THE COURT HOUSE QUESTION. del
Last Tuesday the Police Jury met in 0
special session to receive bids for the W
building of the new court house. Two ni
bids were filed according to the spect
lications of the advertisement, with the sir
certified check accompanying each no
Mr. Lowman, of Lowman & Co., of no
Louisville, Ky., bid to build the court BI
house for the sum of $16,787. Mr. E. sni
J. Hamley's bid was $16,50O. These be
were the only two bids. Mr. Hamley's sa
bid was lower by $287, but the Loeuis- m
ville man proposed toput in a marble Pi
floor on the first story and to erect iron st
columns instead of wood. Lowman & hi
Co., have put up fifteen or twenty court ri
houses, besides water works systems in to
some of our large cities, and they are ki
prepared to do all they agree to do. ti
Oc the other hand Mr. lamley agrees lit
to erect a first class, modern court to
house, according to the specifications a
of architect Stanton. . and to employ t
the necessary skilled labor. bi
After the reading of the bids and the B
hearing granted to each bidder, the ai
Police Jury went into executive ses
sion. After discussing the matter ci
freely for a long time, they finally re- A
jected both bids, on the ground that tc
they were too high. as will be seen by tc
the proceedings elsewhere. T
In view of this decision of the Police is
Jury, a reasonable amount of defer- tt
ence admonishes us not to criticise A
their action, for they were guided in je
their decision by a just consideration to
of the welfare and ultimate good of
the public. Nevertheless, we have
taken the position from the start that a
East Carroll demands a fine court o0
house. We cannot get a fine buildiag
at a cheap priee. That goes without w
saying: Of course, after the building w
is completed, the furnishing of it and it
the erection of an iron fence, besides
other expenses, will amount to some- A
where near $2000. This must be d
taken into consideration in estimating P
the total cost.
The position we take, then, is this: ,
that althboigh the court house may cost I
is a big sum of money. yet when we n
get it, it will be an object of utility,
beauty and pride; and, in the long 1
run, when it is finally paid for, we i
will never regret the expense of its c
construction. We, are progressing all
the tite. Let our new court house be
in keeping with this spirit of progress. I

THE AKIE OF OUR TOWS. 'DU '
It has been suggested that the It i
name of our town should be changed know.
from the "Town of Providence" to give
'Lake Providence," for the reason he ga
that our post office name is "Lake and,
Providence," and that throughout major
the world the town is known by the altogi
latter name and not by its charter DPm
name. It is also argued, as a feason lall,
for the change, that sometimes in cooln
leeds, and other legal papers, the I ly to
name Lake Providence occurs in- teresi
stead of the real name, which is a gard
rtistake. The present charter of the the '
Town of Providence was granted by folio
the Legislature in 1876, when Kel- <<
logg was Governor of Louisiana. It days
was drawn up by Judge J. M. Ken- Crok
nedy, the first article of which, re- Dem
lative to the name and boundary of prob.
the town, reads as follows: tvanw
-Be it enacted by the Senate and work
House of Representatives of the State IIall
of Louisiana in General Assembly con
vened, That the following tract of land ment
in the parish of Carroll shall be the the r
boundry limits of the Town of Provi- up tl
dence, to-wit : Starting at a point on vote]
the west bank of the Mississippi river thou
due east from the lower line of the indi)
dwelling of Alexander Armstrong; the
from thence westward so as to embrace man
his house and lot; thence from the will
north east corner of said lot on th Cr
west side, and westward along the line
dividing the plantation of Ingram & scep
D)avis from the present Town of Provi- now
dence and the other lots and dwellings time
on the banks of the lake, to the south- he a
west corner of the property of John Gov
e Williams; thence northward to the put
° margin of Lake Providence; thence be t
eastward along the margin of sail indi
lake to a point on a line with the west
e side of Mrs. Biggs property; thence p
I north to a point on a line with the ocra
f north side of the property of W. A. year
t Blount; thence due east to the Missis- as o
sippi river, and thence south along the line
margin of said river to the place of '
e beginning. That the residents within gent
a said limits shall be, and are hereby have
t" made a body corporate and politic un- mah
der the name and style of the Town of
Providence, and under such name and aye
n style they, and their successors shall inUS
& have perpetual succession, with the tion
rt right to sue and be sued, prosecute and STA
defend any and all actions pertaining Alat
to said Town; to acquire any and all Arki
re kinds of property, by purchase, dona- Flor
D. tion or otherwise for the use and bene- (eol
es fits of said Town: to raise nwney by Irl
taxation for the naintenance and good edi
government of said Town, the enforce- Lou
°s ment of police regulations, for the Mar
>y maintenance and repairs of streets and M
bridges of said town, and for all im- Mit
provements deemed necessary by the I
Board of Councilmen hereinafter cre- win
3e ated." but
s Theproper manner of making the atti
er change is for the Mayor and Board of son
e- Aldermen to draw up the amendment
ato our charter, with the name of the like
ty town changed to "Lake Providence." tori
This must be published for three weeks or
e in the paper. This amendment must Un
r- then be submitted to the Governor and rp,
" Attorney General. If there is any ob- I and
in jection to the amendment by one- nin
in tenth of the voters, an election must eaq
of be ordered and a vote of the electors pla
ve of the town taken, in order that it a
at may be ratified. Section 43 of Act 186 ca
rt of the Acts of 1898, says: go
ag Be it further enacted, etc That ge
ut when a municipality now eiisting, anc
ig which has not come under the provis
id ions' of this act, shall desire to amend qi
its charter, the same may be done in
es this way: The Mayor and Board of wb
- Aldermen may prepare. in writing, the De
be desired amendments, have the same thr
g published for three weeks, in a news
paper published in the municipality, if eas
there be one, and, if none, then by post- tai
is: ing for said tnime in at least three pub- the
tst lic places therein; the proposed amend
Re ments shall then be slubmitted to the
Governor. who shail submit them to
'the Attorney General for his opinion. of
ng If the Attorney General; be of the opin- Ing
Re ion that the proposed amendments are ant
its consistent with the constitution andl ca
all laws of the United States and of this col
SState, including this act, the Governor go
be shall approve the proposed amend- vo
as. ments. If after publcatuon made. one- D
tenth of the qualitied electors of the s
ad municipality shall protest against the
proposed amendments. or any of them, an
me the Governor shall not approve the one oc
ted protested against until they shall be im'
submitted to and ratified by a majori- ch
enty of the electors of the municipality.
Amendments. when approved by n
the Governor, shall be recorded at the tl
rk expqnse of the municipality, in the ca
office of the Secretary of State and up
on the records of the Mayor and Board
hat of Aldermen, and. when so recorded,
me0 shall have the force and effect of law. K
A municipality not governed by this W
set may change its corporate limits l
under the provisions thereof. w
We suggest the idea of this change (2
'as- in the name of the town for the rea- cc
*sons above set forth, and we hope that fc
ach some action will be taken on it in the tr
five sear future.

oint THE PBREBIDENTIAL ELECTION. e
five - 3
,000 We have called attention on sev- v
yte- eral occasions lately to the com- P
last plaint made by leading Republicans II
-al -that the apathy of the voters in a
this present campaign, especially the e
' voters in the Eastern States, is most
del- pronounced. Even Marcus Alonzo a
g 40 himself, as we said, made the state. e
om- ment in Chicago several days ago g
turn that there was the distinct danger
er that New York might go pemocrat
ic at the election six weeks hence,
owing to the meagre interest which ai
the Republicans of the Empire State c
d io are now taking in the campaign. a
New In 1896, New York gave McKin
was ley the enormous majority of 268,-.
ad a 000; but, two years later, when
all Roosevelt straight from the glories
Sof San JuaI Hill ran for Governor,
d the 1806 majority of 268,000 shriv
and. eled mo 1898 to a poor majority of
ibel; 18,000. That was oan extraordinary
edi- decrease'-and all the more extraor
and dinary since Roosevelt was still bear
Sing his blushing honors fresh upon

and Senator Platt's hardly-concealed ani

,"Boss's" support of the Republican
candidate was lukewarm.
It is said by those who profess to
know, that Platt is not going to
give the Republican presidential t
ticket any more hearty support than
he gave the State ticket in 1898; d
and, in that event the Republican
majority is most likely to dispppear d
altogether. It is true that the
Democratic "bosses," Croker and =
Hill, are not working together sym
pathetically so far, but that slight
coolness of the "bosses" is not like
ly to be allowed to prejudice the in
terests of the campaign. With re
gard to the situation in New York,
the Washington Post which is not
in the least degree partisan, has the
"It is a very common thing nowa
days to refer to the war between
Croker and HIillas endangering the
Democratic prospect, but it is quite
probable that as the campaign ad- .
vances this war will stimulate the
two leaders to put in their hardest
work for Mr. Bryan. Tammany
Hall may be accused of bad govern
ment, but one should not forget that
the rule in Republican communities
up the State is known by New York
voters to be disgustingly corrupt,
though less widely advertised. The
indifference of Republican voters in
the State is very marked, and no
man can tell how powerfully they "
will muster at the polls. Mr.
Croker may not be pleased that the
scepter of Democratic power is just
- now in the far West, but at the same
s time the Platt workers are known to
be anything but enthusiastic over
Gov. Roosevelt, and a verdict that
e put him out of business would not e
e be unwelcome. The fact that all *
indications point to a much lighter
Republican vote and a heavier Dem
ocratic vote in November than four
years ago brings New York, as well "
.- as other States, nearer to the danger *
e line." t
f The same paper, which voices the a
general opinion that Bryan's chances *
y have improved distinctly of late, 4
makes a table of States which it
d ays the Democratic standard-bearer
1 must win in order to win the elec
e two. This is the table:
d STATES THAT BRYAN MUST FAVE.
g Alabama... .. . 11 Montana .......... 3
i1 Arkansas ........ Nebraska ......... 8
(olorado........ 4 Nevada ..........
Florida .......... 4 New York .......36
Georgia....... . 13 North Carolina.... 11
iy Idaho ........... .3 outh Carolina.... 9
d Indiana .......... 15 Tennessee ....... 12
Kentuck ....... 13 Texas... ......1]
" Louisiana. ....... 8 t....a
Ie Maryland .. . 8 Virginia .......... 12
Id Mississippi.......9 -
Missouri .... .... 17 Total .......... 225
e It is true that Mr. Bryan must
e win 224 votes to carry the election;
but whether that result couldu't be s
te attained through the medium of IS
of some other States than those men
t tioned here is open to question.
Delaware, for example, is quite as
e likely to contribute her three elec
toral votes to Bryan as either Utah 34
s or Idaho is; for the Regular and the
st Union Republicans bave failed after
id repeated efforts to come together,
b- and the Democrats' chances of a in
e- ning in the Diamond State are con
St sequently rosy. There has taken
rs place, on the other hand, a consid
it erable change of feeling in Utah,
6 and, although it has been Demo
cratic hitherto, it Is not unlikely to
go into the Republican camp this
t year. Instead of Idaho, Montana
and Utah in the table, it would be
quite as safe at least to substitute
in West Virginia with its six votes,
of which squints strongly toward the
e Democrats, and Delaware with its
ne three votes.
rs- But we confess that we do not
if easily see how Mr. Bryan is to ob
st- tain the necessary 224 votes without
i' the aid of New York. A good deal
d- of talk has been going forward
Sabout the probabilty that a number
Sof the Northwestern States, includ
Sing Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin
re and Minnesota, will vote the Demo. -
ud cratic ticket this year; and, of
his course, if these four States were to
or go for Bryan, the aid of New York's
d- vote could be dispensed with by the
Ie- Democrats. But we see not the
e shadow of a reason for expecting
ih any one of tihe quartette to go Dermn
)ie ocratic, any more than for expect
be iniig iowa or Pennsylvania or Massa
ri- chusetts to go I)emnocrat;c.
ty. T'he Democrats mnight do ~:ithout
by Indiana with its fifteen votes, for -
he there is quite a chance that they will
be carry either Kansas or New Jersey,
- and Connecticut; and the six votes
Sof Connecticut, with the nine of
w. KAinsas or the ten of New Jersey, In
his would offset the loss of Indiana's '
its fifteen. But we do not see any way r
whereby Bryan can win a majority V
ge (224) of the votes of the electorhl ,
ea- college, without counting New York di
hat for the Democratic ticket. It is to
the true that Adlai Stevenson, of Ilt. o
nois, has expressed his belief over
and over again that be will carry his a
State; but no doubt the wish is par. N
ON. ent to the thought. Illinois gave
McKinley a majority of 146,000 1
sev- votes in 1896; and Stevenson' s
om. popularity and the fact of his be- T
anA ing the vice-presidentlial candidate R
in are not likely to induce 73,000 vot- a
the ere to change their vote. f
lost With New York, therefore, Bry- '
nzo an has an excellent chance of being o
