that the bottling department of the Se

-be operated by the American Brewing
Company, and that some additional re
frigerating machinery will be installed
on the premises. We were also in
form~ed that the operating of the bot
tling dejuartment on this side of the
river does not mean that it will be per
manently established, but that the
American Brewing Company will mere
ly use the plant during an emergency
while they are erecting a large bottle
plant in the city, so the operating of
the "biat for the next few months will
not neeuearily mean the re-establish
ment of this Industry, much, however,

A big plan to sec5ure land for a gen- get

States Baracks, the .Marine Hospital, vi,

ure launched at the meeting Monday Hai
afternoon of the committee on naval int
base, called for the purpose of arrang- ati
ing a program for the visit of the board nt
of inspectors of shore stations, and col
Mayor Behrman, who attended the ses- na
sion, stated that at the next meeting is
of the Commission Council *he would tar
have an ordinance introduced to ac- a r
quire all the land on the waterfront ist
between the Naval Station and the Im- is
migration Station, to be used for the mE
It was an interesting meeting, and
Wiliam P. Ross, the chairman, in a bu
brief statement made, showed that he Gt
had gathered a world of valuable and at
convincing data, to be laid before the wl
distinguished visitors who are to come C,
Friday, data setting forth the strong it
claims for a continuance and enlarge. wI
ment of the New Orleans Naval Station. tel
J. A. Davis, the officer in charge of sti
the Naval Station, made a most impor- th
tant statement at the meeting. He said
that all that was needed to make the fe
station at New Orleans one of the most ta
serviceable in the country was an addi- of
tion to the pier space, that is, room in
which to accommodate the vessels form- so
ing the reserve fleets. Mr. Davis was sp
direct and outspoken upon the advan- m,
tages of New Orleans as a fresh water es
harbor, and said that the government
wanted fresh water harbors. of
The board of inspectors of shore sta- 01
tions will be here Friday forenoon. The m
board is composed of Rear Admiral J. At
R. Edwards, chairman; Captain Har
old P. Norton, Naval Constructor W. G.
Dubose and Captain George R. Evans,
recorder. The inspectors will reach the
city in the morning, and under the pro
gram arranged yesterday will be taken at
to the Naval Station at 10 in the fore- al
noon, on the tugboat Samson. They a
will return in automobiles, and at 2 inl
the afternoon Mr. Ross will present to a
them a statement from the naval base ,'j
committee, giving the reasons why the tl
station should be continued and made tl
greater and larger. tl
Mr. Ross wrote the carious coal in- a
terests as to their facilities and re- d
ceived replies which told of the amount b
of coal the several companies could
handle in a day. He wrote to the Sew.
erage and Water Board and will obtain ti
from that body a statement of the wa
ter supply at the station. Mr. Ross's a
inquiry brought forth statements as
to the cost at which provisions and
general supplies could be turnished the
fleet here and as to ranroad facilities
for handling freight; floating derricks
and labor available. The chairman also
showed a letter received from the bar
pilots, giving a list of ships of more
than twenty-seven feet draft that had
used the passes during the years 1910,
1911, 1912 and 1913.
A copy of a letter sent Hon. Josephua t
Daniels by the chairman of the com- a
mlttee was read. In the letter Mr. Elite
urged that New Orleans be made the t
home port for the United States ships e
in Southern waters, that the docking
facilities be improved and that provi
sloan be made for taking care of the
ships of the lighthouse service at the
Syards. Mr. Els told of the revenues
that the station could derive from the
docking of merchant vessels and said
t that this revenue would easily amount
to $25,000 or $30,000 a year.
SMr. Ross asked Mr. Datis' for his
a views in the matter, and Mr. Davis said
.that the board of Inspectors had writ
n ten him, asking him that he prepare
ta brief setting forth the advantages
r and the disadvantages of the New Or
le·n _station, give the reasons why the
r station should be continued or done
I- away with.
"The greatest advantage this station
has," Mr. Davis remarked, " is the
fresh water; its greatest disadvantage
is the lack of accommodations for lay
ing up ships. If this disadvantage
could be overcome the advantages over
other ports would be great.
"Firts of all, we must have fresh wa
y ter for our ships, and that we have
here; and next we must have the space
for laying the ships up. From two
years' experience in this port I think
- that New Orleans' can well take care 1
of handling any problem of supplles :
for the shipe, and, as I said before, if
we had the laying-up space here the'
advantages would be great.
"Were we to link the upper wharf
with the coaling wharf we would have
1,600 feet of space, but, as you know,
Seven the second-class battleships have
a length of 400 feet, and there would
be room at the pier for only four of
r, them. The monitors and other ships
that might be laid u are 300 feet long
and there would be room to take care
of only five of them,"
Mr. Davis's rnemarks pointed out a
course of action which the committee
- at once prepared to pursue. Mr. Law
. te rvolunteered to gather lnfomatio
a ggrdin lead available helow the eta

SPECIAL BOARD) CONFERS \VITHI
SEIRETARY I)ANIEI,S BEFORE
STARTING ON SOU'TERN
It is possible that New Orleans will
get a great navy floating drydoc"k which
the Navy l)epartment is contemplating
having built in the near future. In
view of the expensive experience of the
navy with the drydock at Pearl Harbor,
Hawaii. which recently colapsed, float
ing docks are receiving more consider
ation at the hands of the Navy Depart
ment and the subject has cornm up in
connection with improvements at the
naval station at Guantanamo, Cuba. It
is not expected, however, that Guan
tanamo will receive much attention as
a naval base during the present admin
istrat ion, it being more likely that what
is expended in the navy yard develop
ment will be applied to the stations in
the Southern States.
Therefore if a floating drydock is
built for use in time of emergency at
Guantanamo it will be kept regularly
at he navy yard at Pensacola, Fla.,
whence it could be transferred to the
Cuban station when needed, or possibly
It would be based at New Orleans,
which has the advantages of fresh wa
ter, in which deterioration of the metal
structure would progress more slowly
than in salt water.
The special naval board held a con
ference Monday afternoon with Secre
tary Daniels before starting on its tour
of inspection of Southern navy yards.
This board received instructions
some time ago to make a thorough in
spection of the Algiers yard and recom
mend whatever improvements are nec
Navy officials declared that with the
opening of the Panama Canal the New
Orleans navy yard will become the
most important naval station on the
NEW CORPORAL SMITH.
Corporal Smith, of our local Algiers
station, is certainly "hot stuff." Only
shortly after his appointment he makes
I a little raid that causes a great deal of
P sensation and some of our young men
o are now trying to explain how they
e ,'just happened to come along" about
e the time that Corporal Smith came into
e the saloon. In almost every instance
they had "Just come into the place,"
- and of course were not guilty. No _
doubt Corporal Smith's alertness will
1 be rewarded.
Another ofcer of the force, but who
was not on duty, was at the saloon at
n the time, and no doubt he will have
an explanation in the matter, just the Y
same as the other boys. However, be- N
'hind all this there is a moral: Do not di
d shoot dice. It is against the law. You 01
e lose your money and the police will get M
after you. R
