Improvements Made at the New
Lake End by the City Rail
road Company.
-The Hotel, Saloon, Avenue, Etc.
Ib Is with pleasure that more attention to
air suburban places of resort is noted. In
the whole history of our city there has been
but little expenditure, and less pains taken, in
Puidldag up and beautifylog places for the peo
gle's recreation until this year. Perhaps no city
of the same extent has fewer resorts where
the masme, Weary of the brick and mortar,
can spend a few hours in pure air and quiet
.etirement. Now, thanks to the energy of
the Spanish Fort and Lake Railroad Com
gany and the New Orleans City Railroad
. Company, our citizens will soon have com
pleted for them two attractive locations on
th4te shore, within a few minutes run of
Cby otalte, where all that industry and art
Sa d has been done to render these places
-0epplr ad enjoyable. On the long low level
tf tle Jake shore, where hitherto the
eaouotlonlst's eye was feasted on naught
but lWv n5g rushes and monumental
-iypres roots, there is now spring"
etg ip pastures of flowers and artistic
pieces of architecture that cannot but draw
Ibithel those who can take an afternoon from
the cares of business for relaxation. What
'as been done at Spanish Fort has already
Deh lptblished, and to furnish our readers with
wiat is to be done and is doing at the New
IdSke lad by the City Railroad Company,
Prea.lent Wlint was visited. His office tables
were covered with plans, maps, catalogues of
iron ornaments, resembling the engineer de
partment of an army corps. After the plans
had been selected, Mr. Wints explained them
at length. On the eastern side of the New
anal a double track will be extended from
where the trains now stop, as far out as
a9l ST. rOHN i rnlB 0noUs,
and here, for the accommodation of visitors,
there is now building a foot-bridge across the
eanal. This a ill lead to the revetment levee,
w "here the great improvements are being
pushed forward now. At about 100 feet from
.h canal, project log out into the lake from
the revetment, is a high platform, 250 feet
square, and in the northwest corner of this
platform the grand hotel will be situated.
-Thin elegant structure will be 102 by 145 feet,
t"wO atoai.s in height, its front towards the

water, and on either side a smaller gable

Wuns an eight-foot gallery, from which an ex

INDEPENDENT MILITARY.
For about a month there has been a move
entlon floot on the part of the independent
ki~tary oompanies of this city to unite into
Smilitary organization for the purpose of
m lngng about more harmony among the
different ltd.rpendent commands, to reduce
their expenses by selecting a common ar
.llory with suitable meeting and drill rooms,
ach company paying a pro rata to dtfray
tiexpenses. Several meetings of the offi
s wegre held at various times, and on last
r ya ev nut·a the following commands

CAVING LEVEES.
A Break at Pointe-a-la-Raohe-Work
on Bayou Lafourohe and
at Bharpe's.
As will be seen from the subjoined dispatch
a crevasse of alarming magnitude has oc
curred at Pointe-a-la-Hache, in Plaqueminee
parish:
POINTE-A-LA- HAHoE, April 17, 9 A. M.
Col. Hardee, Chief State Enaineer:
We have a crevasse here fifty feet long and
fifteen feet deep. Watering box washed away.
Please send sacks and lumber. Send mate
rial to Dr. Herbert's landing.
N. M. HERBsET, M. D.
Steps were immediately taken to have the
necessary material forwarded, and a promise
of co-operation made on the part of the plant
ere. The State Engineer's department will
furnish a man to supervise the work.
The news from Thibodaux yesterday went
to show that the break near that place In
Bayou Lafourche was larger than originally
reported, being 40 feet wide with a depth of
five feet. The depth, however, not being very
great, it is not apprehended that there will
be much difficulty in closing it. Work has
commenced in earnest and all the necessary
labor is at hand.
In this connection the following dispatch
was received:
THIBODAUtX, April 16, 1880.
L. A. Wilts, Governor:
Crevasse is at Collins's place, one mile be.
low Thibodaux, left bank of the bayou. It
is forty feet wide and five feet deep. Organ
izing forces and shipping matexial. I think
we will close it. SIDNEY,
It was learned at the Engineer's office yes
terday that the lower dam at Sharpe's cre
vasse was nearly completed and the upper
dam was half way. There is yet, however,
considerable work to be done, and final com
fletlon may be retarded by a lack of suffiolent
abor to-day. It is thought that a couple or
days will see the end, but the wise ones are
by no means emphatic in the opinion that the
work will be stable or enduring.

EDUCATIOqNAL MATTERS.
A number of gentlemen interested In the
matter of public education yesterday called
upon Superintendent Fay to ascertain his
views of the effect of the veto to the bill
passed by the Legislature. Mr. Fay had not
come to any conclusion respecting the matter,
but cursorily remarked that the only thing
seemingly left was to accept the old law and
administer its provisions where ltdid not con
flct with the constitution. He stated that
he would address a communication to the At
torney General asking for legal advice in the
premises, and that he would be governed
thereby.
REAFFIRMED.
A Question Affecting the License on
Private Markets.
About two months ago, in the suit of the
city of New Orleans against B. Barthe for
collection of a private market license, Judge
Monroe, in the Third District Court, delivered
a lengthy and exhaustive decision in favor of
defendant, holding that the license was un
constitutional.
Yesterday, in a case involving the same is
sues, entitled City of New Orleans vs. J. Du
barry, Judge Monroe reaffirmed his former
decision and dismissed the case.

PHILADELPHIA, April 7, 1880.
Mr. George Horter. New Orleans:
Dear Sir-From the papers sent me I do
not find my name among the subscribers to
the fund for sanitary purposes. You must
have forgotten that I wrote you never to for
get to contribute my mite toward the good
work your citizens are engaged in. I will
now respond to your draft for fifty dollars,
and, furthermore if your necessities require
it, draw again. The work your association
is engaged in excites much favorable com
ment here, and you cannot, being so far away,
realize the onfildence It Inspires that the good
health of New Orleans can be preserved
through their efforts. o
My health Is much Itl roved, but will not
be able to make you a , It this spring.
With my best wishes for you all, I remain
your affectionate uncle,

MEMORANDA SUDMITTED TO HON. H. C. BROWN,
0. E., CITY SURVEYOR.
NEw 0RLEANS, January 28, 1880.
A street gutter, to be healthy, should be In
a condition, one of two extremes, vlz: Abso
lutely dry or drenched with moving water,
as decomposition goes on most rapidly in
the presence of air, moisture and warmth
threecircumstances which in this climate the
partially wet gutter furnishes.
The best condition for the gutters running
from the river toward the swamp Is a con
tinued stream of water; and for gutters of
streets parallel with the river, absolute dry
ness.
To secure this condition of these last named
street gutters, a change of construction is
necessary. A moment's consideration will
show ttat the gutters on streets parallel with
the river, for the purpose of carrying off
rain-fall may be made more shallow than
those of streets perpendicular to the river.
The gutters of streets parallel to the river
receive and transmit only the water falling
upon half a blocIl, while the perpendicular
gutters receive the water of halt of the blocks
that border thereon, and all poured into them
from the streets parallel to the river.
The beds of the gutters at the centre of the
block of streets parallel to the river should
be elevated to at least four inches more than
at present, and sufficient descent be given to
secure a free movement of fluid to the intersec
tion of the gutters at the corner; at this
point the descent should be made sharply
four inches In a distance of, say, ten inches.
A gutter bed, laid in this manner, after be
ing washed or cleaned would, In dry weather,
lose all moisture in a short time, and be in an
excellent condition of cleanliness and in one
favorable to health.
This construction would avoid what now
exists at most street corners, where water is
running from the river towards the swamps,
a stagnant, unsightly, fetid, unhealthy strip
of water extending up and down on both
sides of the street to a distance varying from
ten to sixty feet,
The above Is an Indorsement of my report.
H. C. BnowN, City Burveyor.
I approve the above.
A. WROTNOWSKI, C. E.
The change of grade In street gutters par
allel to the river, as suggested in the forego
ing memoranda, has my approval as being
essential to a good sanitary condition of the
city. W. H. NEWTON, Civil Engineer.
Wherever practical the gutter bottoms
should be raised, as suggested In the memo
randa. Good sanitary effects will follow and
the excessive crown of paved streets reduced.
W. H. BELL, Civil Engineer.
We agree with Mr. Bell in his opinion, as
expressed in the above indorsement.
C. W. HOWELL,
Major of Engineers, U. 8. A.
H. C. COLLINS, Assistant Engineer.
I agree with Mr. Bell in his opinion, as above
above given. MosEs LANE, Civil Engineer.
These memoranda are not offered for consid
eration as novel, either In substance or form,
for they were in language nearly identical with
those submitted to the city government in
1871 by the Board of Health. The subject
has, however, lost none of its sanitary Im
portance. If it be deemed advisable by the
Sanitary Association to adopt these sugges
tions as, In their opinion, a measure of sani
tary reform, I recommend that a copy of
them, with the indorsements of these aistln
guished civil engineers, be forwarded to the
honorable city government, with the request
that the principles of construction of street
gutters therein recommended be favorably
adopted, and by ordinance or resolution made
hereafter obligatory upon all concerned In the
direction or execution f such work.

JOHN O. HENDER-ON. Secretary.
The committee on vaults submitted a
lengthy report, which was approved and
recommitted, with instructions to prepare an
ordinance in accordance with the suggestions
made.
The following, submitted by Mr. Glnder,
was unanimously adopted:
In view of the very grave consequences in
volved in such fasifcation of Information as
was contained in a late dispatch of the Asso
:orieeI ' r1tt11 Besodg-gs tbrI
the National Board of HI.ith should not
lightly pagd over the alleied isPtake of the
operator who was gullty 6o it.
Resolved, That the secretary of this ase~
elation be requested to make inquiry of the
National Board of Health if anything has
been done in the matter.
On motion of Mr. Fenner the chair was
authorized to appoint delegates to the Sani
tary Council of the Mississippi Valley, which
meets at St. Louis on the twenty-first In
stant.
The chair announced Dr. Holliday as one
of the delegates, and said he would make the
other appointments at an early day.
Under the head of miscellaneous business
a couple of water fllterers and a model of a
vault were submitted to the committee.
After a lengthy discussion on the subject
of sanitary inspection, which was closed by
the adoption of a resolution instructing the
chairman of the ward committees, Mr. Gin
der, to furnish the secretary with a list of
members of the association and others who
will accept commissions as inspectors, the
committee adjourned.
THE PACIFIC RAILROAD CASE.
Proceedings Stopped at the Instance
of Counsel for Plaintiff.
The motion of S. L. James for an Injunc
tion to restrain the New Orleans Pacific Rall
road from making any transfers which would
interfere with alleged contract rights of the
plaintiff in the suit, was fixed for argument
yesterday morning before Judge Billlngs,
sitting in the United Circuit Court, and on the
regular call for motions from members of the
bar, Mr. J. R. Beckwith, counsel for James,
addressing the court, said:
"In this cause I believe it my duty to say
that the statement made by me in this court
on Thursday were not in accordance with the
real facts. I was laboring under a mlsappre
henslon with regard to the action of the bolard
of directors of the company alluded to on that
day. I am very sorry, and, because I was
laboring under a misapprehension, I retract
the same and say I would not have made the
statement had I been myself in complete poe
session of the facts. In regard to the case it
self, since if it is proceeded with it will re
quire certain modifications of the bill. and
sinoe, also, I believe that in the pendling ne
gotiations the interests of my client will be
regarded and provided for, I consent to va
cating the order for a restraining order, and
ask for a withdrawal of the motion for an in
junction pe'nde nt lite."
The proceedings were thereupon dismissed.
A GRAND COTTON CARGO.
The "Champion Press" has been making a
magnificent showing since its erection,and in
anothar column is published an account of
the largest cotton cargo on record, the cotton
composing the same having passed through
the Champion and been reduced to its least
possible bulk. Capt. E. A. Cotton, of the
American ship Alexander, in a letter to
Messrs. John B. Latitte &t Co., the managers of
the Champion Press, gives a comparative
statement of the catrgoes which his ship has
carried out of this port since 1877, which
shows that this immense cargo of 5751 bales
overlaps her 1877 trip by 1702 bales and her
1879 trip by 1124 bales. This is really a grand
success and the enterprising managers of this
powerful press deserve much credit for the
Improvements they have pushed ahead, and
now but little, if any, greater perfection in
compressing can be desired.
FROG OPERA.
The event of the season will be the produc
tion, commencing April 28, at the Opera
House, of the sparkling extravaganza, called
"Frog Opera, with Pollywog Chorus." Those
who have witnessed the rehearsals say that
nothing so mirth-provoking in the amateur
line has ever been given in this city. The
fun is all of the most innocent character.
The costumes are extremely rich and elegant,
and the properties striking and original.
Judging by the extraordinary interest which
the "Frog Opera" has created among all
classes, there will be a great rush for tickets on
W edneeday morning,April 21, at Grunewald's,
when the sale of reserved seats opens.
ACADEMY OF MUSIC.
To-night the last performance of An Ara
bian Night will be given, and to-morrow
ovening Miss Agnes Herndon and Company
open and will remain during the week. The
programme of the engagement Is as follows:
Monday and Tuesday evenings and Wednes
day matinee, Lady Challoner; Wednesday
and Thursday evenings, David; or, a Sister's
Devotion; Friday evening, benefit of Miss
Herndon, and Saturday evening Bartley
Campbell's Fate.
A NEW COUNTERFEIT.
The experts of the United States Sub-Treas
ury in this city yesterday detected a well ex
ecuted counterfeit of the standard silver dol
lar. The piece was made of what appeared
to be brass, and was heavily plated with slil
ver. It was a fine copy of the original, but
weighed about one quarter less. It is the
first piece of the kind which has been dis
covered by the governmeht officers.
REMANDED FOR TRIAL.
W. W. Sanders, brought from Baton Rouge
to answer to the charge of fraudulentl/col
lecting pension money due Peter West, was
arraigned yesterday before United States
Commissioner Lane, and waiving examina
tion, was remanded to the Parish Prison in
default of $1000 bond to appear before the
United States Circuit Court.

Park to day. A fine programme of sports
has been arranged, and plenty of fun is
promised. Field sports commence at 3 o'clock
and races at 3:30.
ENJOYABLE PASTIMEs.-Of late years the rage
for things of the olden time has pervaded all
3'aQses and communities. The ladies, partlcu

to make their researches more thoroughly and
have, of course, unearthed the very pleasantest
occupations or snorts, of our ancestors. Poets

THE ROLLING CONCERT.
Almost a Panio at Grunewald Hall.
The soiree musicale given last evening by
Prof. M. H. Rolling and his pupils, assisted
by Mr. J. Meteye, was the charming enter
tainmtnent that the Immense audience attend
nlog it expected. It was exclusively a soiree
pianislique-lf we may be pardoned for coin
nlog the word-the only Instrument used being
the ;piano; a harmonium ( being, however,
1 used in the overture of William Tell.
In such oases we carefully avoid, as a gen
eneral thing, being invidious, and for obvious
reasons. We thererore submit the programme
with our compliments to the ladles and gen
tlemen who appeared in the concert for the
,xcellency of the music they dispensed.
We would have liked to speak particularly
of the composition of Mr. W. H. Rolling (the
son of the professor), the first bars of which
promised well for the young musician, but
during its execution it was interrupted several
times, and much confusion occurred,approach
Ing a panic, caused by a preelpatate with
drawal from Grunewald Hall of acouple who
labored under the apprehension that the
fire for which the alarm had sounded a few
minutes before was threatening their doml
cile. We hope to have better luck next time.

SIXTH DISTRICT HEALTH.
An Order from the Health Officer of
Carrollton.
OFFICE OF HEALTH OFFrCEB OF THE SIXTH
and 8eventh Districts.
115 Magazine streets and Carrollton
Court-.House Building. COrrollton.
I would respectfully urge and request the
residents and property owners of the Sixth
and Seventh districts of the city of New Or
leans to place their property and residences
in the best possible sanitary condition, and
in furtherance of the same their personal
supervision is suggested. The general clean
ing of premises, removal of debris and thor
ough whitewashing of fences in connection
with the proper disinfection of water closets,
will add much to prevent the possibility of
yellow fever, independent of the other prop
erly so-called filth diseases, attacking the
above named districts.
I again urge upon all good citizens the Im
perative necessity of immediate and prompt
compliance with the above requests.
All complaints in reference to nuisances
and the criminal disregard of sanitary laws
and ordinances will be promptly entertained
on entering complaints at the above referred
offices.
Very respectfully.
W. H. CARBON, M. D.,
Health Officer Sixth and Seventh Districts.
COTTON FUTURES.
The great success obtained in this city by
the inauguration of future cotton sales, so
clearly and ably expounded in the DEMOCRAT
In the letter of Secretary H. G. Hester, of the
Cotton Exchange, has created a necessity for
the establishment of firms giving particular
attention to this class of business. In another
column of this paper it will be seen that the
firm of M. N. Wisdom & Co., heretofore doing
a commission business in the cotton trade,
has been dissolved, and will start fresh in the
same line, with the valuable addition of Col.
Wm. A. Bell as a partner. These gentlemen
announce their intention to devote special at
tention to the execution of orders for the pur
chase or sale of cotton for future delivery in
this city or in New York, and in this line are,
as we consider, pioneers of a business which
is destined to be one of the most productive
In New Orleans.
BEATING A CAR-DRIVER.
He is Assailed and Badly Used Up by
the Colored Longshoremen.
Yesterday at 3 o'clock, as the negro long
shoremen, headed by P. B. 8. Plnchback and
George Geddes, as marshals, were passing
the corner of Peter and Conti streets Jake
Leitner, driver of car No. 92 of the Iayou
IRoad and Levee street line, tried to divide the
procession by driving his car iLto the crowd.
As he did so some of the longshoremen un
hitched his mule, while some of the others,
headed by one of the marshals, set upon him
and beat him in a most unmerciful manner.
The beaten and much-abused driver was re
moved to his residence on Bayou Road, where
he now lies in acrltical conditlon. The police
will make the proper affidavits to-day.
