OF O. D. A.
One of the warmest meeting, (in
fact it was a hot one), was held a few
nights ago in the Pythioa Hall, called
by the O. D. A.'s for the purpose of
ousting Mr. Louis Munsterman as
president of the organization and as
leader of the Orleans Democratic As
sociation. The meeting was opened
by vice president Burmaster, after
which Mr. Charles Donner gave some
of the reasons for calling the meeting
as follows: He stated that the O. D.
A's did not want a Rip Van Winkle
at the head of the organization. We
presume he had reference to Mr. Mun
sterman. Mr. Donner stated that Mr.
Munsterman had done nothing for
the ward since he took his office, that
he did not go out of his way to accomo
date his constituents. Mr. Donne
urged that a new leader be elected
and that he was not an applicant for
the position. Mr. John E. Collins also
pointed out during the meeting the
great number of positions that had
been lost in Algiers, mentioning the
city electrician and bis assistant, coun
cil clerk, and fifteen or twenty other
jobs that had bees refilled by city
men. Mr. Wm. Smith was also very
severe on Mr. Munsterman, and in
common political parlence Mr. Smith
gave Mr. Munsterman a good rolling.
During the heat of the arguments,
pro and con, mostly pro, John Mathews t
gave vent to his feelings in the follow- 1
ing statement: "Well gentlemen, the
ring was bad, but not as bad as the
bunch you have now." This expres
sion received some applause.
Mr. W. R. Hafkesbring, who defend- ]
ed Mr. Munsterman read some ex
cerpts from the Herald. He stated that I
he did not know anything about the
meeting being called, and the first In
formation he had received was when I
he found a postal with his own name
printed on it calling a meeting. Mr.'
Wi. Smith also stated in answer to
some of those present that the party
was badly split. "Yea, we are badly
split, but 98 per cent of those that are
split do not want Munsterman."
Veto oft o.(3af ce Not Given.
Some eme in the audience after hear
ing what Mr. Hahfeebring had to say
about sot supporting Mayor McShane
e fered a arltion that the meeting
give a vote I ceadenes to Mayor Me
Shase. The motlen was seeonded, but

a-e COveil orlmtue mrelta -
Nemslamismo in Oeie.
Fully 96 per emat of the one hundred
t or more present were in favor of reor
s ganisatlio and were in favor of going
ahead with that reorganlzation at once.
Vioeehairman Burmaster then called
for nominations ,nd Mr. Louis Acker
was nominated, as was also Mr. Prsak
Killesn. Netther one of the candi
dates were present at the meeting.
It seemel that the votes were over
whelming in favor of Mr. Acker, which
the vote fallyshowed. We feel rea
Ssonamhy sure that had Mr. Killeen bees
present he would have withdrawn in
favor of Mr. Aeker. After the tallies
were counted Mr. Acker was unani
mously elected president of the, 15th
d Ward Orleans Democratic Associaton.
The foeliwig othe officers were
also seleted: Wn. Burmaster, first

is a member of a family of large tax

the genauine interest so essential to

Men Abandon Truck I
With Alochol hOn It
On Monday night, Supernumerary
Evans noticed a truck in the darkness t
and two men standing near by at the th
corner of Vallette and Newton streets. th
One of the men ran off on the ap- h%
proach of the policeman and his mount,
the other remained. Evans questioned
the man and learned his name was a
Charles Dubret, 739 Elmira avenue. m
Dubret explained the truck con
talned 13 five gallon jugs that smelled re
strongly of alcohol, but all were emp- in
ty. There was one ten gallon can, g
however, that Evans asserts con- m
tained a small quantity of alcohol. tr
Examination of Dubret resulted in a
the arrest of Peter Danos, 1415 Whit
ney avenue, the man who ran. Is
Further investigation revealed the re
truck is the property of Davis A. cI
Adams and was taken out of a garage tl
by Danes without the consent of Mr. a
Adams. Both men were taken to the h
Algiers Station where they are being
held pending investigation by federal ii
authorities. Daneo is also charged.
with the act relative to taking an au
tomobile without the owner's consent.

Officer Evans W
Dodges Bullets
From out of the darkness in the
quiet river front section of Algiers,
near the United States Marine Bar- I
racks early Wednesday morning, wa
came a flash of fire. Patrolman of
Evans had just dismounted from his: H
horse and was about to enter the w}
barracks to use a telephone when ev
ambushed. pa
The flash of the pistol illuminated ed
the spot for the traction of a second
and Patrolman Evans saw an auto
mobile with several men. The shot
came from that machine as it rapidly hc
sped by. and the bullet whizzed close
to the head of Evans' horse." The
automobile sped away.
Leaping into his saddle Patrolman
Evans gave chase. Out Newton St.
to Elmira avenue the chase led. In r
Elmira avenue two more shots whis
tied dangerously close to horse and 1,
rider. Undaunted, Evans urged his
mount, and the gallant animal re
sponded with an added burst of speed.
Into Opelousas avenue the gang turn
ed, almost overturning the machine.
Evans was nearly a square away, and V
when the policeman made the turn 84
into Opelousas avenue, the machine r"
was out of sight. It is believed it h
had entered one of the many garages
in that section operated by William a
Harper. Mr. Harper willingly open- d
ed all his garages and showed the
police around. No trace of the au
tomobile could be found.
Monday, agents of the "whiskey d
ring" doubtless read of the wonder
fully keen sense of smell which
Evans' horse possesses. They read
of how Evans tried frantically and I
I unsuccessfully to urge his horse on e
when the animal came to a dead 8
stop on the Newton street viaduct;
d of how the animal snorted and
breathed heavily, and of how the I
r- policeman, awakening to a sense that
a something was wrong, caught the 4
e odor of alcohol, and of how the
g horse, unguided by his rider, turned I
is toward Vallette St.--a square away
tr and of ho* Evans came upon a man 1
al by an automobile, in which were
t. several five-gallon demijohns which
had contained alcohol, and one small
er can in which there was still a
quantity of alcohol. The man gave
his name and address as Charles Du
bret, 739 Elmira avenue. l'om him
of the police learned the name and ad
ta dress of Peter Danos, 1415 Whitney
rt avenue, who* had been with Dubret.
