Opelousas will once more break into the
newspaper columns in every portion of
the United States when the famous Walters
Dunbar case will come off in this city on
April 13th.
Well, we simply cannot expect to have
sunshine twelve months out of the year.
We need a shower once in a while, and we
presume that the few that we have ex
perienced this week will come in handy for
the truck farmers in old St. Landry.
Dr. Oscar Dowling is making it hot for
the quack doctors in New Orleans. It would
be advisable for him to start a crusade
against the so-called doctors in other locali
ties, although we are sure, that he would
p t find any quacks in this section of the
Any one who doubts that our town is
not right up to the notch let him come here
and see for himself. Very few cities i
L uisiana can boast of the progress Opelou
s' s has made in the last twelve months.

William C. Walters, alleged kidnaper of
little Robert Dunbar of this city, who will
be tried in the St. Landry District Court on
the 18th of April, will most positively get a
fair trial. When a court, as distinguish
ed as the local court, appoints an attorney,
as noted and as famous as Hon. Edward B.
Dubuisson, to assist in defending the ac
cused, there is no doubt in the minds of the
citizens of the community that nothing but
:,. justice will be meted out to the prisioner.
Every one in Southwest Louisiana, and
throughout the state, know that Mr. -Du
. buisson is an attorney of the highest calibre;
the people here are positive that this honor
able and distinguished lawyer will do all in
his power, by honorable and legal methods
'to have the accused acquitted. He will fight
as hard as he always does, whenever he
takes up a case, and Walters will get a fair
There is no danger of suspecting that
the alleged kidnaper will get anything but
a just trial. The Opelousas court is as hon
orable courc as there is in the United States
and most assuredly the several distinguish
ed and notable lawyers, who will prosecute
the accused, will not use any dishonorable
methods for convicting Walters. On the
contrary every possible means by which
Walters can prove his innocence will be
tried by the authorities. The police jury c
has appropriated sufficient money to have
several witnesses brought to Louisiana to
testify in favor of the alleged kidnaper.
Walters will have a fair and impartial ,
trial and no one knows it better than the
accused's lawyers, as well as the prisoner t
Whilst it is the concensus of opinion
In Opelousas that we should have a Muni
cipal Sanitarium no one, thus far, to our re
gret, has strived to push the movement on
forward to success.
We have had occasion to interview sev
eral, -although not all, of the prominent
physicians in this city concerning the ad.
i viability of converting the building now
b(neg occupied by the St. Landry High
Sehool, but which will soon be vacated, into
S~: sanitarium, and thus far no one has, as
yet raised any serious objection to the plan.
(Ma the contrary they all agree with the
i ar0on that Opelousas should have a Muni
ipali Sanitarium and that the above build-1
ig is an ideal plee.
This city needs a hospital and should'
have one immediately. But in.taese days of
k: la- t of living and taki ng . t con
·Itn the several thousands of diers
ei: t ` at present expended for pubelir J
provement the city cannot afford to spend
thirty or forty thousand dollars to erect a
sanitarium. With about five thousand dol
lars, which we are confident, could easily be
secured from the revenues of the town, the
St. Landry High School building, which is
the property of the city, can easily be made
into an up-to-date and sanitary hospital.
We cannot afford thirty thousand dollars,
just at present, but we can spare five thou
sand dollars for the safety of the commu
nity. In the course of a few years, then,
perhaps Opelousas will be in a position to
erect one of the best sanitariums in Louis
Every progressive and thriving town
and city boasts of a sanitarium owned either
by private individuals or by the municipal
ity. Eunice, the western metropolis of St.
Landry has an up-to-date hospital, and sure
ly Opelousas should be able to follow this
example of a sister town of many years its
A municipal owned sanitarium is what
Opelousas must have in order to make it a
success, though individuals might make a
great success out of it. But if Opelousas
erects a sanitarium the tax-payers here, as
well as the people of the surrounding coun
try will feel more assured that it will be an
enterprise which will remain here -and will
be for the sole putpose of assisting the thou
sands of citizens of this community.
The Clarion would advise the Mayor and
Board of Aldermen to.lbok into this matter
and to appoint a committee to confer with a
committee, composed of doctors of this city.
In the next three months the building will
lay idle and it is high time that this propo
sition of establishing a Municipal Sanita
rium here be looked into by the authorities,
if they are disposed to do what is right to
wards the people of Opelousas, as we earn
estly believe they are.
1 There is a great future in sight for
Louisiana; the entire United States concede
that fact. The South in General will pros
j per as soon as the Panama Canal will be
, opened for navigation. But unless Louis
iana reaches out for her share of prosperty
we are liable to be forgotten when prosper
' ity comes around after 1915 to distribute
e its dividends.
' The five million dollar exposition, which
- is proposed to take place in the city of New
SOrleans sometime in the latter part of this
- year, will greatly increase Louisiana's
chances of becoming some day the most
powerful export state in the Union.
Louisiana needs to put up only two of
the five million dollars, which are to go on
F the Exposition of Ideas, the other Southern
I states will contribute the rest. The work
for placing the proposed exposition on a
t sound basis has been started in earnest and
the country no doubt will soon be called
upon to give all the assistance possible to
the metropolis of the South. Yes the coun- 1
try will be asked to contribute to the cause
and we should certainly go the limit, as this
exposition will boost Louisiana up, not only
as one of the most progressive states in the
United States, but also as one of the great
est agricultural sections in the world.
Louisiana must not let this opportunity
of becoming a powerful factor in the finan
cial world slip by, it cannot afford to do so,
and it is up to the New Orleans people to do
what they can in promoting this great en
terprise, whilst, at the same time it is up to
the country citizens of this great state to
assist the Crescent City to our utmost ca
Now that Southwest Louisiana, in gen
eral, is reaching out for immigrants, it would
certainly not be out of place to mention the
fact that this section of Louisiana, and es
pecially St. Landry parish, which we hope
in time to come, will, be the leading agri
cultural as well as financial parish in this
state, needs to offer something better than it
can show at present, in order to induce the
scientific farmers from Northern states to
settle in our midst.
It is true that Southwest Louisiana is
the Garden of Eden of the United States,
and St. Landry the center of it. And it is
true that we have everything desirable to
make this country the greatest agricultural
section in the world. Southwest Louisiana
rightfully boasts of the very finest farm
ing lands in the entire United States. The
climate is the most agreeable and favorable.
All that, we now possess' and more, too.
But what this country needs, especially St.
Landry, is drainage, which is invariably
followed by good roads.
Nature, with her geneious hand, surely
intended to make this the real and true Gar
den of Eden. It blessed St. Landry, partic
ularly, with the best natural drainage, with
out doubt in the State of Louisiana. With
scores of streams on the east, west,- north,
south and in the center, this parish is geo
graphically speaking the best drained in the
But unhappily, alas! through careless
ness, no doubt, these many streams have
been clogged up and are now insufficient to
carry away the water from off the alluvial
farm lands. Through the lack o~ drainage
the farmers of St. Landry, ad particularly
those living short distances from Opelousas
in the Bayou l Mallet and Plaquemine sec
tions lost considerably over a million dollars,
during the rainy season of last October and
November. The Union Irrigation Com
pany's loss alone amounted to over three
hundred thousand dollars. This is money
lost, which will never, never, as long as the
world ro'is on, return to St. Landry parish.
The farmers have suffered, so have the
bankers, merchants and professional men.
There is but one way to prevent such a
heavy loss occurring again, and that way is
drainage. With about three hundred thou
sand dollars, roughly estimating, this par
ish could be drained thoroughly, from one
end to the other, simply by dredging sever
al bayous.
Can the farmers afford to lose millions
of dollars each year, simply because they
are afraid to invest a few hundred thousand
dollars in drainage? The first expense will
be the last, whilst if this parish is not well
drained the farmers stand the chances of
being overflowed any time of the year.
When good roads and good drainage
will be secured for St. Landry we will not
need to spend hurdreds of thousands of dol
lard each year in an endeavor to interest
prospective settlers to come to our section.
On tne contrary immigrants will be pouring
into this section by thbusands at the time.
The opportunity is at hand and it is up to us
to seize it.
The taxpayers in the two road districts
of the sixth police jury ward have a chance
to say whether or not they desire to get out
of the mud or -remain on roads which be
come impassable for three or four months
each'year. The two progressive members
of the police jury from that ward have call
ed an election to vote a three mill five year
tax in both districts. This election is due
to come off on the 19th of .thd present
It is beyond the shadow of a doubt that
the roads west of Opelousas to Eunice can
not be worked in any condition,
whatever, with the momey which
the sixth ward receives from the po
lice jury as its share of the road fund. Last
year, especially, could be noted how difficult
this task was. Even until to-day these
roads are not in a condition which could be
called excellent, though they are very good,
on account of the splendid weather which
we have been enjoying during the month of
Both Dr. Foster and Mr. Gournay are
making a hard fight for the tax and are
both optomistic, although Dr. Foster admit
ted that the people were making it hot for
the tax in his section, on account of certain
restrictions which were not included in the
ordinance adopted a few weeks ago by the
police jury.
The sixth ward is badly in need of bet
ter highways and it is now up to the resi
dents whether or not they will get good
roads. The tax will be a small one
and in a measure will do unbounded good in
that section of St. Landry in the way of
bettering the condition of the roads be
tween here and Eunice, and at the same
time drain the lands adjacent to the public
No one knows better than the people
living in the sixth ward how difficult it was
to make it to town during the months of
September, October, November and Decem
ber. In some places on the road it was
nothing but one continuous mile of mud
holes. What could twelve dollars a mile do
in improving such highways, when the
farmers had to wade to the axle in order to
come to Opelousas, as well as to go to Eu
nice? Surely good roads will not impover
inh those already prospergus farmers.
The question of levying a three mill tax
for five years in the sixth ward for the pur
pose of improving the public roads should
be given due consideration, as that section
of theparish is in dire need of good high
Morals And Manners Not In Educa
tion Now.
Boston, Feb. 10-"The public school is
not producing good morals orgood manners,"
declared Bishop John W. Hamilton, of the
Methodist Episcopal Church, in an address
last night before the Eastern alumni of
Wilbraham Academy.
"The respect that your fathers used to
have for womanhood is not apparent in the
present output of out public schools. The
Roman Catholic Church has better educated
in manners and morals, the children in the
Latin countries than have the public schools
we have today. The greatest problem for
this country is the necessity for an ethical
Mr. Editor: The above clipping con
tains much food for thought Are the con
ditions hinted at by the New England bishop
not unfortunately too prevalent in Louisiana,
in St. Landry? For one thing, are not most
of our young people sadly lacking in good
manners?- Are a majority even civil? Can
they be expected to respect anybody when
they are not even civil? And who is to
blame? The parents, the teachers or the
system? Society, as well as the highest
school authorities, should look carefully into
thequestion . XXXJ
