comiilhetwVly cloedi by dr. Bollneyv
withdrlawing leaving his friends
coillctely at sea. Mr. Montgoim

After taking the chair, MIr.
M wntgmiery stated. in answer to a
- uestion, that in the absence ,of
specific instructions, lie would, if
the appointments were left to him,
appoint the delegates to the IRus
toen Convention in accordance with
the strength of the four chndidiates
who were before the meeting. This I
1 statement met with hearty approv
'al, and several voices applauded
C Mr. Montgomery as that rare jewel,
an honest man.
In the midst of this love feast
the lightning struck, in th - shaipe
of a set of resolutions rea!cnty Mr.
J. T. McClellan, to the effect, that
e the chairman appoint the delegates
to the convention in proportion to
the strength of the candidates,
naming the candidates as Wells,
King and Lott, omitting Mr. Mnr
doch, and as a clincher, instructing
I the delegation to "vote as a unit."
This was one of the programmes
that (lied young, very young. There
are men in this parish who pro
fess to see, in these resolutions a
flat contradiction to the apparently
_ fair statement of Mr. Montgomery
as to what he would do if the ap
pointment of the delegation was
left to hinm. It is regarded as a
1 little off color that such resolutions
t should even be thought off, as Mr.
Mt urdoch had considerable strength
(which was subsequently shown,)
Sand the unit rule would practically
a close out all the candidates but
one, and the appointment of dele
gates in proportion to the strength
of the candidates is looked upon 1
- by many as a transparent snare,
s and the exact opposite of the fair
" ess so hastily assumed to be in
diciated in Mr. Montgomery's state
r ment of his position. Whether
a justly or not, both Mr. McClellan
e and Mr, Montgomery were credited
with being supporters of Mr.
e Wells, and the resolutions are
looked upon as part of a cut and
dried plan, in in the interest of Mr.
Wells. Cut and dried plans are
Sgenerally admnitted to be perfectly 1
legitimate, as is caucusing.
and wire pulling, but political fair
s nessI - who ever saw any of the
S genuine article ?
Mr. McClellan introduced, later, I
another resolutiou, which proposed
' balloting for candidates, and drop
1 ping the candidate receiving tihe
Slowest number of votes, until one
Scandidate received a majority of
tile votes cast. There was not
much aiparent lightning about
Sthis, but it had the ef- I
effect of knocking Mr. Wells higher 1
than Gilderoy's kite. It was'a
uort of boomerang resolution, and
r it is not probable that it was in-1
Stended to act as it did, as it landed
Gen. King on top. Life is short
Sgentlemen, and we can't always be
struggling. Take a breathing spell
and try it again latter. Here's to

a THE TOURNAMENT.
S Omega was the centre of attrac
tion 'lThursday. The tournament
e given there by the Omega boys
proved to be a drawing card. Al
though half past 3 o'clock p.m. was
the hour set for the tilting, the
e crowd began to gather several hours
y befo>re. The Omega young ladies
despoiled themselves of ribbons to
deck the bridles of the Knights,
the visiting Knights of Tallulah_,
C being remarkably well treated in
that respect. The riding took place
about a mile above Omega in a
cottonwood grove outside of the
levee, and ten Knights entered the
lists. Mr. W. II. Harvey with his
e usual grace acted as ( ran d Marshal.
e The following is the score :
Knitght of the (reseent, Barnett

The final result being that Ahldie
Brooks obtained first prize, Naland
Harvey second, Tom Nhland third, and
iarnott Stone fourth. Barnett Stone's
horse got a nail in his foot the night
I hefore the tuurnament, and his first
ride was made without the conhdience
5 nocesary to success, as is shown Ihv
his getting only one ring, his second
amnd third tilts resultin1g in three rings
* each. .Most of the Kmghts were handl
somelv dressed, in etstun.e. The
4neen'nfLoveandI Beauty as well as
the Maids of Honor were not chosen
until evening, at the hall.
j The ball was announced for half past
seven o'clock, but, as the riding took
longer than was anticipated, those
living at a ilistance were somewhat
later than that hour in arriving. ,mnee
little dancing was indulged in hefore
the Royal Set took the loor. Master
Addle Brooks having secured first prize
selected as Queen Miss Nannie Rhodes
of East Carroll, Master Noland Harvey
chose for first Maid of Honor, Mis.
Jessie Yerger of Millikens Bend.
Master Tom Noland seletted Miss Abbie
Yerger fair second Maid, and Master
Barnet Stome displayrd his good judg-,
maent in choosing Miss Bessie Rhodes, 0
a sister of the Queen. After the Royal '
set general dancing was indulel'in.,
The Tallulah Band furnished the music. 1
The toilets of the laidies were worthy i
of the occasion, you will excuse doi

Did He Swear at the President
A story is in circulation here that
soon after the rejection of Matthews
Sen tor Harris, of Tennessee, went
up to see the President about an
appointment in his State which
some of his constituents were in
terested in. He stated his case,
and the President replied: "Well,
it seems to me that you have a
good deal of assurance to come hole
asking for an appointment when
you voted against my man
Matthews." The Senator got hot
in a second.' 'i'll have you know,
Mr. President," he said, "that it is
none of your business what I do or
do not do in the Senate. I am the
mnaster, sir, of ainy own actions
there, as you are here. By G-,
sir, I didn't come here asking any
favors of you on any personal
grounds. The people of the State
of Tennessee, whom I represent,
asked me to do this, and that is
why I camne here. You may do as
you d- please, sir. I want it dis
tinctly understood that what I do
as a Senator is beyond your juris
diction." And the irate Senator
bounced out. He had voted for
Matthews, but the President had
made him mad, and he did not
choose to make any explanations.
-Washington letter to Baltimore
Three escaped convicts from the
Greenville, Texas, jail were re
captured by jailor Adair. One
made a break for liberty, and Adair
gave a stranger who happened
;along, .his pistol to pursue the
fleeing convict. When the
stranger disappeared, the other
two convicts turned on Adair; one
held, while the other carved him.
His throat was cut, his wrist cut
half off, and his body cut half in
two. His wounds were mortal.
Escaped convicts are dangerous
and won't do to take chances with.
The New York car drivers and
conductors went on a strike again
last week. There is little doubt
that they were being imposed on,
but they forfeited all claims to
sympathy by their after actions.
They assaulted non-union men who
had been employed by the corm
pany, upset cars, threw bricks,
stones, iron bolts and other mis
siues, at the ears, and were gener
ally riotous and disreputable. The
strike is now over.
