The Side Walk Question.
During the past few days we t
hbave made mention of the neces
sity of cement sidewalks and this, f
naturally, has raised some discus.
sion upon this important matter. c
We must say that many of our I
citizens have discussed the matter t
with us and they are all in favor
of cement sidewalks and we feel r
satisfied that in the course of ac
few days, matters will be in shape i
for us to submit a plan that will
be entirely satisfactory to all who
are of sound mind and can reason
ably discuss a question of necessi
ty, advancement and progress, we,
of course, would not undertake
the discussion of such importance
with a few moss backs who fall
into fits when they see any thing
that looks like progress and will
eventually lead to prosperity, such
unfortunate will surely go to
Heaven if not to the Pineville
Asylum. Some cannot control
their safety valve and are. natu

ty. we must, and will have cement
sidewalks. The more progressive
towns like Crowley, New Iberia
and Jeanerette are not satisfied
with paved sidewalks, but are pay
ing their streets and today even
the parishes are paving their main
Under such progressive condi
tions can the people of St. Martin
ville take a step backward and op
pose the building of a system of
cement sidewalks, we say no! Antl
we trust that the town authorities
will take the matter in hand at
once and push it to mature forms
with the least delay possible.
We must have cement sidewalks
and the sooner the better.
