SIIJ 1OD OR TWO ABOUT STATE
1 Ti
It is the ,elief of a great many peo
0le in Louisiana that since the con- w:
stit.utional convention of 1879 every- pl
thing has bleen lovely with our state t
t, i:'anc':s; that we have paid every '
dollar of indlebtedne.s coutractel byI ge
-L' sne·es'ive legislatures sines 1879, and 1
that. we have money enough to run is
the State qovernzment in every bran-'h. 1,i
A-i d all this within the six mills of at
Itaxation jprovillel by the pIresent tI,
c,',onstittion. It i: likewise believel ,
ed by a great many lpeolhle that every- p;
thing has been .l,1arely and fairly al
adone by the State since the remarka- v,
la hile conven!tilnl to whl:i'h we refer gave I a
LIouis~iana that wondlerful instrument
g which has taxed the ingenuity of an o0
able Supreme court to interpret and :
eltneidate.
Now, these idea.s are all very wrong.
nl and while the BEACox is unnltuably p
oill o...hl to another constitutional con- g
vention at this time, we cannot help fa
calling atten:tion to the fact that all u
is not lovely by any manner of means o
in our State finances. In the first o
islatce, there are something more than
tean & half million dollars of warrants of a
uf- 1884. 1885 and 1886 for which the ii
holders cannot ett a dollar. In other t
Swords, the legislature appropriated t
of for those years a larger sum than the
revenues of the State amounted to, is
anl the result is that we have a con- g
rie iderablle floating indebtedness for I
the which, unless we propose to repudiate,
iomne provision of payment must be c
the ade. a
It is all very well to talk of our c
ti Ilorious condition, but it is not all
r .sunshine by any manner of means.

HIGH-PRICED JUSTICE. WC
Times-Dimoernt.]
The Rnchland RBearn cannot seep Ti,
why Louisiana. with 200,000 less peo
ple than Missisippi, ishould pay four ing
times as much for its judiciary, or dri
$281,000 a year, while our neighbor
gets along with $78.000. The Times- To
SDeimocrat has noted this inequality w
Ilbefore and sought in vain for an ex
' l:lanation. What the lBeacoa says of ,
\Missisýipli is elqually true of all the tior
t neighboring Sta4tes-Alabama, Arkan
I ,as awl Texas and others. Louisiana
- pays more per capita for justice than un
any State of the South, and each ele
- vter is taxcd from five to ten times set
etas much for justice as a citizen of pr,
; Mississiipi or Texas. Nor have we py
n observed that the justice we get is shl
li any better than that dealt out by the col
courts of Mississippi and Texas. bu
We have called in vain for an ex- lea
Y planation of this anomaly, for a sug- feo
gestion of why Louisiana should be cl
P favored with from two to five times as all
II many judges as its neighbors, but no pr
Sone has ever been able to give any sti
;t other explanation of it than politics. pa
n There is no more litigation here, vy
)f and the judges are no harder worked; of
1e indeed, we understand that some of an
'r them complain of an excess of leisure be
d time. no
Le In the matter of the judiciary, Lou- wi
Sisiana seems to be following in the St
'- footsteps of the Empire State, a very al
Or bad example. Only a few days ago a re
B, new batch of police magistrates were ba
e created in New York City with hand- cl
some salaries. It was shown very ea
ir clearly that these new judges were cc
11 not needed, that the exhisting judges
were fully capable of handling all the bi
business coming before them, and, in- cc
1 deed, had but an average of a couple be
of hours' work a day. Per cetre, it is
was demonstrated that Tammany re- w
quired more patronage, and the police ri
justices were accordingly saddled on tl
the tax-payers in order to strengthen A
the faction controlling the politics of re
the metropolis. This is the example fc
which Louisiana seems inclined to tl
imitate, and which it embraces at ci
nearly every session of the Legislature ti
by creating new judgeships to make a
places for politicians. w
We do not expect to see any ex- ec
i planation offered the Richland feacom a
and other Louisiana vapers who want Is
pn to know why justice in this State a
should cost so much more than it to
does elsewhere; nor any claim that it S
m is a superior article to that awarded o
a the people of Mississippi. to
or u
Every week we see patents granted ci
for car-coupling, yet we fail to see ti
p- the practical working of any of them. ti
to The railroads still keep up the old m
ad plan of forcing men in between the tl
cars. Perhaps they think that human E
beings are the cheapest things in the o
es world, and they do not miss it far, e
ar for some are only good to be crushed a
y between the cars, but does not he- d
manity call for a revolution in this
matter?

WOMEN AND MINORS n TAX ELEC
ION I.
Times-Democrat.] of
A correPpondent asks us the follow- Ca
ing question apropos of the coming dei
drainage tax election: any
New Oasscs, La., May 1, 1889. Cr
To the E lilor of The Times-Democrat: del
Pleae state how property-holders who are bel
women or minors can vote or be represeented tic
at the election for the "paying and drainage etE
tax." Have they any right or voice in a ques
tion of such importance to our city?
A Muxa*, With a widowed mother. Vi
Neither minors nor widows can, trt
under any circumstances, vote at this tal
election directly or through a repre- mi
sentative. They may own millions of an
property but they cannot vote on the de
proposition whether their property ho
shall be taxed or not. This is, of
course, a mistake and a gross injustice, WI
but such is the law in Louisiana, at foi
least, for elsewhere this palpable de- th
" fect has been corrected, and where an fa
election is submitted to the tax-payers co
s all taxpayers vote on it directly or by be
1 proxy. Here, however, the law re
stricts the election of property tax- de
payers who are otherwise qualified to
vote under the general election laws
of the State; they must be tax-payers C
f and voters, and to be voters they must
be males over twenty-one years of age,
not insane, not ex-convicts or other- L
- wise disfranchised, and citizens of the
Q State and parish. This disfranchises F
r all women, minors and non-naturalized
i residents. And as there can be no
e ballot by proxy in Louisiana, all these is
- classes lose their votes altogether and a
can take no part whatever in the
e coming election.
s This defect, as we have said, has
e been corrected in nearly all othes b
countries, and remain on the statute al
e books of but a few States besides Lou
t isiana. In twenty-three countries, ti
women owning property in their own N
e right vote at tax elections, in most of r
n them directly; in some few, as in b
n Austria, indirectly by choosing male a
of representatives to cast their ballots
e for them. In Louisiana, however, in ti
o the present status of the law, women
Lt cannot vote at the coming tax elec- v
*e tion; and our correspondent is, with t
:e many others, disfranchised. The ,
world has proclaimed this law un- j
r- equal and unjust, and it has been ,
a modified or changed in nearly all e
it lands. No appeal, however, has been
te made to the Legislature of Louisiana
it to correct it. If the women of the
it State-who desire to participate in tax
d or similar elections, present the mat
ter to the Legislature and show how
universally the principle is now re
d cognized, that those women" who pay
to taxes should vote if they wish to at
a. tax elections, we think that body
.d would place Louisiana in line with
te the rest of the world on this point. ,
a But, as the law now stands, we are
to compelled to reply to our correspond
r, eat, that neither he nor his mother
d can vote directly or indirectly on the ,
a- drainage tax. t

he has not painted with language an
imaginary parish, but bhe has shown
I up Morel oase perish in its true
light; and we feel no hesitancy in
t proving every word that be has writ
ten, to any storm and weather beaten
immigrant who might be attracted
Shere from the northwest by the
gratuitous article which is so much
*,lpreciated by the people of More,

we are unable to give publication to
the article, which would require
more space than we have at our dis

say that the article in its entirely
was a masterly victory of the pens
man, in setting forth facts.-Clarion.
l All that can be said of Morehouse
parish can also be said of Richland
parish, except that Richland has the
> advantage of a railroad running
t- through the centre of the parish from
east to west. Morohouse, however,

>r Dick Hawes, the Birmingham mur
se derer, has been sentenced to hang
July 2nd.
e When ordered to stand up for sen.
tence he arose stiffly, his frame shud
dered and his head was bowed. In
response to the question as to what he
n had to say why sentence should not
be passed upon him Hawes said: "I
don't think I have had a fair trial,
s but if the Supreme court would grant
me another I believe it would dolittle
good." Judge Green then sentenced
Hawes to be hanged on July 2d next.
