Levee Board Bonds.
The New Orleans papers of a recent
date announced the sale of bonds of the
Fifth Louisiana Levee Diitrict, to the
amount of $175.000, at an average
prioe of 109).
These bonds were issued by our
I;evee Board under the Act of the Con
stitution and the Act of the Legisla
ture, permiting the Levee Boards
throughout the State to refund their
outstanding bonds, by issuing new
bonds to bear five per cent .interest to
Irun fifty years. The old bonds bear
six per cent.
No better evidence of the high stand
ing of our levee board could be offered
than the premium which these bonds,
which were sold under sealed propo
salk. brought, the transaction betting
the Board some $16.000 above the face
value of the bonds; and the transaclion
shows in a most practical was the con
fidence reposed by the tfinancial world
in the capacity and integrity and good
faith of the Levee Board.
Many different citizens of the Fifth
Levee Districq have contributed during
their membership of the Board to this
happy result, but the two Tensas mem
bers. Messrs. C. C. Cordill and G. C.
Goldman, by reason of their almost
continued membership since theorgan
isation of the Board, is largely due the
credit which it enjoys
In season and out of season these
faithful public servants have l~bnoed

to them the people of the whole dis.
trnet, and partluctany the people of
Tensas. in whose lsvee line no crevasse
has occurred sioe f881, owe a debt of
gratitude beyond measure,
Upon the eMeilency of the levee sys
tem depends absolutely the prosperity
of the people of Tensas. Floctuations
in the price of cottow may cause tem
porary depressions or elevations of
talmees, but so long as we are protected
frm overflows, there most take place
a steady advance in the values of our
Sands and in the prosperity of our peo.

just measure of praise.
S We endorse every word said by the
r- Tensas Gazette in. the above article,
