WANT DAM REMOVED.
Committees Representing Ascension and
Assumption Parishes Meet at Napo
leonville and Draft Strong
A rousing meeting of committees
representing Ascension and Assump
tion parishes was held at Napoleon
ville last Saturday afternoon for the
purpose of devising ways and means
to bring about the substitution of
locks for the present dam that shuts
off Bayou Lafourche from its natural
connection with the Mississippi river
at Donaldsonville. The delegates from
this parish were Messrs. R. N. Sims,
Charles Maurin, S. Goette, Dr. E. K.
Sims, Meyer Netter, G. A. Gondran,
M. Tobias and Frank K. Sims, while
Assumption was represented by C. C.
Barton, E. L. Monnot, R. C. Martin,
Sr., and R. J. Legardeur.
The meeting was called to order by
Mr. Legardeur and permanent organ
ization was effected by the election of
the following officers: R. N. Sims,
chairman; R. C. Martin, Sr., vice
chairman; E. D. Gianelloni, secretary.
The subjoined letter from James P.
Kock, president of the Belle Alliance
Co., Ltd., was read and received:
Mr. E. Sundbarry, President. Assumption Im
migration and Progresssive League, Na
Dear Sir-1 regret my inability to be present
at the meeting called for February 2 to protest
against delay by the proper authorities in the
fulfillment of their pledge to build locks at the
mouth of Bayou Lafourche.
I am, however, pleased to see that so much
interest is being shown in the matter, ai.d ask
to be respectfully allowed to call attention to
some facts connected therewith, for while the
etffort was made to make the people living on
Bayou Lafourche .believe that the closing of
the bayou would be beneficial to all, the fact is
it has worked hardships on many and the re
sults obtained by having the bayou dammed
are far from satisfactory.
In this age, when every state and every com
munity is seeking to improve waterways, why
should we be deprived of the use of what was
once considered the most used and most im
portant water-course of its size in the country?
To permanently close the bayou would be a
crime, for where can you find a water-course
more densely populated than Bayou Lafourche7
Late in the seventies the writer furnish d to
a meeting of the rivers and harbors committee
in Washington actual figures of the tonnage in
and out of Bayou Lafourche which were con
sidered so very extraordinarily large that sev
eral of the memb rs confessed that there was
no other natural stream of its width which
could boast of so much traffic.
To what now is all this diminished ! A couple
of oil boats and a few fiat boats and gasoline
propelled craft alone travel on its water, whose
tonnage in twelve months hardly amounts to
the tonnage of two weeks in former days. Want
of competition has enabled the railroads to
exact higher freights and the movement of
freight is slow and unsatisfactory, while we
have before us the possibility that fuel oil will
soon be unavailable, necessitating a return to
the use of coal, in which contingency when and
how will we obtain our supply of this com
modity when we have the railroads alone to
depen:d upon? There is no doubt that with the
car shortage now existing and the slow service
our factories will be many months in satisfying
The past manufacturing season ought to con
vince even the most skeptical that had traffic
on Bayou Lafourche been possible, all having
sugar and molasses to ship would have been
able to market their crops without being forced
to wait until the railroads were willing. or
able. to furnish the necessary empty cars.
After touching on the commercial disadvan
tages of having Bayou Lafourchedammed, I do
not want to close without referring to the re
port of the member of the board of state en
gineers who has had the matter of closing
Bayou Lafourche in charge, as expressed in his
recent report to the joint organization of the
Atchafalaya and Lafourche basin levee boards.
This report is remarkable to say the least.
No inspiration is found for improvement in the
continued unsatisfactory condition in which
the waters of Bayou Lafourche are found at
present, after two years of effort to better the
situation, and we are told that the recommend
ation made in 1905 will suit the conditions
as they exist today. To urge the construction
of a canal from Lake Verret to Bayou Lafourche
and flush out the bayou by removing from the
Mississippi river to Lake Verret the pumping
station, which is now almost a complete wreck,
and attempt with this during periods of low
water to pump from one body of water having
identically the same level and influenced in lo v
water by the same tidal effects, is unreason.
able, and can only be done at great expense. How
it can be expected that water will run up stream.
or go to replace denser water at the closed
snd of the bayou, is something in hydrostatics
not according to rule.
Certain it is that if the water from Lake
Verret is always free from salt water, which is
doubtful, no relief would be given that portion
of the bayou between the dam and the opening
of the canal.
The system now in practice is certainly wrong,
and reimef should be given the entire Lafonrche
valley by putting in locks as soon as- possible.
Whatever flushing is necessary should be done
from the headeof the bayou, and I think your
meeting should strongly protest against any
further delay in at least making e necessary
No one can expect the nation overnment
to help us. in view of the fact that when the
levee boards petitioned the secretary of war to
dam the bayou, permission was granted on
condition that the levee boards would, in a given
time, construct the locks themselves without
aid from the national government.
It is therefore up to us to demand a strict
compliance with all promises made. The only
question, now, is one of locks, and the sooner
they are constructed the quicker relief will
come to all.
I sincerely trust your meeting will have the
effect so much desired, and beg to remain,
Yours very truly,
JAMES P. KOCK.
The following resolutions, drafted
by a committee composed of Messrs.
Gondran, Martin, Monnot, Maurin
and Legardeur, were submitted to the
meeting and unanimously adopted:
Whereas, by Act No. 9 of the general assembly
of 1900, the commissioners of the Atchafalaya
and Lafourche levee districts were authorized
to place locks at the head of Bayou Lafourche
and to issue notes and expropriate lands and
exercise all other powers proper or useful or
expedient for that purpose; and
Whereas. under Act No. 84 of the general as
sembly of 1902, the said boards of commissioners
of the said two levee districts were authorized
to place a temporary dam at the head of Bayou
Lafourche pending the construction of locks,
as provided by Act No. 9 of 1900, and an act of
the fifty-seventh congress of the United States;
Whereas, said temporary dam has been placed
and is in actual existence at the head of said
Bayou Lafousche since 1903, and no action has
been as yet taken by the said two boards to
carry out the intention of the said Act No. 27
of lh98, Act No. 9 of 1900 and Act No. 84 of 1492
aforesaid, in the location and construction of
the said locks therein provided for; and
Whereas, under Act. No. 41 of the general as
sembly of 1906;the said boards of commissioners
of the said two levee districts were specially di
rected to carry ott the purposes mentioned in
the aforesaid acts referred to and to proceed to
take the proper and/needful steps to build and
construct the locks required of them under the
said acts of the general assembly of the state,
and to make provisions for the raising of the
necessary moneys for that purpose, as provided
in aforesaid; therefore, be it
Resolved, That we do hereby petition and
memorialize the governor of this state of Lou
isiana for the fulfillment of the laws aforesaid,
and that he call upon the Lafourche and Atcha
falaya levee boards to comply with the intent
and the letter of the law, to the end that our
rights should be preserved and that we may be
protected in the legal and equitable enjoyment
thereof ; be it further
Resolved, 'lhat a copy of these resolutions be
delivered to the governor of the state, to the
Atchafalaya and Lafourche levee boards and to
the progressive leagues of the towns of Donald
sonville, Napoleonville, Houms and Thibodaux.
On motion, duly seconded, the fol
lowing committee was appointed to
present these resolutions to Governor
Blanchard and the two levee boards:
R. N. Sims, chairman; Messrs, Mau
rin, Goette, Martin, Netter, Monnot,
Barton and Legardeur. The secretary
was instructed to communicate with the
presidents of the progressive leagues
of the towns of Houma and Thibodaux
and request them to each appoint a
member of this committee, which is to
meet on a date to be hereafter fixed by
its chairman and to remain a perma
nent committee to carry out the objects
and purposes of the meeting. The
committee is to submit its report to
the joint committee at a meeting to be
held at Donaldsonville on a date to be
selected by the chairman of the said
A motion offered by Mr. Legardeur
and seconded by Mr. Monnot, to the
effect that a vote of thanks be tendered
the Ascension delegation for their at
tendance at the meeting and intelligent
remarks on the subject under discus
sion, was unanimously adopted.
The meeting adjourned suject a
the call of the chairman.
The "Water-Walker" at Donaldseaville.
Capt. Charles W. Oldreve, of Boa
ton, who left Cincinnati January 1 to
walk the waters of the Ohio and Mis
sissippi rivers to New Orleans, a dis
tance of 1600 miles, on a wager of
$5000, reached Donaldsonville at 1:25
o'clock p. m. yesterday and after par
taking of dinner at a local restau
rant continued on his journey at 3
o'clock. Capt. Oldreve spent Thurs
day night at Whitecastle, leaving
there yesterday morning at 8:30, but
was delayed in reaching here by an
accident to one of his shoes, which
sprang a leak near Geismar. When
seen by a representive of The Chief,
Capt. Oldreve stated that the time al
lotted him for the journey was forty
days, which would have expired today
at noon, but that owing to an accident
at Louisville to the gasoline boat ac
companying him he had been given
an extra day, and he expressed him
self as being confident of arriving at
New Orleans on time. He has been
traveling rat the rate of 40 miles a day,
and says he is prevented from doing
better by the peculiar currents and
numerous eddies in this portion of the
The shoes or foot-boats in which
Capt. Oldreve is traveling are 4 feet
2 inches long by 10 inches square, and
are made of quarter-inch cedar boards,
with an air-tight compartment at each
end. They are fitted on the bottom
with canvas cups or pockets that close
when the foot is advanced and then
open, thereby giving some resistance
and preventing slipping when the other
foot is brought forward.
Capt. Oldreve is accompanied on the
trip by his wife, who rides in a skiff
alongside of him, Capt. J. W. Weath
erington, of Dallas, Texas, the backer
of Oldreve; Arthur Jones, of Boston,
representing Edward Williams, who is
wagering against Oldreve's success,
and A. M. Maiden, the engineer of the
boat on which the party is traveling.
Just about noon and previous to the
arrival of Capt. Oldreve the ferry
boat Washington tooted her whistle
several times and as this was the sig
nal expected when the "water-walker"
had been sighted, there was a rush
of people for the levee, some carrying
binoculars and others cameras, while
still others hurried into skiffs to gain a
closer view of the walker. Inthedistance
could be seen what looked to be a man,
closely followed by a skiff, and many
were the comments made as to his
methods of navigation, etc., etc. Soon
the figure and skiff were seen heading
for the wharf and the people flocked to
that point. On closer observation it
was discovered that the figure was not
a man at all, but a straw image, and
then the crowd realized that it had
been hoaxed by Capt. Harry White
man, who was seen sitting in the bow
of the skiff holding a line attached to
the figure and by which its manceuvers
had been manipulated. After reaching
the wharf the figure was cast adrift, so
it is probable the joke didn't end here.
The Dixie Dramatic Club, of Thibo
daux, presented "A Righted Wrong"
at the Gondran theater last Sunday
afternoon for the benefit of Hubert
Treille Chapter, U. D. C., and scored
an unqualified success, financially and
otherwise. A large audience witnessed
the performance and was apparently
well satisfied with the work of the va
rious members of the cast, as the ap
plause was frequent and enthusiastic.
The play was quite well staged and
moved along with a degree of smooth
ness and ease not usually associated
with amateur productions.
"The Way of the Maid," a rollick
ing musical comedy, was presented at
the Gondran theater last Sunday night
by local amateurs in the presence of a
large ann appreciative auaience, ann
repeated the success which character
ized its initial production here several
weeks ago. Each member of the cast
delineated his or her respective role
with marked ability and sang froidT,
and the variety and character of the
various musical numbers, as well as
the manner in which they were ren
dered, left nothing to be desired. The
performance was given for the benefit
of the Independent Order of Chosen
Friends, and it is gratifying to learn
that quite a neat little sum wasrealized.
The Harmony Concert Company will
hold the boards at the local playhouse
tomorrow night, and a decided treat
is in store for lovers of high-class
vocal and instrumental music. The
prices of admission for this attraction
have been fixed at 25, 35 and 50 cents,
and the advance sale of seats indicates
thatthe performance will be attended by
an unusually large and representative
Negro Killing at Hope Vills.
Andrew Williams, a negro, was shot
and killed in a drunken row on the
public road near Dixon& Dyer's store
at Hope Villa at about 7 o'clock Thurs
day night, Jan. 31, and Willie Alkens
and Jerry Holmes, two other negroes,
were arrested and are now in jail at
Baton Rouge charged with the crime.
There were. no eye-witnesses to the
tragedy, the first persons to have any
knowledge of the affair being the clerks
in the Dixon & Dyer store, who heard
a series of cries and several pistol
shots and, upon going to investigate,
found the body of Williams lying in
the road. Suspicion pointed to Aikens
and Holmes and they were promptly
taken into custody. Both men claim
the other did the shooting.
M. D. Finch, a young white sailor
who deserted from the battleship Lou
isiana while that vessel was lying in
the harbor of New Or-leans about two
weeks before Christmas, was arrested
here sbortly after noon yesterday by
Deputy Sheriff Lucien Acosta and is
presently occupying a cell in the local
jail. The officer in command of Jack
son Barracks has been advised of the
capture of Finch and is expected to
instruct the Ascension authorities what
disposition to make of the prisoner.
Finch states that he enlisted in the
United States navy .in 1901, and says
he was serving in the capacity of first
class fireman on the battleship Louisi
. ana at the time of his desertion.
New River Teachers s Sessleo.
An interesting meeting of the New
River branch of the parish teachers'
association was convened in the pub
lic school building at St. Amant at
10 o'clock a. m. last Saturday, the
2nd instant., with Miss Herminie Ni
caud, vice president, occupying the
chair, and a large attendance of
teachers. Quite a number of school
children and rgsidents of the commu
nity were also present. The meeting
was opened with an invocation by
Parish Superintendent D. B. Showal
ter, after which Miss Nicaud welcomed
the teachers in a happily-worded and
well-delivered little address. Roll
call was answered with quotations
from pedagogical works, and was fol
lowed by an animated discussion of
the subject of school libraries, with
reference to their value and purpose.
All of the teachers were called upon
for short talks concerning the benefits
derived from attending the summer
normal schools conducted throughout
the state last summer, as well as other
educational gatherings held during the
past year. Other topics of interest to
the teachers were discussed and the
program was interspersed with at
tractive vocal and instrumental selec
tions, Miss Paula A. Wuerpel
furnishing the necessary piano ac
companiments. The election of ofi
cers for the ensuing year resulted as
follows: Miss Herminie Nicaud, presi
dent; Miss Lea Blouin, vice president;
Miss Adele Farque, secretary; Prof.
A. J. Moreau, treasurer.
After adjournment an elegant lunch
