HOOD, Editor and Manager. .,.AND JURY REPORT. In this issue of the Journal Dr. Coop. ar, president of the police jury, takes exception to a part of the report of the grand jury recently made. It will be ri . aembered that the grand jury in Its re port charged that the police jury had .ot used the facilities at its command to provide proper drainage of the roads inder its supervision, P. This language may be susceptible of being a charge of either a misappropri ition of pub!ic funds or la violation of official duty. In either case this is rath. er a grave charge coming from the grand jury an' it is but natral that the polIce jury should resent the charge. It is unfortunate that the grand jury thould have let their report take this Form. If it was really lits finding that the police jury has misappropriated public funds or are guilty of officiol mis. onduct they shoul i have been indicted by the grand jury promptly. If the ac. Cusation is not true then lin that case the charge is grossly improper. In eith ir event this particular part of their re port can har, ly he defended. The Jour. mal does not happen to have a personal !amilliarity with all the public roads of this parish to such an extent that it is prepared to pa-s upon the question of prope(r drainage, by p elr sonal knowledge but we do know several members of the Police Jury and we believe in the absolute integrity of these men. There has been a very marked sentiment all over the parish favorable to the official conduct of the Police Jury anl we are inclined to the pinion that the general public will share the views expressed by Dr Cooper. GENERAL ELECTION NEXT TUESDAY F The primary election law has practic. ily eliminated all interest in the ger. ,ral election in most sections of the South where there is only one party. For this reason the vote in the get . oral election is usually light. This year in this District there are t wo par ties represented. For Congressman lon. L. Lazaro, the Democratic N< m. inee and Hon. W. F. Dietz, the So:ialist Nominee. While it is not probab;e that the Socialists have enough followm; to ipproach any ways near the Democi at. Ic vote yet it behooves every D mo _rat to go to the polls and vote. T'here will no doubt be polled the full strength ,f the Socialist party. The prnposed Constitutional Amend. nents are also to he voted upon and many of fhese are of importance so that it is hoped that a full vote will be polled next Tuesday. 'HE CONSTlIL'iGONAL AM ENDMENTS. Next Tuesday the electorate of the State will be called upon to vote either for or against the seventeen ('onstitu tional Amendments proposed by the ast General Assembly. Of these sev. wteen there are five which are purely local in their nature and which do no, afllect this Parish at all. This leave: twelve which are of generalinterer: and the Journal in this issue reproduc - these twelve Amendments. We call the attention of the voters to these Amendments in order that you ma, vote intelligently next Tuesday. We think these proposed Amendments art of sufficient importance to warrant a areful reading and we submit the same in this issue for your considera tion. CHARACTER.

RICE ASSOCIATION WEEKLY LETTER, Beaumont, Texas, Oct.27.-That the general level of rough rice prices i' holding up to the level that has beer maintained for several weeks and that farmers are still holding steadilyis in. dicated by the sales of rough in Louis. iana, Texas and Arkansas last week The sales by the Southern Rice Grow ers Association averaged about 5,040 a day until Saturday, when the aggre gate of the sales rose to 17,727 sacks ii the three states. It is estimated that the sales outside the association werc somewhat in excess of the association sales and the prices were on a some. what lower basis, but non.associatioz farmers are still, as a rule, holding strongly for the association values. The prices paid during the week werr on a basis of from $3.40 to $3.50 a barre for Blue Rose; from $3.10 to $3.25 foi Japan and there was not enough Hlon duras sold to indicate a basis. The high sales of Blue Rose made on Sat it day were at Lake Charles, La. where $3.40 a barrel was paid. High sales ( Japan were at Iowa, La., where $3.21 was paid for 40-pound No. 2. no Hondul as was sold by the association on tie coast and only one lot of 500 sacks ,wrs sold in Arkansas. At Crowley, La. 4,363 sacks of Bire Rose were sold; at Lake Charles, 2,20r sacks of Blue Rose; at Jennings, La. 2,285 sacks of Japan; at Iota, 1,349 sael:s of Blue Rose and 940 s: cks of Japan; at Iowa, La. 1,340 sacks oi Japan. At Beaumont the association sold 2Z( sacks of Blue Rose and 250 sacks , Japan; at Bay City, 1,800 sacks of Blue Rose; at Orange, 700 racks of Japan. The total sales ,n Arkansas were 2 sacks of Blue Rose and 500 sacks tl Japan, Movement of clean rice continues P be confined to nearby requirement' and the trade is disposed to seek con tinually for lower prices, influenced by the fear that prices will drop. Distri butors are waiting for some evidence that a basis of value has been reached, and the tenor of New York advices is that the trade is awaiting the outcome uf the holding movement in the south. Weak holders of rough rice are gradu. ally disposing of their rice, the Blue Rose going flrst and the Japan being next in favor, with almost no move iwent of Honduras. - - ~ r,- a" " ý ' Iwa,, . .
