"Col. Alexander K. McCGtre,
who is one of Admiral Schley's
closest fieods, is disappointed, yet
he flds comfort in the result of the
court of inquiry, says a Philadelphia
special to the WashingSo,. Post.
TheColonel said : 'The verdict of
the court is no surpise to me. Ad.
mirals Benham and Ramsey were
appointed to the court to. do just
what they have done. They knew
the navy department, which selected
them, wanted to dishonor Schley if
possibly, and they carried out their
part. But their conclusions will
,ot be~aoopted by the people of the
oountry, who are the reaJ judges of
the controversy.'' This is rough
language to use against these men,
who were the mere tools to down
Admiral Sohley.
We publish in another column an
article from tbhe Pioayune in which
it.takesto task the entire press of.
the State for the unkind and unjusant
remarks of the Lake Charles Ameri
can, which we hardly think is fair.
There are very few papers in the
Ltate that has not the very kindest
feeling for our great metropolis,
aund that do. not, on all occasions,
give Noew Orleans all that it de
serves. The oonntry press has, no
Qesire to oripple New Orleans in
ony way, and as one of the pa
pers of the State, the Banier Dem
oorat is always pleased, to
see itse commerce growing, large
elevators beipg erected and other
evidence of thrift and enterprise and
progress. The attack of thqAmeri
oan upon our Congressmen is very
little and ugly to say the least, and
why it sbould feel so sore we esnnot
understand. Already, through the
exertions of the Congressmen of
ouisuiana, millions of dollars has
been spent in secouring deep water at
8abIne pass, which is virtually Lake
Vharlee, besides its ornameetal pub.
lie building. What more then
qould Lake Charle expect? The
American is ungrateful.

The Lake Charles American of re
cent date. hbad the following as one of
its editorial expressions:
,,Speaker Henderson has made tp his
budget of committees. Ranudell is on
the Rivers and Harbors and can look
after the levees antd, Southwess Pass;
Robertson is on the Wa)s and Means
Committee to take care of our beloved
sugar planters; Meyer goes on the Na
val Committee to look after the Gov.
rnuiuent, Naval Station at New Or
leans; Davey. as member of the Com
merce Committee. can safegard the in
terests of New Orleans in the Nicara
gue Canal constructions; Brulard has
already volunteered to look after the
$2.000.000 public building for New
Orleans, and Brazeale can stand
around and be handy in case New Or
leans thinks of anything else she wants.
Everything is arranged for; let the ses
sion of Congress proceed."
It would be difficult for any paper to
say anything more absolutely uncalled
for, ill-natured and wholly unjust. As
for General Meyer, of the" First Louis
tinan District, he entered on his term of
t service in the Fifty-second Congiews,
when it had a )Democratic Speaker.
r Hon. Chas. F. Crisp. Speaker Crisp
5 appointed Mr- Mever on the Commit
tee on Naval Affairs, and he has con
tinued to do able service to the pres
ent time, when he was reappoined as a
matter of form by. the Speaker of the
, Fifty-seventh Congress.
Judge Davey, of the Second Lpuisi
t an District, is now in the Houae for
the fourth time. fie was. appointed
on the Committee on IptersLtate and
I Foreign Commerce by Speaker Reed,
of the Fifty-tifth Congress. and he has
( continued in that posoion; his reap
i" pointment at the. beginning of each
0 succeeding Congesas, up to andi includ
ing the present. has been a matter of
course.
f Mr. Broussard. of the Third Louisl
e iana District, was elected to the Fifty
if:bh Congess. He was appointed on
'bhis entrance into that body on the
ir Committee on Levees. His last reap
I point ment to the same committee up3n
which he had been serving continuous

new comer. His apeoiintmleit on the
Rivers and Harbors Committee is a,
very important one. He takes the
' place of General Catchings. of Missia
sippi, and represents,' as did the Gen
at eral,. the great alluvial region of the
te Mississippi valley, and his appoint
ment is a great compliment, and it is
is hoped it will prove a great boon to
t. Louisiana.

The idra that any of these appoipt
ments was made at the request and de
I? sire of the prople of New Orleans is
II too absurd for the slightest considera
tioni. The carious speakers of the
ia House, some of whom were Democrats

Who will dare to say that the city of
