On Monday the President sent t the Senate for confirmation the fol lowing Louisiana nominations: Collector of Customs at New Or leans-Henry McCalL Collector of Internal Revenue, Die trict of Louisiana-William E Howell. Naval Officer of Customs, District of New Orleans-Elmer E. Wood. Superintendent of the Mint at New Orleans-Hugh S. Suthon. These appointments confirm the claim of the Lily White leaders that they would be fully recognised by the Praident, and have considerably upset the Republican faction arrayed against them. Already charges of a damaging nature, if well founded, have been made by the opposing faction to Mr. Henry McCall, and it is reported from Washington that charges will be formulated against the other ap pointees of the President. The Wash lngton correspondent of the Picayune says in this connection: "it is the intention of the rugular Republicans to fight the confirmation of each "Lily White" appointment that has been made. In the case of Mr. Howell, who has been nominated for Collector of Internal Revenue, his testimony as a witness in the contest ed election case for Congress of Tay lor Beattie vs. Andrew Price, in 1895, will be used. He testified that he was opposed to any affiliation with the negroes and was engaged in or ganizing a white man's party. On this testimony it is argued that the "Lily White" appointments are as bitter towards the negroes of Louis iana as were the "Lily Whites" of Alabama, whom the President recent ly punished by depriving them of their offices." It than appears that the charge against Mr. Howell is not vern formi dable and certainly not discreditable to him. It is hardly probable that it will receive any serious consideration from the President, who is supposed to have made himself acquainted with Lc.MHowell's record beore appoiattag his. His many friends here, regardless of political affliation, hope, therefore, to see his appointment conirmed without unnecessary delay. As for the charges made against Mr. McCall, the SZNTIwsL does not believe that he has been guilty of any wrongdoing in the transaction with which he has been connected and will accept his prompt denial as sufficient answer, as long as the truth of the charges is not fully proves. A Philanthropist. Alexander C. Hutchinson, the Pres. ident of Morgan's Louisiana and Texas Railroad and Steamship Co died last Sunday morning at his home in St. Charles Avenue New Orleans, after a short illness. He was born in Brooklyn, N. Y. Feb. 2, 1832, and started in life as a poor boy with a common school edu. cation, and amsesed a fortune var ously estimated at from one to two million dollars.

The ieeessud, with his father, Mr. 5 Ernest Morvat, immigrated to this . parish from Lafourche, a good many years ago, and lived at Ruth, 3 miles east of town, where he was a very thriving planter. Mr. florvant had attained the age of 33 years and 8 - months, and was endowed with an exceptionally robust constitution, and the news of his death proved a great shock to his many friends in this locality. He had been coabed to his bed less than a week, but the asture of his tilaness was seek that the best medical attention proved of no avail. He leaves a wife sad four children, to whom, as also to his aged father and mother and other members of his family, we extend our condo lence.d Valley of the Teche. - 0---**--- - The Place To Go.

Seeds that grow . and seeds that don't grow; seeds that i yield and seeds that don't yield, and a little thought given now to the sel ection of the seed you'll need, will be found time well spent, though realis a ed much better at the harvest if you t select the world famed Ferry's Seeds -the kinJ that always yield. F .r nearly half a century Ferry's Seeds have been known and sown wherever I good crops are grow.. ut til farmer and gardener alike, have learned to depend upon their wonde*rful reliable growing and yielding qualities, year after year, to this exclusion of all others, Unfortunately the seed business seems to afford a meana for 'maau uaserupuloes people, who aim to blind the unwary to quality, through ttleness of prie and beastfule aims; who to reality have. nething to sub.. stantiate their claims, so reputation at stake, so past reoed asb pro.t It is better to pay a little more for the seed and be assured of a great deal more at the harvest by sowing Ferry Seeds. The 1903 Seed Annual which is sent free, postpaad, will be found unusually interesting and instructive. Write for it to day. Address, D. I. Ferry A Co., Detroit, Mich. Mr. B .
