The New York World says that
during a recent visit to West Vir -),
ginia, General Fitzhugh Lee met an no
old comrade in arms who regarded a1
him with some disfavor. "What's N
the matter?" asked the General.
'Out with it!" "Well," said the rel
ex-Confederate, "I want to die at Ba
least half an hour before you do. I it"
want to be in the other world when
you arrive there, just to bear what Di
General Juhal Early says when he
sees you in a blue uniform."
The Baton Rouge Advocate says
"the first quarter of the present pr
year brings a magnificent showing fol
for our State finances. The Treas
urer's and Auditor's report to May T`
31st shows: an
Receipts for quarter.. $2,991,892 60 th

This is the finest statement ever w
sent out from these departments. e, T
Governor Ileard's able manage. -E
ment of the State's affairs is respon- t
sible for this magnificent showing. c
It is estimated that the United C
States government has paid to pri- J
vate contractors for the contruction B
of the new navy the sum of $130,
000,000, but this was merely for .
hulls and machinery, and does not m
include the five monitors and ships c
built in government yards. To the G
Crumps alone the government has
pail, in round numbers, $38,000,- E
000 and $25,000,000 to the Newport J
News Company. These firms, it is
said, make a clean profit of $1,000,-.
000 on every first-class battleship p
they build. A
The Kenton (Tenn.) Argus is not J
wrong when it says that all this talk c
of nominating Mr. Bryan for a third 0
time is all rot. Mr. Bryan is all
f right personally, but he has received P
two nominations from his party and a
was overwhelmingly defeated. The A
party should take a practical view a
of the situation. There is no use
going through the slaughter-house
every four years for sentiment. We
believe the Democratic party will
and should select another leader.
Mr. Bryan to the contrary notwith.
The Conoordia Sentinel of Iast
week contains an editorial condemn
ing and oriticising the State en
gineers and the Levee Board in run
m ing a line of levee too near the
town, which if built will throw out
the oil mill and a few other build
ings. The editorial is hardly fair
and just. Every one knows that it
i is not the purpose or wish of the
engineers and levee board to levee
out property except when it is ab
solutely necessary and for the safety
9f larger and more valuable interests
than a mere building or two.
Whole plantations with their dwell- 1
ings, gins and other buildings are
often levied out. Such things have
to be done, and we believe if that
levee is build as laid out by the en
gineers, it will be done only as a
last resort. The engineers, nor the
levee board, should be criticsed for
trying to do their duty to the entire
people of the distriot.
The Baton Rouge Advocate of
Wednesday last contained a scath
ing editorial on the H. & C. New.
man cotton steal and the closed.
mouth of the New Orleans dailies
on the subject. The Advocate
wanted to know why the district at
torney and the courts were not do
ing their sworn duty. The Advo
oate bad'at got good and hot on the
trail antil the announcement was
made that the good Mr. Ourley
thought it was about time to act in
the matter, and to show to the State
that rmosey and influence out no.ice
with him, if the big and pious
dailies did avoid the subject and
failed to copy Sb, of -the articles
from the oesutry papers showing
how the poople felt on the quesmtion.
