$t. tandry and Immigration.
St. Landry is in a latitude which
claims almost a total exemption from
severe cold weather. Often vegetation
grows- throughout the winter months,
and the coldest snaps will not excted'd
the bracing coolness of early spring
days. When we do happen to have
freezing cold, it is of such short. dura
tion that it is scarcely felt and seldom
does much injury. In summer the in- 1
tensity of the heat is so much modified
by the cool Gulf breezes that the wea
ther never becomes seeltering agd dan
gerously oppressive Ks in higher lati
tudes. Deaths by sunstroke are un
known with us. Hence, the, salubrity
of our climate is unsurpassed by any
portion of the United States. We are
free from the rigor of colder sections,
with the dreaded heated terms which
visit their summers.
We have many advantages which at
tach to the luxuriance of the tropics in
vegetation, yet are exempt from it4 tor
rid heat, malignant epidemics and cy
clonic disturbances. Our soil is fertile,
and very productive in cotton, sugar
cane, corn, rice, potatoes and all kinds
of vegetables. The ramie and jute
plants grow well hemse, and are destined
to become prominent factors in the in
dustry of our near future. Apples,
peaches, pears, quinces, pomegranates,
Japan plums, other varieties of plums,
grapes, strawberries, and last, but not
least oranges, all produce well here.
This is the best poor man's country in
the world; because, with only ordinary
industry, he can make a good living. If
a man is active in his labor, intelligent
in its application and economical in his
earnings, he will soon be independent
and eventually rich.
Our broad prairies, with their rich
crops, make this, par excellence, a splen -
did stock country. We have thousands
of acres of land, at cheap rates and on
easy terms, awaiting enterprising immi
grants. Government lands can be en
tered at $1.25 per acre. Rich, but un
improved lands can be bought at $2 to
$5 per acre according to location. Im
proved lands rated from $5 to $15 per
acre, according to circumstances and
locality. Public school lands can be
leased at a very low rental. We repeat,
that St. Landry can offer as strong in
ducements to immigration as any part
of Louisiana ; nay, as much as any part
of the South. Let them first come and
look at our splendid section of the coun
try, and we do not hesitate to say that
they will be pleased.
At the clearing work of the Nationa .
Alliance Convention in Indianapolis
on the 24th inet. a resolution against
the Louisiana Lottery was introduced
but the Judiciary Committee, to which
it was referred, reported it back with
out recommendation and it was tabled.
This action was in perfect keeping
with the official statement made by
Col. Polk, the President of the National
Alliance some months ago, "that the
members of the Alliance were free to
vote upon the revenue amendment as
they saw proper." There is nothing
in the Constitution and By-Laws of
the Farmers' Union to bind its mem
bers in voting for or against the lottery
amendment, this test of membership
being brought in by' resolutions in
troduced by anti demagogues or the
more fanatical leaders of the Farmers'
Unions. Neither is the "revenue
amendment" any test of a man's
Democracy, it being an economic ques
tion as to whether the lottery shall he
licensed as a source of revenue to re
lieve the necessities of the State with
out imposing higher and more burden
some tastion upon the people. The
lottery amendment is not the issue in
the approaching State convention, but
Ocalaism vs. true Democraey.--Crowley

Curious Lottery Ancestry.
Baton Rouge Advocata-.
Tie New Orleann St:ate lhas becen
delving among the musty records of
Louisiana legislation, and wa.- reward
ed with sonie valuable information ii it
regard to ancient lot eries in the State
and the promotes of s uch ungodlvy a
schemes in past gentirations. At Xe ci c s
turn the searcher o und l lot tried of all
kinds-for levees. fto stria-ms, t'O li
braries, for colleges, for aca'uidea, ies, for
churches and for charitalhe or purely I
private intertests, wihile the foun ders
and praaon tt , of i ittitl w(1I tIatl a
whose namte. brighlten the page of the
early history of Louisiana, whose ser
vices to the State make their memories 1
enduring in the hearts of the people, I
and the record of whose honorable
lives is pointed to with pride by their
descendants of to day.
We have neither space nor time to
go over the rec'ird in detail, but pro 1
pose to touch it briefly, honling to
again refer tortt hereafter as an "' object
lesson " worthy of study antd conltemrn
plation. These lotteries were not
purely benevolent in object, but were
adopted as a measure of raising a rev ,
enue for the purposes for which they ;
were established. They flourished in
the good old times when the Louisiana
State Lottery had not come to disturb f
the " whole priceless domain of good a
morals" and to "trail the honor of e
Louisiana in the dust," as we are in
formed by the Anti-Lottery Address
recently issued is now the case. In
some of them the tickets sold realized
$50,000 while the prizes amounted to
only $20,000; in others the projectors
proposed to pay back 50 per cent of the
total receipts to the ticket holders,
though in some cases the gifts consist
ed of lands, live stock, books or house
hold furniture, estimated at about
twice their value.
The most notable church lotteries
were the Christ Church lottery, char
tered in 1810, which healped to build
the Episcopal Church of that name in
New Orleans, now the wealthiest con
grigation in the city; the Presbyterian
Church of New Orleans, now Rev. Dr.
B. M. Palmer's; the Evangelical lottery,
in 1828, to build an Evangelical Church
in New Orleans, and other church lot
teries granted as follows: In 1826, for
the St. Francis Church at Natchitoches;
in 1827, for the Catholic Church at St.
Martinsville, and in 1828 for the Church
of St. Joseph at Baton Rouge. Among
the educational lotteries incorporated
in that day way be mentioned the
.Collegg of Louisiana lottery chartered
about 1830, for the purpose of raising
$40,000 to establish a college at Jack
son, of which Centenary is the succes
sor; also lotteries to aid or establish
colleges or academies at Baton Rouge,
Natchitoches, Alexandria, Covington
and ofher places, and last but not least
a lottery to raise .money to found the
University of Louisiana.
On the " roll of honor," indeutified
with these various lotteries, we find
the names of Julien Poydras, John R.
Grymes, John McDonogh,, Levy Fos
ter, who not only voted for three of the
abominations but in a fervent speech
recomended that plan of raising reve
nue; Gen. Phil6mon Thomas, ,Branch
W. Miller, Alfred Hennen, Louis C.
DeBlanc, and a host of others, among
whom are the ancestors of some of the
leading anti-lottery advocates of the
present day. In the presence of these
illustrious men, standing before the
honored shrines of their patriotism, we
may ask ourselves whether our philoso
phy is wiser or our morality purer
than theirs; whether, in fact, we have
not grown squeamish rather than virtu
ous, and if modern piety is not rather
fashioned after that puritanical type
which strains at a gnat and swallows
" An object lesson was- given to me
to day, that has greatly strengthened
my resolve to vote for the revenue
amendment," a prominent gentleman
said in conversation one day last week.
," While in company with a group of
friends, a vendor of tickets of the Mad
ried Lottery came up and after a little
talk six of these friends, some of whom
w-e.r Antis,atpt eup $eA!.r-a bought
an $18 ticket from the vendor. I re
marked to them that it. seemed to me
that if Lwanted to investmoney in a
lottery ticket I would rather buy it
from the Louisiana company, since the
bulk of the money would stay here, in
stead of going :to Spfain,l l- -theirs
would. This," he added, "was a prac
tical demetostration of the absurdity of
trying to keep people from buying lot
tery tickets and of the plain wisdom of
adopting the revenue ameniddent.'
Were iotteries to be aboltblied.-ll over
this country, it'would' simply be the
means of sending vast suma abroad
that the Louisiana Lottery will keep
at home to increase our wealth and do

A Governor; one who will reside in
Baton Rouge, the capital of the State,
where the Chief Executive should live;
who will semi-occasionally make a de
cent pretense of consulting the people
when appointments are to be made;
whose post-election performances will
in a small degree square with his ante
election promises; who will strive to
unify the Democratic party instead of
making every effort to disrupt it by
ignoring and ostracising fully one-half
of the best Democrats in Louisiana;
who will recognize the fact that honest
differences of opinion can and do exist
among all people in regard to certain
matters of public policy, and will not
make the holding of an opinion differ
ent from his own a quasi-criminal of
fense, to be severely punished. Among
other references, applicant must be able
to offer a good moral character, together
with a certificate to the effect that he
never "monkeyed" with a "corrupt in

can find occupation for a period of four
years or longer, beginning May 12,1892.

It is amusing to see how the New
Delta and the.New Orleans Truth are
vainly endeavoring to convince their
readers that the lottery is still in the
fight. The reason is obvious--take
away the lottery and their party has
no ground to stand on. They must
needs swear that the lottery is only
fooling, that Mr. Morris and associates
are insincere in withdrawing their pro
iosition and that the democratic com
aittee is boldly lying when they assert
sir determination to cease a useless
and contentious lottery campaign.
These papers could not possibly pursue
a courýe more conclusive of the fact
that they are whipped, that their ocen
pation is forever gone.--Ruston Cali
The Republicans as a matter of
course are watching the political situa
tion in this State very closely, because
they see in it a prospect of splitting
the solid South. For such a split the
national Republican Committee would
not hesitate to raise and pay over to
the men who will do the work a mil
lion of dollars, and there are some agi
tators in the polities of this State who
woeuld not hesitate a moment to grab
a habare of the million. They are out
for the offices and the stnff and they
will stay out as long as there is any
hope el getting what they want.
The man*ibo can live oni wind and
water, who has old clothes enough to
last him through 1892; who is going
to stay at home and have no car fare to
pay; who can stand the preacher of
another year for his salary; who can
get along without a doctor, and who
can cut off all expenses except taxe';
may expect to clear money raising six
e'teotton.--Mer Rouge Vidette.
