I A Question of Importance, The question of establishing a State Normal School in the South western part of Arkansas, is being considerably agitated, and if we are not mistaken, has been broached in the Legislature. The'- Important question is, where will it be loca ted, established? Several different times the Pica Yt’NK has advocated the claims of Prcsweolt and asked that it he lo cated here. There is no question ing the fact that no other town in the South-west can offer superior inducements in the way of conven ience of locality, health fulness, good artesian water, an intelligent progressive population, etc. It is clear these things go a great way iu securing such institutions, hut ulone will not always succeed in doing so. The town that has most public spirit, and is willing to do nate a suitable lot for building pur poses, or money to secure the Nor mal school, will be apt to get it. Now , we write thin article in or der. to stir up the enterprising offi cers and citizens of our town. Can’t you make a donation of a good lot and also offer other in ducements in order to secure the State Normal school here? It would help budd up Prescott, at tract the attention of the world to it, besides bringing more trade and money into our midst. The town can certainly afford to give a suitable lot in such a good cause if nothing more. We urgently re quest our city officers to take hold of this matter. The slate normal school can certainly be secured by proper efforts b( mg made in time, in ease one is established, and in no event would anything bo lost by a wise course. The Four Mill Tax In liis canvass last summer our representative promised the vot orB of Nevada County that if lie was elected that he would make an effort to reduce the tour mill tax. Last week he introduced a bill in the house which was made a Fpe ciM order for to-day, refunding f>() percent Of the fcilfit »,<XH> of this mon ey that is lying in the state treas ury, hack to the counties. If Mr. White succeeds in getting that bill through, Nevada's proratta will be about *">,4"0, which w ill help us in our business, and that smartly too. The bill provides that no county officer has any right to charge any per cent for handling tiiis money, but the’county*Judge ban use it eith er in defraying the expenses of the cohnty,or ior buying in tho out standing script. Ih otiier Words, be can use ii as he deems proper lor the best interest of the county. We hope the bill will get through and become a law; the money is doing no good were it is, and had just as well bo returned to the counties from whence it came, ami tho four mill tax reduced to 2 1-2 mills. lion. T. V. Mcltuc. Although Yell county is not in the Third congressional district, our people are greatly interested in the success of tho democracy thereof. The elevation of Hon. J. K. Jones to the United States sen ate has created a • acanoy in the congressional delegation, and a number of true and tried demo crats will be candidates for the hon or of represesenting the Third dis trict in the next congess. W hile each of the gentlemen named would make a most excellent representa tive, the. Mail asks to bo allowed to add its endorsement to the claims of Hon. Thus. C. Mcliao, of Nev a da county. In 18,SJ, Col. Mediae was a candidate for congressman at-large, and weut into the conven tion with more votes than any of his competitors; ami though de feated lie-wont dowu with Hying colors. Ho is a lawyer of ability, an orator of high order, and belongs to the progressive wing of the democratic party, being abreast of the times on all questions of pub lic policy. If the democracy of the Third district nominates and elects Torn Mediae tothe scat to he vacated by J. Iv. Jones, they will never regret their choice.—Yell County Marl. We thank the mail very kindly, for the compliment it pays our fel low townsman. A liiLL has be«ii introduced, and passed the house, providing for a commissioner to examine the ac counts of county officials. In our opinion the people would rSn as great a risk in electing or appoint ing a inau that would do Ins whole duty as <hey vt-ould in electing the county officer that would till (he office honestly and efficiently.

A Sw iss colony re cently settled in Kentncy are suc ceeding financially and have turn ed their industry to grape and wine culture, and send samples of the latter. Henderson county is one of the richest in tobacco and wheat. The Angora goat is being bred suc cessfully and fine wool conies therefrom. Hemp is largely rais ed and manufactured into bagging for cotton. Chas. E. Davis is in charge of tin*, fruit display, and has' a process whereby, at a cost of a few cents, any kind of fruit, vege table, or meat can be preserved, without sealing, heating or sweet ening, for ypsrs.

The total loss is estimated at over a million dollars—insurance | about one-half. The Inter-State •News, newspaper office was burn ed. Its loss was near 19,000, with I only 83,000 insurance.

There are so many applicants for the portion of Post-master in the city of luifaula, Alabama, that the good people of that place have concluded to lighten the burden of President elect Cleveland by order ing a inass meeting of tbe towns people to have a primary election when every democratic tax-payer filial! cast his ballot for the man of his choice. In other words, the peo ple are to elect their own post master, and all President Cleve land has to do is to send into the Senate for confirmation of thc i lucky nian. Doth the Gazette and Democrat are opposed to legislation on the subject of regulating the tariff on railroads. For nearly two weeks, j day after day, artlc'et have appear ed in each strongly opposed to any measure proposing such a thing. Why they are so one-sided, we are ] unable to say. It is aii incontro vertible fact that in Georgia and othef states, where the law rogn-l late* railroad* tariff, it has worked well, proving not only ot untold benefit to the people, but also bringing in more revenue to the railroads. We hope our Legisla ture will pass a law giving the peo pie just and reasonable rates, and prevent unjust discriminations By railroads. IN support of a bill for the pro tection of gam** at certain seasont of Die year, which passed the Sen ate last Friday, and is now a law, Senator Grookett said: “I’m per sonally interested in this bill.
