Ratification of Prohibition
Amendment to Come Up
Next Week
The call for the special session
of the legislature to convene at
Baton Rouge on Monday, was issued
by Governor Pleasant Wednesday,
and the ratification of the prohibition
amendment, which was defeated in
the Senate by a tie vote at the re
cent session, is the principal reason
for calling the session. Other bills
of importance will come before the
session, which is expected to occupy
all of next week. The "drys" are
confident that the legislature will
ratify the Federal amendment, while
the wets are just as confident that
it will be defeated.
Reports are to the effect that the
amendment will not pass the house
by a large majority as it did before,
but the "drys" are certain that the
majority is <so large in the house
that there will be no danger of the
bill meeting defeat there. The tie
vote in the Senate is supposed to
have broken by the election of a
"dry" senator from Winn parish.

We are now informed that the
statement was in error, and that those
who have registered since January

Some effort should be made to call
the public's attention, in a conspic-

poll tax requirements for the present
election, and every citizen and voter
should check up his poll tax receipts.

Three Gold and One
Silver Star in Flag!,
The fourth ward of Washington
parish has a service fiag which con
tains three golden siars anfi one
silver one, which means that this
ward has lost three young men in
the present war, while another was
wounded. On the flag is 67 stars and
it was presented Saturday at a big
patriotic meeting at wnlcn Rev. A.
^man Townsley cf this city made
the presentation speech, while Mrs.
E. ?L Bannister made the acceptance
address. It was one of the greatest
meetings of its kind ever held in the
Parish. Following the meeting, tne
f mothers, wives, sisters and sweet
hearts cf soldiers organized a society
i to do all in their power for the sol
diers. The meeting was held at Mt.
Hermon and Rev. Townsley was
greatly impressed with the patriotism
of the community.

Break Unconfirmed
No official advices regarding the
reported break in relations between
Turkey and Germany have reached
Washington, hut the government
would not be surprised if Turkey
has been driven to an open rupture,
as there is a well-founded background
J for the report.
It has been known for some
m 0 Ilt jj S that a deep and growing feel
ling of dissatisfaction has existed in
Turkey over the treatment by the!
Germans. Reports that a Turkish
mission recently has been trying in
Switzerland to cultivate friendship
with some of the Allied governments
have been received here. It would' be
natural, officiai said, for the Turkish
government to endeavor to find
some new friends among the powers
before breaking with it3 old associate.

Mayor Sullivan has returned from i

Overton, Hall and Gay All
Have Admirers in Boga
lusa and Parish..
Judging from the present indica
tions the vote in Bogalusa in the
race for United States Senator is
going to be pretty well divided. Gov.
Hall, who on all occasions has shown
an interest in the* city has many
friends and admirers here and while
he has not visited the city since an
nouncing his candidacy many have
announced that they will support him.
Mr. Overton, who made an address
here last Wednesday night, was
greeted by a good crowd and made
a most favorable impression upon the
audience. Many have expressed i
them themselves as being inclined to ■
support Mr. Overton. ,
Edward Gay w r as in Bogalusa last j j
Saturday with the Swine Breeders, !
and while he was not mixing politics 1
with his visit here, he made a num
her of friends. Mr. Gay as well as
Mr. Hall, are expected to give Boga
lusa some attention before the pri
mary day arrives.
As the situation now stands in
Bogalusa the 800 votes of this city
will be about evely divided, if the
election was held today.

State Fuel Administrators have
been advised by the United States
Fuel Administration that they have
authority to prohibit, expept under
special order, the sale of coal to
domestic consumers in Realities
where a plentiful supply of wood
is available. They also were advised
that if wood dealers advance prices

Many I. C. Cars Would Be
Sent Here As Well As
From Three Other Lines
Bogalusa has an opportunity of
having one of the largest railroad
repair shops in this section of the
South, if sufficient labor can be se
cured to turn out the work. When R.
K. Smith, new director of the four
railroads in*this section was here a
few days ago, he announced to the
Enterprise that he was willing to
make Bogalusa the main freight car
repair shop of all the lines which he
was directing and this week he ha3
announced that hundreds of Illinois
Central cars can be sent to Bogalusa
i if there is sufficient labor and equip
■ ment to make the repairs in good
, time. W. S. Hanley, superintendent.
j j s making arrangements to get the
! additional help and Mayor Sullivan
1 has sent word that he and the citizens
of Bogalusa are ready to co-operatc
in any way to secure a big railroad
repair shop for Bogalusa. At pres
ent there about 300 employed in the
local shops and judging from the
amount of business Mr. Smith can
send to Bogalusa the force could be
doubled or possibly three ships of 8
hours could be worked.
Bogalusa being an ideal place for
railroad men to live should result im
the labor beeing sêcured. Bogalusa
has sown her appreciation of the rail
road men and every citizen is anxious
to have more locate here.
Swine Breeders
Enjoy Meeting
— *
One of the most enjoyable meet
ings held in the history of the Louisi
ana Swine Breeders' Association was
held here last Saturday. About 50
members of the association attended
the meeting. On the arrival of the
train here the visitors were met by
citizens with autos who carried them
to the Great Southern plant where
they witnessed the sawing of huge
timbers for ships. Various other de
partments of the mill was visited and
they were then taken over the South
side of the city, making a stop at
the Y. W. C. A., after which they
went through the modern plant of
the Bogalusa Paper Company, where
the visitors saw paper being, made
f rom yellow pine waste. The execut
ive session and luncheon was served
at the Pine Tree Inn, where acting
Mayor Johnson made an address of
welcome. President Gerrir.g, of New
Orleans, Secretary Jordan, of the L.
S. U., Fritz Salmen, Edward Gay,
and other prominent members made
interesting talks. The visitors were
loud in their praise of the reception
accorded them, and hope at' another
time in the near future that another
meeting will -be held here. JL K.
Johnson, of the cut-over land depart
ment of the Great Southern Lumber
Cômpany, arranged all of the de
tails for the visitors and the success
of the meeting is due in no small
measure to his w'ork.
A thief entered the home of E. G.
Gibson, 209 Superior Ave., one o?

ping. When she returned she found
the back screen door had been cut
and that $25.00 had been taken from
