The Feeling in Louisiana.
Tho recent action of Mr. Comptroller
Bowler of the present National Free
Trade administration, in absolutely re
lazing to pay the sngar bounty as the
law distinctly directs, has greatly em
bittered a large number of sngar grovr
era and all those allied with them in a
business andindaetrial manner, both in
and oat of Louisiana. To sbow the per
sonal and political views as entertained
by a former democrat, who had for
thirty years resided in Louisiana, we
quote as follows:
"This destroying and devastating ad
ministration has robbed me of J 10,000,
leaving me nearly helpless. Whether or
not I shall ever get it I now sec remains
with a long patient, forgiving and oft in
sulted republican party. We sngar
growers and cotton raisers, who have al
ways strongly upheld the the democratic
party and its principles because we
thought they were right, now more
plainly than ever sec the great mistake
we have made. I am onlr one of hun
dreds shamefully treated by a political
party which we always upheld by voice,
vote and? means. The revulsion of politi
cal feeling against the free-trade party
throughout the sooth has bat ja;t be
gan, at November, Ue crop
will be harvested and no free-trade
assistance asked. When the party of
protection again gets into power the law
will be fully obeyed aud sugar growers
will bo paid that which the law allows
them. We gladlv hail that day, irres
pective of former politics."
The foregoing is only a cample of the
information which reaches us from the
south in regard to the feeling, as it ex
ists today, among the former staunch
supporter of the free-trade democratic
Rev. G. W. Worthen, the evangelist,
began a scries of Gospel Temperance
meetings at the Baptist church last
nigm. lie too lor nts text, "Am 1 my
brother's keeper?" Gen. 4:9, and ad
dressed a large audience, nearly every
at in the church being occupied, but
all his impassioned clci'ijnce failed to
raise a nppie oi applause, wiiicii ap
peared to astonish the evangelist not a
little. He spoke of the adulteration of
liquors and quoted largely from statis
tics on the subject, showing conclusively
that a great proportion of the liquors
drank in the United States were adult
erated with poisonous substances, even
more harmful than the pure and unde
nted liquors themselves, which pro
duced evil enough and to spare. He
quoted from .the writings "of eminent
phyeicians; saying that there was no use
for alcoholic stimulants in the practice
of medicine and surgery that in every
instance the patient's clianccs of recov
ery were greater without than with.
He also dwelt at length on the heredi
tary effects of liquor and advised the
people to improve the human race as
well as horses, sheep and cattle by.keep
ing the blood pure and free from alco
holic poison. He denounced the Sunday
saloon in strong terms and appeared
greatly horrified at the moral turpitude
of the citizens who allowed the saloons
to remain open and the people to go fish
ing and hunting on Sunday. The meet
ings will be continued until next Thurs
There is no dodging the fact that any
policy, no matter by what name it is
known, that closes the factories of tho
country, that destroys our great indus
tries, that robs the laborer of employ
ment and fills .the country with a vast
army of unemployed men and women
who hare no means of livelihood, that
robs the farmer of his market, that robs
tho people of confidence, that disturbs
business and fills the people with want,
misery and despair, is an nn-American
and unpatriotic policy.

Washington, Oct. 19. Tho answer of
Venezuela to the British ultimatum ap
jwars to bo clearly foreshadowed Irf an of
ficial statement from tho Venezuelan
minister of foreign relations, received in
Washington. It suites with positlveaess
tho attitudo and jwlicy of Venezuela on
tho exact subjects covered in tho ultima
tum, and in Minister Chamberlain's let-1
tor to tho gorernmont of British '.Guiana.
TIicpo official statements disclose tho
present ultimatiftn, which is a repotion
ot tho demand niado by Great Britain in
November last. As Great Britain had no
minister in Venezuela, relations being
broken oil", the German minister con
sented to act iu presenting the British
Venezuela promptly rejected tho de
mand and refused to give the assurance
Great Britain asked. The refusal was
accompanied by n statement of all Vene
zuela claimed. Tho circumstances of
tho demand and the refusal are given as
follows in the official statement of tho
Venezuelan foreign office, received here:
In September last the government
knew that the high authorities of De
mara, British Guiana were ready to
make protests and raiso 'questions be
cause some Venezuelan soldiers had
rossed tho river Cuyuni, near tho place
where the so-called English station is
aud had felled timber on the right bank
of the river. Information has been re
ceived here that this movement began
with some threats of the colonial agents
to certain Venezuelan citizens, who bad
resided at that point for a long time. It
was also known tho band of Venezuelan
soldiers had croesed the river only for
the purpose of celebrating the national
festivity of July 5 in the houses of friend
of theirs residing in that territory. The
British colonial agents, who have ex
ercited their authority since the day in
which the government of Demara
wrongfully decided to occupy that part of
the Venezuelan territory, wero allowed
to continue in their place without being
molested by the forcej of Venezuela.
Such was the state of affairs when in
the early part of last November the Ger
man legation, which was in charge of
the protection of British interests in
Venezuela, received a telegram from
Berlin in which, in the name of tho
British cabinet, contention was made of
a sup!osed violation of the colonial Iron
tier, and assurances were urgently de
manded that in the future no Venezuelan
soldiers should be allowed to cross the
stream and tho right bank of the Cuyuni
river. A declaration ol this kind by
Venezuela would have been equivalent
to implied recognition of tho alleged
rights of Great Britian to that territory,
and would hare also implied the with
drawal of the several protests made by
Venezuela cyer einco 1837 against any
infringement or abridgment of her
Under these circumstances, no hesita
tion was possible, and the answer given
by the department of foreign relations,
far from giving the assurances demand
ed by the British government, served
only to make a repetition of all that the
republic of Venezuela liad said against
the claims of England, although stating
at the same time the desire of the gov
ernment to avoid new difficulties through
a just and fair settlement of the ques
tion. The official statement from the Ven
ezuelan foreign office covers a set policy
of Venezuela in case the British attempt
to build a military road recommended
by British Minister Chamberlain, in his
letter to Governor Lees of British Gui
ana. The Venezuelan statement closes
with the significant sentence that on
the question of building this road the
course of Venezuela has been such that
the invading neighbors "cannot make
another step further on the Venezuela
side of the river" without provoking a
At the British legation it is stated
with positiveness that no advices have
been received concerning Venezuela,
and that Sir Julian Paunccfotv has taken
no action whatever on the subject.
This fs empliasizcd by the embassy offi
cials. Sir Julian called at the state depart
ment yesterday, but the Venezuelan
subject was not referred to, for the Lon
don authorities, it is declared, are not
conducting any branch of the negotia
tions through the embassy here.
The Venezuelan legation had its first
news of the ultimatum from the press
cables. The fact that Minister Andradc
has not been advised from Venezuela
indicates that that the ultimatum is
still en route and has not reached Cara
cas. President Crespo is at present at a
summer resort and the vice-president
is acting president. The Venezuelan
congress will not convene until next
February. It happens also that a cabi
net complication occurred 10 days ago.
Four of the cabinet, including Dr.
Pulido, minister of foreign affairs, re
signed, and President Crespo has not
yet named their successors.
The Ultimatum on the Way.
Loniiov, Oct. 19. St. James' Gazetto
this a'1 rnoon follows up tho disclosures
of yf-'-rday regarding tho policy of tho
Right Hon. Joseph Chamberlain, secre
tary of state for tho colonies, towards
Venezuela, and the apparent disposition
of the British government to uphold 11$
claims by force of arms, by making the
following important statemout:
"Wo aro in a position to stato that the
Marquis ot Salisbury has sent an ultima
tum to Proaident Crespo, which not only
sots out the demands ol tho British gov
ornmont for reparation on account of the
arrest of tho deputation and inspectors of
police at Uraan, but it also states tho
terms on which Great Britain will finally
determino tho boundary dispute with
that republic. Tho ultimatum is now en
route to President Crespo, if not already
delivered to him.
"This final action was decided upon by
tho Marquis of Salisbury nnd Mr. Cham;
berlain before tho former's recent holi
day in Franco. Both Salisbury ani
Chamberlain aro in perfect agreement as
to tho necessity of ending tho frontier
disputo, even if Venezuela has to bo
brought to terms by tho means which
aro most efiectivo in reaching an under
standing with South American repub

The Westminister Gazette, comment
ing npon a dispatch to the Times from
New York, declaring that a joint refusal
of tho Euroian powers to accept the
Monroe doctrine is believed to be in the
Marquis of Salisbury's mind. Bays:
"There is no snch thing. The Monroe
doctrine is a matter entirelv between tho
old country and tho United States, arid
if the time ever comes for Great Britain
to take sides on the subject, we shaH
stand with tho Americans, not against
The press association lato this evening
announced the government had not re
ceived a reply to the ultimatum sent to
Venezuela, and that "the foreign uffico
had not even received an intimation that
it had been delivered to President Crespo.
Probably this accounts for the fact that
the foreign office will only confirm tlio
St. James' Gazetto's story of the sending
of ultimatum to tho extent of saying it is
true the Marquis of Salisbury is taking
steps to inform Venezuela that reparation
is required for the Uraan outrages.

Sunday School Rally.
The Sunday school of Pino Grove on
Deer creek will hold a special service
next Sunday, which will last all day. An
interesting programme is being prepared
and a good ti mo is assured. Everyliody
is invited to como and bring yourbaskets
well filled. Tho meeting will be under
the management ol the county associa
tion. The treasury department has presented
a statement for last month showing re
ceipts somewhat over $3,000,000 in ex
cess of expenditures. This statement is
a cheat. Tho sugar producers of tho
United States have not yet been paid the
$5,000,000 due to them, the authority to
pay which was given by the last congress.
It is a just debt owing by the govern
ment and 30 long as f I of it remains un
paid the administration cannot claim
that its revenue exceeds the needs ol the
government. The September statement
is false. While Uncle Sam owes money
to sugar producers, or to any one else, a
surplus of revenue cannot be claimed.
False balance sheets represent nothing
but democratic chicanery.
