WHO WAS IOKINATDIt
There doesn't appear to have
been much crowing over the results
of the Mkse Meeting, and there has I
been some curiosity manifested as
to the reason for this. It is usual
for men who have won a victory, to
indulge in more or less rejoicing,
Sbut there has been a painful lack,
of any exhibition of glee on the
part of the supposed victors. !
The TIMEs has made some effort.
to discover the cause of this re
markable state of affairs, and is at
last enabled to give a very good
reason. It is, simply, that they
didn't dare to "holler," before
before they got out of the woods.
Mr. McClellan's majority was only
eight, o er Captain Holmes, and
everybody krovs,. or think they
know, that a large number of men
who had no right to participate in
the mass meeting, were on hand
on that occasion, and voted freely,
and for Mr. J. T. McClellan. In
short, it is known, and can be
proved, that there were from
twenty to thirty men, who voted
for sheriff, who had no right to
vote. And when it is added that
it is known, (and can be proved)
that the greater part of them voted
for McClellan, it becomes an inter
eating question to know, who was
really nominated. If it can be
shown that twenty or twenty-five
men who had no right to vote at
all, voted for Mr. McClellan, on
that occasion, his supposed ma
jority disappears,and Cal,t.Holmes
having received the majority of
the legal votes cast, is, properly,
the nominee. Don't you think so?

Mohini Chatterji, who has been
initiating cultu:ed Boston into
some of the mysteries of esoteric
Budhism, has translated into En
glish a fragment of the Indian poem
"The Mahabbarata" For those who
are seeking wisdom from Oriental
sources this translation will be a
great blessing. Take the follow
ing sweeping assertion, for in
stance as an illustration of the
illustration of the great value of
Chatterji's work: "For the Naught
no anghtness can there be, nor
naughtuess can there be for Aught."
This is deliciously true and truly
delicious. It is worthy of the Con
cord School of Philosophy, and it
ranks with that organization's as
sertion that "Actuality is the
Thingness of the Here." We can
not have too many of these chunks
of Eastern wisdom.-World.
1 0UPO1T OF OIAZD JIY.
To the Hon., the Judge of the
. 8th Judicial District of Louisiana,
in and for the Parish of Madison,
we your Grand Jury duly empan
. neled and sworn at the Dec. 1887
t regular term of your lion. Court,
with respect this our final report.
It huas been our painful duty to ex
amine several eases of homicide
and we return four indictments for
murder, and two for manslaughter.
IWe think these cases should be
r tried as speedily as possible and
I while the accused should be pro
i tected in all legal rights, yet justice
Sdemands; that the pumishument ol
terrible crimes like murder be
swift-as well as certain. There is
reat danger of maudlin sentiment
arising in favor of conspiciouscrim
- Inals who have suffered from long
I confnement in prison and even in
I oases ofe conviction, which is doubt
hfl after long delay, and muoh of
- the belcial effets of punishment
is lost. We congratulate the ofli
I cers of the Court pon the steady
*and successful prosecution of the
late Andrew Fleming; and hope
that like justice may be meted out
as promptly to like ocender. Se
rious crime has increased in this
parish during the past year, and
we attribute it to the fact that so
few juries fully discharge their
duty, and so few criminals reap
the fruits of their crime. Crimi
a mel law in order to be effective,
must be rigidly em f.re
Sed. Jmies nmot con
' vet when the evidence shows guilt
learly sad heavy sentenced must
!be impaired. We are satisfied that
Sthree of the cases of homicide ir.n
vestigated by us would nothave
oocurred but for the general and
now pernicious practice of carryg
lng pistols about the person. In
each ease the difficulty seemed to
have occurred suddenly and if the
parties had been unarmed at the
time, in all probability it would
have pased off withuut harm to
anyeoe. We present several par
kllljf~ -e'Il -
possibility of the Courts to enforce
the law, unrless assisted by the peo
p!e at large. We find those laws re
lating to property rights here have
been very generally observed, on'y
three or four cases of larc,'tn were
reported to us, and none of a veiy
serious tnatutre. We have made
some investigation into the woik-:
ing of the Sunday law and a te
pleased to state that we have not
h:,ard of its bting violated in any
inst ance.
Ou- investigation of the jail dis
closes the fa t that some of the
waste pil e4 in the cells are some
what out of order and unless re
paired may cause an injury to val
uable material, and ill health to
the prisoners. We notice also that
in rainy weather a pond of water
accumulated in front of the jail t.º
such an extent as to force any one
to wade to~reach it. This could be
obviated by suitable ditches &c.,
at smali expense. We call these
two matters to the attention of our
Police Jury, and hope they will
attend to the matter promptly.
We have paid but little attention
to minor offences, though we
cannot help rema: king that we
look upon minor offences about as
we do upon nickels and dimes,
which must be guarded with care
if dollars are to accumulate and so
minor offences must be nipped in
the bud, if grave ones are to be
prevented. Hence if circumstances
in our parish ever become more
opportune than now, we hope
that a very thorough investigation
of every crime may he made and
strong remedies applied.
Having finished our labors. We
respectfully ask to be discharged.:
E. H. MUSE, Foreman.
