BLAINE WILL RUN.
lie Places Himself ""in the Hands of
The Philadelphia Times of the 5th
inst. published the following special,
tripple leaded, from New York and
endorsed it as coming direct from the
most authentic source:
NEW YonR, Nay 4.-I have entirely
reliable information that the friends of
Mr. Blaine have, within the last thiee
days, received direct from him his
assent to an aggressive movment for his
re-nomination for President, and the
assurance that, if nominated In the face
of his Florence letter of'declination, he
would not feel at liberty to decline.
A general and systematic effort Ieas
been made by Mr. Blaine's closest
friends, such as Chairman Jones, Wili
liam Walter Phelps, Whitelaw Reid,
Charles Emory Smith and others, for
two months past, to get Blaine into an
attitude of a passive candidate. The
Washington conference was only part
of the varied methods by which influ
ences had been brought to bear upon
Blaine, and the bublication of his por
triat freshly taken from life in Italy and
issued by the Judge this week, was de
cided on more than a month ago as the
starting point for the avowed effort to
make Blaine the candidate. Every
possible pressure has been put upon
Blaine to get from him the direct assu
rance that be will not decline, if nonml
sated, and that assurance has been re
aeived in this city from Blaine within
the last three days.
In a very few days more it will
:ease to be a secret that Blaine is in the
hands of his friends, as the Blaine lead
mrs will at once come to the front and
nake an aggressive campaign for his
This movement has been pretty
learly foreshadowed for some weeks
n such Blaine organs as the Tribune,
>f this city, and the Philadelphia
Press, and allnaffectation about Bllaine's
randidacy will now soon he thrown off
and the battle made an aggressive one.
Part of the. original programme was
he election of Charles IEmory Smith
as a delegate at large from your S!ate,
tnd the failure was a great disappoint
nent to the Blaine junta in this city:
.ut Mr. Smith gives the assurance that
Blaine can command a majority of the
Pennsylvania delegation under any
tircumstances, and that if Blaine's
somination shall seem to be assured
the delegation will be solid for him.
The unexpected expressions int
\lassachusetts and Vermont for Blaine
were not accidental, nor are they tin
xpected to 3laine's friends. W\hen
ll of theanti.Blaine men were repos-.
og on their arms because they regard,
md Blaine as out of the fight, the
irlends of Blaine were most energetlc
n their work in the two anti-Blaine
New England Starcs, and they got los
session of Vermont and Mlassachusetts~
while the others were sleeping in fanl
ied security. It was tho expression

The Morehouse Clarion points to our
expensive judiciary system as a proper
place for the legislature to, begin its
work of retrenchment and reform. ,It
wants "less loafing judges and lessJudI
cial districts," and makes the following
local application :
Judges holding, offiee. in such dies
trlets as West Carroll and Richland ;
Ouachita; Mlorehouse; are paid three
thousand dollars per rnnum to loaft.:
The TEL.EGOrAPr co.ineldes with the
Clarion but goes farther. The jurisdic
tion of magistrates, especially in critn
inal matters, ought to be extended, the
judicitl districts enlarged and the cir
cuit Court system abolished. Remood:
died on this plan Ihei-e would be a
saving of upwards of 60o,000 per an
num and the public interest would not
suffr' in the least.
"Where the Sweet Wind Ilowsaes".'
The poetic editor of the Jackson
Patriot invites the emigrant to his
parish in this wise:
Conme, Oh! come to this beautiful land,
'The home of gardens and roses;
Whqre the sun shines solflyand warnm
And cooly the weet wind blows-eas.
Come, where there's health, and whore
And hearts like our ann are all warl),
Where at last the cruel war's over
And bull-dozers '11 do you no harm.
Come, oven though you're Radical,
For this whatneed we tooare;
Our majority is eighty-five thousand,
With the stay-at-home voters to spare.
Yes, come to our dear old Jackson.
Don't fear-our Stonewall is dead
And Andrew you know stood by you-
'Twas the Union for which he plead.
Come, come to this boantiful land,
Come from your blizzard cursed North
Come where nature holds a full hand
And plays it for all it is worth.
The Patriot runs Euastis and McEn
ery as its Senatorial team. Editor
Kidd will find out, however, that any
combination without Gibson's name
will not work. Gibson and Jones will
be the winning ticket.
The Caldwell Vatchman, speaking
of the lively interest. being manifested
in the all-important question of immi
gration, invites attention to the rich re
sources of Caldwell ;
T'here is being a noro lively Interest
evinced In the matter of immigration
now than over before (within our
knowledge) and we hope that the good
work will go on until all of our wild
lands are taken up and improved by
an honest and thrifty people. Caldwell
parish has a large amount of land with.
in her borders belonging to the State
which under the acts of 18SO can be en
tered by actual settlers at 10 cents per
acre. This land is regarded as worth..
less because it Is called swamp or over
flow land but the truth is that most
of it is comparatively free from over
llow--true there are little creeks and
branches passing through it and in
times of heavy rains they overflow the
lands adjacent, but in a few hours the
water is all gone. This land is really
better and will last longer than the
land hero held by the United States
Governmet ; besides there are a num
ber of individuals who own large quan
tities oI land in this parish and persons
wishing to come here to secure homes
will find no trouble in securing land
on the most liberal terms.
