, TGE BEATrTIE18 DEOLiINATION
Unforthfevte ,. the report of Judge
3eattie's withdrwal front the field ats;
:candidate f Congrosi romn thfs
district is verified by the following
formal letter of deelination
-Taosta7 n cz, Li ,Jane ll I880G,
Hon. Tbeo. Fontelien. Chairman of Repub
lihe Comzjttie, Third Congressional
District:
Bic-O rcumstanees now beyond my
control and unknown to me'at the time
It accepted the do ination, preycpt me
fromt being a canididate for Congjress: to
my opiton it is nostsy for-the Repub
licah party to carry this district-neecs
sary for the party and necessary for the
interests of our great-staple. Under the
present aspect of political affairs, it
would be difienultnot to select a candi
date who would prove stronger ii the
race than myself. -Firmly believing this,
and yielding to what I conceive to be
due to the party and to myself, I have
come to the conclusion above stated.
Through you, I tender to the party my
heartfelt thanks for the unanimous nom
ination given nuder pressure of great
party heat, and promise that all my
power will be put forth to promote the
success of our principles and the election
of Garfield and Arthur.
I respectfully suggest that a conven
tion be at once called to name a candi
date, Very respectfully your obedient
servant, TAYLOR BEATTIE.
There is but one conclusion to be
drawn from this letter concerning the
reason which induced its appearance,
and-this is, that Judge Beattie be
lieves the complications and ill feel
ing resulting from the split in the
party as a State olganization which
occurred on the 24th of May, will so
affect his Congressional candidacy as
to lose to the Republicans, should lie
remain in the field, the only Congres
sional district in the State which they
are reasonably certain of carrying in
the approaching contest.
We are bound to recognize the sin
cerity of the Judge's opinion, and the
spirit of self-sacrifice and devotion to
the interests of the party representing
his political convictiins which is dis
played by his voluntary relinquish
ment of the Congressional nomination
in a Republican district. The motive
which actuated the withdrawal does
him credit as a Republican and a gen
tleman, but we strenuously dissent
from his view of the situation and
contend that he places an exaggera;
ted estimate upon the character and
extent of the opposition that would
be made to his election, It is only
natural that the exciting events of
the 24th of May-the holding of two
State conventions, which sent rival
delegations to Chicago-followed by
a spirited contest between those del
egations for recognition'fromn the na
tional convention, should have engenu
dered considerable bitterness and bad
blood among the leaders of the con -
tending factions, but now that the
heat of this fight has subsided, we can
not presume that sufficient animosity
is cherished by the Republican oppo
nents of Judge Beattie's course in the
contest from which they have emerged
victorious, to lead them to strike a
parricidal blow at the Republican
party by maneuvering to defeat the
one Congressional candidate it has a
favorable prospect of electing in this
State. Even if such a disposition ex
isted, we seriously doubt the willing
ness of any Republican leader or
leaders to assume responsibility for a
movement of this character. The ex
periences and results of the division
and defeat of the Republicans in this
district two years ago will inot be for
gotten, anti their memory will cxer
cise a salutary influence upon any
Republican headers and officials who
might otherwise have the temerity to
engage in a conspiracy to defraudI
their party of the only vestige of vic
tory which remains to be won in this
State by unison and harmony.
IEnlarged and highly colored reports
of Custom-House animosity towards
Judge Beattie have doubtless reached
that gentleman's ears, and similar re
ports concerning his seutiments and
feelings have probably led the officials
of the granite buihling to apprehend
that Judge Beattio would, if elected
to Congress, wage upon them a bitter
and persistent warfare. Beliting
that both sides are laboring under
misapprehension anu misunderstand
ing that can be obviated by the heal
ing influences of time and the exer
cise of a little mutual forbearance
and discretion, we solemnly protest
against the opportunity for success
being sacrificed by a failure to bring
these conciliatory agencies to bear in
the present emergency.
We reiterate our conviction that
Judge Beattie would draw a heavy
vote from the Democratic ranks if he
stands for Congress, and this accession
would wore than compensate for any
possible Republican defection caused
by the machinations of the few msen
who might be disposed to value the
gratification of personal spite above
the achievement of party success.
If the election of Judge Beattie can
be jeopardized by the influence of
such men, there will be far less hope
of carrying the district for any one of
the candidates yet suggested as his
successor. Messrs. Darrall of St. M
rMary, Merchant of Ibkria, Drury of
Assumptiou, Hebert of Iberville, and
Marks and Bentley of Ascension have
been mentioned in this connection.
All of these gentlemen are connected
with faction contests in their respec
tive parishes, or were implicated in
the district complications of 1873, and
the candidacy of any one of them
would almos; inevitably excite faction
jealousies and reopen old sores that
would render success .eevedingly
problematical. Furthermire, inne
of theoe parties cIld iope to reive
a tithe ofeth aeo rvLive tivbnd Dai
ocratic support whicl would be ac
corded to Judge Beaittie; and we hope
`nne will take offense if we suggest
that the Judge also heads the list in
point of ability, fitness and the influ
ence he co- M wield in bebaif of the
material interests of the district.
The 'Cuits peisists in holding and
strenuouslyl advocating the opinion
that the witbhdrawalof JudgeBeattie
is a. party and public ntsfortune that
should be repaired, if possible, by so
liciting' from him a reconsideration of
his letter of declination. The distie
executive committee will meet 'at
Morgan City next Thursday, July 1,
for the purpose of considering Judge
Beattie's letter," and we urge upon
that body the propriety of delaying
the convocation .f another nOmina
ting convention until all reasonable
efforts have been made to bring back
into the field the candidate who re
ceived the spontaneous and unani
mnous vote of the district convention
held in New Orleans so recently as
one month ago yesterday. This as
sembly represented both the so-called
Custom-House and Grant wings of
the party hnd its work met the unan
imous approval of the Republican vo
ters of the district. There is no good
reason why its action should be sub
verted now. On the contrary, every
consideration of sound policy, public
and party interest demands that the
candidate then named shall remain in
the field.
AOXLEN VINDICATED.
We are in receipt of a copy of the
tardy report of the Judiciary Com
mittee of the national House of Rep
resentatives with relation to the
charge made against Mr. Acklen,
member of Congress from this Dis
trict, by his colleague Hon. J. Floyd
King of the Fifth Louisiana District,
and we are not sorry to note the
complete vindication of our member
from the serious imputation which
the affair had cast upon his character.
The gist of the accusation, as most
of our readers will remember, was
that, on the 13th of January last Mr.
Acklen attempted to procure, " un
der pretended authority from Mr.
King, or otherwise, the printing of a
document as a report from the Com
mittee on Foreign Affairs, when in
fact that committee had not agreed
to any such report, or authorized the
same to be made."
We can not spare space for the re
production of the report of the Judi
ciary Committee in its entirety, and
iyideed it is not necessary that we
should do so, since a few brief ex
tracts from the document will serve
every essential purpose. The com
mittee says.
In order that there might be no pre
text on the part of any one for any com
plaint or even suspicion of partiality or
intentional injustice, whatever its con
clusion might be, your committee per
mitted the investigation to take the
widest possible range. Every witness
within reach of the process of the House,
who was supposed to be able to throw
the least light whatever upon the sub
ject, was summoned, and the utmost
latitude allowed in the examination of
each of them, and it is the opinion of
your committee that the summary of
facts, as stated by Mr. Acklen, is not
only consistent with reason, but cor
roborated by the evidence herewith sub
uitted. * *
It is in evidence, moreover, that sev
eral members of the Conunittee on For
eign Affairs were on the floor at the
time, and the idea that any sane man
would rise in their presence an-i boldly
attempt to palm off or ask to have
prig Ad as their report a paper to which
they had never agreed when any or all
of them might have instantly conifronted
hinm with a denial of its authenticity
aid Yxposed the falsehood in the face of
the House and the country, seems to
your comunittee too preposterous to be
entertained for a moment, and it is
equally incredible, without the most
convicing proof, that such an attempt
could have been made even had every
member of the committee been absent at
the time, for it must have been obvious
to any rational mind that a paper thus
surreptitiously published as the report
of a committee could not possibly have
been used or referred to as such without
leading to the exposure of the fraud and
the inevitable disgrace of its perpetra
tor.
Nor have your committee been able to
discover in the evidence the slightest
trace of any rational motive which
could have tempted Mr. Acklen to a pro
ceeding so unnecessary in itself, and so
hazardous to his own reputation either
for personal integrity or common sense.
Your committee would therefore re
spectfully recommend that the matter
be laid on the table and no further ac
tion taken therein.
The suggestion of the committee
was adopted by the House, and thus
ends an unfortunate affair which we,
in corumnon with many of Mr. Acklen's
constituents, were at first blush dis
posed to construe to his disadvantage.
The Sabine Index erroneously at
tributes to the CuiEF the inquiry made
bh the Terreboune Chronicle respect
ing the omission of the civil and polit
ical equality clause from the oath of
office prescribed in the new coustitu
tion. We responded as follows:
The clause was omitted, we presume,
because it was entirely superilous. ]The
civil and political rights of all nmen are
recognized and guaranteed by the con
stitution and laws of the United States
and of Louisiana, and every official is re
quired to subscribe to the oath
I will support the constitution and laws of
the € nited States and of this State; that I
nwill faithfuly and impariilsy discharge all
the duties incumbent upon me, etc.
There is no more necessity for inserting
in this oath a special refemence to the
rights of citizens than there is for speci
fving any other particular subject re
ferred to in the 26; articles of the consti
tution or the laws enacted thereunder.

F P sYstVANIA.
For Vice P'reident,
Hio. WILLIAM H. ENGLISH,
OF INDIANA. .
This is the ticket nominated on the
second ballet taken in the Cincinnati
convention, and-itmay be candidly
acknowledged the strongest ndi least
otije tna mble the 'iemocratlcr irty
has put forth since. Buchanas's elec5
tion in 1856.
The copvention met o6 Tuesday
and elected Judge gorge Hoadley of
Ohio temporary chairman. There
were only two contests to be consid
ered by the committee on credentials
-one from: Massachusetts, the other
from New York. In the first case the
regular and Butler delegations har
monized and agreed to accept a half
vote each. The Kelly delegation from.
New York, elaihing twenty seats out
of the seventy to which the State was
entitled, was excluded by a decisive
majority.
Gen. J. W. Stevenson of Kentucky
was chosen permanent president, with.
a vice president and secretary from
each State.
The first ballot for a presidential
nominee was taken Wednesday eve
ning, with the following result:
Hesncock......171 feudricks,.....491
Bayard,..------1661 'Tilden, .......-38
Payne, ------- 81 Seymour, ...... 8
Thurman....... 68j Loveland,...... 5
Field,--------- 65 McDonu1d,..... 3
Morrison...... 62 Randall, ....... 3
McClellan, 2; Lathrop, Black, Parker,
English, Jewett and Ewing, 1 each.
The second ballot, taken Thursday
morning, was marked by a stampede
to Hancock, who received 705 votes,
against 30 for Hendricks, Bayard 2,
Tilden I. The Kelly men from New
York concurred in the action of the
convention and promised support to
the ticket. Mr. English was nomina
ted for VicePiesident by acclamation.
The platform we shall publish here
after.
Hancock, a good Union General,
would have been a comparatively
weak candidate against Grant, a bet
ter Union General, but no stronger
man could have been selected to make
the race against any Republican can.
didate except Grant. The bloody
shirt has no doubt been eliminated
from the campaign, but the solid
South is more solid than ever, and
I the North will be the seat of war for
the great electoral contest of 1880.
New York and Indiana are the two
doubtful States whose votes are ex
pected to decide the issue. The re
sult of Indiana's State election in Oc
tuber will be awaited with deepest
interest as a skirmish which may in
dicate the outcome of the great battle
to take place a month later.
A number of kind and too partial
friends have suggested the editor of
the CHIEF as a proper successor to
Judge Beattic as Republican nominee
for Congress in this district. The
Morgan City Free Press recommends
our nomination in flattering terms.
We lack words to express adequately
our sense of obligation towards these
appreciative friends and our estima
ble colleague of the Free Press, but
they may be assured that their unso
licited, unexpected and therefore sin
cere evidence of regard will ever be
cherished in our heart of hearts as one
of its most pleasaut memories. We
recognize the fact, however, that we
are sadly deficient in the elements
which constitute an available candi
date-one combining high character
and capacity with public experience,
influence and popularity-and we ask
our generous friends to aid the effort
which the CHIEF is making to keep
such a candidate in the field. Judge
Taylor Beattie is the man for the po
sition and the people of the district
should unite in demanding that he,
make the race. It will give us more
gratification to be instrumental in
securing his election than to receive
a nomination accorded nuder the un
fortuitous circumstances more than
likely to surround the selection and
candidacy of any prominent Republi
can in the district except Beattie.
rank Leslie's Popular Monthly.
The July rnumber of this popular mag
azine brilliantly commences the new
volume, and is even more than usually
attractive and interesting. Among its
prominent features are an article by N.
Robinson, "The British House of Com
urous," which has 20 illustrations and
portraits; "How the Japanese Amuse
Themselves," by Edward GrecyI "The
Fals of the Past and Present," by Dora
de Blaquiere ; both articles are liberally
and admirably illustrated, as is likewise
" The Eye and its Use," by William Ack
royd. The interesting serial" Not Guil
ty," is continued, and there are excellent
short stories and sketches by popular
writers. An article by Mr. Matthews on
" Wm. C. Macready " will not fail to at
tract considerabie attention. It has a
graphic description of the Astor Place
Riot. The poems possess great merit,
and some of them are beautifully illus
trated. The number, in fact, abounds
with delightful reading, and as a literary
and artfstic publication may challenge
comparison with the best of its contem
poraries. Each number contains 123
quarto pages and about 100 embellish
