A Sure Couat Agin' the Governer.
I buhas been fashionable in some
quarters to point out and keep up a
continual conmment ll out the sins
of omission and the bilas of conmUia
siou of J. Y. Handers, Governor of
the great State of Louisiana. In it
all. however, we are candid to admit
that we have not been able to "catch
ou" to any of three charges until
within the last few days.
One of the most persistent charges
agiainst the Governor is that he is
actually and uetively engaged in the
'"propeganda" of goodt roads for
thin State, and he loses no chauce to
g~t in his work anywhere in Looisi
"na that he meets with any kind of
esemonrugensnt. Now, the propagan
dlo baebsH , we suppose, is to be re
garded as soowethiugin the nature of
a crime, and there seemn to be no de- I
tense for the Goveroor from the per- I
siateut ctalrgethat he isa full ledged t
"propagandist." Webeter gives us I
Propegs*dist-A pernon who de
votes bimauit to the spread of any
sysiea of priaVples.
Now, while Opr. Sunders was ln
Colfax lost week, we heard him tpik
sloat "good roads," and bow to
have them, and If thereever was such
a thing as a "propagandist," we are
frmad to admit that the Governor is
that Tvry thing. We have felt all
alokg that there wan possibly some
chue.i `that the Governor might

Louisiana Lags Way Behind
In the: Matter of Good Road. She Stands Tenth in the
List of Southern Statec -Just Now Waking Up
to Their Imperative Necessity.
The great State of Louisiana
within the past few years has made
some wonderful strides in the mat
ter of finuancial proresea, the build.
ing of railroads, factories, school
houses, etc., and in the general ed
ucation and uplifting of the peo.
Spie, but in it all her public roads
bhare been overlooked and sadly
neglected. Of late, however, the
strenuous efforts of Gov. Sanders
to have the people take an interest
in this important subject is bear
ing good fruit, and the people gen
erally are wsking up to the great
importance of the movement.
This is none too soon, for Louisi
ana at this time is a laggard in the
race 'for good roads, and stands
tenth in the listof Southern States
in the matter of appropriations
for this important object.
Within the last three years the +
Soath has engaged extensively in
the building of good roads through- I
out het borders, and all of Dixie 4
Land is in this work in earnest,
and Louisiana must take part or I
be left behind in the march of I
progess. In order that our read
ets may sppreciate the extent to j

"Interest in the improvement of
public highways is not lagging.
Since last June plans have been
made for the investment of no less
than $17,056,000 in good roads
throughout the South. Both 8tate
and county authorities are every.

speediest and beet results. Texas
has taken the lead by voting bonds
to the amount of $5,000,000. Ten

Georgia ranks third with 82,110,

81,750,000. The figures for the
