A TEA CUP TEMPEST.
Mr. "Edward Booth, Senator" realizes
the freedom of the press. He publishes
without charge two aud a fraction col
umns of the choicest fustian. This "is
freedom of the press" with a vengeance.
One such dead head contribution a week
would close any journal unless sustained
by "the largest circulation in the South
west." "And pray how was the 'Senator
drest? " Ah he was doing his level best,
to show that Kellogg is guilty of all the
crimes committed since Adams fall. A
list of charges is filed against the Governor
very much like that exhibited by the
colonists against King George, and about
as long as a manifest of the Morgan rail
road, which usually specifies every item
of cargo from a hogshead of sugar to
a hamper of chickens. These charges
are amplified and illustrated by 'pro.
tations, from the proverbs of Johnson, to
the lyrics of Tom Moore. This festoon
ing with flowers the very long lane of two
and a fraction columns, beguiles the time
greatly. Me pass by these vituperative
phrases with the single observation that
the "Edward Booth, Senator," is more
guarded in his epithets than the journal in
which he publishes. He does not once
accuse Governor Kellogg of being
"bribed" or "perjured." True, he im
plies both these charges very strongly,
yet it is done with the gorgeous periphrases
which should distinguish the style sen
atorial, so that the words are in no sense
actionable. The communication con
cludes with a challenge, hut not to the
courts of law or honor. It is that Gover
nor Kellogg shall meet the Senator in a
logomachic conflict, or war of words.
One of the propositions to be
discussed is "that you (Kellogg;
are no Governor.'" Now this we
submit, is just as if Mr. "Edward Booth,
Senator, " should propose to decide by a
game of seven-up that our watch or great
coat does not belong to us. Even if the
challenge could be decided by oratorical
combat and the verdict of the minority,
any one having the least suspicion of
chivalry in his nature would see that Mr.
Booth is staking nothing against some
thing, for which he might be ruled oil the
field by any jockey club whatever.
The tirade of Mr. Booth, however, does
contain by implication one serious charge.
The adroit Senator, aware of the strict
law of libel, puts the charge hypothetical
ly thus:
The otherwise inexplicable conundrum
which is presented to the political student
by your coiubiuations can he solved imme
diately by applying to it the test oi per
sonal. money interest.
If I can imagine you to he a member and
agent of a semi political moneyed ring,
placed where you are. and kept where you
are, for the purpose of depressing values to
their lowest ebb in order that they may he
then purchased by you and your confed
erates, and then further imagine you ail
loaded up at lowest figures with the choicest
properties, lands and securities ol city and
State; and then at an appointed, period re
versing the wheels on the descending grade,
changing the tactics ot the party owned by
your ring, yelling for reform, a white man's
government, immigration, low taxati <n. a
press arranged to stimulate public and pri
vate activity and hope, with experienced
celeritv facing right about and becoming
the most blatant ot reformers and violent
denouncers of those whom you will then
style carpet-baggers and ignoramuses.
Now your "if" is not only as in the days
of Shakespeare, "a great peacemaker,"
but he is a capital fellow on a plea of
nil debet in an action of trespass in the
case for slanderous and defamatory lan
guage used concerning the plaintiff.
This charge is also added in a special
count of the declaration:
i
J
|
I can well understand your present policy,
ami how, without daring openly to avow it.
n are in a conspiracy with others agaimt
the people, to so operate their political
affairs as to reduce their values to a point
approximating twenty-five cents on the
dollar and buy for $25,000,000 or $30,000,000
what is worth four or five times as much
money.
Now the debt of this State has been cut
down by the clause of limitation from
some $40,000,000 to $25,000,000. Can it
be charged that Mr. Kellogg, who has
never held any other State office than that
he now occupies, is responsible for that
debt ? Did he impose the taxes necessary
to meet the interest and liquidate the prin
cipal of this debt? Why, be could even
prove that invaluable plea of Mr. Weller,
senior, an alibi. Who contracted that
debt ? If Senator Booth would speak, he
would say that it received the support of
men of all parties, lie will say from the
record that the representatives of this city
have voted with others to create this
debt. Against the men who were at
the creation of this debt aud these
taxes Senator Booth has not one
word. Two of the most prominent among
those who have sanctioned this debt and
these taxes have received the vote of the
j Fusion Legislature for the highest federal
honors within the gift of a State. One of
; those so honored possessed for four years
past the power to have defeated many of
those items of debt. Senator Booth de
nounces Govern-': Kellogg for having
signed an act to continue the charter of
the Louisiana l. -vcc Company, when he
has no word against him who, by his sig
nature. created the Louisiana Levee Com
pany. Si Mi. Kellogg could not have
incurred or ;-v. ventol that debt, and taxa
tion which will enable "the semi-political
money ring at New York, Wash
ington or Chicago" to buy up Louis
iana at "twenty-five cents on tbe
dollar." This position must have been
prepared for Mr. Keiiogg by the friends
and allies of the Fusion party. Again-'
these, however, a sacred aud significant
senatorial silence is preserved. But Gov
ernor Kellogg enforces the laws against
delinquent taxpayers. Did he pass those,
laws, or suggest or sanction their passage?
He finds them on the statute book, aud
proceeds to do what the law commands
the Governor to do. Wo have heretofore
pointed out that the administrators of the
State government receive but about one
fifth of the amount of taxes collected.
The other four-fifths go to pay the obliga
tions of the State. With the avowed pur
pose of starving out the Kellogg govern
ment the payment of all taxes i.-, re
sisted. This evidently starves out a
good many other people, many of them
bona tide holders of Stats securities—
innocent -ml distant third parties. ilLis
refusal to pay the interest on the
State obligations will depress tneir va.Uc
t
j
j
The reputation of controlling the politics
of the State by virtuous deihonstrations,
will aid in keeping away stranger and dis
courage investment of outside capital.
What could tend better to depress the
value of real estate and produce that mil
lenium of the millionaire which Senator
Booth apprehends? Governor Kellogg
did not then: 1. Make the debtor taxes.
2. Enact the laws for enforcing the collec
tjon of taxes.
Really, if we held as free a pen as the
Senator, and reasoned from such an by
pothetical scaffold as he does, we might
make this syllogism. The friends and
allies of Senator Booth piled up this
ruinous debt aud imposed their oppressive
taxes, thereby subjecting the property of
Louisiana to danger of sacrifice and de
pression of prices. The friends and allies
of Senator Booth refuse to pay this debt
and taxes, thereby exposing the property
of Louisiana to sacrifice at a ruinous de
predation. Therefore, the friends and
allies of Senator Booth are in complicity
with "a semi-political moneyed ring at New
Vork, Washington or Chicago." We make
no such charge, since it is too absurd
but we assure the Senator that it would be
no more unreasonable than the charges,
which he has by inuendo, brought
against Governor Kellogg; let a nolle
prosequi be entered on the indictment
filed on the information of Mr. "Edward
Booth, Senator," against Hon. W. P.
Kellogg, Governor of Louisiana, for al
leged malfeasance in office. The charges
made theeriu appearing too vague and im
probable to be inquired of by a jury, col
ored or otherwise.
a
GOLD WORSHIPERS
The world has always been cursed with
gold worshipers. In olden days a foolish
old king called Midas, who entreated Bac
chus to have everything he touched turned
into- gold, lived to see the folly of his wish,
and since that time many a'gold worshiper
has been brought to grief. A few years
ago the gold worshipers of Wall street be
came intoxicated with the power of gold,
and through it undertook to control the
gov« rument and destinies of the people of
this great nation. They had heard much
of the influence of British gold, and knew
that gold was the controlling power
with the governments of the Old
World, and hence argued it could
be made the great governing power
here. Elated with this grand idea, that
was not only to crown them with great
wealth, but give them control of the gov
eminent, the gold worshipers of Wall
street commenced their fight with the gov
ernment of a free people. Believing they
had cornered the government—in other
words had it in a tight place—they com
menced to run np the price of gold, and
with the aid of foreign influences, inter
ested in the scheme, succeeded in creating
a panic, which they hoped would result
in compelling the government to yield to
the power of gold, and force from it a
financial policy dictated by the gold wor
shipers of this country and Europe; the
men who think gold—and not the people
should control governments. But, for
tunately', the government was neither
frightened nor cornered. It suffered the
gold conspirators, and whoever felt like
bending their knees before the golden
calf, to enter upon their golden specula
tions to their heart's content; and when
the golden budble was at a height most
dazzling to its worshipers, the government
quietly stepped in and pricked it, leaving
them to realize the folly of making gold
their god. Since that memorable day—
known as "Black Friday" among the
gold worshipers of Wall street—when
gold was on the rampage and the gov
ernment forced it to its proper level in the
values of the country, it has not dared to
improperly assert itself. It may be well
to remind the gold worshipers of this aud
other countries that the chief values here
do not consist in gold and silver; here,
where gold and silver are taken from the
#arth in greatest profusion the year round.
We Lave untold values in bur public
lands and in the various products of our
cultivated lands. Our country is capable
of supplying tbe world with food and rai
ment, besides furnishing it with the pre
cious metals, aud its currency—no matter
whether it consists of bank notes or
coin—should be good as gold—and would
be did not the extravagance of our wealthy
classes, who spend much of their time and
money in Europe, help the 1 r kers aud
money-changers in giving a fictitious value
to gold. But there are doubtless other
causes more potent than this which help
to give a higher value to gold over our
currency than could exist without them.
The financial troubles of Europe must be
more or less felt in financial circles of
this country; and when we recollect the
power that gold sways over the govern
ments of Europe we should not be sur
prised to find that power exerting itself in
this country. Gold has again assumed an
aggressive attitude in Wall street, where
there is evidently a combination disposed
to measure strength once more with the
government.
Congressman Kelley, of Pennsylvania,
has recently given liis views on the
present financial situation of the country,
t md they are published in the Philadelphia
j /V'.sv. They were called forth by the fol
lowing editorial para graph, w hich also ,.p
j peered iu the /' e.->
If C m ;r< ss had s 'opted S tr Bu<
iruham'- or even Sena'or SL.wiain's prop
osition, riie | resent would probably be 1
last of the monetary panics that Mr. J.n
Gould oi any one eise could create. In tin
present ease all the citcumstancos favor th -
adroit and unscrupulous speculator.
Mr. Kelley dissents from the above
views. The following is an extract from
his reasons for so doing. Upon Mr. For
ney, of the Press, remarking that he had
not given his reason why the Buckingham
and Sherman propositions would have
been inoperative had they ] assed, Mr.
Keiley replied:
I ihiuk I have already answered that
question when I said that all processes for
compelling resumption must be inopera
tive under the state of f.ict 3 I have de
scribed. I believe that every effort to cre
ate a spasmodic resumption at specie pay
ment oily postpones the day of permanent
resumption. Let me illustrate: I speak
i
Let me illustrate: I
within the bounds ot moderation when I
saj that there are a thousand millions of
our foreign indebtedness which is practi
cally overdue. It is true that our bonds
held by foreigners have not matured, but if
their holders find that by the demand for
gold they can make a larger profit than
they can by holding these bonds, it will be
to their interest to send them to be sold in
the United States maikets, and to draw the
proceeds in gold. Many of these bonds
were bought for fifty cents on the dollar in
greenbacks, and could now be sold at great
profit, and, therefore, looking at the ques
tion commercially, we must regard them as
overdue.
The above extract indicates that the re
sumption of specie payment has some
thing to do with the present flutter in
financial circles.
The Press takes the ground that the
true remedy for the present state of things
has been left by Congress in the hands of
the present Secretary of the Treasury,
Mr. Richardson, and that is the fixing of
the legal tender issue. The Press thinks
he should turn a deaf ear to those who
shriek at expansion, and let loose the
forty-four millions now' in the treasury
Mr. Kelley assents to these views cheer
fully, but regrets that the Secretary had
determined to buy but one million of
bonds this month and to sell six of gold.
He thinks if the Secretary had deter
mined to buy six millions of bonds it
would have relieved our own market by in
creasing the volume of greenbacks, while
the increased price of gold consequent upon
its increasing scarcity would have been felt
only by the importer of foreign merchan
dise, or the wealthy families who are
about to spend a luxurious summer in
European travel. Mr. Kelley also expresses
the opinion that the restriction of the
purchase of bonds tends to promote strin
gency in our market, while the large sale
of specie is iu the line of Secretary McCul
lough, relieving the coming English
pressure.
SOME OF THE BLIGHTING EFFECTS.
Our tax resistors are standing iu their
own light, and injuring their own inter
ests. The damage comes back to them in
the shape of falling prices, caused by the
almost universal stagnation of business.
The interest on the State bonds is not
paid, and hence capitalists want no more
Louisiana investments of any kind. De
positors are drawing down their balances
in our local banks, so that they are left
with nothing but their own capital to
work with. Nearly every work of public
improvement in the State has been sus
pended. The New Orleans, Mobile and
Texas railroad is to he sold for account of
creditors, while St. Louis is pushing the
road from that city to Galveston.
Even our most cherished charitable in
stitutions are left to suffer. The pittance
donated to the Charity Hospital has been
sold in the market at the rate of thirty
cents on the dollar, and the appropriation
for the Insane Asylum has suffered the
same fate. Our judges are unpaid, and
yet we hear of great expectations about
the purity of the judiciary, as though to
half starve a man aud fill his mind with
anxiety for the future of his children was
the way to render judges incorruptible. It
may have a tendency to spur them up to a
prompt and rigid administration of justice
when the time comes to try the tax suits.
We are thus placed iu a false position.
The active opposition to the laws by the
selfish tax resisters, and the passive ac
quiescence in their revolutionary and dis
honest course by those who are too anxious
to stand well wi|h everybody to express
their disapproval, we offer to the world
the appearance of being a community that
is ready to repudiate all its just obliga
tions. Those merchants and bankers who
now lend their countenance to the revolu
tionists are undermining their own busi
ness, aud laying the foundations for their
future bankruptcy. For the time is close
at hand when a city of repudiators will be
avoided by the honorable men in other
parts of the country. Tax resisting is
nullification, and a blight that is drag
ging this fair State down to inevi
table ruin. Next to the spirit of rebel
lion which resorted to secession, it is
the greatest curse that ever afflicted us, 1
and unless it is rooted out, will lead
to the most disastrous consequences.
Already we Lear Lints that tenants will
raise the cry of opposition to rents, and
those paid to the agents of non-residents
are deemed especially burdensome. The
provision of law which protects the tenant
of any delinquent taxpayer from suits at
law is beginning to attract attention, and
will probably cause the formation of asso.
ciations to employ counsel. That a con*
diet between the landloid*and tenant is at
hand there can be no doubt, aud we warn
the weaker party that their safer course is
to avoid it by themselves setting an txum
le of obedience to the laws.
As tve hail reason to expect, one of the
parties charged with taking Judge Rut
land's child out of the vault and thrown g
it in a field, characterizes the charge, so
lar as he is concerned, cs false and mali
cious. Iu nearly all the accounts we have
.-veil from Grant parish, through Fusiou
enure*!., there is an air of improbability
and exaggeration which lias a very suspi
cious appearance. When we are gravely
informed that two peaceable colored men
were killed 1 y Ward and his men. we
simply do not believe the story; wlien we
are told that men who have done nothing
to ox; ite the hostility of the colored peo
ple are compelled to flee from their
homes, which sir.- afterwards sacked
and burned, we are reminded of
••c-.ational romance-, such as abound
iu Beadle's dime novels, and thus ail the
testimony, the good as well as the bad, is
impaired and rejected. The judicial in
vestigation which has been ordered by
the United States authorities will proba
bly bring th.' more important facts to
light.
