-"E'x-(Gov." P'harr, in order to
delude the Populists and catch

during the campaign that lie was

rather more in favor of protection

-You mulnst denounce Cleve

Of course, baseless denunciation
of one of the best national admin

demagogic free silverits journals

DEATH OF MRS. STOWE.
Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe, the
famons authoress, died at her resti
deuce at Hartford, Conn., at an'
advanced age, on the first of this
mouth. Mrs. Stowe is better
known to the American public as
the authoress of "Uncle Tom's
Cabin," a work which graphically,
but with r uch of exaggeration,
depicted the cruelties of the ante
hellum master to his slaves, and
which was dramatized, enacted
upon the stage and so visibly af
tcoteed Northern audiences as to
cause both men and women to
shed tears of commiseration for
the unhappy Southern slave. In
deed, "Uncle Tonm's Cabin," iul
conjunction with the anti slavery
agitation conducted so systemati
cally and persistently for years by
Wendell Philips, Loyd Garrison,
Charles Sumner, Horace Greeley
and a host of equally as zealous,
but less brilliant abolitionist lumi
naries, finally precipitated the civ
ii conflict and the eventual manu
mission of the Southern slaves.
Mrs. Stowe be!onged to a family
of intellectual and literary giants,
the most prominent and distin
guished of whom was Henry Ward
Beecher, the famous pastor of I'ly
mouth church and celebrated di
vine, known and honored all over
the civilized world, until his re
splendent star was eclipsed by the
blighting effect of a scandalous
litigation from which he ;!:-j.4
covered. Mr8s.StCeair d been an

CHICAGO CONVENTION. - The
Democratic convention or rather
free silver convention-for it seems
to be the determination of the ma
jority to ignore party traditions
and precedents and subordi,.ate
democratic principles to free sil
verism-assembled at Chicago at
12 In., yesterday. Up to the hour
of going to press, no definite infor
mnation had been received, but the
Teller boom had collapsed and it
was generally understood that the
nomination was between Bland
and Boiec, with the chances pre
ponderating in favor of the former.
Since the above was -put in
type, later dispatches advise us
that the National Democratic Comn
mit.tee has elected Senator David
IB. Hill of New York, as tempora
ry chairman of the convention.
The vote in committee was Hill,
27; Daniel, 23. It is the general
inmpression that the tree sil
ver forces will not abide the ac
tion of the committee, but will
overthrow party custom, usage and
precedent by the election of Sena
tor Daniel, of Virginia.
-We congratulate the people of
lberville Parish, and especially
the legislative delegation, that the
bill authorizing the purchase by
the State of the "Lepers' Home" in
th,,t Parish, was defeated in the
House. This will likely put an ef
fectual qmetus upon the movement
to quater the Lepers permanently
in that Parish, as the State only
has a lease on the home, which
will expire in two or three years,
when the unfortunates may be re.
aloved to some other and more l&,
lated locality. The people of Iber
ville are patient indeed, that they
should have permitted such a
standing menace to the health of
the community, to have found
lodgmolnt within their midst. We
don't believe that the Lepers could
have been colomnzed in this Parish,
without causing a much more vig
rous and forcible protest against
the outraga, tlhanI was exhibited
by the peopleof lberville.
-Dudenhefer's high hat bill
passed both the house and Sen
ate by large majorities, but in such
an emasculated condition, it is said
that "Dude" was unable after
wards to even recoguize the act
of his own creation. As it pass
edtl the House, the high hat feature
was eliminated, the ladies only
being required to deposit their
head-gear in a room tb be provided
for that purpose by the owners,
managers or lessees of theaters and
opera houses. It was amended in
the Senate so as to permit Ithem to
wear what is known as opera bon.

Ferocious Dogs Turned Loose on
the People -- -
.The city is infested by ferocious
dogs which are attacking every
person they meet, and have been e
particularly dangerous to children,
many of whom have been recently
terribly torn by them. It is claim- .
ed that these dogs are licensed to t
go free ; but no dog is licensed to &
devour children in the streets. If
there is no law to compel the own- 1
ers of these ferocious beasts to
keep them muzzled when they.are
turned loose on the people, then It I
becomes the duty of the City
Council to give protection to the
people by some adi quatte ordi
nance, or else the nul;te population I
will be driven to carry guns for a
their d.efeinse and for the pro I
tection of their little on:es.-[N. O. t
The tagged is as dangerous as
the untagged dog. While the
system in vogue in Alexandria
and perhaps other cities and
towns, of permitting dogs to roam
the streets at will, whose owners
have paid the municipal license,
may iuc; ease the treasury receipts,
it will afford no protection to the
men, women and children, who
are compelled to peramibulate the
streets and daily come in contact
with a number of vicious and per
haps rabid canines. There is but
one safe course to pursue and that
is to pass a stringent law requiring
the owners of dogs to keep them
within their enclosures and make
it mandatory upon the authorities
to shoot them whenever they are
found upon the streets without a
