The St. Louis Globe-Democrat

dangerous of two scoundrels.—Tele

Down on Cotton Futures.
The United States Supreme court
has finally declared future contracts
in cotton illegal. In this case a plea
of “wager” was set up, the defendant
declaring the contract was made by
patting up a margin, mid that it did
not involve the purchase or delivery
of actual cotton. Tho court held that
it was understood that any settlement
in respect to such purchases should be
exclusively upon the basis of one
party paying to the other only “llic
difference between the contract price
and the market ptice of said cotton
futures.” The court, in rendering its

The confederate veterans seem to
think it the best month in the year
for their reunions, and they are mak

One tiling strikes all the visitors at
these reunions—the youth and vital
ity of our veterans. Many of them
are barelv on the edge of forty. They
were schoolboys when they rode with
Forrest or marched with* Hood, and
art; still young men. The older ones,
too, are alert and full of energy.
It is impossible to look around upon
these men without recognizing the
fact that they are still at the front—
they arc in the van of Southern prog
ress—building our cities and railroads
—pushing our great enterprises.
They arc no laggards when there is
work to do, and their clear heads arc
busy in our councils.
These war-worn veterans—God
bless them! —arc the flower of the
new south, just as they were the flow
er of the old south. The men who
were the best soldiers are our best
citizens. The men who were the most
daring in winning the victories of fhe
war arc the most enterprising in win
ning the victories of peace. The old
confederates will do to count on at all
times and under all circumstances.—

Columbus, July .10.—Mr, John L

from Quincy, having completed the
survey of the proposed road from
Richmond to that city on Saturday
The other survey is from Tallahas
see to Dawson, llic latter town aud
Iiichlaiul being on the line of the
Columbus Southern. The distance
from Columbus to Quincy is about
154 miles, and though no.decision ns
to which route will lie taken lias as
yet been arrived at, I am inclined to
think the Richlnnd-Quiuey route will
lie selected. The country through
which this survey passes is riclt aud
very productive. Tho new road will

This assurauce satisfied Norris, and

It is knowii now that Gov. Jackson
would not issue a warrant for Kil-
rain's arrest without au indictment
brought' by the grand jury against
Kilrain. When that is done the
governor will no longer hesitate.
