William Hepworth Dixon, White Conquest: Volume 2, Chapter 1: Louisiana. (search)
McEnery and General Penn, soldiers of local name, on one side; and William P. Kellogg, a lawyer from Illinois, and Caesar C. Antoine, a Negro porter, on the other side. Each party claimed the victory, and till the Chambers met no one could say h, not in open court, but in the Judge's lodgings, and exhibited a bill, setting forth a statement that, whereas he, Caesar C. Antoine, had been duly elected Lieutenant-governor of Louisiana, and whereas he had reason to expect embarrassment in enterdice of his claim to the said office of Lieutenant-governor. The persons named in the schedule as likely to prejudice Antoine's claims were one hundred and thirty-five in number. The first was Governor Warmoth. Next came the Secretary of State.l to his tools; yet President Grant has been compelled to own that the order made by Judge Durell on the application of Antoine was not only illegal but a grave mistake. Yet this illegal order was signed, and the grave mistake carried into full

, having the Republican writs in his hand, the Federal soldiers at his back, arrived at the Mechanics' Institute, in which edifice the Assembly was to meet. Caesar C. Antoine, holding Durell's order, stood at the door, pointing out who should enter and who should not enter. None but his friends were passed. Once in the legislati and, if Norton could be set aside, to go as senator to Washington. These terms being settled, Billings led Pinch into the Senate Chamber, and, by help of Caesar C. Antoine, seated him as Lieutenant-governor in the chair of state. In ten minutes Pinch organized a house. Then he produced a paper, written out by Billings, chargiSancho, as a pleasant creation of satiric art. But Minster and Barrataria must look to their bays. If Bocking has no rival, and Sancho no superior, Pinchback and Antoine in high places have an air of burlesque not easily surpassed. Warmoth refused to recognise Pinchback, and Pinchback was puzzled how to act even though he had P

army, ready, on two hours notice, to fall in on twelve hours notice, to take the field. This league gave confidence to those White citizens who wished to end the reign of anarchy, by driving Kellogg as a stranger from New Orleans, by sending Antoine, the Negro porter, back to his stand in the Custom House, and by installing General McEnery and General Penn in office, as the Governor and Lieutenant-governor of their choice. Election-day was coming on, when a new set of local legislators m uncertain. In a question of disputed powers, where neither party had the sanction of Congress, Longstreet might see his duty in standing aside, while the voters who had chosen McEnery and Penn settled with the voters who had chosen Kellogg and Antoine. Might . . . but who could tell? At eleven o'clock on Monday morning. September 14, 1874, a mass meeting of citizens was held in Canal Street. Standing by the great statue of Henry Clay, Marr, as chairman of the meeting, put this question to

ering the cabinet, we find Governor McEnery, Lieutenant-governor Penn, and several Senators, who decline to sit with Kellogg's group, under the presidency of Caesar C. Antoine. A more courteous and decorous body of gentlemen than these Conservative Senators could not be seen in common-room at Oxford or committee-room in Westminstebear the loss. The scalawags have nothing to risk except their skins, stand they are careful not to risk their skins. What can it matter to Kellogg and Packard, Antoine and Pinchback, whether property declines or not? We stake our all on peace and order; but our brethren in the northern cities have yet to understand this fact. ates to the United States, there is not the slightest disposition to oppose the general government, but that the opposition to the State government by Kellogg and Antoine cannot be put down.... The present State government cannot maintain itself in power a single hour without the protection of Federal troops. . . . The State govern

Senator for Louisiana? This pale and dissipated Negro is the Hon. Caesar C. Antoine, Lieutenant-governor of the State, sitting in the chair brtue of his office. No Conservative senators are present. Caesar C. Antoine is an African of pure blood, though he is not so dark as manis only strength appears to lie in a feminine sort of shrewdness. Antoine was a porter in the Custom House. Before he took to politics he co so high a place. It was a golden chance. Apart from accidents, Antoine is not a man who could have risen. This Negro Caesar in New Orl dome, among the chief sages of the commonwealth! On going with Antoine into Kellogg's cabinet we encounter Pinch. The Negro is in high fjust affirmed once more his election to the State Senatorship, and Antoine has brought his credentials for the Governor to sign and seal.

have a national gensdarmerie instead of a civil police! The Legislature of Louisiana is as much a part of our Government as the Legislature of New York. Men who have never before this moment mixed in politics, leave their books and join these enemies of President Grant. Here is an act done in a time of peace, says Curtis, so dangerous to all civil freedom, so bold and reckless a violation of law, that men who have condoned everything else are compelled to speak out. Kellogg and Packard, Antoine. and Pinchback, are forgotten in the fury now being vented on the great criminal at the White House. Impeachment is demanded in a thousand voices. Resignation is suggested, and in fact announced. The country seems aflame, the whole White family rallying to the defence of outraged law. Yesterday the President seemed resolved to back his lieutenant. He was asked by the Senate to state what is passing in New Orleans, and how he means to deal with matters; for the reports of Foster, Phe

, to represent the coloured people in the national Capitol! Why not unite and carry your own candidates? Fired by such visions Sam begins to dream of running for the State legislature. If not so lucky as Pinchback he may be as fortunate as Antoine. If he cannot reach Antoine, he may hope to rival Demas. If Pete can sit in Jackson or New Orleans, why should not Sam aspire to sit in Atlanta? The lowest senator, he hears, gets three dollars a day for doing nothing but loll in an easy chaiAntoine, he may hope to rival Demas. If Pete can sit in Jackson or New Orleans, why should not Sam aspire to sit in Atlanta? The lowest senator, he hears, gets three dollars a day for doing nothing but loll in an easy chair, chew tobacco, answer when his name is called, and now and then get up to have a drink. A Negro toiling on a plantation has to pick and carry cotton for three dollars a week. Why not attempt in Georgia what the coloured people do so easily in Mississippi and Louisiana? You would be much amused by some of our dark politicians, says to me a well known personage. This morning, as my coloured servant was cleaning my boots, he looked up into my eyes, and, with a broad grin across his face,
