.ilegal Appropriati n.
Tbhe Police Jury has showed
Tome liberality at its last meeting
y appropriating one thousand
dollars of the funds of 1906 and
4ostning a warrant for that amount
4a 1995, before the budget of that
year is made.
This is an act which is repre
1beusible in many ways, in the first
;placee we consider that the issn
,ance of this voucher in 1905 out
of the revenues of 1906, is illegal,
ias the second place, we believe it
ds illegal for the Police Jury to
.give the money of the tax pay
-ers in the manner it has given this
" one thousand dollars. A help to
:induce railroads to come to one
parish or to one section must come
from the people through taxation,
and this must be with the consent
of the tax payers, not by the Po
There is another thing that
-should have been considered by
,the Police Jury before giving
-away the imaginary surplus mo
:aey of the coming year. This
ipresent Puce Jury have recently
compiled the indebtedness of the
Parish which amount to nearly
thirty thousand dollars, and noth
ing has been done by the Police
Jury to meet the payment of this
honest and legimate indebtedness.
It seems that it would be more
appropriate and. proper for the
Police Jury to economize as much I
as possible in order to put aside a
sinking fund in order to pay the
just iudebtedu.es of the parish in
stead of making appropriations to '
Abuy rights of way for rich railroad '
The creditors of the parish
shbould enjoin the Police Jury and a
stop the payment of this illegal
warrant, and teach a lesson to the a
Police Jury as to which is their p
right and their duty.

The country Doctors, especially

--Two new cases of yellow fever
were reported from Lafayette
Tuesday, making up to that day,
four cases having occurred there.
These cases were simply reported
without any history being given
as to their origin. This was the
cause of all kinds of rumors being
circulated. Some reported the ca
see in.the town of Lafayette, other
reported them in the Parish, near
Lake Martin, others, more profi
cient in grasping new theories ap
plied the long distance experturiss
as applied by Dr. Brady at Bun
kie, and knew all the details, both
patients were very sick, one with
the black vomit etc., and others
expressing the opinion that the
town was full of it. These people
bhave right of their opinions, and
like the expert of Bunkie, have a
right to express them. If the an
thorities had been more explicit
in giving out the cases, they
would have avoided all kinds of
wild rumors and supposition that
will no doubt work an injury to
the town and parish of Lafayette,
as these rumors repeated from one
I person to another are very often
accepted as facts by the general

The Southern Pacific Railroad
Co., have taken charge of the
Avondale detention camp in order
to facilitate the sugar grinding.
During the grinding season a large
number of persons come from dif
ferent sections of the country to
the refineries, most of them skilled
labor, and large number of labor
ers. The Southern Pacific know
ing the absolute necessity of these
laborers for the grinding season,
have decided to run the camp at
their own expense, the Railroad
Company will only charge a nomi
nal price, just to cover expenses,
to those who will take advantage
of the camp in order to be permit

Three Jurors Cured

Mr. G. W. Fowler of Hightower, Ala.,
relates an experlnce lhe had while serving
on a petit jury in a murder case at Edlw
ardeville. country seat of Clebourne
county, Alabama. He says: "Wlile there!
I ate some fresh meat and it gave ume
choleria morbus in a very severe form. I
was never more sick In my life and sent
to the drug store tot a certain choleria

M, Chauvin, who had $21,00 sto
lon from under his pillow a few
weeks ago has had the money re
turned to him intact. There seems
to have been as much mystery at
tached to the finding of this mon
ey as th its loss in the first place,
for when it was taken the person
who got away with it had to go in
to the bedroom through the living
roopu where the family was all the
evening, and as the money was
found in exactly the same place it
had been taken from, Mr. Chauvin
is at a loss to tell how it got back
again. He believes it was return
ed in answer to the old nine days
prayer and fasting that still has
many believsrs in this section,
and which he faithfully practised
for that interval after his loss. -
