THE LAKE ROAD AGAIN.
A gentl'elman wh() is a large pro
perty owner of St. Martinville,
called on us this week antl im
pressed on our mind, the great
benetit the town would derive if
we could secure the opening of
the Lake Road, of which so much
has been said during the last few
Last year a committee of our
citizens investigated the matter
fully, and reported the approxinate
cost of said road at between three
and four thousand dollars, which
was far beyond the amount that
could be realized by the commit
tee, and they were consequently
forced to abandon the project.
The gentleman suggests, as the
only possible manner of ever se
curing the opening of that road, is
for the people of St. Martinville to
vote a special tax for that purpose,
with the help of the parish--he
believes it would materialize in a

This matter is now open for dis
cussion, and we invite those who

Our suggestion is this, if the
business of the sectin we seek is
sufficiently large to justify an ex
penditure of fu,4ir thousand dollars
for the opening of a road of only
a few miles,-- one or two, we he
lisve-that the parish pay ihalf of
the expenses and the town the
other half, if the property owners
are willing to tax tlhemnselves for
that purlpose. This, we believe,
is the only way we can sIcure the

A NEGRO LYNCHED.
A negro named Vauce McClure
was hanged in the jail at New
lberia, at noon Monday last, by a
We take tne following particu
lars from a New Iberia special to
the 'ime s-l)emocrat: Some time
ago Miss Hankins came here
from her home in Sturgeon,
Mo., to visit her sister, Mrs. Aug.
Pascal. The climate agreed with
Miss Hankins, and she decided to
rcmain until her health was resto
red. Just to the rear of the Pas
cal residence is situated the back
lot to Mr. John Broussard's sales
stabtle, on Julia street, were Mc
('lure was employed as keeper.
,For several weeks he had been
seen prowling around in a myste
rious manner in the adjoining pre
mises, but being well known by
the neighbors nothing was thought
of the matter until last Sunday
morning at 4 o'clock, when some
one attempted to break into the
Pascal residence, but was frigh
toned off. McClure was suspect
ed. Friday Miss Hankins was
taken suddenly ill with nervous
troubles, and Dr. Hebert was call
ed in. There being no organic
trouble, the physician suspected
I that she had suffered some severe
mental shock. Mrs. Pascal, by
urgent and continual questioning,
gleaned the fact that during the
Sunday night previous a negro
had gotten into Miss Hankins'
r room and had attempted to cri
r minally assault her, but when he
e found he could not accomplish
his purpose he choked her severe
Sly and threatened to kill her if
t she revealed his visit, and said
- that he would come again, and if
necessary kill her. As he walked
away she recognized him as Mc
Clure. The threat caused her to
- keep the matter quiet but the
s fear of his return and the great
, mental strain was too much, and
she told all. As soon as the facts
became known it was decided to
a lynch McClure, but the officers
had already arrested him and had
- him in jail. Last night an at
- tempt was made to secure the jail
- keys, but Jailer Pointes suspected
n something, and woke up Sheriff
- Cade and Deputy Romero, who
came to the jail, but they not hav
ing the keys the mob dispersed.
To-day at noon an organized body
of men carefully laid plans to fool
e the officers. By some means they
s secured duplicate keys, and while
- officers were at dinner quietly
s went to the jail, opened the cage,
y and taking McClure from it, hung
- him to the gallery railing. Some
f one turned in an alarm of fire, say
ing the jail was burning. This
F brought the officers to the jail,
r where they were overpowered un
til the vengeance of the people
, was complete. They were too
late to save the negro.
A Sensation in the Senate.
Senator German, of Maryland,
r made a sensational speech in the
r senate Monday, having for his
- subject the letter President Cleve
l- and wrote to Chairman Wilson of
- the House ways and means com

- pretty severely censured.
SSenator Gormnan arraigned the

that under that system they can f
never accomplish any good result. I
After reading and studying for
a while the necessity and import
ance of good roads to any commu
nity, and the methods of working
public roads, we have come to the
conclusion, that the only way pos
sible to secure the construction
and maintainance of good roads,
is by oontracting with a person
whose business it will be to work
the roads with improved machi
nery at so much a mile.
Let the police jury investigate
this plan and figure on the proba
ble cdkt of this system, they will
find that it will not cost a large
sum of money per mile, and when
a road is once made by machine
work, it will last a long time, and
the maintenance thereafter will be
We know of several parishes
who have adopted this system of
working their public roads with
satisfactory results. We would

lacerated part, dry it, then drop
