r WHITE NOT MALICIOUS IN CIRCU- t
e LATING REPORT. c
s After practically deciding that M. J.
White of Algiers, charged with mak
o ing false statements regarding the
e financial condition of the Interstate
e Bank and Trust Company, was not
s guilty, Judge Chretien of the Criminal s
District Court agreed, upon request of
the district attorney, to withhold his
decision until the prosecutor can sub- t
r mit further authorities, in which he I
e hopes to show that White's act in do
ing what he did was a malicious one. I
It was shown by the testimony ad- t
d duced Friday morning that White was I
il told by Mr. Whiting of the plumbing i
s firm of Borum & Whiting, of Howard t
avenue and Carondelet street, of an ad
a verse report about the bank. White,
e- believing that this was reliable infor
n matlon, coming as it did from a busi- 1
ness man of Mr. Whiting's standing,
n' immediately telephoned to his mother
Dl in-law and to two of his friends, to get
' their money out of that bank.
- Judge Chretien held that White did
what any other man would have done,
and that the law did not cover such act.
"The law says that a person must cir
culate broadcast, with malice and with
a view of injuring a b'ank, false and
malicious rumors concerning its fnan- 1
cial condition, but I see nothing in the
evidence to show that the defendant
was guilty under the law," said Judge
As it was very apparent that Judge
Chretien was about to decide in favor
of the defendant, District Attorney
Adams arose and, addressing the court,
said: "Will your Ihonor withhold your
decision until I can submit a brief giv
ing authorities to show that the de
fendant's act is covered by the law"'
The court agreed to withhold its de
cision until Mr. Adams can submit hid

ATTENDS SILVER JUBILEE.
Rev. Father Thos. J. Larkin left for
Salt Lake City, Utah, and at the time
of his leaving it was reported that
Father Larkin had been transferred
and that he would be succeeded here
shortly by another parish priest. This
rumor gained a swift circulation and
his hundreds of friends were thorough
ly alarmed over the matter. Inquiry
- at the Presbytery, however, brought
out the fact that Father Larkin had
left for Salt Lake City, to be present
at the Silver Jubilee of All Hallow
College, over which he presided for
eight years as its presideat The 1Sth

On next Sunday. June 2, 1912, there it

I'ntil the present time the resouru' Is
from the Poor Box, contributions from o
niellbers, from plenny parties and othi k
or entertainments have been adequate g
to meet our wants, but owing to sick- s
ness and increased demands, our f!nds k
have become exhausted and hence our w
appeal. We investigate all destitute s
or needy families reported to us, and n
if found worthy, we assist them, irre- h1
spec.tive of race or religion. They are p
visited weekly, and whenever possible y
we do all we can to secure employ- t

The works of the Society are purely i
those of charity, and its rewards pure
ly spiritual. Humility is demanded by
its rule, and the practice thereof is ex
pected of its members. a
It has no badegs, no banners, no
parades, no fixed dues, no material pen
alties, and hence avoids and discoun
tenances public notoriety of its works. I
If it were possible to give you a vis
ual demonstration of the amount of
good being done; if we could show
you the condition or many whom we
assist daily; if you could see the smile
of gratefulness, and hear the prayer
of thankfulness, as we do, we are (er
tain that you gentle reader, would t'e
come a regular weekly contributor.
You would at least know that you
were being remembered in the pray
ers of the poor, and you would have
the satisfaction of knowing that you
were contributing to the assistance of
some poor mortal less blessed with
the goods of this world than yourself.
Now, kind reader, the Conference of l
the Holy Name of Mary, respectfully ;
makes this appeal to you, in behalf
of the poor, to assist with your mite
in the collection next Sunday, and
those who otherwise would like to as
sist, or would desire any information
regarding the Society may call on any
officer or member, who are at any time
ready to meet them.
The Conference also has a Ladies'
Auxiliary which has been assisting for
the past two years in attending the
poor families assigned to them, in vis
iting and assisting the sick, clothing
children, contributing to its success
financially and otherwise.

FOR IMMIGRATION STATION.
The New Orleans Immigration Sta
tion is a victim of the circumlocution
of officials, but it will be freed from it
t if Representatives Dupre and Estopi
nal have the power, and they hope they
have. Mr. Dupre introduced a bill ap
propriating $14,500 to provide water, a
Ssewerage system, fences and a landing
Sstage for the station. At the same
time he and his colleague joined in
Sletters to Chairman Fitzgerald of the
SAppropriation Committee and Secre
- tary Nagel, pointing out that unless
the necessary things mentioned in the
- bill are provided for at this session of
f Congress the station will be handi
capped, if not absolutely useless, for
twelve or eighteen months after its
buildings have been finished.
At present the subject is in the twi
Slight sone. Assistant Secretary Ca
Sbel,, who has immediate charge of im
migration stations, says he will not
Ssubmit a formal estimate asking for
- that money until next December, which
will be two months after the station is
finished. When Mr. Cabell gave the
SNew Orleans Congressmen that answer,
a short time ago, they went to Chair
S man Fitzgerald, asking him to ask Ca
I bell for such an estimate, Cabell hav
I Ing said that only under such condi
tions would he send in an estimate be
Sfore next December. Fitzgerald an
Iswered their representations on that
point by saying it is not the policy of
the committee to force the executive
departments to make estimates for
things they do not want. He flatly de
dined, and that was the status when
Mr. Dupre put in his bill.
r Commissioner Redfern submitted an
e estimate calling for the expenditure of
Smore than 4100,000 to put the station
d in first-class condition, but when he
e was told that such a sum could not be
5 had he put in an estimate for the
i things he simply could not do without,
t- and the estimate of $14,500 was the
Y result. The New Orleans Congress
t men propose to get that money or
i know why they cannot have it.

ITEM ARTICLE WITHOUT FOUN
During the week the Item published
a report regarding the establishment
here of the Anheuser-Busch Brewery,
having it as a rumor that the well
known St. Louis concern would, in all
probability take over the plant of the
Security Brewing Company. It seems
that the newspaper article in itself
discredits the Item, for the fact that
they quote the vice-president of the
Anheuser-Busch Association as deny
ing emphatically that the brewery con
templates any such action.
In an interview with The Herald,
Mr. Zach Tinker, president of the Se
curity Brewing Co., stated that the
report is without any foundation what- t
ever; that there never have been any (
negotiations toward the purchase of ,
the brewery, that their firm is here to ,
stay and to continue to turn out the 1
famous product from the west bank ,
of the river. The Security Brewing
Company's plant at present employs i
t about 65 Algiers people, and as we
f look upon this industry as one of our i
staple institutions, we should also,
I when opportunity presents, give it a
boost insofar as encouraging the home
patronage. Many of our saloons are
' purchasing their beer from breweries
a located on the other side of the river,
but we look to the Security Brewing
i' Company to spend their money for em
r ployes and material on this side, with
e us. Yet, most of our saloon merchants
'- do not reciprocate in this trade. Pat
g ronizing home industry is boosting our
s own game, and the sooner we get busy
along this line the better off we will
The members of the Orleans Levee
ý Board made a trip of inspection Tues
a day on the levee on the Algiers side
of the river, from the Canal street
ferry landing down to Shamrock, ten
miles below, in automobiles. A great
deal of emergency high water repair
a work has been done in that direction
Sduring the several weeks past, such as
Sstopping crawfisah and muskrat holes,
raising the levees with washboards
e and in other ways. Besides, there is a
deal of levee work to be done on that
stretch as soon as the water is suffi
ciently low to permit, and the board
Sdesires to have some idea as to just
what will be necessary.
a The dredgeboat which has been em
ployed for the purpose of securing
Searth on the Algiers si4e with which
to build up the levees, has been con
tinued in service, but will also soot

will need it at an early day and will

r, NO SIDE IANES FOR CITY'S FIRE
Members of the fire department have
1- been prohibited from pursuinlg any
Savocation other than that of firemen.
r- Chief PuJol in speaking of the sub
t ject Friday said:
f "Complaints of various kinds have
e come to my ofice relative to firemen
r peddling jewelry and engaging in out
B- side work, and after investigating the
n subject I concluded that the discipline
of the department will be best sub
n served by prohibiting any member of
tf the department engaging in other work
n and serving the public except in the
Le strict line of his duties.
S"While I should personally be very
ie glad to see any of the firemen make as
t, much money as they possibly can hon
io estly, still I do not think it is good
* policy to permit them to engage in
,r outside work. The duties of a fireman
are serious and exceedingly important
and the taxpayers have a right to de
mand his full time and service. No
man can well engage in seteral enter
prises when serving the public in the
It capacity of a fire fighter. I am confiL
