TH[ BABY SHOW.
The big Baby Show which has been
talked of so much during the past week
is now in full blast at the Nemo Thea
ter. There have already been entered
quite a good many babies, and in fact
the number of contestants will far ex
ceed the expectations of the manage
ment. All these little prize-winners'
pictures are being thrown on the
screen at every performance at the
Nemo and this gives the friends of the
little ones an opportunity to give the
applause that the little ones so well
The contest is to be decided by votes
and each admission to the Nemo is en
titled to one vote. These votes are
deposited in a box which is placed in
a very convenient place and once each
week these votes will be counted and
the results made known.
Besides allowing one vote for each
paid admission, the Nemo family tick
et will be good for an additional fifty
votes in the following manner: A fam
ily ticket to the Nemo gives 30 admis
sions for $1.00; this of course carries
with it 30 votes. Now, besides these
30 votes there will be given with each
family ticket an extra 50 votes. This
will give an excellent opportunity for
the workers to get out and hustle for
their little baby friends.
The contest, which was opened only
a few days ago, will be extended until
March 30th. This gives everyone an
opportunity of hustling for votes. Re
member the family ticket. If you want
to gain votes for your candidate, buy
a family ticket; they cost less than
the regular paid admission, and you
gain 50 votes for each ticket pur

the best w~reel ife.tuares ever pre,

"Whitey" Sends Floral Reminders to
His Friends in Municipal
Prom a bootblack in 1901 to the pro
prietor of a large floral establishment
in Chicago and the owner of stock in
two big corporations is "going some."
It is the record of Louis Hoeckner,
George Perrier, clerk of the Com
mission Council, received Thursday by
express from Hoeckner a large box,
Alled with handsome American beauty
roses and pink curnations. A letter
came also, and it was a revelation.
The missive explained that Mayor
Behrman, when a memberof the board
of assessors; George Ferrier, C. Drl
coill, Captain Tom Campbell and Harry
L. Seuase gave Hoeckner a joint letter
of recommendation which proved the
genesis of his career. It was by the
means of this letter, given him In 1901,
that he secured a position with the
Illinois Central, remaining with the
railway four years.
After leaving the railroad Hoeckner
went to work for a florist and fnally
established a big nursery of his own
at 1515 Clybourne street, Chicago. He
made money end invested it in stock
of large corporations.
From 1897 to 1901 Hoeekner was a
bootblack at the City Hall and shined
the shoes of Mpyor flower and other
city oecals. He says in his letter to
Mr. Perrier that he has not forgotten
the kindness of those here who attest
ed his good charcter. Hoeckner's
box contained several dosen roeeas and
many carnations to be distributed
among those who signed the letter.

Mrs Hartman Re
ported A Suicide
FRIENDS ON WAY TO WAKE
When Mrs. Victor Hartman of 500
Belleville street came to the Herald
office on Wednesday morning she was
an angry woman and did not mince
her words in denouncing some of the
gossiping women in reporting that she
had taken poison with suicidal intent.
Mrs. Hartman stated that she was
taken ill on Vallette street Tuesday
morning and was taken to the home
of Mrs. Peter Johnson on Vallette
street, and afterwards removed to her
home where Dr. A. J. Babin attended
her for a case of acute indigestion.
Mrs. Hartman stated in denouncing
these scandal mongers, that she was
reported as having taken poison and
that several people came to the house
for the purpose of attending her wake.
Mrs. Hartman stated there was no
reason for starting such a report as
suicide as she and her husband lived
happily together and have a nice home
and if there had been any thought of
taking poison it would not have been
after the strike, which she and her
husband went through without any
trouble. Mrs. Hartman asked that
The Herald make public her opinion
of her slanderers.
Dr. A. J. Babin, who attended Mrs.
Hartman, stated that he treated her
for a case of acute indigestion.

It seems that J. Bode, a bartender
in Miler's grocery and saloon, at Bmen

sell, and he spoke to Casslen about

wanted to see the revolver. Charles
Smith, a porter, was told to get the
pistol from behind the counter. In
carrying it Smith had £ lager on the
trigger, and as a result of a misstep
he pulled the trigger and the ballet
struck Cassien in the jaw. The bell

MANSON TO BE TRANSFERRED.
In a communication to Congressman
Albert A. Estopinal and H. Garland
Dupre of the First and Second Louisi
ana districts, respectively, Secretary
of the Treasury Franklin McVeagh de
clared that Capt. Harry S. Manson of
the revenue cutter Davey. "in address
ing a public political meeting and
speaking disparagingly of ttnicipal
affairs and municipal officeI, over
stepped the bounds of propriety, and
this department looks with disfavor
upon such procedure."

Secretary McVeagh adds, "that in
structions will be issued directing Ir.
Manson to hold himself in readiness
for assignment to duty at another sta

Formal Complaint Made.
The two New Orleans congressmen
called the attention of the Treasury
Department to the conduct of Captain
Manson, and his transfer to Baltimore,
to be second in command of the reve
nue cutter Guthrie, followed an in
vestigation by Federal officials. Sec
retary McVeagh's letter thoroughly
negatives the statement made by Cap

reported in the morning papers Thurs
day that his political utterances had
nothing whatever to do with his trans

"1. That during the month of Sep
tember last there was quite a heated
municipal campaign in the city of New
Orleans, involving the selection of
nominees for mayor and city commis
sioners in a Democratic primary on
October 1, 1912. In the course of that
campaign Master's Mate H. S. Man
son, U. 8. R. C. S., attached to the
revenue cutter Davey at New Orleans,
addressed a political meeting, ardent
ly championing certain candidates for
these omces, and using very intemper
ate language, including a charge of
graft against the members of the board
of commissioners (dock board), who
are vested with general supervision of
the river front of the port of New Or
leans, and who were not involved, di
rectly or indirectly, in the campaign.

of the silence of Mr. Kernaghan and
his associates, Mr. Manson, as a gov

proprieties in enaging in a local po.

ably, if not in his original address
(which he says was reported nlaerol

just as offensive as his reported first
remarks) insinuated, if not charged.

GEORGE WAS FROM MISSOURI.
When George Brunssann was told
that a man could be tied to a post with
out rope, chain or any other article
except his legs to hold him in that
position and with his arms tree, he
was so skeptical that he declared that
he was from Missouri. Jt was Captain
Manson who was willing to show Mr.
Brunssann that the trick could be done
and within a very short time after
ward Mr. Bruanssann realized that it
was possible and there thp Joke should
have ended, but it was carried on, in
our opinion, too far, which resulted in

cruiicism which was given much space
in our city papers, also involving the
police and at length there was a ques
tion of veracity all along the line. We
will say in Mr. Brunssann's favor that
he was game in so far as submitting
himself to the task of being tied.
As to the misunderstanding with the
police, there have been a good many
reports. As it is very evident that
the entire affair was a practical Joke
we believe that it should be treated
so and there let the matter rest. We
again want to congratulate our friend
George on being game to the core, or
might we say being inquisitive to the
extent of embarrassment.
