Minister Lataillade said:
Gentleman, I have asked you to
come here in order to furnish
you t:ie precise information on
the arrestation of Mr. Georges
Petit. Mrs. Petit has written to
the Asscoiation of Haitian Jour-
nalists which in its turn 'has sol-
licited information from the De--
partment of Interior.
It has been reported that, Mr.
Petit has been arrested without
a warrant. I am going to explain
the motive of his arrestation.
Three months ago, the newspap-
er Independancei published an
article which was injurious to
the person of the President of
the Republic. I summoned Mr.
Petit and told 'him this: 4You
can criticise all the acts of -the
Government. You have never
been molested, you will not be
molested as long as you stay in
the prescribed limits. But I can-
not tolerate that your newspap-
er publish articles which are in-
jurious to the person of the
President of the Republic.s
Mr Petit -promised me that
nis newspaper would abstain-
from criticizing the Chief of State
If you again attack the Pre-
sident of the Republic, I told
him at that -time, I will 'have you
*D'accordz (all right), Mr.
Thus a pact was established
But the newspaper cIndepen-
dance- directed by Mr. Petit
published in its Monday Octob-
er 15th edition an article com-
pletqly injurious to the person
of the Nation's Chief of State.
In no country of the world
would such an attitude towards
the Chief Executive be tolerat-
I showed the article to Presi-
dent Magloire who made no corn
ments. But I could see that the
President was extremely hurt by
the attitude of Mr Petit towards
According to my warning to
Mr. Petit, I ordered his arrest
for grave einjuresz to the per-
son of the Chief of State.
Mr. Petit 'had not kept his pro-
mise to refrain from attacking
the person of the. Chief of
When President Magloire was
informed of this arrest, I ex-
plained the reason." And the Pre-
sident said: I am asking you
to release Petit.*
On Thursday October 18th
I summoned Petit who agreed
with me that the note was tin-
jurieuse and that occupied
with his electoral activities he
had not closely controlled all
the articles of that edition. Be-
fore allowing Mr. Petit to leave,
I again warned him that if 'he

D'Ass owt-Man AndResquiliers Party Crashers
dI)'Assaut-Man" And uResquilieurs Party Crashers
Practically in every town of
this country there is an original
corps whose speciality consists
in assaulting (free admission)
nightclubs, reception and show
places, football games etc.
A d'assaut-man (the word is a
mixture of French" and English,
meaning the man who storms in
not by the entrance but by the
back door or over t~he walls) is
an caudacieux, who has no guil-
ty reaction in front of reproa-
ches or vexations. Unlike the
ftresquilleur with whom he has
some common traits, he often
has a few gourdes in his wallet,
but -he won't pay for admission.
Besides, he is a louis-jean, al-
ways ready to burst out, to de-
fend himself. *He will gladly
help another fellow to furnish
the table with enough rum-soda,
or prepare the way for other-
confreres to get in.
A (,d'assaut-man, is usually a
great dioleur.> (talker). 'He talks
loud and makes himself the cent-
er of attraction by his humoris-
tic stories which are mostly
,aneriesv (nonsense), but win 1
for him many friends and admi-
A d'assaut man does not use a
rope, or,a liana like Tarzan to
arrive surprisingly in a place.
He doesn't have -the benefit of
black magic to appear suddenly,
in a nightclub. But he can jump-
from a mango or coconut tree
into a stadium or over the walls
at a garden party with the great-
est of case.
The first thing he does is to
ask a friend for the stub of 'his
ticket. After inspecting the pla-
ce, he checks strategic points
where 'his confreres will probab-
ly land in their trapeze style
Police are accustomed to these
fellows and sometimes they have
a hard time to refrain them
from making such exploits.
The *resquilleurs;, are of ano-
ther grade, for they are the
most quiet and reserved persons
in the world. They hardly de-
fend themselves but rather al-
ways find a way to dissimulate
their shame (either by laughing
cri-jaune4 or by lying). They nev-
er have a penny in their pocket.
To enter into a place they
choose the right way that is the
entrance door. Usually they are
well dressed, but all is appear-
ance and bluff. In fact they are
deprivd of everything and have
to live as parasites on others.
They are well informed on the
social events to take place in the
Capital and they can easily ode-
nicher' a ball in the remotest
.'quartier. They will arrive a
few minutes before the appoint-
ed time. Just to check the tem-
perature of the feast. As soon
as they finish their inspection,
they post themselves at the
street-corner to smoke a few

for two minutes before shaving. The problem, someone com-
ments, is how to employ an active mind during this interval of
time. Indeed, what with putting on the soap and talking it off,
there must be full five minutes to fill.
This goes for seven days a week, save for those brief occa-
sions when, in defiance of his tribe, the patriarch allows the
stubble to grow. The annual total, on a rough calculation, is -
something like 30 hours. Give a man a shaving life of half a
century, and the awful fact emerges that he spends 62 days IN PETIONVILLE
or two calendar months, dawn, noon, twilight and the murk _____________ _
of night, staring at his soaped visage in a mirror. The econo-
mic waste is frightful. Consider, if you will, what you could PERENNITE DU BATIMENT
do with 62 days, or worse still with 37 working weeks of 40
Verse Banished !
What then? Manifestly one must establish limits. Houseman ;
in his lecture on poetry remarked that when shaving he was '
compelled, with some effort, to banish verse from his mind.
Some lines of poetry caused a distinct physical reaction, made
his beard bristle and reordered shaving an impossibility. On
that score I think I-am safe. Some lines of poetry give me a
tingle 'down the spine, but as I shaved my chin this morning,
I softly murmured: A rose-red city half as old as time, and
the razor ran smoothly on. I do think, however, that thoughts EiANCiEMENT ABSOLU

Therein lies the reason why I could not happily employ a _________
barber. Under the sharp, bare blade one feels bound and help-
less, the naked throat a soft temptation to one with a grudge
against society, a private ill to brood over, or a score to settle
with man-kind. Only once have I been scraped by alien hand.
Preoccupation, in fact, sent me absent-mindedly forth, and I
arrived rough-chinned in London's Strand. I took my forget-
tul face to a barber over against the Savoy for attention, and '
sitting lathered at the man's mercy bethought myself that it
was only just along the way that Mr. Sweeny Todd plied hgs
razor in Fleet Street and slit many an innocent jugular. 1There
was the barber of Paris, too, who despatched his customers
with one neat stroke. According to my authority, a neighbour-
ing home cookery shop in the Rue de la Harpe became fam-
ous for its savoury patties.>> And here was I in meat-hungry
Britain, with a razor hovering.
This leads me, however, from the problem of the fruitful
employment of shaving time. The monks, bless them, had a
solution. First they reduced the task to manageable proport-
ions. A convocation, I find, held at Aix in A.D. 817, decided
that French monks should shave fortnightly, while a British IRUCK OWNER
ruling for canons names 17 times a year. We read that the -

recently, than the story of the
now-extinct passenger pigeon of
The article which is of prime
importance to Haiti with its
dwindling bird colony and appro-
aching Winter Duck hunting sea-
son, explains that the passenger
pigeon was once so plentiful that
authorities believe it at one time
represented 35 per cent of all
the birds on the continent.
Certainly, the early settlers who
saw the sky dark with passing
flocks must have felt it would
be impossible to wipe them out.
But it was not.
Records and publications on file
at the Canadian Wildlife Service
tell the story. The first sug.
gestion of a decline appeared in
the Sixteen Seventies only half
a century after settlement of the
eastern seaboard began.
As late as 1.806 there is a re-
port of one passenger pigeon flock
in the United States that was es-
timated to stretch 240 miles long
and a mile wide. The number of
birds in it were estimated at
more than 2,230,272,000 or
three -per square yard.
The passenger pigeon ate about
a pint of food a day. So for that
one flock, food consumption ran
to some 17,424.000 bushels daily.
Nesting Grounds Axed
But the passenger pigeon was
good to eat and easy to shoot. It
lived largely on nuts and there-
fore required large stands of ma-
ture hardwood to produce crops
enough to feed it. As the forests
were cut down the birds were in-
creasinglv hunted, trapped, nett-
ed and otherwise taken for food
and sport. Their nesting grounds
also were destroyed as the forests
The main reason for the passen-
ger pigeon's eventual extinction,
in Ithe vieaj of many conservation-
ists, however, has been stated ter-
sely by a writer several years ago
in a New York State Conservation
'Man, trying to make an easy

So the passenger pigeon's numb-

died at 2 P.M, Aug. 29, 1914, in

called eMartha, was reported
to be 29 years old.
'During Martha's lifetime, a
reward of $1.000 was offered forI

Another reward of $1,500 was
made available for anyone find-

PAR DANIEL ARTY
Dans son petit livre fort bien documents sur .Les origins de l'hoin
mie aniricain', M. Paul Rivet formule une hypothese originate vrai-
ment faite pour nous interesser puisqu'elle met en cause le dbvelop-
pement ult6rieur de la race noire en Occident.
D'aprs cette hypothtse, la race noire au contact avec une race
diffi&ente paraitrait opposer peu de resistane A 'absorption. Tout
se passerait comme si ses caracteres particuliers 6taient, pour em-
ployer le language mendelien, dominds par ceux des autres races avec
lesquelles elle se melange. Pour appuyer son hypothese, Rivet cite
I'exemple du Bresil, o laI race noire s'est trouvee en contact avec
la race blanche. Se r6ferarit aux descriptions anciennes de Rio-de-
Janeiro, il constate que cette ville etait, il y a un sickle (1843) une
ville noire et qu'elle est manifestement ,A l'heure actuelle une ville
blanche. Dans ce cas particulier, pense Rivet, il ne semble pas
que l'afflux des immigrants europdens et la diminution de la fecon-
ditA chez les noirs suffisent A expliquer cette transformation. 'J'ai
l'impression 6crit-il, que c'est la multiplicity des unions entire blancs
et noirs, conditionn&e par 'absence de tout pr6jugd de races chez
les Portugais et chez leurs descendants qui a 6limind peu A peu l'l&-
ment noir, exactement comme dans les croisements centre souris blan
ches et souris grimes, c'est l'616ment gris qui finalement predomine..
Etant donn6 la grande notoriet& de l'auteur, on ne peut croire
qu'il ait- pu se hasirder A formuler A Ia la dgre une telle opinion.
Malgre tout, je dois confesser que cette these ne semble reposer
que sur des observations tres discutables. Est-il exact que la race
noire mise au contact avec une autre race offre peu .de resistance
A l'absorption? Je n'ai pas autorit6 pour me prononcer definitive-
ment sur ce point, tout en me r6servant de citer A ]a fin de cet ar-
ticle des donndes qui semblent contredire ce fait. Dans le cas par-
ticutier du Bresil la multiplicity des unions entire blancs et noirs
suffit-elle A expliquer ce que M. Rivet appelle l'limination A Rio-de-
Janeiro de l'element noir? Est-il vrai tue dans les croisements, les
noirs se coMnportent. comme fles souris blanches?
Je ne le crois pas. 11 est dommage, nous devons 'avouer tout de
suite, que pour nous gagner a son opinion, r'auteur s'en soit tenu
A l'exemple du Bresil, en particulier de la ville de Rio-de-Janeiro,
ear cet example nous parait tres pen convaincant. En efet, M. Rivet
neglige de mettre en lumiere certaines particularitds de l'histoire s
du Bresil qui auraient infirmd 'son hypothese. Et d'abord, il nous
faut reconnaitre avec lui que les colons portugais etaient denuus de
tons pr6juges de races. Depuis plus de quatre siecles, les marriages
centre blancs et noirs se pratiquent dans ce pays. II y a mieux: les t
femmes noires ont toujours Wte tres recherchees par ces colons. Au- r
jourd!hui encore, l'id6al de ia beauty pour un Brdsilien, e'est /a ma-
rena, la femme noire. On aimed A citer A ce sujet l'air prim4 au car- "
naval de 1948: *A inmlato 6 a taZ> qui fut chant avec enthousiasmet
par le people tout entier. Or, malgr l'attrait esercA par les noires
sur les portugais, malgre l'absence de tout prejuge racial, malgre 1H
de multiplea alliances datant de plus de trois siecles, Rio-de-JaneiroA
etalt encore au milieu du siecle dernier une ville noireL S'U etait t
vrai qu'au contact d'une autre race les noirs n'offrent aucune resis-

ville n'Atait pas, selon les anciennes descriptions, une agglomeration L
de mdtis des deux races, mats bien une ville noire. Aucune transfor-

par une brusque mutation, Rio devient blanche. Je veux bien que d
l'abolition ait accel&r' le rythme des alliances entire les deux races. D
Mais il nous faut admeltre que d'autres facteurs ont jou6. Quels sont .
ces facteurs? J'en veux 6numdrer trois qui me semblent prepond6- o
rants 1) la suppression de ]a traite: dis lors laccroissement de lo ai
population noire d4pendra uniquement de l'excdden.t des naissances e
sur tes decis 2) et parallelement l'inondation numdrique des euro- m
pens qui modifie la structure humaine du Brsil 3) les migrations si
Considirons le premier point: la suppression de la trait. Lors- o
qu'en 1888 la princess Isabelle, en sa qualitA d'e regente, sign le
dcret d'Amancipation, ii y avait dejA 36 ans que le commerce des c:
esclaves avait etW supprim6. La r6percusion la plus grave, du point -
de vue de la rIpartition des races, est cell qui s'exerce sur le volume
meme de la.population noire. En consequence, il n'est pas strange
(et ceei est vrai de l'Amdrique Latine en general) que de 1650 A nos
jours la population de souche europ~enne ait subi un accroissemeirt
de 620%, la population de souche non europ6enne, de 320%.seulement.
A cuoi faut-il attribuer ce fait, sinon au flot de l'immigration blan-
che? Comment expliquer autrement que la masse de la population
dans les 'regions temperkes de 'Amerique Latine, -regions favora-
bles A ['immigration eorop~enne- au Chili, en Argentine et en Uru-
guay soil revenue blanche tandis qu'au Guatemala par example les
autochtones representent 60% de la population? Faudrait-il en con-
clure que les caracteres particuliers des indiens sont dominos et
dominants A la fois, qu'ils offrent peu de resistance au Chili et triom-
phent au Guatemala. Ce serait absurd. II sem'ble done que r'affliiux
des immigrants europeens ait grandement contribute A modifier la
nature de la population bresilienne.
