LOCAL NEWS.
— Mr. Leiautl Ilutiie, assistant
geueral manager of the Cumber
land Telephone Co., seems to be
losing his temper in the face of
competition. In a recent letter to
the Vindicator-News of Franklin he
ventures the statement "that two
telephone systems in the same city
do not, and never will give satisfac
tion to the public, for the simple
reason that the services rendered
require centralization." It must
have been that the Cumberland was
acting upon this hypothesis when,
without notice, it attempted to raise
its rates iu New Iberia from $1.50
to $2.50. Brtt it was just then that
it was demonstrated that two com
panies could at least exist in the
same city and give satisfaction, as
both seem to be doing iu New Ibe
ria to-day. The independent com
panies are holding their own all
over the United States; they are a
cheek upon the monopolistic advo
cates of the telephone service; the
people know it, and will continue
to encourage competition.
Three or four gentlemen can get

—The committee appointed by
the Police Jury to secure bids for a
new jail, submitted their report to

the acceptance of the plans and bid
of (lie Dicbold Safe Co. The other

The Jury adopted the report of its
committee and the new jail will be
built at a cost of about $20,000.
It will be modern in every respect.

—On Friday evening the Meth
odist church had a narrow escape
.from damage by fire. Pastor
Vaughn was engaged lighting a
cluster of coal oil lamps and had
lighted one of them when the rope
that operated the pully broke and
the lamps dropped to the floor, ig
niting and creating a blaze that
threatened destruction. Fortunate
ly blankets were promptly secured
and the flames smothered, before
damage was doue by either fire or
water. Work had been procediug
during the day preparatory to light
ing the church by electricity, and
was only within a few hours of
completion. Coal oil lamps are a
risky substitute for electricty. All
do away with them and patronize
your own electric light plant.

haudsome saddle, was won by Mr.
Frank Bridgera. The second prize,
the waterproof lap-robe, was alloted
to Mr. Clarence Duperier. The
third prize, the beautiful white
bnggy whip, fell to Mr. Michel Ko
mero. The base ball match was in
terfered with by the rain, but after
ward resumed, resulting in a tie
score between the Up-Towns and the
Dowu-Town8. The first prize of the
Iberia Gun Club was won by Mr.
A. Cousin. This was a solid
gold cartidge. The second prize, a
beautiful rilver cup, became the

prize. The ball at night at the City

not returns about $225.
