Rival Companies Petition
At a meeting of the City Coun
cil Thursday night the petition of
the Louisiana Electric Railway
and Power Company for an order
of election to vote a tax to aid in
building a road from New Iberia
to Lafayette was read, and Attor
ney Vuilemout and Presideut Bar
row addressed the Council in ad
vocacy of the measure, explaining
the object of the compuny. Jules
Godchaux of New Orloane, repre
seuting the Southwestern Traction
Company, asked that the Council
postpone Rotion on the petition for
thirty days, to allow his company
time to prepare its petition. A
warm discussion followed between
President Barrow and Mr. God
chaux, as to'the merits of the re
spective schemes proposed, but
the Council decided to postpone
action and thus allow the South
western Traction time to prepare
its petition. Both companies bold
out splendid indue'ements to, the
town on condition of a ten year
tax in aid of the projects.
The town of Lafayette and the
Parish, have bought a traction en
gine and grader, which will be
used upon the streets of the town
and the roads of the parieh. We
are of the opinion that the trac
tion engine will give g.tetter satioe
tiou than the present system of
working the roads, will do more
and better work and cheaper.

Jury was held Monday to take up

In Tuesday's primary three satst
on the Supreme bench were con

and Sommerville were returned by ,
handsome majorities and the ven

We congratulate the twosucoess

Chief Justice Breaux was de- A
feated largely by reason of the fact
that he had practically reached .
the retiring age. During the cam- A
paigu he made it clear that if re
elected he would renounce his
right to leave the bench with pay,
but the people of his district ap. t
pear to have preferred a younger
man. They emphasized their prr
ference by votting pretty general
ly for the youngest of the live con
testants who were in, the field.
The Chief Justice will carry
with him into his retirement the

the members of his own profession
but of the State as a whole. When
he completes his term he will have

est tribunal and made a record of
unflichiug devotion to duty.
Apparently his successor is to
be Judge Ciarles A. O'Neil, now
a member of the district bench of
St. Mary. It is no small honor
which Judge O'Neil has achieved.
Opposed to him were four eminent
memuberrs of his profession, one of
them the head of the State's high
eat court and another the retiring
Attorney General, and to have
been practically successful in the
first primary against a field so dis
tinguished evidences the faith of
the people of his district in his
ability and integrity.
Judge O'Neil, as the figures
show., came within 1932 votes of
beating all four of his opponents
in the first primoary. His neirest
opponent is 4400 votes behind him.
The latter is contemplatinga se
cond race. But we think it likely
that Judge Reid, on reflection,
will change his mind and that
Judge O'Neil will be declared the
nominee when the State Commit.
tee meets next week.
Judge O'Neil is young, talented
and highly regarded by the mem
bers of his profession. He has
made a spectacular race and what
ever the outcome we congratulate
him on the results of the first pri.
