THE PROGRESS
,'AL D. HICKS, Editor.
SHREVEPORT. LA., MAY 7, 1S32.
The Farmer and the Silver Bill-Chas ng
an Ignis Fatuus.
Without going in:to tile details
.f tbhe re'asons thcrefor. the fact
remains that there is a defliciency
,f money in circulation: that the
luantity of products placed in the
market is greatly in excess of the
money to purchase it with, and for
this, as one reason, the country is
in a financial strait, and the farmer
is the greatest suffer thereby.
Realizing his position, he is en
leavoring to remedy the matter by
having a greater volume of money
placed in the business channels,and
has grasped the silver bill as the
Hntering wedge into the treasury
vaults,'and is bending every ener
.,y to have this wedge inserted,
find in this he is ably seconded by
the caen who own mines of this
valuable metal. For several ses
sions of Congress. if we mistake
not %is bill, or one similar, has
:s.n pressed for passage, only to
be repulsed and beaten, if not by
me house, then by the President's
veto. And why, asks the farmer,
cannot this bill be made a law and
relieve the country from its dis
tremsed condition ! The answer,
.o us, is plain; because you are
triving to make the United States
Treasury a market place where
these silver mine owners can sell
their metal for from 25 to 30 per
rent more than can be gotten for
it :a the legitimate trade market.
In their endeavors to increase the
volume of currency in circulation
the farmers are made the cat's paw
;f the silver men, to force the
~anited States government to pur
chase their metal at a price ticti
tious in value to a ru'nous degree,
even to a nation as strong as ours.
'To the mine owners the passage
of the present bill would be the
nnearthing of tr. sres beyond
:t.iluams f Cr~oe. s. With the
"free and unlimited coinage of sil
.ec" as the law, which means that
the United States government
shall pay to every man who de
mands it, $1 for every 78 cents
worth of silver he presents at the
m usury doors. No wonder, then,
that the bill, in that form, has al
ways been lost. "ruot, farmer
biands, suppose ye a try another
plan. Get your representative to
introduce a bill for the free and
ailimited coinage of silver, pro
-viding that the government shall
pay $1 for every 100 cents worth
of silver presented, and that each
$1 so paid shall contain 100 cents
-worth of the same metal, and then
•s-ee who will fight you on it. If we
understand the matter correctly,
it is not the metal that is being
fought so hard, but that light
-ieight dollar that you are trying
tobave passed upon the country.
We believe that a majority of
'Mhe American people are favor
o! the free and unlimited coinage
o.d i~ker, but we likewise think
that a majority are opposed to the
isseuance of that symbol of money
. which is now known as the silver
aollaUr. It is an imposter, a masque
rader in the guise of honesty, a
talse pretend r in representing it
self as one dollar, when it is not
more than 78 cents, if that.
' PsoonGss favors silver
money; it believes in a bi-metalic
tadard, and that silver should
*~e one of them; that the govern
ment should coin this metal into
money in unlimited quantities
free of charge to the producnoer at
the treasury; that there is not
enough money in circulation, and
that the volume should be in
er~eed, but it does not believe
tha the country ever can or should
getreliuf in the manner now at
tuaptd. It iu like chming an

GENERAL ITEMS.
NEATNESS IN GIRLS.-Neatness is
a good thing for a girl. and if she
does not learn it when she is
young, she never will. It takes a
great deal mu,'re neatness to make
a girl look well than it d)e,S to
muake. a boy look passable. Not
because a boy, to start with. is bet
ter looking than a girl, but his
clothes are of a ditT*erent sort, not
so many colors in the.lI. and' peo)
ple don't expect a loy to look so
pretty as a girl. A girl that is
not neatly drcssed is called a
sloven, and no one likes to look at
her. Her face may be pretty and
her eyes bright, but if there is a
spot of dirt on her cheek, and her
tingers' ends are black with ink,
and her shoes are not laced or
buttoned up. and her apron is
lirty, and her collar is not buttoned
and her skirt is torn, she cannot
be liked Learn to be neat, and
when you have learned it, it will
almost take care of itself. --Chris

The influence of the sugar trust
in the United States is affecting
the product and sale of that staple
in Cuba. Notwithstanding the
fact that the crop is 200,000 tons
short, the prices tend downward.
The result of the great discourage
ment among planters of cane is
seen in the changingof large sugar
estates into the cultivation of tob
acco, which now promises surer re
turns for the capital and labor

TaE REDEMPTION OF A STATE.
The Louisiana State election was
held last week. Although the lot
tery managers had published their
withdrawal of application for a
new charter, yet It was feared that
they were secretly trying to man
ipulate the elections. Two Dem
ocratic tickets were in the field,
that led by Foster being recog
nized as anti-lottery, and that
headed by McEnery as lottery.
Foster was elected by ovdr 30,000
majority. This is the mortal
stroke to the lottery. One by one
the tentacles of this devil fish have
been cut off, and now the octopus
is dead. We lift our hat to Loui
siana.
The fight and the grand result
show the irresistable power of
public opinion. This caused the
passage of the law excluding lot
tery business from the mails.
This enconraged the decent peo
ple of the State in what seemed at
first a hopeless fight. This at last
resulted in that organization and
union which are essential in fight
ing organized and desperate oppo
sition. When the people are en
lightened, disciplined, and wisely
led, as in this case, nothing can re
sist them. We congratulate the
New Orleans Christian Advocate
on this grand consummation,
which it royally helped to achieve.
It may have lost several sub
scribee from those who believe
that preachers and religious pa
pers ashould use only moral sua
sion on man and institutions that
admit no moral law, but these
iable notes are unheard in the
swelling ehorus of almost aiver
sl Joy. "l'Tws a famous vie
tory."

The farming interest of the par
ish is somewhat backward, work
being retarded by too much rain.
The last Legislature passed a
labor law, but it was declared un
constitutional by the Supreme
Court. It had a very wholesome
effect in regulating farm labor.
One should be t.enacted that
would stand the test of courts. It
would be of more beneat to the
farmer than any law that can be
passed. We call the attention of
our representatives, Messrs. Pey
ton and Elam, to the matter, and
in behalf of the public, urge them
to give it their special attention.

and respectfully calls the atten

of the question we know that such
a law is very necessary and that.
the one passed worked splendidly
until annulled by the Supreme
Court.

This same journal states that
blue grass is grown quite, success

not in the Northen portion of the

flourish better in a cooler climate

more northernly States.
