DOG KILLED BY POLICE.
Patrolman Martin Pusch humanely
dispatched a crippled dog Sunday
night at Pacific avenue and Evelina
street. The canine was injured by a
street car and its condition was such
that it became necessary for the offi
cer to administer chloroform to end
its sufferings. An unsuccessful effort
to learn the name of the owner of the
dog was made.
TWO $3,000 COTTAGES.
Bermuda street, adjoining Peter
Rupp's Drug Store, will soon be the
scene of considerable activity as Mr.
Rupp will start, within a very short
time, the erection of two double cot
tages costing about $3,000 each. This
will be a material improvement in
Bermuda street, especially so since
these new cottages will replace negro
shacks and will add considerably to
the looks of thhe neighborhood. Mr.
Rupp is to be congratulated for his
continued confidence in our district,
and we trust that his investment will
MR. VERNEUILLE HURT.
Morris LeBlanc, a saloonkeeper of
311 Pacific avenue, was arrested Mon
day night on charges of assault and
battery, trespassing and fighting and
disturbing the peace, growing out of
incidents at the plant of the street
railway company in Algiers on Mon
day evening, when he had a fight with
a negro named Arthur Bush in the
place and later struck and knocked O.
V. Verneuille unconscious, claiming
that Verneuille held him while the
negro struck him. Verneuille says
that LeBlanc waited for him on the
outside of the plant and hit him with
out cause. LeBlanc pleaded guilty in
the night court and was fined $10 for
fighting and disturbing the peace. The
other charges were preferred against
him in the Second City Criminal Court.

ANOTHER TAP LINE FOR GRAND
I New Canal Will Be One Mile Long and
Forty-five Feet Wide.
Tho N*.A Ori~ans Southein i ('raniid
I Isle- Railroadl has already clos-d ion
tract i sith dr:,edginl boats for the di-i
ging of a bi6 canal whi ih a ill open
their track; at a station knoll is '
Ollie, which is event-ien miles fromn
Algiers qol that road.
Tie purpose of this new canal is tQ
nmake, a niew aterway to Bayou Oies,
0 hi'ch makes a direct connection with
big Bayou Barataria. The purposes
of the digging of this waterway is. of
course, obvious. By getting a water
route from Bayou Barataria to Lake
Salvadore, Little Lake, etc., it will
give the truckers, fishermen and crab
men an opportunity of bringing their
wares direct to a rail line and thus
have their produce brought to town
many hours earlier than by following
Bayou Barataria to either the Har
vey's or Company's Canal, thence up
,he river to the nfhrket.
Bayou Oies is a navigable waterway
going into Bayou Barataria and at 0l
lie, La., Bayou Oles is but one mile
distant, therefore the digging of this
canal to Bayou Oles gives a naviga
ble waterway to thu Gulf.
The new canal will be a little over
one mile in length; it will have a
breadth of 45 feet and a depth of 6
feet. At the Grand Isle track termi
nus of the new canal, there will be
dug a large Lasin for the accommoda
tion of several hundred luggers and
power boats for the purpose of fur
nishing suitable harbor and landing
Vice-President Otto T. Meier stated
that the dredgeboat is now on its
way and that the actual work of dig
ging will be begun within five days.
As the section through which this ca
nal goes is alluvial soil, the digging
will be rapidly completed.
CAPT. REDFERN RECEIVES BIDS.
Bids for furnishing the articles to
be used in the clerical department of
the New Orleans Immigration Station
in Algiers were received Thursday by
S. E. Redfern, United States Commis
sioner of Immigration, at his office in
the Maison Blanche Building. Capt.
Redfern will spend the next few days
looking into the offers submitted by
the various competitors, before for
wardng to Washington those recom
mended for acceptance.
Capt. Redfern remarked Thursday
that he thought that within the next
thirty days contracts for various fur
nishings and supplies intended for the
station, would be filled. By that time
it is probable that the station will for
mally be taken over and occupied by
the immigration officials at New Or
leans. Unusually unfavorable weath
er conditions delayed early completion
of buildings on the reservation, but
now that everything except the fur
nishings is ready it will not be long
before the station is opened.
A gasoline craft has been assigned
to the New Orleans Immigration Sta
tion by the department, and this boat
will be used in boarding ships and
conveying the inspectors and others
to and from the city. Dormitories have I
Ieen provided for the expected immi- 1
grants, and when the doors are thrown
open for the reception of prospective
American citizens, New Orleans will
boast one of the finest equipped sta
tions in the United States.

The new session of the public
schools will be opened all over the
city on the second day of February,
and at this session, like the beginning I
of the term in September, there will I

INJURED ON DRYADES CAR.
On last Friday week while in the act
of disembarking from a Dryades car
at the inte section of Royal and Canal
streets, Geo. G. Brunssann was in
jured by being thrown against one of
the seats in the car. His injuries at
first were thought to be slight, but a
few days later developed into very
painful bruises. While Mr. Bruns
sann is up and about, he has felt the
shock severely and is having some dif.
ficulty in walking.
DEATH OF OLD CITIZEN.
We learned through a clipping from
the Plaquemine Daily Champion of
the recent death of Jos. Richards, a
former Algerine. Mr. Richards was a
brother of the late Peter Adolph Ri
chards, and an uncle of Messrs. Frank
and Steve Richards, and Misses Claire
and Ella Richards of Pelican avenue;
also Jos. Richards of Vallette street.
The clipping from the newspaper
recites the career of Mr. Richards an4
speaks feelingly of the fact that but a
few days before his death they had
celebrated his golden wedding. His
death occurred at Bayou Goula at the
age of 77 years.
Miss Claire Richards, who attended
the funeral, returned Sunday night
from Bayou Goula.
