, Maj. Kerr, representing the State
Board of Engineers, Mr. Hill. and my
e self, representing our Board, attended
the meeting of the Mississippi River i
Commission in St. Louis on the 15th
instant and am pleased to repott that
f we will get a liberal slice of the appro
Ipriation for this year-$270,000.0d for
d the Fifth Louisiana Levee District, in
J the Fourth U. S. District. j
On the presentation of the needs of 1
our District by Major Kerr, and the c
representatives of our Board, the Corn- a
t mission agreed that this money be spent i,
e on our weakest levees.
We have a "sand boil" or leak in the
side of the levee at Hollybrook-this is'
at an elevation of about six-feet above o
the level of the ground and near the J
- junction of the old levee and new loop'
which should be repaired. Mr. Robert- J
son and myself investigated this care- e
fully and decided that a river-side slope
a should be put on above and below the!
angle to cover any leak through the
f levee or coming from the pits. The en- c,
largement contemplated would cost l
about $1,000.00. S
Respectfully submitted, n

THE PRESIDENTS INTEREST IN s
PROBLEM CF FLOOD CONTROL.
The following recent letter 4
from P'reshident Wilson to Senator 4
Ranslell is being given much s
pullicity : "I am glad rou have
given ame an opportunity by your T
important letter of September
:i to express amy very deep inte
rest in the pr',hlelm of ldood
control in the valley of the Mik- N
sissippi andl in the vDalley of the fi
rivers runming into the lMi:sis- "
01
sil)pi. It is a question to which it
I have 'tlreadly devoted a great tt
deal of attention, and(l I shall S
continue to stlud it with the de- A
termination to -,contribute all that it
I caan to iti solution,. I lelieve S
that thi;is is one of the chief F4
physical problems confronting ar
the c',antry and that it is our as
plain dutygo address ourselvesto
to it very actively anl with at
determinattion to succeed." 12
•.luainjaz by his past sticcess in
dealing with "-confronting prob-. i
letns," we arreglad to see that 'a
President Wilson pledges him- ti
self to a continuonus study of this w
one. That investigation of it, q
s,
"'with a determination to colniri- ra
hute to its salution" will lecatl
hint to endorse the plat. to that, k
en lwhichl have btee approve.. i
an i adopted I by the giver Cocm-' e,
nlaisiol., alnd the enl:ineer crops, s(
unanioia'usly. the:e is no reasol h
to doubt. This view of t.ie con- ti
clusion of the PIresident's study L
it enltertained, atihaolgh it in- h
volves a reversion of his learning Is
to-wardl tlhe Newlands scinL e; as
winch would perpetrate tie folly pi
of merging the tested plan o, I31
lower river fliood control, with
thie untested theory of treating -
the upper streamas.
1lE PANAMA CANiAL CLOSE1'.
A landslidle has closed tihe
I Pamnaa canal to traffic, and sonme
steamers in transit are blockedl
between exits. It is not a pleas- G
ant fact to contemplate, but there T
is no cause for for apprehension 31
growhng to undiue oundls. Tihe
explanation fromn Washington is
tilat thie earth movement was an in
expected one made to procure m
equilibriumn, hence the matter
should be regard(led as simnilar to
thie settlinlg of a house, which
does not enrtanger its stability,
but rather increases it.
There has always been a clique
hbusy in predicting disaster to tihe
canal fromnt earthlquake or othler
cause, and it is hoped that they
will prove to he discomfited
pessimists. Engineers of the
hiighlest qualifications have super
vised thie building of this great
waterway between the oceans.
an, had made the maost careful
inspection of thie ground forma
tion. That thie fault in the
Istrata, far in the interior of tie
eljacent land. night allow an
e rthluake to cause destruct n
t thie canal is not the fear of the
engineers, hence it is well to,
have confidence in their ability
to counteractall thie ordinary
mishaps.--N. 0. States.

CHARGES OF ADMISSION TO
LOUISIANA STATE FAIR.
It is doubtful if any fair in the coun
try ec'arses a lower admission price
then the Lorisiana State Failr at
Shreveport. The reason the visitors
are admitted at such a low figure to
the Loulirnna institution is because
the Louis:ana fair is primarily an ed
ucational factor. It is not meant as a
money-making proposition. The man
arement desires only enotugh financial
return to rfefrav expenses and prepare
for the pext year'* fair.
Some of the attraetions ,aJoyed by
the vi-l'ors are worth two or three
times the chnare of admission, but the
idea Is to make the "hare, lust as little
as possi'le. And that this course has e
been follo"ed consistently is shown
by the prices of admission this year.
which are officially announced as fol
lows:
eer*ral day admission to fair
grounds. for adults. 50 cents.
Generat d,"w admission to fair
grounds for children. 25 cents.
General ar'mission to all after 6
o'clock in the evelnitn. 10 cents.
Admision to children five years old
and under, free after i o'clock in the
evening.
Admission to colisaeum, to horse
show. "e. cents.
Admission to coliseum, to Thaviu's
band concert. 25 cents.
General admission to grand stand.
for raes, Z5 cents.
General admission to ,rand stand
for football games. 50 cents
