providing for pupils not here last June.

THE USURIOUS MONEY-LENDER.
BY THE PLAIN MAN.
It has come to my attention during the past week, that a young man em
ployed in a large branch house in this city had his wages garnisheed through
the main office in Chicago, and thereby lost his position. The money lender
responsible in this case is one who has beent in the public eye several times
before, but this seems not to have damped his ardor for exacting "his pound
of flesh." As it was told to me, the young man in question had paid the
usurer Interest far in excess of the original loan, but was still being hounded
for the "principal."
There is much talk about the menace to youth of gambling, drinking, etc.,
but there can be no greater menace to these same youth than these usurious
money-lenders. The path to their clutches is strewn with bright hopes and
rosy dreams, but once they have you in their grasp you may well leave hope
behind. You pay interest upon interest, compounded again and again, and
always they hold up that original note-"the principal." And you cannot es
cape them; they follow you from job to job, ay, from city to city, relentlessly.
You are pursued until you are driven to an ignomious end.
It is a blot upon a fair civilization that such things should exist. Surely
our lawmakers could construct laws to end this evil effectually. It is true we
have laws on the statute books applying to these cases, but the lawyers who
made them always find a way to circumvent them. Because, fifty years ago.
Judge Blank, in 99 An. ,99, decided so and so is always a good reason for a like
decision to-day. And then the lawyers-the public would be surprised to
know that some firms of the highest legal standing in the community take and
prosecute these cases. In a little town in Mississippi, some months ago, the
better class of lawyers combined not to take any case for a money-lender, and
more to defend free of charge any suit brought by the usurers. This had the
effect of driving them out of the town. In some of the Northern States plans
have been formulated for lending money to the poorer classes through co-opera
tive associations, and have met with much success. Something should be done
in New Orleans, for this city is fairly overrun with these sharks in human
form. Perhaps, and it is only a suggestion, the daily press of the city might
do much to alleviate the evil by more publicity. These ghouls thrive in secrecy
and if their names, and the names of their legal advisers, were put before the
people in the public prints, it would have a salutary effect on the nefarious
WAKE UPI ALGIERS.
Hello! Algiers? Well, say, you haven't gone to sleep erer there? You
know Christmas is coming; everybody's boosting now. Do some of it your
selves. You have a little Garden of Eden over here, but nobody but yourselves
will know about it if you don't boost it a little. Talk about it, tell about it
keep its resources and advantages always in the limelight. Write about it in
your paper, and read what others say about it. Go over and tell the city
papers about it; they will be glad to help you in your boosting. But boost,
and keep on boosting; and all the while you are boosting, devise plans for
making your town better, more beautiful, healthier, and commercially more
powerful. Only thus can you interest the outsiders; and interest them you
must in order to make the progress that you should. Above all things, don't
go to sleep at the switch-that spells catastrophe.

lis, cessful treatments of adults is much
smaller. The wise parent, then, on
learning of any of these defects of his
child, immediately consults the proper
de, specialist, either at his private offce

child such heavy handicaps in the race

ch- NOW JUDGE DUFFY.
Eu- Certainly do we sympathize with
Governor Luther Hall in his troubles
au- with the judgeship of our Recorder's I
el- Court, and we congratulate the Gov- 1
ernor that John M. Duffy, of our dis- I
trict, should have accepted this posi
tion ,and to have accommodated the I
rn. Governor to the extent of several I
weeks' inconvenience in order that a
ia. thorough Democrat would occupy the
r., bench. We are not going to criticizse
the Governer about the appointpent of I
as. Mr. Duify. If Mr. Duffy was a Michel I
supporter he was a Democrat Just the I
same, and it was a Democrat that the
rie, Governor was after this time, and not
e!. a Bull Mooser. Mr. Duffy is one of <
ert our well-known representative citi
zens and a valued employe of the i
he Southern Pacific Steamship Company, I
irk and it will be the pleasure of his many
m- friends to speak of him in the future
dr, as Judge Duffy. It is stated that Clerk
hn O'Keefe and Janitor Crombie will con- *
tinue to hold their positions until such
time as the Commission Government I
makes a change.

People in general are under the Im
h pression that Civil Service positions
r in the U. S. Government are perma
nent ones, however we have seen such
not to be the case, especially so at the
d Naval Station.
e When the Navy Dock first came in
d 'November, 1901, and thereafter, as
improvements were made, several good
positions were created and every one
vied with each other in taking the ex
aminations, trying to secure the posi
d tions; many resigning from good
e places in order to do so.
d The following are some of the posi
tions which were obtained through
competitive examinations, and ap
peared a few years ago to be perma
nent, viz., Dockmaster, Master Machin
Y ist, Machinist in charge, Chief Electri
e clan. Special Mlechanic, Foreman La
borer, two clerks to Commandant, one
clerk to each department, Construction,
Steam Engineering, Yards and Docks,
' General Storekeeper, and for Paymas
a ter, also a Timekeeper, one Draftsman
I each for C. and R. and S. E., also an
electrical derftsman, and several arch
itectural draftsmen for Y. and D., be
sides six watchmen for the Naval Dock
Now in addition to the above men
tioned positions, there were mechan
ics and helpers of all branches, also
laborers, special foremen and clerks
employed there, and now the force has
been so reduced, that there is only
one clerk, and six watchmen who are
the only Civil Service men left. In
the Construction Department, there
are one shipwright, two carpenters,
four niachintsts, four firemen, one rig
ger, one painter, two helpers, and a few
extra painters and helpers, working on
the docK, and two helpers for S. E., be
sides five colored helpers around the
Station. There is no Civil Service
Foreman in charg of any of the De
s partments or Dock. There being more
. employees now than there were when
the dock first arrived, and yet the gov.
ernment then deemed it proper to
have a Dockmaster and Machinist-in
charge, to take care of the dock struc
ture and machinery. Then there was
also a Captain of the Navy, as Com
mandant, besides a Carpenter U. S. N.,
and a Civil Engineer U. S. N.; now
there is a Carpenter, U. S. N., as Custo.
dian, who performs duty as Dockmas- t
ter, Civil Engineer, Construction Om- c
cer and Engineer Officer. One of the s
employed carpenters is doing the duty 9
of Dockmaster, which was previously 8
done by Mr. Tracy Lilly, and one of f
the machinists is performing the duty r
of Machinist-in-charge, which was pre-i
viously done by Mr. A. J. Haaser, and i
later by Mr. Adam Hammer. o
Therefore, the injustice can be seen,
that the Navw9Department has been
gradually doing away with the im
portant positions regardless oftCivil
Service Rules;' the last position was a
made vacant by Master Machinist, A.[
J. Haaser being discharged during last i
week; the letter received from the Sec t
retary of the Navy stajed that, owing s
to the present condition of the work n
at the New Orans Naval Station, his
services were no longer required. Now
there is machinery in the two shops, !
on the dock, in the yard and at the l
coaling plant, to the value of over one
million dollars, also the handling and d
care of the large dock, which in the be-.
ginning was found necessary to havel
two civil service men, is now run with
ordinary mechanics and helpers, di- E

HILDA BERTIN MARRIES.
The Herald is in receipt of a copy of
the Atlanta Journal showing a splen
did photograph of Miss Hilda Bertin,
n. the accomplished and talented daugh
as ter of Madam Bertin, one of our form
a- er Algerines, and her husband, Joe
h Freed. The wedding took place in At
te lanta before Judge Orr. Miss Bertin
and her husband are members of the
Winning Widow Company who will be
at the Crescent Theatre week of De
cember 8th. It is stated that arrange
ments are being made by Miss Bertin's
ie many friends to give her a monstrous
X welcome on their opening night. Miss
Bertin will be remembered as having
appeared often on our local stage,
when she was an amateur, and at that
di- time success was predicted for her,
'h and it is gratifying to her many friends
to know that she has reached the cov
a- eted goal. The following clipping is
n- taken from the Atlanta Journal:
'- .Another popular song hit will be
a- added to the many musical numbers of
1e 'The Winning Widow' at the Lyric
n, theater for the first time at Thursday
s, matinee. It will be "We're Married
s Now," and will be sung by Miss lHilda
n Bertin, the colleg. girl, and Joe Freed,
n the college boy. It was given a full
u dress rehearsal before Judge Orr at 10
e o'clock in the morning.
k "This is just a roundabout way of
saying that Miss Bertin became Mrs.
1- Joe Freed. Those present were Mr.
2- and Mrs. H. L. Smith and Miss Leona
o Thompson, all of the same company,
s and G. V. O'Grady. The party repair
, ed to a Peachtree cafe and there en
y joyed a wedding breakfast. Miss
,e Thompson was the only one that could
n not enjoy herself. She mourned her
e room-mate so, she said."

I DRAINAGE BACK OF ALGIERS.
I Jhe proposal made by the Sewerage
and Water Board to the City Council
that the city contribute the amount of
t $8,750 per annum toward the opera
tion and maintenance of the drainage
system which the Jefferson-Plaque
mine Drainage District proposes to in
stall at the intersection of the Bayou
Barataria and Harvey's Canal for the
purpose of draining and reclaiming the
entire section back of and below Al
giers was considered by the water and
I drainage committee of the Council at
Sa meeting held yesterday, and was fa
vorably reported. A. Hero, president
of the Jefferson-Plaquemine District
Board, was present, and stated that
the establishing of the project means
millions of dollars to the parish of Or
leans and the city of New Orleans., It
will reclaim and make available for
cultivation about eleven thousand
acres of the most valuable and pro
ductive land just back of Algiers, in
the parish of Orleans; about 9,100
acres in Jefferson parish and about
17,100 acres in the parish of Plaque
mines. He said the land that would be
reclaimed in Orleans parish alone
would add millions of dollars to the
property values of this parish, besides
enabling that splendid land to be put
under cultivation and to contribute to
the business and wealth of the city
proper. Superintendent George Earl,
of the Sewer and Water Board, coin
cided with the statements of Mr. Hero
and said this was a most important
piece of work, but that in its present
state of finances the Sewer and Water
Board is not able to finance it, and it
had, therefore, been referred to the
Council, with the hearty approval of
the mayor. He said it would not only
help the drainage system on the other
side of the river, but would add large-.I
ly to land values.
IMMIGRATION STATIpN FIXTUREIlS c
Plans and specifications for the ifar- d

gration Redfern. It is Capt. Redfern's I
intention to have everything in read -
ness for the opennlg of the station
about the middle of January. 'Con
tracts to supply everything needed for
the dormitories and other babildings on
the grounds will be received, and the
head of the New Orleas station I
sending the plans and speecifications to
Washington for approval.
Work on the different buildlngs on

PROBAULE REDUCTION IN WATER
A reduction of 25 per cent in service
charge for the water consumers of the
city was decided upon at the meeting
of the sewer and water board held Frm
day. Secretary Shields8 preseeted at
the last meeting of the executive com
mittee a statement that collections to
date of service charges in the estab
lished water rates, as compared with
the cost of malitaining and operation
wouald probaly Justify this reduction
with the coming year. After consid
eration of the subject the executive
committee recommended the reduction
and the board adopted it. This means
that instead of paying $1 quarterly for
service charges, as has been the rule,
the eonsumer will only have to pay 75
cents after Jan. 1, 1913.
"This action shows what the sewer
and water beard is trying to do for
the people," said Secretary Shields,
"and New Orlans is now getting the
purest and cheapest water of any city
in the United States."
