about 4 o',loek in the morning a

dwelling house of Mr. John Larkin,

carry it off the foundation and leave
it almost a complete wreck. The
furniture was badly demolished and
nearly all of the family sustained
slight injuries except, Mr. John Lar

wound. Besides Mr. John Larkin,
there were in the house at the time of

The Opseing Uon of the Campaign.
The Democratic State Campaign
was opened last Saturday in Donald.

held at that point, at which Hon. W.
W. Heard, Senator 8. D, McEnery,
Gov. M. J. Foster, Congressman R.
F. Broussatd and Judge Walter
Guion adlressed the people.
The greatest enthusiasm prevailed,
and the echoes of thnt first Democra

the State.

Tae Democratic Nom'nes for the
The Democratic Senatorial Con.
vention, which met here last Thurs
day, chose well when it nominated
Col. W. H. Price, of Lafourche. and
Mr. Alcide J. Bonvillain, of Terre
boone, as candidates of the Demnoors
tic party for the State senate.
Col. Price is widely known through
out the three parishes of the district,
and popular everywhere. While he
has never held office, he has always
taken an active part in politics and
in affairs of state, as every good
citizsen should, and has a personal
acquaintance with nearly all the public
men of the State, a fact which will
be of value to him as a Senator.
Being a man of an observing turn of
mind, he is well acquainted with the
needs of the State, as well as of his
e distract, and will make a valuable
member of the Senate.
His colleague, Mr. Bonvillain, is
• not so we known outside of his
pariah, where he stands very high.
He is a young man of fair education,
a successful and large sugar planter,
y a first class business man, full of the
. energy and push of the "new man'
ri of the "new south." Well acqusinted
with the needs of the district, pos
seseed of a laudable ambition and a
. desire to promote the general welfare
of his native State, he, too, will take
good care of the interests of his
e constituents in the State Senate.
e Truly, the convention did very well
' in presenting to the people of the
district for their suffrages two such
splendid young Democrats, so fully
II identified with all the material inter
Sesats of the State, and we believe the
r1 people will show their appreciation of
o the work of the convention tit the

ful discharge of official duo'es be any
recommendation for their retention in
,,ffice, they will certainly receive a
flatt.ring vote in the coming election.
In thus warmly supporting the e
efficient and faithful officials, the
people will not only discharge an act
of simple Justice in recognizing merit
but will at the same time promote the
public interest. and consequently
their own, by insuring the election to I
offie of men who have been tried
and not found wanting.
The old cry about changing offcers
is all ell sl n, good in its way, but
the wise man will think twice before
changing a 'ried, true and faithful
servant for an untried one, who
comes only with fair promises to re
commend him.
The observance of the old admoni
tion "to let well enough alone" has
many times saved people from a
world of trouble.
As for the candidates on the local
tickets who are not now in harness,
the SKNTINsL will say that they are
all honorable men, chosen by their
fellow Democrats for their respective
offies, and in every way worthy of
the surlages eof their fellow men in
the coming election.

For the wurder of Anas Parker.
A quiet sad orderly tragedy took
plice yesterday shortly after 12
o'clock noon within the four walls of
the parish jail. Thomas Nathaniel,
the murderer of Anna Manuel, alias
Anna Parker, his concubine, suffered
the extreme penalty of the law on
the gallows. The execution took
place according to law, and as noth.
ing unusual occurred during the
solemu proceedings, culminating in
the taking by the law of a life for a
life, the SNTINIsL prefers not to
enter into the awful details.
The crime for which the unfor.
tonate man was executed was comn. I
mitted on March 10th 1899-just!
one year ago to~day Hi. victim i
who had been at work in the field on
Enterprise plantarto was resting on
a Lheadland, with two female compa
nins, after partakling of their meal.
The sacused wakel up with a bshovel
in hand, and after inquiring of the
d .ecrsed if she would go back to
live with him, and- receviong a nega..
tire answer, he stauck her a terrifc
blow on thehead with the shovel,
felling her. Thebm ensued a struggle
with the two other women who tried
to protect the victim, and finoally
trieing himself from them, he agan
pounced on Auna and, despite her
piteous appeals, stabbed and cut her
to daath with a knife.
The accused then made good hbis
es-ape, and despite all the searceh and
vigilance of Sherift Beary and his
deputies, he remained at large until

able, never let up in has determination
and efforts to capture the murdrerer,
and fially loeted him at Three States,
in Missouri, etfted hlis arrest, bro aght
him back and landed him in jail here
on May 3, 1899, before any one
knew that the Sh rift had even been
out of the State. It was a clever
piece of detective work by which the
cused was lasted and arrsted.
The ecused was tled and coo
victed at the September term of
court, nd on September 28th the
derah sentence was passed. An ap
pe was at oneas taken to the sop:res
court, and the verdict of the jury
suetained and the seatenoe alrnmed
