The Daily States says that th
Democrats of New York and Ohi

issues and thus get their full part;

SUrbana, Ohio, was the secene of a

the present situation: "It seems to
me r:ow that those of us wro contrib

very great mistake was made last

I have no suggestion to make to our

the last high water fight, lie made
for himself as a Cmmnissioner a
record that any older melmber minight
be well prond of. We have that
limuch confidenee in him that we
would feel secure if the iliterests of
the levees of our parish were repre
sented by him before the commiis
sion. His pleasant address, his
wonderful energy and tenacity, his
clear and logical way of presentui,
- a statement are so well known that
all of us would feel that in his lanJ.s
our interests would be safe.
At this juncture, we cannot afford
to remain idle; the levees on both
sides of the river above us are to be
S raised several feet above the grade
1 of last year, and in conisequence a
- great deal of work will be needed to
t put our own levees u1) to that grade,
and since the means of the Levee
Board are so limited this year, e
need all the help we can cot from
the River Commission. We know
that our lpolice jury las the greatest
confidence in Mr. Ransdell'P talents
and ability, and we think that in
case the Levee Board should fall to
appoint him as one of their r(lpre.
sentatives before the River Conl:nii
sion, that it would be nothing" lbut
proper that they send him as the
representative of this parish. No
better man could be chosci.
