Class A to t be applicable to those only between the ages of 18 and 35 years, while Class B admits those from the age of 8 to 15 years. Both classes are to receive the same benefits of doc tors and burial alike. This association has been in exist ence for over twenty-eight years, and from the rank and file of this organ ization have sprung some of our most capable organization men in this dis trict. The object in forming Class B is to encourage the young people to take I an active part in benevolent associa- I tions. It will instruct them in the principles of benevolence, also in the c6nduct of meetings and will groom them to become public speakers later on. The young fellow here at his meeting will have the same oppor tunity of voicing his sentiments as do the older members at their meet ings. The by-laws also specify that the application for juvenile members must be signed either by parent or guardian. The following officers were installed for the coming year: Leonard F. Gish, president; J. Mc Cormick, vice president; C. A. Suth erland, recording secretary; Henry Frazier, financial secretary; L. Ack er, treasurer; J. Thorning, guardian; S. Harding, chairman of the relief committee; Jno. A. Barrett and H. Holz. trustees, and Emile Mothe and Jno. A. Barrett, funeral directors. Dr. J. A. Babin, physician. REV. W. 8. SLACK HONORED.

FRIGHTENED HORSE RUNS FROM CANAL FERRY TO ROYAL STREET. Frightened while coming up the ramp of the Canal street terry early Monday, a horse attached to a light spring wagon ran out Canal street and was not stopped natll tt had clided with an from post on the neutral ground at Canal, near Royal street. Before being brunght to a halt the animal ran into a barricade near Roy. al street, where the street Is being re paired In doing so the snlmal was sightly intred aboeet the right trueat leg and to wageso damssed to the ex teat at $5 STRIKERS STILL. .\s the only hope of getting a favor- I able settlement out of the Illinois Cen tral, strikers of that road gathered on Sunday morning in Renecky's Hall and indorsed the plan to form an alliance out of all the different railroad organi zations. About 200 men attended the meeting. A conference of railroad a men will be held in Kansas City in May to either reject or perfect the plan of n alliance. A representative from every e local lodge in North America will at tend this conference. J. F. Mc(''reery, general ic'e-pre,-i dent of the Brotherhood of Railroad ('armen, of Paducah, Ky.. addressed the strikers in support of this alliance Illove\nent. Ile urged the strikers to sullpport the editor of the Illinois ('e.n tral Strike Bulletin, who faces trial at ('linton. Ill., for killing a man in a - strike argument. It is claimed that lie at ted ill self-defense. t Rev. William Ileese,. labor chaplain, talked in favor of the railroad labor alliance also. This mlo\e was neees sary, he said, if railroad workers ex p,'t to receive their rights. lie called attention to the necessity of putting a stop to the wholesale immigration of cheap, illiterate labor. Because of this immigration the home laborer is find ing it hard to make both ends meet. This immigration in the South, he said, t has had the effect of tilling the rural districts full of illiterate whites, who work on plantations at prices which even the negroes can't compete with. As a result the negroes are forced to move to the cities. Thomas Flanagan, general vice-pres ident of the Brotherhood of Black smiths and Helpers, of New Orleans, said the salvation of organized labor C lay in keeping out of politics. He cau- t tioned them about selecting leaders I who would betray them to petty politi cal schemes for their own selfish inter ests. Labor should profit by such events of the past, he claimed. He re gretted the fact that the Illinois Cen tral is using negroes today at Stuyves ant docks in handling freight, instead of white men. The river front today is predominated by negro labor, he charged. W. E. Bowen, vice grand president of the Brotherhood of Railroad Clerks, in a talk declared that the Illinois Cen tral and Harriman lines have lost over $50,000,000 through the strikes.-Pica yune. MONEY THIEF. 3 At the home of Mrs. Gus Gersdorf - the sum of $1.70 was taken Monday night, but a box of jewelry and other r articles of value were handled by s the burglars, but not taken from r the house.

MURRAY-CAMIBON. One of the most charming quiet wed dings of this winter's season was that of Miss Marie Camella Murray to Mau Srice Cornelius Cambon, at St. Alphon sus' Church, Father Moye officiating, assisted by Fathers Kavanaugh and Heffernan. Miss Murray is the daugh ter of the late Captain Hubert Murray, merchant and planter, and for many e years a resident of our district, resid r. ing in Pelican avenue, near Seguid r street, and Mr. Cambon, the late spe * cial deputy surveyor of customs, of Sthis port, is the son of the late Sylves Wter Cambon, banker, merchant and L planter. Owing to bereavements in d both families, the wedding was a quiet one and only attended by the immedi ate friends of the contracting parties. Miss Murray was given in marriage by M her brother, Dr. E. Clinton Murray, of Houston, Tex., and Sylvester J. Cam bon, brother of the groom, acted as best man. The church was decorated in green and white palms and terns Spredominating in the eanctuary. After the ceremony Mr. and Mrs. Cambon t left over the Southe-a Pic' for a trip Sthrough the West and Bouathwest, stope p ping over at Houston, San Antonio, El SPaso, Yosemite Valley and other points. They will be at home at No. * 204 Napoleon avenue after Mar& 1. y. e •s RENECKY 8LLS THE IAMOUS at BUSTER BROWN SHOS8 FOR THU - CILDREoNr THE CIV IC LE.l(AGE. liryades St. Car Line, Electric Light Prices, District Nurse. Etc.. Given Attention. Also Moving Pictures and Immoral kooks. At the meeting of the Fifth Dis trict Civic League. which was held at the residence of Mrs. J. E. Huck ins. its president, on last Monday night, quite a number of very inter esting maters were taken up. the principal one, of hic'h was that many of the lady members volunteered to get annual subscribers for the Dis trict Nurse and milk station on this side of the river. The League itself pledged $3t6 a year. )uring the meeting it was pointed out that the Dryades Street c'ar line is :,iving very poor service to thu Algiers patrons. Complaint was made at the League neeting that on the arrival of the Dryades cars at the ferry the conductor invariably jumps ,ff the car and changes the trolley the other way regardless of the pas sengers whether or not they are off the car. This being done at night the passengers are compelled to get out of the car in the darkness. It was also pointed out that the con ductors are always inside the car collecting the fares before leaving the station, and persons geting on the car at that time are often sub jected to the danger of being thrown from the platform. Complaint was also made that when any of the Dry ades cars are behind time they will not stop anywhere on ('anal street for Algiers patrons the conductor shouting out of the back door that the car will not go to the ferry. After investigation it has been found out that this is in direct violation of the franchise of the Dryades car line. Communication was also ordered - written to the Louisiana Historic So ciety in which the League points out that in recent moving war pictures the traitor is always depicted as a Southern boy. They ask the society t to look into the matter and make s such corrections as they think neces- V sar. Attention was also called at the meeting to the price of electricity in our district as compared with the city, and a communication has been l written to the City Commissioners to see if steps could not be taken to bring about a reduction. A communication is also to be written to the librarian asking that certain books in our public library be withdrawn on account of being immoral and in order that a rush may be avoided on these books the titles will be withheld from publica tion. Notice of the next regular meeting t will be sent out as usual. DAN'CUPID LOSES TWO TIMES AND YOUTH IS IAOCKED UP IN JAIL Albert Stein, 18, Falls In His Plans To Elope With Miss Clara Miller, 16. Dan Cupid was foiled in his at tempt to help persistent Albert Stein, t aged 18 years, to win Miss Clara Mil f ler, two years his junior, by the I elopement route on Saturday. It is o seldom that the wily god of love a loses in such a contest, but he did Sin this. S Stein, however, says that he will S yet get the girl, and as she admits S her love for him, there seems to be some chances for "Danny" to "get even" with stern papa after all. The young people have been sweet hearts, but when Edward R. Miller, the girl's father, took her and his six other children with him when he left 1. McElroy, La., and went to Franklin t it was too much for Stein and the - girl. Hearing of the Gretna greens a- that abound in the vicinity of New S, Orleans, Stein hied himself to this d city, sending word to the girl to leave t. Franklin and he would join her here. S, he reached the city Friday even y ing, but "Papa" Miller was at the I- train also, he having got word of n the couple's plans and took Clara a. to his home at Hendee and De Armas tf streets, Algiers. ' Early Saturday Stein hired a taxi d and sped to the girl's home, from a which he expected to steal her while t "papa" Miller was away at work. I' But again the trick failed, for in 5. stead of taking the girl away, Patrol y man Frank Kraemer took charge of fStein and, upon the complaint of - the girl's father, locked him up in the 'Eighth Precinct on a charge of slan dder.
