The SENTINEL said : "People who Of cc

Eagle replies: "This we deny. We
may have used some pretty stroag the

the Thibodaux "ring." But desperate dom

Thus an issue is presented and met
by a general denial, qualified by an TI

furnished cause for an action for lest

mind that this "pretty strong lan.

as "ashuse" was applied principally gcc
to this town and its people, as ap
pears by the Eagle's own confession jo
in its apology to the good people of earl

bird which, when poised on high and to
burveyiug all below, may be privileg ha

dream not of. so
But, easy brother; let us come
down to the facts of the case. Our
recollection is, that the contrrversy
lu which the Eagle felt moved to od
defend the people "from the shafts" wi
hurled at them was a newspaper tilt, wl
In which the Eagle, on one tand, d
indulged in the exhilarating pastime
of "hurting" shafts tat this town and

Sof the Comset and the SErnTINE when th
it says it was defending them from
the shafts hurled at them by the p
Thibodaux ring?7 These papers, cm
one side, and the Eagle, on the other,
were alone in the "*shaft hurinag" H
business, and if the Eagle was also, s
9as it claims, in the "defending" bisti di
ness from *"sbaft hurling"; it would di
seem evident, that at means these two tk
papers when it speaks of "detending ha
Sthe people from the shafts hurled at PI
them by the Thibodsas ring." wi
&io here is another discovery for fe
you : the two local papers are the N
S"Thibodaux ring.' We have spotted
at last the beteausre of the Eagle,ii
Sand we are surprised to Ond that in ik
conjunction with the Comnet, th" be

the safety of the freedom "f speech
