Ought to Pay Well, Several papers call attention to he buying up of the cattle of the country for shipping West. and urge Mississippi farmers to read the qnotation of cattle prices before selling. At present prices and with the assurance of their main- tenance, no farmer ought to sell be- yond his surplus. A recently published report says that "even yearlings are worth from $16 to $18 per head--cxtra fine 2(). Three-year-olds $25 to $28, and 5-ycar-olds $i0." These prices ap- ply to North Texas. At anything like tiaese prices there ought to be big profits in cattle raising, especially in the cane bills of Southwest Mississippi, wh'e there is so much suitable land lying idlc.--Clarke County Times. State Pensions, The records of three counties have been received at the auditor's office, showing the number of State pensioners under the new plan. The counties are: liinds. Jefferson and Washington. Washington county has only three pen- sioners in it. as against two for last year. The other two counties however, are probably average counties: that is, the percentage of increase and decrease of the rest of the State will come pretty near tallying witk the change in them. According to a comparison of the num- ber of pensions granted by the boards last year and this year in these two counties, there will be a decrease in the State pensions of about 29 per cent. These are all hounties, and are a pretty fair indication of what the gen- eral returns will be, because the bot- tom counties have a very small number of pensioners. - Tom Garner to Ilang. Tom Garner. the assassin of Scott ('ausey and wife. will hang. The Pike c(nmty jury at Magnolia brought in a verdict of "guilty as charged." There was considerable excitement anti the judge gave orders to the sheriff to allow no demonstration whatever. Gar- ner is now in jail guarded by twelve deputies with shotguns. When the jury returned its verdict there was no visible effect on the prisoner. His wife and children were with him but no scene was created, lie took it as coolly as if he were not remotely concerned in the finding of the jury that sentenced him, unless the Supreme Cour interferes, to f , a clon s (lea th. l'cnsion lleturns. The pension returns from the various counties are coming in very slowly to the auditor's office. Those that have been received, however, all simw a de- crease of about 30 per cent. Lowndes county has 34 this year asagainst 41 for last year; Issaq uena, 1 as against 4, and Benton, 36 as against 51 for 1897. This decrease will increase the per capita of the worthy pensioners. The Weason Mills. Tim Wesson Mills are the first in the State to yield and come up with the amount of back taxes assessed against them. Mr. Adams states that'the own- ers and attorneys for the mills met him in a very fair and satisfactory spirit and had a statement of certain equities which they thought they were entitled to. These he had no hesitation in al- lowing. The total back taxes to be paid by this institution are about $20.- 000. These mills being the largest an the State and having good attorneys, it is plaiu tlmt they had no doubt as to their liability. l'riva te T. It. Rogers Dead. T. 1t Rogers, a private in Company G.

He stabbed the empress with some small, keen weapon, The empress was walking from the hotel to the landing place ofthesteam- er at about 1 o'clock when the an- arcidst suddenly approached aml stabbed her near the heart. The em- press fell, got up again ad was car- ried to the steamer unconscious. The boat started, but seeing that the empress had not recovered conscious- ness the cal)tain returned anti the em- press was carried to the Ilotel Bean- rivage, where she expired. The stretcher upon which the em- press was carried to tim hotel was trustily improvised with oars and sail cloth. Doctors and priests were imme- diately summoned and a telegram wa sent to Emperor Francis Joseph. All efforts to revive her majesty were una- vailing and she expired at 3 o'clock. The medical examination showed that the assassin must have need a keen stileito or snmll triangular file. After striking the blow he ran along the Rue des Alhes, with thc evident intention of entering the Square dcs Alpes, but before reaching it he was seized by two cabmen who had wit- nessed the crime. The 5, handed him over to a boatman and a gendarme, xvho conveyed Mnl to the police sta. ties. Plan for the Funeral. Vienna. Sept. 12.--The plans for the funeral of the 'late ]mpress Elizabeth, who was assassinated by an anarchist Saturday at Geneva. eonteml)late bringing the remains to Vienna next Thursday, a lying-in-state on Friday nd the obsequies of interment on Saturday. Every flag in the city is at half- mast to-day and the theatres, races and olher amusements are suspended nldefinitely. All the archdukes and the Arch- duchess Marie Valerie have arrived at Schoenbrunn. It was reported Satur- day evening that Emperor Francis Joseph had gone to Geneva by a spe- cial train, but this was .an error. At noon yesterday he had not yet left Schoenbrunn. Crown Princess Stephanie, who has been staving, at Darmstadt, has been summoned. Tie Emperor's ]Fortitude. The emperor's fortitude is the topic of universal admiration. He is bear- ing up manfully despite the terrible shock, which, in view of his age, had inspired the gravest apprehension. Al- though at first stunned and then slightly hysterical, he soon regained his self-control and displayed remark- ble calmness. Occasionally, however, completely over-powered by his grief, he inoantd piteously, repeatedly sob- bing the name of the empress. IueoneelVble Hrtlesness, Addressing Prince Von Liechten- stein, chief marshal of the imperial household, he exclaimed last evening: "It is !nconeeivable how a man could lift his hand agninst one who never in her life injured anybody, one who did nothing bnt good." Then he moaned. "Nothin. is spared to me in this world." IIe managed to sleep several hours Saturday night, and sail yesterday morning that he felt comparatively well, diseouraging the attempts of his r ttendauts to display solicitude for his health. A Court Servant Crazed by the News. The shock of the l:ews crazed one of the court servants, who rushed froln the palace to Buryplatz, shrieking: "rherc is the murderer of our em- press?" ])ispatches of condolence are arriv- ing at the palace from all parts of the world, testifying to profound horror and symlmthy. Among them are mes- sages from President McKinley, from Emperor William and from nearly all the European sovereigns. The court will go into mourning for six months. AUSTRIA'S GRIEF. High Court OflciaL Will Accompany th@ Body of the Dead Empress to Vienna. Geneva, Sept. 12.No strangers are nllowed to approach the coffin of the murdered Empress Elizabeth. The body has been embalmed and dressed in white. It is nuderstood that Emperor Fran- cis Joseph will not leave Austria. but will send high court officials to take the body to Vienna. Flowers are ar- riving in profusion. The Dd Empress. The empress of Austria was born December 24, 1837. She was a daugh- ter of Duke Maximilian of Bavaria, and was married to Francis Joseph, emperor of Austria and king of Hun- gary, April 24, 1854. They had three children, the Archduchess Gisola. who is married to Prince l,uitpold of Ba- varia; he Archduke Rudolph, who married la.xincess Stel;hanle of Bel- gium, and who was (seemingly) assas- sinated in 1889 and the Archduchess  who t SECRET SESSIONS. ransaetions Given Away bY Senators atoll Deputies ot the OpposltlonAn Appeal for Funds. Madrid, Sept. 9, via Biarrttz, Sept. 10.The government's severe measure to prevent reports of the secret sessions of the cortes are nullified by the sena tors and deputies of the opposition, who are eager to inform the foreign correspondents as to what goes on. Thursday's session of the chamber ended with Senator Silvela attacking the government and exclaiming, "Ths Sagasta ministry is a corpse and we do not discuss corpses; we bury them." Senor CanaleJas, who is a lieutenant of Polaviejas' new party, urged an in- quiry into the sources of the charges against the army and navy. The debate apparently weakened the government. It is reported that t Thm'sday's cab- inet counsel Senor Sagasta told his col- leagues that they must be prepared for the fall of the cabinet. Gen. Blanco has appealed to the gov- ernment for funds, representing that the situation in Cuba is most distress- ing. Senor Romero Giron, minister for the colonies, has asked the treasury for 100,000,000 pesetas. In reply he re- ceived 30,000,000. The bank of Spain nominally holds 1,000,000,000 pesetas in internal fours, but the sum supplied to the govern- ment on this guarantee is already ex- hausted. FUNERAL AT CAMP WIKOFF.

Ths Sword of Gem Miranda, Taken at Coi regldor Island, Returned by Capt, Dyer of the Raltimore, Manila, Philippine Islands, Sept. 10 --The United States consul here, G. F Williams, in behalf of Capt.

The Only Avallablo Remedy for the Indus- trial Crisis Existing in the lrlt- lsh West Iadlh Kingston, Jamaica, Sept. 10.--The conference of West Indian representa. tines at the island of Barbadoes passed a resolution demanding aid from the British home government as a matter of right, as being the only available remedy for the industrial crisis, and also demanded the adoption of meas- ures either for the exclusion of bounty. fed sugar from the English market or the enforcement of countervailing du. ties. No ultimatum looking to American annexation was adopted, although the question was incidentally discussed as a possible future contingency, to effect Cuban and Porto Rican competition in the American market should Great Britain conclusively render the relie demanded. The question of annexa. ties to Canada was no mentioned, and the Jamaican delegate, iu an interview, declares that while annexation to the United States is improbable, the trans. ferenee of the British West Indian islands to Canada is impracticable, be- sides promising no relief. Grlgsbv'. Rough Blder Chickamauga National MIhtaxy Park, Ga., Sept. 9.--Six troops o! Grigsby's Rough Riders were paid and mustered out of the service to-day, and the men have been leaving the park on every train. It is intended to have the entie eommand mustered out by to-night and Col. Grigsby and 15 of his officers will leave to-night for Chicago. The order for the Nitntn New York to proceed to New York to- morrow has been eountermandel aud ithas been decided to pay tlm linen here. They wi!1 THE PHILIPPINES, United Statee Will Finally Demand Only Manila. Bay Also to Be Controlled--Trade PrlvI. loges Equal to Those Enjoyed by Spain--Texas to be Sent to Dewey--Olympia to Be Orderel llome, VAenINGTON, Sept. ll.--There is rea- son to believe that the navy depart- merit has selected the Texas as the future flagship of the Asiatic statiom I understand that instructions have been given by the department that the ves- sel be fitted as a flagship, the under  standing being that she will replace the protected Olympia, which is to be or- dered to the United States, as soon as her relief arrives on the Asiatic station, The Olympia's cruise expired some months ago, but the breaking ant of the war with Spain necessitated her re- tention in the East aud some hasty re- pairs to her machinery were made at Itong Kent just before the declaration of hostilities. The addition of the Texas to the Asiatic station will make the force in the East a very strong one, especially as there will always be a couple of battleships attached to the Pacific sta- tion, and which can be sent East to re- inforce Rear Admiral Dewey's com- mand whenever an emergency demands such action. So far as can bc learned the Texas will go to the east via the Mediterranian and the Suez canal, and she will not. therefore, start on her voy- age until the treaty of peace has been signed. It is impossible for the United States to augment its force in the East pend- ing the armistice, and it is {'or this rea- son that the battleships Iowa and Oregon are to be sent to Ilonolulu, where they wilt be in compacative easy reach of the Philippines. Acting Sec-. rotary Meiklejohn told me_ t:day that so far as he had been advised by Maj.: Gem Otis. commanding the American force rt Manila. the situation on the island of Luzon did not warrant the press reports published this morning. Ite admitted that hc knew very little about the situation. From another source I learned that Gcn. Otis had not cabled the department mnee last Tues- day, aud his message at that time sim- ply referred to a proclamation issued by Affuinaldo regarding the form of gov- ermnent which he proposcs to estab- lish. The administration, however, through Consul Williams, has been closely ad- vised of every development, and it is in view of this information and in antici- pation of complications that such a strong force is being collected in the tlawaiiau islands, which will be moved to the east as promptly as may be found expedient. While the situation in the Philippines is not encouraging, the president is prcpariug the instructions which will uide the peace commissioners in the demands regarding these islands. As has been stated there is every reason to believe that the commission will at first demand the retention of the entire island of Luzon, but this demand will be reduced to the city and Bay of Ma- nila, it being against the wishes of the president to retain the entire island, and by this act neeessitate the main- tenance of a large standing army in the East. But to effect the return of territory to Spain, *hat government will be com- pelled to givc the United States trade privileges in the Philippines equal to those of any other nation, including herself. Of course in addition to the city and Bay of Manila Spain will be required to cede as much territory as will be necessary to protect them, and military and naval experts will be called upon to give their opinion as to the extent of jurisdiction desirable. Maj.-Gem Merritt is now on his way to Paris, and Commander R. B. Bradford, chief of the bureau of equipment, may also be ordered to proceed to Paris to consult American commissioners there. . OUTBREAK AT MANILA. Becent Occurrences Have Caused Appro- hen.Ion, and Troop Are Kept Under Arms In Barracks. MANILA via Paris, Sept, ll.--Irrita- lion, induced by the aggressive attitude f certain irresponsible native leaders acting in defiance to Aguinaldo's orders, not to mention the secret efforts of the ecclesiastical party to promote disturb- ances with the intention of leading the revolutionary government to certain ruin, has become so serious that troops are now kept in barracks under arms, ready for action at a moment's notice. The "dictator" made a triumphal en- try into Malols Saturday, formally tak- ing possession of thc new capital in the Saopaloc district. Friday night the insurgent baud of Juan Blanco created considerable dis- turbanee by attempting to disarm re- cruits considered too youthful to bear arms. One captain was mortally wounded. Juan Blanco is a man who deserts from one party to another as occasion serves. Many Lost In Storm.
