Holmes Serves Algiers
as It Does New Orleans.
A fast delivery service (trucks leave the store every day
at 2 o'clock) puts the Holmes store next door to every per
son living across the river from New Orleans.
Goods may be bought by mail or telephone. Orders re
ceived in the morning are sent out the same afternoon.
Shoppers from over the river, when they come to Holmes
are shown that splendid courtesy which has been the prime
factor in building this institution.
Whether you buy by mail, over the telephone or in per
son, Holmes welcomes you, and will serve.you well.

Two Ordinances Introduced Provide
For Commission , Form of Rule
Delegates Meeting Clear the
Decks Fur Action.
Baton Rouge, La.-Wlth organizra
ton perfected and a set of rules put
into effect, the Constitutional Conven.
tion has cleared its decks for the se
rious business for which it is called
into existence-that of writing a new
fundamental law for Louisiana.
Some of the big issues that con.
bront the delegates have begun to
show themselves. One of these is
parish goprnment reform. Two or8ai
nances on that subeJct were introduo
ed recently, one by Mr. Clinton of
Tensas and one by Mr. Hardtner of
LaSalle. Both ordinances provide for
commission government for parishes
and abolish police juries and school
boards. Mr. CUnton's ordinance fol
"All of the business affairs of the
seven parishes, including public
schools, shall be governed by a com
mission composed of three commis.
sloners, who shall be elected by the
duly qualiled electors of the partsh.
"The commissioners shall be known
as the commissioner of finance, the
ommissioser of public work and prop.
rt'y, andtae commslsioner of educa.
"They shall hold office for a term I
of four years sad shall receive for
their services such salary as may be
fixed by the General Assembly which
salary shall not be Increased or dimin
Ished durlng their term of office.
"The General Assembly shall, by p
propriate legislatisoo the quallfcar
tons, dutiee and compensation of the
commssiokems, wbkhi compensation
may be graded as between the various
perishes, sand shall apportion the cost
of maintaining the, commission be.
tween the perish and school board."
Mr. Hardtwer's ordinance provides:
"T'hat the management and conduct
of all parish affairs shall be aelegated
to three ommissioners, elected at
large from each parish, such as par
Ish, taxation, schools. roads, bridges,
drainage and assessments."
Introduction of these two ord
nances has preeipttated a ight at the
threshold of the convention. Mr.
Clinton and Mr. Hardtner have re
celved assrances of strong support
among the delegates and are tortyina
themselves for the attAck.

This pointed out by the convatwa
lion of the delegates lathe first week
of the convention. Everyone of them
has come to Baton Rouge with certain
fixed ideas of taxatlSda firmly lodged
in his or her mind.
Two Ideas appear paramount among
the delegates. One is that the rate
of taxation has reached Its limit. The
other is that more money is needed
for the government, both local and
state, to function properly.
The solution then lies in providlng
means for catching the t 41odgers
and also for the equalization of taxam
tion in order that each person or con
cern shall pay the fair share of taxes
due by them.
'"Uniformity and equality of taxa"
tion" is the theme uppermost in the
delegates' minds. This is taking the
form of a demandthat every anan pay
taxes in conformity with those paid by
his neighbor. Among the country
delegates there is a persistent stand
that the owner of idle cultivable land
shall be assessed the same value as
his hard working neighbor who keeps
his land in cultivation. With the city
* delegates there prevails the same
sentiment that a man who Is holding
property for speculative purposes and
not developing it in accord with
neighboring property shall be assess
ed on the same basis as his neigh'
The suggestion made by the spe
cial tax commission appointed by the
last Legislature to study tax reforms,
that an income tax be levied aroused
i wave of opposition. As the dele
gates arrived In Baton Rouge a week
ago for the opening of the constitu
tih1 they made no attempt to hide
their disapproval. The end of the
week, however, waq featured by a lee
sening of the opposition.
The tax commission's recommega
tions for an income tax received fur
ther back later when the Board of
I State Affairs in a report to Governor
Parker and the Constitutional Convena
tion urged the adoption of "an income
