Three Arrested For
With the arrest of Steve and Joe
Q~artano and Louis Burgan, three
Algiers men. Sergeant Cripps of the
Eighth Precinct Station believes he
has in custody a trio that know
something about the burglary of the
Harper Garage at 300 Opelousas
avenue last Tuesday night. -The men
were Jailed Thursday at 11 o'clock,
when they were taken in custody at
the ferry landing, head of Morgan
street, by Sergeant Cripps, Patrol
men DeRocba and Harvey and Super
numerary Payne. The men were in
an automobile, which, when searched
by the police, was found to contain
ten of the inner tubes and three cans
of radiator liquid that had been
stolen from the Harper garage. The
homes of the three men were
searched and a Fisk casing, also
from a-3 u per pianes, was
fonnd in Ste Quartano's homene
1418 Teche street. A lot of goods,
which were identified as stolen
property, was found in Joe Quar
tano's home, 1343 Teche street. Bur
gan lives at 424 rtingier street.
The trio denied any connection 'with
the burglary of the Harper place and
explained the presence of the stolen
articles by saying they 'had been
given to them by a negro. They
were charged with having stolen
goods in their possession and are
now under bonds awaiting trial.

To Abolish Second
The Algiers citizens are much
aroused regarding an effort being
made at Baton Rouge to abolish the
Second City Court. The matter has
been recommended to the sub-com
mittee of the committee on judiciary
of the Constitutional Convention.
This subject has been brought up
on several occasions, and the argu
ment heretofore put up by the Algiers
people, that courts were never estab
lished as revenue producers, but for
the convenience of the public, has
been able to retain this court. Should
the Constitutional Convention abolish
this court, and with the recorder's
court also discontinued, we would
have left in Algiers "a pretty good
looking courthouse, all dressed up.
