Did Not Keep Them away-
The Rush is On Us
A new slate for Monday, as three
of the great bargains we offered to
day were swept out of sight by the
surging mass of people.
They must go at any price, as we
are compelled to unload. Nothing
but cash goes, as these prices are ex
actly one-half the original cost.
No. 1. 56 childrens long beaver
Newmarket cloaks, ages 4 to 10 years,
are under our bargain axe and will
be given away at 95 cents: regular
stock price, $4. They are beauties.
No. 2. Fruit of the loom domestic,
a yard wide. 7, per yard. Every
customer limited to twenty yards.
No. 3. A whole case of extra heavy
fa-t black Richeliea riil ..ildren's
school hose, will g.i a: It'+. l," -; a:ir
but can only let you Lha:.- .
so they will go all aroundt
No. 4. Our regular 75e beautdfui
Brussels carpets will all go at 45c per
yard; but we can't help it-you know
No. 5. 25 bolts of French sateen,
all black and white patterns (no col
ored goods), that are worth 20c; will
go at 71c per yard. Only one pat
tern to each customer.
No. 6. A mixed lot of children's
heavy grain school shoes, solar tips,
guaranteed for six months, regular
stock price is $1.50; will go Tuesday

is no reason why all the tax-payers

That the parish printing, in all
equity, should be relet.
That justice, equity and fairplay
are unknown virtues to some trial
That while the City Council is in a

of the resolution.
That a free ferry at Mooringeport
is a luxury which those who indulge
in should alone pay.
That deer and fox hunting is not a
sport so highly privileged, that free

That the ladies and mini-ters of

That crap shooting is a violation of

without needing other eye-wit

AN IMMIGRATION SCHEME.
A PLAN TO SUCCEED IN THIS IM
Let the North LouIsIansa Parihe4 Take
Just now the trend of the public
mind in North Louisiana is on the
subject of immigration. There has
been no fully developed effort made
yet, though small blazes of enthusi
i astic sentiment will occasionally leap
- up at different times. For this rea
son now is the time for a preconcerted
and determined effort to be made.
f With but with little breeze these
l small blazescan be fanned into a
vast roaring flame which will sweep
all opposition from its path.
In every parish in North Louisi
ana, as in Uaddo, there are doubt
less thousands of acres of land now
uncultivated, which could be made
good producing soil with compara
tire little effort. These lands are now
and have been for years but burdens
in the way of taxation without yield
ing any revenue. For this reason
they are profitless to their owners
who would willingly sell them at a
very low price on long time and with
I little interest, so long as the last is
t paid in advance to insure good faith.
s Now, as in unity there is strength,
a Tsi Paooasse proposes that all own
ers of laeds of bis kind and others
which they are willing to sell cheap,
in all the North Louisiana parishes
form themselves into one vast im
migration society, and land comlpny;

At itegular meeting on Tb ur
day of last week, the conn~il did
come very near giving away the town,
It was in one of its giving moods on
that occasion. Evrrything went and
all that was necessary to obtain any
thing that was wanted was simply to
ask for it. The two street railway
companies asked for all they couldh
possiably handle and got it. They
were granted an extension of fran
chise to that which will eapire thirty
years hence making a total franchise
of fifty ears, etirely without price,
Mr. H. H. Youee of the Sixth Ward,
alone, raising his voice against such a
measure. We uaderstand that Ma
jor W. D. Scofield introduced the res
olution to grant it. This we must
admit mystifies us. We regard Ma
jor 8cofleld as a man of unquestion
able integrity and good business
judgment, as we do also Mr. Herold,
and for that reason we are nonjlased
to define tue efuse for their action in
the matter. We have no intention of
impugning the integrity of any
member of the conneii, but we must
confess that we do look for more sta
bility and business acumen in Msssrs.
Soofeld and Herold on account of
their age and experience.
Not only is this extreme extension
of gratis franchise, this mighty fifty
yems leapin the future unpardona
ble but we do not believe it is legal.
We d.not believe that the present
couenl ean anticipate the end of.
thirty years and extend a fran
chise twenty more years from
that tin. Itasema to us that sucht
a grant aould lie with a future coun
ci, one which is in power when the
present extemsion of thirty years ex
pires, and not in the power of the
one now iaooZ. Itf ~ hte law, it
seemsto us an easy matter for the
present eennell to make leaps into
futarist on any line and extend any
privilege which may now have a cer
tain limit of years to rn, and extend
the time indefinitely.
For nis ret boon the railway
companes pay nothing. A privilege
which may be worth thousands is
given for the aski"g simply, A
strange freak truly and one which
the man with avrage intelligence
will understand only under neat
