I t'A TKI>. OFFICIAL AND JOURNAL OF IBERIA PARISH TOWN OF NEW IBERIA PI.AOUEMINE LOCKS. Washington, May 27.—Letters, telegrams and resolutions receive«! here from the Third Louisiana Congressional District indicate that the people there have a mis taken idea regarding the work that is going on at the head of Bayou I'laquemiuc on what is known as the Plaquemine locks. The erron eous statement recently made bv a New Orleans newspaper that "the work on the I'laqneiniue locks may be discontinued" lias awakened considerable anxiety. The im pression is abroad in Louisiana that the board now investigating I'laqneiniue locks is tlierc to deter mine whether or not the impor t nut work shall he continued iiikI hat the board is making its iuves igation by direction of Congress. Representative) Broussard of the listriet said to-day that the board (insisting of Col. Ames Stickney, Major Knight and Major Simons, was not in Louisiana to determine whether or not the work on the riaqnemine locks should be aban doned, and that the gentlemen are 11 Louisiana without the authority, sanction or knowledge of Con gress. For some time differences have existed between the local engineer aud the contractors, and these differences have caused a suspen sion of the work. The government wants to complete the work in the period specified by the contract rather than doclare the contract violated when the time limit ex pires and then proceed against the contractors. For this reason the government appointed a commis sion to investigate the differences and report whether the contractors should be put in default now or whether the contentions of tho contractors should be acquiesced in and the department so shape its course as to prosecute the work. There never was, aud there is now no intention to stop tho work. On the contrary, the object of having the commission investigate the work is to expedite it. Mr. Broussard has received from the engineers' department the assurance that the object sought by the formation of the Board of Engineers was to prepare, at the earliest practicable moment, a method of settlement between the government and the contractors regarding claims for work already done, and equitable rates for work yet to be done, by which the work of improvement may be resumed aud continued to cpmpletion with out delay. The main difference relates to the gates and the work connected therewith. The contractors contend that in piliug the dirt in front of the gates they should merely deposit it in the manner in which the machine drops it, the government contend ing that the dirt ßhonld be packed in such manner as is usually done in building levees. The govern ment also insists on some alter ation in the gates themselves, the contractors protest that such alter ations demand additional expenses. These two are the most important differences. "It is evident," said Mr. Brous sard, "that the dirt should be packed, and it is likewise evident that if there be Mditional expenses incurred by the contractors, in all fairness they should be paid for it. Major Âdams, in insisting on the alterations, has at heart the best interests of the government and the people, and the board, consist ing of meu eminent in their pro fession, will no doubt pass upon the justice of the various conten tions. That is their duty and their instruction. "There will, however, be no delay about the project. May, 1903, the time fixed for the termi nation of the contract, will see the opening of the locks. Every dol lar requested by the department has been appropriated, the last appropriation being in the Fifty sixth Congress. This is a conti»« U0U8 project and, even if the funds run short, Congress would doubt le8s respond to any reasonable de mand for additional money to com plete it. There is no necessity for oar people to worry over the mat ter."

Tho following is an oxcert from Ilenry Mayo's splendid paper read before tho Press Association which met at Alexandria recently: I tnke off my hat, Mr. President, to the country editor and his paper. I can feel with him and his institu tion because I have pulled the lever of a Washington hand press on a July afternoon, and mailed the product of tny fertile brain and vivid imagination to several thou sand, more or less, admiring con stituents. There never was a country newspaper which did not represent the best energies of its people. Tue editor is expected to give his own time arid his best enterprise to every institution his town features. He is the master spirit of every movement which tends to the commercial aggrand izement of his territory, and h« is always a prominent aihl a more or less conspicuous object at all so cials, picnics, and ward meetings. He is constantly looking out for the benefit of his fellow-citizens and he gets about as little for the result of his labors as any man in the community. Yet, withal, he smiles in the face of opposition and cheerfully proclaims to the world that his paper and his town are two of tho best products of a kindly providence. Like A ifrowning Van. "Five years ago a diReaso the doctors called dyspepsia took such hold of me that I eould scarcoly ro ," writes Geo. S. Marsh, well-known attorney of Noconn, Tex. "I took quantities of pepsin and other medicines but nothing helped me. As a drowning man grabs at a straw I grabbed at Kodol. I felt an improvement at once and after a few bottles am sound and well." Kodol is tbe only preparation which exactly reproduces tho natural di gestive juices and conséquent ly is tho only one which digests any good food aud cures any form of stomach trouble. Jno. It. Taylor. The merchants' excursion, which passed through, iiero for Texas points from New Orleans, did not stop at any point this side of Crowley. New Iberia felt slighted because the business hunters from the Crescent City did not stop there, and Franklin did not feel it in any way at all because they did not haug up hero, even for a while. In fact we do not care anything about it. If the gentlemen had come here, they would have been royally received aud splendidly entertained, but siuce they did not, we are not going to crack our faces with envy about it. If New Iberia wanted that traiu to stop, why in the devil did they not stop it. The way to do a thing it to do it.— Franklin Watchman.

GOLD FISH IN THE CISTERNS Tho timely application of Dr. Schcppegrell's plan of tho fish rem edy to aid the destruction of mos quitoes carried mo back over sixty years to a time when, as a little boy, I gathered minnows from a mill-race near by and placed them in the "rain barrel," then so com mon among the pioneers of central Ohio, to destroy the wiggletail— the embryo of the pest now so war reil mi—the mosquito. As the scheine worked to perfection then, why not adopt it now by placing gold fish or minnows of any other species in the cisterns! A dozen fish would in a very short time clean up the larvae iu Ihe largest cistern. A little effort and small expense would insure the destruction of tins pest, so far as their propaga tion m the gutters mid ditches is concerned, if each housewife would dash a few spoonfuls of kerosene in tho drain, immediately before she empties her slop bucket, ming ling the two liquids as they journeyed t" the ditch. While wntiiigon the destructive proper ties of kerosene on insect life, it will not seem amiss to give a few pointers as to its influence on vege tation. Along the oil pipe lines from the wells in Pennslyvania leading through Now Jersey, where the pipes are anywhere near the surface, their course is marked by an entire absence of vegetation, the fumes or the escaping oil from the pipes forming Ihe destructive principle If it could bearrangedto render one or more of our drainage canals entirely dry for a few days, and while dry, empty a generous supply of crude coal oil among the liliies, so penetrating and destruc tive would this fluid bo that neither lily or mosquito would ever find a home there.—nV. />. Ingham in N. O. Picayune. We should think that the remedy was as bad as the disease, for with fish in the cistern it would even tually become foul from the fish. The kerosene remedy, is the best and within reach of all and ought to be applied generally. Cures II hen I tor tors Fail. Mrs. Frank Chiasson, Patterson, La., writes June Hth, 1901: "I had malaria fover in very bad form, was under treat ment by doctors, but as soon as I stopped taking their mediciuo tho fever would re turn. I used a sample bottle of Herbine, fonnd it helped me. Then bought two bottles, which completely cured me. I feel grateful to you for furnishing such a splendid medicine, and can honeBtly rec ommend it tothoso suffering from malaria, as it will surely cure them." Herbine, 50c battle at Estorgo Drug Co. AN EDITOR IN TROUBLE. One of the most inhuman out rages in the annals of crime was perpetrated on the editor of the Chronicle while at Stuttgart last Wednesday night. After he had retired for the night two frolic some young girls procured his pantaloons, sewed up the bottom of the legs, threw the doctored garments back through the tran Bome atidsquealed "fire!" Ile, of course, got up, rushed oat of the room, and while vainly trying to stab one foot through the limb of his obstinate pantaloons, joined in the cry of fire, Being somewhat excited he did not tumble, as it were, until one of the girls played what are tho wild waves saying! up aud down his spinal column with a Babcock fire extinguisher. As he staggered into his room he could hear the audience outside in their wild and tumultuous, but he refused to come before the cur tain again, but locked his door and sobbed himself to sleep. How often do we forget the finer feel ings of others and ignore their sor row, while we revel in great joy.— Clarendon (Ark.) Chronicle. Spring Ailments. There is an aching and tired feeling; tho liver, bowels and kidneys become sluggish an inactive, tho digestion im paired, with little or no appetite, no am bition for anything, and a feeling that the whole body and mind needs toning up. The trouble is, that during winter, there has been an accumulation of waste matter in the system. Herbine will remove it, secure to the secretions a right exit, and by its tonic effect, fully restore the wasted tissues and give strength in place of weak ness. 50c at Estorge Drug Co. N. 0. ICE TRUST. While the people of New Or leans are paying 30 and 40 cents per hundred pounds for ice, the ice trust, so it is charged, is shipping it to Thibodeaux and selling it for fifteen cents per hnndred. Not that the trust desires to favor the people of that town, but for the purpose of seeking revenge on the ico factory of that place, which dares to "beard the lion in its den," aud ship ice to New Orleans for a suffering community. The Thibodeaux Ice Company declares that "patience has ceased to be a virtue," and it proposes to ship ice to New Orleans as long as it has a surplus over and above the amont of home consumption. The story of the ice trust sending carloads to Thibodeaux and selling it for fifteen cents gives the public an intimation of what it desires to accomplish in the way of forcing not only every retail dealer in New Orleans out of business, but com pelling every other factory iu this city, this State and in adjoining States, to "keep out." The trust even went so far as to send an agent to Thibodeaux for the pur pose of telling the ice people there that they should stop sending ice to New Orleans. • • • Oity Item . BAYOU PLA0UEMINE. Tho following from the New Or leans Item shows how the move ment inaugurated by the Progress ive League of this town is advanc ing. Mr. McMahon, the President roused up the whole country by telegraph and telephone, urging the citizens to the course pursued. It was natural that the (jueen City of the Teche should take the initiative, and right nobly have the towns along the line responded. Tho Plaquemine locks will be al lowed to accomplish the object for which they were intended, addi tional and competitive transporta tion for our vast commerce : Tho citizens of Franklin and vicinity have petitioned the Leg islature to niemoralize Congress to continue the work of opening Bayou Plaquemine by placing locks therein. A special board of United States engineers has been examining the work which is Hear ing completion, and on their re ports hangs the probability of the continuance or discontinuance of this mammoth enterprise. There seems to be a pressure brought to bear from some source against the, opening of this waterway and un 1 less a determined move is madt i to have the work continued the ! board of engineers may advise otherwise. Senator Caffery in 1897 obtained j an appropriation of $1,970,090 for tbe purpose of connecting Bayou Plaquemine with the Mississippi river by locks and to improve the waterways connecting Grand I,ake with Bayou Plaquemine. The contract shortly aftor this appro priation to construct Co., for about $800,000. The The work was to be doue according to plans and specifications of Major (juinn, the United States eugineor in charge of the District of Louisiana. The work was practically completed in 1899, after which Major Qniun was transferred to another department and his place was filled by Major Adams, and nothing since has been done to the locks. It is said that nothing is now needed to complete tho work except the hanging of the gates. When completed it will save tho people of this section not less than $2,000 000 annually. Such is the esti mate made by Capt. K. T. King of New Iberia. This saving would be in consequence of the better facilities offered the sugar planters and farmers, especially during the grinding season, when it is difficult to obtain cars to haul cane and other freights. It is fearod that the obstruction in the way of com pleting this important work upon which the government has already expended so much money is due to railroad rivalry. If such is the case our Representatives in Con gress should see to it that the requisite appropriation is made in the rivers and harbors bill. The people along the Teche are up in arms about this Bubject and meet ings are being had all along the water courses to urge upon the Legislature and upon Congress a completion of the work which has already involved such an expense to the government. Dangerous if Neglected. Burns, cuts and other wounds often fail to heal properly if neglected and becomo troublosome sores. De Witt' s Witch Hazel Salve prevents such consequences. Even where delay has aggravated the injury De Witt's Witch Hatel Salve effects a cure. "I had a running sore on my leg thirty years," says H. C. Ilartly, Yankeetown, Ind. "After using many remedies, I tried De Witt' s Witoh Hazel Salve. A few boxes healed the sore." Cures all akin diseases. Piles yield to it at once. Beware of coun terfeits. Jno. R. Taylor. In Vienna every man's home is his dungeon from 10 p. m. to 6 a. m. Vienna is a city of flats, and at 10 p. m. the common entrance door of each block iB closed and bolted. Thereafter persons pass ing in or out must pay a fine of 2d to the conolerge until midnight, and 4d from that hour to 6 a. m. To go out to posta letter costs 2d, and the same amount to return. To prolong a visit to a friend after 10 m. means 2d to get out of his house and 2d more to enter your own. A natural reBult of this ir ritating tax is that of all capital cities Vienna is earliest to bed.

This negro (Barnetl) is not dif ferent from all other negroes ofal leged intelligence. They fulminate noisily against lynching, buf-uever denounce tho crime which provokes lynchings or the men of I heir ruco who commit that, crime. In their minds the only wrong done is iu the lynching, and, therefore, they really become defenders of the black brutes who criminally as sault white women and iri , often adding the crime of murder to tho crime of rape. So long as negroes are guilty of uch an atrocious crime there will I lynch ings. Instead of DtgTOM of I5ar nott's class advising their 1--ice to "forcibly revolt against lynch law." which really is advising a war against the white.-;, tliey should denounce the crime that, is respon sible for nearly all the lynchings of negroes in this country, and warn their people against, it. It is not the part of wisdom for them to "revolt," because, if tliey do, it will mean the end of the negro race on thoAmeriean continent. — ,N. O. ffaihi Stales. A TEX As" WONDER.
