Alfred Hebert arrived in Lafa

narrow escapes and he is to be con
gratulated for having successfully
scaled the quarantine walls of
Crowley, Rayne, Duson and Scott
without sustaining any injury orget
ting locked up in some melancholy
pest-house. Mr. Hebert says he
was stopped seventeen times be
tween Mermentau and Lafayette
and had to use a great deal of di
plomacy to get through the lines.
At Crowley he was advised to leave
town as the presence there of a
stranger from any point would very
likely cause much excitement.
Even to enter Lafayette he was re
quired to produce the regulation
certificate and to give a satisfactory
account of himself.
Mr. Hebert's wife and children
are at Grand Chenier and will re
main there some time.

President Da.'s Assassin.
The attempt to assassinate Presi
dent Diaz, of Mexico, which was
made on Thursday, was followed
Friday by the lynching of the assas
sin by an infuriated mob. The
whole affair is most extraordinary,
and although it is to be regretted
that a mob was permitted to take
the law into its own hands in a po
pulous city like the City of Mexico,
still it must be admitted that the
assassin's fate was well merited.
There appeared to exist no reason
for the attempt on President Diaz's
life, except the anarchist principles
professed by the assassin. The at
tempt was a most foolhardy one in
the extreme, and there was really
no chance of its succeeding. The
self-confes'sed anarchist who made
the attempt possessed no weapon,
and depended entirely on stunning
the President by a blow and after
wards killings him with his own
sword. The natural result of this
insane plan was that the would-be
assassin was promptly knocked
down and arrested by President
The arrest of the anarchist was
accomplished without difficulty,
and he was promptly hurried away
so as to escape the mob. Later,
the prisoner was removed to-a place

mob had no, ,diaculty in gett at

Iaw in a proper and effective man
ner. Justice is sufficiently swift and
unbending in the sister republic to
render all resort to mob violence
entirely superfluous. The action
of the people can, therefore, only
be attributed to the Immense popu
larity which President Diaz erj oys.
The lynching of five men at
Versailles, Indiana, will give the
people of the North something to
think about other than the lynching
of negro rapists in the South, which
they have been so quick to condemn
and to preach long sermons about
the lawlessness of this section of the
country. It is quite evident that
the North is acquiring the "Southern
habit," consequently the holier
