of the short space of time before the
completion of the assessment rolls of
the parish I will be unable to visit

concluded to designate places where I

Death of Wilfred Rodriguez.
After many months of suffering
from an incurable malady, Wilfred
E. Rodriguez passed away at 11:30
o'clock last night at the home of his
parents in Faubourg la Pipe, aged 23
years, 2 months and 8 days. While
his death was not unexpected, it
caused profound sorrow among his
wide circle of friends, who hoped to
the last that through the gracious in
tervention of a merciful providence
the young man might be miraculous
ly restored to health and permitted to
continue a career so auspiciously be
gun and that gave promise of continu
ing much happiness and honor. Mr.Ro
driguez graduated from the St. Jos
eph Commercial Institute in this city
with the class of 1912, and a year or
so later went to New Orleans and se
cured a position as clerk in the St.
Charles Hotel. His health began to
fail shortly afterward, and about
eighteen months ago, on the advice of
physicians, he returned home. A
young man of admirable habits, un
usual strength of character, and af
fable personality, he enjoyed the un
qualified respect and esteem of all
who had the pleasure of knowing him,
and leaves a heritage of rectitude of
conduct and faithfulness to life's ob
ligations that cannot fail to be a so
lace to the loved ones bereaved by
his untimely demise. The funeral
will tal place this afternoon at 4:30
o'lock.w ith services and interment
in the tholic church and cemetery.
Bes~ Jis father, Prosper Rodriguez,
Sr., eceased is survived by five
brothers and four sisters, namely:
Prosper, Ulysses, John, Sam. and Mol
lere Rodriguez, Mrs. Henry J. Loisel,
Mrs. Anna Morgan, and Misses Jeanne
and Angele Rodriguez.
Tells "What's Wrong with the World"
A fair-sized crowd heard Peter Col
lins of Massachusetts tell "What's
Wrong with the World" at the local
courthouse Thursday night. Lack of
harmony-in public life, in the rela
tions between capital and labor, and
in the home-is the reason advanced
by Mr. Collins for the strife and dis
sension now prevailing on this mun
dane sphere. Mr. Collins is a fluent
and easy speaker, with a pleasing
presence and a most ingratiating man
ner of stating his arguments and re
plying to the contentions of oppo
nents, and his address was thorough
ly enjoyed by all of his auditors.
The lecture was delivered under the
auspices of Ascension Council,
Knights of Columbus.
Highway Meeting Postponed.
The meeting of citizens of the west
bank of the river scheduled to be held
at Plaquemine last Sunday, for the
nurpose of discussing matters relat
ing to the organization of a highway
association and the construction and
maintenance of a 365-day highway
from Port Allen to New Orleans, was
pretermitted on account of the unfa
vorable weather which prevailed. It
is proposed to hold the meeting Sun
day, March 18, at Plaquemine, and
everyone interested is requested to
make a note of the new date and be
on hand at that time to aid in the or

GIVEN CHANCE TO REFLECT.
Judge Gilbert Sentences Peace Dis
turbers to Terms in Jail.
Judge Philip Gilbert is determined
to put an end to the rowdyism which
has long existed in certain parts of
the New River section, as manifested
in the action of young men who
"break up" or disturb school and
church entertainments and other
peaceable assemblages. At almost
every session of court a number of
"young bloods" hailing from the
seventh and eighth wards are brought
up for trial on this charge, and the
offense has become so flagrant and of
such frequent occurrence that Judge
Gilbert has determined upon drastic
measures to cure the evil.
In the district court Thursday
morning, Michael Blair, Sosthene Ba
bin, Moise Dupuy, Bryan Stevenson
and Jacob Rheams, indicted for cre
ating a disturbance in a public place,
were fined $10 and sentenced to two
days imprisonment in jail, with two
days additional in default of payment
of fine. Snell Sevario, indicted for
the same offense, was fined $25 and
sentenced to ten days in jail, the
heavier penalty imposed upoht him be
ing due to the fact that this was his
second appearance on such a charge.
Judge Gilbert notified the "hell
raisers" that if they should ever come
before him again for a similar in
fraction of the law, he will double the
fine and jail sentence originally im
rosed, and that if they should be
i)rought up a third time he will com
mit them to jail for an indefinite pe
riod, or until they should learn the
error of their-ways and evince an
inclination to become better and more
Peter Sevario, indicted for cutting
with intent to murder, pleaded guilty
to cutting with intent to kill and was
remanded for sentence. Ie is one of
the young men accused of creating a

LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE.
The Chief is not responsible for
views expressed by correspondents.
As to High School Needs.
The dilapidated appearance of the
High School, taken in connection with
window shades in the Donaldsonville
the report of the grand jury pointing
out this and other needs of the school.
has led to some mild criticism of my
action in erecting a flag pole and in
curring other expenses in improving
the school grounds before attending
to these first needs.
For the information of any one
who holds these views I wish to state
that conservatively estimated it would
entail an expenditure of about $150
to provide new shades for all the win
dows of the high school, and much
more than that amount to install new
drinking fountains and repair the
ceilings of the various rooms. To do
either of these things would require
very much more than the means we
have available. The incidental fund
which is collected from the pupils
each year at most barely suffices for
the purchase of fuel, chalk, erasers
and to meet other contingent ex
penses of the school. Some years,
this for example, there is even a de
ficit. As to the miscellaneous fund
which is raised through various school
entertainments and benefits--nota
bly the school benefit nights gener
ously accorded us by the Grand Thea
tre-there are many urgent needs to
which this, or at least part of it, has
to be applied.
One of my predecessors purchased
a piano for the school at a cost of
$375, and of this amount my adminis
tration inherited an indebtedness of
$250. This has been gradually re
duced each subsequent year. Last
session we floored and made otherwise
fit for the use of the domestic econ
omy department two of the large
basement rooms at a cost of $66,
three-fourths of which was paid last
year and the remainder this year. As
this fund, out of which must come all
such expenses, is in no way sufficient
to justify us in undertaking to meet
the larger needs of the school men
tioned in the beginning, we have ap
plied it to demands within our power
Furthermore, we are bending our
efforts this year toward beautifying
and improving the school grounds and
in addition to what has already been
done we intend, before the end of this
session, to install several kinds of
gymnastic apparatus o.le play
grounds of the girls as -ell as that
of the boys. These reds, in my
opinion, are just as rea ind import
ant as the ones mentioned by the
grand jury, and furthermore, they
are within our reach.
To make necessary repairs on the
school building, which, by the way,
has been neglected in this respect
since its construction in 1906, and
provide it with the sanitary arrange
ments suggested, will cost from $500
to $1000. The duty of providing this
money devolves either on the parish
or the city, or both. The expense of
maintenance and repair, it seems to
me, should logically come from the
same source as the original building
