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.

The Fire Department is in receipt
of a check for $20 from Mr. Felix

experiences occurring when the or
ganization was launched many years
ago. Plans will be discussed for
further securing the safety and pro
tection from the monster of fire for
our people.
There are about fifty active ment

SUND THE WOR1LD WITH
AMERICAN ED QCOSS.
In Italy.
Arr_ ing at one of the most critical stages of the war, when the Teutons
were forcing the Italian army back' to the Piave, the American Red Cross
rushed emergency relief from Paris and revived the drooping spirits of the
whole country. In addition to furnishing rations and comforts and medical
attention to the fighting men, the American Red Cross instituted 42 soup
kitchens, 36 children's hospitals, 10 children's dispensaries, 14 artificial limb
factories, five homes for refugee children, 10 rest stations for refugees.
This photograph shows a group of Italian refugee children being fed by
the American Red Cross at one of the numerous relief stations.

WHO WILL BE NEXT?
('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

(From N O. Item)
Congressman Jarel Y. 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
