-MANY suffering people drag them
selves about with failing strength,
feeling tdat they are steadily sinking
into the grave, when by using Parker's
Tonic they would find a cure com.
mencing wilh the first dose, and vital
ity and strength surely coming back
to them.
-BRO. Puckette is out in the fol
lowing apology, which we accept:
"The press of the Fourth Congress
ional district seems to think the Times
is premature in stirring up the politi
cal lions with appetite for congress
ional honors. It was sonly a playful
diversion - nothing more; merely a
journalistic freak or fancy-something
all good editors indulge in-when the
brain will not furnish better material."
-WE are greatly pleased at the
action of the democrats of Caddo in
nominating for the legislature that ri
sing young lawyer, E. H. Randolph,
Esq., to fill the vacancy occasioned
by the resignation of Judge Wm. A.
Seay, lately appointed Minister to Bo
livia. The Shreveporters will never
have cause to regret their action
Randolph will prove the right man in
the right place.
--WE are not just now inclined to
express au opinion, one way or the
other, as regards the Backarow abduc
tion case which occured near Shreve
port last week, and in which a young
married lady of respectability was con
cerned. Backarow is known here, and
his acquaintances seem to have taken
quite an interest in his behalf. If, af
ter trial, he should prove to be guilty
of the charges preferied against him,
be ought be punished. Better put a
stop to such proceedings before others
follow suit; when such events are
chronicled the State and the people
who live in that particular section are
the sufferers therefrom. Check up.
Not Symptoms, But the Disease.
It would seem to be a truth appre
ciable by all, and especially by pro
fessors of the healing art, that to re
move thq disease, not to alleviate its
symptoms, should be the chief aim of
medication. Yet in how many instan
ces do we see this truth admitted in
theory, ignored in practice. The rea
son that Hostetter's Stomach Bitters is
successful in so many cases, with which
remedies previously tried were inade
qulate to cope, is attributable to the
fact that it is a medicine which reach
es and removes the causes of the va
rious maladies to which it is adapted.
Indigestion, fever and ague, liver com
plaint, gout, rheumatism, disorder of
the bowels, urinary affections and oth
or maladies are not paliated merely,
but rooted out by it. It goes to the
fountain head. It is really, not nomi
nally, a radical remedy, and it endows
the system with an amount of vigor
which is its best protectinn against
disease.
The Burnt Seminary Building.
Editor Democrat
I wish to call the attention through
your columns of the appointment by
concurrent resolution of the Senate and
House of Representatives of a com
mission to report at the approaching
session in May, the cost of rebuilding
the State Seminary building. I copy
the resolution which was introduced
in the Senate by Senator Smart, passed
that body and was sent to the House
on July 7th and is reported on page
514 of the of the House Journal as
follows, viz :
"Be it resolved by the Senate of the
State of Louisiana, the House of Repre
sentatives concurring, that G. W. Bolton,
Jienjamin Turner, the President of ihe Po
lice of Rapides Parish, F. M. Raxedale and
)Denis McManus, be and they are hereby
appointed a special commission to estimate
the cost of rebuilding the burnt college
building in Rapides Parish, belonging to
the Louisiana State Seminary of learning
and Military Acaeemy; to furnish for in
formation the prices at which material for
building can be fulrnished at said place,
and such other information in relation
thereto as may be pertinent to the subject
of rebuilding said college edifice. Said
special commission shall also report as to
the value and condition of the property
belonging to the State at that place; -
provided that they shall serve without
compensation from the State of Louisiana,
and they are hereby required to report at
lhe next session of the Legislature.
The commissioners have about three
months in which to discharge their du
ties, but I suggest to them that they
meet as soon as possible and enter up
on the work entrusted to them.
Respectfully,
ROBT. P. HrTaRR,
Rct'resentative.
THE LOTTERY QUESTION.
Editor Democrat
The three principal questions which
agitated the public mind in this State
during the last campaign were, the
Public Schools, the railroads and the
Lottery. I have already had some
thing to say on the first two, and with
your permission I propose now to show
what was done at the last session of
the Legislature in reference to the La.
State Lottery and to discuss that
matter.
The first attempt made was to pass
a bill proposing an amendment to the
Constitution, abolishing the charter,
or rather to repeal the recognitions of
that institution contained in the Con
stitution of 1879. This bill came from
the committee on the Constitution with
a favorable report, was discussed at
length and failed of passage for want
of the requistte two thirds vote. It
can be said to the credit of the House
that there was a majority in favor of
the bill. Failing in this another bill
was introduced to charter another com
pany. This was defeated for want of
a majority. The policy of those op
posed to the Louisiana State Lottery
was, first to abolish all lotteries and
failing in this to charter other compa
nies as provided for in the Constitu
tion in order to destroy the monthly
enjoyed by the Louisiana Lott~ery Co.
There was an attempt made to repeal
the statutes which protect the sale of
the tickets of that company. This
failed like all the others, only that in
the case of this bill there was an ad
verse report from the Committee. The
Journal will show that I voted with
and made a report for the minority of
the Committee favoring the passage
of the bill, which came up at or near
the close of the session.
I have thus recapitulated what was
done or rather attempted to be done,
for several reasons. *In this Palish
the influence of the Louisiana Lottery
Company was forcibly shown to us by
the use of money in the last campaign.
The public resented this very justly
and the issue of Lottery and anti-Lot
tery was sharply drawn in this Parish.
In some of the other parishes there is
a sentiment which found expression in
the papers and in the votes of mem
bers, that it is better policy to let the
Lottery alone than to fight it. I have
even heard it expressed here. I do
not share in this sentiment and never
have entertained that view. The same
policy would induce the clergyman to
let the devil alone for fear of stirring
him up to renewed activity. "Eternal
vigilance is the price of liberty," and
eternal warfare is the destiny of right
and truth. The flaunting assertion
sent abroad in every advertisement of
this company, "that this is the only
Lottery in any State ever voted on
and indorsed by its people," is a con
tinuedimputation upon the intelligence,
if not the morality of the people of
Louisiana, and it is as well an unceas
ing rienace to our material prosperity,
because it seriously impairs the stand
ing of this State with the people of
other States. Nor is it true that the
people of this State in adopting the
Constitution of 1879, had any inten
tion of endorsing the Lottery Compa
ny. The recognition of it in that in
strument had been artfully included in
the body of the instrument itself and
the people had no opportunity of vot
ing for or against the-Lottery per se.
Had the question been submitted in
the shape of a separate ordinance of
the Convention it would have been
overwhelmingly defeated.
Nor is the policy indicated above
good policy. The recognition, such
as it is, in the Constitution of 1879 was
to last only until 1895 and it is cer
tain-as certain as any future event
can be-that at some time before
these next nine years have passed, a
vigorous effort will be made to secure
a renewal of the charter of that con
cern. There aro but two more Legis
latures to be elected before the present
"recognition" expires. I say "recog
nition" advisedly, because the Louisi
ana Lottery Company has no charter.
The one it had was repealed by the
Nicholls legislature and the Constitu
tional Convention could do no more
than to "recognize" it. It could not
and did not pretend to give it a new
charter and it has none. That before
1895 it will try to get a new one, no
sane man can doubt.
To secure its purpose it will not
besitate to debase and corrupt politics
in this State as it has done in the past.
The "let it alone" policy will be just
playing into its hand and will afford
it the opportunity to do its work of
bribery and corruption the more se
curely and certainly. The necessity
will be upon it to fight for its future
existence and judging from its past
record tt will not scrople at the em
ployment of any means to gain its end.
It will be a disturbing factor in Louis
iana politics unti! the people kill it
too dead to kick.
Entertaining now the same views I
have always held on this subject, and
knowing of no change in the opinion
of the people of this Parish who sent
me to thp legislature to reflect their
opinions I shall, so far as I may be
able, continue to attack the Louisiana
Lottery Company, at the approaching
session in May and I shall not sub
scribe to the "let it alone" poliey: un
til it is dead or eliminated as a factor
in Louisiana politics.
Respectfully,
tou'. P'. Ht-TER.
