DONALDBONVILLE, LA., Saturday, November 6, 1881. - --' LOCAL JOTTINGS. Gondran's Blue Store has been em bellished with a fresh coat of paint and new goods are pouring in daily. Mr. Emanuel Bercier raffled two fine caken last Sunday and No. 17, held by Mr. Frank Martinez, captured one, while No. 86, held by Mr. Fulgencec Bourgeois, won the other. Last week the Assumption made her first trip of the season down Bayou La fourche, and, like the St. Mary, she now makes a.mi-weekly voyages between New Orleans and Thibodaux. The weather is dry and cool, just the conditions most desired by sugar makers. The weight of cane juice has increased considerably within the past few days and planters are encouraged to look for a better yield than they have heretofore expected. Messrs. H. C. Grube and T. A. Kings ton, accompanied by their families and household effects, took their departure for New Orleais on the steamer Whisper last Wednesday. As we stated in last issue, Mr. Grube will continue his busi ness of making mattresses in the city, but what occupation Mr. Kingstou in tends to follow we have not learned. Grinding was logun at the Clark, Orange Grove and Tureaud plantations, in the fifth ward, on Thursday. Labor in plenuiful ald no signs of discontent ore visible among the hands. Wages are the same as last year-$1 per day and fifty cents per watch. A rumor was cir culated in Donaldsonville on Wednesday that a strike had taken place on the Burnside plantations, but it had no foundation in fact. The unfortunate man who died in the old railroad depot building Sunday night of last week, and whose demise was re ported in the last number of the CnIEF, was Martin Bannon, a native of Ireland, about 40 years of age. Coroner Vande griff held an inquest on the remains on Tuesday, and the jury concluded that the cause of death was general debility, resulting from hard drinking and expos ure. The body was buried at public expense. The removal of Gen. Allen Thomas from the parish has caused a vacancy in our Jury Commission which Judge Cheevers will doubtless fill by appoint ment at an early day. The present mem bers of the Commission are Messrs. N. Bel, Henry C. Braud, Austin Duncan and L. E. BenLley, Clerk of Court. It will be necessary for the Commissioners to assemble during the coming month or early in December to draw juries for service at the February term of the Dis trict Court. A second race between Mr. John Rey nand's horse "Lamb" and a mare named Kate, belonging to Mr. Greaud of Iber ville, was run at Bayou Goula on Wed nesday last, and resulted in a decided victory for the horse. In the first race the mare crossed the line only a foot or two in advance of the horse, but on Wednes day Lamb retrieved his reputation by leaving about forty feet of daylight be tween him and his competitor. Consid erable money changed hands on the event and several residents of Donald sonville were among the lucky winners. The erroneous idea has gained credence among some of the illiterate tax payers of the town that the special taxes being collected by the municipal authorities were levied by the Council to pay for the construction of the new bridge being built across Bayou Lafourche. These taxes, as we have before explained and as all reading people among us ought to know, are levied in accordance with judgments of the Supreme Court in the celebrated consolidated bond suits, and the present town authorities are in no wise responsible for them, nor have they any connection with the new iridge. It would be well for i1ltelhlig,.,t citizens to ,-xplaiin these facts t. their less en lighiteu, ned lighboru, Op,1it. Tbat.Shanks made a deeperate effort to pretepd he didn't know who the young fellow was that got kicked by a Baton Rouge damsel. That the-.sest of the boys know who it was and Shanlsa' ignorance doesn't fool any body. That the playful tiger has struck town again and will snatch the capillary sub stance from all who buck him, and That the festive beast doesn't intend to let his competitor, the strike associa tion, get away with all the poor laboring man's spare dollars. That the elongated youth objeeti to the insinuation that he boasted of hav ing things his own way at the hop. That he thinks, however, he can stand that rap from his friend up the river, con sidering the cironmstances and the spirit in which it was given. That the wood business isn't particu larly lively, but That considerable money has been in vested in chips recently. That a few of the Guards are kicking four ways for Sunday over the first part of that bar-room section. That Kang aw'ear in all the colors of the rainbow that be can't forego the great American privilege of taking a drink wherever and whenever any body offers to treat. That even sturdy Fritr" is dubious as to whether he will be able to stand dot segehun, but Tiaat we'll wager his ability to stand it after some of the others have fallen down under it. That Phil was disposed to join the kickers until he remembered that the commanding officer generally invites him when he imbibes. That John didn't find the seat on the sofa so tempting as he expected. That there must be something wrong with the adolescent elephant's teeth, as he hasn't been able to eat any thing re cently. That it's fortunate heo has plenty of surplus adipose tissue to maintain his vital forces. Mr. Joe. Gondran, Jr., left for New Orleans on the steamer Gay last Sunday night and is still in the city purchasing goods for the elegant Gondran store. Mr. Oliver Beirne of Virginia, legatee and executor of the estate of the late John Burnside, arrived at Houmas House on the steamer J. M. WhiteThure day night, aecompanied by his wife and Mr. George A. Chiapella. Mr. Beirne and lady will spend the winter on their sugar plantatiQons in this parish and St. James. The remainder of the iron for the Bayou Lafourche bridge arrived here by rail last Tuesday and was transferred from the railroad to the location of the bridge by flatboat. Scaffolding has been built on the piling extending above and below the pier, to facilitate the erection of the iron framework of the bridge, and Capt. Darton, the supervising engineer, expresses the opinion that the structure will be completed in about three weeks from this time. -The opening of this bridge for business will be quite an event in the history of the town and one that will be welcomed by the people. Among the appointments which were not considered by the Senate before adjournment was that of Mr. Louis Lefort to be Postmaster of Donaldson ville. On Monday President Arthur re newed the appointment of Mr. Lefort and as soon as he secures the requisite bond he will qualify and take possession of the office. We are glad to know that the prospective change of Postmasters will not interfere with the status of Mr. J. Rumsey Duke, the polite and com petent young man who has so efficiently performed the duties of Assistant Post master for a long time past. Jos. ARNAUD, SR.-At 3 o'clock last Saturday afternoon Joseph Arnaud, Sr., an old colored citizen of Donaldsonville, expired suddenly while sitting in a chair at Vicknair's store, corner of St. Patrick and Iberville streets. Coroner Vande griff viewed the body and certified that death had been caused by heart disease. Mr. Arnaud was 68 years of age, was a native of New Orleans, bat had lived in Donaldsonville at least half of his life time. He was well known to nearly every man, woman and child in the place and enjoyed the hearty good will and esteem of all, being a man of gentle disposition, kind and courteons always, a true Christian by profession and prac tice and a most devout follower of the Catholic religion. For many years he has had charge of the Catholic cemetery at this place and few Catholics have died here during the past three decades whose tombs and graves have not been closed by his hands or under his directions. He has rendered much service in the capac ity of a sick nurse, and most of our prom inent families have had occasion at various times to profit by his efficient and gentle ministrations in hours of ill ness. He has held several positions of trust in the community, such as Alder man of the town, treasurer of Blue Bucket Fire Company and treasurer of the St. Joseph Benevolent Society, which last position he occupied at the time of his death. A number of child ren, grandchildren and other connections are left to mourn the loss of a kind and faithful progenitor. The funeral, which took place Sunday evening, was hand somely managed under the auspices of 1 the St.-Joseph Society, and was attended by a large concourse of people, attesting the general respect and regret felt for the worthy deceased. Rev. Fathers l Tnppens and Charles conducted the im- 1 pressive ceremonies at the church and ;emetery, and music was furnished by the St. Joseph and Crescent Brass Bands :ombined. The True Friends Benevolent a society were present in force. All who Lesembled around the last resting place ºf the good old man sincerely responded n their hearts to the invocation of the a riest, " lequie,.cat in pace." SDEATH OF SOLOMON WzINSCHWnCX. Last Sunday, at quarter to 12 o'clock M., Mr. Solomon Weinsohenck, one of the oldest merchants of Donaldsonville, and also one of our leading and most re spected citizens, died suddenly at his store and residence on Railroad Avenwe, of apoplexy of the heart. He had been troubled with an affection of the heart for a number of years, and it was to be expected, by those who knew of his ailment, that his death would be sudden, but no one was prepared f9r the news of the event which flashed through town on Sunday. Mr. Weinsehenok was walk ing on the brick pavement in front of his main building when the shook of death struck him, and he fell upon his back without uttering a word and ex pired at once. Deceased was aged 73 years, a native of Kerecheim, Bavaria, and had resided in Donaldeonville 42 years. He leaves an estimable widow bereaved by his loss, to whom the sym pathies of the entire community are ex tended. The funeral took place Monday afternoon at half past 4 o'clock and was very largely attended. Members of the Ascension Hook and Ladder Company and Phenix Fire Company were present in uniform, headed by the St. Joseph Braes Band. Following the firemen were the members of the Hebrew Con gregation of the Temple Bikur Cholim, of which the deceased had long been President, then came a long line of citi zens on foot and in carriages and buggies. Ladies and children thronged the sidewalks, attending the mournful procession to the Jewish burying ground on St. Patriek street, where the remains were consigned to the grave according to the rites of the Hebrew faith. The solemn services were conducted in He brew by Rev. G. Levy, Rabbi of the Congregation Bikur Cholim, who also delivered a beautiful and touching ad dress in ,English. All the principal stores and places of business were closed and the people of the town, of all classes and degrees, united in paying a last sad tribute to the memory of the re spected and honored dead. In anticipation of a grand pow-wow of the so-called Laboring Man's Association which was announced to be held at Blue Bucket Hall last Sunday afternoon, we detailed a reporter to take notes of the proceedings. The following is hisreport, verbatim : " WORINxoxMII's ASSOCIATION, No audience; consequently, no meeting." We commend the document as a model of brevity, worthy of imitation by the average amateur quill-driver, who is never so well pleased with himself as when he can spread six lines of informa tion over half a column of space and ob scure two or three poor little facts in a bushel measure of high sounding senten ces and trite phrases. We understand the leading spirits of the strike move ment-if indeed we are justified in using the plural--claim that there would have been a large mectinlg, but that they de cided it was not advisable to hold it at that time. What reasons are advanced for the decision we have not heard. Messrs. W. H. Green and J. M. Vance, two well known young colored men from New Orleans, came up on the Natchez Satur day night for the purpose of addressing the expected assemblage, but their servi ces were not called into requisition and they returned to the city 1,y Sunday evening's train. It has been announced that a parish convention will be held here to-morrow to effect an organization of the association, and that a mass-meet ing will be set for an early day at which Messrs. Vance and Green will be asked to speak. From all parts of the parish we hear that the solid, sensible and in telligent colored men are repudiating the miscalled laborers' movement and will not be so easily duped, fooled out-of their money and made catspaws of for giving political influence to men who can not attain it in a legitinate manner. Not withstanding the pretensions to the contrary, the failure of last Sunday's projected meeting is generally regarded as a forerunner of the collapse of the entire fraudulent scheme. FIREMEN'S BALL.-Although the at tendance at the ball given by Ascension Hook and Ladder Company last Satur day night was by no means so large as was expected, those who were present enjoyed themselves greatly and the en tertainment was conducted in a highly creditable manner. Dancing was kept up until after midnight, to music fur nished by the Centennial String Band. Mr. Emanuel Bercier, who had charge of the supper room, conducted that depart ment in his usual first-class style. The young men who had the management of the affair, appreciating that the unfa vorable weather and the opening of the grinding season militated against the complete success of the ball, propose to try it again at a more auspicious time. Last Saturday evening an unknown white man, apparently about 40 years of age, was taken suddenly ill while stand ing in front of the store of Messrs. B. Lemann & Bro., corner Mississippi street and Crescent Place. He fell to the side walk and had several attacks of parox yasms resembling fits, remaining there in an unconscious condition until removed by order of the Mayor to the house of old Jim Warfield, who undertook the care of the afflicted stranger. Efforts to re vive the patient proved unavailing and he died during the night of Monday. On Tuesday the Coroner viewed the body and gave a certificate that death was caused by pernicious congestive fever. No clue to the identity of the deceased has been reported. He was evidently an Irishman and a laborer. A CARD.
