A few days ago Jacob Wolverton, one of our local policemen, saved ten year-old William Legnon from drown ing in the river at the foot of Slidell avenue. It is stated that Mr. Wolver ton was in that vicinity at the time when his attention was attracted by a crowd of men and women near the bank. Upon reaching the place he found that a young boy was out in the water about 50 feet from shore and he went into the water and pushed a log to the boy, who took hold of it. It was by this means that he was able to propel the youngster to shore Mr. Wolverton denies that there was a swift current in the water at the time and also stated that some of the ar ticles in the paper were much exag gerated. Mr. Wolverton was very modest about speaking of the affair and stated that it was only his duty to rescue the child. Mr. Wolverton has always made a very efficient officer, having been in the service about five years, and his act of bravery has been commented on by his many friends. METER THIEF. Frank J. Schmidt, 304 Webster street, arrested early Saturday morL ing as the man who had been going from house to house representing him self as a gas meter inspector, was identified by Jacob Schultz, 638 Royal street, and also by Concettina Scipio, 1024 Royal, as the man who entered their homes and secured money from pay meters. Friday afternoon Joseph Schmidt, a brother of the accused, was arrested in connection with robbing gas meters, but was released. Judge Walker exonerated him. When Frank Schmidt appeared be fore Judge Walker on two charges preferred against him by Sergeant Dunn with entering in the daytime and petty larceny, he burst into tears and said that he would plead guilty on both of them, but the judge would not accept his plea and placed him under a bond of $100 on each charge. GRADING STREETS. The street cleaning department, un der the supervision of Ben Hints, has been making some wonderful progress and taking advantage of the good weather. Most of the earth streets have been gone over with the big grad ing machines and they have been giv en a sufficient crown to drain thor oughly. After this preliminary work is done it will be much easier to keep the streets in good order. While it may appear that most of the paved streets have been neglected, and if this a fact, it is because better work was being done where it was most needed. Our force on this side of the river is not sufficiently large to keep the streets in good repair and we must take our medicine the same as all the other districts.

Whitmore of 536 Se gain street, were surprised by mem bers of their old euchre club, the Mer ry Euchre Club, who called to congrat ulate them on the occasion of their silver anniversary. Besides the con gratulations, there was a presentation t of a silver tea set. Mr. Whitmore re sponded to the presentation in very feeeling terms. The young couple were certainly surprised, as the ar. rangements for the affair had been kept very quiet. Misses Louise and Naomi Lynch, nieces of Mr. and Mrs. Whitmore, should be given credit for the entire affair, as it was through their efforts that the celebration was brought about. During the evening delicious refreshments were served and a genu ine old-time card game was entered into. Among those present were: Mr. and Mrs. Charles Arnold, Mr. and Mrs. L P. Gisch, Mr. and Mrs. FP. Goebel, Mr. and Mrs. E. C. Kohn, Mr. and Mrs. U. J. Lewis and Dr. and Mrs. C. V. Kraft. REGISTRATION OFFICE OPEN. After having been closed two months the registration was opened again. Among those who registered early was Edwin T. Merrick, who took the pre caution to make his registration abso lutely according to a strict readins of the law by writing his application in full on the back of one of the blanks not availing himself of the convenience I of the printed blank form. Jefferson Davis Collins, the repre sentative of the "regular" organisation, again was at his post as guard for the interests of his faction. The omce will remain open until closed by the calling of any special election. The hours are from 8 to 1 and 2 to 6 daily, and on Saturdays from 8 to 12. MR. PROSSER VISITS ALGIERS. 'Prof. Charles A. Prosser, the secre tary of the National Association for the Promotion of Industrial Educa tion, was in Algiers Saturday, the guest of his schoolmate, Dr. U. V. Kraft. "Prot. Prosser, who was already ap praised of the number of shops and skilled mechanics in our district, sug gested that Algiers would be an ideal place for the location of one of the in dastrial schools which are contemplat- . ed by our present school board. During his stay ih cNew Orleans, 1 Prof. Prsser addressed the New Or leans Progressive Union, the Public 1 School Alliance, the Teachers' Con-. ventlon, and the New Orleans Public School Board on the subject of voca tioal and provoatioJal eduesth. ADAMr' H41AT MAYOUR BiHEHMARN ALERT e e Watching the Levee and High Water. i. Last year when we were threatened y with an overflow and especially at the e time when the crest was passing New n Orleans, it was not an uncommon e thing to see Mayor Behrman and the s then secretary of tile Levee Board, d Peter E. Muntz, patroling the Algiers 1- levee after midnight. This is not gen erally known and we cite it only to show that the Mayor is alert and fully realizes the conditions which are daily I. presenting themselves. A few days ago there was a meeting held by some of our citizens with the Orleans Levee Board, but it was long before this that Mayor Behrman took up the matter with the Levee Board looking toward the reinforcement of the levees, and asking such other pre cautionary measures as we need. The two following letters written by the mayor on April 4th to the presi dent of the Orleans Levee Board and Mr. Carroll's reply on April 8th are self-explanatory and are sufficient evi dence that our district is being looked after. (Copy) April 4th, 1913. Hon. Leigh Carroll, President, Orleans Levee Board, City. Dear Mr. Carroll: Last year, if you remember, a great deal of loss came to the people living below the Southern Pacific Railroad in the rear of Algiers, caused by the wa ters from the Hymella crevasse. r do not know if the Board is in position to do anything to avoid a repetition of this loss, but, if it can, it certainly _ ought to do so. I would like to hear from you regarding this matter. 1 Very truly yours, f (Signed) I MARTIN BEHRMAN, Mayor. Copy. Hon. Martin Behrman, Mayor, I City Hall. Dear Mr. Mayor: Yours of the 4th inst., in regard to i protection for the rear of Algiers against crevasse water, has Just been 4 received. The Executive Committee will meet on Thursday and I will submit the matter at the time. I agree with you that the Levee Board should give what protection it can under the circum stances. Yours truly, (Signed) LEIGH CARROLL, President, Orleans Levee Board. IMPERSONATES A COLLECTOR AND COMES TO GRIEF. Walter J. Vallette, who says he lives at 437 St. Charles street, was arrested as a suspicious character Priday night by Sergeant Kingman as he stepped from the home of Mrs. Ella Burdette, 729 Conti street, from whom he had collected $1. He had represented him self uas J. W. Davis, a one-armed man, who was authorized to make collec tions for the Bethany Home, 3258 Ohip. pewa street. The police found Davis waiting for Vallette in a saloon at Con ti and Bourbon streets and charged him with being drunk. Vallette was fined $25 by Recorder Batt in the night court. Sergeant Kinsman stated to the court he had permitted Vallette to tele phone O. F. Waits, superintendent of the home, before making the arrest, and that after Vallette had talked to Mr. Waits he had spoken to Mr. Waits himself, who described Davis as a one-I armed man. Vallette then admitted he had assumed the name of the collector and that Davis could be found in the saloon, where the police finally arrest ed him also, charging him with drunk enness. Sergeant Kingman said he be lieved Vallette had made several oth er collectlas while representing him- self as Davis. He said he had reason to believe the men were spending the money they collected for drinks.
