The 22d was not celebrated in Opelou
sas by the public schools, nor otherwise,
and even had preparations been made
to do so the weather would not have
permitted it, as the rain fell nearly all
day. Next year the public school chil
dren should observe the day and be
taught to revere the memory of the im
mortal "Father of Iiis Country" and
the exalted patriotism and other noble
qualities which characterized him.
From and after March 1, the Southern

left at Cheneyville about 22 hours. It

j ways been to .serve the people, of our
j town, parish and State to the best of our
: p 001 ability.
j t 0 the staunch friends who hai
steadfastly encouraged and supported
us we return our most heartfelt thanks.
To those who have road our paper and
paid for it our grateful thanks are also
due. Those who have been reading our
paper and have not paid for it are as
suied that they will earn our sincere
thanks by promptly handing us Use
amounts they owe.
Those who have paid in advance for
the D emocrat will be sent the Courier
up to the time paid for, or, il they pre
fer, the amount due them will be re
funded on application. Our unfulfilled
advertising contracts will be completed
by the Courier (unless otherwise direct
ed by the parties in interest), thus giv
ing our advertisers the benefit of a
greatly increased ciiculation secured
by the addition of the names from our
We have said that our venture was
financially unprofitable from the start.
It may be proper to look into the causes
which led to this result. We went as
far as any other paper in assisting the
laudable efforts of the noble women of
the W. C. T. U., and in demanding at
all times the strict enforcement of the
laws; we alone in Opelousas discounte
nanced prize-fighting, cock-fighting,
&c , when these degrading sports were
indulged in here ; in fact, we were al
ways, as it was our duty as a public in
structor to be, on the side of law and
morality. The D emocrat was the first
paper to protest against a colored post
master, and it was the only one which
protested against the use by colored
people of the hall dedicated to social
gatherings of the best class of whites.
Although we were censmed in some
quarters for the stand we took on these
questions, the virtuous and intelligent
masses were surely in sympathy with
us, and we should have gained by our
course at least as much support as we
lost by it. The editor has always been
a friend of education and has for years,
in season and out of season, urged the
exteusiou and betterment of our school
facilities. lie persistently held up to
the people's gaze the disgracef ul condi
tion of the public cemetery and pleaded
with them to put a stop to it until he
was almost ashamed to recur to the sub
ject. Hence, if the opportunities of the
youth of the parish for acquiring knowl
edge are improved ; if we have a school
building which is a credit to our town;
and if the public cemetery, from a neg
lected thicket where the beasts of the
field roamed at will, has been trans
formed into a bower of beauty, he might
rightfully claim a small share of credit
for these achievements. It our town
affairs are in good shape, our finances in
a healthy condition, our streets and
bridges improved ; if a higher sense of
moral responsibility and a worthier and
more patriotic conception of their du
ties prevail among our town officials ; if,
in fact, our dear old town has been
steadily on the up grade for several
years, one of the most potent causes
which brought about these results may
be directly traced to the elimination
from the municipal government of a
class of people who were—to some ex
tent unwittingly, perhaps—mere tools
iu the hands of designing men. Of our
connection with this great, reform it is
unnecessary for us to speak here. Be
sides this, and other matters we might
mention, we have given our readers all
the important local news, carefully es
chewing the sensational, the vulgar and
the obscene, and we have given more
general news than any other paper in
the parish or perhaps any country paper
in the State. Surely, the causes of our
inadequate support do not lie here.
But, a few mouths before we took
charge of the D emocrat another paper

journalism or in sympathy with the dig
nity or good repute of that high call
ing, or dependent upon it for the meaus
of livelihood, but by a small coterie of
politicians whose ill will we had been so
unfortunate as to incur. They formed
a joint stock company, and with con
summate skill enlisted the active assist
ance and support of a few leading men
iu the various sections of the parish by
inducing them to take stock in the en
terprise, thus at one and the same time
reducing their own financial responsi
bility to a minimum and creatiug as
many active and pecuniarily interested
agents. The effects of this clever scheme
were at once apparent. Three-fourths,
or thereabouts, of the best paying work
went at once to the new concern. Then
its managers went to the police jury,
the town council and tho school board
and offered to do tho town, the parish
and the school board printing gratis
Of course their offer was accepted, and
another considerable source of revenue
—one always an important factor in the
life of a country newspaper—was cut
off from us. We prefer to believe that
herein lies the true cause of our insuffi
cient support.
Notwithstanding the adverse circum
stances which environed us and the tre
mendous odds against which we had to
do battle, we struggled on with a cour
age and determination which, if it did
not win the respect of all our opponents,
at least challenged tho admiration of
our friends. A few of these friends
have been thinking for some time of
forming a stock company similar to the
one above referred to and thus placing
us and the Courier ou au equal footing
with that concern. We arc pleased to
announce that the project has been al
most consummated, and the new com

we have steadfastly refused to further

to the waste basket many advertise

of our exchanges and for some of which

Accused of a Contempt of Court.
Five membeis of the Opelousas bar
were ruled into court this week to show
cause why they should not be adjudged
guilty of a contempt of court, in declin
ing to defend a colored man, Jesse Ty
ler, as requested by the court.
They filed a long answer, in which
they swore they meant no contempt, but
that circumstances, addressed to their
professional pride and self protection,
constrained them to decline serving the
accused. They were represented by
Judge E. North Cullom, who argued the
case and interpreted and construed the
statutes on the subject of contempt
elaborately. Tho accused attorneys
were prosecuted by the District Attor
ney, E. B. Dubuisson.
Considerable interest is felt, and the
numerous friends of tho attorneys are
in full sympathy with them. We re
frain from stating particulars. It suf
fices for us to add that the lawyers be
lieve they have serious reasons for their
course, which by no means imply disres
pect for the authority of the court. We
may venture to hope that the proceed
ings in this case may have the cffect of
discontinuing a practice which they hon
estly believe, in common with the other
lawyers, is unprofessional and dam
aging to them.
On the 19th inst. President Cleveland
On the 19th inst. President Cleveland
appointed Senator White, of Louisiana,
as an associate justice of the Supreme
Court, and the Senate promptly confirm
ed him the same day. Mr. White is a
Democrat and a lawyer of great ability
and is emiuently qualified for the posi
tion. Although the Supreme Court dis
trict of which Louisiana forms a part
has been without a representative on
the supreme bench since the death of
Justice Lamar, of Misssissippi, Mr.
Cleveland never thought of going out
side of New York for a new justice un
til the Senate had rejected two of his
mugwump friends. Then only did it
occur to him that he might do an act of
tardy justice to the large Southern dis
trict of which the State forms a part by
appointing one of its residents. The
Governor will soon appoint Mr. White's
successor, who will act until tho Legis
lature elects some one to fill his unex
pired term, which ends in March, 1897.
The Legislature, when it meets in May,
will therefore have two Senators to
elect, the other being to fill the unexpir
ed term of Mr. Gibson, which ends in
March, 1895, and which is temporarily
filled by Mr. Caffery, by appointment of
the Governor. Among those mentioned
as likely to be appointed very soon by the
Governor to succeed Mr. White are
Messrs. N. C. Blanchard, of Caddo, F.
P. Stubbs, of Ouachita, and Collector
Wilkinson, E. Howard McCaleb aud E.
B. Krattschuitt, of New Orleans.
The Weather.
We have had frightful weather during
the la st ten days. The. nlanters
rest ed iu their
pitcimitfir cropST
much saturated by water to admit l of
plowing. Everything is at a stand-still.
The roads are terrific, and it has be
come almost impossible to travel on
them in many places. This must con
tinue for weeks, even with fair weather.
One of the consequences is, no produce
is brought to town, and the merchants
are idle. We hear of no unusual sick
ness, but it may be expected later un
less people are more circumspect than
they usually have been.
Ladies' fine shoes, elegant dress goods,
men's wool hats, &c., bought at a sacri
fice, will be sold at ridiculously low pri
ces by L. Stuart Sandoz, at Veltin's old
stand. It will pay you well to call and
price these goods.
Remember that J. B. Sandoz keeps a
stock of coal and örewood constantly on
hand which he can furnish at a mo
ment's notice.

Sidewalks—Hew They Build Them in
Donaldsonvilie, La., is a live and pro
gressive town of about the sat le popu
tiou as Opelousas. Observing that a
systematic effoithad been in progress
there for some time to build good side
walks, we applied to our .-steemed
friend L. E. Bentley, tho editor of the
Chief, to furnish us with an < utliue of
the plan of operations that had been
adopted aud some data as to the mate
rials used, their cost, «fee. In reply he
kindly wrote us twice, his lirst commu
nication containing the following mem
orandum :
We paid $8 per M for red brick for
gutter walls ; from $11 to $12 for lake
brick for fact- of walk ; 75c. to $1 for
lime ; £2 to £2.15 for llosedale cement ;
$2 per day for man and cart to haul dirt
for filling; 18c. per square yard for
Iu a subsequent letter Mr. Bentley,
who is one of the live aldermen of the
town and is entitled to muco of the
credit for the progress Douai lsonville
is making, wrote as follows :
The width of our walks, as I iclieve I
wrote you several days ago, is eight
feet. Where the conformation requires
greater width to reach "the property
line " the owners of the lots are required
to defray the cost of the exti 1 width.
Instead of calling upon the property
holders to defray a share of tho cost of
the regulation sized walks fron- ing their
property respectively, as was originally
contemplated by the town on inances,
we increased the municipal ta from 6
to 10 mills aud devote the au gmented
revenues to sidewalks and oilier im
provements, constructing fron 8 to 12
blocks of walk yearly. We 11 nv have
38 blacks paved in this manner t nd pro
pose to continue the work until the eu
tire town is covered. Besides t Iiis we
have put in a waterworks plan costing
$14,000, which will be paid for 1 is year,
and in 1893 we gave $1500 tow irds the
construction of revetments an 1 levees
on the town front.
Mr. Bentley also obtained from May
or Goette a memorandum whic i he sent
us, from which we glean the fact that a
liue of walk recently complete 1 cover
ing eight blocks, or a distanci of 2659
feet, cost, including 20 cross bridges,the
sum of $2844, or $355.50 per bio k.
Now, we respectfully subn it these
facts and figures to the intelligent and
progressive people of Opelou .as, and
would ask them if it is not h gh time
that we were moving along tin se lines.
We will never have a decent s; stem of
sidewalks until we go about it in a sys
tematic manner, and wecannc expect
to have them w ithout consider; ble cost.
An election for councilmeu wil be held
in April', and every candidate -, oted for
by our progressive citizens should be
required to pledge himself to assist in
inaugurating a systematic plan >y which
we will secure good sidewalks.
A Civilian 011 the Supreme ~3eiicli.
The appointment of Senator E. d.
White is universally comment ed. His
worth is recognized, and the advantage
of at last having a civilian versed in the
civil law, as a system, placed 0:1 tho Su
preme Court of tho United States can
not be questioned.
We believe it is the very first appoint
ment to that exalted office that lias ever
been tilled by a resident of Louisiana.
Her system of laws is peculiar, and re
plete with profound learning. It, to a
peculiar extent, has its sourct iu con
science, its sanction in society, and is a
guaranty of liberty dictated by the re
alities of business and inspired by natu
ral equity. Its principles sprang into
existence at the moment men began to
live together and will continue to exist
while society endures.
