The Southern Pacific Benevolent r
Association celebrated its twentieth it
anniversary in fitting style Sunday af- n
ternoon with a parade through the
principal streets of Algiers, followed
by a banquet at the Pythian Hall. The
organization turned out with about 125 it
members in line, leaving the Pythian e
Hall at 4 o'clock and marching out c

Morgan street, into Patterson street,

The banquet was an elaborate one.
Music was discoursed by the Reliance

short talks. Those who spoke were m

The Southern Pacific Benevolent As- tih
sociatlon was organized by the em- si
ployee of the Southern Pacific Com- h
pany who worked on the steamship
wharf, and for a long time was limited of
in its membership to employes of that pr:
,company. The men who were Instru- of
mental in founding the organization,
including Charles Swart, Leonard Frl- tat
dolln, Henry Frazer, John McCormack,
Patty Walters and William Jure,
wanted to afford aid to workingmen iC
who became sick or were injured and ri
had no other support for their fami
lies. The organlzation, after going
through many vicissitudes, has pmr- nr
pered inally, this prosperity dating li

by-laws astipulating only employes of ag
the Southern Pacific Company could e
become members was removed and lin
the public was invited to join. It now Ed
has a membership of nearly 200 and a e
large balance in the bank for relief do,
purposes. ant

president; J. M. McCormack, vice-pres- Tr

I'ndoubtedly all of the candidates will do a certain amount of work to
retain the Naval Station, for the whole Jtate and the Mississippi Valley is
interested in its retention, but it will not be amiss for these candidates to
make a pledge now, so that we may judge in after years as to whether our
public servants have carried out our desires. Let each candidate state in un
mistakable terms just what he proposes to do it elected, not in that vague and
indefinite manner in which the oracles of ancient Greece used to prophecy
events, declaring that it would be good weather if it didn't rain. Let each
candidate specify if he can, in which direction his efforts will be directed, and
then it will be time for the voters of Algiers and that section of Jefferson
parish lying adjacent thereto to revolve in their own minds which man's
methods they believe will be the most effective for good results and cast their
ballots accordingly. The Herald is advocating the cause of no candidate in
this particular instance and is absolutely unbiased in asking the candidates

red in the celebration of the Holy
Communion. In honor of this event
.1 the service was made musical, the

congregation in attendance. In order
to :nake the occasion more memorable
the festal hangings were used and
the altar adorned with fresh flowers,
sign!ficant of the joy that is in our

Alleges Power Plant Machinery Can
not Be Removed Legally.
Determined to block the intentions
of Secretary Meyer to close the Navy
Yard, the subcommittee of the general
a committee to enlist the entire Missis
I sippi Valley in the fight for the reten
tion of the naval station here by tele
graph yesterday sought the advice of
Senator Thornton and Congressman
Estopinal whether to enjoin Secretary
Meyer and subordinate officials from
dismantling the station.
It is understood here that the power
plant of the navy yard will be closed
at the end of the month and that the
machinery, which is now being white
leaded, will be shipped away soon af
terward. The committee says the ma
chinery was provided under specific
appropriation like the dock and can
not be used for any purpose at any
place other than specified in the re
quest for the appropriation. It is on
this that the committee may seek to
invoke the aid of the Federal courts to
prevent the removal of the station.
A copy of the telegram to Senator
Thornton and to Congressman Estop
inal follows: "Understood here that
power plant will be closed at end of
month, and that machinery now being
white-leaded will be .shipped away
soon. Machinery was provided under
specific appropriation like dock. Can
you get confirmation and would you
advise enjoining removal as violation
of law?"
Fears For Power Plant May Be t
Mayor Behrman yesterday received
a telegram from Congressman Estop
inal advising that no definite action
had been taken by the Secretary of
the Navy towards shutting down the
power plant of the naval station, and
the chances are that the power plant
will not be closed. A few days ago
Mayor Behrman learned that in con
nect ion with the reductiot, of the na- a
-al station, instructions had been Is- li
sued to shut down the power plant. c
As this would mean the shutting off of g
the lights, heat and other necessities,
the mayor wired to Congressman Es- a
topinal asking if such instructions had ti
been given or were contemplated, and
to endeavor to have them stopped, as o
it would mean almost the entire ceas- o
ing of operations at the station. The v
mayor felt reassured upon receiving
the reply of Congressman Estopinal.

entirely recovered. He became hos- tl

leans. La. The funeral took place

Last Sunday, Pastor A. Schliesser
delivered his introductory sermon at
Trinity Lutheran church. His text
was: 1 Cor. 2, 2-5. Subject: "I Know
Nothing Among You Save Christ and
Him Crucified." That your faith
stand (1) not In man's wisdom, but
(2) In the power of God. In the
course of his sermon he showed how
faith may stand on man's wisdom and
that such a faith will never save one.
In the second part he shows who
Christ the Crusified is, and the result
of believing in Him places one's faith
in the power of God.

Legs T hat near.
One of the straungest and most au- 11
expected of the uses to which we cout Li
imagine a leg as being put is that of L
an organ of hearing. Yet such seems E
to be oie at least of the functions of
the fore legs in the cricket. On the (
outer side of thle tibia a small oval
space may be seen, in which the strong
armature which covers the rest of the 4
body Is reduced to a thin and mem
branous condition, making thus a sort
of window or drumbhea4. Communi- In
cating with this, inside the leg, are 8:
the ends of a nerve. and it can hardly
be doubted, therefore, that he whole
apparatus constitutes an auditory or

A Curious Boat. m.
According to a Chinese legend, there
lived In Canton 200 years before Christ

the fact that he was able to fashion i:

with rudder, sails. mast and all other m
necessary appurtenances. Moreover,
on the exterior of the boat were en m.
graved various maxlms by Confuciuas. P
Por this masterpiece. It i said, the .
Emperor Tel Fou paid him 1,000 taels.
