Thbleves Caught at Lafay.
ette and Brought to
tome time during last Friday
night the general: merchandise
store of Gammill & Co., in Guey
dan, w.sa entered by' thieves
and quite a large quantity of
goods stolen. The robbery., was.
not discovered until the store
was opened for business Satur
da~ morning,and, an examination
sh we~t fat tlpe thieves had forc
ed out one of.the panes of glass
in the office window, after trying
to pry open the sliding door back
in the warehouse. They carried
off several pairs of fine shoes,
rase shirts, socks,knives,razors,
cigars and tobacco,using a couple
of `sacks that had contained veg
etables to pack their.plunder in.
No trace could be found of the
robbers, bn t it .was thought to
have been the work of negroes
and the sheriffs of nearby parish
es were notified of the. theft.
*bdaky, Sheriff Lacaste of La
f~t~ e notified W. M. Haste that
he had' arrested a couple of young
negroes, giving their names as
Felix Coleman and James Smite,
who had most of the stolen goods
in their possession. They were
brought to Abbeville Tuesday
morning by:sheriff Boudreau and
one of his deputies and lodged in
jail. Coleman and Smith drop
ped into Gueydan only last week,
-clainigg to hail from New Or
leans, and in their talk with the
coon town people they claimed to
have an easy way of living. Near
ly $100 worth of goods was car
ried off by these thieves, but thq

Two games of baseball were
played here last Sunday between
the Abbeville Grays and the
Eagens, a team composed of
players from Crowley,Onelousas,
and other points. .The first
game was called at 2:45 p. m. and
was quite interesting, the score
being 11 to 5 in favor of the Grays.
The second game began at about
five o'clock and resulted in an
other victory for the Grays by a
score of 9 to 3. Several good
plays are credited to both teams
and the records show some errors
also. The two game on thewhole
were well worth seeing, although
the playersisere worn out and
very tired towards the end.
They showed grit by sticking o t
to the finish 'and' they were "cn
couraged by an unusuilly ilarge

both games. The. first took place
Thursday when they'administer

One of the most interesting
cases to appear before Judge
Schlesinger Was that of Delmas
Matte vs. Adam Rufhfn,both sons
of Africa. Last Thursday after
noon Delmas came to town and
appeared before the Third Ward
Justice Court to lodge complaint
against Adam for having disfig
ured him. Delmas was minus
the greater part of his lower lip
which he claimed was chewed off
by his adversary in a conflict
that took place Thursday morn
ing at Spring Hill "between the
two negrbes. Judge Schlesinger
took immediate action and in a
few hours Adam Ruffin was
lodged behind the bars without
bail to await trial by a higher
Pat Newson and Jos. Finley,
both colored, and claiming to be
nov residents of this state, were
also lodged in jail by Sheriff
Boudreau, to serve as material
witnesses in the above case.
Bill Harvesty, colored, held up
a peaceful assembly of nekroes
across the river, all by his lone
some, at two o'clock Sunday
morning, and Bill was allowed to
be the boss of the g'thering. He
held his exalted position but a
short while,for Sheriff Boudreau
put in an appearance, accompa
nied by Justice J. Ablert Schles
inger and Ed anon Trahan,and be
fore this trio Bill saw that it was
best to sing low. He was taken
to the cooler and when searched
was relieved of a long, butcher
knife with which he had :wed
the negroes. After resting in
hoc for awhile he was released
on $5q bond.
Building and Loan Of.
The Abbeville Building and
Loan Association, Limited held

Broussard, Kitchell & Bailey, at
torneys, and Btroussard &
Summers, notaries. The associa
tion, now in its fourteenth year,

effort in this town andiitssuccess
has stimulated the formation of
corporations. Stock one year
old earned a dividend of 25 per
cent and the total assets amount
to $89,408.
A Social Gathering.
A pleasant social gathering
took place at the hospitable home
of Mr. and.Mrs. Frank A. God
chaux last week which was grea4
ly enjoyed by all those in attend
ance. Various games were play
ed, but the donkey was the most
amusing and also the most inter
esting, the prizes being awarded
as follows: First, Wilmer Steb

Broussard Scores Escudler.
In replying to an article in the
Weekly Herald, I would say that'
self lauding is never worth -while
to take notice of. Mr. Escudier
was asked to umpire the game,
and he accepted on the first pop.
It was a very bad move on our
part, as his decisions during the
game were very crooked in some
instances. " He even tried to say'
that our last score did not count,
but his son Paul, beinglin better
disposition, came up and said it'
About the agreement made be=
tween myself ang Mr. Escudler,
I did not say that I would plate
in the box David Andrus and no
one else, but said that I had 'no
pitcher yet and that Didier
Bernard told me I could et -this
man David Andrus,but. this state
ment does not c6nfine m to Da
Vid Andrus in the box iand " no
one else. But they,on their part,
agreed to place Mr. Broussard
in the box and no one else' We
held them to this until thley ftit$1l
ly"consented to the age-eemenit
and placed Mr. Broussard -in the
box. The game began afterigreat
excitement and went on uitil the
sixth inning, when they saw they
would lose the game, the score
then being two to one in favor` of
Erath, even with all thle' crooks
made in their favor. They began
to bring kicks that we were bet.
ting when it was agreed dot 'to
bet on the game. 'I 'poSitively
say again this is another crook of,
theirs, because we did - not bet.
They on the Abbeville side' iet
swinging five and ten'dollai~
at us during the entire gal~ebu.t
the Erath's refused to take a·Biny
of it upas it was agreed not to. '
When they saw they could not
bluff us on the side the.y tried ' tq
tmn fi a fresh wftbherenfl. °W
refused and they gaveo us fiBve
minutes to decide. At -'the ex
piration of the five minutes they
called the game off in this way
having the umpire on their kid,
as this one was.
This is a tre stateinentot the
agreement made for the g hie
and the result of it is'alit turnad
