VOLUME X. Wi
With this number the M ESSEN- fol
OEl enters its tenth year. Ever
since the first issue of the paper o,
appeared for public patronage, it wi
has come out regularly, without
missing a single issue. The en- wi
terprise has been a financial suc
cess from the start, and every year Cr
its business has increased, and is ts
still increasing, which is a sure oi
sign that the weak efforts of the to
paper for the public good is fully ar
appreciated by the people.
It is useless for us to repeat A
what the course of the MEsBENOER I,
will be in the future, the past nine a
gars of its work is recorded in its d,
file, and stands a guaranty for the j,
future. It will ever be watchful b
over the interests of our people, it ti
will demand justice and protec- of
tion for our people, it will work si
for the advancement of our town a
and parish, it will advocate the V
establishment of industries in our tl
midst, and defend the rights of a
our people. 61
The MpBENGER will continue to i
keep a close watch on the admin- a
ietration of justice in our parish,
and will report, criticize and con
demn all miscarriage of the law,
and will lay the blame or repon- a
,aibity for such failures where it
We extend our cordial thanks to f
our patrons for their valuable pe
tronagl, and trust that they :will
contiue to favor us with their va
luable patronage as long as the

The United States dredge boat

ent parts of the bayou Teche since t
a few weeks past, and will, we un- n

Why Hood's Wins. e
President Lincoln said, "You cannot
fool the people a second time." They r
are too quick to recognize real merit or r
lack of it, and cling only to those things I
which they find to be what is claimed
o for them.
It is especially gratifying that the
aile of Hood's SarsaaUIlla increase most
rapidld is those sectionp where it is best 1
The inference tI plain. Hood's Sarsa- 1
- pasilla has proven that it possesses gen
uine merit. It maintains a high stan
ard, which othern'esaet ever approach.
It is'tlie people's favorite blood-purify
lug and building up maeielne, and is
more popular this year than ever before.
Il All this because Hood's Coure
21 THE BOUNTY,
The following special telegram
which we take from the Times
Democrat, gives about the situa
ct tion of the bounty:
or Washington, Feb. 17.-A fresh
a element of danger was added to
de day at the trying ordeal through
re which the bounty proposition is
an now passing. This new menace
ºe is the illness of Senator Shelby
M. Ca llou, of Illinois, who was
Staken sick this morning and who
may not be able to attead the
.- meeting of the Senate committee
l* on appropriations, which has been
called for to-morrow morning. As
or previously advised, the committee
ef before which the bounty amend
ment is now pending consists of
or nine members. Five of these are
led thought to be reliably certain for
the bounty. They are Senators
ill Call (Florida), Blackman (Ken
Stlucky), Allison (Iowa), Hale
(Maine) and Cullom (Illinois.)
e- The failure of the sub-committee
to favorably report the bounty
e- bill indicates very plainly the at;
c. titude of Cockrell (Missouri) and
to Gorman (Maryland) of the com
u'n mittee. It is pretty safe to infer
what will be their course in full
.- committee. Mr. Teller is known
ato be very much opposed to the
,- bounty, his hostility being such
Sthet he may, if the condition ap
Bo I pear o he favorable, take the floor
rn and spek in opposition to the
i- concession asked by the sugar
_ -I .. . . .
Thu bearing of Senator Briase
the last member of the committee,
is not clearly known. It has been
said by some that he would favor
the payment of the bounty, while
it is stated by others that he has
declared himself as unwilling to
assist tlhe Louisiana people in
their fight in any way. He is the
wealthiest man in the Senate and
ranks among the most influential
members. Under the circum
stances the status of the commit
tee may be set down as five for
and four against the bounty in
cluding Senator Cullom, now on
the sick list. It will, therefore,
be seen that Mr. Cullom's pre
sence at to-morrow's meeting is an
important feature in the long
struggle now nearly reaching cul
mination, and that grave dangers
are threatened if he should be un
able to attend.' A tie vote would
be unable to get the amendment
out of the committee, or if drawn n
out would bring it into the Senate
so weak that the fight there for its
passage would become almost a
The Louisiana delegation em
ployed their time to-day in trying
to get a postponement of the com
mittee meeting announced for to
morrow, if it is found that Mr.
Ctllom's illness will prevent him
from attening. Greats efforts are "e
aIo being made to win Senators
Gorman and Brice over to the di
bounty and get them to throw the he
great weight of their influence in fe
its favor. It is felt that with se
ven of the committee in its favor w
the bill would pass the Senate by bi
a good majority. The indorsement 1.
of Senators Gorman and Brice al- di
one would be effective in securing
eight or more vote now in doubt. w
It will thus be been that to-mor- le
row's developments hold in store b:
much of interest to thousands in w
Louisiana. Failure to add the b
amendment to the sundry civil ri
bill now ready to be reported n
t would be almost fatal. It might a
t be possible to accomplish the fi
same propose by other methods, -
but the chances of doing so would
necessarily be slight in consequ
ence of the defeat sustained and
the limited time at the disposition
e of Congress.
Ex-Congressman Darrall, of
Louisiana, will reach here to-mor
row to assist in shaping legislat
tion favorable to the bounty.
