VOL XXVII JULY 17. 1919 No. 10
A FERRY FRANCHISE.
A ferry franchise is soon to be sold between New Orleans, (Walnut
Street) and Westwego. The advertisement regarding the sale of this
franchise is being published in the papers preparatory to receive bids for
the operation of this ferry line. It has also been pointed out that the
same old prices that have been in vogue for the past fifteen or twenty
years, are still to be maintained in the new franchise and are to continue
for fifteen more years.
Will the live, wide-awake people of Jefferson Parish stand for a
condition of this kind? Will Jefferson Parish stand for going backward
twenty or thirty years instead of making marks of progress? Will the
people of Jefferson Parish allow a company to saddle upon them an addi
tional ferry tax that means further burden on every piece of merchandise
that is brought from the city and an additional tax on every piece of pro
duce that is taken out of Jefferson Parish over this ferry.
In another section of our paper this week, we are publishing a let
ter from one of our prominent men, who makes a very
good point regarding the sale of this franchise, should there be a possi
bility of another sale of franchise at Canal street and Third District fer
ries. The point brought out is this,-that if the Walnut street ferry fran
chise is sold at cretain prices, for transportation of persons and vehicles,4
that have been maintained for the past fifteen or twenty years, and a
few years later a franchise will be sold for the Third District and Canal
street ferries at prices lower than those in the Walnut Street franchise,
there would be a possibility of the purchasers of the Walnut Street franchise
"hollering their heads off" because a franchise has been sold at the Canal
and Third District ferries at a less price than maintaining in Walnut
street and thereby would operate against the Walnut street ferry.
Mr. John R. Norman, who has always taken an active interest in the
big things for Algiers that crop up occasionally, stated that he would
shortly draw up a petition to be presented to Commissioner Glenny and
signed by prominent citizens in Algiers, calling the attention of the com
missioners to the fact brought out in the above paragraph so that men
tion could be made in the sale of the Walnut street ferry franchise that
the rate to be incorporated in this franchise at Walnut street ferry to
have no connection or bearing with the prices to be put in any other
franchise for any other section of the city.
The Herald has already received sufficient support and assurance
from the good citizens of Algiers that every honest effort will be made
to prevent the sale of another franchise for the Canal street and Third
District ferries. The people of Algiers stand directly with the Herald
in its movement to create a commission through the Legislature, whereby
the city of New Orleans may become the owners and the operators of the
Third District and Canal street ferries for the good of and the benefit
of the people and our commercial advancement. The prices that we are
paying today for the transportation of persons and freight to cross our
ferries are not only additional taxes upon the people of Algiers,
amounting to many millions of dollars during the life of each
franchise, but these same conditions are becoming I_ greater barrier to
our commercial advancement. If the people of Algiers want to see the
west side of the river succeed, they must remove this great barrier of this
extra tax, which we have been paying so many years.
At the next session of the Louisiana Legislature, the Algiers people
must speak, and it must be through this next legislature that we will be
glvn the commission for the operation of our ferry systems. It is high
time that we begin to take an active interest in affairs of this kind.
