utation of being hard headed, and
when he takes the bits between his a
teeth, he generally does as he please
es. A few days ago he publicly an- L
nounced that General Miles was to b
be bounced for his impudence, but
since the interview had with Sen- I
ators Hoar and Allison, he has de. C
cided to let him remain at the head t
of the army. They very frankly I
told the President that public senti- Y

a move would be hurtful to the ie- T

A special of the 20th from Boston d
says that "never before has Boston c
seen such a vigorous enforcement of
any law on the statute-books as that
given the Sunday laws today. Drug o
stores, fruit dealers, bakeries and f
laundris were the .objects of the rI
police 4ttack. From one end of P
the city to the other soda fountains "
were silent, candy counters covered
and fruit stores closed. On the
other hand,, hotels did a rushing
business, as liquor could be sold by
them to patrons ordering food."
What a farce. t
The memory of old Bea Butler, ur
of Massachusetts, who has beenri
dead for several years, is now being P
pretty freely aired by the people i
who knew him best. The proposi. tb
tion to erect a monument to his it
memory by the legislature brought C
out some of his traits of character-
stealing; and there were several hi
speeches made by the most promin. to
ent citizens of the State against it,
who said that a man who had such
an unsavory character as Beo BRat- (
ler, should not be honored by a to
"Persons who deposit money in a ar
bank, which subsequently fails, lose fl
more or less of their money-seld- t
om all of it-bat they do not lose 0

Public Ledger. "It, is too often th
the case that those who have no
faith in banks, bat hide their money a
at home, lose not only all their th
wealth, but their lives as well. th
Yesterday the Ledger reported two co
asuch eases in this State alone. Rob

AT COTTON SEED AND WHISKY.
MR EoIToR:-The past season has
been a prosperous one to the planters
in the vicinity of Lake Providence. I
have never raised a finer crop; I plant
I e exclusively Jackson's African Limb
less seed and the yield averaged one
. bale and a half to the acre. It is the
most prolitic seed I ever planted; the
stock being limbless, it caq be planted
in narrow rows and close in the drill.
But this prosperity has brought mis
fortune. The negro men and women
are drinking to great excess, and are
fast becoming a lot of drunken vaga
ya' I have sent to Lake Providence since
at last September by my tenants $8,000
in cash orders, two-thirds of which has
been spent in whisky. crap-shooting
and on dissolute women. Thedrunken
ter orgies of a Saturday evening at Lake
If Providence are extremely disgusting
and shocking to all sense of decency.
Under police protection I have been in
td- the slums of New York and Paris. and
ny in the White Chapel districtof London,
but I have never witnessed such moral
on turpitude as I saw in Lake Providence
re- one Saturday evening not long ago.
he I looked into one saloon, behind lattice
work, and I saw negro women expos
ing their persons for the price of a
drink to a lot of drunken men, and
these women the wives of other men,
tand the language they used was horri
he If we have a few more good crops,
to the negro men and women of East
Carroll will become a lot of druken
beast-human cattle. Then who will
10 be here to cultiyate our fine river
an bottom lands?
he The planters should call a halt, hold
a meeting to devise means to regulate
if the whisky traftice and if possible, to
ke save- the negro race from self des
* truction and our young white men
handling whisky from demoralization.
My negroes tell me there are
let several saloons run by negroes, in
,t. which negro men meet every Sunday
to drink and play craps behind clospi
doors in those saloons.
to Doubtless what is done in Lake
be Providence of a Saturday night and
Sunday in the way of crap shooting
r and whisky drinking by negro men
be and women, is done in every saloon In
e this parish, and perhaps, worse, be
t cause no policemen are near and the
license to sell whisky is cheaper in the
al parish than in the town. I talked to
to two members of hbe Police Jury and
begged them not to lower the license
this year. but put it higher; yet they
reduced the license 50 per cent. What
relief is;there'to be found when the Sun
day law is a dead letter and the whisky
P power dominates this parish? Are
od our church members and good oitizens
is always to lie dormant and not exert
the great moral power they always
have in every civilized communityP
n- Did not the preachers and christians
to break up the lottery crime in Louis
ianal Can they not stamp out the
whisky power that controls elections?
n- I bave never heard a preacher in East
e, Carroll inveigh in the pulpit against
the appalling drunkeness and gambling
that is almost universal in our parish.
ly What has Dr. Parkhurst done in New
i. York for reform? Who caused the
h election of Mayor Seth Low? What
carried Cromwell's armies to victory?
e-r The Hymns they sang when they went
into battle! What caused the settle
meat of America at Plymouth iRock
in 1620, amid the hardships and the
' dangers of savagesP The power of
n conscience and religious enthusiasm!
Indeed the religious sentiment of a
people when aroused. Is invincible.
it The church represents the conscience
g of a people, and when aroused, can de
d feat at elections the whisky power.
Why cannot a cburcb committee
e raid these saloons of a Sunday and get
f proof. which our district Judge tells
me cannot be had on account of the
perjury of witnesses before our grand
d and petit juries.

So thoroughly bad the bill been con- t
