We are authorized ti announce
as a candidate for .Inst ice of the Peace

We ere authorized to announce

Judge Parker.
Judge Parker, who is at present
the most prominent candidate for
the Democratic nomination for
the presidency, continues to pre
serve his sphinx like silence and
cannot be induced to say anything
or express an opinion regarding the
great problen-s that will play an im
portant part in the coining national
campaign. We confess that we
have ail along felt inclined to favor
the candidacy of the Judge for the
reason his nomination might patch
up the factional differences in the
party and make Democratic success
probable, but this studied and abso
lute refusal to give the public an
I idea of Ins pustion oil UvlQ v issues
I makes us extremely tired. Judge
Parker is no block bead and he ccr.
tainly has opltlioUi on these ques
tions. Why should he remain
silcnt'lhi n, mil USS he is simply play
ing a deep game which will permit
lii:n to run on any old kind oi plat
i oi in. The Democratic party does
not want a dummy for 1U standard
bearer, it wants a man with opin
ions on nublic Questions and the
, - - m
coitrsge to cx ress them, u i amar
is to be the candidate let him speak
lout. The rank and file of the
Democratic parly lias a just right to
know Something ibout litis man
they aie asked to support.
Another Case of Speed Mainess.
After the frightful experience of
the Missouri it is probable that the
headlong raos foi rapidity lf tire
iii our navy will be moderated. For
years comparisons have been made
between the numbers of rounds fired
b) British and American .-hips in a
given lumber of minutes, much lo
the disadvantage of the American
batteries. Naturally our gunners
have smart d under the reflection
upon the quality Oi their weapons
or their own alertness, and they
have made some world's records in
quick tiring with heavy units.
it appears now that ihe pace has
been too hot for safety. The guns
have been reloaded without waiting
lor litem lo be properly clean d ami
coled. Of course there Is no dan
ger with the smaller guns which
use metal cartridrecases, but the
larger ones, in which the powder is
rammed behind the shells in canvas
baos, offer every chance for an ex
plosion. In view of the facts that the only
shots that count aie those thai hit,
and that '.here are likely to be quite
as maiiv hits out of onr shots tired
in three minutes as out of six fired
in the same time, it i probable that
for some lime to come more atten
tion will be paid to accuracy ami
safely in handling the twelve-inch
t!iins of our battleships llian to ex
cessive speed . New York World.

The Democratic State Convention.
Jackson, April 85- The State
Democratic executive committee
inei here today and fixed th.i date
for holding the state convention for
Wednesday, June 15, 1904, at JacK
son. This will be the iirt state
convention held under the new
primary election law, and ihe pro-
ceedure prescribed for the selection
of delegates is entirely new.
This convention is lo select dele
gales to the national Democratic
convention, a new State Democratic
executive committee and to nomi
nate Democratic presidential elect
ors. Chairman C. C. Miller of the
committee called it to order at 11
o'clock in the Senate Chamber.
Only five members were present,
but all the others were represented
by proxies. Those present besides
the chairman were: Dr. O. B.
Quinu of McComb, Judge D. M.
Miller of Hazelhursl, T. R. Max
well of Hernando and C. L. S'veley
of Oxford. There was nomiim
before. th-j committee but the mailer
of fixing the date of the convention
and a resolution naming June id
was unanimously adopted. Chair
man Miller then gave out the for
mal call for the convention.
Section 3 of the law of March 9,
1904, regulates the manlier in which
county conventions are to be held
and the beat meetings, etc. It is
as follows:
'The State executive committee
shall consist of three members from
each congressional district, to be
chosen by the delegates from the
different congressional districts,
each district acting separately, and
shall hold four years, and until
their successors are chottO. A
state convention shall be held by
each political parly lu this stale in
the year 1904. and every four years
thereafter, to selei t a stale executive
committee, to ippoiut delegates to
the national convention .uid lo
nominate presidential electors.
"Each county shall be entitled in
the stale convention to a number of
votes equal to double its vote in the
ii ,r u . , .,,.,! m,
House of Representatives.
X lit I
delegates are to be selected by
county delegate conventions, to be
held in each county. Deb-gates
shall be apportioned equally among
the supervisors' districts of each
county, or each precinct in the
county shall be given representation
in the county delegation convention
in proportion to the votes cast at
the proceeding presidential election
for its party candidate.
"The1 county executive committee
shall designate a date and a number
of delegates to be elected, giving at
least ten d tys notice tor the pre
cinct election, on which date the
electors of such prcciuc.l shall meet
at ten o'clock a. in., al the usual

of each county shall choose a county

Legislative Sin of Ommission.
A legislative blunder which is
going to operate against the en
forcement of the ouster laws of the
state has been brought lo light by
the refusal of the state treasurer lo
cash warrants drawn on the oyster
commission. The "B weis" law
provides that all revenues derived
in ler that act shall go into ihe slate
treasury and It takes an appropria
tion to get the money needed for
expense of its operation. The
legislature adjourned does not con
vene again for nearly two years and
if the irspcclors ami others employ
ed by ihe oyster commission feel
that they need money f ir their ser
vices they will have lo wait two
years lo get it from the state. The
law makes it obligafory on (fte
legislature to make an appropri
ti jii for carrying out its provisions
every two years there is no su ill
thing in this slate as a perpetual
appropriation so the salaries of
these men and the expense for
planting oyster shells are sure to be
paid in the process ol lime, but the
failuae of the legislature to make
the appropi iation will make it nec
essary for those employed by the
commission t 1 either wait Iwo years
lor their money or to hy potliecate
their warrants al a lo-s of 8 or 10

The Coming 0." Northern Fancers.
A correspondent of the New York
Evening Post, writes from Jackson,
Miss., telling of the invasion of ihe
south by industrious northern farm
ers seeking homes ill the agricul
tural districts, and nearly all of
A'hom are the heads of families.
Plie correspondent says this move
ment began wiui inu estauiisnmein
of the health resorts along the
ulh Atlantic and Gulf coasts,
and was the result of the eff o ts ol
far sighted northern capitalists who
in tiie early S- s coming south to
spend tue winter were atiracttd by
the Vast stretches of uncultivated
and finely t'mbered lands and pur
chased large tracts ol it feeling con
fident that the fertility of 11 and the
ielightful climate would in lime
bring a most desirable and thrifty
population from the northern slate-.
The farmers from the north who
have settled Ml these Ianos have
prospered so well that thi y now
have comfortable homes, and the
Post's correspondent thinks that
the railroads, refrigerator cars ami
early straw bernes and asparagus
have done more to render ihe bloody
shirt innocuous than the Spanish-
iVmeriean war ilself."
The Water bury, Conn., Ameri
can sees the good that will result
from this class of immigration into
the south and says: "We do not
know of any more encouraging sign
than this quiet business movement
whijh is drawing soulh-vird just
the right kind of northern settlers,
because of the character of the set
llers, the character of their business
and ihe places where they settle out
111 the open country. The real value
of such a movement as this is that
it is unobseured by any political
sentiment. It must therefore tur-
Iher the mutual understanding and
harmony of the to sections, be
cause it appeals lo the one great
motive that in this particular age
brings rival interests together thi
motive of mutual advantage."
N one is belter pleased with the
sncce-s of ihe northern sc. tiers in
the smith than the southern people
themselves, because they know lhai
it means much for iheir section,
MM they desire lht it should bt.
generally knoA 11 that the northern
farmers are p rospering among ihem
cause this k no a ledge will grvMlf
ii.creifc me li'e 01 immigration.
The truth is that when a northern
farmer couu s south to seek cheaper
and more fertile laud as' well as
a more congenial climate he feels at
hame, because the south today 'is
the only purely American section of
the country by reason of the fast
that the addition to its population
of foreign peoples is so small as not
to be noticeable. In commenting
on this fact the Charleston News and
Courier say-: "It is not surprising
"That what the correspondent of the
Evening Post calls 'native Ameri
cans' should find rtnong the mnjh
misrepresented and misunderstood
white people of this part of the
country precisely the same sort of
people as themselves. We do not
fear any political disturbances in
the south because of the settlement
in this sejtiou of northern colonies
composed of such people. We do
not care what their politics is, and
how much they m?y have been mis
taken iu their previous judgments
of the south and its civilization; we
know thai they arc asstmilaole, and
that they will be moved in all their
aspirations and conduct by precisely
the same spirit in essential things
as has actuated always the white
people of the south. N O. Slates.
