ARtE rEPUBlIlCANS SAFE I e
W.lO ARE TIlE lURDERERS! 9
NEw OnLi.ANs, April 28, 1875. r
A friend writes me from the North 0
this question, "Are white ad black
Uuion men safe ia life, litterty and I
property in Louisiana I Th it iW the a
question whioh wo of the North want a
.to have houstly and sealiusly an.
I answer : -first, the popul ition 1
of Louisiana is dividted politically 0
intowelpublioans, callei hore radicals; h
and democrats, called here O..Userva. ti
.tives. They are all Union wea. It U
is absurd and wicked to keep up the b
4ld war animnosity by giving to the ai
Bouthern republicans the special a
title "Union men." The republican T
pnrty in Louisiansontains a great '"
many men who were -bitter secession
.i6ts, now only during, but after the to
vwar. 'One of the most couspionou
ropubicans, who oame before the hi
Congessional CommitteO nith coM. W
plainti, and who was proved thero D
-und then by do.mmentary evidence to P.
be a rogue. Judge Myein, of Natoi 'i
.toches, was a Breckenridge democrat 00
before the war, Another., 4reen, R
xvho admitted that be and his sots Of
%eld pretty miuch all the offices in PO
Lincoln pArish, wade a xpeeoh in the M
Legislature after the war advocating 1
-payment(far alaves. I could .mGn. .b
tion dozens of suoh .eases. On the do
.other hand, in nay limited acquaint. O*
ance in the State, I know ' at least 'i
4ifteen .Northern men, who were Of
strouuous republicans in the Nort, al
most of whom still openly act with. no
the National republican party in fed
,eral-elections, but who vote and use t
all their influence for the democrati l 0
or conservative party in State and e
,p-riah affairs. There are hundreds P
of such men in the State. .Even the 7)
republicans themselves are .ot so ti
mi). urd as !o .arrogate to them.elvw re
the title of '-Union men." They 's
.would be laughed at.
'IHE ViURTHORN MEN AND INEGoWoift
What tiy correspondent, and no R
.doubt mauy other Northern men, t
want to know is whether northern 't
men and iegroes are safe and can got di
.siouity and ijastice in Louisiana.; lu
-aid to this I ieply, unesitatingly,
"Yes." It is'perfee'ly true, as I
..said in.a.previous letter, that between
1865 and .1668 there was a good deal *
-of oavage a id bvutal wrong infliated e
-on the blacks ; and in the Qame a
period, and probably for a year or
.two later, Nlort.hern men who -came
herv .4e take possession of the State a
W politically, and who at once began a, al
.prodigious-systeum of,public pluuder,'
were not always safe fromn the anger t
'and resua.4ment, of the native white..
'l3ut several of the most prominent,
rep ablicaus of the city have told me
ipositively thaat the 8tate.was poescea
$ ble and.quiet from -1868 to d-872,
and that rsae.c thena the whites had a
been dissatilile mainly because they a
believed -sincerely that.Kellogg~ was W
not fairly.eleeot-el G-overnor and that (
ials rule was that of a usurper. If
Goeneral Sheridan.ever turns in his.

that parish wasone dfithe most.quiet in
the State until 1-874, when he and a

that I have takena somae pains to as fil

.j Now, thenr-4Sirst, an officinl -r*port,~ g
properly nusheat'icated,of the mur-, at
ders committed in this pariah from et
1868 to 1875 lies before me. They. .r<
-number fortyone, and .of these ,p
'there were whit.es murdered by ba
Swhitee, 1.3; colored murdered aby 'N
colored, 13.; whites by ceolored, 4.r<

known persons 3'; colored by uz*newn, 8
1; colored by offier, of justice in1 o

mao, .1. Now somebody may object a
~that the record is not correct, but to r
that the reply l~ that the parish has ti
been almost Otanally Blnloe 1868 ?
wander Republican offloers and that! t
Vhe Coroner is reputed here as else-- p
Where, to be an officer very zealous In t
ie collection of fees. It is not l
reditable to the republio4n rule , t
iat for these 41 homicides not one
ian has boon hanged, and only one I
as been punibsd in any way. J C
iuald add that there is no evidonoe I
Iat any of these tuurders arose out of [I
,)litical 0auses. t
row, then, conside.r that the parish t
ad for years a corrupt judge and a b
iieving tax collector, who managed t
I get all his sons into offioms, and a b
olice jury (county Supervisor,) m
ade up mainly of illiterate negroes. e
overnor Kellogg, in 1874 appointed i
s police jurors three colored men b
ho could ielther read nor write, one n
bite man -of infamous charbeter, o
bot even his fellow repub;icans b
ublis-ly prolestod against, and one ii
scent white mau. Ut.der such p
zlors the pariah tax, which alautnt. I
i to $13,475, with a valuation of $8,. fi
00,000 in 1860, rose to $46,894, on a C
aluation of but $2,000.000 in 1869, o
54,902 in 1870, and in 1873 it rose I
, $82,207- This was the parish tax p
lon, exclusive of the State tax. 2
be Supervisors allowed thenm.ielves T
rue year fifty cents a mile mileage o
>r every time they met. They paid 8
it $1,500 for a bridge which could b
ave been built for $300, and gave v
ie contractor a privilege to levy toll b
pon it for his own use when it was r(
Ailt. The Parish Judge, Myers, bi
knowledged before the Congression. It
COurawittee that he had for two qi
ars retained $7,500 of parish money
lia possession, in violation of an
der of a District Court to rotura iti
the TIeeasury ; he refused repeat. g
ly to draw.juries, in order to shield i
a confederates ; and yet this porson
as appoirted by 4overnor Ke'Iogg,

ople formed a taxpayers' associa- at

ifederates, the Tax Collector t

Boult to-day hold offioos in the 0)

!ery well. I find in four years
-ow 1868 to 1872.-the reconstrue
irs ran up a debt in this parish of
rer $142,000. This parish .had, in
B70 by the censuv, only 936 white
Drsonp. It registered in 1874 only
55 white voters and 2,135 blacks.
he few whites were, of course, the
ivners of almout all the property.

To return to the anantian of my
Northern friend, Lou144 Is at
peace. I doubt it thore is a single
man within its borders who does not
sincerely call himself a Ilon man.
The people unlversally apt the
Union--nothing is more cett in than
this. Also, there is'do dlbpoition

ness of fr3e labor, and ' .'aokno*l.

bit terest democrat L have avt in the
Stste said to me. "We are fortunate
in Ulne thing *hiah I-ittle expected I
at the close of the war ; we hayb the
best laboring force iq, the. world."
He went on to tell we that before the
war he had often to pay, for extra
hands which he bired, from $160 to
$200 a year, two sui's of olothink,
rations and medicine. Now he pays
$13 to $15 per month and a ration.
"And they work just about is well,

That sort of nonsenle has disappeared.
Nor have I anywhere found the
negro shy of speaking his mind on

THE ONLT sOURCS OF DIRORDEB. 0
II do not exaggerate wheo Z say
that the only 4ause.of disorder In the V
State lies in the corruption and
inefllenny of the .tate and parioh I
governments. The eoemrowlse is ac.' 0
cepted by an overwhelming ma'ority v
of the conservative party in good: a
faith. The people hope for an im.
provtment in the administration' U
rud are willing4o, give ithe Governor; t
and the other rulers a fair trial. t
Even Marshal Packard tells we the' d
State is at peace. It has, as ever. A
Southern, and for that matter, every 0
Northern State. has, a propertion of a
lawless and ruManly persons. This 0
class is not numerous, but is compos., fC
ed of idlers, drunkards and braves, '41
who..go armed.j and when a communi. 0
ty Is excited thy ore re dy to eow- r
mit outrages, not only on baoks, but
on whites, even on each other. I was a
touched by the remark of an elderly i
man from a,remote.parlsh. He said: ti
-"The Strte government and the a
courts and officers it gives us are so cl
.nefficient that we have to deal with t
these ruffianly young men ourselves. d
I have suone than one taken my life ,p
in my hand4o o_* erve the pews r4
when the 'Sher was too cowardly or .a
ineffoient to do his duty. We have s'
not had a murderer punished .in our q
parish in five years, except one, and b
ho was pardoned cut of the Poniten.. li
tiary. We live near the Texas line, ti
and desperate men some.and,go,eaal- ha

orderly people we deserve praise h
th it we have kept ne good order as 1]

againuat, the abuses and ineffi'iou.cy of d

spoke the truth. Jit ais a solemn rand o
