My Dear Trezevant:
It is a matter of very sincere regret to
me that I am denied the pleasure of attening
the smoker this evening and that I cannot act
upon the reception committee, as you have
requested. I feel a great interest in the splen
did w- rk which you are doing and earnestly
Desired to be with you, that my presence might
attest the genuineness of my interest and show
that the one of your country cousins, at least,
wants to uphold you insofar as he may be able
to do in your efforts to promote the material
developmnent of our great southern metropolis
and of our great state. You are on the right
track. Just keep on-not 'letting well enough
alone,' but keeping politics out of the Progress
ive Union and showing the world what a great
state and what a great city we have down here,
and the, immense possibilities of them both.
And I predict-as all of us must who know
our advantages-a great future for your splen
did organisation; great and material progress
and devolopment for our state and city; and
the peace and happiness of our people which
invariably follows as the handmaiden to sue

attend you. With best regards, I am,

The Constitutional Amendments.
The twelve proposed amendments to
the Louisiana constitution which are
to be voted on at the coming election
will not be referred to on the official
ballot in the same numerical order
that they passed the general assembly
and were promulgated by the secre
tary of state. For the information of
voting readers of The Chief and the
avoidance of confusion and loss of
time in marking ballots at the polls,
we cite the amendments herewith in
the sequence of their appearance on
1. Authorizing the city of New Or
leans to issue $8,000,000 of bonds for
the purpose of completing its sewer
age, water and drainage systems, the
bonds to be based on the surplus de
rived from the special tax of two mills.
2. Providing for the payment of the
back salaries of public school teach
ers in New Orleans for the years 1885,
1886 and 1887, by giving authority to
the Board of Liquidation of the City
Debt to issue and sell sufficent bonds
to pay this debt.
3. Increasing the salary of the At
torney General from $3000 to $5000.
4. Providing for the election by
popular vote of the seven assessors
and tax collectors of New Orleans,
now appointed by the governor.
5. Authorizing one of the two judges
of the city criminal court of New Or
leans to sit for the other in case of
such vacancy, resignation, absence or
disability of the other judge.
6. Relative to drainage and sewer
7. Creating an additional district
judge for the first district, the parish
8. Reforming the judiciary system
by creating courts of appeal for the
9. Making the salaries of district
judges uniformally $3000 throughout
10.. Removing the limitations placed
on the appropriations for the Ruston
industrial Institute, which it is now
provided shall not exceed $15,000 per
11. Providing for male or female in
spectors of factories throughout the
12. Increasing the exemption from
taxation by providing that all mort
gages given for loans on real estate,
which real estate has already borne
its due proportion of taxation, as well
as mortgage notes in the hands of the
mortgagees or his or their transferees,
shall be exempt.
While The Chief has been disposed
to favor the adoption of all these pro
posed amendments from the standpoint
that they are either distinctly meritori
ous or innocuous, discussion of the
provisions of the twelfth proposition
discloses a defect that seems to warrant
a withdrawal of the indorsement pre
viously given the measure. The ostensi
ble purpose of the amendment is merely
to exempt from taxation mortgages on
real estate that has already borne its
fair share of taxation, and this was
no doubt the sole intent of the framer
of the bill and of the general assembly
that passed it. It transpires, however,
that church parsonages and rectories
have been omitted from the enumera
tion of property exempted from tax
ation, and if the amendment is adopted
churches and religious congregations
will be compelled to pay taxes on the
dwellings of their priests, ministers
and rabbis, from which no revenue is
=derived. A similar omission occurred
in thee framing of article 230 of the
constitution of 1898, but it was cured
in 1902 by the adoption of an amend
ment specially exempting parsonages
and rectories from taxation. The
pending amendment fails to take cog
nizance of the one adopted four years
ago, hence it is being actively opposed
by members of the various religious
denominations throughout the state.
No very serious objections to any
of the other eleven amendments have
been developed by the discussion car
ried on in the press of the state, and
the voter may cast his ballot for all
the measures without apprehension of
doing any particular harm to himself
or the public welfare. It is true that
several of the propositions are vir
tually identical with others that have
been heretofore submitted to the peo
pie and rejected, but this ought not
to constitute a valid objection to their
approval now. Each amendment is
entitled to be considered on its own
merits in the light of present condi
tions, and so judged all will doubtless
be found worthy of adoption except
Pay Your Poll Tax or Lose Your Vote.
The man who became 21 years of
age in or before 1904 and did not pay
his poll tax for 1901 and 1905 during
those years respectively, will not be
permitted to vote at the election to be
held on the 6th of next month. If he
became 21 during 1905 he was liable
for the poll tax of that year and can
not vote unless be paid it before the
end of 1905.
The man who is now 21 years or over
must pay this year's and next year's
poll taxes during these years or he
will not be qualified to vote at the next
general state and parochial election in
Therefore, pay your poll tax or lose
your vote. Lest you forget, pay it now.
Citizens over 60 years of age are not
required to pay pull taxes as a pre
requisite to voting.

Weather and Crop Notes.
The weather during the early part
of the present week was distinctly un
favorable and disagreeable, to say the
least. " Sunday was warm and showery,
and Monday was even warmer and
"showerier." No rain fell Tuesday
or Wednesday, but on both days the
sky was overcast with clouds and the
indications were anything but promis
ing. Thursday brought a return of
blue skies and more seasonable tem
peratures, and yesterday was as pretty
a day as one could wish for. Meteor

today, and if present conditions are

length of time there'll be no kick

The subjoined paragraphs arequoted
from this week's Ascension letter to
the Louisiana Planter:
"McCall & Legendre's McManor
factory will begin the grinding cam
paign on the 29th instant, and its big
neighbor, Evan Hall, will get under
way about the same time. In reply to
a question as to the condition of the
cane, Col. Richard McCall, who is
a part owner of McManor and super
intendent of Evan Hall, stated that it
is his opinion that the crop is about
as well matured as at-this time last
year, but that it is wofully short. Com
paratively no improvement has been
made during the past several weeks.
Judging from general appearance a
falling-off of at least twenty-five per
cent from last year's sugar results may
be looked for at Evan Hall, but Mc
Manor will probably fare somewhat
"St. Emma, the estate of the late
lamented Ernest H. Barton, will in
augurate t'- work of the grinding sea
son on the :.. a instant, and the fact that
such a late start is to be made tells the
tale of a short crop. Capt. Frank K.
Sims, who resides at St. Emma, thinks
tae cane is not quite so ripe now as it
was at the same tijne last year.
"The Belle Helene factory will make
a start between the 25th instant and
November 1, and Germania will begin
operations shortly after the 1st prox
imo. Mr. Geo. B. Reuss says it is
very hard to form an accurate opinion
as to the comparative degree of ma
tutity which the erowing crop has at
tained, but he thinks the output will
fall at least forty per cent below that
of last year. A Newell crusher has
been installed in the Belle Helene fac
tory by the Newell Company of New
York, and if found satisfactory will
be retained. This crusher takes the
place of the top roller on the front
mill, and its makers claim for it that
it will increase the capacity of the mill
about twenty-five per cent. The crusher
at Belle Helene, so far as could be as
certained, is practically the only new
machinery that has been installed in
any of the sugar factories of this par
ish during the closed season, nothing
but ordinary repairs having been
made. There is always this falling
off in improvements as a feature of
"The Wilbert Company's Myrtle
Grove factory in Iberville parish is to
get under way on the 23rd instant,
while E. & J. Kock's big Belle Alli
ance house is booked to start work on
the 29th. A number of skilled opera
tives from Ascension are always in
cluded in the forces of employees at
these factories during the period of
"The Leon Godchaux Company's
Raceland central factory, in Lafourche
parish, is to commence the cane-crush
ing campaign on or about the 22nd in
stant, which is an early start for this
season. Crops in the lower Lafourche
and Terrebonne region are much bet
ter than those of the upper Lafourche
valley or along the Mississippi river
coast, and Raceland's output is ex
pected to come considerably nearer the
1905 mark than any of the Ascension
or Assumption places can reasonably
hope to attain."

the material already on the ground we may
confidently expect the building to be ready for
