BUILDING BIG FREIGHT ENGINES IA)( OMOTIVES ("OST $70,000 EACH-IMI'ROVEM ENTS IN AIA;IERS SHOPS TO TOTAL $200,000. Another made-in-New Orleans loco motive has been placed in service, and is holding its own with the best en gines from anywhere. The Southern Pacific lines, to meet the rapid increase in transportation requirements, have undertaken to build at their general shops in Al giers, twelve heavy Mikado type freigh locomotives. Two of these' locomotives were completed last! year, and the building was then tem porarily suspended because the shop facflites were %eeded for mainten ance and repairs. Upon return ofi the road to corporate management, the building was resumed, and anoth-' er of these locomotives was comple ted August 14. The remainder ofI the lot to be constructed will follow in periods of about six weeks. These locomotives are of the most modern type, and are larger than any other locomotive operated by these lines in the state of Louisiana. The engines have cylinders twenty-six inches in diameter, twenty-eight in ches in stroke, and are operated at two hundred pounds per square inch boiler pressure. The boiler is pro vided with superheater, delivering steam at a temperature of about 600 degrees Fahrenheit. The weight of engine and tender in working order is 437.000 pounds-the engine alone weighing 281,000 pounds. The trac tive power, or pull that can Ibe exert ed by these engines, is 51,075 pounds, which in this level country, is suffi cent to pull a train of 200 loaded cars. The locomotives will be used on some of the hilly divisions of the West Texas lines where they will handle trains of from sixty to ninety cars. The engines will cost about $70,000 each. The Algiers general shops are ,quipped for fabricating all parts of these engines, although some of the heavier parts, including the main frames and cylinders, were purchased in a semi-finished state from manu facturers equipped to do the larger work. The shops are at present being considerably improved by the addition of some modern machine tools, involving an investment of about $200.000. and further improve ments are under consideration' for the coming year.

I) A. candi date for mayor, visited Algiers on Tuesday morning for the purpose of meeting personally and becoming ac quainted with the people of Algiers. Johnson Iron Works. the New Orleans Ivry Docks and the wharves were vis ited in turn by Mr. McShane and his party. Mr. McShane was brought in touch with hundreds of men, and men in all ranks of life spoke to Mr. Mc Shane. Permission was granted on the evenlng previous to Mr. McShane's visit by Mr. Oelkers. superintendent motive power, Southern Pacific, to allow the candidate and his party to go through the yards. However, when Tuesday morning Mr. McShane en* tered the yards he was met by Mr. Oelkers himself, who told the former (McShane) that no further progress through the yards would be allowed. Mr. Oelkers very courteously explained that he had nothing at all to do with the matter, but that word had been received from headquarters in the city prohibiting Mr. McShane's visit. How the city office was aware of the can didate's visit is not definitely known, but it is inferred that certain ring employees of the shops, when told of Mr. MaShaae's intended visit, has tened to have it stopped. A theme of interest connected with this incide.' is the fact that at the time of Mr. Oelker's announcement Mr. McShane and his party were standing in Verret avenue, a thorough fare which Mayor Behrman has kindly allowed to be closed in from public use. On the whole, Mr. McShane's visit was entirely successful. Those com prising his party were Messrs. N. E. Humphrey. Louis Munstermann. Chas. Hantel, Charles Donner and !Melggs O. Frost, of the Item. MACHINE POIJTICB COST DE TECTIVE POSITION, HE DECLARES. Machine politics has lost a Job for Walter Caron. 915 Eliza street. Ac cording to his story he was discharged from the Boylan detective force be cause his superior favored Behrman while he believes in McShane. While on duty Saturday morning at the Poydras street market Caron says he saw a crowd of n1en on a truck stopping to bear down¶McShane posters and replacing them with "Vote For Behrman" signs. His story further is that he saw two Ital ian market men, the Scaratino broth ers, expostulating against the deed, handled rather roughly by the machine men. Caron says that he dnterfered and arrested three of the machine men, whereupon the others fled. The three men in his charge he turned over to the policeman on the beat. He does not know what happened to them. A report was given on his action In making the arrests, he says, by some person unknown to him, to his super ior, Captain Brunswick. Tension with his office resulted, which culmi nated in his dicharge Tuesday, charged with Ibeing off his beat Sat urday night. Caron says now that be is going to work hard for McShane's election. He has organised a truck parade which he promises will start from Behrman's own ward in Algiers and proceed through the city Thursday night. Mr. Al.

Mayor 'Martin Behrman was de scribed as "an elder brother" by Mrs. Eleanor G. Graham. chief speaker at the Fifteenth Ward ring rally at Elec tric Park. Algiers, Tuesday night. "I like to think of the mayor as an elder brother." said Mrs. Graham. "Parker promised the women the bal It. But after he was elected he said that we might have it--over his dead body. But let's forget all that. Let's talk of our elder brother. We are go ing to put our shoulders to the wheel and make September 14 a memorable date. We want a big man. We want a man to move the city up a few steps and make it the first port of the land. instead of the second. In voting for Mayor Behrman you are vindicating yourselves and your city." "When the women are with a pub iHe servant, he is right." declared Loys Charbonnet. "The mayor began life as a grocery clerk." he continued. "Today he is the best posted man in official life. He knows the wants of the plain people. After all the charges. New Orleans is charged only with not being a completed city. There is none. We learned only in 1920 that New Or leans is not fit to live in." Miss Florence Huberwald spoke next. "If Mayor Behrman had been governor. Louisiana would have had the honor of enfranchising 25,000,000 women," she said. "He is the only mayor who has ever done great things. There are no epidemics; the mortality rate has diminished. He has succeed ed in welding the foreign elements he is the great amalgamator. Under him New Orleans has grown to be the city beautiful, the second port." Brief addresses were made by J. B.
