W\e are under the impression that
Mr. Peck will have smooth sai!iig, and
we hardly think that lie will have any
opposition; but if he should, it would
be all the same, for his election if,
seoocthing like throwing up a quarter
and saying "heads I wint, tails you
lose"-he has got it pat. Mr. Peck
has made an excellent officer, and has
done his duty well, and we believe to
the satisfaction of every citizen of our
r town. Since he was elected two years
1 ago he has collected in fines the
amount of $1,083, and fines worked
out to the amount of $167. and his
r other work shows him to be the right
man in the right place. Of course we
are for Peck.
• It has bencu reported several times

but so far he has not arrived, and lately
º we have not heard whether he has
given up his visit or not. It is very im
portant to the Episcopallanus of East
Carroll for him to come, as the affairs
of the Church are in such a condition I
that his presence only will straighten
I things. There is a descension in the
Church here that is ruining its iulno
once, and it looks like the breach is so
wide that nothing can be done until
the Bishop comes. It is very much to

Winfield and other towns in our state
have started the boom for a cottotn

why can't the town of Providence do
so. Clinton, Boyce and Winfield are
not near the towtns that Provi4lcnce is,
and we have the-advantage over them
of being in the cotton banner growing
parish in the State. We would not
ineed to build a large factory, and one
not to cost over $25,000, the same as
these towns are contemplating erect

citizens of the town and pari-h would
get together and use their energies in
this direction we belteve that they
would be successful.
