Sheriff a. J. My Lindoo of Shelby county tenn., arrived Here yesterday afternoon and returned heme this morning with his prisoner j. B Cross. Hie Memphis forger whom Deputy Blair arrested at Beeville the other Day. Cross himself appeared to be anxious to return to Memphis to see his wife a children stand his Pun is meet which will Likely prove very severe. The history of Cross who is yet a Young Man is the same sad tale that has been so often told concerning Many a Young Man. It seems that the Success which he was obtaining in his flashiest made him careless of his responsibility for he soon fell to gambling and various excesses until to cover up the losses sustained through his evil associations he resorted to forgery forging the name of a. W. Parris a wealthy relative of his wife. Fili ally Cross Quot was detected in his nefarious work and he sudden a left tile Community creating quite a Little sensation. It was then discovered that he had secured during his reckless living nearly $25,000 by forgery. Cros was moved to tears at the meeting of sheriff Moli Dou with whom he was Well acquainted and continually inquired Aslo his family and friends being impatient of his return Home As though Memphis would receive the wayward Man with open arms. Or Blair the Deputy who arrested Cross has received the tiny dollars Reward wild More coming to him. A progressive mayor f or Tho Liq it. His dependents talk every Day about the Progress Trade during the present administration myself and friends Haye in vain searched fora ust cause of this Eulogio.

I Tell you sir such Progress is Only appreciated by Tux payer ask we Are who have j o favors Toa Ami who suffer by tile wilful squandering of the Public Money. A. Taxpayer. Tho message. Governor Ross message contain log a Little less than 20.000 words was give to the country yesterday. Had it been an inaugural foreshadowing the future administrative policy of the Sta let More attention might have been devoted to its perusal. As it is it is too Wordy and Windy to receive any general perusal at the hands of the people of the state. A Mon its most important items Are these facts. Every Public claim upon the Treasury is paid Aud the state has $772 by Cash. The assessed valuation of the state is $782 121 833 yielding at 20 cents tax $1 564 243. Receipts for year ending wept. I.

The Road Law is touched upon bul there Are no practical suggestions or in fast suggestions of Auy kind As to what it would be Wise for the Legisla Ture to attempt in the Way of Road in pavement. On the question of a rail Way commission the message is very conservative endorsing the Regala Tion of railways by commission but cautioning the legislature against any injudicious attempts at control tile statistics of the message Are valuable. A Republican Chance. Topeka kau., Jan. 16.�?adoption of the new Rule by Alliance members of the legislature whereby no senatorial candidate will be considered As caucus nominees until 83 legislators or joint ballot majority unite on him has increased restored Confidence of Republican leaders and greatly improved Ingalls chances for re election. It is now believed that jealousies existing among senatorial aspirants before the Peoples party will prevent any of them from receiving a majority and a dead lock will ensue which will probably re 3ult in the election of a Republican Uless caucus Rule is broken.
