a. SEFSaERIL 33, 1893. A 5 ( IAL; NOTICE. AdInastrators and S e desires to call ia rieds in .... - a ny esher medium, by OU BUY o a P hinotic sale The contract ered ind it n Sthroughfares of thee and paris a h, Police Jury, appears t besi cjust r ths ago. Acco r circding to the can erms of the contract the entire. houd have been delivered in thor-k, that timable Prowing to difcesculties en h:o ontered by the contractor an blice Jury in securing the right o as accorded the contractor. On the 7piirish by Mr. I. N. Satterfield -orJly the repair, grading, draining and mainrtetance of forty miles of the thepublic throughfares of the parish,king after repeated extensions by the Police Jury, appears to be just as fanr from fulfillment as ith ths several month s ago. According to the terms of the contract the entire system of roads, included, in it, ~ should barve been delivered in thor outghý order by May 1, 1893, but incet that time owing to diffculties en lthountghered by the contractor and obstffcles thrown in the way of the either tolice acceptry in securing the right of -way- and requisite width to certain parts of the road, a verbal extension dewas accorded the contractor. On Juworkly the 3rd. the contractor ad t.dressed a formal commulnication to thengury stating that he had been diaetide thatd by illness, and the extreme heat, in his efforts to comply with :,,the terms of his contract, and asking fowas a frther extension of 9 days. Thented ury adopted a resolution grant ing the time asked, with the proviso that wooo be forfeited to the parish, out of the contractor's $2ooe salary. Stin.ce the adoption of this resolution although the contractor has not officially signified his intention either to accept or reject the terms of the extension, yet he has virtually declared his acceptance of it by a very determiy evid but futile effort to work the roads sithat thce Pohich time othing hasb obtranliged to deal win dicate that ay contract exists. At the recetordeeting of the Police nJury, Mr. S otterfield the contractor was called en, ipso 'appeared repre sented by legal counsel. In answer to the question whether he intended to f11 th alteration of his contract, his counsel replied- that Mr. Satter thwould ittmakeno answer to the Sdoth.er questions The molative 'h . otrad thicts legislation wreply icitsd As the la ,st *tension hsdt of fts that the Police wl b e obliged to deal withe a serious questvriousn and oneby that Sivolve the arish in expensived. ~t~ n. While the Gzuette has 4iniindtently arid strenuously con that accordi t t the plicit of the contract it has long thawecente etic of the porochial ralterrtioned of the otraoent p "cicoditions ma ity so coniidertion atccorded the ~i~ii~b~t g J hinL97 `yate gew ess a viry naerked d-o Sof ttlesni.cy on' the part of that j Pter his co.tr. the tial terms of whlih woe. ppos by the contractor himself and this - done, although the jury bad a well- 1 guarded and ably drafted contract a in its possession, which, by the by, I the contractor would not sign. ad, The payment of Sizoo to theconp tractor when according to his own I admission to the jury, he has never I had' one mile of contracted road in a condition to meet the requirements I of the contract. 3rd, The repeated t extensions of time granted, and 1 this done in a way that may se- 4 riously complicate the legal status I of affairs. It as true that the con- - tractor is bound in $5oo bond to l faithfully execute the terms of the 1 contract, but only in case damages 1 are sustained "ly the, parish-vir-: .tually no penal cause being em bodied in the contract. Nothing has been said but with 4 Christian charity and for the single purpose that hereafter should the authorities enter into other con tracts of a similar nature, they shall proceed upon strictly business prin ciples and so guard against any pos stble complications. No person -should be paid $s until the terms of his contract have been faithfully complied with. At the next sitting the jury will doubtless take steps to re-let the. contract, either as a whole or inl sections as has been suggested. Let not one failure discourage, but let every good citizen lend assis tance to the jury in the solution of a problem that is occupying the at Stention of every community in our 1 country-how to maintain good public highways. Sound Advice. We have been shown a letter writ-. ten by Messrs. Dan Talmage's Sonkh SNew York, to a planter friend and take therefrom certain extracts which are of general interest and worthy consideration of every rice planter, f in fact the principle maintains and is capable of application, whether the product be cotton, sugar, rice or any crop which the producer makes to sell, Their4indicntment of the planters scramble to sell last fall, is just. They tfndoTbtcdly would concede that the first in. market did well and only speak of the matter in a general way, that is to say, while one or the exceptional inan profited, the many, i. e. ninety and nine out of the hundred suffered from the policy pursued. Everyone who has the rice industry at heart, desires that the producer shall not only get fair but good returns for time, labor and money expended and can but lament the t depression of prices during the past year. Planters are apt to blame every other man, forgetting each may have contributed by his i action, to the resulting low prices. For instance, take last year, when the crop opened everybody wanted to sell and as a t result, fully twice as much as the market could take was shoved into New Orleans last September. Shipments were continued at an excessive ratio throughout the season and as a result of this constant pressure, the market steadily declined. It simply followed the well-known law pertaining to supply and demandd--over supply makes a low range of value. r Better prices are now being obtained and we believe there can be a further raising of values, but it can only be done by a spirit r of co-operation. There are. consumers for every sack of rice raiped this year. What is to be done?: Feed the demand, that is, ship in proportions to meet the requirements of market. There is no question but that the losses by a drought in Louisiana. and cyclones on the Atlantic Coast will favor a much higher range of values than last year and redound to the benefit of those who have been fortu nate in making a crop. Whatever the Snormal value may be, we would urge upon t planters the wisdom of deliberation in the disposition of their product, and you and your planter friends can serve the crop in e general and perhaps advance your own inter ests by shippig in monthly installments, a thus preventing over supply at any given t time. By this course the highest average of values is more likely to be secured, B We believe that the advice given s is sound and if acted on will secure desired results. 6ome might say t "hold back the crop'-* this, however, gwould probably defeat the object. SValues might be unduly enhanced Sbut as everyone would then naturally Sdesire to sell, there would be haste to realint, thus causing a swift re O action and terrible downfall in prices, r approximating or similar those of last year, What is wanted is wise, a concerted. eoesr.kitive acition and e the course suggested is natural and Lt practical, i. e., feed the demand ~market with deliberation-ship ii ' munthly Installments,.

Mr. Cade, in conversation with a Time~-Dpmrno ytlreprteCr said, that be was gradually dismissing all the old force in order to take in Demo crats, and that ere long every Repub lican in the Mint would be out. He said that. while he had to discharge the ladies under him who were in his 4epartment with much regret he had to take in consideration that each and every one of them bad been in the Mint for years, and that he thought that there were a great many deserving Democrats who had never been given a cha t.s'and :R` at it was his duty to -'help them. . In almost every case the -lady employes of the Mint have beei-in oflice many years, and Seperintendent Cade thinks that they should gives others a chance. This rule he had made i:. his department, where he has only three ladies, the other ladies in the Mint being in the coiner's department. The Aoeldent At Harveys Cannal,. We take the following from the timues-Dnmocrat of Sunday. The fireman, Joe Valuier, whose name is 1mentiaed, is a resident of Lafayette and hai~spny friends here who were happy to learn thiat lie had escaped unhurt. -• ILat night. at 7:45 o'clock, as engine No. 339 and a working train caboose-came dashing by the little collection of houses on the Southern Pacific road, at Harvey's Canal, the residents of.the place who were hor rifled to see' the'engine, as it reached thp rail~oad bridge, give a leap, and -then sith a wild hissing of steam go down inroto the waters of the canal. The engine fell almost perpendicu larly, the tender stood up also verti cally, one end of it resting on the engine in the canal and the other supporting the caboose, which reared itself upward in the air, at an angle of about 30 degrees. Immediately the people ran to the spot to render what assistance they could. It was found that the draw bridge was open, train a wreck, and the trainmen were picking them selves up from all sides. The engi neer, Mike Linch, and the fireman, Joe Vallier, were on the engine when it struck the bridge, and the ea gineer, seeing the danger, yelled to the fireman to jump. Vallier did so, and fortunately landed in the middle of the canal, and save a alight wound of the hand was unhurt. The momentum of the train was so great that he jumped twice as far as he intended, and had he delayed his jump a moment later hi. body would have been dashed against the piling opposite, and he would have doubt less been killed. The people who came up saw him swimming out, Engineer Lynch stuck to his place and went down with his engine to the bottom of the canal. His ex perience was thrilling and his escape marvelous. At the first sight of the open bridge he reversed the lever, opened the sand valve and yelled to his fireman to jump, He did not jump himself nor attempt to, and after the first shock of the falling engine he found himself under the water with his left leg pinioned between the engine and the tender. Very fortunately the leg was not fastened too tight, and with a great effort he pulled it out, leaving part of the skin and flesh on the tender. He then, with commendable presence of mind and quicker than a flash, broke the glass of his window and crawled out through it and came to the top. He attempted to swim to shore and was picked up bya .part of fishermnen, ~onisting oaf Me.Js. E. F. Dickinsgn; Dan Kelly, Thbmas Vaughn and Jphn h1cCtackaen. The people cf.. the place, after a hasty examination, found that neither the conductor, Fred Manie, nor the brakemen. Jim Finlay and Jim Foster, were hurt, and turned their attention to the engineer, Mike Lynch, who appeared to be suffering. SHe was taken up by kind hands and .carried to the house. of Mrs. John .Angousset, near by, :where he was examined and his left side found to be injured, f The Road to Breawt Bridge. Valley of the Teche. On Satarday ad inst., on Thursday 7 7th inst., on Saturday 9th inst., and on Monday a lath inst., our mail failed, -to reach us, because the train was behind time. Now on any day oflthe.week, when the trains are not on tinme, it is only a delay of a few minutes in any other place than here; but at Breaux Bridge it is one of fully a4 hours .Uandh ox Sattirdays of 48 hours; on Monday *sipn wse then get three mails at sr.4me. When.-we ask the minaii-driver uir.%e Sdoes not wait a few minutes ocr t'-e arrival of the train, so that he may lhave tIhe ~dil of the day, his answer is tha'o -ad from here to the *dep~ a bad condition 'ke-i ght. 'i fact is that although, t the hliv r bll ef Lafay eand ~ir 'bre g miand er. ed riv ey not 'Hndert to iag 1 'pas ger througii the road-In the night.' The writer-himself was forced to start once during the night to take the 6 a, mi train at Lafayette, and although he had one of the best drivers in town, he lost -his way, upset buggy...pasenger and himself in a pond of water; part of the bags' gage was lost and he- finally drove back to Breaux Bridge, as it was im possible to land his way to Lafayette, and the train was missed, And of this road which is seven miles long, there is only one mile in such a shameful condition; and it is painful to state, that although during the greater part of the year it is the only outlet both for travelers and freight, in spite of all complaints and temonstrances-the people have never found it possible yet to obtain relief. And this in the face of the fact that we are paying a tax of so mills and of the awful drawback that it brings on this ccmmunity. In ItMenosrlasm. Effie Young Tolson, the youngest child of Dr. F. R. and Mattie Tolson was born in Lafayette La., January 3rd and died Sep tember 17t'., 1393, Age 8 months and. 54 days, Little Efec did not live long in this world of disease and death, but l1ng enough to entwine herself like a vine tendril around the hearts of her fond parents, Death" the grim monster in tearing her away, left the hearts of her parents all ruptured and bleed ing. She was a very qi4t and amiable infan', already showing indications of a sweet di' position. The little flower had begun to bloom, and in blooming withered and died.
