A Celebrated Ose.
Last Monday, Judge U. L. Caro
began the examination of the case of
the State vs. R. W. Hammond, on
the charge of being a suspicious
character, and of having committed
burglary in the town. As the crime
of breaking and entering in the night
time is one which is very seldom
commintted here, and as there were
circumstances surrounding the pris
oner that were of an unusual charat.
ter, a very large crowd attended the
preliminary trial, which, for con
venience was held at the court house.
The testimony of 11r. H. W. Frost
was substantially, that Hammond
called on him at the store, and told
hbm that he was advised against
coming to Thibodaux, but that he
had found this a nice, clean town and
had made up his mind to stay over
night. Mr. Frost identified a receipt
book, a bill for lumber andt -one
blank checks as his prolserty, and as
having been taken from has offioe at
the lumber yard. He said that his
office desk had been opened and his
papers all taken out and overhauled
by some one.
Mr. Waterbury, sworn, said, that
on arriving at has office, on the morn.
ing of the second of February, he
noticed that the door of his office had
been broken open, and on entering
the ofce. The found that both of his
desks had been forcibly entered. He
found that some cancelled fore go
stamp, twenty five dolars in silver
and some cancelled chetks and a
nickleplated dog collar had been
stolen. He identitled the stamps, the
cancelled checks and the dog.collar,
in court, as his property.
The testimony, of Judge Tucker is
to the effect, that he searched the
valise belonging to Hammond, at
Schriever and found in it the follow
iag articles: A file, a chisel, a
screw driver, some stamps, a few
checks, a mack;ntosh coat, a dog
collar and some checks. These things
were turned over to Mr. Max Dupre,
by Judge Tucker, and they were
brought to Thibodaux by Mr. Dupre.
Mr. Co:don Roger, the night
watchman of the Thabodaux and
Lafourehe Banks said, that on the
night of Feb. flrst, he was standing
on the corner of Main and Green
Streets When the accused came up,
and seemed to be surprised to see
some one at the corner. He was
dressed In a black mackintosh, and
asked Mr. Roger the way to the
stable of Mr. Lefort. Mr. Roger
accompanied him to the corner of
Green and Market Streets, and show
ed the accused the stable. The
latter went as far as the corner of
Mlaronge and Market, and then turned
towards the Bayou and disappeared.
He did not go to the stable at that
Mr. E Larr6 stated, that on the
31st. of Jan. Hammond came to his
hotel, the Empire, and registered and
then took supper. He asked Mr.
Larr4 to wake him at 12 o'clock that
night. At 12, Mr. Larr4 went up to
the room No. 17 occupied by Ham-.
mond, but tfon I it vacant. OI
going into the room, Plr. Iearre found
some pad-locks and an empty pistol
case kani an envelope addressed to
Miss Louise Patts. The next moruint,
Hammond came to the hotel, handed
a dollar to the porter for board and
lodging, and left word that he would
return that night and occupy has
room. He did come "o the hotel on
foot that evening, about halt an h,ur
rfter the arrival of the train, looked i
over the register and abked if there
were any persoua in the hotel from I
Virginia. He aiked for his things inu
the room that he had engaged the
evening Ibefore, and on Mr. LarrY's
handing him the. locks, be put them
into his pocket He left the hotel
after this, and Mr. Larr6 did not see
him any more until be saw him
Lania Tolliver, a chamber maid at
the Empire House tesulfed, that on
the morning of the first of Feb. she
went to Room 17, to clean up, and
found in it an auger, a chisel and a I
Mr. 8. V. Traigle stated that the
accused came to his saloon on the 4
31t. of Jan. and asked him for thei
privilege of going into the yard. He I
said that the a'scused came back In
about five minutes from the yard.
This was about 530 P. M. The
accnsed returned at about 7 30 and
said, that he hid a team at the[
stable, and was disappomnted in noti
getting some money which he was
expecting by mail, and would be
obliged to Mr. Traig!e if he would
buy his revolver from him, for two i
dollars. M r. Traigle paid him the i
two dollars and the coeased then
Ift. On the morning of the first of
Feb. Mr. Traigle discover d from
several small holes in the panel of
his tback door that some one had
attempted to break into his saloon.
and be says that his suspicions were
at once directed to the man who had
sold him the pistoL Since buying
the pistol, 31r. Traig;e said that a

count of its fullness of detail, and of
its being a tribute to his skill as s
detective, but we ind that we have
reached our limit in our review of
the case. We can only say, that Mr.
Frost, from the time the first suspt.
cion arose connecting Hammond with
the burglaries committed in the town,
took every possible step to ferret out
the matter to the very end, and was
untiring in his efforts to effect the
capture. Mr. Frost was so vigilant
and persistent to arrest the accused
that be sat up a whole night until
day-light watching for him.
Has to Help she Town in a Practial
The Town authorities, have, at a
great expense, put up a water-works
and electric light pslant, proering the
very best machinery for the money
invested. The consequence is, that
the Town can boast of as good anad
effective a system as any other oom.
amunity in the country. In order to
induce as many of its cmtisems as
possible to take water and lights, the
Council e-tablished very moderate
rates for the service to be giveu.
Every one who has tsakn the service,
whether of water or lights is perfectly
sati.fled, and would not do without
either. 'There are still many persons
of means who could easily aflwir to
have their houses wired, and who
could have water conveniences on
their premises, and yet who vilun.
tarly deprive themselves of these
most valuable advantages.
The Town authorities never in
tended to speculate on its citizens,
and the thought of making a big
profit on the operation of its water
and light plant never once entered
the minds of our city fathers, we are
sure. What they had a righlt to
expect, however, was, that tie citizens
of the municipality would, at least,
make the plants self-sustaining. It
is ncedless to say that the resenues
from water and lights do nit suaee
to pay running expenses, and that
the other sources of reveuue of the
town, have to be drawn upon to meet
the bills for the splendid system of
water and electric lights, furnished to
the public, free of charge. In thus
trenching upon the taxes and licenses
for the expenses of the water works
ard lights, our Council are left with
but scanty means to provide the
necessary improvements on out
streets If all the ordinary revenues
of the Town could be used exclusively
on the strests aad dgs ad a eor
works of public improvement, a dif.
ferent condition of affairs would be
presented, and we would have other
improvements, that would place Thi
bodaux in the front rank of up to
What is necessary, then, is for all
our citizen-, who do not contrihute to
tie electric lighti and water find to
t eke steps to put in their residences
what are called, with much reason,
the "modern improvements." All,
except the very poor, ought to have
at least a hydrant in the yard or
garden, with a section of hose, ready
fir use in case of an incipient fire on
the premises. Those who can
afford it, and there are many families
here that have the means, should
contract for a bathroom fitted up
with the flush system of water-closets
and a stationary bath-tub supplied
with water from the mains. These
advantages and conveniences can to
placed in a house, at a very moderate
expense, and there are several
meebanuies in this town, who know
all about them, and who could order
them for any one who may desire
them in residences. It the majority
of our people could be indnceel to
di-card the old style dirty and f Ihy
privies with their noi-ome an I un
wholesomne odors, that poison the
atmosphere and endanger the publi.
bralth, as they certainly add to the
discomfort of the neighbors, this town
would become more dlesirable as a
piane of residence.
The notion prevails. to some extent,
that it ias very elstly to istal electric
lights in a house. Of course, if
elaborate fixtures are ordered, the
cosmt .la certainly considerable, bout, a
man of moderate mesas can easily
have a few lights in his house at trifg
ling expense. The Town authorities
will send thbir o·erator to iut up
wiring in any house, on demanld, and
will charge oh!y the cost of the
material ad for the actual labor of
their workman. Nothing can be
fairer th:,n this.
We hope, therefore, that every on',
who canm afrrd it, will hasten to
iunstal both water conveniences and
electric lighs on their pcmses.
