What \Ve CObject To.
Saturday last a correspondent who
signs Albus, too timid, or perhaps for
,other good reasons sails under an as
surned name, filled more than a corimn '
of the Revielle in answer to a short
paragraph wIchw appeared in the les- m
senger of the 15th instant., which he says
is an indirect slur against the board of fi
trustees, and goes at some length enu
ineratiug what amounts were collected
by said Ilard in taxes, licenses, Ones
AC., and that so many bridges were ft
built, the roads repaired, the brick cul- bi
verts repaired and a M90 feet culvert
built near the market house and a canal
r dug on Railroad avenue anti so on.
l e presume that the trustees are
elected to do what they have done, it is
their liounden duty toi have the tales b
and licenses collected, and to expend to
that money on improvements in the cor
lporation; there is nothing so extraordi- p
nary ill that. As to the canal near the cl
depot it was dug during the adminstra
tion of Mayor Fleming. The 590 feet cul
vert, the colossal work which is about 40 st
feet long and one foot square, 4 planks S.
nahted together and buried under d
inches of ground is a great thinlg to St
boast of. As to the repair of the brick gu
culverts it was done with the special tak wi
money which by the way is .) per cent
the amount of the corporation tax.
But we do not propose to go over what th
the pretsent board has done, we have nIo
thing to complain aoalt that, or you by
would birae heart of it before in these
colulins. Our objection to the board is wl
that they are not the choice of the Demo- cl
cratic party of this town Although we la.
to not doubt in the least the democracy
of the intlicidual members- -they were
chosen by the Regulators with clo.l ret
doors in secret conclave and not by call
ed demncratlc convention or lmats meet
iug as it should have been dlone, and gt
secure their election a largP number of bu
white, democrats were intihidated and
the election thereby changetl.
The correspondent of the Revielle asks 'tu
what we mean by Regulatot ! why, we abl
wean those individuals--the members li,
and officers of what lie cal!s the white fre
democratic clubs, composed f qgood ,rhite fr,
men and sound demo*rrats. We do not it
doubt that those clubs ire composed
mostly of "good white menl and sound spr
deRmK'rats' lilt i tey are merely instru- ilot
mental in t:he, lha:ds of the leaders whose loI
delnocracy. If we urist judge them by za
the proceedlings of thst great celnvenl- w
tion hehl at Breaux Bridlge sonic time poi
ago, is v.ry conditional and doubtful.
Those proceedinugs said: WIe till stIms!
hIy Ih D)oimt y so lon gl (as it ,rill not Ma

gvntritlZion.u Is this soundl Democracy? the
It is conditiona! and doubtful deumeracy, ger
and this is what we object to. No secret prto
organization for us, but an open frank pea
and unconditional party for the people 'al
tantld by the peoIrle,, aild not by Ia few in -
secrent conclave for the benefit of a few wll
losses. The
The writer tries to impress luon the Jan
uindsi! of our people that the regulators tern
have done an iruuiense good to this con- -
munity, while we say the contrary, they in I
have demoralized our labor, they have day
uine-l the confidence of our town, and chli
have destroyed our comnierce. This i gro
due to regullator rule; go and ask the mat
nmerchants and business people how they bab
like Regulator Rule, and what good it At 1
has done tl'eru, and their answer will be stes
"they have killed the town." ileh

-The itching of the scalp, fallitng of

--A negro boy aged alout 10 years

-- We are told that the few renmaining
regulators made an effort this week to
recruit the n embers who were disgusted
with the organization and quit, but we
do not believe that they met with any
great success. Poor thnlg, it dies hard,
but die it has to.
- All the elements which nature re
quires, to make the hair beautiful and
abundant, are supplied In Ayer's Ilair
\ igor. This preparation keeps the scalp
free from dandruff, prevents the hair
fr.om becoming dry and harsh, and makes
it flexible and glossy.
-The high water in this parish this
spring, at its highest point, was 4 feet 1 1
inches lower than 1884 and 8 feet 5 inches
lower than lS2, A crevasse in Morgan
za or any of the Pointe ('oupee levees I
would have caused the water to reach a
point even higher than 1Ml2.
The peolde of St. Mary, Iberia, St. I
Martin, St. Landry, ,and on the west hank
of the Lafourche, were much agitated
the .arly part of this week by the dan
gerous condition of Morgauza, but
prompt work was done and it now :ap
pears that the immunence crevasse at Pe
can G rove, North Louisiana, which is over
2,(NwM feet wide, is letting off so much
water that it relieves the country below.
The crevasse at Nita plantation, St.
James,is injuring a dozen sugar plan
ters.--Sugar Bowl.
-Some one was burning tall grasses
in the yard of Ju|lge J, O. Ilalphen Mon- s
day at about eleven o'clock when the r
chicken coop took fire and burned to the f
ground. The fire boys in this case have n
made a serious mistake which will pro- a
bably happen again with serious result. d
At the alarm they made a rush for the
steam engine and left the hand engine t
behind; the fire being too far for the u
steamer to be of any use, there being on- t
ly well and cstern water, and the hand
engine which could only be of service a
was in the engine house and the build- ii
ing was burning. TY8 first thing that
should be done in case of any fire is to r
proceed to the fire with the hand englns -
and check it as much as it is possible
until the steam engine can be made to
play a stream of water on the fire. It is
not to be supposed that the steamer will
ever be in time to save any small buildl
ings from burning, but it will prevent d
other adjoining buildings from burning. t
The fire must always and in all cases bse
fought with the hand engines, and we I
trust that Fire Co. No 1 will consider e
this and detail a certain number of its i
members to have charge of the hand en- t
gine. f

Democratic Convention.
The democrats of this town are called
to meet in convention at Fournet hall
to-morrow evening at 7 o'clock for the
purpose of selecting five candidates for
trustees at the elect pn which dill be
held on .Monday the 72h of April !ext.
All those who are interested irt selec
ting a good board composed of our best
citizens should be pr!'sent and vote for
their choice and not let the convention
be ruled by the politicians.
Let our good peooie attend this con
vention and select their candidates, do
not leave it in the hands of politicians to
dbit for you, for you will get sorry for
it. Publi' officers must be selected by
the people; and not lD politicians.
A Few Plain Question@:
IDo you want to get rid of that Head
ache that bothers you so much? Do you
want to drive away that Incipient ('atarh
that is settl!rrg itself in your head? Do
you want to chlan*e that Sallow antd
Plotchy ('onplepion for a skin that is
aright and clear? Do you want to keep
your mind clear, your breath sweet, and
your blood pure? Theo Pe-ru-na is the
thing you need. Now is the time of the
year when you need something thit will
make ytmr blood pure and keep you fret
from tlihose many Spriºg Complaints to,
which all are so so subject. Of course, if
your Catarrh has become Chronic, or the
Inpurifles in your blood have developed'
into tho Disease, then La-cu-pi-a should
be taken, and taken at once. Oitherwise
Pe-rn-na is all that you need, supple
mlented always, however, by Man-a-lin,
to keep the Bowels in good Condition.

pi-a. and .Man-a-lin-uno honusehold can

All the books and papers to commence

organization is a good and solid one, b
and as represented, many of our citizens t
will take shares ib it and make a build

needed.

Jones. lie preaches a half hour in the r
Methodist ('ihrch and takes his depar- s
ture for New Orleans o01
The reverend (or rather irreverett,en- f
sationalist put in his half hour in punm
meling sinners, especially those who t
from within the pale of the church mis
appreciata true religion and by their c
acts bring the case they advocate into
disrepute.
In closing. he said: "Generosity is
true manhood, and stinginess is mean
ness; I had rather be a liberal gambler
thanl a stingy Methodist."
It is to be hoped that brother Jones
meant nothing personal to this locality
