The Lafourche Progressive Union has set the movement on foot and is earnestly pushing it. At its invitation Mr. Williams representing " company which makes it a business of building canning factories and starting them in various parts of the Country, has been among as for some time, laying his proposition before our people who have been considering it and are taking the necessary steps to sgeaiss a coupany to take hold Without discissing the me.its of that proposition, the Swraxsm. desires to briefly consider the advantages of a canning factory to the community In which It exists and is operated. We may start out with the general proposition that factories help to build up a community. Factories afford employment to willing labor and attract a desirable class of ar. tisans to the community, and thus add to its wealth and population. The operation of factories increase in be community the volume of money in circulation; this increase of the cfiulating medium stimulates busi nes and promotes the general pros peri~y among the people, every class in the community, merchants, real estate owners, lawyers, doctors, artis ans, laborers and all, sharing in it, directs; or indirectly. These are general propositions that few will dispute and none can successfully controvert. jOt if true as to factories in gen eral, they have much more force and cogency when applied to a canning factory, which possesses peculiar ad vantages which are not common to all factories. A canning factory here will not only offer employment to the people in town seeking it, but it will also afford a ready and convenient market for truck farmers, and there are a large number of small farmers Tathrofre zeh ewre last analysis means that, ones in operation, the canning factory Is a continuous source of profit to the community: it helps the farmer, by allowing him to diversify his crop, and giving him at his door a ready market for products which he could not dispose of before; it helps the laborer and artisan by opening a new field for their labor; it helps the mercantile business by throwing a larger volume of money into circula tion, and increasing the capacity of consumers, besides bringing farmers to town, to tarry their produce to the factory and to trade; it helps the community at large by the increase of wealth and population, thus en hancing the value of lands and houses. And all this is done without sending a cent outside of the parish, over and above the cost of the construction cf the plant, save perhaps the small cost of material for packages. The raw material will be gotten from our lands and the price thereof will be paid to our truck farmers; our own people will be employed in the factory and the wages paid out will remain In ihe community3 while the products o1 the factory will be sold abroad, and money will be brought in to be paid out to our farmers, laborers and artissans, and to be divided among the stockholders, eaftr all expenses paid.-So much for the advantages. Now, as to the objections. Some say it will not pay. Why not ? it is a paying business elsewhere, why can't we make it pay here ? Teere is no good reason why we cannot make it pay as well as the business pays elsewhere, if we put into it the proper amounot of business sagacity, push, energy and determination. But where will we get the raw material to can ? ask others. W1hy, right here, and all along the bayou; tomatoes, okra, peas, beans, and corn can be grown to supply ten or more canning factories, so why worry about supplying one?7 Rut our smtail farizers don't raise and will not raise these, object others. True, they have not hitherto raised. these for the canning market but it was because there was no demand fort tLems but let, us create a demand and show them that this kind of farming will pay them two and three times more than raising cane and we shall see how soon the demand will be supplied. Indeed, it will be a queP tion of a very short time when the supply will far exceed the demand, and there will be room for more factories in the parish. The move for a canning factory is a good one from every point of view, and we hope to see our people hearti. ly second the efforts of the U&ron. The establishment of such a factory In our midst will lead to the estab lishment of others. Thibodaux is on trial now; we have bee. talking about starting factories an4, Ietelegs I eqateh; sw s the time to pmve the faith that isl i as by sets. Our business and monied men most rise to the height of the occa sion, and seize the opportunity to establish a canning factory, which will lead to others, or else our reputa tion for thrift, enterprise and pro gress will seriously suffer. Let us act in unison, townsmen and countrymen, sad put up a factory. Escaped an Awful Fate. Mr. II. Hagginsof Melbourne, Fla., writes, "My doctor told me I had Consumption and nothing could be done for me. I was given up to die. The offer of a free trial bottle of Dr. King's New Discovery for Consump tion, induced me to try it. Results were startng. I am now on the road to recovery and owe all to Dr. King's New Discovery. It surely saved my life." This great cure is guaranteed for all throat and lung diseases by All Druggists Price 50e & $100. Trial Bottles free. Let Us Have A Good Road. In our last issue, we suggested the advisability of taking the necessary steps to raise funds by subscription or otherwise to shell the road from St. Charles street to the Catholie Church, as soon as possible, so as to prevent the recurrence ta the future of Its presmt himpis-ie coaditios. abt the U ike of the why its proper repair and malatensace should be a matter of vital concern to the public in general, and to the citizens of the town in particular. The SENTINEL has suggested shell. ing the road as a remedy, but it is not wedded to that plan. If anyone has a better plan to offer, let him bring it forth; what is desired is to have the road so repaired and built as to make it possible to keep it always in good condition. That is the end in view; the means to attain it are but a secondary consideration. But we should begin now to consi der the matter seriously and to adopt the proper steps to secure a good road. Our people are slow to move, but they are willing, and with the right men at the head of the move. ment, it will not be diff1cult to achieve success. Once more we auk who will take hold of the the movement?

S GOOD LOADS.-NATION AL MOVEMENT. Thibodaux Honored. We are glad to note that the Gov. ernor has honored both the parish and town by appointing one of our worthy citizens, Air. . H. Lancaster, one of the ten delegates from this State to the National (food Roads Convention, and hope our townsman will attend the sessions of the con. vention, as there will undoubtedly be much useful information to be deriv. ed from the discussions and proceed. lugs. That iaformat'oe so derived could be lapmtfsi to oar Vfpple - b r dehegate in a public report imde to the police jury or the mnalcipal council, and published in the local press. It thus appears that the presence of an intelligent delegate from this parish at the convention will be for the'general good and for that reason, it would be but just and fair that the public contribute towards the expense incurred by attendance. The Police jury, the town council, our business men, and our plauters, who suffer so much from bad roads, and one and all should contribute to the end that our representative ap. pointed by the Governrr fail not to attend. The SENTINEL. opens th( list with its mite of $2.50 and will receive such other contributions as public spirited citizens may make. The convention is to meet on Feb. ruary Mieth, 1903, and it will take some $ 7 to cover all expenses of at. tends nce. The time is short; let no one wait on the action of his neighbor but send in his contribution at once, Lafunrche should be represented. E.
