The Constitutional Mommiteson
appointed for the purpose of s·
mitting to the neit Le[~ slatsr
amendments to the Constitution ol
1879, met promptly omFJast Tuesda;
Jan. 9th. at Baton-Rouge, and an
nounced the fact that they would
sit WITH CLOSED DOORS, and "givt
only to the public through thei,
secretary, the results of their ses
sions, or such part of them as they
would ch1 oo1'e.
We think it very unwise for the
Commission to have taken such a
stanid. Amendments to the Consti.
tution are a serious matter, and the
Coniumission charged with the task
of studying and proposing these
amendments, should from the start
give to the press free access to their
sessons so that the public at large
may know what they are doing, and
elpecially why they are doing it.
We doubt not, for a moment, the
ability of the Commission, but it
would certainly be % iser on their
part to let the entire proceedings
come up before the public, with
their individual reasons, their yeas
and nays, as their judgments did
think best. The public, meantime,
and especially the Legislators would
be given ample time, before the
Legislature meets, to weigh the
matter, to examine whether public
good should demand such amend
ments or not, and thus nothing
would be done blindly.
The Legislators, it is truei
throughout the State, will follow
.losely the proceedings of the Com
mission, ana have some idea of the
work before them when they reachl
Baton Rouge, hut their work would
have been shortened by half, had
they had at home to help them the
detailed work of the Commission, on
the principle that "two eyes see
better than one."
We consider the matter so im
portant that we open our columns
to a fee discussion of the points
adopted by the Commis.ion, hoping
that those among us, who are able
to discuss these matters, will give
the public the benefit of their ideas
on the subject.
Such points, for instance as the
tollowing that have already been
aRl,,pted and will be recommended
by the Commission, should be freely
discussed before the Legislature
1st. The poll tax to he not less
than St 50, nor more then $2.00.
2nd. The extension of the home
stead priviledge from $1000 to
3rd. The exemption from seizure
of household effects to- the amount
4th. The advisability of having
seven judtres of the bupreme Court,
who could, if necessary, form two
5th. The extention of the juris
diction of the justices of the peace
to cases involviig $200; also to the
trial of misdemneaniouirs, with the aid
of a jury composed of five free
lth. The advisalility to abolislh
the.lease system of convicts, after
h'e present lease expires, and toem
ploy them on pubile works, levees,
for instance, under the supervisio~
of the State.
We say nothing of the abolition
of the Circuit Court, for everybody
recognizeas the fact that it is a fifth
wheel to the judiciary coach and
should be abolished.
''lThe other points mentioned above
are very important, as every one
sees at a glance, and we sincerely
,hope that those of our citizens, who
ought and should take rnterest in
t.hese matters and are able to discusse
them intelligently, as we know
many of them ire, will give to the.
public ii our columns the benefit of
their ideas so that our Representa

of jurisdiction of the Supreme Court to
add cases appealable thereto all cases
arising under the Constitution, treaties
and laws of the United States, or under
the Constitution of this State, a'md cases
involving the legalty of costs, fees,
charges and allowances, whatever may
be the amount thereof; also all civil
cases from $210 to $2000. appeal to be

iTiction of this court remains otherwise
After an adjournment ther commis
sioners again took up article 80, and
amended it so that the Legislature shall
have the power in case the Supreme
Court as now constituted cannot readi
ly dispose of the business before it. to
provide for the appointment of two ad
ditional judges, giving the court au
thority to divide into section for the
more expeditious trial of cases.
They took up article 125, in refer
ence to justices of the peace, again,
and amended it so that a justice of the
peace, after his election. shall be com.
missioned only upon the certificate of
the district judge that he is a man of
good moral character and possessed of
sufficient knowledge of the law to dis
charge the duties of his office. Their
jurisdiction is to be increased in civil
matters up to $200. allowing appeals
to the District Court in all cases. and
the Legislature is to have the authority
to confer additional jurisdiction upon
them to try minor criminal cases, with
the aid of a jury of five, with appeals
to the District Court, where the fine is
over $20 and imprisonment over ten

the respective houses, for the manner
in which bills revising the statutes or

The present law requires t.hat they be

The Constitutional Commission,
who are now at work at Baton Rouge,
should dlevise some means of employ
ing the convicts who have to serve
their timne in the parish jail. It is a
shame that able-bodied men, who are
perfectly able to work, should be
kept doing n3thing and fed at the ex
penses of the tax-payers. In every
other country but this, and many of
the states of the Union, prisoners are
made to earn their daily bread; why
should they not do the same here?
To feed them doing nothing is an ena
couragement to crime; some negroes
ask nothing better in these hard
times than to go to jail where they
are clothed, fed and warmed at the
expenses of the public, thy cosia
not a Smith's farm, or somethig of
the kind be determined upon by the
Cnstitutlional Commission to be es
taeblished ai each parish? If they
had to work as they did in slavery
times, negroes would fear to go to
Jl1. Why could they not be made
to work on public levees within the

Became Demented and Denounced
His Wife's Motive While Travel
ing Through Virginia.
The following was handed to
us by a friend a few days ago, and the
many friends of Mrs. Simon Lewis.
and of her sons, who were born. and
raised in the town of Providence will
regret to read of the dementia'of poor
Sam, and hope for his recovery.
Rev. Samuel K. Lewis. a young
Jewis rabbi from Charleston, S. C.,
was transferred from Bellevue Hos
pital to the Bloomtsgdale Insane Asy
lum, Now York city. He had and.
denly shown signs of dementia while
on his wedding trip and his pretty
bride had hurried hbu back to this city
to have him treated by competent
specialists, says the Herald.
Mrs. Lewis herself was nearly wild
with excitement when her honeyrmoon
came to an abrupt end. Dr. Lewis
was not at all violent, but he had the
delusion that he was being persecuted,
and that a conspiracy bad been formed
to kill him. He had jumped to his feet
while pasring through Virginia on a
train and shrieked: *
-'You only married me for my
money. I will put stay with you
Mrs. Lewis tearfttly listened to his
raving, unable at first to understand
