Every business man, nay every citizen is an important factor in plromoting the commercial and indus trial growth of his town and parish. There is no room for croakers in any progressive community. As indivi duals we must always speak well and encouragingly of our resources and the possibilities that await de velopcment in the future. This is essentially a hustling age in all lines of business aun we have to keep abreast of the times or get left in the march of progress. We, however, can accomplish but little by desultory, indivi.iual action di building up great enterprises. To reach the goal of success our business men and pnhlic spirited citizens must unify their fort-es, must organize their capital and influence into one Harmonious whole to as to effectually establish and maintain all of those Industries and enterprises which will aitd to the commercial growth and prosperity of town and country. To this much desired end the SENTINEL would suggest the organi zation of a Business League, or Board of Trade in Thibodaux. If you want your city t o grow, to in crease in trade, an and assume a healthy C commercial status, the business men t must all put aside their petty jealon. t sles and selfish purposes, subordinate every thing to the good of tih+^ -*. and pull together as one 1..: establish all needed public enter. prises. If rice mills are needed and pay handsome Irofits in the rice belt, if t cotton fucto i,.s are built and flourish f throughout the cotton districts of the f soouth, why should not Central sug;ar it factor ies be equally in demand and P pay large dividends in this great sugar cane belt of our State ? With I steamlboat navigation and railway i facihtles Thibodanx is an idell lIcwali ty for a Sugar Refinery and shoull a have one. Situated in the heart of ti tbe geat sugar industry with all : other environments to foster and n make a .sunccess of such an enterprise T it behoo\ves our citizens to take v action and build one. A Centrlal sugar refinery would add materially to the commerclal importance of our city. If New Orleans can build rice mills, and send out agents into the " country and buy rough rice to mill P and make a good profit on invest ir ments, why cannot Thibodaux capital 1 erect a rice mill also. The coast rice la fields are not far off andl much of ci that rice might be diverted to Thibo- b daux. t A pretty fair idea may he obtained of the profits in rice mi'ls when it is t alleged that the sales of rice bran o0 and rice polish almost pay the run. di ning expenlses~ of a mill after it isoi established. The town of Crowley had five large rice mills running di during the past season and three of more will be finished in time for the s forthcoming crop. All of these millslP made go) prolfits and employed a i Il rge number of men. All of these ' factories andl mills give employment di to a n"mllbr of wage earners who speniid their money with the mer. at chants of their towu. p It would seem that a .3lose factory se woiuldl pay well here as there is an so abuindance of greeli moss in the ad. at j.-emt nswamps, aili it wonul require vi hit little callital to purchase the wI mn chin-i l for i'eanhio it. hittres. jl s,. colltars, etc. (coil also bie Ilanui ii f:t-tullii iii connlultiCtlii ilterewitlh.

At the last session of the Legisla ture three very important Acts were passed and promulgated which we will publish for the information of our readers. Act No. 83. ImHposes a license tax of $50 00 upon retail dealers in ry pistols and $25.00 In pistol car. trilgtps. S Act No. 98. Prohil.its the sale of cigacetteQ, c1garette paper and tobac t co to minors under a penalty of . $25 00 to $10t0.00 1I Act No. 120. Prohibits the mar s rinage of first cousins, etc. e The two latter Acts went into i effect from day of promnulgation. S King Humbert Assassinated. King llunlmbert was assassinated by an anarchist, nam ln Angelo Bressi, at ,Monza, Italy, at 10 o'clock, p. inm. on last Sundaty, just as he entered his carriage on his return from at. tending a distribution of prizes in connection with a gymnastic comnpe. tition. lie was struck by three shots fired in quick succession by the assassin and died in a few minutes. It is allegedl that Bressi lived in Patterson, N. J. for some time, up to about the mitdle of May, and went eto Italy expressly to kill Kin:g Hum Bert. The King was a very popular monarch and greatly beloved by his peo!)lt and this atrocious deed will cause still more repressive measures nto be taken in Europe and America to suppress anarchism. e A Bryan and Stevenson Club. O;le of our leading citizens has auL,~gstedl the prolricty of organizing a Bryan DIemocratic (lub. The ida is a most excell,.ut one and may leadi f to the actisition of many local votes for the national l)emocratic: ticket by frequent discussions of the salient r issues involved in the approaching I presidential campaign. t The greatest menace to our repul. Sbeacn form of government and to the liberties of the IpOlple is the present imperialistic policy of the Republican I administratlon in its foreign coloniza. tion conquests which necessitate a large standing :army and increased navy. and tl:e promotion of giant Trusts which are sapping commercial vitality and competition throughout the country. The New Orleans Raot. The killing of Capt Day, Patrol. man Lamb and serious wounding of policeman Mora, who were attempt ing to arrest thle anarchistic negro dlesplercdo-Rol.rt Charles-by the latter, last weck. was made the ex cuse of a mob of hoodlums to atta-;k, beat and attempt to kill every negro that they could find on the streets, I until the Mayor of the city ~alled on the citizens and the Governor ordered C out the State Militia to suppress the I disgraceful and murderous conduct j of the lawless rabble. The desperado-Robert Charles. t deserved and met death at the hands of oftlicers and citizen posse, who - sought his capture, but it was de plorable that so many more valuab!e lives were taken by this black fiend ( before he paid the penalty of his t diabolicral crimes. Charles, who ha'l brutish Instincls and the homicidal mania, was a fit product of the incendiary literature < sent out by thIe so called Liberian E societies of Boston and other cities, i and he was ready for any deed of violence and ml:rtler ag inst theh white people.

R Boosevelt Slanderous Tirade. 0o I o "Rough Rider" Roosevelt, the nominee for Vice President on the i. National Republican ticket, lets his insane egotism run riot with truth and decency as well as with d:',loma tic political policy in his vituperative utterances already being made against the Democracy and the South. r Only a few days ago he said : the "Democrats stand for lawlessness is and di-order, dishonesty and dishon. ,s or, disaster at home and cowardly te shrinking from duty atiroad," totally ignoring the fact that about half of . the regiment of Rough Riders who fought at the battle of San Juan were southern men as well as Demo crats. But in the San Juan affair ,'Teddy" Roosevelt obscured Col " Wood, Gen. Joe Wheeler and all the e troops by his awe-inspiring presence. It would be well for Roosevelt to Sexplain the Republican "Embalmed IBeef" scandal and "Cuban Postal defalcations." etc. etc. before making r wholesale charges against the Demo craey. lThe Chicago Journal, an indepen. dent paper. thus in part addresses f Roosevelt respecting his wild tirade: ,"If there are six or seven million persons in this country who 'stand r for lawlessness and disorder. dishon esty and di.lonor, disaster. at home o and cowardly shrinking from duty abroad,' God help the country. It is worse off than China. But thele aren't. '-Be more tolerant, Colonel. Don't let the vapors of the caavaas get into your head, heating your mind and corrupting( your speech. Remember Sthe fate of Ingalls. He was as clever I as you are and atmost as picturesque, but he mistook the temper f the SRepublicans. He thought they want e I to hear the Democrats abused and slandeled, and he did, making a very 8 am ising job of it. VWhere is he now ? e Peddling his unimportant opinions to the yellow newspapers." Mr" Bryan On The Democratic Plat. form t William J. Bryan himself madethe followmg statement on the democra. r tic platform: "I am very.- much gratiffed to learn of the adloption of a platform which is clear and explicit on every ques tion. The controversy over the silver plank was not a controversy between men who differ in principles, but rather a difference of opinion as to the best method of stating the questiou. "If we only had Democrats to deal with, a simple reatlfirmation would have been sutricient. but we have to deal with the republicans as well as democrats and some of the repub'i cans would misconstrue a re:lltfirma. tion and endeavor to twist it into an evasion or abandoment of the sflver question. "Our appeal is to the patriotism and conciencue of the people, and we must tak- them into our confidonce if we expect them to have eonfid.nue in us. )ur platfo;m deals honestly and fearlessly with every question ibtforc the !Iblli;., and since we have nothing to 'xpa!:ltln we can spemd all our tume in as:sault upon republican policies 'The industrial trusts haa alarm ed many who were not with us in our fight against the mony trlst in 9ti. We shall not disappoint them; we shall not cease our efforts until every private monopoly is dlestryed. "Imperialism appeals to many as the most dangerous of the evils now menacing our country. It involves not only a change in our ideas of gov erament but a return to the militar. ism of the old world. No matter how many men may differ as to the rela tire importance of the question .,now before the country, every one muist recognize that an economic evil can be corrected more easily than one which attacks the foundation of gor. ernment. "'If we adhere to the principle that government is a thing made by the peple for themselves, the people can in time remedy wrong, but if that dc.trine as surrenderel the pa op'e are helpless to r.diess, andi grievance. "The six and a half mil:ion who suiliorted the Chicago platform in '96 stood like a solid wall against the trust and against imperialism. "If 10 per cent of those, who, by A Eb:niater's Good Work. "I had a severe attack of bilious colic, got a hottle of Chamrnerlain's Colic, Cholera anld Diarrhoealjtmed', took two ,do)es and was entirely cured, says Rev. A. A. Power, of Ialnioria, Kan. "y13 neighbor across thestreet was sick for over a week, had two or three bottles of medicine from tihe doctor. lie sed them for three oi four days withrut re ief, then c'lled in a'tothcr doctor who treated him fot somne days and gave him no relef, so dischargd him I went o.er to see him the next morning, lie sold his bowlcs were in a terrible fi,. that they hal 1been ru'inga clfso lotg that it was almst b:uody.

For sle by Rotllhi ';ting the ,eljUulican tic.ket, brought thre presat danger upon the eon!ntrv will join us, this nation will once Icore tercome the champion of liberty and an inspiration to the oppressed everywhere. .= The Baton Rouge Capital Item has this suggestive paragraph: "The white population of B.ton Rouge is not increasing, while the negro population is at least one-tiurd greater t'an ten years ago. If this continues the time will very soon come when it will be impossiole for a self respecting white person to live here. There is but one way left to change this order of things, and that is for the whites to organize a social protective association."' We have recently heard reports of the largely increased number of loaf ing and vagabond negroes on the streets of Shreveport, and this, too, at a time when labor is greatly needed on the plantations. But however great this evil may he, there has never been a time since the war in that town when colored population were not taught to know their place and by the strong hand, if need were, forced to keep it. The younger generation of blacks' in the cities especially, are arrogant and disposed to be insolent, if not checked by the superior race, and to judge from the comment of the Item, our Baton Rouge friends may have been a little sl,w to recognize, or at least to act upon this fa:ct. No one doubts linbut that prosperity o,f our Southern cities. New Orleans in partieular. and of the country at large would be greatly enhanced if the negroes were ielega.ted to the plantati in where they properly belong akd white men employed in their iplaces as i,orte:s, draymen, stevedor es, etc. Granting, what the merchants maintain, but what we are reluctant to admit, that colored i;lor, as a rule, is more Wffe ctive, and even more te liable than white labor, the getting rid of the presence of this class would tend largely ,o the removal of the worthless vagabonds who are chiefly fed from the kitchens of the white and who make burglary a profession. With a much smaller population they have a much larger representation before our criminal courts. The terrible tragedy of yesterdlay furnishes an object lessen of the danger of per mitting black ruffi:lns to econgregate in this city.-Daily States There is not a town in Louisiana but what is asfll:cted with some of these worthless, idle class of negroes, who would make nptpupils of Robert ('ha:rles the New Orleans negroe dieiperadlo, if a favorable opportunity w:,uld present itself. Such a c!ass of idlers can be safely watched every where. MIKE LEVY & C00. TIll iORIt X, LA. Clean, Paint, Repair, Put up and take Down Smokestacks, SCaIIAHOl'E CUHINETS, EATT IACHINE.
