The fire alarm was turned in about 11 :30 Thursday night, when smoke was discovered rising from the frame building on Kentucky street which is used by Gray & Rice as a glove factory. The fire was found to be in a pile of waste cloth, and was doubtless discovered just in timr to avert a bad fire. Mr. Gray was in the building about 11 o'clock and thinks when he struck a match that part of it must have flew off into the pile of waste. Robt.

The defeat of the national Democratic ticket has not weakened the faith of the Hon. John Sharp Williams, minority lender in the house of representatives, in the virility of Democratic principles nor banished from his bosom the hope of tlicif ultimate triumph, llcforc leaving here Thursday night Mr. Williams said, in refutation of the pessimistic suggvtlon thai the defeat of Rryan and Kern meant the disintegra' tion of the Democratic party, that Democratic principles, would not perish ns long ns the nation's institutions continued, and not until their destruction would Democracy lose its virility. "While it is true," continued Mr. Williams, "that the Democratic party has not been in control of the national government for twelve years, it has rendered the country invaluabh) service in checking nnd holding back the Republican party in It tendencies to dangerous legislative excesses." RATES MAY BE BOOSTED. Hallway Presidonta Hold Secret Meeting in New York. New York. A secret conference was held Thursday by about a dozen prominent railroad presidents. It was understood that they discussed an advance of freight rates. One of the presidents who attended the conference said that there would bo a general ndvonco in freight rntes very shortly. It Is projiosed to put them up about 10 per cent. This action is defended on the ground that the railroads are unable to sell securities to raise money for needed improvements The advance of 10 ier cent. Is expected to yield about $200,000,000, and this money will lie expended for Improvements. The advance of rates is being bitterly opposed by associations of manufacturers throughout the country, and the reported action of the conference wijl stir up the freight rale dispute once mere.

They have made the people many promises which we hope they will fulfill and which politically they have every opportunity to make good.

In county matters, the winners have passed under the wire; the crowd in the primary grand-stan- d has dispersed. The man who bet a wheel-barroride has pud the debt. It is time now that all lay down their arms, and support the men we selected through the primary. The Courier is a Democratic paper run by Democratic men and we it fs our duty and yours, Mr. Democrat to support the men nominated last week. There are independent candidates who are clean men and gentlemen whom the nominees will have to run against. We like them all, because we have no reason to do otherwise, and because they are our neighbors and friends ; still, we believed' it was to the interest of the Democratic party to go into the We voted in it and will primary. support the winners. Our policy was, and is, to give eyery man a square deal. We have done no "knifing;" and tried to influence none in their choice of men, further than supporting our first love Democracy. Some folks have looked askance because we went through the campaign without insulting the Republican voter without giving some of the county the worst of it, and incidently laying up a stock of future unpleasantness for ourselves. Frankly, that was our business. We were under obligations to no man, or set of men, in the campaign ; nor are they indebted to us for any thing winners or losers. There were matters, of a personal nature that we could have exploited during the days of which would have created a greater demand for the Courier would have hurt on and helped another but we refrained from robbing Peter g to pay Paul and then Paul.

Young Cooper was wounded in the shoulder by a bullet from Carmack's revolver. His condition is not seri ous Carmack was wounded three times, in the neck, breast and left shoulder, Col. Duncan . Cooper, father of the young man, was with his son during the affray, but did not fire a shot. It is said he stood by with a pistol in his hand. The direct cause of the killing is a recent series of editorials in the Tennesseean, a daily paper of which Carmack became editor after his defeat for the nomination for governor. The editorials in question have been vigorous in their comment on Col. Cooper and his alleged connection with what Carmack termed "The Democratic Machine" and its meth ods. Col. Cooper, who is well known in business, newspaper and political circles in Tennessee and this state. had, it is said, notified Carmack that the references to him must cease. Another such editorial appeared Monday morning. The men fought at close quarters and there were but few witnesses.

Allen Leftwich, another member of company E, was shot through the arm by the same bullet. Sergt. Rutledge was chatting with a number of comrades when the gun Private Clark was cleaning was accidentally discharged, causing his death. Private Clark thought at first that the only damage done was a hole torn in the tent. When he looked outside of the tent a most heartrending scene met his gaze. Sergt. Rutledge was lying, on the ground gasping out his dying breath. Leftwich holding his arm was assisting the other boys who were doing all in their power to aid their Everything possifallen comrade. ble was done for the dying man, but, all efforts proved futile. His body was immediately prepared for burial. The verdict of accidental killing completely exonerated Clark. He is a thorough soldier and a favorite with his officers and comrades.

A recent ruliog of the war department of Interest to the members of the National Guard, will have the effect of barring new recruits from attending state camp ar regular army maneuvers at Jhe expense of the national government. The war department has issued an order that no money shall be paid on this account to guardsmen who have not been enlisted for a period of six months. The ruling applies to the national guard all over the country. In the past it has been the rule to fill up a company's roster to the limit. In the two or three weeks prior to the opening of an engagement, or the regular maneuvers. From now on, all of those who participate in these events at the expense of the government must be drilled at least four or six months. The war department holds that often men enlist simply fcr the purpose of attending these functions and then drop completely out of the state militia.

On the subject of the Democratic $6,000 Blaze Monday. Fire broke out on the second floor Uyron VVIIIUmi. party's defeat, W. J. Bryan has this of Ellison Bros. Department Store to say i at 1 o'clock Monday mornlne, and "Ws made our fight upon a plat for a time promised to tie one of the form which embodied what we be most destructive ever knowr.here, lieved to be good for the American people, but it Is for the people then selves to decide what laws they desire and what methods cf government they perfer. "I have faith that the publicity which we asked for will yet commend itself to the American people ; that the election of Senators by the people will be secured ; that the of trusts will arouse an opposition that will result in the elimination of the principle of private monopoly. "I am confident that the people will see the necessity for the labor legislitlon and the tariff reduction which our platform demanded. I am confident, too, that the educational work done In this campaign will result In securing greater protection to bank depositors. "The above are the most prominent reforms for which we labored, and I believe that these reforms will yet come, together with more effective regulation of railroads and Independence for the Fillipinos. "I desire to commend the work of our National Committee. I am entirely tatisfied with Mr. Mack as the chairman and with the members of the committee. I do not see what they could have done more than they did, and as for myself, I put forth every effort in my power to secure victory for our cause. "The nomination came from the hands of the voters. I have obeyed their command and have led as best I could. Words will not express my pratitude for the devotion which has been shown by millions of Democrats during the last twelve years. "Neither am I adequately to express my appreciation for the kind words which have been spoken since the election. If 1 could regard the defeat as purely a personal one, I would consider it a blessing rather than a misfortune, for I am relieved of the burdens and responsibilities of an office that is attractive only in proportion as it gives an opportunity to render a larger public service. "But I shall serve as willingly in a private capacity as in a public one. God does not require great things of us. He only requires that we im prove the opportunities that are presented, and I shall be glad to improve the opportunities for service presented by private life. "In this hour of national defeat I find some consolation in the cordial support given by my neighbors, by the citizens of Lincoln and by the people of the State of Nebraska. With a Democratic Governor and a Democratic Legislature we shall be able to put into practice so mu:h of the Denver platform as relates to State legislation, and I trust that our State will set an example that will be an influence for good in the nation." Again we say it would be move to organize a local fire com as the flames were well uuder way before It was discovered. By the time the hoses were coupled up, the blaze was going out through the roof and out at the rear windows, and located as this building is, In the center of a row of business houses, it looked like the whole block would go. Three streams of water were soon pouring through the windows, while a hundred men and boys carried goods to the street. After about 30 minutes hard work, the had the flames under control. It was ex- -, ceptionally good work in view of the fact that we have no organization whatever for systematic Had it not been, too, for a good water .pressure, t h e whole block would have been In ashes now. As It is the damage is slight compared with what it might have been. Elluon Bros, bear the brunt of the loss. Their stock was damaged principally by water, to the .extent ot something like $5,000. In the grocery department, located directly beneath the fire, torrents of water poured, which ruined much of the stock. T. A. Ledford, owner of the building, estimates the damage to the building at about $1,000. The origin of the fire Is a mystery. It seems to have started in the middle room (there being two partitions on the second floor making three rooms) , which was used by Ellison Bros, as a reserve stock room. The stock on the second floor consisted largely of stoves and small hardware.

Mississippi county could be made of Missouri if our people could only realize the vast increase in value on all improvements that are under consideration in our county. The ditches now completed, those under construction and those that are being considered will put into cultivation thousands of acres of land that is now idle, and then it will greatly increase the sanitary condition that is feared by many outside of this section who refuse to locate here on that account. We also ,need good roads and bridges, a better drainage system and well kept farms.

Charleston Courier. the garden spot Mark the young man who is coarse and disrespectful to his mother. No roseate pathway can be hers who shall sustain to him the relation of wife. Not the happiest will be the lot of those who shall come to be his children. Not to be envied is the neighborhood, even, in which he must be reckoned as a citizen. It does not matter what the mental status of that mother is, how old, how bent, how decrepit, the man to whom she is mother owes to her gentleness, kindness, tenderness and consideration. Did she fall back and did the children with superior advantages pass her in the race? But think of her toil and trials, her devotion and denial, her mind and her years that she gave, that her children might derive the benefit. Think of her sacrifice no wonder if she fell behind, with heart in her home, in the buds that were hers. There is no rank, no station, no con dition that may exempt a manly man from a kind regard for a mother. In this country, the grandest on earth in most respects, we are not sufficiently instructed in the art of manners. We are rather pmff, sometimes and unapproachable. Manners do not make the man, as the proverb says, but manners make the man much more agreeable. A CO TO WORK. Young man, go to work ! There is no time to be idle now. You must carve out your own way if it is ever successfully must carved. You carve out your own way thru energy perseverance and pluck. Labor is honorable, and the ignoble are those who will not work. Get you a home. Fence a field and plow it and plant it, and gather around you the com forts of home. And when you have made a character for energy and thrift, ask some young lady to share your home with you. We would say to every young lady, mark these men who are lounging around attempting to live by their wits, or on the Merest of their debts; and when they ask you to share the lot of an aimless life, pass them on, for you cannot afford to marry a man withbut prosperity or business habits, unless you wish to sell yourself for a mess of pottage. Again we vould reiterate, young man, go to work. While ten men watch for chances, one man makes a chance. While ten men wait for something to turn up, one succeeds and is called a man of luck, the favorite of fortune. Luck and fortune is the result of honest endeavor, work and toil, and if you would succeed, go to work.
