Itlaffords us much pleasure to
announce that there is a fair
prospect of our having Gen. John
B. Gordon here early in April.
Gen. Gordon is one of the noblest
of the noble heroes who defended
the Lost Cause, and one of the
few survivors of the Generals of
the Confederate army. Aside
.from the prominent part played
in the great drama of 1861-65 by
Gen. Gordon, his eloquence as an
orator and his unblemished repu
tation as a siatesman and patriot
since the close of the war, have
4.deared him to the South and
to the entire country to the ex
tent that he is enthusiastically
greeted by crowded houses where

This beautiful affair. was one of
the most successful events of the
season. The greatest commen
dation is due that clever social
leader, Mr. Robert Firnberg, for
the planning and carrying out of
all details, so finely, and for the
unalloyed pleasure so freely ten
dered by him, and enjoyed by so
ciety's votaries. He has shown
himself fully equal to take the
helm and surmount all difficuties.
The figures danced were re
markably pretty, the comic ele
ment introduced pleasing the
fancies of many of the elegant
assemblage which witnessed it
and causing gay laughter to re
sound throughout the hall, and
the bright eyes of beauty to beam
with pleasure. -
Dainty refreshments were served
during tle evening.
The couples participating were:
Mr. Robert Firnberg with Miss
Jesie Williams; Mr. Jonas Roos,
Mrs. J. P. Saizan : Mr. Jno. W.

When partisan politics reach
the state of developeme t where

measure proposed by its oppo

for a readjustment, ; That such
time has.'arrived is made plain by
the great number and variety of
questions before legislative bodie

To Who It May Concern.
Subscriptions amounting to
several hundred dollars are due
this office. The amounts are
small and the debtors are scat
tered throughout the parish. If
we have to. call on each individ
ual to make collections we will be
forced to travel a much larger
number of miles than we care to.
The business men of this and
neighboring towns have told us
that they made good collections
this winter. What good reason
is there for us not being able to
say as much ? Is it because we
have been more lenient lthan
-they ? Or is 'it because our bills
are so small in individual cases
that they are overlooked by the
subscribers in their annual settle
ments ? The business condition's
of the country are such that we
are in a measure forced to trust
to the' honesty of our subscri
bers ; and in many instance our
confidence in human nature has
been sorely tried. Those of odr
subscribers living at a distance
from Opelousas and have not a
convenient way of sending us
money, can buy postoffice orders
and deduct the cost of the same
from the sum due us. This is a
fair proposition, and we have an
abiding hope that it will be taken
advantage of by those owing us.
One of the most objectionable
things in this entire Gage busi
ness has been the finding of a
letter from the Vice-President
of the National City bank ad
dressed to the Secretary, claiming
favors on account of the politi
cal strength of the directorate
and on account of ."what was
done in the campaign." The di
rectors include many men prom
inent in the Standard Oil Com
pany and other trusts. There is
of course, no proof that Mr.
Gage was biased by this letter,
but nevertheless the thing leaves
a bad taste in the mouth.
A new canal company, known
as the Acadia Canal Company
has been organized. Mr. C. C.
Duson is at the head of the com
pany backed by California capi
tal. The main flume will be on
Bayou DesCannes and the water
brought through a channel to
Point-aux-Loups hotel where the
pumping plant and machinery
will be located. About a mile
north of Iota a large relift station
will be built.

From our h. giular Correspondeut.
Washington, Feb. 12, 1900.
The attitude of the Democrats in
Congress, as a party, towards the
Niagara Canal treaty, which the
administration has negotiated with
England and sent to the Senate,
and the Porto Rico tarift bil,'which
has been reported to the House,
and will be takent up this week and
jammed through as a party meas
ure, is thoroughly American,'. and
consequently right. The treaty
gives more than it provides for our
receiving. It allows us to build a
canal. with our money, provided
we agree to let every nation in the
world, even those we may happen
to have war with, have exactly the
same privileges we take for our
selves in using it. That isn't the
old Democratic idea of American
control of the canal, and it is really
surprising that there is a single
Democratic Senator who is willing
to vote for the ratification of the
treaty. Without Democratic votes it
would be bound to fail. One of the
strongest arguments in favor of
the construction of the canal, has
been the advantage it would give
us in a war with a foreign power.
Under the present treaty we should
have no advantage, as our enemies
could make just the same use of the
Imperialism is the real question
involved in the Porto-Rican tarift
bill. It makes one of the issues
upon which this year's presidential
campaign will be waged. The "Re
publicans in"their.-report on this
bill, wh]ich imposes a 25e duty on
Porto Rican products, have come
out flat-footed in favor of having
Congress assume thel authority to
deal with the territory recently ac
quired by the U. S. as colonies, and
with their people as subjects. The
Democrats contended that the cons
titution is the supreme law of this
Republic, and that it recognizes
neither colonies nor subjects; that
every foot of ground belonging to
the U. S., is a part of the U. S. and
every resident of the territory be
longing to the U. S., a citizen.
The imperialists have the votes
to win in Congress, but it re
mains to be seen whether they can
win before the people.
The Democratic substitute for
the Republican gold standard bill
is short and plain. It was intro
duced by Senator Jones, of Arkan
sas, and it provides for the open
ing of the mints of the U. S. to the
coinage of silver, as provided by
the act of Jan. 18th, 1837, upon
the same terms and subject to the
limitations and provisions of the
law regulating the coinage and le
gal tender quality of gold; and
that when the silver coin shall be
received into the Treasury, certi
-ficates shall be issued them as now
prescribed by law. Unfortunately
the Republicans have the votes to
pass the gold standard bill-Chan
dler is the only Republican who will
vote against it-but the subs
titute will give the Democrats
an opportunity to record their
votes in favor of "the dollar of our
daddies." The vote will be taken
on Thursday of this week.
Adjutant Gen. Corbin, who
gained some notoriety during the

himself thle rank of Major. General,
is again playing the role of lobby

Notwithstanding the indignant
denials on the floor of* the House
by Geu Grosvenor, and other at,
ministration men, of -the charge
made by Roberts, that Utah polyg
amists had been appointed to Fed
eraloffices by Mr. McKinley, the
House Committee on Postoffices,
which has been investigating, now
has to report to the House that
Postmaster Graham, of Proveo, had
an indictment for polygamy hang
ing over him when he was appoint
ed.' In order to soften this proof
of the charge of Roberts, the Com
mittee accompanies it with a state
ment from the prosecuting attor
ney of Salt Lake City, saying that
for various reasons it is not likely
that Graham will be brought to
trial under that indictment. It is
probable that the wishes of the Mc
Kinley administration are among
those "reasons" for not trying to
convict the polygamist postmaster.

TIIE KRAUSE-TAYLOR COMPANY,
The Krause-Taylor Company,
e will play a three-nights' engage
e ment in Opeleusas, commencing
h Thursday night, Feb. 22, with a
special matinee on Saturday after
noon. The opening play, "A
, Home Affair," is one of the most
I successful cemedies of the season.
- The pathetic incident of mytholo
1 gy, Niobe, turned to stone from
y grief, is made a foil for the
r ludicrons incidents in the play.
Niobe, supposed to have been ex
tracted from the ruins of Thebes
e after remaining there for three
u thousand years, is sold to an en
thusiastic antiquarian as a curio.
HI1 leaves his trophy with an in
1 surance eompany, the manager of
which removes it to his house for
safe keeping. Workmen who
are putting in electric wires when
they finish their day's work, to
get the loose end out of the way,
t twist them about Niobe's feet:
When the lights are turned on
f iobe returns to life and then the
fun begins. The company carry
their own special scenery for this
play, using none of the Opera
House scenery at all.
The prices for this engagement
will be 25c., 50c. and 75c. Re
served seats are on sale at Ja
cobs' News Stand.
