question of annexing those islands

Scommissioners from Honolnlu, the

aniexation so sudd.inly sprung upon
our people. Some of our ruos:
prominent Statesmen have already
pronounced theimelves favorable to
it. Senators Morgan, Sherman,
Butler and others of the committee
on foreign relations have unhesita

able to su.:h an important measure,
giving their reasous that as a naval

The Beacon News in comument

very properly and pttigently says:
Mr. Heard has placed himself in

Both of Louisiana's senators
White and Cafftey-are opposed to
the anti-option bill. Gambling in
the necessaties of life is a greater
curse to the poorer classes than was
the lottery, and yet it looks like our
reform law.makers are disposed to
license that sort of gambling.
The factional inducement for
political ascendency dent exist in
the anti option bill as it did in the
anti¶ottery crusade, hence the moral
complexion of the gambling wears
a different face entirely to the men

The Auditor is still being talked
about because of his unwarranted
raid upon the printers pay. The

This suit settles a matter of more
than ordinary interest to the news
papers of Louisiana, and it corrects
an opinio, given to tax collectors
by Auditor Heard, which he will
doubtless now consider and change.
At the rate charged by the Enter
prise nobody ever saw fit to raise
any objection until Mr. Heard came
into oflfce. His objection must have
been prompted by the supersbund
ance of ",bile" which kept him in
