BEHRMAN SCORED AT
ALGIERS MEET OF
U. 8. Treasury Needed to *Repair I
Streets Left by Ring, Says
Algiers New Regulars organized
at a meeting held in the Fourth
Precinct of the Fifteenth Ward last
Friday night. An enthusiastic repre
sentative crowd attended the meeting,
which was held at Patterson and Ver
ret streets. The speakers included
Henry Acker, Judge Wynne Rogers,
J. Arthur Charbonnet, Thomas O'Con
nor, John Merkel and Charles Hantel.
"We have done away with the old
system of ward bosses--let us pre
vent Behrman from bringing them
back as he is trying to do," pleaded
one speaker, whose words were re
ceived with applause.
The first speaker of the meeting
was Judge Wynne Rogers of Section
"E" of the Civil District Court, New
Regular candidate for justice of the
Supreme Court. He was introduced
by Henry Acker. Judge Rogers de
clared that as judge of the Civil Dis
trict Court he has given all a square
deal, shown no favoritism, and that
his judgment has not been swayed
A tribute to other candidates en
dorsed by the New Regulars was
paid by Judge Rogers, who declared
he is proud to be associated with
them in the coming campaign. Judge
William A. Bell, he said, is a splendid
man and an efficient judge, and a
worthy man for judge of the Court
of Appeals. Commenting upon Fran

"This new organization." Judge
Rogers said, "will win at the polls
on Sept. 12 if they work together
and stick together. There is a re
port that we can't win in the Fit
teenth Ward, but I don't believe it.
We can win anywhere in the city." 1
Mr. Acker announced that Francis
Williams, who was scheduled to make
an address, was ill and unable to
attend. Thomas O'Connor was Intro
duced as the representative of Mr.
O'Connor aroused the crowd to a
high pitch of enthusiasm as he fired
broadside after broadside at Martin
"At the meeting of the Old Reg
ulars last night," he shouted. "Banker
Behrman posed as a friend of the
union man. Who was it that voted
to keep the wages of the striking

Behrman. When did Banker Behr
man ever espouse the cause of labor

capital and labor?
"Banker Behrman once was shaved
in Algiers. It was good enough for
him then, but now he goes to a

a fancy barber. The fight of two

of free speech and can talk as we
dare without fear of going to jail for'1
it, as was the case three years ago.

Commissioner Maloney Writes Another Long
Letter, But Still Evades Questions
Asked By Algerines
Reiterating his position in favor me
of municipal ownership of ferries in thi
a sizzling statement Saturday. Paul cot
Maloney, commissioner of public the
utilities, attacked the attitude Peter sui
S. Lawton and others have taken in obi
the matter. His statement follows: itra
"The statements appearing in the ha
newspapers of the past several days, nu:
sponsored by Mr. Peter Lawton and fic:
Mr. C.'J. Donner, making accusations we
against the Commission Council and the
more particularly my department, in WI
the matter of ferry franchises, have an
been noted, and I must say that the
claims advanced do not conform to be
the facts in the case. sic
"So that the patrons of the Algiers fet
ferry may be correctly informed as to sic
the real facts bearing upon the issue, en
I will give the following particulars: isi
"Algiers is served by two lines of to
ferries, one that is known as the j w
Third District ferry, operated be- of
tween Barracks street and Oliver Be
street, and the other known as the re:
Canal street ferry, operated from Nt
Canal street to Morgan street. fu:
"The Third District ferry is oper- op
ated by the Union Ferry Company.
This company's franchise expired in mt
1906 and, although two franchises en
for the service were advertised at th:
different times by various adminis
trations, they failed of sale, the prop- tot
osition evidently not appearing Invit- ad
lug. The Union Ferry Company as]
made a proposialon to the council in,
in 1907 to pay the city five per cent thi
of the gross receipts. The records as
show that this arrangement was ac- fal
cepted and the city of New Orleans c'al
has been receiving payments on this
basis since that date. So much for
the Third District ferry, on which to
subject Mr. Lawton, notwithstanding sh
his statements in the newspapers (,iv
asking Illogical questions, has been Ca
fully informed, receiving copies of all the
the documents setting forth the facts
as I have given them, months ago. th
Gave Lawton Chance ye
"The Southern Ferry and Improve- las
ment Company obtained from the on
city of New Orleans in 1906 a 15- bu
year franchise, paying a considera- Mi
tion of $225,000 to operate the ferry
service from Canal street to Morgan ve
street. This franchise expired Dec. DI
31, 1921, and the council, so as to ev
allow Mr. Lawton and his associates or
full opportunity to present their be
reasons for municipal ownership, did Ot
not effect a ehange In the operation th
of the service. This effort on the dii
part of the council to show Mr. Law- I
ton and his associates every consid- to
eration, necessitated allowing the all
present operator an extension as per ne
the conditions of the franchise to
such a time as the future operation Ni
of the service could be determined. ad
"It has been my oipnlon ever since qu
I have taken office that the Canal co
street ferry and the Barracks street glthi
ferry services should be consolidated th
and operated by the city of New Or- ta:
leans. The amount ,required to take co
over the equipment should be includ- mi
ed in our regular budget, and then tri
the receipts of the ferry, less the th
operating expenses, could be applied
to amortising the cost of the entire pa
"I presented this proposition to be
the council. but the other members th
did not think it the proper policy to an
pursue. They did not believe in mu- sa
nicipal ownership of this ferry ser- pr
vice where the city would be involved fel
in the finances.
"I conveyed this information to pr
Mr. Lawton and his associates, and ch
they asnured me that they oud pre- t
waU porn the other mmbers to co
gms the -admd UBto thU o- at
ment they have not accomplished I
this, and the position of the other
commissioners remain the same in
the matter. In the meantime it was
suggested that a commission could
obtain the money needed in the 1
transaction, and that he city would
have no responsibility. But after
numerous conferences with bank of
ficials it was found that the banks I
would not advance the money unless &
the city would stand responsible, I
which was rendered impossible by E
an inhibition in Act 4 of 1916.
"Mr. Lawton, as I understand, has .
been before the Dock Board commis
sioners to have them operate the
ferry, without success, the commis
sioners refusing to consider such an
enterprise. He went before the Leg
islature at the last session seeking
to have enacted a state law which
would put the control and operation
of the ferry service under the Dock
Board, and the plan again failed of
result. The Commission Council of
NI ew Orleans went on record as re
fusing to undertake th- municipal
Soperation of the ferries.
"There are several reasons why I
must hesitate before giving consid
eration to any further statements
that might emanate from Mr. Lawton.i
"One is. as I amn advised. Mr. Law-1
ton in 1910 appeared before the cityi'
administration then in power and
asked for a railroad franchise, agree- l
ing to hid for the grant and pay for
the cost of advertiscing the franchiseI
as required by law. I am told he
failed to carry out this promise. This
ucan be proven.
Says Figures Wrong
"Another is Mr. Lawton presented
to this council a communication
showing his calculations of the finan
cial results of the operation of the
Canal street ferry. He capitalized:
the gross receipts at the rate of six
per cent per annum and alleged that
the net earnings alone for fifteen
years was in excess of a million dol
lars. Such calculations as this dem
onstrated at a glance to acny one of
business experience just how unsound
Mr. Lawton's calculations are.
"In connection with this contro
t versy I wish to say that while the
Department of Public Utilities is
t ever willing to furnish information
t or assist in any undertaking for the
r betterment of the citizens of New
I Orleans, as commissioner I will in
t the future give no consideration to
discourteous communications such as
I have received in the past relating
to ferry franchises, communicationsj
altogether irrelevant and not perti
r nent In the least to the issue.
"The commissioners of the city of
1 New Orleans have a city attorney to
advise them as to the legality of all
e questions which may arise for their
1 consideration. They have a city en
t gineer to inform them and direct
I their deliberations on mktters per
talning to engineering. My authority
comes from the people who elected
me, and my actions in the adminis
Stration are approved or rejedted by
the other members of the council.
I "The council has adopted as its
policy that a franchise combining in
its grant the two ferry services must
be advertised for sale. And further,
the franchise lia o provide that the
amount of money realized from the
sale shall be dedicated to land Im
provements for the benefit of the
I ferry patrons.
"Mr. Klorer, the city engineer, a
practical river man, will make such
I changes and modifications in the
franchise now pending before the
Scomnal as will ender it soend, sad

Judge Martin Samuel Mahoney, 64
years old. formedly judge of the
Second City Court of Algiers. died

his residence. 323 Pelican avenue,
after a brief illness. Funeral ser
vices were held at Holy Name of
Mary (Catholic) Church at 4 o'clock.
Interment in Metairie Cemetery.
.ludge Mahoney was born Nov. 24,
1S55, in the city of New Orleans. He
was educated at the R,,demptorist
parochial school. Jesults' College, in
this city, and also at the University
of Notre Dame of Indiana, from which
institution he graduated in 187S with
high honors, with the degree of
Bachelor of Arts. After his gradua
tion he became professor of United
States History and Geography at
Notre Dame University, and taught
there for ten years.
With the true Southern heart, he
then returned to the South and
accepted a professorship at St. Ed
ward's College at Austin, Texas. He
resigned this to accept a position at
Holy Cross College of this city.
In xSS he gave up teaching and
branched out in the mercantile busi
ness for himself, and for ten years
he carried on one of the largest re
taill grocery stores in our town.
In 189S he retired from the grocery
business and entered the study of
law at Tulane University. He at
tended the class lectures in 189S
1899, and was then commissioned as
a notary public by the Governor. In
1901-1902 he again entered the law
department at Tulane and was grad
uated with the degree of LL. B. In
1902. He was at once admitted to
the bar of the Supreme Court and
immediately began practice. He was
a lawyer of thorough legal training,
as was shown by the decided success
he had made.
He was at one time a member of
the New Orleans School Board. He
did much to merit the praise be
stowed on him for the interest he
had taken. He was a member of the
Alumni of Tulane University and of
Jesuits' College, and a member of
the Ancient Order of Hibernians and
of St. Vincent de Paul Society.

most active members of the Algiers
Improvement Association, of which

DON'T BE AN ANT SLACKER
(By Martha Pontl)
Mrs. J. E. Huckins, chairman of
the Ant Campaign of the Fifteenth
Ward, reports that Algiers is trying
to do her share to do away with the
;Argentine ant, which is a pest to all
families in Algiers and New Orleans.
The Argentine ant causes more
waste than any other insect. If we
would stop for one moment to count
up the different amount of foodstuff
'destroyed by this hideous pest. An
other Important thing, can we count
up the amount of money we have
spent in our homes to get rid of these
If we had the money that we spent
on buying ant poison and ant tape
we would be better off by many dol
lars and would have a nice little
sum saved In the bank for a rainy
So let every citisen of Algiers do
a duty in this big campaign and
give as much as we can afford to
get rid of this terrible pest that
causes so much waste.
When the precinct solicitors and
their numerous workers call at your
door and ask you for a donation do
not refuse them. For such a cause
as this you should be proud to give.
If you have not the change the day
the workers call tell them the day
when they can come again and they
will be more than thankful.
Do not shut the doors on their
face when they tell you why they
are collecting as many of our work
ers having been Insulted In this way
and many other ways.
Just stop for a moment and think
of the time these ladies have given
for the sake of civic pride. These
ladies are not being paid for this
work. They are doing this because
they have civic pride and interest in
their town. If we had a few more
people in our communilty like these
ladies Algiers would be better off.
Many of our citizens are of the
opinion that these ladles are being
paid for canvassing the various
squares, but this is not a fact.
It is the duty of every citizen to
contribute to this cause. Only those
contributing to this fund will have
their homes protected with the poison.
