PATROLMAN JOSEPH LACOSTE.
The large number of persons who
attended the funeral of Patrolman Jo
seph Lacoste, who was killed by the
negro Edwards, testified to his worth
as an officer and a man. Mayor Behr
man, Inspector Reynolds, Senior Cap
tain John P. Boyle and Police Commis
sioners Hincks and Pardue were pres
ent. A detail of twenty men, headed
by Sergeant Clavin and Corporal Geo.
Bengart, accompanied the remains to
their last resting place in St. Mary's
The hour set for the funeral was 2
o'clock, and by that time there was a
large representation of the citizenship
of Algiers in the home, and those who

The funeral took place from the late
residence of the deceased officer, in
Hines avenue, McLellanvllle, at 2:30
o'clock Friday afternoon.
Patrolman Lacoste's death is sn-t
cerely regretted generally by the
members of the force and by his many
friends and acqualntances because orf
the merits he possessed, both as a po
lice officer and as a man.
It was said of Patrolman Lacoste by
a friend at headquarters, who has
known the deceased for many years,
that the deceased officer would mhave
gone through fire to do his duty. Pa
trolman Lacoste, for some time back,
has done duty In the lower section of
Algiers, wherehe e covered a wide area,

few, if any, members of the force rel

shirk his duty and was conselentious
to a fault in the performance of same.
He leaves a widow and seven chil
dren, who were dependent upon him.
Parsuant to an order from the In
spector of police, every pollce station,
including the inspector's ofce at po

William Means, aged 28 years, em

at 8:30 o'clock Saturday night when
