Sixteenth Annual Meeting, ureat Interest Manifested. The Annual meeting of.the Mis sissippi Banker’s Association was opened in the Opera House here, at 10 o’ clock Wednesday morning. The stage was tastefully decorated with potted plauts and lovely flowers in rich profusion. The meeting was called to order by President Thomas, of Grenada, after which a fervent and impres sive prayer was offered up by Rev. J. D. Hunter, of this city. Mayor Anderson then delivered a felic itous addrees of welcome, tender ing the hospitalities of the city to the bankers, which was eloquently ■responded to by Mr. R. L. Beunett, of the First National Bank of Ya zoo City. The addresses of each of these gentlemen were appropriate aud splendid efforts and elided frequent bursts of applause from the large audience which was com posed of visiting aud local hankers and business men of the city. A resolution offered by Mr. R. L. Bennett, was adopted by a rising vote, tendering the sympathy oE the Association to Hon. John M. Allen, on account of the deep be reavement which he has just suf fered through the tragic death of his brother, Walter Allen, at St Lo ds. C'apt C. A. Johnston, of Columbus, presented a telegram of sympathy to Mr. Allen which wan adopted and ordered bent to him at bt Louis where he now is. After these opening proceedings President Thomas ordered a call of the roll, which being made. President Thomas read an elabo rate address which was & tborougb >• i IV DUBILltrsMJ [JHjjtri awuuuuiug ill timely suggestions upon the broad subject of baukiug. Ho reviewed some of the needed changes in leg islation in order to enable the banks to more tullv meet the de mands of the business world. He was in favor of u money ordt r sys tem like ttiat of the Government; and express companies and believ-1 ed it would add greatly to the ad- j vantage of the banks and business public. He spoke of the state de pository system aud claimed that it would be to the advantage of the state to have such a system, lie also referred'to the measure be fore congress to iusure cieau mo ney and referred to the system practiced of sewing bills iu ex press packages which tended to destroy them. He recommended district meetings for the purpose of brmging baukers together ofteu er thereby insuring a fuller under standing of the needs of the bauk ers and the people with whom they transact business. At the afternoou session Mr. W. E. Savage, of Okoloua, read a very fine paper ou the “Banker—His Moral Responsibility.” Mr. Sav age’s paper was au exceedingly strong one. He portrayed, iu his _ Jnl nf Ivn ■> It />!• ♦ .1 ft. Ml /« It t iiiuu vi it j r b man, the honorable—geutlemau, the cautious financier who doesn’t speculate—one who recognized the claims of society on him and pur sued the steady aud straightfor ward ways of integrity, houor and Fair dealing at all times. Mr. Sav age enjoys the distinction of be ing the only one of the many ben edicts of the Association who brought his wife with him. Mrs. Savage is an attractive and pretty lady aud received many attentions From the ladies of this city who made her acqnaintpuce. Mr. -I- M. Taylor, of the First National Bank of Port Gibson, read a very interesting paper on I he “Country Banker,” which was replete with common sense and a proper judgement of this impor tant factor in the busiuess of the State. The secretary then began the call of districts and requested in formation relative to the genital business of each district. Respou sea were made by bankers of each district of the s'ate and in every instance most flittering repot were made. Capt. < . A. Julinst- •, the sparfiling widower of the As sociation, spoke for the first di trict and said that the farmers t Columbus, last fall, hauled in w.i r ou loads of corn for sale and ct r ried back wagon loads of mone . Some representatives from t e delta gave glowing accouuts of con ditions down I Imre; but one gen tleman said that last week busi ness was a little dull in his count.. There had not been a new bank started that week and he felt no easy about the supply of mom y giving out. Tim cow counties ney woods) had several represe - tatives to talk and each of tb> n told about the same story of prog ress in his section. Ormg.-n iem u said that ttoere was a saw mill n his neighborhood and that that u s 6‘nough to take all the money 1 s bank could get hold of. Gibers toi.l of then trig cities being buib, - iliew luilromls in course of coo sliUftion, then cuttle and she p interests, the syiup | roduclion, ihe oysters shipped and packed and maDy other wonderful things. The people down there don’t use pine knots for lights any longer and instead of using sorghum lor “sweetnin” actually use the p od uet of the ribbon cane in iln ir families while the better class of hotels use a fair article of clarified sugar. These repoits were very in teresting and show a wonderful advancement in all lines of busi ness in our great state. All of them were made in plain, practical statements and without nttemp a at oratory. Following the district repoits there were calls made on the vi itiug brethren, all of whom respon ded in brief, terse and happy lit tle speeches of a few minute*. All of them said nice things abftut Ti - pelo and not one of them forgot t<« throw bouquets to the Indies of whom there were a few pme it.

This bank was admirably represented Ik these gentlemeu who must hu\e beeuseut out to show the wide range of nationalities included on the bank’s ledger. Mr. I'i p.u spoke iu the court language of na lions, emphasized by .lie ehiugt.i the shoulders used by polite pi-.# pin where he came from, while M Keuuedy used the soft and su.. ; accents of “ilie flue old Irish g-n ilemau'’ that he is. This pair mu ic the hit of the day. Mr. Frank W.
