States some months ago. and for whicl
the practical work is now under way,
The new extension, has already conie
within seven muiles of the Red River
and the construction of the bridge over
that stream and the grading on 'furr.
bull's Wland is progressing rapidly.'
The Natchez Democrat of the 16th.
also publishes a dispatch from New
York dated the 15th. which
says that "the extension of the
Texas and Pacific to the Red
River is within three miles of that
point. The line will be operated in
about a week, although the bridge will
not be completed until spring. North
of the Red river a line will be con
strutfed to Vidalia'to connect with the
New Orleans and Northwestern, dle.
veloping a rich and promising terrio.
ry. The important point is that the
St. Louis and Iron Mountain will
build southward from St. Louis tc
Vidalia, and a new St. Louis and New
Orleans route, more direct and on
lower grades than any existing route
will be established."
The longest and most important
bridge in the world, the Fouth
Bridge, in Scotland, has a force ol
about thirty five men constantly al
work painting it, except on Sundays
and in extremely stormy weather.
It requires three years to paint it,
and i scoon as the work is com
pleted, they commence painting it
again. During the eleven years thiw
bridge has been opened to the pub.
lic, the work of painting it has gone
on without interruption.
To be a first class jockey it means
something these days, and the sal
aries the leading jockeys demand is
equal to some managers of large
corporations. It is said that twenty
jockeys made over $300,000 this sea
son. Mabe and Reiff, who have
been in England, made;$40,000 and
:$32,000. Mahe is retained by an
English stable at a salary of $35,000,
while James B. Keene retains jockey
Shaw at $10,000. There are a score
or more who receive $10,000 and
over for their services. The salaries
paid these jockeys do not interfere
with them taking extra mounts,
which is a large pink-up.
The Rising Sun Recorder says
that "the return of Hou. A. P. Gor
man to the U. S. Senate from Mary
land ts one of the curiosities of our
politics. But a few years ago he
was repudiated by his. own party,
and considered as dead beyond re
surrection. Hlie is a man of vast ex
perience and great ability, and will
be heard from, if he is lonesome
there. It ts a remarkable fact that
when he takes his seat in the Senate
on the 4th of March, 1909, he will
be the only Democrat in that body
from north of the Potomac or Ohio,
or east of the Mississippi river."
The New Orleans Harlequin says
that "Miss FElo Field, of the Times
Democrat, is in receipt of a recent
distinguished honor. She has been
offered a staff position for life on
the Youth's Conmpanion, probably
the greatest paper of its class in the
world. The recognition was gained
by force of the excellence of- Miss
Field's special work in our Thund

came as a surprise. She isone of the
most brilliant and glorious little

T The Daily States of Friday la
in an editorial on the successful at
largely attended levee meeting hes
in New Orleans, says :
"An important co,nference of tl
representatives of the levee interes
along the Missississppi river was Ihel
in this city to-day. The interstal
Mississippi River Improvement all
Levee Association was organize
with a view to perfect a gener:
scheme for levee improvement, anl
to strengthen the sentiment in favr
of Government, State and local ai
in protecting the vast section c
country subject to inutndatiop b
the Mississilppi fl,ods. In order t
properly impress upon Congress th
necessity for making adequate pro
visions for this great work, it i
thought proper to have a perrnanen
representative of the assciation a

the interests of river improvement

There are few questions of largei
moment to Louisiana, Mississippi
Arkansas and Tennessee than the
great problem of confining the
waters of the Mississippi river with
in its channel at all seasons of thi
year; and while the States and level
districts have done much in this
direction, the task has been entirely
too great for them. The entire
country is coiming to recognize the
importance of the subject, and out
of the purposes of such meetings as
was in session at the St. Charles
Hotel today is to still further pro
mote the sentiment in this direction.
The people living in that mighty
basin between the Rocky and Alle
gheny mountains and the great lakes
and the Gulf are vitally interested,
not only in the protection of the
rich alluvial lands lying in that
rich basin; but also in keeping tht
channel of the river open for navi
gation, and the best engineering au,
thorities agree that this can best he
done by confining the water within
the natural channel of the river,
thereby enabling the current of the
river to accomplish that dredging
of the channel which would other
wise have to be done at great expense
In these days of great railway
combinations and the arbitrary for
cing up of freight 'tariffs by rail.
road agreements, the necessity for
having free and unobstructed a great
natural highway, which remains for.
ever open to all the people, and
over which the power of the great
trusts can never secure control, be
comes nmore and more obvious. The
great body of the people of the Mis.
sissippi basin hive in the Msssissip
pi a natuiral regulator of freight
tariffs, an insurmountable barrier to
the extortions of railway trusts;
annl so long as they see to it that
it runs free and unobstructed to the
sea they can never be seriously im
posed upon by the great combina
tions of capital being formned to con
trol the transportation of thIe coutn
try. The meeting to-day was to
make forever sure to the people this
great highway of the commerce of
the richest portion of the world. It
in to perfect the system with this as
its end, and to arouse thie people
of this whole section to the imnport
ance of the great work that is being
undertaken in their behalf.
The last Congress was most fa
vorably disposed in this direction,
but the bill making provisions for
the work was talked to death by Sen
ator Carter. It is desired that no
such fate shall befall the bill which
will be presented in the next Con
gress; these meetings, therefore,
will serve to rally the people to the
support of river improvemnent until
the sentiment shall become so strong
that no future Carters in the Senate
will dare to obstrnuct the passage of
measures having that end in view."
