Mr. PortAlexander Portened the andy ti to order, the

r. Poreus having called the meeting to order,
explained the object for which it was cenvened.
They had met, he observed, to see what could be
done in regard to the charge of ten dollars for
a lieanse for a two horse wagon, and Ave
dollars for a one horse wagon. Imposed by
the present City Comoil for this year, more
than was charged lest year. It was need
leas for him to samy that draym as well
as every other class of people were sferere by
the dullness of trade, for all knew how hard the
times were, and It was for the meeting to deter
mime what msteps should be takes to getl as absate
meet of the libese aS. He would call dpeus e
oldest New Orleeas drayman preseat, Jdge Mi
ohael Finlc, to expres his view..
Judge Finch rising, in repone to this am os,
remarked that very little was eeded to be said.
The hard times were preusing upon every body,
draymen as well as other people, and the five or
ten dollars additional tax, that in former years
would be a trifling matter had now be
come a matter worthy of general con
sideration. The draymen were willing to take
their share of the publi burdens, so far as they
were able, but it should be considered that while
taxation on wsgoes was moreesed the income of
the owners was becoming less end les
every day. There was much lees for draymes
to do than there had bees last year or
the year before, and they could not ask higher
rates from the merchants. There were railroads
on all the great business street, too, ad they
were multiplying. Collisions between the cars
and drays and wagoes were unavoidable, and the
drayman was always the sufer for damag
Takng these thing Into consideration he thouht
it very unjust to make the licenses higheran
they ha1 bee. If any chenge had been made it
should have been to make the liceness lower.
On motion of Mr. P. Fitslmmoss a committee
of three was appointed to draft resolutlou alnd
prepare a petition to the council. The
chair appointed as this committee Judge Finch
and Messrs. Dominick Madden and Thos. Egan.
The committee having retired, the chair aga
addresed the meeting, dwelling upon matters
which he thought should be ccnsldered by the
council when they were fixing taxes. Draymen
had to be out every day, wet and dry, whether
they got a load or not. They had to pay their
drivers and to feed their stock, work or no work.
track,sd aw cr coming along, the driver ron into
him and the car was damaged. A bill of fifteen
dollarst wa sent to him by the reairoad company,
and although be knew it was enjeet, rather than
go into a lawsuit, and pays lawyer more than the
mum demanded. he submitted. Losees such as
these were often falling upon draymen mnow.
Arother trounle drsydten have they did not
have until this convention sort at the Me
chanic.' Institute got lato power. The
convention policemen now make t s basDness to
go on the levee and take up draymen for fast
driving, to get fines out of them. He saw a dray
wnised, in thb wsy the other day,-sd he knew
that the mole could not be whipped into a trot.
But what remedy had the man? The tellow who
arrested him would swear that the mnle wan going
t :40, if it was necessary ftor him to swear it.
This drayman's asoclatlon, Mr. Porteus oontaued,
could make itself one of the moat tnfoldue l asso.
cations in New Orleas. They were as useful
sad as necesary to cryr on the commerce of
New Orleans. as the mereheanots themselves, and if
they would bhut work harmonioeusly they would
soon find their society ila Its sphere as infiaental
as the Chamber of Commereo is, t. its sphere.
iMr. Porteus was contlulg his suggeettoun
when the committee returned, send, through
Judge Fainch. reported the following petition and
redolutitons, which were usanmously adopted :
