Tho Passing of the Legislature.
The Legislature adjourned Thursday
" night, on schedule tiune. What it has
done and what it has left undone has pass
ed into thljeistory ofLonisiana. Butin the
eyes of implartial ovscrvers what it has
done is mlore worthy of praise than what
it has failed to do, is deserving of blame.
The Democrats of this session had a harder
task before them than at any time in the
last decade, the session of 1892 excepted.
They confronted a more determined op.
position than ever, made up, to be sure,
of anomalous elements, butt no less difficult
for that reason, to conq:er. There were
discord and treachery in the ranks of the
party. Wounds made in 1892 were still
sore to the touch. That hybrid party,
The Citizens' League, introduced new ele
e ments of confusion. All these conditions
rendered the work of the present session
very difficult, and at first seemingly im
y possible of good result. That discord has
been in a great degree dissipated, that
the Democracy has been able to secure
e the assistance of good men outside of the
party, that the most important measures
have been carried through to a most suc
cessful issue is creditable to the level heads
I of the party leaders. The election of
r. Senator McEnery did a great deal towards
Y healing party wounds. The passing of the
election and registration laws viudicated
the Democracy's desi.e to correct existing
abuses, while the constitutional conven
vention me:asure was wisely planned for
the same purpose, but not so as to open
the flood-gates of discord and factional
On the whole, the Legislature of 1896,
has done no harm to the party or the state,
which is more than such bodies in the
Sast can boast-and it has donegood which
only the future can estimate.

Lecture Friday Night.
The social gathering of the Nor
mal, which took place last Friday
i night, at Pythian Hall, was very
well attended anld afforded munch
enloyment to those present. Prof.
Himes delivered a lecture on "The
Child Garden," treated in a light,
I popuhlar style, but withal containing
much information and food for
thought. His remarks upon being
received into our local order
of "Knights of Rest" which sit
continuously on a certain corner,
and whose initiatory and all-impor
tau't rule is to drop Into the first
5 "vacant chair," got every body into
a laughing humor, as did his pre
sentation of a leather medal to Prof.
