WVe backf `3t
over the cond I i on
lthis cta in f ag aftnd
Seompari'n It with the present rela
tive situalion of the inhabitant., we
ca:)not but be startled at the change P
that has taken place. The class dis.
tinct ions were rarely e sr meniti,,ied, S
!the doctrine of American equality ir
Sw:,s duly respected and milli uOuit,
were rarely met up with except in a]
sonie rare il .t:::ces where sudden I
and phenomeniIl ilncrease in values
had taken place. While on the al
other hand, extreme property with L
pauperism was scarcely known. et
T'hrift, indusryv, success and con
te,:timcnt, marked the progress of al
ttie working classes all over the w
country. t(
llow far different is the condition
of the people to-day relatively, p
Lordly mansions surrounded with si
hordes of pampered laeqteys, can ri
be found in large nunibers in the u
big cities of the country. Myriads p
of .tionairs living in the lap of m
luxury, apeing the titled. nabobs of
the old world in all their pride and tc
vanity. Anglomaniaes of the most le
pronuinced type removed as far ol
away as possible from the high u
mi:,,led simplicity of the founders al
'of our government. b
I'These are the men who by virtue
of their nionied power crowd to the D
very front of affairs, exercising a C
ruinous influence over the people's ,
interests. 1;
On the other hand, look at the -
poverty, misery and degradation of el
the masse.; in the crowded cities; o
pitiable to behold, yet they are hu
man and belong to the same race of 1
!people as those who move around-in p
mriided coahes, wear fine linnen and C
fare sumptuously every day. Such w
extremes are not in accord with the p
genius of our government. Such 1'
radical distinctions are ruinous to
the good old fashioned doctrine of v
EQUAL, RIGHTS TO ALL. e
A few more strides in the direc- h
tion we have been going of late and e:
the Amerieanrtocracy will soon '1
-, otvie all the viduted pretentions o
Iof Britain's emblazoned nobility. C
While on the other extreme Amleri
can poverty, pauperism and crime n
will rival St. filea, Smithfidd and h
the most celebrated dens of iniqui- n
ty tunder the old mou;archial govern- b
ments. s'
Indeed, to a great extent it seems ii
as though the old world was being c
trauifered intact on to this continent $
and many of its faults and foibles,
foolishly fondled as fashionable fads r
by the purse protud people of Ameri- s
ca; distinctions among mankind ti
must necessarily exist under any P
I form of Government. Industry will
prosper and have its reward, while i
the idle and worthless will of neces- t
sity go to the wall., The shrewd 1
economist will accumulate, wilde the
careless .and shiftless spendthrift will 't
squander. But the extremes here
now existing, are entirely too great p
I for the safety and welfare of a free t
government-a few comparatively t
counting their wealth by the scores
of millions, while the many are hope- t
lessly suffering steeped in penury a
and want. t
There is something unnatural
about such extremes existing, ee-g
pecially in a country founded upon t
liberty and freedom, and so unnat- t
ural that they foreshadow futugre dan- r
ger. The.rich few wilt be puiffed up J
with pride, prejudice and pomposity,
I while the poverty-trlekea many will t
become filled with ansullen disfiontent (

vi p~-iAbe-Detmncrat the following
nutailof the frek1 $. D Carr
ine, wA1o once wa or W oro 1
delt itreet M4thodti Chbr
Nes Or'eans:
Aniogs those who advocated vig
orous mnissionary work were Dra. B.
M. Mu-sick and Beverly Carradine.
Ml'r. Carradiue in jpartiCular was for
,,quippling a nunmlet of gospel-Mwg
u is to go from s: reet to street among
the soultid poitionis of the city" to
spread the doctrine of Christ. Th
only way to reach the pepple, said
D)r. Carraline, is to go to them and
among them. He had spent years
of his life in that sort of work and
knew what it was. He had Leer.
laboring near New Orleans, a hot
led of Catholicism, and had preach
ed the Gospel in the streets when
seutim( !t was so against it that he
was attr.cked with rotten eggs. De
spite the showers of old poultry pro
duct he had kept on with his prea'ch
ing and had finally triumphed. But
every where the eggs were thrown
there was the spot that he resolved
to erect and did build missions.
And briefly criticizes what he psys,
thusly:
It would seem as if Dr. Carradine
to arouse a favorable local feeling in
St.. Louis, had gravely slandered the
people of New Orleanls.
Dr. Carradine is evidently a re
ligious sensationalist of the most
pronounced type. Often in his ex
tremes doing more harm than good
towards the human family.
We find the following excellent
advice to planters in the Crowley
Signal, which we commend to the
attention of our readers:
Cotton planters should not let the
present good prices of cotton lead
them to plant too large an acreage
again next year. If it had not been
that only a half crop of cotton was
tmade this year, the prices would
have sqyed down to last year's
figures when there was an over-pro
duction, or more than there was a
demand for. This proves that if the
acreage in cotton is reduced that the
smaller crops will bring more money
than larger ones that cause over.pro
duction. Diversify your crops,
raise more corn and grain, and stock,
and you will find that it will pay
better than all cotton and all rice.
Election day was a cold, ugly day,
and the people of the Filth Congres
sional District had a dose of physic

and they took Boatner, says the Mert

A very much needed dose to
work off the Populite political
poison out of the district forever

California Very Close.
A special from San Francisco dated
Nov. 28, sad s that the official vote of;
all the counties in California. with the
exception of San Francisco, give Har
rison a plurality of 6,422. The returns
from all but nine precincts in San
Francisco give Cleveland a pluirality
in the city and country of 6,112, re=
ducing flarrison's plurality, as ftr as
the canvass has been completed, in the
State and county to 310. A umber
of irregularities in the returns from
the remrnaiuing precincts in this city
may delay the canvass for a few days.
The figures given from outside coun
ties are based on the.average vote
given for Republican and Democratic
electors. The pluratlity is so small,
and in view of the fact that the vqte
for electors is divided, it is possible
that when the olulial vote ' has been
completed upon individual electors
the electoral vote "may be divided bec
tween Harrison and Cleveland.
Toy Pistols.
It mtnay not be generally known, tha
the sale of toy pistols for eartrldga or
caps is prohibited. Section 1247,-new
code, provides that "if .an~y person
shall sell, or expose for sale, .atry toy
pistol or cartridges or caps of any eon
trivanceby which such pistols are fired
or made to cause an explosion, he shall
be guilty of a misdemeanor, aid on
convilction, shall be panished by a flie
of not less than $6 nor more than $25,,
or imprisonment in the parish jail not
less than three days nor more than
thirty dys,.or buth."
It is sad to think that Mr. iM eeja

answered his questions by telling him. J'
a story which Randolph Tucker told
on'Gen. William Mahone, the Republi
can leader of Virginia and the colored a
man's friend.
There was once an old before.tbe
war negro from Petersburg, Mahone's a
home, named Alexander Macedonian
Taliaferro, called. for short, Rastus
Toliver. The old man was a strong u
believer in Marse Abe Lincum and
swore by Marse Billy Mahone, though e
he had never received his -'forty acres
and a mule-" The old man died and
was buried, but the day after he came c
back to earth and went to his old mas
ter to borrow a mule. Astonished' the e
master asked the old fellow. ,"Why,
Rastus, what are you doing hereP 2
What's the matter with you that you
want a mule?" This is the old darky's E
0
story :
Well, Mlarse George, I'll tell you de v
tnuf, kose I'se sho you'll understan'
BRastus as you has alwayse; it is di
yer way : I got daid, an' I walked up
the steep road to the great big gatesb
ob heaben, and aftah I rung the bell
knob I sat down, kase I was mighty
tiahed. A big voice from inside said:
'Whose dat out dyah?' Says 1: 'Marse
Peter, pleas, sah, hit's me.'
, ,'Whose me?'
",Doan you know me, Marse Peter?
i'ie Uncle Rastas Tolliver, and I hopes D
you is well and all the angles, an' I
wants to get in for to see the place p
whar my ole mistus tole if I was good
when I died I'd be made same hlike she,
white as the driving snow, an' had t
wings like a angle. I'se come mighty
far and hope I has been good nuff; so
Slease Mars Peter let de ole nigger in.'
"Whar's you from?' says he.
,' ,Petersburg,' says I.
" 'Den you mus' know Billy Mahone
says he.
'" I does; he's a reat friend of the
colored people,' says 1,
,' 'W ell, he died this morning an' I
serpope he'll be along soon. P'rhaps f
he'll help you to git in"'
• 'Ob cose he will,' says I.
", ' Is you mounted, RastusP? says
he.
"' MormtedP'
- ' Yes, did you ride up on your
mule?'
"' 'No, sah kase I haven't got any
mule.'
.' ,Well,' says he, 'I guess you can't I
come in less you'se mounted, so good
day, Rastus-'
S"I was powerful sorry an' I picked
r up my hickry an' stabted down de road,
for 1 was fellin', unconunon sad an'
down-in-de-mouf, when all of a sudden
I comes right up against Marse Billy
Mahone, walking wid he haid high up
same like'used to do in wah time, wid
his bran spankin' new uniform of sod
gers close, an' a solid gole sword at his
'hide.
r ,'Hello, Rsstns,' says he; 'whar'se

You'ie always bin the niggers' fren,
