A TERRIBLE TRAGEDY. Governor Knoblkch Shot to Death on the Streets by James Cherault. d Accused Admitted to Bail. t Last Monday morning our usually o quiet community was startled and I electrified by the sad news of the It tragie killing of ex Lieutenant Gov- Y sr-or Clay Knobloch by James ti Cherault. The news spread rapidly a and expressions of regret and sorrow a were beard on all sides as eager in-. t quirie for the particulars of the 4 terrble tragely were made as people mt passing to and fro or ceogre edsele sma bMeets hue sd th P to discuss the sad occurrence. d At first particulars were scarce tl and hard to get. but gradually it h became generally known whabut had taken place after the report of the first shot fired. Prior to this first sLot no oth.-r eye witness than the accusedl himself has to the present writing been foundl; anod according to his testimony given on the preliminary trial, after some conversation about a matter which had been previously broached to hm by the deceased on two separate previous ccasions, and about which the deceased had threatened to ki:i his (Cherault's) son Eddie, the de ceased remarked: 'I've got a double barreled shot gun, loaded with buck shot, and I am going to kill her father, her brother, and Eddie, your son." That thereupon, Cherault said: "If it comes to that, Governor, I will be a witness against you for what you have told me since last Friday night." That then the de ceased took a step or two backwards towards the edge of a show window, and drew his pistol on Cherault; whereupon Cherault quickly drew his weapon and commenced fring and kept up firing until the deceased's pistol dropped, then turned and walk al sway towards the court house, and surrendered himself on the way thereto to constable Max Dupr6 whom be met, and to whom he said In answer to a question as to what had happened: "Thank God I I was quicker than the Governor." The whole unfortunate oceurrece was a matter of very abort duration, sad took plane at a time when there were few people about The seems of the tragedy was on Main street, a few feet (25 or 30) from the Cherault Barber Shop. Dr. Fleetwood, who was at his drug store, corner Main and St. Philip streets, with has back to the scene, bad his attention at tracted by the first shot. He turned tl at once, saw the second and subse- 0 quent shots, and ran to the place o where the tragedy occurred, a dis- ti tanee of about sixty feet; the deceas- F ed had sunken to the ground and was unconscious when he reached these- 8 so quick had everything taken place. P Within a very few minutes, asses- P tance had reached the unfortunate Il man who was in a dying condition, and measures of relief at once inas- cl gurated. Drs. Fleetwood and P. J. * Dansereau having pronounced his * case hopeless, the priest was hastily t summ:oned, and Rev. Father Dubourg reached his side in quick order, and I hurriedly ministered to him before he tl passed away. Dr. Fleetwood who was the first to reach the unfortunate dying man saw a pistol near his body on his left side, which when examined by Sherif Beary who got there four or five minutes after the shooting, was found to he a 32 calibre Smith & Wesson, with all the chambers fully loaded. This is the pistol which, according to C'herault's testimony, the deceased o had drawn on him and with which he tried to shoot hmun. Why the pistol was not discharge cannot be explsto ed except on the theory that Ch'rault 5 was too quiek In his actiob tot the deceased, saod that his Inrt shot took seet sad disabled the deceased. o The sad uasir is uaiversally de plored; the deceased having been a man of much prominence in the paulshb; Cherault a respected citizen; and the two had been always looked upon as good friends The prdlim loary examination of James Cherault was held on Tuesday afternoon, the State being represented by Distr.ct Attorney W. P. Martin, and the ae clsed by the law firm of Cugnet & Knobloch, and upon it's conclusion the accusel was released on bond by 1 Judge Caillouet.

Our metropolis, New Orleans, was literally in charge of the Confederate Veterans this week, who held a three days' reunion there. The "oIl boys 1 in grey" were in evidence every where and "there was nothing too good for them." They had come from all over the South and there were thousand le of them. There were parades, re nions, speech-making, hand-shak logs, yelling-the old Confederate' yell-yarn spinning ,ad libitdum, and the thousand and one little things and w acts which go to make a successful f social affair and tend to confer upon the participants what the world is agreed to call "a good time." No doubt, the old -'vett" have had "a good time" of it all, and we of the presset gl ersUo rejoice that they did;'ad eulettein the hope and utter the wish that they may live long to have many other annual reunions a repetition of tlhat 'good time." in Mrs. Fred Untath.

" he Racket Building Jackson St., one block from Mahu St. We borrow from the goutheroe t Me~senger: a The Casket declares that .'the sing. w gingr of a non union man" is no more morally wrong than the deliberate so ruining of another man's busincw. d ,The latter is just as wrong as the a former," says our esteemned cootem-i a poraryr. "The independent buslnes c man is considered an enemy of the at trust or combine; the con union man,te in enemy of the union. There is this hlaerence, however; any workman may join the union; not every iade iendent business man may join the :ombiue, but only those whom the )rganisers of the combhie think it worth while to admit. There is an. >ther dilerence; when capital com nite its acts of violence, labor suffers; when labor conmmit its acts of vin ence, lahor suffers again; it pays the >enalty of its crime. Capital never uffers, never bears any penalty at he hand of Labor; it only suffers when overcome by supe; or capital. Pllrefore, our sympathies are always with labor."
