official journal of iberia parish
and town of new iberia.
On Monday last, the .Supreme
Court of the State, in passing upon
the motion,on behalf of the city, for
a rehearing in the case of the City of
New Iberia vs. Miss Harriet Weeks
et als, involving the right of the
city to compel property holders to
bear the expense of sidewalk con
struction along their property, ren
dered a decision, the effect of which
compels thewity to liegiu legal pro
ceedings anew if it should desire to
obtain a final opinion from the
Court upon the merits of the points
This, however is not necessary
from the fact that the amount due
by defendants has been collected
by the city, and it is very clear
from the languiige of the Supreme
Court that if the question ever
comes up in proper form before
that tribunal for adjudication the
decision will be in line with others
on this subject, recognizing the
right of nil cities, who make proper
provision in their charters, to com
pel not only sidewalk building, but
street paving likewise. Under our
present cumbersome and unequal
system of taxation, it is the only
way i:. which growing cities can
make themselves worthy the name
Their ordinary revenues are insuf
ficient to carry out these improve
uients ; and left to the voluntary
option of property holders, we all
know what the result would be.
It will be remembered that the
reason of an adverse decision from
the Supreme Court, when the case
was taken up ou appeal, a few weeks
ago, was due to the fact that the
ago, was due to the fact that the
complete charter of the city, intro
duced in the lower court, and form
ing part of the record, was omitted
when the transcript was made up
for the Supreme Court. It was
held that the Council could not en
force such an ordinance uuless it
first derived the right to pass it
from the city charter ; and not hav
ing before it that portiou of the
charter conferring that right, but
only an amended portion of it, the
Court rendered an opiuion adverse
to the oity.
On rehearing, the Court refuses
to reopen the case and renders judg
ment as in case of non-suit, giving
the city the option to begin the
action over as though the case had
never been tried. But as stated
above, the city having already re
covered from the defendants the
cost of the sidewalk in controversy,
it can rest the case where it is, and
go on with its work of sidewalk
improvement, confident from the
Court's opinions that if it is ever
called upon again to pass upon the
rights of the city in the premises,
the case being fully presented, as
it must be, there will be no doubt
as to the outcome.
Let as unite in the hope that
there will be no farther controversy
over this matter, and that all will
cheerfully accept the mandate of the
law, recognizing its beneficial in
fluence in the improvement of the
city and the numerous advantages
flowing therefrom.

a hotel for new iberia.
In the commercial world the law
of snpply and demand is every were
recognized. In New Iberia we have
the most convincing evidence of a
demand for a first - class hotel . I say
first-class, for this is the only kind
which will All all the requirements
and accomplish for the town what
is demanded. A canvas of the board
ing houses and hotels in town
would convince any enquirer on
this subject. It is a common ex
erience for strangers to go from
louse to house inquiring for ac
commodations to find every desira
ble or even available place full.
Now with a typical Southern
hotel with spacious rooms, wide
halls, plenty of gallery room, a
parlor urge enough for social func
tions, New Iberia could bid for a
fair proportion of northern visitors
to New Orleans after Carnival sea
son. Many who come at this sea
son do not ear« to return to their
northern homes until mild weather
sets in—say the first of May, and
they look about for a pleasant place
to pass the intervening time where
board is something lower than in a
crowded city, which during the
Lenten season holds fewer attrac
The fame of the Teche country is
world wide not only through song
and story, but because it is really
the Garden spot of the Southland.
An enthusiastic visitor to New Ibe
ria (at that enchanting season—the
th of April, when every tree '
canopy of living green and e'
shrub in gorgeous bloom—the air
fragrant with the incense of sweet
flowers, when the birds give free
concerts all day and chant lullabies
at night,) said: "April here is
Heaven." If this is wide of the
mark it is not the fault of mother
nature ; but of man who is oontent
for the most part with nature's
bounty and gives grudgingly the
small rata» which she demands.
There la a rumor of a hold project
in New Iberia; let as hope it is
more than a rumor and that the
plan will be all that ia demanded—
spacious, b re sa y , beautiful in design
and finish, a «redit and an ornament
to the town and a source of wealth
to us f r< ; ,note y«-,
j reason to hope that many

of these
northern visitors may become per
manent residents here or may build
winter homes. In either ease they
will bring a new und much coveted
element into the community.
South Louisiana has this advant
age of Klordia as a winter resort :
the season is from four to six weeks
longer, as our summer does not
really begin before the last of May
or first of June, while Florida be
comes very hot in April.
