Developing Strength.
The Houna Courier, an
able and staunchly 1)emocra- D
tic contemporary, observes in 'n
its last issue:
"The letter of W. H. Price
was greeted with a great hoot tr
by a chorus of primary or
gans; but, it appears never- l1
theless as things begin to w
take shape throughout the tc
State, that Price is a consi
derable factor in the race and la
will in all probability be the
ultimate choice for Governor. et
His strength at home and
in the neigbboring pariaies
is known and admitted, and
to this is rapidly being added
recruits from all sections in
search of a young virile lea. at
der. We shouldn't be at all ri
surprised to see the whole af. -
fair end in a stampede to the ,
gentleman from Lafourche." D
The Courier is correct, lid
Senator Price's candidacy is of
daily gaining in strength, e
and of all candidates in the ,
field, lie stands to-day the D
best chance of winning the
prize. He is a man of convic
tions and has had the moral Li
courage to express them, even
though they seemed at the
time to run counter to popu
lar sentiment, and as the peo- a
ple stop to consider the claims C
of the various candidates, A
they will not be slow to recog- cl
nize his worth, and appreciate
it at its just value. l

Dysentery Cured Without the Aid of T
a Doctor. .
"I am jast up from a hard spell of e'
the flux" (dysentery) says Mr. T. A a;
Pinner, a well known merch-int of
Drummondl, Tenn. "I used one small le
bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera co
and Diarrhoea Remedy and was cured p
with having a doctor. I consider it it
the best cholera medicine in the n
world." There is no need of employ it
ing a doctor' whed this, remedy ms i
used, for no doctor can prescribe a Is
better medicine for bowel complaint it
in any form either for children or at
adults. It never fails and is pleasant I
to take. For sale by Roth .Diug a

Commutation Recommended. re
The Attorney General and the
Lieutenant Governor of the State, a
majority of the B3ard of Pardons, C
have recommended a commutation of r
the death sentence to life imprison- rt
ment in the celebrated Batson case,
in which the accused was twice con
victed and sentenced to death for the 0
murder of the Earl family in Calca. g
sien. b
Advices from Lake Charles are
that the action of the Board has
aroused a very high deglee of indig
nation among the people of Lake
Charles and adjoining towns in
Calcasieu. and ugly threats of lynch
ing have been freely made. p
We are not familiar enough with e
the situation at Lake Charles or even a
with thile case to say whether the p
criticisms of the action of the Board b
are just, but we know that the threats e
of resortiug to lynch lr.w are most A
reprehensible, and, if carried out, ti
would taruish forever the fair name ti
and fame of the grand old empire n
pariah of Calcuasien. And judging a
from the past good records of the n
members of the Board whoie action g
has been so severely criticized, we are
firm a tthe belief that th,-y acted )
honestly and conscientiously, and, if
any mistake has been made, which
we seriously doubt, it is due only to
error of tudgement t.
But this as it may, the law should
he allowed to take its course; to
rCsort to lynch law now would he by
long odds a fouler anti blacker crime
than the one, black as It is, of which
Bataon stands couvicted.

Dear Sir:--ecrmit me to all vur I'
attention to to the next :nnal meeting
of the Trans..Mississippi (t'onimrci:ll
Congress, to h heL!d in Seattle, \'aslh,
August 8I, 19, 29, antd 21. Commer
cial organizations are entitled to one t
delegate each, anu an additional dele
gate for every fifty members. The
President of every Police Jury irs
enttt:ed to apioint one delehgitu.
Towns are cudntledl to one delhegate ,
each, with an adlllti',nal delegate for i:
every five thousalnd inh:alit:ants, to be t
appointed I by the ]:.yv r. s
In a recent interview, His hxcel
lency, Govi nor II.ard stated that lie
considered "this, one of the most im- i
portaut meetings of the year." The
influence of Ihis Congress is far
reaching, and most powerful. Louis
iana, the great gate way of this valst (
Territory, is vitally interested to its c
labors. It is therefore of the utmost d
importance that we should have a I
strong and representative delegation I
I hope you will take this matter up
at once, andl that your communlty
will add strength to the delegation, a
by sending at least one of its most
representative citizens.
Delegates names should he sent to

Seriously Ill.
Our community heard with snrrow
last Friday week the sa: initelligence
of the serlous illness of of or highly
esteemed and well ewloved fellow
parishioner, the lion. Andrew Price,
who is sojoiurning at Watclh Ili;l, R.
I., for the Ienefit of his health.
Senator Price received that day a
telegiaro annouaciug that his distin
gi.ished brother was stricken with
paralysis, ansd was in a critical coidi
tion. This intelligence naturally
proved a severe shock to the Senator,
and he at once repairhed to New Or
leans where he would he in better
communication with Watch hlll, and
ready to leave at any mom.'nt, should
the exigency of the cas repquir it.
Later news which reached here was
more reassuring, and we are glad to
be able to state that at the present
writing Mr. Price is doing as well as
can be expected under the circum
stances of his ease.
Ils many fliendls here are deeply
concern' d, and hlojw alid p, av thlat
hI, may so)on he out of all danlger and
on the high road to the full recm.ery

The Death Penalty.
A little thilg sometimes results in
death. Thus a mere scrateh, isignifi.
cant cuts or puny boils have paid the
death penalty. It is wise to have

It's the best Salve on eaith and will

of sending Donalds.uville patients to
