New Orleans, Aug. 1. Tbo
lynching of tho five Italians at
Tallulah, La., and tho ordering
away of tho other Italians in Ma
disou parish may temporarily
check the Italitn immigration in
to north Louisiana and thereby
interrupt a movement which iB
having an extraordinary iufluence
on Louisiana and promises to
ha6ten a solution of the color or
raco question. The interruption,
though, is likely to be only tern
The Italians scorn to be tho on
ly raco that can labor successfully
and compete with the negro in the
semi-tropical climate of Louisi
ana. They have been arriving for
tho last twenty years at the rate of
many thousands each yoar,
and the census soon to
bo taken will chow that largely

John. Tho Italian immigration
has natually been largest in south
ern Luuisiaim in the territory
around New Orleans, where thero
is already a large Latin popula
tion. Tbonco it has apreaa.iato
the northern parishes,' where it
has met with a far from hearty
welcome; bat tho Italians seem to
have the patiooco and persever
ance of the Obiuese, enduring
persecution and overcoming pre
jndico by mere persistence.
Triumph Over Perjudlc.
No better evidence could bo
presented to this triumph over
bitter prejudice than is found
right here in Now Orleans. The
Parish Prison lynohiug of eight
years ago was a blow from which
many thought tho Italian colony
of Now Orleans would never re
cover. Perhaps G.000 or 8,000
Italians loft Now Orleans then,
seeing no hope or future for
themselves here, and sottlod in
Memphis, St. Louis, Chicago and
at other points. But tho Italians
havo lived down the Hennossy
assassination and the disoredit of
tho Mafia, and havo more than re
gained their former position. Tbo
Italian colony of New Orleans
has doubled in numbers since the
Parish Prison lynching affair, and
in wonlth and standing has ad
vanced far more. It has taken
tho first pluco among tho foreign
population of New Orloans, Thoro
are now two daily Italian papers
in New Oi loans, and Enrico
Oavalli, tho editor of ono of them,
tho Kulo-Amoricano, is tho re

Italian Governmont to invustigati

Italian Good Workmen,
The status of the Italians has
been vry much improved of late.
Thoy dropped the band organ long
ago, and they never took to barb
eriug, shoo cleaning or streot
work, aa in New York. From cob
bling they have branched out into
the mauufacturo of shoes, 'and
they control some of the largest
factories iu the South. Tbo fruit,
vegetable and fish trades they have
absolutely controlled einco they
first came, for they are without
rivals in peddling. They are ra
pidly orowdiog into the corner
grocery business, formerly mono
polized by Irishmen and Ger
mans, and into nearly all lines,
evea the learned professions. Lt
terly they have been quite conspi
cuous in politics.
It is, however, in the country
districts that the Italians are mak
ing themselves most felt. Thiqo
fourths of tbe Italian immigrants
are from Naples or Sicily. Thoy
are peasants, accustomed to farm
work, and they come over bore to
work on tbe sugar plantations.
Thoy come from- limited areas
evon in Sicily and Naples. Tup
little town of Contessa Entellina,
for instance, has more of its citi
zens in Louisiana thin at home;
and (Jefalu, from which camn all
tho men lynohed in Madison par
ish tbe other day, has several
thousand of its sons and daught
ers io Louisiana. The immigrants
aro with raro exceptions a hardy,
robust race, willing to work and
improvions to the climate. Tbe
Immigration Commissioner at
this port declares that the charact
er of the Italians arriving is stead-'
ily improving. They find work thn
day they arrive. Some oome over
in the summer, work through tho
grinning season, wnon wages are
high, and return to Italy in the
whiter with their earnings; but
this praotiao is dying out andla
majority -of the immigrants como
to stay, learn English, or some
thing like English, as soon as tbev
can, and apply for naturalization
papors. JNot a few adopt English
names like Brown. Smith or
JoneB, in order to be thorough

Boclal Poaltlon lumoloui.
The Dosition of the Itnlinn in
Lousiana is very anomalous be-
causo or the raco, or rather the
nogro question. Neither tbe
whites nor tho negroes know how
to class blm he is, as it were a
link connecting the whjte and
blaok racos. Swarthy in color,
the Sicilians are darker than the
grides and quadroons, the negro
half-breeds of so'uthern Louisiana,
but tbey are undoubtedly , whito.
