It is quite evident that the ni.ijnri ty if the profound thinkers of the country, statesmen, public men and ch(i)ars, have taken a determined stand against imperialism. Thetfrcal er numter of them hae Iwn life-iontt Ib-publicanaand the question tiaaliern asked can the Republican party sur - vive such a loss of brains it has sus tained because of President McKin ley Philippine policy? In a speech delivered in Nebraska last month, ex Gov. AltgeM, of Illinois sounded the keynote of the battle that will be fought against imperialism next year. He said: ''The question Is not one of expan sion. It is not a question whether we shall add territory to the Republic and increase the population that shall be subject to the Constitution and laws of the United. States, it Is a question of fstaolihing a despotic system of government. It Is a ques tion of following in the wake of Eng land and holding subject colonies whose people shail be governed, not according to t he principles of our Con stitution and laws, but in violation of thcru, and whose people, instead of becoming American citizens, are tooc py tie relation to us that thev form erly occupied toward Spain. It is be cause this nmt result in the ultimate destruction of our own llfcerties'and the overthrow of our own institu tions that the alarm is raised. "It is a deliberate and wilful perver sion of the principles always adviv cated by the Democratic party. t ay that it fails to perceive the differ ence brtween expansion and imperial ism. That the party has always been one of progress and national expan sion Is evidenced by the fact that it was the Ietuocratic party that added whatever new possessions the original thirteen colonies had. But it always Insisted that such expansion should be in conformity with our Constitu tion and laws. There is a vast differ ence between adding territory under our Constitution and laws, and creat ing a sovereignty independent of them to he governed by the federal author itles exclusively, as mere colonies." Winter Visitors to the Gulf Coast. Before the commercial embargo, ex- spurtly called yellow fever quaran tine, was discontinued the fall and winter tourists from the North and and West began to arrive along the entire stretch of our gulf coast from Mobile to New Orleans and an In creased number for so early a date in the season has appeared at our differ ent resorts and those who have al ready enjoyed the comfort ani delight of sojourning on our Sound coast though for the present, a few are set tled for the winter. The hotels and boarding houses lould leave no effort unturned to make their hostelries attractive and up-to date in every particular for the entertainment of guests, as every thing points to a larger influx of visi tors than usual.

The people haven't much to show for the money, and it seems to be a foregone conclusion that among the first acts if the next, Legislature will be to cut, off the appropriations and this will virtually cut oil the Board of Health. Yazoo City Herald. We are decidedly In favorof cutting off the appropriation for next year to $1,000 which will virtually do away with the State Board of Health. Cotton mills are being started all over the State, except the gulf const counties.

The beiinH-ratic politicians here are elated over the return from the twelre State where elections were held Tuesday. The interest it: these centered in Ohio, Nebraska, Mary 1 ,and and Kentucky. Beduae of the fact that in Ohio the Issues were nar rowed down to a question of endorse ment of Mckinley's administration, the chief anxiety in these elections was as to the result in that State. The Bepubl'ans were forced to make as despcrau tight to retain the Slate as they would do if the Presidency it self were at stake; and the result shows clearly the weakness of t be ad ministration in what has been con sidered its stronghold. In Nebraska, where the Republicans made heroic efforts to defeat Btyan, liieKepublicans lust over liOUOas con pared with 1807. In Maryland the Democrats made practically a clean sweep, turning out the Republicans who had gained a temporary hold up on the Stale, urjon purely local issues, Kentucky appears to be safe fr Goe bel, and even Massachusetts aud Iowa the Republicans suffered heavy losses, although they managed to bold the Mates. In view of the carrpaign made In Ohio, and the heavy losses of the Re publicans to Jones, the Golden liu candidate, the State may ne safely put in the doubtful column next year and it will be so considered by conser vatlve politicising. To carry the Suite for Nash, the Republicans had access to unlimited funds from the Republi can national umimittee; the Slate was filled for weeks with federal office holders from Washington, working with arguments and money for Nash; and the old plan of political assess ment upon ofllce holders was revived, in nagrant violation or the civil ser vice law. And yet. In spite of all this ine aiai.e snowed a large Keoublican loss. There was but lukewarmness in response to the constant appeal to Re publicans to support the administra tion, nn morally at least, the Presi dent and his party received a decided set-back to his own State. The friends of Admiral Schley in Washington and there are man v of them interpret the defeat of Gov ernor Lowndes in Maryland as a re buke to the naval clique that has per sistently endeavored to minimize Schley work at Santiago and to mag- nify that of Sampson. The President was warned early during the summer by leading Republicans, headed by Gen. Felix Angus, of the Baltimore American, that the treatment of Schley by the Navy Department, was a sore subject with Marylanders, and the results show that in Frederick county, the home of Admiral Scblev a Republican majority of I.OOO in 1890 has iieen turned into a Democratic majority if 700. And there were other losses in Republican counties which can only be account d for on th same grounds. The magnificent response of Ne braska to Bryan's appeals to keep in line tor Democratic principles, is a signal victory for the Democratic can didate for the Presidency. It puts nun clearly to the fronl for 1U00, and if any doubt whatever had existed as to his renomination. it should be re moved by the manner in which lie is endorsed at home, against the mo zealous work of the republicans to break him down. The results prove that the Presi dent has no strength before the coun try as a "war candidate." Whatever fleeting prestige may have been to his advantage because of the unequaled work of the navy in the Spanish war, has vanished from political considera tion. If Mr. McKlnley is renominat ed, as is very doubtful, he will go be fore the country on his record as Pres- ident, and the new issues before the country as the result of his adminis tration. He will not receive anv con siderable help from the fact that a war Is in progress in the Philippines, and there will be none of tlic tradi tional fear to swap horses while cross ing a stream. Taken all In all, the Democrats in Washington are thoroughly pleased with the results Tuesday. They rind no cause for discouragement in any quarter, but on the contrary there is the utmost confidence that matters are all going their way. and that the Republican losses everywhere, indi cated plainly In the elections just held, will continue and increase to such an extent as to insure Bryan's easy victory twelve months hence. It Is a fact, also, that the Republican leaders are discouraged with the evi dent defections from their strength everywhere. There is nnlittlediseus slon of the wisdom of sidetracking Mr. McKlnley and making the race next year with Harrison, Reed. Roose velt or Dewey. Any of these Repub licans say, would be more likely to win than McKlnley; and they argue that bis weakness having been expos ed, it would be folly to venture an other campaign under his leadership. General Wheeler, of Alabama, who holds a commission as brigadier gen eral In the Philippines, announces that he will return in time to be sworn In as member of the House. He was re-elected to Congress, and subse quently was appointed by the Presi dent in the Volunteer army. In view of the refusal of the House to dispose of the question of Wheeler's right to hold these two appointments at the same time, It. will return to vex that body again in December. Speaker Reed had no sympathy whatever with Wheeler's determination to retain both places, and when the General sought recognition on the floor, the Speaker firmly and persistently refus ed to see him. It Is not. probable that Speaker Henderson will be so deter mined. Wheeler has many friends In the House, who believe that unques tionably the General has no right to serve In the army and at the same time In Congress. But some of them have not the moral courage to vote as they believe, and they evade the Issue when it Is presented. The Judiciary Committee unanimously reported that the General should be unseated, but the House omitted to take up the question and dispose of It. M. H. L. MARINE.

A talk with trustee, patron nd pupils. The law ay "Trustor nll look af ter the iDt.'rusts of their m-hooU. Oue of their number shall visit the same tt leut once during each month ; nee that fuel U provided, protect the school property, make provisions for the wel fare and comfort of the pupils." The spirit of the law goe further, and re quire you to do more than thi, but have you done even this much? Have you visited your school this month, or do you intend to before the month ckwea? Do you intend to sign the teacher's monthly report and enumera tion without any knowledge of the same? The teacher will need your help with the enumeration. It U very im portant that every pupil In the school district should be enumerated; on this depend our appropriation for school purposes. Do you see how important, theu, it Is? vo you exeouraite your children to bring borne tales from school exparte testimony against the teacher and pu pus? I hope not. Kneourage pleasant incidents. When a hoy I was ashamed to tell my mother that I had missed my lesson, was kept in for misbehavior or got a'-licklng," and was afraid to tell mr father. Sometimes; RUIy Howling tell a tale of woe after school to parents, of how he was badly treated, poor fellow, knocked down by liarney Hunting, on purpose, of course, kept in at recess, without cause, or punished in some way by the teacher, terribly wronged. Billy is list ened to, sympathized with, poor fellow, and encouraged to be pugnacious and disobedient, and the next thing there's trouble in the camp. Hilly, if the truth was known, is the cause, but the teach er is blamed. Sometimes the usefulness of a teacher is destroyed by a few had and disobedient pupils. Encourage your children to tell pleas ant things. Teach your boy and girls to respect the teacher love will come next, and you know the influence of love it rules the world. Have you ever thought that respect and love are insep arable. Whon you lose respect for any one is there much love lost? You haveouly four or live children.and sometimes can't keep down quarrels and fights, and they go to school, where they meet twenty or thirty, sometimes more boys and girls, Just as full of the warm blood of life Just as mischievous as yours, (not bad) and expect the teacher to make angels of them. Teach them to behave and also learn "lots" without your co-ojeration. Nhow me a boy who hasn't life enough to play, quarrel aud scratch a little, and very often I'll show you a Hull boy. Educated energy is what we want. Much might be said on this line, but backed by you, trustees and patrons. Have you looked after the comfort and needs of your teacher? Is there a good blackboard and chalk? Has the roof been patched? I lave you provided wood and plenty of pure water? Has the teacher a chair and table? Is there a foot way across the branch to keep teacher and pupils from wading; in fact, do you know anything more than that "school keeps?'! Have vou urovided books, paers, slates and pencils? lhere are so many, many ways in which you can encourage both teacher and pupils. The interest of the school demands it. It us get all we can out of tlu-se four months, remembering that education is a companion, which no mis fortune can depress, no enemy alienate ana 110 desiK)tisin enslave; at home a friend, abroad an introduction, In soli tude a solace, and in society an orna ment AO VICE TO THE BOYS ANDOI11LS. be kind to your teacher and she will be kind to you. Some of these days all this bright, glorious and free country will be yours. Vou will be the lawyers, doctors, preachers, merchants, farmers, mothers and fathers and hold all post Hons of honor, trust and mercy, and we now need your help to make our schools, your schools better. Remember the golden rule. Do you know it? If not, ask your teacher. Tell your parents the pleasant things of school life; help your teacher in any way you can; in ploin words, show your teacher partiality, and if this rule doesn't work then I've never been a boy und loved my teacher. PAPTIALITV. You sometimes accuse the teacher of showing pa.llr.liiy to other child-en Have you taken the trouble to find out whether your neighbor's children show partiality to the teacher? Do you know .r care that Hilly I;, is rude to his play mates, impolite to the teacher, swears, quarrels, smokes ciaretie.i at shcool, re fuses to loam his lessons, sticks pins in Barney, even fights, and does a thousand tricks to worry others, and then expect Miss Patience to treat that boy like she does liarney who meets her with a pleasant smile, looks after her comfort' has good recitations; in fact, is a model boy. "Hon! soit qui mal y pense." It would Indeed be a hard matter to return evil for good. Do you expect the boy who insults and threatens the teacher when he is tried to be controlled, with "I'm going to tell my ma or pa," and so on, to he petted and called sweet names? The sweet little fellow. Can yon expect onr teachers to be more than human. Re member the story of the echo. Next week I expect to talk about good reading and its importance. In eonclu sion, permit me to appeal again to trus tees, patrons, teachers and the boys and girls, our boys and girls, to do all yon can to make this school term successful. The future will bring us our reward. ESCaTlWM ITEHS. BY 8CRIBUS. Heavy fogs prevail. The mills are Idle yet for want of logs. Mr. Fred Elder is doing an extensive logging bnslness.

So all over the world yon will find peo ple who drink or eat soup from a spoon ana some who take it down with a noise like a pig.
