-2 . BOGALUSA, LOUISIANA. THURSDAY, APRIL 13, 1916. Ib61 - MR, COOKE iND PRTY COMING l TO DECIDE UPON PAPER Ml practically\ Agr ( 11) o11 And()fficial .Action Will Be Taken Here Early Inl )May. At a meeting to be held in this t 1ty during the week of May 1st will Sdecided whether Bogalusa is to get bother big industry, and indica a are that the mill will be built nd in operation before the end of he present year. t Announcement is made today hat Walter P. Cooke. president of te Great Southern Lumber Compa ay, accompanied by a number of1 the directors, will arrive in Bogalu son Thursday, May 4th, when it willbe decided whether the paper ill will be built or not. Mayor Sullivan leaves one week fom today for Northern points where he goes to collect further in fotnation regarding the building of the mill. Already the Great South pr has spent thousands of dollars i investigating the feasibality of ecting a paper mill, as well as deciding upon how to utilize Dart dthe great waste at the mill. Therefore it is safe to predict that when the directors meet here the ist of next month they will decide derect the plant. While no figures are given out, fit thought though that the mill will cost in the neighborhood of a million dollars and give employment to at least200 men. The fact that the mill will be erected by the Great Southern means that no time will e lost in making the start and tuhing the work to an early com letion. The mill will be located U Columbia Street. With the lumber mill working the greatest number of men in the history of the organization, with the paper mill running day and night with the shops working a hWge force of men and with indica tios for a new paper mill, the the doubling of the capacity of the present mill and the voting of a bond issue of $200,000 and the vast extensions and improvements it begins to look like Bogalusa is going to have to force men to work over time and that the most prosperous year in the history of the city awaits us. There will be at least 100 families come to Bogalusa this year to make i their home if houses can he secured. Some one with a little money and alot of hustle can easily organize acompany to erect houses that could care for the people who want tocome to Bogalusa.

LOCALS MAKE PELICANS PLAY HEAL BASEBALL Condition of .Men Showsj Btogalusa to Have Best Team in City's History The Pelicans, pennant winners of the Southern League were given the best practice game of the season when they came to Bogalusa Sunday for a game with the locals. Had the Bogalusa boys had the team work and base running down as well as the champions, the result of the game might have been different. As it was, the score resulted in the visitors scoring six runs to the locals three. Benton, - Walker and Higgins were the battery for the Pelicans while Irven, Verret and Stapleton represented the Bogalusa team. Irvin proved to be superior in his work to the Pelican I pitchers and he succeeded in striking out a number of the professionals,. Verret pitched less than two innings and did good work after he settled down. Every member of the local team played a fine game. The stick work of the locals was better than that of the visitors. The feature play of the game was the play of Bennet Boyd who made a double by throwing from center field to first base. The work of Riley, of the Bogalusa team was exceptional- I ly fine, but several members of the team played equally as good ball. The work of the locals showed conclusively that Bogalusa fans can expect the team this year to be the best in the history of the city This is the second game they have played this season, and they played the game like seasoned men. Miss Byrd Arrives e Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Byrd, formerly 1 of this city but now located at Col t umbia are the proud parents of a daughter which arrived Wednesday, weighing nine pounds. Mother and r child doing well and MIr. Byrd feels happier than if he had been elected I Assessor. Engagements Announced The engagement of Ed Dreyfus, e of Dreyfus Co., and one of Bogalusa Sbest known business men, to Miss tCarrie Wolff, a charming young lady of Washington La., has been announced. The wedding will take place in the early summer. Into New Homes Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Archer have t moved into the house formerly oc t cupied by Mrs. Emma Friend. Mr. Ui and Mrs. Frank Rowell and Mr. and t Mrs. G. A. Townsend have moved 0into their new bungalows which i were completed a few days ago. r Fence On Fourth Street t The Great Southern Lumber s Company is building a fence along d Fourth Street, at the mill property. h This is being done so that all teams ei oing on the plant to haul away lumber for local use will have to go f through one gate so the lumber can ) be checked. S Columbians Coming The Columbians, a fast ball team from New Orleans will play here next Sunday. They expect to de . feat the locals in an easy manner, .ibut the Bogalusa fans know how the game will end. Mayor's Heart to Heart Talk to The Voters "I want every one in Bogalusa to know that W. H. Sullivan is lined up for Col. Pleasant. Now,.I want to give you a heart to heart talk. This city is made up of men 95 per cent of whom are Southerners. We keep a careful analysis of the men employed at other factories in the city of Bogalusa and 90 per cent of these are either citizens of Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi or our great state ot Louisiana, so that whenever it is said that Bogalusa is a Northern city, or a Yankee City, we certainly ought to resent it. • (I am Canadian and Irish too) (Laughter and applause.) Now, during this campaign it has gone around through certain sections of the state, that Bogalusa is a Yankee City and is going to fight any opposition to the progressive party and not support the Democratic ticket. Now I want you my friends, if you feel that I am sincere, and if you feel that I have done anything to deserve your good will and friendship in building up the city of Boga lusa, I want you to assist me, if you believe I am sincere in what I say, by assisting me to get out a large, strong vote for Col. Pleasant on election day." NECESSITY. OF PUBLIC DIPPING VATS FOR ALL SECTIONS OF THE PARISH The importance of tick eradica- s tion for Washington Parish is best 1 ;hown by some correspondence published below between the Lamp- t ton Realty Co., one of the greatest t :attle raisers of the south, and an a official at Baton Rouge. At the last meeting of the police jury, steps i were taken to build dipping vats in 1 the Parish. Magnolia, Miss., April 4th, 1916 Mr. W. H. Sullivan. Bogalusa, La. Dear Sir: In order to show you just how Washington Parish has become "Bottled up" in the handling of cat tie, we hand you herewith a letter from Dr. Flowers, of Baton Rouge, La., together with a copy of our reply. You will remember the six ty head of cattle (native cows) that we had for sale. These cows were sold by us to a party in East Car roll Parish, La., which parish the quarantine regulations have been removed. After taking the matter up with Dr. Flowers over the phone, we found that we could not ship these cattle from Washington Par ish to East Carroll, but Dr. Flowers stated that we could get the cattle into Pike or Walthall, which coun ties are in course of eradication that by following the instructions! as outlined in his letter we could then make shipment, but you can clearly see this would be practically prohibitive. The Poli-e Jury seems to be in terested in the building of vats and thought possibly you might get your local paper to publish something along the line of tick eradication, using the inclosed letters if you, wish. The state of Mississipni has en acted a law effective January 1st 1917, compelling every county in the state to eradicate the ticks so you see if Washington Parish does not get busy, the time will come when the only place we will be able to ship will be the butcher pen, and we know that you as well as our selves do not care to sell some of i the fine cattle we are raising in this way. Appreciating your interest, we beg to remain, Yours very truly, Robert B. Lampton. Magnolia, Miss., April 5th, 1916. E. Pegram Flowers, Sec'y and Ex-Officer, Baton Rouge, La, Dear Sir" We thank you for your letter ot the 3rd, and beg to say after talking to you over the phone, de cided it would be practically pro hibitive for us to ship cattle to East Carroll Parish, and we therefore sold a car of these cattle to go into t Tangipahoa Parish. La., and believe we will be able to sell the balance to go into Hinds county, Miss., there t being a quarantine station at Jack 1 SOD. We would like to know from you who the party was that was trying t 1to ship the bulls from Washington Parish. We believe Brockdale, Quite a good deal of interest has been created in Washington Parish, leading toward tick eradication, and we, would like very much for you to give us some assistance along this line if possible. e Yours very truly, Secretary. r Suppose you have noticed where Mississippi has passed state wide r tick eradication, effective, January 1st, 1917. Baton Rouge, La., April 3rd, 1916. e Mr. R. B. Lampton, Magnolia, Miss, Dear Sir: Referring to our telephone i communication of even date, rela tive to the shipment of cattle from Washington Parish, to East Carroll Parish, this state which latter sec tion has been released from quaran. tine or, in other words, tick free, beg to advise that the only proce dure. whereby this cattle may be feasibly shipped at this time, is as follows: followThese cattle could be dipped twice in Pike county, Miss., within a period of ten days and after last - dipping: accompanied by a federal d certificate from the inspector in ir charge of Pike county, and loaded g in a disenfected car. If these ar 1 rangements could he made this is u, permit to ship same without the necessity of a tuberculin test, inas i- much as such cattle originate in st the state of Louisiana. As there n is no systematic tick eradication ;o going on in Washington Parish, this s is the only arrangement that could e be made whereby these cattle could le be shipped to East Carroll. Id Very truly yours, r- E. Pegriam Flower, Af Sec'v and Ex-Officer. is. Speaking With Pleasant Washington Parish is doing her part for Col. Pleasant and besides the big vote he will receive, several ot our orators are assisting him. Senator Delos R. Johnson is speak :r, ing with Col.

MOST FUN OF YOUR LIFE at AT THE SIG MINSTRELS he The date is announced as Tues- T day evening April 25 for the great o minstrel show, known as "Hal G. Feels." which will be given at the Y. M. C. A. and it is needless to state that the event promises to attract the largest crowd for such an event in the history of Bogalusa. H. L. Porter has been out in the Cut Over Pine lands for the past two weeks working on his part and at a dress rehearsel held last night, s he proved to be as good a black a face comedian as a land salesman- i and that's going some. n H. E. Hoppen will be one of the v end men. He has a joke ready to ii "crack" on most every man in P e Bogalusa. Not old ones either. Real fresh ones that will cause i d everyone, except the man it is told ii on, to get a laugh a minute. Then o SC. O. Johnson is going to tell a few e good ones after Mr. Hoppen runs a short. Mr. Johnson is not giving I Sany of his jokes out, but he prom- I ises that he will have some surprises c in store and expects to show Mr. t Hoppen up as a good "joke cracker" c even if the popular secretary is r an old hand at the business. r e There will be old time melodies C and popular songs, a vaudeville act I s that will cause Martin Beck, of the f d Orpheum to run up here and take a d "once over." The olio will be I entitled "Political Memories" and the boys absolutely deny that it will be any farce on the coming elec-I tion, and that no local politicans will be impersonated. It is hinted however, that this is the wrong in formation as it has leaked out that the characters in the act are all r well known local politicans. Any s way you will never laugh as much al in your life as you do at this mins n. trel. Announcement of the seat sale - will be published in next weeks k Enterprise. e On Sunday evening J. W. Ezell was married to Miss Mary Case by Judge C. E. Ott. Both are well of(known residents of Bogalusa and is I their many friends will be pleased er to know that they will make their I future home here. .lust As Soon As The Ques tions Can Be Discussed And Given Plenty Of Publicity. Now that the question of Sunday baseball has been settled, the election of Col Pleasant practically agreed upon, the question of enforc ing ordinance number 37 or ammend ing it so as to Permit picture shows run on Sunday and the closing of stores will be disposed of next. Following the action of the coun cil to enforce the ordinance the Magic City theater was closed on Sunday and likewise a number of stores and other places of business which heretofore have operated part of the Sabbath. Part of the merchants and citizens are divided I on closing of all stores on Sunday but over 800 signed a petition to the Mavor and the Council asking for a Mass Meeting to be held when the question of permitting the motion picture houses to operate would be discussed. It has been decided to hold the Mass meeting at the Y. M. C. A., in the near future when every citizen of Bogalusa will be invited to be present and state their views in the matter. The question then will most likely be taken to a vote and if the major itys favor the ammending of the ordinance so as to let the picture shows operate on Sunday it will be so ammended, if not ordinance 37 will be enforced to a letter. Every merchant on Columbia street is in favor of Sunday base hall and picture shows and a ma jority favor the stores to be oper ated in the future as in the past Three columns ot interviews were t obtained from these merchants this week, but owing to lack of space e they could not be published. D SWILL NOT INTERFERE WITH SUNDAY GASEBALI HERE t I J Judge Talley decided that Web ster never meant ball park by k amphitheatre. An amphitheatre - is not a base ball park. City Attor ney Talley spent several hours last e week going over the city and look o ing up the definition from the n pocket dictionery to Websters Inter r. national Unabridged. Then he was - e not content to take Dan's word for d it and he sought Blackstone and n others, and when he had consulted w every book possible, he had a list s of definitions that looked like a g Ipolitical statement from Senator - Broussard, charging Col. Ewing with s certain things. There were none of r. the definitions that could be so " construed as to mean a baseball is park, so Sunday baseball games will not he interferred with much, to the ,s delight of hundreds of citizens of t Bogalusa who could see no harm ie from the national pastime. As a , result of the decision the fans and players are now determined to not Id only give Bogalusa the best in the ill city's history, but the game will be c. kept clean, and any "rag chewing" Is between plavers will not be permit d ted this season. at Sacred Cocert y" Rehearsals for the SacredConcert which will be given at the M. E s Church Easter night, is progressing le nicely. A complete program will be published in next week's Enter. prise. ,, Coveredl Dish Luadesa all Mrs. W. C.
