TIHE, CONAVENTION ADVOCAT. 3.
(N. O. l)emocrat.)
A correspondent of the Feliciana SI:N
TINcEL, U. II. I . aco:lsorvativo member
of the Legislature from the Parish of
West Feliciana, we assu.eo, has written
a series of articles to show why the late
Legislature rftusId to call ancoinstitution
al convention. It. hisNumnher 3 R. 11. IR
gets doiwn to lithe merits of the q(testinl
and gives itus two of the mitotives which
intlueiced hint ritld his ftellow nemtihers
in violating the. specific pledges of the
R. If. R. informs his constitients that,
in the first place, the ilmprecssion prevail
edl thalt, the "collvention advocates" were
itilci:ed iby at desire to get rid of Gov.
Nicholls, and in the second place that
these :agitators were bent upion either
repnttliating the State dei i t or reco: struet
ing it, and eleminatiing the .dishonest
portion t hereof. 11. It. JlB.oncedes that
ith co- viention adLvocates disclaimed
these ends; hut at the saite time lie
givei Is to undr.st and that neitherhe nlor
his ;lanti-tonlVelitioli associates believed
the diisclaimnersi of tlmhe onvenltiuion men.
\What reason this gentlemani or his
associates hall to discredit the full and
earilcst protestations of the advocates of
a Conilstitlttionlal convelltio at the last
.ession of the Legislature we cannot.
divine. Ce:tiinly those of is who were
as honorable nmen as lie a:d the other
anti-conventiotnists, and certainly the
political history of tl.e State during -the
past ten years will prove that tlheo "con
venrition advocates" did fully as much.
as any ot her class of mon to destroy the
radical party and redeem the State.
Why the anti-convention men referred
to 'disbelieve our protestations we are
unable to say. But if R. H. . I. may
chargo that the conlvention men were
actuated by a purpose to oust Gov. Nich
olls and attack the State debt, we may
freely charge that the antt-convention
men were actuated by slubserviellcy to
the State administration and a devotion
to the rings, monopolies and bondhold
ers as against the people.
But far be it from us to make any such
charge or intimation. We know that a
number of the members of the Legisla
turo who opposed the call for a constitu
tional convention were actuated by high
and patriotic motives, and amongst this
class of the anti-conventionists we nnm
ber the author of the articles in the Fe
Yet if this gentleman has correctly
interpreted the motives which influeuced
the opposition to a constitutitional con
vention it is high tinme that the people
aroused themselves to the importance of
sending mcen of different views to the
Legislature. We yield to no one in re
spect and admiration of Gov. Nicholls,
and the filesof this paper will show that
it has been the earnest and firm advo
cate of the payment of the State debt as
it now sttands. lint we can never con
cedo that the maintenancle of Gov. Nieli
oils or any other man in office for any
term of yeare is of such importance that,
to guarantee his incumbency. it is wise
to hold the people of the State under
the crushing iftluences of a cousititution
concieved in iniquity and destructive of
our best interests. And neither will we
admit, staunch supporters of the State
debt that we are, that the interests of
the great mass of the people are to be
subordinated to the cowardly and selfish
appreobensions of the holders of State
It is arguimentlla s just such .:s . II. Ri.
pr eseuts against a constitutional con
ventionl which excite thle wrath of the
peopla andt tend to arra thllem against
the administratioin and the state debt.
This is a free country; this is a free peo
ple. The people mlust he trusted or they
mllust be suppressed, and the form and
charactor of thle goverlnment changed. Is
this latter ahlteriative iesessary We be
lieve rot. Then lot the peopll be e heard
and obeyed. All that the conavention
advocates asked itn the last scssion was,
that the question as to whether a coal
stitutional convention should be held or
not be submitted to the people at the
coming election. RI. Hi. R. anad his anti
c9pnventloun asqp.iates. vatod :down- taat .
proposition. \Why? The present consti
tatioa was formed by a convention as
sembled by a military order, and it was
accepted after nearly every decent man
in the state had been disfranchised. Did
not the coople of Louisiana have at least
the right to say, through the ballot-box,
whether or not it was their purpose to
acquiese~ in thaat most d'amnable imposi
tioln It would seem so; and yet a fac
tion of the Democrats in the Legislature
united with the Radicals, black and
white, doclared that the bayonet edict of
ld6iS was a good eng9gh constitution for
Louisiana, and that the people of this
state should not have an opportunity to
officially say whe: her or not they want
ed to frame a constitution of their own.
This was perhaps the most extraordina
ry proceeding of ally legislative body in
a free country oll record. Did the mon
opolies, the office-holders and the stock
gamablers have nothing to do with it?
The business interests of this city nev
er committed a greater error than in giv
ing aid and comfort to this combination
against the people. They cannot do a
wiser thing than to abandon it, and join
with the " convention advocates," and
give their influence to the good meno who
are in the inovellenut to control it in the
illterest of the coiunto: ce and agriculture
of the State. Vie do not accept the prop.
osition that tlho continauance of Gov.
Nicholls or t anuy other man h office is
of paramlount importance to this State.
ulit we do say, and weo know that we
rrrpesoen the views of three-fourths of
the coniveintionists of the State, that we
believe it would lie unjust, imlpolitic and
unwise to disturb the present State guyov
cr1tient'ct. We hlonor land respect the Glov
ernor of Liouiisiana as nitch as any. anti
couvcutionist in the State, and we desire
that lie should servo out the full term of
his otlice, conventtion or 1no. convelntion.
Jupon some0 questiolns of public and party
policy we have dithered with him, but, as
we have said before, we regard him as a
prudent, wise and patriotic Chief Magis
rate who has dione all for the ;eopil that
a IaiI could do unllllder the circtumstances
which surroauded hlimn. These are the
views of the convention men of the State,
and the idle story that they are actuated
by hostility to Gov. Nicholls, and by a
purpose to abridge his tcnuire of office,
ought not toa be again Ingged into this
As to the Sta:le daolt, we will speak as
fully and c-andidly. The pitople of Louis
iana. voted for the ammiendluantts of 1h71
scaling the debt 40 per 'enrt 1111,1 thel ac
ceplted ilth' re';ainiag 1111 per cant is a
binding obligation. They thus entered
inlto a specific contract with the public
to pay the debt upon its present basis,
and they ca:ntot now, in loll.or or justice,
repudiate oan cent of it, or in alnly way
modify or cliauge its status. Under any
and all circumnst:ces the kl)macirat will
maiit:ain the initegrty of the State debt,
and we siunce''rely believe that we reprl
seait the views of the ratiinal 1en11 who

TIlE CONVENTION QUESTION ABLY
A. G., in a communication to the I'atri
ot-Democrat from which we take the
following extract, cleverly "gets away"
with "Enquircr," who essayed to oppose
the convention, through the (colmtlnsof
the Clinton l'attc.hman. Let the people
of NVest Folician ponder these words, and
let them register today their voices in
favor of a new and pure organic law.
Send no man to the State Convention
who is not pledged to the policy of a
Constitutional Convention :
"The last objection urged by "Euqntr
er" for calling a Convention is his fears
that the Convention may fall into the
hands of the radical party. Let us ex
amine this question and see if his fears
are well founded. There is the same
danger that the Legislature may fall into
the hands of the radicals as the Conven
tion may. No more the one than the
other. The members of the next Legis
lature will be elected according to the
new apportionment law, and so would
delegates to a convention. Why should
"Etqusirer" be afraid of one and not of
the other ? In 1872, with a radical Gov
ernor andl every oflice filled with radicals,
the Democratic party triumplhantly car
ried the State. Again, in 1876 with eve
ry office from Supreme Judge and Gov
ernor down to Corner, filledt with radi
eals, we carried the State by more than
eight thousand majority. Will "Et'quir
er" pretend that the Democratic party,
with Governor Nicholls at its head, is
weaker than it was when Woruioth and
Kellogg and federal bayonets ruled the
day I If so, how unmeaning his compli
ments to Governor Nicholls.
In his article to the Watchman, he says
"Governor Nicholls by his great ability,
wonderful coolness a nd forbearance, in
domitable energy and chivalrous courage,
won the fight and gave to Louisiana a
free government." Yet be is afriad to
call a Convention under the Nicholls
government, be cause we are too weak
to risk anything. It seems to us that
now is the time to call a Convention,
for the people to meet and .to blot out
forever that detestable Charter of rights,
called the Constitution of 1868. If Gov
ernor Nicholls possesses that indomitable
energy and chivalrous courage which
"Enquier" has imputed to him, then he
is the man to champion the people's
If in 1876, when a Presidential election
*(aw at stake, the Nicholls banner trium
phed in the face of a thousand bristling
bayonets, what have ee now to fear?
Have we grown weaker and the enemy
grown stronger since that time. "Enquir
er" himself surely will not pretend that
we have lost our strength as a party un
der the Nicholls governmment. Who, we
.esk in conclusion, is it that opposes a
convention. Surely not the people; not
the broken down tax payers, they are
not opposed to it, because it is to their
interest to have a convention. Under
the present constitutidu they are taxed
unnecessarily. MaLny offices should be
abolished entirely, and in the case of
many others the salatics should be re
duced oeo half. The people are almost
in a bankrupt condition. Nearly every
farm has a mortgage upon it, men and
women that never worked a day in their
lives are driven to the fields, to the plow
and to the hoe, to toil for tax money to
pay the royal salaries of men who wear
silk stot kings.
But there is a class who oppose a con
vention. Who are they? Every body
knows who they are! It is" the money
power. The holders of State bonds and
bank stock. The proprietors of charter
ed monopolies. The office holders and
their dependants, or else they are petsons
who never think for themselves, but who
always act with those in power.
As to the proposed amendments to the
constitution we will not discuss them at
the present time. Some of them are good
oenough, but they do not meet the de
mands of the people. The people denuand
a cheap constitution, a cheap govern
mIent, but few offices and the reduction
of taxes to the lowest point. The dis
ease of the people is poverty; and they
must hot be taxed beyond their means to
pIay. If there is any parish in'the State
that should speak out upon these ques
tions in tones of thunder, it is East Felli
cians. Our parish has been a patient
pumslrer under the most galling yoke ever
vore: by a free people. Taxes under the
government of.Kellogg a ero imposed bo
yond the ability ot thie people to pay.
The lhardl earnings and toils of many
were niot sufficient to pay tlhose outrage
ous dcm:ands. Many families sufferedl
for bread in order to save their homies
from the tax gatlherer's Ihanuer. And the
old mortgages rcsting upon their lalnds
tfor the unpaid balances for the taxes nit
der the Kellogg assessmenit will still
m:lako nayac a homle vacant.
''Then away with the constitution of

next man in power. The money power
may be afaid, the office holder may be

but the people are not afraid to call a
convention and to meet the issues of the
hour. They want a now constitution,
