"C optn N. ...... S3t6reed in the Papers of this Great State. Many of the country papers are drawing comparison between the Senators from .1ISatite. Senator Caflery is cited as an examle for the Louisiana Democracy to follow because he voted against the tariff bil. We are far from indorsing Senator McEnery's vote on that bill, but we greatly prefer McEnery to Caffery when the general interests of the State are concerned.-Mans field Journal, Dem. Congressman .Stephens, of Texas, has In troduced a rather interesting bill in the House. It is a joint resolution providing for an amendment to the constitution, by a vote of the several States, which will em .power said States to levy an inheritance and income tax, whose cash value shall exceed $So,ooo. This bill is one of considerable interest, and will unquestionably attract the attention of the country when it properly gets before the House. Mr. Stephers, by the way, is one of- that class of bright men who has come from the South, and is...

A remarable spectacle is to be preserted tot4he -American people in this city at the Urand Opera House to-night. That spec • taclc is the rejoicing, the exultation of the rank and file of a great political party over the defeat of its chief principle and mea sure by- its opponents; the glorification of a man over principle; the triumph of a State, boldly brasened, in a game of spoliation and robbery. Into this rottenness has the fruit of the tree of liberty ripened. Does it portend the greatness, the honor and moral height of a sovereign State? Or is it the srsf degradation and the decline of the party of the Constitution? Have we reached a depth of the degradation wherein the cuckold triumphs and rejoices in his shame an...

SATUr DAY, AUGUST 7, 1897 Emma Beaubian walked from St. Louis to :New York to meet her lover in order that they might get married. That is love. , A Republican contemporary says that the advance agent of pros perity has reported. We are tempted to ask where in the devil has he registered. The refusal Of Senator McEnery to be interviewed by a States re porter and his willingness to be in terviewed by a representative of O'Malley's Item will hardly add to his popularity among the Demo crats of Louisiana. It is with a sigh of relief that Democrats throughout the country will learn that the New York Sun has gone over to the Republicans. The Sun has been in the service of the money power all its life and it had no right to call itself a Demo cratic paper. Col. Fred Grant has resigned as a member of the New York police commission because he would not acquiesce in certain questionable methods employed to obtain evi den~e--gainst women of evil ways. Col.

S- nay1v, AucusTr 14, 1897. R A. OR- . 1ArRRY ,AD PROTECTION. Senator McEnery in his speech to the Choctaw Democratic Club attempted to justify his support of the Dingley bill by asserting that protection to American industries was a recognized system of the Democratic party which had re ceived the sanction and approba tion of such eminent Democrats as Jefferson, Jackson and Calhoun. Referring to Jackson he . says he thus gave emphasis to his views in his second annual message: ,"The power to impose duties on imports originally belonged to the several States. The right to adjust those duties with a view to the en couragement of domestic branches of industry is so completely identi cal with that power that it is diffi cult to suppose the existence of one without the other. They have dele gated their whole authority over im ports to the general government, without limitation or restriction saving the very inconsiderable re servation relative to their inspec tion laws. This authority ...

-feetedk In the Papers of this Great State. The discussion of the convention hBitherto indulged in by the press of V4e State has been chiefly along ,i es general rather than special, and while much has been said and many opinions have been expressed there have been but few suggestions o"fered looking to crystalizing the public sentiment along particular lines of legislation. The suffrage question will by common .consent be the dominant issue both before the convention and in the campaign ,Which precedes it, and as is usual .here such questions are involved there will be many differences of opinion as to the best method to be adopted in dealing with this trouble some issue. Mr. Farrar of New Orleans struck the keynote of the issue when he declared it should be the object of the convention to adopt a plan by which as many negroes as possible should be dis franchised while the privilege of the franchise should be extended to as many white men as possible.

THE LAFAYETTE GAZETTE. OFFICIAL JOURNAL OF THE PARISH AND TOWN OF LAPAYETTE. VOL. V. LAFAYETTE, LA., SATURDAY, AUGUST 28, 1897. NO. 26. CLEVER WORK By Slerliff Broussard, Rees and Hiebert Results in the Capture of Saloom's Murderer. The man, or one of the men, be lieved to be responsible for the foul murder of the Syrian peddler, John Saloom, is, in the St. Martin jail. His capture was the result of some very clever work by Sheriff Brous zard ably assisted by Sheriffs Rees of St. Martin and Hebert of Vermil ior.. Saloom was found dead on a public road not far fromn Duchamp's station, in St. Martin parish, about two weeks ago, with a bullet-hole through his head. The motive for the crime was evidently robbery. Being asked by the friends and relatives of the murdered man to help ferret out the crime, Sheriff Broussard went to ,St. Martin and joined Sheriff Rees and both officers immediately set to work on the case, which, at first, seemed envel oped in mystery. There was ap parently n...

ISSUED EVERY SATURDAY BY HOMER MtOUTON, - Paotaurroa. OFFICIAL JOURIAL OF THIS PARISH. D-tered at the Lafayette La. Poast-OSce as Second Class Matter. SAtURDAY, AUGUST 28, z897. It strikes us as particularly strange that Democratic papers should be opposed to the organization of a Democratic press club. The Gazette is informed that there is a movement among the reform editors in this State to hold a con vention for the purpose of canoniz ing Dominick O'Malley of the Item. It is proposed to dub him Saint Dominick. It is not yet positively known, but it is generally believed that our friend Bob Bienvenu will officiate at the canonization. O'Malley may not have labored abundantly, but he has undoubted ly suffered much on account of his zeal. It seems fashionable among a cer tain class of newspapers and politi cians to ridicule the idea of negro supremacy which they are pleased'to call a "spook." The Gazette agrees with its'able contemporary, the Baton Rouge Advocate, that so long as th...

` M ABileC OPINIOON ReAeeted in the Papers of this Great State. Even under our present election laws, which we admit, are not what they should be, it cannot be said t'hat Louisiana has inferior or cor tupt officers or public service of very low grade, while it is well known that our educational system is among the worst. The politician looks upon the people as a machine which he desires to keep in such repair that by his skillful manipula tion, will turn out resulth. to his liking, and for that reason the suf suffrage question will come first among politicians. But, would not a system providing for the general education, gradually raising the standard of intelligence, do more to better our political condition than any suffrage law or provision. .The standard of a state is not meas ured by its election machinery, but by the worth of the individual citizen.-Catahoula News, Dem.
