Bogalusa, Aug. 31.--After Lucius TI
McCarter, discharged negro soldier appE
had been trailed by bloodhounds, brow
caught and identified by a white wo- a fa
man as the man who attacked her Clap
Saturday night, a mob of more than to h
a thousand men lynched the negro in Ing
daylight, tied his body to an automo. Arci
bile, dragged it through the principal pow
streets and burned it'in front of the mid
home of the woman here today. stal
The attack took place Saturday A
night. The married woman beat her this
assailant off at her home, seized a gun in t
and fired several shots as he fled. His ed I
shoes, which were left at the house; like
were used to give the bloodhounds the ets
trail. He and six. other negro men vill
were taken in custody in the negro
quarters after the dogs led the au. SL
thorities to the house.
McCarty was later identified by the
woiman as her assailant. Before the I
officers could get the negro to jail a rem
mob overpowered them and shot th wa
prisoner to death. The body was then in
tied behind the automobile and the PT
procession began, with the dead man ine
draging behind in the dirt.
No arrests in connection with the Co
lynchings have been made.-The wi
Shreveport Times. W1
Wahsington, Aug. 81.--Another move de
in the government's campagin to coin
bat the high cost of living was wmide
today by wheat Director Julius H.
Barnes in warning all dealers in wheat
wheat flour and other products delin
quent in taking out federal licenses to
obtain them at once under pain of
prosecution by the department of
e ustice.
License control under the wheat di.
rector is made necessary, Director
Barnes said in a statement today, as
one of the steps in carrying out the
guarantee for the 1i19 wheat crop, and
to prQtect the government against un
due euhandement of its liabilities
thereunder. Another efect, he said,
qf the ilicensig of the handlers of
wheat and, its products would- be to t
preatnt hoarding and profiteerlang in
these comnioditie ;, ad-permit regula

Patrons of the postofilces located
along the L. & N. W. railroad have
voiced numerous complaints with re
Bgard to the poor mail service render
led on that road. The matter has been
.taken up at various times but nothing
1 yet has been done to improve the sit
r nation. The following letter will per
r haps explain the true situation:
I Washington, Aug. 23, 1919.
Mr. J. W. Button, Bear Creek, La.,
,, Dear Jack: In reply to your letter'
t of the 18th instant, I will state that
. I have frequenttly taken up questions
tj with the Railroad Administration here
.. connected with the conduct of the
. Loulsiana & Northwest Railroad, as
well as with the Post Office Depart
ment here in reference to the carrying
of the mails over this road, and I
want to assure you that there is ab
solutely nothing at all which can be
1y done here In connection with either C
d. conducting the running of the road or
a., the carrying of the mails over the road,
p as the Louisiana & Nothwest Railroad
i was never taken over by the National
Railroad Administration.
. The Director General of Railroads,
er Mr. Walker D. Hines, states that as
k the road is the hands of a receiver and
d the receiver is under the control of
It the U. S. Court, that the operation of f
al the road must be through the court by
a the receiver until the road is disposed
i. of or the receivership closed up.
lle This road not being uider the con
trol of the U. 8. Railroad Administra
tion, I do not see why that part of the
road which is located in Louisiana,
w cannot be regulated by the State Rail
road Commission, except in those in
on; stances where it is ecessary for the
'k. orders to come from the U. 8. Court.
her The Postmaster General states that
ne. when the railroad is running the trans- I
portation of the mails is governed by
eas. the ralirtad regulations, so far as the
1lis train schedules are concerned. That
w Is, that the Post Office Depatment does
yod not egulate the time at which the
hole trains will carry mail: but has to con
ave fimor to the train schedules, as they are
tful made by the railroad company, or the
power operating the railroad.
r in The statement which you say Mr.
B. Long made wtih reference to the man
agement of railroads here at Wash
days ingtot, would be correct if that par
tirep ticular railroad was under the control
to of the U. 8. Railroad Administration,
as most of the railroads are; but this,
4 o road being in the hands of a receiver
i and being a short line road, was never
Stake over by -tl:a tional Govetr.
if her I there is any porsulile wa in
y 8 which i ma ,be of . th; Ctr io
pr. ble whrtiOi ate having with the
t t Loulslau & LNorthwest Ballroad, l'wll
4 of be more than glad to render it.
It is- It will always be a real pleasure for
e dif. me to render you any possible servie.
