again doing democratic missionary

the same means of persuasion. On the

The Maine Election.
The largest vote cast in the state
since 1888 was deposited in the Maine
ballot boxes last Monday, and the re
publicans landed their governor by a
majority of 27,130, besides electing all
the members of congress and a large
majority of both branches of the leg
islature, thus assuring the continued
representation of the state in the
United States senate by a republican
-either Senator Eugene E. Hale or
some other man of like political status
The only grain of comfort our dem
ocratic friends can extract from the
results of Monday's contest in the
Pine-tree state is that the republican
gains were not as large as theirs, and
that the republican majority falls short
of the big one by which the state was
carried in 1900-the great "McKinley
year"-when the republican candidate
for governor of Maine received 33,384
more votes than his democratic com
petitor. There was no claim or expec
tation on the part of the Maine repub
licans that they would equal or even
approximate the results of that phe
nomenal year. The chairman of their
state committee announced just before
the election that they would be satis
lied with a majority of 10,000 to 15,000,
hence there would seem to be every
reason why they should be not only
contented, but immensely tickled with

would barely turn the scale in In
diana, and he must be an exceedingly
enthusiastic and bias-eyed democrat
who can see any hope of the success of
his party in November if the republi
cans are going to carry New York and
New Jersey. The republicans can lose
New York and several other states
which McKinley carried, and still win,
but the electoral vote o'f New York is
absolutely essential to a democratic
victory. It is a clear proposition,
therefore, that the opposition must
materially improve upon the gains
made in Maine, else their hopes of

Two years ago the republican ma
jority for governor in Maine was

a substantial republican gain, and
strengthens the conviction of The Chief
that the success of the national repub

A Belligerent Crowd.
A Belligerent Crowd.
A clever and amusing editorial ap
peared in Tuesday's issue of the New
Orleans Times-Democrat under the
caption, "President Parker's Cabinet,"
prompted by a Washington corres
pondent's forcast of the men Judge
Parker will probably seleet as his
cabinet in the improbable event of his
election to the presidency. Four of
the prospective appointees are David
B. Hill, of New York, for secretary of
state; Wm. J. Bryan, of Nebraska,
for secretary of war; August Belmont,
of New York, for secretary of the
treasury, and Benjamin R. Tillman,
of South Carolina, for secretary of
agriculture. Concerning this strenu
ous, pyrotechnical and belligerent
quartet, the Times-Democrat says:
Now it is probable that when the chief of
police of Washington wakes up soon after the
inauguration and reads this list of cabinet ap
pointments he will at once call out the reserves.
for the presence of Hill, Bryan, Belmont and
Tillman in the same cabinet is a declaration of
war on the part of the president-civil war of
the most bitter type. Such a cabinet would
doubtless sit in uniform and its members would
be arned "to the teeth." There would be
shooting at the first cabinet meeting arid the
air would he be blue with "langeaio." Major (now
governor) Valllanau, of Mississippi, is slated
for the position of postmaster general, either
for the purpose of strengthenning the Bryan
Tillman forces, or of selecting names for post
oflices and of getting even with the Rongh
Rider for a recent decision of the postofllice
The Times-Democrat's facetious
treatment of this interesting subject
suggests the familiar saying that
"There's many a true word spoken in
jest." Conceding for the sake of argu
ment that Judge Parker should become
president, what is more natural than
that he would choose his cabinet from
among the foremost leaders of his
party, to whom he would be princi
pally indebted for his success? The
five gentlemen mentioned in the fore
going paragraph are certaicly con
spicuous figures on the roster of dem
ocratic leaders, and they and their
friends would have a right to expect
that from such material the cabinet of
the incoming chief executive would be
composed, hence it is by no means un
reasonable to presume that these very
five would be summoned by President
Parker to act as his counselors and
coadjutors in conducting the affairs of
the national government.
That they are such a picturesque, in
harmonious and belligerent crowd is
a striking illustration of the conglom
erate and incongriuus element repre
sented in the complosition of the pre
sent-day democratic party, and also
ta object lesson to the voters of the
country demonstrating the unwisdom
of intrusting such a party with power.
"Not Looking for Suckers."
A prominent New Orleans republi
can made the offer to a party of demo
cratic friends in that city last Thurs
day to bet $1000 to $600 on the election
of Roosevelt ana Fairbanks.
The reply he got was, "There are no
suckers in this crowd."
tie then offered to increase the odds
and make the bet $1000 to $00 if his
friends would find someone willing to I
take it up.
The response to this was, "We're >
not looking for suckers, either."''
Heavy odds are being laid in all the L
betting centres on the republican can
didates, and democratic money is
scarce. If any of The Chief's friends
are deluded with the belief that Parker
and Davis can be elected and are will
ing to back their judgment with coin
of the realm, many attractive oppor- n

DEMOCRATS LOSE GROUND.
Bad Management in New York Hurls Cam.
paign and Parkeris Appealed to
to Reorganize Things.
Under the above caption the Nerw
Orleans Daily States, an obdurately
_ democratic newspaper, prints the fql
1 lowing dispatch from New York in its
issue of Sept. 10:
The sudden activity of the demo
cratic managers and the appeal to
Judge Parker to come to New York
to rally the fight is due to the criti
cisms of the New York papers which
took the Parker side, to Mr. Pulitzer's
letter to the editors, to the organiza
tion of the party in the state, to the
Vermont result and particularly to the
I somewhat sensational editorial in
t Thursday's New York Times, which
has been the special champion of
"The only certain and safe inference
from the 32,000 republican plurality in
Vermont is that Roosevelt electors will
be chosen in that state on Nov. 8. The
conclusion that the September election
in Vermont makes sure the election of
Roosevelt and Fairbanks in Novem
ber would not be warranted either by
human experience or human reason.
If everybody came to that conclusion
at once, of course both party commit
tees would close their headquarters
and stop spending money, the demo
crats because further efforts would be
hopeless, the republicans because it
would be superfluous. Forty-four other
states will vote for presidential elec
tors in November.
"At the same time the gentlemen at
the democratic headquarters up town
would show themselves to be pretty
p r observers of political signs and
p ,. euts if they did not accept the re
s.aL in Vermont as proof that their
campaign thus far has made little im
pression upon the voters whose support
they must have if they are to win. Ver
mont is obdurately republican, but its
electorate has shown in the past that
it was sensitive to impending political
changes. The rather unusual republi
can plurality this year means not that
the Green Mountain State voters are
insensitive, but that no marked im
pression has been made upon them by
the democratic candidate and cam
paign. If the gentlemen at headquarters
will get out among the people of this
community they will probably hear
from all sorts and conditions of men
in the street and elsewhere the almost
universal opinion that they are mak
ing a losing fight. They will be told
that Judge Parker's campaign reached
high-water mark in the days following
the publication of the gold-standard
telegram; that the ebb then set in, and
that since his speech of acceptanee the
fall of the Parker tide has been visi
ble, and somewhat disquietingly rapid.
It is well that the campaign managers
should know these things. They are
too sensible to prize the comforts of
the fool's paradise above the manly
satisfaction of knowing where they
stand in the serious business in which
they are engaged.
"They should know then, for Ver
mont warns them of it, that they are
losing ground daily. * * *
The picture of a tranquil canvass
in which 15,000,000 freemen, all
philosophers, all highly enlightened,
all burning with the love of truth
and the hatred of error, might
sit down to study the principles and
professions of the rival parties, and,
undisturbed by the hoarse appeals of
the stump or the tumult of processions
with banners and bands, should with
calm deliberation make their choice
between the two candidates, is in
many ways delightful. But that is a
dream, a foolish imagining; there is
no such thing possible among men.
"* * * Plainly there is nothing
to be gained by keeping the "issue"
of the Philippines to the fore. To begin
with, it is not an issue; if it were, the
democrats would lose by agitating it.

Reports continue to be received of
serious injury to the cotton by cater

who has a track of 150 acres which is
farmed by tenants and from which he
expected to secure a bale to the
acre during the early part of the sea
son, states that he will consider him
self lucky if he gets twenty-five bales
from the entire tract, so great has
been the injury to the cotton by cater
pillars. The Lemann Company, which
have 1100 acres planted in cotton on
their various places in this section,
announce that their crop will be short
ened fully 50 per cent as a result of
the ravages of the caterpillar. On
their Dugas place, where some 250
acres were cultivated in cotton, the
pest has destroyed almost the entire
crop, leaving the stalks shorn of bolls
and leaves. Jos. Rateau states that
his tract of several hundred acres has
been attacked by the caterpillar and
completely ruined. From all parts of
the parish and surrounding country
come reports of a similar nature, with
varying estimates of the degree of
loss. Paris green is being used to
destroy the pest, but owing to the fact
that there was some delay in securing
the preparation in sufficient quantities
the caterpillars were enabled to make
considerable headway in their work of
destruction before an organized effort
could be made to exterminate them.

At The Play.
Owing to their failure to make rail
road connections the Boston Ideal
Opera Company, which was billed to
open Phoenix opera house Monday
night, did not reach Donaldsonville
until Tuesday, and the play they were
announced to put on, "The Bohemian
Girl," was changed to "La Mascotte, "
because the costumes for the former
production did not arrive in time for
the performance. A large audience
was present when the curtain went up
Tuesday night, and the attendance
would undoubtedly have been greater
had there not been so much uncer
tainty about the coming of the troupe.
"La Mascotte" has been seen here
3everal times before, but nevertheless
the way it was rendered by the Boston
Ideals was pleasing in the extreme and
gaveentire satisfaction to the audience.
The company, though small, is well
balanced and of good material, and
the two comedians, Leslie and Bur
gess, are top-notchers. Miss Foreman
is a pretty and attractive prima donna
who acts with much expression, al
though at times she is inclined to be
affected. The "Fiametta" of Miss
Shattuck is deserving of mention. The
cast Tuesday night was as follows:
"Pippo," E. L. Weston; "Bettina,"
Miss Jule Foreman; "Fiametta," Miss
Lillian Shattuck; "Prince Lorenzo,"
F. O. Burgess; "Rocco," Jack Leslie;
"Prince Frederick," Miss Myrtle
The Boston Ideals will play a re
turn engagement at Phoenix opera
house tonight, with "Girofle-Girofla"
as the bill. Owing to the fact that
most of the stores are kept open later
than usual on Saturday night, the
curtain will not go .up until 9:15
o'clock. "Giroflle-Girofla" is one of
the most tuneful and catchy of the
light operas, and it is safe to say that
it will be well presented by the Boston
Huntley's Savoy Theatre Company,
featuring the pretty and popular
emotional actress, Louise Carter,
will open a four-night engagement at
Phoenix opera house tomorrow night.
Last season this company made a de
cided hit in Donaldsonville under the
title of the Hnrrison-Adams Company,
and they have the same people in the
cast this year as last and several in
addition, a consolidation having been
effected with J. H. Huntley, the old
southern favorite, who owns and oper
ates a first-class theatre at Atlantic
City. The company carries eighteen
acting people, a carload of special
scenery, costumes and electrical ef
fects, and the finest line of plays ever
offered by a traveling stock organiza
tion. For the opening night "Woman
Against Woman" will be the bill;
Monday night, "Camille;" Tuesday
night, "Nell Gwynne;" Wednesday
matinee, "Inherited;" Wednesday
night, "Gypsy Jack." The prices are
15, 25, 35 and 50 cents, and tickets are
on sale at Comstock's. t

The Jewish Holidays. U
t Sunset Friday evening of last week
began Rosh Hashonah, the Jewish new
year 5665, and according to the usual
e custom of these people throughout the
r entire world they gathered in their
s synagogues and places of worship and
3 offered up thanks to God for the many
1 mercies and kindnesses extended to
3 them during the past year. The feast
is also termed "Yom Teruah"-a day
s for the sounding of the "shofar" or
y ram's horn-in consonance with the
idea that in olden times the Jewish peo
e ple were summoned from their labors
in this manner to prepare for holy
convocation, according to the divine
mandate, "In the seventh month, on
I the first day of the month, ye shall
have a rest, a memorial of sounding
the cornet, a holy convocation." The
services are always very impressive
and the day a most sacred one in the
s hearts of the Jewish people. It was
celebrated here with solemn ceremonies
at the synagogue Friday evening and
Saturday morning. Rosh Hashonah
ushers in a series of great religious
f festivals for the Hebrew race, Yom
Kippur, the day of atonement, occur
ing on the nineteenth, and the Feast
of Tabernacles from the twenty-third
to the thirtieth. Yom Kippur will be
celebrated by Bikur Cholim congrega
tion with appropriate services at 7
o'clock p. m. Snnday and 10 a. m.
Monday. Rabbi M. Klein officiating,
and the public is invited to attend. All
