At a meeting largely attended, held at Scott, La., Nov. 11, 1911, to dis cuss ways and means to bring about the erection of a sugar refinery at, or near this point, it was decided, after a full discussion and after having or. ganized permanently as the "Scott Cuae Growers' Association," with Luke LeBlanc president, and L. L. Judice secretary, to offer a bonus of Io0,000. The following resolution was adopt ed: Whereas, Scott, Parish of Lafay. ette, La., is the 'logical point for the eroction of a sugar refinery to take care of the great increase of cane now being grown in the western per. tion of the sugar belt; the natural point to control a vast territory, not only on points of the Southern Paci fic, such as Duson, Rayne, Crowley, Estherwood, Mermentau, Crowley, Eunice where already preparations are being made to go into cane cul ture, but Scott is the center of a cane growing district, already developed, extending to Coulee Croche, in the northwest, Maurice and Milton in the south, Carencro in the northeast, and Lafayette south. Leel lands, open country, over which transportation fa cilities can be established and main tained, wherever necessary, at mini mum cost. These lands are a rich, sandy soil, producing more sugar to the ton, than possibly any other cane lands in the State, allowing- earlier grinding and a consequently longer and more profitable seasdh to a refin ery. The population; one of the most thickly settled of the State, mostly *Abt, lndiM#tis, w0ia WiikOi, O I :. fs in^h`bdidn e of labor right at hand, at all times.
