JUSTICE LAMAR ON MISSISSIPPI.
Frank George Carpenter, the veteran
gossiper of the national capital, credits a
remarkable utterance to Justice L. Q. C.
Lamar, the long-time senator from Mis
siss:ppi. "I saw him this afternoon riding from
the supreme Court to his home on Massa
chusetts avenue in a red herdicy' says
Carpenter. "His shoulders are stooped,
and he has lost thirty pounds during the
winter. His health is not bettered by
the gloomy views he takes of the south
and its future. He told me the other
day that he thought Mississippi would
eventually be a negro state, and that the
whites would be forced to emigrate. lie
is so confident of this that he is anxious
to sell liis plantation in Mississippi, con
sisting of about 500 acres of the finest
land in the state, and having on it forty
seven registered cows and a number of
fine horses. Justice Lamar has a mag
nificent homestead there, and his lands
are under the best of cultivation. He of
fers the wKble for much less than it is
worth, and he says he has no desire to
have any of his friends remain in Missis
sippi. Said he to me:
"The influence of the present adminis
tration is bound to be altogether in favor
of the blacks at the expense of the
whites, and the whites will not permit
the blacks to rule them. Had Blaine
been elected president the result would
have been different, and the outlook for
the south would have been better, but as
it is it seems to mevas dark as can be,
and what will be the future God only
Justice Lamar is evidently becoming
pessimistic in his old age. How he ar
rives at tho conclusion that the adminis
tration is responsible for the transferring
of large numbers of colored people from
one southern state to another is past the
writer's comprehension. That there has
been such transfers, and in large num
bers, within the patt year or two, is an
admitted fact, and that it has not been
accomplished wholly on the emigrant's
own motion will not be denied. But it
has been done at the instance and
through the agency, very largely, of the
owners of large tracts of land in the
delta country that are unoccupied and
have been for years, some of them al
ways, by corporations and contractors
that require more labor than could be se
cured in that country.
It were perhaps uncharitable to attri
bute sinister motives to the reverend jus
tice, but it is at least possible that, hav
ing determined to cut loose the social
and material ties that have hitherto
bound him to his Mississippi home and
friends, in view of his permanent abode
now fixed in Washington, he has fallen
upon this plan of excusing himself for
thus tearing away and deserting them.
But whatever the cause for his gloomy
declarations, tlie situation he seems to so
much deplore, is certainly not what he
alleges it to be. the only intimation given
out from the White House that would
bear such a suspicion being the presi
dent's declared purpose to uphold tiio
authority of the government, made in
connection with the celebrated Florida
outrage cases a short time ago, and the
colored race, in that connection, was
more an incident than a cause of action.
Bah! Justice Lamar.
While the citizens of Fort Worth were
deploring the fiery destruction of their
beautiful Spring Palace- the Rev. William
B. Allen, pastor of the Cumberland Pres
byterian church :it Longview, Texas,
preached a sermon to them, in which ho
said that the wreck of tho magnificent
structure was a just punishment sent by
tho Almighty to rebuke the people for
their sins. The reverend gentleman
Wl deeply sympathise with Fort Worth
in tho loss of her charming palace. It was
a thing of rare beauty and to Texas hor
chief exponent of internal resources. There
is no true Texan but regrets that confla
gration. Yet, to me, it resembles tho
angry expression of an insulted Provi
dence. Fort Worth lias sustained a repu
tation above any other city in Texas as. a
Christian city. Her hospitality to all
Christian people in the past is unexcelled.
She will entertain nnythimr. Tho tower
ing spires of magnificent church houses,
costing 30,000, more fully attest her ap
preciation of that which is good and right.
Christian people are proud of Fort Worth.
Rut, in the face of this reputation and just
following the scathing rebukes ot the so
cial dance as administered by Dixon
Williams Sam Jones, the .local pators,
and in opposition to the desire of every
loyal Christian among her citizens, there
are gathered hundreds of light-hearted
soulsto mar the glory of that "palace and j
change her glory into revelry. .1 ust as tho
revel was to begin. like lielchazzar's cham
ber, there appeared a handwriting on tlie
wall. It was in characters of tire, and with
tho speed of flame in dry stubble the pride
and glory not only of Fort Worth but of
till lexas was swept away.
No right thinking person will deny
that it is tho duty as well as the pre
rogative of the minister of the gospel to
rebuke sin and reprove the sinner m a
specific as well as in a general way, yet
nobody who is not himself a fanatic will
approve of such an outbreak of fanatical
cant, as that quoted above. Holy writ
says in so many words that there is a
time to dance and a time to make merry,
and if the occasion the reverend gentle
man so harshly inveighed against in the
above was not such a time, then we and
everybody else is at loss to conceive of an
occasion when it would be admissable
for the ieople to thus make merry.
But the Texas papers have taken up
his text, and nre preaching him sermons
which w is not like to forget. The Fort
Wort Worth Gazette says that his com
ments are an insult to the intelligence of
the nineteenth century and a foul injus
tice to the Christian people who were as
sembled at the pa lace Friday night to hear J
the music and admire the decorations.
Mr. Allen may lie a good man, and
perhaps he means well; but when he un
dertakes to interpret Divine Pro ideoce
in this way. it strikes us that he is going
a little too far, and he evidently deserves
the scathing rebuke which the Christian
people ot Fort Worth have administered.,

by popular election. It was so decided,
and a committee appointed to prepare a

some terrible disappointments to some

that the recent spasmodic advance in

profit over cost, and havo shut down

make money by this plan, while they
would lose by spinning cotton into goods

TS"HY SILVSR IS OPPOSED EAST.
Asthoxy, Kan., June 12, 1SO0.
To the Editor at the Eitcte.
It may never liave occurred, to many
of your readers whj it is that "Wall
street" and tlie "money bags" of the
east are invariably opposed io tlie free
coinage of silver. 3loney is a commod
ity like everything else, ami tho less
there is of it. tlie more valuable it b
oome, compared with prices ot other
oommodititis, and the barter it is. there-
fore, for those that have it in abundance.
To illustrate: When the wheat crop is
very short the wide world over, such of
our farmers as are fortunate enough to
have a good crop, know that it means an
increased price for the same and that
they will be individually benefitted by
the shortage, although the balance of
the people will suffer thereby. So it is
with money, when there is a scarcity it
brings large rates of interest, and be
comes very valuable compared with
the value of other commodities.
Tiiis can only benefit the
creditor class, while the debtor class the
world ever will suffer by it. But make
money plenty by increasing the volume
in circulation among the people, rates of
interest would be much lower and it
would therefore seek other channels of
investment, other than being loaned at
exorbitant interest rates that no legiti
mate business can pay.
The dollar of today has by its scarcity
been made altogether too valuable com
pared with the value of other commodi
ties, and it now buys too much of every
thing that the debtor class has to sell.
But make it more plentiful and it will
take more dollars to buy an acre of land,
or a bushel of wheat or a bushel of corn
than now. This would benefit, as every
one can see, the farmer, the debtor and
everybody else, except; the "money
lenders." Hence the reason why
people can notTnow pay their old debts
is simply because the dollar which they
must now pay back is worth much more
than it was when the debt was contract
ed, through the machinations of "Wall
street" and the "rich nabobs" of the east.
In other words, it has become so valuable
that it takes more land, more wheat,
more corn, cattle, hogs, etc., to make a
dollar than it did when the debt was con
tracted. Thus we see why Wall street is opposed
to free coinage of silver. It would not
benefit the "money lenders" of the east,
and it is a disgrace to this country to see
the secretary of the treasmy of these
United States pollute his high office by
tlepressing the poor and debtor classes,
by controlling the money of the country
in the interests of Wall street.
As the debtor class reside mostly in
tlie west it is to the interests of the west
ern people to exert all the influence they
possess for the free coinage of silver.
My only aim in contributing this mite
to this most important subject is that
the people of the west be educated so
that they may protect themselves against
Wall street. I am sorry to say that so
far the east has been entirely too smart
for us. Keep up the fight you have in
augurated, and you will surely win the
esteem of your people in the end for be
ing more wise and sagacious than many
of your fellow editors, who are doing the
west more harm than hot winds, grass
hoppers and every thing else combined.
Faithfully, R. D. L.
Tho American Wool and Cotton Re
porter of Boston, which has hit Kansas
many a hard lick, is fair enough to print
editorially, under the above caption, the
"There could hardly be more promis
ing evidence that an era of better times,
such as has never before been enjoyed,
is beginning to make itself apparent in
the state of Kansas that the daily reports
which are coming to us concerning
bright crop prospects, the late advance
in farm products and the steady dis
charge of mortgage indebtedness.
"There are estimated to be in the state
of Kansas today ."iO.OOO.OOO bushels of
corn Avhich three months ago was selling
for 17 cents, but which is now command
ing 23 and 2." cents at the railroad sta
tion! The amount of wheat still on
hand, it is said, will amount to 20,000,
000 bushels. Three months ago the
farmers were receiving for this Go cents;
today it is worth about 90 cents. This
advance in both corn and wheat is stim
ulating a liberal movement in these
cereals and is infusing new life and en
ergy into all lines of business, particu
larly among the farming population.
'According to a late report, the condi
tion of winter wheat on a basis of 100
shows for Kansas 110. which the increas
ed acreage of from 20 to 30 per cent for
the state will give a crep of winter wheat
alone of probably 50.000,000 bushels. It
is probably safe to saj' that of the G0,
000.000 bushels of corn and wheat now
on hand the proceeds from 33,000,000
bushels will be applied to the discharge
of mortgage indebtedness. The growing
wheat never ga e better promise at this
period of the season than it does now,
the cool weather of the past four weeks
being just what was needed.
"Eastern people can never realize the
wonderful recuperative power of this
state until the' have visited it and ex
amined the soil and almost phenomenal
crop it produces with little more than
one-tenth of the area of the state under
actual cultivation. Here is instance char
acteristic of the state and the possibilities
of the Kansas farmer: Tlie other da' a
Harvey county farmer and stock raiser
sold forty-seven head of cattle for 2.
762. With this money he wiped out all
his indebteness, leaving his farm free
of mortgage and stocked with sixty head
of young cattle and 300 hogs. Among
other things which have a good deal to
do with the condition of the farmers in
Kansas is the farmers himself.
"Taken altogether, therefore, from
the agricultural point of view, there is
much to encouage the Kansas people and
good prospects that all the delinquent
and accruing interests will be paid
promptly and in ever man instances the
entire mortgage discharged from the
farm before another vear."
