It seems that the Legislature cannot be
prevailed upon to pass any anti-trust Legisla
tion. This igreatly to be deplored. Agree- t
pmeuts or combinations between firms, corpor
ations or individuals, for whatever purpose
Mpay it be, is a trust, and one that most prove
injurious to the people. These combinations C
Are generally made to regulate the prices of
certain goods. No sooner done than another C
trust is formed to control all these goods,
and the result is an increase of price all !
along the line. The firms or corporations in
the trust grow wealthy and the people be
pomp more and more impoverished.
Trusts are undemocratic and un-Ameri
can, and should not be tolerated in our coun
try. The ppople have waited long and par
tiently for legislation to protect them againt t
the shyloosk, the trupts the monopolies.
They have appeale4 to public authorities, to
the oonopoa of the United States, and to the
Legislature of the different States and a
deaf ear was turned to their appeals. A

The correspondent of the Daily States at
Baton Rouge writes the following to his
"Congressman Broussard, at the request
of the parochial affairs committee, has drawn
a substitute for the Marrero bill looking to
the granting of authority to police juries to
give street railways the privilege of running
over the public roads. It will be remember
ed that General F. F. Myles and friends,
having projected an electric road in the
Teche section and having secured grants over
the public roads of the parishes they desire
to operate in, were preparing to carry their
enterprise into effect when the Supreme
Court intervened 1nd declared that police
juries were incompetent to grant such fran
"Mr. Broussard has taken those sections
of the city charter of New Orleans which
refer to the sale of franchises for street rail
roads as the basis of his substitute. If it is
passed it will not only clear the way for the
building of the Montegut electric line and
the New Iberia-Morgan City line, but it will
provide a means for the disposal of similar
franchises such as will enable the various1
parishes to share in the prosperity of electric
railway enterprises. The bill gives the right
to the police juries to dispose of the franchis
es at public auction for a percentage of the
gross receipts of the lines which acquirte
them. When an enterprise is projected the
abutting property-holderp will address a peti,
tion to the police jury setting forth their
desire for the sale of the franchise, .the
length of time it shall urn, the advertising,
the point of sale, etc Provision is made for
the sale at one time of the roads that are to
be ran through several parishes. All the ex
pensea of getting up petitions, the cost of
advertising, etc.a are, as in the city, to be
borne by the parties to whom the franchise
may be dedicated. Provision is also made
for the inspection of the books of companies I
'or corporations which secure franchises.
"'While the legislation is especially des
fired at this session to facilitate the carrying1
out of two large enterprises projected fot
southwestern Louisiana, the act has an inter
eat for the whole State, since with the pres.
ent demand for the development of transpor
tation lines into rural communities there will
-doubtless be many similar projects launched
i in different parts of Louisiana in the next
I ten or fifteen years.
I "The bill will be submitted to the paro.
I chlal affairs committee at its next meeting.
SIt will probably be introduced in both houses
s early this week.
The Secretary of the Navy yesterday an
nounced that one of the new battleships an.
o thorized by the naval appropriation bill, just
Bsigned by the President, would be named
Lpoieiana. This is in fulfillment of a pro
mise made a year ago by the Seoretary Long
to Representative Adolph Meyer, of thiis
State. This promise the present secretary
C was, of course, not bound to keep, hence the
compliment comes as a very graceful act on
his ptrt.
4s provided4 in the naval appropriation
Sbill, the Louisiana will he one of the largest
Sbattleships afloat, haviqg no equal in size lI
any foreign feet hut in the British. She
will have a 4isplacement of 18,000 tons; that
is to say, she will be a qqwrter larger than
,the Illinois, which viTtetted New Orleans last
4 winter. The ship will have a battery com
Imensurate with her large size. The State
a will have every reason to be proud to such a
:, namesake.-Picayune.

parish has got a new lease of hife by the Sn

Snew trial. He was tried at Lake Charles
and found guilty of murder and sentenced to

lower Court was that the indictment chbre4
