THE LABOR: QUESTION. I
Nothiang i or ba been agitated
i~ our con*y u os. than the lIa
bor po tbh lis.hance, it '
-mos to peaos our ablest minds,
how to sole it. Its relation to
capital ought to be one of the
most friesdly characters, yet we
tad them in aotagonism at all
times. Surely no one will deny
but that without labor these is no
prosperity. Capital of itself pro
doesm.thiag, yet i0 ýt all times
raises its plutocratic head and de.
med that labor bow the knee of
an humble sapplaint, sad when
the honest son of toil gives forth
a sign that he has implanted in
his breast, those God given prin
ciples of a right of a free man, he
is at ones set upon a host of lord
ly capitalists, and, if need be, the
strong arm of the Government,
which he has saved by his blood,
and that of his kindred, is called
into requisition to stop his mut
tering of discontent, and, like the
gully ajas, he must submit to the
powers that be. The poet Burns
fully ilstrates this wh he says,
"Why was an independent thought
ere plated is his mind." When
our lawmakers will cease their
hob.abiag with corporatins,
eew up the pookets in the ree of
their coats, keep both hands in
froam and wide cap, make no
ms that do hot bled capital
equally as well as labor, and re
cognise and always keep before
them that admonition of the beet
of all books thatby the swet of
the face a man .ahs live, then
and only then, will capital and la
borgo hand in hrd, and peace
and plenty abound in all the land.

THE 8ILVER PARTY.

euns the ergaimsation g s nil
*er party which will put * nation

appease, how r, that the Popu
lists while orasy o the .ebject of
free coinage are disposed to kick
against the silver party, because
the latter is not wedded to the
Omaha plaosm and wuihes to
throw it overboard and make the
fght solely oa the silver issue.
If the Popelis refuse to combine
with the atraightout silverites
there will be four national tickets
in the feld and the election in
1806 wi be very muooh mixed,
and it is quits probable that the
ote i the electoral sollege will
be so divided that the eleetion of
a Pnssat will be thrown into
the House of eprsenbtatives, and
in tht event the Republican par

A Lesson in Advertising.
The editors who were here from
Kansas, repeatedly stated that they
heard a great deal about Lake
Charles. That they had seen the
advertisements which Mr. J. B.
Watkins had sent out all over the
North, recounting the natural ad
vantages and resources of Lake
When these Westerners landed
in our midst, they knew they
would see a city; they realized be
fore viewing them, the magnitude
of our industries. The theory had
been preached to them; they came
to view the practical side of the
question. The result was that
they were surprised at what they
saw. They had no idea that illus
tration could be surpassed by re
What is the moral to all this?
It must be obvious to the pro
gressive merchant. Keeping ever
lastingly at it, is the only way to
accomplish anything. To let the
people know that you have goods
in your store-that you are in busi
ness, in fact-you must advertise.
If Mr. Watkins had not told the
people of the north what they
could find if they came to Lake
Charles, the ever increasing tide
of immigration would never have
If you do not tell people that
you are in business, how are they
supposed to know? "Oh! they
know," reply some. Know find
lesticks! They may be cognizant
of the fact, yes, but they will, in
nine cases out of ten, go to the
merchants whose advertisement
they see displayed attractively in
a newspaper.-Lake Charles Echo.
A Fair Return or None at All.
The country press is almost un
animous in urging a true and ho
nest election and a correct return.
The cry for a peacable honest
election and a fair count comes
from every quarter of the State,
and if we cannot get it, then let us
dispense with the ballot box and
make kindling wood of it, there
by saving the Parish the expense
of sending deputies to and from
the different precincts to take care
of a thing that does not return the
voice of the people. Every man
is justly and legally entitled to a
free expression, a free vote and a
fair count, and if this is denied
him, then we fail to see where the
glory of boasting in a free coun
t~ry comes in. If a man is denied
the privilege of voting for whom
Ihe pleases no assurance that his
vote will be counted, then what in
the name of common sense is the
use of going through the form and
expense of an election. So far as
we individually are concerned, we
ean stand anything the majority
of our people can, and we would
not have an ofice unless we could
(get it fairly. That is just the kind
of Democratic stufft we are made
of and we hope always to remain
so, even if it takes us to the poor
houase.-Marksville New Enter
