VOL. 46 No. 8 A BOND ISSUE IS DISCUSSED AT MEETING OF COUNCIL Committee Appointed to Ihi vestigate and Report at Public Meeting. WATER WORKS AND SEWER SYSTEM Other Matters Disct.ssed By Citizens and the Council. At the meeting of the town council Tuesday evening an important mat ter discussed was the providing of funds for running the town affaias. High cost of supplies and decreased revenues through the discontinuance of liquor licenses, secured obligations and open accounts all make it im perative that something should be done. A resolution from the Asso ciation of Commerce recommended a bond issue for public improvements. and maintenance, a matter that has 'been under consideration by the Fi nance Committee but that has not reached concrete form, 'brought the matter up for consideration. Mr. E. G. Davis was present and joined mn the discussion. It was finally decid ed that the matter should be brought before the people at a public meet ing, and that in the meantime a com mittee composed of two bankers, two I lawyers and two business men shod ~Id be appointed to advise and to formu- t late plans to be submitted at that I meeting and generally discussed. The committee will report within one t month. Waterworks and sewerage a will probably 'be entertained as a part ' of the program. 1 The said committee is E. 0. Davis, 1 W. E. Morriss, T. M. Burns, F. J. Heintz, A. J. Planche and Lawernce ii M. Bourgeois. The question of the disposal of C garbage is another matter that was is taken up an informally discussed. s The town has not enough teams t: handle the situation and( the present system is expensive and not practical in its working. Garbage stands tur some time 'before teams can haul it 0 away, and sometimes the trash is L placed out af:er the team has just a passed. Citizens also claim that t labor can not be had to clean up e premises and cut away weeds. There ti was no solution of the problem. It will be looked into further. t. A re.;olution from the Association 7 of Commerce calling for a Clean-U p a Day was also discussed and Mayor u Badon will issue a proclamation and the women of Covington will be call- b ed upon to assist in making the day e: a success. Dr. Stevenson presented sever.l propositions to the council, amon; them being the purchase of the trast now being dumped in unsightly heaps. He also asked the appoint ment of Dr. Bulloch as a member of the Health Board, and suggested tha. a license be required of wood deal ers in Covington. He saii he would be willing to pay such a license him self. He also said that traveling shows should be made to clean up their refuse and leave the premises clean. Dr. Stevenson also said he would buy tile lumber of the old pavilion now stacked in 'Bogue Falaya Park for $10 per thousand and that he would build two small pavilions in the park and use the oalance of the lunmber himself. The matter was r. ferred to the Park Commission. Mr. Schonberg asked that the re port of Lights out be published in The Farmer, as many people were not cognizant of the fact that such a re port is required by the counpil. It was stated at the meeting that it might be advisable, according to a recommendation of the government inspector, to move the present wharf further down the river to avoid the filling in of sand that is constantly taking place. During the discussioa it was brought out that this might not be a good move. There was an appropriation for dredging and the money should be used for this pur pose. The new auto licenses for the town will be small and green enameled. ---0--- LIST OF DEAD LETTERS. Follo'wing is the list of dead let ters remaining in the Covington post ofice: Mrs. J. C.

('By Karl Treer) The first member of the Coving ton Association of Commerce to send in a check for his entire 1920 dues was Dr. W. J. Durel. He did this i week in advance of the New Year. WVho's next? There are 115 members on roll. Practically all are paid up for 19-19. Several new members have been add %d lately. Start 1920 right, by pooling your itrength with that of the only or ;anization devoted to the up'build ng of the community, and thereby ielp to do big things which only ;roups of men devoted to one :pur ose can do. It costs $12 a year to e a member. - Most commercial or ;anizations have dues of $25 per rear, or more. Sixteen of our mem )ers are paying $25 or $50 per year. n addition many of the $12, 25 and 150 members have contributed toc some special fund. Mr. E. J. Da nergue subscribed $65 to the Good toads Bureau, and Poitevent & 'avre Lbr. Co. donated $200 to vards remodeling the sweet potato torage house now in operation. It cannot but be convincing, even o the most pessimistic, that by har tessing a community's man-power nto a singel driving force, directed hrough unselfish central organiza ion for a common cause, a com sunity's accomplishments need be imited only to the degree of that ommunity's desires and ambitions. Just as the rays from the light ouse assist vessels safely into port n dark and stormy nights, so should be desires and efforts and aims cf ur Association of Commerce be ecused as to assist all movements Ldened with community interest t, ate berths. -0--- POU.l/JrRY BREEDERS ELECT OPFICERS.

Sanders, former governor of .ouis!ana, in A shattering, withering attack Satur day night at the Athenaeum (New Orleans) on the ring he knows so well, stripped the gilt off that shin ing ornament and showed the cheap alloy beneath. In clear and logical terms, Con gressman Sanders told the crowd in the big auditorium how a victory for Subtbe would mean a state constitu tion remade to the special measure ments of ,Martin Behrman. He point ed that an honest Stubbs meant patronage for ring and boss control throughout the state. "Is Behrman 25,000 times the man :.(I you are?" was the direct question hurled at every man in the audience at the Athenaeum. "That is the only issue,"' declared Mr. Sanders, who declared a moment later that in his long and intimate sequaiSt anceship with the City Machine he had never known it to show the pree ent temerity of Mayor Behrman's bold effort to name the governor of Louisiana. Anxicua to hear the man while fame as an orator has spread e.i the United States, the crowd began. r filtering into the Athena4iam at 7 p. m., an hour before Congressman Stm-+ .'i"i ders was scheduled to speak. Thirty minutes later auditors by the ecores crowded through front and rear ~s trances to the big auditorium. The hall was more than two-thirds full half an hour before the speech be gun.
