Mr. J. II. McCarthy, who has
the contract for building the Mem
phis, Helena and Louisiana railroad,
was in Providence on Thursday,
and we are reliably informed that
work will be started through the en
tire parish in a very short time
within the next four or five weeks.
Mr. McCarthy was here for the pur
pose of seeing Mr. Itobt. Nicholson,
who has the contrAct for the em.
bankment work of the road in this
parish, and who has a. large outfit
ready to go to work at any moment.
The tie contractor has bought tim.
her at several points along the line
of the contemplated road, and will
put men to work immediately on
getting the ties ready for use.
The road bed to he thrown up in
this parish is almost nothing and
with good weather rapid progress
can be made. It is reported that
the officials of the road will rush it
to completion and have trains run
ning over it before January first.
From the Louisiana line up, work
is now being done very fast, several
outfits being put on in the past few
weeks, and Mr. McCarthy says that
part of the road bed will soon be
completed and cross ties and rails
will be laid with a rush.
A New Enterprise.
Mr. Joseph L. Fischer, a hustling
and enterprising citizen, is now pre
pared to take contracts for building
houses, either brick or frame. To
assist him in the contracting business,
he has secured Mr. R. J. Longmire,
formerly in the employ of the
Enoch-HIavis Lumber Co., of Vicks
burg. Mr. Longmire is an expe.
rienced contractor, and any work
undertaken by him will be done in
strictly modern style. We are glad
to note this new departure of the
Fischer Lumber Company, for peo
ple contemplating building can let
their contracts to home talent instead
of sending away for workmen. Mr.
Fischer will have a number of car
penters here in a short while, and he
will he ready for the coming boom.
Consult him and get his prices.
The river is now falling at a rapid
rate, and it will be "ldead low" by
thie time the June rise sets in.
The gauge readt on Frilday morning
last 29.70( and yesterday morning
22.80, which is a fall of 6.90 for the
'rie Blaton Itouge Advocate says
that "''Senator Money made a holy
splectacle of himself for five cents.
Ilia own error in taking the wrong
atreet car and the limited time he
had in which to catch a train ought
to have suggested to him the pro
priety of paying an extra nickle
rather than Ilaying second fiddle in
a street brawl-"
Tl'here is thie biggest kind of a
war on hand in the city of Monroe
over the wharf privileges, and the
Mayor shouldered a shot gun the
other day and threatened to shoot
the first man who interferred. It
is all over the letting of the wharf
privileges to a certain person and
another opening up an independent
lalnding, which the mayor says is
contrary to law. When men take
the law in their own hands, and es
pecially sworn officers, things are
coming to a pretty pass.
A horrible accident occurred in ]
lssqnena county, Miss., last Sunday
night, in which four colored chil.
dren lost their lives. It is the same
old story where the careless parents
locked their children in their cabiu
and went off to church, and during
their absence the cabin caught on t
fire and the children were burned to
death. There is not a colored per.
son living on plantations that do not
knbw the danger of going off and
leaving their children locked in their
cabins, and why they will continue I
to do such careless acts we do not

COTTON SEED AND WHISKY
Mr. Editor.-Please allow me to ex.
press my commendation, writ large,
of the article in your paper of the 26th
instant, undec. caption of "Cotton Seed
and Whisky,"fronim An Old Planter's"
trenchant pen. His statement, how
ever, that, 1'I have never heard a
preacher in East Carroll inveigh in
the pulpit against the appalling drunk.
enness and gambling that is almostI
universal in our parish," makes one of
two facts self-evident; either. he is not
a regular attendant upon divine ser
vice, or habitually :its in the .'wrong
pew." Hladl he frequented the M. E.
Church South. of which I have had the
honor of being pastor, for about eigh
teen months, he coulI have learned
there, almost any Sabbath, that his
arraignmnent of the whisky traffic, and t
the mo:al debasement to which it uni.
versally reduces a people, is but an
echo of the philippics systematically
hurled against thiis king of terrors and t
the terror of kings. t
It is the devout wish of this scribe e
that the article under review may I
prove the Genesis of a movement which z
shall serve to arouse from their .,Rip P
Van Winkle Sleep" the white popula- c
tion of this community who alone are I
responsible for tihe colossal curse that
rests upon this fair land of ours.
