CUION'S RULING a In Reference to the Insurance ' Agency License. , RECEIVES A REIARKABLE LETTER e Sheriff of Sabine Parish is Recipient Of Queer Epistle in Answer to a Query About a Fugitive From Justice. ii -- -- t. Attorney General Gulon has given t' ruling to the Insurance Department I: on the subject of agency license. which will have the effect of revolu-, tionizing the method existing in New Orleans and other large cities of the n State in the transaction of insurance W business. The qpestion submitted by the De- i partment were: F "First-Whether every person who solicits insurance, whether as the regular agent of an insurance company or as the representative or i employe of such agent, should hold a certificate from your office in or- o der to solicit such a certificate is re- s quirel, each person soliciting insur ance should hold a seperate or indi vidual agent's certificate for such com 3 pany writing the Insurance on the business procured by him." The ruling follows; h "In reply, I beg to state that such a person, soliciting insurance, whether'o the agent of an insurance company , 'or the representative or employe of a such agent, should hold a certificate o from your office for such company t, for which business is solicited, and p that the certificate issued to such o general agent is not authority for o any of its representatives or employ- c es to solicit insurance unless such t person has himself a certificate of o authority from your office." c The effect of this ruling will be e that every fire insurance solicitor ep- b gaged in the business must have a t certificate of authority for every corn b pany issuing policies on the business j he procures. r Received a Remarkable Letter. Some days ago Sheriff T. J. Cran- 3 ford, of Sabine Parish, wrote a let' ter to the Chief of Boley, Okla., re- a questing him to arrest a negro who , is a fugitive from justice from this , parish, being wanted here on a charge of striking with intent to kill. e The Sheriff, in his letter gave a des- r cription of the fugitive, stated the t nature of his crime and offered to t pay any expenses necessary. In re-it ply, Sheriff Cranford received the fol' lowing letter which is published ver- b batim: Boley, Okla., 2-20-1909. C Mr. T. J. Cranford, t Many La. 1 Sir: this is in response to your let- I Ster asking for (name). I will say in reply that I havent seen your man? ' but must say I harty congratulate the boy if he had nerve to strike a man s in La.. and get away. He has scap- t ed hell as I consider La., to be. It suppose he struck a white man. He F has' only played the part of a man. t I wish more negroes in your land who I would stand up for the write and c protect his rights. Now Boley is a town of 2,000 and all negroes so if c he has reached this land he is forever v free s W. C. PERSON. e Gets Two Years For Killing. McCoy Parker a negro youth, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the Ninth District Court at Tallulah be- ' fore Judge F. X. Ranadell, and was sentenced to two years in the Peni- i tentiary. Parker and another negro a youth, George Walker, became engag t e/d in a boxing match on a near-by I plantation several weeks ago, and I when Walker began getting the best of his opponent the latter drew a knife and drove it to the hilt in Wal- I ker's brain, the blade entering the skull Just above his,right eye. A nall-puller had to be used to remove the knife, as the strongest pulls by hand would not budge it. The boy lived for three days after his brain .was pierced, and was to all appear ance going to get well, when he sud Sdenly dropped dead on the third day. Preparations have began for the Stkte Teachers' Association meet in;, which will be held in Alexand-! ris April 1. 2. and 3. Teachers are now being urged to make their pre paration to 1gtead the Alexandria meeting, as every efort will be made1 to have this gathering of the teachers a record-breaker in point of attend ance. The final programme for the meeting will be issued in the next few weeks. The Programme Com mittee has been able to secure the services of several distinguished edu cators for the meeting. Slight Wreck in Yards. While the eastbound freight train was switching in the yards at Jen nings a jam occurred with resulted in wrecking one car and damaging two others. No one was injured and there was no damage to freight. On ly one car is a total loss. Charged With Bobbing Box Cars. Monroe Davis and Tom Hamilton, negroes, accused of box car thefts, were arrested south of Port Hudson, after a !ively chase by Deputy Sher Iff E. O. Mahoney and Operator C. E. Barthel. The negroes are alleged to have entered box cars on the Louisiana Railway and Navigation Company north of Baton Rouge and stole several hundred dollars worth of merchandise. Both negroes have served terms in the state prison. SHOT FROM AMBUSH. Manager of Morris Preserve Assas sinated in Tangipahoa Parish. Tangipahoa's love for human blood has claimed another victim. It is a peaceful old man, some 63 years old, well on the wintry side of life. 1 who is this time struck down by the assassin's bullet. Chas. L. Jordan, overseer and manager of the celebra ted 'Mount Hennen, the Morris game preserve, lies in his grave, innocent of wrong-doing, a martyr to law and order. Allen Lagrue, against whom circumstantial evidence, but no posi tive proof, has as yet been obtained, occupies a cell in the Amite Jail, charged with the murder. It is the eighteenth crime in which life has been lost within the past year's his tory of th parish. Shot in the back by a desperado Wednesday afternoon Jordan sank to the ground on the roadway, three-quarters of a mile back of the Morris home, dying al most instantly. It was not until 11: 30 o'clock that night that his body was found in a pool of blood. No one saw the killing, or knows who did it. but Lagrue was seen in the neighborhood not more than two hours before the time when the Low er people, living nearby, heard the report of a gun that must have been the one which ended the existence of the overseer. Sheriff John Saal, therefore seized Lagrue. That he. is strongly of the belief that the pris oner is the guilty man is indicated by the fact that the Sheriff has not endeavored to make further arrests, but confined his entire time to deve loping the case against the man now in custody. Fair Directors Plan for Next Display. The board of directors of the Ac adia Parish Fair held a meeting for the purpose of discussing plan for the Parish Fair this fall.

There were six bidders for the contract, and the work was awarded to the firm of Gaily and Clark, of Alexandria, who were the lowest bidder.
