Good Roads.
WE hope that the good people of the Parish
of Plaluemines, not,; ithstanding the disastrous
storm of September 20. and the enormous losses
therefrom resulting, will keel) in mind the g.ood
roads iroblem, which is one of very .grave im
)portance to us all. Anyone who will look at a
map of Southern Louisiana w ill see how the
Parish of Plaquemines projects out into the sea,
a miniature perinsula, a hundred miles long,
with the Mississippi i ver rl.i; (,ret 'y
through its center. This 1re ,: i .,, * : la
to) two hundred mIile.; of road,vay, that i.;
a hundred miles on each side of the river, makes
the good roads problem in our parish one of the
most serious thirat I'e- r.::: i:-. Co ,I
tion, of gwood . s ( f V,),11 c. i v -e ., ot t,,"(.
neighbors and of goo1i society. if we had the
good roads all of these things w(ould come to us
far more quickly than if we still go about by
jump P
ago a planter living twenty-five or thirty miles
down the river required three dlays to go to and
to return from New Orleans. Rising early in
the morning and putting a watchman out to look
for the coming boat and that boat arriving at
uncertain hours, anywhere from nine in the
morning until three or four in the afternoon, a
passenger from the Lower Coast would be land
ed in the city far in the night. When the ill
fated steamboat Empire sank at the wharf in
New Orleans she landed so late in the night that
many of her passengers remained on board, and
some of them were lost, as is now only too well
remembered.
Arriving in the city late at night, with the
following day devoted to business, the third day
would be consumed in returning down the river.
The writer of this article has embarked on a
steamboat at the Lower Coast landing in New
Orleans at 11 o'clock in the day and got thirty
miles down thd river, going ahead all the time,
stopping at various landings taking, on bricks,
putting off lumber and doing such work as was
done then, and reached his destination, thirty
$iles down the river at two oclock the follow
ing morning, or fifteen hours time to travel
thirty miles. Our railway service has done
away with'ail of this old time trouble, but. it is
wise to remember these old troubles of ours ;n
these latter days when we have railways and
are sometimes disposed to abuse them for their
slowness in travel. They are certainly a very
great improvement upon the old time methods
of nearly a generation ago.
This improvement has come to us, but we
must not forget that elsewhere they are infinite
ly more progressive, and all up through the
Western States they have interurban electric
railways, hourly trains going to almost every
direction, and we are still hampered by our rel
atively slow methods of trave,l by the long dis
tances that confront us and the bad quality of
our roads, rendering local access to each other
among our own people much more difficult than
it should be, We must solve the good roads
problem in some way and the more we discuss
it, the more throughly we appreciate how much
we are behind other states in the union, perhaps
the more quickly this full realization will lead
us into earnest, active efforts for the betterment
of our roads.
Some Tests of Genuine Democracy.
IN these days of "Republican Insurgents" on
one hand and of "Protective Tariff Demo
crats" from the Gulf States on the other, it
would seem desirable to occasionally refer to
some good and proper tests of democracy, the
genuine article being in our opinion a rare thing
and those democrats who are the most vocifer
ous in declaiming their democracy as being the
genuine article, all wool and a yard wide, as we
used to hear some years back, are among those
who, if not ignorant of democratic ideas, are
certainly insincere in their expressions of their
loyalty to the Democratic Party. That excellent
New Orleans daily, THE STATES, under the edi
torial control of men whose intellectual capacity
is of the highest order, while claiming that its
democracy is of the simon pure variety, fie.
quently seems to get confused in its logic and
to think that there is no test for genuine democ
racy, excepting in the dogma of Free Trade,and
no test for so-called republicanism excepting the
belief in a Protective Tariff.
In a recent editorial the able editor of the
STATES, in an article suggested by the confer
ence of governors in Washington, brought out
the matter of the easy extradition of fugitives
from justice as one that should meet with
quicker responces throughout the entire country
than are now given to extradition papers and
•adverts to the constitutional provision that the
authorities of one state should recognize the
honesty and sincerity of the judicial proceed
tnps of the other-states and make these surren
e ers with less question than is now made. ThE
editor goes so far as to say that logically the
states would apparently be compelled by forct
to make the surrender at the behest of the
other states. This, however, is modified in the
last paragraph of the editorial in the STATES,
which appeared in its issue of Jenuary 21, ic:
which the editor says that it is inconceivablk
that force could be used between the states.
The fugative slave law was one of the imme
diate provoking causes of the war, at least this
was claimed in the North, the authorities there
generaliv refusing to surrender fugitive slaves
on the (lemands of Lhe governors of the other
states and when the federal courts endeavored
is to enforce their orders, riots occurred. Fortu
nately, such extreme issues as these rarely oc
cur in the history of a nation and it is to be
holped that no more such x ill present them
selves in our history. At the sai'e time. the
pre.ent disposition towards centralization is un
h q!uestionahly producing much friction and the
rights of the states are soclearly set forth in
s the Constitution that any suppression of them
l by the central government meets with a rebuff
{- whenever these cases get to the Supreme
a Court.
e THE STATES admits in its final para
graph that the same doctrine of State's Rights
that permits one state to call upon another for
the surrender of a so-called fugitive from jus
il tice, rives the soverign right to the state sc
called upon to dispute the propriety of such sur
s render. On this account the governors of the
e various states are far more careful now thai
. i ,,uich aýy fugive fromtl -o-caiied
h jice has committed. In many cases it has
e been found that these charges are frivolous. If
s a citizen of Louisiana should go to Rhode Island
v and buy an invoice of cheap jewelry, or to Con
,,ti ! y i of Yakee notions and
i;ing them to New Orica;ns and honestly fail
s there, these extradition laws make him at once
1 liable to be taken back as a prisoner to Rhode
Island, or to Connecticut, to be tried there, at
( the so-called scene of his crimes and to be pun
t ished as the law there may direct.
The governors of many of the states of the
union have for many years been accused of al
l-)wing extradition proceedings between the
states to be utilized in the collection of debts.
Many years ago this grew to be so much of an
t abuse that the governors began to refuse to
grant extraditions where the so-called crime was
for money values, just because of such abuse.
Now coml es our democratic journal, THE STATES,
indicating the desirability of an easier availme::t
7 of these extradition laws and greater uniformity
in the proceedings and, may we not say, of the
easier use of this machanism of our democratic
7 form of government for the enforcement of the
7 collection of debts, THE STATES cites the case
of the fugitive from justice who was indicted
for killing Gov. Goebel in Kentucky, or acces
; sory thereto, and who sought refuge in Indiana,
Ssecuring it for several years, the governor of
- Indiana refusing to honor the requisition papers
I of the governor of Kentucky.
The Kentucky instance wvas a very conspicu
ous one and was on the admittedly criminal side
of the law. The only justification in the world
for not honoring the request of the governor of
Kentucky for this would be one that we some
times acknowledge in our own state as between
the various parishes, when an accused person
succeeds in securing a change of venue for his
trial because of presumed local bias against him,
which he convinces the judge would make it
impossible for him to secure a fair trial. This
seems to have been the conclusion of the gov
ernor of Indiana in the fugitive from justice in
the Goebel case. All laws, however, are arti
ficial things and have their difficulties and we
should hesitate very much in surrendering the
great principle of state sovereignty because of
such difficulty. The remedy is unquestionably
far worse than the evil in the principle involved.
The retention of the sovereinty of the individual
states is one of the cardinal principles of democ
racy which perhaps the able editor of the
STATES newspaper does not fully appreciate.
Cost of Western Stock Feed.
WE have before us a postal card from a
prominent commission house in Indiana, in
which they offer to deliver in New Orleans No.
1 timothy hay at $20.40 per ton and to deliver
No. 1 timothy and clover hay at $19.80, with
weights guaranteed and goods guaranteed as
sold. Thus we see that we here are in the
habit of buying hay that costs us $20 per ton
laid down in New Orleans, when in our own
state our greatest expense in cultivating our
staple crops is to keep the grass out of them.
This applies to all of our staple crops, cotton,
corn, sugar cane and rice. Had we not better,
in this grassy county of ours, with our copious
rainfall that always insures a heavy grass crop,
utilize our own grass and make into hay and
get these $20 per ton, or save anyway the ex
penditure of that much money for such hay as
our own animals use?
There is no better hay on earth than Bermu
da grass hay. It is so excellent that afiimals
will leave other kinds of hay and seek it if
offered under the same, conditions. Peavine
hay, under the certain conditions, only occur
ring at times, secures the preference of live
stock. After peavine hay, however, has been
harvested for some time, even if well secured
in hay lofts, it loses that delicacy of flavor that
makes the animals love it so .much when it is
fresh. On the other hand, well cured Bermuda
grass hay is good the year around and very at
tractive to live stock. Our lands will produce
two to three tons per acre of this kind of' hay
and produce it at a nominal cost and if we only
grew it upon our spare lands we would find that
e we would save thousands of dol
S:lars for ourselves and hundreds
e of thousands of dollars to the
e state at large by engaging far
e more largely than now in this
culture. VerbumI sat sapieniti.
