BENTON, LOUISIANA,
THURSDAY, September 24, 1896.
FOU PRESIDENT,
W. J. BRYAN,
OF NEBKASKA.
FOR VICE-PRESIDENT,
ARTHUR SEW ALL,
OF MAINE.
For Congress.
We art' authorized to announce Hon. B. W.
MAKSTON, of Bed River parish. as a candi
date for Congress from the Fourth District,
subject to the action of the Democratic party.
We are authorized to announce Hon. II. W.
OGDEN, of Bossier, as a candidate for re

subject to the action of the Democratic party.
September 24, 1809—27 years ago
to-day—was what is know in financial
circles as "Black Friday." The panic
was caused by the attempt made by
Jay Gould and others to create a
corner in the gold market by buying
up all the gold in the New York banks,
about §15,000,000. For several days
previous to September 24 the value
of gold rose steadily, and the specu
lators aimed to carry it from 144 to
200. On the date named, which was
a Friday, the whole city of New York
was in a perfect ferment, the banks
were rapidly selling and gold was at
162^ and still rising. But in the
midst of the panic it was reported
that Secretary George S. Boutwell,
of the United States Treasury, had
thrown §4,000,000 gold on the mar
ket, and gold at once fell and the
excitement ceased. It is said that
Gould and his partners mado about
§11,000,000 during the panic.
Cotton for Japan. —The New Or
leans Times-Democrat says it is offi
cially announced that Japan will buy
the cotton she needs for her mills in
the Crescent City. A Japanese broker
has been in this country for several
months surveying the field for the
purpose of determining where he can
buy cotton on tho most favorable
terms and of tbo quality needed in
Japan, and has finally decided to
place a large order in New Orleans.
The Japanese trade is already con
siderable, amounting to some 75,000
to 100,000 bales a year, and promises
to steadily increase. "Of couase,"
says the Times-Democrat, "by the
new arrangement New Orleans will
get practically the entire Japanese
business." ___
Gov. Atkinson, of Georgia, gave
notice in ono of bis recent speeches
that it was bis purpose to permit the
law to take its course in capital cases,
uuless such course would be an in
justice to the condemned. In other
words, that "influence" would not
save tho neck of a criminal sentenced
to death, and that cases brought be
fore him would be considered strictly
on their merits. It is the Governor's
belief that if the sentences of the
courts were carried out promptly, and
persons inclined to lawlessness were
fully assured there would be no pros
pect of Executive clemency, there
would be a decrease in crime.
If the gold Democrats favor reform
in the tariff, they are not sincere in
dividing the Democratic party. They
must support the nomiuees of the
party convention at Chicaga to get
tariff reform. Their small band can
not revolutionize all things.
As Thomas Watson meanders down
the middle of the road, everybody is
guessing whether he considers him
self a torchlight parade or a funeral
procession.
A careful study of the electoral
vote tables as compiled by the cam-
paign liars shows that Bryan and
McKinley will both undoubtedly be
elected.

Bryan is not only the man of the
hour, but the man for the next four
years. __
A total of 24,585 patents was is
sued during the past fiscal year.
Yellow fever is prevailing to an
alarming extent in Cuba.
The British lion should go Turkey
hunting.
The Turkish Crisis. —The alarmist
dispatches from Constantinople and
Vienna recently point to a concentra
tion of British warships near the en
trance to the Dardanelles with the
supposed object of forcing their way
to Constantinople. Turkey, it is in
timated, will be assisted by Russia in
resisting the British fleet. A Russian
General is said to be inspecting tbo
the forts of the Dardanelles, and the
Russian squadron in the Black sea is
being prepared for action. In a word,
the use of force by the English will
be met by force and war is seriously
threatened. It is assumed, though
without apparent nuthoiity, that Tur
key is a Russian protectorate, and
that England has resolved to act
alone in punishing the Sultan bv
deposition or otherwise for cruelty
to tho Armenians.
Gen. S. B. Buckner, the nominee
of tho Democratic bolters for Vice
President, is 75 years old and was
born in Hart county, in the southern
part of Kentucky, and still lives in
the log cabin in which he was born.
This log cabin was built by the Gen
eral's father over a hundred years
ago, and the only time he has lived
away from his birthplace was when
he was Governor of his native State.
Gen. Buckner is worth something
over §1,000,000, nearly all of which
is invested in farm lands and real es
tate. Ho is quite a poet, having
written a number of very creditable
verses. He is also a very versatile
writer in prose and has written many
articles on the financial question.—
He is a great Shakespearean scholar
and is reputed to be able to quote
the plays from beginning to end.—
He graduated from AY est Point in
1844, was a Captain in the Mexican
war, and a gallant officer in the Con
federate army, with the rank of Lieu
tonant-General at the close of the
J.
New Members School Borad. —Act

Obituary.
Died, at Benton, La., Sept. 14th,
189G, at the age of nineteen years,
two months and twenty-three days,
Mrs. Mamie Meares Thompson,
daughter of Mrs. N. C. and the late
J. J. Meares, and wife of Mr. W. A.
Thompson, to whom she was mar
ried, May 19, 1S95. Her burial took
place at the Cottage Grove ceme
tery in the midst of a large number
of friends and relatives. According
to her own request, the hymns,
"Nearer, my God, to Thee," ami
"Jesus, Lover of my Soul," both of
which she especially loved, were
sung on that occasion. Tbehourof
death found her trusting in her Re
deemer, and she "passed through
the shadow of death" fearing no evil.
"So He giveth nis beloved sleep."
"Thanks be unto God which giveth
us the victory through our Lord
Jesus Christ."
" Friend alter friend departs;
Who has not lost a friend ?
There is no union here of hearts,
That finds not here an end.
Were this frail world our final rest,
Living or dying none were blest.
Beyond thofiightof time,
Beyoud the reign of death.
There surely is some blessed elimo
Where liie is not a breath ;
Nor life's affections, transient fire.
Whose sparks tty upward and expire.
There is a world above.
Where parting is unknown ;
A long eternity of love.
Found for tlie good alone ;
And faith beholds the dying here.
Translated to that glorious sphere.
Thus star by star declines, 'till all all are
passed away.
As morning high and higher shines, to pure
and perfect day ;
Nor sink those stars in empty night,
But hide themselves in heaven's own light.''
H.
Died,
On Kingston Plantation, Yance
ville, Louisiana, Feb. —, 1895, Todd
Sparford, infant son of T. M. aud
Eugenia Yarborough.
Another family circle has been
broken. Another little rosebud has
been plucked and borne to the Par
adise that poets have sung about,
and pictured so radiant.
Its beauty and fragrance was too
fair for this earth, so death, the
archer, pierced it, and IleaveD
snatched the spirit and bore it away
to realms of bliss and purity, to
join the sweet choir of blest children
above, to be a sparkling diamond in
Jehovah's crown; a bright star to
shine with luster in the courts of
ye
it,
Heaven, where anthems are swelling
through the lofty domes, and gush
ing forth forth in glad sweet echoes.
Snre it would not be wrong to say :
We arc glad that thou hast escaped the
tempter's snares;
Glad that thou hast never breathed tho sin
ner's prayers ;
Glad thou art with the Savior while tender
and young,
For surely by such ought His praises be sung.
A Friend.
