Letter to the editor

by on April 12th, 2017

Madam Editor,

Recently I took a day trip to New Toulouse Bayou, for reasons of Sightseeing and certainly having nothing to do with illicit hooch distilleries, and I was shocked to discover the presence of an Alien Invasion right here in our own Parish.

These invaders are as beautiful as they are dangerous. I am speaking, of course, of Eichhornia crassipes, the water hyacinth.

A single plant can produce five thousand seeds and cover an acre in one growing season. A woman brought one home to Florida from the World’s Industrial and Cotton Centennial Exposition of 1884, and when it overran her fishpond, she put the extra hyacinths at her boat landing. Would you like to know how many miles of the river soon became impossible to navigate by steamboat? Two hundred miles, that’s how many.

If these prolific plants were to spread from Bayou to the Missedabracket River, that great muddy road of Commerce, our entire Parish would suffer. I have heard that a local grocery handed out free water hyacinths as a promotion. We need a concerted effort to eradicate this picturesque menace, not to encourage it in the name of selling more washing-powder.

Scientifically yours,
B. Robicheaux

CHARGED WITH VIOLATING LOTTERY LAW
Charles Oubre, alias Charles Comeaux, gardener, 65 years old, was arrested Thursday evening at 6:30 o’clock at Royal and Nightingale streets and charged with violating the city and state laws relative to having lottery paraphernalia in his possession. A lot of tickets, lists, etc., together with United States currency, were found in his pockets. Affidavits were preferred and he was paroled to appear for trial.

FIRES SHOT INTO STORE
Some unknown party fired a shot, supposedly from a revolver, Thursday evening at 7:30 o’clock, from the direction of Wikifoo plaza, and the bullet struck the wall of the store of Daniel Pollard, 8 Nightingale street, then glanced and shattered the glass of a window valued at L$5. The police have obtained no clue.

GERMAN ARRESTED HERE
Alleging he saw him acting suspiciously at Royal and Nightingale streets Tuesday morning, Patrolman Hoffman arrested August Morhing, 22 years old, a native of Hamburg, Germany, and turned him over to the federal authorities at the immigration station.

Hungry women besiege New York city hall

by on April 5th, 2017

Scene at New York city hall showing the food rioters, nearly all women, mounting the steps in their effort to see Mayor Mitchel. The first of the police reserves have arrived and are stopping the first rush. Thousands of women from the East side and other sections of the city opened a crusade against the high cost of living and started by raiding push-cart peddlers who had raised their prices. They then marched in a disorderly body to the city hall to enlist the mayor’s aid in their fight against the rising cost of necessities.
