REV. DR. NOLL HERE
FOR MONTH'S WORK.
The Rev. Arthur Howard Noll, LL.
D., registrar for the University of the
South, will have charge of Christ
Church Cathedral during the month of
October, while Dr. Barr is out of the
city. Dr. Barr is not entirely well,
and will remain away until he is comr
peltely restored to health.
Dr. Noll will be remembered by
Bpiscopalians in New Orleans as a
former rector of Mt. Olivet Church.
He was rector of the parish from 1892
to 1895. He left here to go to Nash
ville, and has spent the intervening
years in Tennessee. He has been reg.
istrar of the university since 1902. He
received his degree from St. John's
Besides his work as a priest, Dr.
Noll has been engaged in the writing
of books. Before entering the minis
try, he was a railroad man in Mexico,
and his books on that country are
standard reference works on its his
ory. A good sketch of him appears
in "Who's Who in America." Dr. Noll
came to New Orleans from Port Gib
son, Miss., where he had been rector
for three years.
While in the city Dr. Noll will en
deavor to reach as many of the alum
ni of the university of the South as
possible, with the purpose of complet
ing the directory of the university he
is compiling. He will preach next
Sunday night from the pulpit of Mt.
SMAYOR BEHRMAN TO SUPPORT
Mayor Also Announces Boylan His
Choice for Recorder's Clerk-Defin
ite Statement Sets Rumors at Rest.
With the official announcement by
Mayor Martin Behrman that he will
support the former incumbent of the
third recorder's court. Thomas P. Goff,
for appointment again, when the com
mission council shall have been seated,
many rumors that have been flying
back and forth in Algiers will be set
to rest. The people ot the fifteenth
ward have been keenly speculating as
to whom this plum would go to ever
since the regular faction was victo
rious in the recent primary, and while
a few on the inside knew that the for
mer recorder, who was deposed by
Governor Hall when the state's chief
executive appointed Guy Sadler recor
der, was slated to receive the Behr
man support, there were many who
Foster Is Contender.
It is said that among the most prom
inent contenders for the position was
George Foster, a former councilman
from Algiers and presently an inspec
tor of the department of agriculture,
but the mayor was said to have felt
- that inasmuch as Goff had only held
the position a few months when the
governor deprived him of his seat it
would only be justice that he should
again occupy the place.
For recorder's clerk the mayor has
announced his support of Sam Boylan,
e. Jr., a popular young railroad clerk and
t one of the most active workers for the
,f regular party in the ward. Boylan has
e never held a political position before.
i, Others Mayor Will Aid.
Edward Grimes, the former janitor
of the Algiers courthouse, will also be
y supported by the mayor for reappoint
The present recorder, Guy Sadler,
and his clerk, Frank O'Keefe, and Jan
2 itor Robert Crombie, all Good Govern
- ment leaguers, will be forced to vacate
g the office as soon as the new commis
slon council takes its seat.
BODY OF SUICIDE FOUND ON BAT
g Lying on the batture between Olivier
r and Vallette streets, the head in a pool
, of blood, the body of August Catchings,
e aged forty-flie years, was found Mon
e- day morning at 8 o'clock by a negro,
a Joseph Williams. It is believed that
II Catchings ended his life during the
- night, as the body was cold and a 45
r calibre magazine pistol was at his side.
There was a wound in the head.
I- Catchings caused a disturbance In
i- the neighborhood of his home, 528 Del-.
a aronde street, Sunday night, where he
t- fired four pistol shots, three while in
e the house and another on the side
t walk. A bullet was found on the gal
L. lery of 529 Delaronde street, just
across the street, Neighbors told the
police, when they started an investiga
tion, that Catchings was drunk and
fired the shots. Officers watched
Catchings all night, but without suc
cess. They feared he would harm him
self or someone else, and were seeking
to prevent a tragedy, if possible.
It is presumed that Catchings went
to the river front immediately after
Bfiring the pistol at his home, and there
ended his life. No one could be found
who had heard the shot, and it proba
bly will never be known at what hour
the deed was committed. The bullet
passed entirely through the man'
head, entering the left side just above
Catchings came here when the races
were an attraction of New Orleans.
He is said to have been the owner of
several horses, and at one time was
successful. When the races were put
under the Dan by the Legislature, he,
as did many others, sought other occu
pation. He sett'ed in Algiers, and got
employment as watchman for the
Southern Pacific Company, with which
he worked up to about a week ago. He
had lived with his wife and her son,
Malcolm Eist, until a month ago, when
a separation took place and Mrs. Catch
ings went to live at Grand Route St.
John and Gentilly Road.
When the widow learned of the sul
cide she hastened to the morgue and
arranged for the removal of the body
to an undertaking establishment, from
which the funeral took place Tuesday.
Miss Caroline Slack little knew when
she won the medal given by the L S.
S. P. C. A. for a composition on kind
ness to animals that she would also
win much literary fame.
Some weeks ago the society received
a marked copy of a paper published in
Nova Scotla, in which Miss Slack's
story had been reprinted, and this week
the society has received a marked copy
of toe Herald of Life (New Haven,
Conn.), in which Miss Sltack's story is
published in fulL The story is "How
Pusy Became a Hero," and tells of
how some little puppies, humanely
saved from death, in turn save a large

HAS BEEN SUBMITTED TO PROS
Algiers Improvement Again After
Southern Improvement & Ferry
MEETING MONDAY NIGHT.
The important subject of the fran
chise for the sale of the Third l)is
trict Ferry came up Monday night at
the meeting of the Algiers Improve
ment Association for further consider
ation. The franchise, which has been
prepared by the committee in charge
of the affair, stated, through Mr. Law
ton, the chairman of the committee,
that the specifications are only tenta
tive. and are subject, of course, to
modifications, but in the main they re
present what is desired and required,
in order that the Third District Ferry
may be given a service commensurate
with the other ferry operating on the
Mississippi here and other services in
The Herald received only Tuesday
a copy of this voluminous document,
and it will require some time to take
excerpts from same in order that a
synopsis may be given to our readers
so that they may intelligently inter
pret the requirements which will be
The three prospective purchasers
for the franchise are the New Orleans,
Southern and Grand Isle Railway,
which is in all probability the most
interested in the franchise; the South
ern Improvement & Ferry Company,
and the Union Ferry Company. All
of these corporations have been given -
copies of the franchise and the chair
man of the committee has received
replies and acknowledgments from all
these companies, except the one oper
ating at Canal street.
A strong resolution was adopted, in
structing the secretary to see City En
gineer Hardee regarding improve
ments which the Southern Improve
ment & Ferry Company promised to
make at the Canal street ferry on sev
eral different occasions. It is the opin
ion of The Herald that this company
will make no improvements. This was
our prediction a year ago and so far
we have been correct. If any improve
ments are to be had from the ferry,
company, it will be gotten- only
through persistent efforts.
A very important matter that came
up at the meeting was that of trans
ferring the government works, now at
Carrollton, to our local Naval Station,
which would give employment to sev
eral hundred people and would fur
nish sufficient shops, yards and water
space for the construction of the many
barges that are being constructed
there annually. A committee was ap
pointed to confer with the exchanges
in the city to look into this matter.
The committee is composed of Messrs.
Peter S. Lawton, M. S. Mahoney and
John P. Vezlen. It was decided that
the association request the Public
Works Department to regularly sprin- -
kle the ramps leading from Morgan
and Delaronde streets, being the two
principal approaches to the ferry.
WILL BE READY ON OCTOBER 19. st
The new fast train, which is soon
to be inaugurated by the Grand Isle
Railroad is causing quite a great deal a
of interest among the sportsmen, es
peclally on our side of the river, who s
will be glad to avail themselves of a
this extra accommodation. The new "
train is to be known as the Sports- d
men's Special and will be run in addi- p
tion to the regular train, leaving Sat- t
urday night. The regular train will
leave, as usual, at 5:30, making all the
local stops, while the Sportsmen's e
Special will leave at 4 p. m., makl -
but five stops in the 59 mile journey,
and the running -time from here to
Bay Adams will be about two hours
and a half. The principal stops to be
made are at Doullut's Canal, Magnola,
Myrtle Grove and some point between
Myrtle Grove and Algiers. This same
train will return the same evening,
giving an opportunity for the Lower
Coasters to spend Saturday night and
Sunday in the city; the train will leave
Buras immediately after its arrival,
so tlat no time will be lost. The fare
on this train will be $1.50 for the round
trip, but the tickets are good from Sat
urday, returning on any train up until
The company is also putting on an
other round trip rate, being good from
Friday evening antil Monday morning,
the rate being $2.10 for the round trip.
The regular Sunday excursion, how
ever, leaving Bataurday night at 5:30,
or Sunday morning at eight o'clock,
will be $1 for the round trip, as usual.
This is quite an Improvement over
the old scbedule and no doubt will
be greatly appreciated by those who
enjoy the 3ne sport in this section.
