Established in 1856. PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY Entered at the post office as Abbeville, La., as second class matter. Editor O'Bryan Dead. On Sunday evening Decein ber 10th at 8 o'clock our esteem ed friend and fellow worker in the journalistic world, Oliver Henry O'Bryan passed into that great beyond from whence i:o traveler has never yet returned. Mr. O'Bryan though confinjed to his room for some time, en dured patiently his conefinement to tle end. Tlhe deceased at the time of his death had only reached the noon of life, being only 43 years of age. His suc cess in the publication of the Herald, one of the live and up to-date publications of the touthwest, has won for himi, the high esteem of the united press of the State. While at the helm of the Herald, did he ever fore go the opportunity of advancing the common interest of this section. His paper was a power for good in the upbuilding of the morals of this section. His, is therefore an irreparable loss not only to this section, but through out the confines of the State. His entire life work was spent here among his own people, wherein his genius first saw the light of the purple dawn. The funeral service was hIild at the Catholic Church, atten(led by a host relatives and friends. 'fbe Idea joins the deep s nm pathy of the entire community iln behalf of the sorrowin. 'the Rice Irrigation People and Grand Chenire People could not reach an amicable adjustment of their difference in the Mlermen tau Dam contentions. llhe only thing the Cheire People would consent to was the complete re imoval of the Dam or the remov al of it ten miles up stream to a point where it is said by the rice people, would be of no val ue to them. The Rice Irrigation people have announced their de termination to re construct and maintain the dami at all hazzard. THE INTERCOASTAL . CANAL PUBLIC APPROVAL. The Interstate Inland Water way has been unqualifiedly pro nounced~feasible by United States engineers, and it has already been recognized to a certain ex tent by the Government The project has strong advocates in many parts of the country. At the first general convention in Victoria, there was a large num ber of deligates presentwith one single purpose unanimously in evidence, namely, that of secur ing the Intercoastal Canal. No questions were raised as to its ut iliiy; no doubt was then shown as to the splendid bienefit to 'Tex anl.Mand I.lcisiana and the very broad area of the United States by the opening of such a pcl fectly practical highway for our country's commerce. Many well known people were at that con vention; many important lines of business were represented from cities throughout the Coast Country. and public spirited t citizens, judges, country officials, Etate representatives and Natio- I nal Congressmen took active part in the plans and discussions Congressmen Iurgess. Garner and Brooks personally announc ed their intention to vigorously work for the intercoastal Canal, r Other Texas National representa 1 lives wrote letter favorable to j the project and regretend that they could not be personally pre: ent at that time to advocate it. te-nator Jol:n T. Morgan of Ala- n ;an'a; who is one of the best posttd men in the Unit d :tatt s on tl., -ul:jct of waiecrwav. to C(ihairman'. ijd:iaid: "1 have the iurv-se (f the a Intercvastal Canal in mind and al ani deeply interested in its sue cess." ''The ijm ortance and value of navigatin.im of the waterways of h, the Nor.th toward tme Gulf will to be enormously increased by being ea extemndedl throuhd the intercoas- re tal (anal eo as to ilcllude every' river east cf the Rio 3raude that I ewjties into (iulf." j all "I need not discuss the bene fits that will come to, the promi nent commercial marts along the coast from being convenient and connected to each other by an in terior canal." "I hope your work will be active and irresistible. Other associations, encourged by your success, which has such a noble example bf courage in the re demption of Galveston, will ex tend the Intercoastal Canal from New Orleans to Bay of Mobile and on to Pensacola." *'These conjectures are already charged to facts at several im portant points along the coast through work that has been (lone by the Government, individuals or corporation and by States. Such work will make the towns and cities that border the Gulf and the people of the far interior and those along the coast one in mutual interest and united strength." "I will assist in any proper measure to forward the enter prise." Other public men in the East are in favor of the waterway and there has been lately a good deal written about starting simi lar woak along the Atlantic Coast. Capt. Hugh H. Garden of New York City delivered an address on the subject which has been published in pamphlet from. Recently it was announced form Washington that a board of army engineers charged with making a new survey for an inland water way from Hampton Roads to Jacksonville, Fla., would endea vor to promote the work by ask ing for the sentiments of busi ness men and other interests and to such end would hold hearings at various points. Six thousand miles of inland navigation will be tributary to the Intercoastal Canal \West of the Mississippi River. As an example of the benefits of navigation, deep water at Galveston has in ten years saved to the people over $36.000,000 on three items of cotton, grain and flour alone, and on the thousands ofjcommodities which could be handled to prac tical advantage through the in land waterway, both in domestic and foreign commerce, that sav ing through such means will be immense.] A recent monograph entitled "Great Canals of the World," is sued from the Bureau of Stati stics of the Department of Com merce and Labor, showo there are thirty-seven canals in the United States used for commer cial purposes, of an aggregate of 3,443 miles. Among these are the Erie and New York State Canals. There are in and water ways throughout Great. Britain and Europe in most practical and extensive use today. Statistics show that over 3,500,000 tons of r. freight were carried upon canals of New York State during one season, the articles being pro ducts of forest, agricultural. manufacturing, merchandise and others. Shipments by Erie Canal , for season to Sept; i0, 1005, amounted to over 495,000 tons r of such' articles as lumber, coffee, I crockery, glassware, dried fruit, hay, hides, iron and steel, molas s ses, salt, liquors, sugar and mer I chandise. Of the latter there t were over 52,000,000 pounds, all I of which indicates the character and effect of water transporta tion. t 1Representative Pujo is working hard for the shortning of Bed r River.
