The message is very long, eottnprising some 20,000 words, but not any longer than the im portance ot good old Louisiana warrants The governor's literary stile hears some resemblance to that of the late drover Cleveland's. The governor vindicates Hon. Alatlin Vincent by making a spe cial feature of the discussion of trusts which, lit; said, were "menacing ami oppressive com biuutions." He pointed out the fact that they had grown greatly in scope, power and number since the last session of the general as sembly, and advised the remodel ing of those laws to restrain the trusts which have been rendered inoperative by the decisions of federal courts. He advocated that "early and serious attention" be paid to this subject. The great and growing prosperity of the state was much commented upon, as well as the growth iti im porlance and in commerce of the metropolis, Nevv Orleans. In point ing out the growth <>t' the stnte he used the figures of the census of 1HH0, which gave the stnte the pop ulation of 1,11S.5S7, to compare with 1 ,.*Î81 ,G25 in 11)00. As a proof of the growing pros perity of the people of the whole state he called attention to the fact that thirty state banks have beeu organized since 1899 ; that the state assessments show an increase of $24,525,815 over 1900, which was the largest in the history of the state; an increase of $17,813,000 by parishes and $<i,741,000 by New Orleans, giving the state an alimony of $1,661,520. The public health he spoke of as being in a most satisfactory condi tion, aud he complimented the State Hoard of Health on its work. — Daily American . i ht Hffi ' Dttts if xei/ lertr ( t .

GRAPHIC NARRATIVE OP THE TINIQUE CALAMITY. MAR New York, May 13.— James Tay lor, who was one of the officers of the Koraima, the Quebec line steamship which was destroyed in the harbor of St. Pierre, gives a graphic Btory of the tragedy of last Thursday, says a dispatch to the Herald from St. Kitts, Island of St Christopher, B. W. I. We experienced the greatest difficulty in getting into port," said he. "Appalling sounds were issuing from the mountain's behind the town, which was shrouded in darkness. "All the passengers were up and some were trying to obtain photo graphs. Suddenly I heard a tremend ous explosion. Ashes began to fall thicker upou the deck, and I could see a black cloud sweeping down upon us. "I dived below and, dragging with me Samuel Thomas, a gang way man and fellow-countryman, sprang into a room, shutting the door to keep out the heat that wbb already unbearable. "The ship rocked, and I ex pected every moment that it would sink. Outside I heard a voice pleading for the door to be opened. It was Scott, the first officer, and I opened the door and dragged him iuto the room. "It soon became unbearably hot, and 1 went on deck. All about were lyiug the dead and the dying. Little children were moaning for water. I did what I could for them. "I obtained water, but when it was held to their swollen lips they were unable to swallow, because of the ashes which clogged their throats. "One little chap took water in this method and rinsed out the ashes, but even then could not swallow, so badly waB his throat burned, tie sank back unconsci ous and a few minutes later was dead. "All aft the ship was fire, and from the land came draughts of terrible heat. At last, when could stand it no longer, I sprang over-board. The water was hot enongh to parboil me, bnt a wave soon swept from the ocean, bring ing with it cool water. was caught in the receding wave, which was of tidal velocity, and was carried out to sea. Then on the second return of the wave I was washed against au upturned sloop, to which I clung. "A few minutes later I was joined by another man, whom I learned was Capt. Muggah, of the Roraima. He was in dreadful agony and kept begging piteously to be put on board his ship. "Picking up some wreckage and a tool chest I aud five others who joined me succeeded in forming a rude raft, on which we placed the captain. "Seeing an upturned boat, asked one of the five to swim oat to it and bring it over so that Capt Muggan might have an opportunity to life. ' "The man succeeded in getting the boat righted, but instead of ro tnrning, he picked up two of his country-men and went away in the direction of Fort de France. "Seeing the Koddam, which had arrived in port soon after we an chored, making for the Koraima, 1 said good-bye to ('apt. Muggali and swam to the Koddam "Before I could reach her she burst into Maines und put out to sea. I finally reached the Koraima about half-past 2 o'clock in the afternoon, and later whs taken off by the cruiser Suchet."

Mrs. Carrie Her spool, who teaches a Sunday school class in the First Presbyterian church here, was told by some boys in her class that Dewey's tars were served liquor during the battle. She wrote to the Admiral aud re ceived the following reply : "Dear Madam : Acknowledging the receipt of your letter of the 22»1 ult. I am very glad to have the op portunity of correcting the im pression which you say prevails among your Sunday Bchool schol ars that the men of my fleet were given liquor overy twenty minutes during the battle of Manila bay. "As a matter of fact, every par ticipant from myself down fought the battle of Manila bay ou coffee alone. "The United States forbid taking liquor aboard the ship except for medical uses and we had no liquor that we could have given the men, even had it been desired to do so. Very truly yours, G eorge D ewey." For Those ii ho Live on Far tun.
