"ma"ae we~t ' i An, as ho was familarly known in New Orlesans and St. Louis, was laid to rest in liettefon tale (lenetery this afternoon, and his funeral was the largest seen in St. louis since Mayor Barrett was buried. Doin De liar was tbeloved by everybody in Ft. Louis. He had n enemies here, and in fact was not possessed of charactoristles calculated to provoke en mity. He confined himself strictly to his bkseIne-mauaawng a theatre. He never was known to take any part in politics or meddle with other people's affairs. He was a celebrity, and St. Louis claimed him as her own, a claim that had to bo partly shared with Now Orleans, however. He was popular with old and young, and It can be said with truth that none have beon more sincorely mourned In this city than "Old Blon." He was genial, even jovial, In his social intercourse, and honorable and up right in his transactions. lien Deolar was one of THE1 MOST (7HA1ITAiiLU MIE that ever lived. lie possessed the true spirit of charity-that which performed the deed and vaunted it not. His name was never heralded through the press as a liberal sub scriber to charity funds, and yet no man in St. Louis gave more to that purpose than he. His heart was as tender as a child's, and his whole sympathetic nature responded to a story of distress or affliction. A leading citi zen of this city engaged in the grocery busi ness said last night: "Mr. DoBar always traded with our Mouse, and whenever we saw an item hli the morning papers stating that some family or widow in a cer tain locality was in destitute circumstances we calculated on a visit from Ben DeBar, and before the day passed he would called around and order ten, fifteen or twenty dollars' worth of groceries, or maybe more, In proportion to the size of the family, sent to the address mentioned. Just as sure as he ever saw any thing of that kind in the papers he sent them something and always said they needn't know ,where the things came from. Mr. DeBar has paid our house thousands of dol lars during the last few years for goods sent to poor people." HIS NO5trruiRN MENTIM1ENTl. Another gentleman who has had an oppor tunity to know says lin DeBar contributed more to the support of families of Southern soldiers, during the civil war, than any other one man in the city. Mr. DeBar kept his political opinlons to himself and neverlingag Od In diseusslons on such subjects, but he was known to be a warm sympathizer with the South. He made himself a sort of guardian for the wives and children left here by those who went to fight for the Mouth, and it is said he had sixty different families to watch ov'r at one time. If charity covers a multitude of sins then the shortcomings of Ben DoBar will be buried so far out of sight by his benev olent acts that they will never appear against him on the Day of Judgment. The funeral took place at 2 o'clock this af ternoon, at Masonic Hall, where the body has been 'ying In State since yesterday. The in tention was to hold the funeral services at the DeBar residence, but it became apparent this morning that the parlors could not contain a fraction of the people who would be present, and it was decided to conduct the services at the hall, which is one of the largest in the city. Rev. Dr. Berkley, rector of St. kuls Episcopal Church, preached the funer r men, and it was one of the finest efforts of his life. The funeral cortege stretched for squares, and the streets were lined with men, women and children. The sorrow at the lose of one who has contributed so much to the amusementof all, was indicated in every face, and when the clods rattled on the coffin at the grave, tears stole from the eyes of hundreds. DERJAR'H OPERA HOVsE will continue business under its old name, and will be managed by Mrs. DeBar, widow of Ben, George J. Jones, treasurer, and John G. Priest, executor of the estate, and intrust ed for many years past with the management of Mr. DeBar's real estate business. Mr. De Bar had made all his arrangements for the season prior to the attack which terminated in his death. Ho had re-engaged nearly all of his old stock cong.y, arnd miade terms with stars extenilingeuntil late in the season. Mr. Dollar always entertained a warm re gard for Now Orleans and its people. it was among them he made his d'bul in America and citiaens of New Orleans came to his aid when he needed money to engag~e in buciness for himself. His course during the war shows how devoted he was to the Mouth, and his miost intlrmate and trusted friend is authority for the statement that Mr. DeBar's love for the Mouth and her people was the result of the hospitality and kind ness shown hime by the people of New Orleans many years ago. A WAR OF WORDS. The Globe-DeJmocrat and Republican are en gaged in another wordy war against each other. Dictionaries of bill,insgate and slang are ransacked to find expressions strong enough to convey the feelings of one editor to thd other, buiso far the Globe has decided ly the bettWr of the fight.
