Now that Hampton is firmly s.
tablislhed in South Carolina, public
attention is centred on Louisiana,
a State that has three times repu
diated Ralicatlis51 at the ballot box,
and yet it not is free. The logic of
events, however, and the detormninas
tion of the people no longer to sub
mit to iller-al authority admit of no
doubt that right will in the end
premail. The exact time for the
colpleto recognition of the Nicholls
government cannot be given, though
itseoms not far off.
The Conmmission that went to
New Orleans is accompli ling noth
ing. Nicholls refusos to .sabuiit to
them the question of the legality of
his government, but, claiming that
he is governor de juro, is content to
show the commission that he is also
governor e fiacta. In this ho acts
wisely. No Democrat will over again
suifor a board composed of a majority
of Ropublicans to pass upon his
title. The commissioners are there
fore at their low's end, and they
have tdepiplied to 'Hayes for fur.
