CMUMlS. A. HOMAS
AND HOMER J. MOUTON,
anmered at the Laapyette Isa. Potae.tYfe as Second
SATURDAY, JUNE 24, 1893.
It is admitted that there has been
mo systematic effort made to bring
the merits of oar rich soil, genial
clinmate, and other material advan
sages before the world of home
seekers. Except in the instance of
she Southern Pacific railroad and
the Watkins syndicate, no effective
efforts have been put forth, and
thea eompanies have been instru
mnental in bringing in a large immi
gration, but these efforts have been
confined to Calcasienu parish. That
parish is to-day settled by a thrifty
and intelligent set of people, just
that kind-that make the prosperity
Ofia country:3 From being-way down
is the scale that parish is to-day
well up, and all because her peo
ple have spent the time and means
necessary to correctly inform the
world, just the sort of country.
they have got.
We do not believe the state
anent that the lands of Lafayette are
by far more fertile and better
adapted to the growth of a larger
variety of plants, can be successfully
controverted, yet for every immi
grant that stops in our parish, Cal
casieu receives fully Soo, and the
season lies in the fact that they know
absolutely nothing of our lands.
No one can with justice feel jea
bous of Calcasieu; she deserves every
immigrant that steps within her bor- t
ders, because she has gone after a
them, and she should reap the bene- t
fit of her labors. d
In penning this article we simply l
wish to show that the prosperity of I
the parish depends entirely on the
efforts of her people, and that the t,
mention of Calcasies is for the pur- f
pose of showing that her growth and ti
prosperity came, not by any element j
of chance, but solely by intelligentn
effort on the part of her people, and tt
teaches a lesson well worth emula
THE ASSESSMENT. Q UES- th
To equalize assessments so that of
every object upon which it is placed am'
will bear equal and exact propor- St
tions of justice, without detriment
to any, has been a vexed question 'in
and a source of annoyance to the tc
assessors who mean to do their duty
strictly according to law.
But it seems the law is of such a R
nature that in spite of the best in
tentions some injustice creeps in,
but to what extent in the aggregate
it is hard to say. It has been de
monstrated by some newspapers in
the State that while the small land
owner pays taxes on a full valua- em
tion of his property, the large and ts
rich land owner generally escapes of
with a moderate assessment. Some M
time since The Gazette read a state- R.
ment wherein it was alleged that the COI
assessment placed on a large estate res
was $1o an acre, and on the resi- 'me
dence, costing $5000, at only £rooo; 1
while on the other hand, a small eXt
farmer owning So acres was as- rut
sessed at .ro an acre and on his set
shanty costing $300, the amount C.
was fixed at $25o, a proportion out to
of all reason, There may be many hie
such instances throughout the State we
for aught we know. It is in just tiol
such cases where the wrong creeps rc
in, and it is to correct this evil that
the press of the State are agitating

creation of a law that will make as

a most enjoyable event. As a gen

getting the most pleasure out of such La

in her efforts to see that all enjoyed as

The picnic party left town at
9:3o a. m. A number of large to
wagons were fairly loaded down with
children, their light and pretty cos

most stril~sg and pretty picture. thc
After a pleasant ride talong a . road E.
skirted on both slides with beautiful ant
plantations of cotton, corn, and Ic

the Carencro springs, where they
decided to spend the day. And a lik
