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.

fellow was that got kicked by a Baton

That the-.sest of the boys know who it
was and Shanlsa' ignorance doesn't fool

That the playful tiger has struck town
again and will snatch the capillary sub

That the festive beast doesn't intend
to let his competitor, the strike associa

man's spare dollars.
That the elongated youth objeeti to
the insinuation that he boasted of hav

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

That even sturdy Fritr" is dubious as
to whether he will be able to stand dot

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

That it's fortunate heo has plenty of

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.
