NEW DEPOT FOR
COVINGTN SAID
TO BE NOW
IN SIGHT
Atty. F. -J. Heintz Secures
Ruling to Commence
In 120 Days.
TITLE TO GROUND
HAS BEEN SECURED
N. O. G. N. Said To Be
Willing To Build If
Funds Available.
F. J. Heintz, attorney for the As
sociation of Commerce, reports 'that
the Railroad Commission has ruled
that work must commence on the
new depot within 120 days. 'While
the N. O. G. N. is ostensibly under
the management of the company, it
is in reality dependenot upon the
Government for funds. We under
stand the company has always been
willing to go ahead with the 'build
ing, but it is not known what action
the Government will take in the
matter.
The justice of the demand for a
new depot is so apparent that the
interests of the company would make
its building a profitable investment.
Mr. Heintz has secured a title to
the land and the only thing in the
way would be the refusal to build
and the consequent litigation or pro
cedures. It is certain, however, we
cannot long be kept out of a new
depot--and we may get it soon, as
we understand there is no objection
by the company.

MAYOR'S COURT.
The Mayor's Court was crowded
Friday morning when the cases in
volved in a rumpus between white
boys 'f Covington land a crowd of
negroes in the negro settlement. It
was charged that the row occurred
when the white boys invaded that
section in an outo and drove by the
negro church. The testimony was
largely made up of Admissions and
statements made on both sides, the
report of officers and the testimony
of a white citizen who objected to
the noise and language used near
his residence. Some of the prison
ers plead guilty and will take the
case to the District Court. All who
were connected with the row were
fined $5.00.
Mayor 'Badon presided and he
gave the offenders a lecture that
should do some good in avoiding
trouble of this kind in the future.
Officers were instructed to break up
gathe: ings on street corners that
have become a habit in some sec
tions. Mayor Badon announced that
he intended to have peace and quiet
at nignt and to enforce the laws.
Juvenile offenders will be turned
over to the Juvenile Officer.
W. E. BLOSSMAN ANNOUNCES AS
CANDIDATE FOR CLEORK
OF COURT.
To the White Democratic Voters of
the Parish of St. Tammany:
As mast of you already know, I
am a candidate for the office of Clerk
of Court of this parish.
In accordance with the old cus
tom, I take this occasion to state
what my candidacy stands for, and
what I am going to try my level best
to do if I am elected to office.
F.or a number of years past I have
been in the Clerk's office, and in my
subordinate capacity I have had an
opportu:nity to note the needs of the
office.
With these needs in mind I want
to say to all that if I go into that
office my first aim shall be for AC
OUtRACY. Did any of you ever stop
and think what a trivial error in the
Clerk's office may ocoasion you in
the loss of yor rights or your prop
erty?
Next, I shall endeavor to at any
and all times render PERSONAL and
OOURTIEOUS SERVICE.
Ask anybody that ever did busi
ness with a Clerk's office anywhere if
it makes any difference whether the
man in authority is on the job. If I
am elected, any one doing business
with the Clerk's office will always
find me "on the Job."
I have long realized the necessity
for a thorough 'straightening out"
of the records of the Clerk's office.
People, I promise you, if you elect
me, the tirst thing i'll do will be to
hire, temporarily, the best court
house system expert in the State to
advise and direct me in installing a
first clase, thorough, modern system
in the Clerk's office, and after 'it is
installd it will not be my fault it it
is not l;ept going.
I have lived amongst you all my
life, and you all know me, so I don't
have to throw any bouquets at my
self. Incidentally, in view of the
high cost of living, I need the job.
However, 1 do not need it bad
enough to be subject to any inifluence
that would be detrimental to an ac
curate, just and fair administration
of the affairs of the office or that
would in any way subject it to the
dictation of any one.
I want to say to all, right here and
now, that I am nobody's c,.ndidate.
"Any reports you hear to the con
trary are rot, and are put out by
those who would like to see me get
licked to a frazzle.
Thanking you for your votes, and
RaPPPrelating any effort you may
make for my election, whether you
Select me or not, I am,
Your friend,
i .. W.E IBIO88sI]N.

REORGIANIZATION 'OF COVIING
TON BOARD OF HEALTH.
A' Sane But Aggressive Health Cam
paign Planned. Co-operation
of Citizens Wanted.
The Municipal Board of Health
was reorganized Monday with the
following officers: Dr. IB. B. War
ren, Health Officer; Dr. W. L. Stev
enson, Chairman of Board; A. V.
Smith, Secretary, and A. D. Schwartz
and J. E. Nilson, members. It was
determined to establish the board on
a working business basis, to have a
sign locating the office and meeting
days, to hold meetings on the sec
ond and fourth Thursdays, to invite
reports from citizens of unsanitary
conditions, to appoint an official in
spector whenever necessary, and to
do other matters incidental to the
conduct of an efficient health board.
The announcement by the chair
man, previous to his election, that
be would not accept hle oilice unless
efficiency and determination to make
Covington 100 per cent sanitary was
to be the key note of the board,
brought out the fact that every mem
ber stood solidly for a sane, yet
aggreassve, health campaign.
It has been publicly announced
'hat Shdell is more active in sanita
tion than Covington, and this being
considered a reflection upon the
town, with the probable result of
keeping away visitors and homeseek
ers, the co-operation of the U. 3.
Public Health Service has been
asked.
Mosquito breeding bples, centers
of probable typhoid infection, an un
sanitary meat market, drainage of
feces into the streets, and drinking
water below the standard were re
ported, and a committee appointed
to investigate these matters and
have them corrected as far as
possible.

E. G. DAVIS ANSWERS CRITICISM
SOF MEMORIAL.
Co:ington, La., July 23, '1919.
Editor St. Tammany Farmer:
'By a letter written to one of the
New Orleans papers, it appears that
Dr. W. L. Stevenson, of Covington,
is considerably agitated over the
fact that the people of St. Tammany
parish, through the Council of De
tense, are going to erect a granite
shaft in the courthouse yard as a
memorial to the sons of St. Tam
many who were in the military and
naval service of our country during
the recent war. It is rather unbe
coming of one of our citizens, after
the cortract for the shaft is given,
and a large part of the funds promis
ed, to attempt to create discord and
thereby make it much harder to get
sufficient funds for the purpose at
hand. Particularly is the criticism
unweleome(when it comes from one
who showed no interest in the wel
fare of our men when they most
needed encouragement and assist
once.
Now, a few words in defense of
the "cold marble chaft" as against a
BUTCHERS GIVE
REASONS WHY
NO DELIVERY
Editor St. Tammany Farmer:
Replying to letter in last issue con
cerning meat delivery.
To begin with, we think that the
writer of that article has misjudged
our way of carrying on business, in
stating that our present plans are
not modern. Our estimation of a
modernly conducted business, is one
which benefits the consumer and
dealer to the greatest extent. Such
are the plans we have m operation
at present.
The only advantage offered by the
delivery system is the probable sale
of a larger quantity ol meat. This
one advantage is countracted by so
many disadvantages which the pub
lic as well as the huthor have failed
to consider.
Of what advantage is it to the
dealer to sell a few more dollars of
meat, with the expenses of deliver
ing exceeding the profits on the
meats to be delivered.
With the abolishment of the de
livery system we butchers have in
creased our cash sales fifty per cent,
at the same time decreasing our
credit sales about the same per cent.
True it is that Athe growth of the
town is an edditibnal advantage to
the merchants of the town, but
'\here our method of not delivering
'mtat can effect the growth of the
tow'n is beyond us to see. The fami
ly, or families, that have left Cov
ington .or hesitated to come here on
account of the meat delivery, are
better off to the community away
from here.
It takes indusrious people to
make an industrious town, and that
is what we want.
Moreover, if the consumer prefers
to use cured meats on account of the
small inconvenience of going or.
sending to 'the market every morn
ing or evening, they deserve no bet
ter. The majority of the families
you have reference to about using
cured meats have some one in the
family that is physically able to go
to the market.
The author of the article l; have
reference to in the beginning of this
article, states that the people would
be better satisfied it the butchers de
livered. Surely' the author . must
have been in the habit of going to
market cr else a very small meat
consumer, for there are always
troubles and misunderstandings at
times between the housewives and
the butcher (exceptions to all rules).
With our present system the house
wife has no one to please but her
self. She comes or sends to the
market and sees what she is getting.
Another wild and far-fetched
statement is made when the author
states that "the butchers would in
crease their business with the same
shop force expenses and the extra
profits would be more than enough
to pay for the operation of a deliv
ery system." We wish that the au
thor would please submit his plans
to us for carrying on the delivery
wagon to meet the above statement.
In reply to the statement that the
bakers, dairymen and grocers could
offer objections to the delivery sys
tem, but do not, we have to say that
the op'rators of every line of busi
ness carry on their business to their
advantage, if they are business men,
regardless ,of what the other fellow
is doing.
And last, .should we decide to put
on the delivery system again, which
is not likely to occur, it would be
necessary for us to advance the price
of delivered meat at least five cents
per pound, in order to meet the ex
pensds of the delivery wagon.

bridge, a park, a grove of trees or
flower garden, as proposed by Dr.
Stevenson. Does any one suppose
that Slidell, Madisonville, Mande
ville, Abita Springs, and the country
wards, would contribute their money
for any one of these things to De
built in Covington? Could we rea
sonably expect the other towns,
where a large part of our money is
to come from, to help build a park
and put swings in it for the people
of Covington to. swing in? The me
morial we are going to erect is no
more for Covington than for gny
other part of the parish, and the
only reason Covington is to have it
is because the courthouse is here
and it is felt that a shaft erected in"
the coutrhouse yard will be accepted
by every mother, every father, every

ASSOCIATION OF COMMERCE
TAKE UP DELIVERY
OF MEAT.
The matter of meat delivery was
discussed at the meeting of the As
sociation of Commerce at its meet
ing Monday evcning. The general
sentiment of the meeting was, that
as the war is over and scarcity of
labor and economic causes that made
it advisable to cut out all service
that was not absolutely necessary no
longer exist, it was desirable that
Covington should have advantage of
such conveniences as are obtainable
in other towns. It was decided that
if the butchers refused to accede to
the wishes of patrons in this, matter,
the Association would co-operate
with the W. P. U. and the house
wives in measures that would give
them relief. It was thought that
the butchers would be willing to de
liver meat when they realized how
strong the sentiment of theit patrons
was in favor of this service. In caje
of failure, however, it is thought
arrangements could be made where
by meat could be secured from
other sources. The matter will
again be taken up at a joint meet
ing of the associations.

VICIOUS AND DANGEROUS LEGIS
LATION PROPOSED.
Death Knell To the Live Stock I;.
dustry of the Nation.
(Editorial from Gulf States Farmer!
Senaet Bills Nos. 2199 and 2202,
introduced in the Senate of the Unit
ed States by Senators Kendrick and
Kenyon, respectively, both of which
have been referred to the committee
on agriculture and forestry, purport
to stimulate the production, sale and
distribution of live stock and live
stock products.
These bills provide thbt every per
son desiring to engage or to con
tinue to engage in any of the fol
lowing businesses in interstate or
foreign commerce can only do so un
der a license obtained from the Sec
retary cf Agriculture:
1. Slau3btering live stock.
2. Prepa·~jng live stock products
for sale.
3. Marketingg live stock products.
4. Conduct or operate a stock
yard.
5. Live stock commission.
6. Giving or distributing live
stock market quotations or market
news.
7. Buying, selling or shipping
dairy products, poultry or poultry
products in excess of $500,00 a year.
The effect of the Kenyon Bill vests
in the Secretary of Agriculture the
powe rio grant or withnol'i a license
to any person or persons engaged in
the above-mentioned business at the
present time, and gives to him arbi
trary power to promulgate such rules
and regulations for the conduct of
their business as he may see fit.
He is empowered to prescribe the
method of handling the live stock,
to regulate prices, to prescribe the
method of doing business, and each
licensee is compelled to agree in ad
vance, at the time the license is
issued, to obey every regulation, past
and future, whether valid or not.
Under this law the business men
tioned would be under direct govern
ment operation.
The Bill requires that all persons
engage in slaughtering live stock,
or handling live stock products for
sale, dispose within two years of any
stock yards or interest in stock yards
owned by them, and practically et
poses stcck yards business to the
ways of inefficiency that will follow
government control and operation.
The Bill prevents the packers from
controlling the meat refrigerator
cars walch they now operate to in
sure the efficient delivery of their
product, but does not guarantee the
proper safeguards for service and
cars to take care of the meat supply
of the country.
It prevents live stock commission

gaged in slaughtering live stock from
engaging iPn otr balseq e or in

FUL ELK PIN.
A magnificent diamond Elk pin
was presented to Supt. E. T. Malloy
by the men on the monthly pay roll,
July 23, 1919. The gift was a
birthday present and a testimonial
of the uniform courtesy and kindly
consideration always shown them by
the recipient. The resident auditor,
F. C. Rippe, made the.presentation
in such a manner as to hit the nail
squarely on the head.
Mr. Geo. d'A. Pump, the resident
auditor of the Emergency Fleet Cor
poration at the Jahncke Shipyard
for several months, left for Brook
lyn, N. Y., his home, a few days ago.
Mr. Pump was a bright sunbeam that
always shone when monotony ap
peared and those who had the pleas
ure of his company will treasure
fond recollections of him in years
to come. Although hailing from
the Knickerbocker State, where the
warmth of Southern hospitality is
unknown, except among the fan
tastic rich, he lost no time going
the limit among his jolly associates.
Come South again, Mr. Pump, you
have made a hit.
Mr. T. A. Rippe succeeds Mr.
Pump as resident auditor for the
government at the Jahncke Ship
yard. lie has been serving the gov
ernment in this capacity for some
time and brings to the position the
same high degree of efficiency as
was possessed by his predecessor.
Capt. P. T. Burke, Southern Dis
trict Fire Marshal for the Emergency
Fleet Corporation, visited the yards
Saturday, July 19th, with his usual
pleasant smile. In company with
Resident Plant Guard Marshal 'Louis
Stockfietl, the yard was thoroughly
inspected and the fire apparatus,
etc., were found in excellent condi

Pontchatoula is a wonderful place.
When my train pulled in there I
looked out the window to see the
town but was unable to do so. A
cow was standing in front of it-I
mean the window, not the town. "
They raise a lot of strawberries in
Ponchatoula, and many, many years
ago in the parish that Pontcha is in
they would raise a lot of, h-l.
Pontchatoula was one of the first
towns in the state to go dry. I re
member it well-it hadn't rained for
a month.
Pontchatoula has one of the
stingiest men that I have ever met.
He is so stingy that he uses a wart
on the back of his neck for a collar
button. That man is so stingy he
married an armless woman to keep,
from buying the ring. He used to
stop the clock at night to keep from
wearing out the works. He would
look over his glasses to keep from
wearing them out. He would take
long steps when he walked to save
his shoes. When he sent his hired
men into the strawberry patch to
pick berries he would keep them
whistling all the time so they could
not eat any of the berries. " He took
his food in. capsules to save his
teeth. He lost a pocketbook with
twenty dollars in it; a fellow found
it and returned it to him a week
later and he charged the fellow in
terest on the money while he had it.
Smith and Cohen, pitcher and

Cohen owed Smith $5.00. Smith

when Smith was able to keep awake
long enough to argue, he said to
Cohen, "1'11 give you three days in
which to pay me." Cohen said,
"All right, I'll take the Fourth of
