To meet the effort being made by the Loulsvlllo and Nashville railroad and the Pascagoula Commercial Club to attrnct visitors toour sea coast, it is essential that, a modern hotel should be erected in Pascagoula that will pro vide for the comfort and entertain ment of guests, however up-to-date may be their expectations and de mands. Many Influential citizens of Mobile have assured the Dkmocrat-Star re porter that Pascagouta and Ocean Springs are the recognized resorts for their summer sojourns, and that It has only required such measures as theone inaugurated of the coast accommoda tion train, which affords them a quick, short and pleasant opportunity to reach those places. The subject of building such a hotel should be taken into serious consider ation, and the sooner it is done the better. Pascagoula is preeminently the spot for a sea shore hotel, owing to the location facing almost the open sea, the Islands in thedlstance serving more as breakwaters than hs obstruc tions to the flow of the waves and the blow of the breezes. Tbe waters of the bay of Pasragoula are sufficiently salty for the most de lightful and healthy bathing over hard sandy bottom. In times past Pasca goula was tbe favorite sea side resort of tbe Mississippi Sound coast. rOTOTHTFJULY. The deep water celebration and com mercial picnic to be bold at Pascagoula on Wednesday, July 4, will be a grand affair. There Is evidence that the en tertainment will gather together a large assemblage of patriotic and pro gressive citizens of Jackson county. Those who have the management of the celebration in band have left noth ing undone to assure s signal success. Such meetings of our people areof the highest importance towards social and commercial development. The old, the middle aged and the young will he there, and the opportunities which will be afforded them for enjoyment and observation will certainly redound to the credit of Pascagoula and its im mediate surrouudlngs. Let all come and enjoy themselves, for such can be their day's glorification of the natal day of our greatand progessive nation. Selection of School Books. Natihei Democrat. In a short time all the counties in the State will be called upoo to make a selection of text books for the public schools thereof, and the choice, If ex perience of former years Indicates any thing, at present is that ft is not with out its perplexities. The American Book Company already has Its hired emissaries working like beavers to In fluence the matter of selections, and they will leave nothing undone to hold the State within their grasp. It is one of the most powerful concerns in existence a gigantic trust and will not fail to resort to any means to ac complish the end they have in view. The trust has oppressed the people all over the South with cheap and flimsy prints, for which extortionate charges are made, and their books are not flt for Southern children to study. Where It Is possible all the studies have a sec tional coloring and it is said tn many instances they are extremely partial and unfair. Theeditorof theOxford Globe seems to entertain a mortal dislike to Hon. R. H. Henry, of the Jackson Clarion Ledger. It looks a little out of place for one editor of the State press to make caustic and slighting remarks. In his paper, of a brother editor, simply because of some old grudge. It Is evi dently the outcome of narrow oreiu dice and personal spcen, unbecoming a broad-minded moulder of public opinion. It it always best to keep such personalities out of our papers. Col. Henry Is an able editor and a splen did newspaper man. By hard work and untiring energy, he has pushed himself to the forefront in Mississippi Journalism, and has always proven himself to be a kind, liberal and con servatlve gentleman, and his paper is certainly one of the best published in the State. West. Point Leader. The appropriation of 120,000 for a geological survey for Mississippi failed to pass congress, but Senator Sullivan says that the matter will again be pushed In the next congress. Tbe board of trustees of the Stat University have eatabllshed a depart ment or civil and and electrical engi neering and provided for tbe purchase of necessary apparatus, Who In the thunder put It Into the heads of the negroes to want to take the census In this state? Tbe negro equalizing while man who urges a ne gro to apply for office it just as low down at the lowest and ought to be made to eat and sleep and associate with him. Euporla Progress. Ned Cobb, a domineering netrroover at Devall's Landing, La., rodea bicycle to town and got amunltlon. Then be wrote notices to about twenty-five white men, warning them to leave the parish on pain of death. He Is dead now died a natural death at the bandt of tome one of the twenty-five. Hod. E. F. Noel, tbe author of the elective Judiciary amendments, which nave Darn declared void by the Su preme Court, says: "The ouestlon of election of all Judges by district will ne submitted to the people again, In a form to defy the critical criticisms, and will, I doubt not, be ratified by an unquestionable majority. Delay doee not mean defeat, nor a temporary ro yene aa ultimate ralltm." Kentucky li tor Bryan and the Chi cago platform. CALL FOR A CONVENTION. Sixth District Democrats to Meet at Biloxi, August 2. The Democrat ic executive commit tee of the Sixth congressional district of Mississippi met at the parlors of the Denechaud Hotel, In New Orleans. There being a quorum present, Y. If. Lewis, of Scranton, was elected tem porary secretary. Tbe following order was passed: It Is ordered by the Democratic ex ecutive committee of the Sixth con gressloniiljdlstrict of the State of Mis sissippi that a delegate convention be held in the city of Biloxlnn Thursday, the 2d day of August, 1900, for the pur pose of nominating a Democratic can didate for congress from said district, and for the purpose or selecting a new district executive committee. It Is further ordered that the county executive committees, of the counties of this congressional district, order such modes of selecting delegates to said convention at Biloxi as tn them seem proper; that July 28 is hereby set as the date for 'selecting all such dele gates by the respectivecounties. It Is further ordered that the coun ties composing the congressional dis trict have twice the number of votes In the convention that they have in the house of representatives of the State of Mississippi. On motion the committee adjourned to meet In the city of Biloxi on Au gust 2, 1900. M. H. Wilkinson, Chairman. F. II. Lewis. Secretary. Mutt Qo. No doubt every one of the State of ficials, from the members of the legls. lature down, realize that a great mis take was made when the public print ing contract was given to the Florida printing concern. We are told that Secretary of State Power, recently, re ceived quite a batch of proof from the so-called State printers. They were the worst he ever saw. Col. Power has read a million galleys of proof, but never before did be tackle any worse than those from Jacksonville. The State printers must employ the cheap est laborobtainable veritable "rats." The type Is machine set. and will av erage at least one hundred mistakes to the galley. The printer who would put up such type would not be toler ated on a third class weekly newspa per. Not only are the first proofs abominable, but tho revises are had for ordinary first proof sheets. The sooner Mississippi gets rid of her pres ent public printers the better fot the State. 25,000 FOR BRYAN. Mr. John R. McLean's Donation to the Campaign Fund. New York, June 16. According to a local paper John R. McLean, who is In enroute for Europe, lias sent a personal check for $25,000 to W. J. Bryan to be used In the campaign. This check was sent, It Is said, as an evidence of gnod will and to offset any bad effect of the misconstruction of his trip to Europe, The information about the check, this paper says, positive, coming only sec ond handed from Mr. McLean. A five-story hotel in Hattlesburg would be a most excellent investment. This city needs It and It needs It verv badly. People cannot go to a city and attend to business where they cannot get hotel accommodations. This is the fix Hittieshurg Is in and it is los ing In trade every day. Hattlesburg Progress. Scranton Is in about the same Ox that Hattlesburg is relative to hotel accommodations. Scranton could do well with a three-story up-to-date hotel. It must be modern in all Its details and appointments. It should be located on the Pascagoula river front, a convenient distance from the depot. We believe such a hotel would pay a handsome dividend to the pro prietor. The Atlanta Journal utters the fol lowing timely warning: In referring to our government some satirists now speak of it as 'The Empire.1 If we continue as we are going there will soon be more truth than satire In thit designation." Boss Hanna used cuss words when a newspaper man nsked his opinion of tne wholesale stealing by postal of ficials in Cuba, which doubtless r. fleeted bis real sentiments, but will not be accepted by the people at an explanation. The Republican national convention it In session In Philadelphia at the time the Democbat Stak It put to press, and there is scarce a doubt but McKinley and Roosevelt will be the nominees of the convention for presl. dent and vice-president. All good citizens, regardless of party politics, rejoice that the National Republican Convention became nau seated with the dominating doings of the carpet-bag, negro office-holding rl ng of these Gul f States. A car load of choice milch cows has been shipped from Starkvllle to Hav ana, Cuba. Complaint comes from nearly every portion of the State that crops have been damaged by excessive rains. At several polntt It amounted almost to water spouts. The Mississippi Press Association met tt Jackson on Wednesday. The proceedings will appear In the next liiueoftbe Dkmockat-Stab.
