We cent the to ti Says Trolley Road is a Cer- slrei tainty. ty t' but ever Between July 10 and 15 ground corn will be broken at Thibodiaux for the ] building of the linest interurban elec tric rai:way in the South, and one of will the b-at equipp td of any similar road i in the United States. The road will doet rzv"erse the finest truck gardening tr snit timber lands in Louisiana, and trie will bring those sections in immediate t" touch with New Orleans. e The woad will be built from New equi Orleans to Montegut, a distance of chat ninety miles, and it is eipected that eers the flrt trains will be running by c Feb. 1, 1903. The route will be and from Montegut to Houma, thence to the Vacherie. through Thibodaux, thence th to Hahnvalle on the Mississippi river, d and from tLcre to New Orleans over don the tracks of the Yazoo and Mississip pi Valley Railroad. The road will touch some point on the Gulf where brih deep water can be had. The particu allo lar place has not been selected. will After this line shall have been completed the company will at once whi begin the construction of another line from Thibodaux as the central the point zil running to Donaldsonville, the Napoleouville and Lockport, which will make a mileage of 175 miles. ai The construction of the road has passed the experimental stage, and w will soon be an accowplished fact. 1 All the n.cessary capital has been 10 secured, the coutracts let, supplies l1r and equipment purchased, and as d goon as men tind money can do the work the road will be constructed. The right of way has been secured, mc the plans and specifications are com pleted. and bonds of $2,000.000 have been sold to construct and equip the bol fir t section of the road from Monte- the gut to New Orleans. The company, wit which is backed by a Boaton syndi- p, cate, has not only suflicient capital to en; build the road, but has a surplus wil which will he used to develop the lot country through which the line will ass by encouraging the building of g i urnitdire tacroIV nTiUT tTWmr yi m canning factories is the truck garden- ye ing sections, and by supplying epee-- pa tric motive power to thº se factories thi and to the engar mills at a rate of th4 cost that will enable them to compete ce with any similar industries in the is country. - th GREATEST SOUTIHERN PaoJxcT. Ti When the road shall have been au completed it will represent the great est electrical railway construction 61 ever undertaken in the South,, and bc will place the sections of the country try through which it passes in close touch na with New Orleans at a freight and wi passenger rate and within the short- fia est time ever before enjoyed by those wi parts of the State. as The road will be called the New Orleans and Southwestern Railroad, ra and C. P. Young of Thibodaux is the fo general manager. er Mr. Young spent yesterday at the re St. Charls Hotel, and gave a full or account of the proposed work. He qi is an electrical engineer of interns- re tional fame, having had charge of hr the constituct:on of the Philadelphia w] railways and many other electric p works of almost equal magnitude. He has been working on the plans of w the New Oilcan. and Southwestern au Imany months, and no deinil of the p1 work that is necessary t'a tts fullest e, I auceas has been ov.-riooked. ,w Speaking of ihe road last nighL, b Mr. Young said: a, now no long r in doubt. The first construction work will Ibe begun at 5 Thilbodaux betwten July 10 and 15, a and will be 1mudhed as ispidly as men, a money caja espeiience can do it. in ti Bfact, h df of ihe work has already b b 'een doiie, as the right of way bi is a kbeen aecured, plans andl specifications r 5 drawn and contracts for all supplics, a machinery, equipment and construc tion let, and any one familiar with r railway construction knows that when a those things are accomplished the is greater part of the work is already c done. d DELAY iN MATEBIAL. "The work would have been begun F long ago but for the fact tbat it was s impossible for us to sooner obtain the Ir necessary material, It is well known I that it is almost impossible to get iron, copper wire and other material s Sused in the building of a road like* t ours, as the factories are overrun pr with orders. I have traveled more e than 7000 awiles to place orders for 6.equipment with such factories ast would guarantee to fitl them on time. I SAt last4 I succeeded, and there is now nothing in the way of the immediate I beginning of the work. y "We will have the irst section of the road, which will run from New Orleans to Montegut, through Hlouma, SThibodaux, Vachere, Llahnville. and ' 'thence over the tracks of the Yazo3 I and ullississippi Valley Rsilrosad to Jew Orleans, in operation by Feb. 1, of w. 903. Next year we wall extend the tion me to include Donaldsonville, Napo- such eonville and Lockport, which will time ;Ive us a mileage of 175 miles. "We have all the capital we need. ") Ye are not asking the people for a will ent. A Boston syndicate is behind er to he enterprise, and 5 per cent bonds, road o the amount of $2,000,000, have augs ýIready been sold. 1 am not at liter State y to say what price they brought, mutt mnt I will say that it was the :ighest furni :ver paid for the bonds of a similar confi :ompany in this country, will FRasT SOlTUERN INTERURBAN. eithe This "When the road is completed at from will not only be the first interurban ' ailroad in the South but in its every we p letail it will tie one of the finest edec for rae railroads in the country. No coun expense has been spared to secure mine he most modern machinery and mine equipment, Nothing has been left to been :hance, but the best electrical engin- ant ters have been employed and the grew combined power of brains, experience Sout eud money has been used to obtain ,.] the best and most modern equipment, of w "Eagineers have carefully surveyed p. S the route, and everything has been gene done to insure the best and safest tieai lne that skill could devise. Bayou taryt Lafourche will be bridged. The men bridge will be turned by electricity to twee allow the passage of boats, and an oper automatic signal will be used that have will cut off the electric current for tug 1000 feet on either side of the bridge that while it is turned, which will prevent that the possibility of trains running into o[es the bayou. "The power will be supplied from that a central power house at Thibodaux. of ii This power house will be furnished no with the finest electrical mac:hiuery ii, time the world, capable of generating aski 10,800 horse power, and will be the frot largest south of St Louis. The smokestack will be twelve feet in are diameter, anti 200 feet high. The "Po cost of this power house al.mne wl1 xa t more than $500.000. rail Foa PASSENOER AND FREJIoT. Orly "The road will be equipped with both passenger and freight cars, and these will be drawn by locomotives with four motors each of 160 ioi se.: power, or 640 horse power to each one engine. Nothing superior to th'm will be found in the world, and each last locomotive will cost $17,500. Hal '"TLe passenger coaches will b1 fifty feet long and fitted with cvý ry con venience. Air brakes and the finest patent couplings will be used, anl Phi the furnishings of the coaches will be wit the best that money can procure, ex- An cept that on account of the climate dre instead of having them upholstered, qui they will be furnished with cane seats. len They wiil be lighted by electricity sad and provided with every convenience. (h "The freight cars will he of from Re 60,000 to 90,000 pounds capacity, but in reality there will be no freight wa trains. They will be more of the sic nature of express trains, as a.l trains ma will be run at a speed of from thirty, mu five to forty miles an hour. There noi will be separate coaches for whites an and negroes. wb "Between the regular trains we wil: ci run intermittent cars at a speed of tin forty five miles an hour, which will dio enable those who have missed the ski regular train to reach New Orleans or any point of destination almost as Ra qeickly as if they had gone by the sis regular train. These cars will also of have Geperate compuarimnts for whites and negroes. PiERFECTLY EQUIPPED S YSTE31 mi "Another new feature of the road ed will be that we will do away with the wI use of the telegraph and use the tele- thm phone instead. There will be sidings tic every four miles, automatic signals or Swill be used and in short nothing will be be left u~pdone that will insure safety re and quitk transportation of both freight and passengers. ha S"The employees of the road will be m Sspecially elected, and none but the *t ,most expert and experienced men i Swill be employed. Thme number of re Strains will depcnd entirely upon the Sbusiness done, as the nom pany is fin. its Iancially able and willing to give eve. 1! S ry service that the exigencies of the c ase mar require. - "Aside from constructing and ope 1 rating the road, the company h as Ssufflcient capital to assist in the start. 8 iag of sawmills, furniture factories, gi F canning factories and other like in. duatries along the rotate. The road bi will pass through a densely.populatkd is ii part of the State that is rich lam many g a natnial resourcers which it is our T e purpose to help to deve'op, and to ci n'in every way encourage. rt "We have already interested a b LI number of pernons in the flne timber L e that ises along a part of our lane, and Ii ma we hooe to see many indeastr es st:,rt. e etI that havc been awaiting only the a er advemat of cheap and qijeik transpur-o a tation. The fine farmiing end trnu-k e.lands have also been investigat..d l'y w men Interested in that line:, and we ,elconfidenatly believe that in a shust time there will be seen a wondeful at development of that section of the w State. m, *'A repair shop will be erected at dThibodlaux in which niot emily :all our Sown repainting will be rone, but we ' owill also be prepareal to do all kinds ºf work fir the planters in that sec ion of the country at a cost and in uch short time as to save them much ice and money. FUIINLSHINO or POWER. "Another feature of the enterprise vill be the furnishing of electric pow r to sugar plantations, and as the oad will pass through the largest sugar producing par hes in the state we believe we can be of great nutual' benefit to each other. The 'urniahing of this power will not he -onfined to the sugar planters, but vill also be to all who desire it for ither power or lighting purposes. Phis power will be furnished to all `rom the river to the gulf. "When the first ground is broken Se purpose making of it a gala day or Thibodaux and the surrounding ountry. Guy. Heard and other pro. nmnent officers, as well as many pro ninent citizens of the State, have teen or will be invited to be present, intl we will make of it one of the ;reatest times ever witnessed is southern Louisiana. 'The otlicers of the company, all if whom live in Thibodaux are: C. P. Shaver, president; C. P. Young, ýeueral manager; L. H. Lancaster, Lieasurer; Thomas A. Badeaux, secree Lary. I will have the active manage ment of the road, and as I have had twenty-nine years' experience in the aperation of electric railways, and have given months of time to study- ing every detail of this line, I feel that I am riot immodest in saying that I am competent to successfully operate it. "I have no hesi:ancy in saying that the road will be one of the fine$t of its kind in the country. I have no object in makiung statements that time will not verify, as we are not asking the contrthution of a cent from the public. None of our bonds are for sale, and we are determinesl upon only one thing; to give the people of Southern honisisma one of the most modern and best equippe'd railroads in the country from New Orleans to the Gulf. Thibodaux College. The Thibodaux College completed one of the brightest, happiest and most prosperous session in its history last Friday morning at the St. Jusepb Hall. A very unique programme which contained a nmbi wer of very in~pat Mr. Charles J. Aucoin and Mr. Philip Canscienne were graduated with honor from the College. Mr. Aucoin delivered the Valed.ctory ad dress and his speech rang with elo quence from start to finish. Excel lent papers were read on the "Cru sades" and King John and the Magna Charta by Mr. Guy J. Knobloch and Reginald T. Badeaux. The Musical part of the progtame was in charge of Prof. Argence. The success of this part was certainly marked proof that Prot Argence is a, musician and an instructor second to none. Little Francis Meyer played an instrumental solo on the piano which was much enjoyed and appre ciated by all. If this little mad con tinues to iinliroVe his musical educa tion day by day be will become a skilled musician. The diplomas aid premiums were awirdrd by Father Ravo!re. The premiums given con. sisted of high grade ho ks good many of which were bou4d in handsome morocco leather. After die distribution of the pre mniums by Father iRavoire he address td those present in a few words in which be expressed the' wish that all the boys would spend a happy vac's Ition and that when the College woult Iopen on Sept. 1st thai. they would all Ibe fount at their desks in the College ready to begin a new session. IThe present session of the College has been a most, successful one ia many respects. The attendance of students at the College this last ses sion has been the largest of any out record.
