'Agricultural Meeting. meat
Thlieeleventh annual meeting of great
the State Agricultural Society will for tl
be held at Baton Rouge on the 27th, new
28th and 29th of the present month, RIM
which will be a very important
meeting, and we hope that some one Burt
from our parish will be present.
The Daily States in an editorial T tl
on the subject says: I
"There was never a more oppOr- T
tune time than now to secure immi- the
gration from the bleak Western and Con,
Northwestern Stes to this land of rhi
sunshine and flowers, where soil and
climate combine to make it the Stal
garden spot of the world. A num- J
ber of distinguished promoters of web
agriculture and immigration will be ion
in attendance, and will deliver in- Stal
structive addressee on subjects in agr
line with the purposes of the society. Lot
One of the most important subjects cou
for consideration, will be the organ- Sta
ization ot Parish and State fairs, the
while especial attention will be given we
to immigration matters. It is also edu
hoped to form a stok.-breekers' as- for
sociation. All the railroads 1ave hot
consented to give reduced rates, and imp
there should be a full attendance, des
for there is no subject that should so me
largely interest our people as those in
which will be intelligently dis- dot
cussed." inm

River Commission and Revetments.
D ens
r In the press discussions of the Com- pal
mission's discard, from future tests ial
and operations, of channel control w
through any general plan of bank pro- Br
tectidu, such as revetment and spur
f dike appliances, there has been a lack
r of explicit statement of the motive or an
the extent and effect of the departure att
decided upon. With the Commercial- rot
d Herald this omission has resulted from I g
t lack of Ioch information as the Com- thi
mission repot alone could properly
and fully furnlsh. This report now g,
benlg at hand, we will supplement ac- t
cordingly a preyions article, which
was aimed to clear up certain misun
a derstanditgs growing out of a pars- Al
graph from the report of the Aecre- be
tary of War. In conveying knowledge an
g upon the subject as intimated, we will to
o but epitomise from the contents of the th
SComnmisielon's report. ar
In the first place it la well to state
the original idea of the Cqmmission
on this point, which we do by quoting
d as follows, from the report ; "If the
a works for bank protetiou originally
to projected had proved& sufficient, as it
was hoped they might, to hold the
I- banks of the river with permanence, a
. substantial improvement of the chau
nel throughout the worst reaches C,
Le would have keen possible by this time.
is When thefjiled to realize those ex
pedtations the problem became a new
one." As our readers generally are
3h aware the "worst reaches" selected for
application and test of the various Si
in methods of bank protection, were
ot Lake Providence and Plum Point.
Je There were others, bat these were the tl
id chief points of experimental zatio:.
Work there has rim through a series >
le of years, and at a cost of some mil
)i- lions of dollars. The result led to the
ut 'new problem" as stated in the above n
extract, which began to dawn upon r
at the Commission some years ago. t
re There has been learning and unlearn
et lag upon this vast and intricate lessons
at every period and stage of the efforts
as to protect the banks and correct the b
channel defects there by, in those e
reaches. Methods and appliance,
at have been modified and discarded as
s they were tested and failed. Revet
s- ment and dikes constructed with the
Sutmost'carse have proven insecure and
Id wasted, under the force of the current
asidthe nature of the soil of the banks. d
The coast with an ejer decreasing scale
d for labor and material, has gone up
re fromt a rt est linlate of eleven dollars
ial per running foot, to thirty. This point,
-t the reasons and causes leading up to
the couviction which was a disaippoint
et ment is argued by the Commission
rd, ably and elaborately. We will quote
from the conclusions: "From all of
these facts together it becaine appar- I
or- eat several years ago-not all at once, 1
ral but gradually, as facts accumulated
and the deductions of experience were
Sunfolded-that it was not possible by
any or alk of the methode which bad
sh boen employed, to accomplish such
hI permanent improvement of the river
from Cairo down as was necessary to
Smeet the orgent demands of commerce
the within any reasonable time to come.
5 * * * It was recognized
from the beginning of the Commis
eion's work that the construction of
e. works of bank protection and channel
cootraetion in detached reaches would
rust be subject to Influences more or less
o unfavorable, from changes ia nopro
tected bends above."
itor These apprehensions of the effect of
1 inoetees from above, upon. the un
say protected ends of works, have been
more than verifed. Says the report,
"the experience gained in those reaches
get (Latke Providence Ind Plum Point)
At- eemphasises the tact that it is highly
Important in any project for general
g and permanent bank protection to
Yeleave no unprotected reaches above
with the work done, from changes in which
aof mew conditions may be produced in
Simproved parts of the river." This of
course leads up to the coneclusion that
ad In any complete and permanent system
old of bank protection the work must co*n
meuce at or near Calro, and be carried
down stream .with substantial con

To the'Citizens of Louisiana: II
Baton Rouge, La., Decem'ber 28, 1896. wert
The eleventh annual meeting of TI
the State Agricultural Society will lowi
convene in Baton Rouge the 27th,
28th, and 29th- of January, 1897. Ti
Fhis meeting will be one of the most the
important that has been held in the Fini
State. harv
Just now the North and North- Tree
west are looking with eager eyes han
towards the South anxious to make The
homes in our sunny climate. No Tb
State in the South presents such For
agricultural resources as the State of
Louisiana, and no section of the
Scountry is susceptible of such indefi
nite development as our favored
State. To induce immigration to
the State, to give value to our lands,
we must develop along the lines of The
education, agriculture and immigra- et
tion, and these three subjects will
form the trinity upon which we `
e hope to build the future edifice of Ma
improvement in the State, and we tha
1, desire to laty the corner stone at this the
o meeting.
Your presence is earnestly solicited
in order that we may have the wis
dom of your valuable advice in shap. E J
ing the developments of these inter- t4
eats in Louisiana. We sincerely. Yal
hope that you will aid us by coming. C
s' We anticipate adopting measures Bae
encouraging the organization of G
I- parish and State fairs and give spec- .
Lu ial attention to immigration matters.
> We also expect to organize a Stock
' Breeders Association. We there
fore call nupon you and your friends vE
r and upon every patriotic citizen to CI
.e attend this convention. All rail- Ms
1- roads in Louisiana have very kindly
in given a fare of one and one third for. tor
u- this occasion. E
