TELLS WHY IT SHOULD REMAIN
Appeals to Congressman H. Garland

"Of course, I realize fully that the
naval station is a thing of the past
In so far as New Orleans is concern- I
ed," said Mayor Behrman Friday morn
ing, "and there is no one that can re
gret that fact more than myself, for I
realize that its loss is a serious blow
to the interests of the city.
"But the subject of the dry dock is
another thing, and if that can be re
tained it means much. Its retention
will not in any way interfere with or
antagonize any other dock interests,
and it is the only dock here at present
that offers facilities to large ocean
ships to have necessary repairs done
when they come to this port."
The Mayor Friday sent the following
letter to Congressman Dupre at Wash
"Ne wOrleans, Sept. 29, 1911.
"Hon. H. land Dupre,

"New Orleans, La.
"Dear Sir-We learned, some time
since, that the naval station here would
be abandoned in so far as practical
purposes were concerned. But from
the information we had we believed
that the dry dock would remain
equipped and be prepared and in read-!
iness for service at all times. This
morning I was informed that it Is pro
posed to furlough all of the dock em
ployes and thus practically put It out
of commission absolutely.
"It is well understood that it was
never intended to have this dock
placed In competition with any of our
local docks, but its service and neces
sity for the larger sea-going vessels
were recognized. In order to handle
same it Is necessary to have skilled
and experienced workmen as mechan
ics of that kind are not found readily
when needed. The dock has been
found to be a most valuable adjunct
to the shipping of our port, frequently
for these larger vessels. Now, if these
trained workmen are furloughed and
moved away from New Orleans, this
adjunct will be rendered worthless to

NEW 'SUNSET' TRAINS
FAST AND BEUTIFUL
Southern Pacific-Sunset Route
Will Cut Time Between New
Orleans and San Francisco
Thirty Hours and Connect with
CARS BEING BUILT OF STEEL
AND OF THE LATEST DESIGN6
Excess Fare of $10 Will Be
Charged for Extra Comforts
Mlodern travel, already luxurious, is i
to be made even more so by the South
ern Pacific, Sunset Route. Plans for s'
a new train to run twice weekly be
tween New Orleans and Los Angeles
and San Francisco call for a cut of
thirty hours in the running time be
tween the two points. The new sched
ule, with its attendant comforts, has *
been brought about by the heavy win
ter travel between the two points on
the Sunset Route, and to care for this,!:
new equipment is now be:ng built in
the Pullman shops at Chicago.
The trains will be all steel. The cars :
will be of latest design and will c'on- *
tain every comfort now in use on the
fastest and best equipped trains, and l
many new conveniences in addition.
Built for High Speed.
The trains will consist of only six
cars, and thus the high speed that
will be demanded to make the schedule,
may be maintained with comparative
ease. Each train will carry only a dy
namo and baggage car, a diner, threel
drawing room sars will be finished in
vation smoking car. The sleeping and
drawing room cas will be finished in
mahogany and other beautiful hard
woods and furnished in luxurious i
fashion. The sleeping cars will each(
contain ten sections, two compart
ments and a drawing room. They are
being built with an especial regard to
the comfort of women, in that the
accommodations for them will be most
commodious. A ladies' maid, manicure i
and hairdresser will aid in caring for
the needs of the women.
The men also will be well taken care 4
of, there being a barber, shower bath,
arrangements for pressing clothes and
a stenographer aboard.
The berths are to be electric lighted
both upper and lower, and electric fans
will cool the air of the car.
The dust and dirt of transcontlnien
tal travel will be eliminated as much
as possible by the Installation of va
cuum cleaners that will do away with
the offensive brushing up of dirt in the
cars. At all terminals the trains will
be given telephone connections and
travelers will be enabled to talk with
friends in the city without leaving the
Previous Records to be Broken.
Service on the "Sunset Limited'
will begin December 4 from New Or
leans, and the following day from San
Francisco. The trains will leave New
Orleans at 12:30 noon Mondays and
Thursdays of each week and arrive In
Los Angeles at 9:15 p. m. every
Wednesday and Saturday, and in San
Francisco at 11 a. m. the following
On the eastern trip trains will leave
San Francisco at 6:30 p. m. Tuesdays
and Saturdays, Los Angeles at 8:30
a. m. the following days, and arrive in
New Orleans at 7:30 p. m. every Fri
day and Tuesday. The running time
between Los Angeles and New Orleans
will thus be cut to fifty-six hours and
ffty minutes and between San Fran
cisco and New Orleans to seventy
hours and fifty minutes, or less than
three days for the trip that now takes
more than four.
The luxuries afforded the traveler
and the speed attained are such that
an excess fare of $10 will be charged
between the two terminals.
Connections With Steamships.
The time of the two trains has been
gauged so that direct and quick con
nection will be made at both ends of
the route with ocean steamships. Trav
elers from San Francisco lound for
the East and North may take this train
and be whirled to the Louisiana me
tropolis and there transfer to fast
trains or steamships of the Southern
Pacific. On the western trip, the man
who is hurrying to catch one of the
vessels of the Pacific Mail will have
an additional day for business and still
make his boat.
The service when inaugurated will
be a unique departure in railroad his
tory. The trains will be difflerent from
any. other in the United States, the
equipment of the latest and best, and
every care will be taken for the safety
"It's the biggest thing ever attempt
ed by any railroad," said a Southern
Pacifice official. "Of course, there are
extra fare trains, but none like these
and no railroad ever before made such
a cut in the running time as we will
make. And we will do it in a fashion
that really will add to the safety of
travel, as our trains will be especially
safegnarded and watched from one end
of the line to the other."

ICE FOR THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
Mayor Behrman has been requested
by Councilman O'Connor and Frank
Owens and Joseph Reuther of the
Board of School Directors to furnish
ice to the public schools during the
summer months while the schools are
in session. At present the only way
the children can have the benefit of ice
water is when they contribute to a fund
among themselves for the purchase of
ice, and those who are unable to con
tribute suffer humiliation in the
