Mr. .Blaine made a telling home
rule speech in Portland on last Tues
day. He thinks the difficulties be
tween England and Ireland cduII be
permanently settled by adopting come
thing I ke the American system. The
distinguished gentleman seems to be
sound oa the just principle of bom
rule now, but just before and after his
defeat by President Cleveland be
talked very much like be would
appreciate it, if the Southern States
could be deprived of home rule and
put under a military despotism. We
are very glad he expressed himself so
plainly about Irish affairs, for he
could sot well advocate in future
another reconstruction of any of the
Southern States.
The Prohibition question, to a cer
tain extent, resembles the railroad
supervision question. To be effectual
It must be national. Let as illustrate
this. What benflt will it be to the
little towns on our North and South
trunk line railroads to declare for
Prohibition, when those who wish to
drink can send to New Orleans or
Memphis and get barrels, kegs,
jugs or cases of l'quor? We learn
that the practice is already common
la the prohibition counties. We ere
Informed that it is very little more, if
any more, difficult now to get liquor in
Columbus, than It was before that
city went "dry."
Our prohibition friends will have to
make it a National issue to accomplish
their purpose.
QIf the real estate owners of a city
wish to get rich, the way to do it, is to
build up the city. We clip the
following from the Chicago Timee:
"The Chicago Cottage Organ company
paid $105,000 for 168 feet on Twenty
second street, near Paulina, with
sixteen other lots in the same blcck.
The Presbyterian Theological seminary
sold 38 feet on Canal street, north of
Randolph, for $25,000. The same sum
was paid by Charles L. Hutchinson for
75 feet on Prairie avenue, near
Thirtieth street, and by Christian
Teufel for 644 fett on the northwest
corner of State and Fifty-eighth streets.
Henry J. Willing purchased 68 feet on
the northwest comer of Chicago
avenue and State street for $20,400.
Charles D. Dickey sold 50 feet on State
street, south of Twentieth, for $15,000.
Miss Gertrude Martin, of For
Hallry, Ga., while out blackberrying
Tuesday was bitten by a snake. About
sundown, just as the party with her
was ready to return home, Miss Martin
cried out that she was bitten by a
snake. Her sister ran to her and,
pulling off the shoe and stocking of the
wounded limb, saw only a slight
scratch, as if made by a pin. She at
once applied her mouth to the bite and
tried to suck out the poison, but the
limb began swelling at a rapid rate,
She stopped sucking and, taking her
handkerchief, tied it around the leg
just below the knee. In the meantime
the young lady had gone to the house
for assistance. In about an hour Miss
Martin was taken to the house, where
all that was possible was done to re
lieve her. The swelling continued un
til her entire body was swollen out of
all proportion, and in five hours after
the snake had fastened Its fang into
her flesh she was a corpse. Her death
was a horrible one, and yet she was
conscious up to the last moment. Her
writhings were terrible.
The New Orleans Picayune makes
John Kelly's death the occasion for an
article against bosses and bossism. It
declares the bosses must go, and that
the country has happily grown beyond
the boss period.
The distinction between bosses and
leaders is so fine, that few can tell tha
difference. So great a leader, or
boss, as Mr. Conkling sneered
at a party that pretended to
be without bosses. He declared
that a party without leaders was like
ai army without officers. In both the
great parties to-day there are men
called by some bosses and by others
leaders. Mr. Tilden was called by his
own partisans a sage and a great
leader, whila his opponents called him
the Democratic boss. Mr. Blaine is
undoubtedly the leader of his
party, and he fills every definition of
boss. He is bold, aggressive, and he
cast his anchor to windward when he
had the opportunity.
If the Pic means that the dishonest
bosses are to go, we hope its prediction
Is true; if it means the capable, honest
leaders are to go, we trust it is error
CITY WATER WORK8.
We trust that this important and
valuable Improvement will be com
pleted this Summer. There are many
pressing reasons why this step, which
will have to be made sooner or later,
should be made at once. A good sys
tem of works will lower the rate of in
surance, which is an everlasting tax.
One of our best business men assures
us that if the insurance companies put
the rate of insurance at the same fig
ures that prevail in other cities
that have waterworks, that the saving
In insurance alone, will more than pay
the Jinterest on waterworks bonds.
That Is on'y one consideration. In
addition to that, there is the encour
agement of manufactures, the increase
of healtbfulness and cleanliness, and
the luxury and comfort of having an
abundant supply of pure water. Vicke
burg is so located on hills that a
perfect system of drainage era
be made, and the waterworks made
available to keep all drains, closets
and sewers clean. '
It is quite certain that the water
works will pay, and that they will
prove of great value in keeping up the
growth of the city. We should think
there would be no great trouble In
placing the bonds and stock of a cor
poration managed by our best citizen?.
THE COUNTY DEBT. .
We present the statement of the
debt, made out by Auditor Hardy,
for the Board of Supervisors. The
showing demonstrates beyond a doubt,
the value of the reform movement ia-'
stituted by the Democratic party. The
debt is being rapidly reduced, and one
fruitful method by which the county
was swindled of thousands of dollars
the scrip speculation has been
abolished. Under instructions from
the party, our Representatives secured
a reform of the laws in that respect,
that works a saving of fifteen to
twenty-five thousand dollars annually.
Just what the leaders of the Demo
cratic party promised the people is
being verified in the most gratifying
manner. We have a good Sheriff,
County Treasurer, 'Assessor and
Board of Supervisors, and the
result should convince the most
exac ing, that the cit'zens who own
the county, the Democratic party,
ought to control its affairs. The peo
ple understand these facts perfectly,
and that the Commercial Herald
was the chief instrument of accom
plishing these valuable results, and
they will stand by it, although Mr.
Groome was appointed postmaster.
We have no ether purpose in view
than to maintain and comjhtethe re
form of our local affairs, which are
more important to the citizens than
any others, and if the citizens co
operate with us in the future as they
did last year, they will secure what
they are enti 1 d to economic tl, hon
est and efficient local rule, and respect
ful official servants, instead of corrupt,
boastful bosses.
VICKSBURG AS A COTTON
HARKET.
It is now the lixed purpose of our
leading business men, not only to re
tain the advantages we have as a cot
ton market, but to increase them until
Vicksburg gets every bale of cotton
that her location entitles her to. Not
so long ago, less than a dozen years
ago, some Vhksburg bouses col
lected cotton which was' shipped
to New Orleans. "Vicksburg then
was only a sort of cdiecting
point and New Orleans capital
controlled the staple. A great change
has been wrought since then. We
doubt that a single merchant of Vicks
burg uses any foreign capital, and we
have equally as good, and much less ex
pensive modes of handling cotton than
New Orleans. We have our own banks,
compresses, and insurants companies
and everything requisite for the prompt
and cheap handling of the staple. And
we are free from the troublesome
expensive unions, which tax cjtton so
heavily in New O bans, and which
have grown so powerful that even the
cotton factors are afraid to oppose
them. We have competition on
freights towards every point of the
compass, and that enables us to put
cotton on ship baard cheaper than New
Orleans, taking into account the
charges of the various unions in New
Orleans.
Many large planters who have tried
both markets within the last few years
declare their intention of shipping to
Vicksburg in future. They have dis
covered that the charges are less, the
returns quicker and that the weight
holds out better.
We refer to these facts because there
are numbers of persons ignorant of
Yicksburg's advantages, and look
upon the new Vicksburg as the
old Vicksburg, which was only an
agent of New Orleans. To all these
we wouli say, give Vicksburg a trial
and be convinced that unjust exactions
can be avoided and good prices and
prompt returns can be secured.
Road Closed to Cattle.
Editor of Vicksburg Commercial Herald.
Will you please allow me to notify
the public through your columns that
the road commencing at the Hall's
Ferry road, running through my place
leading to the Ivanhoe bridge, it closed
to stock drivers. If the public had
seen Mr. McCabe driving stock over
my cotton this evening they would not
blame me. Yours truly,

Further Particulars of John Kelly's
Death.
Telegraphic Correspondence New Orleans
i lines iienv crat.
John Ktlly, the famous chief of the
Tammany Hall section of the New
York Democracy, died Tuesday even
ing. His protracted illness had kept
him out lit sight so long, and the ac
count) of his improvements and col
lipses had been so numerous, that his
death Anally occurred without any pre
monit'.on to tie public.
His disease was a break up of the
nervous system, and he was for more
than a year deprived of the power to
eat or sleep normally. His weakness
of body extended to his mind, though
that fact was cjncefcl-id as much as
possible, and he was kept strictly se
cluded, UQder the i lea that any inter
course, even with friends formerly
most intimate, would dangerously hurt
him.
The truth seems to be that he be
cime, toward the hst, utterly imbecil',
and his supposed exertion of politic il
iofiueoci in the list municipal cim
paign was fic",iiious. ' His iaol ition was
so complete tiat no person, it is be
lieved, aside from his wife and bis phy
sician and the priest, knew of his linal
hours of sinking away.
Several political magnates Iving
vii-.hin half a dozen tq'iares of his
resident were not aware of his de
mise until the Times-Democrat c irres
pondent ca 1-d on them late tonight t
get particul.rs of the event. Tnt-y
were one and all astonished to learn
the news, for they had held no com
munication with "him for months, and
supposed that he was no worse off.
Two weeks ago his wife hoped to take
him out of town before the hot weath
er set in, and she made arrangements
to house him comfortably at Clifton
Springs, where he spent last summer.
Mrs. Kelly is tonight so prostrated
by her loss that she is hysterical. .
Mr. Iully sunk into death from ex
haustion and inanition. That is what
his physician says was bound to be the
true end of his malady.
He was a devout Catholic, having
been educated partially for the priest
hood, and having married a niece of
the late Cardinal McCloskey. It is
learned, however, that he was aware
for a week of his near death. His
confessor quotes him as saying: "I
have been called honest John Kelly,
and was proud to feel that I deserved
the t hie. v
That was said about ten days ago
when he was spoken to oo, the sut'jct,
and from that lime on he became weak
er and weaker until hedid quietly and
unconsciously.

A Remarkable Case Which Is Puz
zling the New York Medical Pro
fession. A dispatch from New York. May
28, says: The death of Utile Georgie
Cuitir, the twc-year-old child of Dr.
George K. Cutter, of Bedford avenue
and Tajbr street, Brooklyn, at the
residence of his grandfather, Mr. John
D. i'nncev in i Mbusb, has given rise
to much speculation on the part of
eminent physicians, and the real cause
of death' will no doubt be the theme
of medical debate for years to come.
The strange symptoms and suddenness
of the death make the case a remarka
ble one. Grandfather Cutter, who ap
pears to huVd been the primary, though
of cDurse innocent, ctuse of the litf.e
one's tali ing off, is well known in New
York philanthropic c'rcles and has had
much to do with the betterment of the
State prison inmates. Six weeks
ago Dr. Cutter's mother died of
diphtheria, and shortly afterward her
husband, who had been ailing with
throat and ear troubles, the supposed
result of blood poisoning, visit d his
son, the d ctor, at his Bedford Avenue
residence, for the purpose of obtain
ing hi advise. Mr. Cutter was more
dead than alive when he retched his
son's house and had to be aided up
stairs. Dr. Cutter, Dr. Litham, and
several other specialists who had been
called in saw that there was no hope
tor tne oia gentleman and determined
that he was a victim of blood poison
ing. He died shoitly afterward.
When he entered the house his two
little grandchildren, Essie, aged 4
years, and Georgie, aged 1 year and 11
months, ran to meet him and he took
the former into his arms and kissed
her. It is not known whether or not he
kissed Georgie, but it is t lought that he
did not. On the day following Esfi"
was taken with the diphtheria a: A
from up to the present has lingered
between life and death. Fearful of
results should the disease be commu
nicated to Georgie, the parents obtain
ed the seivlceof a trained nurse and
sent the little one to its parents', home
in Flaibush. This was on Sunday two
weeks ago. The li .tle fellow was as
lively as a cricket from that time to
Tuesday of last week. A small sore
began to work its way through the
ski'j on the right side of tie neck.
At first it was fcircely vi iole, but it
grew raj i lly and caused the little fel
low much uneasiness. A small plaster
was placed over ic In order to prevent
his scratching it. It. dm l'y became so
painful that tie tore tie plaster away,
ami made a slight incision In it
with the nails. As he grew visi
bly worse minute by minute Dr.
Homer L. Bartlelt who is a near
ueighbor of Mr. Prince1, was summon
ed, aod at once diagnosed the c ise and
dnounctd tiat the little one bad dip
theria of tie most malignant form.
Ou Wednesday the child grew steadily
worse. Dr. Ingraham, a prominent
spcialistwas called in consultation.
Dr. Cutter was also summoned and
tbe three remained at the bedside of
the little sufferer until Thursday morn
ing, when Georgie died. The little
one was buried in Greenwood oa Fri
day. The general impression prevails that
little Essie was impregnated with the
poison through kissing her grandpa,
and that sbe afterward.", even before
she has shown symptoms of such im
pregnation, had communicitid the
disease to her little brother through
kissing him, as the two were constant
play-fellows and were seldom oat of
each other's company.

SECRETARY MANNING
TEXDERS HIS RESIGNATION TO
THE PRESIDENT.
The President's Answer The
Secretary Reconsiders and Takes
a Leave of Absence.
WAsnmoTON. June4.-The follow
ing Belf-rxilinatory correspondence is
made public this evening :
. Washington, May 20.
My Dear Sir I have decided to plat e
in your hands my resignation of the
office which you did me the honor to
appoint me to fifteen months ago. My
reasons for this df clsion are both public
and personal. Since the partial recovery
oi my neaitn has permitted me to re- Mrf
fleet upon the demands of the pubtft)!JV
service to Which I havn olvpn'riBrhiinS
too freely all my strength and upon H
the conditions of resuming my labors
at your side, I have for a moment ques
tioned what must be my present duty.
The full recovery of my health prom
ises to be an affair of weeks, and a
longer period of rest, especially during
the hot weather, is prescribed or at
least advised as a prudent regimen
thereafter. Compliance with this ad
vice would not be practical were I to
resume now tie general direction of
the treasury department even if abat
ing something of the energy which it
s emed needful to expend in the first
year of my work. Supervision at a
distance would be more a hindrance
than a help to the acting secretary,
but it is not befitting that a
department of the government so diffi
cult and so Important should be ad
ministered by a convalescent studious
of sharing its daily exertions, nor the
watchful control of its enormous in-
flllAnpp nnr t.hu ovomit l.in ff leu flcfit
policies" ever under your wise leadf
snouia ue auempteo ny anyone con
cerned about husbanding his strength,
The fiscal policy of the federal govern
ment in respect to a debt so large, tax
ation so pervasive, and a curreccv
which is universal, cannot fail of being
a chief factor in nmbnal and individ
ual well being. Your own duty to
which you have addressed yourself
with such clear and unflinching pur
pose, the duty of congress in the prem
ises, and the laws which may yet be
enacted for the guidance of the treas
ury department, will require that you
be assisted in the administration by an
oflicar capable of full efficiency and
unwearied circumspection. Permit
me, therefore, without hesitation, to
accept my temporary disability as a
summons to stand aside and make
way for one immediately capable of
fulfilling every requirement of the
publi: service.
Very respectfully yours,
DANIEL MANNING,'
To the President.
Kxkcutivk Mansion. I
Washington. June 1, 18t6. j
My Dear Mr. Manning I have re
ceived vour lettr. in which vnnr rps
ijnation is tendered as secretary of the
treasury. The sentiments therein con
tained are entirely in keeping with the
uevouon to puonc duty and tne loyalty
to the Interests of the government
which have characterized your rela
tions to the present administration. I
am not surprised, though much im
pressed, by the concern wbijh you
evince for the correction of the abuses
and for the inauguration of the re
forms which, in your letter.you allude
to.and which have been so of cen topics
of our anxlousonsuhations. ' I have

largely by faith and confidence in you,
and in the wisdom of your views could
be qui jkened in the sense of responsi
bility and led to more harmonious
action upon the important questions
with whici you have'had to aeal. In
considering your proposed resignation,
t should be strongly urgerd by
my personal regard and friendship
and llV the value nf vnnr avrvinua tn
the cmntry, to beg you at occi t '
eumeiy uuauuuu your aetermination
to relioquim your part of the ardious vvvr
duties, but I am convinced that I V
should do this, and in all I surges' and , t
ask should have much at heaityour '' i
welfare and safety. You have placed : ?
your resignation in my hands, my
responsibility begins, and I know thht !
the responsibility will be met and the 1
wisnes oi tne people ot the land fully
assured when I ask you to postpone
tor a while any insistancj upon
the acceptance of your resigna
tion, and that your final con
clusion thereon may be delayed
until the effect of a continued rest and
freedom from official care upon your
condition may be restored. I therefore
earnettly request you to accept a leave
of absence until the first day of October
next, when if you desire it the ques
tion of your resignation may be
resumed with perhaps better means of
judgiog all the facts and probabilities
which should be considered in its de
termination. Hoping that you will
consent to this, and trusting that your
encouraging progress toward restora
tion to health may continue, I am
faithfully, your friend.
