In presenting this request for the
favorable consideration of a pro

It will take no part in tle fac

but will ever be found in the van
in resisting the encroachments of
public enemies to the comnuon
wealth, native or foreign.
We think Shreveport and vicin

PROOREss proposes to be, and we
requestly ask that this venture he
made a success by giving it your
hearty support.
Put Your Shoulder to the
In common with the entire
country our State is just emerging,
weak and debilitated, from a pro
tracted struggle with the giant
Finance. While to some extent
this great dictator has been over
powered, the contest has left the
opponent ; thereof with little means
and as limited resources with
which to weather the dull season
which now comes on apace. To
meet the coming demand is what
all should unite in preparing for.
By acting in unison the matter
can be very successfully man
aged, and yet no one will be called
on to give alms. The capitalist
desires an investment for his
money, the mechanic, laborer, etc.,
employment. Shreveport furnishes
the field and material, and all that
is .necessary is the display ofa
little pluck and energy. There
are several enterprises which
ashould be put in front again after
their sleep during the monetary
stringency. No industry has ever
yet failed in North Louisiana
where it had been properly cared
for and ooerated on business prin
ciples. Shreveport has never yet
turned a deaf ear to the claims
of any enterprises on her bounty,
and she and her friends, the sur
roundiog parishes, are still willing
to yield up their rich treasures to
thosiwhbo have the honest industry
to delve for them.
Litevery citizen contribute his
mit, whether it be in the value of
meon, work or encouragement, or
all thrci, and see if the anticipated
daull smon can not be made a very
active, thrifty one, which will re
mit in bringing on a period of
prapYui which will certainly add
to the growth of thetown and in
wres she wealth of the country.
