Music Teacher Believes Anti-Vice
Activities Were Cause.
H. Kuhn, music teacher, of Madi
son street McDonoghville, suburb of
Gretna, who has been active in an
independent anti-vice crusade in his
neighborhood, claims he was attacked
twice Monday about midnight in his.
home by unidentified persons. Sev
eral shots were fired during
the second attack, rousing the neigh
borhood and creating much excite
ment.
Kuhn reported the incident to Chief
Lesson of Gretna Tuesday, but the
bfficer had discovered no clue at an
early hour Wednesday morning and
said he could find no bruises about
Kuhn's head. Kuhn was in bed
asleep, according to his narrative to
Chief Leson, about midnight 'then
he was awakened by hammering on
the window. By the time he could
arise, two men had forced an en
trance through the window and, he
said. were beating him over the head.
He got his revolver, he said, and
fired at them, whereupon they fled.
Later, however, they returned,
Kuhin, said, with a large force.
Eight shots were fired in the attack
upon his home, he stated. The shots
attracted i large number of the neigh
bors, but when they arrived upon the
scene the place was deserted and not
even Kuhn could be found. The as
sailants had fled, Kuhn msaid, fearing
apprehension; and he had left, appre
hensivb of another attack.
Kuhn told Chief Leson Tuesday he
had been assaulted on the head, but
Chief Leson said he could see no
evidence of a beating. Kuhn is a
bachelor, residing alone. He is. a
private instructor in music. Though
he holds no official relation with- the
War Department Commission of
Training Camp Activities nor any
other anti-vice agency, Kuhn has
been active in reporting such alleged
vice cases as came under his obsA
vation. He has reported two, one of
which resulted in a fine for one of
the men accused. He told Chief Leson
he thought revenge the motive of the
attack upon him Monday night. He
was positive, he told the officer, he
could identify his first two assailants
if brought face to face with them.

iRS. CAROLINE A. SLACK
DIES AT HOME II
ALEXANDRIA
The news of the death of Mrs.
Caroline A. Slack, wife of Rev. W.
3. Slack, was indeed a great shock
to her many friends here where she
resided for over twelve years.
The following excerpts are from
the Town Talk, of Alexandria, La.:
At St. James Rectory, 221 Winn
street, Alexandria, La., on Friday,
July 11, 1919, at 9:10 p. m-, Caro
line Augusta Slack, wife of the Rev.
William Samuel Slack, and daughter
of Wm. Harbert Benjamin and Ce
cilia Caroline (Breithaupt) Benja
min. She was born June 25, 1872,
in Brooklyn, N. Y., but removed
when a few weeks old to "Homestead
Plantation," East Carroll parish,
La., where she lived with her par
ents until her marriage, Decqmber
29, 1896, to the Rev. William Sam
uel Slack, then of Iberville parish,
La.
Educated in private schools, at
home, and at Staunton, Virginia,
she herself taught school for a while
in East Carroll parish.
Upon her marriage to Rev. W. S.
Slack she moved to his home at Mar
ingouin, La., and three years after
wards to Washington, La., and for
twelve years lived in Algiers, La.,
where her husband was rector of Mt.
Olivet Church. In 1914 the family
moved to Columbus, Miss., her hus
band being rector of St. Paul's
Church, and in September, 1917, to
Alexandria, Rev. Mr. Slack being
called as rector of St. James Churgh.
Mrs Slack was a devout membet
of the Episcopal Church, and was
interested in all phases of church
work, the Sunday School and Ouilds,
but especially in the Mission work
as represented by the Woman's Aux
Iliary to the Board of Missions. She
will be greatly missed by her co
workers in all of these branches of
the church's work. "
She was one of the pioneers of the
work of the Travelers Aid in New
Orleans, and was the first first vice
rresident of the organisation. She
was also a member Of the Kings
Daughters Society and at one time
president of the "Silent Helpers"
Circle in Algiers.
Always interested in literature
and art, she was a member of the
Reading Circle of Columbus, Miss.,
and the Poets Circle of Alexandria.
Besides her devoted husband she
leaves three daughters, Caroline
Louise, Cecilia Benjamin and Mar
garet Emily, to inourn her depart
ure, all of whom were present at
the time of her death but the latter,
who was visiting friends in New Or
leans.
Mrs. Slack had been ill for many
months, and a fatal termination
seemed certain, but courage, cheer
fulness and an indomintable will pre
vented discouragement so that at the
last her end came suddenly.
The funeral took place at 5 o'clock
Sunday afternoon, the beautiful and
impressive service being held in 8t.
James Church, in the presence of a
very large concourse of friends. The
Rev. C. B. K. Weed, groomsman and
classmate of Mr. Slack, and now
rector of the Church of Good Shep
herd of Lake Charles, officiated at
the service, asisted by the Rev. Dr.
H. C. Duncan and the Rev. Walter
Lennie-Smith, of Alexandria.
The musical portion of the service
was most beautifully given by the
vested choir under the direction of
Prof. Albert Deeks, organist. The
choir sang hymn 363, "O Lamb of
God Still Keep Me," unaccompanied
by the oragn. Mrs. G. Purnell Whit
tington and Mrs. F. J. Petagna sang
hymn 634, "My Jesus as Thoen Wilt,"
(Thy Will Be Done), set to the beau.
titful masle by Herbert Palfrey, of
New Orlesans.
As the funeral cortege wended it
way slowly from the rectory to the
church and up the main aisle to the
chanmel, the orgalst played Chopin'i
Funeral March, the solemn, modu
lated toaes falling over the hushed
assemblage uas the procession entered
the ehure. Tke opening msentene
were read by Dr. Dncan. Th
Psalm was read by the Rev. Mr. Las
ale-Smith with rempeasm by the -a
LETTEtRS FROM THE PEO)PLE.
New Orleans. La., July 13. 1,'1:.
Editor,. Algiers Herald.
Algiers. La.
Dear Sir:-
I note in today's issue of the Daily
States an offer for sale by the Coln
nissioner of Public Utilities, a fr ait
clise lease for a ferry from Walnut
Street to WVestwego and that tlih
published tariff rates are the sante
of generations ago. made to discour
age reasonable loads. no doubt in
times when flat boats were in exist
ence. These onerous antiquated
rates. made in tis mes gone by when I
the rate makers and purchasters of
franchises were about one and the
sanme parties. are again about to be
foisted and taxed upon us for an
other fifteen years or half a geni,'a
tion and the people of Jefferson
should take notice of conditions.
It is. I believe, the purpose of the,
people of Algiers and vicinity to do
all that can be done to secure a
dlownward revision of tariffs for the
Canal and Third District ferry fran
chises when same is shortly off-red
for- sale and it is to be hoped, that
when this occurs, the successful Wal
nut Street franchise bidder will not
appear and oppose our petition, on
the ground that the adoption of a
lower and modern tariff rate, for the
('anal and Third District ferry fran
chises, would reduce the value of
his purchase.
Yours truly.

K. C. HALL, ALGIERS NAVAL
STATION.
Many young" ladies of Algiers
spent another enjoyable evening at
the popular K. C. Hall, Naval Sta
tion, last Tuesday. The dances still
continue to be high-class and refined.
Great credit is due to the young
ladies of the town who entered into
the spirit of these dances, and have
complied strictly with the wise regu
lations that have been made for
these entertainments.
The secretaries do not say very
much but they are on the alert and
will enforce the rules in a courteous
manner, namely by not sending out
Invitations to those who will delib
erately violate any of the rules. Most
of the young ladies appreciate this
method of keeping the dances high
class, and it is a real pleasure to
watch them enjoy themselves. For
convenience invitations can be ob
tained from Miss Rita uratich at
the H. N. G. C., Sunday night. The
benefit for the organ is on in full
blast. Many tickets have been sold
and the organ is practically a fact.
This shows a good spirit.
The chapel is nearly completed
and soon ,the boys will be able to
pray in it any time during the day.

fresh from the wholesale houses and
factories.
"La Bonita" is also to have an up
to-date delicatessen department, and
for this, a display ice box has been
purchased, so that the customers may
see exactly what they are buying,
and at the same time, preventing the
people frontm handling the goods
which are offered to others for sale.
The new firm has some very origi
nal ideas, which they will inaugurate
shortly, and when put into effect, are
designed to save their customers a
considerable per cent of profit that
they had been paying heretofore.
The new firm bids you welcome to
their new place on Monday, and,
being from Missouri, theoretically,
you will have nothing to loose in
giving them a trial order.
