Who are the white leaguers now,
"long John" or the same ones? We
are mixed.
What kind of a couch will it be, on
which our independent lions will lie
down by the side of the radical lambst
If they were our nearest relatives,
we could not vote for the independent
candidates under the present circum
A bluff game will sometimes suc
ceed in playing a poker hand, but it
don't bug-a- boo the Democratic party
worth a cent.
Chief Ouray of the Ute tribe is still
on the plains. So the Democrats need
not "tremble in their boots" as "long
John" says they do. There won't be
any scalping done on election day.
Long John, the bully boy, "all the
way from hum," Bangor, Maine, told
'em how proud he felt once more, to
plant his foot, thirty-three inches long,
'on the old republican platform, haw !
And our alarm gun will continue
to send its shells through our cane
brakes, bursting as they go, to let our
good people know that the hour has
come once more "when'every man is
expected to do his duty,"
How our independents will manage
to tune up their political fiddles, so
that they will play in accord with
Chapman's Radical fife and the'bugle
of the Democratic party, is a mystery
that the best of musicians can't solve.
Democrats of East Baton Rouge,
will you vote as Chapman does on the
2d of December? Do you think that
the son of the pinelands, all the way
from Bangor, Maine, will do to run
political hotels in the Louisiana low
Not the heart of Mid Lothian, but
the steel-clad one, that takes the
place of 'Grand father's clock' in car
pet bagger Chapman's elongated body,
swells with jackalistii emotions, at
the attempt to raise the radical corpse
in this parish. "
With the same scriptural charity,
that makes some men kiss the rod
that smites them, the radicals propose
to take up the ultra bulldozers of the
Democratic party. 'Zactly, but we
don't understand how such things can
come to pass.
People of East Baton Rouge can
you afford to vote the Independent
Republican Fusion ticket and thusre
open the turmoil that broke up our
parish a few years ago. For the sake
of the common welfare, do not aban
don your colors at this time.
The fight is a square"up and up"be
tween thile Independent-Republican
F usionists against the Democratic
party. People of East Baton Rouge
don't desert your colors in the face of
thile enemy.
Lay on Macduflf;
And dtamned be he
Who first cries hold, enough!
And his name was Captain Kidd,
And he sai, ya-y-ay-ay-yled.
No it wasn't Captain Kidd thile pirate
but it was Yankee Doodle-Do-Chap
man, all the way from Bangor, who
came down to Baton Rouge at tile
head of his black warriors to show us
"heow we do things to lnhumn."
When I went away with my carpet
bag in hand, friend B--l, while I
was in trouble about that $20,000 in
the Revenue office, they all said, thank
God, Chapman is gone. But I am
hIlere again, friend B-l, strutting
the streets of Baton Rouge with per
feet impunity.
The nasal twang comes in again.
The latest news received from the
front, by. "long John" are to the effect
that Van Tromp, long-legged Tucker,
"Sweet Clover," Bulldoo Lane, Alli
son, Underhill, and the balance of
"'the boys" are packing up their car
pet-bags, preparatory to their return
to the old camping ground at Baton
Rouge. When they meet the open
ing chorus will be:
'We hlve drunk from the namoeanteen.'
The battle for Liberty against Des
potism has begun in the Northern t
country, and the Democratic lines con- c
tending for the government created x
by the menof 1776, have bleu repuls- (
ed as far as the boundaries of the
glorious Empire State. Though the t
Democracy was divided between t
Kelly and Robinson, Clarkson Potter t
and the rest of the ti-ket are elected c
by a handsome majority, and New t
York has breasted the radical wave.
That noble State proclaims that her t
thirty-five electoral votes will be given t
to Hancock, Bayard, or any other t
patriotic Democratic candidite for ]
President in 1880.
With Indiana for the Democracy,
acting in unison with the solid South, t
the Centralizers or Imperialisti must
go the wall, and the men whp have
"struck oil" in Pennsylvania, or have
grown rich through monopolies will i
not become Shoddy Dukes, and! Prin
ces of the Empire of Columbia I The
Republic and the Union of our fathers
will be maintained, and the humtble
citizen will be "a man for a' that."
We are no longer the aristocratic
South. Our people have become the
sons of toil. Though poor the men I
who, for seven days bore the brunt of
battle before Richmond, and on five t
hundred other fields, will never recog- t
nize that they have sunk so low as to
need what the shoddies are pleased to 1
call a "strong government."
And the South will stand solidly for1
the Coiptitution and the Union, an
nothing else. The Demagogues mayi
wave the 'bloody shirt' as long at,
they please, but we will never flincM
and desert New York, Indiana, and
such other States as may stand bet
side them.
The hour is a trying one, and whedt
the skulkers are going to the reaet
then is the time when ,net stand by
their colors. 4
The New York Times and the Tri
bune, are urging the radical leaderi
to come to Louisiana, there to breaks
the Southern Phalanx. Kellogg the,
infamous usurper is calling for their
Shall we cower before them and:
allow our heroic State to be the first:
in Dixie's land to abandon her gallant
We cannot believe for an instant
that our people will be so recreant to
their past history as to permit our
escutcheon to be thus tarnished.
Men of East Baton Rouge, yours is
the Capital parish, and a heavy thrust
will be aimed at you. Will you parry
the blow and strike down your an
tagonists I
We are proud to see that a political
battle is to be fought here, because
we know that we have the men who
will meet thie foe successfully.
The enemy has nIot darued to con
front you with vizor raised. He has
sought to obtain allies in your midst.
Tihe mask is now off and your inde
pendents have joined hands with tihe
remnants of thie carpet bag marauders.
Will you not rout this unholy and
unjustifiable alliance I
It is not our intention to accuse
every man who opposes thIe Demo
cratic party with being a rascal -qnd
a horse thief; much less will we,as
sail thie personal character of men who
are candidates oni the Indlependent
Republican Fusion ticket. There are
some on thIe list whom we have heart
ily supported while they were zealous
members of thie Democratic party.
Towards.those, we entertain no other
feeling than one of sorrow, that we
have parted politically with each
other. It is our duty as one who has
never struck a blow against Louisilana,
to cast our ballot against those wlho
in seeking the disruption of the D)em
ocratic party, are opening the way to
I thie re-installation of thIe dreadful rule
that scourged our State durimn too
many years. As a journalist, in per
forming a public duty, we will follow
our politicad opponents step by step,
holding a blazing torch )ver them, in
order that their glaring inconsistency
may be fully exposed to view. Fear
lessly will we hew close to the line,
letting the chips fidl where they may,
unmindful of those whose anger is
aroused by our course.
When the day of election comes,
then do we hope that our good people
will throw aside personal tiesof friend
ship even, to range themselves under
the banner that alone can give our
Parish and State lasting peace.and a
Sprosperous future.
With all of Bob Ingersoll's fauimlts,
,ihe says some good and just thiltgs in
Smost eloquent style. For instance:
"Women are more faithful than men
-ten times as faithful aIs luien. I
never saw a man pursue his wife into
Sthe very ditch and dustofdegrladation
Sand takeherin hlisarms. Inever saw a
man stand at the shore wheoe she
Ihad been morrlly wrecked, waiting
Sfor the waves to bring back evbn her
corpse to his arms; but I have seen
woman, with her white arms, lift man
from the mire of degradation and hold
lim to her bosom as thoughl he were
ean angel."'
The threats of the Independent-Re
publican Fusionists will only consoli
date the ranks of the gallant IRemoc
racy of this parish. Shoulder to shoul
der we'll stand together and meet
them. We've seen darker days than
thete before. If it iras Sheridan who
said, "I'm not afraid," can't we say as

In tiother column we publish, a
tesoolu ion passed a the Beattie Ba" g
cal meeting, over which presided the
notoriousCarpet-l ager, "long Joh " o1
Chapman, yrhich states that the e- a
publicans of this parish wIli give Ci
their support.to the Independent can- ti
didates, who in return have promised a
to ensure a free election and a fair
count at the polls, of all votes cast for C
their State ticket. e,
We are the last to deny any citizen si
the privilege of seeking official posi- i,
tion independent of party nomina
tions, but when men, claiming to be a
Democrats, pledge themselves to el
sustain in the manner describ- t,
ed above the Radical State ticket, tl
they ought not to expect their Demo
cratic friends to give them the slight- b
eat support. a
The agreement itself constitutes, h
first, an accusation that the Demo
cratic party intends to conduct the p
election in a fraudulent manner; and tl
worse than this, that these indepen- p
dents have it in their power, and c,
mean to use it, to prevent such a r
consummation. ti
Why this accusation, accompanied 14
by this implied threat? ii
There are to be no United States r
troops at the polls, as in former days,
to bolster up the Radical henchmen.
Do the independents mean to sup
ply their place t
We hope that they don't intend to
pursue the policy of intimidating their
former l)Democratic allies, whose right
to stand by their party nominees is
one that they certainly will exercise,
as they have in the past, under any f
and all circumstances.
There is no occasion for such "blood
and thunder" menaces, as the election
will be held fairly and squarely, and
in strict accord with the law. The
Democratic party has no need and
will not resort to illegitimate means i
to carry their ticket victoriously.
Least of all will they use force or in
timidation ; but we caand do assure
all whom it may concern, that the
Democrats will not allow themselves
to be bulldozed by anybody, and will
cast their ballots like men who, know- r
ing their rights as freemen, dare
maintain them ! i
November, 1876, found our parish,
aye, the State itself, in turmoil and
anarchy. The people overburdened
by taxation whose proceeds were dis
alppeaing in the pockets of an un
mscrupulous and insatiable set of ofii
cials, who in return dared not amid

It was at this dark period that
large numbers of your race yielded to
the repeated appeals of your white
fellow-citizens, and your votes were
cast for Nicholls and Wiltz and the
Democratic ticket.
What has been the result i
Since then race animosities have
disappeared. Every man, white or
Sblack, feels to day that he is a free
e man, and so long as he pursues his
avocations as a law-abiding citizen,
he goes forth .unmnolested from one
end of the State to the other. You
no longer need your revolvers or
shot-guns. Peace and good feeling
hold supreme sway over us all. Con
fidence has been restored everywhelre;
agriculture and other industries are
reviving; capital is beginning to seek
investment in our midst. Soon'our

a Messrs. Pinchback, Allan, Landry,

iAd PANAA, Oct. 25.-Further infor
ilmation of the cruise of the Iluascar
and Union, Southi, and of their meet
ing withl two divisions of the Chilian
to navy, is derived from thile official re
i- port of Capt. Aurelio Garcialy Gar
. cia, commandluant of the Union. The
two vessels called at Iquique, thenl I
stood South, arriving off Sarco, a
to Chilian port, on the tiurth instailt,
at where they captured the Chilian
n. schooner Coquimbo. On thie morn
- ing of the fifth they entered thie har
bor of Tanquey, when we lenrned
ig that an attentpt would be made to
ir land a strong Chilian force at Iqlui
id (que or som0e other lpoint oil the coast 1
of Peru. Admiral Granu then ldeterm
ined to return to Aien.
Proceeding niorth the two Peruvian I
at steamers, on the eighth, sighted the
to first division of the Chilian fleet, 1
te which was looking for them. The
Huascar'and Union at once put about
re and mnade off is .fast as possible to
ie the southwest. They had drawn
well away from land, the Chilian
fleet following them, Wthen Grau re
solved to steer north and endeavor to
Ve run between the Chilian fleet and the
or shore. In this manwuvre he suc
e- ceeded and swept by the enemn's
is first divison without firing a gun.
The superior speed of the Purnvian
In, ships was manifest as they rapidly
ne steamed away from their enemies
on the Blanco, Encalada and three wood
or en steamers-and they thought to es
cape, when suddenly they sighted the
U second Chilian division, composed
n- of the Alniraute Cochrane and sever
e; al smaller vessels, coming down upon
re them.
ek In a few minutes Granu saw he
could not escape from this ironclad,
ur whose speed was equal to his own.
s He accordingly steered for shoal
er water where, on account of his light
n- ess of draft, hie might lead his huge
enemies on the rocks or be able to
out-mnansuvre them. The Union
ds here deserted her consort and escaped
he to the westward, closely followed by
lr- several smaller yessels of the enemy.
These could not come up with her,
ay and she proceeded north to Arica
without having fired a shlot. The
r- fight was begun by the Huasear dis
ir charging her two three-hundred poun
ders at close range at the Almirante
Cochrane, which Grau followed up by
ur an attempt to ram his antagonist.
o I This was unsuccessful, as the Chilian
lie iron-clads are double screws and can
present any front they choose to an
ae, attack by ramming.
, As the Huascar swept by at such
u- close range she received a broadside
is from the Cochrane, and before she
er had proceeded far the other battery
was poured into her. At the same
ite time the other Chilian ironclad came
an down upon her and Grau, undismay
nd ed by the odds against him, boldly
ti placed himself between the two ships,
which were thusprevented from firing
d so rapidly, on account of the danger
an of hitting each other. This, no doubt,
e, prolonged the fight, which lasted two
de hours before the Pernvian flag was
hauled down.
ed For about an hour the officers of
ot the Union were able to observe the
od deadly combat and speak favorably
Sof the manner in which all three iron
clads were handled. It is not known
whether the Huascar was taken by
- boarding, or whether after the death

The following is a copy of a letter
addressed to John T. Sears, Jeffer
son City, Missouri:
ii MESILLA, New Mexico October 16,
i 1879.
Our party has just returned. The
Indians have gone to the Florida
I1 Mountains, to Old Mexico. We were
e on the road four days and nights.
, Found Jones' body and sent it home.
I was one of the first to ride upon it,
and was the most terrible sights you
e can imagine. Also found the others
who were murdered with him. They
9 had their scalps taken off in some
't cases; in others, eyes, noses, fingers,
toe, etc., awere cut off and stck in
thie deadl nen's inmouths and eye sock
j eta. Before we got to that lparty,
though, we had buried eleven other
bodlies who were murdered on thel
- Ine day by the samne party. They i
r were Mexicans, coaning here from
- Silver City. Thre Indians took themn
a by sur'prise, and murdered the whole I
-train. They also killed all the oxen,
- some twenty-five in number. About
e 100 yards on this side of that train
a they had Ipluudered another one, de
a stroying wagons and cargoes. The
t, only thing they took from the train
n was coffee, sugar and whisky. They
i- cut the flour sacks and scattered flour
r- on the plains, throwing sand in it so
d that it could not be used. I rode
o down to one cart to see if there were
i- any bodies. When I got within a
st hundred yards I saw a Mexican sitting
b- bolt upright on the seat ; thought at
first hie was alive, but as he did not
n stir I wtent closer, and there he was
le dead and stiff, with a bullet hole
t, through his forehead and both" eyes
le cut out and lying by his side. Some
it of the cattle only had their legs cut
to off to die froni thirst and starvation.
n We killed them wvith our six-shooters.
n A few dogs were at thie train with all
- their toes ueat off, starving to death,
to We piled the mens' bodies together
ie on the plains, and heaped rocks on
c- them for a grave. Then we went to
's Lloyd's ranch, passing by plundered
I. trains, dead horses and cattle all the
Lu way. But at Lloyd's was the worse
ly place; seven bodies were found and
- buried; every living thing was killed;
I- horses, chiekens, dogs, oxen, cows,
8- burrows and men; the ranch was bur
to ned. I counted sixty-one dead cattle
ad before I got tired; 160 head were ly
r- ing dead on the plains all round us,
n not including hogs, horses, etc. Then
we saw 150 head of fine, Merino rams
ic dead in a corral, sothink youecouldn't
II, walk without stepping on them. I
n. tell you of many things we saw, the
al work of the Indians, if I were not so
t- completely "played out." Have
3e traveled 150 miles on horseeback,
to night and day, over all kinds of coun
m try.
td I thought at one time we had
iy strick the Indians and would have
Y. to fight. In fact everyone thought
r, so, and our captain made us dis
ca mount and get everything ready for
e the fight. We were passing along a
a- mountain where the Apaches had
n- killed some men the day before.
te And then we saw their tents, early
)y in the morning and started for the
it. Floritas. On top of the mountain we
n found their dried beef and hides,
In They will probably return in a week.
m When we were at Mason's Ranch
we could see their signal fires on the
sh mountains. A light would flash up
e for a moment, and then go out. This
e wouldbe answered by a light from
ry another place, and so on. We eould
1e have whipped one hundred of their
e braves if they had jumped us. They
F- would have got some of us, but
ly wouldn't have won the fight.
e, I hope I will never have to go on
ig another scout. I have had enough,
ur and seen all I care to see. Unles you
t, see with your own eyes what blood
ro thirsty devils they are, yeou will
is never belive whatyou hear.
Have not had anything to eat but
of raw bacon for four days. You would
1e never know how good it was until
ly you get out on the plaips where not
i- a thing is in sight but coyotes and a
rn rifle ball can't catch them.
