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.
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
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
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,
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.

Now on Exhiition at 610-612 Canal
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.
A very interesting meeting of the
Mount Olivet branch of the Woman's
Auxiliary was held at the rectory last
Tuesday night, after which light re
freshments were served.

Thanksgiving, :lll, was a time of
kindly thought and helpful deeds at F
the Belleville School. 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
