The Governmen of France has
ordered a cruiser to the Russian
Ealtic Provinces for the protec
tion of her citizens.
In the recent battle between
the Russian troops and the revo
lutionists at Moscow five thous
anti were killed and fourteen
Russia is to day undergoing
the greatest struggle in her his
tory'in an attempt to keep her
head above water. The revolu
tionists party apparently is
gaining strength daily, which if
not crushed at an early date, we
may expect to see rise from the
ashes of the Rusian Empire, one
the mnightiest republics on the
face of the globe.
Now that the canal being cut
by the Pecan Island people be
tween White and Grand Lakes
is nearing completion, it would
b well that the people at this
end of the parish and especially
the business men of Abbeville
:take some steps to connect
8chooner 'Bayou with White
Lake by the digging of a canal,
or the opening up of the west
end of that bayou which will
only require about live miles
of dredging that would not cost
over five thousand dollars at the
most, on account of the easy
digging. The opening up of
this bayou would admit the the
~assage of light draft vessels
and from the Jennings Oil
?ield, Lake A rthur, ,ueydan and
a ecan Island. thereby greatly
redducing the freight rates on oil
rtihnd lumber and the controlling
it the Pecan Island trade by
:the town of Abbeville. Not only
":ould this canal serve for trans
Iortation purposes, but serve
,as a drainage canal with the
.reclamation of some 25,000 acres
'of marsh land, that would be
dIade to produce, whereas it now
:ffords pasturage for only a few
bhead of cattle. These lands,
whien brought into cultivation
'.td recognized by the leading
g6iculturists, as the most pro
4ductlve. in the 8tate. Then
=W h for so tritle amout" are they
t.d-'wed to remain idle? Aside
frisn this there is a commercial
f~eature for the town of Abbeville
thlt our business institutions
can not well afford too loose.
tr k of.
: At last the towns -along the
.branch line leading out from
New lberia to Guevdan and from
ILake Charles to Lake Arthur
;have awaken to the crying ne
cessity of closing the 12 mile gap
between Gueydan and Lake Ar
r. ..Strange is it not that they
ve been so long asleep to this
aost important matter? A mat
(er which is of more imortance
to the material welfare of this
belt thau any known enterprise
a the face of the globe. The
iclosing of this gap would mean
o every town along the route
are awakening in business mat
ters. It would be far more bene
-fieial to any' of the towns than
the erection of two rice mills, in
fact the closing of this short
gap would mnean more to this
sectimn than one at this date can
$nlmagine. I he towns to be
Ulmost benefitted are Gueydan and
h~ake Arthur, yet the other
-iwnus along the line will recive
their proata of the benefits, and
abould therefore be willing to
ti. p in for the buying of that
rt strip of right-of-way which
-will not be given by the owners

,passes. If a clear right-of-way

~tiver up to the town of Guey

Sthe roud hy a joint committee
