SATURI)AY, No\. 24, 1906.
UIp to lihe present, time we have
not seen that Lieutenant Governor
8anders had taken advantage of
the absence of Gov. lilanchard
from the State recently to com.
mute the death sentence of Elus
LeBlanc, as was expected and pre
dicted by some of the people here.
We believe that the high authori.
ties of the State, whose duty it is
to look into this serious case, will
give i the attention it deserves,
and their final decision will be ac
cording to law and justice. We
must expect that the authorities
will give this matter very serious
consideration, we have no reason
to believe that the Board and the
Governor are going to dispense
any special favor to the accused,
and when they have investigated
the case fully, that their decision
will be what it should be, accord
ing to the law.
SELLS MORE OF CHAMBERLAIN'S
REMEDY THAN OF ALL OTHERS
The following letter from a locality
where ('amnlerlain's Cough Remedy sl
well k'nown, shows by the unprecedented
demand for it that the medicine sells on
its own merit. Mr. Thos. George, a mer
chant at hit. Elgin. Ontario. says: "I
have hadl the local agency for Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy ever since it was
iutrodneed into Canada, and sells as
much of it as I do of all other lines I
have on my shelves put together. Of
the many dozens sold under guaran'ee.
I have not hadl one bottle returned. I
car.personally recommenud this mlediciine
as I have Iul it myself and given it to
chihlren atl always with the best re
sUlts." For sale by T. J. Labbe.
Opera House Dec. 3rd.
The Olympia Opera Co.
Read what Ihe Galveston Daily
News has to say about it:
"The Olympia Opera Company
held tlhe board at llhe Grand Ope.
ra ,House yesterday, matinee and
night, presenting Andran's "La
Mascotte" in the afternoon and'
"Olivette" at night. In justice to
the company it must be said that!
there have been high price perfor
mauces on the local stage this sea
son thati can not compare with it,
either as regards voices or as re
gards actin,. The strength of the
cast is in the voices, of course, hut
there are some 'lever co'medians,
particularly Lee Adde, who in "La
Mascotte" plays the part of lPrince
Lorenzo XVII. He is ably seco.n
ded in the comedy parts by Joe
Alexander in the character of Ro,.
c,, a farmer. In "Olivette" Mr.
Adde takes the part of Cocqoilcot.
Among the voices, Miss Lucie De
vaI and Perry Matson stand at the
head of the cast. Miss Deval is a
high soprano and made, yesterday,
quit a bit. Mr. Matson has a soft,
clear boprano voice, which he con
trols admirably. Mr. Adde made
a hit at the matinee performance
with his song, "Nothing New." In
the last act Miss Haysel Coulter
and chorus gave a pretty rendition
of "So Long, Mary," from "Forty
Five Minutes From Broadway."
The company carries a good class
of scenery and the costumes are
MADE HAPPY FOR LIFE.
Great happiness came into the
home of S. C. Blair, school super
intendent, at St. Albans, W. Vs.,
when his little daughter was re
stored from the dreadful complaint

daughter had St. Vitus' Dance,
which yielded to no treatment but
grew steadily worse until at a last
resort we tried Electric Bitters;
and I rejoice to say, three bottles
effected a complete cure." Quick,
sure cure for nervous complaints.

--The fire alarm was sounded
Monday at about ten o'clock, the
fire being in the ginnerv of the St.
be Martin's Oil Works. The fire or
a., iginated in the gins and started in
.e- the big iron flues that run from
nt the gins to the press, the fire got
ie out of the flues at the press and
' set fire to the cotton in the press
ut and shot out of the flues on top of
s; the building and set fire to the
es cotton which had accumulated on
k, the roof, but Ihis being of iron, no
tL. damage was done. Steam was
turned into the flues to put out
the fire and with buckets the fire
was put out, without turning on
the hose which would have done
a great deal of damage. This gin
nery is suppl d with the automa
tic sprinklers but there was not
enough heat to operate them.
The ginnery has also hose connec
tion with the big water tower. As
soon as the alarm was given the
big pump of the plant was put in
operation and the water tank was
soon overflowing and the power
ful pump can operate all the hose
of the plant. The fire for a while
looked very threatening, but the
damage was very small. The fire
department was promptly on the
scene ready for the emergency.

The Return of Democracy.
The appointive system in Louis
iana had its birth in military rule,
in 1867, and it was conted
throughout the Warmotb and Kel
logg administrations, in the filling
of all vacancies by executive ap
pointment. The police juries how
ever were elective. There was
then a negro majority in the State
and a residence of only ten days
in the parish gave the negroes the
amplest opportunity to swell this
majority with the greatest ease.
On the advent of the Nicholls gov
ernment, many parishes were help
lessly under negro domination and
the only means of salvation for the
white people in these black par
ishes lay in the continuation of
the appointive system and its ex
tension to the police jury. The
whites in the white parishes patri
otically yielded their own rights
and acquiesced in the continuation
of this suspension of the democra
tic form of government, as a choice
between two evils.
This expedient was resorted to
in the name of the Democratic par
ty, and young men who had never
seen or lived under the Democra
tic form of government came to
look upon the appointive system
as a principle of Democracy, anil
they became accustomed to the
abuses and to the subserviency
which this system inevitably en
This is why so many of the white
people had grown so indifferent
that the restricted suffrage created
by the Constitution of 1898, ser
ved only to eliminate the mass of
the negro voters and to make i
easier for the directors of the Dic
tature to fortify its tenure.
Never before had so grostesque

itself upon a spirited people by
parading in the outward garb of
