Tuesday evening there were a good to
many of our citizens who got out of

Wednesday morning the thermome

finest thermometers in town. By S;
e others it registered 16 degrees, which I
shows that it was the coldest niorning

when it went down to thirteen.
We call the attention of our readers
t to a communication in another column
signed by Mr. J. D. Tompkins, in re
y gard to the manner in which the Justi- C
ces of the Peace of our parish have II
,f been acting heretofore in committing F
people to jail without trial or hearing.
e Because the imitations of Dr. Tiche
nor's Antiseptic smell and taste like

Mr. Phil Meuiare, with his usual
energy and push has secured the sole
agency of our town for the celebrated
Anheuser-Buch keg beer, and has had
put up a cold storage room with the
capacity of 106 kegs of beer and ten
tons of ice, which will be found to be
a great convenience and, saving to
those handling keg beer. He will
keep on bhanud a large supply and
whenever a keg is taken out another
will be put in, keeping it ice-cold all
the time. Besides, it will be sold at a
lower price than is now paid for its
delivery. It will be a-big convenience,
and instead of firms ordering in ten
and twenty kegs lots as they now do,
ll they will have to do is to get a keg
whenever they need one, saving thenm
the expense of keeping a large supply
of cle on hand.

n The gentlemen holding the notes
y against the Opera House want their
1- money, and we do not blame them, for
it has been long past due, and we hope
that there will be enough of interest
d taken by the people in helping to pay
off this indebtedness and preventing a
foreclosure. By giving an entertain
Snment enough of money can be raised
to almost wipe out the debt, and we
alhppe those interested will get to work

THESE ARE FACTS. d
Banner-Democrat :-Allow me to %
state to the public one of the principle t
causes of the heavy criminal expense tl
of our parish, and suggest a little law
to our Justices of the Peace. which. If F
heeded by them, will curtail the ex- u
pense very much.
These officials have a code of their c
own. For instance an affidavit is made
before one of them cha:;ging a party r
with a crime, and upon that bare affi
dav:t they will issue a warrant and
have the person arrested and commit
ted to jail indethfinitely withou!t a hear
ing. In this there is no law known to t
any one except a magistrate for any
such proceeding. The constitution
provides that where a man stands r
charged with crime he shall have a
speedy trial as to his guilt or inno
cence. If on examination he is found
guilty the J. P., fixes the amount of
his appearance bond before the District
Court; in default of giving bond he -
then issues a commitment to the parish
jail. If no one appears in a reasonable
I time to substantiate the charge the
I magistrate has no right to hold him i
,-ad infinitum," but should order his
Now, to show this situation, there
were eighteen parties in jail (some of
whom were in there for months on a
mere affidavit) when the grand jury
met, and they were all released except
one, and the grand jury did not exam
ine his case or they would have re
Had these same parties had an exam
ination before the committing J. P.,
a they would have been released and
e saved the parish this expense of board
ing them for weeks and months for
nothing. This work continues all
it throug the year, simply for want of
e knowledge in executing the law. These
irregularities are perpetrated on an
Signorant class of people and should be
stopped bysome means. If no other
I. way, either abolish the office of ,. P.,
d or change the name and call them "In
s justice of the Peace."
I will again say, that a party charged
" with ant offense against the law, is en
h titled to a hearing within twenty-four
i. hours if possible, and in default, can
be released on his own motion.
The above is written at the request
a of a member of the Pollce Jury, with
n out the slightest intention of disturb
i ing the minds of the J. P's.

For the first lime in many, many
f years the parish jail has not a prisoner
t within its walls, and it is to be hoped
a that it will remain in this condition
for sometime to come. It is a large
expense to the parish to feed from ten
to twenty prisoners year in and year
s out, as it has been the cae in our
parish, and it is gratifying to be re
e lieved of this- very heavy and costly
item. it is to be hoped that it will be
y sometime to come before there will be
t another person within its walls.
