was a Pythian lodge in Gretna, and
now it has disappeared. Why has this
lodge died out? I would be very glad
to have the three Algiers lodges take
up this matter, and see if they can re

only on the Algiers lodges, but on all
of the others in New Orleans that this
has occurred. If I can do nothing else
during my incumbency of office than to
revive that lodge. I shall be very proud.

AGAIN IN TROUBLE.
In connection with the theft of a Tu
pex chain hoist and coil of manila rope,
valued at $110, from the Naval Station
on Tuesday morning, July 25th, the
Eighth Precinct police arrested the
three Alwart brothers, James, John
and Charles, better known as the 011Oi
ver brothers, who live in McLellan
ville; Phil Hartman, of 3316 Burgundy
street, and Emile Rowyer, of 2618 Ma
rals street, as dangerous and suspi
cious. They appeared before Recorder
Clement Thursday morning, but being
unable to give a satisfactory statement
they were sentenced to $20 or twenty
days. and twenty days additional.
The Alwart brothers are notorious
police characters and though mere
youths, have been mixed up In thefts
on various occasions, for some of
which they served time. It is believed
by the police that they have arrested
the right parties and they hope to find
the stolen property before long. The
hoist and rope were stolen from the
coaling room at the Naval Station.
ALGIERS RAILWAY BALKS ON
City Attorney I. D. Moore last week
received a letter'frotn Lelh Carroll of
the Algiers Railway, Light & Power
Company, advising that he had noticed
in the papers that his company had
been notified to extend the Algiers and
Gretna line to McLellanville and to the
Mississippi river, but that his com
pany has never reached an agreement
to extend the line to the river and hi
recent letter accepting notification to
extend the line was meant to apply
only to an extension to McLellanville
City Attorney Moore replied to Mr
Carroll, declaring emphatically thai
the franchise ordinance under whic,
the road is operating requires that the
line must be extended to McLellanville
and to the river, and that the company
must comply with the ordinance. The
city attorney further advises Mr. Car
roll that it his company "has not come
to any agreement as to extending the
line to the river" that sa agreemn
can be arrived at if he will call unpol
the mayor dsacity attorney.
A SUBSCRIPTION LIST.
FINE SUGGESTIONS FROM ONE OF
OUR READERS FOR FERRY
WILL THE FERRY COMPANY CON
A PERTINENT LETTER TO THE1
HERALD FULL OF INTEREST.
Ar ii s. LA.. J.uly 17th. 1911.
Edtor His itn:
1)t \xt Sit--ln reading over one of the
Sunday morning issues of the daily pa
pers. I came across an article devoted
to the description of a very noble char
ity that has been organized in our city
teast bank), where the respectable
down and out" or those who are tem
porarily out of employment or funds,
can get a clean, comfortable and safe
place to rest and sleep for ten cents.
or if without even this small suni, ac
commodations will be furnished free:
it is a noble charity and should meet
with aid from all who are in a position
to help. While reading over the arti- G
cle and its description of the many n
poor, weary and footsore wanderers n
who apply to the home for rest, my J
own experience on the %.oal street t
ferry pontoon, especially on the city d
side. occurred to me and I realized that c
f it is not always the tramp that looks d
around without success for a place to '
rest his weary limbs, but we of the ti
more prosperous and comfortable class,
that at times even with money to pay
for it cannot find a place to relax our
muscles, but must stand up or lean
against an iron railing for ten, fifteen E
or twenty minutes waiting for a boat. t
It is of course a short time, but, oh! c
how long to a tired man or woman, to c
say nothing of God's chosen, the little
C children. On the city side there is one
bench capable of holding about seven
persons, and at any time up to twelve
c o'clock at night, from the departure of
the boat until its return, can be seen
Y any number of women and children
seeking all manner of postures, en
deavoring to rest their tired bodies.
You have called attention to this mat
ter on several occasions but as yet the
management has not seen fit to remedy
it. I am not personally acquainted
with the manager of the ferry com
pany but know him by sight, and also
know that he holds some public posi
tion in the city administration, and
judge by his appearance that he is a
gentleman and would not willingly put -
the tired public to an inconvenience, if
n there was not some good reason for it;
e but I cannot see it, as it would not en
e courage loungers to have a sufficient
n number of benches as no one can get
on the pontoon until they have paid
Stheir fare and passed through the
Swheel. Now I have two plans that I
Swish to suggest to you and hope that
you will take the matter up if you
r think either of them are good. First
gof all let a committee of prominent
t citizens call on the ferry manager and
Sin the name of the tired public obtain
his permission to carry out the plan,
1 then open a subscription list by popu
re lar contributions raise a fund to pur
to chase comfortable benches, and I feel
i assured that in a few days enough
d money can be raised to furnish all the
d benches needed. Or we could even
id make a business proposition to the
le management, i. e., purchase a lot of
IC camp stools, donate them to the ferry
company, and let them rent them out
to their patrons at so much a trip. I
feel assured that if we can only over
come the objection of the ferry com
pany and obtain their consent that any
of the above plans will prove a suc
cess. Of course some will refuse to
contribute on the ground that when
'k they have paid their fare they are en
of titled to the proper care and atten
er tion.'but this can be overcome by ex
id plaining to them that the management
Ld must be in the right when they refuse
id of their own accord to place a sufficient
ie number of seats in their waiting rooms
n- or pontoons, which are the cleanest
nt and healthiest places to wait, in this
is age when all laws of health are crying
to aloud for open air accommodations. In
ly the name of the tired public I ask you
le. to take this matter up and after soft
[r. ening the hearts of the ferry people
at and gaining their consent, start the
ch subscription and save our suffering
he women and children from the torture
Ile of standing on tired feet or leaning
sy weaty shoulders up against an iron
he railing waiting for the boat to receive
ir- their exhausted bodies, and transfer
ne them over the river, which seems to
he be the only thing that the management
it is obligated to do.
