'SSUED EVERY SATURDAY DY HOMER MOUTON. ,- - Paoraxwroa. OFFICIAL JOURNAL OF THIS PARISH. Batered at the Lafayette La. Post-Ofice as Second Class Matter. SATrRDAY, SEPTEMBER II, 1897. The white Republicans who are displeased at Demas' appointment are unreasonable and unfair. Isn't Demas a good Republican? An advertisement reads: "Ex President Cleveland drinks Bowden Lithia Water." It would be inter esting to know the quantity. The statement of the Republican papers that "Gov. Foster is in favor of the central committee selecting the delegates" is the first Republi can lie of the campaign. Stephens and Munro have settled their controversy. Munro has probably learned that ' when speak ing about gentlemen it is better to tell the truth. Gov. Leedy, of Kansas, may be a Populist, but there is nothing fan tastical in his opinion that if a young man wishes to take his best girl out riding an "old fashioned buggy and a gentle horse" is infinite ly better than a tandem bicycle.

PUBLIC OPINION Reflected in the- Papers of this Great State. Henry Demas, the notorious ne gro politician and all-around scoun drel, who was literally chased out of St. John parish something over a year ago by the white people, has been appointed to* the. responsible and highly lucrative position of Naval Officer at New Orleans, which pays $5000o per annum. As Wim berly and Demas are veritable Siamese twins, politically, thinking men are inclined to regard the ap pointment of the sable African as an indicatron that Wimberly will win his fight for Collector of the Port.-West Baton Rouge Sugar Planter, Dem. The prize-fight in New Orleans a few nights ago between Eve rhart and McPartland, two plug-uglies who are not unknown to fistiana, gives rise to the question: What has become of the law against prize fighting? Has it fallen into inno cuous desuetude? It is said that sheriffs, judges, district attorneys and other peace officers were pres ent and witnessed the brutal mill. Will some ...

Don't Like the Idea of Being Locked Up in a Coach. The following protest is signed by a number of gentlemen who are very angry because they were made to comply with the quarantine reg utlations of this town. The Gazette 'believes that the gentlemen are un justly .severe upon the ofiicials of Lafayette. It is unquestionably true that during their detention they were not afforded the same privileges accorded quarantined persons in places where the author Ities have the means to provide a well-equipped camp. The signers of this protest, as well as all other traveling men, -are aware of the fact that this and all adjacent towns have established strict :quarantine and it is the height of folly for them to persist in traveling from one place to the other for the purpose of doing business. Though rather hard o...

To the great satisfaction of a large majority of the people of this town, the City Council held a meet ing Wednesday and adopted a reso Stution prohibiting the stopping of trains in the corporate limits of Lafayette. Dr. A. R. Trahan, health officer of the parish, adopted the same measures and for a time at least no train will be allowed to stop at any point in the town or parish of Lafayette. In the opinion of many of our citizens. this action should have been taken by the authoritles some days ago, but the gentlemen in whose hands have been entrusted the lives of this community, were evidently of a different opinion. The news that Texas had quaran tnred against Louisiana brought matters to a crisis. The action of the heal...
