"HOW ALGIERS WILL GET WHAT h
IT NEEDS." e
"The Progressive Union on Wednes- c
day entertained the officers and direc- 1
tors of the Algiers Improvement Asso- e
ciation at a luncheon. The problem v
of the local navy yard was discussed ,
at this time.
We would like to see a luncheon
given by the Progressive Union to ev- y
ery improvement association in every r
ward in the city. Instead of the offi- p
cers and directors of this commercial c
body talking to these associations, we Il
would like to see the officers and di- o
rectors of the various associations talk b
to the officers and members of the p
Progressive Union. In this fashion lo- I
cal pride would be stimulated, local ti
interests would be better looked after,
for we would have the Progressive a
Union acting from real local knowl- t,
The world goes on the theory that a b
man does not want anything very ft
much if he is not willing to make his c
wants known so insistently that they s
will be understood. It also goes on o
the theory that it is not possible to P
help people who are not willing to help If
Algiers, of course, is a ward of the e
city. With the passing of the old ward
bossism of councilmanic representa- 0
tion, Algiers becomes even a closer d
part of the city. It will be well rep
resented in the new commission coun- 14
cil, because Mayor Behrman, who c'
comes from Algiers, has kept the in
terests of that section well in mind,
and has pushed its interests to the i
fullest extent of his ability. He has
been loyal and serviceable to the peo- 0
ple whose personal political friend
ship gave him his start along the road- g
way of political success. is
The slow progress of the immigra- tl
tion station work and the failure of U
the navy yard to open for work are a
factors that have considerably held 01
back the progress of Algiers. I
To our way of thinking two things di
are vitally necessary to the future
prosperity of Algters. One is the aa
drainage of the swamps back of the a
town. New Orleans is bad enough in o0
this regard and Algiers is worse. We B
are pleased to know that there is a
movement afeot for the reclamation *1
of the wet lands back in this section of m
our city, and that this work bids fair w
to be completed in a reasonably short th
time. When this is done, Algiers will w
be one of the best residence sections tt
of New Orleans for people of moderate di
means. It is far better paved to-day p.
than are most sections of our city. It to
has all needed public utilities with the
exception of telegraph offices and it is
our belief that with the present and
continued efforts of our contemporary,
The Algiers Herald, this section will
eventually obtain what it needs in the
way of telegraph facilities. It is ab
surb that it should not have these fa
In the larger matter of the navy
yard we will find important changes
result from the incoming of the next
political administration. The Demo
crats and Progressives will undoubted
ly control both houses of congress by
overwhelming majority. Members of
both parties are committed to an im
partial and intelligent policy as re
lates to the development of our sec
tion of the country.
We in New Orleans must co-operate
with our friends in Algiers in the mat
ter of interesting the Mississippi val
ley in the passage of the Newlands
bill. That bill will provide for trans
ferring the equipment of the Panama
canal to needed work on the Missis
sippi river. It provides for the storing
of flood waters in the upper Mississip
pi valley, for the federal control of our
levees in the lower Mississippi and for
such control of the river as will for
ever prevent disastrous floods. -
We in New Orleans must work with
our United States senators, with our
delegations In congress, and must
work through our governor and our
legislature. We must reach out and
command the support of our neighbor
ing state of Mississippi. We must get
Mississippi to join with us in interest
ing the states higher up the river, and
we must get these states to work on
Of course, it is a far cry from Pro
gressive Union luncheons at which
speeches are made by the members of
the Algiers Improvement Association
to a congress of the United States, in
a matter that involves the expenditure
of five hundred millions of dollars
more money than is being spent to
dig the Panama canal.
It is a far cry also from starting life
as an orphan boy, without friends or
assistance, to become three times may
or of the largest city in the South.
But Algiers turned this little trick.
The people of Algiers can take in
spiration from this fact; they are
mighty good politicians and if they
will use their best endeavors to enlist
the aid of all the influences that can
work for them and co-operate with
them, their side of the river will one
day become greater, richer and more
prosperous than is all of New Orleans
