THIS PAPER IS ALL HOME PRINT. Scranton, Mississippi: FRIDAY MARCH 10. I$S9. TO CANDIDATES. COME TO THE FRONT. i As 'will lie observed on t tie local page of the Dkmocrat-Star to-day, we are now ready to announce ail can didates. State county and beat who wish the votes of Jackson county at the coming 'November election. The Democrat Stab visits weekly every nook and corner of the county, and Is re;id by all classes of people, there fore, it is the best medium to reach t lie voters. For terms read our can didates column on local page and gov ern yourselves accordingly. Scranton Is the coming town of the Gulf Coast. Prof.- A. A. Kineannon says he is not a candidate for Governor. The fifty-fifth Congress adjourned Saturday without (lay eight minutes after 12 o'clock. The Legislature of Tennessee has pissed a bill m:iking it a felony to play "craps'' fur money. The Senate naval committee has de cided to recommend t lie construction of six more new war vessels. The Cleveland Enterprise is a new paper just started at Cleveland, Hull var county. It is a McLaurin organ. Gov. Anse is himself again, and we are glad of it. He has recovered from his severe Illness. He will be heard from all over the State. Mr. A. Parker, of Wesson .Minor, lert "by the light of the moou" last week for tils old home in Illinois. He left some creditors to mourn his sud den departure. The State primary has about ex ploded in this State. Let the Dear ocraey meet in convention at the Cap ital and make nominations of a State t icket as usual. The Dkmocrat-Stak is still oppos ed to an elective judiciary. With n siiuare, honest Governor and Senate better judges can be selected than by an election by the people. The establishment or a steamship line from the Port of Paseagoula to Havana would doubtless prove a pay ing investment. We offer free docks on the Fascagoula river. Col. John L. I'owjr, candidate for re-election to the oftlee of Secretary of .State,' will have a walk over. No one has the courage to oppose him. That is t ight. He is the man for the place. Congress has adjourned and now we hope Hon. John M. Allen, candidate for the United States Senate, will pay the seacoast a visit. Our people are anxious to see him and hear him talk. Mr. W. N. Hurt, editor of the Wi nona Times, is out fur Floater Repre sentative from Montgomery and Gre nada counties. He is a good editor and we think will make a splendid legislator'. Gov. McLaurin lias appointed Mr. W. S. Vardaman, Mayor of Green wood. He is a brother of Maj. James K. Vardaman, and no doubt will make an excellent executive, as he is a man of considerable ability. Gov. McLaurin has appointed Hon. Oliver Clifton, of Jackson, special ex aminer to look over the books of tho Auditor of Public Accounts and the State Treasurer. That Is a splendid appointment. Tho work of examina tion will begin at once. Hon: Charles A. Lancaster has been appointed Superintendent of Educa tion for Harrison county, vice J. 8. Allison, resigned.- Mr. Lancaster Is h cultured gentleman and has held the office before. In our judgment, the appointment Is a good one. Surgeon-General Wyman has order ed Dr. E. Souehon, president of the Louisiana Hoard of Health to have all bacgageand effects belonging to sol diers returning from Havana and Ctenfuegos and other Cuban points disinfected, beginning March 15th. HI to Le hoped the above order will be strictly carried out. Mr. 3. Lem Scawrlght, the able edl- trir i.f tl.n n rit . . v4.. i me vnucutw j. lainueaier, n a candidate ,for State Senator from Choctaw and Oktibbeha eountles. He U eminently qualified for the position arid we trust ho will get there. At lust, the editors of the State are com ing to the front, asking something at ihehanls of the people, which they richly deserve. The announcement 6f the begin nmg or a ormiarn era for Scranton. Pascagoula and Moss Point was her aided last Friday in the blowing of whistles and the firing of cannon, in celebration of the news that Congress nail granted the appropriation of TIIliEE ni'NDRED AND SBVKNTEEN THOUSAND SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS for the Improvement of Horn Island Harbor and East Pascagoula River. This Intelligence was first received by our representative citizens, Messrs. Frank II. Lewis and W. M. Denny and Mr. J. W. Stewart, of Moss Point, who have been untiring in their ef forts to have reinstated this amount, as originally proposed, in lieu of the small allowance of fifty thousand dollars reported as having been determined upon. It will readily be perceived by our readers how agreeable this is to the Democrat-Star, whose advocacy of deep water, as an award to the com mercial worth of our region, has been an unremitting hobby. To those who have heen instrumental in achieving tills signal benefit for us our slncerest thanks are due and gratefully ten dered. The first determined effort to secure a substantial appropriation was In augurated and pursued by the lion W. M. Denny during his term in Con gress. He secured the passage of all the preliminary bills necessary to ob taining the engineer's survey, and virtually laid the foundation of .the present appropriation. HON. W.H. MAYBIN FOR FLOATER. Harrison County, Mirth 8, lias. Editor Democrat-Star. As by general consent Harrison county is entitled to the Floate Rep resentative this year, and in casting about for a. suitable candidate for that place we know of no one who is better qualified or better fitted "in the county of Harrison than that peerless, brainy lawyer, Hon. W. H. Mayhln, of Riloxi. He has had experience as a legislator and his record Is superb, and we believe he can carry this coun ty by a handsome, majority. We offer him to the Jackson county Democ racy. ' Many Democrats. loniuui.t W. M. DENNY. In this work he was succeeded by the late W. F. Love, who readily took up the endeavor so faith fully begun by his predecessor and farther ad vanced Its progress until, to the great regret of all Mlsslssippians, his term was cut short by his untimely death. He had proved to tie a valuable friend of the Sea Coast and nn earnest ad vocate of Congressional aid towards deep water for our Gulf ports. The Hon. Frank A. McLaln suc ceeded the lamented Mr. Love and lias proved a most worthy representa tive In behalf of all previous cflorts to secure for the Mississippi Sound Coast the deep water advantages nec essary to compete commercially for import and export traffic. T1IOS. C. CATCHINGS and Senator W. V. Sullivan rendered the committee much valuable service during both visits to the Capital. The future Is made far more bright for us by this lift of encouragement, which tends to lead us all Into the path of progress and prosperity. We will, In tho course of time, possess such an Indentation upon the northern coast of tho Gulf of Mexico as will make the port of Pascagoula second to none other on tho Southern sea border of our country. The total appropriation secured Is $317,600, $.10,000 for the deepening and Improvement of Horn Island Harbor and $207,000 for the dredging of tho Pascagoula River. This amount will give a depth of fifteen feet from a point in the bay up the Pascagoula, River, thenco up Escatawpa River to the saw mill of the Moss Point Lum ber Co. WASTE OF PUBLIC MONEY. Improvidence of the Outgo ing Congress.. Reckless Congressman Joe Bailey, of Texas, refuses to be the leader of the Demo cratic party In the House, because the members of his parly will not follow him. It Is obvious that his party friends did not think lie was a safe leader, therefore, they refused to be led by him. Joe will now take a back seat, and it is a good thing for the Democratic party. Last Saturday a Democrat-Star representative paid a visit to the "ho tel de Montross," 13iloxi, and found a decidedly up-to-date appearance to the famous old hostelry. The present proprietors, Messrs. Sanford & Affeld, are experienced hotel keepers, having conducted several first-class establish ments In Chicago. They are both af fable and progressive gentlemen, and will doubtless make a success of their new undertaking. John D.Rockfeller is to day the rich est man In the United States more, indeed, the richest man in the world. He Is valued at $2")0,000,000, but his wealth exceeds those figures consider ably. His Income is upwards of $40,- 000 a day, or over $14,000,000 in a year. And still he is grasping for more. A poor, lean, hungry country editor is far happier than Rockfeller, and Would not exchange places with him.' Hon. M. A. Dees, (the remarkable Dees,) known to almost every man, woman and child In the county pre sents his name through the Dkmocrat-Star this week. asking for tho votes of the county for the office of Representative in the lower branch of the next Legislature. During the canvass he will dcQne his position on all the leadings questiom of the day, religious as well as political. A Washington telegram states that the President has appointed as the board of commissioners of the Vicks- burg National Military park: Gener al S. D. Lee, of Mississippi, chairman; Captain W. T. Righby, of Iowa, and L. G. Dwerest; General L. S. Kountz, secretary and historian; Charles F, Longley, assistant. The first meet- ng of the commission will be InVicks- burgon March 15. J" TZ - F. A.

The editor of the Choctaw Plain dealer lugged out his joke machine mid turned out the following squill, but at the xninn time It la niirvir fn of truth: "Death, taxes, horse-swim-ptng. matrimony rind running for office will exist., it is natural to m. Mime, until this mundane subere is The Pascagoula Commercial Club and Merchants' Association of Moss Point, alert to tho importance of the Issue that was pending, conjointly appointed a committee composed of ninic Lewis, chairman; J. J, Mcintosh, secretary; L. D. Ilerrlck, treasurer; W. M. Denny and J. W. Stewart, for the purpose of securing government aid for the improvement our harbor and river, to this com mittee was added J. L. Dantzlcr nnd G.M.Luce. They visited Washing, ton during the winters of 1B7-'0S and succeeded In enllstlnu mn friends towards the advocacy of their claim. Congressman Thos! C. Catli ngs, the great friend of rivers and H u r iki ra unna Ul. . .... uis Bupport, wnien was mraiuable. ' It is stated that the adjutant of an Ohio volunteer regiment in the recent war, having occasion to handle a large quanity of canned beef rations, found that when tho cans were soaked in water the 1893 label would peel off, disclosing an original wrapper mark ed 1888 or some other remote dato. And of such are the pets and favor ites of the administration. "Mr. Hez Wheat of Picayune. has capped tho climax on the pork ques tion," says tho Poplarville Enter prise. "Last week he sent to the En terprise office the foot of a hog that when dressed, weighed over 500 pounds. Mr. Wheat was in Poplar ville not long since and informed us that he had killed four porkers that averaged 400 pounds net. At the usu al price these Ave hogs would have sold for $105, or as much as Ave bales of 5 cent cotton." Forest Register, 1: Any one bring ing us a load of wood, a bushel of corn, ten poifnds of meat, a bushel of pota toes, three chickens or forty bundles of fodder can have their namo placed on tho Register subscription books for six months or longer. What wo want is wood and grub, and want it right now. Mr. J. D. Minor is announced In the Democrat-Star to day for sheriff of Jackson county. He has held the of fice a term and ulada an excellent, honest officer. It is useless for us to say any more on this subject. The voters of this -county know Duncan Minor. .

(Jlialrman Cannon's statement in full follows: 'The appropriations made nt the session of CongrvssjuM closed amount approximately 'to 3073,668,400, and show an apparent reduction of $219, 573,000 under the appropriations made at the preceedlng session. "This -is attributable to the large expenses occasioned- hy the war with Spain that, wero provided fur during the preceding session. .. . ' "The entire appropriations made by ine urty-nrtii Congress aggregate $1, 560.890,010.28. Of this sum $482,502.- OM.47 lsnireor.cuargeabio to our late war with Sjjain, or incident there to.

The appropriations tuado by tho proceeding Congress, the Fifty-fourth amounted to $1,044,580,273 87. A com parison shows an increase in ordinary appropriations made by this Congress over those made by that Congress, the Fifty-fourth, of $39,747,000, but this apparent Increase Is more than accounted for by increase under eight items alone, namely: For pensions iH.uuu.uou, rorine postal service $10, 000,000, for rivers and harbors, includ ing work under contracts previously authorized, $3,600,000; for new ships for thu navy $1,1)00,000, for beginning the work of the twelfth census $1,000, 000, for tho Paris Exposition $1,200. 000. for new public buildings, includ ing the building for the Department of Justice and for site nnd partial construction of . the new government printing ollice, about $,000,000. and for payments or judgments rendered against the government on account of French spolitations and Under the Bowman act $3,100,000. These very natural nnd necessary increases in public expenditures, on account of?the pension list, the growtli of the postal service in response to the. demands of commerce, tho improvement of the great waterways of the country and for Increase of the navy, the construc tion of needed, buildings to accommo date tho. government service in the cities of the country, the taking of the census, 'the participation of the1 nation In the great Exposition to be held at Paris next year, and the pay ment of the French spoliation Judg ments and linwman act cases, so long considered by ami pressed upon Con gress, aggregating 839,900, Olio more than the apparent increase in the or dinary appropriations by this Congress over those made by tho iftv-foui th Congress. In addition to tho direct appropriations made at this session, contracts were autnorizco, sunjeet to future appropriations to be made by Congress, amounting to about $70,000- 000. Of this amount $44,000,000. is for additional ships for the navy, $22,500,- 000 is fur the work ou rivers and har bors, and something over $3,000,000 is for public buildings. The contract is of necessity applied to the construc tion of new warships, which require Periods of years for their construction, n tliecaso of rivers and harbors Im provements and the construction of public buildings, experience has shown that expiration of contracts tends to materially cheapen the same."

Bruce, who began life as a bar ber, never put on airs after he became the leading negro statesman in this country, but alwavs met his white colleagues on the terms which tbey extended: to- him. If a Northern Senator was 1 familiar Bruce knew how to act toward him, and he also knew how to draw tho indefinable boundary line that has alwiys separa ted tho negro from the Southern white gentlemen. This was noticeable at all times in the Senate, when L. Q. C. Lamar was Bruce's colleague from Mis sissinpl. Lamar was then fcoble and drooping, and the tenderness with which the big, copper-colored negro cared for blm was the cause of eulo gistic comment. Whenever Lamar went to the 'cloakroom Bruco ; follow ed him thore to hold his coat and bun dle him up -wncmly. Then ho would take the aged Senator gently by the arm and support him in the walk homo.
