SATURDAY, MAY 8, 1880.
W. 8. HANCOCK,
The eager attempt of certain news
papers of doubtful antecedents, back
ed by the whole Republican press of
the State, to besmirch the Democratic
Conservative State administration
and accusing the dominant party of all
sorts of unfairness, is too thin, and the
views and objects of these writers are
too plainly visible and apparent. It is
the old game renewed and played over
again by the usual coterie of disap
pointed and time serving, pot-house
politicians. Most of these false at
tempts are aimed at Gov. Wiltz, and
no true paper in the State can attempt
with any hope of success to meet and
answer all the falsehoods which it
pleases certain renegade newspapers
to put afloat against the State, which
is their home by either birth or choice,
and which ought therefore to be ex
empt from their villification.
At the present time, in Louisiana,
there is not amongst civilized imankind
a community where protection tolife,
person and property is at less real
cost than in our State. We are now
relieved from the misery of over-gov
ernment, which was our curse for ten
long years, and crime is punishe(
with reasonable certainty, and our
affairs are administered with fairness
and unquestioned honesty. We ask
for the present State government the
usual frank and characteristic fairness
and even-handed justice always ac
corded by good citizens and true Lou
isianians, and, our word for it, Gov.
Wiltz will prove true to his party, his
people and his State. *Be patient, he
fair, and fear not, for he will be equal
to his word, his pledges and his duty.
The assertions contained in the
above paragraphs from the Alexandria
Democrat will no doubt fill with as
tonishmnent our conferes of the N. 0.
States, East Feliciana Patriot-Demo
crat, West Feliciana Sentinel, Sabine
Index, Greensburg Gazette, Coushatta
Citizen, Colfax Chronicle, Richland
Beacon and others, when they find
themselves classed as "certain news
papers of doubtful antecedents backed
by the whole Republican press of tlhe
The standing of these journals is so
well established as faithful upholders
of Democratic principles, that we will
not attempt to justify the manly course
they are pursuing.
We take pride though, in asserting
that the CAPITOLIAN stands shoulder
to shoulder with them.
In doing so we challenge the Alex
andria Democrat or any other journal
to exhibit a record of loyalty to the
grand old Democratic party, that will
surpass our consistent adherence and
devotion to its undying principles.
Every step that we have ever taken
in politics has beemn in the direction of
their maintenance and advancement.
We have our first blow to strike
at the colors under which we have
been found at every campaign.
Therefore do we repel the calumny
so far as the CAPITOLIAN is concerned;
and we imagine that our confreres
will do thie same.
A few men who have by intrigue
and craftiness seized the reins of tIhe
Democratic party of this State, with
a view of advancing their individual
interests, even by dlefeating the ex
pressed will of the pleople as contained
in thie Constitution lately adopted by
sixty thousand majority, do not in our
opinion constitute the Democratic
party of the State of Louisiana.
And we are not afraid that by say
ing so, we will do injury to the parIty,
that under no circumsutances, we can
ever be made to desert.
We desire that the Democratic Iparty
shall rule the destinies of our State.
To accomplish that end, it must be
governed with a spirit ofjustice, arind
the practice of fair dealing towarits
all its supporters. The l)emocratic
Legislature must be gumded by the
fundamental law of the State, iand tihe
will of the people whose welfimre it is
called to represent.
ThIe party Conventions must not be
used to throw in the background the
purest and the nIoblest men of loumisi
rana, to subserve the seltish schemes
of a few adroit politicians.
We believe that we represent fully
the views of the unflinching I)emoc
racy of East Baton Rouge, when we
say that its representatives stanlding
firmly in the line, holding aloof the
Democratic standard, whether in the
Legislative HIalls, or in thIe councils of
the party, will contend for honestlaws
and fair dealing, unmindful of those
who would stitle public opinion and
the advocacy of right, in olrder that
loud-mouthed professions of fealty to
party, might afford a shelter for deeds,
that in the end, would cause trie and
good citizens to be ashamed to say
that they are Democrats.
When the time comes forsustaining
thie chosen leaders of the 1)emocracy,
our Alexandria confrere, will find us
in the breach, as in the past, along
side our brethren of East Baton Rouge,
who have ever faced the nmusic when
ever the cohorts of Radicalism, were
aligned for the purpose of overthrow
ing those principles upon which rests
the American Republic.
We have no favors to ask of the
party, by bending the knee of servili
ty at the footstool of power, as by do
ing so, we would be recreant to our
ilduty as a Democrat and a public jour
We will everbe as ready to applaud
the good condnct of party leaders and
the officials elected to govern, as
we are, and will be, to condemn their
course, whenever it be prejudicial to 4
the welfare of the people and the good i
name of Democracy.
Upon these utterances will we be'
guided, and with an abiding confi- 4
dence in the honesty of the masses,
go before our readers and be judged I
N. O. Democrat.
Though he does not admit it in so
many words, we can see from the last
issue of the CAPITOLIAN that Brother
Jastremski has taken our advice, and
that hle is feeling better in conse
n quence. There is a more whlolesome
tone pervading the paper. Its com
plexion is clearer, its eyes brighter,
its mnotions nIo longer languid. T'here I
t, is a frisky ode to "Spring Love" on
the first page, some good miscellane- -
e us reading on the second page, of I
which the following original editorial i
paragraph is a fair specimen :
It looked'likes butterfly. It had wings.
He chased it; he caught it, and sure
t einough it was but a fly.
t ut oil t the third page the evidence
is overwhelming. First we have a
Ii thrilling local sketch entitled::
MEET ME BY MOONLIGHT ALONE;
OR, TIlE ORB'S SOFT RAYS STREAKED
II Next comes an eloquent essay, full
of unutterable meaning, on the sub- 1
1 ject of Baton Rouge widowers as con
v voys for young ladies going ]ihome from
- church; and finally a heartfelt apos
n trophe to early cabbages !
1 Surely we are justified, in view of
r all these circumstances, in assuming
a that Brother Jastremski has tried the
k regimen prescribed for him by the
e Democrat some ten days ago, and that
s lie is now enjoying its benefits. We
are sure he feels better, and that in
- his heart, he is grateful to the Demo
crat. In the melodious words of

after all. When we expected. to be

though a torrent of Visuvius' lava had
been poured upon our devoted head,

DEATH OF DR OHOPPIN.
On last Monday evening, at, ten
o'clock, at ]is residence in New Or
leans, the distinguished physician and
surgeon whose name heads this notice,
died of pneumonia, after an illness
of only forty-eight hours.
He was born in Baton Rouge, in
1828, his father, Paul Choppin, a
native of France, having married a
daughter of the American Consul at
Nantes, where she was born.
After graduating at the Medical
College of Louisiana, he pursued his
studies in France and Italy, when he
returned to New Orleans, where he
filled the position of Demonstrator of
Anatomy in the Medical College,
His career as a writer, professor,
physician and surgeon are too well
known to need recital at our hands.
Suffice it to say, that his high repu
tation will remain indellibly stamped
in the annals of his profession.
During the late war Dr. Choppin
went to the front, lending his skilful
services to the soldiers of the country
of his birth.
As a citizen, he was always among
the foremost in aiding every move
ment which tended to the general
In Baton Rouge, where lie was
raised, he leaves a large circle of
friends and relatives, who will long
remember his kindness of heart and
noble traits of character.
As an evidence of the esteem in
which he was held, we reproduce the
tollowing editorial from the New Or
leans States :
"A glorious tribute was paid to the eminent
services anld high moral character of one of Lou.
isiana's most gifted and distinguished sons, in
the outpouring of every c'ass of the community
to pay the last sad rites to all that remained
of Dr. Choppin. The members of his own
profession were there, deeply impressed with
the great loss to medical science by the death
of their highly esteemed brother. Jurists and
lawyers testified their respect and regard for
the high attainments, unselfish duvotidn to the
public welfare, and the sterling integrity' which
choracterized the whole life of the deceased.
The tearful eyes of the poor, the widows
and theorphans eloquently spoka the loss of a
friend sympathetic, kind and generous; while
the countenances of the immense concourse of
admirers, friends and relatives. indicated that
the community had sustained a blow which was
felt from "center to circumference.
The funeral procession moved from the real.
deuce to the cemetery and on its way presented
a most imposing spectacle, impressing all with
the deep solemnity of the mournful occasion.
The remnains were deposited in the family tomb
in St. Louis cemetery, the coffin fairly encased
in flowery offerings from loving hands as sokens
of regard and friendship for one who had de.
parted this life leaving a spotless name and an
honorable record of along career of usefulness
which will long live in the memory of those
who knew Dr. Choppin and appreciated the
sterling qualities of head and heart that made
him an exceptional man-one to be honored and
cherished as an ornament to society and a bril.
liant light in the scientiflc world.
"The malice which prompts the
slanderous whispers of the corruption
of legislators, whose character and
nanmes are as pure as any in the State,
and whose lives and services are an
clmphatic refutation of suspicion even,
is as despicable as cowardly. It is a
fact beyond contradiction that the
..man or men wh..o give life to these lies
dare not ackuowledge their author

"Tlhe attacking of the legislature
by inuenudo and insinuation throws a
shadow over every member of that

So far as inuendo and insinuatiom
goes, in reffecting on every member
of the legislature, because of the short
comings of tile majority, we entirely
disagree with our confrere. EastBaton

ciated compliments :.
Our neighbor, the Capitolian, aunoun- t
ces that it has perfected arrangements
for publishing soon a tri-weekly edition.
Notwithstanding a disposition to be
captious at times, the C'apitolian is a
fearless Democratic journal, one that '
has rendered large service to the party,
and especially to the people of Baton i
Rouge; whatever differences of opiuion I
may exist between the DEMOCRAT and
our neighbor of the capital city we can I

TIlE TRI-WEEKLY CAPITOLIAN.
We note with pleasure the announce- I
ment that the CAPITOLIAN, edited with
so much tact and ability by General i
Jastremsk i, will shortly be issued tri
weekly. This is certainly indicative of
the success of our esteemed contempo
rary, and of a proper appreciation of its
merits by the public. Always true in
its Democracy, fighting bravely for its
ascendancy and for the honor of its
good name, the CAPITOLIAN has quickly
acquired a position in the ranks of the
Louisiana press as influential as it was
Whilst unswerving loyalty to the Dem
ocratic party is the boast of its editor,
he says "it is not of that kind which
hangs to the coat tails of certain indi
viduals, it is based upon its time-honored
principles, from which we have never
dleparted in a single instance. We are
for the Democratic party first and last.

in them, and it is by following such a
line of conduct that the CAPITroLAN has
achieved success and established for it

prosperity of its tri-weekly edition.

The Sugar Bowl wants to know whe- 1
ther the promoters of the militia organ
izations expect a light, or whether "it
is only a masmeuvre to spend the money
of the State."
"Very likely the latter," says the lit
tle patriot of the Advocate, by way of a
bite at the coat-tail of a "certain editor
from a certain quarter," who has some
thing to do with the aforesaid militia.
In order to quiet the apprehensions of
the Nestor of the Baton Rouge Press, we
would inform him that the Legislature,
whose proceedings havp so completely
clharmed himn, has not appropriated a cent
for the ,maintena,,lce of the said militia !

Col. Noble, Major Wanthen and Major
Green, the tyiree engineers and survey

their expressions the Denmocrat is led to
believe that the road will be completed
within the next eighteen months. The
Capital City cawr therefore look for an
early rail connection with the outer
world. Now is the time for the people
of East Feliciana andl Amnite County,
M3iss., to nmove towards joining their
proposed line with the other at Baton
Rouge, whose citizens, having raised
the contribution to rebuild the Capitol,
will soon be ready to co-operate with
their neighbors and friends of Clinton
and Liberty. We await the response of
the press of those thriving towns to de
vise some practical method of starting
the ball so that there will be no let up
until success is achieved. The CAPITO
TOLIAN is ready to enter in the crusade
ofawckening the people to their interests.
