"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.

OLD HIUIvOUY.
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?

he had no leral right to marry her
and that there is no record of the pub
lic marriage after the divorce. 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

New Discovery I owe my life. Was
taken with la grippe and tried all the
physicians for miles about, but of no

CiilLnn on Cuba.
Senator Cullorn of Illinois, a member
of the committee on foreign relation?,
has returned to Washington. The
senator was asked whit he thought tf

gestion that it should be postponed f r
the present, lie rays he knows noth-

that in case the opposition to the re-

solution should be strong enough it
could be defeated as many other
measures are defeated by consumption
of time in discussion of the subject.
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.

ple illustration will say what a
column of words often fail to
express. Kvery merchant knows the
value of an original illustration made
expressly for his own business a
design of his own suggestion. But
there has always been one uninviting
hurdle to jump in obtaining It: the
cost. If you desire an illustration of
any kind, call and see us and you will
fiad that thegreater part of thehurdle
of cost has been torn away. Suggest
your own idea, and It will be designed
and submitted to you for approval
before being engraved.
