The de facto government of the

Louisiana is rather late in waking 1

The Association of Confederate
Cavalry Veterans heldt their regular
annual meeting in Memorial Hall
at New Orleans last Monday even
ing. There was a large gathering
because it was known fitting men
tion would be made of the late Ran.
dall L. Gibson, who was a promi
nent member of the cam . Among
the leading orators 'a -esteem
'ed friend Col. A . W. Crandell, who
reviewed the life of the great states
man and soldier with touching elo
quence and great depth of feeling.
There had been for many years great
intimacy and much friendship exist
iag between Senator Gibson and
Col. Crandell, and we can well con
eive how out of the fullness of his
saol be taxed his strong intellect
and gret oratorical powers to pay
-to the memory of his dead friend,
as far aposseible a worthy tribute
in the preaee of those scared
veterias who had aceompanied the
e1Meral througb all the trials,
-glow1e and triblalations of the late
THE AMENDMENT COMMISSION.
The concurrent resolution No 88
that passed the Legislature, July
2d, 1892, with -a view to avoid
the expense attendant upon a consti
tutional convention, which the peo.
pie were-then clamoring for, and
which they have been clamoring for
with increasing loudness ever since,
provides, "that the commission
shall be composed of seven mein
hers, two selected by the President
of the senate, from among that
body, three selected by the speaker
from among the members of the
House and two citizens at large to
he selected by the Governor of the
State." Fifteen hundred dollars
has been appropriated to pay the ex
pense that may be incurred by the
commission, or nearly $215 each,
s hich is not by any means an extra.
vagant allowance.
We learn that the selections will
be made during the month of Febrn
ary, so as to allow the commission
ample time to carefully discharge
the duties that will be incumbent
upon them; which is in the language
of the resolution, "for the purpose
of preparing and reporting to the
General Assembly as herein provid
ed proposed amendments to the con
stitution of the State."
This duty will be an arduous one
requiring much breath of thought
and experience, particularly in put
ting the amendments, required in
proper shal:e to be adopted by the
Legishature and thereafter submit
ted to the people.
Among the many things that
need amending constitutionally, the
judiciary, suffrage and almost un
limited appointing power of the
Governor, stand out prominently as
req uiring immediate attenition.
The financial condition of our
Stte demands that the judiciary
system should be reorganized, and
the numerous fifth wheels in that
department dispensed with, while
many other reforms are practicable
that would be more than satisfacto
ry to the Bench, attorneys and
clients. In truth, the whole system
should be brought down to a strict
business basis, where the officials
would render value received in
services for the compensation they
receive. This department is strictly
a matter for the £ttention of liber
ally educated judicial minds of
which there seems an ample supply
in our State from which to select
the few commissioners required.
The suffrage situation as far as
the river parishes are concerned, is
the most perplexing one we have to
deal with.
The sudden, arbitrary and politi
cal enfranchizement of the black
man, in the midst of his stolid ignor
ance, is yet bearing its baneful
: fruit, while the Republics:rs then in
control of the government, failed
entirely to realize their expectations
in the premises, have left a legacy
of discontent and dissatisfaction be
hind them that is very difficult to
dispose of. Indeed this legacy is
the pri:;cipal stnmbling block in tihe
way of fair elections. It gave rise
to the now stereotyped expression,
"a fair election and a free count."
The black man's right of suffrag.
cannot be questioned. The consti
tution of the United States has con
fered it on him, right or wrong,
but the remedy for the outrageous
evil rests with the States, in pro id
inSag and requiring thie necessary
qualifications for the exercise of that
right, let it be educational or other
wise. On the question of amendi~,i
the suffrage, the commission will
find its work right here. It is true,
that in the event of an educational
qualification many white persons of
known worth may be debarred the
right of suffrage; it will be their
misfortune, and in some instances
perhaps their own fault; but thedes
perate disease that has attacked the
sacred right of suffrage requires a
desperate remedy, and while the edu
cational requirements suggested may
be considered bv some persons that
kind of a remedy, its future result
will be generally beneficial by giv
ing a fresh impetus to learning
among the white and black inhabit
- ants of the state. This done, close
uupon its heels will follow the abol.
ishment of the monstrous monopoly
Snow exercised (and enjoyed?) by the
Governor of our state in appointing
I odicials in almost every department,
Sthe'seleition of whom for public
Sduties belong by right to the peo
Lple. This order of things has pre
rvailed for neatly twelve years- it
,certainly sprang trom the numerical
dominance of the darkies in certain
Sportions of the state where they
, had attempted and in some Instan
ea esucceeded, in getting eontrol of
a public afftairs.n
This immense appointiag power
. in tie bands of the governor is a
great evil and while it has prevented
negro. asendency in public affairs
ih some localities. it has been sadly
abused.in the years gone by the
deputy Governors (favorites) iznthe
several parishes. The parents heads
of families are bound to know'who1
in their respective parishes are the
most fitting citizens to constitute 4
board to control the important edu
cational matters for their children.
t 'he tax payers on the same grounds
t should know best who are the most
cr omlkent men to fill the positions
a of police jurors from the several
wards to carry on the parish Legsi
e lation, and indeed it is their inher
ent right as snffragaus to make the 4
selections, and the sooner this right
e is wiselv restored to the people to l
whom it belongs the sooner corrup
tion, fraud and double dealing will 1
disappear from the voting precincts I
of our State.
AN EASY WAY OUT.
t We have watched with much inter
est the course of the Louisiana Sena
tors in the matter of the anti option
bill; without pretending to pronounce
pro or con as to the moral or inmoral
feature attendant upon "'denling in
futures,' 'we are free to criticize
the changed relationship of our Unit
ed States Senators with the question
of gambling per se.
It will be readily remembered that
while the faction fight among the
Democracy of this state was on a
short time ago, Senator White
and the then state Senator, Hon. Don
Caffrey, called into action all their
publicly acknowledged oratorical
powers to denounce the great "octo
e pus" ycleped the Lousiana Lottery
Company, and now, lo and behold,
they are antagonizing the anti option
r bill in the highest law making as
r semblage of the Nation. We up
here in the skirts of the woods natu
t rally ask: Why is this thusly?
e What has become of the great moral
e movement that agitated the state of
- Louisiana and the entire govcrnmcnt
I and people, such a short time ago?
I Well, well, another instance showing
t much depends upon whose ox is
s being gored. The faction ascendant
1 opposed the lottery on moral grounds
4 in this state successfully, invoking
f the aid of the general government,
brought all their batteries to bear
f and won-no matter how; but now
when gambling in cotton futures, or
t options is to be made unlawful by
the same lawmaking power they say
s no, forget their previous moral cru
Ssade and fall back upon the doctrine
of states rights, finding it the only
and
AN EASY WAY OCT
of the dilema in which they are
placed, regardless of all the laws of
iconsi cy.
We ve no desire whatever to
place the talented representatives of
this State in the United States Senate
in a false posititon, or even 9barge
them with inconsistency; but when
we compare their course with that of
our Representative from this district
Sin the Hall of Congress, in regard to
Sthe whole matter, we are bound to
' award the Hon C. J. Roatner with
Sthe credit of having been consistent
from Alpha to Omeaga, from A to
izzardl. Mr. Boatner opposedl the
anti lottery law in Congress, behlev
ing it, as it certainly was, unconsti
tutional. HIe opposes the anti option
s law on the same grounds, while our i
- present Senators were in favor of the
I anti lottery postal law and took an
t active part in promoting its success,
Son the grounds that the lottery was a
Sgambling business that ought not to
I be tolerated, but now gambling in
futures ceases to be immoral as far
I as the senators are concerned, and
f they claim that the anti option bill is
unconstitutional. Mr. Boatner aver
r red that both bills were unconstitu
a tional. Our Senators says that only
Sone is. Truly an easy way out at
the expense of their moral consist
ency.
Who will flunally be made Secre
Y tary of State is still, from all accounts,
,t I very open question, but the lhknu
t cratic Senators are gradually making
up their minds that the President will
- ultimately invite ex-Senator Eustia, of
g Louisiana, to assume charge of that
L- department. There is no question of
Mr. Eussis' ability and qualifications
e for the poet. As a member of the
I. Foreign Relations Comniitee of the
Senate he devoted mure time to a
Sstudy of the foreign relations, treaties,
e policies of this Government and its
g relations with foreign Governments
than any mani in the body. In fact,
so far as ability is concerned, every
e body concedes that Mr. Eustis' ap
°-pointmrent would be almost ideal.

A Wondirful InveUtion.
Mr. Walter Johnson, of Mansfeld,
DeSoto parish, was In the city day be
fore yesterday and gave the Times re
porter a description ofa wodtertal in
vention made by Mr. Robert King, an
Iowa manl, who has been a residest of
the Southern States for some years
past.
Mr. King is a machinist of ap inven
tive turu of mind, and conceived the
idea of devising an appliance that
would do away with the expensive
and dangerous brush used for remov
ing cotton from lthe revolving gin
saws during the process of ginning.
The brush has to be driven at a high
rate of speed to accomplish its work.
This great speed often produces fric
lion to such a degree that combustion
sometimes takes place, and gin and
giuhonse is almost certain to be de
stroyed.
After many experiments Mr. King
invented a cheap and simple device
for removing the cotton from the saws
by currents of air, driven throgh a
four-inch tin cylinder placed Just
above the saws. This cylinder can be
made of any length desired to fit any
sized gin. Projecting from the tin
cylinder are small tin tubes, one for
every gin saw. These tubes areso ar
ranged that the curreut of air passing
through them strikes the saw horizon
tally as it revolves and blows the cot
ton trom the saw teeth and out into
the lint room. The air is forced into
the air cylinder and through the tubes
by mean of a rapidly rovolving fan,
the force of the currents of air being
governed by the size of the fan and
the rapidity with which it revolves.
After Mr. King had perfected his
invention and took proper steps to
secure a patent he and Mr. Johnson
removed the brush apparatus from a
gin at Ma!wfield and attached the in
vention of Mr. King, which, for the
lack of a better nume, we will call the
King air gin brush. They then call
ed in as witnesses to the work, lHun.
B. F. Jenkint, A. F. Jackson, Edward
Foster and James Parsons, all of Mans
field, DeSoto parish, and proceeded to
gin a bale of cotton from a very ordi
nary lot of seed cotton. Mr. Johnson
states that the gin, with the new
device, worked to perfection, and that
all who witnessedthe giuning of this
bale are firmily ot the opinion that Mr.
King has perfected a wonderful imn
provement on tihe old method of gin
uing cotton. .The excellence of the
invention eonsists m the fact that it
does away with all danger of fire
from friction and costs only one-third
as much as a brush. It can also be
easily applied to any gin.
The bale of cotton referred to above
was brought to this city day betore
yesterday and eamnplee . " members of
the Board of Trade. tladed better,
accord;ng to Mr. Joi on's opinion;
than the same cotton would have
graded had it. been run through a gin
withl the old-fashioned brush.-Shreve
