Britain and the United States, and X

The Shreveport Times says that t
the "second prize to be contested for d
at the encampment is a handsome
ladies watch and chain, to be do- c
nated to the sponsor of the best

worth contending for and should
arouse the pride as well as skill in "

Under the above caption we com- th
mented recently on the proposed M
railroad from Lake Providence to to
Mur Rouge, and expressed the opin- of
ion, from the data then before us, ac
that the construction of said road tii
would angment the danger of over- in
I flow to this district. Since then we in
had the pleasure of meeting Messrs. cc
J. E. Ransdell and Philip McGuire, at
of Lake Providence, who are con
nected with said road, and a talk to
with them, coupled ith an exam- lii
ination of maps and mature consid- a;
eration of the subject convinces us tl
that our first opinion was erroneous. it
These gentlemen assure us that the ei
plan is to build a surface road with
just enough embankment to be above hi
rain water, and they also state that S
I the embankment will be just a= large re
- in the BUeuf swamp as in the Macon, w
I hence no extra amount of water could o
1 be forced through the Baeuf cutoff o
and down on this district by the o
construction of said road, as the emi- e
bankment in one swamp will be off- ti
set by that in the other. a
This view of the case seems cot. f,
a rete, and we cheerfully adopt it. f
These gentlemen are very sanguine n
that the road will be in operation at v
e an eatly day if they receive the fran- r
chises and aid from our levee board, t
and from the different parishes that a
the) expect. We sincerely hope so. -
" Such a road would be of immense i
:t benefit to the parishes of East and t
d West Carroll and Morehouse. The l
1e two former have no railroad, and f
this road running west through the t
t center of these parishes and connect
ing the Mississippi river with the r
Houston Central, would place our t
Carroll friends in connection with
athe big world, and cause a rapid
ar development of their rich resources. t
Speculation About The Fall Elec
Id Much importance attaches to the re
in sult of the elections in Ohio and Ken- t
tucky this year, owing to the fact that 1
" free salver coinage has been made the
issue, and the whole country will tol
low the contests in those States with 1
a absorbing interest, because it is evident
at this time that the light will be red
hot and exciting. In Kentucky the
d' sound money Democrats will battle for
iy the vindication of Carlisle, Watterson,
es Lindsay and other of their leaders who
refused . to stand upon the platform
'o adopted at Chicago. They are enthu
as siastic, w'ell organized and confident
or that they will j!ect their ticket or at
least succeed in defeating that nomi
he nated by the silver Democrats. On
ty the other hand the silver men are
equally confident of victory, and are
claiming that they will carry the State
by between 25,000 and 50,000 majority.
In Ohio there will be a three-concerned
f- tight, as the Republicans, silver DI)emo.
w crate and gold Democrats will have
tickets in the field. The main struggle
will be for thecontrol of the legislature
Sand the election of a United States
bt Senator to succeed Mark IHanna, and
id all sides are preparing for an active
campaign, the stumping of every
e- county and the distriations of tons of
is political literature.
of Conservative men, who have given
some time to the study of the political
situation in Ohio say that the advan
tage apparently rests with the Repub
Slicans by reason of the fact that they
is- are well organized, will have at their
Sdisposal an immense campaign fund,
and will receive the support of the ad
y ministration and the National Republi
Is. can committee. There are elements,
as however, entering into the Ohio cam
Spaign which will make the result ex
ll tremely doubtful and may bring about
it the overwhelming defeat of the Repub
te lican party. Nearly all the owners of
d large coal mines in the State are promi
nent Republicans and the miners' strike
e. together with the general disgust in
spired by the trust tariff bill, will in
ts- all probability help the DI)emocrats, but
to what extent nobody can say and no
body will know until the votes are poll
as ed and counted.
tto Ex-Gov. Campbell and other Demo
o cratic leaders are sanguine of victory
in November, and give as reasons for
he the faith that is in them that the silver
ay Republicans and the Populists have
ne decided not to put out State tickets and
he to support that nominated by the regu
lar Democrats, as well as the latter's
uas candidates for the legislature. It is

Sto crats will make heaty gains among the

de- was promised in the event of McKin

ti out, manifest among a number of
.e our citizens in the case of the recent n

against the tax. Thlie competition
