EVERY DEMOCRAT MUST DO
In the regular order of things it is
but intaral to, expc't that every
D)emocrat will do his duty :uln stand

free-form govcernm,,it fro:n central

posed force bill and other dangerous
measures recently introduced by the
Such is the duty devolving upon
all true Dlemocrats at all times, and
more especially at the present time
in the State of LouisIana and the
Fifth CongressionaI district. A
spirit of political insubordination
seems to have taiken entire possession
of quite a number of heretofore con
sistent citizens and clearheaded lead
ers of the people. There is Mr.

nomination for Congress at N'itch

his Ocala platitudes to weary listen
ers, mounting nearly every stump int

without rhyme or reason, evolving 1
fine theories for the relief of humani"
ty impossible to be realized.
The Hon. T. J. Guice is a fair
sample brick from. the new political 1
edifce. Some regard him as thekey- i
stone of its main arches. The Cou

cussion had between Mr. Blanchard I

the Third party was the next speaker
and with his usual stereotyped speech
he haranged the audience with the
cry for more money. Said he favored
the force bill just so he got more
dollars and cents. His speech was
illogical and unconnected,in fact just
auch a speech as only Guice can
There is one feature of the public
talks of these new-fangled notionists
ia which they all heartily agree.
They never fail to abuse and be
smirch the Democracy, nor on the
other hand have they ever been
leard to disclaim against the Repub
licans. There dertainly must be a
sort of tellow-feeling that makes
them wonderous kind to the' central
izing enemies of Democracy, a touch
of political nature that makes the
Thirdites and Republicans all akin,
hence their denunciation of our side
whenever opportunity offers.
Eternal vigilence is the price
of. freedom. From the foregoing it
will be readily seen that it is imper
atively necessary that every Dem
ocrat must do his duty in this cam
palgn, especially in the Fifth Con
gressional district. Some may smile
incredulously and pho-pha the new
organszations as being of little or no
political importance, but we believe
there is a significance in their sur
roundings that should wake up the
most unooncerned Democrattoactive
watchfulness. . Not that the Third
its or the Republicans alone coukt
possibly master the Democracy
there is no fear of that, not in the
least; but is there not a possibility
of their umtig together todefeat the
Democracy? Does not their silence
with regard to the Radicals and their
abuse of the Denmocrats point in that
direction and make it ,pre a prob
ability than a possibility that they
will do so?
We have no wish whatever to
sound a false alarm, but we do earn
estly desire to arrouse our fellow
Democrats to a full sense of the pres
eat situation, so as to prevent even
the possibility of defea6t at the' aud.

As is well ~ own We have outr own
views about; lev s tt hict
have been meat y tntil iun
the colamins bf ih6 ar ,as sioil
offered. but we are not going to in
trade them upon our readers just
now. but rather call attention dircect
ly to the present situation of the
Valley with regard to future over
The extensive inundation on the
Western side of the big river from
Arkansas City to Red river and on
both sides below that point, has done I
much to shake the faith of the inhabi
tants of the Valley in levee protec
tion, which is not to be wondered at
when we bear in mind the many con- I
thlent declarations made in the be
ginning of the year wits regard to 1
the strength of those levees by en
gineers and men of practical levee e
expelricuce. This discouragment and
lack of confidence in levee protection
has been steadily growing ever since
the first break in Arkansas last
spring. Since the water has passed t
away even moving to higher land
where there is no danger, has been
common talk among many of the peo- 1
ple. They seem to have lost confi
dence in the future safety of the val
This is but natural when the locali
ty of the ever recurring crevasse is
so much in doubt year after year,
and the ever increasing height of
the levees has become a fixed fact,
to increase the danger when a cre
vasse does occur.
Without subscribing to the theory
that levees per se are the safe, sure
and only method for protection from
overflow, we must allow that there
are many considerations and exten
uating circumstances connected with
their watery history and repeated
failure. It is but a few years ago 1
since the river during the spring
time was fully sixty miles wide from
the uplands in Mississippi to the
highlands in Louisiana year after i
:ear. Gradually the levees have
oeen extended, increased in height 1
and strength, and the dimensions of 4
the sixty miles wide gradually dimin- I
This work of attempting to confine
the outspread waters has been done
as is well known, under the most ad
verse circumstances, to-wit: Lack of
money. There never has been money
enough for the levees needed. The
Levee Board of "Carroll and Madi
son" before the war borrowed $400,
000 from foreign capitalists and
never paid' a cent of principal or in
terest. Since the war bonds of vari
ous kinds have been negotiated for
levee purposes, and generally at a
heavy discount. To-day the new
Levee Boards recently created by the
Legislature are endeavoring to raise
money on bonds payable by the next
generation, and all this in addition
to the 10 mill tax, five cents an acre
on land and cotton tax, is it any
wonder there has been overflows and
make-shift levees to take dangerous
chances for protection.
So much, and much more could
be said in extenustion of the present
situation of the levee protection, but
through the exertions of tlfughtful
men in authority we learn that slowly
but surely Uncle Sam is getting to
regard the Mississippi river as a
Nationa bighway, and the protection
of the inhabitants of the valley from
its surging waters a National duty.
Already there has been many mon
eys appropriated for the purpose.
Let the good work go on, with plen
ty of money the levees as a sure pro
~eetoto from overflow will be fully
tested, or the school of experience
will teach the scientists that some
thing in addition thereto is needed,
so don't be discouraged.

James G. Clark in the Stockton
(Cal.) Mail. Not far from a
quarter of a century ago the New
York Tribune's editor and fozanler
took Whitelaw Reid into his o ce
and- his heart and became hia helper
and benefactor. Twet.y years ago
this summer Horace Greeley was
nominated by the Republican "lib
erals" and indorsed by the national
Democratic convention at Balti

was just twenty years ahead of his
time. In the goodness of his own
simple, trusting and forgiving heart
he thoLght the era of renewed union
and brotherhood was at hand.
But we all know that he was mis
taken. Both sections were still
nursing the bitter memories of the
war. While Greeley was absent
asking both sides to "join hands
orer the bloody chasm" his old
political friends were censuring him
and deserting his paper, which he
had trusted to the care and editori
al control of his confidential friend,
W hitelaw Reid. The latter, when
he saw that Tribune stock was de
clining, sought out Jay Gould and
borrowed from him-for a consid
eration that has since been made
obvious-sufficient money to give
him a controling interest in the

He supposed his interests safe in
the hands of his trusted friend, and
without waiting to examine into
business matters went directly to
the bedside of his invalid wife and
watched with her day and night-
going without sleep for a week-
until the end.
It was about this time that an
editorial appeared in the Tribune re
viewing the campaign. It was writ

none but the most kindly feelings

and intimate association with Gree

Greeley's grief and mortification, it
was widely copied and credited to
the defeated candidate for the presi

that he greatly regretted its apperr
He sent the correction to. the
office, ordering its prompt publica

sent another message which shared
the fate of the first. He then tot
tered down to the office and up stairs,
where he callel the foreman and
asked him to print the disclaimer in
the next issue.
The foreman answered: "Mr.
Greeley, it is most painful task of
my whole life to tell you that I -am
instructed by Mr. Reid, who has
lately been elected editor-in-chaet 6f

This was the first intimation that
Greeley had received of Reid's trea

gasped for breath as the truth dawn

the depths of an already striaken
and overburnened heart: ",Well, I

A Preventive of Cholera.
Dr. C. P. Stringfleld, of Chicago,
says that the beat preventive of cholera
is "sniphuric acid lemonade." Cholera
he says, is caused by a germ which
must have an alkaline medium iu.
Therefore, if one acidify his system the
cholera cannot thrive in it. To make
the drink ten or fifteen drops of sul
phuric acid are added to a quart of
boiled water, which may be sweetened
and iced to one's taste. This should
be drunk instead of waterasd is harm
less when properly diluted. This acid
has been employed with great advan
tage in epidemics of cholera by Dr.
Curtis in the Philadelphia almahouse
insane department. A very serious
epidemic ceased In twelve hours after
the inmates were all put upon the free
use of asulphuric acid lemonade. The
cnly new ease after this was that of a 1
man who refused to use the prophy
lactic. Two days after the use of sul
phuric acid was stopped two new eases
occured, and the epidemic was again
arrested by the use of sulphurie acid.
In the surgical wards the. acid was
used from the beginning of the epi
demic, and In these wards, although in
no way isolated, the disease failed to
make an appearance -Ex.
