One of the prettiest of the early fall
weddings was the marriage Wednes
day evening at 7 o'clock of Miss Juan
ita Barrett and Mr. Charles Germany
Moseley, which was celebrated at the
home of the bride's mother, Mrs. M. J.
Barrett, No. 339 Bermuda street, in the
presence of the family.
The spacious parlos parlors were elaborate
ly decorated with an abundance of
palms and lilies of the valley.
Reins of white ribbons held by Mas
ter Maurice Heath and little Freder
ica Fairchild Wilson, formed an aisle
at the end of which stood a very at
tractive arch of palms under which
the bridal party knelt during the im
pressive ceremony, which was per
formed by the Rev. T. J. Larkln. The
wpdding march from Lohengrin was
played by Miss Mabel Langwith, a
very close friend of the bride, as the
bridal party entered the room, where
stood the bridegroom and his beit
man, Edwin Kohn. The bridal party
was led by Mrs. M. J. Barrett and Mrs.
R. Moseley, mothers of the contracting
parties. The only attendant, Miss
May Barrett, wearing a robe of Duch
ess lace and carrying a shower bou
quet of pink carnations, immediately
preceded the ring bearers, Masters
Wilson Barrett and little Margaret
Heath, who were followed by the
bride, who was given away by her
brother, the Hon. John A. Barrett.
She looked charmilA in her bridal
gown of white charmeuse, trimmed in
old lace. Her veil of illusion fell from
a lace cap sad wreath of orange blos
soms. During the signing of the mar
riage register, "Call Me Thine Own"

THE POLITICAL HQkIZN
BY THE PLAIN MAN..
SOMB MORE BUNOOMB.
In an editorial last week entitled "More Municipal Corruption," the Times.
Democrat, either through complete ignorance of its subject, or for the delib
erate purpose of misleading the voters of New Orleans, thoroughly misrepre
sented the recent graft disclosures at Denver. In one portion of the article
"The Denver newspapers' charges of corruption passed temporarily with
out action, it being found impossible to get the evidence necessary to justify
indictments. In the meantime a majority of the voters, with that utter disre
gard for good government which characterizes the municipal electorate in so
many of our cities, elected a new administration composed in large part of
men who were under suspicion or who were loose in their methods."
As a matter of fact, the voters of Denver did not elect "an administration
composed ,in large part of men who were under suspicion," or if they did so,
then it is a sad commentary on "reform" movements, for the last municipal I
election was won by a reform movement, and we can hardly conceive of a
"reformer" being under suspicion. The object of the Times-Democrat is plainly
apparent. It wishes the voters of New Orleans to believe that its recent stories
of Sleuth Burns unearthing graft in New Orleans are true, but that it is unable
to clinch the evidence; but, at the same time, all our present municipal officers
are under suspicion. Pay no attention to such rot; the Times-Democrat is
smarting under the recent defeat of the Goo-coos in the parochial primary,
and in order to bolster up its dying cause, will continue to misrepresent facts.
The people, however, have become used to this drivel and pay little or no at
tention to it.
WHY DO THEY WORRY?
The hysterical way In which the League organs are guessing and prognos
ticating over whom the Regular Democracy will put on their ticket for the
five Commissionerships soon to be voted on, is highly amusing. They have
paid so much attention to what the other side is doing that they seem to have
completely forgotten to name Commissioners of their own. Up to date not a
hint has been given as to whom the League will put on their ticket, and as the
time grows shorter, the Plain Man is beginning to believe that the Goo-Goos
will draw a blank so far as the commissionerships are concerned. If they had
obtained the consent of any respectable man to make the race, they would
surely have blazoned it forth in their two rogans. It looks to me like a hope
less case. Very few men like to spend their time and money running for an
office where the chances are two to one against them. Bear this in mind: un
less I am much mistaken, the Goo-oos will not have a ticket in the field. The I
constant worry they have shown about whom the Regulars will support proves
THE PERSONNEL OF THE COMMISSION.
The Plain Man notes that W. B. Thompson and Harold W. Newman have
been agreed on as candidates to bear the Regular standard in the commission
fight. Both of these gentlemen should prove highly satisfactory to the people
of New Orleans, as both are men of highest integrity and business acumen.
The Plain Man believes, however, that at-least two of the commissioners should
be men close to the people; it is a false assumption to suppose that only so
called business men can make a successful fight. The business men and the
laboring men have been oft times at wide variance over matters affecting them
both, and therefore the laboring man would like to see on this commission
one or two men who are in thorough sympathy with them, and on whom they
could count to give them a fair deal when the occasion arises. A man like Alex
Pujol would be just as acceptable to the laboring man as any "shirt-front" you
could name. Alex is clean, and has performed his task in a satisfactory man
ner. Given wider latitude, he can be expected to show much better results.
Don't be deceived by this cry of "ward-boss." The men (if they should be so
fortunate as to get any to accept) that the League will put forth will be the
selection of the eight bosses of the League. The way in which this hypocrit
ical bunch of would-be reformers has apportioned the state patronage among
the seventeen wards of the city, shows plainly which way the wind blows. As
I have continually told you in this column, the Goo-Goos are nothing more
than a bunch of omceseekers, and all efforts to blind the people to this faee
have so far tailed. These gentlemen were given a sound beating in the late
primary, and there is a worse one in store for them if they toe the scratch
on October L
AN ACT OF HEROISM.
Last week all of our daily papers published tull accounts of the courageous
act of young Clifton Caurr, son of C. E. A. Canrr, general manager of the New
Orleans Southern & Grand Isle Railroad. This courageous youth, who was
very reticent regarding the incident, deserves to be recognzsed the hero that
he rally was in risking his young life to save that of an old man eighty-one
years of ag. To spring into the Mississippi river with all his clothes on, and
fghting for many long minutes to save another's life, deserves all the praise
that may be given him. and'lso deserves tfurther recognition from any insti
tution, society, or individual that rewards bravery with some insinia that the
hero may retain sad cherish.
This tI not the Arst time that young Clifton Car has saved a life; -only a
short time ago in Canada he was instrumenatal in saving.a person from drown
ing. Wg have this information from rst hand, but were unable to et amy
positive data Crom the yong man or his eonnection -especal Cl , who
is indeed modest, and retuses to be interviewed on the sabject.
This action is in keeping with a true hero and that he should and will be
properly rewarded is the sentiment of all our people who read the acount of
this daring act. The reat nuamber of passengers on the frry boat at the
time young Ca made the leap were all loud in their praise for him, and that
he is deserving of tfurther recognition is eonclusr.
