EATON ROUGE, LA., FEB'Y 8, 1879.
We present to-day to the public the
first rumber of the LOUISIANA CAPI
TOLIAN, in response to the verdict of
the people of the State, re-establish
ing the Capital at Baton Rouge. We
have adopted the title after mature
deliberation, as one eminently suited
to the present situation of affairs, and
one that, appertains to residents or
things that are of the political me
We deem it opportune to offer our
heartfelt congratulations to the voters
of our commonwealth for their great
great achievement. They have for the
third time selected our beautiful city
as the seat of the State government.
They have shown clearly by this de
cision, and by voting down with great
odds the other twenty proposed
amendments, that they view the Cap
ital question as paramount to every
measure tending towards a return to
the economical and judicious adinin
istration of public affairs of the ante
To their efforts to abolish all unne
cessary offices, and the reduction of
exorbitant salaries to an equitable
basis, as well as to an adjustment of
the public indebtedness, in order that
internal improvements may be inaug
urated and developed throughout the
State, the people will find. the CArI
TOLIAN always in the front rank to
sustain such demands.
By the will of the manjority Baton
Rouge is once more the Capital of
Louisiana. This decision is the
strongest indication that our truest
citizens are re-establishing our fialen
glory, and that a better day is at
We believe that the :approaching
Convention will be composed of hon
est and patriotic representatives, lIe
lieving this. we know that they will
ratify the popular verdict and inti~ert
in the clause fixing the seat of go-
ernment, the words BIATON ROt(;E!
The democratic delegates particu
larly, who will beyond doubt con
stitute the majority in that body;
cannot, unless they be recreant to
their duty, do otherwise than main
tain the expressed will of the people.
No citizen can forget the agony felt
during those four years of bitter con
test for the installation of the Mc
Enery government, rightfully elected
at the ballot box-a fact that war
ranted the sending of the Committee
of Seventy to WVashington and nerved
the arms of the patriots who fought
and fell on the ever inemnoraldl, four
teenth of September! Considering as
we do, that the principle that obedi
ence to the will of the inajori- is one
that should always he maintained, we
have in advance of the ratification of
Baton Rouge's victory, taken up the
title of CAPITOLIAs with the luinwaver
ing intention of striking forever, with
such force as may be ours, at the
opponents, whoever and wherever
they may be, of that principle upon
which rests the grand structure erdct
ed by American freemenl!!
As to our political faith, we have
to say that we are of that grind ammy
upon whose banners "DEMOCRACY"
is indellibly stamped. That army

To abandon the Democratic ranks
is to wander without a conllpass on
the boundless Ocean of tile ever
changing theories of Demnagogism. In

have paid dearly for the strides that
have been made towards centraliza

THE DELEGArES TO THE CON
It will soon become neccessary for
the people to select three delegates to
represent the parish ill the Constitu
tiouil Convention. Thllese delegates
will Ie expected to advocate the pop
ular denmands for a thorough reformu
of our governlment. These consist:
First-in the establishment of all
unnecessary offices, and a reduction
of salaries of public officials to a prop
Secondly-in an ad.justment of the
public indebtedness in a manner that
will be equitable alike to t1"_ State
and its creditors.
Thirdly--in a material red.ction of
Besides these dlenluads the delegates
of East Baton Rouge, will be entrust
ed with the all important duty of ob
taining the ratification of the nmajority
vote given at the late election in favor
of Baton touge for State Capital.
It is absolitely nI(ce.sary that the
voter4, white andul colored, eallocrats,
RIepubllic:tas and Independents, cast
aside for this occasion, all differences
either political or personal, in order
that three capable, energetic and pub
lie spirited men be chosen to pelrform
these dutties. It must be apparent to
all that tlt( lmaj(iority ill that conveln
tion will be coporsed of l)emocrats.
Therefore, in order to exercise the in
fluence that our delegation must hare,
the delegates must be in good stanLd
ing with that majority.
Tilhe convention has not been called
for the political advancement of the
Democrat i I party, as is erroneously he
lieved by some of the colored voters.
The fact that the Democratic lparty
has now an almost entire control
of the State govertnment, aught to
dispel such fears if any there are.
The convention will he held for the
purpose only of ameliorating the con
dition of affairs in our State, an end
that will be of benefit to all our citi
zens without distinction. We do not
hesitate t.l4ssert, that the delegates
of this lparsll, will maintain and de

that we fiel at this selection of so
talented and worthy amnong Lou
isiana's sons, as her representative
to the National Senate. There were
in the field several competitors, well
known, and occupyling high positions
in the esteem of the people. None of
them, however, would have done
their State more credit than we are
sure he will do. Mr. Jonas is a young
lman. a rising one in the political
arena. T\e know of him that he car
tried his musket, as a private, in the
service of his State, and right gal
lantly, too. We know besides that
he is upright, fearless, eloquent and
.talentedl. He has ever been true to
hids party and to his friends. Whilst
every citizen has his preferences, still
all those who know him, will feel
assured that the honor of Louisiana
is in good and safe hands.

Federal bayonets !* There are "can

formed in the suburbs of the city. A
fleet of war ships is aligned in the Mlis
sissippi ; the guns are trained and the
cannoineers are at their posts. The
vessels are there to cover and aid the
movements of the land foirces. Sud
denly, at the dawn of day, the still
ness of the scene is broken-volley
after volley of musketry is heard, soon
followed by heavy discharges of ord
nance. It is the attack-the attempt
l to recalpture the State Capital. The
heroic Breckenridge is there with his
stalwart and unfaltering Kentt'ckians,
closely followed by the patriotic Allen,
who leads his gallant Louisianians in
the onslaught. The rest is known.
The attack has faliled, and the devoted
banud sullenly retires from the field.
The earth is tinged with the life blotd

We have learned from reliable sour- 1
ces that this road is being rapidly and "'
earnestly pushed to its completion.1
There can be no doubt now, of the en
tire success of this great enterprise.,
When completed this line will be one
the best paying routes in the South,
and one of vital importance to the
Crescent city and to the rich and fer
tile country it will traverse. To
Baton Rouge, it means regular and
rapid communication with. the coast
parishes and New Orleais, a point
that will be wvithin five hours travel
of our city. We will also have access,
by this line to the Red River Valley
and the entire road system of Eastern
Texas. A branch of five miles in
length or a ferry boat will easily con
nect us with the main trunck passing

Our city becomes naturally the ob
jective point for our Clinton neighbors
to reach, if they too,-as we have no
doubt they do-desire to obtain rapid
transit for their merchandise and pas
sengers to the principal highways of
commerce. It is evident therefore,
that the trade of that productive
section of country lying between the
Mississippi and the Jackson road,
must now seek its river terminus
here, in order to effect its connection
with the Pacific route. Steamers ply
ing from Bayou Sara and points
North of us will also necessarily have
a terminus at this place.
It requires but ordinary perception
to see that the location that nature
has provided for our city, is about to
turn the scale of prosperity to our
doors. With the restoration of the
Capital, and the road and steamer
connections above mentioned, it can
not be doubted tuhat Baton Rouge is
soon to become a central and imupor
tant commercial point.
It behooves our citizens however
to be alive and doing, in order that
such steps as are necessary to aid in
achlieving these culad may be taken.

not necessary for us to follow- h m.U

made in the interest of silence;
sufficient it is that one day, toward
dusk, he reached the house of the
gentleman for whom he hadthe let er,
and dismounting, knocked at the door
and presented his letter to the Judge
(even in those days every one was a
Judge in Arkansas,) who would not
have needed it to accord him an
open-handed welcome; for travelers
were a god-send, and news was as
mhuch sought after then as now. After
a short visit he proposed:to go on to
the next town, about four miles, where
he intended to put up for the night..
The Judge would not listen to his f
leaving, and was so cordial in his
desire for him to stay that he would
have been rude not to have done so.
The Judge, after directing one of the
servants to attend to his horse, in
vited him into the dining-room,;where
he was introduced to the wife and
daughter of Gis host, and also to a
substantial Western supper, to which
lie did ample justice.
After supper they adjouinme to the
parlor, and he entertained hids new
made friends with the latest news
from the outside world. The Judge
brewed some stiff whisky punch,
which Graham, socially inclined im
bibed quite freely. The old couple
retired, and left their daughter to en
tertain him; and whether it was the
punch, or what, at all events he made
hot love to her, and finally asked her
to be his wife and go to Texas with
ht im, to which she consented. She

again. Morning came, and upon his

young lady alone, for which he bless

to make an apology, when she said :

a kiss which nearly took his breath
