NEW BANK PROSPERING
Present Officers and Directors Unan
The annual meeting of the stock
holders of the Commercial and Sav
ings Bank was held Tuesday after
noon at the banking-house in Rail
road avenue. By a unanimous vote
the present directors of the insti
tution were re-elected, namely: Al
bert Delery, Achilie I. Picard, Leon
Kessler, J. J. Lafargue and W. L.
Tearney. At a session of the direct
ors following the .tckholders' meet
ing, the capable officers who have so
efficiently and successfully directed
the active management of the bank's
affairs for the past year were unan
imously retained for another twelve
month term of service, as follows: Al
bert Delery, president and cashier;
A. I. Picard, vice president; Sam. M.
Richard, assistant cashier.
Reports submitted showed the af
fairs of the bank to be in splendid
condition. Established only since
February of last year, with a capital
of $30,000 and surplus of $3000, the
institution is starting the new year
in its own building, recently pur
chased at a cost of $5000. and with
deposits aggregating $128,029.38. In
view of the improved conditions now
existing throughout this section, as
compared with those prevailing when
the bank was organized, the stock
holders, friends and patrons of the
institution are confident the measure
of growth achieved in 1910 will be
surpassed in the busy year to come.
Castagnos Company to Build Factory.
Negotiations are pending whereby
the Castagnos Cane Loader Conpany
will purchase from the liquidator cd
the Bank of Donaldsonville the lot
at the corner of Railroad avenue and
Albert street, presently occupied by
the Donaldson Lumber Yard. The
cane loader concern proposes to erect
a factory on the rear portion of the I
property, which has a depth of some
thing like 200 feet, and the lumber
yard will continue to occupy its pres
ent location. Since the destruction
of its plant by fire a few years ago
the Castagnos Company has manu
factured its loaders at a local foun- I
dry, but the business of the concern
has grown to such an extent that
more extensive facilities for turning
out loaders had to be provided, and
the company has decided to build a
plant of its own. It is expected that
work on the structure will begin as
soon as the deal for the purchase of c
the site has been consummated.

the adjustment and settlement having

Gravel Roads Repair
The gravel roads in th e t dis
trict of the parish, extending from the
Iberville line to a point about e
miles below Donaldsonville on '"e
river, and from Donaldsonville to the
Assumption line on both sides of Ba
you Lafourche, have been thoroughly
repaired with washed gravel and are
now in splendid condition. The work
of extending the river road from its
present terminus to the St. James
line, a distance of 4.7 miles, is pro
gressing rapidly, and more than one
thousand feet of the highway has
been constructed. This stretch of
road is being surfaced with washed
gravel, and judging from the appear
ance and condition of the portion al
ready completed, will be one of the
finest pieces of roadway in the first
district. Weber & Peterson have the
contract for building the road, and
the work is being clone under the per
sonal supervision of Harry Weber.

A pleasant social event for the chil

of the Methodist church was a "pink t
social" at the home of J. C. Kirch

games refreshments were served in
the dining-room, which was attract
ively decorated in pink. A large pink
d 211 in the center of the table, and
sff' all dolls at each girl's plate to be
carried home as souvenirs, were dress
ed in pink, while the boys were each
given a pink bag of marbles and a
miniature ship. Mr. and Mrs. George
Avery added to the pleasure of the a
occasion by furnishing music, both in
strumental and vocal. t
At a Methodist church conference t
last Monday night, George Avery was
elected church lay leader for the year.
J. C. Kirchberg, Hudson Hunley, Mrs.

r- It has JMn decidedato hold a meet
s- ing at fard at 10 o'clock a. m. to

st retary E. P. Gueymard of the Jeffer
son Highway West Bank Association,
e in a letter announcing the meeting,
I. says: "We still feel that we are en
r; titled to the highway, and that the de
l. cision given at New Orleans by Man
1s ager Clarkson ought not to be the
- final determination of the contest.
i- Since this decision interested parties
). from different sections of the state
n have made representations to the of
ficials of the west bank association
y that a further fight should be carried
;t on, and that these various interests
e would combine to force recognition
i, of tle advantages of the west side.
e Every citizen of the west bank is ur
e gently invited to attend the meeting
.s and be prepared to express practi
cal ideas as to how this fight should
g be made. We are to going to have
e the highway markings if possible, but
e in any event we are going to so put
our house in order that we will reap
n the benefits of this highway whether
n we have the official markings or not."
Delegation om Marksville, Thi

ent at the mieting, and it is hoped
that the wei 1ank territory between
Port Allen and New Orleans will be
a largely represented, so that concert

aggressive campaign of road building
that will further increase the advan

The torpedo boat destroyers Ster

been in port here since Jan. 2, de
parted at noon last Saturday for Pla
qucmine. Officers and crews of the
vessels expressed keen appreciation
of the hospitality extended them by
the people of this city. Donaldson
viyle, on the other hand, derived much
pleasure from the visit of the war
craft and bade good-bye to its guests
with reluctance and genuine regret.
Never has this port been visited by a
better-behaved or more gentlemanly
set of man-o'-warsmen than those
comprising the crews of the Sterett,
Monaghan and Lamson. Seven re
cruits were enlisted here, namnely:
Duke Babin, Frank Spracino and
Thomas Giardino, Donaldsonville;
Earl Marchand and Paul Bourg, Dar
row; Edward Goetz, Napoleonville,
ana Eric Roger, Thibodaux. These
young men departed last Saturday
aboard the destroyers. A number of
others evinced a desire to enlist, and I
it is believed several more recruits
will be secured from this point.
