T'rhe City of NewOrleans has had
its share of public gatherings lately.

ten days, with almost as may in
attendace. The great street fair,
the horse show, and many other
things have also been going on.
There is no city tn the Union to
compare with New Orleans forits
hospitality and good cheer to the
stranger. It isan ideil place for
autcli gatherings to take place, and
especially at a season of the year
when the city looks the prettiest.

Below we- pt ish a letter on -the
good rodi.g ,ijt, ddressed to the T
Frhklin Sum by Mr. Hicks. wbo rep- fort
resented tbattparish at the Good Roads C
Conventionibeld in New Orleans at
the close, of last month. Mr. Hicks will
shows in his letter that good roads can prey
be built and maintained at- very little
cost with the improved machinery now 1
in use. The matter of public roads is 2
of paramoont interest, and now that ron
we have seen what can be done, the
good roads question ought.to be solved. phi
)Ve should take advantage of the op- 4
portunity, and make the start imme- 0
diately, without further delay, in the ora
direction of improving our road ways. sou
Mr. Hicks is his letter to the Sun in e
what he saw at New Orleans and of
Natchez, says : ug
With pleasure I represented our par- gra
ish at the Good Roads Convention held
in New Orleans on the 29th and 30th
ult. It was well attended by repre- of
sentative delegates from nearly every
parish in the State, avd I firmly believe ep
this move will prove beneficial in se- On
curing better roads in our country. bre
and especially in our own parish, me
where, if properly constructed, we can bui
have as good dirt roads as can be made .
in any part of the south. of
I saw in New Orleans a very tough litt
proposition in the way of building a to
mile of road in the heaviest .'buck
shot" soil or deep black land, all done
by machinery drawn by mule power
which, when completed. was up to dia
date in every particular. I was much mo
interested in this great work. tat
I spent two days with the Good
Roads people in Natchez, consisting of
the President and Secretary of the Na
tional Good Road Association, Senator
Dodge, representing the U.S. Govern
ment with headquarters in Washing
ton City, engineers, and agents repre
senting marchinety and reporters for
the press. The train consisted of sev
eral cars containing all kinds of dirt rml
moving machinery for both horse and adj
steam power-ditching and rock crush- f
ing machinery. I1vitnessed while there de,
the construction of a piece ot road' in ph
the high hills surrounding Natchez Ja'
which was tiled where needed for
drainage, and will be coated with
gravel later on. The trouble in the hill we
country is to prevent washes, which
makes these roads hard to maintain. an
With us it is quite different, as the all on
important part of road building is
An old road way in a level country vet
(such as we have) can be constructed on0
at an actual cost, not exceeding $35 pet
per mile with the requisite implements for
as follows: 1 Brinley road plow, an
SAustin grader and roller, the cost of for
which would not exceed $700. It is to
thus seen that we can construct an up
to-date road at a very reasonable cost. 18
Once built, the minimum cost of main- on0
taming would be small. The small tee
bridges, not to exceed 10 or 12 feet in
length, could be made on the ground ar3
of concrete, consisting of two parts of on
i gravel and 1.part of Portland cement, fix,
on the same order as an arch of an un- tin
derground cistern is built. All these
nimprevements are now in tbe reach of pet
the people. the
The question is: "Have we the the
progress to join in this great onward sal
movenient and have thoroughfares that qu:
we will be proud of in the near fu- tir
ture?" Methinks I hear a silent toned hin
voice fron our grand little parish, cle

The State of Kansas has a capital
punishment law on her statute
books, but it provides that when a
man is convicted of murder in the first
degree he shall he taken to the State
penitentiary and confined for one
year, after which he shall he hanged,
upon the governor signing his death
warrant. Every Kansas Governor
has failed to sign such a warrant,
and the result is no one has been
hanged, and the penitentiary has
many such criminals within its walls,
