$100,000 to be Spent in
Colonization by the
At a recent meeting held in
Chicago, the managers of the
Southern Pacific decided that I
during the next five (months the
cmpany would spend $100,000
in an effort to colonize Southwest 1
Louisiana and Texas.
"Speaking of the idevelopment
of this section, Col. Morse said:
"S. L. Cary accidentally dis
covered that theland in southern 1
Louisiana would raise rice, and
one year later it took 100 cars to
transport the rice output about
Jennings, and land which in 1892 1
was worth 15 cents an acre is
now worth from *s0 to $50. In i
southern Louisiana alone there
are today 1,500 miles of rice c. -
nals and 6,000 reapers are used
in that State, where but a few t
years ago a small yield of rice
was harvested with the sickle.
The story of southern Texas is
just as woandrful, for in 1b98
there were but2,000 acres of land
under cultivation, whereas there
are nfow 200,000 acres. In one
section al:,,e resLdeants of C.ii
Cag)o own 3.500 acres of rice
For a while iu this section last
niaht it rairned very hard and the
wind blew mightly strng and
made many people who are un
believers feel a little uneasy.
The walls on the city hall were
damaged somewhat, about ten
feet of the walls being blown off.
The weather throughout this
section has been very wet and
heavy rains have fallen for a dis
tance of 200 miles around.

Beaumont. Texas, Dec. 1.
This morning at 2 o'clock three
residences on Sabine street were
burned to the ground. One of
the inmates of the house states
Sthat a burglar was getting into
a house and was fired upon. The
bullet passed through a curtain,
setting it afire, and not being
noticed spread rapidly. setting
fire to the house and two other
houses were burned also, before
the flames were checked.

Washington, Dec. .-It seems
tliat the enemies of the South in
congress are not disposed to lose
any time in beginning their at
tack. Just alter the ceremony
of swearing in new members
was finished today, Representa
tive Taylor of Ohio, chairman of
elections No. 1, created some
thing of a sensation by offering a
resolution providing that the
credentials of Carter Glass,
elected to the Fifty-seventh con
gress from the bixth Virginia
district, be referred to his com
mittee and inquiry be made as to
whether the election was "based
on lawful returns in the election
hield in Virginia, Nov. 4, and
upon which registration lists
such election was held, and
whether franchise was allowed
to all cit z -ns alik~e; and whether
citizens oi ;he United States en
titled to vote for members of
congress w(re deprived of any
rii h ts."
Tli'erec is no doubt that the
dlcumo rats i, congress will re
sist the resolution to the Extent
of their ability and that, if it is
pushed, one of the bitterest
stru-ggIes congress has ever
soeen wvi;l be in evidence.
