An Interesting Meeting at t
the Cut Off.
The editor had the pleasure of
sttending a meeting of the Lafourche
Democratic mother club at Cut Off;
last Sunday. The meeting, which as
the second of the organization, was)
held in the Cut Off school house and
was well attended. Besides the regu
lar business there were speeches made
by the following gentlemen who had b:
been invited to address the club:1
Judge L. P. Caillouet, Messrs. J. A.
0. Coignet and F. L. Knobloch. The
speakers devoted themselves to ex
pounding principles of Democracy
sad to setting forth the advantages
to be derived from organization.
Tit. Tweatieth entary grass Band
furnished the music for the occasin.
This band is domiciaed at the Cut
Off and it reflects great credit upon
the lattle village. It was organized
by Mr. Jos. H. Price, the able and
progressive principal of the Cut Off
pablic school, and it has made rapid
progress under his tuition and leader
ship.
The Lafourcbe Democratic mother
club was organazed at Lockport in the
early part of April, and Is a growing
institution; about 25 or 30 new mem
bers were enrolled at last Sunday's
meeting. There Is no reason why its
membership should not Increase
rapidly for it is devoted to the interest
of the party and all democrats within
its terratory should join it.
Before adjournment, the club
gracefully elected the three speakers I
and ye humble servant, the editor of
the Sentinel, honorary members of
the club, a compliment which was I
highly appreciated by the recipients.
The Club has decided to hold its '
next meeting on the fourth Sunday
of this month at the Folse School

The Southern Sentinel takes excep.
tion to our assertion in a reenut issue,:
that "Blanch:u ; stan'is absolutsly no
show aitho';t the stupport anhI in
fluence of 6cunat'r I cster. lie is a
of the most unpopular men that could
have been selected." It characterizes
the assertion as "vituperation and!
abuse of the candidate."
The Sentinel is informed, in all sin
cerity, thit The Felicianas does not
approve of or indulge in "vitupera I
tion or abuse" of any one. It does
not regard such methods as dignified I
or becoming either gentlemen or jour
nalism. With all due respect to both I
the public and private character of I
Justice Blanchard, and the exalted i
position he occupies. The Fehcianas I
reasserts its honest convictions, as
expressed in the foregoing words. I
Furthermore, it believes the adminis. I

such an extent that it may induce I
them to throw their support to some

What editor Dawkins, of the Mon
roa News, says in the following, is
true:
"The people of New Orleans are I
still insisting on a visit from Roose- a
velt. Why don't they practice what ti
they preach, and let him alone ? His a
love for the negro, and his socIability a
with the negro they denounced and (1
now they are begging him to come to t
New Orleans in order that they may t
do him honor. The Southern people u
should never invite him to be their c
guest. They should let him stay in [
Washington and never go about him." 'I
If the people of the South would f
be a little more consistent in their t
treatment of these agitators it would
go a lorng way toward suppressing I

The Deadly Cigarette.
A recent telegram frwm Philadel
phia says:
Instructions positively forbidding
the use of cigarettes by those em
pIoved in the passenger service of
the New York Divisiqon of the Read
ing Railroad have been issued by Mr.
Fulimore, passenger trainmaster.
Dismissal from the employ of the
road is the I'enalt3 for failure to
obey the mandate.
"gMen who smoke cigarettes are apt
to have lapses of memory aol i. is
not safe to trust the live of passen
gers in (he hands of persons who
have that failng."
The Instruetions wot only forbid
the use of cigarettes by the me.
while on duty, but also when they
are off duty.
Odicers of the road say that the
company has always refused to em
ploy men known to be cigarette
smokers.
The day is coming, and may it he
speeded, when cigarette smoking will
be a bar to any first class position.
There is no habit more offensive, or
more destructive of mind and morals
than the baneful one of cigarette smok
ing and it Is the distlact.ve duty of
everyone to discourage it in every
possible way. -Vicksburg American.

"St. Petersburg, April 25.-(Taken

in order to escape the censor.)-The
anti Jewish riots in Kishinev, Bessar
abia, are worse than the censor will
permit to pultish. There was a well
laid-out plan for the general massacre
of Jews on the day following the
Russian Easter. The mob led by
priest and the general cry, 'kill the
Jews,' was taken up all over the city.
The Jews were taken totally unaware,
and were slaughtered like sheep. The
dead number 120, and the injured
about 500. The scenes of horror
attending this massacre are hevond
description. Babes were literally
torn to pieces by the frencied and
bloodthirsty mob. The local police
made no attempt to check the reign
of terror. At sunset the streat were
piled with corpses and wounded.
Those who could make their escape
Bed in terror and the city is now
practically deserted of Jews.
"Just its in the riots of 1880 1881,
there is a popular belief among the
Russian pes5aiits that the Czar de
