Paso- Traf. Ma3 . 9: P. a T. A
Bayou Teche and Bayou
A prominent citizen of otartow'n
is in receiptaof a letter from J. B.
Alexander of Breaex Bridge, which
tetter expresses 'hatL, tleman's
interest in developing BayeuTeche
by coannecting ad opening BayoM
Courtableau into 3t. He is stue
ing for concerted and harmoniosm
action on that poist between Ibe
ria and St. Martin.
The Iberian has repeatedly st
Stempted to arouse interest on that
subject, and is a frm believer in
the scheme. We have time and
I again printed interviews had with
Congreseman Brosemard and Capt.
E. T. King, both of whom are
loaded with information and sta- -
-tistics on the subject.
K Congressman Brosseard and Ma
jor Quinn and his corps of engi
neers investigating the proposed
P improvements a few years ago, and
has been abiding a time to get the
matter into Congres. With Cal- ti
casien and Iberville in the old t,
third district, a good part of his 2
time and influence was used to
wards the bringing about the eom
pletion of governmental work al- °"
ready begun; but now that those a
1 two parishes are taken oat of the h
third district, Mr. Broussard will .
probably devote much time in the a
- future to the project.
We endorse Mr. Alexander's
idea and desire for concerted ac
tion. Iberia and St. Martin ought -
to unite to influence 8t. Landry
into coming into the fight. We
humbly suggest the formation of
a progressive league iw the town a
of St. Martinvitte for the perpose C
of arousing sentiment in favor of t4
the improvement; thee mass meet- t
ing, in Iberia and St. Martin, and
the drafting of strong petitions h
and memorials to be presented to
our national tegielature; and also
getting St. Landry, which is' now
in the seventeh district, to follow
tr When Major Qaian was here, a
feasible plan was endorsed. The
recommendations included a lock r
in the Teche at Keystone planta
tion; another at Breanux Bridget
E the opening of the Courtablrau
into the Teche; diverting the *w
ters of the lrst into the Teche
A and then the using of Lake Tase
(Spanish Lake) as a supply reser
voir for the low section between
iu, the locks.
The Iberian trusts that some
thing will be done. The matter
3 has been brought only lightly be
I fore Congress. "Now is the ae
ceepted time." The Iberian is for
the proposed improvement, and
offers the nse of its colamns anod
its time for the consummation. If
we want it we must get to works

Cary On Irrigation.
In a paper read before the IPa- tl
merd Institute in Jennings, 8. L.
Caty said the following in regard
to drouth conditiods and irriga- a
"It may soon be practicable to
have a central power plant in town
(steam, gas, electricity, hot siph or
other powerful agency) with feel 1
oil and most imlroved machinery
under control of a few to furnish
power to lift water from t large
system of deep wells to flood our
lands cheaply and perfectly and
relieve the menases of all this great I
care and worry. This is not ento
plan but entirely consistent with
the present order of things. Its
in the air. Its in the hope aad
will not be broken to the heart.
If a trust, its a beneficient one. It
increases production of the *best
and most valuable cereal plant on
earth. Two blades of rice where
one g'rew before would be a real
r benefaction to the race. a
"The long continued dronth will
- doubtless result in a very great
improYement in all our irrigation
methods and machinery. We
have broken all records for dronth
and.heat and what forp, less to
'perfect the.best andargqt irr
'tion system ever tt
map. No other seemenever had
the steam engine, the electricity,
the dynamite, in fact all the in
- ventions of the 19th century back
1, of It. So perfect will this be when
. complete that when we are ready
e to flood our rice, we wll send -to
S, our president and he will invite a
o few of the kings of the earth to
a be present when he presses the
r button to start the greatest irriga
tion system on earth into motion.
