Don't Be Fooled.
The Times-Democrat and other
papers which advocate the lottery,
are now putting the question of ad
option of the revenue amendment as
a choice between higher and lower
taxation, and claim that taxation
will be higher if the amendment is
defeated. The Louisiana Lottery
gives to the State a miserable $40,
000 per anum for the valuable privi
leges which it enjoys. If the amend
ment is defeated it will not be aeces
eary to make op the $40,000 reqgirt
ed for the Charity Hospital. That
sum quadrupled will come in yearly
in the shape of taxes which are now
unpaid and which are not paid be
cause of the existence of the infa
moos concern within the State. Take
the lottery office off every street cor
ner and temptation from the poor
white women and ignorant negroes
and there will be prosperity. The
bills of the groceryman, the botcher,
the baker and the landlord will be
paid. The dry goods merchant will
sell more yards of calico and other
stuffs and the theatres and other pla
ces of amusement will be better pat
ionized. These tradespeople live
with us and their increase of busi.
aess means the employment of more
help. These people keep their mon
ey in New Orans and in Louisiana.
They do not spend millions on a
New York race track or claim citi
zenship in other States. They are
with us and all people in business
in New Orleans will vote against the
revenue amendment, because by do
ing so, they will be able to 4ncrease
their property. The more property
and increase in values, the more tax
es the State will receive. Let the
amount of taxes once increase and
there will be no trouble in decreas
ing the rate of taxatious.
Adopt ihe revenue amendment and
the State is at once in the hands of
the lottery managers and the corrupt
and unscrupulous politicins whom
they favor. They will sqoander the
million and a quarter license, and
put up the rate of taxation, while the
sharks will increase the temptations,
until the people will belong to them
forever-body and soul.
The taxpayer must not be fooled
by the false arguments of the.lottery's
advocates. They know or ought to
know that it is the lottery which
eats up the earnings of the poor and
prevents them paying rents and bills
for the necessaries of life. -Sunday
Sun.
Even the rock-robbed "dark and
bloody ground" of Kentucky has
been invaded by men of decided,
however erroneous, opinions. For
the first time in ever so many years,
the Democratic candidate for Gov
ernor is obeliged to accept his hon
ors at the hands of a minority of the
voters of the grand old common
wealth. At the recent election 289,
177 votes were cast for Governor, of
which John Young Brown (Dem.) re
ceived 144,168, or 49,95 per cent,;
wood (Rep.)' 116,087, or 40,14 per
cent.; Erwin (People's), 25.631. or a
little over 8 per cent., and Harris
(Pro.), 3591, or less than 1& per
cent. Brown's plurality over Wood
is 28,081, but he lacks 842 votes of a
majority over all. The People's par
ty have a very poor showing on the
State ticket in these returns, which
are official.-City Item
Few, if any, lines of business have
made such surprising growth id this
country in the last decade as that of
flower culture. The census shews
from less than-400 in 1870 the
number of florists' estalishments have
increased to 4,659. They are valued
at nearly $40,000,000, and give
employment to 16,847 men and 1,95&
women, who earned in 1890 more
than $8,000,000.
The Parmers Alliance at Marl*
boro county, S. C., has adopted a
resolution pledging its members to
plant no more than ten acres to the
male in 1892, provided the Alliances
of the qcttQa States will do likewise
Plantation Life Before EBmaucle
pation.
The purpose of the author .has
been to portray a civilization now
obsolete, io picture the relation of
mutual attachment and kindness
which in the main bound together
master and slave, and to give this
and further generation soine correct
idea of the noble work done by Son
thern masters and mistresses of all
denominations for the slavation of the
slave.
Born of eslaveheolding parents,
brought up largely upon the planta
tion with little negro children as his
playmates, owning slaves both by in
beritance and marriage, preaching to
them, and up to mid-life associated
with them as master and pastor for
five of the forming years of his min.
istry, through marriage, in intimate
communioh with Rev. Charles Col.
cock Jones, D.D., who might well be
called the "Apostle to the Blacks,"
and the possessor, through this con.
nection, of perhaps the only complete
collection of his reports of the Lib
erty County " Association for the
Religious Instruction of the Ne
groes," and of his writings on the
whole subject, and with a life long in
terest in and attachment to the race,
the author has recognized in these
peculiar qualifications a distinct call
to undertake the work. The' work is
highly recomended by Bishops Gal
leher and Keener and Revs. B. M.
Palmer and W. M. Grier, all prom
inent divine of the South.
The book will be a volume of
about 250 pages, 12mo.; price, $1.25;
printed with clear type on good pa
per, and substantially bound in cloth.
It will be delivered to subscribers
only, at $1.00 per volume, and will
be issued as soon as posbible from
