For years the present Naval Station was known as the New Orleans
Naval Reser' ation. It finally became a reality and has again passed out of
existence as far as a Station is concerned. The new rumor is. that under the
present Democratic regime we may, look forward to some patronage from
our party, even though they will place .ugar on the free list. Let it be hoped
that this rumor of reonwning the Naval Station will become a fact.
Our Immigration Station is now opened and ready to take care of the first
ship load of human freight. For .e ars did. we listen to rumors about our Im
micration Station and now it is in existence. Let us also hope that our pres
ent Democratic administration will take care of this for the party in the
Ever since our ships went away there have been repeated rumors that
"the ships ar"' coming back." We l.ve heard this for over ten years and as
yet no mnt.t is s,n on the horizon, but there are some good indications, which
are, that there are more ships of the Southern Pacific Company loading here
now than there have been during the past years. We are also told by good
authority that we may soon expet a resumption of the shipping that was lost
to us years ago.
Another rumor that is not yet substantiated is that the big W. G. Coyle
tract, whit l was exploited by Peter S. Lawton, will again change hands and
that some big enterprise will locate in our district. Let us hope also that this
will come to pass.
The fact that the Johnson Iron Works will remove their enormous shops
to our district is now assured. Surveys are being made tentative to the erec
tion of the big steel structure.
The Grand Isle Railway has brought new capital into this territory. It
asxtended and maintained the Algiers Electric Railway, all of which has
brought money and work to our district.
The merchants, during the past year, have had little to complain of and
it is the universal opinion that the "hard times" have long passed and our
district may again be smiled upon by generous Prosperity. Most of the Al
glers people are willing to help an enterprise. There are a few who will help
provided it does not injure their pocketbook, and there are also others who are
willing to throw down a big industry for our district merely because they can
not obtain an exhorbitant price for a piece of property. The sooner we rid"
ourselves of this kind of pest the sooner will our district flourish. What we
need now is a "pull together," and it will be but a short time when we will
attract attention sufficient to cause the investor to prick his ears at our ad
Manual Training.
An effort is now being made to have a manual training school established
in Algiers. This is a worthy movement and should have the hearty co-opera
tion of the citizens of this town. Isaac Delgado, realizing that industrial
training was of the first importance to the youth of our city, left most of his
fortune for the establishment of a manual training school. His ideas in this
respect were founded upon observation. While the ordinary courses of study
which are offered in our public schools equip our children to a certain extent
to meet the problems that are to come, nothing can be of more value to them
than practical education-that is, to have the rudiments of some trade incul
cated into them in their youth. Thus equipped, they are ready to meet and
conquer the problem of living.
Algiers, being divided from the main city by the river, is in a somewhat
isolated condition. Some special provision should be made to provide this
district with a malual training school. There are thousands of children here
who would be benefited and made useful citizens. No investment that the
city could make could bring greater returns, for the future of any great city
lies in its coming citizenship. The citizens of our district should
leave no stone unturned to have a manual training school located In Algiers.
Nothing they have done or could do, would redound more to their benefit.
The Tariff Question.
Previous to the last presidential election, both the Democratic and Re
publican parties made certain declarations in respect to the tariff. The Demo
cratic party won at the polls on one plank alone in the platform-tariff re'
vision downward. The people of this country had become convinced that
high tariff meant high cost of living, and thus believing had voted in the party
that promised immediate revision. President Wilson is trying hard to make
the pledges of the party good. The extra session of Congress has been con
vened, and the President has spoken his word. His tariff bill has been framed,
and it is now up to the Congress. As usual, sectional feeling will enter much
into the discussion of the tariff question; but the bill, in its present shape,
leaves no room for sectional jealousy, as for one time at least, sections of the
country have been eliminated in framing the bill. It is a tariff measure to the
benefit of the whole people, and not for a particular class.
Down here in Louisiana, we are particularly Interested in sugar. Accord.
ing to the present bill, sugar will be on the free list in th'ee years. Our local
press is making a loud howl against free sugar, as likewise our Democratic (?)
congressmen and senators, who were elected on a "downward revision of tariff"
platform. All of them are telling us that the sugar industry in thisestate will
be ruined.
Years ago these sugar planters received a bounty from ths government
for raising sugar. Then somebody discovered that the bounty was an imposi
tion, and had it repealed. The same cry that the sugar industry could not live
was raised then when the bounty was taken away, yet the sugar industry in
this state is on a firmer and better paying basis than it has ever been. One
of our evening contemporaries says that nobody has grown rich in the Lonu:
islana sugar industry. This is not so; most of the men who control our sugar
industry are very wealthy men, and their wealth has been made out of sugar.
One other little comment: FPor months and months we have been sending
out literature on the fertility of our soil, and how many different crops can
be raised on our land in one year. We have been inviting the Northern and
Western farmers to sell out and come here where richs await them. Any:
where from $500 to $1,500 an acre can be cleared according to these announce
meats. Then why worry about sugar? What sugar planter clears anything
like $500 an acre? It would be far better for the sugar planter to subdlvide
his great plantation into small farms and reap the greater profit. His fruit,
grain and truck crops would be more certain than sugar, and would bring
greater returns.
All the holler about sugar is bosh. When sugar has been finally placed
on the free list, our planters will still be in business, and will be making
money. The tariff bill now before Congress is for the benefit of the people,
and any senator or congressman that opposes it in part or in whole lll have
to answer to the people who gave him his job. Sectional feeding must be put
aside, and the interests of the people given first consideration.

Manual training is a sort of holding
power in the schools. It gives boys a
chance to use their hands while the
brain is being trained in the element
ary studies.
If boys are to make a mark in the
world to-day, they need to be better
equipped than their forefathers. Ev

The frst Union lag was raised by
General Washington, at Cambridge,
Massachusetts. It consisted of thir
teen stripes, but Instead of the stars
were the union crosses of St. George
of Enland and St. Andrew of Scot.
In 1777 General George Washington
and Robert Morris were appointed to
design a flag for the nation. They en
gaged Mrs. Elizabeth Ross to make
the flag from a drawing made by
Washington. This flag was adopted
June 14, 1777, by Congress. It was
"That the flag of the United States
be thirteen stripes, alternate red and
white, with the union of thirteen white
stars on a blue field."
In 1818 it was resolved:
"That 0a star should he added when
ever a new state was admitted, while
the stripes remain the same."
Red represents courage, white pur
ity, and blue justice.
Wherever the American flag is seen,
it brings better days. If one is dis.
couraged it brings new hope, for it is
the pledge of justice, civilization and
Christianity. The tyrannical only
have reason to hate it. "Old Glory" is
a very sacred thing to the American
citizen, for under it he enjoys the lib
erty for which our flag stands.
(Strueby I)rumm, 7th B Grade.)
The flag of any nation is its emblem
and so the flag of the United States
stands for freedom, love, order and
Christianity. It is well for everyone
to know the history of the American
The first Union flag was raised over
the patriotic camp at Cambridge, by
Washington, during the Revolution, in
Congress appointed a committee,
consisting of Gen. George Washington
and Robert Morris to select a design
for a flag. They went to Mrs. Betsy
Ross and she made it from a plan
drawn by Washington.
It was adopted by Congress June 14,
The flag of to-day was adopted by
Congress on April 4, 1818, and retained
the thirteen original stripes, but to the
blue field was to be added a new star
for every state admitted into the

Belleville School.
('Emma Gayaut, 7th Grade B.)
From time immemorial nations have
used flags as symbols of independence,
power and union.
In 1777 the Congress of the confed
erated states assembled and ordained
the glorious flag which we now hold
and defend and advance before God
and all men as the flag of liberty.
"Its stripes of alternate red and
white proclaim the original union of
thirteen states to maintain the Decla
ration of Independence. Its stars,
white in a field of blue, proclaim that
union of states constituting our na
tional constellation, which receives a
new star with every new state. The
two together signify union, past and
present. The very colors have a lan
guage: white is for purity; red for
valor; blue for justice; and all to
gether bunting, stripes, stars and col
ors make the flag of our country to be
cherished by all ou hearts and to be
upheld by all our hands."
The adventurous sailors of the Unit
ed States have displayed the flag in
every part of the world where com
merce called them, from the Arctic to
the Indies. Our navy has made it res
pected in peace and in war. It is res
pected everywhere and everywhere it
stands for American freedom, energy
and vigor.
(Elsie Borne, 8th B Grade.)
When one sees a flag afloat, he at
once sees a nation, as every nation
has a flag, which has a meaning.
Our flag is red, white and blue. It is
a symbol of our nation. The present
flag was adopted in 1818, and is con
sidered the most beautiful flag in the
world. It shows by its colors the
bravery, purity and loyalty of the men
who fought to save it
The uses of the American flag are
many. It is used as general symbol of
rejoicing, sympathy and mourning,
and is a fair emblem of our liberty.
How many heroes its folds have
covered! How many have lived for it!
How many who have died for it!
Wherever the American fat floats,
it has been the sign of a better day.
Under it lives order, justice, civiliza
tion and Christianity.

Our flag's uses are manifold. It
serves in a variety of ways as signals.
It conveys definite information of vari
ous kinds, and is used as general sym
bols of rejoicing, congratulations, sym
pathy and mourning.
Tyrants only have hated it, and the
enemies of mankind alone have tram
pled it to the earth. All who sigh for
the trinmphs of truth, righteousness
and love have saluted it,
Mrs. Beter Ross made the rst lag,
whichl a dgm by eorg Wah
ington. The flag of our time was
adopted by Congress April 4, S18S. The
stripes were to be red and white. Red
signifies divine love, and is the lan
guage of valor, and the emnblem of
war. White is the symbol of hope.
Illue signifies justic., sincerity and
truth. The stars typify the endless
duration of the nation.
E\ery American's heart swells with
pridel at the sight of a piecte of bunting
representing this great nation. It is to
him a sacred thing, for, under it, many
millions enjoy the protection anti lib
erty which thousands of brave men
died to give.
Some of the Se'enth Grade pupils of
hMc-Donogh No. 4 School had a most en
joyable outing at Cit.. Park last Satur
day. It was an ideal day for a picnic.
Baseball was the main pleasure in
which the boys indulged, but none of
the other sports were in any way ne
glected. The party started for home
in the late dusk of the evening, all de
claring that they had thoroughly en
joyed themselves and were ready for
another such event, in the near future.

forty-two new pupils have been en
rolled since Jan. 23. A committee con
sisting of Dr. T. P. Bell, S. Daniels,
Jos. Lennox, J. M. Henry and R. M.
Brown met at the church April 5 and
selected chairs and decided upon
changes to be made in the Sunday

The attendance at prayer meeting is
increasing, there being more than fifty
present last Thursday night.
Sunday morning in the absence of

an instructive sermon on the text:
"How shall we escape if we neglect so
great a salvation?"

The N. O. Dispensary for Women
and Children is doing a noble work in
our community. It is crowded at all
times, so much so that there is never
a time that a patient leaves a bed
that there is not another woman or
girl waiting for her place. Situated
in the congested river front section,
where thousands of poor persons re
side, the Dispensary is daily besieged
by scores of women and children in
immediate need of surgical and medi
cal attention. While the Dispensary
receives an appropriation of $5,000)
from the state and city per year, it re
quires $10,000 annually to run the in
stitution, and the women of the board,
thirty in number, have to raise suffi
cient funds each year to cover the de
ficit and continue its good work.
