Then it is but n question of time
nnd is within the plnns of the pro
jectors lo extend these lines east
and west, into the parish of St.
Mary, touching the towns between
here and Herwiek Hny, nnd to the
west in the parishes of St. Martin
nnd Lafayette, making a summer
nnd winter resort of our beautiful
Lake Tasse, and also putting our
city in touch with the other towns
nlong the route. This is nil practi
onl nnd easy of accomplishment nnd
the population along the proposed
routes dense enough to justify the
outlay of capital. Throughout the
North nnd East lines such as are
lioro contemplated nre already pny
ing investments, with n populntion
of less density than ours, therefore
it would seem that our lines as
contemplated will be a success from
the very start. We trust our citi

forward the laudable efforts of
these gentlemen and that ere the
dying of the present year we shall
sec the great work under way.

Concluding a strong reply to a
captious interrogator of the "What
is it" variety of newspapers, the
Commercial Appeal of Memphis
thus states the contrast between
Republicanism and Democracy :
"The Republican party repre
sents pretty nearly every coticeiv
able vicious tendency in American
life. It stands for extravagance
for the trusts, for the tariff rob
bery, the ship subsidy steal, and it
stands for nothing in the interest
of the people. The Democratic
lenders may be wastiug valuable
time on ghostly issues and shadowy
notions, but there can be no doubt
that the Democracy stands for
what the Republican party does
not. It stands for tariff reform,
economy, honesty, aud the people.
Some of our leaders may forget the
creed at times aud some may chase
will-o'-the-wisps, but in standing
for all that the Republican party
does not, the Democracy leaves but
little doubt in the minds of its fol
lowers as to what it is. It is only
the renegades from the party who
•re continually asking the ques
tion, what is Democracy T"
The contrast here presented
could scarcely be improved upon
for clearness and conciseness.
When we look at the Republican
party of to-day witli its profligacy
and its riotous disregard of the in
terests and rights of the masses,
with its trnst-breeding tendencies
and its love, "surpassing that of
women," for the gigauticcombina
tions formed for the oppression of
the people and for wringing the
hard earnings from the pockets of
the consumer for the benefit of the
trusts aud favored classes, it seems
almost sufficient to say that the
Democracy "stands for all the Re
publican party does not." * 1

of the party, whose testimony ns

During the week there was de
cided irregularity of demand and
ultra-conservatism maintains. This
experience is seasonable, the trade
in m id -su m m et- naturally inclines
to limited operations and prefer to
buy in moderate way and at shorter
intervals, thereby securing more
recent or freshly milled stock. No
one at this period can be ablivious
to the destructive tandem trio
weather, weevil and worm: thus
far however, little complaint has
been heard on such score and the
present like the past season, is
likely to find goods carryiug in
safety to the end. Recent advances
in Japan have cheeked its sale, nnd
while still in the lead, it finds a
close second in the Honduras sorts.
Advices from the South note
steady but limited enquiry along
the Atlantic Coast. In New Or
leans and at interior points, there
has been a quickened movement.
A firm front is maintained in the
matter of prices, but holders appear
to be a bit less confident and more
disposed to cultivate the buyer.
Although no large arrivals of new
crop are due for a month, still with
the hot sun where moisture has
been ample the growth has pro
gressed rapidly, and from such lo
calities may como an early supply.
Several small parcels have been re
ceived during the past week, and
the moral effect of their arrival
tends to make sellers pliable and
on the other hand, buyers cautions.

it would be a great ltiistako to sup
pose that because the Hoers were
unable |o attain their end by force
of arms, they are not going to try
to attain it by constitutional means
if they can.
This means is al their disposal,
and the famous Afrikander Hund,
which is slill more alive than ever,
is going to place it nt their disposal.
It is now the Knglish who have to
face the situation which the Hoers
hail to face before the declaration
of war. The Knglish had demand
ed the franchise for the Hit landers.
The Hoers refused because, by ac
ceding to such ii request, the Boer
element would liuve been swnmped
by the Knglish in the Bond, or
Transvaal parliament.
Todny the Afrikander Hund is so
organized that it will cause the
Cape parliament to have au im

Some people think that the posi

is a sign of farsighted wisdom, but
others fenr that the Afrikander
bund will again get the upper hand
and govern South Africa for the
sake of the Dutch.
My personal idea is that Mr.
Chamberlain's idea probably is to
meet the immediate desirability of
the Capo government passing cer
tain measures, such as the indem
nity bill. If these measures are
not passed he threatens to have thei
constitution suspended. This may
have a quieting effect on the Afri
kander bund, but only for a time
It will be like playing a game of
chess, in which the bund will be
given up a good "man" for sake of
expediency, and with the ultimate
intention of check-mating the very
following session. For the pre
sent we must admire the English
government for not profiting by
their victory to govern Africa for
the benefit of England.

Dear Sir:—I agtiiu notice for the
second time. In the Collums of the
last Edition of yonr Paper; That
supposed to be communicated Col
loquy between Bill and Jack.
Which I was informed by reliable
Parties that the Demon object
sought by the Colloquy Writer in
his Ignorant form to insuate upon
me. Because Im promoting a good
cause. However I had came to the
conclusion to iguore same, and
treat same with Silence and con
sign same to the waste Basket, to
place the instinct of the Colloquy
writer among tho oblivion, where
it should be cast, upon its de
moniac design, not with standing
this fact, after reconsidering the
matter carefully for tho second
time I again nrrive to another con
clusion That I would commit a rape
upon iny conscience, and man-hood
If I didnot uphold its natural dic
tate by complying with tho proper
answer which would meet the in
stinct of the Colloquy writer as lie
deserve although after reading an
article in a colloquy form of mild
Lunacy. Who only aspiration of
the Colloquy writer is an Interdic
tion to the State Asylum at Jack
son, La., where he should have been
consigned with his demon ambition
to use his endavors to destroy the
value of Human testimony. So
under these above mention circum
stances. I will therefore confine
myself to treat of the article, and
the Writer of the above mention
Colloquy in its sarcastic form is
trying to parsuade the uitelegent
mind of the good People of this
commuuity to believe that Im the
organ or in other word the Leader
or the Agent of the Labor union of
this City. I deny same in the most
emphatic term. Im simply sym
pathizing in their rightful cause.
Now as to the writer of the Collo
quy feeling assured or am more
than confident that Im not a judge
of Human nature from a point of
cycology he certainly must be a
peculiar frame of man. Which I
beg from his demon expressions in
his Colloquy, tho entire community
of New Iberia will judge bim ac
cording to his merit in writing an
article with a demon intention in a
Colloquy form written by him in
order to avoid the responsibility of
his ignorance which he would
otherwise assume as a man by
writing an article and afixing his
signature to it and let the good
fair Minded People of New Iberia
pass upon the merits of his article
if there is any to be found in his
evil inclination. From as a broad
logical views as my intellectual
ability will permit me to pass npon
the chief aim of hit endeavors it is
to criticise me because Im syrapa
thizeing in behalf of a good cause,
and to use his ignorant endavors to
down fall a Body of men who are
Law abideing citizens of this com
munity and who have the interest
and welfare of our progressive
little city at heart, and who have
organized themselves to stand to
gather, and striv# for the welfare
their community hand in hand.
Gentle Readers you will Pardon
me when I mention the fact the
I deeply nimrcciatn (lie fnet tlint it
1,1 t' sl l'»bor federation has
Ignorant Writer of the Colloquy,
as you are the Judges of same, and
I deeply appreciate the fact that it
take the Power of Hrains to bo
capable to Recognize I 'rains so I
will leave that for you to pass upon
its merits, and give him his just
dues in accordance with his work.
And you will also take the fact in
consideration That the Writer of
the Colloquy has shift from the
Responsibilities of Iiis article by
not appending his signature to as- '
siunc the tesponsibility of same
So far as upon the merit of my
article. Im more than willing to
rest its equity, and merit with you
to pass upon same the Cond People
of this community to be the judges
of same. I Peg that you will no
lice tin 1 difference between this
\rtiele and the Other Article!
which was written by the union In
which I simply assisted in writing!
the other articles as each member
of the union Ideas and suggestion
was represented in I he other art teles j
as it was signed in the form Official
Capacity of the union, so this arti
