PRESIDENT. J " - -- ( odrX,..a.· ,ASHIER. "The Parish Printing." The police Jury at its last session t elected the proprietor of the SENTINEL 1 the parish printer for the ensuing a year. In doing so it acted strictly l within the law which provides that it! "shall be their (Police Juries') duty ) to elect a parish printer for their res 1 pective parishes, who shall be the owner or representative of some es tabltshed newspaper, published in the c parish, which has been in existence c for a period of one year next preced- a ing the election. The person sot selected shall designate a newspaper s publithed in the parish, which paper shall be known as the official journal r of the parish, and shall publish in i such newspaper all th" official pro I eeedhgp of the poli ajury and all e such notices as may be required by t law to be publi-hed by the police 1 jury." a The law further fixes the compen. a sation of the publi- ilinter, and e - ( fera upon him the right to demand the compensation so fixed. The law is plain; it makes it the 3 duty of the police juries to elect a I parish printer,- ,it shall be their a duty to elect a parish Irinter, etc." not to parcel out the parish printing t among two or more persons. e Under the plain letter of the law, a the police jury should not and ought a not to elect two parish printers, any a more than it could elect two parnsh treasurers. The office of parish pront er is created by law, and his election c also regulated by law, just as that of I the parish treasurer, and the police f juries are governed by the law in tilling those two offices, which are not a of their creation. In selecting fiscal t agencies the police juries have greater q freedom of action, and may select c two agents if they so choose, the a chatter addressing Itself to their c sound discretion. I Such being the law of the case, • and the police jury of lafourche hay. a ing acted strictly within and accord ing to law, we think our esteemed I neighbor, the Lafourche Comet, does . the jury a serious injustice in taking 1 it to task for Its action in the matter I of the election of a parish printer. I We hardly think the members of the I jury will feel like thanking the Comet for trying to excuse them by plead-. nlug for them the baby act. It relieves i them of any responsibility in theI premiet .Leuse, says t Comet, in I ri-,'eý y dk'noMt knobt -~ .b4 were doing. "The members of the jury in the caucus treated us unjustly, we believe unintentionally. They did so because they had not time to reflect over the situation." Indeed i did the critic of the Police Jury really intend this left handed compliment ? These gentlemen do not deserve such treatment. They are intelligent men and honest public servants, and they knew what they were doing; they were discharging according to law a duty imposed up. on them by law. But what is this great injustice the Comet complains of ? Simply that the Police Jury did not again this year divide the parish printing be. tween the Comet and the SENTINEL as it did last year. We have quoted the law governing the case; the jury acted strictly within and according to law in the premises; that ought to be sufficient answer to the accusation brought against the jury. The Comnet thinks, however, that last year's arrangement should have been kept up as a reward for what it has done for the Democratic party in the past, and conveys a threat of what it might do in the future against that party or some of its members, in case the police jury does not recon. sider its action and again admit the Comet to a share of the public print ing. We regret that the Comet has made this statement, because we had been pleased all these years to look upon its democracy as genuine and disln. terested, and not only pmrse deep. We would fain believe that the Comet has doe itself as justice by its hasty utterance, just as a child setiag in a pet says and does things which be does not mean and afterwards regrets. SBut this is not a question of re wards; and if it were, has not the C~onset enjoyed the town printing for years ? has it not been the sole parish Sprinter at one time some years ago ? And all of this during thirteen years of extstence. The Comet havmg brought ts dew ocracy into the discussion of the pub. lie printing, the SENTINEL may not be tasked with vainglory for adverting 3 to the fact that it has been a Demo cratic paper since its foundation over thirty.six years ago, some years be. fore its present proprietor was born, and during that long period of time its various owners and editors have all been staunch Democrats. Indeed, the SarrtnaL fought the battles of the democraty in thus parish, when it meant almost financial ruin to do so, and it is justly proud of the record it has made iu that line. The present proprietor of the SEN. TINEL is also proud of th.t record, and intends to continue to "hew to the line," the same as in the past, "let the chips fall where they may." L. The proprietor of the SENTINEL eti highly appreciates and will continue pl to appreciate the favors shown him in hy Democrats and the police jury, and the 9ENTINEL will Continue to wi labor for the general welfare.
