ACI NO. 12, EXTRA SESSION OF 1:7=:
Strikc out the first part, of article 142
of tihe coastti tit: iont of ISd, which reads:
"A university shall be establishedl and
mlainttained in the city of New Orleanus:
It shall be comllposed of a law, a medical
anll a collegiatto lepartmell t, each with
appropriate flaculties. TheI General As
selnbly shall provide by law for its organi
ization and illailtenalce;" ad illnsrt:
''Tihe university shall be uinaitaino I. It
shall be composed ot a law, a medical and
an acadeLtieal department, and such otli

just received, alluding to the
Princess Alice calamity, says:
It is simply incredible that
out of some SO0 people who'
were suddenly submerged not
a dozen should have saved
their lives by swiumming, and it
is equally remarkable that of
those few none were actually
under the water a second. It
is more than evident that a
very large number of persons
able to swim succumnbd. The
,larne therefore rests not only
w.th the l'rinces- Alice and
the Bywell Castle, but with
those who have rendered the
waters of the crowded Tha
uIes absolutely deadly.
In plain English, and it is
iiipossible to be too positive
with the fact staring us in the
face, the six hundred and odd
souls were poisoned. The en<
tire sewera e of the tnetropo
hs is discharged into the rivert
at Barking creek in a raw
col:dition, converting thereby
the stream into a common
sewer. Now, the immediate
ellffect of plunging a human
being into sewerage is stupili"
c.ttion and asphyxis.
