THE CIRCUIT COURTS.
Our article of a few weeks ago suggest
ing, an amendment to the constitution re
modeling the judiciary system so as to do
away with the manner in which the present
circuit courts are composed, and establishing;
sasther and a better system, has met with
favor among the members of the legal profes
s"ooU
The Baton Rouge Advocate, usually so
correst and sound on all questions, takes is
sue with us and opposes a change. It be-I
lioves that it is better to leave well alone,
and has no faith in an elective Judiciary.
We advised an amendment similar to the
one proposed by the legislature of 1894 with
elective judges. In other words, the old sys
tem under the constitution of 1879, with the
judges to be elected by the people of the
respective districts instead of by the Legisla
ture. We are not particularly wedded to
that system, but we favor and do want a
change that will leave the district judges in
charge of their respective districts, to do
duty as trial Judges. The complaints we
heard in conversation with members of the
bar all over the Mtate made us advise the
change.
Another, and probably a better system,
and which we have heard seriously discuss
ed, is the creation of two circuits courts of
appeal, presided over by three judges, elected
by the people. This court would siv in the
central places and hear appeals from the
neighboring parishes. This like the first
system suggested, would provide for us a sta
tionary court, which would give equal satis
faction to the Supreme court. District judg
es as a rule are elected for their fitnesý and
ability as trial judges, and while many are
equally capable of fulfilling the duties of a
court of last resort, they have not the time
nor can the interests of their judicial districts
permit them to devote the labor necessary to
perform the work of the appellate court as it
should be done. The people demand a
change. They should have it,
Money is no consideration when it comes
In the question of having a good, effective
and able judiciary system. England's good
system is due to the fact of large salaries be
ing paid the judges and thereby composed of
the best legal talent of that country., The
system we propose would cost but a little
more probably than the present one, but it
would be such a decided improvement that
the people would be glad to jay it.
As to making the judges elective we be
lieve the best and wisest method, and uiaoe
Io accord with the public wish and the public
demand.
The Legislature should by all means con
aider seriously tbis most important subject.
A KNOTTY PROBLEM,
The theological world is now being agi
tated over the question of the immortality of
the souL A I~ebyterian miuister of New
York. Dr. Parkhurst, declared that the im
mortality of the soul depended upon the man
ner Ia which we took care of it on earth.
The souls of the good, he claims, would be
Inimor44l hut those of the wicked would
perish. That is the sum and substance of
his views. D~r. Parkhurst is not upheld by
the ministers of his church who hold contra
ry opinions. The discussion promises to be
very interesting. Like all theological ques
tliosther. never will bg an end to It. Iu
the mteantime let every one be on the safe
-side: act always right and hews good on
earth that reward ozn High will surely come.
-fhat Is the only way to get around the knot

TO-DAY.
e Today is the anniversary of that patriot
who was "grst in peace, first in war and first
in the hearts of his conntrymen."
n In every hamlet village and city in these
United States the name of Washington will
' be praised and honored and his deeds re
counted to the generation yet untaught. that
they in turn might hand his name down to
everlasting posterity.
No name in the annals of American his
. tory is respected and revered and held is
?greater veneration than that peerless and
matchlets statesman who won for himself the
, proud distinction of being called The Father
of His country. It is useless t9 mt-ntion the
hardships and misfortunes and the sufferings
and di sappointmeiuts enconitý-red by \Vash
ington while laboring and fighting in the in
)terest of his countrymen. as every child
- throughout this broad Ameriran Republic is
conversant with his whole life.
His fame is as durable as his principles.
as lasting as truth and virtue themselves.
1ItWhile hundreds whom party exeitement. and
temporary circumstances, have raised into
i trarsient notoriety. sink again, like thin bub
bles, bursting and dissolving into the great
ocean. Washington's fame is like the rock
which bounds that ocean, and at whose feet
its billows are destined to break harmlessly
forever,
Monuments have been erected in many
of our large American cities as a means of
perpetuating the name of this selfsacrificing
patriot, and as an object lesson in history for
the thousands of little children who daily
wend their way to schooL But these mon
ments like the Acropolis at Athens or the
f Parthenon at Rome will crumble and decay,
1 but the deeds of G&rwe Washington are so
deeply implanted in the hearts of every
American that his memory shall forever be
t kept fresh in the minds of his countrymen
until the end of time.
Delegate Rodney, of New Mexico, is Irish
I and, of course, a flowery orator. He gave
the House committee on Territories, before
which he appeared in advocacy of Statehood
for his Territory, the following sample of
what he could do in that line:
u "Why, gentlemen, one may stand upon
t an elevation near the central part of the Ter
ritory and to the north view the ruins of that
s civilisation which existed when Adam was a
boy, farther on one sees the snowcrowned
$ summit of Pike's Peak and the rugged slopes
of the Rockies, then, turning to the eastward,
e one is able to behold the distant plains of
1 eastern Texas. To the southward you may
ý. see as far as El Paso and across the beautiful
Rio Grande and into Old Mexico, and so clear
is the air that to the westward the eye sees
e beyond the arid plains of Arizona the tower
C ing heights of the Sierra Nevadas, kissed by
it the golden sunset. Why, gentlemen of the
tcommittee, so pure, so clear, so unpolluted
Ltand so clarified is the atmosphere of New
Mexico, that I have stood in the streets of
e- Albuquerque on a starlit night, calm and
a still, and with my naked eye I've traced the
distant plnets on their flying courses
isthrough the ethereal heavens with better vi
sion and greater accuracy than when I stood
2. in Boston and watched them by the aid of
the greatest telescope that the genius of mod
ern man ever builded. Why, so clear aind
pure ia the air. There is no telling how
much higher Mr. Rodney would have soared,
but at this point Chairman Knox, who is a
1. hard-headed man of business who wouldn't
know a poetical idea if he met it in the road,
put in his oar and said : "Pardon my inter
R' ruption. but, Mr. Rodney, whatever may be
2. the advantages of New Mexico in other res
1- pects, don't you think it a mighty poor place
for an oculist ?"
e The New Orleans Cotton Exchange haa
& expelled two of its members, Henry C. New
If man and Hiarry Hyman. These parties were
accused of making fraudulenit and dishonesi
yreturns. To be more explicit they were con
Svicted of sending out cotton sales for less
'e than they actually obtained thus defrauding
e. their customers. A planter from East Carrol]
parish caught up with the dishonest transac
Stion, bills of sale sent him showed that hia
'e cotton was sold for a fraction above 8 centa
n when in reality it sold for more than 10 centa
p.,Charges were preferred against these
t- rties, they were investigated by the Cottov
~ xchange and having been proven the namee
of the two guilty parties wore stricken fron,
the rolls and expelled from the association.
a Such rascally conduct is deserving of more
tr dati punishment than the one imposed.
Avoyelles Blade.
'*We fully agree that more drastic mesa
ures should be meted out to these parties
,.who have been defrauding the people foi
a many yeare by their thieving and wholesale
Srobbery practices. If the charges are true
we see no reason why these baldfaced thieves
p; .should not be prosecuted in our criminal
jvourts Rnd meat to the State Penlteutiary.
