'To the victors belong the spoils." "By the eternal they shall not sleep on our soil tonight." Today we celebrate the anniversary of the battle of New Orleans. We are American enough to join with our democratic brothers in a hurrah for Andy Jackson. Read a letter in another column from the pen of Gen. Jackson which describes how he "fit" the Britishers some eighty years ago. The democrats try to monopolize Andrew Jackson and Dixie. Both ar3 too good for narrow partizanship, and are the heritage of the whole people. It is doubtful if democracy admires the hero of New Oleans, as much as it does the spoilsman president, as witness the speeches at Chicago last night and those at Washington tonight. General Jackson had as little re spect for Spain as some of Cuba's sym pathizers have today, and he invaded the Florida's, then Spain's possession, to eieze two Britons and hang them. Andrew Jackson was as self willed in war as he had been in love. When the French consul objected to putting New Orleans under martial law, he marched the consul out of the city and told him not to return. The citizens of Waco have opened their municipal campaign preparatory to electing their city officers on April 6, 1897. The different candidates are already making this announcements. The issue before the people are amendments to the city charter, aboli tion of the office of city treasurer, re duction of salaries of officials and bonding for school purposes. The offices to be filled are city attorney, secretary, assessor aud collector of taxes, treasurer, chief of police and five alderman, one for each ward. THIS IS OLD HICKORY'S DAY. Tonight the democracy throughout the country generally will celebrate "the victory of Andrew Jackson at New Orleans, but the principal meeting wul be at Washington. SO REGAL POMP FOR HIM. Hazen S Pingree, governor of Mich igan and mayor of Detroit, is noted for doing unusual things, many of them as commendable as they are unconven tional. He shows unusual good sense for a public man, and behaves as an ideal man of the people should do. His latest eccentricity was to decline to have his inauguration as governor, made an occasion of parade and dis play. He went to the capital city with bis family, took them to a hotel, walked to the capitol building, and took the oath of office in the presence of a few officials who happened to be there. CLEVELAND ON JACKSON. "Not all the people who have fol lowed the banner have been able by a long train of close reasoniog to dem onstrate as an abstraction why demo cratic principles are best suited to their wants and the country's good," said Mr. Cleveland at the Philadelphia meeting in 1891, "but they have known and felt that, as their government was established for the people, the prin ciples and the men nearest to the peo ple and standing for them could be the safest trusted. Jackson has bem in their eyes the incarnation of the things which Jefferson declared. If they did not understand all that Jefferson wrote, they saw and knew what Jackson did." A FRIEND TO THE WEST. Hon. Li. B. Prince who has just re turned from the east, where he visited Maj. McKinley, says in an interview in the New Mexican that Gov. McKinley is fully alive to the needs and interests of the west, and will select the sec retary of the interior from the region west of the Missouri and probably from the Pacific slope. There is an other thing that our people may be assured of, and that is that the ad ministration will use every effort, in good faith, to bring about the remor. etization of silver through internation al government agreement; and the condition of Europe is such as to pre sent much better chances of success than heretofore. fir"3" "spp Ill J0mi Old Hickory.

Sketches of the Hero of the Battle of New Orleans Tn tho .Tanuarv Century William Hugh Kobarts has an article in which is quoted a hitherto unpublished letter written by Gen. JacKson to M-. James Monroe. A portion of the letter is as fol.owr: Tt.ero was a very heavy fog on the river teat, morning, auu lud xjhwou had it. The disposition ol tne rmemen was very simple. They were told off in numbers one and two. Number one was to fire first, then step back and let No. 2 shoot while he reloaded. About (500 j arils from the riilemen there was a great draiDige canal running back from the Mississippi river to the swamp in the rear of the tilled laud on which we were operating. Along this canal the British formed, under the tire of the few artillery pieces I had near enough to them to get their range. But the instant I saw them, I said to Coffee, whom I directed to hurry to his line, which was to 'be first attacked: "By , we have got them: they are ours:" Coffee dashed forward, and riding along his line, called out, "Don't shoot till you can see their belt buck les." The British were formed in mass, well closed up, and about two compan ies front. The British, thus formed, moved on at a quick step, without firing a shot, to within one hundred yards of the kneeling riilemen, who were holding their tire until they could see the bell buckles of their enemies. The -British BfivnnpR was executed as though they had been on parade. They marched shoulder to shoulder, with the step of veterans, as they were. At one hun dred yards' distance from our line the order was given. "Extend column front." "Double quick. march! Charge:" With bayonets at the charge, t.hfv T-ame on us at a run. I own it was aa anxious moment; I well knew the charging column was made up of the picked troops of the British army. Tbeyf had been trained by the duke himself, were commanded by his brother-in-law, and had successfully held off the ablest of Napoleon's Mar shals in the Soanish campaign. My riflemen had never before seen such an attack, nor had they ever before fought white men. The mornin?, too, was damp; their powder might not burn well. "God help us all :" I muttered, watching the r.p;diy advancing lioe. Seventy, sixty, fifty, finally forty yards, were tney from the silent, kneeling riilemen. All of my men I could eee .vus their long r ik-s rested on the logs before them. Th.-y obeed their or ders well; not a shot was fired uutil the red coats were within forty yards. 1 heard Coffee's vo.ee as he roared out: "Now, mcD, aim for the center of the cross belts! Fire:' A second after the order a crackling blazing crash ran all along our line. The smoke hung so heavily in the mity morning air that I could not see what had happe' td. I called Tom Overton and Ataner Duncan of my staff, and we galloped toward Coffee's line. In a few seconds after the first fire there came aoolher sharp, ringllng volley. As I came within one hundred acd fifty yards of Coffee, the smoke lifted enough for me to make out what was happening. Tho British were falling back in a confused, disorderly mass, and the entire first ranks of their column were blown away. For two hundred yards in our front the ground was covered with a mass of writhing wounded, dead, and dying redcoats. By the time the rities were wiped the British line was reformed, and on it came again. This time they were led by Gen. Paken ham in person, gallantly mounted, and riding as though he was on parade. Just before he got within range of Cotlee'eline I heard a single ritlehot from a group of country carts we had been using about oao hundred and seveDtvlive yards distant, and a mo ment thereafter I saw Pakenhara reel and pitch oat of his saddle. 1 have always believed he fell from the bullet of a free man of color, who wa3 a rifleshot, and came from the Atakap pas region of Louisiana. The second advance was precisely like the Drt in its ending-. In five volleys the 1,500 or more riilemen killed and wounded 2, 117 British soldiers, two-thirds of them killed dead or mortally wounded. I did not know where Gee Pakcnham was iying.or I should have sent to him, or gone in person, to offer any service in my power to render. I waa toll he U tea two hours after he was hit. His wound was directly through the liver and bowe's. (Jen. Kteue. 1 hear, was killed dead. They sent a liag to nif , asking leave to trath er up their wound.: d aud bury their dead, which, of course, I granted. I was told by a woucded officer that ttp rank and 15 1 absolutely refused to make a third charge. ''We have no chance, with such shooting as these Americans do," they said. NEW ORLEANS C'A AIl'AKJN. On the afternoon of December 2:. 18 15, General Jafkeon sat in his head quarters at I1 0' Uoyal street, Now Or leans. Three g- n' lemen came riding down the street. They wera y.uj r Vil lere. Colonel de la Kontle and Dusnon la Croix. Mr. la Croix had just brought the news that the advance guard of ti e British army was encamped m the Vil lere plantations, nine miles below the city. Jackson received his visitors, heard their news, offered them some wine and then dispatched a messenger to each corps under his command, or dering them to break camp and march to certain positions. Then the general ate a little, took a brief nap on his sofa and before 3 o'clock was in the saddle acd riding toward the lower part of the city. At Fort St. Charles he reviewed his troops. They were 2,131, and more theu half of them had never been iu action. They came from Mississippi, Tennessee and Louisiana, and among them was a battalion of freemen of color which did good service in the fieht. In the encounter of December 23, Jackson was successful, but this was only a preliminary battle. The decis ive conflict was on Jan. 8, 1S15. Jack son's troops on that day numbered 4, 000, of whom 800 bad been scattered about for the defense of the camp, along the Rodriguez car.al, six miles from the city and in the outskirts of the woods. The other 3,200 were drawn up along the lines of the' Itodi guez and Calmette plantations, between th river and the swamp. The British army aggregated 14.420 of whom about 12,000 assaulted Jackson's line. The attack began at dawn. At 8 o'clock the enemy had been repulsed, with 2I Killed, l,li) wounded and 4oU reported missing. And these were trained troops. Of the American volunteers, 13 were reported killed, 39 wounded and 19 missing. THE HERMITAGE. When Jackson died, he left his fam ous home, the Hermitage, to his adopt ed son, Andrew Jackson, Jr. The state of Tennessee bought it in ISoli for $48, 000. It contained then the residence, stables, two cabins and 500 acres of land. It was the hops of the people of i Tennessee that the government would! establish there a southern branch of the Military academy at West Point. The war put an end to that idea, and the family of Andrew Jackson, Jr., was allowed to occupy the residence as ten ant at will till the death of Mrs Jack son in isj4. nen a proposition to sell the property was made, but the womn of Tennessee, to preserve it, organized in January, 1839, the Ladies' Hermit age association. They wanted to fol low the plan of the Mount Vernon as sociation, which had restored Wash ington's home to something like its conuition when Washington occupied it and had made it a place of. pilgrim age. The women of Nashville, under the leadership of Mrs. Nathaniel Baxter, started the movement and procure from the legislature a charier. The legislature gave 475 acres of the prop erty to the Confederate Home associa tion and 25 acres, with the minsion and tomb of Jackson, to the Ladies Hermitaye association. The associa tion quickly raised $10,000 and set about the worn of restoration. The tomb where lie the remains of General Jack son and his wife under three weeping willows was surrounded by a neat fence. The mansion was roofed and painted, and the grounds and gardtn were re stored. But the work of the associa tion is only half done. Money id Lard to raise. Mrs. Carlisle, the wife of the secretary of the treasury, gave an en tertainment at Washington a year ago to raise funds to help the restoration, and many individual contributions have been made. But the legislature of Tennessee has refused to contribute to the work, and so it remains half finished. . Another memorial to Jackson i which the ladies of the south take lively interest is the monument which stands on the battlefield of Chalmette. The daughters of 1776 1812, at New Orleans, have undertaken the respon sibility of completing this monument, which has stood for many years half finished. The masonry has Deen un protected, and relic hunters have broken away parts of ihe bass. But the daughters of 1776-1S12 began a year ago the work of restoration and com pletion, and they hope before another year has passed that the merworial to the glorious victory of Jan. 8, 1815, will stand perfect. DUEL WITH DICKINSON. The duel between Andrew Jackson and George Dickinson, says Grant Hamilton, grew out of his marriage to the wife of another man before her husband had divorced her. What was the measure of his blame in this tran saction will never be clear. His biographers Pay that he fell in love with the beautiful K&ehel Kobards of Kentucky, when he was a guest in her house, that she fled from a drunken and abusive husband, and that Jackson married her, believing she had been divorced. Afterward, when the di vorce had been granted, he married her publicly again. Other historians treat the hero of New Orleans less kindly. They say that Mrs. Kobards had given her husbaud cause for suspi c on before she met young Jackson: that she eloped with Jackson from her i usband's house, and was pursued by Itobards, who exchanged shots with .1 ickson across a river; that Jackson lived with her for two vears. knowin?

U. here are many stories, too, about the duel. One historian sajs that Dickinson insulted Jackson through his wife, knowing this to be the most sen sitive spot, that he might kill him. and that Dickinson, a notorious bully, was the chosen agent of Jackson's political opponents. Another has it that Dickinson was a splendid lellow, a good lawyer, with the promise of a bright career, and that his light re mark about Mrs. Jackson was made thoughtlessly and merely echoed the common opinion. Whatever the facts about the preliminaries, there is no doubt that Dickinson waa a fine shot and that Jackson allowed some time to elap-e some say nine months before he challenged him. Meantime JacKson put all his affairs in order. The bat tleground chosen was distant a day's journey, aud all along ihe route Dickinson, who preceded Jackson, left marks of his prowess with the pistol. One authority has it that Jackson's figure was "built up" for the purpose of deceiving his opponent; another that Jackson's figure was naturally peculiar and deceptive. One of Jackson's friends quoted him as saying in after years that he intended to firo in the air: that, being struck, he believe! himself mortally wounded, i and therefore tried to kill his antag- J onist. Others say that he went on : the field determined to bold his fire and than, if he were cot killed, to kill his opp-ment with deliberation. However all this may be, it is certain that Dickinson fired first, and seeing Jackson still standing sprang back with an involuntary exclamation; that Jackson's second cocked his own pistol and ordered Dickinson to stand up to the mark, and that Jackson then rais ed his pistol aud shot Dickinson through the heart. "By the Eternal, I would have kill ed him if he had sent a bullet through my bra'n!" he said after his duel in which he held his fire until Dickinson's bullet had broken two of his ribs. lie always regretted Dickinson's death, and no doubt that was not the only unhappine.-s which his peculiar marj-iae brought t hiiu. But he loved his wife very dearly, and he was incousolable when she died, just before the beginning of his tor m as president. "It will not be heaven to me if she is not there," he said when he was con verted . Th Discovery aved His Life. Mr. G. Caillouette, druggist, Bea versville, 111., says: "To Dr. King's New Discovery I owe my life. Was taken with la grippe and tried all the physicians for miles about, but of no avaU and was given up and told I could not live. Having Dr. King's Wew Discovery in my store I sent for a bottle and began its use and from the first dose began to get better, and after using three bottles was up and about again.

Senator Cullom says that if it ap pears it is the purpose of the opponents of the measure to defeat it no good would be accomplished in passing it, While he voted for the resolution, he is not particular as to the form it takes or what it should declare. His object is, as he declared in his speech early in the seson, to have some action to bring the brutal war in Cuba to an end. Senator Cullom thinks it likely that steDS in the direction are baiDg taken and possibly something will ba done to terminate hostilities. linnil Iden.
