Big Delegations Meet There
From Mississippi and
Sentiment Strong to Carry
Out Real Intent of
the Law.
(By F. F. Wigginton.)
Slidell, La., May 22.-A most en
thusiastic meeting to consider ways
and means of building at once the
link of highway between Chef Men
tour to Rigolets and ILogtown, Miss.,
was held here today and representa
tives from every part of this section
and New Orleans were present and
deeply interested in the proceedings.
The net result of the meeting was
a thorough discussion of every phase
of the highway construction, a better
understanding all around of the situ
ation and the appointment of an ex
ecutive committee of five with full
authority to make any necessary ar
rangements with other organizations,
officials, highway commissions, etc.,
and to proceed to take action that
might tend to have work started on
the roadway without delay.
At the suggestion of Mr. H. Wes
ton, this committee is composed en
tirely of Slidell men, as the missing
link in this highway is through the
southern part of St. Tammany parish.
The committee is as follows: J. 1).
Brant. F. Salmen, E. F. Hailey, L. V.
Cooley, S. W. Provensal, and C. A.
Everitt, vice chairman.
By unamious action of the meet
ing, Dr. J. K. Griffith was elected
chairman and F. F. Wigginton sec
retary-treasurer. Mr. H. S. Weston
declined the chairmanship owing to
his being unfamiliar with the Louisi
ana laws and, also, being very active
on the Mississippi side. Mr. F. Sal
men declined as he contemplated be
ing away for a considerable length
of time. Messrs. W. I. Gore and J.
L. Fletterrich acted as assistant sec
retaries of the meeting, the full ac
tion of which will be reported later.
There were delegations in attend
ance from various towns in St. Tam
many iparish. Those from outside
the parish were: A. G. Thomas,
Commissioner Stone, W. F. Cooper,
New Orleans; Mayor John K. Ken
nedy, M. L. Michel, J. E. Breaux, Jr.,
Biloxi; J. F. Galloway, highway com
missioner Harrison county, Miss.; W.
D. Robinson, 1R. V. Abbley. J. E.
Spenrce Capt. S. L. McGlathery, Pass
Christian; Geo. Poole, D. C. Bowen,
Ex-Mayor Geo. M. Foote, Gulfport;
J. C. Mauffray, J. W. Varin, Mayor
R. W. Webb. R. T. Perkins, Bay St.

Mayor E. F. Tate, J. L. Magehee,
J. M. B. Spence, Picayune; R. L.
Nador, H. U. Stevenson, Nicholson;
R. J. :Ladner, Lake Shore, Miss.
The meeting was entirely harmoni
ous, good feeling being exhibited on
all sides, and delegates were loud in
their appreciation of the splendid en
tertainment provided for their bene
Commissioner Stone. representing
Mayor Behrman, assured the :,meeting
of the vital interest that New Orleans
had in the construction of this high
way and explained the nature of the
meeting had in. Mayor Behrman's
Iparlor on the 20th inst. 'mr. W. F.
Cooper, representing the State High
way Department (Duncan Buie), ad
vised of the amount of construction
which had already been completed,
the amount partly completed, and the
amount necessary to complete the
connection with the Mississippi good
roads, advising that the amount nec
essary to complete the highway to
the Mississippi line involved an ex
penditure of $617,000, which would
about use up all of the money in
the fund for the construction of the
two ihghways out of New Orleans,
and while the law provides that the
Chef Menteur road is the first to be
constructed it was the sense of this
meeting that we would not be selfish
in the matter and we have left all
arrangements in the hands of the
executive committee, who immediate
ly went into session at the conclusion
of the general meeting and it is ex
pected that we will have some very

* Friends: *
* I have been asked by the Com- *
* mander of the Salvation Army *
* to address a word to you in be- *
* half of this great organization. *
* This I am happy to do, for I *
* am sure that each one of my fel- *
* low citizens fully apperciate the *
* wonderful work that has been *
* done by these good men and weo- *
* men. We have as living wit- *
* nesses, every Soldier and Sailor *
* who has been in service at the *
* front and those who have been *
* in camp here at home. They all *
* sing the praises of the "Salva- *
* tion lasses." I am fully aware *
* of the many calls that have been *
* made upon the generous Ameri- *
* cans, but I beg of you to stop *
* and think just what these Sal- *
* vation Lasses have meant to our *
* boys and remember them sub- *
* stantially, remembering that *
* these people are indeed cheerful
* givers, and when the cry of want *
* is heard, they stop not to ask *
* of what creed or color; they are *
* ever ready to help. Now they *
* ask for help. Why should we *
* hesitate? *
* Let us help these people in *
* their splendid work for hu-*

shot through the body from side to
side. The shooting was general and
it was difficult to get direct testi

Henry Howard with shooting with in

The meeting of the rice growers
of St. Tammany and adjoining par
ishes for the purpose of considering
the erection of a rice mill here was
enthusiastic, even though every step
takes was a cautious one. Data
gathered shows that a yield of 28,000
oags may be harvested this year.
Ten bags per acre. is the yield,
where but little fertilizer is used.
there are tens of thousands of acres
of cut over land here at $10 per acre
easily irrigated and easily drained.
$750,000 will soon be spent on tne
highways. There are two railroads
and a boat line to Covington, all or
which will make the handling of
:ough rice to the mill and the ship
ping of the finished product not only
possible but reasonable in freight
ra:es. The acreage planted to rice
will continue to increase. The mill
could darw on other sections also.
The next meeting of the growers
will be the last day of May, when it
is expected to have some expert rice
mill men present to discuss the prop
osition with the growers and local
financiers. The meeting will bd at
1.0:30 a. m. at the courthouse.
Mr. W. E. Morriss was made chair
man of a committee to report within

Editor St. Tammany Farmer:
Doubtless many of your readers
have read with interest certain let
ters concerning the compulsory edu
cation law.
Sometimes we are amazed when we
see such splendid laws enacted for
the general benefit of- all mankind,
:nd are soon astounded to see with
what contempt they are looked upon
by the same people that these laws
were intended to have benefitted.
Justice is so sadly and so badly
perverted sometimes until we are re
minded of the proverbial Irishman
who, u'pon having been haled into
court for some offense, was soon dis
covered by his attorney to be much
excited, whereupon he was advised
not to fear that he would get justice.
Patrick replied that was what he
feared. Again we are reminded of
certain words of Holy Writ, namely,
"Why are laws- made but to be ob
served." We had hoped that when
the compulsory law was enacted In
this state it would surely solve the
school attendance problem and would
have had the good law, been enforced
and without favor toward any.
I am not an officer of the law
neither do I aspire to be, however,
it does not require the wisdom of
Soloman to see how futile it is to ex
pect progress and enlightenment
when means at hand are not utilized.
This is not written to -discredit or
to attract any one. Perhaps many
are to be blamid for the many evils,
particul-arly the miscarriage of jus
tice. Many are beginning to recog
nize the greatem need of certain kinds
of education and a higher civilization
for a new dispensation has dawned.
I am not among those who claim that
education alone will remedy all the
evils of our day, but am in favor of
enlightenment and progress along
every line of thought. Ignorance
and prejudice and often superstition
'block the way.
We trust that the good intentioned
people will co-operate with .Mr. Lyon
anrd others in authority to make the
educational law a success.
With kindest regards toward all
and malice toward -none, I am,

The many friends of Mr. Jos. Ro
tolo are delighted to know that he
has been appointed by the U. S.
Shipping Board to the- very re
sponsible position of Chief Engineer,
S. S. Pontchartrain. The purpose of
his appointment previous to her de
livery by builders is for observation.
Mr. Rotolo is another of Madison
ville's citizens who possesses the
necessary qualifications to do big
things. He has long plied 'his pro
fession on steam vessels navigating
the waters of 'Lake Pontchartrain
and tributaries with success. It
seems that among the citizenry of
Madisonville the government can
find a man for every emergency in
the way of maritime requirements.
Mr. Robt. O'Brien, employed at
the Jahncke Shipyard for more than
a year in a supervisory capacity, we
are sorry to announce is on the sick
list in New Orlean.s We hope that
he will soon recover his usual good
health and return to service with the
same vim, vigor and victory spirits
that is predominant in his make up.
Mr. O'Brien is one among, the many
Orleanians who camb here at the
outbreak of the war to help make
this yard 100 per cent efficient.
The Misses IMyrtle Gollehon, Bon
ie Mae Smith and Master Victor Oul
liber, of Madisonville, graduated
from the Covington High School with
very high averages of efficiency.
Their parents are old citizens of this
town and we heartily congratulate
them on the accomplishments of their
children. With the preparedness se
cured by close application to the
problems through which they have
so successfully passed, there should
be no doubt as' to their future suc
cess in life.
When the ex-Kaiser reads the

great victory the Allies won.

After reading Section 7, we know
why the devil said the Kaiser would

Sections 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14

to smithereens.
