DUPRE TO FIGHT TO RETAIN NAVAL DOCK Has Already Forwarded Protest to the Secretary of the Navy. A comunication from Congressman H. Garland Dupre to Mayor Behrman, t received Saturday, states that the con gressman had received the Mayor's letter of Friday concerning the remov al of the skilled mechanics from the docks of the naval station at Algiersl thereby rendering it impossible to util ize the dry docks, and that he had im mediately drafted and forwarded a protest to the Secretary of the Navy against such action. Congressman Dupre further added: "On our last visit to Acting Secre tary of the Navy Winthrop, we were given to understand that while the station would be dismantled there would be no unfavorable action toward the docks." The Congressman stated also that he woul keep the Mayor advised con cerning any reply or information re ceived from the department concern ing the subject. THE NAVAL DOCK 18 NOT YET ABANDONED Congressman Estopinal Has Telegram From Washington. Congressman Albert Estopinal was very- much elated Tuesday morning over the receipt of a telegram an nouncing that the report of the New Orleans committee on the Naval Dock will be investigated.

"Albert Estopinal, "New Orleans, La. "Department's instruction New Or leans station were to maintain the dry dock for operation.

"Of course, I realize fully that the naval station is a thing of the past In so far as New Orleans is concern- I ed," said Mayor Behrman Friday morn ing, "and there is no one that can re gret that fact more than myself, for I realize that its loss is a serious blow to the interests of the city. "But the subject of the dry dock is another thing, and if that can be re tained it means much. Its retention will not in any way interfere with or antagonize any other dock interests, and it is the only dock here at present that offers facilities to large ocean ships to have necessary repairs done when they come to this port." The Mayor Friday sent the following letter to Congressman Dupre at Wash ington: "Ne wOrleans, Sept. 29, 1911. "Hon. H. land Dupre, "Member of Congress, "New Orleans, La. "Dear Sir-We learned, some time since, that the naval station here would be abandoned in so far as practical purposes were concerned. But from the information we had we believed that the dry dock would remain equipped and be prepared and in read-! iness for service at all times. This morning I was informed that it Is pro posed to furlough all of the dock em ployes and thus practically put It out of commission absolutely. "It is well understood that it was never intended to have this dock placed In competition with any of our local docks, but its service and neces sity for the larger sea-going vessels were recognized. In order to handle same it Is necessary to have skilled and experienced workmen as mechan ics of that kind are not found readily when needed. The dock has been found to be a most valuable adjunct to the shipping of our port, frequently for these larger vessels. Now, if these trained workmen are furloughed and moved away from New Orleans, this adjunct will be rendered worthless to us. "I have written to Senator Foster and Congressman Estopinal requesting them to interest themselves in the matter, and I am sure that If you can take up the matter with the authori ties in Washington you will succeed in securing for us the necessary relief In the premises. Yours very truly, (Signed) "MARTIN BEHRMAN, "Mayor." HYMENEAL. RHODES-HARTNETT.

NEW 'SUNSET' TRAINS FAST AND BEUTIFUL Southern Pacific-Sunset Route Will Cut Time Between New Orleans and San Francisco Thirty Hours and Connect with Steamships. CARS BEING BUILT OF STEEL AND OF THE LATEST DESIGN6 Excess Fare of $10 Will Be Charged for Extra Comforts and Speed. Mlodern travel, already luxurious, is i to be made even more so by the South ern Pacific, Sunset Route. Plans for s' a new train to run twice weekly be tween New Orleans and Los Angeles and San Francisco call for a cut of thirty hours in the running time be tween the two points. The new sched ule, with its attendant comforts, has * been brought about by the heavy win ter travel between the two points on the Sunset Route, and to care for this,!: new equipment is now be:ng built in the Pullman shops at Chicago. The trains will be all steel. The cars : will be of latest design and will c'on- * tain every comfort now in use on the fastest and best equipped trains, and l many new conveniences in addition. Built for High Speed. The trains will consist of only six cars, and thus the high speed that will be demanded to make the schedule, may be maintained with comparative ease. Each train will carry only a dy namo and baggage car, a diner, threel drawing room sars will be finished in vation smoking car. The sleeping and drawing room cas will be finished in mahogany and other beautiful hard woods and furnished in luxurious i fashion. The sleeping cars will each( contain ten sections, two compart ments and a drawing room. They are being built with an especial regard to the comfort of women, in that the accommodations for them will be most commodious. A ladies' maid, manicure i and hairdresser will aid in caring for the needs of the women. The men also will be well taken care 4 of, there being a barber, shower bath, arrangements for pressing clothes and a stenographer aboard. The berths are to be electric lighted both upper and lower, and electric fans will cool the air of the car. The dust and dirt of transcontlnien tal travel will be eliminated as much as possible by the Installation of va cuum cleaners that will do away with the offensive brushing up of dirt in the cars. At all terminals the trains will be given telephone connections and travelers will be enabled to talk with friends in the city without leaving the cars. Previous Records to be Broken. Service on the "Sunset Limited' will begin December 4 from New Or leans, and the following day from San Francisco. The trains will leave New Orleans at 12:30 noon Mondays and Thursdays of each week and arrive In Los Angeles at 9:15 p. m. every Wednesday and Saturday, and in San Francisco at 11 a. m. the following days. On the eastern trip trains will leave San Francisco at 6:30 p. m. Tuesdays and Saturdays, Los Angeles at 8:30 a. m. the following days, and arrive in New Orleans at 7:30 p. m. every Fri day and Tuesday. The running time between Los Angeles and New Orleans will thus be cut to fifty-six hours and ffty minutes and between San Fran cisco and New Orleans to seventy hours and fifty minutes, or less than three days for the trip that now takes more than four. The luxuries afforded the traveler and the speed attained are such that an excess fare of $10 will be charged between the two terminals. Connections With Steamships. The time of the two trains has been gauged so that direct and quick con nection will be made at both ends of the route with ocean steamships. Trav elers from San Francisco lound for the East and North may take this train and be whirled to the Louisiana me tropolis and there transfer to fast trains or steamships of the Southern Pacific. On the western trip, the man who is hurrying to catch one of the vessels of the Pacific Mail will have an additional day for business and still make his boat. The service when inaugurated will be a unique departure in railroad his tory. The trains will be difflerent from any. other in the United States, the equipment of the latest and best, and every care will be taken for the safety of passengers. "It's the biggest thing ever attempt ed by any railroad," said a Southern Pacifice official. "Of course, there are extra fare trains, but none like these and no railroad ever before made such a cut in the running time as we will make. And we will do it in a fashion that really will add to the safety of travel, as our trains will be especially safegnarded and watched from one end of the line to the other." $1,000 to Charity. :..t Voting in Our Fifth Annual Contest Commences To Morrow Morning And Closes Dec. 31, ý_ ý: 1911. 2 :: This contest will be conducted on the same : . plans as our previous contests, voting to be done .2 2 on dack of sales slips, ad deposited in Voting : .: Boxes, which will be placed in variour sections :": 22 of the store.

At present the only way the children can have the benefit of ice water is when they contribute to a fund among themselves for the purchase of ice, and those who are unable to con tribute suffer humiliation in the thought that they are drinking charity water.

The necessity for Ice in the public schools in summer, the Mayor said, is as urg ent as is the necessity for coal in the winter months. Mr. Reuther told the Mayor that he recently tested the temperature of the city water and found that it averaged eighty-tfour degrees.
