Col. James Lewis, one of the ablest

colored men <df lEis state, has been
iUipjn oia ot 6 nof U. S.
Naval officer at-New Orleans, and
Hoen. Andrew J. Dumont, chairman of
the Republican State committee ap
pointed by Gov. Warmoth, is desig
ndtedtto fill the vacancy. The only
known reason for the removal of Col.
Lewis is his consistent and manly
support of Gen. Giant for presidential
nominee at Chicago. Any one faimil
iar with the sentiments of the the Re
publican masses of this State knows
that Col. Lewis represented them
faithfully, and his removal for this
cause will not be likely to allay in
any degree the disappointment they
feel over the result of the national
convention. If a crusade is to be
opened against the Republican lead
ers who hald the manhood to stand up
for the people without regard to the
behests of the office holders, the sem
blance of a Republican organization
may as well be abandoned, for it will
be nothing but a hollow mockery and
frand.
Hon. Wvn. O. Rogers, Superinten
dent of the Public Schools of New
Orleans, tendered his resignation to
the Acting Governor, leut was subse
lquently iuduced to withdraw it. The
unsatisfactory condition of the .work
under his direction, arising from the
totally inadequate revenues availa
ble for the maintenance of the
sclhools, discouraged Mr. Rogers and
led to his desire to retire from the
position he has filled so long and so
efficiently. The ni fortunate state of
affairs surrounding the system of pub
lic education in New Orleans is in no
wise due to any dereliction on the
part of the worthy Superintendent,
and we are glad to know that ihe
has been prevailed upon to reconsider
his resignation.

The return of Distrlet Attorney Ear
hart from St. James, -where. the ession
of District Court closed last Saturday,
has been the signal for a continuation,
in a new forme of proceedings,.against
the-keepers of stores and otliea places of
gablie ispaned .e
contravention of the Police Jury's Sun
day ordinance, and for the commence
ment of a crusade against the public
gambling antdtippling houses that have
too long disgraced the town of Donald
sonville. We can not better describe
the nature of these proceedings than by
reprodnecing in full the following official
communication transmitted by the Dis
trict Attorney tO Justice Dennis Butler
of this ward:
OFFICE OF DISTRICT ATTORNEY,
22nd Judicial District,
Donaldsonville, La., July 13, 1880
lHon. Dennis Butler, Justice of the Peace,
4th ward, parish of Ascension, La.:
Sir-Having been informed that a
banking game, to-wit: keno, was carried
on in the town of Donaldsonville, in this
parish, on last Sunday, the 11th day of
July, 1880, in the building situated at
the corner of Mississippi and Lessard
streets, in said town, all in violation of
Act No. 12, General Assembly of Louis
iana, approved February 6, 1870, amend
ing Sections 911, 913 and 914 Revised
Statutes of the State of Louisiana, and
whereas it is made my duty as District
Attorney, under the provisions of Section
2066 of the said Revised Statutes, where
no complaint or declaration thereof has
been made before any Judge or Justice
of the Peace, to inquire cx-ofeli into the
fact by causing all persons who are sup
posed to have some knowledge of the fact
to be summoned before any Judge or
Justice of the Peace, that, their deposi
tions may be taken, I, therefore, in my
said otficial capacity request that you
immediately cause to be sumuoned bie
fore you, the following persons and, such
others as you may know of, in order that
their depositions mllly be taken as to their
knowledge of the keeping of the said
banking game and banking house in the
said town of Donaldsonville, parish afore
said, being particular to obtain the names
of all persons who keep said game or
banking house, and also all persons who
aid and assist in keeping the same. The
names of witnesses so far obtained are
Messrs. P. Pedesclaux, Elphege Mire, E.
F. Lamdry and Armand Bethancourt.
In the event that the depositions of these
witnesses dischlse the fact that such a
game has been carried on in said town it
will be your duty on such oath or other
affidavit to issue your warrant, so that
the Constable or Sheriff, or Dy. Sheriff
shall cause the arrest of all persons keep
ing and assisting in keeping said game,
and also a sufficient authority for said
officer nmaking said arrest to take into
his possession and keeping all the tables,
money, implements and other parapher
nalia which may be used in keeping said
game, so that the same shall be delivered
to you for inventory. The said property
so seized and inventoried to be kept by
the proper officer, so that in the event of
conviction of said parties, the same shall
be sold for the benefit of the parish, as
tihe law provides that the same is for
feited on the conviction of the parties,
for the use of the parish.
I am also informed that the following
misdemeanor, to-wit: violating Ordi
nances Nos. 9 an:d 10, known as the Sun
day law of the parish of Asceusion, has
Ieen committed bIy the persons whose
names are hereto annexed, on Sunday,
the 4th of July, 1880, and tie 11th day
of July, 1880. It is made my duty under
said Section 2066, Revised Statutes, to
cause all persons supposed to have kinowl
egIe or Tile COurlllssoill o0 sa i1 mistlo
mneanor to be summoned before a Judge
or Justice of the Peace, so that their
depositions may be taken. The annexed
list are the persons you will cause to be
summoned before you for that purpose,
and your will please take their deposi
tions at as early a day as possible, so that
I can use them either to file informations
against the said persons who, I am in
formed, committed said misdemeanor, at
the next regular term of the 22nd Judi
cial District Court in this parish, or for
the use of the Grand Jury at the regular
term of said Court. I am also informed
that " tippling" and "gaming" houses
are being kept in the town of Donald
sonville in violation of Section 908 of the
Revised Statutes of the State of Louis
iana. As yet I can not furnish the names
of persons to be summoned before yon
under Section 2066, but you will ascer
tain through your Constable or the Sher
itf, the names of their bar-tenders and
other persons who visit said houses, take
their depositions so that the District At
torney or Grand Jury can act in the
premises. Trusting that you will ren
der all assistance to the State of Louis
iana to suppress the vice of gamblinog in
the town of Doinaldsoaville, and the vio
lation of Ordinance Nos. 9 and 10, known
as the Sunday law of the parish of As
cension, I subscribe myself, your obdt.
serv't,
F. B. EARHART,
Dist. Atty. 22nd Jnd. Dist., La.
In accordance with the instriuctions of
the District Attorney a number of the
clerks and employees of the stores and
places of business that were kept open
on the Sundays above referred to, have
been summnoned before Justice Butler
and their depositions takeu. Evidence
has also been adduced with regard to
the conduct of public gambling houses
in Donaldsonville, and immediate steps
will be taken to suppress the unlawful
business.
Act No. 12 of 1870 provides that
" Whoever shall keep a banking game
or banking house at which money or
any thing representing money, is bet or
hazarded, or shall aid or assist in keep
ing one, shall, on conviction of first of
funse, be fined not less than $1000 or
more than $5000, and on conviction of
second offense, not less than $5000 nor
more than. $10,000, and be imprisoned at
hard labor not less than one nor more
than five years."
Section 4 of the same act declares it to
be the duty of any public officer to ar
rest and take into his custody any per
son keeping any banking game or aiding
and assisting in keeping same, together
with all tables, money or representations
of money, implements and other para
phernalia that is used in keeping such
banking house or in playing such game.
On the conviction of the accused, the
property is to be sold for the benefit of
the parish. Section 6 defines the offense
of keeping a gambling house or playing
a banking game to be a crime and mis
demeanor.
Section 908 of the Revised Statutes de
clares that whoever shall be guilty of
keeping any disorderly tippling house or
gaining house shall suffer fine and im
prisonnlent at the discretion of the court,
and be further condetaned to forfeit his
iicenseFto ]*p a tuse of public resort'
or entertainsment..
It will be seenitherefore, that intthe.
course -e is taking, the District Attorney.
is sustained by the plain letter of the
law-in fact, that he is merely perform
ing his sworn duty as a public .officer,
and every official who does this is enti
tled to the sympathy, countenance and
co-operation of all law,$biding citizens.
We are glad to, learn that there is
qinite a geintM FdiAeii tion anmoiig ruer
ohants who have heretofore opposed the
Sunday law, to acquiesce in its require
ments until a decision' of the contro
versy is reached in the courts. We hope
this report will prove true and that all
the places of business in Donaldsonville
.coming within the provisions of the or
dinance will be closed on Sundays. This
will give the practical test of the matter
for which the Cnaiti has contended, and
by which it proposes to regulate its fn
ture attitude upon the Sunday closing
question. Our motto is pro bono publico
-we seek the accomplishment of the
greatest good to the greatest number,
and it is far from our desire or intention
-to advocate any measure that will prove
hurtful or oppressive to the interests of
Donaldsonville, and particularly to the
merchants and business men s hose capi
tal, enterprise and public spirit form
such a large factor in the progress and
improvement of our town. If we differ
with them upon a subject in which they
have such deep concern as they have
shown in the Sunday law, it is because
we think they are mistaken in believing
that the operations of the law will in
junre then. If the result of experience
should prove us wrong, we shall ac
knowledge our error and exert the in
fiuence of the CIEs' to have the injuri
ous law so modified as to remove objec
tionable features. We ask our nmerchants
to be equally open to conviction and to
afford an opportunity for the issue to be
settled by the only test that will satisfy
the minds of all concerned-that of a
practical experiment.

Mr. Jackson moved to lay that motion

Secretary.
On Friday the 25th inst., Justice J. B.
Friedman, of the 4th ward of this parish,
sitting as committing magistrate, exam
ined sixteen persons charged with gam
bling on the front galleries of the stores
at Boutte Station, resulting in the com
nitting of three of them to the District
Court.-St. Charles Herald.
This evil of public gambling at and
around country stores prevailed to a
great extent in Ascension until the
Sunday law was enacted, but the en
forcement of this law has abrogated
the nuisai.ce. Donaldsonville is the
only portion of our parish now cnrsed
with the abomination, and its sup
pression here is one-of the things -we
expect to see accomplished in the
near future.
THE SUNDAY LAW!

aldsonville, Ascension and adjoining parishes
