LOUISIANA'S OPPORTUNIUIY
IN DRAFTING A NEW
CONSTITUTION.
The people of Louisiana want
to develop their important re
sources of soil, of minerals, of
forests and of navigable water
ways, and the people of New Or
leans want to develop commerce
the "Valley way." So they have
called a constitutional convention
for the purpose of adopting a
modern code of fundamental law
with which to replace the present
lengthy and inelastic constitution
which has had to be patched up
and amended over and over
again during the last few years.
New Orleans is now construct
ing a complete system of coordi
native river-rail-ocean terminal
and warehouse facilities, an d
plans to open a great industrial
navigation canal through the city
to connect the Mississippi river
with an arm of the Gulf in the
rear. A million dollars is soon to
be spent on a modern vocational
trade scheol. A splendid system
of modern sewerage, drainage
and pure water supply has just
about been completed. The en
tire city is now being rat-proofed
as a permanent safeguard against
a recurrence of bubonic plague.
Reclamation of the fertile but
wet alluvial lands all around New
Orleans is making progress and
many orange groves and farms
now stand where marshes stood
before.
It is q u it e natural therefore
that the people of New Orleans
and Louisiana should not be con:
tent to longer live under a consti
tution which, because of a re
strictive character, checks their
development.
Louisiana possesses great natu
ral wealth and New Orleans holds
a strategic position commercially.
A sane, sound and liberal consti
tution under which to work and
develop would undoubtedly help
State and City in many ways.
Louisiana has in this constitu
tional convention a singular op
portunity to show how success
fully a democratic unit of govern
ment may deal effectively with
a rather remarkable situation.
Properly drafted, the new con
stitution, framed to meet the
needs of the new life opening be
iia might well serve
del for other common
COOD ROADS BOND ISSUE
DEFEATED.
The election which was held
last Tuesday resulted in the de
feat of the good roads propo
sition by a very small majority,
the property :valuation carrying
by a large majority.
We do not concede this to be
the will of the voters of this
parish, as there were quite
:a large number of spoiled ballots
at this election, and the majority
•of these votes were in favor of
the bond issue, showing that the
good roads should have carried.
However, the result of this elec
tion showed such a snmall ma
jority against that it is our hon
est belief when this proposition
is brought before the voters again
it will carry overwhelmingly, and
as for us that time cannot come
too soon, for if there is anything
thisparish needs worse than
.roads it is good roads. The
question arises: why haven't we
got them?

Warned of His Danger.
A farmer engaged Pat to mow a
small field of hay, and on giving him
a new scythe told him it was such a
good one that he need only put the
point of it in the hay and it would
cut by itself. Pat set off to his work
and about midday, when the farmer
came to see how Pat was getting on,
he found him sitting in a corner of
the field with one end of the scythe
in the hay. This so enraged the farm.
er that he went for Pat, who, on see
ing him, immediately shouted: "Keep
back, keep back; Ye don't know the
minute she'a going to start."

Arrest Deer In Saloon.
A wild deer was actually arrested
in Stamford, Conn., and for disorderly
conduct at that. Even worse for the
deer's reputation, it was taken in a
saloon.
There is nothing in the way of a
nature or other fake about this story.
Two deer were gamboling in a park
when the early morning traffic fright
ened them. One went back to the
woods. The other sped through the
streets until it espied ,he swinging
door of a saloon on which a large
glass of beer was painted.
The deer dashed into the saloon,
scared the bartender and broke bot
tied goods and furniture before it was
captured and bound. Then the police
department was called and a detective
sergeant took the deer in the jag
wagon to a woods on the edge of the
city and liberated it.
