It should bp whispered to her that this is more than Christian nations now do. TLnst Saturd""':,,! , i.irjjmw' th-' .; . lie-sides more hold accommodations Scranton needs a public park nnd new depot building. The first Impression a stranger receives at present ns he alights atnr passes by Scranton on the Louisville and Nashville railroad is repulsive rather than attractive. On t he one hand a shabby nnd filthy apology for a passenger depot, on t he other an unsightly freight barn, and then a long stretch of waste ground adorned with divers mud holes, heaps of rubbish and dilapidated wire fences. Imagine this, desolate waste between the railroad and Krebs ave nue, hcranton s principal business street, and between Frederic street and Del mas avenue, nearly a quarter of a mile in length and several hundred feet wide transformed into a beauti ful Hetty Ghken Paiik. imagine paved walks, gracefully winding around thrifty lawns, along rural benches, understate!)' magnolias and other shade trees, amid rose Dusnes, jiiponieas and all sorts of llowering shuhbery and climbing vines blooming hercKij midwinter, with a tasteful music stand on one end, a stately tribune for public speakers on the other, a spouting fountain in the middle, adorned with artistic vases and alegorical figures formed out of Jackson county terra cottaandalumi mini clays of rare quality. Would not that be a thing of beauty and ii joy forever, immortalizing its gener ous founder, Hetty Green? Imagine further, a neat and clean passenger depot, with a shining new coat of paint on the outside and finished on the in.side with nativa curly pine and ot her rare woods of Jackson county Would not that give every stranger alighting here a far different impres sion tioni what he receives now, and spread the fame of Scranton as one of the most progressive Southern towns far and wide? Hut Hetty Green and her L. & N. railroad oftl :ialsare too stingy to do anything for Scranton in the way above suggested to take the park question In hand. Should there be any snarling dogs in the manger considering their sacred rights of pri vate property superior to the town's right of eminent domain, -ilion they should he choked off without ceremo ny. Scranton should do as Chicago, celebrated for its many beautiful pub lie parks, does when it wants private property for public uses simply con (lemns and expropriates it under the rquiiuom ruics oi law in such cases made and provided. So long as that barren waste re mains a disgraceful eye sore in the very heart or the business part of Scranton, there is not much use in wasting printer's ink in advertising its many advantages. The transfor mation of that shameful waste into :i ncuutimi park would do more than anything else in drawing capital, an enterprising population to Scranton, and the town council ought to kno-v and act accordingly.

The Heveillc, In referring to wnat we sam a few weeks ago, says: The' Reveille is opposed to an elec tive judiciary, because it will nlace a great many judges on the bench who are absolutely incapacitated to pre side over a court, besides, thevare likely to be swayed by political mo tlvcs to favor thoso who wero Instru mental in securing their election.

While everything concerning this important enterprise has been lying dormant, or seemingly so to the public-all eyes were drawn to Gulf port ...limn mi uns i,i me me r.rcsi dent, Dr. Pitts and his associates were by no means asleep or Indifferent to the great Importance of this enter prise which doubtless is of more im portance to us, and we miirhr. snv to our State than any other line of rail- roiui, anil we want to say that we are backed up in making this assertion by t he very best of authority. What are the facts as to importance or Pasea goula and Gulfport for a safe harbor and deep water we. find that after oorii pf.ints have been thoroughly ex amined by competent parties, appoint ed by the United States govrnnint who have made their report to the proper department and upon whose re port Congress Is governed when do nating money to be expended in im proving harbors, etc.. that while Gulf- port geis an appropriation of two hon ored tnoiisand. I'ascagoula and Horn Island three hundred and seventeen thousand dollars making one hun dred and seventeen thousand dollars in favor of Paseagoula, which is evi dence that Congress places more im portance, and lias more confidence in Paseagoula and Horn Island as a sure harbor, and a point as a sea port entry than GuKport. The ract that Con gress in its wisdom has seen lit to make this difference between Gulf port and Paseagoula is at once appa rent to every thinking mind, and it can have but one effect, unon Hip minds of all. that Comm 'SS. :l rt or ii thorough and mature investigation, have decided in favor of Pas-.nimiiin as the best point for deep water and safe harbor, therefore making this the most eligible point upon the sea coat of Mississippi to build up a sea port citv. Listen what a man nf wonith nnri broad mind writes in regard to the en terprise: "Webavj succeeded in get ting every dollar appropriated bv Con gress we asked for to aid in making Paseagoula the m ist eligible point for deep water and harbor. The next im. portatit step is the building of the W. 1'. & G. C. railroad, connecting with thoM.&O. railroad at Wnvnesboro, Miss. 1 ins will be a matter of neces sity ns an outlet into the interior." we now have faith in the futfirc of Waynesboro, with the construction of the W. P. & G. C. railroad, from here to the mouth of Paseagoula river will open up a tremendous timber and ter pentine trade our people here will wake up to renewed "energy. Men of capital will naturally turn their uienuonio tins point ror safe and paving investment. Cotton and oil mills will seek this place, and various Industries will follow; and with this we may expect, another Important line or railway. Sav. from llati inl in rir Miss., by this place going east, nenel trat ing the iron and coal mines of Al- iiiama thus making this a ruiJPtiarf center, and building up a city orcW siderable importance. We expect fo uae more to say in futire about ihe ibove named railroad and our Hue nr. tesian mineral water, tins mHiiim nnri health or this place which, with all other advantages, will make this an important point as a health resort. We clip the above from the Waynes boro Times of March 7th. and will idd here that nootherline or railroad that can be conceived would benefit this part of the Gulf Coast more than the above. It would give us the most direct connection with the Northern Mates via the Mobile & Ohki. the Minneapolis & St. Louis and St. Paul & Manitoba roads. The counties of Wayne, Greene and Jackson, through which this project ed road runs have divers other dor mant resources besides magnificent pine forests.lho possibilities of which we have not yet dreamed of in our philosophy, and which will some day iar exceed our present lumber trade in magnitude, when better transporta tion racillties have been provided. The projected Waynesboro, Paseagou la it Gulf Coast railroad goes through the very heart of the great, vellnw pine region of the Paseagoula river basin. It leaves the Mobile, Ohio road at Waynesboro at an elevation of 420' above tide water. Crosse q t ho Greene county line at Henderson's church 375' above; the Chickasahay river at Roberts ferry 2,j0' above; i n tor sects tho Mobile, Jackson & Kansas City railroad at or near New Denny station, the north line of Jackson county line at the county line church near Denny postolllcc, the central line of the shadow path -of the total eclipse of the sun May 23, 1000, about Ave miles east of Basin; then crosses Ccdarjircek at Amerlcus 130' above tide water, then goes by Wade, Three Rivers and Eseatawpa (on southern limits of eclipse) to Moss Point and thence to Scranton andPascagoula,par alellingtheGulf&Sliip Island road at an average distance east and west of about 33 miles, and having a total of 107 miles over very easy grades, with all the ties and timbers necessary for Its construction growing on the right of way, nnd requiring but a few bridges of any consequence. This line forming a link In a grand central trunk lino all tho way up to Dulutb on Lake Superior, would certainly be of greater benefit to Scrauton and the Port of Paseagoula than a spur of the Mobile, Jackson & Kansas City rail road from Brushy down via Howell, Howington, Hurley and Big Point to Moss Point, which has recently rccei v-1 ed considerable attention In railroad circles. PRIVATE" JOHN ALLEN. The gmisaro locking horns and their head-on 'collision made the first racket, henid at Winona on the Kith Inst. In the tournament Private John Allen and Anse McLaurin shook their manes at each other in true old Democratic style. It Is not reported that they put up at the same hotel and slept in the same room and bed, as used to be the old-timer's custom after a till was over between two as piring candidates Tor the people's sup port. We do not think they did. How ever, we hare read their speeches and nur courage Is screwed up to the stick l"K point, '.mat Is to stick by Allen, whose candidacy we have advocated ironi the beginning. Jlis political and official career is as ciear or flaws iui McLaurin's is full of specks. Both are being tried and t 1...I. ..1. . . vmii ciiaraciers ana actions have proved a contrast between selfish and overbearing, even contemptuous treat- i"'mu mwnris me people by Gov. Mc Laurin. and chivalrous, abiding and magnetic Individuality of Congress man Alien, wuose solo aim has been to serve t hem for their benefit, being muen one or mem to be a nepotist and a giiaii -l tooetiieuist. "Private" John Allen is t the manor horn a typical Mississippian. possessing the qualities that endear him to our hearts; his openness or Democratic fidelity, his erudition in matters of State, his inimitable wit whose points arc always in our behalf, his long established courage, and his spotless honor. He should be elected by all odds in preference to McLaurin. 'Deip Water" the Pass Word for Office. OdUK Si'inxwi, Midi., Jfar. SO, Mm. Eilltur Iloniociat-Stiir.
