In behalf of the hunters of La
fourche parish, I respectfully ask the
Police Jurors of this parish to set
aside the unjust game law passed at'
their last meeting. Set it aside and
uphold the State game law. "This is
what we want, and It covers every.
thing, protects the game of all kinds,
and fixes the time and date of hunt.

unjust law because it gives to some a
privilege that it does not to others
What makes one man better than
another ? Why do you want to give
one man a privilege to kill game and
shut another friend out. I'm sur
prised at our Democratic friends and

voted for this law. How many
Democrats that worked and voted
tor our Democratic friends that are
members of our Police Jury, andl
what are we fighting our Republican
triends today for ? For allowing
privileges to some and shutting out
)thers. This law not only shuts out I
tome bunters but it shuts out the
rerchants that sells the ammunition

Platform, Adopted at NHw Iberia.
In my first paper, I characterized
Mr. McKinley as the most vacillating
executive we have ever had, and
woondere4d how our Republican sugar
planters could so blindly rely upon
him and his promises to save their C
Industry. Since then I find the e
following extract from the Omaha e
World-Herald, which so aptly sets a
forth this most prominent character- "
istic of the President's nature, that I r
cannot withstand the temptation to
lay it before your readers. Here it

ioon contained in the extract quoted tr

rhich is, quoting. "We can trust

It may be; but so can we trust

the Democratic party "to deal fairly

sugar, rice and lumber, in ndiustment

with the responsibilities that have

s' hould lead us to trust in the Demo
Seratic party which proposes to turn
loose the 'hilippines, which will
enable us to pursue the same econn
mic policy towards them as we
pursue towards the rest of l he world
rather thau' in the Republican puntv
which proposes to annex the island.,
ithout defning its economic policy
in dealing with them.
Let as now consider the %econd

a matter of faith and hope, which

But when they assert that the past
r treatment of our industries by the
Republican party furnishes a confi

protection that party will afford, they
enter the domain of history and of
fact and state a conclusion which I+
propose to show is absolutely without I
foundation, at least in so far as it
relates to sugar, the principal indus

What has been the treatment of
our sugar industry by the Republican
In 1870, during President Grant's'
first administration, when the cry
arose for a reduction of revenues
springing from the war tariff, sugarw
was selected for the sacrifice, and the
tariff on it was materially reduced.
Presidlent Grant and a large follow
congressmea favored the annexation
of San Domingo which would have
given us free sugar from that Island;
a ache me which was only defeated by
the stubborn resistance of the Demo
The Republlcan party under Grant
gave us the treaty with the Hawaiian
Islands which admitted their sugars
''into this country, free of duty, until
the present Republican administra-"
tion permanently annexed the islands
and established free trade with them
forever. The Democrats, under
President Cleveland, had comabatted
and defeated the scheme hatched by
President Harrison, another Republi

sooner installed than the old Repub
