The sugar plariters who lmave sever
Ted their connection with the Demo
cratic party to afiilitite with the Re
publican party, have commjitted more
than a mistake - it is a crime. There
is no probability that the sugar inter
"est will be benefitted by suih 'action,
whilst the evils whiith will attend the
introduction of the negro in politics
will be certain and ruinous to all in
terests. The people of Louisiana
know too well from <experience, that
their welfare depends upon the as
,cendency of the Democratic party,
State and Natiomil. 0
Now, suppose in the-course of time.
these renegade sugar planters shou!d
succeed in assisting the Republican
party to gain control of the gover
ment, what would be the result? In
'evitably, a force bill and negro `ad
scallawag rule, and the destruction of
our civilization and prosperity. The
fearful ordeal through which we pass
ed some years ago, should be forever
remembered. The people -of Louis
;ana have not forgotten the long,
bitter and desperate struggle'for white
supremacy and good government.
Would these sugar planters revive
the dark methods of reconstruction,
in the sole and selfish expectation of
making a little more money?

State Boatrd of 1*Iedieal Exam
With Dr. T. S. Kennedy as presi
dent. Dr. '1. Y. Aby as vice-president
and Dr. H. S. Coeram as secretary,
the organization of the State Board of
Medical Examiners (allopathic) of
Louisiana has been completed and
one of the fir~t official acts of the
Board is conveyed in the following
circular letter recently addressed to
the registered physicians in the state:
Dear Doctor:
At thenmeeting of the State Medi
cal Board of Examiners. held at .L'ew
Orleans, Aug. 31st, '94 a resolution
was passed requesting all registered
physicians to co-operate with the
Board in enforcing Act forty-nine (49),
passed at the session of the Legisla
This law requires all persons not
possessing the legal qualifications to
practice medicine under State Laws
prior to the passage of Act 49, to pre

can legally practice medicine in the

The Board also deems it advisable
to call especial attention to the sec

the necessity of their immediate regis

The Need of Good Roads.
Theeis :a growing demand all over
3 the country for better public toads, .
and even our own State, which gen
erally evinces such little intevest in
the matter, is in some quarters . be
f ginning to awaken to the necessity for
improvement. Nothing is of greater
benefit to a country than good public
high ways. They afford the farmer an
e outlet to market for his crops and
produce. Good roads reduce the cost
q of his transportation to a minimum,
n while bad roads make it one of his
ir heaviest expenses. The; farmer who
d opposesa road tax under proper re
'. strictionsunwittingly votes upon him
self a burden heavier than, all his
y State, parochial and municipal taxes.
y Good roads are a necessity in every.
country, but no where are-they more
e needed than in Louisiana, and we
t- know of no other country where they
can be nearly'io cheaply manstrueted.
e Appreciating this fact the SoGNAL
al hs been an ardent advocate of better
toads for yearapast. But while this
fn warfare his been void of any material
i. results, we believe our. people .are
a- awaking to the necessity for better
Id public roads and are beginning to re
alize that "tbe cannot be obtained
l tnder the present system of road
working. We find many a citizen who
ltseasen voted -against the special

Emigration to theoSouth.
As we have already noticed, good
work is being done in the North
west just now in the interest of emi
gration to the South. It is our best
field to-day. There is little'European
emigration to this country; indeed,
more people are leaving the United
States than are coming here, and it
is useless, therefore, to bid for this
immigration, but in the great North
west there are thousands of persons
discontended with present conditions
and anxious to move elsewhere. And
the South offers them the very home
they are looking for.
Under such circumstances it is evi
dently in that section that we must
agitate if we with to turn the tide of
immigration Southward. The papers
there are doing good work by laying
before their home people the resources
and advantages of the South. We
have already noted, their favorable
mention of this section. Here is one
from the New Hampton Times, of
Iowa, taken up with singing the
praises of Alabama, Western Ken
tucky and Western Tennessee in
advertisements and long articles
which seem to have been the joint
product of the Louisville and Nash
ville Railroad and the Birmingham
Commercial Club. A representative
of the railroad is in Iowa working up
another home seekers' excursion to
the South. He is accompanied by the
Alabama Commissioners of Agricul
ture, and is co-operating with other
railroads. The excursionists are to be
carried at one fare for the round trip,
wild they are supplied in advance with
ample information about the value
of lands and the possibilities of agri
culture. The newspaper mentioned
contains an article of one and a
quarter columns on "West Tennessee
and Kentucky," another of nearly
a page on "Southern Truck Farms
and Farming," and about two columns
of other matter on similar topics.
Other Iowa papers have contained
very -similar articles on Louisiana,
the Illinois Ceatraiand SoutberinPaei
fid co-operating to bring to the atten
tion of the Iowa farmers the advanta
ges of this State,and having done so
with great, success. The Louisville and
Nashville is now at work, it will be
seen, in the same section in the interest,
of Kentucky, Tennessee and Alabama
and other States it tralverses.
Here is practical work that will
yield good fruit. We of Louisiana
can bear testimony to it, for we have
seen the prairies of Southwest Louisi
ana blossom as a rose in consequence
of the settlement there of =the Iowa
colonists. If all the railroads will
follow the same course as the Illinois
Central, Southern Pacific, Louisville
and Nashville, and some. other lines
that have interested themselves in
immigration, thd problem we have
been so long pottering over, and which
we have held so many conventions
to consider, will be solved in a most
practical and successful manner. It
was in this way, through the agendy
of its railroads, that the West secured
most of its colonists. The South can
do the same to-day if all its roads will
interest themselves in immigration;
as those we mention havedone.-Times
