30th. oil the tCOidl da ,as doincs of
the Good Roads Convention held in
that city for three days. The iim
portance of the assembling of this
conventio in uPt have been wide
spread when we notice that every
parish in the State was reprepresented
fromuone to six delegates, and there
is no dount thlnt good result:: will
follow from this meeting. A State
Good Roads Convention was organ
ized and branches will be'formed in
every parish, which will go imumedi
ately to work to give more attention
to such an important matter that has
been sadly neglected in the past.
'!The Good IRtads Convention
opened/itd diession yesterday at Odd
Fellows' Hall; and the opening was
so aispicious and enthusiastic as to
assure jhe success of the conventlion

The attendance was large, far
larger than expected, there being
some 200 delegates present fromI
thirty.one parishes of Louisiana,
together with a large inumber of
visitors from Mississippi and Ala
baina, who came to New Orleans for
the purpose opf learning all they can
learn here of road hbuilding.
It was not alone in numbers that
the convention was strong, but in
the character of the men present.
Few gatherinlgs in the State have
brought together a larger number of
representative men, leaders of public
opinion; and the Interest shown and
enthusiasm aroused carried the first t
day's session through, with a vim
that promises the best results.
The proceedings opened with ad
dresses of welcome by Gov. Heard
and Mayor Capdevielle. The Gov

present at the convention, and-spoke s
earnestly as to the importance of F
better roads in Louisiani, and prom.

the onvebtion, pointel out that.
good roads are becoming each year
a more important question to the .
American people; and lhe expressed "
the opinion that they would in time
be one of the leading issues in poll I
ties, the people requiring menu elect- a
ed to otice to do all in their power n
tosecure good roads. Mr. Moore s
has been working earnestly .for bet- ,
ter highways, and the association of 0
which hie is plresident has accom.
plished much good. He urged the
organization of a Southern Good
Roads Association to be a part of
the Nation Associatiou, to arouse -
interest in this question throughout. al
the South and to co.olerate in thie d
onstruction of better highways; and vi
he pointed out all that good roads
mean, the savi:g of millions of dol "

lion. Andrew Pattullo, membner i
of the Canadian Parliament ani i

out.how much had been accomplish.

good roads contributed to the-pleas.- s

like France and England, which tt
keep their highways in good order. d
The speeches were instructive and b
interesting, and aroused the enthu it
