Mayor H. P. Fournet has under
taken the task of making a pretty
public park of the place of Evan
geline, under the oak of Evange
line, near the bank of the Teche.
This place of Evangeline is one
of the greatest attractions of the
town to strangers visiting St. Mar
The idea of Mayor Fournet is
to erect on this place a bast or a
statue of Longfellow, and be has
already made his wishes known to
the people of Portland, Maine, the
home of Longfellow, Lnd it seems
that the people of the home of the
destinguished poet are willing to
contribute to ihis proposed monu
We are of opinion that this
place of Evangeline, which is not
large, should be improved, by
building a brick or cement curb
ing, the ground filled in and level
led with good cement walk, and
embellished with a statue of Long
fellow, the famous poet, or of
Evangeline, the heroine of Long
fellow's pretty poem.
Our people, particularly the la
dies, should come to the assistance
of Mayor Fournet, in this enter
prise, and make it a complete sac
We ought to, and we can make
a little jewell of this place if we
only put it in our mind to do so.

USE GOOD ARGUMENT.
Our young friend of the Review
E is too profuse in the use of strong
wI ords to condemn those of the Ba
don faction who might take ad
vantage of the opportunity offered i
them to defeat their opponents, I
and in our opinion if they were to
do that, they would be guilty of i
no greater political crime than
those who have taken part in a pri- 1
mary and who have refused to I
submit to the result, or those who I
have signed written pledges and
have not respected them.
Political tricks are to be expec
ted, and what is good for one side
E should be good for the other. We
are of opinion that politics should 4
be clean, and honest, but before
using such strong language to '

St. Martinville to-day on his way
a to the 'Bayou Bouillon oil field.
He is just back from Beaumont,
where he had gone to procure
more piping and material for their
second well, which is now drilling.
Messrs. Fletcher and Barnet so
quired a lease from the Atehafala

I have already shipped another com
, plete drilling outfit to Bayou
f Bouillon, which is now at Morgan
City. and will be sent to the field
on the first available boat.
SAs mentioned in a previous dis
- patch, development is being push
Sed rapidly. St. Martinville being
- the most direct way to reach this
Snew field, is already feeling the
' benefit accruing from this develop
lment, and from the keen interest
which the oil people take in the
Iproposition of "an old field on a
river," the traffic through here
prolnises to be very extenuive, as
new companiee are beig organi

The' Salvation Army and the
The Salvation Army is an or
ganization which does not wait for
sinners to seek its ministrations,
but it goes to them wherever they
may be-in the streets or in the
The attentions of this organiza
tion are given to the lowliest and
most forsaken, and it therefore
ministers to a class seldom reach
ed by other religious means. But
it dces not confine its business to
offering religious services and con
solation to those among whom it
works. The Army maintains an
establishment where those who are
really needy are fed and lodged.
The places in which this philan
thropic business is done is declar
ed by all who have visited them to
be conducted with the most per
feet order and cleanliness, and the
relief afforded is said to be most
prudently and wisely dispensed.
For some time such an institu
tion has been kept in operation
here, but it was carried on under
difficulties, not the least of which
was insufficient support. It is
now proposed, under the auspices
of the Progressive Union, to make
an effort to sebure a modest fund,
but one adequate to the needs of
the service, and to that end a pub
lic meeting will be held this even
ing at the hall of the Athenaeum,
on St. Charles Street, when Bri
gadier W. F. Jenkins will present
the plan which is to issue 1,200
