Ilp to the present time, there seems

rather pay two cents more and ride

directly in front of their door, than
pay an eicht cent carfare.
Transportation to Gretna and other
points on this side of the river reach

i sound, conservative and remunerative.
There have been a number of similar
corporations organized in this city
during the past few years and every
one of them has shown very satisfac
tory earnings. The rapid growth of
the automobile industry, making the
financing of the business through or
dinary banking channels impossible,
is the chief reason for the existence
of companies of this kind. In the East
and North there are scores of gigantic
institutions engaged in this business,
which has filled a long-felt want and
is here to stay.

Organize Algiers Civic
League. Indignation
Meeting To Be Held
At the office of the Herald last
Thursday night a new organization
was born, to be devoted to the inter
est of the people of the Fifteenth
Ward. The meeting was called for
the purpose of protesting against the
service which is not being given the
Algiers people by the ferry companies
operating between this and the city
side of the river. One of the princi
pal complaints broueht out was that
the Southern Improvement and Ferry
Company has not given a temporary
shelter for its passengers since they
lost the other ferry house, about a
month ago. A complaint was also
made against the schedule now being
maintained, and other violations of
the company's franchise.
Mr. Peter S. Lawton. who has al
ways been an ardent worker for the
Fifth District, was elected president
of the organization and William Smith
was elected secretary.
The other officers of the associa
tion will be elected at the next meet
ing, Which will be held at Clark's
Hall, on Thursday, November 12th.
A special committee which was ap
pointed by the president for the pur
pose of calling an indignation meet
ing and mass meeting will hold a
meeting tonight at 8 o'clock at Clark's

the same night. and formed themselves
into an organization to be called
thereafter "The Algiers Civic League,"
and conferred the honor upon me of
being its first president.
The purpose of the call was to work
for the relief of Algiers in the matter
of our ferries, and I have assumed the
liberty of naming you a member of a
committee to take all necessary pre
liminary steps toward accomplishing
the ends sought. I tried to select a
non-partisan committee, and at the
same time enlist the best talent in
Algiers suited for the work at hand,
and I sincerely trust you will accept
of the appointment and meet with us
at Clark's Hall. Elmira avenue and
Alix street, at So'clock p. m. on next
Thursday. November 5th.

meeting and assuring you of my ap

This service is offered to our adver
tisers free of charges, furnishing spe
cial cuts representing all businesses
as may be chosen by the advertiser'.
There are indeed few weekly papers
in the country who are able to main
tain a separate stereotype plant for
their advertising service and their
readers. It is the Herald's aim to so
make our paper as to give the very
best service possible.
We invite advertiertisers to rin us in
reference to cut service for their ad
vertis ements.
The Ilerald will also be able to cast
different news features which will bhe
sent to us weekly from the large
houses sending out syndicate matter.
These news features may be found in
different pages of this issue of the
herald. On this page is a picture of
the cotton picking machine which is a
sanmple of this service.
