Police Jurors Indicted.
Leesville Leader Nov. 6: The grand
jury now in session in this city re
turned bills-of indictment against E.
E. Lanehan on a charge of offering a
bribe, and Police Juryman J. H. Tur
ner of Ward One, J. M. Marcus and
T. J. Addison of Ward Two, J. A.
Wilson of Ward Four and G. R. Car
ver of Ward six. The bills were re
turned yesterday.
The indictments grey out of the
pi'sistent etlort: on .the part of cer.
rain members of the Police, JuF- to
pass., a resolution: I.ting a.contract
to estimate the tismtr lands of. Ver-,
n6n Parish in order, as the matter
was put to sound more feasible to
the public ear, to reclassify the land.
The contract for this work was
let some months ago at 3c per acre,
a fgure that would have cost the
parish something like $30,000, had
not such pressure been brought to
bear upon the jury that the contract
was rescinded at the same meeting
at which it was let. At. this time
there was a strong suspicion of the
existence of graft; in fact the jury
was warned by District Attorney
Lyles that they must keep within
the bounds of the law.

evidence visible of the possibilities

the view of encouraging the colored

ral products embrace all the things
that can be raised from the soil. In
this exhibit is the handiwork of
women and girls, the'bffort directed
at domestic science.
The Fair up to date has proven a
success. It has inspired an enthu
siasm that is promising of the great
est progressive development.

nknce Joe Laggier, Ashby Long, S.

right before he knows anything
about doing wrong, than it is to re
strain him from doing wrong when
he has no desire to do right.
Con.titutional Convention.

tional Convention, limited to seven
ty-nine, will meet in Baton Rouge
tomorrow, Monday, Nov. 10. The
convention is to provide the ways
and the means for refunding the
State debt aggregating $11.000,000.
No other measure will receive atten
tion or consideration at this conven
tion besides the State indebtedness;
the session therefore should be
brief. (Gov. N. C. Blanchard is the
representatnie from Caddo Parish.
A Lighting Plant for New Orleans.
Commissioner Lafaye has an
nounced that he has been authorized
by the City Council of New Orleans
to inquire into the cost of a munici
