Friday afternoon, last week, J. P.
Close was shot and killed by D. P.
Saizan, at the latter's store at Barry's
Landing on Bayou Courtableau, nine
miles from Opelousas. Close lived in
that neighborhood. He had been to
Opelousas that day; and he and a com
panion went in a buggy to Saisan's
store. While his ecompanion went in-i
to the store, Close remained in thei
buggy. We have not been able to
learn if any altercation took place at
the time between Saizan and Close,
but Saizan shot him with both bar
rels of his gun. Saizan came to Ope
lousas and surrendered. He was let
to bail in the sum of $5000 till yester
day when the preliminary examination
was to begin. The plea will be self
defense. There was a feud between
the parties, and the death of one or
both was expected by those cognizant
of the facts.
On Friday night last week the Phil
harmonic Association held its third
annual meeting, and the following of
ficers were elected for the ensuing
year: J. J. Thompson president, J.
T. Skipper first vice president, J. M.
Ware second vice president, Austin
Lacombe treasurer, A. J. Bercier finan
cial secretary, F. Voorhies recording
secretary. After the election a select
and prepared programme of delightful
music and sweet singing was executed
in a most artistict manner, with much
enjoyment to the appreciative audi
ence. Champagne and cake were the
chosen refreshments, and last but not
least, a delil gg-nog prepared by
Mrs. A. Lacombe. umerous and ap
propriate toasts were nk, and until
a very late hour the boys and girls en
joyed the Teedlchorean to their hearts'
content. B.
During Christmas and New. Year's
time here everybody had plenty to eat
and enjoyment seemed to be general.
But in London particularly, though
distress prevails in all large cities dur
ing the winter season, there was a
large and unusual number of suicides
on the night of December 31st, daused
by poverty, cold and hunger, and the
imposibility of getting employment.
That will be the case in the more
nordhern sections of this country,
when a dense population axn the ac
cumulation of nearly all the wealth in
the hands of a few, shall have reduced
the great mass of the people to hope
less poverty. That day, if possible to
prevent it, should never be allowed to
.ome; "in peace we should be prepared
for war."
About three o'clock last Monday
afternoon a fire broke out in the hay
loft of Generes' livery stable. The
horses, vehicles and harness were
saved; the building, a small quantity
of corn, and several tons of hay, were
consumed. On account of the isola
tion of the burning building, and by
the efforts of the fire companies and
others, the fire did not spread. The
building belonged to Capt. H. L. Gar
land, and was not insured. The cause
assigned by those present for the fire,
is spontaneous combustion. We do
not share in that belief. The hay had
been there several months, and the
loft was quite shallow; the heating
process should have terminated some
time since.
The goods in the store of Mr. Arthur
Veltin, at Callliham's Bridge, burned
on New Year's eve, were insured with
Clements & Stagg, general insurance
agents, Opelousas, for $3000. The
building was not insured. The store
and goods of Dr. J. A. McMillan, at
Church Point, was burned on Jan. 1st.
The building and goods were insured
with Clements & Stagg, for $1500. A.
GenerA' livery stable building, burned
in Opelousas,last Monday, was owned
by Capt. H. L. Garland, and not in
sured.
The force bill having failed to pass,
the negro problem-a mythgical
one to us-will be left to take care of
itself. The colored people, like all
other people, fill find their place
naturally in the general thixture of
humanity, and they will stay there.
When let alone, there is no problem;
the effort to put them in an unnatural
position, makes the problem. The
Farmers' Alliance has solved that pro
blem.
Rev. Dr. Carradine has suddenly
comine down on all secret societies, be
cause, for one reason, they take hus
bands away from their wives. He
must be a bachelor. We have heard
married women say they did not want
their husbands sitting about the
house in their way all the time; and
as for the married men, they know
just how it is for themselves, without
any information.
The people want more money in
circulation. When gold is scarce like
diamonds, only the rich can afford to
have it. Let all the silver be coined,
and made good as gold proportionally,
and turned loose on the country. Then
will the people have a sufficient me
dium of exchange, and be independent
of the gold monopolists.
The Indian battles in the middle of
a Northern winter, that have been so
destructive of the lives of the troops as
well as of the Indians, can have but
one explanation: the Indians are
starving on government rations. If
the Indians voted, they would be bet
teitaken care of.

thanks for an invitation to attend the
marriage of her daughter, Miss Marie
Dejean to Mr. Alfred J. Dupre, at

We are pained to announce the death
of Hon. Willis Prescott, State Senator
from this district, which occurred -at
the Hotel Dieu, New Orleans, last Wed
nesday, at the age of 51 years. He had
-been in bad health for a long time, and
had recently visited Sour Lake, Texas,
in search of relief; returning, he went
to New Orleans for treatment, a few
weeks before his death. He was buried
yesterday at his old home and among
his relatives and friends in Washing
ington, La. Several years ago he rep
resented this parish in the State legis
lature, and was elected to the Senate,
from this district, on the Democratic
ticket in 1888. He was a widower,
and left several children; his wife a
daughter of the late CoL William Of
futt, died several years ago. Senatgr
Prescott was greatly liked by those who
had the pleasure of his acquaintance.
He was gentlemanly, sociable and en
tertaining; and no one could spend an
hour with him without having pleas
ant recollections of him. His family
and relatives have our warmest sympa
thies in their sore bereavement.
The Moral Import of the Fqarmers' Al
liance.
The Rights of Labor.
NEW YORK, Dec. 7th, 1890.
Rev. Thomas Dixon, Jr., pastor of
the Twenty-third street Baptist church,
was greeted this morning by the usual
crowded house in Association Hall.
The sermon was the beginning of a
new series for December, on the sub
ject: "What is religion?" The ser
mon was preceded by the following re
view of current events :
"The real sensation of the year 1890
is the advent of the National Farmers'
Alliance and Industrial Union. It is
no mushroom growth. It is here to
stay. It is the resistless movement of
millions under the oppressions of cen
turies. Its motive power is social,
economic, religious and political. The
advent of those embattled hosts is the
most pregnant event of this genera
tion. It is the beginning of
A REVOLUTION,
that will shake this continent and
move the world.
The first time they gathered around
the ballot box was the 4th day of last
November. They polled between two
and three million votes, elected the
governors of three states, sent forty
men to congress and scared the life
out of hundreds they did not send.
What is
THE MORAL MEANING
of this great movement?
1. It is the protest of the patient
burden-bearers of the world, who have
toiled through weary years, struggling
beneath the wrongs of economic and
political Superstitions. In America
the farmers have literally become the
beasts of burden of the nation. Their
business has been to feed over 65,000,
000 people, together with the hosts of
the old world, with the products of the
year's work, and then through the
winter eke out a miserable existence
wrestling with their
MORTGAGES, CYCLONES AND FLOODS.
While they are doing this, we laugh
and grow fat, dance and make merry
in the city, and bet how much they
will make next year, buy and sell their
crops fifty times before they are plant
ed and charge old "Hayseeds" with all
our losses.
The question is whether these men,
the freest of the free, the authors of
this country's liberty, shall assert their
rights and obtain justice, or degener
ate into the condition of tenants and
serfs. The conditions of labor in all
other industries have undergone mar
velous development and change in the
past hundred years. The farmer
works under the same stern conditions,
perishing in the midst of boundless
prosperity, for others. He has de
termined to effect a change in these
conditions and re-adjust himself
on a living basis to the new civiliza
tion.
2. This movement means the
EDUCATION OF THE MASSES,
as masses-of the farmer as a farmer.
It means the assertion of the manhood
of the yeomen of the nation. This is
real education. The accent of our
education has hitherto been to get on,
"to rise." We have been taught to
climb out of the humble sphere into
which we were born into some so-call
ed higher sphere. The smith learns
r to despise his anvil, and the clodhop
r per to look with contempt upon the
I plow. They rise to "higher" things.
They become lawyers, and doctors, and
preachers, and bankers, railroad men
!and politicians. We now have fully
eight million men in this country eda
cated to be presidents ot the United
States. We only need about a
dozen presidents in a hundred years
-an awful waste of raw material !
The farmers are learning and teach
ing it to their children, in this or
ganization, that the work of the farm
is as sacred, as noble, as that of any
sphere in life. Women, too, are ad
mitted to the order. There are more
farmers' wives in the insane asylums
of America than any other class.
They have actually recognized the fact
that
WOMAN IS A HUMAN BEING.
A reporter once asked an old farmer
in the west what he thought of the
question "Is marriage a failure?" He
replied: "What, marriage? Well,
let's see. There's Luncindy gits up in
the mornin', kindles the fire, milks six
cows, starts four children off to school,
tends to three others, skims twenty
pans o' milk, feeds the hens, likewise
the hogs, looks after some motherless
sheep, gits breakfasfr washes up the
dishes, gits dinner, et cetery-why
now, do you think I could hire any
body to do all that for what she gits?"
Not much ! It's a great success, sir !"
Ah, these patient, sad-faced,. weary
millions of women! The pathos of
their lives! They have entered this
organization with cheeks flushed with
hope, many of them for the first time
in life. May God lead and bless
them.
3. This movement means
co-OPERATION AS AGAINST COMPETITICN.
It is in this principle of socialism
that the order has its strongest found
ation. They are pledged to co-operate
with each other in the production of
economic goods, and not only so, but
to co-operate in the distribution of
these goods. The alliance stores for
supplies are a prominent feature of
their work. These stores contain the
germ idea of the great industrial co
operative societies of workingmen in
Great Britain. They are asserting in
life the principle that it is better for
men to fight for one another than
against one another. They are learn
ing the secret of associated power
that in union there is strength. It is
in the light of this fact that we solve
the apparent paradox that while they
cry out against trusts and monopolies,
in the same breath they demand that
the government oppress its functions
to the very verge of state socialism.
These cries are not inconsistent. They
are the assertion of fundamental prin
ciples. They recognize the fact that
government is not something separate
from the people, but when normally
administered, is simply the people
governing themselves--that it is not
a power to be forced, but a power
to be utilized for the - happiness of all
4. The organization: means brother
hood. It is a fraternal and benevolent
order with prineiples'"folrov ~ anEd
fraternity, wide as the world, universal
as the rose.
The fifth and sixth ;articles in their
St. Louis Declaration of Purposes,
A SECOND DECLARATION OF INDEPEN
DBMCE, .
read thus.
5. To constantly strive to secure
entire harmony and good will to all
mankind, and brotherly love among
ourselves.
6. To suppress personal, local sec
tional and national prejudices, all un
healthy rivalry, and all selfish ambi
tion."
An ideal as high as heaven-an echo
of the life of Jesus of Nazareth. They
have determined to "bear one another's
burdens and so fulfill the law of
Christ." They pledge themselves to
alleviate suffering and pain, to care
for the widows agd educate the orphans
of their dead. This is climbing the
heights of life. This is pure religion
undefiled.
They have not goneinto politics be
cause they are a political organization.
They have been
FORCED TO GO INTO POLITICS
because their general principles were
social, economic arid religious. All
social and economic questions have
become political questions, and all po
litical questions are religious. The
political arena is where all the great
questions of to-day and to-morrow
must be fought and settled.
Let no man deceive himself by be
lieving that this organization is a
passing episode in politics. Remem
ber its foundation is not primarily
political, but social and economic. It
is the embodiment of grand moral
ideas-it is the movement of a revolu
tion. It will not go backward. May
God give its leaders wisdom.
Sale of a Lottery Orgaa.
A special to the New Delta from
Amite city of December 17th says :
W. H. McClendon, editor and pro
prietor of the Florida Parishes, a re
cently established anti-lottery paper
published at this place, has purchased
the Amite city Gazette, the local lot
tery organ. The Gazette will be merg
ed into the Florida Parishes. The cause
of the sale was lack of support. This
is first of what is predicted will be a
series of suspensions of publications
that have sold their columns, to the lot
tery gang.
The Alexandria Town Talk says:
After runing down old Louisiana for
six months, and hating told the world
that she was a peaper-so poor and
debt-ridden that she could not exist
without the license from that big for
tune wheel concern, (the Lottery),
certain papers have faced about, drop
ped the "pauperised" song, and are
now inviting immigrants to come to
this State to reside. This move was
undoubtedly made at the instance of
the "Master," in New Orleans, who
expected the antis to grow lukewarm
as the Lottery press ceased to talk
Lottery. In the meantime the Master
and his partners the Progressive (1)
Ieague are posting leaflets to every
postofSie and every white voter in the
State.
The Musical Flower.
BY 5RTTA sAPPHO LITT RI.
My guitar's music, so clear and wild,
Has many a weary hour beguil'd;
Oft, oft I sit 'neath the starry night,
O'er its lithe chords my fingers run light,
As I list to its music sweet, and sad,
And I wonder if hearts can e'er be glad.
Life, like a dream, is miserably sweet;
We list to music, one moment fleet,
We catch a note of a spherical strain,
Turn to list, it has vanimshed again.
Oft when alone, my soul seems to be
Filled with an exquisite melody,
Like a wild sweet chant, it wings a flight
With the guitar's music thro' the night.
Then suddenly, like an ocean lulled,
Or a beauteous blossom by rude hands cul'd,
The sweet music is silent and hushed,
' The soul," a musical flower, is crushed.
