this medicine two or three mouths I

so severe a cold that for some days I

THE BAPTIST CHRONICLE'S TI
RADE AGAINST THE CATHO
OLIC CHURCH AND THE LOT
TERY COMPANY.
The most shameful, the most dis
gusting and the most ignorant and
savage production that, we firmly be
lieve, ever appeared in print, adorned
in a late issue the pages of the Baptist
Chron cle, published at Shreveport, La
The article in question was an edi
torial tirade against the Roman Cath
olic Church, in which it is charged
that but for the said church such an
institution as the Louisiana Lottery
Company would he unknown to the
Constitution of the State. "Roman
votes grounded the Lottery Company
in the laws of the State and Roman
votes will grant a renewal of its
charter."
In its tissue of falsehoods and utter
ances of diabolical hate, in its pitiable
arraignment of priests and members of
the most venerable and enlightened
church of all ages, the Baptist Chroni
cle editor surely must have temporarily
lost his head. Read the following ex
tract from his insane editorial:
'-Ve believe from the teachings of the
Roman Catholic Church, its practices,
its open expression on great moral ques
tions, the licentiousness of iispriesthood,
and the general immorality of tts mem
bership, that it is the greatest curse in
Louisiana, morally, politically, finan
cially or any other way."
"The general immorality of its
membership.' Now, if the writer of
this nauseating, revolting and lying
paragraph should not he horsewhipped,
tarred and feathered and made to quit
the country, what ought to be done
with him I But he is crazy, I hear
you reply. Mad ! Perhaps so. Well,
then, it is the only palliative excuse;
but a commitment to the State Asy
lum should at once be made out for
him, and he should he confined in a
separate cell all alone, for his is a most
dangerous malady.
It will puzzle scientific medical men
to truly diagnose the kind of mental
aberration from which this unfortunate
editor apparently so acutely suffers;
for, on a further perusal of the edito
rial referred to, we find that police in
spection of convents and nunneries is
strongly advocated ; that once rid of
the Louisiana Lottery Company, next
the christians (T) must solidly unite and
drive out every C'tholie now within
the borders of the State, because
wherever the Catholio Church acquires
predominance there the result is death
ening and a blight cast upon the
people.
Mad, mad, mad ! and grossly igno
rant of the truth of history and of pre
sent existing conditions. In the Uni
ted States to-day Roman Catholics
outnumber Baptists-"hardshell," free
will or any other kind-in the ratio of
5 to 1, and far exceed in greater ratio
all other denominations of a like heter
ogeneous type, vet does everybody
praise the progress shown in these
same United States, and they are held
up in foreign countries as in their uni
ty representing and actually constitu
ting the most perfect republic the
world has ever seen. Wherein did
you discover the germs of death and
everlasting blight, 0, most wonderful
and pious editor, before whom should
all immoral members of the debasing
Roman Church prostrate themselves
and beg pardon and promise reforma
tion if allowed to remain in their loved
Louisiana
You surely did not find them in the
history of your country. Your coun
try, that is, if you are an American,
the which is hard to believe, for only
from the bittercst North of Ireland
Protestant or Tory Orangeman could
such an effusion as your's emanate!
Ah ! it is you that have our utmost
sympathy, for after what you have
been guilty of in placing such outra
geous gibbesish before the subscribers
of the Baptist Chronidle. Poor man,
your head must fall. Further, as we
plainly see the impossibility of any
part of your attractive and most unique
programme being carried out. Again,
dearly beloved and misguided confrere,
we beg to offer expressions of condo
lence, althongh you are unworthy of
them. Your ambition is lofty; you
aim at being regarded as a modern
Cromwell, and you succeed in being
regarded as a modern ass, because you
bray like one. You pose as accuser,
and hardly any man has ever dared to
utisurp to himself the insulting arro
gance you betray in your indictment
of the priests and members of your
bete noir, the Catholic Church; acoord
ing to your diatribe, nothing moral is
found outside of that church of stag
gering foundation, the Baptist, of
which we presume you are a devout,
but not a representative member; and
in all we can trace the fact and coune
to the conclusion that first, by the pro
cess of evolution, you are an undoubt
ed reproduction of the intolerant and
oppressive sixteenth century type of
manhood, upon which, nowadays, peo
ple muse in astonishment and think of
with pity; and second, that you will
find it convenient to start at once from
the sanctum of the Baptist Chronicle
on a trip to the "Dark Continent" of
Africa, where among the savages, af
ter a time, you may be converted to a
greater liberality and judiciousness of
opinion.
-E. J. Sullivan, the druggist, de
sires us to publish the following testi
monial as he handles the remedy and
believes it to be reliable:
I bought a 50 cent bottle of Chamber
lain's Pain Balm and applied it to my
limbs, which have been afflicted with
rheumatism at intervals for one year. At
the time I bought the Pain Balm I was
unable to walk. I can truthfully say
that Pain Balm has completely cured me.

THE HOUSTON, CENTRAL
ARKANSAS AND NORTH
ERN RAILROAD.
Major C. G. Woodbridge, Chief
Engineer of the Houston, Central
Arkansas & Northern R:ailroad JCom
pany, having arrived in Alexandria
early in the week, and desiring to
make certain propositions to our citi
zens, it was decided to call a meet
,eg of citizens, at the City Hall, on
Wednesday afternoon, March 12,
1890, at 5 o'clock.
On the (lay and hour above stated,
quite a large number of Alexan
dlriane. also some citizens of Pine
ville, were present.
On motion Judge J. R. Thornton
was called upon to preside, and the
following newspaper representatives
secretaries, viz: E. H. McCormick,
of the TowN TALK ; A. P. Williams,
of the Picayqune, and W. W. Whit
tington, Jr. for the La. Democrat.
The Chairman, Judge Thornton,
stated that Major Woodbridge was
of the opinion that it would be best
for a citizen of Alexandria to explain
to the meeting what the Railroad
Company asked for and what the
Company Iroposed to do in return.
The Chairman then in clear, forcible
language stated what was expected
,f Alexandria, and what the Com
pany would do in return.
IHe said that the road had passed
into the hands of Mr. Gould, and it
was well known that when Mr. Gould
ordered a railroad built it was done.
A short line from St. Louis to New Or
lear.s is what Mr. Gould wanted, and
the extension of the Houston, Cen
tral Arkansas & Northern Railroad
from Columbia, La., to Ajexandria.
would give him a short line to St.
Louis.
This road has already been located
to the head of Catahoula Lake.
From this point two routes have
been selected-one crossing Red
river near Experiment plantation,
running through Avoyelles parish
and connecting with the Texas &
Pacific at Rosa Station; the other
route comes direct through Rapides
parish, for about 8 miles, crossing
Red river at Alexandria. Mr.
Woodbridge, the speaker said, was
in favor of the Alexandria route.
Mr. Gould some weeks ago preferred
the Avoyelles route because it would
shorten the route from New Orleans
to St. Louis at least 20 miles. The
grade by the Avoyelles route was
less also than that to Alexandria.
The Chairman spoke of 'the large
number of railroad meetings our
citizens had been called upon to at
tend, and how lihttle benetit the city
had derived from same. Said that
lihe had seen proof from Mr. Gould
stating positively that if the city of
Alexandria would give what was
asked of it through Major Wood
bridge, that the road would be com
pleted to Altxandria as fast as
money andl men cou!d do it. The
Chair empchasized the fact that this
was the best offer that Alexandria
had yet had, becaunse the gentleman
at the head of the Company had the
means to carry out his statements
and contracts, and would do so.
Judge Thornton informed the
meeting that if this railroad was
built to Alexandria that we would be
only 526 miles from St. Louis instead
of 772 miles, the distance via the T.
& P. and Iron Mountain roads. The
distance from Alexandria to Kansas
City by this new road would be 809
mniles instead of 1055 miles as by
the present nearest rail route.
It the people of Alexandria secure
the H., C. A. & N. R. R. the Chair
man stated that it would prove a
glreat lever in securing other projec
ted railroads. Hlie spoke of the
Aransas Pass Railway Company now
building to Alexandria and surveyed
to Anna Coco Bayou. That it we
secure the H., C. A. & N. R. R. that
we were certain of getting other
roads, provided the city shows the
enterprising spirit it has in the past.
'The following is asked of Alexandria
by the Houston, Central Arkansas
and Northern Railroad Company:
Right of way through the parish
for about 8 miles.
Thirty acres of land for depot and
terminal facilities.
xemenption from Parish taxation for
10 years.
A 5 mill tax for 10 years time.
The property owners have already
voted a 5 minll tax for ten years to this
company. They will be asked to
amend it by giving the Compnny 3
months longer time in whioh to com
plete the road, and also give the
road the right to put the bridge
wherever the U. S. engineers may
select, either above or below, or in
side the corporate limits.
Arrangements have already been
made to give the 30 acres of land,
and the parish authorities have al
ready passed an ordinance remitting
taxation for 10 years to the first
railroad company building into Alex
andria from the North.
Judge Thornton said that there
was no danger to our people except
over-confidence, and noted a town in
North Louisiana that had lost this
same road by the over-confidence of
its people and because its citizens
did not keep their promises to the
Company. That some people in the
community thought we would get the
road anyhow, whether we gave any
thing or not, a fatal error to many
towns. Do not, said the speaker,
let us falllinto that pit.
The Chairman said that Mr.
Woodbridge thought he could com
plete the road and have cars running
nto Alexandria in l1 months.
The Chairman closed amidst great
applause.
Remarks were made by Major
Geo. O. Watts, Messrs. W. J. Cal
vit, E. H. McCormick, T. N. Miles,
Joo. A. Williams and Major C. G.
Woodbridge.
The following resolution was of
fered by Capt. Jno. A. Williams;
which was uneanimously adopted
awmidst great enthusiasm:
"Re.solved, That recognizing the
great importance to us of a North
and South road, we are heartily in
favor of accepting the propositions
of the Houston, Central Arkansas
and Northern Railroad, and pledge
ourselves to do all in our power to
have said propositions acted on favor
ably with the least possible delay."
A motion was made and duly car
ried instructing the Chairman to ap
point a Committee, consisting of six
members, as an executive Committee
to assist in carrymng out the sense of
the meeting.
On motion duly carried the thanks
of the citizins of Alexandria were
tendered Maj r C. G. Woodbridge
for the kindness and courtesy shown
by him to our people.
The Chair was allowed by the.
meeting until Thursday morning to
hand in the names of the Executive
Committee.
There being no further business
on motion the meeting adjourned
sine die.

LOCAL NOTES FROM LECO0TE.
-Notwithstanding the expensive
delay caused by having to send some
of the machinery to New Orleans for
repairs, the shingle company will prob
ably have another setback. The heavy
rains of Tuesday night and Wednes
diay last have completely demolished
the upper dam, and the lower levee is
so badly damaged that the present
head of water will be lost before re
pairs can be made.
-Dr. Hardy has a good stand of
corn, which was planted after the re
cent cold spell.
-The exact damage to cane cannot
he determined jyet, but some expert
cane planters place the estimate at 2.
per cent.
-Mrs.IEdwin L. Parkman, nee Miss
Rosa Spreigel, who has furnished such
charming music on several occasions
of late, will open a private school in
the near future. She is eminently
qualified and deserves to le well pa
tronized.
-Rumor has it that a wedding will
soon take place in prominent circles.
"Can't say for the truth of, but scribe
was shown some bits of poetry the
other day which seemed to him "deuc
edly" sentimental.
-What appeared to be a foot race
Sunday evening turned out to he
Judge L. E. Smith and Prof. Octo
Watts trying to catch the train. Offi
cial dignity and professional decorum
gave place to flopping garments and
loud footsteps.
-Street gamblers made their ap
pearance this week, but the Justice of
the Peace, and his officer, seconded by
the good people of the town, have im
pressed on their minds that Lecomte is
not seeking that sort of enterprise.
-A notorious negro from Bunkie a
few days since raised quite a distr
hance on the Meeker plantation. He
had beaten the woman he was living
with so cruelly that she left her home
at Bunkie and sought the protection
of her brother at Meeker's. The bru
tal darkey followed her, however, and
again whipped her drew a pistol on
her brother, and at last forced her to
leave with him, her child remaining
behind. The brother had a warrant
issued and only for the wrong diree
tion being given the officer he would
now probably be where he could not
exercise his brutal passion so liberally.
-An old man by the name of Fer
rell was brought to town Friday under
a warrant sworn out by Louis Bonill,
who alleged that Terrell assailed his
son, Oscar, with a knife. A compro
mnise was agreed on, and deponent
asked the Judge the privilege of with
drawing evidence against him. He
was dismissed with a severe reprimand
from the Court.
-The twelve year old son of Mr.
Jack Jenkins, who lives on Cocodrie,
a few days sines met with a very se
rious accident. He found one of the
fulminating caps used to explode dy
namite, which had laid in the water
since October, when the channel was
being opened with that explosive. He
tried to pick out the contents of the
cap, when it exploded, tearing away
some of his fingers, and utterly tore
out the palm of his hand, which will
make him a cripple for life.
