MONROE, LA., MARCH 8, 1878.
O. W. IMcOUwAN , walter.
A suit of more than ordinary impor
tance has been instituted in the 5th
District Court, Judge Cullom presiding,
the 'title of which heads this article.
The amount involved is $100,000; the
foundation of the suit being an article
in the New Orleans Picayune of seve
ral days ago, reviewing in caustic
terms the course of Judge Ludeling in
his railroad operations and as Chief
Justice of the Supreme Court, and
which article Mr. Ludeling avers is
libellous and damaging to his character
to the extent of $100,000. The Chief
Justice has secured as attorneys, W. H.
Hunt, Semmes & Mott, and Hays &
New, among the foremost lawyers of
the New Orleans bar, who are to pros
ecute his suit and maintain the recti
tude of his course.
We do not remember, since we be
came a journalist, now fifteen years
ago, of but one suit brought in our
State to fasten the grave crime of libel
upon one of our papers. Doubtless
there have been numerous instances
where, according to strict rules of law,
suits of this character would have been
sustained by the courts. In the heat of
political campaigns editors are not very
choice in the use of terms in which to
demolish the influence of their oppo
nents. And so it is, and has always
been in the forum. And we might,
also, point to the bar, from whish Judge
Ludeling not very long since came, for
examples weekly of the fiercest and
bitterest abuse and denunciation of in
dividuals and officials, and yet we do
not recall a single instance from any
of these numerous exemplifications of
the freedom of discussion, where the
party arraigned has felt it necessary to
go to the courts for relief. The fact is,
libel suits have never been, at the
South, in popular favor. A good square
knock-down, such as the Chief Justice
once knew how to give, or a quiet
meeting at the Oaks, has always, in
Louisiana, taken precedence, as a rem
edy for wounded honor, over a law
suit where scandal is interminably re
tailed for the delectation of the curious
and the vulgar. An individual may
obtain fifty verdicts sustaining his name
and fame, and still, the defense, by
producing a single fact in the prosecu
tor's history, will infallibly carry pop
ular opinion with him. It seems to be
the rule that an individual who is not
competent and willing to take care of
his own character, without appealing
to the courts, is adjudged to be entitled
to precious little mercy at the hands of
the public. Hence it is, we presume,
that there have been, in Louisiana, so
few suits brought for libel.
As to the merits of this particular case,
we do not propose to speak with any
very great particularity. But, accus
tomed as we have eJn, to permit and
tiaxercise the greatest freedom of dis
ccimiss8 abject, only, to strict personal
accountability, we cannot believe that
the course of Chief Justice Ludeling is
characterized by sound and sober rea

twelvemsuch men "as are now drawn
from the jury box do say Judge Lude
ling has been dam ,ad_ i character to
the extent of $100,(o Would not, at
last, the character of the Chief Justice
of the State be at a low standard to
have the decision of such men as its
greatest support? It we had to appeal
to twelve voters, indisc'rimninately, from
this, or any other parish in Louisiana,
to sustain our character, we should Cer
tainly never bother about the business.
The game would not be worth the
The petition of tile Chief Justice is
rather lengthy, but we have found time
to give the published copy a perusal.
It appears that the petitioner has three
general grounds of complaint against
thePicayune--st, As to the Picayune's
chlrges respecting his opinions asChief
Justice, wherein he is represented as
rendering decisions from purely parti
sun motives; 2nd, As to his alleged
corrupt purchase and management of
the N. L. & T. It. It., and Srd, As to
his social status in Monroe.
WVe are not able to say what the eli
tors of the Picayune will be able to
prove substantiating the charge that
the Supreme Court has been biased by
political considerations In tile forma
tibn of its opinions, but we cau inform
the Chief Justice that thie seolf-samo
charge has been repeatedly made before,
and, if we are not mistaken, by the
TEBEGRAIPH several times. Among
members of the bar the accusation has
been mentioned so often as to have be.
come stale. And the Court has un
doubtedly seen its decisions similarly
denounced time and time again. The
last noticeable instance of this kind is
the recent report of the majority of the
Committee of Privileges and Elections
of the U. S. Senate. True, it is not pos
itively asserted that the opinion of the
Court was made especially in Kellogg's
interest, but there can be no doubt that
such was the inference the Committee
meant to be drawn from the language
VWe might, we believe, take up some
of the dissenting opinions of the Chief
Justice himself, and similar opinions
by his Associates, and show that they
have mutually charged each other with
rendering decisions immoral, unconsti
tutional, contrary to law, custom and
evidence, and not fit to stand upon
record as the solemn decrees of the
highest tribunal of the State. What
could possibly be the motives influenc
ing such decrees ?
If Judge Ludeling is really in earnest
in taking up the defense of his course
in the Railroad interest, it seems to us
he ought to acknowledge the fores of
prescription. The New Orleans Bee,
and also Judge Campbell, both, if we
remember correctly, arraigned Judge
Ludeling in much severer terms than
the Picayune has, for his course In the
purchase of the Vicksburg and Shreve
port road, and to the schemes resorted
to to secure aid from the State. It is
the simple truth that the State is to-day
chargeable with a debt, (upon which it
is paying interest,) amounting to more,
by half at least, than the road is worth,
and that this profligate appropriation
of the people's money was made, In
greater part, at the instance of Chief
Justice Ludeling and his associates,
and for their benefit. We do not un
dertake to say that corrupt means were
employed to obtain this aid, but we do
say that there is no just defense, upon
patriotic grounds, in procuring and re
ceiving the appropriation. If the Chic
Justice of the State was a party to this
extravagant use of the people's money,
so much the greater offense. We put it
to any man of sound discretion to say
what sort of a spectacle a judge pre
sents who condemns the inequality of
wages and labor, or the inadequacy of
prices and property, or the insufficiency
of a plaintiff's demand, or of a defen
dant's plea in compensation, and yet
represents in his own name and person
a corporation notoriously amenable to
all these accusations.
The social question involved in this
case will doubtless excite public curi
osity the most. To define one's social
position, it is first necessary to know
what society rates the individual at.
Chief Justice Ludeling has never im
pressed us very profoundly as a social
being. lie is most generally known as
a sort of recluse, who (loes not mingle
much in society and seems to give his
time almost entirely to his home and
his office. It is due him, however, to
say, that, so far as his walk in social
life haspassed under our eye it has been
strictly moral and temperate, if mgJpt .
tirely exemplary. What ~may belong
to his anteeedent,-;iow about to become
a sti5eclof" judicial investigation, we
are wholly unprepared to give an esti
mate, knowing nothing about his pri
vate history.
It strikes us, after a survey of the
case, that the Chief Justice had better
have placed his reputation in the keep
ing of the future annalist, and eschewed
the annoying details of a suit at law.
Possibly the liberty of the press is very
often abused, but taking into account
the personal accountability of press
conductors, the certainty of their ex
posure when they misrepresent or even
distort facts, and the great blessings
derived from tha disclosures of crime
and personal rascality by the press, the
individual injury in exceptional in
stances may well be settled between
individuals, or mergcted in the greeter
benefit derived by the nuIas froln the
power of the press. ite Chief Justice
of a great State ought to be able to fur
nish in his own life and example the
lie point-blank to the mlost malignant
newspaper attack.

Fusion Legislature Meet at St.Jauwne
(Speeial to Ouachita Telegraph.]
NEw OsLBAANs, March 6.-Between
9 and 10 o'clock last night the McEne
ry militia attacked the third precinct
police station, and commenced the
attack by firing.into the building. The
firing was returned by the police, and
soon after Gen. Badger, Chief of the
Metropolitan Police, moved down
Chartres street from Canal with about
200 men and one piece of artillery.
Quite a large crowd had by this time
collected about Jackson Square and on
the streets leading thereto. When near
the crowd, ien. Badger ordered them
to disperse. The militia refusing to
give way, the police fired a blank
cartridge, and soon after another shot
was fired-this time the gun being
loaded with grape shot. By this one
man was killed and several wounded.
Another charge was fired out St. Ann
street. Some 10 or 12 are reported
wounded, and one man reported killed.
As far as known only one policeman
was wounded during the entire fight.
At one time the firing was quite brisk
-resembling sonoewhat a picket skir
mish. For the powder expended and
the fues made the damage was remark
ably light.
United States troops reached the
scene of conflict about 11 o'clock, and
the remaining militia retired, leaving
them in possession.
The action of the U. S. troops was
taken in obedience to the following
telegram :
WVASIIIxNT'rON, March 5.
G':u. IV. I. EmoLro, Chrr'd'y DDept of the Gulf :
The President directs you to prevent
any violent interference with the State
Government of Louisiana. Acknowl

WV. T. SlIi"ERaA N, Ull('l.
8:30 P. M.- The seventh precinct
station was recaptured by the Metro
politan Police at 21 o'clock this niorn
ing. (ion. Badger with eighteen men
and one piece of artillery reached the
station and alking a detour to the
rear of the building advanced toward
it, and sent Officer Murphy to demand
their surrender; but before Ihe reached
the station the attacking party were
received with a volley from shot-guns
of perhaps seventy-five men, and tile
tire was immediately returned. The
men on duty retreated, and the epolic
rushing in captured the station and
seven plrisoners.
It was then ascertained that 21. K.
Chandler, a citizen, had been mortally
wounded, a ball penetrating his abdo
men. Another man, Ernest Livandus,
was struck in the arml with buck shot.
Na.w OILI.ANS, March 6, 10 A. M.
The city is pertectly quiet, anr no
trouble is apprehended to-day.
It is now stated that Gov. McEnery
did not authorize the movement made
by the militia last night.
Tihe Metropolitan police are in quiet
possession, with U. S. troops in easy
supporting distance. The militia has
all dispersed.
Citizens seem to regard the attack of
last night as premature. The object of
tihe Fusionists in making it does not
clearly appear, but it is supposed to
have been with the view of showing
that the people would not quietly sub
mnit to tile Kellogg government.

-The Kellogg Metropolitan Police,
armed as infantry, have just taken pos
session of Odd Fellow's Hall, where
the McEnery Legislature has heretofore
met. Mr. J. C. Moncure, Speaker of
the House, and other members who
were in the Hall at the time, were
taken to the first precinct police station.
About 100 police occupy Lafayette
There is considerable excitement, and
a large crowd is gathering about the

The thousand dollar bill which Con
ductor MicKinney took from a stranger
on the Owl train between New Haven
and this city, more than a year ago, is
still on deposit to Mr. McKinnoy's credit
at one of the city banks. The interest
has amounted to over one hundred dol
lars. It will be remembered that the
conductor, when the bill was handed
him, passed on, saying he would change
it when he had gone through the train.
When he returned the man denied
having presented a thousand dollar
bill. He was probably a thief, gave
the money by mistake, and was afraid
to rectify it. At all events, Mr. Mc
Kinney thinks it a pretty good night's
work.-IIartford Courant.

The rejection shows clearly that no

the .people, antd with the solemnt obli
gatious assulmed by their relresenhut

up voluntarily now thie Government

control of the usurpers, is to give it up
forever, absolutely, indelltitely and
without hope; fmr with the corrupt
legislation, and appliances which are
brought to bear on all future elections,
with theIr whole unachinery in their
hands, all future elections will be futile.
