The Police Jury has amended the Sun day law so as to include ice-houses, ice cream saloons and vendors, and coffee stands among the establishments which are not required to close on Sunday. There will be an auction sade of new buggies and carriages in front of the Lee Hotel on Saturday, the 3rd of July, af fording an unequaled opportunity to procure first-class vehicles at very low prices. Most of our rice planters have p nlmp at work suppling their fields with water from the river, the stream having fallen to such an extent as to smake the flumes cut through the levees no longer avail able. Heavy showers of rain every day, have been the order for the past week. Rice farmers could stand this sort of thing for an indefinite "length of period," but sugar planters think it is growing monot onous. Don't fail to attend the concert to be given at Domnin ique's Hall, Sunday eve ning, the 20th inst., by Mrs. Ricor auni her pupils, for the purpose of raising funds to build a chapel in the first ward. Admission, 50 cents. Parties pursuing trades, professions and occupations sulgeet to license tax are notified by the Sheriff that the tax is exigible and they are expected to come forward without delay and take out their licenses. See advertisement. Ex-Gov. Michael Hahn,, Juidge of the Twenty-Sixth Judicial District, met with a cordial reception from the mem bers of the bar and many other friends upon the occasion of his visit here on the 3rd inst., to fix the suit against Judge Cheevers for trial. The effects of the physical prostration which followed his -recent accident-the fracture of his crip jpled leg-are still visible in Judge Hahn, but he is gradually recovering his former health and strength. .THE CENsus.-Judge H. O. Maher i progressing rapidly with the work of enunderating the population of this ward and if the Enumerators in the other dis tricts of the parish are doing as well, their labors will be easily concluded within the thirty days prescribed by law. Judge Maher informs us that he has nearly completed the census of Donald sonville, having enumerated over 1900 souls. He anticipates that the popula tion will exceed 2200, a small increase over the enumeration made in 1875 which placed the population slightly in excess of 2100. Mr. A. T. Grigsby to-day received notice of his appointmelt as Enumera tor for the third district of the parish, to succeed Mr. G. G . Hill, resigned. Mr. Grigsby has taken the official oath and will begin work at once. Reed's Gilt Edge Tonic regulates the bowels. DANcIhCG.-MrS.' Steart of New Or leans, wishing to open a claes for instruo tion in dancing, can be seen at the Robt. E. Lee Hotel. Persons desirous of form ing a class will please call without delay to make arrangements. PROMENADI CONCERT.-Sunday eve ning, the 20th inst., after the picnic of the Grasshopper Base Ball Club, a grand promenade concert will take place at Phoenix gIall, under the auspices of the Independent Brass Band, doors opening at 7:30 o'clock. Admission to upper hall, gentlemen, 25 cents ; ladies free. Re freshments served.in lower hall. Moyse must reduce his heavy stock of dry goods, boots, shoes, notions, liquors, groceries, provisions, etc., as the store building is to be sold and lie may have to vacate at short -notice. Therefore he is offering splendid bargains to custo mers. The proof of the pudding is in the eating-so go to Moyse's, at Feitel's old stand, and see if his representations are correct. We are pleased to note the return to Donaldsonville of Mr. Jacob Lemann and his sou Myer, who have been visiting the Hot Springs and other pleasant resorts. They will remain here about two weeks, then hie away again for the sunmler. Myer is the picture of health and ap pears to be in his usual happy frame of mind, and his respected father doesn't seem to have turned a hair in the past ten years. Mr. Harris Heath, manager of Mr. Ben Gibson's rice plantation opposite Donaldsonville, sent to the CImEF office this week a sample of the splendid rice growing on the place, and we must confess to being surprised at the ad vanced state of the grain and the prom ise which it gives of a prolific yield. We trust that this promise may be am ply fulfilled, to the credit of Mr. Heath as a cultivator and the profit of his es timable employer. A sack of the sisters and the cousins of Ned Ilsley's large sample potato made its appearance at the editor's residence last Saturday, in the custody of a young gen tlemnan of color, who brought word that none of the aunts of the big 'tater could be found. We didn't miss the old ladies, Ned; the young'uns are powerful gobd company, and we're much obliged to you for the pleasure of their society. Of the pumpkin's virtues some may prate, or Fill our ears with tomato racket, But give to us old Ireland's 'tater, With or without his shining jacket. Capt. D'Evereanx Jones, the gallant commander of Cofield Battery, is duly installed in the Sheriffs office as super intendlent of the tax collecting depart meut, and a better qualificd or more ac commodating gentleman it would be hard to find. Tax payers will find him prompt, courteous and exact in the transaction of his oflfciail duties. With Capt. Jones as Tax Collector and Capt. Landry of rihe Canioneers as Parish Treasurer, the people may rest assured that the public funds will always be in safe hainds, either in time of peace or war. Three of the gentlemen appointed on the new School Board-Messrs. J. A. Landry, C. D. Blonin and Richard Mc Call-have I.ot as yet. signified their ac ceptance of the appointment by subscrib ing to the requisite oath of office. The blanks for this purpose are in the hands of the Clerk of Court, and as columissions will not be issued to the members until these oaths are administered and re turned to the State Superintendent's of fice, the gentlemen named are requested either to come forward and qualify, or signify their non-acceptance of the ap pointnment in order that other parties may be designated in their stead. It is desirable that the new School Board should organize at an eariy day and it can not do so until the meimbers are in receipt of their commissions. TIE CONCERT AT NAPOLEONVILLE. InI accordance with previous arrange ments the concert advertised to be given in Napoleouville, on the 26th ult., for the benefit of Christ Church, took place that evening, and the following pro gramme was rendered: PART FIRST. Overture,.......Napoleonville String Band Song, (comic) .....................Dr. Guiot Waves of the Ocean, (instrumental duet).. Misses N. and E. Tete Cheerfulness, (vocal duet)... Mrs. Cook and Miss A. Munson La Fiancee du Manrin, (song)..Miss M. Folae La Rosa Espanula, (soung)......Miss O. Kit tredge Song ............ ...... Mr. R. N. Sins La Favorite, (song)..........Mrs. C. Barton La Femme de l'Exile, (song)--. Mrs. Lofton Pugr, Norma. (vocal duet). Misses B. and N. Jones What are the Wild Waves Saying ....Mrs. E. U. Bourg PART sECON)D. The Maniac, (recitation)......Miss E. Jones Drama-Courtship Under Difficulties. * Mr. Jones,................W.... . E. Howell Mr. Snobbleton...................F. Gaudin Miss Pruden.t* Winterbottem,.. Miss Mollie Folse For several days preceding that oil which the concert was to be given the weather was very inclement and unfa vorable, and so continued until late into the night set apart for the performance. But, nothing daunted, the zealous and determined managers went on with their noble work; it was for a holy purpose, the hearts of the projectors were in it, and with woman's nuwavering devotion they conscientiously labored for its suc cess. We learn, through private sources, that though it did not prove the grand success-financially-it was expected to be, yet, all things considered, the re suit was satisfactor-y. The attendance, though small, was very appreciative and liberal. The management confess them selves satisfied; they cleared expenses and realized a small amount for the church. The affair was exclusively un der the management and direction of Mrs. G. W. Jones and her accomplished daughters, Misses Isabel, Nellie and Evelyn, to whose untiring, unrelaxing efforts the satisfactory result is due. Reed's Gilt Edge Tonic cures chills and' fever. The resisters of the Sunday law pro pose to enjoin the ordinance so far as it applies to the corporate limits of Donald sonvilfe, counting upon a skilful inter position of the law's delays to stave off the enforcement of the measure for an indefinite period. If the law gives a Judge any discretion in the matter, it seems to us that it might be properly used in a case like this to prevent the employment of the legal machinery for such a purpose. There will probably be an interesting game of "diamond cut diamond" over this Sunday law. The CHnIEF office was brightened last Monday evening by an unexpected visit from that prince of good fellows, George A. Freret, Esq., who has abandoned the business of keeping store in Opelousas and accepted a position as traveling salesman for the house of Mr. James Mc Grath of New Orleans, a well known wholesale grocer and commission mer chant. George has the requisite tact and vim to succeed in this line of busi ness and we hope to see him do so. He looks as handsome and healthy as over, and the pure air that sweeps over the St. Landry prairies appears to have agreed with him wonderfully. District Court has been in session all the week, transacting civil business, and a number of cases have been disposed of. In next issue we shall give a synopsis of the matters finally passed upon. Court has adjourned until Monday next. Sit tings will be held on that day, Thursday and perhaps Friday and Saturday, when the term will be adjourned. This will give the Judge and District Attorney a full week to prepared for the term which opens in St. James parish on the 28th instant. Judge Cheevers may go to St. James inl the interim to hold a prelimi nary examination in the case of the men under arrest for the murder of Mr. Theo gene L. Gaudet. The concert given by Mrs. Ricor acid her pupils at Domninique's Hall, last Sun day evening, proved a very pleasant en tertainment, but onling to the very un favorable state of the weather the audi ence was not so large as it would other wise have been. Inl order, therefore, to afford those who could not attend last Sunday an opportunity to enjoy the en tertainmlent, it will be repeated next Sunday evening, the 20th inst., at the same hall. We bespeak a large attend ance, and can give assurance, on thelvi deuce of those who were present at the first perfornance, that the visit will am ply repay the time spent and the small outlay of money. Admnission, only fifty cents. A special Deputy Sheriff conveyed to Baton Rouge last Tuesday night the prisoners samtenced to imprisonment in the penitentiary for crimes of which they were convicted during the present term of the District Court. The names of the prisoners, their offenses and terms of im prisonment are as follows: Leonce Fabre, petit larceny, one year .James Erkhart, petit larceny, one year; attempting to set fire to Court House and Jail building, live years. Eugene Guedry, two charges of petit larceny, one year on each charge. The D)eplity Sheriff returned home Wednesday evening with a receipt from the penitentiary clerk for the three pris oniers. A iimost pleasant and enjoyable aftfair was the soiree wvhich occurred at the resi dence of Widow Octave Terrio, in Don aldsonville, on the 20th of May, in coim Inenmoration of the twenty-first birthday of that lady's eldestsbn, John F. Terrio, Esq. There is no more popular young man than John in town, and his friends gathered in numerous array to attest by their presence the esteem in which their young host is held and the gratification it gave them to aid in celebrating an im portant epoch in his career. The party was a merry one, and the evening wore swiftly away in the pastimes usual to such occasions. In addition to a number of our most attractive Ascension beau ties, there were in attendance Misses Addie McGrath and Florence Funke, two charming young ladies from Baton Rouge, whose presence enhanced the enjoyment of all, and especially of the young men. The members of the Inde penilent Band were on hand to congrat ulate their comrade, and their sweetest airs were played in his honor. To the congatulations of John's many friends we add those of the CHIEF. We trust he may live to a green old age and attain increased happiness and prosperity with each succeeding birthday. ANSUAL ELECTION OF "TIIE HLOOKS." -The meeting of Ascension Hook and Ladder Company No. 1, at which officers are chosen for the ensuing year, was held at the Truck-House last Monday evening and the following were the olffi cers elected : President-L. E. Bentley, Vice President-C. Kline, Recording Secretary- -David Israel, Financial Secretary-Jacob Blum. Treasurer-Sylvan Tobias, Foreman-R. J. Green, First Assistant-Baptiste Walker, Second Assistant-Thos. Cook, Warden-Jno. P. Forcha, Marshal-Camille Mollere. All officers save the Foreman, Sec ond Assistant and Warden, were re-elec ted, and the choice was unanimous in all cases excepting two. Our popular friend Mr. Green was transferred from Warden to the important post of Foreman by a flattering majority, and he has found a worthy successor as Warden in the per son of Mr. Forcha. Altogether the selec tion of officers is an admirable one-it being understood that, through motives of modesty, we except the presidency. Thirty-one members were in attendance, attesting the lively interest they feel in the welfare of their excellent and useful organization. The company has been in existence six years, and never have its membership or morale been mote satis factory than at the present time. Like wine, it seems to improve with age. May it so continue, time out of mind. The Sunday Law. The Question of the Hour-Confliet of Jurisdiction between the Poleie Jury and Town Council-How the Sun day Law works Elsewhere. The paramount subject of discussion in this vicinity is the "Sunday law', adopted by the Police Jury, requiring stores and places of business in this par ish to be closed on the Sabbath, with ex ceptions in favor of hotels, restaurants, ice cream saloons, barber shops, livery stables, etc.; and naturally tihe feature of the new law which attracts most at tention and opposition in Donaldsonville, is the clause extending the operations of the ordinance over the corporate limits of the town. Although the power of Police Juries to enact such ordininances and to make them apply to the incorpor ated towns and villages of the various parishes as well as the remaining por tions of their territorial jurisdiction, is expressly conferred by State law, and although this law has been affirmed by a decision of the Supreme Court, a number of the merchants and liquor dealers of Donahlsonville are determined to resist the enforcement of the ordinance by legal process. To this end a subscription list is being circulated, and we hear that about four-fifths of the $500 required to employ counsel to represent the resisters has been subscribed. As the the ordi nance is to take effect from and after the 15th instant, proceedings in the proposed litigation will soon be inaugurated. The Town Council has become in volved in the matter, and we observe that members of this body are among the most active opponents of the ordi nance. At the last meeting of the Coun cil, on the 4th inst., a petition from busi ness men of the town was received ask ing the Council to secure the exemption of Donaldsonville from tile operations of the Sunday law. The Council accord ingly adopted resolutions requesting the Police Jury to make the desired amend ment to the ordinance, and a committee was alppointed to present the memorial Accordingly, at the session of the Police Jury held last Tuesday the committee was on hand and the communnication for the Council was presented and read and summarily laid on the table. Then, in view of the apparent and notorious dis position manifested by interested parties in Donaldsonville to resist the Sunday ordinance, the Jury decided to re-enact the suspended ordinance imposing a par ish license tax upon all persons pursuing taxable occupations within the limits of the town. Thus, both sides seem deter mined to " carry the war into Africa," and the prospect is that the contest will continue until a decision on the matter in dispute is rendered by the court of last resort. Members of the Town Council think that the respectful application to the Police Jury -was treated with flagrant contumely and disrespect, and they feel disposed to resent such treatment by aiding and abetting the opposition to the Sunday ordinalcee,. We agree that our parish legislatort should have dis played less curtness and more courtesy towards their confreres of the Council, and should at least have accorded the me morial and its bearers the common re spect of an acknowledgment and re sponse; and we think that the Police Jury ought to have sought, and should still seek, the co-operation of the Coun cil in enforcing the Sunday law, but we can not admit that any want of consid eration or courtesy on the part of the Jury will justify the Council in opposing a measure that is calculated to benefit the town and its people. The opponents of the law vigorously contest the idea that it will benefit the town. They hold, on thecontrary, that it will cripple our business interests by driving trade to neighboring parishes where no similar law is in force, and that the patronage which our stores re ceive on Sundays will be almost wholly lost. The fallacy of these views can only be successfully eradicated by prac tical demonstration, and while we can cite the experience of other communities against them, we can not hope to fully convince the skeptical dissenters of their error until the opporttuity is given to point out the results of an experiment made under their very eyes. The same objections have been urged to the enforce ment of Sunday laws in other coummuni ties, and we have yet to learn of an in stance where they have been verified; while proof to the contrary is abundant. It is simply idle to assume that the peo ple will wear less clothing, consume less groceries and provisions, or buy less fur niture, crockery, etc., because they are debarred from purchasing them on Sun day. Those who have been in the habit of making their purchases Sunday will transfer that business to Saturday and soon learn to like the change; and so long as our merchants display their usual splendid stocks and offer the induce ments to customers which have made them successful in business heretofore, they need have no fear of buyers forsak ing the attractions of a town for the blessed privilege of visiting cross-roads stores in neighboring parishes on Sun days. No doubt such establishments will be the resort, as they usually are, of the class of people who habitually spend their Sundays drinking, carousing and gambling, but the few recruits of this kind which they would receive from our parish could well be spared and the loss of the small amount of money they spend would be more than compensated for by the moral effect of their absence and the saving to the people of a large propor tion of the public funds raised by taxa tion to meet the expenses growing out of Sunday brawls, assaults, woundings and murders. An eminent di vine of well known liber al views recently said "Men have warred about theology, but never about morali ty." We advocate the Sunday law on purely mioral grounds, and by no means from a religious standpoint. Sunday is a day upon which, by the edict of popu Oar custom and observance, the laborer lays down his implements of toil, the planter and professional man abandon their daily pnrsuits,and even the beasts of burden are given a respite from their labors. Why, then, should oar mer chants deny to themselves and their em ployees the one day of rest and recrea tion out of the seven which is, we may say, demanded by the law of nature for the preservation of bodily health and the cultivation of those social relations which serve to foster and increase the virtues, prosperity and happiness of a people f We want no restriction place upon healthful and rational Sunday amuse ments; on the contrary, they should be encouraged and multiplied, and we de sire the merchant and clerk to have the same opportunity to enjoy them that is afforded to others. But we do want a stop put to the crying evils of public gambling and dram drinking on Sundays that scandalize the good name of our town and parish and afford a pernicious and corrupting example to the rising generation. We doubt if there is another town in the State where gambling is carried on so openly and to such an ex tent as in Donaldsonville, and we con tend that that supreme law, " the welfare of the people," demands an abrogation of the practice. The existence of this vice in our midst is a wrong which the CHIEF, in commorn with the public auth orities, has too long condoned in the hope that time and the force of popular senti ment would of themselves bring about a reformation. Now that the question of Sunday closing has been broached we direct special attention to the good that will ensue from the closing of liquor sa loons and gambling houses on a day when a large majority of the people are idle and more than usually liable to yield to the temptations held out by such places. Even should the enforcement of the Police Jury's Sunday ordinance in Don aldsonville be successfully opposed, we shall hold it to be the duty of the Town Council to employ its authority to sup press the evils we have mentioned. The discussion of the Sunday law shall be continued in future issues of the CHIEF. We conclude for the present by calling attention to the admirable arti cle on our first page entitled " Sunday Law in St. Landry," and also to the fol lowing siguificant extract from the latest issue of the West Baton Rouge Sugar Planter : The Police Jury of the parish of Ascen sion has passed a Sunday law somewhat similar to ours. The ordinance will go into effect from and after the 15th inst. The Donaldsonville CHIEF approves of the law and promises its heartiest sup port unless it can be shown, by experi ence, that it is detrimental to the inter ests of the town and parish, in which case it will urge its repeal. Don't be alarmed, friend Bentley. After ihe law has had a fair trial it never will be re pealed. This parish would not repeal its Sunday law under any consideration whatever, foir the simple reason that no one wants it repealed, black or white. It is a permanent fixture now.
