OUR PUBLIC FORUM Peter Radford ON THE AMERICANISM OF WASHINGTON In these days when men earnestly inquire what true Americanism is, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States afford a convenient touchstone for the citizenship. These documents promise the citizens the rights endowed upon them by their Creator and among these rights are mentioned life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It is God-made and not man made liberty that our government proposes to give its citizens. Our government denies man the right to create liberty or grant special freedom. We can only define and equally distribute them. Thomas Jefferson in writ ing the Declaration of Independence was so confident of the unity and patriotism of the people that he uses less - of space in laying down principles of government and the e Svoted to complaints against King George. Our forefathers Sverament spent almost their entire time in constructing ma , M,ravng and distributing liberty to the people and Spent very Sdelning it, although we have since added fifteen amendments each specifically defining human right. of Independence was signed and the Constitution of the M *pted by men who had dedicated their lives and their property *Et7. Patriotism ruled the day and indifference to the public u thinkable crime. But in this age, we have become so __ est affairs that we have little time to kiss the bible, salute the Declaration of Independence or study the Constitution of hagL. The question uppermost in the minds of the patriots who SYevrnent was "what can I give to my countrymen"? But the Istion of this commercial age is "what can I get from Uy T ie Lnstruments of government have been compelled to do I gimes. It is true we have had to re-write the Constitution. 1st..tling it and have placed fifteen patches upon it and have with laws expounding it, but it has stood the test. of Washington places unbounded conidence in the them and them alone with government and we elect men . 3m,.

Sates A GOOD CATCH. Patrolmen Hell and ('hristen. of the E:ihth Precinct Police Station. made a good capture Thursday evening at 5:1.5 o'clock when, at Patterson street and Pacific avenue, they caught Winm. .Mars. .: years old. and Carroll Var nado, 19 years old, in the act of at tempting to dispose of a lot of brass. lead and copper material which is be lieved to hate been stdlen. Mars claimed to have purchased the stuff at points along the river front from St. James to New Orleans. but the pair told so many conflicting tales that they are not believed at all. The material was brought to Algiers in a skiff, which, it is thought may also have been stolen, as neither pris oner lives in this vicinity. Mars is said to be an ex-convict and when charged so by the police admitted that he served two years in the peniten tiary for breaking into a grocery at Baldwin. La. Recorder Goff imposed the usual sentence of $10 and twenty days and nine days additional in order to hold the suspects pending further investigation of the case. YOUR STATE TAX. Those who do not take the official journal of the city of New Orleans will not be able to know that the state taxes are now being advertised. After the expiration of about thirty days the property will be sold at public auction at the Courthouse, so if you have not paid a tax on your property for 1915 you had better hustle down and make the payment. By doing so you will save several of the fees inci dent to the delay, the advertising, sending out notices. etc. Mr. Charles Brownlee, who is in charge of the tax collection department for the Algiers district, will be more than pleased to give such information as you desire. Office hours from 9 a. m. to 3 p. m. KINDERGARTEN PICNIC. On Tuesday morning the little ones attending the kindergarten at Belle ville School were given a picnic by the Mothers' Club and were kindly as sisted by the teaching course in the school. The happy little party left the Belleville Annex promptly at nine o'clock. but unluckily it was way aft er ten before they found their picnic ground as some misunderstanding had occurred as to where the picnic was to be held. They were all taken in autos to Kohn's property on the Low er Coast, but available picnic grounds could not be found at that particular spot. After a good many rides up and down the different lanes which all the children enjoyed, a large oak tree was selected where the little ones were unloaded, much to their happi ness. Mr. John Kappler used his con veyance to take all of the refresh ments, tables and chairs down to the little ones.. PERSONALS II AND OTHERWISE 1 ..; 1 " I( I .u ( i - I "r \ 1 . i t \ **' I* 2L . !.

SURPRISE SPRADA. ()One of the biggest e.ent. of its kind ever witnessed in Algiers was the surprise party to Mr. and .Mrs. John Sprada on last Thursday eve ning. The affair was gotten up hby Mr. John Kappler and Mr. Theo (). Ilotard. and was in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Sprada's recent marriaee. The party collected at the corner of .\lix and Powder streets, and headed by the Gretna Military Band. marched to martial strains anti with flags and fireworks through the streets of .\l giers. stopping at various places to add to the crowd and serenade, and finally wound up. six hundred stron:. at Sprada's popular catering estab lishment. to the great surprise of Mlr. anti Mrs. Sprada. Introdutctory re marks were made by Mr. Ilotard. aft. er which Mr. .Kal-pler presented the surrrieed couplile with a handsome aft sr dinner set. Mr. Sprada. in Ger man, reciprocated the complimentls, and all joined in a toast to the lont life. health and prosperity of the newly married couple.

"If anybody didn't ha\e a good time. it was their own fault." and the merriment continued until it was time to go home.
