Conductors Should
Use Common Sense
Sunday morning Mr. Tony Con
neno of 521 Lamarque St., boarded
a street car with two heavy grips on
his way to Gretna to catch a T. & F.
train. In his rush from the house
he had neglected to take small
change to pay his fare. He tender
ed a five-dollar bill to the conduc
tor, and as the conductor had no
change. Mr. Conneno was compelled
to get off the car.
While we understand it is part of
the franchise that the company is
compelled to furnish change to the
extent of $2.00 only, we feel reason
ably sure that Mr. Burgis of the Rail
way Company would have forgiven
this conductor for carrying the man
to the depot and trying to get change
there. The company or conductor
would have been out but five cents
and it would not have caused the
great inconvenience and disappoint
Rules are rules, but common sense
and good judgment are always re

Hennen Block Now [
Canal Bank Building
It wasn't so many years ago that 1
the Hennen building was built and
the wise men of the city wagged
their heads and said even so modest
i skyscraper as this could never be
t commercial success in New Orleans.
But it has had to be enlarged, to
neet the growing demands of the I
:ity and of the Canal Commercial
bank, which purhacsed it for its I
uew home.
.The enlargement was accomplish
ad by addition of another story,
building of an annex and the bridg- 1
ing over of Varieties Alley to con
sect with the old Cora building. The
total cost of the work is about $660,- 1
00. This does not include the cost
Af the banking fixtures.
The transition of the Hennen build
ing into the up-to-date Canal-Com
mercial building represents not one
,peration but a series of operations.
First the old hydraulic elevators

electril elevators. One by one they
were converted, and extended to the l
!leventh story. Then corridors were
nit through the main Hennen build- 1
ing and bridged across into the Cora
uilding. The first floor of the
,ora building had in the meantime I
)een prepared for conversion into
he new boiler room.
Then bathrooms were put on every
foor instead of being concentrated
n the eleventh story; a new system
,f plumbing was put in and the!
iulding was completely re-wired for
electrical fixtures.
With this done, it was possible to
proceed to construdtion of the an

Street Not Used

A public effort was made a short
time ago by a few residents down
the coast and other outlying sections
to have the city "set aside" the pres
ent Pound Ordinance which was
passed Sept. 5th, 1917, but only en
rorced since the O. D. A.'s have been
in office.
Mr. Geo. Ricks, the new pound
keeper, is doing excellent work and
the residents of Algiers who are
making an honest effort to improve
the appearance of our district, are
grateful to Mr. Ricks and our police
ror their good work in enforcing the
old ordinance.

The entrances to the building will

of 405 Pelican Ave., an ex-saloon
keeper was arrested by Prohibition
officers for the violation of the Vol

of whiskey and a small drinking
glass. The arrest was made some
where near the river front, and it
was necessary to give chase as Ter

At headquarters Terrebone made
a statement that he had been engag

months, and that he was selling the
stuff at thirty-five cents a drink.
Besides the liquor recovered, there
was also a small book in which
Terrebone kept the accounts of
those who owed him for drinks.

our great port facilities could be in

whirves in Algiers where ships could
discharge and take on cargoes either
from shore or from lighters. It is
stated that M.r. McClosky is very
much in favor of the plan. Ir.
Lawton also took up the matter of

Mr. Peter Lawton,

Dear Sir: Your letter advising of
a meeting of Algiers citizens in re
the new ferry franchise, and their
invitation to have me address them
on the subject, has been received.
The invitation to address those in
terested is duly appreciated; how
ever, I don't think it quite proper at
this time for me to accept. If you
will permit a suggestion. I would say
this-let your committee investigate
very thoroughly all conditions per
taining to the ferry proposition, de
cide what method or plan would
best suit your people, and then con
fer with this department. I assure
you I will be'very glad to cooperate
in the plan that will be substantial
and best suited, and when that is
decided upon, we will proceed to its
My personal opinion at this time
is municipal ownership- a ferry and
its benefits for a ferry-using people.
However, that is only my opinion.
I shall be very glad to have your
Ideas on the matter as soon as you
are prepared to give them.
Very truly,
