The man who tells the Sboy or young man to be pru dent in early life is giving him the most sound adtvice Spossible. Look at the histories of Sthe substantial men of Amer iea. Here's one, for example. Daly, the '"Copper King" com menced his struanggle for for tune, as he once stated in his cl'aracteristic manner "born in Jairsey City in a wagin and wurricked- for two dollars a wake" yet by reason of pru S dence and regular, if small, savings, he secured enough to launch himself on his won derful mining eareer. S Had he never saved the pennies'of his yoath, he would never have been able to even start prospecflng. Your opportunity is on the way, young man! Are you ready with the necessary ready caah? If nat; why not? Ie. 5. .blsitanx. gyff L P. Shlaver, PRESIDENT. ~q. .ASHIEr l:emcmber thoce C'onsultations Rooms up stairs - at your strviue7.6 Let the Decision be Rescinded m a1 Sometime ago the Lafourche Btsin !w .vee Boatd decided by a vote of' ti fve to four to sell all the public tr lands in Its district to a syvndicate, said to be composett principally of Jefferson gentlemen, for the price of th thirteen and one half cents per acre. al Soon after this dlecision of the board, the prospective purchasers were given an option on the lauds at le the price fixed, and on putting up a forfeit of $250. We are glad to see that the action of the board was not unanlnous, andl that such strong and conservative II men as lMesr. Manrin, Mounot, Kent, and Tucker, voted against the proposition to dispose of all of the lad. ap)des the .otrol of the so it virtually a gift. We hope to see at these gentlemen at no distant day as take steps to prevent or at least de- tt lay the consummation of this pro- vi posed sale, .end to bring about the tc the reconsidleration of what seems to tr be a most ill advised decision on the as part of a bare majority of the board. de It is not too late to do this, and the o board should lose no t;mn' in doing it, even if it should have so far bound it itself as to be obliged under the Iaw c to pay the penanty fixed by law. It p wou:d make mone y by I doing it. and thereby save the lands 1 to the pcolle. b We have said that the price agreed to on is ridicu!ou ly low; it is vile, and 7 that consi leratiou alone 'would he p sufficient to advocate a rescission of C the action of the board. We believe I the iauds in the Lsfourche Basin dis. t trict to be worth more than thirteen p and a half cents an acre. We be. lieve that there are some pieces of ua swamp lands among them, and we 2 know that that kind of land is worth h considerab'y more than that price. Does the board know whether it still ti has some swamp lands, and what s quantity ? And if it does, did it c take the value of that kind of land $ into consideration in the fixing the 0 price of sale ? - But it would' seem that there are P other considerations why the board o should rescind its action, which we 4 briefly enumerate. It has been asserted that there I1 were other applicants for entry of some of these lands at a higher price 0 than the one agreed on by the boav who were termed dowa by the M board withdrawing the lands from t the market for ninety days. and that I at the expiration of the delay, the e ,'ectsion of the board to sell now E under criticism was reached, and no opportunity given to the other ap a plicants or the general public to enter a the field for public lands. a What good reason can be advanced t for thus acting ? View the question 3 as we will, it is impossible for us io t conceive of any good reason to justi Ii fy it, and we are warranted it the o conclusion that neither could the I dissident members of the board see F any, since they have recorded their i vote against the decision of the t majority. r Mlany good reasons could be given, O on the other hand, for acting different I ly and more in accord, in our humble a opinion, with the general welfare. C All applicants should have been giv en an equal opportunity to present their claims, aLd justice and fair play accorded to all. If this has not been I done, the bioard should lose no time iu rescinding its action, and reopen. ing the whole matter. It has moth. tug to lose by it, and perhaps much I to gain. It cannot be pleaded in favor of the lower price quocted to the synudi-. cate that the proposed saleas for the purpose of land reclamation and im provement, for we have not seen that I there is any obligation o o that end imposed upon the would be pIur. chasers. There lb arother con-ideration making fot the rescissinhm of -tbe-~e tion of the boardl:-it has been Mug gestared that some lublic lands are actually inclose! within the limits of private holdlings along the river and the bayou Lufoureche, and have been cleared and cultivated, in some in rtances, through error or inadvertence by the former owners of such private holdings, and have been so held ever since. If this be true than the sale of all public lands in globo to a syndicate is certain to ferment hai *assing and perhaps disastrous litigan tou. "This is a serious matter which Sparticularly concerns the rpa:ian owners of the parishes of Lafourche, SAssumption, Ascension, St. James, St. John, St. Charles, Jefferson, and Plaquemineas. It may be that there ) is nothing in this suggestion but its l bare existence should be enough to cause the board to pause before tak ing the irreparable step. If any I riparian owner has possessed in good faith, within the limits of his holing I or plantstion, any public land, which he, by himself or through his authors, has cleared anrd improved, he should Sbe permitted to enter it by privilege * sad preferenae. For all these reaseons, and others which migrt be adduced, the board r ought not to consummate the coentem plated sale s proposed by a hare majority, without sertonaly recon. ti sidering the whole mattetr. Indeed, ib we think the board should rescind its i a decision to sell, and reopen the queies, tion. The people of the levee dis o trict and the police Juries of the al various parishes interested should itd take up the matter with the ho:ard tW a the end of securing equal justice to (e all and fully protecting the general It good. If the matter is proplrly pre, sented to the board, we believe the decision will be reconsidered, and revised. But there is no time to lose; tI prompt action should be taken. Il Importance of Electrical Development. e The distace that has hme tenvel-. st~rnly broeght auts' few ago by Mr. George HI. Gibson before " the American Association for the Ad. a vancement of Science, which, devoted II to the economic influences of the elec. trical industries of Pittsburg, made a tl splendid generalization of electrical I1 development as a whole as a measure a of civilization. Recurring to his impressive figures, b it may be noted that the total electri tI cal power in kilowatts per 1,000,000 b people in the whole world outside the u United States, is 640;--Kilowatt equal 1,000 watts and 746 watts equals one n horsepower then 640 kilowatts equal to 640,000 watts,- this divided by t 746 equals 858 II. P. per million peo n ple, outside the United States;- in Great Britain, the highest outside the ' United State', 7,000 kilowatts, which L is 9383 horsepower per 1,000,000 ' persons; while in the United States it r is 26,320 kilowatts equal to 35,294 Ihorsepower per 1,000,000 people 26,320 kilowatts equal to 35,294 L horsepower per 1,000,000 people. T The total capital invested in elec. r trical umdertakings in the world out. side the United States, is 45c per L capita, and in the United States a $38 18. The miles of electrically operated railway, are, in the whole world outside the Uuited States, 4.64 per millioni people; in Germany, the 4 next highe.st of foreign countries, B 41.8 miles per million, and in the a United States, 276,2 miles per mils r lion. Even more striking is the fact that the new plant of the Manhattsa Re vated Railway, of New York City, t will have a total power, swaible for traction, of 40,000 kilowatts,-(53,619 H. P.) equal to the total electric pow. er available for traction purposes in France. Further, if we take New York City as a unit, the total power now avail able, or stortly to be available, will approximate that at present found in c the German Empire. The five (5) 1 Mammoth power houses on Manhat I tan Island have a total normal rat. t tug of 322,500 horse power, and ai maximum rating of 478,000 [I. P. i This is enough power to lift the whole ( population at the rate of 80 ft. per t minute, or much faster than an athle. tic man can for any length of time t run up stairs. In other words tht: a work of these five electrical power plants is more than could be done by all the people on the island working continuously. In the United States is developed 69o010o of all electricity available in the world, 76010 of all that portion available for traction, 76-4010 of all electric railway mileage, and 83 ioo of all trolley cars. Theae are, indeed, profoundly im pressive and suggestive figures, so far as the lighting and power of this country are concerned, and might even be carried further. If we take into account the consumption annual. ly of electrical apparatus to the Unit. ed States, aud ad] too it the amounts spent on trolley riding, electric light ing, telegraphy mad telephone service, it is soon seen that we iare spending |more as a nation for elactrigt iSe-deilty-esi'I'The sum spent on electricity osrtainly reaheure 7 to 18 *per head,,'70,000,000 people, *560, 000,001; a Agarre far suipsasing any jother nation. A Prompt Capture. While one Vincenzo Liberto, an rItalian peddler was walking last SWednesday along the Southern Paci fice track in the neighborhood of Thil,. - o:laux Junction, he was held up by Willis Allen, a negro, who attacked L him viciously with intent to rob, Sbeating him with a doubleabarreled , shot gun he was carrying. After a hard and fierce struggle which was d ended by the appearance and timely e aid of the ,oflicers and crew of the s pay tran of the Southern 'Pacifc, the .o would be robler and murderer made . his escape. Mr. Owens, the pay y master in charge of the train after t rescuing the Italiana, steamed up to g Schriever and at once telegraphed the b incident to sheriff Beary who detailed a, without deJlay Deputies Dupre, Roger Id and Tucker on the case. These elf P cient okicers went at once with the blol hoends and the negro was rs trailed to the Devil's swami', and rd across it to Lsafourche swamp where .- he was treed by the bounds and cap re tared by the odeers, after a chase of two or three hours. The accuasd has' been fully identlifid by his victim' andl others. This prompt capture and a similar one which occurred a week or two ago, with the help of the hounds. demonstrate how useful these faithful animals are to our ofllcers, when calledl into resiquisition when the trail is fresh and certain.
