When the present City Council took charge of the municipal affairs co of this town the condition of things SO w:hich then prevailed was nut at all _ satisfactory,"but two years of. wise and judicious administration have brought about a decided change. tr When the preceding Council went out of office, there was not enough money in the treasury to pay out standing debts and the corporation me was indebted to a number of citi- Cal zens. These debts were paid by the present Council, despite the fact that the revenues during the V first year of its incumbency were curtailed neatly one half owing to the decision of the Supreme Court which prevented the collection of taxes from the "additions." By this decision the town was deprived Si of nearly half its revenues. But the "additions" were soon re-incor porated and it required the same amount to run the town although the money collected was far from being what it was the year before. We repeat that the Council was handicapped by this large decrease su in the revenues of the town; never- of theless old debts contracted and al left unpaid by the preceding Coun- h clI were liquidated and all new obligations were met in it regular order. The financial af fairs of the corporation have been administered in a straight, bus~ness like manner. The proceedings of - the council published monthly never failed to show how every cent collected had been spent, or if J; not expended, where it was. This part of the people's business has been particularly well attended to. These are facts, cold, stubborn facts. The books are there to prove their correctness. The town i has been as well lighted as ever be- al fore; the police has been equally as h good; the streets are in splendid h condition; the town owes no one, and there is a surplus in the treasury of over $2zoo without ii counting the amount raised by the , collection of the special tax--the tl last report of the treasurer shows $16oo to the credit of the latter fund. V How was it under the former Council, when the men who want to get into power, were at the helm? Without wishing to be unneces sarily severe, we are compelled to say that the finances of the town were in very bad shape. Will any supporter of the People's ticket gainsay this? Is it not a fact that there was a shortage of some seven hundred dollars, the result of loose management of the public funds? There is no use getting excited about this thing. The issue is clear. It is whether we are going to have a continuance of good mu nicipal government or a return to' the old order of things. The success of the Democratic ticket headed by Mr. Charles D. Caffery means an intelligent, busi ness-like administration such as we have been having under the present Council. Mrs. W. C. Abbott and family left last Sunday f-r Southport, La. I I)o you love flowers? Fresh flower seeds of all kinds, at Moss Bros. & Co's. Misses Sarah Brown and Jean mard of Carencro were visiting in Lafayette Wednesday. Dodgers were so named for the reason that people "dodge" taking vthem and "'dodge" reading them. That is why dodger advertising Sbrmings no results.
