S DUUBLIC OPINION Reflected in the Papers of this Great State. The villainous and partially successful method employed by the Trust, as deep laid and deceptive as it is, has been dis covered and is being exposed by friends of the sugar industry, whose eyes have been op- th Trust' ever sil ce Congress convened. - The 1ingley bill, as altered by the Senate Committee, will not only not protect our home sugar industry, but by granting special favors to the greatest enemy of the industry, the Trust, it threatens the gradual destruction of the American sugar industry. -Iouma Courier, Dem. Dixon, the hullabolooist of New YVirk City, has taken to braying again. This time he announces from the pulpit that "men have renounced religion; the ministry is in its decadence." He added that in that city only $35,ooo men go into Protestant c'hurches. He may be right, but if he is it is because there are too many Dixons in the pulpit preaching politics - preaching any thing but the old faith of the f...

Read, of Calcasieu, to whom the contested election case was transferred by Judge Debaillon, who recused himself, presided over the District Court Thursday. The case was fixed for trial for June 23.

The editor who will steal.another man's editorial is not a fit person to accuse people of dishonesty. It is mid that Mrs. Cleveland wgs , total abstainer during her stay in the white-house. Now that this is known, no one but a fool will blame Grover for going fishing .so often. The Gazette congratulates its friend, John J.

The City Council of Ruston is legislating against blind-tigers. Blind-tigers are a sure product of prohibition and the only way to destroy them is to abolish the law restrictilng the sale of liquor.

U PIBLIC OPIINION Reflected in the Papers of this Great State. Although William Jennings Bryan failed in his election as President of the United States, he still re tains his position as executive offi cer of a great commercial organiza tion, which is second only in im portance to the National Congress. This is the Trans-Mississippi Com mercial Congress, which -will hold its ninth annual session in Salt Lake City, Utah, July 14, of this year. It will be a notable gathering of Western statesmen and will com prise governors and ex-governors, present members and ex-members of the National Congress, and the most prominent and influential men of the trans-missisFippian territory to the number of one thousand, ex clusive of the ladies who are ex pected to accompany them. -Crow 'ley Signal, Ind.

Ready Cash Is the Lever Which Moves the World. .ere.s iresting lItor Last month the Ely-Walker Dry Goods Co., of St. Louis, Mo., one of the largest dry goods jobbers in the West, were badly damaged by fire. The Insurance Companies took possession of the entire stock (amounting to about $1,000,000 worth). Great quantities of these goods were damaged. Vast quantities were not injured one particle. But the entire stock was placed on sale May 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. Not a day could this gigantic sale be delayed; and the firm with the ready cash dictated their own terms. Our Mr. S. P.

THE LAFAYETTE GAZETTE. OFFICIAL JOURNAL OF THE PARISH AND TOWN OF LAFAYETTE. VOL. V. LAFAYETTE, LA., SATURDAY, JUNE 5, 1897. NO. 14. OUR VISITORS. The men and women who pursue the noble occupation of making good and worthy citizens of our boys and girls are with us since Monday. They are not here for pleasure or for fun. They are here to learn so that they may teach to others. This is their mission in Lafayette, and The Gazette is pleased to be able to state that they have begun to work under the most auspicious circumstances, for, from all appearances, much good will be accomplished by the normal which was opened in the High School building Monday morning. We all know that the public school teacher is not, as a rule, blessed with a ponderous bank ac count and that his chances to amass a fortune are paitnfully slim, and being aware of it as well as we are, we should be willing to accord the teacher his share of praise for the generosity and public-spirit which he displays in giving ...

DEATIIl OF JUDGE GATES. Judge Fred Gates died in New Iberia last week. The judge had many friends in this parish who were pained to hear of his death. Fred Gates was a plucky man and a loyal friend. As a citizen and a Democrat he rendered a great service to his rarish and district. He was pre-eminently the impla cable foe of negroism. He was just to the negro, but he was one of those who believed, that Sambo was not the proper person into whose hands the reins of govern ment should be placed. He led the movement which resulted in the establishment of white supre macy in Iberia parish. The odds were against him, but he fought to a finish and won the battle. It re quired a man of indomitable will and unflinching courage. He pos sessed both. He never gave up un til he had rid the district of cor...

PUBLIC SCHOOL 11O USES AND GROUNDS. The people of the various wards in this parish should form local as sociations for the purpose of im proving and beautifying the public school houses and grounds. The present unsightly buildings which are used as school-houses should be replaced by new and more commo dious structures. Where it is im possible to raise enough money to build anew improvements can be made that will add greatly to the appearance of the surroundings and to the comfort of teacher and pu pils. This is one thing which has been woefully neglected in this sec tion. There is absolutely no ex cuse for it. With a reasonable effort and the expenditure of a small sum, which the patrons of the school ought to cheerfully sub scribe, enough could be done to make a good beginning. The impress...

PUBLIC OPINION Redlected in the Papers of this Great Stsite. B There are now i8,ooo New York tailores on a strike, with hourly prospects of the number being in creased to 32,ooo. For this condi tion of affairs the Atlanta Constitu tion believes the cause may be ex plained in a very few words. Dur ing the late campaign, the New York tailors were given to under stand that as- soon as the Republi can party came into power times would materially improve and wages increase. On the strength of these pledges many of them were induced to vote the Republican ticket; but instead of realizing the hopes which they were led to en tertain before the election, they have since been required to do ad ditional work without extra com pensation. Unable to endure the situation longer and seeing no re lief ahead, they decided to strike, with the results which have just been noticed. Until the principles of sound Democracy are restored to the government there can be no relief from the burdens under which ...

THE LAFAYETTE GAZETTE. OFFICIAL JOURNAL OF THE PARISH AND TOWN OF LAFAYETTE. VOL. V. LAFAYETTE, LA., SATURDAY, JUNE 19, 1897. NO. 16. COMPETYITIVE EXAMINA TION OF TEA CIERS. According to a resolution of the parish School Board adopted last fall, the public school teachers of this parish must undergo every year a competitive examination for their respective positions in all instances where two or more applications are filed for the same school. The resolution in question is based upon Sec. 74 of the school laws providing that "whenever two or more teachers apply for the same posi tion or positions a competitive ex amination shall be held, and the position or positions shall be given to the most competent." In a most eloquent and able address at Falk's hall, last Thursday evening, Prof. R. L. Himes, State institute conductor, took occasion to touch upon this point in answer to a query. The distinguished professor pro ceeded to show the manifest injus tice and absurdity of subjecting f...

DEA T OF ARCHBISHOP JANSSENS. The people of Lafayette, particu larly the Catholics, were shocked last Sunday morning to hear that Archbishop Janssens had died at sew on board the steamer Creole, while on his way to Holland where he was going to visit his native town. The beloved churchman had, by reason of his splendid qualities, at tained a most enviable place in the affections of the people of this State. His uniformly kind manner had won for him the love of all he came in contact with, and the mag nificent administrative ability in the management of the affairs of his diocese challenged the admiration of everyone. The zeal that the de ceased churchman alway s displayed in the performance of his important duties as the head of the New Or leans diocese, the manner in which he adjusted the seri...

How can the good white citizens organize independent of party lines, for the purpose of giving to Louis iana white supremacy? It would be a good plan to organize in all parishes, as they did in New Or leans. If the good aitizens do not get together in opposition to this constitutional convention we may as well not vote on election day for the bosses say "we must have the convention if the ballot-box has to be stuffed." We can organize and rid ourselves now, but after that convention we may not have the opportunity. A good body of rep resentative citizens could form a new constitution fa...

No more will we see sweet school marms promenading our streets with text and note books. They have done their work and gone home better prepared to teach the young idea how to shoot. The sedate male pedagogue has also bidden us good-bye. He is a nice, pleasant fellow and we hope he will come again. He too, has worked hard and next session he will be better equipped for the school-room.
