A SINGUL1s CASE.
A very interesting ecision 4
rendered, on Janaory 8th, b$ Judge
Blackman, of the 3rd Circuit Court
of Appeals, then in session at
Opelous in St.Laudry prisch.
It appears that Eraste Dupre was
appointed in 1892 a Police Juror
for the parish of St. Lai Ilry, and
was removed by the Governor on
the 13th of June, 1893. Dupre
then obtained fr'm the District
Court an injunction restraining
Isaac loos, his successor, from iu
terfering with himn as Police Jury
man, and restraining the President
of the Police Jury from recognizing
said Roos as'a member of the police
jury. The District Attorney then
instituted proceedings against Du
pre for intrusion into office, and
the case was tried three times,
twice by a jury and once by the
District Judge, and at all times
iDupre obtained a judgment in his
favor.
Filnally the case was appealed to
the Circuit Court, and Judge Black
man affirmed the decision of the
lower Court on the ground that a
Police Juror is a "ward officer,"
and that, though appointed by the
Governor, he cannot he removed by
himn, Iut only by a j ultmnent of the
District Court, as provided in arti
cle 201 of the Constitution of 1879,
leaving only to the people power to
bring suit for the removal of a
Police Juor on the ground of cor
ruption, oppression or malfeasance
in office.
Fort-two tramps were put off a
train in one day last week at Crow
Icy.
On yesterday Capt. J. B. Don
nally vacated the U. S. Marshal's
office, and J. V. Guillott took pos
session. Capt. Donnally has gone
into the coal business.
Last week the Police Jury of
Donaldsonville appropriated $250 to
to the Fire Company of the town,
and the Board of Aldermen $750 to
the same organization.
The Franklin parish police jury
pissed a resolution at its last meet
ing exempting any railroad company
from taxation for a period of five
years. A railroad mass meeting will
Ibe held in Franklin on the 27th.
Judge Ferguson of New Orleans,
said recently on receiving a petition
to be lenient on a prisoner, who had
been convicted before his court:
Gentlemen, I am sorry, I have al
ready sentenced the prisoner; but if
I had received your petition before
doing so, I would have just doubled
his time.
The Democratic Executive Com
mittee of Webster parish, met in
Minden on Wednesday last and
called an election for February 3d,

This cotton future business is
worse than any lottery that ever
existed, and still our grand and
glorious moral slenators,. Whitr and
Caffery opposed the re-chartering of
the Louisiana Lottery Company
and are now doing everything they
possible can to defeat the Hatch
bill. The following is from the
Arkannsas Pre, and every word of
it is true:
The New York cotton exlchange
consists of 454 men. It is limited
to this number. Each man pays
$10,000 initiation fee. Nobody, is
allowed to sell cotton or handle it
in New York except those liensed
by these men. They bought and
sold last year 40,000,000 bales,
nearly four times as much as was
raised in the world. They get 10
cents per bale for buying and sell
ing each bale, or $4,000,000 last
year. In addition to this they get
fromn $50,000,000 to $100,000,000
of forfeitea margins from those
who dreal in futures. This is the
biggest gamnibling concern in the
world.

Politscal Gossip.
New ,Tlei 1 th t recean date
an aetcle cowsinnng& lot of politi
cal gossip nor. said to be current on
the streets of the city. We give
our readers the article for what it is
worth:
While the present is not. the most
opportune time for political gossip,
still some of it can be heard with
reference to the approaching sena
torial contest. It is announced un
authoritatively, both from' the Jef
ferson and Crescent Democratic
Clubs, that Don Caffrey will be
elected United States Senator on the
first ballot and without difficulty,
the only one i, the race to cut any
figure being 'ongressman Blanch
ard.
The electio4 of Senator Caffrey is
secured siu, pl because the moajority
of thie city raders, including, the
Mayor, Conk -essmiau Davey, Vict
Mauberret, ohn Brewster and
others, have dickerea" and agreed
to give him t. eir support. For the
votes which they are able to tarn
over to th4 Senator, they, have
secured an al ndance of political re
cognition fr.1m the Governor and the
Federal officers whom the Senator
controls. The city leaders will
drop ex-Senator Jonas entirely,
most of his strength being caught
up by Caffrey. -
The city leaders came to an an
derstanding with Senator Caffrey
and have succeeded in securing
nearly everything which they care
to have. Some of the city deiega
tion, however, decline so far to vote
for Caffrey, though they say they
may change when the time for vot
ing comes." These are revenue
members and include three city
Senators and two Representatives.
Collector T. S. Wilkinson, since
he has been in office, has been a
source of worry to the bulk of the
city politicians and liaewise those
who train with Senator Caffrey and
Gov. Foster. While he has ac.
corded abundance of recognition to
Congressmen Blanchard, Boatner
and Robertson, he has ignored the
Governor, Senator Caffery and the
city leaders almost entirely. In
fact, he has only appointed one party
S-named Skipwith-whom Senator
Caffery recommended flie was
recommended also by Senator White
and Governor Foster, wording it so
that the Senator claims only one
third of one appointment.
The city leaders have received
practically no recognition wlhateer
from the Collector who, altogether,
has made rely few removals. l r.
Wilkinson, it is said, is looking to
succeed Gov. Foster, and it is simply
holding out in the matter of city
people until he knows "where he is
/at."
This is all gossip, of course; still,
the story is going the rounds to the
effect that Gov. Foster is very anix
ious to secure the tolitical support
of Mayor Fitzpatrick, some even
going so far as to spy that the two
have already reached an understand
ing and will be pullinv in harness
together for the next election.
U. 8. Mails And Lotteries.
Judge Nathan Goff, of the United
States Circuit Court at Parkersburg,
W. V., has rendered a decision, in con
nection with the application of the act
of Congress which prohibits the use of
the United States mails for the trans
mission of lottery circulars, tickets or
other matter, in which he sustains thei
expressed opinion of many of our most
eninent lawyers.
The law says that an indietment may
be brought against an offender where
over the malls circulate the prohibited
matter. Paul Conrad, president, and
others, of the Louisiana Lottery Com
pany were indicted in West Virginia
under the law and now Judge Goff, in
a long, elaborate and erudite opinion.
holds that prosecution cannot be main
tamined outside of the State or district
in which the offense was committed,
and he declares, therefore, that so
much of the lottery law as givers
authority to brng indictn:ent in any
Stdte or district in which the mails
circulate, is unconstitutional. Accord
ingly, the defendants were dismissed.
An offender must be tried in the
place where the offense is committed.
This is a maxim of law. It did not
and no doubt does not suit the anti- I
lotterites. and one of their great boasts
was that indlctmdnts and trials could
and would be secured in every county
in the country. In the pursuit of the
one thing which they deemed wrong,
they were willing to and actually did
strike at the very foundation of the
liberties of the people.
Now, then, wha:t becomes of the
anti-lottery tightP Sincethe Louisiana
Lottery Company will issue its tickets,
circulars and other matter from Hon
duras and can start such matter from a
thousand seperate post otfices in this
country every day ia the year, if it
chooses to do so, what becomes of the
prosecution and thie prohibitive statue?

a srasvlle Q uette. °
Last wee Wre said it was bettler'
be bequ ' than rich. So- WP'
Riches take wings and fly away, 'bnt
the lucky man is alwa)s in doors
when a squall comes, eats off the fatof
the land, has no night-mares, but en
joys a serenity of mind and the favor
of those about him. His rabbit foot
never deserts him; hii luck is accou'nt
ed unto him smartness and his name is
one to conjure by. If any fave. are
to be dispensed, he is the first at the
dispensatory, not that he has claims
superior to other men, but because he
is a lucky man. He is always the pro
tege of some big man and as this big
man hclds a full hand the protege
fares well. The protege never carves
for himself but lets others carve for
him.
Last spring we had a Lieutenant
Governor Parlange; last fall we had an
Associate Justice Parlange, and this
winter we have a United States District
Judge Parlange. This Lieutenant
Governor, Associate Justice and
Federal Judge are one and the same
man. The rapidity with which this
man has acquired different high offices
indicates that there is either a dearth
of ability among the Democrats of the
legal fraternity of New Orleans or that
he was born lucky. What has he done
so great that he should have such a
run on public offices to the exclusion
of other faithful and long-serving
De)cmoctars?
The Lieutenant-Governorship would
satisfy the a:nbition of some men, and
a position on the State supreme bench
would be the acme of the aspirations
of many, if not of most, of the lawyers
of this State. But this man of luck
can't, or will not, halt even there.
His friends push him on, up higher,
while other good, faithful Democrats
must wait.
We know Mr. Parlange is a good
man, an honest man, an anti-lottery
man and a sound lawyer. But threc
are scores of others in New Orleans who
:Ire just as good, as honest, and as able
as he. The only difference is this: He
was born lucky, while they were born
in the --dark of the moon." His for
mer law partner is close to the Presi
dent, his anti-lottery comrade is also
near the chief magistrate, while the
head of the State government is in
harmony with the Senators and in fa
vor of his lieutenant. Herein lies the
luck.
To the victors, their aiders and abet
tors, belong the spoils. So much so
that even the President is made to over
ride his publicly expressed declar
ations, made at the beginning of his
present term of office, that no office
holder need apply. On the strength of
this declaration Gabriel Montaegue,
who wanted office as badly as a man
who has been on a spree wants water,
was gotten iid of; while in spite of that
declaration this man of luck lands
quickly and effectually, successfully
and successively in all the fat offices.
The dispenser of the State patronage
:and the givers out of federal places are
pulling together and driving for a cer
tain object. Like all politicians their
object is to ,s'triengthen and perpletuate
their faction in office. They, from a
political stasndpoiot. cannot be blamed,
as all politicians do this way. But
this faction will have to go outside of
their ranks for recruits, if it is perpet
uated in porter. If our political vis
ion is not entirely wrong we see the
handwriting on the wall so far as Sen
ator Cafery and Gov. Foster are con
cerned. The Governor's faction is en
tirely gone to pieces in this section of
the State. The third party men, and
many of the alliance men who support
ed him for governor will do so no
more. forever, and if the senators had
acted wisely they would have put a cer
tain prominent congressman of this
St:ate where they have placed Mr. Par
lange. and thereby have gotten rid of
a formidable rival for gubernatorial
honors at the next State election.
A Constitutional Convention
In the Opelousas courier of a few
weeks ago Judge E. North Cullom
gives the following reason why a
constitational convention should be
called:
The constitution of Louisiana
was, when first adopted, by far too
Ivoluminous, and has been made
much more so by the subsequent ad
ditions of repeated amendments.
It is now a matter of consider-.
ble dlficulty to say how many
amendments have been added or
what they were designed to provide
for. It would require no little re
search to enable one to collect anud
put them together.
The last legislature provided for
the appointment of some gentlemen
to make recommendations of other
amendments, and judging from ex
pressions which were reported to
have fallen from some of them, I am
satisfied the constitution will be
come a code of still more complit
cated laws.
I, therefore, am in favor of a con
st tutional convention, the delegates
to which shall be elected with
plenary authority to frame and adopt
a constitution without referring it to
the people for adoptioq.
We need a constitution made of
new cloth and not of patch-work.
Experience has taught us what is
necessary in the organic law and we
should not hesitate to incorporate it.
Let us have one we can safely afford
to live under, without being driven
to ingenious and continued evasions.
A constitution should be brief,
comprehensive, and coached in lang
uage as simple and plain as the ten
commandments. Sufrage should
be qualified, so that intelligence elsy
guide ignorancoe and be able to pro
vtde for its systematio amelioration.

V. M. PURI)Y. Forema-;
Lake Providence, Jan. 12, 1894.
The Republican party is by no
means sure of the ground it has
taken on the tariff question, and this
shown by the fact that Senator
Sherman and other prominent lead
ers depreciate the talk about making
McKinley the Republican nominee
for President in 1896. They are
afraid of the effect tariff reform will
have on the country, and the advant
age it will give the Democratic
party in the way of popularity with
the masses of- the people. If the
Lepublicans:really believe that the
revision of the tariff would paralyze
the industries of the country they
would aid the Democrats in passing
a radical tariff reform bill, because
they know very well that if such a
bill as the Democrats intend to pass
through Congress destroys business
and brings on disatlter, there would
he a reaction so great in favor of the
Republican party, which would land
it in power in 1896, and the Demo
cratic party would be wiped forever
qut of existence. The Republicans
have never been known to permit
patriotism to stand in the way of
party advantage, and they will op
pose the passage of the Wilson tariff
bill because they know it will Ibenefit
the people and yield the Democracy
another tremendous. victory two
years from now.--States.
The sympathy of their many friends
will be extended to Col. and Mrs. A.
W. Crandell in the loss they have sus
tained in the death of their bright and
proimising young child, Neville Buck.
She was the only daughter of fond and
doting parents and the light of a hap
py household. her bright face and
cheerful disposition shedding warmth
upoc all around her. Seven summers
had passed over her head and she
seem.ed on the threshold of joyous girl
hood. But on Sunday night last death
laid its heavy hand upon her and her
gentle spirit took its flight to the realm
of eternal happiness. Death is alwayS
sad, but never mnore so than when it
cuts down the flower of a home.
Col. and Mrs. A. W. Crondell have
