Aucoin, President of the board of health of this parish, reeieved a letter from Coroner Ayo informing him that Mr. Jules Godchatix had violated the quarantine regulations aud had sui-^ reptitiousiy cnteied t tie parish at Racelaud, without the knowledge ot the guards, and was at that time at bis home ou Racelaud plantation. Dr. Ayo further requested that the health autboiities from this place should take the matter tu hand and deal with Mr. Godchaux. The news cieated much suppressed excitement and gieat iodiguatiou at the fact that oue of the police jurors, who are supposed to be the guardians of the public health m this trying juncture, should set the bad example ot violating one of the ordinances adopted by the juty to S&feguaid the palish. To make the matter worse, u seems that Mr. God chaax had le egrapliedsometime be;oi e to iuquire if he could enter the paiish, and had received answer by telegram tha't he could not, unless he sojourned ten days in some not them or western nou-iufected place auu came directly from such place witu proper health certificates. This shows an utter oou tempt on the part of Mr. Godchaux, not only for law itself, but for the members ot his own body who consti tute the board of health, aud demon strates his unwortliiness to be ou the police jury of an euligbteued parish. Dr. Ayo should uot have lost time to correspond with the authorities here, but should have at once used all the power of the law iu eulorciug the quarantiue regulations aguiust Mr. Godehaux, without fear or favor. At it is, the authorities hero com manded the corouer to at ouce have Mr. Godchaux attested und isolated until further orders, and later in the day the whole hoard iu session gave peremptory orders that he be arrested and sent back ou tiie first train going to New Orleau*, w Itich, we are iufoi til ed, was done. So far, so good, but as soou as may be, tiie delinquent member of the police jury should be prosecuted and made 1 .1 feel the penalty of the law, if he will not respect its majesty. There is no apparent excuse for Ilia reprehensible conduct. He cannot plead the baby act, for he must know better, and if lie did not have sufficient gumption t<> know better, he had been told better, upon his own inquiry. How's This ?

Knohlnch, who has had some expel ience with yellow fever, having gone ilnongh two epidemics, and nursed the sick in 1878. W autof room coustraius us to crowd out a portionof liis paper, which will appeal in our next issue. These hints, criticisms and sugges tiona are to be considered iu connec tion with the original treatment, as published, and as such may serve a useful purpose iu treatiug aud nursing the fever. It is advisable, however, when practicable to call in a physician at the inception of the fever, and be guided by him. as complications may arise w hich would puzzle a layman. The Cherot treatment and the hints and suggestions, cchM be used in ease of emergency when it is difficult to secure promptly the services of a physician- It is well to lead them and familiarize one's seif witii them, so as to be piepared to use them at one moment's notice, should the occa sion to do so arise. Census Or School Children.— In its report the grand jury having re ferred to the imperfect census of the school children of the patmh, be tween tiie ages of 6 and 18 y»at>, we looked into the matter,and out inves tigation shows quite an increase in the census made f.n the present ve.-tt by ttssessor Delauue over the census for the year 1896. The returns for the year 1896 are : White children, Boy 8 2435 Girls 2365 Total 4*00 Colored children. Bovs 822 Gills 950 Total 1772 al, white and colored 65' lie retains foi 1897 just liaud n by Mr. Delauue are: White children. Boys 3420 Gills 3070 Total 6490 Colored children, Boys S93 Girls 1094 Total 1987 Total, white and colored Increase over 1896, 8457 1885 Notwithstanding the stienuous op position and protest of all the belter elements of the Republican party in this state, President McKinley has appointed Henry Demas, oue of tiie most corrupt and obuoxious negio politicians in the country, to the pto mlnent and lucrative position of Naval Officer for the poit of New Orleans. Whatever may have been the considerations that induced the prt-si detit to make this unfortunate relec tion—and The Chief is not only will • ing but anxious to condone w hat mav • seciu to he mistakes or the part of the I present chief executive —the fact is [incontrovertible that this nomination is a heavier blow to Republican in terests and prospects in Louisiana tliau any Democratic agency is capa ble of administering. A large pro portion of the most reputable and intelligent white people of this state have indorsed the principles and poll cy of the Republican part? and an desirous of contributing a share to their enforcement, but it is unreason able to expect citizens of this calibre to recognize or tolerate such political leadership as is sought to be thrust upon them by the elevation of Henry Demas to one of the highest federal offices within the gift of the adminis tration.— Donaldsouville Chief. The Chief reflects the sentiment of the better class of white republicans in the State on the snoject nfihi* obnoxious appointment. It is no doubt a bitter d««se for ourfiiends to swallow, but it is just what they had to expect when they enrolled them selves under the Republican hannei. The republican doctrine recognizes the equality of the negro, and a re publican President simply follows tin tenets of his party when he puts ne groes into office.

Judge ot I the Eighteenth Judicial Dist. Court Parish of Lafourche. Your Grand Jury impaneled on the 6lh day of September 1897, Leg leave to hand in their followiug findings and this our final repoit. We have found 24 prisoners in jail, and have iudicted one for murder, the others the District Attorney informed us he has filed iufoi orations. From our investigation and "inquiry ; we recconimeud to the Police Juiy the necessity of placing strong wire screens before the jail windows for the purpose of keeping dangerous j weapons and other matter that can he easily readied to the prisone't from the outside. We have also ex amined the sheriff's aud clerk's offic B and find in so far as the records aie concerned kept iu perfect order but : do advise that the necessary furniture j to equip tin ir offices should he fur-! nished, and time also the Sheriff's : house is hardly habitable for the lea- ! son that it leaks very much which is causing rot. and the paper to fall, aud consider it wise that the proper au thorities should give it their imme diate attention as it is public property aud is going to ruin, and later on repairs w ill he of no avail whatever We have been informed that these suggestions have been repeatedly made and no action taken in the mat ter. and trust that the Police Jury will heed these timely suggestions. We find the jail iu good condition, and the prisoners are well taken care of. We have examined into the par ish treasurer's report and find his re port to he correct, to wit: Report of School fund on hand...... ............................$161300 Report of General fuud, total for dis bursements.................$1316.17 Report of General fund total for dis buraeraeuts..................1993-43 Balance due Bank «?t Thibodaux.... .............................$668.26 The detailed report of which we here with attach to our report. We investigated the standing of onr public schools and received from the Pmi-h Superintendent ot Public edu tion (hat there are 50 schools in the pr.nsii with 65 or 66 teac! ers, and that it requires about $2300.00 a month to pay them ; that there are iu actual attendance children numbering 34 or 3500. Of these 1000 are colored and 2500 are white, that for the last three years they have kept open for 5 months only, owing to improper a mount of lauds. We find that fmm the State's d.stribution of school funds other parishes, smaller iu the popula tion of children than Lafourche, are receiving a greater portion than us. We investigated that matter and we find that the assessor of our paiish does tot make » thorough house to house canvass in taking the census of school children, aud attribute that t H-t as the cause of the small propor lion given us from the State School I "ini and should it be done properly ' - dd inean, we are informed by the Superintendent of Public Schools, Nobody Kicks at Racket Prices.

The ehrouic sensational monger, not to eall him by the harsher name of habitual liar, will soon be abroad in all his glory, and from now on you may expect to hear all sorts of exaggerated rumors about the yel low fever being here, there, and everywhere, where it is not and may never be. Indeed, one must not be surprised if they should have huu dead and burieu before lie ever had the fever, or ever dreamt of having it. You must give the aforesaid sensational monger full sway; it is only iu case of inpending daager that he has an unlimitted opportuni ty to display his genius for inven tion to its fullest proportions. Lis ' ten to him but diseount over aud over again every thing he says, until there is nothing of it left, and then vou might resell the truth. Don't gag him ; that may oaase his over heated iuiaginatieu to become clogg ed with a superabundance of exag gerated fancies, aud then-well some thing awful may take plaee. Let the poor fellow alone. A number ot Republican newspapers now admit that the Diugley tariff .*ill be inadequate as a reveuue producer, and it is impossible to escape this conclusion in view of the tact that each week shows a greater decrease in customs receipts than the piei edmg oue. To stop the deficiency these newspapers propose that the Dingley bill be taken up at the regular session of Congress and amended in many of its features. If this is done the whole tariff question will be opened again to the detriment ot the business lute rests of the country, and again, it ia not by any means improbable that if the bill were to be taken ud for ameudment that the duties which are now shutting out imports would be increased instead ot lowered. To amend the tariff bill however, and reduce the rate* would be tantamount to a confession oh the part of the republicans that it is an utter failure and rather than make such an ac knowledgment to the country they will allow it to gtand aud force the administration to issue bonds to cover the deficiency in the treasury.—States.
