The little lad's body was interred in St. Vincent De Paul's cemetery, after Rev. A. J. Schllesser of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, had recited a solemn service. e Little John Bengert was four years old. The child had been almost a crip- f ple from birth, and because of this J fact won friends by the thousands. His father and mother expended great sums to cure him of his affliction t and just when their hopes seemed I about realized the little fellow was taken down with pneumonia, and pass ed into the great beyond. Four of the little boys of the Luth eran Church acted as pallbearers at I his funeral. YOUNG EAGLES.

WILL GUARD RIVER MOUTH. Adequate provision for the protection of the mouth of the Mississippi, which means the whole Mississippi Valley, it is a moral certainty will be made in the naval appropriation bill that will be reported as soon as the legislative, executive and judicial appropriation bill, now before the House, is out of the way. The Estopinal amendment adopted by the committee, appropriat ing $1,200,000 for two submarines to' be stationed so as to protect the Pass es, is not the only item that will be carried in the bill looking to the de fense of the river's mouth. Gen. Estopinal, after conferences with Secretary Meyer, Chairman Pad gett, and others especially interested, decided to offer an amendment when the bill is under consideration in the House providing $1,000,000 for a suite able submarine tender, the station of which, it will be understood tacitly, will be in the Gulf. Without a tender the submarines cannot be used to the t best advantage. In the preceding appropriation bill an allowance of $500,000 for the con struction of a tender was made. Builders were asked to submit bids for its construction, but they declined, be t cause, as they said, a ship of the kind desired by the Navy Department could not be built for any sucu sum as that. r Chairman Padgett will not oppose I Gen. Estopinal's amendment. He pre fers, however, that it be offered after the bill is taken up in the House rath er than in the committee. Secretary Meyer will supply the New Orleans member with data showing the neePs sity for such i ship and the absolutely useless character of the submarines 1 unless a tender for their care and re i pair is provided. It will not be necessary for the ten e der to be stationed at New Orleans, because the submarines which it is proposed shall perform the services 1. that forts perform for other ports will not need repairs constantly. Some re e pairs to the submarines can be made in the floating dry dock, which, in view of the fact that both Army and Navy Department officials now understand that forts cannot protect the mouth of - the r'ver, is not likely to be removed, n even if Secretary Meyer had the au thority. It is probable that when the navy figures out plans for the proper de fense of the great waterway four sub marines will be stationed at New Or Sleans-that is, they will be assigned to cruise up and down the river between E the city and the Passes. They natur ially will be more at New Orleans than down at the Passes, because salt wa E ter has a deleterious effect upon the steel hulls. Wherever they are, how Sever, it will be understood that they are not part of the seagoing fleet, but Swere provided primarily because it is Simpossible to erect forts at the Passes or to station floating batteries at that Spoint sufficient to supplement the forts miles above the mouth. SHENNESSY PROTEPTS SEAT OF SEN. CHRISTY. Senator L. D. Beale, of East Baton Rouge, presented in the sgnate the pro test of Wmin. J. Hennessy against the seating of Senator W. T. Christy, who was declared elected over the protest Sant. The Hennessy protest will go to the new senate combnittee on quallfi cations and election when appointed. Ex-Senator Hennessy filed through Mr. Beale a strong brief in behalf of a decree to declare him the senator-elect from the Seventh senatorial district. SWhile the Hennessy contest has been passed on by the courts, the senate is Sreally the sole judge of the qualifca tions of its members, and Mr. Hennes sy hopes to move the majority to an Sappreciation of the justice of his claim. He bases his protest largely on the alleged illegal assistance given certain voters in the preparation of their bal lots and declares that in the second precinct of the fifteenth ward he was denied representation. The supreme court has passed on the assistance Sclause of the primary election law, but Mr. Hennessy wants the senate to in K In his brief Mr. Hennessy declares E that the machinery of government fail E ed to provide a remedy for the wrong * he sufered and he calls attention-to S"the ante-election proclamation of the governor of Louisiana and the erronea ous construction put upon the la by Sthe said governor." He asa. that the seat. declare him elected and reject the credentials of Christy. The brief is signed by Caf fery, Quintero, Gidiere and Brumby; James Wilkinson and Richardson and Soule. Mr. Hlennessy declares he has reason to hope for the success of his cause. lie is simply appealing for justice, he says. NO DANGER HERE. I Backwater Around Algiers in About Seven Days-Mayor Behrman Gives Assurance of No Danger. Tie reported break in the levee at Ilymelia, some distance above the Jef ferson parish line, caused another flur ry in Algiers yesterday morning, when it became known for certain that we would get some of the backwater from this crevasse, but Mayor Behrman Sgives out a statement as follows: "There will be no danger from cre vasse water in the Fifth district as we are well protected by a back levee. The engineers in charge have already taken the necessary precautions for closing all of the gaps in placing our levee in good condition. The Southern Pacific Company has also been noti fled to take care of their stretch of levee upon which their tracks are lo cated." Mayor Behrman also stated that the embankment on the outfall drainage canal would also act as a very good levee, requiring only the closing of a few places. The water from this cre vasse will reach our back levee in a ut a week from to-day. ROLL OF HONOR. McDONOGH No. 4 SCHOOL. Scholarship and Deportment.
