TAFT MAY GIVE AID TO STATION. T
W'ashington, Aug. 8.-The force con- a
ducting the campaign for the preser
vation of the New Orleans Naval Sta
tion and dry dock received a new re
cruit to-day. He is the President of
the United States.
Mr. Taft promised Representative
Broussard that he would intervene in
the matter to the extent that he would
investigate to ascertain whether Sec
retary Meyer's actions, looking to the
destruction of the Naval Station, are
justified by economic or other reasons.
The question also of injustice to the
commercial interests of New Orleans
and the Misaissippi Valley will be con
sidered. Mr. Broussard told the Presi
dent that any action by the Federal
government tending to jeopardise the
permanency of the Mississippi river
channel is a blow at every industry in
the Mississippi valley.
Mr. Taft will write a letter to Mr.
Broussard on the subject as soon as
he has concluded his Investigation.
The letter will be sent to the Con
gressman's home in Louisiana, as Mr.
Broussard expects to leave Washing
ton to-night, to continue work in con
nection with his senatorial campaign.
MORE MARINES GO.
Four more marines have been or
dered away from the Algiers Barracks.
They left Wednesdya for Key
West Fla. The order was received
Tuesday, and preparations were
made to execute it. This brings the
number detailed here to thirty-one, the
lowest it has been in some months. It
was impossible for those in command
to say whether any men would be sent
here in answer to the recent request
of Captain Purcell, who was following
THE COMING BALL PLAYER.
Wm. Salathe, who has already made
quite a reputation as a ball player, is
beginning to attract the attention of
the professionals with the good work
he has been doing. On Sunday last in
a game of ball at McDonoghville Park,
he won the game for his club, winning
by ascore of 2 to 1. He did not allow
his opponents a single hit This is a
very good record for a young boy and
he is to be congratulated upon his ssc
COMMENDS POLICEMEN. M
Inspector Praises Corporal Bengert
and Patrolman Gentile.
In a message to all pirecinct stations o
and the detective office. Police Inspec- r;
tor J.1. W. tieynolds yesterday com- d
mended the work of t'orporal Bengert n
and Patrolnman Gentile of the Eighth oI
Precinct Sta'ion in the capture of the fi
negro burg!'r, Leslie Getrich, Sunday ti
"It gave me great pleasure this ca
morning to learn of their perform- ('
antce," the message read in part. "It ci
shows the activity of these two offi rN
(ers, and the courageous manner in It
which they pursued the negro under o
the house at Atlantic avenue and Eliza tl
street, is highly commended by me, (
and shows that they considered duty ti
above all things and at the opportune ri
moment were not lax in that duty. I
trust their action will we an incentive fl
to all other members of the force to ci
be on the alert and endeavor to cap- n
ture evil-doers. If such is the case we T
will soon rid our commnunity of such t:
undesirable characters. Commanding Ih
officers will read this at morning ant:
evening roll calls."
Leslie Getrich robbed the residence
of James Foster. 535 Elmira avenue,
of jewelry valued at about $40), Sun
day night. Discovered by Mr. Foster, h
he made his escape, taking the booty
with him. The chase attracted the at
tention of the two police officers, andi
they pursued him to a house at Atlan
tic avenue and Eliza street, where he -%
took refuge under the house. There I'
he showed fight, and each officer tired
upon him, following him under the
house. Getrich then surrendered. At
the station he complained of being
shot in the leg, and was sent to the
Charity Hospital. Here the surgeons
said he was not shot, and he was re
turned to the station. Yesterday he
made a statement implicating two
other negroes in the burglary, Royal
Barnes and William Freeman, both re
siding at 531 Elmira avenue. Both
Progressive J. W. Gilbert, the genial
vice-president and general manager of
the D. H. Holmes Co., Ltd., has added
to that great establishment one of the
prettiest dining rooms in the South,
and he is to be congratulated upon his
enterprise, and to say that it will be
a success is only to forecast what hps
been the result of mA.ay other of his
improvements made during his tr
gime. Of the restaurant it is said to
be easily one of the largest and most
artistic refreshment parlors of any
store in the South. The room faces
the Dauphine street entrance of the
large store, and measures about one
hundred feet square.
The room is well-lighted, cool and
sanitary in every respect. At one end
of the room across from the platform
reserved for the*orchestra, is the
handsome Mexican onyx and mosaic
soda fountain, which is about forty
feet long, and a handsomely executed
piece of work. Several valuable art i
studies in stained glass may be viewed
in the background.
Every precaution has been taken to
make the fountain strictly sanitary. E
Numerous electric lights, giving forth s
a subdued glow rest near the marble f
pillars, which divide the background a
into sections. Several chandelier a
lights encircled by glass pendants re- a
ilect the gleam of the lights overhead r
fro'tm the upper portion of the foun- c
tain. A stream of perfumed water c
lows from a large and nandsome piece c
of statuary in the center of the room. I
The soda fountain is at one end of the I
big room. I
Numbers of ferns and growing
plants are scattered about the room in
an artistic manner. The room is esti
mated to have a seating capacity of
about two hundred. From 12 to 2 and
from 3:30 to 4:30 o'cloclk each day an
orchestra under Prof. Tosso's direc
tion plays selections.
INeither time nor expense has been
spared to make this ladies' refresh
ment room the nmost modern and con
venient of its kind to be found any
where. The management caters espe
clally to women and children, and al
though no announcement was made of
the opening last Monday, the shoppers
were quick to find and appreciate the
comfort of the service. A large force
has been remodeling and putting the
department into up-to-date shape for
the pest month.

MARINE BARRACKS SAFE ANY
HOW, UNLESS MEYER
Lieut. Thomas Thresher, who suc
ceeds Captain Purcell as commanding
officer of the marine corps at the Biar
racks, in Algiers, has reported for
duty and seems impressed with his
new post. Mr. Thresher is a native
of Houston, Tex., and is regarded as a
fine officer. lie came from the I'nited
States ship Georgia.
Before leaving the city Captain 1Pur- '
cell addressed letters to the Marine
('orp<, stressing the importance of in
creasing the number of mien at the
reservation from thirty-seven to at
least fifty, although he expressed the,
opinion that there should be nio less
than teighty marines in the IBarracks.
Captain I'urcell did his best to hel p
the property, and his departure was
The Marine Corps instructed the of
fieers to prepare requisitions for the
Scoming winter, and they have been
made ready and will be sent forward.
This indicates that there will be a de
tachment of marines kept in Algiers at
least for another year.
