A Strong Kick.
Lake Charles is making a loud
protest judging by the following
from the American:
"Lake Charles is entitled to free
delivery of mail within her lim
its, and it is a shame that her
people should be deprived of this
great business convenience mere
ly because of somebody's indiff
erence. It is absurd to say
that she shall not have it because
of a lack of sidewalks in the out
lying portions of the city. No
town entitled to the service has
ever before been cheated out of
it such flimsey pretext, and it is
not to be believed that the proper
representations made to the
right official will overturn such
an unjust decision. When rural
communities with a population of
less than a hundred per square
mile are served twice a day by
mounted carriers in the north, it
is not possible that the 8,000
people living within the four
square miles of Lake Charles
will be treated so outrageously,
when every requirement of the
department has been meet."

everything that can be had to
add to the comfort of the guests.

St. Louis, Mo. Nov. 18.--In the
devolopment of the World's Fair
there is every indication that it
will be ready on time, notwith
standing discussion to the con
trary during the last two days.
A long step forward has been
taken by the acquirement of the
grounds and buildings of Wash
ington University for the World's
Fair purposes. The administra
tion building is almost ready for
occupancy, and the two other
large university buildings to be
used for educational exhibits can
be made ready within a short
time. Director of Works Taylor
and Engigeer Markmann have
also made an important discov
ery, to the effect that no piling
nor blasting will be required for
building foundations. This fact
will save not only a vast amount
of money, but many weeks of
time. The construction of build
ings moy proceed at once upon
the letting of contracts. Through
out the World's Fair site there is
a firm clay foundation that will
sustain the heaviest weights with
Gov. Heard's Proclamation.
Baton Rouge, Nov 13.-That the
people of the Pelican State may
observe Thanksgiving Day prop
erly, Governor Heard has issued
the following proclamation:
"The people of Louisiana have I
much to be thankful for in the i
abundant yield of the crops; the
immunity from pestilence and 1
floods; the increasing interest in
the agricultural and mineral re
sources of our state: the healthy t
growth of commercial and indus
trial enterprises, and the unusual
activity and development of our
"Prosperity, peace, health and
happiness have been vouchsafed i
to us, and it is proper that thanks I
should be rendered to Almighty
God, the giver of all good and
perfect gifts, for these many
blessings which we have received
at his hands.
"Therefore In obedience to the
time honored custom instituted
by our fathers and continued a
from year to year with grow- f
ing reverence, I, William
Wright Heard, Governor of the 1
State of Louisiana, do designate ;
Thursday, the 2sth day of No- o
vember, 1901, as a (lday of general v
prayer and thanksgiving, and a
recommend that our people as- li
semble at their respective places ,
of worship and offer praise and
thanks to Him who has so abund
antly blessed us.
"Remember the words of theC
plrophet Nehemiam: 'This day
is holy unto the Lord your God;
mourn not nor weep; go your
way, eat the fat and drink the
sweet, and send portions unto
them for whom nothing is pre
pared; for this day is holy unto
our Lord; neither be- sorry, forV
the joy of the Lord is your 0
"In testimony whereof I have V
hereunto set my hand and caused
to be affixed the great seal of the a
State of Louisiana at Baton S
Rouge this 12th day of Novem- S
ber, in the year of our Lord one s
thousand nine hundredand one."' a

TO PROTECT ROME INTERESTS.
Country Mills May Refuse to Sell
New Orleans and New York.
The rice millers of Southwest
Louisiana have taken the first
step to fight the movement which
has been inaugerated by the New
York and New Orleans middle
, men to demoralize the country
markets. The following letter
from Henry L. Gucyean, of the
Mutual Rice Mill at U;ucydan, is
Editor Signal.-We have sent
the following telegram to eigh
teen "country rice mills":
"Will you sign an agreement
c with all country mills not to sell
rice to New Orleans nor New
York for thirty days?"
sAs you well know New Orleans

last two weeks, and have deminor

organized defensive at that. Why
not organize and assulie the otl
ensive and obtain full control of
the situation and keep it? We

The time is past when we need
distributing points for our pro
duct. We have every ifacility
for selling direct to the minor
markets anld conlsu llers.
I suggest that an agreement
be drawn up and si' ned by all
the "'country mills,'" whereby
they would bind themselves not
to sellany mill proiauct to New
Orleans nor New York for thirty
days, nor to ship to either p)laco
during that time, and that the
penalty for so doing be Live cents
(5ats) per l10 pounds to be paid
to each of the signers of the
agreetunent. We should act
promptly and pull to gether.
