Now to Build Up Your Town.
Every business man, nay every
citizen is an important factor in
plromoting the commercial and indus
trial growth of his town and parish.
There is no room for croakers in any
progressive community. As indivi
duals we must always speak well
and encouragingly of our resources
and the possibilities that await de
velopcment in the future. This is
essentially a hustling age in all lines
of business aun we have to keep
abreast of the times or get left in the
march of progress.
We, however, can accomplish but
little by desultory, indivi.iual action
di building up great enterprises. To
reach the goal of success our business
men and pnhlic spirited citizens must
unify their fort-es, must organize
their capital and influence into one
Harmonious whole to as to effectually
establish and maintain all of those
Industries and enterprises which will
aitd to the commercial growth and
prosperity of town and country.
To this much desired end the
SENTINEL would suggest the organi
zation of a Business League, or
Board of Trade in Thibodaux. If
you want your city t o grow, to in
crease in trade, an and assume a healthy C
commercial status, the business men t
must all put aside their petty jealon. t
sles and selfish purposes, subordinate
every thing to the good of tih+^ -*.
and pull together as one 1..:
establish all needed public enter.
If rice mills are needed and pay
handsome Irofits in the rice belt, if t
cotton fucto i,.s are built and flourish f
throughout the cotton districts of the f
soouth, why should not Central sug;ar it
factor ies be equally in demand and P
pay large dividends in this great
sugar cane belt of our State ? With I
steamlboat navigation and railway i
facihtles Thibodanx is an idell lIcwali
ty for a Sugar Refinery and shoull a
have one. Situated in the heart of ti
tbe geat sugar industry with all :
other environments to foster and n
make a .sunccess of such an enterprise T
it behoo\ves our citizens to take v
action and build one. A Centrlal
sugar refinery would add materially
to the commerclal importance of our
If New Orleans can build rice
mills, and send out agents into the "
country and buy rough rice to mill P
and make a good profit on invest ir
ments, why cannot Thibodaux capital 1
erect a rice mill also. The coast rice la
fields are not far off andl much of ci

A pretty fair idea may he obtained
of the profits in rice mi'ls when it is t
alleged that the sales of rice bran o0
and rice polish almost pay the run. di
ning expenlses~ of a mill after it isoi
established. The town of Crowley
had five large rice mills running di
during the past season and three of
more will be finished in time for the s
forthcoming crop. All of these millslP
made go) prolfits and employed a i
Il rge number of men. All of these '
factories andl mills give employment di
to a n"mllbr of wage earners who
speniid their money with the mer. at

.r New Statutes.
At the last session of the Legisla
ture three very important Acts were
passed and promulgated which we
will publish for the information of
Act No. 83. ImHposes a license
tax of $50 00 upon retail dealers in
ry pistols and $25.00 In pistol car.
S Act No. 98. Prohil.its the sale of
cigacetteQ, c1garette paper and tobac

. $25 00 to $10t0.00
1I Act No. 120. Prohibits the mar

e The two latter Acts went into
i effect from day of promnulgation.
S King Humbert Assassinated.
King llunlmbert was assassinated by
an anarchist, nam ln Angelo Bressi,
at ,Monza, Italy, at 10 o'clock, p. inm.
on last Sundaty, just as he entered
his carriage on his return from at.
tending a distribution of prizes in
connection with a gymnastic comnpe.
tition. lie was struck by three shots
fired in quick succession by the
assassin and died in a few minutes.
It is allegedl that Bressi lived in
Patterson, N. J. for some time, up to
about the mitdle of May, and went
eto Italy expressly to kill Kin:g Hum
The King was a very popular
monarch and greatly beloved by his
peo!)lt and this atrocious deed will
cause still more repressive measures
nto be taken in Europe and America
to suppress anarchism.

R Boosevelt Slanderous Tirade.
o "Rough Rider" Roosevelt, the
nominee for Vice President on the
i. National Republican ticket, lets his
insane egotism run riot with truth
and decency as well as with d:',loma
tic political policy in his vituperative
utterances already being made
against the Democracy and the South.
r Only a few days ago he said : the
"Democrats stand for lawlessness
is and di-order, dishonesty and dishon.
,s or, disaster at home and cowardly
te shrinking from duty atiroad," totally
ignoring the fact that about half of
. the regiment of Rough Riders who
fought at the battle of San Juan
were southern men as well as Demo
crats. But in the San Juan affair
,'Teddy" Roosevelt obscured Col
" Wood, Gen. Joe Wheeler and all the
e troops by his awe-inspiring presence.
It would be well for Roosevelt to
Sexplain the Republican "Embalmed
IBeef" scandal and "Cuban Postal
defalcations." etc. etc. before making
r wholesale charges against the Demo
lThe Chicago Journal, an indepen.
dent paper. thus in part addresses
f Roosevelt respecting his wild tirade:
,"If there are six or seven million
persons in this country who 'stand
r for lawlessness and disorder. dishon
esty and di.lonor, disaster. at home
o and cowardly shrinking from duty
abroad,' God help the country. It is
worse off than China. But thele
'-Be more tolerant, Colonel. Don't
let the vapors of the caavaas get into
your head, heating your mind and
corrupting( your speech. Remember
Sthe fate of Ingalls. He was as clever
I as you are and atmost as picturesque,
but he mistook the temper f the
SRepublicans. He thought they want
e I to hear the Democrats abused and
slandeled, and he did, making a very
8 am ising job of it. VWhere is he now ?
e Peddling his unimportant opinions to
the yellow newspapers."
Mr" Bryan On The Democratic Plat.
William J. Bryan himself madethe
followmg statement on the democra.
r tic platform:
"I am very.- much gratiffed to learn
of the adloption of a platform which
is clear and explicit on every ques
tion. The controversy over the silver
plank was not a controversy between
men who differ in principles, but
rather a difference of opinion as to the
best method of stating the questiou.
"If we only had Democrats to deal
with, a simple reatlfirmation would
have been sutricient. but we have to
deal with the republicans as well as
democrats and some of the repub'i
cans would misconstrue a re:lltfirma.
tion and endeavor to twist it into an
evasion or abandoment of the sflver

and conciencue of the people, and we
must tak- them into our confidonce if
we expect them to have eonfid.nue in

'The industrial trusts haa alarm
ed many who were not with us in our
fight against the mony trlst in 9ti.
We shall not disappoint them; we
shall not cease our efforts until every
private monopoly is dlestryed.
"Imperialism appeals to many as
the most dangerous of the evils now
menacing our country. It involves
not only a change in our ideas of gov
erament but a return to the militar.
ism of the old world. No matter how
many men may differ as to the rela
tire importance of the question .,now
before the country, every one muist
recognize that an economic evil can
be corrected more easily than one
which attacks the foundation of gor.

government is a thing made by the

The Baton Rouge Capital Item has
this suggestive paragraph:
"The white population of B.ton
Rouge is not increasing, while the
negro population is at least one-tiurd
greater t'an ten years ago. If this
continues the time will very soon
come when it will be impossiole for a
self respecting white person to live
here. There is but one way left to
change this order of things, and that
is for the whites to organize a social
We have recently heard reports of
the largely increased number of loaf
ing and vagabond negroes on the
streets of Shreveport, and this, too, at
a time when labor is greatly needed
on the plantations. But however
great this evil may he, there has
never been a time since the war in
that town when colored population
were not taught to know their place
and by the strong hand, if need were,
forced to keep it. The younger
generation of blacks' in the cities
especially, are arrogant and disposed
to be insolent, if not checked by the
superior race, and to judge from the
comment of the Item, our Baton
Rouge friends may have been a little
sl,w to recognize, or at least to act
upon this fa:ct.
No one doubts linbut that prosperity
o,f our Southern cities. New Orleans
in partieular. and of the country at
large would be greatly enhanced if
the negroes were ielega.ted to the
plantati in where they properly belong
akd white men employed in their
iplaces as i,orte:s, draymen, stevedor
es, etc. Granting, what the merchants
maintain, but what we are reluctant
to admit, that colored i;lor, as a rule,
is more Wffe ctive, and even more te
liable than white labor, the getting
rid of the presence of this class would
tend largely ,o the removal of the
worthless vagabonds who are chiefly
fed from the kitchens of the white
and who make burglary a profession.
With a much smaller population they
have a much larger representation
before our criminal courts. The
