A caucus of the Republican meme

day last, called by Representative
('annon, of Illinois, at which the
election suffrage question in the
South was discussed. The Crum
packer bill reducing Southern rep
resentation in Congress, or the Gib
son bill, making stringent regula- I
tions of the election procedure, was
discussed, and no doubt the cauctus
has mapped out what will be done.
The call for the caucus was signed
by eighty Republicans.

A Washington dispatch dated the a
1, says that "Representative Rans- oi
4dell of the committee on rivers and pi
barblers said that he anticipated an t
early report from that cormmittee on re
the rivers and harbors bill. Since p
the close of public hearings, a week Ia
ago to day, the committee has got b
down to work on the consideration
of the bill. Owing to the illness ot
Chairman Burton, however, there
have been only two days of real
work, and in that brief time a dis
ctssion of the general points of the di
hill has been held, and all questions pt
regarding Maine, New Hampshire t
and Massachusetts have been acted p

recommended in the bill under con- in
sideration would compare with that bi
reported last year, Mr. Ranadell bi
aid hIe could form no opinion this et

not be greatly in excess of it. He gl
expressed himself as hopeful that M

EXPELLED FROM THE NEW
For the past thirty years the cot
ton commission firm of H. & C.
Newman has taken rank with the
largest and most popular in New Or- I
leans. Their customers dwelt in
every part of the valley, and the
firm had amased great wealth through 1
ý. what had always been held to be le
gitimate profits. The two brothers
had the finest residences in New Or
leans, and no men were more hon
ored ir. commercial and social life.
at The story of the firm's downfall is .I
thus told in the Picayune of Sunday:
"-For three weeks cotton circles have t
beern agitated by rumors of a scandarl. ii
involving one of the biggest houses in o
a this city. Yesterday the first definite S
Spronotuncemenlt on the matter was g
a- made when the New Orleans Cotton ti
. Exeh:irine posted a notice of the expul- t:
n sion fromn the Exchange of Henry iNew- a
rman and Ilarris Hymian. of the firm of I%
II. & C Newman. Ltd.
-"The ar:nounlcenment crealied no sur- e
e prise, because it has been known for P
some time that acommittee of the Ex- o
ch:lang was investigaiting the matter. t(
a It was believed a week or so ago that if
v the matter had been settled so far' as S
the Exchange was concerned by the re
e resignation of the two membnlers and o
the sale of their stock, but the issuance li
of new certificates to the purchasers of e
new stock was never :nade.

It is scarcely worth while to go inj
deeper into the details of this scand- i m
alous and criminal incident--Col. of
John A. Buckner, of East Carroll, is
known to every one in Vicksburg Es
and so are the circumstances of the me
case. The exposure grew out of the tO
sale of a lot of his cotton by H. &
C. Newman, to W. L. Wells, of this an
city. In a chance and casual con
versation between Messrs. Wells and
Buckner the fact came out that this Ti
cotton bad been sold for one pricte
and o account sale rendered at an
other. Being called upon for an ex- N.
planation, the house, with a fatuity
that seems wonderful, would not of
render it. Thereupon Col. Buckner hot
placed the matter in the hands of a La
lawyer. Calculating from the amount beu
of the lose in this particular case, a o1
bill was made out for a like amount at
on all of Col. Buckner's shipments
for the past ten years. Asettlement jor
was effected for near $20,000. op.
It is with no pleasure that The but
Herald publishes the humiliation and ocr
disgrace of men of previous good re- cor
pute. But there are certain points bee
that call for comment. In the first Th'
place the cotton exchange is to be seC
commended for such summary act- iroi
ion toward one of its leading mem- b
bers. Winle inaction would have wal
been a severe reflection upon the to
exchange, it was a hard sentence, as
and lower sense of duty would have tt
glossed over the dereliction. As to the
Messrs Newman and Hyman, one pro
cannot withhold a certain sympathy
-it is a mnean spirit that rejoices in the
the smirch of character. At the stor
same time the wrong and robbery
they have perpetrated on an old cus- coti
tomer cannot be too strongly repro- C
The turpitude of the case will be con
recognized by all who realize the re- r
lationsabetween a planter and his
factor-relations based solely upon
confideoce and trust. Nobody ever
heard of a planter verifying his ac
count of sale. This exposure may m
have the effect of making the class you
more particular, or inflouencing sales you
in the local markets. In this way an ing
injury may have been done the whole star
cotton trade of New Orleans. To val
avert this as far as possible the cot
ton exchange should go one step
further: Its assistance should be
tendered every customer of H. & C.
Newmoan, in the way of testing their abo
account sales. If this game was less
practiced on Col. Buckner, a planter a ss
who gives close attention to his busi- ano
ness affairs, there can be no doubt trad
that there are others .who have had subj
the same measure. And all of them J.
thould institute inquiry with a view mad
:o recovery. (i
The Herald is right. There should
)e a clean sifting made. If they
ave practieed this thieving tactics
In one planter they have done it on If

on- There is no longer a doubt that the
fe. dream of every progressive man in
is Tensas is to be realized by the build
ty: ing of a trunk line of railroad through
ire the parish from nrth to south; plac
al. bing us in the world; within seven hours
in of New Orleans and twenty hours of
Cite St. Louis; giving us two mails daily;
vas giving us the New Orleans papers on
on the day of publication; attracting capi.
Il- tal and home seecers to our fertile soil
"w- and genial climate and bringing in its
of \vake wealth, progress and new life
The only question now is as to wheth
ur- er St. Joseph and Waterproof, our two
for principal towns, are to be on the line
:x- of the road; Newelton, the only other
er. town in the parish, is on the line. and
at if the road can he induced to build into
as St. Joseph the three towns will have di.
the rest rail communication with each
nd other, for it is almuost certain that if the
ice line runs through St .Joseph it will go
of east of Lake St. Peter and therefore
within a mile or less of Waterproof.
es: Now. the railroad company has
agreed, that if the sum of ten thousand
)i-. dollars is subscribed and a five mill tax
ere for ten years is voted by St. Joseph to
of the road and the town uses its efforts
ble to secure a free eight of way for the
company through the parish, that the
ter line shall go through St. Joseph. The
of town, though recently devastated by
m- fire and temporarily crippled finan
of cially has, with ia seal and progressive
ge spirit most commendable, subscribed
C. the tell thousand dollars and will vote
lid the tax. The only thing remaining to
la- he done to secure the road to St.
In, Joseph. and probably to Waterproof
ad also. is to secure the right of way. The
town appeals to the Police Jury and the
ed people of the parish to aid in this work.
C, It is felt that this is not a matter that
to concers the people of St. Joseph alone,
ot- but that all the people of Teuses have
in, a direct interest in it St. Joseph is
an the parish seat, where 'every citizen
re- nmust coni., as tax-payer, litigant, wit

"It is all very well for women t
be devoted to home, to husanutl nd
children," says one of Philadellhia's
trained nurses in the, Philadelphia
T'nimes, "hut I know wore than one
woman who woui I be better, physi
cally and mentally, it they did ntot
stay in the house so touch. The
stuving indoors' habit is a very in
sidious one; the more you give way
to it the 'ees Inclination you have for
-going out. -ihe result is tthat the
stay-at-home victim becomes neuras
thenic, low-sp.vited, morbid and
irritable. I know women who stay
at home through sheer indolence; 4
they hate to stir out of their rocking
chair and to go to the trouble of get
ting dressed up. Very many women
are kept dindoors on account of the
pressure of domestic duties. and still
others have a dread, more or less ill
founded, of exposure to the weather.
It pays every woman to get out of
the house into the fresh air and sun
light; to take a brisk, long walk.
Street-ats· hwve spoiled women; they
think they must get into a cat to ride
a few hhicki." The art of walking
among city women at least, is rapid
ly becoming a loit art. Woman, ,too,
are all the better mentally for ming
ling among people, getting . into
crowds, seeing new faces auti new
scetes. It is a great deal better for
a woman to let the dust acetnmulate
on the furniture than on herself, and
a- cobwebl had better he in the corner
of the room than on her brain, not
withstandling that cleanliness in a
cardinal dotrine of the nurses (reed.
One of the distressing symptoms of
neurasthenia is a chronic state of
evil forehoding. The victim of nerves
studies herself, her ailments, her
wants, her loneliness, or she is for
ever aItticipating trouble for herself
or for her children. Living so much
within herself, it is for her to fall into
a habit of brooding over troubles,
real or imaginary, often the late,.
This condition of worry not only
works injury to her health. but re
acts upon her disposition, her ideas
become narrow and insular, and she
loses in'terest in and sympathy with
others. 'llThe home is no longer a
pleasant place for anyone within It
and least of all for' the sufferer,
whose unhappy condition mi~lht (al
though she would not probably be
lieve it) be traced to her own mis
