"Gov. Heard has appointed J.
Ward Gurley, as District Attorney
of Orleans parish, to fill a vacancy
caused either by his own negli
gence or ignorance of the law, in
not having qualified within the
time required by the statute. This
appoinsment renders the Governor
a particeps criminis in the viola
tion and overthrow of a mandato
ry statute. We have been under
the impression all the time that
the man from Union so signally
honored by the Democratic party
beyond his just deserts, was a
smooth bore politician of small
calibre and now we are immovably
fixed and steadfastly confirmed in
that opiuion.--The Louisiana De
It takes mighty little to confirm
the Democrat steadfastly. But,
perhaps, it was "steadfastly con
firmed" all the while in the de C
to find fault with and crititize -he
Governor, and was only too glad
of a pretext to register a little
kick. No harm done.-The Senti
The Democrat is right, alawyer
who is too ignorant or negligent
to qualify within the time prescri
bed by law is not fit to be intrus
ted with public affairs, and the
Governor was wrong to re-appoint
to the job he had lost by his own
ignorance or negligence. A pro
seo-uting attorney of a big city like
New Orleans should possess more
knowledge of law or more business
ability, for a man who can lose
such a fat job as District Attorney
of New Orleans through negli
gence, if not ignorance of the law,
will not give assurance 'to the pub
lic that he will fill the office he
holds to their satisfaction.
Gurley should have lost his job.
Unnecessary Lost of Time.
Mr. W. S. Whedon. Cashier of the First
National Bank of Winterset, Iowa, in a
recent letter gives some experience with
a carpenter in his employ, that Will be
of value to the mechanies. He says: "I
had a carpenter working for me who
was obliged to stop work for several days
on account of being troubled with diarr
hoea. I mentioned to him that I had
been similarly troubled and that Cham
berlain's Colic. Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy had cured me. He 'bought a 4
bottle of it from the druggist here and -
informed me that one dose eared him,
and he is again at his work." For sale
