In its last issue The Gazette an- t] nounced the arrest by Marshal Vig- 0 neaux of a suspicious negro named George Washington White, in whose t! valise the officer found four watches and a small clock. White was de- f tained awaiting identification. On the 55th Marshal Vigneaux received o the following telegram frem the ma yor, of Thomasville, Ala., who had ni probably read of White's arrest in ei the New Orleans Picayune which contained an account of his arrest ui and detention. Here is the telegram: H "Hold George W. White for requisition o0 papers. J. N. CAMMACK, Mayor." so On the next day Marshal l' Vigneaux, received a telegram from fo Sheriff Wakite, of Clarke County, al Ala., stating he was coming with the requisition papers to- take White to h the scene of his -crimes White is p charged with burglary and grand lar a' ceny of some watches and some tl money. When informed of the ex- s pected arrival of the sheriff, White ex- h pressed his willingness to go to S. Thomasville without the requisition st papers. He claims that he will be able to prove his innocence. a Should be Stopped. li This week while at the depot wew were surprised to see a number of people carrying in their arms stalks le of sugar cane, some having as many as six and seven stalks, and upon inquiry we were informed that they m were taken from the cars of cane in to transit to the refineries. We were told C' that a certain negro had taken enough of them to sell to the e passengers on one of the excursion trains which passed here Tuesday. Thirty-five stalks were counted near the waiting room and, if our inform- m ation is correct, this is only a re- ti petition of what has been going on for a long time. It appears to us of that therailroad companyought to put Vt a stop to this reprehensible practice. The planters ship their came to the t refineries and they expect to get paid for them, and it is certainly doing in them an injustice to allow this thing to go on. Sc ta Heymen Plonaky. s The young man mentioned in the follow ing clipping from the Morgan City Indepen- w dent-Democrat is well-known here and is the M son of our townsman Mr. Joseph Plonsky: eli "Wednesday night at the splendid hostelry to of Mrs. Charles Gross, a number of invited sti guests, friends of H-eyman Plonsdy, assem- to bled to assist in the celebration of his six- Oj teenth anniversary. Young Plonsk); is a Ri clerk in the Red Star store of Cougenhem & M Bendel, and by his close attention to business, on polite manner to customers, and gentlemanly staring to all, he has won the estePm of all Ia uiis acquaintances, hence the honor conferred LI upon him Wednesday night. p Is ATTEMPTED ROBBERY. Wednesday night, at about 1p o'clock, Sheriff Broussard received a telegram from B Mayor Dimitry of Carencro, stating that Mr. SLouis Deleglise, a merchant at that place, had been robbed of some $15oo or_ $sooo. The sheriff inmediately went to Carencro, I began an investigation of the case,and after be I ing advised of allthe facts, informed Mr. De leglise that it was his belief that the money had been stolen by some one familiar with the surroundings, and that the money was either hidden in the store or not very far from it. With his usual activity and skill, Sheriff Broussard started to work and ex amined a number of witnesses. On the next day, when the sheriff was still at work try ing to unravel the ipysterious disappearance of the money, he was informed that his belief of the day before was well founded, as the money had been found under the ice box near the desk from which it was stolen. Evidently the money was placed there by some one who intended to take it away at a more convenient time. Mr. Deleglise kept his money and valuable papers in a tin box which during the day was placed in the desk. Much credit is due the town authorities and c.tizens of Carencro for their prompt and well directed efforts in trying to find out the per petrator or perpertators of this robbery. American Legion of Honor. At the regular meeting of Harmony Coun cil No. zo55 of the American Legion of Honor, held last Tuesday, the following officers were installea to serve for the term of one year: A.

In order to secure this splendid company for the patrons of his Opera House, Manager Falk has guaranteed to the management $x5o for the two nights, and for this reason it is hoped that the theatre goers of Lafayette will show their appreciation of Mr. Falk's efforts, in securing a good show by attending the performances advertised for Dec. 28 and 29. We give below the opinions of competent judges on the character of the troupe: Rev. Thos. R. Markman of New Orleans says: "It would be difficult to exaggerate the excellence of the entertainment given by the Heywood Celebrities. To this the en thusiastic appreciation of the audience gave full testimony. All, from the oldest to the youngest from the most refined to the rough seaman from before the mast, uniting with one voice in expression of the strongest ad miration." Times-Democrat of Dec. 12th: "Last night there was a very delightful musical entertainment by a company of singers and players known as the IHeywood Celebrities. The company had come here with a fine rep utation, and the character of last night's performance fully sustained it. * * * Heywood Celebrities inaugurated the series of really first-class entertainments which, some time during the course, will include a lecture by the Rev. T. )e \Vitt Talmage." Picayune of Dec. 12th: "The entire per formance was one of great merit and far above the ordinary." Governor Lewelling, in defending his action in protecting the unem ployed men in Kansas from arrest and punishment on the ground that they were tramps, declared that his sympathy went out to them because he was once a tramp himself. He said that in i865 he tramped the streets of Chicago without a cent of money in his pocket, but anxious and willing to do any kind of work that would enable him to earn his living, and he realizes now how he would have felt had he been arrested and sent to the rock pile, for no I other crime than that of being penni less and out of employment. ADDITIONAL LOCALS. Wmin. Holleman, assistant section fore man at this place was promoted last Mlonday to the position of section foreman on the Cypremort branch. Mr. J.Weigle,section foreman of the South ern Pacific at this point, has planted some oak trees along the front and south side of the Crescent News Hotel and along the C west side of the railroad track. Conductor Mayfield and family, of Cypre mort, are spending the holidays with rela- C tives in Lafayette.
