It has been frequently charged that the negro in not given justice in the courts of the South. In some sections this charge may, in a measure, be true; but last week’s record in our district court gives convincing proof that it is not correct in Union parish.

And we have heard no complaint urged as to the righteousness of those verdicts under the law and the evidence, either.

We believe the people generally throughout Louisiana have enough of the so-called railroad commission, and would like to see the thing blotted out of existence. But they wouldn’t rest utnil they got it, now they have to lump it. – Richland Beacon News.

There are at least a quarter dozen people in Louisiana who are pleased with the railroad commission; and they are the commissioners themselves. They draw good fat salaries, while the people foot the bills. The only material good the public gets out of it is the privilege of seeing a few men live easily from the public crib; and this would be all right if the taxpayers were not forced to pay the “fiddler” while the commissioners alone “did the dancing”. But then we suppose the people of Louisiana are expected to maintain a certain number of officials from the public crib; and they might as well be styled railroad commissioners as anything else. Shakespeare said there is nothing in a name, anyway.

You Know What you are Taking. When you take Grove’s Tasteless Chill Tonic because the formula is plainly printed on every bottle showing that it is simply Iron and Quinine in a tasteless form. No Cure, No Pay. 50¢.
