.A Mysterious Killing.
Last Saturday night Alcide Thibodeaux,
a married man 44 years old, accompanied by
Simon Navarre, a young man t8 years old,
stopped at the house of Gesnaire Breaux
living 3 miles north-east of Rayne, and left
there with Breaux's two daughters, stating
they were going to Crowley.
After passing through Rayne, and near
there, they were joined by a crowd of 5IS
men, and coming over into Lafayette parish,
E stopped at the home of a farmer named
From what could be learned, some of the
crowd appears to have enjoyed more favor
in the eyes of the women than the others,
whereupon the green-eyed monster took
possession of Erwin Meaux and some others.
And they hatched a plot to kill one of the
number; Erwin had borrowed August
Morgan's (his friend) 45 calibre pistol, and
later they were seen in the yard and heard
to make threats.
Morgan was standing near the door.
Erwin was a few feet from him,
when a shot was heard, and Aug. Mor
gan fell dead with a bullet hole above the
The Sheriff heard of the killing at about
1 8 o'clock next morning and immediately left
I for the scene, and when he reached the place
he was informed that the killing was acci
dental. But on noticing that the pistol was
in the scabbard, and that the scabbard was
laying unbuckled on the dead man's breast,
at once surmised that the tale of accident
look decidedly dubious, and proceeded to
arrest Erwin Meaux; the arrest being made
just across the line in Acadia parish.
At the coroner's inquest but little in regard
to the true inwardness of the affair was eli
cited, the testimony given having but little
of the elements of probability, it was evident
that it was given apparently either through I
fear or with a view to screen the one who
fired the fatal shot, hence the inquest was '
closed with very little light thrown upon the
Sheriff Broussard returned Monday to the
scene, gathered additional evidence, which I
it is thought best not to divulge presently,
which led to the arrest of Alcide Thibodeaux
and Simon Navarre charged as accessories t
before the fact. The belief is that others
are implicated in the affair, and other arrests
The three parties arrested are now quar
tered in the parish jail.
Altogether it is a mysterious and compli

The Gazette deeply regrets the painful t
duty of chronicling the death of Mrs. Louisa P
V. Denois, wife of Mr. Edmond Pellerin,11
who departed this life on the Ith instant, at
the age of 50 years, $ months and 6 days.
The interment of the mortal remains took
place next day from the Catholic Church, 1
and were followed to their last resting place n
by a large concourse of friends.
Kind hearted, generous to a fault, this esti. Ih
mable lady had endeated herself to a large i
circle of friends, who feel sadly her demise
She was loved best by those who knew her
best, and many are the recipients of herh
kindness and generasity who will sadly miss
her. - -
The Gazette begs to tender do the deeply 1
-ereaved family its most sincere sympathy. ti
h On the 7th of March, St. Patrick's day,
was the Rev. Father P. J. Healey's fete, and
1 on this anniversary of the birth of his patron
o saint, he was kindly remembered. First, the
little boys of Mrs. Bailey's school called in a
e body at the presbytery to wish him many
a returns of the happy day and presentd him
as a token of their affection and gratitude, a
- beautiful carving set, the presentation re
s marks being made by Master Walter Donlon.
The boys were loaded down with pretty
t bouquets and delicious cakes. And ali told
a it was a most happy e.vent.
Later a few of his personal friends pre
t sented him with a magnificent combination
shaving cup, with the inscription,. "happy
feast." The remarks on this occasion were
made by Master John Tierney.
It gives us much pleasure to say that
Father Healey has endeared himself to the
people in a very pronounced manner, and
what is more he is fully deserving of their re
gard and esteem. The Gazette here toasts
his health and hope the returns of the day
will follow for many, many years to come.
On this auspicious occasion the printers on
the Gazette force were not forgotten, and
for the courtesies extended desire to return
their grateful thanks.
We understand that the young people are
looking forward, with pleasant anticipations,
for the evening of the 19thinstant. On that
evening will take place the grand ball, the
proceeds from which will be devoted to the
High School Building fund.
The object for which this ball is given ap
peals strongly to every one interested in
public education, and the purse strings should
be thrown away for the occasion.
But besides this it is pretty certain to be a
great social success, and will afford to those
attending much pleasure.
The arrangement committee, we under
stand, are leaving nothing undone to make it
the event of the season, and those who miss
it will miss a treat.
Let's all go and make it what every one
hopes it will be a pleasurable and financial

It is rumored that a sugar refinery is to be
established in our vicinity. Such an im
provement would greatly enhance the value
of our rolling lands, which for years past,
have been under the sole cultivation of the
cotton staple. The low prices for the sea
sons of 1890, 1891 and 1892 had disgusted
even our most industrious planters. But the
languor which had begun to creep among
our people will soon vanish away-the erec
tion of a refinery; the extension of a branch
line from Cade station to Royville, running
through a rich and fertile district ; extended
switches at Duchamp station, Broussardville,
and Landry Bros. All these improvements
would so much favor the cane cultivation,
that the cotton acreage would be reduced,
t within the next three years, to what the
cane acreage is at present. Every farmer
would be facilitated to diversify products
and thus an era of prosperity would soon be
made to prevail in a deserving land.
The decision of Judge Allen in the Ber
nard vs. Hawkins case, (published in The
Gazette last Saturday) has created quite a
stir among the merchants and other business
men, It becomes a matter of impossibility
for them to make advances to any person
working on shares inasmuch as no guaran
tees can be offered through which their
money would be secured. One more step
towards the abolition of the credit system.

.Messrs Ferris, Humble and Roussel, re
presentatives of the Ferris Sugar Manufac

week. It is said that they have completed
contracts for the purchase of over six hun

It is almost a settled fact that we are to
have a branch road connecting Carencro
with Arnaudville. The road has been sur
veyed as far as Singleton's, and the grad
ing and building will soon commence. It
will run through the most fertile section of
the parish, and will undoubtedly prove of
inestimable value to Carencr, and bring us
in contact with a large area that now is whcl
ly dependent on the Teche for the transpor- I
tation of its produce. It will greatly en- I
hance the value of the property through I
which it will run, and will no doubt peeve a [
very successful and valuable investment. All a
