ADDRESS OF JOS. W. LENNOX
President Algiers Improvchnent Associ
ation, Delivered Yesterday Noon at
the Progressive Union Luncheon.
Mr. President and Members of the
New Orleans Progressive Union:
(;entlemen-ln behalf of the Algiers
Improvement Association I wish to
take advantage of this opportunity to
acknowledge our appreciation and
thanks for the kindly and generous in
terest you have taken in setting aside
this day for the "boosting of Algiers,"
and the pleasure of being your guest.
I will ask you to bear with me in
stating briefly the objects of our or
ganization, and to mention some of
our accomplishments during the two
years of our existence.
It is our earnest intention to take up
all matters pertaining to the welfare
of our community, and co-operate with
other civic bodies in our humble ca
pacity for the betterment of the en
In regard to matters which we have
accomplished, with the able assistance
of the Progressive Union and other
commercial bodies. I will endeavor to
name some of the most important.
The New Orleans. Naval Dock.
When notice was given about the
abandoning of the Naval Dock, we
most sincerely asserted our objection
to this move by having a committee
appointed to draw up resolutions con
demning the recommendations of the
Secretary of the Navy on same. Mr.
Peter S. Lawton, of our association,
with those of other organizations, ap
peared before the Naval Affairs Com
mittee at Washington and most stren
uously presented reasons why the dock
should not be moved, and while before
this committee advantage was taken
of the opportunity of presenting a
strong appeal for a scheme of naval
defense of the mouth of the Misslssippi
river, with the final result of a favor
able recommendation of same by said
Elimination of the Fire Limits.
The fire limits as laid down by the
Building Code in its application to Al
giers was such a handicap on a large
number of residents and property own
ers and quite unsuitable to the cir
cumstances; it Included a large ares
now occupied by frame residences and
other buildings not in any way calling
for, or warranting costly, fireproof
4-'h most objectionable
feature of the code was the effect it
would have in case of a fire which
would destroy a building or even dam
age it to the extent of 60 per cent of
This effect would practically prevent
the repair or rebuilding of almost all
such buildings, for in a very large ma
jority of cases the cost of a new, fire
proof building would oe entirely too
high to permit of a reasonable reve
nue being derived from the investment,
thereby condemning to vacancy, in
case of fire, any of the ground which
is now occupied by many cottages.
This matter was demonstrated by
out association to the Board of Ap
peals, who were impressed with the
injustice that it imposed and they
unmianimously voted to recommend to
the City Council its entire elimination.
The Floded S lon in Rear of Naval
This was a most pitiable calamity
that befell our people, most of whom
were small wage earners and dairy
men who owned a modest little home,
many of them were driven from their
homes by the.treacherous back water
from the late Hymella crefasse, also
forcing them out of employment. The
Algiers Improvement Association took
in the situation at once and with the
coopepatlon of the Progressive Union
secured homsing for those unfortunate
people and rations were issued to
thse,who were destitute, also boats
were provided as a means of transpor
tation for those who could remain in
their bouses, and pasturage was pro
vided the dairymen'for their cattle i"
the naval station grounds.
Exteneen of the Electric Railway te
Patterson Street and Immigratlen
The extension of the Electric 8tree
Railway along Patterson street to Pa
clSc avenue apd from Merril street to
the Immigrant Station, the opening of
which was celebrated on the 12th inst.
and proved itself to be a great conve
nlenoe to the people of Algiers be

Rearragement of the Canal Street

These improvements which were so
vigorosly fought for by our associa
tion and that mean so much to our dis
trict, such as the lowerlag the grades
of the vehicle nclines, the rearrane
meat of the lateror of the ferry hom.s
sad the coverlag of the pontooms. We
are reliably aflermed that plans are
being proparod for these improvements
and work o them is soon to be startt

having this canal pass through the par
ish of Orleans by way of the Outfall
canal in the rear of Algiers. having its
outlet to the Mississippi river below
the naval station, almost opposite the
outlet to the river from the northern
end of said canal.
Nuisance Boat at Barracks Street.
Through the increasing efforts of our
miembers this unsightly boat, with its
stifling odors that was moored at the
foot of Barracks street, in view of the
transient passengers crossing on the
Southern Pacific transfer and those
who c(rossed on the Third District fer
ry., has been removed from said loca
Telegraph Office in Algiers.
A telegraph office in Algiers is an
indisputable necessity and our associ
ation has been hard at work on this
matter for several months, using all
amicable means, with only promises of
an offle to show for our efforts.
Our grievances are such that we
thought it would be only a question of
asking for. Por instance, if you de
sired to send a telegram from Algiers
you are compelled to cross the river
and then go to the office of the com
pany, the nearest of which is at the
corner of St. tnarles and Gravier Sts.
On tne other hand, should a telegram
be sent to a person living in Algiers,
which of course, would have to come
through the above named office, they
would then mail said message to the
address obtained and at least twelve
hours would be consumed before you
would have the pleasure of reading its
Third District Ferry Franchise.
The specifications for this franchise
have been carefully prepared by our
ferry committee and copies of which
lave been sent prospective bidders,
and to the city engineer requesting
them to suggest any changes in their
judgment that should be made. The
idea is to have the specifications as
free as possible from objectionable
features in order to be certain to have
AN OYSTER STEAM.
Alhambra Gymnastic Club Holds Big
Meeting-New Members Elected on
Board-Preparing for Big Building.
On last Monday night, at their club
rooms, 535 Seguin street, the Board
of Directors of the Algiers Gymnastic
Club held a very interesting meeting,
at which time some new members were
elected to fill vacancies caused by
death and resignation. Mr. Stanley
Behrman was elected a member of the
board to succeed Robley S. Stearnes,
resigned, and Mr. E. J. Mothe was also
elected a member of the board to suce
ceed Dr. M. J. Manent, deceased. The
following were also elected members
of the Board of Directors: Messrs.
Reme Charles, Chas. Rupp, George
Peterson, R. Emmett J. Quinn and
Percy Laumann. It was decided by
the Board that a general meeting of
all the stockholders would be held
within the next ten days, at which time
the semi-annual report of the secre
tary and treasurer will be read, and
also the planning of the club and other
information of lntrest to the mem
bers will be brought beforethem. At
this meeting there will be refresh
ments in the shape of an oyster steam.
The members will be notified through
mail, or otherwise, where and when
the oyster steam will be held. The
house committee held a meeting on
Tuesday night and also transacted
some business. Chairman J. E. Huck
ins of the real estate committee, will
call his committee together shortly to
look after some options and other lo
cations that have been offered for the
new club house, which will be erected
by the club. The secretary is now re
ceiving a good deal of mail, containing
descriptions of many different swim.
miag pools, one of which jwill be the
main feature of the new club house.
The members are all looking forward
to the new buildaing, and especially
the added features which are to eorm
the most important amusements of the
organization, namely, the swimming
pool, a large auditorium, bowling al
ley, and commodious gymnasium.
QUICK SERVICE TO THE FRENCH
Now that the new electric car lines
have their schedule so arranged, put
ting the Third District fbrry in easy
access for the people in Algiers, Mc
)onoghrville and Gretma, there has
been already a marked improvement
in the trame over this ferry. Hereto
tore patrons of the French Market
were compelled to walk quite a dis
tane ain order to reach the French
Market, or to take the Canal Street
ferry instead and pay an extra nickel
to get to the FPrech Market, which
made the time very log. At the pres
ent time, either the Pacific, Naval 8ta
tion, or Immliration Station line will
transfer you direct to the Third DiMa
tric terry, which puts you within two
squares ot the famous French Mar
