Dr. John 11. ( toier, of \Velshl, was chosenl as chairmtatl of the tnectihm and Mr. Earl Me.,lillan, of l aan.oke wa:t selected as stecret atry. The''i fact that the paris h w ,oult hle oi' d i seento't to le it forlHoti;e CLtlullson, thlerefore the attention of the nieeti: ' was cc.upii'd with the i uit"tii) of sttlhitn " iup t , t of ti ' tlt . t nwouitd i satisf; t 'actoy to all p!arts aS the prroposeld new ptarih. Aflcr c,('n siUd.rtat tl , d .t'.i i- .,tl ut tin th, t' u sti,,n of boidry lines, and, the best, icthlids of securing unity, of acti(tn on the part of the parish as a whole upon the qule.tioi of line. MI. 1. .1. Mills, u ieuton, movedt hat the se ator and representatives elect of this parish he asked to call a parish divisioni mass ime.eting, to be held in Lake (ha.les at sti e convenienlt date to dis uss the question and arrive at an uldersttud ing before the inattWr Was !it't'ceCltl.d to the Lc'gislature. This ,motion carried and was followed biy a second motion calling for a set of lines to ciricum. scribe the new parish to be created in the Suoutheast part of Ca!c:lsiu. The fol h wing commnittee on resolu titus was ap otiiut d+, i. J. Mills of FI"eton Chairman, Al M:i lin of lHeanke, J. .guillard of T''hortwqell, I'roerolo errtett of Htaves and l_'. E. Carr of Welsh. After it short recess the coImiitteo presented the following r.i-ilutuio s etering the above p ilNts. 1.ESOLUTI'ON NO. 1. WH iEREAs, we believe. if Calea sieu par'ih is to be divide l, ithat theilt interests of the whole pcl le would be best served by a ii vi;i on on equitable lines so drawn as to accomuodate the greatest number of citizens of said pari.,h and i1l) on lines that will forever precluue the further division of said parish, and, WHIEREAS, we believe that if those iuterested could be properly brought togetlher that an agree ment could be reached whereby the division could be acuco:uplished without sectional strife and the savinfl of considerable elxpense and bitter felitg, therefore, be it 1.ESOLVED, That out' Senator and Representatives elect be re .quested to call a conference to lie held in the city of Lake Charles at the earliest date that iwill suit their convenience to disciss the question of parish division, and that they be also requested to give public notice of this meeting aud Invite all persons interested to be present for the consideration of any equitab!e proposition fon di vision. RESOLUTION NO. 2. \VHEREAS, we believe the inter ests of the greatest number of the citizens of Calcasieu parish could be he,.t served lby creatinZ. a new parish on the following, lines, viz: lieghllinlg on the north o()und ary line o)f (Cauneron parish at the S. W. corner of Scction 31, T. 11 S., It. 7 W.; thence north on the range line between ranges , and S to the C(alcasieu river: thencen n1 the Calcasieu river to the section line three miles north of the town shiip line between townshilps 7 and y: thence east alhonri said section line to the ay(ou Nezlpi ue:thence dciwn tIatont Nezplique and the M1ernien tau river to tihe nolrth boundary line of Ctame.ron parish; thence west ialeg th north liii of Cameron parish to the piace of be giijinin, , therefore, be it I EsOIVED, that the oh:airmlian appoint a cnu nmittee of 15, one from each polling Iprecinct w ithir. the anove described terriw'crv and six at large to 1)resent these lines at the nmeeting which we have as.ked ourt senator and rel'reslenta ti res to call at Lake ('Iares, shoiuld such a ineetinc be cal(led, and to take such other action as thev see lit for the crea;tion of a new parish on the above lines. The first of these resolutions was carried by the unanimous vote of all present. The vote on the second resolution was uilanimutns1 with the exception of the dissentine vote of Mr. Verret, who voted against the proposed lines upon tih ground that some of the pe)pile of his section of the parish prefere(d a line :'unnini uip on the ward line betwoen Wards Two and Nine, whichi wIould leave therm in old Calcasieu. (His disseution was not based uoi)n the fact, as asserted in one of the Lake Charles piapers, that his people pr'efered the so called "Shoestrin:g" parish.) and further more he stated very definitely that he, behind his people would heart ily in dorse the p'roposed lines shoihl it be found impossible for them to be lef in the old parish. The meeting irs a whole was full of enthusiasm, and it is reasonable to hue lieve that the initiative has been takes that will lead to a just and equitable division of the parish upon lines that wsil be just to all and satisfactorv to most of the people of "lImperial Calcasieu.''
