NEW CARS ARRIVE. I
The New Orleans & Western Rail
way, that owns the franchise for a car
line from Gretna to \aggaman, re-,
ceived four new cars Monday, and!
there are two more to come. They
will be kept in the barn of the Algiers
Railway Company until the new ser
vice is opened, which should be next
Sunday. according to the present plans.
Because of the advancement of real
estate values and the building of homes
going on rapidly, the new road will
start with the very brightest prospects.
The company is raising the tracks I
along the Immigration Station exten- 1
sion. Part of this work was done be- 1

up to the new methods adopted by it, I
the roadbed is being improved. The I
same kind of work will be done on the
Gretna line as soon as possible. The
Canadian and local capitalists have
done much in making the various lines
better in every way, and the efforts of
the management have been com
MAY OPERATE SUNDAY.
The extension of the electric line
from Gretna to Westwego is progress
ing very rapidly and it is thought that
cars may be operating for the first
time on Sunday coming. This depends
entirely on the progress that is to be
made on the bridge at one of the points
along the line. The management has
had some trouble in getting a suffl
cient amount of skilled labor, but oth
erwise the progress has been very ra
pid. General Manager C. E. A. Carr,
who was down on the main line Tues
day on an inspection tour, stated upon
his return that he hopes to see the
new line operating within the next few
days, but that it will be positively
ready in less than ten days. The fare
on the new electric line from Gretna
to Westwego, which covers a distance
of about three miles, will be five cents,
this, of course, being operated by a
Separate and distinct company from
that holding franchise in our district.
It will be possible, after a few days, to
ride by electric car from the Immigra
tion Station to the end of the new car
line for ten cents, making the distance
about seven miles. The route, of
course, is along the river and will
mean a great deal in the assistance of
transportation and the development of
the commercial interests on the West
bank. New cars for this line are now
stationed in the Algiers ear barn and
will be ready for operation just as soon
as the track is completed.

SENT TO HOUSE OF GOOD SHEP
The Kennedys gax e up one of their
number Saturday morning when Judge
Wilson committed Nora Lee Kennedy
to the House of Good Shepherd for an
Some time ago Nora Lee became in
fected with the gambling habit and
started a little con game, which w'as
to raffle anything she might think of
and when the list was full to tear it
up and start raffling something else.
About two weeks ago Nora Lee hied
herself out to the various friends to
whom she sold her chances, saying
that she was raffling a quilt for the
benefit of a poor sick woman named
Mrs. Russell, and later involved a child
named Mary Alwell in the case. The
two above mentioned naturally resent
ed the unauthorized use of their names
in the matter and had the child taken
before Judge Wilson.
Nora has several times appeared be
fore Judge Wilson and, although only
fourteen years of age, she stood up
and argued her case like a little wom
an. "Judge, your honor," she said,
"Mary Alwell came to me and said
that her mother was very ill and that
she had five or six c.hildren. She told
me that her name was Russell, and
she asked me to help her raffle a Mexi
can-made quilt in order to help sup
port the family. I found out afterward
that her name was not Russell, but Al
well, and there is her mother sitting
over there in a white shirt waist," and
she pointed an accusing finger at a
nervous looking little woman who sat
in the auditorium.
"I have seen Mary going on board
the ships trying to sell tickets for the
raffle of a knitted bag that she carried
about with her, and she asked me why
I did not do it, too."
Mary Alwell said that she had never
asked Nora to sell any tickets for her,
and that the bag she carried around
with her had been made by her mother
and that she never did go into sa
loons, as she had been accused of do
ing. The little lass, who is only elev
en years old, was on the verge of tears
and it was only the comforting pres
ence of her mother that kept her from
The mother of Nora said that her
husband was alive and working, and
that her daughter only sold the raffle
tickets for pocket money. Every cent
she made went toward buying chick
ens, in which she took quite an inter
Officer Charles E. Smith, who made
Nora's arrest, stated that he had seen
Mrs. Kennedy pointing out the most
likely places to sell tickets and send
her daughter into them.
Nora was found guilty and commit
ted to the House of Good Shepherd in
definitely, but this did not seem to
trouble Nora very much, for she skip
ped out of court with a smile and an
"I-don't-care" sort of air.
ALGERINES IN WRECK.
In the big wreck on the Valley road
a few days ago, where so many people
were killed and injured, several of our
townsmen were on the train at the
time. John J. Braai and Henry A.
,Schuly were on the train in the front
coaches where no damage was done
and neither one was injured. Several
negroes from Algiers were on the train
in the rear and were slightly injured.
