In his inaugural address delivered last
Tuesday before a joint session of the
Mississippi Legislature, Governor James
Vardaman declared that the growing
tendency of the negro to commit crimi
nal assaults on white women is nothing
more or less than the manifestations of
the racial desire for social equality. In
strong terms ho declared that education
is the curso of the negro race, and urged
an amendment to the state constitution
that will place the distribution of the
common school funds entirely within
the power of the Legislature. Continu
ing his discussion of the negro question,
Governor Vardaman said :

a successor would be chosen from the

power. It was predicted some time ago
as soon as it was known that the au
thorities in Washington would not rein
state Mr. Thomson, that Al Roberts
would be named as bis successor. That
D. L. Martin statement was based on the fact that
Roberts had been identified with the
Republican party and chosen by United
States Marshal Matthews as a deputy
until some other good position was open
and that he would bo named for the va
cancy in the LaGrande office as soon as
the opening occurred. A. A. Roberts
was appointed United States Deputy
Marshal at the time Marshal Matthews
assumed office. He had held that posi
tion up to the time of the selection of Mr
Matthews as United States Mashal, and
upon the latter's appoiitment bo was
named as a deputy. Just when ho will
assume office is not known, aa the com
mission has not as yet reached here, but
it is expected that as soon as it does he
will file his bond and take charge of the
office as Receiver.)
New York, Jan. 20 It is reported here, says a
Herald dispatch from St. Thomas, D. W. I., that the
Domincan Minister of Foreign Affairs, accompanied by
a delegate, has left Santo Domingo ior Washington to
attempt to make arrangements with the Uuited States
to establish a protectorate over the Republic of Santo
Vigorous bonbardment of the capital continues by
the forces of General J iminez. Many refugees, in

French steamer from Port au Prince, Hayti.
New York, Jan. 20 Seven hundred government
soldiers are on the march to Santiago, the rebel strong
hold, says a Herald dispatch from Puerto Plata, Santo
Domingo. It is believed this battle will be the most
important of the Jaminez revolution. The rebels are
firmly intrenched in their capital, and it is presumed
they will make a desperate resistance.
Details of the recapture of Puerto Plata a few
days ago by the government forces show, according to
the Herald's correspondent, that the commander of an
American war vessel in the harbor practically managed
the battle, and that a fighting zone demarked by the
commanders of the United States and British warships
was accepted by the contending forces. President
Morale's troops promptly respected the order to cease
firing, although General Jiminez, forces, when routed,
ran through the streets and continued to fire in all
An American force, composed of eight men, with
the Stars and Stripes, went to the firing line and de
manded a suspension of hostilities. The commander
of the United States warships then landed a force of
100 men and arranged for the surrender of the fort.
The Americans disarmed the Jiminez forces, and later
turned the fort to General Cespedes, in command of
the government troops.

ter of congratulations to tho manufac
turera of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
as follows: "Sixteen years ago when
our first child was a baby ho was sub
ject to croupy spells and wo would bo
very uneasy about him. We began by
using Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in
1887, and finding it such a reliable
remedy for colds and croup, wo have
never been without it in the house since
that time. Wo have five children and
and have given it to all of them with
good results. - One good feature of this
remedy is that it ib not disagreeable to
take and our babies really like it. An
other is that it is not dangerous, and
there is no risk from giving an overdose
I congratulate you upon the success of
vour remedy." For sale by A. C. Mare

East Umpqua has so long been unrep
resented, that tho people of the county
really do not know that in this small
bailiwick, bounded on the west by
Mount Scott, and extending eastwardly
to Crater lake, that people existed, and
some, even were living, ana idm 11 is a
portion of the land of the free, and the
incubator of the timber cruiser.
In the past two years, this has been
one of the storm centers of the timber
craze. The cruiser has been much in evi
dence, convoying female ladies and di
vers male men to homesteads upon the
virgin wilds of fir timber and canias
meadows, where they can find homes
and quietude, and be entertained by the
soft nurrinc of Ute festive wildcat, tho
joyous howl of the wolf, and the friend
ly snarl of the innocent cougar, all for the
sum of $100 per lady or gentleman victim.
Another attraction lies in the many
rumors that secretary hhcucock pro
poses to increase the Forest Reserves,
and that anyone locating within the
mits of proposed increase, must take
chances of an order to vacate, and a
journey on snow shoes to the McClallcn
House, thence by rail to homes in ash-
ington, Minnesota, and divers other for
eign lands, and be Eafely at their own

"The startling facts revealed by the
census show that thosu who can read i
and writo are mora criminal than the .
illiterates, which is true of no other ele-
ment of our population. I am advised j
that the minimum illiteracy among tbe j
negroes is found in New England, where '
it is 21.4 per cent. Tno maximum is i
found in the black belt, Louisiana, Miee-,
issippi and South Carolina, where it ia
G5.T per cent ; and yet the negro in New !
England is four and one-half times more I
criminal, hundred for hundred, than he
is in the black belt.
"The better da of negroes is not re
sponsible for this terrible condition, nor
for the criminal tendency of their race.
Nor do I wish to be understood as cen
suring them for it. I am not censuring
anybody, nor am I inspired by ill-will
for the negro ; but I am simply calling
attention to a most unfortunate and un
ondurable condition of affairs. What
shall be done about it?
"My own idea is that the character of
the education for the nero ought to ba
changed. If, after years of earn-ist effort
and the expenditure of fabulous sums
of money to educate his head, we have
only succeeded in making a criminal out
of him, wisdom could snggest that we
make another expe.iinent and sec if we
cannot improve him by educating his
hand and his heart. There must be a
moral substratum upon which to build,
or you cannot make him a desirable citizen."
