AT. -BRIGHTLY dawned the day on
--_ last Saturday, the 1st of November
-it was All Saints Day. The ce
irdays rulean skies, the bright and balmy
sunshine, tempered by gentle ze
. r phyrs, was so mild and genial-just
t :o such a day as we of the Sunny
__7i South are often blessed with at
V. 4 this period of the year. Surely it
* must have rivaled in brightness and
3W3. glowing autumnal tints, any that
p e'er dawned on far away .boasted
et of Italia. The weather then was sim
tnic- ply all that could be desired, as
tho' created for the occasion there
on to be commemorated. Two
1 Mr. Masses wore celebrated at the Cath
mar- olic Church in Town, while at
.n on Mount Olivet Chapel in Pineville, I
nony service was held and the lHoly Eu
charist celebrated by the Rector of t
that St. James Episcopal church. Many c
the devotees attended each throughout I
Bar- the (lay till dewy eve, till Western t
how shadows o'er cast tdhe landscape,
hich bent on pious intent, flocked to the
different cemeteries and there offer
ed affection's sacred tribute on the
One silent tombs of the loved and the
13k lost. Each and all these offerings, t
o- highly appropriate, many of the
1de esigns of cross heart and wreath, a
Irs. .were ornate and rarely beautiful.
riAfter.making an offering and drop- ti
ping the silent tear of affectionate
was memory, where most the heart was
fled engaged, we wended our way thro'
rhe the quiet city of the dead and wit
Se- nessed the devotion of many others,
;er, who had come on a similar holy
raf- mission. Each of the different cem- o
ilt, eteries were visited, Episcopal, Me
eil. thodist and Catholic, and. in each m
and all th~e .toching tale was re
le- leated. Though party strife may
in exist, tho' private animosities may L
;ial at times jar the purer current of our L
tsocial relations, may the beautiful di
r custom as we witnessed it on this O
ito occasion ever prevail, for surely it jU
ais tends to smooth the rough aspenri
ties of our natures. Let us then es
to ever dehlght to payour heart's hom- pr
be age to the memories of those who of
nd through life, we cherished >o dearly, we
g and from whom in death we hope ju
rs not to be separated.

N er that corrupt, that rule and ruin Mid
- party, that has for so long fattened Goo
on the spoils of office-absolutely
wrenched from the hard earnings of ]7
a too generous people. The Dem
I ocratic candidates for President and
SVice-President were fairly elected
,in 1876. They were robbed and
cheated of the fruits of their victory L
by the then all-powerful and cor- Wit
rupt Republican party. In 1880 Blac
their victory was .stolen by the aret
overwhelming use of money, by consi
bribery and the most brazen fraud
and violence. Now again is this
same party arraigned at the bar of
public justice, to be tried for high
crimes and misdemeanors in the In
administration of the geaneral gov- menti
ernment, as well as its base, venal hereb
and perjured standard-bearer, Jas. sent t
G. Blaine. Each have been guilty, for tl
though his the most glaring, inas- Henr
much as it includes the acquisition
of private gain to himself. From a
long tenure of office the Republi- .
ean party has been:able to conceal d
most of its rascalities. It is only this ol
on b turning them out and examining
ber the figures can its extent be arriv
ce- ed at. This is their great source
ny of terror. To retain basely prosti.
me- tuted power they have hitherto
1at stopped at "nothing, nor will they in
ny order to retain it. The very
at character of these chosen standard
it bearers should satisfy all of the
id degraded condition' of the party it
at self. For President the arrogant,

as President the ignorant, imbecile
e- and Southern hater, John A. Lo

b- his increasing sectional hatred, acts
at so as to confirm the opinion that he
o, thinks the civil war, past twenty

By this just and manly verdict
Judge Pardee has won the respect
and admiration of all good citizens
of Louisiana. The contrast be
tween Judge Pardee and the infa

tween virtue and vice. He has
made for himself a name that will
be imperishable in the annals of
Louisiana politics, and reflected
dignity and credit upon the Court
over which he presides. By this
judgmebt an infamous and coward

promptly strangled by the firmness
