TITLE EQUALLY BAD.
And now comes little George Gor

of Packard was as clear as that, of tho
Hayes electors of Louisiana." No
one will dispute with little Gnorgy
about that matter. Horoino in his
life he is ri"ht. Packard has as good
a title as Hayes, The trouble is, that
Hayes had noue at all. It must be
horribly galling to littlo Georgy and

The wholo pack ot them, one and all,
Irom Mearns and J. Alauuison Wells

and lied nirain.
Tho Returning Boards lied and the
Congressmen and Senators and Su

purpose of not only lying Hayes iuto

Mr. Craggs says, "is putting a very
tine point on it." But they aro just-

That tho country safuly passed
through tho terrible danger to which
ft was exposed by their villainy, was
not owing to their efforts. That was
effected by the good sense of tho mass
of tho people, tho magnanimous for
bear, nee of the Democratic- jHaftlj,
and tho heroic self-detilal of the cili
ceiisofthat section, who lor nearly
ten. years have been the victims of
every wrong and oppression which
the malicious liate and maliguant in
genuity ot the Radical leaders could
inspire and invent. S. K Examiner.
The application of this term is local
ized in the South. At the close of tho
rebellion, when the Administration
was doubtful about whom it could
trust, most of the Federal appoiut
nu nta for the South were from among
Northern loyalists. Then tliero wis a
class of Northern men, hiving status
tor patriotism during the war, who
went South, and, ingratiating them
selves with the colored volers,ollained
elective position. This latter class had
little to lose and ail to gain. "Make hay
while the sun shines'was their motto,
and in many instances they used their
offices lor purposes of tho most shame
less robbery. No wonder that they
became objects ot suspicion and dis-
ike with those whom tbey helped to
impoverish, fn South .Carolina and
bouisiaua wiey were particularly uni
on, and it is because their power is
now broken that theso Mates are
given up to such wild joy. A few
figures lrohi Louisiana will show the
extent of their misrule.
At the clcVe of the war the debt of
Che State was $4,000,000. Under tho
provisional government to 18G7 it ran

to the statements of eminent bankers
of both parties, about 10,000,000 was

Tho Court has declined enormously
in public estimation. Tho shameful
bargain by which Bradlev and Strong
were appointed to sustain the legal
tenders by upsetting a former decision
of the Court and thus saving to the
Pennsylvania and other raihoad cor
porations tho dillcronco between gold
and paper on their outstanding con
tracts, struck a blow nt the nitegrii
of tho tribunal. Followed by the
agrant violation of the Constitution
