T. N. Adams.
( The Ruston Caligraph, a lottery
paper of most decided views, pays
the following tribute to the worth
of Hon. T. S. Adams, on hearing
'hat he was announced as a candi
date for Governor:
Upright and conscientious, of un
sullied record, brainy, executive and
energetic, and the chief representa
tive of a numerous and worthy class
of Democratic citizens, he stands far
in advance of nominations already
made, and will do honor Jo our
State and people should tlW high
trust be bestowed upon hi=n
Mr. Adams' course as head and
front of the Farmers' Union in oni
State has been marked with justice
and prudence, and his wise counsels
and firm restraint have contributed
in a large measure to the present
organization and power of the
Farmers' Union. For to say it is
without power or force of purpose
would be stating an absurdity, com
posing as it does a lai;ge proportion
of our citizens, -united by fraternal
ties and directed as a unit in the
consummation of purpose. Mr.
Adams has labored hard to keep his
order in our State freefrosi false
screed and schism, and how well he
has succeeded let the record of his
actions in the late Congressional
contests in the Fourth and Fifth dis
tricts show, when he suppressed dis
sension and upheld the success of
the Democratic party, when a few
malcontents, stimulated by wily
politicians, sought to use the order
in a destructive triangle. Louisiana
is Democratic, and in the promulga
tion of these principles all ! frater
nity is forgotten for the time in the
grand Jeffersonian brotherhood.
Mr. Adams is a Democrat, able and!
worthy, and with the unanimous en
dorsement of the bone and sinew of
rour State deserves serious consider
ation at the hands of Louisiana
Democrats.

The Anti-Lottery Mass Meeting.
Wednesday, July 15th, was a red
letter day in the chronology of Ver
milion Parish, for on that day the
sturdy farmers, with their good wives
and rosy-cheeked daughters, from all
sec-ions of the parish, assembled with
the dwellers in the towns and their
families under the inviting shelter of
the umbrageous oaks at Perry's Bridge
in a grand Farmers' Alliance and anti
lottery Democratic union mass meet
ing. Never in its eventful history has
the little town held within her borders
such a large and representative crowd,
numbering as it did over 600.
Howard Hoffpauir was elected presi
dent, with the following vice-presi
dents: Henry Harrington, J. B. Becker,
Lastle Broussard, M. L. Morton, Edwin
Lee, John C. White, George Hayes
and Gus Godchaux.
Julien Mouton, of Lafayette, was the
first speaker. He addressed the audi
ence in eloquent tones in French and
handled the Louisiana Lottery Coma
pany without gloves, clearly demon
strating the utter impossibility of any
Democrat supporting the lottery rev
enue measure without violating the
cardinal principles of the party.
Frofessor C. Vincent, the great Kan
sas Alliance lecturer, followed in a
speech of over two hours in length, in
the course of which he reviewed in a
masterly manner the evils of the money
power and monopolies, together with
the baleful influence they have exerted
in causing tre downfall of nations.
The old fraud, the Louisiana State Lot
tery Company, was flayed to the bone.
Recess rwas taken for dinner, which
was a real roypl old barbecue, with
bear meat as one of the deicacies.
Everyone did ample justice to the bill
of fare.
After dinner Judge 0. C. Mouton de
livered a stirring address in English,
succeeded by one in French, portray
ing in a most= vivid manner the dire
evils which would certainly follow in
the train of the rechartering of the lot
tery company. He closed with an im
passioned appeal to the voters not to
barter away their liberties for a few
paltry lottery dollar.
The committee on resolutions then
presented the lollowing report, which
was unanimously adopted.
Re-affirming our :allegiances to the
doctrines of Democracy as laid down
by Thomas Jeff'rson and Andrew Jack
son; therefore, be it
Resolved; That *b are unalterably
,opposed to all monopolies, which in
evitably tend to the destruction of the
principles of true Democracy. which
are necessarily opposed to the granting
of privileges to the few against the
rights of the many, among whom are
the toiling thousands of the Farmers'
Alliance, which is destined to sweep
from American soil the last vestiges of
monopolistic power.
Resolved, Further, that we specially
denounce the Louisiana Lottery as a
monopoly which is tending to destroy
the sacred rights of citizenship and the
jfinciples upon which are founded our
goveram: nt and civilzation, and as the
grandest scheme of. fraud and corrup
tion ever attempted to be fastened on a
free people; and which is sought to be
effected for the privileges of John A.
Morris apd six unknown confederates.
Resedved, That we bind ourselves to
do our utmeos agplat the rechartering
of the Louisiana. Lattery, which it al
lowed to be rechattered will in, the
course of twenty-five years virtually
enslave the people of our grand old
ate. Be it further ,
Resolved, That we extend our undy
ing gratitude to that no'le Spartan
bdad of LegislatorsIiad the Chief Ex
ecutive of the Stpte for the noble man
ner in which the. te for the welfare,

District Attorney Minos T. Gordy
then proceeded to pay his respects to
the gigantic Morrfs-Herwig-Pinchback
Baldwin gambling monopoly in vigor
ous language and earnestly besought
his hearers to meet. the monster at
every point.
W. B. White made a brief but pointed
speech, in which he warned the people
of the dangers of the political serfdom
that would surely follow the granting
of the lottery charter and the perma
nent incorporation of it into the polit
ical destinies of the State.
The following resolution, offered by
Lastie Broussard, was adopted by ac
clamation:
Resolved, That it is the sense of this
meeting that all voters in the parish of
Vermilion who are opposed to the re
chartering of the Louisiana Lottery
Company should, and are herby solie.
ited to, organize into anti-lottery clubs
or leagues in their respective wards.
The meeting then adjourned.
If published accounts are correct,
Louisiana enjoys one great advan
tage over South Carolina in rice
culture, and that is the cost of pre
paving the land. In South Carolina
it is said to cost $150 to $200 an
acre to prepare a rice field. Here
the cost is but a trifle, even if irriga.
tion is employed.
The production of rice in the
United States has grown from 11,
520,000 lbs in 1865 to 164.200,000
in 1890. The consumption of for
eign rice in this country has in
creased during the same period
from 52,408.760 pounds to 151..
000,000 pounds. So it will be seen
at a glance that, while the con
samption of rice has increased
largely, the home production has
more than kept pace with the de
mand.
