ASCENSION CROP NOTES.
Continued from First Page.
ing about to be started will be made
more substantial by the purchase of a
considerable quantity of cane from the
state board of control, who will send
to the Belle Helene central the surplus
cane from the Oakley and Monticello
plantations, in East Baton Rouge par
ish, that cannot be handled at the
small Monticello mill. Just how much
this will give to the Belle Helene mill
is not exactly known, but it would not
be surprising if it brought the total
cane tonnage for this central house to
about a figure approximating the ton
nage handled the past grinding, 18,600,
when the 3,000,000-mark was topped in
In anticipation of a larger grinding
than appeared in sight some months
past, preparations were made to im
prove and increase the capacity of the
Belle Helene factory, and these were
carried out, notwithstanding the short
age in the crop. The chief engineer
and his worthy assistant, respectively
Val. Wehrman and H. S. Armstrong,
were kept busy all summer and this
early fall putting the house in proper
shape with its new installations and
now have everything ready for the
smoothest grinding ever conducted
there. The chief improvement was the in
crease in steam and mill capacity, the
former effected by the erection of a bat
tery of three Casey & Hedges tubular
boilers, 72"x18', which were set over
three Dutch ovens, the furnaces fitted
to burn either oil or bagasse or both. A
change to the six-foot mill was made
by having the top roller on the front
mill displaced by the patent all-steel
Newell crusher-roller. This is an in
novation to the Louisiana sugar in
dustry, though used in foreign sugar
countries with much success, it is said,
and the results at the Belle Helene
central will be watched with interest by
the local sugar fraternity. The manu
facturers claim that by the virtue of
their one-roll crusher the front mill
alone may be made to extract about
two-thirds of the juice, and by the
cutting, splitting and crushing action
exerted prepare the cane in a very
thorough manner for the second mill,
this calculated to relieve the strain on
the second mill and effect increased
extractions; also give the mill greater
capacity, the manufacturers claiming
an increase of 25 per cent. Another
installation worthy of mention is the
cane derrick, put up by the plantation
carpenter and sugar boiler, Camille
Rome, and located at the end of the
carrier to be used to feed cane either
from the carts or cars direct, or to
store therefrom on the ground if de
sired. The derrick is of the angle
sort, with a 60-foot boom, the angle
changeable at will by means of a
wrench located on the mast. The der
rick is operated by a Lambert hoist
that in turn is run by a shaft from the
carrier drag that is a part of the link
belt overhead or suspended carrier
feeding arrangement, such as those in
operation at about a half-dozen of the
state's larger sugar mills.
In front of the Crevasse plantation,
a short distance below Bowden, en
largement of the levee was under way
at the time this section was visited.
B. J. Bingay, the proprietor of the
Crevasse place; and owner of the store
there, tells that the contractors, Hearin
& Ryan, of Baton Rouge, are opera
ting their great traveling dredge day
and night on their strip of levee work
beginning up at the Southwood plan
tation line, this only a small bit of
the reinforcement levee work that the
government has under way. The levee
is being made mountain high by rais
ing itj-o a grade four or five feet higher
than at present, doubling the crown
surface and making the base forty to
fifty feet broader. Rapid progress is
being made by the contractors, who
are lifting and putting in place from
1400 to 2000 cubic yards of earth to
every seption of 100 feet. The Cre
vasse place is only a small part of
what was formerly a fair-sized sugar
property, and the owner cultivates ten
acres of cotton, which should return
him five to six bales, and about twenty
acres were grown t. corn. The long
drouth, which lasted from Good Fri
day until the first part of the present
month, affected the crops, yet the corn
grown was very good.
The Gem plantation of C. A. Keller,
the next in line, has about 125 acres
of cane, plant and stubble, and 100
acres in cotton. The Gem gin handles
cotton for surrounding farmers as well,
and it is probable a total of about 250
bales will be turned out this season.
The cane from here is sold to the Belle
Helene central and the chances are
that next year more cane will be raised
by Gem's owner, for he will next sea
son lease the :mall adjoining Willow
Grove plantation of W. J. O'Neil,
which is in cane at present.
Simon Landry's St. Mary planta
tion, just below Gem, has about thirty
acres devoted to cane and fifteen to
cotton. This cane is likewise sold to
The Cut Off plantation is leased and
cultivated by Fred. Taddiken, who is
most favorably known to a large cir
cle of sugar friends as having for
merly been occupied for many years
in the management of sugar estates in
different parts of the state. Desiring
a life of more independence and great r
ease, he forsook the cane fields about
six or seven years ago and took to
cotton culture. His first attempt in
this line was on the Ben Hur planta
tion, in East Baton Rouge, coming to
the Cut Off place January, 1904. This
150-acre property had a bad name and
it was the general opinion that it could
not be made to produce any paying
crop; but the fallacy of the idea was
soon proved, for the first Taddiken
cotton out-turn was sixty bales: the
1905 production was short, only ahalf
crop, but this season another sixty
bale out-turn should be registered from
the 100 acres devoted to the staple.
Having been a good sugar planter,
the present lessee believes in rotati, g
his land and in the restorative abili
ties of cow peas. Accordingly, he grew
this season forty acres of corn and
peas, the corn being very fair and
equal to furnisbing the feeding needs
ol the place.

Potts Says the Fight is Won.
Paul M. Potts, president of the Lou
isiana division of the Southern Cot
ton Association, has addressed the
following circular letter to the cotton
farmers of Louisiana:
"The cotton growers of the south
have made the fight for ten-cent cot
ton and have won, thus demonstrating
to the world that the man who grows
the cotton has as much voice in the
fixing of the price as the man who buys
it. We may expect raids on the mar
ket from time to time, but we have
nothing to do but withdraw our cot
ton from the market every time a raid
is made, selling only on the bulges.
"Every person who is willing to
look at the situation justly must see
that the persistent holding of cotton
off the market caused the recent ad
vance above 10 cents, and that the
work of the Southern Cotton Associa
tion has resulted in much good and
should be supported by every man
who grows a bale of cotton."

Get Busy is the title of a bright little
paper started by the New Orleans Pro
gressive Union for the purpose of
promoting the work of the organiza
tion, and the initial number gives 1
promise of the full success of its mis

breezy style which is characteristic of
such up-to-date newspaper men as
Secretary M. B. Trezevant and Assist
ant Secretary E. D. Burrows, and
there can be no doubt that the semi- I
occasional issues of Get Busy are
going to prove a valuable auxiliary
in the campaign for increased member
ship of the Progressive Union and a
corresponding advancement of the I
city's material interests.
