On Friday night of last week another enthusiastic meeting of citi zens was held at the City Hall. and as the committee on Constitntion and By Laws were not ready to report at that time, a permanent organization and election of officers was postponed to a subsequent called meeting.

Coulon, Henry Riviere, Sam Blum, Edgar Riviere, P. R. Percy, J. M. Taylor, Dr. A. J. Meyer, P. L. Braud, Louis Riviere, joined, throwing out sume very practical suggestions for the future consideration and action of the League. On Wednesday evening another meeting was held, which was well attended by representative citizens and a permanent organization effected by an adoption of a constitution and By Laws, which was read and adopt. ed by sections. A roster of mem bership was then signed by those present and the only fees fixed was twenty five cents monthly dues to meet contingent expenses The style of the league is called : "The Pro gressive League of Thibodaux." and will hold its regular sessions every third Wednesday in each month.

Imperialism a Foe to Sugar I Planuters The argument put forth by the Lily White Republicans of Louisiana, I of protection to sugar, rice and lum her by the election of McKinley, fails of effect when confronted by the imperial policy which is adding sugar and rice producing colonies to the United States. Hawaii, Cuba and Puerto Rico and the Philippine Is lands are better adapted to the growth ot cither sugar or rice than South Louisiana, and it is preposterous to suppose that the products of these countries will be taxed any great length of time to pay tribute to Louls ana planters, even though each and everyone in the 8tate should vote the Republican ticket. The trusts behind the annexation scheme are wealthier and have more influence in Jepubli. circles than have our planters, and as they are not backing the steal of these countries through benevolent motives, it is reasonable to suppose that they will reap all the beneita to be her vested. When the Philippines are quieted In their resistance to the plan of "benevolent assimilation," the country becomes developed by American brains and energy, sugar plantations in Louisansa will follow the Attalktapaa cattle industry. Imperialism means nothing short of I destruction to the sugar industry ofl this State. The howl raised over the Puertsa Rican tariff foreshadows what our planters are to expect a the future should imperialism triumph. The Democratic party is where Louisiana planters should be found if they rbally desire protection. The "tarif for revenue" is where sugar will receive that protection.-Baton Roouge Troth. Remember the Fair. There Is but little doubt that there I will be an immense crowd at the fair to be given by Th-bodaux Fare Com. pany No. 1. on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, Sept 8-9 and 10. An excursion is advertised to ran from Lake Charles to Thibodaux on Sunday, the 9th inst and it is reason. able to suppose that a great many persons from intermediate towns will visit our city on that occasion and attend the fair. There will be quite a number of amusements, among which one or two base ball games will be played between crack teams. The Fire Com. pany is making ample preparations in the way of refreshments of all kinds tfo guests. It should be borne in mind that the Fire company is giving this fair for the purpose of meeting a mort. gage debt on the Opera House, which the company bought some years ago, and has spent several thousands of dollars to improve sal malutamn since for the enjoyment and amuse. ment of the people. What would our city be without an opera house ? So, it will be seen that the efforts of Fire Company No. 1. are not directed to their own per. sonal benefit, but to maintain a build. ing in first class condition for the general entertainment of the public. Therefore, the Fire company justly deserves the heartiest support of the community and judging by the past the Sentinel believes they will receive c it. -------ýýý-- tt Notice. Prof. L. M.

The members of the new Board of Parish schools met in the offee of Thou. A. Badeaux Esq, on Tudday, the 28th alt, and organized by electing Dr. Thomas K. Stark, preui dent, and Thomas A. Badeaus, Su perintendent and Secretary. The salary of the Superintendent was fixed at 800, per annum. By res. nlotion of the Board all teachers, who have heretofore been employed, will be retained unless removed for cause. The two Toms caught the oflcial prizes, but uas they are both compe. tent and efficient gentlemen in their professional busines, there s no doubt that they will put the same energy into the eause of education and maintain our public schools up i to a high moral and intellectual standard. It was resolved by the Board that the schools be reopened on the farst Monday in September for a sesion of eight months. C. U. WILLAISn. In Memorlan. The subject of this sketch, Capt. SC. C. Williams was born in 1833 in the parish of Lafourche, La. His fa'her beingone of the pioneer plan. i ters of that section. Capt. Williams firstattended schJol in Kentucky from which State his father came, tLen, he spent several years in New Orleans, after which he I was employed as general and freight Agt. by the Morgan Railroad Co.! (now Southern Pacific), at Lafourche Crossing, and for a number of years owned and conducted a Barge line, known as the "Willihams Barge Line'" in connection with the Southern Pacific. During the lapse of 46 years that he remained in the service of that company, he fulfilled his duties wiih an unfailing zeal and integrity. When the country became involved in war, Capt. Williams, although of a conservative mind, heaitated not to join the ranks of the confederate army, leaving behind a lucrative position and a young wife. At the cloe of the war, he found himself destitute of all the means he had previously possessed, but being en dowed with a rare rmount of energy ani faith, he courageously set to work again in order to repair his losses, which attempt was rewarded with ample and well.merited success. Possessed of a genial and happy disposition, Capt. Williams knew how to draw men to him. and during the long period in which he carried I on daily transactions with a great number of persons, he always main tained himself in their friendship and esteem. Nothing could be more convincing of this than to see the unfeigned ezpressiou of sorrow on the coun tenance of the many colored hands in his employ, some of whom were born and reared on his father's plantation and who felt that they had lost their best friend in the death of "Marse Charley" as they fami:arly called him. Although belonging to no particu. Iar religions sect, Capt. Williams respected every good creed, and be. lieved in the tenets of free-masonry of which he was an esteemed mem, ber. Few men could have a better plea and endearments of a well-to-do southern. plauter, father of a large family of noble sons and daughters, and. enjoying the respect of many friends and neighbors, he must have felt it harsh to be summoned away from all he loved and prized, but still, when the certainty of an incura ble malady was made known to him, he neither faltered nor repined. Whatever the sacrifice may have cost him, he murmured not, and with a meek and patient spirit, bowed to the inevitable. In the words of the poet, he may have said: "Sunset and evening star, And one clear call for me. And may there be.no mourning at the bar, When I put out at sea." The family that is left to deplore wife, formerly, Miss Dora B. Cross ; of five daughters, Mrs. Presley K. Ewing of Houston, Tea. Mrs. Harry Bush of Honma, La. Mrs. Beverley Smith of Franklin, La. Misses Minnie and Ruby Williams, and four sons, Messre. Joe, Willie, Morgan and Warren. To them all. we say, *"Come, ye, discosolate, where'er ye languish, Come at the shrine of God fervently kneel, There bring your uronded hearts, these lay your angush, Earth hath no sorrow which Hesven can not beaL" A suNsn.
