THE WORK OF ST2ATE REDEMPTION.
Both houses of the General Assembly
hayr passed h bill providing for the
call of a Constitutional convention.
Gov. Nicholls, in his message, was true
to the wishes of the people, and strong
ly urged the passage of such a bill, and
it is now matter of certainty that the
people of Louisiana, so long outraged
And oppressed, will have a fair oppor
tunity to redeem their State and assert
their capacity for self-government. The
TELEGRAPH takcs unwonted pleasure
in this triumph of the cause of the peo
ple. It may bring some trouble, but
not more than what the people of
Louisiana have already undergone,
and we are quite certain, as we have
been from the days of military recon
struction, that any change would be a
change for the better.
We now urge the voters to be parti
cular in the selection of delegates to the
Convention, and to permit no one to
reach that august assemblage who is
not qualified, and who has not shown
that he has the elements of a true man
The particulars of the bill enacted
have not reached us, but in view of
the subjects likely to come before the
Convention, we now offer a few sugges
tions for the consideration of the voter.
Since 1861 the burthens of govern
ment in this State have been a subject
of serious, If not just, complaint. Every
year they become louder, and it Isnow
asked on all sides, how are they to be
lightened ? It is true that the debt of
the State is large. It is equally true
that about one-half of the debt is
fraudulent and unjust, for which the
people have received no benefit and no
equivalent. We do not preach repu
diation; every dollar of the honest debt
should be paid-no more and no less.
It is true that the officers are numer
ous and must be paid, and it is equally
true that the number could be reduced
greatly without detriment, and all
salaries cut down one-half without
starving any one incumbent. As it
stands, there is scarcely an office that
does not pay its incumbent two or three
times the revenue that he would re
celve at anything else.
Look where you will, and of the men
who are able to make both ends meet,
the office-holders are among the num
ber. The producers, the money-fetchers
and the tax payers who are the sinews
of government are steadily on the de
cline. Property is depreciating; houses
are going to destruction; mortgages
are growing, and bankruptcy Is walk
ing boldly up to the door. The picture
is not over-drawn. There is no pros
perity in the land. Think of it : Interest
between 15 and 25 per cent.; cotton 61
to 9 cents; and every dollar of last
year's crop must go to last year's ac
count. There will be nothing left for
repairs, or improvements of any kind.
Trade is coiing to a cash basis. Al
ready merchants have placarded their
shops with cc No goods charged until
old accounts are paid." Confidence is
lost. Hard times are upon us, and
government, as well as individuals,
must adapt itself to hard-times condi
tions. The rate of taxation is too high
-and cotton, rent and labor cannot
If the professions of the Democratic
party were sincere, now is the time to
make them good. Let us have no
more paper promises, but give us
economy, retrenchment and .sbsftat iut
reform. Lop off all sinecures, and let
every man earn his living. Coinpro
mise the State debt at 41 per cent. in
terest; reduce taxation to five mills on
the dollar, cuat all salaries down one
half, and then repeal the usury law.
The times demand it. If tlis be not
done, repudiation will not only rise in
1880, but will conquer, and " ,e riclis"
will be the motto.
The vacancy on the Supreme Bench
of this State, caused by the death of
the late Judge Egan, has been filled by
the appointment of the IIon. E. D.
White, of New Orleans. The appoint
ment has been confirmed by the Senate
and the new Justice will, we presume,
accept the posltion. The appointee is
spoken of by the N. O. Democrat in
the following flattering terms:
Hon. E. D. White, appointed by the
Governor to the vacacy on the bench
created by the death of Associate Jus
tice E~gan, was yesterday confirmed
by the unanimous vote of the Senate.
Mr. White is the son of an ex-Govenor
'of Louisiana, and, though still quite a
young man, he has distinguished him
sell in polities and at the bar by his
comprehensive knowledge of. the law
and by his great energy and Indefati
gable Industry. The appointment will
give very general satisfaction, and we
predict a brilliant career for the new
Judge White, we hear, is about 32
years of age. His father, Edward D.
White, was Govenor of this State from
1885 to 1839-Gov. A. B. Roman being
his successor in office. The new Judge
is probably the youngest man who has
ever occupied a seat on the Supreme
Bench of this State.
We regret that Gov. Nicholls was
unable to find a lawyer from this
Supreme Court district fitted to fill the
vacant position. As now organized,
the Monroe district is without a single
representative on the Bench.
PUBLIC CREDIT VS. PRIVATE CIREDIT
[Fromthe N. O. Domocrat.]
Much has been said in the last few
weeks of the effect on private credit of
the low credit of the State, resulting
from the failure to pay promptly the
interest on the bonds due January 1,
1879. Those who have a direct pecuni
ary interest in the question have
sounded the note of alarm, and try as
siduously to produce the impression
that general bankruptcy and ruin
would be entailed on the whole com
munity by such a failure. This idea is
based on a fallacy that is easily demon
strated. The credit of any Individual
is in direct proportion to his property,
deducting his debts. The aggregate
wealth of all the inhabitants of Loulesi
ana-less what they owe to inhabitants
of other States-is the measure of their
The entire property of the people of
this State is mortgaged and pledged to
secure $18,000,000 of State debt, of
which the people of the city of New
Orleans have to bear about five-eights,
say $11,250,000 and the city debt Is an
additional mortgage of $P2,00,000 . So
the property of the people of this city
is mortgaged for about $33,250,000, or
to one third of Its value, and this mort
gage diminishes in a still greater ratio
the actual price any piece of property
will bring in the market. Every piece
of property is sold subject to this mort
gage of one-third its value. Therefore,
if every State and city bond or obliga
tion was extinguished or repudiated
the actual marketable value of property
would be increased nearly 40 per cent.
The total value of all the property of
all the people of this city instead of be
ing $111,000,000 would be $144,250,000.
This immense debt is worth, how
ever, only about $13,912,500, estimating
State bonds at 05 cents and city at 30
cents. Therefore, by repudiating the
State and city debt, supposing that
every bond is held in the city, the
bondholders would lose $13,912,500,
and the property holders would gain
$33,250,000. So the only effect of not
paying interest to the bondholders is
the loss of so much money to the hold
ers. Far be it from us to suggest or
advocate repudiation of an honest debt
for which the people have received ade
quate consideration. We but demon
strate that a total repudiation would
increase private credit in a much
greater amount than those who hold
bonds would lose.
No one complains of the injury to
general private credit resulting from
the fact that our judges and executive
officers, police and school teachers are
not paid and are several months in
Some of the city papers have nothing
to say on this disgrace; but if the cou
pon clippers are a month late in getting
their money, a tremendous howl is
Those who devote all their time,
labor and energy to the service of the
people are not paid and have not been

money to pay them. But the holders
3f the evidences of the rascalities of
Ludeling, Warmoth, Kellogg, fiay,
Anderson and others, are much exer

because the people are too poor to pay
the interest promptly. This inconsis

parish, between MIr. Kountz, the Clerk

drew a pistol and shot the Clerk and

TUE RACE CONFLICT.
North and South Changing Front as to
the Status of the Negro.
[Austin (Texas) State Gazette.]
At last Northern people, through
private letters, through the few South
ern papers that reach the North,
through those who sojourn and travel
here and through those who, unlike
Bishop Haven, have access to the peo
ple of the South-through all these
sources of opinion the North has learned,
as never before, the relations of blacks
and whites. The horrendumn vugus of
the North believed, until recently, that
whenever a negro was knocked on the
head in a vulgar bar-room, in a drunk
en debauch or at some obscure voting
place, that the rebellion was reor
ganized and that a negro's blood
wrought madness everywhere and was
significant of some frightful Southern
revolt. The Northern mob was per
suaded by Blaine and the Inter-Ocean
that a draft of the militia was immi
nent, that armies were required, that
a negro's overthrow was the Union's
But this course of Northern opinion
has been thoroughly changed. It is
finally agreed, as President Hayes has
suggested, that the relation of races has
no reference to that of either race or of
States to the Union. If the negro were
exterminated to-night the perpetuity
of the Union would be proclaimed even
by Cuffee's destroyer to-morrow. With
this apprehension of facts finally ac
cepted the bloody shirt becomes a very
useless banner. It falls to arouse the
Northern multitudes. In fact, the
press, in many portions of the North,
begins to ascribe the ruin of Southern
municipalities to the potency of the
ignorant, Incapable rabble unworthily
invested with the privilege of suffrage.
Enormous losses from this cause have
befallen banks and capitalists. Tney
groan and are disgusted. They look
about for the reason for this practical
repudiation of public indebtedness by
States, cities and countries. They ask
why pestilence ravaged places now
desolate and bankrupt. The answer is
" knaves have plundered and Ignorance
and filth destroyed, and knaves were
crowned and ignorance honored by
Senegambian stupidity." Blaine and
Bishop Haverrmay worship, but com
mon sense and capital damn the dirty
mob, white and black, that achieves
such disasters and wide-spread ruin.
Philanthropy and generosity to igno
rance are proper enough, and Southern
people were once famed for generosity,
but the virtue, even Northern eyes,
became a vice when it resulted in the
concession of supremacy in local and
State governments to helpless, hope
less, incurable barbarism. The neces
sary end was this wide spread bank
ruptcy, and worse than bankruptcy,
even, in money-lenders' eyes, was this
ghostly, hideous plague that befell the
cities and towns of wide districts of the
South, because stupidity had been in
vested with supreme local power by
polluted ballot-boxes. Northern opinion
undergoes, therefore, a sure and speedy
transformation. Not only is New
England unwilling to have the negro
retain his representative power in Con
gress, but New England confesses the
necessity for the restriction of the right
to exercise the privilege of suffrage to
intelligence, and in municipalities to
tax-payers. Blaine, seeing how his ad
herents blundered in clothing Africa
with power to govern in America,
seeks to assign a false reason for his
palpable purpose to disfranchise the
negro. He would deprive the negro of
representation in Congress, and simply
for the reason that only six of forty
Congressmen to which the negro popu
lation is entitled on the floor of the
House are Republicans. But the con
stitution will hardly be changed.
The South may insist that the federal
organic code remain as it is and South
ern power in Washington undimin
ished. The only change probable may
occur in local laws exempting corpora
tions from tramp and savage domina
The South, in any event, is to be
congratulated that the purpose and
origin of race conflicts is finally com
prehended by the President and masses
of Northern people. Our relations to
the negro have not the remotest con
nection with our relations to the Union.
The black deity, preferred by Bishop
Haven and worshipped more sanctimo
niously and more earnestly than Ha
ven's everliving God, has been thrust
from countless altars everywhere in the
North, and there is every reason to be
lieve that the South must assume at an
early day the position of the negro's
special defender and champion, and
even then the Union will be neither
more or less endangered.
