Raceland, La., May 16th 1900.
To the dlitor of the Thibodaux SasturatL.
Sir,-Under the heading of "Polh
tcal Inotolerance" you printed to
your sheet on last Saturday various
statements which may mislead the
general public; and it is with the
view of placing before your readers
such facts as hear upon the subject
in question that I ask you to give to
these few lines the same publicity as
you have seen fit to give to the phan
tom complaints so readily dilated
upon in your sheet in the recent
These few historical statements of
facts are not made as an explanation
to the writer of your editorial ; but
they are made with the keen sense
of the writer for fair dealings toward
all men, sand. with tha unieviating
desire to ar to all clases, the labor,
ing classes especially, equal opports.
In your editorial you make state.
ments that in themselves are concwi
sive proof of the fact that you have
not investigated the charges made,
but merely jumped at conclusions,
and taken advantage of your position
to heap into your columns liuellous
You state that since the election I
have ceased to allow peddling to be
done through the quarters of the
plantations of the Company that I
represent. In justice to this ompa.
ny, whose standard of integrity and
fair dealing is unquestioned, it is but
fair that I should make some state
meat in their defence, and in refuta
tion of the impression your editorial
may have among the laboring classes
outside of our places.
On none of the Plantations of our
Company do we operate Plantation
Stores, bat lease them to outsiders.
As a gurantee of protection to these
tenanes the Company agree in their
oontrast to prevent peddling through
their plantations. It is needless to
go further into details as this custom
is generally practiced on Plantations
in this Parish and all over the State;
and as this privilege forms the ooiy
advantage that storekeepers have in
tenanting stores of large plantations.
We do not compel our hands to pur
chase from any particular store; but
issue to the men Cash Orders, which
%re cashed at the store, and are
merely subject to the store account.
Any man not indebted to the store is
paid the full face value of his Cash
Order, and is free to purchase else
where, your Third Ward merchant
not excluded.
The writer does not feel under any
obligations to make any explanations
to tie writer of your narrow-minded
editorial but merely ask that the
above tatement be printed as an ex
planation to my friends who have
asked me to put myself on record
against such vilifying expressions of
the public press.
It has been the writer's set princi
ple to pay little attention to vitupers'
tion and mud s:inging; but he feels
that under the present circumstances
these few lines are jutifiable.
The writer is much grieved at the
fact that the Proprietor of the Thibo
daux 8sarTINaI, having a personal
acquaintance with the personal char
acter of the undersigned, could over
step the buonds of fair dealing Y to
allow his Newspaper to assert that
political revenge could prompt me to
such action.
In placing myself before the pn.
blic for election I did so with the
full knowledge of the political advan
tages of the opousition, and have
malice toward none for my detet.
My political action in the campaign
and since are beyond reproach, and I
challenge eontradicton. The very
fact that the Third Wa:d Merehalnt,
as well as all his brothers aod his
father, all of whom are in my em
ploy, were strong supporters of mine
places your editorial in such a light
as to make it a sulbject to be ignored
rather than one that should receive
this attention from me. The writer
regrets that your editorial was not in
the form of a communication so that
it eould be treated uas is deserving of
all such malicious, petty, peevish in
sinuoatons,-with contempt.

Near the appointed time for the
public meeting, they wended their I
way to the opera house, and aseem. i

and marched two by two with their Bag 1
and the band at the head of the column,
to the Planters' Club to receive Gen.
F. T. Nicholls and accompany him to I

The annual reunion of Camp I

19th of May last will leave ever
pleasant memories in the hearts of
all those who had the pleasure to
participate. As an epicurean affair it I
was pronounced a success, and as
social and patriotic gathering, one
needed only to cast a look on that I
assembly of veterans whose eyes still
gl'stened with martial ardor, despite
their hoary locks and time-worn
faces to realize how happy they felt
at meeting once with their comrades
of yore, their partners in the many
hardships and trials of war.
It was apparent what emotions
filed our dear old Confederates when
the music from the band gave the
Soul-Stirring Strains of "Dixie" and
the "Bonnie Blue lmag." Yet, what
