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 bly the largest concourse of friends ever seen in Algiers and the many beautiful floral designs gave mute evi dence of the love and esteem in which the honored and saintly patriarch was held. The pallbearers were Hon. E. T. I Leche,. Hon. Frank Henning, Victor J. 1 Boto, Andreas P. Abaseal, Albion Daniels and Edward H. Daniels. r In the passing away of Mr. Daniels I the citisens of Algiers feel that they I have suffered a distinct loss and the I church, of which he was a charter I member, will find it difficult to fill his I place. 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 J 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 that vicinity. 0o SITE PURCHASED er p' JOHNSON IRON WORKS ACQUIRE la- OLD SITE OF SOUTHERN MA. RINE WORKS-$26,000 te SAID TO HAVE BEEN PAID. 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. ut 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 THIRD DISTRICT FERRY FRAN. 1 r CHISE. r A conference was held last week in tl 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 tions and details under which it is pro- - posed to offer the franchise for sale, p and to present them when completed hi to Commissioners Thompson and La- de faye for consideration and a report to di the commission council. BISHOP GUNN TO SPEAK. of Bishop John E. Gunn, of Natchez, Miss., has accepted the invitation of 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 tend mass at the Church of tlhe Holy Name . Mary, Sunday, March 16th. Bishop C-ann is one of the most dis tingulis ed orators ever heard in this at city, aid the announcement that he 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 moves all loyal sons of Ireland and their descendants and his discourse th will be a stirring one. mi CONFERENCE TO-DAY. ha th The citizens of the lower Coast who wl have been asking for the improvement [ of the road to Stanton plastione wlll ha have a conference with the mayor this tri morning at 11 o'clock. ' L THIRD DISTRICT FERRY FRANCHISE D)uring the past week there was a conference held at the City Hall with Mayor Behrman, the council commis sion, the city attorney, the city engi neer, and Otto T. Maier and C. I). War ren, of the (;rand Isle R. R. Co.. look a ilg to the advertisement and sale of 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 it ceipts. i It was also suggested that the fran h chise contain clauses calling for dou r ble-end boats, wherein passengers e would go from the ferry houses di i rectly to the upper deck of the boat. 0 The franchise will also necessarily carry with it a complete reconstruction n of the pontoons and approaches on ' either side of the river and in order L1 that a better grade may be had for s the vehicles that additional space be a asked for from the dock board in or ' der that this improvement might be r brought about. L The matter has been left in the hands of the city engineer and the a city attorney to draw up new specifi r cations and before they are brought e up for action they will no doubt be d submitted to the Algiers people for suggestion for the betterment of the d service. It will be with much interest that 0 this new franchise will be read. espe e cially so since our people are anxious - to give a helping hand to the Grand * Isle people who have many times e shown that they are willing to let go t of their money in improvements here. SThe statement of Mr. Warren, made at the St. Charles Hotel a few months ago, that the company stands ready I to spend $10,000,000 in improvements, s is still fresh in the minds of those who i believe in the integrity of our new r Canadian eeomers. We wish them ev r ery success and that they will get the I moral support of the citizens here goes without saying. The company it. Sself stands for improvement and knows that the batterment of the ser vice from what it is at present will cause an Increase In trade, and it is on this principle that the new company will become a bidder for this fran chise. 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 dict. 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 BE BARRED. 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. Popular Young Girls' Shoes for To-Day.
