Miss Galleys school duties called her beck to the normal oe nun attoernoo, and Mles fls nii w e Mrs. Joins' eest some ten daysag THE ITEM AGAIN. It is now a common thing for the Algiers business men to be misquoted in the Daily Item. This has been going on to such an extent that many of our business men are becohming very indignant regarding this matter.. On sev eral e.ccasions The Herald has ponited out where several so-called interviews were published in the Item from some of our people, and in each instance they were denied absolutely by the parties who were supposed to have given the interview. The first supposed interview took place with Joseph Tallon, who denied that he had even spoken to the Item reporter upon the subject he was quoted. Then comes an interview with Mrs. J. E. liuckins, who also denied that the gave out the interview that was published by the Item. Mr. Charles Cieutat of the Algiers Manufacturing Company is lquotcd by the item regarding the increase of salaries of the firemen of the Sewerage and Water Board as saying: "I look on the raise as a political expedient of the moment to counteract any forces that may be working against th.l Ring. I wish I had a job there myself." Mr. t'ieutat absolutely denies that he had made these statements to any Item reporter. 'ir. Frank C. Duvic, our hardware merchant, is quoted by the item as fol lows: " 'I see by the morning papers,' says Frank C. Duvic, a businssý, n:an of Algiers, 'that the Sewerage and Water Hoard has reconmmended an inrease of over $11.0t'0 in its monthly pay roll, while we in Algiers can't, inl stven years. get $.:".,0,i t," for a public park.' " .r. I)uvic( stated tiha the Item re porter was in his place and he refused absolutely to give him any ilntervi,,\ on the subject, except he stated to the reporter that the questions he had asked him he was in no position to answer, and ipreferred to see Mr. Lennox before lie ga e out any interview. How lie could have bet-i quoted in his way is beyond all his reason, as no mention was made of a public park or of $511,.iItJ or any other subject with this young energetic reporter. Tli, last fake interview published by the Item is with Joseph WV. Lennox. who i.s president of the Algiers Improvement Assoiiation. The I:em says of Mr. Lennox as follows: "Lennox Patient Sinee .\ppointment.-- We are not going to push the ('anal street ferry company for improvements. We don't want to antago nize them. By conservative measures we may accomplish something. If we get results within six months from some of our demands we shall think that we have done well.'-President I. W. Lennox of the Improve ment Association. "Mr. Lennox, prior to October 17, the day of his appointment to the Sewerage and Water Board by Mayor Behrman, was an ardent advocate of radical ferry reform. Mr. Walter J. Verlander, manager of the Canal street ferry, is councilman from the Twelfth Ward, and a close ally of Mayor Behrman, who appointed Mr. J. W. Lennox to the Sewerage Board. "Since Mr. Lennox's appointment he has been counselling patience." Of the above interview, Mr. Lennox has the following to say: "I was called up a few nights ago by this reporter of the Daily Item and asked what would take palce at the Algiers Improvement Association. I told the gentleman that if he wanted to know what would take place he would be welcome to come there, and the secretary would be glad to give him such information as he desired. He then asked me what would be done about the ferry franchise. I stated." says Mr. Lennox, "I did not care to be quoted in the matter. He then asked me who was chairman of the committee. I told him it was Mr. Mahoney. He then again asked me my opinion as to several things regarding the ferry franchise, and I again told him I refused to be quoted on the subject, and started to hang up the receiver when he again asked me several questions, and the only statement I made regarding the meeting Monday was that if he wanted any information thereon to come to the meeting, as I absolutely refused to be quoted.". Mr. Lennox made this denial before the members of the Association Mon day night, when he stated: "Gentlemen, you may realize my surprise when I was told the Item had published an interview with me regarding my position toward the franchise of the Southern Improvement and Ferry Company." Rev. A. J. Schliesser of the Algiers Lutheran Church is also quoted in the Item as saying: "No Rublic utility regulated by such a body as the Railroad Commis sion could'give such abominable service, fall so short of its franchise and hold its franchise." Rev. Mr. Schliesser, when asked regarding the above interview, stated pos itively that he had had no such interview with the Item reporter. He did not, in his conversation, mention anything about the Railroad Commission, but he was asked by the Item reporter what he thought about the lights on the ferry, and says he stated to the reporter that they could be better. He was also asked about the steep grades and other accomodations, which he also criti cized, but as to the interview, as published, Rev. Mr. Schliesser stated that it was positively incorrect. THE ALGIERS SIMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION On Monday night the regular month ly meeting of the Association was held in Pythian Hall, and quite a good deal of routine business was disposed of and some important matters taken up. The committee having in charge the matter of the erection of a school is the vicinity of the Naval Station re ported that the Council committee ha4 approved the erection of a 16-room school instead of a 6-room in that see tion, and it will now be necessary to wait for the appropriation, after which time the building will be erected. The matter of the drawbridge over the Outfall Drainage Canal was again taken up for consideration and almost every member present had something to say as to the best method to be taken in securing this big improve ment. It was pointed out by Mr. Peter Lawton that in getting the right of way for this canal for the city of New Orleans be had found that none of the deeds of the property had any inscrip tion at all showing that the Grand Isle Railroad Company had ever been given a right of way over these prop erties. It was also pointed out that after an examination of the transfers of these different properties to the city of New Orleans no inscription could be found wherein it was stated that the Grand Isle Railroad either had purchased or been granted a right of way. Mr. Lawton further stated that the city of New Orleans was deeded this tract in fee simple and that he believed, and it was the opin ion of Omer Villere, former attorney for the Sewerage and Water Board, the Grand Isle Railroad was a squat ter on this property, notwithstanding that the road had occupied this prop. erty for many years. Joseph W. Len nox. president of the association, was requested by the association to ascer tain from the present attorney of the Sewerage and Water Board the pres ent statue regarding the bridge over the canal, and report back to the as sociatole. A letter was received from the fire Prevestio Bureau, In which it Save its resems why rates had bees raised is that part et Aisrs lust at th- uies. They stated, as there were no water mains within a thou sand feet it was necessary to increase the rates, and they would remain so until the mains were extended. A committee was appointed by the asso ciation to wait upon the Sewerage and Water ,Board to see whether or not these mains could be extended. The Herald was also requested to state to the Algiers people that if there had been any raise in insurance tates any raise reported to the association would receive prompt attention, from this body. The principal matter of the evening taken up was that of the matter of the violation of the franchise by the Southern Improvement and Ferry Co. Martin S. Mahoney, chairman of the committee, stated that he had written a letter to the superintendent of the Southern Improvement and Ferry Co., and having received no reply he urged that the matter now be taken up by the association. The following is a copy of the letter sent to the superin tendent: New Orleans, Nov. 26, 1911. W. J. Verlander, Supt. Southern Imp. & Ferry Co., New Orleans, La. Dear Sir: The committee from the Algiers Improvement Association, of which I have the honor to be the chair man, and which called upon you about a month ago, to advise a readjustment of the grades of the "Passenger and wagon inclines leading to your ferries on both sides of the river," and which you promised to take up with your en gineer at once, have been patiently waiting to hear from You regarding the matter. Unless I hear from you by Tuesday morning next, outlining some plan of action, I will consider the matter off, in so far a your company is concern ed. Hoping to hear from you by the appointed time, I remain, Yours truly, M. . MAHONZY, Chairman at Committee. After some discussion, and again re viewing the shorteomings of the Per ry Company and the violation of their ranchise, it was decded that the or lanal committee o foer ,be anreased to a eemmitte at tea, and that the mnater now be takes up with the City Iglaser esd City Attorme to compel he Southern Improvement and Ferry ýompany to live up to those portions )f the franchise which they are now riolating, and to make such other im provements as the franchise calls for. While on the subject of the ferry, Mr. Frank C. Duvic produced a letter from one of the large sand companies in the city, in which they stated it would not be profitable to them to hsul ,:and to Algiers by mule team, as it would be very expensive, not only to them, but it would make the cost so much greater to Mr. Du\ic that there would be little profit left after his sale. The company urged that in order to oler conme this barrier of the steep grade of the ferry to purchase the sand in carload lots. This is only one of the many things that will be taken up as e\ denuce before the City Engineer and ('ity Attorney to show that there are many reasons why the grades on the approachtes of the ferry should be lessened. The association is making quite a collection of these letters to be used in evidence in this particular. The following members were pres ent: .Judge Thomas F. Maher, Jules itdleltger, Mr. Laumnann, lion. J. P. Vezien, lion. I'. S. Lawton, Hon. M. S. Mahoney, Howard Koppel, F. C. Duvic, J. E. liuckins, Peter E. Muntz, lion. Joseph W\. Lennox, I)r. C. V.

A real live a monster, known as a sea cow, 11 eet 4 inches in length, weighing 1310 pounds, and nearly 200 years old, may be seen at 610-612 Ca nal street, where this monster curiosi ty is now being exhibited. The animal arrived in New Orleans after having finished a successful en gagement at the State Fair. It was captured at Point Isibel, on the Texas coast near Brownsville, several months ago. Ninety-two men and thirty-two seins were employed In placing the sea monster in captivity. It is such a rare specimen that scientists have become greatly interested as the species was believed to have been extinct since 1784, and was never found except around the West Indies and along the South African coast. The animal travels in a tank four teen feet long and containing 1200 gal lons of water. le feeds on vegetables, devouring great quantities of lettuce, a plant it is particularly fond of. The age of the sea cow is estimated by the thickness of its skin and its size. Other species of the sea cow or Sir nekan family are small in comparison. It s stated that the monster may join the scientific family at the Smithso nian Institute, as zoologists connected with that institution have seen it and desire to add it to the collecion there. The cow has been named "Grandfa ther" on account of its age. MOUNT OLIVET NOTES.

Sympathizing eyes had been keenly on the watch for some time to note the deserving poor of the district, and the little observ ers htwded to the committee, this y,-ar, composed of Miss Ethel Rhodes, chair man; Miss Ella M1. Rees, Miss Reene Martin, Miss Grace Averil and Mrs. D)aniels, the name, residence and nuni ber in the family and means of sup port of those whom they thought de- I serving. Slips were prepared by the 3 coummittee and baskets were brought by the little girls. Just after "inter mission" the contributions were hand edt in by those who cared to bring them. They were divided among those to be supplied, according to the needs of the family, and when the scihool came down at noon it was to speed on their way a piroct-ssion oF fort.-eight baskets filled, not Olly with things to eat and to wear, but brimming over with good wishes and kindness of lpulpils and teachers. Later there was dropped in big b:'r rels what the children called "ticke-ts" to the afternoon exercises, seats by potatoes, oranges, apples and onions. In all forty-eight baskets were sent out: one little lad was fitted out with winter "togs; $..7;5 was sent to a local charity organization, and fruit and po tatoes were sent to the Little Sisters of the Poor, St. Alphonsus' Asylum. and the Newsboys' Home. in the last hour of the afternoon the school had the pleasure of .nterrain ing its director, Mr. Frank Hemming, who distributed the forty-six gold pins won by pupils of the school by last session's work. Irrespective of grade, grammar or primary, any pupil of any public school who is, for the entire session, satis factory in scholarship and conduct, and who makes the requisite record in the three athletic events-all-up re lay, goal throwing, and running-re ceived from the Public School Athletic º League a gold pin. This was explain ed. The significant fact that but forty six pins were given out among the 202 pupils' names sent in in Novem ber, 1910, at the beginning of the ses sion, was commented on by Mr. Hem ming, who closed with a brief review of our reasons for being thankful, per - sonal and national.
