—■Our attention lias again been called to the manner in which a num ber of our people drive their steeds 011 oor Main street. Almost any evening can be seen rapid driving, contrary to the Oity ordinance. It seems strange that with the abundance of Police Of oeiu that New Iberia boasts of, seldom arrests are made for the violations of this ordinance. In some instances ar rests are made of oue or Jwo parties on the slightest pretext, for other sup posed violations of City ordinances, as happened this week, when a party was incarcerated in jail for nearly fourteen hours, and when brought be fore the City Court, Judge Brown promptly discharged the accused, as there was no evidence to show that the party was guilty. Such practices on the part of the Chief, should at once be checked by the Mayor, and the ordinance repealed which gives to the officer making arrests 011e dollar. If officers cannot be dejHiiided uikjii to do their sworn duty without, being compensated 011 the side they had bet ter be removed at once. Don't be Afraid T o tryto secure h borne.

The game which eonnted roost to decide to whom would get the pennant. We are sorry that our team should have grown so suddenly weak, and sllowing such a score to pile np against her. Of course Plaquemine is entitled to the pennant, which will be decided as soon as the com mittee will meet. We nnderstaud that although the League has disbanded, that six or seven of onr team intend re maining here and with the assis tance of some local players carry on a series of garne^, but we don 't think it will be a payiug invest ment as there will be no enthusi asm of the public. Professional ball is alright, when condneted on sonnd principles, when the public are counted for something, and especially when the crowd hsve some interest iu a home team iu which they are directly interested, finsncislly or otberwiie. When the base ball lovers want to have a team that respects its supporters enongh to st lesst put np a good stiff game to win the pennant, which is in its grasp they are entitled to the sup port of the people. Our team has beeu carried under heavy expense and the public contributed liberally towards its maintaiuauce aud it is uo more than a just icward that under such easy conditions that the pnblic expected different retprns. Although onr team has given us some good ball, most of the good games were won on home ground but we did not get a sufficient num ber. Some ask why do you expect differeut results.

Mr. Perkins did not put Batson back in his cell, but kept him in another part of the jail under the personal supervision of Deputy D. 0. Lyons.

Daily declared that he aloin* had entered the jail inclosnre, and that the Bonner brothers knew nothing about the matter. He said someone called to him from the jail window for some cigarette pupers and that he tied some to the string without thinking of what the consequences might be. There were no cigarette papers found in Batson'» cell. Batson declines to say how he secured the cord. Ilesaid he used it in his fishing expedition, and corroborates the story of Daily as to the cigarettes.
