FRANCOIS A. DANIELS,
Honored Algiers Octogenarian, Called
to His Reward.
Francois A. Daniels, one of the old
est residents of Algiers, died Saturday
night at the family residence, 241 Oli
vier street. lie was born in Paris,
France. 81 years 11 months ago, but
had resided here for seventy years.
Mr. Daniels had been ailing for the
past five weeks, but it was not thought
seriously, consequently his death was
a great shock to the community.
Mr. Daniels is survived by three
sons, Frank A. Daniels, who has been
a prominent figure in steamship and
business circles for many years; A. S.
Daniels, an established iron worker
and blacksmith in Algiers, and Joseph
Daniels, who is superintendent of the
Alg'ers branch postoffie. Mrs. Daniels:
who was Miss Mary Leddy, also
mourns his loss.
Mr. Daniels has been identified with
all the movements for the advance of
Algiers, and he was never found want
ing. His career has been a long and
honorable one, and his death will be
regretted by his large circle of friends.
The funeral was held at 3 o'clock
Sunday afternoon. Services were con
ducted by Rev. J. M. Venry and Rev.
R. M. Brown of the Methodist church,
of which he had been a constant fol
lower for many years. The interment
wag in Greenwood cemetery.
The remains were followed by proba

ever seen in Algiers and the many
beautiful floral designs gave mute evi
dence of the love and esteem in which

A few years ago Mr. Daniels, with
his estimable wife, celebrated their l
golden wedding, and friends from far
and near came to the home in Algiers
to do honor to the man who had come c
to them in their hours of distress and
who had prayed for them in the quiet
of their homes. The Influence of his
pious life will live in the hearts of all
with whom he came in contact; "being C
dead he yet speaketh," and his good 3
works will follow him. b
REAL TWO-LEGGED RAT.
One of the most curious freaks of
nature was captured a few nights ago
by Philip Haag, at his grocery store in
Pacific and Homer streets. For a few
nights Mr. Haag noticed a large rt in
his place, which walked quite differ
ently from the ordinary rat and after
paying special attention to the freak ti
it was noticed that the rat had no fore B
legs and that it walked erect Just like al
a person. Several attempts were r,
made to catch it and they were sue- s
cessful Friday night when the little cl
rodent was captured and trapped. It sa
was brought to The Herald office for ci
examination. There was no evidence bi
at all on the front part of the body ei
where there had ever been any legs. ti
Another peculiar feature of the rat pt
was that there was a hole in its neck a,
about the extent of the width of a half tc
dollar. This opening was not a wound fa
as it was perfectly healed and con- t;
taled futar on the inside as well as the
outside. The rat was kept for several
days and was shown to many people in
0o SITE PURCHASED
p' JOHNSON IRON WORKS ACQUIRE
la- OLD SITE OF SOUTHERN MA.
te SAID TO HAVE
Our citizens here were all astir a
few days ago after they read quite a
long article in one of our morning pa
d pers, wherein the Johnson Iron Works
had purchased a site on this side of
the river to locate their entire plant,
and upon investigation it was found
that the Johnson Iron Works had ac
y quired a site, and it has not been deft
nitely decided when they would move
s, their plant here.
The sale was made by Ramsey &
le Danziger and the price is said to have
ht been $26,000.
as Just as soon as the rumored report
was given sufficient credit, President
ee Lennox of the Improvement Associa
n tion called a special meeting at which
id a committee was appointed to wait on
S. the Johnson Iron Works to assure
er them of the moral support of our citi
)h zens in general should they desire to
te purchase property in our district.
Is Now that this subject has again been
so brought to the minds of our citizens,
they will readily recall the several
th fights of the Southern Marine Works
of and Dominick Prolicher, who runs a
t- harness shop adjoining the old South.
id ern Marine Works. Mr. Prolicher
)e brought suit against the Southern Ma
. rine Works, stating that the place was
a nuisance and was given judgment in
n. one of the courts. A short time after
v. this decision the Southern Marine
W, Works became a thing of the past and
,l- many skilled mechanics who were giv
It en employment there, were compelled
to seek positions elsewhere. It is un
a- derstood that Louis Coleman, who
Is owns about ten lots of ground and the
,y batture in the square In which is lo
1. cated the old Southern Marine Works,
h has offered his property at a less price
s than it originally cost him. We get
this informatiqp from very good au
r. thority and after an investigation into
. the matter.
in We are also informed, by very good I
authority, that the Johnson Iron Works I
is have not purchased option on the Kop- I
y pel property on Patterson street, nor (
e have they closed any .deal whatsoever o
ir n real estate, except for the Southern I
Is Marine Works plant.
When the big works are moved to
h thid side of the river it will give I
Ir steady employment to many skilled
r mechanics .and laborers and will add
materially to the weekly pay roll of C
e our district.
d The following committee has been
appointed to wait on Johnson Iron
s Works to offer moral support and good p
will to locate in our district: Prank
SC. Duvic, Julius Bodenger, Martin S.
Mahoney, J. P. Vezien, George Her
bert, Jr., George Koppel and Dr. C. V.
Kraft. This committee will meet the
Johnson people this morning at 10 o'- d
clock at the plant on Patterson and 0
Olivier streets. k

C the mayor's parlors between Mayor P
IBehrman, Commissioners Thompson a
Sand Lafaye and City Engineer Hardee F
!relative to making preparation for the tl
Ssale of the Third District ferry fran- fc
chise, which it was decided some time ti
Ssince should be sold. A lengthy dis- tc
Scusslon of the subject was gone into,
Sbut it was finally decided that the city ti
engineer shall prepare the specifica

the Algiers Hibernians to deliver the
sermon, when all of the divisions and
the Ladies' Auxiliary, together 'with
the county and other ofdicials, will at

will ma;ke the trip especialry to speak to
oe that occasion will be of more than
pausing Interest The bishop is in
thorough accord with the spirit that

CONFERENCE TO-DAY. ha
The citizens of the lower Coast who wl
have been asking for the improvement [
of the road to Stanton plastione wlll ha

morning at 11 o'clock. ' L

t the Third District ferry franchise.
It has been made known that the
(;rand Isle people would be prospect
, e bidders for this franchise on (r
d tain conditions and it was at this con
ference that some of these conditions
R were spoken of. It is understood that
e they would like to have the franchise
read for twenty-five years instead of
fifteen years, and that instead of the
present price for the franchise to be
paid to the city of New Orleans in a
lump sum. that it would be sold on a
percentage of the annual gross re

h chise contain clauses calling for dou

e would go from the ferry houses di

FORMER PROMINENT CITIZEN EX.
PIRES IN CALIFORNIA.
Information was received here Fri.
day from San Francisco of the death
of P. J. Maguire, formerly a well
known and prominent citizen of New
Orleans. Mr. Maguire died at San
Francisco Friday morning, but there -
were no particulars of his death. He
left New Orleans some years ago to
make his home in California. Mr. Ma
gulre was connected with the Morgan's .
Louisiana & Texas railway for thirty- a
three years and for some time occu- c
pied the ofices of master car builder d
and superintendent of the buildings.
For some years, during the building of ,
the railroad, he was confidential agent ,
for Charles Whitney. He had no rela- k
tives in New Orleans, but was known b
to a wide circle.
For many years Mr. Maguire was
the president of the Eureka Home.
stead Association, one of the oldest
and largest in the city, and during that
period he was a prominent figure in t
homestead affairs. The news of his
death was received by Perry S. Bene
Mr. Maguire was a resident of Al
giers for several years. He and Capt.
M. A. Morse were two of the legatees
of A. C. Hutchinson and upon his de
mise were the recipient each of $25,- -
000 under his last will and testament.
DRY SWEEPING OF FERRIES TO
Dr. Wm. T. O'Riley, the head of the
City Board of Health, will no doubt
find much support in his new ordi
nance in opposition to dry sweeping,
and we on this side of the river are
especially interested in this ordinance
for the fact that we believe it will
have some effect in preventing the
continual dry sweeping of the ferries
which operate in the Canal street
trade. It seems to be the delight of
the poorlyclad negroes on the boats to
sweep the dust off the decks just
about the time most of the young la
dies are on their way to work in the
morning. Many times The Herald
has called attention to tis dry sweep
ing nuisance, practiced especially on
the boats of the Canal street ferry,
where thoesands of people cross daily.
We trust that the new ordinance will
have special reference to the public
trmasportatioa compeanles, where this
uslsace becomes a real danger.
