ahould one of them complain of any Illness,
he is straightway surrounded by a council of
physicians, carried off to some rickety hos

if he keeps well, he lives a solitary and Iso

through fear of catching a germ or two.
Gen. Grant evidently does not possess that
serenity of mind with which the truly great
are endowed. lie has been slighted by a few
British snobs at Toklo, and has the bad taste
to let it be known that he feels hurt at it. Had
he reflected upon the matter he would have
been utterly indifferent. Having met the
Queen in her own country, and having been
received with distinguished honors, he could
well afford to pass unnoticed the ill-natured
action of a few underlings in the far Eait.
The New York lihrald has suddenly come
out very earnestly and bitterly against Til
den, and Is dloing all in its power to (lefeat
his presidential aspirations. It appeals to
John Kelly to save the Democratic party
from Tilden, and thus prevent its defeat.
"You are the only man that can do this, Mr.
Kelly," says the Ilh'ra-ld. "With tact, with
good management, courage and shrewd views,
you can easily carry the State convention.'
And then it winds up with the prophecy and
promise that it this is done, we will have a
Democratic President in 18(0.
There Is some lnternational rivalry shown
just now as to which country has the faistest
railroad trains. Unlike the question of fast
horses and fast boat crews, this superIority
can he accurately determined. England un
doubtedly leads the world In fast railroads,
fifty miles an hour being made botween Lon
don and York; Belgium second with forty
two miles an hour; the average on American
express trains is fsorty; in France thirty-nine
and a half, in Austria twenty-five and in
Switzerland lifteen and( a half. The fastest
time ever made was seventy-two muties an
The Mouth Amerlcan war came to a sudden
halt last mouth for lack of funds. The Peru
vian steamers in Callao could not leave that
harbor because they did not have money i
enough to buy coal, and the Chlllau forces at
Antofagusto could not be transported forward
because they c::ould not pay for the transpor
tation. It is learned, however, that Chili has
lately secured a small loan, andi we may,
therefore, expect a military spurt or two. I
When this money is gone, the opposing ar
mies will return to their present position, six
hundred miles away from each other, andi
starving to death because their governments e
have no credit.
The British campaign In Afghanistan dis- f
played its worst side after the war was over. a
The actual casualties in action were ridicu
lously small, amounting to less than usually Ii
occur in an ordinary skirmish. It was when c
the victorious army was on its return to India a
that the real terrors of the campaign con- t
fronted it. It thus encountered an enemy is
more formidable than the Afghans in the c
Asiatic cholera, which rapidly decimated its c
ranks and against which it was powerless to k
fight. The bare details we have are yet suffi- o
dent to show the force and virulence of the fc
patilence, and its demoralizing effect upon Is
r nzy oan readily be imagined. di

and one Indirect methods of plundering th
people that brought into existence the part:
which has achieved these reforms and whilc
the management of the DEMoronAT has fron
the date of the Fusion, in 1872, labored to keel
together. It is true that during Kellogg's
term the rate of taxation was reduced to 14;
mills, requiring from the taxpayers eact
year about three millions of dollars in direc
taxes, and against which the Democratic
Conservative party can claim in 1880 a differ
ence of two millions of dollars per year say
ing in direct taxes. But the savings by the
general public in the changed condition o
things wrought out by the "machine politics'
of which the 7i'mes complains Is vast In other
i directions as well as in the matter of direci
The cost of assessment is over one hundret
and twenty-five thousand dollars less upon
I the face of the papers, in addition to the fact
that the taxpayer is no longer plundered b3
r blackmailing assessors, and excessive assess
ments have been corrected. In the matter ol
tax collections, fully two hundred thousand
dollars per year is saved to the people In comr
missions alone. Honest and competent men
are appointed to these oflices, and the State
receives the revenue Instead of it being plun
dered by straw bond collectors and question
able compromises. To Illustrate, we note in
one of Auditor Clinton's reports a list of de
faulting collectors in sums amounting to
$179,500, and in another of Auditor Clinton's
reports, in a statement made by Mr. Hill, ex
aminer, and brother-in-law to Mr. Packard,
where the State generously, in one year, "re
mitted in compromise" the following amounts
due by tax collectors:
To Blanchard, of Morehouse . ... $13,126 11
T'o Sitting, of St. Landry......... 19;i24 79
To Judice, of Iberia.............. 4, .1] 52
To Dayries, of Pointe Coupee ... 500 00
Total ............ ........ $37,337 41
And for the same years dellnquencies
brought suits against collectors In the amount
of over twenty thousand dollars.
Then we have the enormous reductions of
expenses to the people in the costs of litiga
tion. Under Radical laws a poor man who
became a delinquent for a tax of ton dollars
became liable for costs, fees, penalties and in
terest, that swelled the bill to fifty or sixty
dollars. The saving to the people direct by
the correction of this abuse alone amounts
throughout the State to over two hundred
thousand dollars per year. We do not won
der at the dissatisfaction expressed by the
organ of the men who reveled upon these
princely pickings during the high carnival of
fraud that reigned in this State for years, and
it seems quite natural that the men and the
party who have deprived them of what was
considered legitimate spoil should come in
for abuse and villiflcation, be sneered at as
"machine politicians," anti dark hints as to
motives he conjured up against them, but the
people anti the Democratic-Conservative
party will not halt in the work before them
until they shall have placed the capstone on
the work of reform by adopting all the
changes recommended by the Convention,
and thus make it imposiblbe in the future for
any set of men to plunder them under the
guise of law.
THE TEHAUNTEPEO ROUTE.
d In an elaborate article of Friday on the sev
a oral routes and plans for safe, rapid and cheap
transit across the isthmus connecting the
Northern and Southern continents of this
h hele isphere, we merely mentioned that of the
t Tehauntepec without entering into any state
meet of the present condition of that project,
to the efforts which were made to execute it,
and to the large Interest and important rela
tions which it bore to our city and commerce.
These should not be lost sight of in the dis
sertations and discussions of the great topic of
lnter-oceanic communications now engaging
,so much of the attention of the commercial
t The Tehuantepec project originated in the
spirit of rdvalry and enterprise brought into
active life and vigor by the great success of
the Panama route, over which went the great
rush of emigration from the Atlantic to the
Pacific shor s. The control of that route fell
into the hands of New York capitalists, which
they exercised to their own enormous profit
and that of the great city of New York.
Thus New York swallowed up all the com
merce and directed the course of all the travel
across the isthmus. The route lay too far to
the south for Xew Orleans to profit by her
only advantage of nearer and shorter line of
sea navigation. This was evidenced by the
Sevventual failure to maintain a line of steam
ships between this eity and Aspinwall, which
was establlshed under favorable auspices. Its
abandonment after a few years' trial trans
- ferred to New York a eomplete monopoly of
all the benefits from this route.
So enormous grew the travel and commerce
by this route, and so oppresive were the
I charges imposed by the moinopolists owning
aund directing it, that the enterprise of capi
talists was earnestly aroused to the need and
inquiry for other more feasible, shorter and
cheat*r routes. The first propoatl of these
competing routes, originated with a tNew Or
leans merchant, who had removed to the city
of Mexico. This was Mr. Edward York,
formerly an alderman, a bank president aLt'd
large merchant of this city, who had been i
driven by one of our periodical financial dis- )
asters to embark his great energy, enterprize
and Intelllgence In a new and remote field.
Mr. York succeeding 4i enlisting the inter
est ant zeal of the great house of IHargous A
Co., English and American bankers, in this
enterprise, a grant in very liberal terms was
olbtained from the government of Mexico for
the right of way through the most Southern
of the Mext,,n States for a canal or railroad
or both, from the shore of the Carribean Sea
to the I'aclllc ( I)an.
The great demand in all such pro,'cts hI
ing to secure a bay or roadetoad on either
side the River Coat zacoalcos was selected as
an eastern tominus of the proposed route;
following this river as far as It was rnavl
gable, the route procteded by the shortest
line to another river which communlicated
with hiti Pacific.
Cmpetent engineers reported that such a
route colld be mruade practicable at far less
cost than either the Panama or Nicaragua
route.s; that the river (oatzacoalcos, with ado
lluate dredging at its mouth, could be ren
tared navigable for ships for over a hundred
miles; that the country through which the
route ran was far healthier, more puoductive
and inhabited by a better race, and in many
respects preferable to the more southern
Ilargous & Co. embarked earnestly and
ardently and with largo exnDendittre In for
warding this enterprise. They enlisted the
zeal and capital of several of our most proml
nent and able citizens in its behalf. These be
came so enthused that a Tehuantepec furore
possessed our whole ptpulation. Thi route
would bring the Pacilec and travel several
hundred miles nearer to our nort, and would
regain the valuable trade which Now York
had snatchedl from us.
There would too, through thile city, he an
Immense saving in the distance in the eastern
and western shores of the travel and trans
portation to and from our Pacific possessions.
Hence the fiery zeal with which many of our
citizens championed this scheme. A company
was organized with a largo capital to carry
out the plan. There were large subscriptions
of stock obtained In thit city. Public meet
ings were hold to stimulate and arouse the
Among others who embarked In the enter
prise was that great lawyer, matchless ora
tor anti indefatigable investigator and stu
dent, J. P. Benjamiti. The acenmulatlons of
his large and lucrative practice were contll
tlently ventured in this project. And his pub
lie addresses and pamphlets were wond(ler
fully able, elaborate anti tffTctlve in exciting
and keeping up the public interest In the
scheme. A corps of experienced engineers
and labor parties, and several large ships,
were dispatched to the Coatzacoalcos. Favor
able reports were made and the enterprise
had assumed a most promising character,
when it was suddenly interrupted by one of
those perixdlical revolutions in Mexico, which
resulted in the ejection of the government
which had made the grant.
At the head of the new government was a
native of the State, through which the Te
huantepoo route had been surveyed. This
was lhinito Juarez, a native of Mexico, who
by force of character, great ability and
strong liberal republican ideas, had managed
to secure the confidence of all classes of the
people, and to overawe the perpetually rest
less and revolutionary chieftains.
Juarez had spent the exilo into which he
had been driven by the preceding rulers of
Mexico in this city.
An old friend and confrere, who kept a ci
gar store, afforded him comfortable quarters
and a generous hospitality. He devoted his
time chiefly to study and the reading of news
papers. lils manners were reserved, his ac
quaintances few, and his intercourse with our
people limited. Among his acquaintances,
however, he enjoyed the society ahd friend
ship of a gentleman, who was worthy of the
esteem and confidence reposed in him by all
who were brought into close Intercourse with
him. This was Emile La Sere, one of the
noblest representatives of the highest traits of
the Creole character. This gentleman, now a
veteran of seventy-six, has for many years
lived in the retirement of his devoted sister's
delightful seaside residence at the Bay of St.
Louis, and although greatly enfeebled by ill
health and old age, retains not a little of that
old fire which once marked his character and
conduct as a political chieftain, a vigorous
champion of any cause in which he might be
engaged, and one of the truest of friends and
most faithful of Democrats. La Sere then
had the management of the (Courie'r, the
I)Democratic organ of the State, and to his edi
torial office his friend, Benito Juarez, was
wont to resort dally to read the newspapers
and chat with his old frlenl Emile. They
were thus drawn close together by mutual
sympathies, temperaments and ideas. They
were of like physical, mental and moral or
ganization. Below the medium size, of agile,
active andt wiry figures, of dark complexion,
piercing black eyes, and of quiet, frank and
When by a turn of the wheel of fortune
lJuarez succeeded to the executive chair, the
friends of the Tehuantepec Company found it
necessary to obtain a renewal or ratification
of their grant from the new government, with
great sagacity La Lere was selected as their
representative and agent.
On his arrival at the City of Mexico he was
greeted with the warmest regar(l and hospi
tality by his old friend Benito. Serious ob
stacles, however, had to be overcome before
he succeeded In reconciling the concession he
had been sent to obtain with Juarez's political
relations and Involvement.
But, to La Sere, throughout his active ca
reer, obstacles were only stimulants of his ir
resistible energles. He finally succeeded and
returned with a full ratiilcation of the grant
to the Tehuantepec Company. This revived
the hopes and operations of the company,
which was about to enter upon the
work with increased vigor and large
resources, when suddenly our own civil
troubles arose, and ripened Into the
fearful war of the sections. Then followed
the financial disasters which disabled Har
gous & Co., the construction of the Pacific
Railway by the national government, the in
vasion of Mexico by France, and the Installa
tion of the ill-fated Maximilllian, and all the
long train of calamities following, and whose
baneful consequences were felt long after
peace had been restored to these States, and
Maximillian had met the unhappy fate of an
During these events the Tehuantepec grant
had passed into the hands of Marshall O.
Roberts, a wealthy ship owner and enter
prising capitalist of New York city. By him
La Sere was again sent to the City of Mexico,
and Juarez, being restored to the executive
chair from which he had been expelled by tbe
French invasion, welcomed him with the
Warmtl of an ancient friend, and again rati-1
fled the grant and promised his influence to
promote Its success.
This was the last action of which any pub
lic mention has appeared respecting the Te
huantepec grant and company. It s18 now
owned by Marshall (). Roberts, of New York.
Time and events have not refuted the argu
ments which were twenty years ago urged
in favor of the suplriot ity of this over
other proposed routes across the isthmus
which separates the two oceans and joins the
two continents. It is certainly tho transit
which would conduce tmost to the commnerce
and growth of Now Orleans.
We cannot concludie this article without a
reference to an incident which occurredi du
ring Butler's occup:ation iof this city in 141;2.
In his search after splecie and the property of
rebels, Butler obtained pos0e5slon of the
vaults of the tank (,f Sam Smith &. Co. There
he discovered a large bank box, inscribed with
the name of .1. P. Benjamin. The box was
taken to Butler and placed upon his table,
and kept to be exhibited to all citizens who
were brought before him to extort confessions
as to their property and deposits, their varl
ous titles, stock, etc.
"Ilere, you see, I have managed to discover
and possess myself of all the property of that
cunning little Jew, whose oily tongue dlld so
much to bring on this war. Here I hold
everything in the world he possesses. It is
full of valuable securities no doubt."
A locksmith was sent for and the box
opened. It was found to be filled with bonds
and certifloates of stock of the Tehauntepec
Company; not another document, bond or
negotiable Instrument could be found in It.
Sore was Butler's astonishment and disgust
at this discovery, and very hearty was the
laughter of Mr. Jienjarnin over the incidents
when related tohim some weeks after in Rich
"And yet." added hoeat a dinner party when
the story was related, "Butler was never
nearer the truth when he said that that box
contained all in the world of any value that I
owned." What Butler over did with th's stock
and honds does not appear in any history we
have ever seen of his extensive manipulations
of the property of proscrlbel rebels.
r- THE BAD LEGISLATION WHICH THE
NEW OONSTITUTION WILL
To Illustrate the value and Importance of
' the lilmitations Imposed by the new constitu
tion on the legislative power we have taken
g the trouble to review the various acts of the
SGeneral Assently embodied In the annual
publilcation of the statutes.
5 In this review we selected the year 1808 as
the initial year, and Included In our rese.trch
e the acts of the LegIslature for the period Am
braced in the administrations of Warmoth
and Kellogg. A careful examination of the
h titles of these acts developed the fact
It that one-half of them would have been pro
hibited by the present constitution. There are
a acts for the relief of individuals, for the erec
- tion of corporations. for the issue of bonds,
a for the remission of penalties, for extra com
o pensation of ofllclals, for amendments of
I charters and the increase of privilee.s of
I onopolists, the creation of jobs and rewards
a for political favorites, acts diverting public
funds previously set aside for special pur
poses, for changes of names, legitimation and
3 emancipation of children, appropriations of
f public funds for other purposes than the sup
port of the State government. Thus of the
two hundred and fourteen acts passed by the
Legislature of 1868 more than a hundred
would fall within some one of the prohibited
classes provided in the new constitution.
In 1869 there were one hundred and thirty
nine published acts. Of these the titles Id
dicate over seventy of impossible acts under
the present constitution. We select as speci
mens a few of these:
An act authorizing the Auditor to employ
An act for the relief of the sheriff and State
tax collector for the parish of I)e Soto.
An act appropriating extra compensation to
employes of the Legislature.
An act authorizing the Auditor to employ
six additional clerks.
An act for the relief of Wm. T. McLean and
Win. M. Holland.
An act for the relief of It. II. Chadburn, di
recting the Auditor to reaudit the claim in
favor of Chadburn for $107,000.
Separate acts for the relief, chiefly public
ofilcials, of more than twenty persons named.
Act to approve the charter for the bridge at
Act ratifying the lease of the L'enitentiary
and authorizing the issue of bonds to the les
Acts for the relief of the sureties of various
sherifft and tax collectors.
Act authorizing a party named to dispose of
his property to his natural children.
Act authorizing another party to disinherit
An act to ratify and confirm certain rights
and privileges granted to John Lockwood by
the City of .Jefferson.
Act for the relief of B. L. Lynch.
Act authorizing corporators to fix the price
of labor paid for the Nicolson pavement and
confirming all contracts for laying the same.
Act to issue bonds to the Mexican Gulf Ship
Act creating the Slaughter-Ihouse 'Cam
Act to exempt certain benevolent life insur
ance companies from payment of license
Actto inerorporate the Industrial and Com
mercial Credit Company.
A et to Incorporate the Mississippi and At
lanticShip Canal Company, so as to connect
the waters of the Mississippi river and the
Gulf of Mexico.
Act relative to sale of a minor's property.
We have selected these from a large num
ber of similar acts in order to illustrate the
character of the legislation that has proved
the source of so much mischief, oppression
and demoralization in our State, and which
will be prevented in the future under the re
strictions of our now constitution.
The acts of 1470 present a still larger array
of special and relief bills, acts of incorpora
tion and grants of monopolies, subscriptions I
to railroad companies, extra compensation to
The regular and extra session of that year
managed to enact 205 acts, of which more than E
a half were of the character described as pro- t
hibited by our new constitution. At the see- C
sion (1871) following, the total of the acts a
passed is not so large as at the two sessions f
of 1870, but out of the number of 10r published B
there is quite as largea proportkionate showing
of special acts, privilege grants, grants of re- 1
lief, extra compensation, acts regulating suc
cession of property in special cases, and the
expatriation of natural children. In 1872
there were ninety-three acts passed; in 1873,
105; in 1874 and 1875, 154, and in 1876, ninety
five acts, with the same proportion of acts
which would be unconstitutional under the
now constitution now presented to the people
Thus we find the acts of the Legislature
during the Rladcal reign in this State, from
18.;8 to 1876, to sum up as follows:
Year. Act,. Ynar. Acts.
1114 ... .. 211J 1872.. ..
189 ........... .. 211 1571 .............. 105
I'l.l... .. 213 7413 .5. ...
1.70 .......... .... 211 74 7 ... . 15
Of the large nullllner of acts of the Legisla
ture during the period named, we venture the
opinion that more than live hundred of them
could not have been enacted under our new
constitution, and are acts of the most objeo
tionable and Injurious character.
