working is something appalling
These vagrants should be made
move on as fast as they reach
our City. Big strong able
bodied men can be seen hang
ing around the streets of New
Iberia at all hours of^he day.
These people should be made
go to work under any and all
circumstances by the officers
or imprisoned. Hundreds of
them prefer loafing to honest
occupation rather than ac
cept small wages since there
have been a reduction in the
wage scale. How do they live?
Since writing the above we
learn that immediately after
the robbery, Sheriff* Landry's
deputies took his hounds to the
scene and they followed a trail
to the iront of the Catholic
church. There a box was found
in the road, from which it
is presumed the jewelry was re
moved to a buggy, or car which
was afterwards driven off to
some point or other in the
Parish. The next
morning,.
to Loreauville where a street

Sheriff Landry sent his deputies'
fair is in progress as there is a
suspicion the work had been
done by an element who follow
these aggregations. We trust,
Sheriff Landry will run down
the perpetrators of the crime
and that they will, be punished.

•Sheriff Landry will En
force Prohibition Law
Now that the Legislature of
Louisiana has shaped the pro
hibition enforcement law, in
such manner that the Sheriff's
of the State can enforce it,
Sheriff Landry of this Parish
means to do his utmost to run
down all who persist in selling
overnight stuff and bring them
before Court for punishment.
We had intended denting a
little space in this issue to the
flagrant violations on the part
of a few moonshines who have
been selling liquor to minors
which is also a serious offense.
The Sheriff's letter to the public
is a warning that should have its
effect and all who disregard it
and are apprehended will suffer
the consequence. His notice
to the public reads as follows:
"The enforcement of the Vol
tead Act is not in the province
of the Sheriff any more than is
the enforcement of the State
Law in the province of United
States Marshals. For that rea
son I have never sought to ex
The State Law on the subject
ercise authority not given me.
The State Law on the subject
of Prohibition will go into ef
feet on December the 10th.
"It allows the making of wine
end beer in the homes for do
mestic consumption, and that
of bona fide guests, and it al
lows the transportation of legal
ly acquired liquors for personal
use. It prohibits the search of
dwellings without a proper
search warrant. It allows the
search of public places without
warrant.
"The making of alcoholic
liquors, other than stated above
is prohibited as well as the sale
or transportation thereof, and
all persons should be accord
ingly warned.
"I
will endeavor to do my
duty in the enforcement of this
law in accord with its purpose.
It is also the duty of the other
State, Parochial and Municipal
officers and I call on them to
contribute their efforts likewise
to the maintenance of this law.
Persons interested in its en
forcement will be giving aid if
they will advise the Sheriff of
violations of which he is ig
norant; and who when re
quired, will make the necessary
affidavits.
"All persons operating stills,
are warned to desist, and to
destroy the stills.
"Maximum penalty, One
Thousand Dollars and twelve
months imprisonment."

Maximillian Oil Co. to
Resume Active Operation
After a cessation of several
weeks from active boring for oil
oil the Sunirall tract, near the
oil field proper, the stockhold
ers of the Maximillian have
again perfected financial ar
rangements to again begin
work on their uncompleted
Well. This Company had pen
etrated the bowels of the earth,
from what we could ascertain,
to a depth of some thirty-six
hundred feet. At the time they
were compelled to stop opera
tions the driller made a very
good showing, but it was im
possible for the board of direc
tors to continue drilling when
their capital had become ex- j
hausted and all work had to be
abandoned.
This concern have been
patiently endeavoring to get suf
ficient finances to resume the
well again and it will be a source
of gratification to the stock
holders when they learn that
the Company will still advance
into mother earth, looking for
the precious fluid. Due to them

sands of dollars was expended
to no avail. This did not «lis
courage the directors in the
least, as they always felt that
with such a complote drilling
outfit they would sooner or
later be in position to be fi
nanced. From what we were
informed on Thursday morning
it is the intention of the board,
if they do not succeed with this
well, to remove the drilling ap
paratus to a point nearer the
Bernard well and sink another
hole. It is the hope of the cit
izens that the managers of this
Company will be successful be
fore they quit the field, especial
ly when we know that there I»
a lake of the fluid somewhere
in that vicinity. If there were
not, the Bernard well never

which proves, beyond a doubt
there is a quantity of it somo»
