Mr. Mouton reported in be
Ialf of the coinmittee appointed
to ,locate .site for the D. O. Brous
saLrd bridge, that the commu iittee
ihad held conference with com
mnittee from Vermilion and both
coin ulittees iad unanimously
agreed to locate said bridge at
Colunibus Br ussard's place,
llle nine arl>ents above tile o(ld
site. IIr. Catfery appeared for
a num lber of protestants from
the fourth ward, objecting to the
prol'posed location for various
reasc ns and presenting a peti
tion againt the adoption of the
coumlittee's report. MIr. Iou
ton argued that the site was the
pjroper one and was the best to
be obtained in the interest of the
whole parish. Mr. WVhittington
also favored the proI)posed new
site and contended that the adop
tion of the old site had resulted
in the breaking of the bridge by
steam-boats several times.
Hon. Overton Cade addressed
the jury, giving the history of
previous negotiations with Ver
milion and acknowledging the
D. O. Broussard site unsuitable
and favoring building the new
bridge some -0 feet below the
old site. Mr. Blanchet stated
that he thought the building at
the new site would entail more
expense than at the old site. By
motion of iMr. Buchanan, the
replort of the commuittee was re
ceived, action postponed, and
the same committee continued
and instructed to ascertain
further as to costs of different
roads and approaches to thei
various sites recommended.

irregularities and defects in tile

yet, upon the wholh'. everything
had been done for tlhe best by

with him. Mr. PWhittington also
contended against increasing the
school approplriation and favored
pIlacing the pIro)osl'd increase to
bridge and road funds.
By motion of IMr. MIouton the
budget was athl iptd as reol)rted;
whereul)tn Mr. Buchanan had
entered upon tile ,ofticial record
the following reasons for his

that tlthe all)rollriation is larger
than is necessary withl an eco

gross vIolation of the school
