State Superintendent Calhoun has made! the first apportionment for the public schools. It is the largest on rertord. Lafourche with its 9.396 edneable children receives out of the apportionment fund the sum of $5.167.h0. The assessment rolls of this parish show that there are only 27 negroes who are over 21 years of age owning property amounting: to not less than $3tv-, and who by reason of! this fact are entit!e4 to register and vote at all elections. The Baton Rouge Truth says that the deeds of c uelty practiced on the Phillipines, a people struggling for liberty as did our forefathers, should cause a blush of shame to mantle the cheek of every American who loves honesty and fair play. The following well deserved compliment was paid our honored and much esteemed State Senator by the Capitolian Advocate: Senator Will H. Price of Lafourche, handsome as a prince, courteous as a Chester field and genial as the typical Southern gen tleman that lie is, was a visitor at the Capital yesterday. The Missionary a monthly Journal says, that though martyrdom by the pcaffold of the sword be past, there are other martyr doms to be suffered. There is the martyrdom of charity in the pestilence, the martyrdom of seal in wearing out life and strength for the souls of men: there is the martyrdom of a will prompt and ready for life or death in be half of the truth and the Church. The Lafayette Gazette in comment ing on a bill recently passed by congress which carried with it an appropriation of $40,000 to entertain Prince Henry, of Ger many, who will soon visit this country says, that it is a damnable outrage to squander WO.(A)0 of the people's money to pay ob sequi ous homage to a man because he happens to be a brother of the Emperor of Germany. A FITTING RECOGNITION. Ir. J. L. M. Curry, connected with the Peabody and other educational funds, and well known to the people of this State, has been appointed special envoy extraordinary and minister plenipotentiary to represent this country at the coming of age of the King of Spain. Dr. Curry was minister to Spain at the time of the birth of the young King and it is interesting to hear him relate of the custom prevailing in that old world nation when an heir to the throne is born. The President oould not have appointed a better or more able man, and it will be gra tifying to Dr. Curryto return to Spain on such an occasion. He served our country well as our representative at the court of Spain and the appointment is a fitting recog nition of the past services of this truly good man. EXCELLENT ADVICE. The people of our State are continually wondering how it is that Crowley is making such unparalleled strides in the field of pro greess, but if the following which is taken from the Crowley Signal ls carefully read more light will probably be thrown upon the matter. Hear this excellent advice: Crowleyites should make it a practice when traveling never to misse an opportunity to put in a good word for the town. Talk Crowley on the trains, on the streets, in the botel lobbies, be interviewed and dont be afraid of saying too much, as Acadia parish and Southwest Louisiana haven't a peer in the whole United State. Talk Crowley to everyone, everywhere, all the time. The people of Thibodanx should profit by thin advice. We have many reasons to feel proud of our town and want of words on part of our people should never be lacking whenever the occasion presents itself. Few parishes in the State can compare with La fourche and few towns with Thibodaux in wealth, resources and advantages; none can excel our population in intelligence hospital Ity, and enterprise so we should talk Thibo daux on the trains, on the streets, to every one, everherywher and all the time. GIVE US YOUR A ll). The SEn-TTEL is devoted to the beet in terests of the community in which it is pub lished. To build up and advance the ma terial prosperity of Lafourche parish will be its constant aim. Whatever is published in these columns, we wish it to be distinctly understood. is done, "with charity to all. and malice to-wards none." While the SErnT1Fn will discuss political questions as it is the duty of every public journal, and while our utterances will always be heard without doubtful meaning. we wish to subordinate these political issues to those nearer t!he heart of our people : the material enhance ment. industrial, commercial and agricultur al. of our great parish. To accomplish our work we need the co-operation of our peplle. Correspondence from every section of our parish is solicited. We want to publish everything that tran spires of interest and advocate every move ment that hat has a tendency to improve and I better our condition. Give us your aid, seriously and actively. Sand we will make old Lafourche boom with prosperity from centre to circumference. Send us your items of news, disclose to us your projects, subscribe to and advertise in the SE.rIxEL and you will see how well it pays to aid a worthy enterprise. United we are strong and can accomplish a great deal. The SENTINE-L is not published for us alone but for the peopl-, whose zealous champion of their rights it will ever be fud der or no fodder. A WORTHY CAUSE. Our esteemed contemporary, the St Ber nard Voice, is "striking telling blows" in be half of the cause of public education. Al ways zealous in the advocacy of whatever will redound to the people of the section in which it is published, it upholds to-day a movement started in St. Bernard to build public school houses. The step taken by the citizens of our sister parish should be imitat-, ed by other parishes. When money is the great desideratum to conduct our free schools the citizen cannot employ his funds more ad vantageously than to aid in building and rendering effective the public school system. Every locality desiring a school should offer the School Board at least the house to teach! in. It would cost but a few dollars to each family and would show that spirit of enter-i prise and go-aheaditivenees which is so de sirable to be found in every American com-, munity. The free school is to educate the masses-to prepare them for society and citi zenship-and as Dr. Alderman, of Tulane University, very properly says, "is as much for all as the electric light, water works and parks." He who neglects the cause of educa tion does himself and his country a great in justice. We cannot express it more forcibly and appropriately than in the words of the Voiace, which says: Public education is one of the most im portant questions which can be considered by a civilized, intelligent and progressive people. In fact, the condition and standing Iof a community is measured by the advan Stages which it offers for educating its chil dren. Upon education depends the future of any place on the globe-whether it will be peaceful, prosperous and progressive, or whether it will retrograde and do justice to the days in the dark ages. The relation which education bears to government indivi dual well-being and general advancement is too evident to require expatiation. No peo ple are capable of self-government who do not possess the blessings of education. They are unfit to govern themselves, because they do not have the very first qualification-the ability to judge and know what is good and I best for them. Some of the country papers of Louisiana are still harping on the gubanatorial ques tion. Why this should be troubling them to such a considerable extent is beyond our Scomprehension. We do not believe that the agitating of political questions a year or two ahead of time will prove injurious to the peo pie, but we rather think that such discus sions are too premature as we once had oc casion to say editorially a few weeks ago. A question "causing much discussion" at Washington is whether Special Ambassa dor Whitelaw Beid, the civic representative of this austere Democracy at the coronation of King Edward of England, shall or shall t not wear knee-breeches, says the New York SJournal. It is fitting that the large minds responsible for the sending of the embassy Sshould oonoern themselves with this vital J matter. It is also natural that the bead of r cold perspiration should glisten on their ma - jeetic foreheade. The agony of uncertainty Sis far harder to bear than any decision can be. In our judgment, however, there is no 'just ground for this painful auxiety at the I republic's capital. Edward VII is a gracious monarch, and if properly approached there is every reason to believe that he will consent ' to the appearance of Mr. Reid at the corona tion without his trouers.--T-D.
