The Better Pan.
Recognizing the fact that it re
quires a large sum of money to
organise, construct, and operate a
great International Exposition on
a semle befitting the important
achievement which it proposes to
celebrate, the Exposition Compa
ny has requested the Governor to
convene the Legislature in extra
ordinary session in order to effect
a change in the plan of the tax
provided in the pending Constitu
tional Amendment. The executive
committee proposes to relieve the
tax payers of the expense of the
proposed extra session by paying
the cost of it out of the funds rais
ed by private subscription to de
fray the expense of the Exposition
Company, hence, this will remove
objections on that score.
The purpose of the extra session
ought to appeal to thb people of
the country parishes for the change
proposed in the amendment, while
it will increase the aggregate of
the tax paid by New Orleans, will
reduoe the aggregate of tbpt to be
e paid by the country tax payers.
To be specific, the proposition is
to make no change in the tax rate,
bet to limit the term for the coun
try parishes to such time as shall
be required to make the aggregate
of the nuntry tU one million dol
ars, whem it will cease automat.
e_ly. The measure now before
the people contemplates raising
$1,60,000 from the countiY par

dollars will be saved to the uxu
payers outside of New Orleans by
the adoption of the proposed
0O the other hand, the term of
the tax ias i applies to New Or
leans will be extended until it ag
gregates the sum of ,500,000,
when it also will cease automati
cally. The ratio between city and
country on the amount to be raised
by taxation, will be as six and a
half is to one; a fact that ough* to
be accepted as an earnest of the
good faith with which New Or
leans has entered upon this great
This should not be construed to
mean that the tax proposed will
supeercde the subscriptions, more
than a million of which have been
raised already. On the contrary,
the work of raising subscriptions
is being pushed with more vigor
than ever, and the effort is being
made to enlist the financial inter
est of every person in New Orleans,
and qt a great many public spirit
ed citinsm i every southern city
in te monupental enterprise
which means so n ach to all.
It requires seven and.a half mil

DeSoto parish have been published, the authorities of that parish
have puldished in the Mansfield Journal of July 29th an itemised
statement of all the receipts and disbursements for the building of
good roads in that parish. The statement is twocolumnns in length,
and embraces every item of receipt and expenditure. We reproduce
herewith the recapitulation of the totabis wbich show that the 15
miles built up to date have cost an average of $756.51 per mile,

N. Need or New Phrty.
In a recent address President
Kirby, of the Natbional Amaoeianion
of Maatnfactres, expreaed at
opinion that there is need of a mse
political party in this country, o
he ys he woeuld have one
shalrlgwe s to t~ su . msenti.
meats that emaedtbhe party of
Fremout and Lincoln, a party
which shall serve the same high
purpose, and which shall be pow
erful enough to hold the nation in
the balance against the demagogues
of existing parties."
But Mr. Kirby seems not to be
mindful of the fact that the Be.
publhan party claims to voice the
sentiments of the party of Fremoet
and Lincoln. At every opportuni
ty the Independence League, which
is a new, but rather impotent par
ty, eloquently asserts that it is the
sincere champion of the princi
pes of Lincoln, and eyes Mr. Bry
as has claimed that the Debocrat
ic party, as led by him, would com
mand the support of Idncoln were
The ereation of a new party is
no an easy task, a fact that bas
been deaeastrated by the failures
of the Idepeodesee League and
the Prehibition party to make any
headway against the older partie.
Therefore we are inclined to be.
lieve that the latter will continee
to bold the ceater of th political
stae and determine tie result of
elections for many years to eome.
We thiak that Mr. Kirby is mis.
taken in his idea that, new party
is eeded in this country, and we
agwee with .the Baltmore News
that when a majority partyturns
away fr s the. people adl shows
o regard f their welfar sal in
