Algiers had its inning Monday th
night regarding the final settlement W
of the ferry matter. At the Avenue
Academy, the Algiers Ferry Commit- R
tee composed of twenty-one citizens
of which nineteen were present, held
a special meeting for the purpose
of taking up and acting finally on the
ferry conditions as they now exist
and the contemplated improvement
being asked for.
At the same time ,the Oakdale Im
provement Association, an organiza
tion of seventy-two Algiers citizens, t
held their meeting, at which time 1E
they endorsed the movements of the tl
Algiers ferry committee and will as- a
sist in going before the council to talk c
for the improvements that are being ii
demanded by the Algiers people. s
During the next five or six days, q
it is expected that some developments
will take place that will let the Al
giers people know finally what may
be expected from the city officials
in our fight for future improvements a
of our ferry service. c
At the meeting of the Oakdale Im
provement Association, more than
sixty of its seventy-two members.
showed the determination of that
body to do something for Algiers. I
and their co-operation with the Al- a
it giers ferry committee will mean
united support and will show our
council that there is a united move- t
ment in Algiers for municipally owned
. ferries.
a The Algiers ferry committe of l
twenty-one has accepted an invita
'e tion from the Association of Com
It merce to confer with its Board of

Levee Board To Pay a
$125.000 For Damage Ce
The Orleans Levee Board must th
pay to Will H. Ward the $125,000
damages which a jury in the Civil pIn
District Court awarded him as com- na
pensation for the land on which Mr. co
Ward's mill stands, and adjacent s1
land owned by him, which was taken mi
by the Levee Board and used for ha
levee purposes. Mr. Ward sued for pa

drawn-out and bitterly fought trial,

Ward's favor for $125,000. so

REHEARING ASKED IN LEVEE
BOARD IN WARD DECISION. P
at
Effect "Most Pernicious" Attorney w
For River Body Insists. 114
ra
"The award of $125,000 to William
Ward, Algiers sawmill owner, by the
state supreme court for property
taken by the Orleans levee board for
levee purposes, virtually eliminates
the levee board from participation in
any dock and levee raising project as
contemplated last week, meat an
Increase in taxation and can only re
sult in the 'most pernicious" conse
quences."
This statement was made Monday
by Arthur McGuirk, attorney for the
levee board, in announcing that he
would immediately seek a rehearing
and will ask that the entire supreme
court of nine judges sit upon the
case when it Is again opened.
If this ruling is to hold, Mr. Mc
Guirk said, there will be nothing to
t prevent a person owning river front
property from erecting a levee far
out in the river, thus reserving for
himself the land right up to the
water's edge with no leve protec
. tion to the citizens of New Orleans,
d as the levee board would not own the
shore property on which to build
i levees.
Questions Decision
. He referred to this in connection
f with the part of the supreme court
e. decision, rendered by Judge John St.
. Paul, holding that only the land from
. the water's edge to the levee "erected
. by the land owner" is public prop
, erty on which levees might be erected.
h "The effects of the decision," Mr.
d McGuirk said, "are so far reaching
)f that it virtually extinguishes both
r- levee and commercial servitudes; It
s- strikes down the levee board and can
at result only in the most pernicious
ly consequences.
to "If this decision is to stand I do
d not see how the people of New Or
td leans are to be protected In their
A lives and property without almost
a- confiscatory taxation. It confronts
17 the people of New Orleans and the
d entire state with a most serious sit
m atlo, because, if men may take
k possession and monopolize the river
n- bank it will take millions to pay for
ed improvements and land for levee
'- sites.
"The cost of actual construction of
to earthen embankment levees is not
tl' high. A comparatively great stretch
th may be erected for $20,000 to $25,000
!x yet if the decision of the high court
a is to stand a matter of 10,000 square
is feet will cost $125,000. That is, in
addition to the cost of the levees will
require $125,000 for land and im
provement to place it upon.
"As there are some 80-odd miles
along the New Orleans river front to
to be protected, it requires no mathe
ed matlcal genius to arrive at the faba
e lous amount, it will require for this
la. protection under the present inade
ry quate method, not to consider the
n. raising the docks and levee protec
at- trons to standard height as advocated
i. by the Mississippi River Commission
t and approved by the levee board last
ad week.
re "Withal, the decision of the court,
il- if it is to stand--and we propose to
'in- break it if possible, will be to para
lyse eforts of the levee board and
et the country district boards as well,
art and block to a serious extent any
," building of new wharves and other
strctares. It also strips the leve
