Lake Front Protection Levee
Mr. Cockrem said be had obtained certain
plans and estimates of the City Surveyor
which he wished should he placed on record
and printed in the proceedings.
They were as follows:
„ Surveyor's Office
June 13, 1871. ,
Hon. John Cockrem, Administrator of improve
Sir—I n view of the late overflow of 1647
acres of valuable improved property, I
would recommend that the protection levee
along the lake shore be commenced with
out delay, in connection with the levees
from the ridge to intersect it at the lake
shore, and suitable draining engines be pro
vided at an early date. ^The Metairie ridge
can not he depended upon any longer as
the north line of defense against lake
waters, as the water was within one foot
and three inches of passing over the ridge,
and in my opinion a north or northwest
wind at the time of its greatest height (Fri
day night, Saturday night and Sunday eve
ning) would have forced the lake water
over the ridge: and again, the city owns
but a small portion of the ridge, and has, in
consequence, only jurisdiction of such por
tion as lays in the park. I would suggest
that all protection levees built in future be
of sufficient width at the top to form road
ways, thereby giving a surety that they
will be cared for nnd protected.
In corclusior, I beg to urge the re 'essitv
of raising and strengthening all protection
levees along the navigation canals, that all
additional work may become firm and solid
before the September storms.
W. H. BELL, City Surveyor.
Surveyor's Office, >
June 14,1871. 1
Hon. John Cockiem, Administrator of Improve
Dear Sir—I have the honor, in com
pliance with your request, to submit the
accompanying approximate estimate and
profiles of the probable cost of a system of
draining canals and protection levees north
of the Metairie ridge, and north and south
of Gentilly ridge, also shelled roadways
over all, including upper and lower pro
posed levees south of the ridges. After
careful examination of the swamp bottom
and lake bottom. I find the sand in the lake
bottom to be a lar superior material for the
construction of a solid, compact levee than
the -roots and vegetable matter of the
swamp lying in from the lake margin. By
advancing the work into the lake a clean
front is obtained, thereby rendering it more
pleasant as a place of resort. Should an in
land line be adopted, from four to six hun
dred acres of land would be rendered useless
and still some protection he required for the
slope fronting the lake, as during storm*
the water is four feet over the land with
heavy seas running far inland. Should a
long front slope or beach he attempted the
levees would require to be nearly double
the height of one with a revetment, as ex
perience teaches that sea embankments
with long slopes require greater height in
proportion than those protected by revet
ments nearly perpendicular, and I am in
clined to doubt if the vegetable matter con
tained in the swamps bordering the lake
shore would preserve itself even at a slope
of seven to one without reveting.
Great dependence has heretofore been
placed on the Metairie ridge as a north line
of defense against the storm waters of Lake
Pontchartrain; the water of last Friday and
Sa'urdav nights, and Sunday morning, rose
to within one foot and three inches of its
top, and in several low places passed over
i'. Had a north ora northwest wind pre
vailed for a few hours, the waters would
have passed its cfest in a continuous sheet.
Another objection to the ridge, as a protec
tion levee, is that the total distance along
Metairie and . Gentilly ridges, from upper
proposed levee to lower levee, being about
29,000 feet, of which the city has jurisdiction
over only 1500 feet, that being the City
Bark, the balane| being private property
------ 7 . . WVV U* "1" 1
and cemeteries, where any attempt
flt flimincr Fa iFu linirrliF aw»p the
at adding to 'its height ' over
graves would be met by stubborn
resistance. The area lying between the
ridge, lake shore and upper and lower
protective levee contains /218 acres, cer
tainly an amount of land which when re
claimed will contribute in a great measure
to the proposed improvements. I have also
included in the estimate the cost of two
sets of lock gates and bridges across the
New canal and Bayou St. John in line witli
the levee. The lock gates would be re
quired only during high water in the lake.
In view of the fact that the construction
of the lake levee will shorten the line of de
fense and that all protection levees should
be of sufficient dimensions to have road
ways on them, I would recommend that
the dimensions of levees be as shown by ac
companying profiles. I would also suggest
that provision be made to have the drain
ing machinery completed about the same
time as the levees. The estimate for shell
roads comprises a distance of I6 2 ij miles.

Upon these estimates Mr. Cockrem offered
the following resolution:
Resolretl, That the Mexican Gulf and
Lake Borgne Canal Company be and they
are hereby authorized to commence work
immediately on the lake shore protection
levee, under the direction of the Adminis
trator of Improvements and City Surveyor,
according to plans and specifications on tile
in the office of the City Surveyor.
Mr. Shaw moved the passage of the reso
Mr. Cockrem seconded the motion.
The Mayor: Before the vote is taken. I
would ask the postponement of the resolu
tion. It involves an expenditure of twen
ty-five hundred thousand dollars for a work
not necessary, being for a protection levee
outside of the shore of Lake Pontchartrain.
The reasons which are assigned by the en
gineer I think are fallacious and incorrect.
I would like to hear other engineers of the
city and the public generally discuss this
matter before it is acted upon. I believe it
would be a suicidal policy to enter upon
this work in the present embarrassed con
dition of the city. It is not necessary,
when for a hundred thousand dollars
ample provision can be made against over
flow by putting locks in the canals. At all
events, I suggest it would be proper and
expedient not to spring this matter thus
suddenly on the public, but to hear their
views on the subject. If they think favor
ably of it, I and everybody else will
acquiesce. A "protection levee" is a very
enticing sound, and without knowing what
kind of a protection levee is contemplated,
many would be in favor of it, when they
would not if they knew where that levee
was to be. A protection levee should of
course be constructed at once, but this will
not he a protection levee. I ask that these
documents be printed and laid over till
next week. *
Mr. Lewis : I have always been in favor
of a protection levee around the city, and I
think during the last ten days the question
has been pretty well discussed through the
press. VV hen this matter of drainage was
before the Council previously, I voted
against putting the Lake Borgne and Mex
ican Gulf Canal Company to work other
than on a protection levee. I am of the
same opinion to-day. But I am willing
that they should go to work at once on a
protection levee according to the plans and
estimates of the City Surveyor. I think it
is needed. I do not believe there is a paper
in this city that has not spoken in favor of
this protection levee. Let it cost what it
may, I believe it is the opinion of the peo
ple that there should be a protection levee.
They say they want it, and as they will
have to pay for it, I am in favor of giving
The Mayor said he had sent out letters to
prominent citizens and engineers, asking
their opinion on the question. If they were
favorable, the Council could act understand
ingly, but he did not think the Council tin"
derstood the magnitude of the job they
were going into.
Mr. Shaw: This subject cf a protection
levee has been before the public long
enough. It is almost the universal opinion
that this thing must be done, and two years
ago the Council passed an ordinance to do
this very thing. Why it was not then done I
can not well state. Still, when the Mayor tells
us he wishes us to postpone a matter of this
sort, in order to have the documents printed
and read, I can not resist a proposition of
that kind, though I believe the Council is
ready to commit itself to a prosecution of
this work; and in yielding to a postpone
ment I only yield until the next meeting.
I think the conviction of the necessity of
this work is so strong that we are ready to
The Mayor said he did not think any
harm could arise by waiting till the next
meeting. In the meantime the public
would be informed what kind of protection
levee was proposed. A protection levee he
himself was strongly in favor of; the only
question was, what kind ?
Mr. Bonzano said he had asked the Sur
veyor if he had consulted any of his
brethren in the profession on this subject.
He replied that he had, ami had also con
sulted the best engineering works of foreign
authors. From the Administrator of Finance
he (Mr. Bonzano) learned that similar
works had been constructed in New Jersey.
Mr. Walton said the Administrator was
mistaken. The levee he spoke of as having
been built in New Jersey was not made in
the water, and that was the difficulty in his
mind about the present plan He did not
pretend to scientific knowledge, but his
common sense led him to doubt whether a
levee built out on the lake shore would he
as permanent as inland. While he was in
favor of a protection levee aud of putting
this company to work as quickly as they
could, he seriously doubted whether putting
a levee out in Lake Pontchartrain was go.

Mr. Cockrem' introduced the following
Resolved, That thfe .Administrator of Im
provements be aud is hereby directed to
notify tbe lessees of the>New Canal Com
pany and the lessees of the Canal Caronde
let and Bayou St. John gation Com
pany to raise and strengthen die levees on
both sides of said canais, to tn* height of
two feet above Metairie ridge, as established
by bench stone in the City Park, and to a
width of ten feet on the top, with suitable
base and proper slope of at least tv^ to
one, the work to be performed to the satV
faetion of the Administrator of Improve*
ments and the City Surveyor.
Filling Canal Street Drain.
By Mr. Shaw:
Resolved. That the Survevor be instructed
to report to the Council at' the next meet
ing, a plan to close and fill up the canal on
Canal street, from Claiborne street down,
replacing the same by culverts on both sides'
of Canal street, or by a canal on Banks
street, as he shall find most advisable.
The Mayor suggested that steps should
be taken to ascertain from the City Rail
road what part of the expense they would
pay. If the canal were filled up they would
be relieved of tbe necessity of running their
railroad on piles, and they could afford to
pay tbe greater part of tbe expense.
The suggestion was agreed to. and the
resolution was adopted.
Mr. Shaw said he noticed in the proceed
ings of the Council, published this morning,
a slight error. The report said that on the
question of taking steps to raise the injunc
tion of the Republican Printing Company,
he indorsed the Mayor. The motion he did
make was. that the subject should be post
poned, as he thought much more serious
and important subjects were before the
Council. He did not indorse the course of
the Mayor, although no doubt both the
Mayor and the Republican Printing Com
pany could get along very well without his
indorsement; but he looked upon the whole
thing as a tempest in a teapot, aud he now
moved that the whole subject he dropped,
litigation and everything else. The Attor
neys of the Republican Printing Company
had gone too far in Saying that to pay these
few little printing bills, already incurred,
would be a contempt of the injunction;
the other hand, he did not understand the
injunction to prevent the Council inserting
its advertisements in the newspapers. It
applied simply to the ordinary public print
ing of the Council.
Mr. Lewis said a good many blanks were
used iu the Recorders' offices, and on one
occasion (during the session) he applied to
the Republican and they could not do tllem.
Mr. Shaw replied in that case the Admin
istrator could get the work done elsewhere,
and no action for damages would lie.
The motion to drop all proceedings in
relation to the injunction was carried.
The Major said: In the proceedings yes
terday there was laid before the Council a
communication from the special attorneys
of the city in the suit of Mrs. Gaines, in
which we were informed of a judgment
against the city iu the sum of over $125,000.
and of an application for a suspensive ap
peal so as to bring the case before the Su.
preme Court of the United States. The
amount of this judgment is made up, as
stated by the attorneys, of value of rents of
this proj»erty, $84,800. Now, as this property
by the testimony aud by the evidence of
everybody who has testified, is not worth
more now nor has ever been worth more
than fifteen hundred dollars, and by this
judgment the city is made to pay twenty
four hundred dollars a year rent for this
property thirty-six years, the extraordinary
character of the decision may be appreciated.
Then, in addition to this, the city is con
demned to pay interest on those rents,
amounting to $72,800 for the same period.
Thus, the city is made to pay $2400 a year
rent for thirty-six years on land wo.-th at
this time little more than half the annual
rent charged. The city has delivered up to
Mrs. Gaines also buildings on this laud
which cost thirty or forty thousand dollars
or more. Judge Bradley to-day fixed the
appeal bond to be given in this case at
$250,000. Our attorneys expected, consid
ering it was only an appeal bond,
given by a corporation, that it would lie fixed
at much less than the amount of the judg.
ment. M ith much difficulty they have in
duced Judge Bradley to reduce the bond to
two hundred thousand dollars, which bond
must be given on the property of the city
of New Orleans, which would be seized
wherever the marshal could lay hands on
it. The security ha<l to be given jointly
and in eoiiuo, and the bond must be filed
tins week. '
Mr. Walton said he had always supposed
that this judgment of Mrs. Gaines was
founded on some justice, but the Mayor's
statement of the character of tlie decision
given was perfectly startling.
The Mayor said a gentleman who owned
one square on each side of this propertv,
larger than that awarded to Mrs. Gaines,
told him. only a short time ago, that he
appraised his lots at less than two thousand
On motion of Mr. Cockrem the Mayor
and Administrators of Finance anil Ac
counts were requested to obtain bonds and
to take all necessary steps lor that purpose.
The Mayor said a document had just this
minute been handed to him. which came in
singularly apropos in this connection. It
was as follows:

Washington, June 10.—The Ku-Klux
committee have taken a large amount of
evidence yesterday and to-ilav. hut none of
it appears to he uew or important, aud is m
the main made up of opinions and hearsay.
To-day several South Carolina State offi
cials testified. Ex-Governor Parsons, of
Alabama, who recently became a Repub
lican, was examined, and stated that lie
was of opinion that a Ku-Khix organiza
tion existed in that State estimated to lie
8000 or 10,000 strong; had heard from a
witness that the organization numbered
some 1*2.000 in Georgia, with headquarters
in Atlanta. Senator Spencer, on the con
trary. gives his Republican contradiction of
this statement by declaring that Alabama
is one of the most peaceable States in the
Union. In answer to a question as to
whether this committee of investigation
was proper and important, Governor Par
sons replied that it was, to show the country
whether the reports daily heard from the
South detailing outrages were true or not,

if for no other purpose. When the South
