tial citizens and real estati owners, is
interesting himself in the erection of a

opiinion that lie can induce Eastern
capitalists to take stock in the enter
prise. It is vestimated that the re
finery will cost' $100,000, and will be
located on Ba:you Robert, about four
miles from Alexanlria. The planters
on Bayou Robert have olffered to sell
their cane to the refinery, should it be
