The breezy impudence, with which
the Item talks about flopping, is d,
as astonishing as it is instructive. T
When that bantling started it, bi
proudly boasted that it had the a
support of the best men of the ei
parish, the big planters, the large tl
property holders. Everybody that
is familiar with the affairs of Mad-i t
ison parish knows this. The very Ii
men to whom the Item acknowl-! 4
edged deep obligations, who took l
such an interest in it, and talked t,
it up, both for advertisers and sub- t<
scribers are opposed to the course i "
now being pursued by the Item. A
Are the same men now upholding
the Item ? Not that anybody know .
of. The Item deserted them and c
declared for McEnery while its old b
ha' kers, to whom that ungrateful a
sheet owes so much, are for Nich- tl
oils, and yet it has the unblushing iý
assurance to talk about flopping.
As for the TIMx* it never flops. i
It is true to the n.eii who backed t
it with their friendship and sup- v
"port-not l"th money however. t
Its influence never has been, and I
never can be, bought. 'Till the a
Item can show as good a record, it
would be more to its credit that it a
. should avoid the subject of flop- s
ping. The TIsMs is under no ob-.
ligation to McEnery, certainly, un- I
der no obligations to Nicholls. It t
is under no obligations to ,
anybody ,aside of Mad
ison p. h. The men it i
started in to support, it propose' d
to stay wirc. It has that confi- tl
dence in them, that it does not and a
Icannot believe they would do any t
political act that good democrats a
will not do. It stays with them, t1
and they are not Nicholls men.
The TiMs needs no elaborate de- *
fence, and it, is not necessary to 'l
I shout. It is sufficient to say that a
. it is not supporting Nicholls but s
stands in paralyzed astonishment
to see the Item making a hearty e
e meal of a new and rare dish. the t
I ingredients of which are red cir- <
t cular and McEnery. ,How they
t can be made to make a harmoniousa
whole, is what astonishes the
WILOING A3 VSUAL.
The Item asserts that the Tinms
S'was down on Gibson but now its
flopped." When the Item first
started, it indulged in the moseet ex
travagant assertions, and for the
Sfrst two months or so of its exist
ence it was kept busy retracting
d statements that it had made. Un
•' improved by this experience it re
news the same old policy. A mis
statement is made either in error
or with deliberate malice. Now
the Tivis said not a word to indi
s cate thatit was "down on Gibson,"
elneither has it advocated the re
I nomination of Gen. Gibson. It
r consequently could not have been
" 'down on" him, nor have flopped.
B The Item has simply made a mis
statement, either with malicious
intent or from the fact that the
I writer who wrote it, was not around
Swhen the brains were distributed.
,I Of course this is unfortunate, and
can't be helped, but when a man
is in such a condition his friends
ought to take care of him.
In the matter of mileage fees it
may be said that they are part of
the perquisites of the Tax-Collect
or's ol6ice, and that he is entitled
Sto mileage in ueah case of seisure.
That there may be several parties,
seized on one plantation, does not
, deprive the collector of his legal
fees, and there is no law that says
Sit dor. As a clincher the asser
:tion is made that no lawyer has
Sever qustionod one of Capt.
' Holmes' bills of fees.

heat and turmoil of polities, to

Sviprous eampaign, in the serene
* eentemplatiomn of a yield of nine
rbailes of cotton from an area of
n. six acres.
This was done, this season, by
- Mr. J. H. Giifoil, the energetic
assessor of Madison Parish, and it
Swa done on land not of the best.
It was with the Peterkin cotton,
that this result was attained, and

The sun shines, to-day, on a '
depressed and disappointed cro wd.
The McClellan.Montgomery cornm
bination, so boastful andl confident'
a few weeks ago, are now disheart-,
ened and almost ready to give up
the struggle, or ougl.t to be.
They had planned out what they
thought to be a winning canspaigr .
It looked easy, and appeared a
sure thing. The following of Mr.i
Montgomery, which was thought;
to be large, was considered as sure
to go, as went Mr. Montgomery.
The following of Mr. McClellan
while not so sure to go, as went Mr.
McClellan, was still considered as
safe to go against IHlInes. and the,
combination was expected to carry 3
both hmen through, with a whirl 3
and land them safely, the one in
the Senatorial chair and the other
in the coveted sheriirs ollice.
A thorough canvass of the ja -
ish confirmed this cheerful view t f
things, and the plan of campaign
was further embellished, with tde
tails as to other oflices, and it has
been said, even to just how the
mass meeting was to be handled.
and made to whirl the right way,
Iat the right time. Things were so
satisfactory, and the canvass had
been so complete, that the Parish
Executive Committee was induced
to hold a meeting and decide on
what was to be done. The
meeting was duly held, but to the
intense, and perfectly apparent,
disappointment of the Combine,
the Committee called the mass
meeting for a day some weeks dis
tant, instead of the following week,
as hoped for and anticipated by
It was at this juncture that the
"other fellows" took the field.
The TIMES presented the case, and
some of the "other fellows" took
short cuts through the woods, and
I 'sorter" got around and about so
| effectively, that the Combine had
e to grease up their joints and get
-down to real hard work, in order
! to maintain their ground. It was
a not a struggle for new converts,
e but a despairing effort to retain the
brethren already thought to be in
ithe fold. The effort was vain. II;
lots of two here, three there, scat
tering ones everywhere; the sheep,
broke out of the pasture, in spite
i of the most frantic efforts to retain
them, and rallied to the "other
Cfellows" in a manner dishearten
Sing in the extreme. It was found I
g that the Montgomery following
could not be held for McClellan,
and the McClellan following would
not stand Montgomery, and the
r Combine was a failure.
F Where now, is the confidence, so
apparent in the early stages of the
game? It takes a microscope to
see it, and in about another week
even that searching instrrment will
Snot avail to discover the traces.
The "other fellows" are the men
who now display confidence. They
Ssat still and let the combine lay
e their plans, and get their campaign
laid out, and proceeded quietly to
counteract it. They knew that no
such combine could win, and it has
Snot, and can't. It was too inhar
a monious, the elements had no af
finity. The combine is weak, in
effective, a failure.
