The State Legislature.
7he legiaslature of the State of
Louisiana which convened this week in j
Baton Rouge, will he li session

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

T they shon!d be framed in pain Ian

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

and irrepressible colleagues, who are

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

Blues, however, put up a good game

their team the proper encourage.men'
we feel satisfed that the Houma team
