It is said that the pay roll of the Southern Pacific railroad represents g144,ooo a year at this point a good part of it spent in town. A central refinery would in a year or two add, perhaps, $200,000 more. The total in circulation would make many enterprises possible. Lafayette must vee the refinery. In regard to the complaint of our corresponeence "Cherokee" in re gard to bridges, we will state that the Police Jury, at its last sitting, authorized the purchase of several car loads of lumber.

We think the Police Jury is disposed to do their best, and will give attention to, and correct, all causes of complaints. We had the pleasure of an agree able call, this morning, from Mr. B. A.

Wzraingoon Argus. A young man named Robert Borrow, aged about 16, ran away from his home in New Orleans, enticed by, and in company with a tramp, and on reaching this town was apprised of a telegram from his parents, stating that arrangements had been made with the railroad people to give him transportation home, and would also provide for his immediate needs. Notwith standing the urgent request of the tramp that they should continue journeying together, Robert very wisely decided to return home to his parents. His short experience no doubt convinced him that to see the world a la tramp did not hold the comforts anticipated. * In driving across the bridge near Moss store the planking gave way, and one of the horse's foot caught in the break and he fell, while the other horse kept on pulling until the carriage was over the prostrate horse, when the latter made a strug gle to get up, and did succeed so far as to throw the carriage over, precipitating the occupants to the ground. In the carriage were Mrs. Kelly, Miss Effie Young, Miss Zaza Cornay, and in the arms of one of the ladies was the baby of Mr. E. J. Trahan, and the driver. Except some slight bruises to Miss Cornay, no injuries were sustained by the parties. It was a very lucky escape. The Champions. Editor Gazetter The Royville "champion" base ball club, lost their "championship" last Sunday in a match game with the Pilette (Stonewalls) Club, by a score of 4 to z6.

They made the acquain tance of Brown who invited them to take a drink which they accepted. Brown says that after taking their drinks they walked to'the yards, apparently on friendly terms, when to 4&b utter surprise, one of the Mexicans knocke4 him over the right eye with a piece of stone, inflicting a painful and serious wound. It is not known what their motive was, but the assault was most cowardly. The Mexicans made their escape, but Sheriff Broussard is after them, and is doing all in his power to effect their arrest. Carencro News. From Our Regular Correspondent The case of the "Parish of Lafa yette vs. Corporation of Lafayette," should prove of con: iderable inter est to all towns in the parish, which like Carencro, are incorporated un der the Act of x88o. No matter what the decision may be, it is bound to redound to the benefit of such towns. Should the decision be in favor of the Corporation of Lafa yette, there is no doubt that Caren cro, and other towns similarly or ganized, can successfully resist the further payment of parish taxes. If, on the other hand, the Parish comes out victorious, it will increase its funds very materially, and enable it to lend a helping hand to those towns which are practically under its protection. So the "vane" indi cates a fair wind, no matter which way it points. -Our energetic street commis sioner, Mr. Saul Broussard, has been doing considerable bridge work lately. -Mr. Maurice Francez was quite sick for several days, but we are glad to note that he is well and among his friends again. -.Now that the Carencro base ball club is regularly organized they ought to adopt a neat uniform. They have proven themselves ex pert with the "ball and bat," and with a uniform everything will be complete. -Brother "Cherokee" will ac cept our thanks for the information that "a representative has been se lected who will receive the unani mous support of the voters of the prrish. '.' Totidem Verbis admits with considerable sacrifice of pride that he has no idea who the fortu nate individual can be. -The high winds of the 7th did not do as much damage to the crops as was at first expected. There was considerable cane blown down, but the beneficial effects of the rain will counteract all damage. Rice suffered the most. -The Teche Railroad Company are pushing their work with a vim. A tap connecting their road with Couvillon and Breaux's plantations will be commenced immediately. -The Opelousas biclycists will pass through Carencro on Sunday, September 27, and not the 27th, as published in last issue of The Gazette. -Mr. Ernest L. Mouisset, of La fayette, was a visitor in Carencro last Sunday. -Mr. G. L. Singleton has on ex hibition at the Southern Pacific rail road depot, a Keiffer pear that weighs one pound and 734 ounces. Mr. Romain Francez, chief engi neer of the Teche railroad, has com pleted the survey of the road from Huron to Grand Point, which is only three miles from Breaux Bridge. We are getting there. -Since Mr, Louis Stelly has re turned from the Chicago fair he can not look a yellow dog in the face. Ask him the reason ? -Dr. Girard and Mr. Alcide Ju dice, of Scott, were in town last week. -Cotton catterpillars have made their appearance, but it is too late to do very much damage. TOTIDEM VERBIS Roy.ville Items. From Our Regular Correspondent. -The public roads in the different sections of the parish may be in good order, but, in the 4th ward, they are, frankly admitting, in a fearful condition. Daily your correspondent must listen to com plaints coming from reliable gen tlemen-and these parties cannot understand why no action is taken in repairing the road, and rebuild ing the "breck-neck" bridges along the Royrille lane. Is Lafayette parish so reduced that at least two little bridges can not be granted us ? Surely it cannot be that her cash is all gone-still it looks like it. The prevailing question here at present, is, will the Royville lane be made passable or not? Will the Police jury always remain duimnb to our entreatics, and must we cont'nuc to Grand Opening cale of the Season! BY L. LEVY & SON.

Come early while the stock is complete. remain in oblivion ? Our confrere's "notes" from Carencro in last week's Gazette called our attention to the fact that we were "left out" in the advertising scheme of Lafa yette business men. This is no doubt "un coup d'etat," but, "ma foie" they did just as well, as we would be ashamed if strangers in quiring for Royville, were shown the directions to take, and then undergo the risk of breaking their necks in reaching this place. Next to marshy swamp our Royville lane is unequaled. -Regardless of hard times, finan cial troubles, storms, etc., our boys still keep up the fun, and know when they have a "cinch." Such was the case last Sunday, when many a shining dollars changed hands.
