Go Slow About It.
The Thibodaux Sentinel in its
last issue wisely said: "Several
of our exchanges are "ringing the
slow bell" on the two cent passen
ger railroad rate proposition. As
the Sentinel suggested some three
issues ago, that is the conservative
view to take of the matter. Poli
ticians may shout lower rates; we
want lower rates; we want lower
rates, if possible; but we want
more railroads also, and if lower
rates will stop railroad building in
this State, then we don't want
lower rates just at present. We
want more railroads worse than we'
do lower rates.
Let the advocates of lower rates,
then, busy themselves to show us
how we can get both, more rail
roads and lower rates at tea same
Until they have enlightened us
on t!us point, "ring the slow bell".
on them, whenever they begin
shouting "two.cent rate."
We very often hear a great deal
about exports and expert testimo
ny and sme people to
think a great deal of the opinions
of experts in every blanch of
science, industry etc. In the fa
mous Thaw case we see the high
est authorities in medicine, the
greatest experts of the great city
of New York, specialists of the
highest reputation, divided as to
his sanity. Those cited by Dis
trict Attorney ,Jerome are unani
mous that the prisoner is insane,
those of the defense that the pri
soner is sane, and the commission
appointed by the Court declares
that be is sane. Thaw is now le
gally sane, but are the mass of the
people satisfied that he is really
rational, there are yet in the
minds of many, great doubts.
Right here, in New Orleans we
have the case of the little German
girlVanderanwera, who was re
fused admittance to the United
States because, her eyes are red,
Dr. White of the Marine Hospital
Service and Dr. Scott his assis
tant 'pronounced the girl, afflicted
with a certain disease of the eyes;
the .girl's uncle called eve special
ists, Drs. sees and Pope, who
made a thorough examination of
the, girl's eyesr declared that the
irritation of the girl's .eyes was
caused by the wind and from cry
ing, and that she is not afflicted
with the disease reported by the
Government physicians, and the
matter will now go to the Courts.
We have had several large da
mages in this State during the
past few months and very little
has been said about Tornado nh
surance. Many of the Fire Insu
rance Companies are today ieso
ing Tornado policies which we
understand, at very low rates, and
very few, if any, in this section,
are carrying any insurance against
the damages of tornadors.
