PUBLIC OPINION Reflected In the Papers of this Great State. :'1iat is the sort of a fighter Don Caffery is. He does not belong to that':feeble breed of fighters who are ready to whip the enemy by lay ing down their arms) who, on the eve of a pitched battle with the enemy, exclaim, "They are going to takke our position any way and we mnght as well let them have it." Senator Caffery is no political her maphrodite. He does not believe in whipping the enemy by laying down 4s'" ahms and letting the foe fall into the trap he has set for himself. -Daily States. On Wednesday last President McKitiley sent a special message to Congress calling attention to the suffering and destitution -resulting tiom the overflows in Mississippi, Arkansas and other States, and recommending a liberal alppropria tion for the relief of the victims.

SUGAR REFINERY Will Contiaue to Runa-verything to be Put in Thorough Condition. Messra. Gumbel & Co., the New Owners, are a Progressive and Reliable Firm. The refinery, which was built through the energy of Col. Gus. A. Breaux, is being put in thorough condition for the next season. As the readers of The Gazette already know the plant is owned by S. Gum bet & Co., one of the best known and most 'reliable business firms in the South. Messrs.

NARRO W-AfNDED PEOPLE. Some people, whose mental vision is very limited, are seemingly dis pleased because this paper has sold a portion of its space to a New Iberia firm, and their displeasure has reached such alarming propor tions that they even threaten to withdraw the support which they may have accorded us in the past. For the information of those who have taken such an unreasonable view of this matter, The Gazette will state that its advertising space is for sale to anyone engaged in a legitimate business, and it matters not if the advertiser should live in Lafayette, New Iberia or anywhere else. This paper does business on the principle practiced by intelli gent persons in other branches of trade. If there is a merchant in Lafa yette who is so narrow-minded that he will refuse to sell goo...

Reflected in the Papers of this Great State. Just in proportion to the indigna tip and chagrin expressed by the free' il~er End free trade organs over the votes of Congressmen Broussard, Maeyer and Davey in favor of the Dingtey tariff bill, will those inter ested in the prosperity and well being.of Louisiana and her people indorse and commend the patriotic action. In this particular instance thie three Democratic members of the: lower house have rendered a servio to their constituents which the great body of the latter, with out distinction of party lines, will remember and commend long after Senator Caffery's high-sounding phrases about party fealty and de votion to abstract political prin cip.J diametrically opposed to the public weal have faded into merited oblivion. - Donaldsonville Chief, Rep. _ There can be no relief for the pebple, there is no-panacea for low prices in the Dingley bill.

TEACIHERS SHOULD BE PAID. According to a resolution of the parish School Board the public school teachers of this parish will be. required to attend the Summer Normal school, to be held in Lafa yette four weeks, beginning May 3x. It does not appear from the official proceedings whether the teachers are to be paid for the time devoted to attending the Normal, and the teachers at their last meeting or in stitute took the matter under con sideration. By resolution adopted, the Board was requested to meet in special session, to give opportunity for the teachers to present their claim for payment during the four weeks' attendance.

PUBLIC OPINION Refleeted in the Papers of this Great State. We were told in 1892 that the defeat of the lottery and S. D. McEnery were necessary in order to put down ring rule and to pu rify politics in Louisiana. The lot tery was driven out and McEnery was defeated, and still we hear the charge cont;naally made that our State government is corrupt. We didn't believe all that was charged in x89a, neither do we believe all of the accusations of to-day. Ring rule, fraud and corruption seem to be an effective weapon with which to assault the party and faction in power.-Catahoula News, Dem. The Janvier crowd of citizens in New Orleans are noted for their in termeddling propensities, and they are at present endeavoring to run the Orleans levee board. The board has succeeded in squelching them, but they will pop out in some other place soon. It's a little strange that the august Janvier has not forwarded orders to McKinley relative to Federal appointments in the flood threatened metropoli...

The Gazette's gay chanticleer ap pears this morning under very auspi cious circumstances. The recent victory of the Democratic party has stirred this feathery songster and he begs to offer his earnest congratulations to the unterrified Democracy of the town. It has not been the custom of The Gazette to call upon this faithful bird to cele brate victories of a local character, but last Monday's election proved such a manificent victory that the jollification would have been an in complete and a tame affair without his elegant form and lusty voice.

THE GAZETTE. ISSUED EVERY SATURDAY BY HOMER MOUTON. - - PaoPraiTon. OFFICIW. JOURnAL- TlIS PARISI. Batered at the Lafayette La. Past-Olce as Second Class Matter. SATURDAY, MAY 8, 1897. A SIGNAL VICTORY. The Democratic party of the town of Lafayette has won a signal victory over the allied forces of Republicanism, backed by Demo crats who are oftener found in the enemy's camp than in the ranks of the party of which they profess to be members. The municipal ticket, nominated by Democratic primaries, ordered and held in the regular way, was elected by a handsome majority, defeating the so-called People's ticket by a vote which leaves no doubt as to the temper of the voters of the town. The election of the ticket headed by Hon. Chas. D. Caffery, is not only a significant victory for the Democratic party, but it gives assurance of an intelligent and honest administration of the town's affairs for the next two years. The Democrats had very wisely selected only trustworthy citizens and rel...

.. . PUBLIC OPINION Reflected in the Papers of this Great State. Whatever might be said against Senator McEnery for advocating protection, he has never yet de serted the Democratic party as did the senior Senator in the last cam paign. It was well known that the election of McKinley and his con trol of Congress meant the speedy enactment of high tariff la-vs, and yet Mr. Caffery did all in his power to make that result possible, while Senator McEnery took the stump in support of the candidate and plat form of his patty. Those who wish to forgive and forget this break of allegiance on the part of Mr. Caf frey, because forsooth, he is now against the tariff measure of the party he assisted in electing, can do so, but as between the two senators 'we will have a greater admiration for S. D. McEnery. - Catahoula News, Dem. Some gushing admirer or toady of McKinley speaks for his '"iron will." That is the height of irony. -Daily States, Dem. Senator McEnery stated to a sub committee of th...

THE CONTEST riled by the Defeated Candidates A Number of Charges Made. The lawyers representing the People's ticket have filed a contest. It is a long-winded tale of innumer able woes, which, put all together and analyzed, make but a very mild kick. It is a rehash of all that has been said with the dreadful Syrians -eft out. The petition is signed by Messrs. Gus. A. Breaux, Wm. Campbell and R. W. Elliott as at torneys. The petitioners are the defeated candidates and the follow ing gentlemen: Jno. Vigneaux, Phil Crouchet, C. A. Cochrane, Arthur Couret, J. A. Delhomme, Alphose Peck, Jno. J. Marsh, H. H. Hohorst, Alb. Delahoussaye, H. D. Delahoussaye.

-- OPtl&4OOP4N ION Reflected in the Papers of this Great State. While the bill as reported to the 'Senate is not what the Louisiana planters expected, it is much better than the. Wilson bi.1, and we be iirit a T ` lwl i re a fpir rate of proteetion, still it fs not a .law and the House maj yet demand a com promise which would no doubt re sult in good for the sugar industry. We believe, all things considered, that it would be unwise to antago "ize the Senate measure, unless something should develop later. We all know that the vote in the Senate is very close, and the Demo crats are already exerting them selves to defeat the bill when it comes to a vote, consequently it would be much better to accept a -compromise than to have the new tariff law defeated altogether. - Franklin Vindicator, Rep.

The parish jail is now in excel lent condition. The repairs re cently made to it by Mr. J. Har mon, the capable representative of the Pauly Jail Building and Manu facturing Company, are completed and have been accepted by Mr. Wm.

It is a neat and strong structure, and with proper care it should give entire satisfac tion. A system oft desiccating and evaporating the offal of the prison has been put in and it is thought will prove to be a very successful mode of disposing of the refuse. Heretofore this has been a constant source of worry to the authorities. The jailer's apartments are airy and roomy, and that officer can have no complaint on that score. An elegant bathing-ro...
