A Belated Explanation-A
In a recent ssue, the Lockport ,
Eagle makes this tardy explanation :
"We don't want it to be understood
that we are at enmity with all the
people in Thibodaux Far from it;
we have many friends there; in fact,
for most of her citasens we have the
greatest esteem. But there is a
"rinag" there (and we hope the good
people of Thibodsaux will pardon as
for baying used the word "Thibodaux"
in the paet instead of "ring') whose 4
methods we don't wish to indorse
and which the people of the entire
parish we believe condemn."
People who have followed the
course of the Eagle know that it has I
repeatedly abused this town sad its I
people; it has never missed an op. I
portunity to eas: slurs at and belittle
The Comet had its tilts with the
Eagle on the subject of its wanton
attacks, and when once the Eagle
overstepped the bounds of decency, I
as at seemed to us, in discussing the 4
appropriation of one half of the re
venues of the Thibodaux Bridge by the
town, the s8lrmiuL showed that our
people had wronged no one in that o
matter, and still less had they swin. I
led any one.
Daring all this controversy, and
the long silence which followed it,
the Eagle has not vouchsafed one
word of apology or explanation to
the people of Thibodaun fur its I
tormer abuse, until it gave uexpreusio, I
in its issue of the Brst instant, to
that above quoted.
The apology was a long time com
ing, and now that it has been give,
one wonders whether it had not been
better for it to have remained anat.
tered Whatever reesotment oer I
people might have felt at the time
abuse was heaped upon them, has
long bsea oggotton, and it mst be
poor satisfaction for themto be as.
sured at this late day, that the
knocks sad blows figuratively dealt
them were not meant for them but
for that imaginary thing, called the 4
"ring." How enfortunate the Eagle
man has been to have said i his past
tirades, "Thabodanz," "Thabodasu,"
every time he meant 'riag",-esp
cislly as "ring" u a much aborter
word, possibly more euphonlous and
certainly more impersonal, than
,Thibodaux." But the "good people"
of Thibodsax are noted for their
brondmindedness; they bear naught
but good will and friendship for the
good people of Lockport and of the
restof the parish, and as they are
ever charitably disposed, especially
towards the weak and erring, we
doubt not that they will readily grant
the Eagle man the pardo he eraves 1
for his almost aspardonabie mistake;
accoept the mUrasme of his greatest
esteem for "most of her oitisene;"
bid himgo his way and "sia no
And if the Eagle would permit u
a suggestion, we wold like to say
that the parish of I~ntorebe is a
grnd old plrish and ts peopI a
noble and chivalrous one who may
look with pride and etistction o I
their past achievements and fee the
