THE RICE COMBINE.
High Prices ave ('Caused It to Fall St
Through.
Notwithstanding that many options
were secured on rice canals and rice lt
mills in this state and in Louisiana by et
the syndicate which sought to control et
all the rice millis and irrigating canals L
in both states, guaranteeing to furnish
water to planters and to take all the S
piroduct at a;L tipulated price for five W
years, the deal is virtually otff. At S
least. it is stated by some of the rice si
imen who were favorable to the scheme GI
that nothing will be d(one in the tmat- ;t
ter this year. ci
The short crop and consetulent as- "
sured fair price for rice this ~season, t
it is stated, is the principal reason for he
the falling through of the scheme, and I)
those backing; it are of the opinion that tc
if conditions change next year. or if
prices are lower, there will he no W
trouble experienced in consummating; s
the deal. o
Other rice Imen, however, state that ct
there was never any backing to the tc
project, notwithstanding the state
nments that the H-lavemeyers were the
prime movers. These gentlemen state
that the scheme he was being promoted I
by a few parties who expected to se
cure options on all the rice plants in
New York. Some of those who re- b
fused tolgive options on their plants 0
gave this as a reason for their refusal. a
Whether or not the Havemeyers o
were ever back of the project is a mat- o
ter of conjecture. MIr. Hamilton, who tl
was known to have been an attorney ui
for the lHavemeyers at one time, was b
the main promoter. The fact that he n
was known to have had connections x
with the H-avemeyers at one time gave tl
rise to the rumor that they were back- e
Iing him. So far as he himself was u
concerned, he was silent concerning
whether or not they were in the deal i
with him.-Houston Post. e

Will Fight in Frisco.
San Francisco, Aug. 11.-James E.
Britt and Battling Nelson have signed
articles to fight 25 rounds before the
Colma Athletic Club at Union Cours
ing park, on September 9, for a purse
of $20,000 or 6i5 per cent. of the gross
receipts and a side bet, The winner is 1
to take all.
Both men are to weigh 133 pounds on
the morning of the contest. The agree
ment was arrived at after three hours
of wrangling.
Britt insisted upon a $20.000 purse or
` 65 per cent. of the receipts at his op
tion, but refused to concede the same
choice to Nelson, who is only to re
1 ceive the percentage if he wins. As
I the club refused to guarantee the cash
purse, Nelson's manager guaranteed
) to make up any deficiency between the
.gross receilpts and the $20,000 purse.
The referee will be chosen two weeks
before the contest.

POWER ATTACHED TO DRAWBRIDGE
1
Improved Machinery Placed
on New Westlake Bridge. It
Gus ]odemacher, superintendent of
bridge construction for this division I
of the Southern P'acific railway, hasI
arrived in Westlake for the purpose
of installing mnachinery on the bridge
of the company at that point by which
the bridge can be turned by an engine
instead of hby hand as has formerly
been done. At the present time four
men are required to turn the draw
when a boat wants to pass, but with
the new machinery it is said that the
employmnent of only two men will be
n;ecessary' I
The new motive power for th,. turn
I ing of the bridige is gasoline, and the
engine will be about a ten horsepower
and it is estimated that it will take
I about three weeks to finish the work of
cI hanging the bridge from a four man
power to a ten horsep)ower afl'air.

Monthly Business Meeting.
The members of the lpworth League
held their monthly business meeting
at the M. L. parsonage on
Friday evening of last week. After
the regular business a short literary
d program was given, which brought
forth some interesting and amusing
ideas regarding the great events of
history. A test was also made to see
who among the company were the
closest observers of advertisements.
The result proved that nearly all used
i their eyes and memory to good advan
. tage, three however, excelling, haying
all correct but one. Light refresh
ments were served during the evening
Sand all seemed to enjoy themlnselves
thoroughly. I3hfore departing for
home, one of our amatures in photog
raphy took a flash light impression of
the company. There were about tifty
present and it was a little past mid
Snight when the gathering broke up.

tative in the state leh.islature fru,,
C'aleasieu parish. was seen last night I
by a Press reporter and asked for a!
statemlient of iis position on the qlu' -
tion of voting a sp',ieial schlio l ta x.
iMr 'Toomenr said:
"I am nlad iou called upon rie be
cause I am so full of this qcuestion
that I am about to explode. I ha'v
been so, ]on ' watching the develop
gient of the school proposition that 1
am thoroughly disgusted with these
puerile excuses given by the big. prop
eity holders for not wanting a special
tax. \When it is all boiled down it re
solves itself into nothing more than
the desire to hold on to a little money
and let the children of this town go
uneducated.
"You cannot show Ine a town that
lays claim to being up-to-date outsiiCe
of Lake Charles that has no special
tax. If it has none, it cannot be a
)rogressive town. Simw Caleasieu
parish wards have voted speelcai
school taxes and here we are, a corpo
rate city and claim third rank in the
state, without any preparations for
running our schools beyond what the
city council may be able to do each
year. 1 say let us have at special tax
and furthermore let us have an etlicient
government of the city schools.
'"I have been asked if I would pre
sent a bill at the next legislature ask
ing that Lake Charles be eml)owered
to elect its own public school hoard
and am perfectly willing to do s(o.
Those fellows who are mightily free
r in growls about poor schools and are
terribly close about their purse strin'is I
f need not howl if the special tax funds
are handled by a committee from each
ward until the city is empowered to
elect a body to manage the funds.
"If ever we are to become acknowl
edged as the third city in the state, it
will certainly not be until we have
made some permanent appropriation
for our summer schools.
s "Let us get the council to order the
election, and then let us vote for the
tax. There is such a thing as public
opinion forcing our corporate inter
ests to vote for progress and let that
opinion be demonstrated at this elec
tion."-Lake Charles Press, 'Monday.
