Jennings Citizens Want
OUR PEOPLE FOR
Public Ownership of Water
Works and Sewerage
It is a source of much pride to
the RECORD to see the large num
: ber of property owners in our
lively little city that are in favor
of a municipal ownership of
waterworks. The list of names
* published in yesterday's issue,
together with the additional num
ber attached to the list today,
shows conclusively that the
leading business men and princi
Spal taxpayers are in accord with
the opinion advanced by the
1: RECORD in a recent issue.
By glancing over the list of
names, the reader will see at a
glance that the vote stands at a
ratio of about 3 to one in favor
of municipal ownership and
against private ownership.
). While we fully believe that
those who oppose municipal own
ership are doing so from pure
motives, nevertheless we fully
believe that municipal ownership
r is the best, take it from any
standpoint you wish.
With private ownership, what
does the city gain in the long run?
Absolutely nothing. With muni
cipal ownership, we will bond the
town for a certain amount, pay it
in the course of time, and the
d profits derived, be they ever so
e small, goes into the town treas
t ury instead of the other fellow's
e That Jennings willhave a good
system of waterworks is a fore
e gone conclusion, judging by the
sentiment of the property own
ers, and the few who differ with
t us had better join the procession
a and follow the band wagon.
We append the following ex
Y tract, .taken from the Lake
Charles Press, which shows that
that wide-awake journal is in
t accord with our views:
"The question of a franchise
for a waterworks system is agi
c tating the citizens and city coun
cil of Jennings. The RECORD,
s very properly, is urging the es
tablishment of a plant by the
municipality, that the profits
from it may go into the city
- The editor of the RECORD con
tinued the canvass for expres
sions on the waterworks and
sewerage quesiion today, and
while this canvass is not com
plete, it certainly proves beyond
the shadow of doubt that the
taxpaying voters of Jennings
are in favor of the city owning a
system of waterworks as against
any other plan by a majority of
three to one, and in property
valuation ten to one.
The following is the result of

A Crowlev Investment.
Two years ago, Mr. Thomas
Short, of Douglas, Ill., purchas
ed 160 acres of land adjoining
the P. S. Lovell property, paying
for the same $8,000. The first
year's rice crop netted $1,700
and the crop this year netted
$2,000. Yesterday Mr. Douglas
sold the 160 acres for $100 per
acre, $16,000. Thus upon an in
vestment of $8,000 two years ago
he has realized a profitof $11,800,
nearly 150 per cent. Mr. Doug
las says that there are still just
as good opportunities for invest
ment in and about Jennings and
Crowley, and that, the time will
come when rice producing land
will bring from $150 to $200 per
acre, and at that price will be a
good investment and bring good
THE WORK OF
Severe Losses in Cleveland,
Boston and Other
Cleveland, Nov. 13.-A fire
which started in the shoestore of
N. O. Stone & Co., 46 and 48
Euclid avenue yesterday after
noon caused a loss of $75,000 to
that firm. A corset factory
owned by Miss Graham, employ
ing about twenty girls, was on
the fifth floor. They all made a
rush for the fire escapes and
ladders. A number of the girls
were rescued by firemen on lad
ders, while others jumped from
the fifth floor into a net held by
the firemen below. A Miss Gra
ham died from her injuries, and
other girls were severely hurt.
Boston, Nov. 13.--A little under
a quarter of a million dollars was
lost by an all-day fire which
started in the seven-story gran
ite building, corner Broad and
Franklin streets, occupied by
the Murphy Varnish company.
The fire proved unusually stub
born because of the nature of
the stock. Varnish tanks ex
ploded during the morning and
the blazing fluid ran in all direc
tions on the surface of the water.
The building was owned by
Mayor Hart and being an od
one, was insured for only $40,000.
St. Louis, Nov. 13.-According
to dispatches received here for
est fires are raging in .the vicin
ity of Red Bud and Alto Pass,
Ill., Poplar Bluff, Mo.,andSedge
wick, Ark. At Poplar Bluff,Mo.,
the sky is covered with dense
volumes of smoke and great
damage to property is feared.
-Not burnt out; we are still
in the same old stand at Renshaws
meat market, with a large list of
bargains in land; call and see us.
