Morgan Home tor a Few Days.
Congressman Lewis L. Morgan
arrived in Covington Monday
evening having been called from
Washington on important mat
ters connected with the suit of
the parish involving the right to
collect taxes on the Shore Line
of the New Orleans Great North
ern Railroad Company. amount
ing to the sum of $30,000. The
fact that Mr. Morgan was at
torney for the parish before he
was elected to Congress put him
in possession of important infor
mation that made his presence
desirable. This information
has made plain certain points un
der discussion, and the parish is
now ready to proceed with the
case at once, and after the trans
action of some business in hand
Mr. Morgan will leave for Wash
ington, probably on Monday.
where he will pay tribute to the
memory of the late Hon. Robert
C. Wickliffe, February 23, in
an address before the House.
Mr. Morgan has made many
friends while in Washing
ton, and bids fair to become ong
of the members of the House`
He has been made a member of
several important committees
and is interesting himself in leg
islation that will benefit the peo
ple. Among the bills that he hast
in preparation is one for the es
tabligbment of a bureau of mar
kets in the Department of Agri
culture. This measure is one of
great importance to the farmer
and would make it much easier
for him to market his produce
and to realize a fair profit, as iti
would cut out a lot of middle-men. b
One of the secrets of Mr Mor
gan's popularity is his scrupu- a
lousshonesbty and fairness, and r
this trait of his character has
called forth favorable comment in a
Collier's Weekly, in regard to r
his recent vote in seating a mem
ber of congress. in which he h
sacrificed his natural inclination
to party support, to his sense of
justice and right. It is this
trait of honesty that has won him
so many friends here in hishome
parish, and people here were so
glad to see hin that it was almost
impossible to get a few momencs
conversation with him.-St.Tam

- Timber Striker Ordered to
Lake Charles. La., Feb. 18.
The development to-day at Mer
t ryville, while not of a sensational
n nature, were of such a charac
ter as to make it plain that the
citizens of that place intended to
take things in their own hands.
The union headquarters were
Svery quietly visited this morning
f shortly after 11:30 o'clock, the
effects of the Brotherhood of
Timber Workers being gotten
together and carefully packed
and shipped to DeRidder, with
the message that the business
men and citizens of that place
did not propose to stand for any
more labor disturbances, intimi
dation of men and coercion in an
effort to shut down the big plant
of the American Lumber Com
pany, which refuses to unionize
its forces by recognizing the
brotherhood. H. 0. Lawrence
and John Hill, two men who have t
recently appeared at Merryville,
were told to leave town immedi
ately and not to return. Law
rence has been conducting the
soup kitchenl which the strikers
have been maintaining in a tent
for a number of months. There H
wag no violence. The thirty or a
forty men who took part in the t
movement were the leading citi- e
zens of Merryville. They acted °
quietly and orderly, but firmly, 2
and with a fixed determinination s
to put a stop to the conditions a
which have demoralized business
in that section for a number of *
months. Every piece of the tent I
and all the contents were care- I:
fully handled, and nota nickel's g
worth of damage done. When I
the stuff was gotten together it v
was billed to its owner at De Rid- s
der, where Hill and Lawrence a
are reported to have gone, A a
telephone message from Merry
ville to-night was to the effect (
that all was quiet, and that no ~
further trouble was expected. E
A special from DeRidder says: (
"Intense feeling exists h~ere over
the attitude of the citizens of '
Merryville in making certain )
union men leave the city. Over "
200 men have recently come here v
from Ludington, owing to the
closing of the big mill at that 2
place. It is said that some of 2
the members of the Brotherhood I
of Timber Workers have been "
trying to get a number of men to a
join a crowd to go to Merryville V
to resent the actiozn of the citi- 1
zens' committee." it

News of the Mississippi River
With fair and dry weather,
with the river falling nearly down
to Vicksburg and rapidly above,
and with a fall in the overflow
water at Beulah. an optimistic
view is now taken of the river
situation. No immediate addi
tional treshet is looked for and
no other break. At Beulah the
Yazoo and Mississippi Valley
Railroad is Preparing to close the
break as soon as the river is
within its banks again, and a new
levee may be ready there by the
time the late rise comes.
But becouse the situation has
imoroved is no reason why there
should be any cessation of activi;
ty or any delay in the work done.
Not a man should be taken from
the levees, but the work should
be rushed to completion and pro
tection, whether the river talls
now or not. We realize that
much of the recent trouble and
losses was due to delay, if not
neglect carelessness, to a policy
of procrastination, to not keeping
the work well ahead of the flood.
It is small excuse in such disas
ters to explain afterwards that
the high water was not expected
as early as it came. A second
mistake of this kind would be a
crime. When the presentfresh
et first started down the Ohio
but little attention was paid to it.
When the water rose in the Mis
sissippi higher than was expect
ed, and especially when the
Beulah break accured, there was
a rush for the levees, feverish
activity prevailed and a large
force of men was put at work.
They should be kept at work un
til. the levees are completed,
whatever the flood prospects
ahead may be.
