HAVE NEW WHARF
ON WARRIOR RIVER
Tuscaloosa, March 12,—(Special.)—Ac
cording to announcement made here to
day, Tuscaloosa will in the next few
- months have a new’ wharf on the Warrior
river costing between $15,000 and $20,000,
located a short distance below' Lock 10,
and only a few' hundred feet from the
heart of the city.
It was stated today that the advisory
committee appointed by the city com
missioners would, at a meeting to lie
held In a few days, recommend that the
city float a bond issue to raise funds for
the construction of the w'harf.
It is said that the city will have no
trouble in disposing of the bonds and
that the money w’ould be secured and
the work of actual construction begin
immediately. It is planned to have the
w'harf completed and ready for the hand
ling of freight from the self-propelled
barges of the Alabama-New Orleans
Transportation company by early fall.
The question of adequate wharf facili
ties for Tuscaloosa has been paramount
with the Board of Trade for over a Vear
and a committee from that body has
had the matter under advisement for
sometime, but until now no definite ac
tion had been taken.
It is thought that a municipally owned
wiiarf will prove a paying investment to
the city as well as to the merchants and
other Interested parties.
SAY FRENCH GAINS
Berlin, March 12.—(Via London, 9:10
p. m.)—Although French reports for sev
eral w'eeks have been claiming daily gains
in the Champagne region, it is said in well
informed quarters here that total gains of
the French during the entire battle have
been insignificant, amounting only fo
about 200 feet at three different places.
These positions were abandoned, it was
said, because during the long struggle
the trenches wrere destroyed by shell fire
and rendered useless. The three places
are north of Le Mesnil, north of Beause
jour and northeast of Beausejour.
