HOW TO GET UPE A LIE.
A Deputy Ui. S. farsha's Report on
The Cincinnati Commercial, of the
31st, published the following report,
telegraphed from Washington, of one
E. Shearman, a deputy U.S. Marshal,
made to Marshal Wharton at New Or
leans, and to be submitted, along with
other documents, by the President to
the Senate upon the re-assembling o1
that body. It will be seen that Shear
man speaks of men and transactions in
this parish as if he had been here.
Perhaps he has, but we are constrained
to say we did not see the man, or learn
that a man of such fertility of imaglna*
tlon was within our borders. Elimi.
nated of its falsehoods, his report could
be reduced to twenty lines. He was,ac
cording to his own ptatement, a skulker
and a sneak, and of course could flnd
out nothing. But, it is not our purpose
to particularize his misstatements, or
to refute the charges of this hired spy,
but simply to re-produce his paper for
the gratification of a number of people
who are curious to see what the man
Shearman's report really is-and heat
it is, as made to Marshal Wharton:
Sir-In obedience to your instruc
tions, I left the city of New Orleans,
La., on October 22, 1878, arriving al
Delta, via Vicksburg, on the twenty.
fifth instant; called on Mr. Dinkgrav
in reference to the business in hand.
He told me I could accomplish nothing
as the whole northern portion of the
State had been terrorized to such an
extent for months before the election
(by the bulldozing element of the
White League party)and s proven by
the recent murder of Daniel Hill and
Herman Bell, two colored mechanics
of Monroe, who were murdered in Oc
tober because they were Republicans,
as well as numberless others who have
laid their lives down for their princi
ples. Notwithstanding Mr. Dinkgrave's
admonition, I arrived in the city of
Monroe on the third of November, and
went to the Ouachita Hotel, kept by
Mr. Julius Ennemoser, telling him I
had a letter for Judge Ludeling,
which I wished to deliver. He told me
if I was in any manner connected with
politics he would prefer that I would
not stay at his house, but that the son
of the judge would be at the house
some time during the day and he
would inform him that I wished to
speak with him. In the evening I met
the judge's son, and with him called
upon Judge Ludeling. After making
a detour of considerable extent, to
avoid observation, we at length rehched
the home of the Chief Justice of Louisi
ann, and there I found the Judge,
guarded by a few friends, brought to
gether by the common danger which
menaced them, afraid to venture abroad
for fear of being assassinated. Aftei
having read my letter, Judge Ludeling
informed me, as I was subject to his
orders, he ordered me to leave Monroe,
Ouachita parish, Instanter, as I could
accomplish nothing in the presence of
an organized bodyof the White League,
that every stranger who arrived was
watched, and that if my. presence there
was suspected (as it doubtless was) it
would only add to the embarrassment
of their situation, which I soon found
was true, for upon returning to the ho
tel and retiring about 12 p. m., a friend
who had been out visitingsomo friends
called at my rooms and asked me
where I had been. Not wishing to in
form any one of the purpose of my
visit, I replied that I had only strolled
out for a short walk. He replied that
there must be some mistake, as some
gentlemen who called at the residence
where he was visiting stated that a
stranger answering to my description
was seen going and returning from
Judge Ludeling's residence, and told
me to be on my guard while in Mon
roe. I was followed, whenever I ven
tured out, by two men ; one of them I
found out to be named Buck Goodman,
of Richland parish.
The leading spirits In the organized
opposition to constitutional law are
Capts. Theobalds and McLeod, to
gether with Phillips,Judge Slack,Jessie
Warmack and McEnery, brother to
Gov. McEnery. Those men are the
moving spirits of the organized oppo
sition to constitutional law. It is these
men who caused the killing, as I have
been informed, of Daniel Hill, who,
being shot in October, called in a physi
clah, who, upon extracting sixteen
buck-shot from his body, told him, as
others, that he would live, went to his
house at night and killed him in bed,
wounded as he was, and then took his
partner in business, Herman Bell, and
killed him. It was they who caused,
as I am lnformed, the four men inear
cerated in the jail to be taken therefrom
and hanged. Iwasinformed by a per
son (whose name I can give if necesa
ry) who was acquainted with two of
the victims, Beatty antd Brown, and
saw them the morning of the hanging,
after death, that oakum chloroformed
was stuck into their months, and a wit
ness. can be produced who will testify
to a knowledge of some of the persons
who committed this hellish deed. The
person referred to has been informed
that-he will be killed if he says any
thing about It. Bob Logan told a cer
tain person unless they left he would
have them killed, giving as a reason
that the person referred to-knew too
much about the hanging aforesaid.
Having heard that an old man, sixty
years of age, who lived at or near Log
town, a place some distance in the
country, had been very severely beaten
by bulldosers, I hired a horse and rode
out in the country to find the old man.
My search, however, was fruitless, as
he had secreted himself in some out of
the way place to avoid subsequent
visits of the bulldozers. Just as I left
to return I was met by a body of seven
men, who, after passing me, turned
around immediately and followed me
to the city. Before leaving I received
a note telling me to be on my guard,
as the writer overheard a conversation
in which threats against my life were
made. Such are the completeness of
the organization at Monroe, as I am
informed, and have reason to believe,
that any one suspected of being a Re
publican cannot send a telegram or
letter without the contents thereof be
ing known by others than those for
whom the message is Intended. Nota
bly is this the case in the postoffice,
where the clerk, one Morris Hayes,
exercises a general inspection over the
contents of suspected private commu
nications. In conclusion, I beg leave
to state that the condition of the coun
try is such that I found it impossible to
get any information of importance, as
the law-abiding people are afraid to
give any testimony as they would
have to leave their homes as soon as
found out, and those who commit the
greatest crimes are never brought to
trial, especially if the victims happen
to be opposed to the bulldozers.

LOUISIANIA RADICALS FEEDING.
A Gay Old Time-All Serene.
We find in the Louisianian, edited
by Pinchbeck, the following account
of what transpired at a complimentary
dinner given Senator Kellogg in New
Orleans a few days ago. Our readers
rarely ever meet up with intelligence
such as this, and will, probably, be in
terested in reading Pinch's recital, and
Instructed in knowing that all the
leading Radicals are apparently recon
eiled and Jolly. The Louisianlan thus
tells the narrative:
Senator Kellogg was the recipient of
a complimentary dinner last night ten
dered by the Union Club at Antoine's
The affair was in every way a success.
It has seldom been our pleasure to see
a more tastily and elaborately deco
rated table than presented itself to view
when the guests were ushered into the
commodious dining-room used for the
The dinner, accorUing to the invita
tions, was fixed for six o'clock, a little
after which hour Senator Kellogg ar
rived, and the guests, about fifty in
number, were-seated with ex-Governor
Hahn at the head of the table, flanked
on his left by Senator Kellogg, Gov.
Antoine, General Souer, Judge Marks,
Collector Smith and Dr. Roudanez; on
the right by ex-Gov's. Warmoth and
Foote, Col. Lewis, Mr. Joubert, Gene
eral Anderson and Col. Weeks.
Col. Jack Wharton was placed in
charge of the foot of the table with
Judge Dumont and the editor of the
Louisianian, facing each other and sup
porting his wings in company with
Senators Stamps, Harper and Blunt,
Hons. Wm. G. Brown, Desmarlas, In
galls, Morey and others. Besides these
gentlemen, we recognized among the
guest Messrs. 3Bonzano, Shaw, Mer
chant, Casanave, Herwig, Kenner,
Woodward, Judges 1'ardee, Fontelien
The dinner was excellent and well
served, and judging by the way course
after course. disappeared in the capa
cious stomachs of the guests was highly
relished. At the proper time Gov.
Hahn, in his characteristic manner,
alter a highly eulogistic speech, pro
posed the health of ", our distinguished
guest," to which-after it had been
drunk standing--Senator Kellogg re
sponded. le acknowledged in suitable
terms the honor conferred, plead for
harmony and unity among RepublI
cans, and pledged himself to an honest
and faithful discharge of the trusts
committed to his hands. The Senator
was vociferously applauded, and was
followed by Gov. WVarmoth, who made
a very happy and neat speech, in
which he predicted that with Grant as
the national standard bearer in 1880
the Republican party of Louisiana un
der competent and energetic leaders,
and a ticket representing character and
intelligence, would again, as of old,
march to victory. The utterance was
received with enthusiastic applause.
Geov. Foote was the next speaker; he
believed in the supremacy of law and
declared the constitution, as amended,
the most perfect piece of work ever per
formed by man. At the conclusion of
his remarks, Col. Lewis proposed that
the other end of the table be heard
from, and called upon the editor of the
Louislanian,who expressed his pleasure
at witnmssing such a truly representa
tive assemblage. Itremind him of the
early days of reconstruction, and ar
gued well for the future unity and
harmony of Republicans of the State;
he attached special importance to the
presence of Dr. Roudanes, so long a
stranger to such occasions and expressed
the belief tlhat it, more than the pres
ence of any other man, demonstrated
the possibility of Republican unity.
This brought the Doctor to his feet; he
feelingly acknowledged the compli
mentary allusion made to himself, and
spoke at some length ot his aims and
purposes in the early days of recon
struetion which had ever been to elc
vate the oppremed, and to educate and
advance the interest of his down-trod
den people. The Doctor was given the
closest attention and frequently Inter
rupted by applause. At the conclusion
of his remarks he shook hands with
Gov. Warmoth as an evidence of his
desire to let the past be forgotten.
The call for our representativye being
renewed, he resumed his remarks and
stated that no man should make greater
sacrifices for harmony and unity than
he, but admonished his hearers that all
efforts of his and theirs would fail to
accomplish the result, unless accompa
nied by the fraternal feeling which
characterized the early days of the
party. Colored men did not expect
nor desire social equality but they did
expect on all such occasions as these
semLiqo.ial in their character-to re
ceive such considerations as the nature
of the case justly entities them to, and
the recognition of this fact and its ob
servance in the future will enable us to
work harmoniously together.
Judge Dumont was then called for
and made an excellent speech, in which
he declared he would never stand in
the way of unity; his highest ambition
was to serve his party, and if need be
to fall in its defense like Gair and
Speeches were made by Judge Cul
lom, W. B. Merchant, Esq., and
Col. Lewis, also, made a very happy
speech, defended the ins and sympa
thized with the outs.
Col. Jack WVharton closed the speak
ing with an able and eloquent speech
and, at a late hour, the party dis
Almost every day this word is heard
on the streets and in the conversations
of gentlemen who are the leaders of
public opinion and whose views ere
worthy of serious consideration. The
management of the State government,
under its present officials, is anything
but satisfactory. While discontented
murmurs are heard from the best citi
zens almost every day, against those
who control our financial affklrs, this is
not the worst, as the Democratic party
is seriously affected by their conduct.
Unquestionably a large majority of the
people of this parish are in favor of re
ducing the debt or, at least, the Inter
eat thereon, and if the present state of
taxation is kept up, the disposition will
be to scale the debt, or repudiate it
altogether. Such men as Judge Black
man, Capt. Jeffrles, James C. Wise
and others, who have the respect and
confidence of the people, are openly in
favor of reducing the interest on the
bonded debt to one-half of the present
rate. How much further these gentle
men are prepared to go we cannot say,
as they are discreet and look well to
the interest of the State and the people.
The idea that the Board of Liquida
tion is ready and willing to pledge all
the taxes due to the general fund to any
bank which will advance the money
to pay the interest on the bonded debt,
to the exclusion of all other creditors
and constitutional officers, Is unjust
and will not be acquiesced in by the
people. If the State is bankrupt let us
so declare it and settle as this class of
unfortunate debtors usually do. If not,
let the taxes be collected by a strict ad
herence to law, force every one to bear
his burden, and not rob one set of
creditors, who are working for the
State, to pay the interest on a fraudu
lent debt. Before this there has been
an honest division of opinion on the
best method to revise the constitution,
but now all, it seems, are in favor of a
constitutional convention, in order to
rectify the abuses of the government.
The present State government, to say
the least of it, Is weak and does not
meet the wants and demands of the
people. A new deal, without embar
rassing alliances or promises, is the
only hope of change. We say now to
the members elect of the Legislature
that a very short session is expected,
and, if the whole sixty days is con
sumed in useless debate and unneces
sary legislation, that the Democratic
party will be hopelessly injured. Fif
teen days, at the outside, is long
enough to do what is required. Give
way to a constitutional convention that
will have power to repudiate the fraud
ulent debt, or, at least, cut down the

but one man fit to be President, and
he our most distinguished military
chieftain, whose most commendable
quality in civil office was that of ad

without special regard for the general

a third term, we must have him for a
fourth. If he is a necessity to the
country in 1SSO0, he will be indispen

The house of Mr. Wm. Humphrey,
in the second ward of this parish, was
the scene of a terrible tradedy on last
Friday night, which resulted in the
death of a young man named Sims Ste
venson, at the hands of Willian Steven
son, a cousin to the murdered man.
I The former was the son of R. W. Ste
venson, Esq., and the latter a son of
Mr. Sam Stevenson, both residents of
the second ward. A dancing party
was In progress at Mr. Humphrey's
on the night mentioned, at which
were gathered the young people of the
neighborhood, among them the two
Stevensons, between whom a feud of
long standing had existed; they had
not been on speaking terms for several
years. They renewed the quarrel at
this party, and after exchanging a few
harsh words, William Stevenson drew
his pistol and fired two shots at Sims,
both taking effect, causing death in a
few minutes. The murderer fled and
is still at large.-Morehouse Clarion.
On Christmass eve, about 10 o'clock
p. m., upon his return home, Mr. Glon
soulin discovered his wife dead. Mrs.
Gonsoulin was burned to death. Her
remains were so charred and blackened
by the action of the fire, that she could
be scarcely recognised. Mrs. Oonsou
lin had been for many years affected
with fainting spells, and a species of
epileptic fits. She was alone in their
home, near the lower limits of town,
at the time of the burning, her hus
band being up town. It is not known
In what manner she caught fire, nor
whether while sufferring from one of

believing that she had been dead some
time when her husband came and
found a corpse instead of a living wife
whom he had left in the evening. The
fire in the chimney-place was burnt
out except a few coals, there were no
coverlets left of the bed, a pile of ashes
on the floor indicated that the poor
woman may have wrapped herself in
the bed-clothing in order to extinguish
the fire.-&tuga Botowl.
Considerable excitement was created
in our town on Sunday night, about
dark, by the escape from the parish
jail, of one of the prisoners therein con
fined, under sentence of death, for the
I murder of Dr. Jos. Bazee. It appears,
-from what we could learn, that the
two prisoners, who were confined in
f the dungeon of the jail, built a fire of
old rags and other material, which
caused a great deal of smoke. One of
the prisoners, Absolom W. Ford, had,
meanwhile by the use of a plank torn
from the walls of the Jail, managed to
climb up to the upper room of the pris
on. Having concealed himself by the
door, the alarm of fire was given. The
jailers upon opening the door, were
met be a volume of smoke; and believ
ing that there was really danger to the
Inmates of the jail, devoted their whole
attention to the extinguishment of the
fire. Profitting by the occasion, when
all were thus occupied, the prisoner
jumped suddenly from his place of con
cealment, into the crowd standing
about the door; and in the confusion
that ensued, succeeded in making his
escape. The night was so dark that
is was found impossible to follow him,
after the start he had. The sheriff has
sent out deputies, we are informed, to
attempt his recapture; and offers a
reward of $250 for his rccapture.-Cal
NEW ORLEANS, January 6. - The

and C. M. Pegon, of Natchitoches, was

authorizing the Governor to issue a
million and a half new 5:20 bonds to
restore the credit of the State, the
bonds to be sold at par for cash, or
coupons due upon present State consols.
A bill will be introduced to-morrow
