We notice that a long stretch of
bank above town has been reveled
with rock, and as soon as the whole
stretch is completed, which should i
not be many weeks, there will not be 0
any further caving. The work done a
a few years ago shows how well and e
satisfactory it is holding. There is it
uo. a breal in the whole lengthe which .t
is several thousand yards long. There
is a point about middle ways of this n
work, where the current strikes it
with strong force. and it is as solid as a

t G OALANTY-STOCKNER.
Last Wednesday evening, at 6
o'clock, Mr. Fred Galanty was
united in wedlock to Miss Sallie
- Stockner at the home of the brides
e parent's, Mr. and Mrs.Max Stockner.
e The house had been approplriately
idecorated for the occasion with ever-I
g reens, and everything was made
rready for the coming of the bride
Sroom. At 6 o'clock, while Mitch
ell's hand was discoursifig sweet
music, the groom entered on the arm
z of his brother, Mr, Sam Galauty, fol
lowed by the bride, on the arm of
t her father. At the altar they were
met by Rabbi E. J. Bogen, of r
Greenville, who delivered a few well
chosen remarks and then performed
the impressive marriage ceremony oft
the Jewish religion. Immediately
after the ceremony the bride and '
Sgroom were surrounded by all pres- c
I ent, who congratulated them both a
i and wished for them a long life of
happiness and prosperity. Supper
was an elegant affair, and Mr. and I
Mrs. Stockner receivel many compli- c
ments on the elegant table set for e
their guests. The bride and groom
were toasted by a dozen or more gen- ,
tlemen present, first of whoto was
Rabi Bogen who made a few happy
remarks in keeping with the occasion. ca
Wine and merriment abounded until
the hour of midnight, when the jolly to
crowd had the bride and groom good
night after wishing them all the good
luck possible. 'lhey were the recipi
ents of so'me very handsome presents
from various friends.
Mr. Fred Galanty is one of our A
young Jewish merchants. and a very
estimable young man. Miss Sallie is
one of the' younger daughters of our
old friend, Max Stockner, and a
charming young lady.
They will reside in Lake Provi- st
dence, tshere Fred is in business i
with his brother.
The Banner-Democrat joins their li
friends in wishing for them a full at
share of the joys and prosperity of tt
this life and a smooth road to travel NI
over together. ni
Good luck to you, Fred. ti

for sometime. We unuderstand that
Mr. Hill will not return for some
time and contemplates going into th
business at or near El Paso. He is er
one of our best citizens, honorable II
and upright, and stands high with w
every one, and we wish him success th
in whatever calling he may under- G

GRAND JURY REPORT.
To the Hon. Judge of the 9th Judicial
district--We. your grand jury duly em
paneled for the .January term of 1901, of the
said court, to enquire in and for the parish
of East ('arroll. respectfully beg to submit
Sthis our tinal report.
We have examined forty-three cases, and
found thirty-one true bills, among them
two hills for murder and one case forman
slaughter.
I We have visited and inspected the parish
iail, which contains toutteen prisoners, and
we find that the jail needs repairs outside.
and painting and white washing inside.
and we are sorry to say, sadly in need of a
thorough cleaning with soap and water.
We would lheretore respectfully call the
attention of our police jury to this matter'
and trust that that body will take this mat
ter up at its next meeting. and we would
further suggest that the sheriff of this par
ish personally look after the sanitary con
dition of the jail and [make a personal in
spection front time to time.
We would further suggest that the jail
yard fence be put in a proper coudition so
as to present ane:at and orderly appearance.
As per your Honor's charge. this body
personally made an inspection of the
clerk's othice. We find the books neat and
properly kept. Owing to the fact that it is
very essential that our records should be
properly preserved, we deem it most neces
sary and essential to the welfare Of all who
nlilight have rei estate transactions in this
parish and to avoid complications. conul
sion and litiration, we most urgently re
quest our Hon. l'olce J.ury at its next
Illeeting to make a sulticient appropriation
le to tIroperly rebind any and all records that
miav le in a delpidated condition.
, i'e have visited the sheritfs office and
r find his honks neat and properly kept, and
siice our lion. Police .J ury seem to be quite
re skittisn about awarding a: contract to build
a newv court house. we would therelore
suggest. that they. at 'least, appropriate a
ti few dollars to patch the rool of the court
Shouse. to prevent the books of the sheriff
front being damaged and also, thereby ran
is dering the jur" box, which is immnediately
over head, upstairs. dry and comfortabrh.
e, We are sorry to say that crime seems to
be on the increase. and since the session of
the last jury term of court, which was in
August. five homicides have occured in
this parislh four of which, took place in
levee camps.
It is with much regret that we have been
very seriously handicapped in our iuvesti
;ations of the above name crimes. for the
reason we have had great dilticulty in get
ting the principal wifnesses before us
without serious delay, coupled with the
seenting total indifference on the part of
some of the intelligent class to ald the au
thorities in bringing the offenders to just
i8 ce. It is a noticiable tact, that the most
Ss ricass crimes have occurred in one ward,
e viz: The tirst, which is where the levee
9 camps tire located; and unless the good
citizens aid the officers of the law in appre
hending the guilty parties sand setring the
evidence at the tinme the crimle was com
-mitted. ou tlaws will be brought into dis
reputile. mi) violence will be eiu'ouraged,  
the floating characters who pay no taxes,
will soon take charge of the parish.
Your Honor has especially charged us in
re; violations of theSunday law and carrying
concealed weapons. As to the first, we
I had sumtmoned before us quite a number of
witnesses front all parts ol the parish, and
after due investigation have returned a
tunumber of true bills for this offence.
We are satisfied that the practice of car
trying concealed weapons tends to increase
crime, and we have endeavored to sift this
matter most thoroughly with very little
success, aits there seems to ie a decided dis
position on the part of many to shield such
violators of the law.
We have also investigated the gambling
with slot machines; have returned several
true bills. We sincerely trust that all good
citizens who desire to see this form of
gambling put down, will report all viola
tions of the law in the future. as the slot
machine encourages the youth of Louis,
lana to love the game of :chance, thereby
leading to all kinds of gambling.
We especially request the coroner in
case of future homicides, to use every
effiyrt in securing all possible testimony,
together with a full and complete list. of all
names, their residences &c., who were at,
near or parties, to the crime.
In conclusion, we desire to thank the
sheriff and his deputies for prompt and
efficient service; also, the officers of the
court for many courtesies extended.
Having completed our labors for this
term, we respectfully ask to be discharged.
Respectfully submitted.
