A Blo SUIT.-Ex-Governor J.

against the United States before
the Court of Claims for $400,000
alleged to be due by the govern
meut as the value of stock and
produce impresaed by the Federal
army under Gen. Banks d(uriing
its invasion of the Red River Val
ley. Mr. J. U. Doughty, of Wash
ington city, special attorney of
the department of justice and of
the Court of claims, was in Alex
andria last week taking testimony
in the case on the part of the gov
ernment. It is not likely that the
Ex-Governor will encounter any
serious difficulty in establishing
his loyalty to the Union and if his
claim is not barred by the Statute
of limitations, he should be able
to recover the value of the prop
erty actually taken from himt and
converted to the use of the army.

NO SUCH TEST SHOULD BE
A man must be "sound on the
goose"-that is on the 16 to 1 fal
lacy-or he mlst niot expect to re
ceive the support of the silver co
hl,1rts for any otlice whatever. It
mnakes lo dillterenee that he has

crucial test mtust be applied to
him, before he he can be admitted
into the "fold of the faithful" and
he endorsed by the-we had al
most said himt-tallists-1G to 1 cru
saders for any office whatever.
Now, we are unable to perceive
--and we believe that we voice

of fralty should be exacted of a
candidate for District Judge or
indleed frlom any ole who is seek

We have stome good men in this
parish, as indeed in every parish,
who should not be ostracized po

BLACKBUIRN WILL NOT SUC
It must be a source of humilia
tion to Senator Joe Blackburn,
that having "stumped" the entire
State of Kentucky in the attempt
to disseminate the free silver
heresy, his herculean labors have
been more than neutralized by on
ly three speeches of Secretary
Carlisle, as is evidenced by his de
feat in his own district and the
refusal of the State convention to
incorporate a free silver plank in
its platform. Senator Blackburn
will not succeed himself. His un
wise advocacy of free silver and
denunciation of Cleveland and
Carlisle has determined the sena
atorial succession in advance, so
tar as he is individually concern
ed. The Senatorial mantle, soon
to be discarded by him, will adorn
the person of Secretary Carlisle,
if he desires the positionl again.
It not, the Legislature will prob.
ably select as his successor, either
General Buckner or Ex-Governor
M1cCieary. Senator Blackburn is
a genial companion, affaible gen
tleman and in every way entitled to
the large measure of personal pop
ularity which lie has enjoyed, but
he never was and never will be a
statesman. When he entered the
lists against such men as Carlisle,
Buckuer, McCreary and Lindsay,
it was as a contest between a Lil
liputian and Titans and his defeat
A PRESIDENTIAL BOOMLET
It seems to be a diflicult matter
to correctly "size up" Ex-Secreta
ry Whitney on the all absorbing
silver question. When he returned
from Europe, because he happened
to express the opinion that bimetal
lism was growing in favor in that
country anti the time wias not far
distant when the natiobs of conti
nental Europe would be willing to
submit the matter to the arbitra
ment of an international confer
enee, this expression was speedily
seized upon by the Populists and
so-called IDemnocratic 16 to 1 silver
enthusiasts and straightway they
started an embryotic presidential
boom in favor of Mr. Whitney.
But having since learned that
he is only a bimetallist-pure and
simple-they have "dropped him
like hot cakes from the griddle"
and the Whitney "boomlet" has
collapsed about as suddenly as it
sprang. into existence.
-The "sound mnoue3" campaign
is conducted on its merits. These
consist, as the journals state, on
the "sinews of war" furnished by
Wall street. That is a very strong
indication of who expects to be
benelitted by the gold standard.
It is evidently not the wage earn
ers and toilers.-Shreveport Times.
If Wall street is fuirnishing the
"sinews of war" for the "sound
mone~" campaign, which we deny
and challenge lroduction of the
least scintilla of proof to sustain
such an assertion, yet if it were
an actual flct, we can readily im
agine that the silver barons of the
West will contribute to the silver
campaign fund, as they are the
only ones in interest or to be ben
efitted by the adoption of free
coinage. It will certainly be of
no bentfit or advantage to the
people collectively. Is there any
good reason, why, because there
is an overproduction of silver,
that governmental aid should be
invoked to stimulate the price of
tbis article, any more than it should
ble expected or required to enact
such legislation as would have a
tendency to enhance the price of
cotton and wheat, because the sup.

within said limits, is prohibited,

Stewart and Jones and the sil
ver miners generally desire to es.
tablish the silver standard, and to
expel all the gold from the coun
try, because they wish to make a
market for their silver bullion.
They do not care in the least that
this will cost the laboring men of
this country from ten to twenty
billions of their earnings. Their

country in order to get a bribe of
$100. These may safely be treat.

type whom he found in his Inferno;
quadrate passa-glance at them
and go on.
But the mass of those who rally
to the silver banner care nothing
for silver nor yet for gold. What
they wish is a cheap currency.
t The silver miners and their attor
t neys tell them that the Govern
went stamp can add the fifty cents
lacking in the bullion value of the
silver dollar. They admit, and
f are pretty well strengthened in
I the belief that it can add 100 cents
as well as fifty. The winning ele
ment proposes to throw off50 per
cent. of the debts of their allies;
tihse latter, not to be outdone in
geunerosity; propose to throw off
Sth other 50 per cent.
The mining element has the
emost money, but the others have
the numbers. They look on free
silver as only a way station to ir
redeemable paper. It has leaked
t out that the Populists on the Com
.1 mittee on Resolutions at Memplhia
I compelled the othersto strike out
the words "redemption money"
8 from the platform, they being
"agin redemption." They argued
Stlhat there could be no such thing
Sas redemption money, as indeed,
there cannot be when the country
is flooded with irredeemable paper
in quantities so great as to exceed
the resources of the strongest Gov.
ernment to redeem. There was
no iredempltion for the French as.
Ssignats or the Confederate curren
f cy. These are the models which
1 the Polpulists propose for our imi
tation in establishing a currency.
The silver mining interest is in
n significant as compared with the
k other great interests of the coun
e try. The few mine owners have
cm .cumulated large fortunes, and
have a good deal of money to ex
pend in effort to induce the peo.
Splie to ruin themselves to make a
b market for silver. They look to
the advocates of cheap money to
Sheilp them out in this struggle. At
the same time the Republican con
