McGUIRE. - Ge.o Fahey will be the future su perintendent of Mississippi .termin als, with headquarters in New Or leans. This post has been created by Mr. Hopkins, with a view of bet ter handling the greatly increased volume of business the lines are do ing, locally and for export. A large part of this work in the past has been looked after by John McGuire, who has been with the Southern Pacific nearly forty-six years. During this long period Mr. McGuire has been constantly and faithfully at his post of duty, and he has seen and helped in the devel opment of the port facilities from the time when the terminal of the road, at one end, was New Orleans, and, at the other end, Morgan City, to the present time, when it has be come a link of one of the greatest transcontinental roads of the coun try. The principal idea of creating this position is to take off of Mr. Mc Guire's shoulders many of the bur dens of operation that he has been called upon to meet in recent years. It i the intention of the manage ment in the near future to allow him the benefits of the rest that he has earned through his long and continu ous years of faithful service, and re lieve him altogether of the many re sponsibilities that go hand in hand with his position.

Virgil Alford, of Gretna, narrowly*' escaped drowning shortly before tnoon Monday when his mule pitched headlong into the river from the decks of the ('anal street ferry A. H. Halliday while the boat was tied up to the pontoon at Morgan street, Al giers. The mule was drowned, while a part of the wagon and two iron eye I beams were lost in the river. Before going down the pontoon to the ferry one of the rear wheels of the wagon was chained to prevent a rapid descent. The chain broke and the mule, frightened, dashed onto the boat. Mule, wagon and driver plunged 1 into the icy stream. Isaac L. Smith, negro deckhand, threw a rope to Alford. Several pas sengers assisted in the rescue. The mule, wagon and eye beams disap peared beneath the surface. The an imal was valued at $200. The team and its load belonged to the Thorn ton Grab and Derrick Company, of McDonoghville. BRAKEIMAN POUND DEAD. The body of A. C. Rhodes, a brake man on the Texas and Pacific road, was found in an outhouse behind the saloon of George Walter in McDon oghville at 6 o'clock Monday morn ing, where it was shortly afterwards viewed by Coroner Odom, who found that heart failure had caused the man's death. Rhodes was last seen alive at 11 o'clock, when he left his room, and is believed that he died shortly after that hour. Rhodes was 50 years of age. He has no relatives as far as is known at McDonoghville, and friends ar ranged for his funeral, which took place at 3 o'clock Monday afternoon, with interment in the McDonoghville Cemetery. The body was prepared for burial by Undertaker Mothe from whose funeral parlors Rhodes was -buried. INTEREST IN FIGHT FOR 1 CENT POSTAGE BIG, SAYS DOWN -MAN. R. H. Downman, the wealthy lum Sberman who is taking an active part Kin the campaign inaugurated by the SNational One Cent Letter Postage Association, composed of business Smen in all parts of the country, stat ed that local interest, in the cam Spaign is spreading, and he expressed Sthe belief that if business men every where pull together for the associ ation's object, congress at its next 'session will be compelled to grant a It one-cent letter postage rate. He urges all Louisiana business men to support the movement and Sjoin the association. "It was never intended that the Postofice Department should be op erated at a profit," said Mr. Down man. "The purpose in establishing it was to provide a mail service at only the cost of its operation. On account of the exhorbitant rates now being charged, the postal department dur ing the past year showed a clear Sprofit of about $7,000,000 on first class mail. First-class mail supplies less than 14 per cent of the total ton nage of the mails, yet it is required to pay 75 per cent of the total reve nue. Eighty-four cents per pound, equal to $1,680 per ton, is the rate the business men of this city are now paying on their letters. Yet calculations of postal ofdcials in Washington show that one-cent letter poestage will yield the government a profit" RENECKY IS SATISFIED WITH A LESS PROFIT. BUY YOUR SHOES FROM mM. Suit Against Express Companies Withdrawn HERALD WINS VICTORY FOR ALGIERS CONFERENCE OF HEADS OF THE DIFFERENT EXPRESS COMPANIES WITH EDITOR ENDS IN WITHDRAWAL OF SUIT-ALL EXPRESS MATTER FOR ALGIERS ADDRESSED TO ANY STREET IN THIS DISTRICT WILL BE SENT TO THE ALGIERS EXPRESS OFFICES FREE OF CHARGE. Some.1 wee-ks ago The Hterald entered suit against the different Express c(om- - panics in the city of New Orleans hi fore the Iouisiana Railway ('onlmis sion. asking that the different Express I companies be compelled to deliver ex press matter to the Algiers side of the river whetner or not it was so marked and also to put an end to the extra charge for the translporting of these prepaid packages. The suit was filed and by special arrangement it was to have been tried on the 13th of January in the Council Chamber at the regular meeting of the Railway Commission in this city. After the Express companies had been notified of the filing of the suit a conference was asked with The llerald by the managers of the different Ex press companies doing business in the city. This conference was held at the office of dMr. Hyde of the Wells Fargo Express Company, eleventh floor of the W'hitne'-Central Bank building, at which time it was agreed that they re would comply with the request of The K d Herald that all express packages,' e whether prepaid or not, were to be de- t livered to the Algiers express offices without any further charge, and also that in the future all express packages le addressed to any person having a des ye ignation of any street in this district, would also be sent over to the Algiers to express office without any further of charge. As example: A prepaid pack age addressed to John 1oe. 1217 Peli d can avenue, New Orleans, La.. will be he delivered to the Algiers express office. Heretofore the party was notified that ed a package was at the New Orleans of-,l fice and it necessitated the consignee d, making a special trip to the city in i . order to receive this package. ii he The different Express companies p- have now agreed to make the deliver n- ies to the Algiers offices, and those Lm companies who do not have an office n- on this side of the river have made of arrangements with the companies who do have offices here to handle their Algaers packages for them. Since the Express companies have complied with all the demands made by The Herald, the suit before the Louisiana Railway Commission has e- been withdrawn. The following let d. ters from the managers of the different he Express companies are evidence of the ºn- agreements made between the Express n- companies and The Herald, the Ex *ds press companies being represented by nd E.

T Charles Bodenger, the son of Jules Bodenger, of the Algiers Plumbing o Company, was seriously injured a s, few days ago in a bicycle collision, a his left arm being broken between ' the elbow and shoulder. The frac- b ture is what is known as an oblique ]i fracture, which may necessitate a n secondary operation in order that no d deformity may occur. The injured s boy was waited on by Drs. King and f Weaver. In a few days he will be n subjected to an X-ray examination, a which will be necesba-y to ascer tain whether or not further operation will be required. The accident which caused the in jury occurred on the corner of Be guin and Alix streets late Friday af ternoon. Willie Conway lost four teeth and split his upper lip, also necessitating surgical attention. The wheels of the young riders were almost completely broken up. It is stated that a short time be- t fore the Bodenger accident, at almost the exact spot, Seldon Talbot, who was riding a bicycle, fell and also sustained a blow from the handle I bars, which rendered him uncon scious for a time. He was attended by Dr. Jno. A. Rupp, who brought Shim about in a short time. He was not seriously injured. Young Tal bot was riding a young lady on the handle bars of his wheel, and when he dismounted the bars swung round striking him in the vicinity of the heart. NEW CALENDARS.
