THE GREAT OUTPOURING OF
PEOPLE AND MARKED
Was the Reception Given to Mayor
Martin Behrman, Monday Night,
at the Elmira Pleasure Grounds,
When His Candidacy Was En
dorsed For the Third Term As
Mayor of the City of New Orleans.
Never in the history of political
times during the past twenty years, do
says one of the old-timers, has there of
been such a demonstration by such a mi
vast crowd as gathered to show their po
appreciation of the past services of as
our present Mayor, and their endorse- ad
ment of his policies which have been wi
so.successful during the tenure of his it
office, and which has brought to our ag
district many positions and improve
ments that we would not have had th
were it not for Mr. Behrman. wl
Long before the time of the meet- pa
ing the Elmira Pleasure Grounds was va
crowded to suffocation. So great was
the crowd that in the rear of 'the big
grounds the bands of music could
scarcely be heard, and, indeed, it was
an old-time jollification with every
body of the same opinion-that Mayor ed
Behrman was to be returned for the sh
third term as Mayor of our great city. th
Before the meeting was called to ha
order, City Electrician Foster Olroyd,
who had charge of the moving pictures er
and lantern slides, showed to the hun- to
dreds present the actual permanent $1
improvements that have taken place
during the past eight years under the ha
present Ring administration. ad
These pictures went further to con- es
vince people than the ordinary speech
es, most of which have a stereotyped er
form, but here they were shown actual tr
improvements and if there were many g9
there from Missouri, they had no
grounds for complaint, as all of the Be
claims of the speakers during the past Oc
several mouths wese thrown upon a
canvas, which recIsd atnal truth. or
The meeting was called to order by N
E. W. Burgis, of the Grand Isle Rail- m
road. Mr. Burgi made an elegant ro
address and it was very much regret
ted by the hundreds in the rear of the ed
big grounds that he could not be heard w
more distinctly, but many availed 20
themselves of the opportunity of read
lin his speech in the Picayune of Tues- hi
day morning. Mayor Behrman was in- ad
troduced as the princ'pal speaker of pt
the evening and he was loudly ap
plauded as he came to the front of the ed
platform to present his claims to his th
fellow-citizens why he should be re- th
turned to the position which he has th
so succeafully filled.
When about to make his speech, w
Mayor Dehrman was interrupted tem- it
porarily, by thirteen little girs, all th
clad In white, each earrying a besutl- Iii
ful bouquet, which was presented to
the Mayor, and his honor was visibly in
afected, as he-was seen to wipe the th
tears from his eyes He certainly al
mast have felt proud at this time to te
feel that he was held in such high es- ni
teem by his neighbor. and fellow-ti- e
seas, especially those with whom he
grew up, the greater majority of whom PI
he calls by frst name. at
The tremendous applause which fol- a
lowed this act showed plainaly that the I
. mense crowd joined with the Mayer oi
in feeling this sensome of pride, in that 1

Mayor Behrman's speech, which no
doubt required a considerable length
of time for its preparation, is one that
might have been presented to the op
position months ago for their perusal,
as only such facts were stated in his
address that defied attack, and so able
was his argument that even the Daily
Item could not muster sufficient cour
age to attack it.

the evening were Harold Newman, Ed

MR. MANSON GETS REPLY FROM
Manson's Wild Talk at Algiers League
Rally Shown Based On Either
Ignorance or Mailce.
The speech of Captain Harry Man
son, of the revenue cutter I)avy, at a
league rally in Algiers Monday night.
in which he charges graft in the Dock
Board, besides creating a storm of
protest among attaches along the riser I
front, aroused a broad stir of indigna
tion among the port commissioners.

lowing statement, comprising data
from the official statistics of the I'nit
The refutation deals comprehensive
ly with the charges he levelled, and
reads as follows:
"In the issue of the Times-I)emocrat
yesterday space is given to a speech
made by Captain Harry Manson. at a
meeting held in Algiers. Captain Man
son either made the statements cred
ited to him maliciously or ignorantly.
The entries for 1911 at New Orleans
show a net tonnage of 2,019,067; Pen
sacola, 392,285 net tons. It was there
fore not possible for eighteen ships a
day to enter the port of Pensacola
the entries of tonnage would show the
average to be not more than three a
week. The entries at Mobile show
677,445 net tons, an average of not
more than five a week. At Galveston.
830,072 net tons, an average of about
seven vessels a week. The combined
net tonnage of the ports of Galveston,
Pensacola and Mobile amounts to 1,
900,002. As stated above New Or
leans was 2,019,067, which shows that
the foreign tonnage entering this port
exceeds that of the three combined
ports by 119,065 net tons. These fig
ures are official, being obtained from
"Statistical Abstract of the United
States," Bureau of Statistics, year end
ing June 30, 1911. In the face of them,
does It look like Captain Manson knew
what he was talking about? The
wharfage assessed in the port of New
Orleans is fixed by law and will cbm
pare more than favorably with the
other ports, where terminals are most
ly privately owned, whereas they are
publicly owned in this port. Captain
Manson says: 'While New Orleans has
the port facilities it has not the busi
niess, and there is a reason.' Do the
above figures indicate that his state
ment is correct?
"Our last annual report shows: To
tal gross tonnage for 1902, 3,907,457;
1911, 5,112,912; tonnage using public
wharfs, 1902, 2.370,091; 1911, 4,228,238,
an increase of 1,206,455.
"Revenue, 1902, $215,329.19; 1911,
$391,730.38, or an increase of $181,
"The following comparison of for
eign commerce is taken from the
World's Almanac, 1912, for 1911:
"Imports and exports, New York, $1,
654,145,138; New Orleans, $239,567,
588; Galveston, $224,065,882, and Pen.
"He declares 'graft' exists. He
should be speclfic. It is only fair to
the people of this city for him to show
where the graft exists. No man
should make a charge unless he is in
a position to prove it. , It is not true
that tramp steamers are the only ones
compelled to have spark arresters; all
steamers enterin this port are com
pelled to have them. Phrthermore, all
switching locomotive on the river
front are compelled to have spark ar
resters. The Dock Board does not sell
spark arresters and has no Interuest in
I anybody that does sell them, their only
Interest be~ag to see that they are
used as required by law.

ONE DOLLAR A DAY FOR A WORK
Do You Want That Kind of a Mayor?
CLAIBORNE'S DOLLAR A DAY.
Charging that Charles F. Claiborne.
the League candidate for mayor, was
no friend of labor and had stood for
$1 per day as a day's wage for sixteen
years, John Stadler, the well-known
labor advocate, sprung sensational
charges at the openlng meeting of the
Regulars in Algiers last night and
protld one of the features of that big
gathering. He quoted the record from
the Plcayune of Tuesday, June 16. 1896
"The fnance committee met last
night at 8 o'clock, Chairman Brittla
presiding, and Messrs. Clalborne,
Ricks and Pedersen preset.
"Mr. Claiborne said he had a conver
sation with Commissioner McOary and
was informed by him that he had ap
plications from thousands of men who
said they were willing to work on the
streets at $1 a day. Mr. Clalboeno said
he still believed that a large number
of people could be taken care of at $1
a day and was in favor of making the
money go further and among a greater
number of men.
"Mr. Pedersen said his conclusion
was that a laboring man could not Itve
on $1 a day and did not appove a
curtailing the amount they were re
"Mr. Clalborne argued furtbher, ely
ing that thoush $1 a day would net
provide luxuries, It would be the best
that could be done with a large labor
roll, and many med would be glad to
earn even that much. They should be
given a chance to earsn a dollar; It was
better than earning nothing."
"A man who advotes eattlng dowan
the wages of working men is no Ut
person for mayoro o ar great eity,
which is so largely made up of and is
dependent upon the worklag people,"
declared Mr. Stadler.
"With any and all mistakes he may
have made, I'd a thousaad times rather
have Mayor Behrman and the Regular
Democratle organlsatle an eharge et
our munlcipal government, than Chbs.
P. Clalberne, who stands for dolara
day wages. I charge that he advo
cated and advisled that the worklng
menof this city be eat from $1.50 to
$1 per day, puttian more me to work
at $1 per day. This is his stxteen
years' reeord that stands undisputed."
Mr. 6tadler said he had been told
by reliable authority that Mr. Clal
borne, when approached, expressed a
desire to be mayor and hoped he couald
be, but he feared his one-dollar4-da
labor record, which he admitted, would
