The Thihodaux paper gives its Co
patrons a remarkable astronomical oil
wonder and paradox. Last week's wl
Comet had a little comet, not larger br
than a lady's pocket handkerchief on
the inside of it. It was visible to as
the naked eyw, being bright and at- 1,
tractive.--Baton Rouge Ac'v ate. TI
We received one of those astrono of
mical and paradoxical little comets th
also Bro. Jones, and we are proud to et
know that Thibodaux can boast of hl
such a wonder. One however should m
pot be surprised at anything in this ci

Li Hung Chang, China's greatestc
bsploniat and Statesman, who has
ligared so promanently in the politics °1
Pt the world for the last half century, a
departed silently and peacefully from 9
this world last week. This yen a
erable old viceroy Inaugurated many w
ii reforms in Chinese afairs tI
which have tended greatly towards 0
the betterment and advancement of
his people. Although China has t
been enveklped in Cimerian darkness t
for many years, still she has assumed a
a progressive attitude of late only
through the instrumentality of this
wise and sagacious old man who now U
sleeps beneath the soil of his country o
which he loved so devotedly. n
The acts of a nation are the as 1
preselons of the true character of its r
people. If the people are really con.
trolled by christian princ.ples the.
patlons of which they are constituents
part. will rufraip frows murder, rob.
bery, arson, and oppression. A abort c
while ago we beheld nearly all the <
christian nations of the world engaged <
In a whole sale robbery of a heathen I
nation, killing her people and des.
troying and devastating her resources.
(Christian nations do not hesitats to
wresg distrnction upon each other
whee it becomes necessary to kIll'
ta order to rob. This is actually
Iielng done in Africa by one of eiq
highly civilized nations of the earth.
What bodtes ill to all the earth, and
from which no good can come,'is the
fact that those who assume to teach
jilrittapnity endorse these crimes
against humanity. What the worddI
needs at the present time Is a clviii.
nation that elviliass and a christianity
that christianiese, for anything short
pf this Is vausting bypocrasy.

History Repeating Itself.
The recent il. feat of Tammanny in i
New York, is another example of the ope
evils resnltiog from a party organiia* tun
tion becoming too strong, Tamuzany's and
strength was unlimited end its away
undisputed. It reVOgnit.'d that fact
to such an extent that it became reek so
less and overbearing. Not only it der
would dictate terms to New Yoe k but coo
would dare announce Its dictum to
the nation at large on questions of fix
political differences arikiog in the at i
party. Tammany's pants we re just the
simply too large for it; it could not b
cortain itself; it had to go rlown. It
wept down. A revolution of th ughts
-a revolution of batlots b;oight it wh
down. It is history repeating itself, ma
There is no significance in this eig
election however except it be that the dec
,eople of this country wi I not tul.1
erate bossism, nor coriup.tion, nor
the suspicion of corruption. The All
charges laid at Tammany's door were sa
such a nature that, if true, it were of
well for good government that it fci
should be relegated to the rear. The I
nominees supported by the old sachem
chief Croker and his followers were wh
pure and good men, but they were Be
considered creatures of thit b:id and mi
domineering ring. Its defeat was '.bl
accomplished by the Democrats them- le
selves refusing to vote for the teen
supported by Tammany.
The lesson taught in New York sec
will be taught in the Union three as
years hence. The people of this A
s country have in their Wind's eye that
I old reprobate and trickster, Hanna, of
s who Is himself the incarnation of
r bribery, corruption apd juggelery
, and they will down him. The Re. ne
" publican party and Banna are one. Cc
The one cannot exist without the an
other. Tammany's alleged doings, if pa
s they be true, pale into insignificance ab
o compared to what Mark Hanna and do
f his cohorts have done. They have
d made of politics ; business and cal
uclate the number of votes by the ne
number of dollars. With them claim co
t to ofos is gusged only upon service W
s given them. The official is made to in,
understand by them that he is sworn tw
not to serve the country but the E,
party. Mr. Roosevelt saw and re A
cognized the evil and announced
when he came into power, to improve
the service by appointing to office te
l only men of integrity. He started lu
ýf well, bpt in sa evil hour this prom tw
i smag young Statesman(?) felL Hanna o
looms up serenely again. The strings we
ate being pulled by him. pi
l The Republican party is doomed. to
is Hanna and his associates, may put
w forward the best men the country
ry contains, as did Tammany, but the w
nation will down them in the interest yt
of reform, honest and economical p
z government. History is constantly B
ta repeating itself. w
