LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE.
THE THIRD DISTRICT FERRY.
Editor The Herald.
Dear Sir-As there seems to be a
mlisapprehension in some quarters as
to what I said on the subject of thei
proposed sale of a new franchise for
he Third District Ferry. at the last
feeting of the Algiers Improvement
Association, I would like to re-state
what I did say and what I believe is'
necessary to have embodied in the pro-o
3oeed specifications, if a really good
ferry service is to be secured at that
In the first place, it is absolutely
iecessary that the boat to be used will

of the river, so that lumber wagons and
the like, which cannot turn around on
any boat, can be accommodated. This
is not possible under present condi
'tions, which compels such trafc to now
see the Canal street ferries, where thle
boats do land that way. The reason
why this is not done at the Third Dis
trict ferry landing is on account of a
strong and treacherous eddy which ex
ists on the Algiers side, and the prox
imity of the big 8. P. ferry-slip to the
head of Olivler street, where this mu
nicipal ferry lands.
Any tug pilot in the harbor will
bear me out in the statement that in
order to land 'bow up stream" on this
side of the river, the present type boat
would have to be carried below the S.
P. ferry slip, which would be utterly

the present type, lying as at present,

A boat of this character, somlewhat
larger than the ferry "Tlhos. Pickles"
and of greater relative power, and as
commnlodated with a double wagon
gangwaay on both shidMt of the river,
a hich would work both ends of the
boat situlltaneously. would, by herself,
nI.ke very inarly as good tmnle as is

The passengers should te carried

deck on t'Is city site, over a narrow
and relatively inexplensive steel via
duct over the railroad tracks, to the
sidewalk near -'splanade street. The!
wagon gangways should not have more,
than a four per cent grade at extreme
low water, should be of steel, and have
screws at every section, on either -rie
osote or concrete piling.
On this side of the river, there is
ruln-way sufficient to get a four per cent
grade (or probably less, which of
course would be better) but on the city
side the space recently occupied by the
nuisance boat would have to be appro
priatedl, in order that these gangways
could be run parallel with the bank
both up-stream and down-streant a suf
'rient distance to clear the top of the
proposed new levee-grade, on the slope
The olperating of one boat of the type
suggested would do, for some years to
come, while the lessee should provide
himself with two boats, however, the

I believe. as I stated at said meeting.
that such an installation as this might
cost somewhere around $150,000, but
whether this Is correct or not, I am
firmly convinced that on the eve of the
big development to be inaugurated by
the opening of the Panama Canal, in
view of present health-conditions at
this port, it would be suicidal for the
people of Algiers to sell a new fran
chise at this point which would not af
ford the facilities above enumerated,
at least. I suggested, and I believe it
is a practical proposition, to sell this
franchise to the bidder who would
agree to put in a firstclass service, in
consideration of the revenges for the
least number of years. If this can be
done on the basis of $100,000 or lees,
well and good, but whatever be the
amount, let it be in betterments, which
the people of this side can have the
benefit of, and not in cash which may
be swallowed up by the city treasury
for the thousand and one needs of the
big city across the way.
If the trolley company secures the
front street franchise, it could surely
afford to bid this ferry franchise in,
over all comers, when it would be in
a position, through such a first-class
service, to develop a-splendid btisiness
at said point, which a less efficient ser
vice than the one herein outlined
would certalnly faill to accomplish,
Five years ago, I wrote a similar ar
tidele on this subject, when I empha
sised the absolute sneeouty of secur
tig more room on the city side, for the
approuhes to this ferry, whenever a
ehang was made. I repeat this now,

due on ticket money, are in and the
sum of $197.50 has been turned in by
the efpaicient and energetic ng of the orker and
organizer, Mrs. J. E. Huckins. This
sum is very much appreciated by the
officers of the parish as being of great
help to them in meeting the current
obligations of the parish, and also to

It was a surprise and pleasure to
have *lth us last Tuesday that veteran
priest of the Church, the Rev. A. Gor
don Bakewell, for many years the reglad t
kor of this parish. Old frlemingds were
glad to see this venerable patriach,
who despite his ninety years is still
going about the Father's business. t
They noted with regret that he had t
receptly met with an accident while of
traveling in a street car when he stum
bled and fell, bruising his face quite r
a good deal.
Her many friends will be glad to
know that Mrs. W. B. Fleming, who
was smitten with a slight stroke of
paralysis last Sunday evening at her
home, is quite a good deal improved.
The entertainment for the benefit of

at the Alcazar Airdome, proved to be d
a great success, especially the drama ,
