Remarks the (Abbeville) Meridional:
After six months of effort, the Re
publicans achieved a platform which
was promptly repudiated from oue
end of the countiy to the other by
the Republican prss, and which it is
now claimed was foisted upon them
by shenanigan. Tuas will do to tell.
Republican discipline is too good to
permit anything of the kind to be
done. The Republicans are simply
trighteaed by the unexpected scorn
heaped upon their "non-glittering"
generalities and are trying to hedge.

It Rests with the People.
The town constable has been busy
this week distributing among the
eens of this town copies of act
136 of 1898, relatingto the incorpora
tions of villages towns and cities.
This is done with a view of giving
the voters ample opportunity to in
form themselves of the provisions of
the charter for the adoption of which
they are called on to vote on the
23d of this month.
Every voter should carefully read
and study the multifarious provistons
of that act, so as to vote
intelligently on the proposition.
As the Sentinel has had occasion
to say in the past, it believes the;
adoption of that act as the charter
of the town will be of a decided
advantage to the town, and it trustsl
that a majority of the voters will view
the question in the same light when
they cast their vote on the 23rd inst.
The matter is now in the hards of
the people, it rests with them. Let
them consider it seriously and solve

A Fair Prospect for a Good Boy's
It will be good news to the people
of this town and vicinage that we are
on the way of having a good private
school for boys, ample to accommo.
date all who ofier to enter.
Rev. Father Dubourg, appreciating
the urgent need of such a school, has
perfected arrangements with Prof. L.
M. Hargis by which that efficient and,
successful educator will re open
school in the old Thibodaux College
and secure the necessary assistant
teachers to run a first class school for
boys. Father Dubourg will have the
premises put in order, and Prof. Har
gis will take up his abode in the
school in order to have a better su
pervision and control over the pupils.
Thus the prospect of Thibodaux
having again a good private school
for boys, as it has had in the past, is
excellent, and we are sure that this
announcement will be received with
joy by parents with sons to educate.

The Governor's Appointments.
Gov. Heard has sent to to the Sen
ate appointments to varnous offices
in New Orleans, which have provoked
both the Times-Democrat and the
Picayune into bitter denunetations of
Among the appointments were
those of Capt. John Fitzpatrick as
tax collector of the first district, Mr.
Robert Ewing to a collectorshil, and
Mr. Michael Fanning as coal ganger,
and it is these appointments which
seem to have stirred the bile of our
esteemed contemporaries of the Cres
cent City to that extent that they
have been regaling their readere with
tirades against bossism and the spoils
system in politics.
The SENTINEL does not propose to
pose as the apologist of any one, but
it will say in justice to the Governor
and to his appointees, that common
fairness requires that whoever will
condemnn the executive for the exer.
cise of the appointive powers vested
in him should advance better reasons
for his condemnati ) than the hyster

If there are any democrats in
Washington who are not enthusiastl
cally pleased with the ticket and
plattorm made by the Kansas City
Convention they are cot showing
themselves or doing any public talk
ing. It cannot be said that any part
of the work of the Convention was a
surprise. The only thing that could
be considered open when the conven
tion assembled was the nomination
for Vice President. The head of the
ticket had been fully settled by the
instruction of more than the necessary
two-thirds of the delegates for Col.
Bryan, and the important planks of
the platform were practically settled
in advance by those same instructions
as there had not at any time any doubt
of the position of Col. Bryan, wh.se
consistency Is one of his strongest
holds on the rank and file of the de
mocratic party, upon any question
that would be handled in the platform.
A candid republican, prominently con
necttd with the administration, who
made no pretense to conceal his disap
pointment at the failureof the attempt
to modify the silver plank, sail:
"That convention was wises than I
thought It would be. The platform
will lose votes for the ticket in States
where they could -not have affected
the result, but I am afraid it will gain
enough votes to give the democrats
several states they could not possibly
have carried had they straddled
silver." The confidence shown by
democrats argues well for a dem I
cratic victory this year. Republicans
are, of course, keeping up a bold
front in public, but it is no secret
that privately many of them are ex
pressing fear of defeat.
