Under the above caption the
Franklin Vindicator says:
It is a self-evident fact that the 17th Jud i
cial District is too large for one man to
handle. This district, composing the parish
es of Lafayette, Vermilion and St. Mary has
a volume of criminal and civil business to i
dispose of each term which keeps the judge o
actively engaged upon the bench forty-seven
weeks actual time every year. Terms of
court to handle the criminal affairs is sup- a
posed to occupy three weeks, but generally a
speaking, the docket is not more than half b
cleared away when that time is consumed,
consequently those who are charged with P
crime must either be bonded out or kept con- f
fined until the approaching term comes st
The constitution guarantees a safe and
spi edy trial to all those charged with a vio
lation of law, but under the existing condi- to
tions this cannot be had. Trials are as a
speedy now as they can be made in this dis- ti
trict. The judge cannot abandon a regular tl
term of court in one parish to afford relief
and empty a jail in another thus making it g
necessary for prisoners to remain incarcer
ated for an indefinite period.
There are at present four terms in each ii
parish a year, with three parishes, making
the judge put in twelve months actual time
on the bench, and only about two-thirds of tl
the cases on the docket can be unloaded, in I
an outside estimate.
Considering the above and, also, t
comparing with the other districts, p
it is clearly evident that the duties
[ imposed on the Judge of this dis
trict are onerous and unequal and
relief should be extended, it L
would be an act of strict justice. c
In our mind, the judiciary in so t
far as it relates to the Circuit and 1
District courts should be recon
structed. And it is to be hoped that
the committee appointed to revise or ,
suggest amendments to the constitu
tion will give this matter their most
Perhaps, a measure of relief could
be found in the adoption of a sys
tem akin to this : Let the circuit
and district courts be abolished,and i
in their stead let a judge clothed
j with the powers, now possessed by
the circuit and district judges, be
appointed from each parish to sit in
an adjoining parish, so that he can
not be accused of being biased, and
let the salarybe graded from $Sooo
to $6oo per year, based upon the
volume of business that would likely c
be transacted. This could be ap-s
I proximated by taking the amount of I
e business done in the preceding two
a years. The dockets in each parish
- could be easily kept cleared, and
l the rights to a speedy trial guaran
f teed by the constitution would be
secured at once, and not be an
empty form as is now the case in
- many instances.
It is probable that objection may
I be taken against the amount of sal
ary. But this need not be a stumb
ling block, and could be augmented i
25 per cent. and at that amount it I
should not be difficult to find men
worthy to wear the judicial ermine.
The main point in our suggestion
is to secure the quick despatch of
court business, and, we think, our
plan would work with effectiveness.
A special to the Times-Democrat
from New Iberia, says:
Sheriffs Cade and Broussard, of Iberia and
Lafayette, respectively, were here to-day in
conference relative to the organization of an
association of the sheriffs of Louisiana. They
have issued a call to atl sheriffs of Louisiana
to assemble in convention at Lafayette, La.,
on Saturday, October 14, r893, at the Court
House, at 4 o'clock, p. m., to effect an or- i
ganization of sheriffs. Any sheriff holding 1
1 office int Louisiana is elighble to membership.
Among the proposed objects are to mu
tually aid and assist each other in enforcing 1
the penal laws of the State ; to arrest and 1
bring to trial criminals and fugitives from
justice; to suppress lawlessness and crime ;
to bring to bear all lawful and reasonable
means to exercise their duty, and to accom
plish that end by prompt and energetic ac
tion ; to meet and discuss subjects of inter
Y est to officers, and the adoption of such
Lmethods that will improve the present system.
The sheriffs of Texas have a similar organ
e ization, andl after a practical test, it has pro
ven its value. The idea is to keep sheriffs
fully posted upon the movements of suspi
e cious people, and by some adopted system
be in communication with each other con
stantly. The organization will be non-poli
e tical, and if successful in its prin-ary organi
zation, it is proposed to get allpolice officers
throughout the State to join, and by that
means work together in enforcing the laws
Sand capturing criminals. The organizers
i have been encouraged in this move, and a
full attendance is assured.
a POISONED CANVED FOOD.
A recent bulletin issned by the
[t Department of Agriculture, contains
:r some important statements and adds I
.e some interesting conclusions corn
ie cerning the adulteration of food, es
ts pecially of canned goods. The in
vestigations which have been under
taken show that the adulteration is
not confiried to the United States
but is practiced freely in Europe.
1, There are intentional adulterations,
but there are others which are large
ly incidental. The Boston Traveler
commenting thereon says that "'these:
r results are largely due to the meth- I
, ods.employed and especiaily to the
of materials used in canning, poison
ing to some extent the vegetables,
es fruits and meats which it is intended
s This investigation has shown that
ct where "bright plate" tin is used the
d contents are free from deleterious
s. substances, but that a mixture of
a lead and tin is often substituted.
Ie This is done on the score of cheap
ce ness, as lead is worth many times
less than tin.
P Report of the Grand Jury. .
To the Hon. A. C. Allen, Judge of the I7th P
Judical District Court.
The Grand Jury duly empanneled and
isworn in and for the parish of Lafayette, a
beg leave to submit this their final report.
s We have examined the parish jail and e
o find it in good condition with the exception I
e of the sewerage in the principal steel cell, t
where if larger pipes were used and a grate
abou; two feet below the opening, the now
y unsanitary and nnhealthy condition caused c
by said sewerage would he remedied. The
prisoners therein are well treated and cared
-or but are complaining of not having t
s sufficient bedding. t
We would recommend to the Police Jury
! to take steps towards furnishing a good wa- 1
ter supply to the court-house and to the jail s
s and would suggest that a wind mill and r
tank be erected in the court-house yard on d
the order of the one owned by Mr. Vi
t gneaux for his own use.
We also recommend to the Police Jury t
to take some action towards erecting an
iron fence around the court house and jail.
e We further recommend to the Police Jury
f the necessity of having a full set of the a
n Louisiana Annual Reports, a set of the acts C
of the Legislature up to the present year and
to keep said books in the court room of this
s In view of the prevalence of disorders at
the public balls which are frequently given
in the parish we specially recommend and
insist that the Police Jury require all par- q
ties who wish to give public balls to take F
out a license from the sheriff of the parish, t
o the amount of the li-ense to be fixed by the
d Police Jury and the money thus received $
from the ball-givers to be used for paying
a constable or deputy sheriff, whom it shall
be the duty of the sheriff to appoint and f
r send to the collation or ball, for the purpose I
I- of keeping the peace.
it We furthermore call the attention of the
Police Jury to the necessity of having the
d parish titles to public roads recorded ac
cording to law. We have carefully exam
eined into the books of the office of sheriff
it and tax-collector which we found to be well I
d kept and all moneys collected for by pro
d ductions of receipts from the parish treas
urer and State auditor as required by law.
The clerk and recorder's offices are well
C kept and public records well preserved. We
n would however suggest that a coat of paint
L- be applied on the porches outside and inside
d the office would greatly improve the general
appearance and at the same time pre
serve from decay. We will also call the
e attention of the Police Jury to the had con
y dition of the windows of said office which I
- suggestions have already been made by
f previous grand juries. I
We have also examined the books and
vouchers of the treasurer and after actual
h count of the cash in the treasury found the 1
d same to correspond with the books and
The clear, able and impressive charge
of the court on our general and special du
n ties has materially assisted us in the perfor
n mance of our duties. The wise reference
of your honor to the dangerous tendency of
the times to mob rule or lynch law which
is gradually spreading in this and other
States has induced us to here state that no
disposition to public violence for the pun
d ishment of crime exist in our community, t
it but on the contrary the well marked and
n prevailing sentiment of our people is to ap
ply to and rely upon the courts for redress 1
of all public wrongs, but in furtherance of
a healthy public sentiment which is nes
-f ! sary to assist in the execution of the law.
r We take occasion to condemn any disposi
tion to mob rule or violence wherever it
may spring up, as destructive of the primary
ends of government, which is for the security
t and protection of the person and property
of man. The true basis of prosperity and
d civilization of any country.
n We find the public schools of the parish
n are steadily progressing as will be shown
a by these facts. Three years ago there were
only one public school in the town of Lafa
yette with a few others, under leased build
r- ings. To-day there are 16 school houses
' belonging to the parish and two other
schools which are leased, making 17 white
t- and I colored school in operation, also a
' high school building which is now com
d pleted, and which cost $3ooo and paid for,
m and which it is intended to put under the
administration of the School Hoard. The
e thanks of the people of the parish are clue
the Police Jury and the Town Council of
S.afayette for liberal contributions to aid
r- in the building of said high school.
Is In conclusion we must say that the people
Shave a zealous, alile and fearless district
Sattorney and to whom is due in a large
measure the prompt and energetic execu
ts ion of the law of this parish.

es That the records show that few if any of

fact that we have commenced mill
ing for the new season. Planters c
who propose shipping rough rice
to be milled on toll-will do well to
write us as to the amount they are
likely to ship and the probable date
of shipment. This will enable us to

as the rough is received.
Holders of old crop will eo well
to send it right along before the new

Do not mix the old and new to
