MONROE. LA.. APRIL 1, 1982.
To-day is April fools' day, and the
bill collectors will be around-not a
strange coincIdence.
We hear of but little corn up in this
parish, but the past week a large area
of land not overflowed has been plowed.
The Masonic Hall has been rented
for the sessions of the United States
Courts. The sum to be paid Is 8900 per
And now, little children, beware of
the sturdy gander and the old goose
convoying the small goslings in and
out of the fence corners.
The postoflce will be removed about
the 15th to the office formerly occupied
by Col. John Ray as a law office, now
the City Library building.
The MeEnery Rifles have received
forty-five breech-loading rifles with bay
onets, and the members are industrious
lY practicing the manuel of arms and
going through the drill exercises.
The buffalo gnats are still worrying
horses and cattle, and the same pestif
erous Insect has caused the death of a
large number of hogs both on the river
and in the hills - something never
known before.
Mr. Enssminger informs us that he
has purchased 100 tons of ice which
will, be brought over from Delta sosoon
as the railroad is In running order.
Meanwhile, he is expecting a supply
from New Orleans.
We nlovite attention to the card of
Mr. J. C. Carson, architect and builder.
Mr. Carson has large experience In his
business, and will furnish Jrawings
and estimates for buildings and take
contracts for the same, either separately
or altogether.
The Jewish Passover, a feast com
memorative of the departure of the
Jews from Egypt, will begin on Mon
day and will extend to Tuesday, the
11th. Services will be held at Temple
Sinai Monday evening, to which the
public is cordially invited.
Mr. L. W. Surghnor, agent for the
distribution of government supplies at
this point, received by the Howard 18
barrels meal, 16 barrels flour and six
boxes bacon, which he is distributing
to sufferers from the overflow, giv
ing only to those of whose wants he is
fully assured of his own knowledge and
from information.
The Police Jury meets next Mon
day, at which meeting the election of
a President and other officers will take
place. The books and accounts of the
treasurer will be examined and much
other important business pertaining to
the close of the old fiscal year and the
beginning of a new one will receive
The City Cemetery is badly in need
of a new enclosure, or of some sub
stantial repairs of the old. A large
number of cattle have been roaming
through the cemetery of late, destroy
ing the shrubbery and trampling upon
the graves in lots unenclosed. If there
is not a committee of the City Council
charged specially with taking care of
the cemetery, there certainly should be.
Mr. J. C. Aby, representative of thd
Times-Democrat, was in town several
days the past week. Mr. Aby came tip
the Teneas and Macon to Delhi, taking
observations of the country overflowed
along those streams, and from Delhi
sent by telegraph an interesting account
of what le saw and heard. The report
occupied nearly two columns of the
Democrat, and three hours were con
snmed in its transmission. Mr. Aby
came from Delhi to Monroe along the
railroad, and from this point forwarded
a second lengthy dispatch. Ten years
ago John was a small boy paddling a
dug.out in the Ouacehita, or romping
along our streets. lIe is now a first
class newspaper writer.
The Wind at Will.
Sunday afternoon there was a severe
storm in the eastern portion of this par
ish. Building and fences on several
plantations were greatly damaged.
Judge Ludelling had two cabins blown
down, Mr. John Scarborough's gin
house was wrecked, Dr. Cosper's resl
dence and all the buildingson his place
were laidl in ruins, and on the McGuire
place, now the property of the Masonic
fraternity of this city and leased by
Capt. VW. T. Oakes, the damage has
been fixed at $1,000. On this place a
colored woman was badly wounded,
which is the only injury sustained In
person by any one of whom we have
heard. On the day following severe
storms are reported by telegraph at
Augueta and other places in Georgia.
Visit of Arav Officers. .
lickness among our office help pro.
vented us last week from mentioning
the visit to this point of Citpt. 8. C.
Vedder and Lieut. E. P. Knower, of.
cers of the United States army, detailed
to visit the overflowed sections of North
Louisiana and report upon the condi
tion of the country and people visited.
Capt. Vedder came to Monroe through
the overflowed country along the rall
road. In the trip he did not think be
passed over fifteen miles of land above
water, and on annny plantations hesaw
white caps like those of the sea and
currents that at times almost swept
away his boat. The situation, he said,
was deplorable, and impressed him as
something which, not being exagger
ated, had not been half described.
At this point, Capt. Vedder sent a
dispatch to the Seeretary of War giv
ing a description of what he had wit
nessed, and in which he gaveemphasis
to the great need of forage for stock
and work animals.
Lieut. Knower, detailed from the
artillery at Jackson barracks below
New Orleans, came up the river by
steamboat, distributing supplies as far
up as Logtown. His descriptions of the
the overflowed districts along the Ona
chita and Black rivers were not only
vivid, but were given in a manner that
showed the observer was attentive to
his duties and sympathized deeply with
the sufferers whose calamities he was
detailed to relieve.
These gentlemen were met here by
Miayor Endom and Mr. Kennedy, Pres.
ident of the Police Jury, and byMayor.
Endom were shown the levees above
and below Monroe and the overflow in
rear of town. By both of these officers
we were assured of their thorough ap
preeliation of the distress caused by the
overflow and of their intention to do
all they could to" have the real facts
properly presented to the authorities at
District Court.
Judge Richardson opened the Dis
trict Court Monday. The following
named jurors were drawn and sworn as
grand jurors :
A. Willis (appointed foreman), J. W.
Averett, M. W. Grisham, I. Furman
ski, G. P. Bernhardt, E. Winfrey, M.
Boly,A. Johnston, J. H. Toombs, J.
Finley, D. D. Wood, B. Harris, C. San
del, J. Fullam, S. Bird, L. F. McDon
District Attorney Hudson is in at
tendance, looking after the peace and
dignity of the State. Mr. HIudson in
forms us that the business of the Grand
Jury will be light and readily disposed
of, and that the informations show a
most satisfactory condition of criminal
affairs in the parish. The most serious
case reported is that of cutting the levee
at the Morrison place some three weeks
The case of Mrs. Gordon, tutrix, vs,
F. P. Stubbs, a suit Involving a claim
of over 020,000 against the defendant,
based upon transactions between the
late W. R. Gordon and Mr. Stubbs, in
the sale of the former's claims in the
settlement of the business of the North
Louisiana and Texas railroad, was taken
up Tuesday and the selection of aj ury
completed Wednesday. Judge Lade
ing and Jr. H. DInkgrave represent the
plalntiff, and Boatner & LIddell and
Judge Farmer are counsel for the de
fendant, Mr. Stubbs, who is present In
It is expected that Judge Brigham
will preside next week in place of Judge
Richardson in some eases in which the
latter is recused.
The number of persons in attendance
on the court is confined almost exclu
sively to those who have cases in court
or are summoned by legal process, and
the business of the court seems to pro
eeed with commendable dispatch.
Lovers of angling are anticipating
line sport as soon as the waters subside,
and probably with good reason, as the
seasons following overflows usually find
the streams well stocked with fish.
The professional fishermen, of whom
Eb. Anderson is the acknowledged
chief, are hauling in large numbers of
Catfish outof the river, he having taken
from his trot;lines, in a single ,run,"
eight cat weighing each from five to
forty pounds. The amateurs, who are
prlnclpajly darkles, are catching large
numbers of herln'g, ranging in length
from six to fifteen inches, but said to be
very bony andl not a good table fish un
less fried quite brown. But don't go
near the river, Mr. C. C. Lewis would
doubtless say, when fishing for herring,
since his narrow escape from drowning
last week by some one misplacing the
plank upon which he was standing.
Remembering tile scarcity of fish-balt
last summer, old fishermen will pro
vide in time a nursery for angling
worms, which may be easily done by
filling a box with rich earth, planting
the worme and keeping the box watered
in a shady place, with occasional sup
plies of meal mixed in the water.
River News.
The river has been falling sitce the
14th nit., when it eame to a stand at
two and a-half Inches below the high
water of 1874, and has since fallen
altogether 2 feet and 6 inches. All the
tributaries above are reported falling,
and apprehensions of another, rise at
this point are not seriously entertained.
The overflow east along the railroad
is falling at the rate of one inch in 24
hours, and at :the lower limits of this
parish it was reported rising slowly as
as late as Wednesday-no doubt from
Mississippi water. There Is still no
travel along the river road below Mon
roe further than Morrison's, but by go
ing through plantations men on horse
back have come to town who live some
18 miles south of Monroe. Trenton is no
longer troubled with water from the
river, buat the back water still covers
the rear of the town. In the Island

V., S. do P. Railroad.
Capt. Dabney, General Superintend.
ent of the Vicksburg, Shreveport &
Pacific railroad, was found in his office
yesterday morning busy answering tel
egrams and superintending estimates,
correspondence, etc., pertaining to the
duties of his position. Capt. Dabney
expressed himself as well satisfied with
the progress of the work on the west
ern division of the road--from Arcadia
to Shreveport,-and thought the con
struction from Monroe to Areadia (the
eastern division), will proceed from
this time on with greatly increased
vigor and promptness.
Capt. Dabney was not certain when
through trains could be resumed to
Delta. Much of the track has been
afloat, and several bridges must be
carefully Inspected, (some with the aid
of divers,) before regular trains can be
started. He thought that two weeks
at least must elapse after the overflow
subsides, before through trains can be
run to Delta. He was, of course, wholly
unprepared to say when the overflow
would leave the road; but we venture
to say that not lees than six weeks must
elape before trains will be running
through to Delta.
Mr. George W. Cram, contraetor for
the eonstruetion of tlerairoad west to
Aadla, was seen yesterday, and was
asked how malny sections had been sub
let, to which he replied that 81 miles,
or sections, of the 48 had been sub-let,
and that on 25 miles grading was going
on. There was, Mr. Cram said, an en
couraging prospect that the 17 miles
not yet sub-let will very soon be under
contract. Mr.Cram desires us to say
that he wants all the teams, laborers
and cross-tie makers he can get, and
that he offers good wages and steady
employment for an indefinite period.
Onle of the Pioneers.
Mr. James C. Drew, a citizen of this
parish when Ouachita extended east as
far as the Mlassisippi and west nearlys
to Red river, as he now is, was in town
Thursday for the first time in two
years, and paid the TEI.EOnAPII not
only a call, hut also his yearly subscrip
lion. We were glad to see our old
friend looking so well and so vigorous.
Though nearing his 82nd year, Mr.
Drew walks erect and with a steady,
quick step, and only last week he found
two bee trees. "1 always keep mov
ing," said the old gentleman, "and
hardly find time even to read the news
papers, except the TEn.EORAPII, which
Iread regularly." Ills eye-sight un
dimmed and his natural force unabated,
this worthy man of other days-days
that are an age-has host of friends
who will be glad to learn that he is
hale and hearty, and has, using his
own expressive phrase, "something to
eat and something too for my friends-."
