delegates composing the presont convention only 21 were of French descent and it is said that many of old the croolo families are represented by men who do not speak French The struggle of the French tonguo to maintain its ascendency in Louisiana since tho annexation in 1802 has been virile and prolonged That it has taken 00 years for tho language of the dominating Anglo Saxon race to drive out its ancient lingxial foe proves the strength of the latter Spanish and Gorman fam- ¬ ilies have been absorbed by the French and harsh Teutonic names have been changed into more musical Gallic syllables It is truo that there are still about 15000 French speaking men in Lou isiana uhd perhaps three times as many women and children but they live chiefly in the rural districts and they are rapidly learning English Often without doubt it is the sort of Bonavcnturo English Gables taught his pupils but at all events it is not French nor creolo patois A writer in the Sun commenting on the present lingual condition has this to say concerning the schooling of the descendants of the people from the Land of Evangeline A moro efficient system of public schools in the Acadian parishes would very soon get rid of it at least of tho Acadian patois The French will sur- ¬ vive in Ivouisiana half the popula- ¬ tion still speaking it but irot as an official language and it will in time

the mode of life the holidays Tho opera is always in French never in Italian The music is French even to tho tremolo and Wagner is abhorred The paintings are French the cuisine essentially French or Cre- ¬ ole The people themselves do net recognize the full extent of Gallic in ¬ fluence It is a remarkable instance of the triumph of French ideas tastes and customs at the same timethat the English language has been vic- ¬ torious over its Gallic adversary The strength of that language is evidenced in its success and the strong prejudice and patriotism of the Creoles and French Of all the

iiiii iwi iwpMwww collection of bound pamphlets the the French Tho Catholic church has been the most stalwart supporterof the French language in Louisiana and it has perhaps more than anything elso kept that language strong and virile Tho Creoles have always insisted on a French archbishop and their in- ¬ fluence in tho church was strong enough to win This became an im ¬ portant issue in the late clvaico of an urohhishop and the Fronch influence wasagaiu triumphantin the election of a fewmqnths ago of tho present occupant of tho archiopiscopal seo But even in the5 Catholic church French is losing ground In the sugar industry tho French or Creoles have lost much of their influoncc and most of tho largo plantations havq passed into tho hands of Americans or American companies They have lost ground in tho retail trade and in the professions in finance and in other branches they hold their own But the old sentimental tie which connects them with Franco is almost entirely gone and thero are no truer Americans anywhoro in tho country Thus is shown anoy tho absorbing and assimilating power of this rcpuh- iic aim ner motner tongue Superfluous property of an early collector which
