AND TOWN OF NEW IBERIA.
A HEALTH RECORD BREAKER.
The deaths in New Orleans
reached last week the lowest figure
known here. There were iu all only
S3 deaths.makiup the death rate per
1000 per annum 13.12 for the whites
and 14.39 for the entire population,
white and black. The total includes
five deaths by accident or snicide,
leaving the mortality from disease
only 11.96 per thousand for the
whites, would give an average dura
tion of life of ^4 years ; that is. if
this low rate of mortality could be
kept up in New Orleans for a long
period of time the average white
person here would reach the august
age of 84.
It is to be remembered that the
figures for New Orleans are not
based on inflated estimates of popu
lation. The census has just shown
that Cincinnati inflated its popula
tion ^0,000, aud that its death
rate was based on these exaggerated
figures, with the resnlt of making
the city appear far healthier than
it really is. Chicago is also fouud
to have inflated its population 3S0,
000. With such swollen figures it
is easily possible to make a good
sanitary record, for the deaths that
would seem a small total for a city
of 2,000,000 are large for one of
1,600,000. On the other, haud the !
death rate in New Orleans is based
on very nearly the same population
as the last census gave the city. Onr
Board of Health indulges in no
wild guesses or inflation, and the
estimate will certainly not be 10,01)0
out of the way from the actual total
returned ; indeed, such hints as
j have come ont in regard to the
I census indicate that the estimated
population upon which the Board
of Health has based its figures is
below instead of above its actual
But to return to the report. It
shows, what has frequently been
I shown before, that the summer is
the healthiest season in NewOrleans
its death rate falling to half what it
is during the worst part of the win
ter. Taking last week as a sample
when two-thirds of the country was
suffering from one of the worst hot
waves ever known, while persons
were dying by the hundreds iu
Chicago, New York and other
Northern and Western cities from
sunstroke and other heat diseases
there was not a single death from
any heat malady in New Orleans
indeed, cholera infantum, the
sconrge of New York dnring hot
weather and far more murderous to
the children than King Herod him
self, claimed but two victims in
New Orleans for the whole week
We would say further that for a
number of weeks previous the re
turns have been nearly equally
satisfactory, but not quite as good
as for last week, which we call at
tention to because it is a record
The press dispatches show that
the allied forces entered Pekin
without opposition, on the 16th,
and the foreign ministers who have
for weeks been besieged in the
British legation, were relieved, and
no doubt are now on their way un
der escort to Tien Tsin. The fact
that the allies were unopposed
shows that the imperial government
of China is not desirous of having
a war with the world, and there is
now much reason to believe that
peaceful conditions will be restored
in the empire and a conflict avoided
which would have been the blood
iest in all history.
A repetition of the scenes enacted
in New Orleans a few week ago by
an indiscriminate mob of whites
who killed and assaulted negroes
because of the killing of police of
ficers by a negro desperado, was
witnessed in New York this week
nnder similar circumstances. A
police officer attempted the arrest
of a disorderly negro ; he was set
npon by several darkies and cnt to
pieces with razors. The white men
of that locality tnrned ont and
wreaked vengeauce upon the blacks
indiscriminately,killing and wound
ing a large number. Like in New
Orleans, the police of New York
was in sympathy with the rioters,
and it was not until mooh mischief
had been done that the officers were
induced to perform their duty and
suppress the rioters.

The New York World mentions
the case of an Omaha woman who
bought for $10 a guarantee from
the spirit world that her next child
would be a boy. When the child
arrived it proved to be twins and
girls. Instead of congratulating her
self on the superior good sense and
generosity of the spirits the woman
had the internediary in the trans
action thrown into jail.

X. Y. Journal of Aug. 16.
Each of these three notable New
York Dem erats is a leader iu his
own way. and all spoke and voted
against Bryan in 1S96. Each sets
forth th< reasons which coustrain
him to speak aud vote for Bryan
The issue on wiiich they return
to Democracy is Imperialism. Mr
Cockran s letter was read to the
Liberty Congress at Indianapolis.
When Chairman Smith, in his
Bryan, the cheering was the loudest
aud most significant heard during
Mr. Cockran's letter had a simi
lar. but intensified effect upon the
Liberty Congress. He declared
that "When the Republic is in dan
ger the only place for the patriot
is in the ranks of its active defend
ers." He showed that the silver
issue was not a "danger,'' and de
clared that Bryan's open fight for
free coiuage compelled the Repub
licans -insincerely" to adopt the
gold standard. He spoke of
Bryan's integrity and truthfulness
as "among the most salutary in
fluences of this generations."
Mr. Shepard, in an interview
here yesterday, declared impt rial
ism to be the prime issue. "If a
panic be necessary to preserve our
ideal of democratic self-govern
meut," he said, "it is a small
price to pay. We have in 1900 a
speech, alluded to the presence of
many who preferred to support
true battle for the pecedenoe of the
man over the dollar."
Perry Belmont declares that if
McKinley is reelected, "there will
be an end of the great political
experiment based upon the strict
observance of our written Consti
The Liberty Congress enthusias
tically declared itself in favor of

N. Y. Siofle Taxers Organizing for
Bryan and Stevenson.
The single tax men of New York
have done a sensible thing iu or
ganizing a "Bryan and Stevensou
single tax campaign committee."
Henry George, Jr., is the president,
with Montague R. Leverson as rec-1
retary. The treasurer is Jerome
O'Neill, one of the oldest and most
active of Henry George's disciples
Not only is this a sensible proceed
ing but it is an appropriate tribute
at this time to the memory of
Henry George. For Mr. George
realized, no one better, that a vital
issue was pending in this country,
which even before he died had be
gun to take shape. On the eve of
the presidential election of 1896 he
"What is really in issue in the
election that takes place to-morrow
is the very life of the republic. It
may not be a final conflict, but it
must be a conflict that will make
the side that wins stronger and the
side that loses weaker for con
flicts yet to come. And it is draw
ing near to the close of the oeutury
when, as I have long thought, the
great struggle must in fact though
not in form, be determined."
It was part of Henry George's
greatness that he could distingush
essence from form. He knew that
the elementary rights of men to
the use of the earth might very
likely, most, probably would, be
determined in struggles in which
that particular question would not
be formally at: stake.
He saw it as au uunamed is
sue in the campaign of 1896 ; he
foresaw it as the unnamed issue of
1900. And so it proves to be. The
paramount issue of imperialism
paramount issue of imperialism
essentially involves all that Henry
George contended for. With a
popular awakening upon that issue
there cannot fail to be a popular
awakening npon the issue that is
inseparably associated with George's
name. A tide is rising which
George's followers can, if they
will, take at its flood. Or they
may let the flood pass while they
amuse themselves with imitation
politics. The New York single
tax men, with George's eldest son,
confidant aud biographer, as presi
dent, have seized the opportunity.
Describing themselves in their call
as "dedicated to the principle of
equal rights, by which all forms
of privilege shall be abolished and
every man shall be free to enjoy
the full fruits of his labor," they
declare their alliance "with the
democratic party of the country in
this presidential contest, with a
deep and fervid couviction that
such action is required by the sacred
cause of human right;" and
solemnly pledging themselves for
this struggle, they call upon their
"single tax brethren throughout
the nation" to join them "heart
and sonl in an earnest effort to
carry to a triumphant issue the
candidacy of Bryan and Stevenson. ' '
In 1859 Lincoln said that the
Republican party believed in "the
man and the dollar." They nçw be
lieve in "the man with the dollar."
The Value of Personal Experience.
The Commercial Advertiser, of
New York at great length berates
Carl Schurz and Bonrke Cockran
for speaking against Bryan in 1896
and for him in 1900.
Carl Schurz is reminded that he
said iu 1896 that Bryan's election
would be accomplished "at the price
of national honor," and that "16
to I" would make this nation stand
before the world as "a wanton,

The Boston Herald is compelled
to pay Mr. Bryan a tribute of praise ;
as "this assault upon common
honesty and upon industry."
The Commercial Advertiser wants
to know if Bryanisin is any better
now than then.
Nothing exasperates a partisan
more than to lose a convert. Cock

Kinleyism and they don't like it.

Senator and Secretary of the Treasury in
the cabinet of Gen. Grant, was selected as
permanent chairman of the convention of
anti-imperialists which assembled in In
dianapolis on the 15th. His address to
the delegates was a vigorous attack upon
imperialism and his declaration that he
leaves the Republican party because it has
surrendered to despotie and tyrannical
motives aroused the convention to the
highest pitch of enthusiasm. In the con
cluding part of his speech, Mr. Boutwell
"I helped create the Republiean party,
a party at that time of justice and princi

party of injustice and despotism, and I
will help to destroy it. And howf There is
but one available means, and you know
what that is. Iam for Bryan. (Tremen
dous applause.) I am for Bryan in spite of
what he may believe concerning the cur
rency or finances of the country. This
question to which we invite the country's
attention is a question of life or death to
the republie. In sueh a crisis, shall we
stop to consider whether silver should be
worth more or less than it is. If a mistake
is made in the next administration, should
Bryan be elected, the people can remedy
it in four or eight years. The country
would not be destroyed. If the currency
is impaired we can redeem it. It was im

of Kansas, announces that he will

what we can do, but what we ought
to do. The nation can do whatever
it desires to do, but it must accept
responsibility for what it does. If
