Tha Worst Kind of Intimidation.
Duling the recent state campaign
Republica:n speakers inveighed bit
terly against the election law and
tried to persuade the people that,
because safeguards had been thrown
asound the exercise of the right of
suff age, they were no longer free.
The people at first were restive; and
d sposed to resent any restrictions
on the exercise of their rights, but
upon mature consideration they saw
the matter in its true light, and
understood that the so-called restric
tions, so bitterly denounced by Re,
publican leaders and orators, were
intended to protect them in the
exercise of their right of suffrage
from outside interfetenceor influence.
And now that they have voted
under the new election law, we judge,
from the expressions of satisfaction
heard on all sides, that the masses of
the voters are well pleased with the
new method of voting.
For our part, we are glad of the
change, and are firmly of the opinion
that it came none too soon. Already
the tendency of capital to dominate
and rule in politics as well as in
commerce was felt in this section of
the state In 1896 some planters
forced their white employees to vote
pnder their dictation, without regard
to the political views of the voters.
Again, during the campaign just
ended some Republican p''. : r
used every species of moral iu.....
tion to force white laborers on their
p tatian' to vote their way. We
doubt Lot that they succeeded in
many lu-t aices by these unfair
methods in inducing many timid
entu to vote the planter's ticket
against their own convictions. Un.
der the old methotlof voting, their
success would have been much more
pronouncedl, for they could have
stood at polls and handed the tickets
to their laborers and saw that they
deposited them into the ballot box,
just as was done an some instances
in the past.
As it was, they could only resort
to moral Intimidation, in the shape
of insinuations and threats of dis.
charge, or intimation of some other
impending danger. Such Intimida,
tion swatCd some timid men, but not
as many as it would have affected,
hald we not had the present sys'em
This species of intimidation by
employers is the worst that could be
practised, tor at serves to widen the
threatened breach between capital
;ad 'abor. Laborers may sullenly
submit to the dictation of employers,
anti vote against their convictions, to
arvoid any present trouble, but it
should he remembered that
'A man convinced against his will
Is of the same opinion still,"'
uand to constrain one to act against
his convictions is often to light the
flame of resentment in his heamt

exercise of th.ir mnst sacred right of
suffrage are bliud to their own in.

His employ,;r may rea-n, may
argue with him. anu tnd,,az\or to
convince him that it is the right
thiong for him to do to vote like his
empioyvcr ; that is fair and legitimate.
andi no one complain about it ; but to [
go beyond that, and try to coerce
him by threats, direct or implied, of
dischasige, or of reduction of wages,
by intimation of coluing trouble or
unplcasantncs., by reproaches, or by I
other unfair means, is unjust and
most reprehcnsible, and, in some
cases, may be cruel.
During the recent campaign ru
mors of a resort to such reprehensi.
ide tactics by some Republican plan. I
ters were rife in this parish, and the
SENTINEL believes that there was
foundation for some of these rumors.
It did not advert to the matter at i
the time for reasons which were i
suftlicient to itself ; it brings it up t
now to record its condemnation of
method, and to force it upon the
thoughtful consideration of all con- i
servative men, irrespective of party
affiliation. It is a most pernicious 2
practice which deserves reprobation.
The excit' mont of the campaign is
now over, and between now and the
presidential election good citizens
will have time to give the matter the
setious consideration it deserves and
to formulate a healthy public opinion
against the un American practice
which we have denounced.
An Interesting Decision.
We publish below the syl'abus of
a decision rendered last Monday week
in the case of Joseph Weill & Co. in

WAstINGTON, MAY 11, 9I)i.
Peculation has been added to the
extraiaagat mis-manzagement of Cu
b'an attairs for which the McKinley
:aditunistration is respousible. The
War Departient and the Post Office
Department are each trying to throw
,esponisibli y upon the other for the
-.hameful conudtti'n of atfars in Cuba,
which have bwen only pastia'ny un
covered to i ullic. view thiough the
discovery made by Col. Burton, an
army otlicer who has been on duty in
Cuba, that C. W. F. Neeley, a promi
nent rebublican politician of Indiana,
who is financial agent of the Cuban
postal system, had embezzled many
thousands of dollars. Col. Burton
has just reached Washington from
llavana, under orders to tell Secre
tary Root the full extent of his dis
cvery and to, keep his mouth shut
toeverybady eise. Rumor says that
other American officials have been
getting rich through handling Cuban
funds, but no official infomations
can be obtained in W\ashingtou. In
fact, no one need be surprised to see
Neelcy escape punishment, although
he' is hiow under arrest, and get a
thick coat of white wash, as the easi
est wazy out of the dlirty scandal foi
the administration. The profoundi
ignorarnce expressed by officials of
the War and Post Office Departments
is of itself suspicious. It implies an
intention to deceive, for ever ybody
kn:ows that both of those depart
wents must have been in pos.ession
of all the facts before Neeley was
arrested, in New York.
The House overruled the majority
of the Ways and Means Committee
and adopted a resolution calling on
the Secretary of the Treasury for in.
formation concerning the amount and
character of materials used by manu
facturers of olhama:rg-irine. The
omajurity of the Ways and Means
committee contended that the infor
mation asked for would violate law
by betraying trade secrets, but the
House thought otherwise and adpt
el the resolution.
Boss Hanna had the nerve to in.
form Senators that the atI.ninistra
tion opposition to the Nicaragua
Canal bill would be withdrawn and
the bi:l allowed to pass the Senate at
this acsion if the Senate would rati.
fy the lopsided H:ay Pauucefote
treaty. lis proposition was not
seriously considered. The friends of
the canal bid know that if it fails to
pass the people will know th:at the
responsibility for the failurme will
rest upon the shoulders of Mr. ,Mc
Kinley. As Senator Morgan put it,
'-We will pass the bill at this stssion
or we will defeat Mr. McKinley at
the polas." That is the situation in
a nutshell. The people want this
bill passed. That was made evident
enough by the overwhelming majori.
ty by which it passed the House.
Individual Senators numerous enough
to make as great a proportionate
majority in the Senate are on record
in favor of the Bill. If, in the face
of these things, Mr. McKinley is
willing to allow his obligations to Ihe
British government to cause him to
use his influence to prevent action on
the onll at this session of Congress
he can do so. but he will have to face
the music of a disappoiUted and en
raged people and the penalty of los.
ing many thousand votes. The dem
oeratic party can stand it if he can.
How contident the Democrats are
of electing a majority of the next
House, in November, may be judged
from the fact that the friends of sev
cral democratic candidatcs for spleak
er are bwginning to work for them.

Gov. Teddy Roosevelt is.in his own

flower in the republican bouquet.
He has been strutting around the

though he owned the whole shooting

Ivice to Mr. McKinley, Boss tlan. a

little something about the party
