The census bulletin for Louis
isan has finally been given out,
which, if it had been given in alpha
beticsl order, would have been
abhead of many other states.
The parish of East Carroll does
not show up well by this census, and
in the past ten years, from 1890 to
1900, there is a falling off in popula
tion of 989g In 1890, when the last
census was taken the parish had a
population-of 12,362, while the 1900
census shows 11,373. We do not
believe the census is correct; nor is
Ihees a person inthe paisheb who will
believe it. We cannot but thonk that
the enumerators, who were selected
for this important work failed to
make a thorough canvas; not that it
was intentional, but because it was
not done as thoroughly as it should
have been. It is a well known fact
that there has been more people to
come to the parish than has left it in
the past ten years. Take the back
part of the parish, for instance; to
day there are fully 500 people living
out there, while ten years ago there
was not over one hundred; be
sides, the town of Providence has
to-day 1,256 people within the cor
porate limits, while in 1890 there
were only 642, and still the third
ward has a falling off in population.
The census bulletin gives the
population of the wards of the parish,
ward 1................... .2,088 2.176
Ward, ...... ... .... . . 3,211 8.019
Ward 8, Including Lake Provi
deuce ................ 8.154 8,485
Lsk Providence............1.256 642
! C ......................... 1,476 2,017
.'..l .......................1,444 1$
XIa the past 10 years the first ward
basfallen off in population, 88; the
second ward, 68; the third ward 331,
even with the large increase of popu
Ution in the town of Providence; the
Mb ward, 541; the fifth ward, 191.
If we are to take the books of as
sesor McRae as correct, we find
that three years ago he placed the
names of 8,825 educable children
on the roll, which, giving tour to a
family, which we believe is the aver
age given, it would give us a popule
sin the parish of 15,300, or
7 over the census of 1900, which
would be nearer correct than the
bulletin gives the parish.
West Carroll parish has a popula
tion of 68885, against a population
of 8748 in 1890.

of Cudahy; at Omaha a few weeks

AM IMPORTAaT MATTER.
We clip the following editorial
from the Daily States of the 23d, in
regard to the appointment of Con
gressman Ransdell on the Rivers and
Harbers Committee. The States is
very complimentary to Mr. Rans
dell, and we hope that the
editorial will lend its weight in
helping him to secure the place.
He has the support of the entire
Louisiana and Mississippi mem
bers of Congress, besides many
others from different States. No man
T in Congress is better fittedl for the
place, as far as the people of the
delta are concerned, than Jos. E.
r. Ransdell. The States says:
A question of pressing moment to
us of Louisiana just at the present
time is now up for consideration in
Congress. The retirement of Gen
eral Catchings from the Congress,
which will occur on the fourth of
March, leaves vacant on the Rivers
and Harbors Committee of the House,
a position which Louisiana ought to
make every effort to secure. The
great river, the improvement ol
which absorbs so large a proportion
of the appropriations coming under
the scope of the duties of this com
m iittee, effects Louisiana and its in
terests to a much greater extent than
any other State, hence it is impor
a- tant that this State should have a
t, representative on that committee
a- whose ability and knowledge of the
question will enable him to hold his
' own with the other great interests
that contend for a share of the ap
es propriations the committee is called
d upon to fix. On his way to Wash
to ington last night Congressman Bruos
sard left as his New Year's message
a- to the press and people of Louisiana
at the advice that we should leave noth
a ing undone to secure for Louisiana
)O the position made vacant by Genera
ot Catchings' retirement.
The Louisiana delegation in Con
is gress has already taken the initative
ill in the matter and are actively urging
at Congressman Ransdell for the posi
ed tion, and they feel that if they are
strongly backed up in their fight they
to will be able to win. Gen. Catch
it ings made a most able, faithful an,
as vigilent champion of the interests o
Id the lower valley and as long as he
was in Congress Louisiana felt nc
apprehensioc that her vast interests
to in this great question would be over
in looked. Prior to General Catchings
ek tenure of service we had Blanchard
o- whose intimate knowledge of the en
tire subiect and his long experience
°g made him an authority whose opin
re ions and views on matters con
'e- nected with Mississippi river imn
as provement were accepted almos
r- without question in Congress. \Vitl
both these able and zealous chamn
re pions of our interests now out o
rd Congress it becomes necessary fo
a. Louisiana to make prompt and united
be effort to secure, upon this vital comn
mittee, asuccessor whose ability and
fidelity will give assurance that oui
interests will be safeguarded in the
next Congress. Mr. Broussard points
out that although the appointment to
fill this vacancy will not be formally
made until next December-unless,
,17 indeed, an extra session should be
a convened-yet the time to start the
rd movement is now, as the plans will
1e all be laid during the next month or
1 so, and only the formal announce
meat of the succession will be de
' ferred until the new Congress meets.
Me Mr. Broussard concurs in the
j. judgment of the balance of the dele
*. gation from the State that Ransdell
is the man to push for this most im
portant post, and be recognizes the
e fact that his support should be madei
n as strong as possible if we hope to
a win this post for Louisiana.
S Congressman Ransdell is one of
the most intelligent, indlustrious and
Saggressive members of the present
r House and his knowledge of river
b improvement isihe result of a long
se tudy of the subject, re-enforcedl by
a vast amount of practical experi
ence gained as a working member of
one of the levee boards which he has
bad to grapple with some of the most
n ditfficult situations in the history of
river improvement. All his interests
lie in the alluvial district of the State
n and much of the time during the best
.s years of his manhood has been put
0 in fighting the encroachments of the
river upon his own riparian estates
Sand those of his neighbors. In ad
. dition, as a member of his local levee
d board, in the Legislature and in the
r- Constitutional Convention he gave
earnest thought and study to the
problem of devising practical meas
r ures for the protection of the allu
vial districts from overflow, and for
Lt the improvement of the great river
y which has been the prolific source of
n so much of good and ill to the peo
e ple inhabiting the lower valley.
It would seem that New Orleans,
e Louisiana and the lower valley could
e unite upon no more efficient, experi
5 enced and able a representative from
the Fitth Congressional district of
this State. He already hans the sup
n port of our delegation in Congress,
and it is also reported that other
Y congressmen from this section of the
e country have promised their support.
n In view of these facts and as a recog
y nition of the comtliment, as well as
the practical benefit to Louisiana to
have one of her representatives on
5 this important committee, prompt
a steps ought to be taken to make the
f support of Mr. Ransadell by his home
State strongly felt at Washington
and throughout the valley.
The Monroe Daily Star comment
Sing on the above complimentary edi
torial of Mr. Ransdell, says:
We copy the above article in full
from the States, only to endorse
every word in it. Every one who
Iknows Mr. Ransdell, feels that he
would serve upon this committee
with a view to getting the best re
suits for Louisiana and Mississippi
alike, as the interests of both States
are entirely identical, and that Mr.
Ransdell would certainly do his best,
is not only the opinion of the press
and people but of General Catchings
himself, who has openly endorsed
Mr. Ranasdell as the best man for his
successor. Recently the Vicksburg
Herald and the Vicksburg Evening
Post, both contained very flattering a
editorial endorsements of Mr. Rans
dell for this plane, and it now ap
pears to be only a matter of waltimg i
until the time comes, for the honor
to be tendered our distinguished

Left his home in all its splendor,
Long to hear the cannon ball.

Congress first was held,
e Two men trom Louisiana calmly rang
One was Semmes of that fair city,
Which still dreams, beside the sea,
I One was Sparrow. and his memory
To the South should holy be.
For his courage in that dark hour
SScorned all danger, all retreat.
i Friends we place this simple wild flower
As a tribute at his feet.

By white jessamines over tombs,
By the bayous green-lit gloom,

On ribbed cypress trees that grow
Near the water's flow,
We love thee. Louisiana.
By his voice. in Senate Hall, thrilling
To the South's bands calls.
By the great Confederate fall,
We love thee. Louisiana.
