MAYOR BEHRMAN PRESENTED
WITH LOVING CUP.
.\ftter four years of f.ithful and har
tnonious service, the Council closed its
career as the othi ial law-making body
of the municipality at thet meelting
fuesday Inight. \aith manyI xprstsions.

prtsented bi th, Iodl to .Mayor lle'ht

elcltacken and \'ice President of the
body ('harles O'Connor, in the form of
handsome silver lo illg cups.
After the formt;ality of the opening of
the deliherations and disposition of the
routine business on mot:on of .ames
Robin. a committee of three was ap
pointed bI the chair to wait on Mayor
llehrman, who was in his parlors, and
invite him to come before the body.
Mr. lMcitacketn appointed Messrs. Ito
bin. ()'('onnor and Ilartson, who escort
ed the mayor to the rdstrum. The
chief executive acknowledged the hon
or by sayintg that a special message he
had sent to the body expressed his
feelings on the occ'asion, both officially
and personally, lie said that time
alone can tell whether the change that
made it necessary for the members of
the Council to step aside was wise or
not, but that never could there have
been a set of men who had been the
means of doing a greater amount of
good for the greatest number of peo
ple. He emphasized the fact that
while they are parting officially there
were not parting as friends, and he
wanted every one to come to the par
lors every time they could and to feel
that they are in the house of a friend.
At the close of these remarks Mr.
Robin took the floor, and in a touching
short talk presented the mayor with a
handsome silver lo ing ('up in the
name of the Council. Among other
things Mr. Robin said: "Your charac
ter, your honesty and your integrity,
Mr. Mayor, have led you at all times
to resist the favors of your friends and
the calumny of your enemies and led
you through the ways that have been
prompted only by the good of the city
and of the people. We know that the
new administration will find in you
what the old has found-a noble, hon
est, courageous leader of simon-pure
democracy, and the head of the best
government that the city of New Or
leans ever has or ever can know. I
desire, in the name of the men who
know and love you, to present you
with this token of their devotion and
loyalty to you as a man and as th?
head of this body and the government
of the people." This was greeted with
a tremendous burst of applause, as
the cup was handed to his honor.
ALHAMBRA BUYS SITE.
Club House to Be Located On Ope
The deal for the purchase of two lots
>f ground in Opelousas avenue at the
intersection of Olivier street, is prac
tically closed and the transfer of the
property will be made soon. These
two lots of ground were formerly own
td by Jos. W. Lennox and were subse
luently purchased by Edw. Caflero,
who erected an airdome on the site.
The buildings on the ground will be
moved away shortly to make room for
the big new club building which wiji
be erected by the Alhambra Gymnastic
Club. The main features of the new
building will be a big swimming tank
rnd an up-to-date gymnasium.
The two old frame buildings in Dela
ronde, between Lavergne and Verret
ttreets, in rear of the Methodist
Church and Dr. Riley property, were
torn down and removed last week,
much to the gratification of residents
In that section. A great portion of the
timber was found to be cypress and in
rood preservation, although near a cen
tury old. A year or so past, the busy
boys when not at school placed signs
on the old buildings, one reading "Hoo
doo-Keep Out." and the other "No
Rooms for Rent.
These removals take away the last
of the plantation property, houses, for
merly belonging to Mrs. Alix Bienve
nue, widow of Barthelemy Duverge,
which she acquired in 1821; confined
within Verret Powder, Mississippi rl
ver and Socrates street on the rear
line, also Bringler street. The old
court house on Villere, now Morgan
street, being at that period and prior
thereto, the home of the Duverges.
POCKETBOOKS IN POSTAL BOX.
Acting Postmaster George V. Puchs
has in his keeping, awaiting claimants,
two pocketbooks containing apparent
ly valuable papers, which were found
by a postman in the mail box at Canal
street and Elk Place, PHriday. One of
the pocketbooks contains, among other
papers, a receipt for rent of a house
at 940 Brooklyn avenue from the Del
mar Realty Company by C. Glglio, and
registration and polltUx receipts in fa
vor of the same person.
Postoffce omfelals are wondering if
the owners of the pocketbooks have
fallen victims to pickpockets or high
waymen, as, Mr. Puchs says, is usually
found to be the case when such arti
clese are found in mail boxers.
