the older members, said (which 1,'ivc In condensed form): Friends and,. Brethren On 30th of June, 1873, the order of Knights of Honor was started in Louisville, Ky.. by Bros. Deiuares and Wilson. It Is a benevolent, as well as a fraternal society. There have been some chang es and improvements mado In the working of the order ail and each of them being of greatest benefit and to-day the Knightsof Honor stands as a model. A man now, however worth less he may be in a general way, may by a provident miinagemeiit of a little money, secure to bis wife an Indenen- dencc after his death, at least a good living until sue could get a better hus band. In the State of Misslsslnnl there are about 5.000 members, having about 725 lodges. Iu our near neigh borhood we have: Escatawoa Lodge. 51 mcmbets; Qulf Lodge, 50 members: u;iy ou. Willis, memoes; unoxi, fi members; Sea Shore. 27 members. The number of deaths in Mississippi prior to 1897 was 1322, and up to that time there was Da id two millions of dollars. In 18W there were 93 deaths, the death rate was a little over thir teen to the thousand, and they had, on an average, paid into the widow and orphan fund 1333. Gulf Lodge has drawn over $20,000; Escatawpa Lodge a Pout 18,000. Thero has been paid from this order to widows and orphans sixty-three millions of dollars ana over eleven niiiuon lor other benevolent purposes. Mr. Smith wiis succeeded by Rev. n.

"V1fhr1i it the quar- ' antine U kep4t -'itaH ur - Letter From the Fifth Mississippi U. S. Volunteers. The following Interesting letter was received ty Mrs. H. W. Converse, of Moss Point, from her soldier boy, Mr. Henry Converse, now in ramp at Col umbus: Camp Wjti.TiiAL. Columbus, Miss., Juno It, ltM. My Dear Mother : After a most tiresome and very dusty ride we ar rived In camp late Friday evening, and were assigned to quarters. Tins is a very beaut iful pi ice, and the camp ground is es ecially adapted for the purpose which It serves. It is situat ed ou the north side of a bend, which gives us a fine view of the river in both directions. The bathing privi leges are unlimited, and from the shouts of laughter and splashing of water the boys are showing their ap preciation by taking every advantage of said privilege on every occasion. The water at night is mado very beautiful by the pliosphoresent lights from the Immense numbers of mullet gamboling and springing from the water. A general good feeling prevails here throughout tiiecamp. Col. Sargent is a thorough gentleman and a soldier clear through. He has already won us heart aud body to a man. The camp is a perfect city of while tents, so arranged that wje have wide avenues and cross streets, like a beautifully laid out suburban town. We are pro tected from the sun by the generous brandies of tiie numberless large oaks which are grand in form and symeiry. So far two companies have been mustered In and they are already equipped. The equipment consists of one uniform of very light flannel well made, one pair of nice light well made cair shoes, two suits of tine Balbrigan underwear, two pairs of socks, one rubber blanket, ono wool blanket, one brown canvass hat and leggins to match. Five men are assigned to ono tent which is supplied with enough nice, sweet hay to make very comfortable beds. We fare very well, indeed, con trary to the stories afloat in your neighborhood. Break rust one pint or coffee, bread, meat and potatoes. Dinner Soup, meat, potatoes, bread, corn bread, and supper is about the sumo as breakfast. The regiment Is filling up fast, and we ail expect to be tilled soon now. 1 will give you the day's programme to which we are all subjected In the shape of regulations. First Call llcvcille, (I a. m.

A man who could object had better remain at home. 1 consider two, hours drill a day very light work. There Is no sickness in camp at present. We are all well and happy and very Impatient to be sent to the fkont at okce. I am very well and will tell you moro of camp life next time. 1 had the honor of being appointed sergeant of Company A, this morning. As ii is your birthday we will remember it with double pleasure this time. Your loving son, Henhy Converse:. John A. Lee, of St. Louis, recently addressed to the Secretary of War an offer of a regiment of commercial travelers for the war, to which Gen. Alger replied that " the only possible means for you to have mustered Into the service the organization to which you refer would be through a special act of Congress." Representative Lloyd, of Missouri, also received a let ter from Mr. Lee, asking him to intro duce the bill for a regiment of com mercial travelers, and to push it. Mr. Leo writes : " I desire to advise you that I have now ready a regiment of splendidly competent and capable men. Most of them have had military training and have been well drilled and schooled and. they consist largely of commercial travelers und sons of commercial trav elers and of city aajemcn. The men will come from the following States: Missouri, Arkflows, Texas, Louisiana, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsyl vania and Michigan. We want cither a cavalry or infantry organization (catalry preferred), and we are Just as "tmHHine"as any lot of fellows you can -ffer get together. You cannot kill ft commercial traveler. Ho has been In the midst of all great calami tef wrecks and women's rights con ventions. All manner of diseases have assailed him. Cheap hotels have tried jto ruin his digestion. Bartenders and patent medlcino manufacturers have endeavored to" concoct potions that would down him, but he has lived on and on, smiling at his enemies. Give us help if yon can. We cannot under the Stato call as we are nomadic." An outrageous piece of discrimina tion occurred last week In the per mitting of some sixty-nine negro cross tie cutters passing through to Louis iana without being detained at Fon tainebleau detention camp, according to the quarantine regulations. It seems that the presence of the negroes in camp was offensive and objection able to the M. D's. and officers in charge, and application was made to Dr. Souchon, President of the Louisi ana State Board of Health, who read ily granted them permission to go to their destination In Louisiana. Does this act not place the Louisiana board and tbe marine hospital service in an unenviable position? Does It not show fraud? Docs it not prove the unsav ory methods of tbe boards? Is Is not a diabolical and infamous shame? Let the voice of the people thunder out.
