This new branch of Uncle Sam's
service is a great institution and in
many cases will result in a saving
to the American public, but it is
yet in its infancy, so we wish to re
mind our friends in the country
that there are many articles that it
will not be practical to send through 8
the malls, others that are not per
missible, while there are still oth
ers that the cost of packing, so as
to comply with the requirements of
the Postoffice Department, would t
more than equalize the saving in t
carrying charges.
In many cases it will not only be
cheaper but much safer to send it
by express.
It will ever be the aim of
to give their patrons the benefit of
the knowledge gained through a
very close study of this new mode
of transportation.

The Algiers people are extremely in- T
terested in the outcome of the meeting
w;hich is shortly to be held with Mayor
Hehrman and the members of the Al- Ilc
giers Improvement Association, regard- Al
ing the violations of the franchise of at
the Ferri- Company. While President hl
Lennox of the Association, has not up .It
to the present time arranged a date for su
this meeting, it is looked forward to m
with a great deal of interest. There
will be present at this meeting a large a%
number of representative business men l
and citizens of our district. n
We read in one of the daily papers it
where City Engineer Hardee is quoted lit
as saying that the Southern Improve- of
ment and Ferry Company have lived la
up to the requirements of their fran- ar
chise. We are unwilling to believe that Sg
Capt. Hardee made such a statement, la
for it would only take a short time for or
the different members of the Associa- at
tion to point out to Capt. Hardee some
very c(onspicuous violations, and no ca
doubt Capt. Hardee will remember his fr
mleeting with the members of the As
sociation in Algiers a few months ago. ll
when some forty or fifty of our business be
men met our City Engineer and point- to
ed out to him at the time what im. it
. provements "were asked for and Capt. at
Ilardee knows well, up to the present t1
d time, these improvements have not pi
n been made. We can look. of course., t
it for excuses from the Ferry Company. gl
s very much in line with the farmer's la
1. 'arn that needed a roof. When it 1s
1, rained they could not do the work and ac
s in dry weather they did not require 1s
'. a roof, so it will only be a short time to
s. now when the Ferry Company will tr
d again give to Capt. Hardee the excuse
e that "the river is rising."
d We are also unwilling to believe that tr
d Capt. Hardee has approved of the "re- sr
a arrangement" (?) of the terry house fo
d interiors on either side of the river. to
5 We thought that Capt. Hardee agreed ti
Swith us to simplify the handling of pas
C sengers so that the crowds might be et
a taken on and discharged from the ferry
* with dispatch, but the arrangements in
now (what might be termed by the la
ferry company an improvement) are r4
0 far from such and in fact the condi- l
tions are worse than they were before si
ie they built the coverings for the pon- in
s toons and erected a few feet of wooden
picket fences.

What Algiers wants is as follows:
t That the people boarding the ferry Ir
shall not encounter or be inconveni
enced by the people disembarking. al
is That the f'rry houses be so arranged d
that they will be able to take care of si
,d a large crowd with dispatch and in
0o keeping with the importance of this fc
al avenue where thousands of people cross
daily from one side of the river to the
It can readily be seen why the Ferry
Company has not made the changes
c- asked for. Instead of placing the tick
'n et seller on the right-hand side of the
it ferry house going toward the boat on o
td Ithe Algiers side of the river, the ticket
a, seller is placed on the left so that she
r- may also, besides selling tickets, check m
an the wagons as they come off and go on it
re the boats. This arrangement necessi- of
is tates passengers recrossing one an- 3
is other in going to and from the ferry. cl
True. the Ferry Company has left gates ,
e- lin between these different partitions, tl
I1 and these gates are always open so as
a. to give the passengers an opportunity, a
a, If they so desire, to interfere with ra
7, pid transportation. We only ask those ,
th in authority to visit the Algiers ferry ,
P- bouse about the time the passengers o
- from the Grand Isle train are going to ,
h- the city or any time in the evening or
at In the morning when there is a rush of
m patrons going to and coming from their h
is work. This will be tolerated only be- a
of cause Capt. Hardee has not availed
al himself of the opportunity of seeing
ie these inconveniences which subject,
l- the patrons of the ferry to hardships ,
- dally.
Ic The double door flappers on the Al- e
y. giers side of the river are a terrible
0 nuisanee, and when we say terrible we
in mean what we say, for on several oc
casions young children have been g
knocked out of the arms of mothers by
Sthese doors. It was only after differ- c
ent articles in The Herald that the b
company condescended to cut out part a
ma- of the blind panels of these doom and g
sa substitute glarss. c
he The patrons of the Ferry Company
ro come from our district. Ninety per o
to cent of the nickels are paid by Alglers
ad people. Are we not, therefore, entitled d
md to consilderation at the hands of a
b.lheartless corporation, whose only in
at terest is the payment of a stated divi- d
at dend to its stockholders?
he The Herald, as well as the citizenw
of our district, are perfectly satisfaed
that Mayor Behrman will see to it that
Justice is done. We believe that the
PEouthern Improvement and Ferry Com-.
pany is entitled to everything that its a
franchie calls for. It is not the pur- *
pose of the Algiers Improvement As
sociation, or of our citizens to try to
eompel the Ferry Company to do more a
than they have bargained for, but wet
will insist that we are given such ser- e
vice as the franchise calls for, and for l
which our people are paying out their g
money. I

To the Property Owners and Residents ";
of Pelican Ave.: ti
The Parking Commission of New Or
leans will soon begin planting trees in
Algiers, live oaks on Opelousas avenue
and elms on Teche street. Both streets
have unusually wide banquettes and
c'an accommodate trees of large size,
such as have been selected by the Com
mission. st
Elms had been selected for Pelican Pt
avenue, but a committee waited upon ln
"Jr. J. C. Mathews. member of the conm- a
mission from Algiers, and after con- id
sulting with him it was decided to use 1'
ligustrunms on Pelican avenue instead le
of elms. This tree does not grow so
large; is an evergreen and the roots vi
are not destructive to the brick or
Schiltinger banquettes like the roots of
larger trees. It is a beautiful tree and
ornamental the year round; is hardy r
and not easily killed by cold. G
Anyone not familiar with this tree p
can find several on Bermuda street. in
front of Mr. Mathews' home. t
The Commission is unable to begin it
planting on Pelican avenue this year
because their growing ligustrums are
too small, but we have every assurance
that in 1914 the beautifying of this, a
street will be begun. It is the idea of
this Commission to plant trees as ra
pidly as possible in all parts of the
city and our district will not be ne
glected. Any street planted irregu
larly with different varieties of trees
Is unsightly and an eye-sore to any one
admiring beauty and symmetry, and it ai
is this defect the Commission wishes E
to overcome in addition to planting it
trees where none exist at present.
The city librarian assured me last
year of his i:tention to plant ligus- fc
trums in front of our library this
spring and he will not be permitted to b,
forget his promise. Anyone wishing h,
;o plant trees this year, and now is the tl
time, is urged to put out this particular
variety in view of the facts above stat- d
No concerted effort has ever been h
made by the residents of any particu- ti
lar street to beautify that street and e
row that the matter has been taken a
tiup by the citP. we ought to lend our as- It
sistance, not only In the planting but F
in the protection of trees after plant- n
ing has been accomplished. Young trees
seem to stand a poor showing on our li
streets unless well protected by strong ;
boxes and well guarded by those most b
interested. a
Elsewhere in this issue of the Her- e
ald will be found extracts from the or- ii
dinance, creating the Parking Commis- c
sion in regard to the destruction or u
mutilation, of trees and it may be well
for everyone interested in this question
to read them.

N. New York, Jan. 31.- Officers of the
steamer Pinar Del Rio, from ('uban
n ports, which arrived in the harbor to
,night, report that they saw a steamer
- ashore on Cay Sal Island, in the Flor
. ida Straits, while passing there Jan.
e, 17. The identity of the vessel was not
d learned.
No recent news of a wreck in this
ts vicinity had reached marine men here.
It was though possible, however.

Galveston, and has not since been re
The El Dorado and her crew of thir
ty-nine men has been given up as lost,
in the belief that she foundered in the
gales of early January: but it is possi
ble tlhat she became disabled in the
storm and was driven out of her course
is and onto the little island.
The continued absence of word from
the steamship El Dorado, part of the
a- Southern Pacific freight fleet, has de
stroyed all hope of hearing again from
any of those on board. Among those
who went down with the ship, if she
has been lost, was Christopher Her
e bert, Jr.. of No. 714 Pelican avenue,
and a crew of thirty-nine men. Capt.
s E. Wood of New York city, well known
g in New Orleans, was in command.
The ship was loaded with 2,000
gross tons steel rail. and was bound
8 for Galveston. The United States rev
s enue cutters Windom and Winona have
to been ordered to search the gulf in the
Ig hope that some signs of wreckage or
le the ship itself may be found.
ir El Dorado was on last Friday niae
Lt- days overdue at Galveston. The ab-,
sence of wireless apparatus on board
n has made it impossible to keep in
u- touch with her. Radiograms, how
Id ever, have been transmitted to other
'n ships plying in the trade to keep a
u- lookout for her off the east coast of
ut Florida, or for men of the crew who
it- might be afloat.
es El Dorado was built by the Cramps
ur in 1884. She had a gross tonnage of
is 3.500, was 331 feet long, with a 42-foot
at beam and 31 feet deep. She had a
speed of twelve knots. She was used
tr- exclusively in the freight service. Her
ir- last trip to New Orleans was in De
Is- cember. She cleared from here for
or New York with a cargo of sugar.
Acting Secretary Winthrop of the
Navy Department to-day notified Rep
resentatives Estopinal and Dupre that
the gunboat Nashville will be the only
re representative of the navy at New Or
leans during Carnival, the hopes raised
by Rear Admiral Andrews while he
•vas acting Secretary not having been
realized under the administration of
the real Secretary or his assistant.
While the Nashville is a compara
tively small representative of the ma
jesty and power of the navy. she is an
interesting craft. She made the first
ot capture during the Spanish-American
e war, her seizure being that of the
lumber schooner Buena Ventura. The
n fact that the prize court turned the
schooner back to her owners on the
or ground that she was not a lawful prize
ty does not detract from the fact that the
little old Nashville was on the job,
ready to grab Spanish shipping.
The generosity of the department in
sending a whole squadron of battle
ships to New Orleans late in Novem
pt er rather exhausted the time during
which the ships may go a-holidaying.
on Under the next administration per
apsd it will be possible to change the
time of the winter maneuvers so as to
allow the big ships of the fleet to be
at New Orleans during Carnival.
og The Herald is in receipt of a news
all paper which is over 113 years of age.
p- It is a four-page paper, each page hav
