THE RING CAlDIDATE.
Mr. Boatner has been charged by
the King men with being the ring i
candidate, and much of the oppo
sition to him is based on that
ground. The TI.MES is not posted
thoroughly iii other parishes, but
if the King men in the district are
as vigorous in imagination as many
of them in this parish are, there is
nothing surprising in the asertion.
Facts are merely incidents in the
politics of the leading King men in
this parish, and they are not essen
tial to the starting of a report. Not
a solitary fact is given in support
of the statement that Mr. Boatner
is supported by the ring, and the
reason for this is, that there are no
facts to be given in support of such
a charge. The ring or the admin
istration, which, is what is meant
by the ring, as far as can be dis
covered has been entirely neutral
in this matter but the King men,
and the King papers chirp on, just
as persistently as if the adminis
tration really was supporting Mr.
Bgatner, and they knew it to be a
fact. Mr. Boatner is supported by
brains, and Mr. Kingby gas, that's
the whole secret. Don't give it
R1 FUTURE COSIDUaATIOI.
The charges made by the TIMES
against Mr. Crandell's politics
have not been denied. Just after
the election last Spring the same
charges were made and the TIMES
was prepared then as it is now, to I
substantiate them. There can be
only one conclusion drawn, which
is that they are unanswerable, and
are facts. This being the case I
those of the people of Madison
Parish who ever do any thinking,
can profitably think this matter

The AseempIahed Detestive ad the
It was night-night before last.
Midnight had just pealed from a
hundred city towers. An electric i
light burned dimly in a wretched
cabaret on the corner of University I
Place and Eighth street. At a nar
row table two men were seated en
gaged in eager conversation. A I
bottle and two glasses were be- I
tween them. The bottle was part.I
ly empty. So were the glasses. I
So were the men. The bartender I
was reading "Mother Cary's Dream
Book." The conversation be
tween the men grew more eager
and animated. At this juncture
an observer might have seen a face
peer over the shutters. A moment I
later the door opened and a stran
ger entered. It is dnnecessary to I
say that with one swift, sweeping,
comprehensive searching glance he
took in every feature of the room,
for it was detective J. D. Larkin,
of the New York Hotel.
The detective entered noiseless
ly and glanced in
THE DIRECTION or THE TWO MEN,
who still conversed, with the un
resisting bottle and the two glass
es between them. Then he took a
slip cut from a newspaper from his
pocket, and read as follows:

self, as he replaced the slip in his
pocket-book, "I have aclew."
The bar-tender overheard him.
"You had better heep it," said
thecoarse man. "It is going to
be a hard winter."

ed eonversatin. Gradually he
inserted himself into the conversa- I
tion, which ran on the question of (
St. John's majority in ]ovember.
Adroitly the detective taurned it to I
the theme of roblbery and crime. J
The two men moved uneasily in i
their chairs. Without seeming to I
be aware of their discomfiture the I
detective watched them narrowly,
while he atfected to busy himself 1
with a beer bottle. Suddenly he E
said: "I will tell you a story." 1
The two men looked relieved. t
"On last Tuesday," began the E
detective, "some persons who wnere C
putting up at the New York Hotel
went out shopping. They shop
ped all the afternoon. At Tiffany's
Sthey purchased a magnificent
t cluster diamond ring and five
d smaller rings."
t The detective stopped suddenly
.,to note the effect of his words.
One of the men seemed much
il agitated. The other was hardly
less so. The beer bottle was per.
ie fectly cool. The detective found
that the beer was a trifle warm.
"With these rings in a package,"
he continued, "they started to
ward the hotel. At Mercer street
and Waverly place they stopped
to wonder at

The detective paused again, and
then added suddenly: "Twomen

The men who sat at the table
a started so violently as to agitate
the beer bottle. The detective
' eyed them narrowly. The bar
it tender was asleep. Not a sound
was heard but the ominous ticking
of the clock and the snoring of a
gentleman in the family entrance.
The detective again proceeded

"Good morning, Dilly Flore~neL

minute, Mr. R,"porttr." Such
were the greetings being bestowed
on a group of persons standing in
the Hoffman House to-dlay by sa
youngish-looking man of about
thirty-five reare. He was attired
in a neat morning suit of light
colored tweed, which fitted bhi
well. The man was Billy Deutsch,
t the noted Laccarat bank breaker,
styled in Paris "Le Roi de Bacca
rat." He looks remarkably well
after his long vacation, and is as
popular as ever. He stands about
t five feet ten inches high, is rather
well set,'having a strong appear
ance, has a dark complexion, and
wears a heavy jet-black mustache.
SIis long sojourn in the French
1 capital has caused himt to speak
with a slight French accent, and
one would never think he was

"Now," said he, turning to the
Mail and Express reporter, " what
can I do for you ? Oh, talk, is it ?
Well, I don't know. Just come
with me to breakfast, and I will
see if I have anything to say that
will interest the American public."
"Just you look here, waiter;
now I'm in America'again, and I
want only American food. Let
me have, to, begin with, a dozen
clams and soft shell crabs andi
some green corn. Too early for
green corn. eh Well, give me
some frogs' legs instead of the
crabs-and cocktails, of course."
"When did you arrive here, Mr.
Deutsch t" asked the reporter.
"Yesterday morning on the'
Amrerique from Havre, and right
glad I am to be here again. I
have been away for ive years, and
for the last two hteb been -enter
ed in Paris."
"Now, you have had a long
turn at the cards. Willyou give
me your opinion of the card-play
ers and gamblers you have come
across, and the effect playing has
upon a man ?"
"First of all, will you say that I
have no personal desire to be in

that prompts me to talk. It is a
matter of total indifference to me
as to what the result personally is,

others who are willing to take ad
vantage of my experience, I will
tell you what I. know, and it is
this : That the man who will gam
