iThe incleineilt weather and muddy
streets prevented the procession in
honior of the Fete de Diere anniversary
from parading through town last Sun
day, as was intended. A procession
formed at the Catholic Church, how
ever, and, headed by the St. Cecile
band, marched around the ancient
building.and after halting for awhile
before the kiosk in the church yard
until-some ceremony pertaining to the
t occasion was performed, re-entered
the church, where mass was held. The
s celebration was largely attended by
our Catholic citizens, who are ever
zealous in performing the require
ments of their religion, and especially
those of the nature of celebration of
sacred anniversaries. The St. Mary
Jefferson College band of St. James
did not arrive to participate in the
ceremonies of Sunday last.
Gov.'Kellogg this week appointed
Mr, Felix Reynand of New River a
member of the Police Jury of this
parish, to fill the vacancy caused by
the declination of Mr. Adelard Lan
dry. The new appointee is a gentle
man of indomitable vim and energy,
and one who expresses a determina
tion to hlabor for 'the advancement of
the public interest by assisting in the
speedy reduction of parish taxation
and indebtedness and securing a re
turn to the cash system in the admin
istration of the parochial government.
If this resolve be carried out-and we
do not doubt but it will be--Mr. Rey
naud will win golden opinions from
our tax burdened people. The Police
Jury as now constituted is a body that
promises to inaugurate much needed
reform, and gain the confidence of the
community, which the preceding Jury
betrayed and lost.
On Sunday last we enjoyed the real
pleasure of a trip to New Orleans up
on the splendid steamer Katie, and
we shall take early occasion to repeat
the same, as all who travel upon the
Katie once desire to do so again. The
dinner with which the passengers were
served shortly after the boat left the
Donaldsonville landing was a most
sumptuous meal, and combined .vith
the supper spread before New Orleans
was reached, was worth almost the
whole of the passage price-$2 50.
We were agreeably surprised to find
Mr. A. McVay, the handsomest clerk
on the river, in the office, where his
presence will contribute to increase
the already widespread popularity of
the Katie. We have met Mr. McKay

The D. S..C. B. Association has ad- 1
dressed the following note to the Rev.
Father 'Cuppens of the Ascension ,
Catholic Church of this town, the -
same being published in the Leader of
D. 8. C. B. HlLL, June -.
Father. Cuppces-Your application, to 1ave
us play at te' celebration on the 22 inst., has
been received, au4, duly considered by us;
the majority voting in the affirmative, but
the number of the minority who assigned as
their reason for their refusal, the strong op- a
position of yourself to our association, which r
is unwarranted or in any manner justifiable,
the number voting against playing being 1
sufficient to prevent the band so doing.
D. S. C. B. AssocTrosN.
While no one will question the right
of the association to decline the invi
tation of the Rev. Father, no matter
how ungrammatically or confusedly i
the declination may be framed, we
feel confident many of their warmest
friends even will deprecate the mo
tives and bad taste that induced them
to make the columns of a public jour
nal the medium through which to
make their refusal known, especially
when the reason for such refusal is of
the delicate and rather unpleasant
nature evident in the present instance,
and the person to whom the commun
ication is addressed occupies a posi
tion to which so much respect is due.
A private note, it seems to us, would
have been ip much better taste. We
much regret that circumstances should
exist to produce ill feeling between
a ruling minority of the 1). S. C. B.
Association and the Catholic sect of
the community, and hope that mutu
al concessions and explanations will
shortly ensue that shall tend to re
store perfect harmony for all time to

The Carroll Lake Republican is quite
complimentary to the CHIEF:
Decidedly the best and most ,ead
able paper in the State (except ofcou re,
the Lake Republican,) is the D)onald
sonville Cu.r'.. Its editor, Mr. Lin
den E. Bentley, is a lively young
plumibago spreader, and judging from
the prosperous appearance of his jour
nal the I)oualdsonvillians know when
they have got a good paper. A few
more such good home papers in this
State would soon kill off these clam
shell outsiders, and raise the standard
of the art preservation.
The Bastrop Republican also has a
good word for us:
The Donaldsonville CmurEF is able,
spice, aid cheerful. Who would not
be cheerful if they handled as many
greenbacks as the C(' :'F editor ?
Petition of &. re ,a,4 ee Or
Sder of the ude of the ourf J udicial
District Court, Relative Thereto. r
As promised last week, wepiblisli
herewith the full text of a petition of
A. J.'Braud, Jr, to the ijdge of the
District Court, annexing the order of
Court issued upon the representations
made in said petition. Lcck of time
has prevented us from preparing
iomments upon the matter, but in r
future issues we shall treat of the
subject exhaustively if necessary, giv- 1
ing the views of large property hold
ers concerning the same.
The petition is as follows: t
To the Honorable 0. J. Flagg, Judge of the
Fourth Judicial District Court, in and
for the parish of Ascension:
The petition of Adelard Brand, a resident a
of said purish of Ascension, respectfully
That petitioner owns real and other'taxa- i
ble property in said parish of Ascension and t
Is a tax-payer, he is interested in the proper
administration of its affairs. That your a
petitioner has always paid his parish taxes I
as soon as they became exigible, and that he I
is ready anl willing to pay whatever taxes !
may be levied upon his property by the 1
constituted authorities tf said parish for the
purpose of defraying all legitimate expenses 1
incurred for the support and maintenance
of its government, and for other lawful i
purposes. But your petitioner avers that 1
is such ta'x-payer, for some time past he, in
common with other property owners in this 1
parish, has observed, with considerable ap
prehension, the increasing reckless extrav
agance: and criminal waste in the adminisira- 1
tion of the finances of said parish, in every
department tlhereof. That during the past
three years, the parish tax each year has 1
amounted to from twenty-five thousand to
thirty-five thousand dollars, and, notwith
standing.those extraordinary andi enormous
levies, parish warrants to the amount of
more than thirty thousand dollars, as your
petitioner is iufolnied and believes, are now
outstanding and unpaid. P'etitioner furtheri
represents that said "warrants" purport to
be obligations of the parish and l;re drawn
by the Secretary of the Police Jiuny on the
Tleasulrer of the parish and are made pay
able "" when in ftunds," to the order of the
payee thereof.
'T'hat sait warrants are endorsed as fol
lows, " hReceivable in payment of dues.
......... 187 .
(Signed) "......., Parish Treasurer."
That said warrants or obligations are in
the form of negotiable instruments and are
assignuable as. ordinary negotiable bills or
notes, by the blank endorsemlent of the
payee thereof. Tihat all of said warrants
have been issued at ditferelit times by RIo
dollph Brand, forner Secretary, anll Fred.
Foll, the prescunt Secretary of the Police
Jury of this parish. Now your petitione'r
further represents that said warrants have
been issued and procured to be issued, in
the mllost careless, reckless and corrupt nlan
n cr, and that a very large nulmber of thelm,
representing mllny thousands of dollars,
were issued and obtained without any con
sideration whatever to this parish, but that
the same were procured for the corrupt and
- unlawfnul purposes of private gain at the
expense of the tax-payers of saiurparish.
Your petitioner further represents that
the administration of the late Police Jury
during whose career in office warrants were
issued unlawfully to the amlount of nl:ny
thousand dollars, le-camne so flagrantly cor
runit and criminal, that the Grand Jury of
- this parish, empanelled at the May term of
this Honorable Court, addressed tl:hemselves
earnestly and diligently to the task of
remedying the evil, to the extent of their
lilited powers, and found true bills of in
I dictment against three of the mlemlbers of
the said Police Jury for tihe crimne of extor
tion in office, one of wliolmi \iwas convl\icted'
0 and the oilier two resigned their offices
tlirouiigh feiar of being likewise convicted.
Your 1peitfioner -further represent that in
the report eof the said Grand Jury to this
ihonorable Court the following statements
a1re made which have created just alarm in
the mind of petitioner for the safety of his
property in said parish of Ascension, viz:
'- -The liberal manner in whichl parish war
ranllts were ordered to be issued and the
reckl'.hs lmannerll of their disposal is not inl
keeping withll the ilipoverislhie condition of
its treasury. 'The task of enullleratting the
d maun unwise and injudicious acts which led
to tle bankrupt condition of this pIarish, is
,ne that the short te'll ll lotte tilo ils will
not plerliit ilus to luidelrtake. hlowever. we
will iendlavor to mentio(Ln a fb\ of the
d lagrant grievances which our tax-payers

Sof ll, instance wh,.re such has been the case,
lbut there is nothing to lrev'nt it. andll in
ordetr that it might be t-deteted, it would
take an ilvestigationl of llouthls.
Second-The several a mounts appropriated
andt set forth in the tableau of approximate
expenses, as pubulished, are not adhered to
and warrants are issued and registered as
standing indebtedness against the parish
where no provision has been made, and
thus a vast debt accumulates. Tie market
becoiles overstocked with them, they are
consequently sold for 60cts. discount, and
any one supplying the parish charges three
prices : thus it will be seen that, to every
one dollar coming in three are going out,
and thus it will ever be, unless some wise
means are adopted, the parish will never
recover. Thousands of dollars have been
squandered as will more fully appear under
the heading of Parish Finances." That said
report of the (rand Jury also exposes the
fact that the Justices of the Peace, C'ou
stables, and other officers of said parish,
taking ladvantage of the careless, reckless,
anlid corrupt administration of thei parish
inaln:es. obtain warr:tants for sulms to
wlilch they are not entith d in law, to an un
limited extent; that tlhe issue of said war
rants being thus subject to no cheek or con
trol whatever, the market becomes flooded
with parish warrants and the parish is over
\whehned with an illegal floating ihdeltetd
lness'tf m ( lay thousand of dollars, and that
the said parish warrants now outstanding
exceed the enormlous sum of thirty thou
sand dollars. All of which will appear more
fully iby a duly certified copy of the said
Graud Ju.ry report hereto annexed for refer
cnce. Your petitioner atve.rs that the state
lments contained in said report, touchilng the
manner of obtainining and issuing parish war
ralnts, and the great loss ani injury result
ilrg therefrom to the tax-payers of said par
rish. :re true in every particular as will be
shown at the trial hereof.
Petitioner furth(er represents that the said
parish warr;lnts dlrawn ly the Secretary of
the Police ,Jurv on the lParish Treasurer :nutd
piayable, " hen ill hlind."s, to the order of
lhe patice thieretof, are absolutely null and
void and not lindini on the parish of As

and empowering tueI' Police Jury of this par
ish. to issue or cause to be issued, warrants
or obliga:tions of any kind, and espciially
negotiable warrants of the character abollove
mentioned and desc(ribed; That the See
retary of tlhe Police Jury was and is, utterly
without authority or power to draw and is
sue the said \v;lwarrants, and the Iarish TreIs
urer was d1( is likewise without authority
or power to endorse on the sanle " Receiv

In the pari of As.easion, ani is m gross
violation of your petitioner's rights of drop
erty and that the same is also in violation of
article 5 of the Amendments of 1791, to the
Constitution of the United.States. Petitioner
further represents that the Police Jury of
this parish are about to levy a parish tax
ostensibly for the purpose of defraying the
expenses of the parish for the current year,
but that instead of collecting and receivmng
legal funds wherewith to pay and defray
said current expenses the said Police Jury..
the Collector and the Parish Treasurer will
collect and receive, in payment of said tax,
the illegal and fr.auduleut warrants aforesaid
and the expenses of the parish for the cur
rent year will remain and continue to remain
Petitioner further represents that, he has
no adequate remedy at law to prevent the
collection of any parish tax levied on his
property for the purpose of.paying or taking
up, by receiving the same for taxes, the said
outstanding illegal and frandulent warrants,
for the reason that the object and purpose of
said tax is not made apparent in the resolu
tions of the Police Jury imposing the tax
and in the "list of expenses" for the current
year. That petitioner can only obtain relief
from said intolerable burden of taxation, by
suing out an injunction against the con
stituted authorities of said parish, restrain
ing them from paying, or receiving in pay
meat of lparish taxes, any of said outstanding
parish warrants. That unless the said con
stituted authorities be enjoined and re
strained therefrom, they, the said Police
Jury, the State Tax Collector for said par
ish, and the Parish Treasurer, will continue
to pay said illegal and fraudulent warrants
by receiving the same in payment of parish
taxes and parish licenses, to the great
damage and injgry of said parish and the
tax-payers thereof, and that the said unlay
tul acts of said authorities and officers will
cause your petitioner irreparable damage
and injury to the amount of more than five
hundred dollars. 'These premises considered,
petitioner prays that a writ of isjunction be
issued from this Honorable Court, addressed
to the Police Jury of this parish, through its
duly qualified President, to Linden E. Bent
Icy, State Tax Collector for the parish of
Ascension and ex-oflicio Collector of parish
taxes, and to Christian Klinu Parish Treas

them and each of them, from paying out of
any monies belonging to the parish of As
