JUDGE S. T. BIAllD, o
The Republiian cau.pnign com- Pr
inittec are going to send out copies Lt
of the new election law together f
with snmple ballots to Republicans ic
throughout the State. i:1
The sound money mten of the Fifth rep
District are talking about putting out
a candidate. This nmiht he a good tl
move to defeat the Democratic nout- be
Inee and elect a Populist. im
Last week in Canton, Ohio, the th
home of McKinley, 300 Republicans j
organized a free silver club and de
clared for Bryan and Sewall. No in
one can become a member of the I'
club unless he has been a life-long I
Republican. Several thousand are
expected become members.. 3
The Natchitoches Enterprise says
that "if Senator Caffery has any re
pride, and we believe that he has, he su
will unhesitatingly resign his ,flice."'
You will be wearing a linen duster
in the month of January when Don- is
hldson Caffery gives, up such a soft "
position as United States Senator. P
He has gone back on his people and II
hi friends, s ho placed him in the po- ri
eition he now holds.
Bryan's tour through New York i
and other States has sickened Mark
Hanna almost nie unto death. No f
nominee of any party has ever be
fore wrought up the enthusiasm that !
Bryan has. his meetings are large- J
ly attended, which shows that 16 to la
is not on the wane as the Republican ti
press would wont to make believe.
The Populists of Morehouse are in
favor of the nomination of Judge A. (t
A. Gunby for Congress. It makes lit- 11
tle difference to the Democrats of the a
Fifth District whether it is Benoit or tl
Gunby who is put up, one is as easy o
beat as the other. No Populist can
go to Congress from the Fifth Dis
trict, and no one knows it better
than the etratic Guuby. a
It only took forty minutes for the
British squadron-to knock the -Zan
zibar palace and the customhouse t:
ui.o smithereens and cause Said 0
Khalid to skip to save his life. The
dispatches say that hundreds of the ii
Khalid's soldiers who were en
trenched inside of the palace were
killed. Tihe Britis government never r
dillydallays in anything it undertakes.
What a difference between that gov
ernment and our great United States. d
Suspension of work on the Kansas
City, Pittsburg and Guif Ralrouad,
building from Shreveport south
throughout Louisiauna and Texas,
has been suspended, throwing three
thousand men and fifteen hundred
teams out of employment. The
caie given by the foreigh capitalists I
for the suspension is the so-called
silver craze and the continued atgita
tion of the financial question ' and
want of couftidence in the future out
look by investors.
Mrs. E. A. Burke, wife of ex
State Treasurer Burke, arriveal in
New Orleans last week from Hon
duras. It is said the Major has be
come quite wealthy in his mining
operations in that country, but that on
account of his health he will have to
leave, and that he will return to New
Orleans shortly. It will be remem
bered that the ex-Treasurer of Lou-1
islana was a defaultcr for thousands
of dollars and skipped to llonduras,
where he has been for the past eight
or ten years.
The Lake Charles Echo says that
Senator Murphy of New York, who,
for years, was chairman of the New
York state democratic committee,
and never conducted but one losing
onampag:, 'and that he predicted a
month i. advance of the election, has
been..tudying the political situation
very carefully, and makes the pre
diotion that no matter how big the
campaign fund Mark Hana has at
hib command the electoral vote of the
empire state will be cast for Bryan
and Sewall. Senator Murphy was

Cotton Press Charges. B
A local cotton factory firm recently T'b
sent out a circular letter to its custum- wli
prs in the conntry, which stated that
they were prepared to handle cotton hban
with superior facilities and at an ex- ado
pedle of not more- than one-half the effe
charges that have heretofore been ;g
made. It was urged in the circular Ft
that this improved condition of affairs Ui
had been brought about by the im
provements made at Port Chalmette. V
and in sntbstantiation of the statement the
the following comparison of charges in C11
the city proper and at Chalmette were ing

SThe Item of differential in compress- am
Sng is claimed to be due to the superior iro
work of the compressing at Chalmette.
Seveal cotton press owners have ni
been seen by a reporter of the Times- the
Democrat relative to the above, and gi1
they pronounce the calculations and tec
comtoparisons as incorrect and entirely ati
mf Iisleading. They stated as a matter
Sof f:act that the charges which would Io
t prevail in this city and Port Chalmette
were practically the same, so far as the pr'
lplanter was concerned, when taking
n into consideration the advantages that fit
sto:'crs of cottonl in the city will have
in the way ot getting their samples on
the market from twelve to twenty-four ao
11 hours in advance o(f those who send the thi
n staple to Port Chalmette.
In support of their position the cot
g ton press people gave out the follow

This, the city compress owners gay,
leaves an apparent difference of only ra
13 cents per bale, which is further re
dluced to 10 cents on cotton sold and in
tldelivered within thirty days after its dt
, receipt. Of this 10 cents it is claimed P
e that only 2 1-2 cents is clharged against dl
the planmter. It is held that this small bi
mt argin of difference is more than off- is
set by the earlier arrival of samples on
the market. With such an uncertain
market has hprevailed for some weeks l"
- past, when the price varied as much as '
$t 1 and $1.50 per day. a differerce of at
twelve hours in reaching the market is m
claimed to be of much more import
ance than 2 1-2 cents per bale. it

I- a circular to police juries calling their pl
at attention to sections 38 and 39 of Act N
137 of 1896, and says: 'I specially

ic made the duty of the police juries of e
- the various parishes throughout the i
SState to establish election precincts for n
v each vward in the parish antd that these I)

that your police jury at the earliest

at precincts of )your parish; that a certer

be attention to the fact that the limited A

tt ions, tickets, etc., makes it absolutely tl
be necessary that this information be fuln

We take pleasure in advising you of
the REDUCTION IN IIANDIANG
CHIARlGES ON COTTON, commenc
ing September first, next. Our City
Presses alive to the necessity of a
reduction jo charges and supported in
their determination by their employees
to do all in their power to revive the
business and increase the receipts of
Cotton at this port, have agreed upon
a rate of FIFTEEN CENTS PER
BALE for DRAYAGE, LABOR and
STORIAGE for the first THIRTY
DAYS, in lieu of the old rate of thirty
tive cents, a reduction of twenty cents
per bale. INSURANCE ON COTTON
IN PRESS will be upon a basis of
ONE "PER CENT. PER ANNUM, half
as much as formerly-or ont a valua
tion of FORTY DOLLARS PER
BALE, EIG ITCENTS FORTHIIRTY
DAYS, instead of sixteen cents.
We wish also to advise you that our
City Presses are now connected by
switch tracks with various railroads,
to expedite the handling of Cotton
and being situated but a short disonce
r from the business portion of the City
-Cotton stored in them is virtually 4
under the immediate surveillance of
the consigners and enabling them to
give their personal attention and pro- H,
teclion to the iotcrests of their cou
stituents,-iu the presses as well as in 0'
their offices. Also an advantage they N
p1 ossess of no small importance, is their
e ability to receive consignments I
e promptly, and furnish samples without
the delay which a greater distance "
from the City might occasion.
e For these reasons we have effected
arrangemetnts with the City presses,
r and thereby we think are acting for Li
e the best interest of those who e'ntrust
us with their consignments of cotton. T
Very truly, r

Mr. Depew's Testimony.
4 It is a matter of record that
Chauncey Depew recently made a
> statement in an address to the effect tl
that "fifty men in these United t
in States have it in their power, by tl
reason of the wealth which they con- c
i5 trol, to come together within twenty
four hours and arrive at an under- o
standing by which every wheel of
)5 trade a~nd co merce may be stopped b
from revolving, every avenue of I1
is trade blocked and every electric key p
struck dumb." .
T The truth of Mr. Depewcs decla. 8
ration Is - emphasized by recent t
e. developments. Less than fifty men
cd in this country, aided by a half e
ti dozen European allies, and by the v
td President of the republic, have sad- i
st died upon this people an interest- t
11 bearing debt, which by the titme it t
is paid, will have robbed the tax- d
payers ot about $400,000,000, a r
s proceeding that is as infamously un- a
s just as if the bioun conspirators had.
of stolen it from the treasury in the I
is middle of the night.
t- The open and shameless confess- e
ion of this robbery has already been e
made by the bond conspirators.t
d lhey know that another bond issue, 1
ir pending the presidental election,
ct would still further inflame the in.
ly di-uation of the people who have T
. been made the victims of the- gold
f conspiracy. In order to stave off
h even an apparent necessity for leec- I
ing the people at this tirne they are
or not only exchalnging gold for green
sc backs without charge for theirt
1,- "patriotism," but they are engaged
st in the farce of importing gold.
tst They hope to win votes by this I
shallow scheme and get their tool
id McKinley in the white house. If
al they succeed, they will have four I
more years in whtch to fleece the 4
Speople and tighten their grip on our I
he public men and on the resources of I
c- the republic.--Atlanta Constitution.
