The State Legislature. 7he legiaslature of the State of Louisiana which convened this week in j Baton Rouge, will he li session for two months. The members of this body who are addicted to the talk habit or who make it a practice to introduce bills by the cart loads are doubtless training hard to sustain their reputation. it is really unfor tunate that there should be so many wind jammers and bill hatehers in the legislative bodies of the different States, and it is to be hoped that some ingenious mind will blase away for weeding out or excluding from the legi-lstive halls this class of law makers, who arc of no value or set. vice to their State and brand tbemeel. yes as muturiety.auekers. The people have enough laws to govern them and, in f:act, it haa almost come to poas that the noeat law abiding eitli " zuai in it cowwuuity find it a diffeilt matter not to run afoul of some st. utute. The law making power should confine its&lf to the enactment of such laws as ale nec.'ssary and useful, and T they shon!d be framed in pain Ian guage, with a view of making their meaning and int&ent ehar and unmis. tukable. The tendency in construiteng laws appears to be to couch them in such terms as to convey a double mesnisig, and the result is that the power of making laws is shifted to the judges of our courts. This may not be done knowingly or purposely, but the fact remains that it legislators were more careful and painstaking in drafting laws no two interpretations would be possib'e, except ponaaiby in rare io stances, and our jurists would not be working overtime, while lawyers would not appesr so painfully igno rant and thie citizen would know his rights and those of his neighbors. Give us plain laws and as few of them as possible, and we will have peace and contentment. Some of our State law makers labor under the impression that their zeal and eiciency will be mess" ured by the number of bills they will have introduced daring during their - term of office. This, however, is a mistaken idea. A legislator does not win fame by the introdnetion of ni . merous and senseless measures, but is more likely to make his mark by P employing his energy in an effort to kill fool bills Adm prevent iniquitous enactments. There is always a good field for this character of legislative work and members of the General Assembly of the State of Louisiana who want to perform their duty fully and creditably are usualy afforded the opportunity by their over zealous and irrepressible colleagues, who are made stoop shouldered by the count. less bills which they carry and try to unload on the unsuspecting and long suffering citizens of this great com monwealth. We have a surfeit of laws. There are so many of them that no one can tell whether or not hls right to live cannot be successfully contested by some enemy and his pilgrimage on this mundane sphere brought to an abrupt close. The law makers can not be too strongly mpraessed with the importance and wisdom of cur bing their desire to pass laws on the wholesale plan. The rersonal liberty and rights of citizens of a free cone try are fast being encroached upon by the law making power and a hall mu't be called. The legislator who attempts to limit his dear people to two meals per diem will Ald Satan'. domains a cool place Ia comperison to his present hebitatmon. Now, gentlemen of the legislature Ilook wise and act sensibly. We have a right to expect that of you If you have not enacted a law which denIes us tLat right-St. Bernard Yoike.

Base Ball. Avery Interesting game of hase ball was played at the park last Sunelay between the Houma Blues and the Thibolfaux Greys. A large number e of people were is attendance and e everybody expressed themselves with Ss being highly delighted with the game though he Houma boys were out. classed in many respects by our team. A more gentlemanly set of boys could not be found than the players who composed the bouma tenm. It Not one single kick was made during th entire game on either side which S fact made the game doubly interens ting and enjoyable. The Ilouma boys played in bad luck as they were b compelled to face the Greys with'ut their hest players aiad.the pitcher at a that as he was on the sick list. The Blues, however, put up a good game ° and if the people of Houma as well i as the Times and Courier will give their team the proper encourage.men' we feel satisfed that the Houma team h with a little practice will soon be able dt to play good hall. Little sauiess in 1 never achieved where no encourage. it went is given. People of [Iloma support your team which is compo. ' ed of a jolly set of fellows and he. fore the season is over you will have cause to feel proud of them. The following score will tell the if tale of last Sunday's game. THIBODAUX GREYS. e L.B. I.
