JAS. VON LOTTEN and G. D. SENTLEY publishers and Proprietors Entered In the postoffice at Donaldson* ville, La., as second-class mail matter. OFFICIAL JOURNAL: Parish of As. cension, City of Donaldsonville, As. cension Parish School Board. SATURDAY, JUNE 27, 1914. An admirable seribs of articles on agricultural topics is being contrib uted to the New Orleans Times Picayune by tleriman J. Seiferth, who filled the post of city editor of the old Picayune for more than twenty years. Mr. Selferth Is evidently making a close and thorough study of Louisiana's farml resources, rneth ods and prospects, and he points the way to improved systenms and better results with a master's hand. Miles Plantations to be Sold. Negotiations are under way for the purchase by eastern capitalists of the group of plantations of the Miles Company at Burnside, and it is ex pected the deal will be concluded within a few days. The considera tion involved, it is said, is $286,000. Only the land, embracing some 11, 000 acres, will be transferred at this figure; the understanding being that the transaction will not include ma chinery, live stock, implements or the like. This, however, is a part of the deal not yet closed. It is said the negotiations have progressed suffi ciently far to insure a successful termination, but no information could be obtained as to whether the act of sale has already been signed, or, if not, when the deed will be executed. Representatives of the eastern con cern visited Burnside Tuesday, ac companied by J. A. Gaudet, secretary treasurer of the Miles Company. Farm Journalists to Arrive July 11. The party of northern and western tarni journalists who are making a tour of Louisiana as the guests of the state are scheduled to arrive at Donaldsonville at 6 o'clock p. m. Sat uday, July 11, and to remain here until 2 o'clock the following after noon, when they will depart for New Orleans. The visitors will be ten dered a reception Saturday evening, and next day will be conveyed in autos through the agricultural sec tions contiguous to Donaldsonville. Every opportunity will be afforded them to see as much of the country as possible within the limited time at their disposal, and as the Chamber of Commerce will have charge of the arrangements for their entertainmlent it may be assumned that the unexcell ed natural advantages and resources of this section will be fully exhibited to them and that nothing will be overlooked to insure their comfort and enjoyment while they are our guests. An Efficient Local Lobbyist. R. S. Vickers, the wide-awake sec retary-manager of the South Louisi ana Fair Association, returned yes terday morning from -Baton Rouge, where he spent several days in the interest of the bill introduced by Representative Martin of St. James parish, making an appropriation of $250 to each parish holding an an nual fair or belonging to a regularly organized association that conducts such an exposition of the products and resources of a district or group of parishes. The measure as origin ally framed provided for the expend! ture of $25,000 for this purpose dur ing the ensuing two years, but the committee to whom the bill was re ferred has reduced this amount to $16,000. The act as amended is ex pected to have easy sailing, Mr. Vickers having been assured of its passage by many leading legislators. While in Baton Rouge Mr. Vickers put in a good word for the bill in troduced into the house by Represent ative Picard of Ascension and into the senate by Senator Himel of St. James, amending and re-enacting see tion two of Act No. 9 of 1900, so as to facilitate the Atchafalaya and Lafourche basin levee boards in floating the certificates they are au thorized to issue in ord( r to meet the expense of constructing locks at the head of Bayou Lafourche. This measure is one of much importance to the people of the entire Lafourche valley, and the representatives in the general assembly of the parishes to be benefited by the reopening of Bayou Lafourche should bestir them selves to insure its passage. Mr. Vickers participated in the boat ride tendered the members of the legislature and the party of farm journal editors Wednesday night by the Baton Rouge Chamber of Commerce, and had the pleasure of making the acquaintance of the visit ing journalists who will be the guests of this city on July 11 and 12. HELLO, CENTRAL! C. T. Norsworthy, formerly in charge of the Cumberland Telephone Company's local exchange at St. Francisville, has been appointed man ager of the Donaldsonville exchange and arrived here on the 19th inst. to assume the duties of the position. Some months ago a system was adopted by the Cumberland concern whereby Donaldsonville, Whitecastle and Plaquemine were incorporated in to one district and a single manager assigned to look after it, who made his headquarters in Plaquemine. Un- S der this regime the service here has been very Poor indeed, and as a re sult of agitation by the Chamber of Commerce the district officials of the telephone company decided to again a station a resident manager in Don- ii aldsonville. tl The attention of the new official tl is respectfully invited to the fact c] that there is general complaint in ti this community regarding the inferior, pI character of the service rendered D1 through the local exchange, and the suggestion is offered that steps to vt remedy the defects are manifestly! a due by the company to its local pa- Jc Irons. The operators are perhaps S( not to blame, and there is no dis- E. position in any quarter to make per- re sonal or captious complaints. The co trouble is doubtless due to the gen- ed eral inefficiency of the system of co supervision and management hereto-11: ore in vogue, and as this is recog- E. ized as one of the Cumberland's Ki nost important centers and ex- Hr ;hanges in this section of the state, an t should need no further prodding to tio ring about a prompt investigation mad reformation of present unsatis. thi actory conditions. lo THE LEGISLATIVE GRIND. The Louisiana general assembly has been putting in steady licks this w-,-k--tthe seventh of the current ses sion-and both houses have made fair ly good pr rogress in the attempt to knac.p up with the rising tide of bills .nd clear their respective calendars troum day to day. A few more mea sures were added to the grand total of approximately 750 that had been or- viously intreduced up to the end of the sixth week's work, and it is splparent that when the time of ad journment arrives less than two weeks hence there will be a far greater number of these bills in the -'junk heap" than among the state's new laws. The most important matter acted on in the house this week was the general appropriation bill, which went through by an almost unanimous vote, practically in the shape sub mitted by the appropriations commit tee. The concurrence of the senate with few changes is assured, and no difficulty is anticipated in securing a satisfactory compromise of any points of difference that may arise. hills to carry out the assessment and tax reforms advocated by the Hall administration were introduced in the house and reported by the :omnmittee having them in charge, but after brief debate it was agreed to recommit the measures for amend ment. The New Orleans Association of (Commnerce is warmly supporting the principlis involved in the pro pos-'d reforms, and the need for a change from the present antiquated Ind inequitable system of fixing the valuation of property and apportion ing state and local taxation is gener ally admitted. The Schwing bank guaranty bill was indefinitely postponed by the house of representatives and the Powell bill on the same subject was withdrawn, hence there will be no bank guaranty legislation at this ;ession. Bills covering the measures for the relief and promotion of the agricultur al interests of the state recommended by the public meeting held in New Orleans recently, have been intro duced and are expected to go through with little opposition. Representative Powell's bill to em power parishes to adopt the commis sion form of government passed the house by a large vote and will in all probability receive the senate's Oncturrence. The senate passed a bill increasing the fees of the river pilots from $1.50 to $1.75 per draft foot for piloting vessels to and fro between New Or leans and the Gulf of Mexico. Seator Byrnes' proposed amend metnt to article 210 of the consti tution, designed to permit women to serve on public boards, passed the senate by the requisite two-thirds vote. The senate killed the Johnson bill, which had passed the house, provid ing for a merger of the boards that control the state's seven institutions for higher education into one commis sion of five, to be, composed of the governor, state superintendent of pub lic education and three members with overlapping terms to be appointed by the governor. i% house has. "'sed the. Generel ly bill providing penalties of fine and imprisonment for fraudulent return of votes on constitutional amendments. The senate receded from its amend ments to the Generelly election bills, which accord official recognition on ly to political parties that poll as much as ten per cent of the popular vote, and the bills go to the governor for his signature. The effect of these measures will be to give the Progressives representation at the polls in future elections, and to de prive the Republican party of that privilege. %-i reu-not rigat was wagec in the house over the Lee-Norris fertilizer analysis and inspection bill, result ing in the indefinite postponement of the measure by a vote of 53 to 47. The Locke constitutional amend ment increasing the number of su preme court judges from five to sev en failed to get a two-thirds vote in the house and was returned to the calendar for another trial. A favorable committee report has been made on Senator Clinton's con stitutional amendment calling for di vided sessions of the general as sembly, one session of thirty days to be held for the introduction of bills, then a recess of several months, fol lowed by a second session of sixty days for action on the measures of fered at the first session. Gov. hall sent a special message to the general assembly on Wednesday, recommending the creation of a legis lative commission with authority to sit during the recess for the purpose of investigating all public institutions and boards. This kind of a measure was proposed as a substitute for various resolutions providing for such investigation by separate legislative committees, and the understanding that the administration would favor the substitute was probably a dom inant factor in securing the defeat of several of the resolutions in ques tion. Senator Smith of Richland has in troduced at constitutional amendment proposing to substitute a state com mission of eight members for the general assembly, one member to be elected from each congressional dis trict. The effect of this plan would be to put the state under the com mission form of government. It re luires a considerable effort of the magination to conjure up a mental )icture of the Louisiana general as ;embly voting to abolish itself. BIG START FOR THE BULL MOOSE. The Progressive party of Louisi- t na opened its 1914 campaign in an nupressive manner at New Orleans on t hle 1Sth of June, and demonstrated iat there was real foundation to the c laim that a good many hitherto ac- r ive and influential Democrats would t roclaim their allegiance to the new I olitical organization. ' At a day meeting held in the con- T, ention hall of the Grunewald Hotel 0 state committee was formed with t: ,hn M. Parker, chairman; Geo. W. e -ntell of Avoyelles, vice chairman; n J. Thilborger of New Orleans, sec- c 'tary, and Pearl Wight, national o ummitteeman. H. S. Armstrong act- h I as chairman of the organization ci immittee, while Judge Whit. P. T artin of Lafourche, H. S. Suthon, S A. Pharr, Esmond Phelps, E. N. earney, John D. <Walet, W. E. Dwell, G. Ross MurreIl, Wm. Polk B d H. A. Moise formed the resolu- ce ns committee. fc Stirring speeches w;ere made at is Is meeting by Judge Martin, a life- Ji g-, Demrorat; Mhe Fbntelieun ss Democratic mayor of New Iberia; Henry N. Pharr, Republican candidate for governor in 1908; Louis H. Burns, J. F. Wigginton, I)r. Thos. F. Frere of St. Mary, Wilson Peterman, sher iff of St. Mary, H. S. Armstrong and B. F. Fridge, the latter Progressive national committeeman for Missis sippi. A meeting at night filled the Ba ronne street Hippodrome to overflow ing, and much enthusiasm was aroused by speeches from Gen. W. J. Behan, who called the meeting to order and introduced the chairman; John M. Parker, who presided; E. S. Broussard of Iberia, a brother of Congressmana nd Senator-electj Brous sard; Harry W. Fitzpatrick, a promi nent young New Orleans business man; Thos. J. Labbe of St. Martin, formerly state senator; J. J. Robira of Jennings, John Marks of Napoleon ville, W. E. Howell of Thibodaux and E. A. Pharr of Iberia. Strong resolutions were adopted declaring the organization strictly a white man's party and proclaiming the principles and purposes of the Progressive party as putting it in square opposition to both the Demo cratic and Republican parties. The speeches and resolutions severely criticised and condemned the policy of the Wilson administration on the tariff, Mexican affairs, etc., and pledged the Progressives to a policy that would rehabilitate the shattered industries of Louisiana and the coun try at large and make the American citizen safe and his flag respected abroad. The most numerous accessions to the rehabilitated Progressive organi zation seem to come from the third congressional district, and the lead ers of the movement are claiming with the utmost confidence that a Progressive will be elected to con gress by a big majority from that dis trict in November. POULTRY SHOW AND LIVE STOCK CONFERENCE. The special attention of farmers, planters and the general community is invited to the poultry show and live stock conference to be held on Saturday and Monday, July 4 and 6, respectively, in connection with the Red Men celebration and "Fes tival of Nations" advertised to take place at Donaldsonville during the three days beginning next Saturday. A number of exhibits for the poultry show have been promised and the success of that affair is already assured, The list is still open, however, and other entries will be welcomed. An agricultural meeting will be held in Red Men Hall at 4:30 p. m. Saturday, at which addresses will be delivered by E. P. Gueymard, im migration agent of the Texas & Pa cific Railway Co., R. R. Claridge, ag ricultural commissioner of the same company, and other speakers. There should be a large attendance, as the matters to be presented and dis cussed will be of great interest to the community. The live stock conference, at 4:30 p. m. Monday, will be an especially valuable feature of the unique fes tival. The gathering on this occa sion will be addressed by Dr. W. H. Dalrymple, one of the most noted veterinarians in the United States, a man of international reputation in his profession, a fluent and pleas ing speaker, and an expert on all topics pertaining to live stock; E. L. Jordan, an authority on hogs, and W. H. Gates, a poultry expert, all members of the L. S. U. faculty and state experiment station staff, and leaders in their respective lines. The information they will impart will be very valuable to any breeder of live stock or poultry, and the op portunity to hear such noted ex perts should be availed of by every progressive farmer. r AN IMPORTANT TAX SUIT. Suit for injunction on behalf o Louis N. Boston, a Donaldsonvill property owner, was filed last Satui day to restrain the sheriff from sel ing petitioner's property for nor payment of the parish tax for 1913 e The object of the litigation is t, ° test the legality of the provision ii the city charter exempting resident S of Donaldsonville from the paymen of parish taxes, and with this poin in view the suit will be carried to th, supreme court for a ruling. Thi: provision of the charter has not bee, availed of by the property owners o the city, and at the last meeting o the commission council Mayor Lem ann called attention to this fact an( moved that the city attorney be au thorized to file a suit in the name o; some consenting delinquent taxpayer the cost of the action to be born( by the city. The motion was adopt ed and the proceeding instituted ir Mr. Boston's name is to be prosecut ed under this agreement. The question involved in the liti gation is of interest to a number of other towns and cities in Louisiana, and if the supreme court should de cide that the provision of our city charter granting the exemption from parochial taxes is unconstitutional, these municipalities will be asked to join Donaldsonville in carrying the matter before the general assembly with a view to having the necessary legislation enacted to carry the ex emption into effect. W. O. W. Monument Unveiled. Thirty-fibe members of Olice Camp No. 18, Woodmen of the World, went to Whitecastle Sunday to unveil a monument over the grave of J. Mau rice Melancon, a member of the lo cal camp, whose remains are in terred in the Catholic cemetery in that town. The ceremonies took place at 2 o'clock p. m., and were participated in by seventy-five meih bers of Cypress Queen Camp No. 443, of Whitecastle, in 'addition to the Donaldsonville Woodmen. Rev. A. deMaurizi, pastor of the White. castle Catholic church, blessed the monument, and poems appropr:ate to the occasion were recited by Misses Hilda Barbier and Essie Hernandez. The eulogy was delivered by Joseph N. Gisclard, past consul commander of Olive Camp, who paid a beautiful tribute to the memory of the depart ed sovereign. Ritualistic ceremo nies were carried out by the offi cers of Olive Camp, assisted by the officers of Cypress Queen Camp, headed by Albert Dupuy, consul. commander, and E. J. Hebert, clerk. The local Woodmen returned home Sunday night.

Don't wait for a special invitation; send some of your brag chickens to the show and com pete for the blue ribbons that will be awarded. Drainage Bonds Signed. Jonas Weill, of Lutcher, was a < visitor to Donaldsonville yesterday t and in his capacity as president of r the board of commissioners of the g Bayou Conway Drainage District af- r fixed his signature to 340 bonds to c be issued by that organization, aggre- r gating $90,000 in value. The issue is 7 divided into two series, one of'$70,- f 000 represented by 140 bonds of the g denomination of $500 each, secured a by an acreage tax, and another of ji $20,000 comprising 200 bonds of the s value of $100 each, secured by an ad '1 valorem tax. B. J. Vega, secretary- S treasurer of the Bayou Conway Drain.-a age District, also signed the bonds, i which were deposited in the People's Bank for safekeeping pending their b sale. ti ,o Attractive stationery is the only rid we print, Giv.~s your ore, t i Fast St. John Aggregation Taken Into t Camp by Locals for Second Time This Seasor-Napole'onville the Enemy Tomorrow. The Nine Stars of St. John went down in defeat before the speedy Donaldsonville team for the second time this season in a hotly-contest ed game at A-muz-u Park last Sun day afternoon, the count being 4 to 2. Songy, on the firing line for the visitors, was as wild as an English suffragette, and to his generosity in issuing dead-head transportation is directly attributable the loss of the game by the aggregation of twink lers, three of the four runs annexed by the- home gladiators having re sulted from passes. D'Alemberte, the local heaver, also lacked control, un corking a couple of wild pitches in the initial session which materially assisted the St. John boys in put ting a run across the pan. A flurry of rain at the outset of the pastime made the ball wret and slip pery, and *this accounts in large measure for the inability of the two riflemen to locate the plate during the first few frames. Both twirlers had the Indian sign on the opposing sticksmiths when it came to connect ing safely with the sphere, however, Songy holding the Donaldsonvillians to two measly swats, while D'Alem berte let the Stars down with a trio of bingles, one of which was a scratch tap down the third-base line. The visitors scored at the start I when Porta's third strike got away from Creoli, the runner stealing sec ond, advancing to third on a wild pitch and crossing the rubber on a hit by Paul, In the sixth F. Abadie sent a slow roller to Tearney, who threw wild to first, giving the runner an extra base. He scored from sec ond when Bouchereau muffed an easy fly to right. In the locals half of the second Simoneaux traveled to first on a pass, went to second when the catch er threw wild to nip hit off the bag, scurried to third as Bouchereau was thrown out at first on his slam to short, and scored on a wild pitch. Richard's "watchful waiting" earned him a free trip to the first station and he promptly pilfered the second sack, subsequently journeying to third on a wild pitch and completing the circuit on a squeeze play, Creoli wielding the willow. In the seventh D'Alemberte reached first via the base on balls route. Begue sent a roller to third which F. Abadie made a mess of, both runners being safe. LeBlanc lifted a fly to left, which was dropped, D'Alemberte and Begue scoring. Features of the game were two fast double plays by the locals in the third and fifth innings, Richard to Simoneaux to Richard, and Simo neaux to Richard. Simoneaux furth er covered himself with glory by a spectacular stop of a sizzler to short in the sixth session and a lightning fast throw to first, retiring the run ner.

Agent for the Reo and Ford The Dependable Cars Reo the Fifth (Summer Series 1914) Completely Equipped, Electric Starter Electric Lights, Etc. Now $1,175 f. o. b. Lansing, Mich. REO THE FIFTH attained its distinction by being a better built car than most makers think necessary. Care and caution are carried to extremes. All materials are bought under specifi cations, determined by more than two decades of experience. Gears are tested to stand 75,000 pounds per tpoth. Springs are tested which subjects them to thousands of bendings. Each driving part must stand the test 5cr 50 per cent over-ca pacity. The car has 15 roller bearings costing five times as much as common ball bearings. It has 190 forg'ngs, at twice the cost of steel castings, to wipe out the risk of flaw This car alone has the Reo one-rod control. All gear shift ing is done by one center rod set entirely out of the way. It is done by moving this rod only three inches in each of four di rections. REO THE FIFTH was selected by PATHFINDER FERGU SON on his trip from New York to California. The selection was made because it was considered the safest and most reliable car for any road, and it proved it. The car made this trip to the Pacific in SAFETY and RE TURNED looking as GOOD as when it started on its long jour ney abroad, clearly demonstrating that it is constructed of relia ble material.
