",,1889 Our friend of the 1laynesville Star. and the editor of the Eagle Eye have, we believed, settled their differences outside the code ducllo. - There is trouble anticipated be tween Germany and France on one side and Bussia on the other, that may lead to war. If it does, it will be one of the most sanguin ary affairs-on record. A new paper has been founded at Washington city, called the "National Democrat." .It is - a progressive paper and proposes to boldly and fearlessly assert the doctrines of the democratic party. There seems to be holding up on the pirt of the Louisiana editors with the judicaty matter. It will be but a short while though before they will light in on the Lottery. The lorghum industry prom ises to becrme a paning. business in the outbh. One factory in somen northern state recently made 300,000 pounds from this years' crop. There will be a lively fight in i the next congress over the tobac co tax bill. The Republicans of = some of the tobacco states have i declared that they will not sup ' ,port any man who, for the speak- 2 ship, opposes the bill. k"9 he Georgia legislature has re s tly passed an act, which makes it a crime for any merchant or "anyone else to furnish any minor with tobacco, cigarrettes, or with any substitp" therefor. , The sheriff of Lafayette patish t is a bavre and plucky man.

CONVICTS ON SPUBIC ROADS. The 4lrge: nuIber of convicts , recently sent from this parish to the penitentiary, suggests the - question of working them on the tCr public roads of this parish. Dur ing the last twelve months there have been about twenty strong, able-bodied men sent from this g. parish to the penitentiary, their - terms varying from one to twelve 3w years. Now, if it were possible and practicable to work these men lie on the roads of this parish, it le would be a great benefit to the fir traveling public, besides, relieve le the citizens from road duty. This number of men could keep the roads in first-class condition all e- the time. But we are inclined to )n doubt the practicabldlty of carry r, ing into effect the existing laws 's on this subject. . Act 30, of the regular session of 1878, provides that the judge may ! sentence any person who has been e convicted of offenses punishable a at hard labor in the penitentiary, o .but not necessarily so, to work on ie the public workis, roads or streets of the parish wherein he has been conpicted. The police jury is em p. powered by this same act, with a the authority to pass laws and r. regulations to carry into effect h the foregoing provision. Now, e had there beeen some practicable provision made whereby these twelve men recently carried to Baton Rouge could hare been worked on the roads. Judge Barkesdale would have sentenced them to work there instead of to the penitentiary. But under our view of the matter, it will cost as n much to'work them as the profits - will amount to. The law does not af llow the convicts to be chained, I e it would therefore take a number - of guards to keep them at work. a So the expense of getting the work, including the board of the con- t victs and guards, will amount to as much as their labor is worth t to the parish. There was anoth or act passed in 1888, which gives a the judge the right to sentence a s man on the public works in case I of misdemeanors, but the ques- a i tion of whether the convict will I f work or lie in jail is optionary t r with him, therefore but few of t - them are likely to con'sent to go c A out and laber for the parislh. SIt would be a great saving to t the parish it there was some un- a ,expensive and effectual means of a I carrying out the intentions of l these laws. It does look like .'that when the parish is run to I such a heavy exrienseo of trying a these parties, that it should reap a some of the beufits of their la. bors and not let Mr. James get it all. We hope at the rsitting of the next policejury there will be a discussion of this question, and if. possible, some practicable and un expensird means be adopted to d avail the tax-payers of the labors of their numerous convicts. i AFFABr IN ILAFAYBTIR. . *.The Lafayette regulators har ve done bad agd are. in due course0lc of havingttheir regulatiaon P'hicl t pleapptlied to their o cases.

The death of Mr. Coxis a loss cts to the Democratic party, to, Con to s ress, to the Life Saving Service, the to the new States and to "the re rhoe maining Territories and to the or- ceuntry at large. He was a man ere of wide information, broad ideas, ng, large sympathies and indomitable his energy. A thorough-going Demo eir crat from the crown of his head to lre the sole of his feet, he neutralized ble the acerbities of partisanship by ten his infinite good humor, his ready it wit, his strong and charming per the sonality. Reared in Ohio, he 3ve moved Eastward to the Atlantic his Coast, but his sympathies moved the Westward and he had the enthu all siasm of a pioneer for the great to West. Ils confidence in his coun 1' - try was an exhileration. His we interest in mankind arose above everything else. He did more than or any other One man, very muchi ay more than any other msn excel; h en Superintendent Kimball, to make )le the Life Saving Service of the y, United States the best in. the = on world. His help could always be I its secured for every humane and en philanthropic enterprise. He was m- particularly the champion of the Lh Hebrews. He was a Member of i nd Congress at-large for all the Terri ct tories. He was the friend of every 1 w, man or interest that needed a dis- I ile interested champion. 1 se Mr. Cox's Congressional career to began years before that of any en man in the present or any recent oe congress, but the continuity of ad his service was twice interrupted, to once when he removed from Ohio t ur to New York, and 'again when; on as account of impaired health, he ac ts cepted for a short time the office ot of Minister to Turkey. For near. C d, ly a generation Mr. Cox partici- 0 ar pated in all the great debates and k. all the epoch-making legislation h k, of congress, and yet he found n time to lecture extensively, for to charity whenever he was asked *h to, and for his own benefit when t ý- no charity was seeking his aid, n 8I and he found time also to write an p a admirablecongressional history of b is his own time and more thaq half p s- a dozen of the most delightful. a 11 books of travel that ever informed b y the minds and broadened the in- c f terests of those whose world is tl o circumscribed by their country a boundaries. And yet he died at o the age of only S65, and two weeks L . ago he was as full of mental and B f and physical vigor as he was 30 p t years ago. :e In "Sunset" Cox the country o o loses one of the most agreeable1 i g accomplished, versatile and pict- a p uresque characters of its political o world.-[National Democrat.] ti HAYtESVILLE DOPE. o [ (From oar regular correspondent.1 n L The protracted meeting at the Methodiht church closed last von O day night.'
