IN N V IBERIA FOR OP
Freight Being Received From
The Patterson Case.
A few days ago the Clarion was
informed by what it considered
good authority that there were
fifteen pouches of mail matter in
New Iberia for Opelousas.
Yesterday evening the scheme to
get the mail from New Iberia was
revived, and several parties asked
us if there really was mail matter
at that point for Opelousas.
The Clarion last night wired the
To DAILY IBEBIAN,

Please answer by wire tomorrow

any. mail lying in New Iberia post

New Iberia, La., Oct. 8th.-There
is no mail for .Opelousas in the
New Iberia post office. We are
receiving freight from New Orleans
under United States government
quarantine and disinfecting laws.
Drs. Tarlton and Roussell, of St.
Mary, pronounced the case at Pat

it to be not yellow fever.
From Thlursday's Daily.
Mr. Albert Lastrapes, of Prairie
des Femmes, died yesterday at his
home near the above mentioned
place. Mr. Lastrapes is a member
of a large and influential family iii
this parish, and his parents were
pioneers of this section.
The people of the town have ap
parently become resigned to the
inconveniences put upon them by
the quarantine, for the great maj
ority take the matter in a phyloso
phical manner. This is indeed for
tunate, for the authorities would
doubtless experience no little in
convenience if the chronic kicker
was much in evidence, when in a
situation of this gravity the con
curance of the people is needed.
This session of the criminal court
has thus far been eminently suc
cessful in convicting criminals and
disposing of the criminal business.
The judge, district attorney and
court officers have done as much
as human power could doto bring
the guilty to punishment and to
dispose of the criminal docket. Yet
at the termination of the criminal
session so much will remain un
done as to demonstrate the abso
lute necessity of having a judge
exclusively for this parish, with

year like the courts of New Or
We are glad to learn that our
sister town of Washington will be

Of course we immediately wired
our news gatherer that he had our

that we did not desire a monopoly

The Board of Health of Opelousas
met Wednesday evening.
On motion of Dr, I., E. Shute,
quarantine was declared against
St. Martinsville, Patterson, Roy
yville, Abbeville, and all points
Ssouth of Lafayette.
SDr. Mayor moved to amend it so
as to read "unless it can be shown
that goods received at said points
had undergone fumigation and dis
infection under sanitary survell
The amendment was lost and the
original motion prevailed,
Moved by Dr. Shute, that any
guard found in an intoxicated con
ditios, or asleep orn duty, be dis
charged at once. Carried.
A telegram was read from the
Mayor of Arnaudville to the parish
health officer that strangers from
below had passed around Arnaud
ville on their way to Opelousas.
Mr. Adolph Jacobs returned from
a business trip to Lafayette parish
and the town of Lafayette yester
day. He says that the people of
Lafayette are alert and active in
the present epidemic, and that
they are leaving-no stone unturned
to keep out the fever. He inform
ed us that the business of Lafayette
had absolutely stagnated, and that
but few of the merchants had a
supply of provisions op hand. Also
that the Cresont News Hotel had
closed its doors to the public until
after the present epidemic,
We will say in this connection
that the people of Lafayette have
had no heed to their interests in
this epidemic, for notwithstanding
the threatening attitude of the
railroad officials to take the round
house away they have stood by
their guns and acted like men in
the matter of rigid quarantine.
For some time young Devilliers,
of Notleyville, has received threat
ening letters and messages from
Mr. A. T. Castille, of this place,
that he intended to hold him to
account for some Inaginary griev
ance done him by the young man's
father who is now deceased. A few
days ago Castile sent him word
that if he passed his house comling
into town he intended to shoot him.
Accordingly when Devilliers. came
to town yesterday he stopped at.
'the quarantine Post, a short dis
tance from Castiles' home, and
took Charles Thibedeau in the bug
gy with him. When he reached
the spot opposite the house, Cas
tille showed up with a Winchester
and indicated that he intended to
carry out his threat, whereupon
Mr. Thibodeau placed him under
arrest and brought him to prison.
We may add that Castille has
been jailed before for similar of
fenses. He was pronounced insane
and inderdicted by the court some
time ago. He has sent many
threatening letters to a prominent
attorney of this place, and it would
be well for the community to send.
him to the asylum.
The Clarion yesterday published
a report of a disposition on the
part of some Palmetto people to
take matters in their own hands
and to stop the freights supposed
to come from infected points. We
also said that it was supposed by
them that empties from New Or
leans were being used by the rail
road to bring freight from Saint
Dr. Thompson, the parish health
officer, infprms us that there is ab

position, is freight coming from
St. Louis is brought from St. Louis
in the following manner: The
trains come direct-to Monroe by
the Iron Mountain, where they
are taken by the Houston Central
and brought to Alexandria, and
then the California train of the T.
& P. transfers them on to Palmet
to. Thus we see, according to this
programme, that.. thereq could not
possibly be any danger of infec
tion from that source;
Mr. T. A. Hicks, a, responsible
gentleman, is inspector of goods at
After the goods arrive in Palmet
to they are rigidly inspected and'
the weigh-bills scrutinized by him
before the freight can come into
the parish. As a matter of fact
freight trains from New Orleans
are not allowed to stop over in any
parish in Louisiana.
The Clarion is not an alarmist.
On the contrary, it has combatted
the sensationalists in our midst for
the past three weeks. But we have
a duty to perform, a duty as sacred
as is the duty of the physician who
is called to the bedside of a patient.
The mission of a newspaper is to
give the facts as it finds them, to
tell the truth no matter how harm
ful or bad it is. There are too
classes of damphools that are to
be dreaded in this country: the
alarmist and the person who tries
to lull you into a false sense of
security. Shun ther both and
look the situation calmly in the
As far as human judgment goes
the chances of yellow fever getting
into Opelousas are remote, but the
situation is nevertheless grave, and
there should be no let up in pre
cautionary measures. Let our
Boards keep up their rigid quaran
tine; a little privation is infinately
preferable to yellow fever. Let
our people keep everything about
the premises in thorough sanitary
We have been permitted to make

a lady of our town for many years.

the people that this is dangerous.
The postmistress and her assis

their enjoyment of the situation is
the thought of the rush that will
take place "all in a heap" when

Agent Settoon communicated a
request to Dr.4Thompson from the
Southern Pacific railroad officials
asking permission to run a train (
through Opelousas to Alexandria
for the purpose of transporting
sleeping coaches manufactured for r
another line. Dr. Thompson
promptly refused the request, giv
ing as his reason the arbitrary ac- I
tion of the Southern Pacific in re- a
fusing to bring freight here from
the West by way of Alexandria. o
Dr. Thompson has taken a com
mendable position, and his reply
that if they would agree to bring
freight here from Alexandria he
would accede to their request, is
perfectly justifiable, and especially t
when we consider the disposition
on the part of, this corpoirtion to
ignore the interest of our people.

We have been besieged this
morning with the following inquiry
over the phone:
"Is it so that Mr. Evans is down
with yellow fever at Palmetto?"
And our answer for the last few
times have been "Damit No! ring
off!" The facts relative to the
rumor are just these:
Wm. Evans has been in the vi
cinity of Palmetto buying and
shipping cotton for some time. He
was taken down with fever and
to-day sent for his wife,and phys
ician )r. J. P. ~eiass, who left~ -for
his bedside im.nieately. P:here is
absolutely no caeuse for apprehen
There is certainly no cause for
alarm when we consider the cir
eumstances surrounding this case,
in the first place there is nothing
strange in Mr. Evans being down
with a fever, and when we remem
ber that he sent for his wife we are
forced to believe that he himself
has no fears, for it would be un
natural indeed for a man to use
lessly expose his family even when
there is a vestage of evidence to
make out a possible case of yellow
fever. More cosvincing stillis the
fact that he is at a non-infected
and well protected point: It will
be well for the gossiping public to
cease their chattering and take a
sensible and sober view of so called
susplcions of this character. No
good can come out of such reports,
and inmeasurable harm will result
to the town and its butiiness.
Since the above was written, Dr.
Saizan has returned from his visit
to Mr. Evans. He says that the
gentleman has a mild type of ma
larial fever, and that he is in no
danger of serious results. He says
that there is not the slightest .rn
dication of yellow fever and thsat
