Munsterman, tpresideat of the er Fifteenth Ward branch of the Orleans be Democratic Association, opened the le- meeting and Introduced Louis Acker ve as chairman of the meeting. Mr. Ack er made a short speech, declaring that ey "in spite of efforts to sidetrack it, the an real issue in this campaign is the record of Martin Behrman during his ch sixteen years as mayor." 1 CRAVEN IS POPULAR. he State Senator Thomas V. Craven I as brought alternate cheering and 1 laughter from the crowd when he told ( to of the mayor's record in the manage of ment of the city's finances and, with or burning sarcasm, lauded him for wish- I to ing to save the state $25,000 to be r spent on the probe commissielon. "On Tuesday night in the Sixteenth 1e Ward," said Senator Craven, "Mr. a Font charged that the city govern- I w ment had incurred a debt of over d $700,000 in direct violation of the Con a. stitution of the State of Louisiana. h )f This debt was not authorized by you. d You had expressly forbidden Martin n Behrman to incur this debt.

And yet Martin tI Behrman holds up his hands in holy er r horror at the thought of spending S$25,000 on the probe. To use his own words in speaking of his record, 'Can f you beat it!' t "Behrman don't like the newspapers. I don't blame him. Without the press his record would be his own private I property, and your money and my p money could be spent as his whim and fancy moved. The papers stand be I tween the Behrman system and civic bankruptcy. They are the only check Sthat the people have en the extrava. gance of the ring. No wonder Behr. man doesn't llke them!

Here, from a rough-edged opening approximately 25 feet in diameter, and which may come through from China for all any body knows-since it has been sound ed to a depth of 1,000 feet and no bot- t tom found, there bubbles forth about t 18,000,000 gallons of 185-degree hot I water, possessing untold medicinal f value, every 24 hours. b This health fount was distaovered t by a wandering band of Indians. When a the white man came he named it "Blg e Horn Hot Spring." because the water tl was inally tumbled over a 40foot cliff u in a beautiful wrterahll to the river b below. A city was built by the river. They called it Thermepolle (Hot Sty), n becaub of its nearness to the spring. The government purchased the traet an which the spring Is loasted in 1837.

SERVANT OF THE P. O. DEPARTMENT WILL ENJOY LIFE. is On last Saturday at the ['nited ur States Post-office, a ceremony took k- place in which figured one of Algiers fy prominent men: namely. Joseph si- Hughes who for 45 years has had con tinuous service with the U'nited States o Government in the branch of the Rail ty way Mail Service. at John Kirber, acting president of the ti- local association of Railway Mail 'e( Clerks in a short address reviewed ir the record of Mr. Hughes, and he laid ig stress on the fact that Mr. Hughes' ie retirement was not due to inefficiency mn nor of lack of interest in his work, but vs solely because of the rules of the gov s ernment. i Mr. Hughes was presented with a' m gold monogram watch fob attached to which was a charm on which is in ir scribed as follows: "Remembrance n from co-workers upon retirement from 1 Railway Mail Service, August 21, . 1920f1, after 45 years of service." Mr. d Hughes was very much touched with e this ceremony but was able to respond e. in his characteristic way, and by the d time he had finished he left no doubt :t in the minds of the donors that he n fully appreaciated the gift. In speak ing to the employees present, Mr. SHughes said: CHALLENGES YOUNG MEN. t "I resent the imputation that we are I too old for any good work," said Mr. Hughes. "And I challenge any young e man of my age to a race around the block or from the rear to the forward end of a mail car." (lHere he had to pause while the applause subsided.) "Cennect yourselves with good com panions, be kind to your families, help your friends and do your duty to hu manity and when the'time comes to leave them you will have no regret." Mr. Hughes was further honored by the Masonic employees of the Railway Mail Service by presenting him with a handsome blood-stone ring with the MAsonic emblem engraved. Accom panying this ring was the following letter: "Your Masonic Brethern connected with the Railway Mail Service here with tender you this small token of their esteem and good fellowship upon your retirement after forty-five years of loyal and conscientious service. Our best wishes attend you and may Great Architect of the universe grant you many more years of usefulness i accompanied with good health and sac cess." r BRIDE-ELECT RECEIV9 nAND- a SOME PREBBNT. a "Having the honor tonight to ex- t tend to you heartful congratula. tions. in the name of our Manager.

Burgis of the West New Or- k leans Light and Traction Co. has pre -a pared a memorandum of agreement h which has been submitted to the Street -. Car Employees in Algiers for their s 'onsideration and adoption. N- Negotiations are now going on be tween the men and the company. e The agreement submitted is as fol 11 lows: d WVest New Orleans Light & Traction Company and South New Orleans Y Light & Traction Company. t Memorandum of proposed new agree ment. Offered by the Company on August 17th. 1920. a Working conditions and relations a with the Amalgamated kAssociation. to remain similar to those specified in a the old agreement, but with some minor modifications which, to both parties, shall appear to be fair and reasonable. The wage scale to be increased; and the seniority bonus to remain effective, as a reward for. and ackowl edgement of faithful and continuous service. Application to be made to the Public Authorities for an increase in ear fare. in order to permit the company to pay higher wages. The intention is to change the scale of wages on September 16th, if pos sible; or that the change be retroac tive to that date, to the extent of not to exceed thirty days. If the base rate of car fare is made 7 cents, the base rate of wages will be increased from $64.00 per month to $128.00 per month, and the seniority bonus will be added thereto. If the Public Authorities should re fuse to give the relief the company will ask for, or should defer the grant ing of that relief, the company will. for as long a time as it is financially able, pay the conductors and motor men a moderate increase, commenc ing on September 16th, by advancing the base rate of wages from $64.00 per month to $96.00 per month, with the seniority bonus added thereto. a The proposed wage schedule would result as follows: The highest paid motorman (13 years in the service) would receive in a 30 day month, $143.50, and in at 31 day month, $148.28. s The new men would commence f receiving in a 30 day month, $12: .0 p and in a 31 day month, $132.27. s' li all cases, overtime would be added, as at present, at the rate of time and a half. a PARTY. a - ti Mr. and Mrs. Mike McMahon en- bi tertained their little grand daughter, fi Ira May Gaffrey on the anniversary to of her eighth birthday at their home II in Elmira avenue.

Hehrman, as an individual. is a there incident in his campai-n. lie is only one of the harassing politi cal boils that infest the body politic. His position only maket him a bigger and a sorer boil. Behrman is the t main issue, because by his own re t peated claims, by his public utterances, r by his acts and by his manipulations, he is the titular head of this ".a chine." The conceit, the supra-self confidence that has led hin to inject I- himself, willy nilly, in this campaign, has made him the legitimate main tar nget. Ie is the type of politician that crops out spontaneously from the vitals of this political system. A little more daring, a little more in genuity. a little more cunning, a little better knowledge of the game, and a little less scruple in employing ob jectionable means causes such a type to be crowned "King." Behrman's affability to friends and supporters, is no more an issue than his conceit; his sociability, with those he likes, is no more an issue than his arrogance; his generosity to friends and political neutrals, is no more an issue than his political hatred and vindhitiveness. Behrman is the main issue, because by force of autocratic habit, he not only has assumed con trol of his star chamber organizea tion, but practically assumed sole di rection of public affairs, tHe must be eliminated from public office, because when you perpetuate the head. you perpetuate the system. C Bebrman is not the desirable type of man for mayor of a great modern progressive community. He repre sents an effete, discarded, discredited political system.

I Behrman has a weak conception of the elementary principles of a repro.. sentative government and he is woe "1 fully deficient in sound princi ples ef public policy. The writer iill n. select only a few ef many proofs in p4 I confirmation of this statememat. dl By word and act, through his entire n administration, Behrman has assumed n that the Executive is the authorized and competent judge as to whether. the laws framed by the legislative in branches of government are to be en forced or not. As the infallible in- re terpreter of public opinion, HE is at gi liberty to enforce them or not enforce m them, when and where he pleases. A t notable example of this attitude is the ab unwarranted liberty he has taken with in the Sunday saloon~closing law. vii This is a dangerous attitude, a most v'cious principle and subeersive of wi the spirit and duties of three branches lij of government, the Executive.

It hasnd caused the streets of the city, paved and unpaved, to be left in such a deplorable condition that they are an eye-sore to resident and visitor alike. It has forced the Mayor to re fuse cooperatio to State onfealth au thorities and caused him to treat them with flippant sarcasm and transpar ently thin ridicule, when they called attention to the filthy, dangerous and disgraceful condition of the public markets. For a supposedly serious executive to ward off confession of negligente, by sneers was puerile and unfair. This bankrupt condition has also crippled the school system, through lack of safe suitable buildings: through want of necessary equipment; or the maintenance of an efficient teaching staff. Behrman. in the first years of his administration, showed some interest, some zeal for the school system. But when he saw an anaemic tubercular city treasury: when l'e saw the city's revenues swallowed up by a burdensome and profitless pay-roll, he became helpless, his ardor cooled, his zeal ftell to artic temperatures and school improvements ceased. 'The Sewerage and Water Board is just now singing a lamentation of Jeremiah in the financial wilderness; and the Industrial Canal is slowly re covering from financial apoplexy, brought on by Behrman's methods. In a .most every department of pub lic service, improvements are stag nant, efficiency metionless, the wheels of progress idle, except in the wild imagination of the Head of the Ticket, "Pronu whtl all blessings flow."

And yet, taxa tion, assessment, contribution have become distressingly, almost crusheb ingly burdensome. Is Behrman an administrator of recognized ability? With what mis givings,. what doubts, what resentment must even the residents of Algiers, think of Behrman's administrative ability, when they cross on the ferries in one direction, and try to cross the viaduct in the other.
