Second Week of the Criminal Term-Grand
Jury Flids that Gross Irregularities
Were Committed at the Recent
Primary Election, but Re
turns no Indictments.
Sessions of district court were held

The grand jury handed in a third
partial report Tuesday afternoon-re
turning true bills against Geo. B. Den
ham for resisting an officer and Chas.
Kling, Jos. Netter and "Sweet Dick"
for robbery, and dismissing the
charges in the cases of Addison Hud
son, murder, and Casimir Lambert,
using loud language near a private
house-and the following day sub,
mitted its final report, the full text of
which is as follows:
The grand jurors empanelled at the
opening of this session of court beg
to make this their report:
We have examined a large number
of criminal cases upon which we have
This place needs considerable over
hauling; the plastering is in bad con
dition and needs immediate attention.
This condition has been referred to by
previous grand juries and steps should
be taken without delay to make the
needed repairs. The grounds around
the courthouse need cleaning and
clearing, and we would recommend
that trees and shrubs be planted there
in and the surroundings of the court
house thereby beautified, as this could
be, and would be, made one of the
most attractive squares in Donald
sonville. We must say that the inside
of the building is sadly neglected and
the janitor extremely negligent and
careless in keeping this, place in a
clean and orderly manner. The sani
tary closets are in an extremely bad
condition and no attention seems to
be paid to these. If something is not
done at once, the sanitary conditions
in the courthouse will be a source of
disease. We would urge upon those
who have control ever the janitor to
see that he performs his duties.
PARISH TREASURER'S OFFICE.
We have examined this office aged
found the books balanced up to Sep
tember 30, 1906. We would suggest
that a fire-proof vault be built for
this office in the small room on the
left-hand side of the entrance to the
This office is kept in a neat condi
tion and the books posted to date and
This office is well kept and the papers
The prisoners are well taken care
of, but the building needs cleaning,
particularly the floor in, the upper
story. The building should be painted
inside and outside.
We have gone through the Ascension
High School and the different depart
ments thereof and find the same well
conducted,. and under a corps of com
petent and industrious teachers. The
superintendent, Prof. Showalter, is
very active, punctual and painstaking
in the performance of his duties, and
in complying strictly with all the re
quirements of law. The principal of
this school, Prof. Rusca, we find to
be a hard worker and up to date, hav
ing the entire system well under hand.
We are proud to say that in a few
months we will have a magnificent
school building which will be a credit
to the town and parish, a comfort to
the children and a convenience to both
teachers and pupils.
EXAMINATION OF RESULTS OF
We have made a careful and com
plete examination of the ballot boxes,
tally sheets and lists of voters used
and kept in the last primary election
held in this parish on the 6th of Sep
tember, 1906, and are indeed sorry to
say that we found a great many irregu
larities in all of the boxes except five:
persons voting who were not qualified
voters. We are therefore compelled
to say that all of the charges of which
complaint was made to the district at
torney were fully supported, and even
more, as he had complaints of irregu
larities or frauds in only three boxes.
We believe, however, from the exam
ination of some of the commissioners
and other parties, there was no inten
tion to commit frauds, but that the
failure to comply strictly with the elec
tion laws and permitting illegal voting
was probably due to neeligence; and
because of these reasons we have failed
to indict any of the parties. It should
be impressed, however, upon all elec
tion officers that there is absolutely no
reason or necessity for the gross ir
regularities found, and it is hoped
that there will be no recurrence of any
such practices at any future election.
If there should be, every effort should
be made to impose the penalties of the
law upon those who are responsible to
the people for honest and pure elec
tions. We must commend the district
attorney for the stand taken by him,
and it is to be hoped that? all officers
whose duty is to see the enforcement
of the laws would be moved by the
same spirit and vigilance which he
has manifested in this matter, feeling
assured that if this is done, the vio
lation of all criminal statutes would
be considerably minimized.
We find the roads along the river in
fairly good condition and the road
contractors at work. The roads in the
seventh and eighth wards are now in
fairly good condition, but during the
rainy season a great many of the peo
ple and owners of land fronting these
roads check the drainage water and
in some places the checking of this
water results in the overflow of the
roads to the extent of preventing chil
dren from attending school. We would
urge the road boards of these two
wards to take such steps as may be
needed to procure the drainage neces
sary and needed for these roads.
We find that the ferry lessee is not
giving the service provided for under
his contract and we would suggest that
the city council and police jury take
necessary steps to provide a ans of
conveyance that would be s' 'o life
and property. The presenteoiareyance
for crossing the river is at times dan

Grand Opera Company in a presenta

to Donaldsonville directly from an
engagement at the French Opera House,
New Orleans, and is headed by those
two sweet-voiced prima donnas, Misses
Mollie Blanchard and Rose Sheldon, F
which fact is sufficient assurance that
the company is all it is claimed to be.

new playhouse will have out the f
"S.R.O." sign on its opening night.

four-act comedy "with a plot" and v
special scenery, will be the second at- i
traction at the new house, appearing tJ
Friday night at popular prices-25, 35 b
and 50 cents. The company, is made
up of star comedians whose sole busi- b
ness is to make one laugh, and among i,
the number is Clyde Long, who has a
been specially engaged to introduce
his latest specialty, "The Scarecrow e
Dance," from "The Wizard of Oz." d
Next Sunday night Coburn's Great .
Barlow Minstrels will be the attrac- a
tion, and as this is one of the best
minstrel companies on the road .there d
will no doubt be a large audience on c
hand to greet it on its first ap- r
pearance in Donaldsonville for c
many seasons. The prices will be 35, t
50, 75 cents and $1, and Mr. Coburn v
guarantees "your money's worth" or s
"your money back." That's fair. r
Gonzales Depot Controversy.
The suit of the Louisiana Railway 4
and Navigation Company versus the v
Louisiana Railroad Commission will c
be argued in the district court at a
Baton Rouge- next Friday, the 9th
inst., with Attorney General Walter =
Guion representing the railroad com- r
mission and Attorneys Laycock and 1
Beale, of Baton Rouge, the plaintiff c
company. The question involved is k
the right of the railroad commission
to change the location of the L. R.
and N. Company's depot at Gonzales,
a~nd the outcome of the suit will be a
awaited with general public interest c
Briefly, the facts in the case are1
these. The railroad company selected y
a site for its depot some dittance north a
of the village of Gonzales, alleging c
that at no other place in the neighbor- s
hood are grounds available for the ]
construction of the necessary side
tracks, "Y" tracks, etc. Some of the a
citizens of Gonzales favored this site, t
but others deemed it, inconvenient to
travelers, shippers and the public c
generally in that vicinity, and thought
the depot should be located nearer the a
business center of the community.
They accordingly presented a petition 1
to the railroad commission asking that
the site be changed. The commission, 2
after making an examination of the
premises, ordered the railroad corn
pany to locate its depot on the site
selected by the citizens, and the valid
ity of this order is now being attackedt
in the courts.

SCALDED TO DEATH.
Five Men and 7-Year-Old Girl Meet Ter
rible Death by Boiler Explo
sion near Vacherle.
As the result of a boiler explosion
at Widow H. Falgoust's Shell Hill
ractory, near Vacherie, Tuesday after
noon, four men and a 7-year-old girl
were scalded to death. It has been
impossible to ascertain what caused
he explosion, but it seems to have
been a defective plate in a drum, which
blew out, leaving a hole about 18
inches in circumference through which
a stream of boiling water and steam
escaped, plowing a trench three .feet
deep from the boiler to the sugarhouse
wall and deluging the victims who
were standing nearby. The house was
in full operation nt the time, but no
damage resulted to the machinery
other than that done in the boiler
room. As soon as the accident oc.
curred, the mill was stopped and the
unfortunates removed to a residence,
where they were attended by four phy
sicians who had been hastily sum
moned, but without avail, the fivedy
ing from their injuries within a few
hours. The dead are: Augustin Fal
goust, a son of the proprietress, who
was in charge of the mill; Alexander
Stein, aged 48 years; Charles Ockman,
aged 47 years; Stephanie Falgoust,
aged 7 years, and Joseph Martinez, a
negro. 'All of the white men were mar
ried, and Mr. Falgoust leaves, besides
his other relatives, a widow and five
children, while,Mr. Stein is survived
by his widow and seven children.

Thurdsay especially the various rest
ing places of the dead were bright
and sweet with fraicrant blossoms
brought by throngs of relatives and
friends who came to pay the dear
departed the tender tribute of remem

The One That Does the Work and
Saves the floney
I ANY PLANTERS during the past two seasons have bought cans loaders
of different makes, only to be disappointed with results; have worked
them a short time, laid them aside, and gone back to hand loading. This ex
perience makes it hard to sell loaders, even The Castagnos. which the judges
at Audubon Park, July 4, pronounced to have "great merit ;" but in cane load
ers, like everything else, merit, when accompanied by usefulness and great
money-saving power, will win In the long run. Notwithstanding former draw
backs we are selling loaders to many progressive discerning planters, who
realize that the days of freak and experimental cane loaders are over, and we
have at last got down to the real thing that will make hand loading a thing of
Our loader is not built by contract, but in our own shop at
Donaldsonville (Port Barrow), under the direct supervision
of J. B. Castagnos, the inventor, a practical mechanic. 3
Only the best material is used and the workmanship is of the kind that when
we sell a loader it will stay sold and be the means of selling more.
We furnish no blue prints nor give you days of work erecting our loaders; but
we erect and work them on your plantation, and guarantee them to load 125
tons of cane each daily in 20-ton cane. I
We invite all planters, managers and people interested to call at our shop sad
examine the construction of the Castagnos Loader, and we feel that after a
careful inspection we can convince you that we have the only loader one
that will pay you to buy even this short-crop season, and do away with and
