SIX LICENSES ISSUED HERE.
Anyone Buying, Selling or Using Ex
plosives Must Have Permit.
Clerk of Court J. S. Barman, ex
plosives licensor for Ascension parish,
has issued six licenses to date, four
being taken out by Donaldsonville
druggists whose stocks contain chemi
cals and other ingredients entering
into the manufacture of explosive
compounds, and two by corporations
having occasion to use explosives in
blasting and dredging operations.
The licensees are: Charles Oschwald,
P. L. Blanchard, Holbrook & Griffon
and Dr. J. H. Lowery, owners respect
ively of the Palace, Central, X-Ray
-nd Cut-Rate drug stores, in Donald
,onville; the Miles.Planting and Man
ufacturing Company, of Burnside,
and Picard & Geismar, Ltd., of Geis
mar. Other applications for licenses
are pending before Mr. Barman.
It is considered most important that
the active co-operation of citizens
with the licensor be had, and anyone
who learn of explosives being in the
hands of unwarranted or unlicensed
,arties should report the same at
once in person or by mail to Mr. Bar
The new United States explosive
laws ark very drastic, but the necessi
ty is apparent in connection with the
importance of keeping explosives and
the ingredients of' which they are
made out of the hands of disloyal
oersons. Embarrassment and incon
v-enience may be caused in certain
cases, but the importance of the end
in view overrides all personal interest.
Under the new law, no one is per
rnitted to manufacture, deal in or
handle explosives or the ingredierits
thereof without governmental license,
and heavy penalties are provided for
non-observance of the act. All com
mon carriers must in connection with
the transportation of explosives,
cause to be indorsed on the bill of
lading and way bill information as to
license number of shipper. The su
pervision of this important matter
will be kept well in hand.

Leaving the courthouse at 2 o'clock,
with the members of the exemption
board in the lead, the paraders march
ed to the Texas & Pacific depot,
where patriotic addresses were made
by Mrs. Victoria Guedry Smith, chair
man of the colored Red Cross branch;
Jos. A. Reddix, a leading negro citi
zen of Darrow, and Judge Edmund
Maurin, who bade the selectmen
good-bye and Godspeed on behalf of
the white people of the community.
The party boarded a special train ar
riving here at 2:40 o'clock. Each of
them was presented with a box con
taining a substantial luncheon.
Six registrants who were to have
departed with this increment failed
to report. One of them, Walter

the courthouse Monday and was de
spatched to Camp Pike the following

Judge Maurin, J. S. Brazier, and Vic
toria Guedry Smith. The depart

Three, other Ascension negroes who

direct from Savannah, Ga., where
they have been employed. They
were: Eugene Lefort and Gus. No

Eascaped Leper Located in Ascension.
LeonBarbalotte, alias Frank Leon
ardi, aged 49, a negro suspected of
being a leper, was brought to Don
aldsonville from McElroy Friday
morning by Deputy Sheriff William
Acy, Jr., and upon examination by
Dr. Boote LeBlanc, of Iberville par
ish, Dr. P. T. Thibodaux, health of
ficer of Ascension, and other local
physicians, was found to be suffering
from a well-developed case of tuber
cular leprosy. District cpurt being in
session at the time, the Wegro was at
once interdicted and was then con
veyed in an automobile to the leper's
home, where it was discovered that,
he had formerly been an inmate of
the institution, escaping about nine
months ago. He was originally com
mitted to the asylum from New Or
leans, and after making his escape
returned to his home in that city,
subsequently proceeding to McElroy,
where he secured employment from
the Ascension Red Cypress Co. His
condition giving rise to the suspicion
that he was afflicted with leprosy, an
official of the lumber company com
municated with Dr. Oscar Dowvling,
nresident of the State Board of
Health, who referred the matter to
Dr. Thibodaux, Ascension health of
ficer. The latter in turn submitted
the case to Dr. LeBlanc, who has had
opportunity to observe and treat nu
merous cases of leprosy because of
his proximity to the state ome, and
Dr. LeBlanc came to DorIldsonville
yesterday and made the positive diag
nosis as stated. The negro was taken
to the leper's home by Deputy Sheriff
Lucien Acosta, Sr.
