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 deserve. 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 chased. "The Cowboy Millionaire," one of the best w~reel ife.tuares ever pre, duced, which has been advertised for some time, will be shown at the Nemo on February 28th.

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.

POLICEMAN SHOT, Policeman Cassilen, one of the best bluecoats of the force, was shot and severely wounded in the right jaw yesterday afternoon by an aceidental shot. It seems that J.

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 ranged upward and it may prove a serious wound. The poleeman could not talk as a result bf his hart. 8mith was arrested and held for shootlag and wounding, pending a farther invest gation of the ease. HAND INJURED. Proft.

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." I have the honor to inform you," Secretary McVeagh adds, "that in structions will be issued directing Ir. Manson to hold himself in readiness for assignment to duty at another sta tion in tle near future." 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 tain Manson Wednesday evening and reported in the morning papers Thurs day that his political utterances had nothing whatever to do with his trans fer The letter follows: "Treasury Department, "Washington, Feb. 6, 1913. "Hon. Albert A. Estopinal, House of Representatives; lion. H. Garland Dupre, House of Representatives: 'Gentlemen "The department acknowledges re ceipt of your letter of the 30th ultimo, wherein you submit a complaint as follows : "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. "2. That shortly thereafter in a let ter to the newspapers of New Orleans, notably the New Orleans Times-Demo crat, Mr. Manson denied the correct ness of the newspaper accounts of his address. That the board of commis sioners, through its president, Wm. A. Kernaghan, brought the matter to the attention of the revenue cutter ser vice. "3. That IMr. Manson was called up. on for an explanation. That he sub mitted the same, accompanying it with a letter of explanation and disclaimer. That Mr. Kernaghan was advised of the nature of Mr. Manson's letter, but so far as you know has not indicated whether or not it does JustUce to him and his associates. Tranoended Proprieties. "You further submit that-rekardless of the silence of Mr. Kernaghan and his associates, Mr. Manson, as a gov ernment employe stationed tempofarl ly in a port, transcended all of the proprieties in enaging in a local po. litical contest, and that he unquestion ably, if not in his original address (which he says was reported nlaerol rectly), certainly in his alleged dis claimer (which in your Judgment is just as offensive as his reported first remarks) insinuated, if not charged. that there was graft in the workings and operations of the Dock Board, and that he should be subjected to some disciplining at the hands of his odicial suporiors. urther, that he should not be allowed with impanlty, sad with the pruestige of his ofeial employment behind him, to engage in local political eonteste, and permitted to make wild and unfounded refloections upon the honesty of local omcials.

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 CONFIDENCE IN THE DUGAN PLAN Its our blugest busines asset.

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.
