Constitutional CamvoM on.
.Mr Editor:-Allow me through
the coluntrns of your laper to informll
your readers of what is being done
ill this Parish it order that our i{ep.
resent atives may uunderstand thhe'
seutiwent of the people with refer
euice to ia Constitutional Co(nven
tion. A few of our citizelns bteing
inuformed that thei w Ipeiolt of Hien

Gtenera.l Assembly on this slllject,
determinedri to ilct ii. eoutl*rt, andl

aof IReplresentativesi to mak lllsk iroti

ait the ensuiltg sessioll of the IA'lgin
gitluire. (ihl the sutbject of constitu
tionall revision there is, I suppose,
but one opinion. All see and tel
the llecssity', but how antd whens
is tile lquestion thait gives rise to
dIiflerences-sumen favoring legislai
tive ameslldmeuts, others a coavlen
tioll. The advocajtes of the former,
i. e. by unldllealment, urge as one of
their Ihe:aviest objections to a cons
venitio -is tthe exxlnelts attachitng
thereto. Again they chaium that ill
ait ew eoastitution we will Ihaive to
vote oni it as it whole anlld thie pirob
ability of havilng nli.ny things still
objectionable. O(ne other that 1
lhave hIeard, to mny mnind too weak
to notice, is ihat the interest of the
sosutl ern part of the State sand the
river parilshes are diverse to thalit of
the nortllern parishes, a:lnd we will

It is true we sliall have to veot
u-lit the new cosistitlition as -
i hole, iil that it lntayv have objec
tioabile fealsires, ssre'lv nieo tisore

are altogether fstvorable to leus
anidl tiheis we are left the samse r

S have too sinclh legislatiots, too mns ;
oicers with too much salaries
Who will dare gaiinsay this but th
interested? It is aslso urged tha
we need a political sabbath after
struggle of years in order tha
every politiest sterre be qutieted, inns
the strife asset bitterness of year
be buried, two ask the deliniueu
taxpayer whose home has been soha
for taxes, if his condition will admi
of such a isabbath; ask all theae peo
ple who voted for those who were
so loudly calling for retrenchment
janid reform if they cawr louger wait
for theta to fulfill their vows, and
if you get no anaswer sooner, next
Jovemllaer, '7t, you shall hear them
answer is their representatives
come ntot nlow to their relief by a
newI constituttion. In this parish in
less thllan one week ward six speaks
out by latition almost unanimlousnly
for a convention. .n one day in
Ste town of llomer over one hutn
dtred niames were signed il a most
enthusiastic tanllnter, only one man
refufsing hlaving og-ctions, and one
decliniung on the grounld that he
a had given the subtject but little
thought. .Aladl so far ias I have been
able to learn none opipose a conive
tion except those now holding of
fl nee, and this is not to be construed
as emltbracinlg all that do hold office,
aor as a reasam that lromlpts them
enatirely. I do not regard this the
time nor do I claim to be the man
to lresent the objectlionable features
!of tihe lIresent constitution; but as
'--to the bIsRt nuolo of relieving our
si elves, I ha:ve Ino doubt tlhat a con
vention naill be the chealest anad
the only way that will ever satisfy
the 'people' of this State, and give
San a goverlnment that will secure
proslwarity to the Ijeolle. and afford
that shelter atl irotection that
shall invite and encourage emi
I grants and capital that will devel.
op the resources of otr State. Then
let every man feel his inlterest in
this ttsubject land get uip ltittiolns
and secure every voter's naale who
f tHels thle weight of taxes and waants
