MEETS WITH SUCCESS
LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE UNANI
MOUSLY REPORTS BILLS
The Algiers ferry committee, which
presented a bill to the Legislature
last week, directing the Dock Board
to take over and operate the ferries
between Algiers and New Orleans
for the benefit of the public instead
Iof enriching a corporation, has met
!with signal success up to the pres
ent time. The sub-committe of the
ferry committee went to Baton
Rouge last Wednesday to appear be
fore the committee. Addresses were
made by John R. Norman, P. S. Law
ton, Henderson Norman, Hy. Acker,
Chas. Donner, Senator Chas. Hen
ricks and Representative P. F.
O'Donnell. The committee was in
deed pleased to know that Mr. Hen
rricks and Mr. O'Donnell had come
out publicly in favor of the bill now -
before the Legislature, and told the
committee that they would support
it to the best of their efforts.
The bill as presented directs that
the ferry system operating between
New Orleans and Algiers be taken
over, purchased and operated, and
improved, for the benefit of the pub
lic. This bill was printed in full in
the last issue of the Herald. It also
provides that the revenues accruing
from the said ferry system should
not be diverted to any other fund
except for the ferry service and im- nee
During the hearing of the Algiers ch.
committee there were a good many Do
protests against the bill; namely, M,
communications, either telegraphic Mt
or by letter, from Mayor McShane, Or
Commissioners Black and Murphy, ce
and the president of the New Or- m
3eans Dock Board, Mr. Hecht. of
These opponents, who were present se
by letter or telegram only, gave
various reasons against the bill. gl
President Hecht of the Hibernia tel
Bank and Trust Company and pres" In
ident of the Dock Board, gave as GI
I his reason that the Dock Board had go
- too much to do already, but the gr
Algiers people feel reasonably sure th
that the taking over of the to
I ferries would not be giving more w
,(werk to Mr. Hecht that be coud Md
I not well stand. In fact the citisens
a!would almost guarantee that Mr.
t Hecht will not be compelled to put Di
D In any overtime.
Notwithstanding the protests that of
s were presented against the bill, the by
I Alglers ferry committee received a tb
I unanimous report in favor of the bill ly
t and there was not one dissenting it
voioe heard. It was a big victory cc
I for the Algiers committee in the be- or
ginning of this fight. cc
t The bill was introduced by Repre
sentative Archie Higgins of Gretna,
I whose constituents are also inter
l ested in the present ferry system.
P Mr. Higgins brought a similar bill
e before the Legislature two years ago, cl
e but was defeated by only one vote, T
the particulars of which were given D
at the time. In speaking about the
I bill before the Legislature, Represen- n
tative Higgins said that the Commis- b
sion Council is trying to grab the
money derived from the sale of the
franchise and divert it to the general
fund, instead of pattaing it into ferry
betterments, thereby ignoring the
rights and complaints of the Algiers
people. He described the ferry ac-t
commodations as the most flagrant a
eimposition that he has ever wit- b

table with John Zatarain, 828 Verret

being on the table in front of them.
Corposal Hoffman reports that he
is of the opinion that the two men

TO CITY COUNCIL
Condemn Proposed New Franchise.
To the lionorable, the Mayor and
Members of the Commission ilo
Council of tile City of New Or- $5.'
Dear Sir-I have been directed by I'n
the Comnmittee of Seven. which is a
sub-committee of a Committee of
Twenty-one members appointed at a
mass meeting of the residents of Al- "T
giers to look after their interests in an
ferry matters and which su-coiom- \V,
mittee, for one year or more, has de
been in conference with the honor- Hii
able Commission Council. endeavoring al,
to obtain relief at your hands from lnt
existing ferry conditions, to deliver
to the Honorable Commission Council, gi
the following resolutions. unan- a
imously adopted at a meeting of the w.
Committee held in Algiers. this, the hi
19th day of June. 1922:
Be it resolved that this Committee' ti
is unalterably opposed to the sale of he
I any franchise for the operation of
ferries between New Orleans and 10
Algiers and will ever object to and w
oppose the sale of such a franchise. gi
Reserving all of our rights in the ni
future, as we have in the past, to ri
bring about the defeat of the sale of u,
any ferry franchise operating be
tween New Orleans and Algiers. both -
eas residents of the Fifth District of t
this City and as members of the Com- g,
mittee of Twenty-one, we desire here- n
e with to register our unalterable ob
jection and opposition to the pro
. posed advertised ordinance, authoriz
,ing and directing the Commissioner
h of Public Utilities of the City of New
Orleans to advertise for sale at pub
e lic auction to the highest bidder
for an amount not less than $200,- 0
o 000.00, a franchise covering the Canal
Street and Third District ferries,
which ordinance in our opinion, is a
most vicious piece of Municipal leg- i
Islation, containing practically all of
r the objectionable features of the
Canal Street ferry franchise ordinance
d. adopted by the City of New Orleans u
in 1906, concerning which ordinance d
members of this Committee and the,
A people of the Fifth District have,
"' time and again, Justly complained,
but apparently to no avail.
At the last conference the Com-I
" mittee of Seven had with your Hon-If
orable Council, the latter part of May,
r your Honors finally instructed the
Commissioner of Public Utilities to
prepare an ordinance, authorising the
sale of a franchise for the Canal
y Street and Third District ferries for
ea period of fifteen years and Invited
this Committee to join the Honorable
te Utility Commissioner in the prepara
tlon of the franchise, with the dis
re tinct understanding that the assist
ance we would give the Honorable
Commissioner, would in no way com
mit us to your policy, and reserving
e to us the right to go to the Legis
11 lature for such relief as we might
deem advisable in the premises.
in With this distinct understanding,
me unequivocally expressed and accepted.
by this Committee, we conferred with
ad the Honorable Commissioner of Pub
r, lic Utilities and made a number of
ad suggestions and alterations in the,
f. proposed ordinance befose s. Im
r. agine, therefore, our astonishment
d- and disappointment when we read
the proposed ordinance as published
r, in the official journal of the City, to
w realize that only a few of the sug
i gestlons that we considered absolutely
. essential to a proper ordinance was
o incorporated in the proposed published
1st. We suggested that there be
d-*incorporated in the ordinance, made
of part thereof and attached thereto, de
tailed plans and specifications of the
ir- ferry houses, boats, pontoons, bridges,
t etc., as we felt, not only that the
he people of the Fifth District are en
ir titled to know exactly what they are
- to receive and expect from the suc
cessful bidder, but that prospective
st bidders are entitled to such data, for
otherwise they could not intelligently
e determine what their oblgations
Swould be under the franchise. How
ever, no plans or specifications of the
Sferry houses, boats, pontoons, bridges,
Setc., have been attached to and made
part of the proposed ordinance, the
door being thus left wide open for
to worthless boats, pontoons, bridges,
rfavoritism and far worse consae
quences. While this may be the re
sult and effect of this vicious ord
*inace, we are confident you never
Sintended it should be so.-Your at
Stention being called to the fact, the
remedy should follow.
2nd. We suggested penalties for
Sviolatioas of ordinance obligations,
only to ind that the published ord
inance contains no penalties or fines
for violations, by lessee, or ordinance
Sprovisions, except the vague Inoper.
ative obligatlioans of a bond.
Srd. The proposed ordiace con
tatn no forfeiture clause, in the event
of violations of the ordinance, whether
in providing proper boats, pontoons,
bridges or otheriwse.-Why Not?
4th. We suggested, In order that
in future years It might be possible
to intelligently detremine what the
rates, tariffs, etc., should be, that
the lessee be requlred to keep an
aecurate set o nks. wheren shall
wner reno whatever genres. san
