The police jury of Jefferson parish
ier denied the application of the South
na New Orleans Light and Traction
lis ('ompany for permission to raise the
street car fare from five to eight
ife cents at a special meetiqg held MIon
he day afternoon in the jury room at
x- the Gretna courthouse. There was
a large crowd present, all seats being
of occupied and standing roonm at a
th premium. Protestants against the
raise, as well as the striking carmen
tr- nali their symplathiziers were in the h
ift throng.
ert Jules G. Fisher. proshlent of tile
n police jury, plresided. The only
ab.ente,,e was Hugh Burbank.
n. After Mr. Fisher called the meet
by ing to order and explained tho pur
ey pose for which it had been calledI, E.
c Howard MiCaleb. Jr., attorney for
the company, read the petitlon, in
Pd which the case of the company was
. set forth at length, a complete pre
sentation of data relative to its
tinances featuring the document. The
company contends that it cannot
rtteet the men's denmands for in
r creased pay with a five-cent fare.
B. P. I)auenhauer. city treasurer
e. of Gretna. spoke against the appli
cation and presented the numerously
signed(l petition of protest against the
m raise in fare as requested by the
d comtpany.
On the roll call, the vote was prac
n tically unanimous against the appli-
e cation.
E. W. Itiargis. president of the com
i I pany dipllonmatically answreod the
,t quiestion as to when he Intended to
. operate the cars by saying: "When
ever we can."
d There have been several applica
I tions for positf)tns as motormen and
conductors. but the applicants have
refused to take out the cars upon
learning the schedule of pay and also
that a strike is on. It appears that
the company has but one course
open under the present circumstances
and that course is to attempt to 0
operate the cars on a half-hour h
e schedule on the Algiers-Gretna line.
e and an hourly schedule on the nt
Gretna-Marrero line. which would
L. have the effect of reducing the num- a
i. her of employes.
e Following the refusal of the Jef- w
e ferson parish police jury alonday to tl
grant an 8-cent fare to the South P
New Orleans Light & Traction Co. d
e on the Algiers-Gretna line, the Com
mission Council Tuesday declined to
take action until a further confer
ence is held with the Jefferson offi
cials in an effort to smooth out the cc
tangles involved in the double fran
chise. In a final effort to reach an ol
agreement. Commissioner Glenny tl
met Presidiint Fisher of the Jeffer- th
son police jury yesterday. m
E. W. Burgess. general manager tl
of the South New Orleans Light & fi
Traction Company, presented his ea
company's request for an increased ni
car fare in a somewhat modfied w,
form from the first request made by M
the company. His new proposition th
is for a cash fare of 8 cents: the
sale of tickets in five or ten lots at
7 cents each. and tickets to school
children for 5 cents each. is
Mr. Burgess says the employes of cI
the railroad are all out and they ur
will not go back to work under the se
old contract and the company can ve
not pay what they demand unless ti
the increase is granted. He said su
the company was denied relief in
Jefferson parish not from any rea
sonable business analysis of theo
company's petition, but because of a
popular clamor in Gretna and the co
decision to hold strictly to the fran- of
chise agreements. Following a gen- t
eral discussion the question went
over until after the conference be- dii

.\ notable meeting in the ramshackle shed dignified by the name of
"rit ry lHouse" which adorns the river-end of our ('ity's grand
BIoulevard. was held on Saturday morning last, when a conmittee from
ou r newly organized nIon-political civic organization met the ferry corn
. panry's repres(entative b.) appointment for the purpose of laying before
the ferry comlpany the resolutions passed by Algiers citizens last Thursday
night at ('lark's hall.
d Mr. John It. Norman. chairman of the local committee. in language
'as polite as it was firm. substantially told Mr. Walter Verlander. who
represented the ferry company, of the "herding" and the "penning" and
the "prodding" which had been so long inflicted by ferry conditions upon
the Algiers people, which conditions were aggravated if possible, by the loss
of one of the houses, which recently took a "plunge-bath" in the muddy
Mississippi. with disastrous results. While the ferry company's repre
sentative resented any imputation that he was not entirely conversant
with all present and past conditions, including what he might have termed
a the unfenced and un-shedded "pasture" now so conspicious at "Algiers
Point", he seemed to be astounded that the "long-horns" as someone
dubbed them at the Clark Hall meeting, were not "faring" as good as
could be expected, now that they could enjoy the open air and its ac
companiments of sunshine and rain, to say nothing of the gentle zephyrs
that waft the dust and the smoke of the "Fords" in our faces, as they
come screeching through the hapless "herds" on the animals' gang-way.
But to again get serious, let it be understood that Mr. Norman as well as
f other members of the committee., made it clear to Mr. Verlander that
the temporary shelter which should have been provided, say 3 days after I
- the "cave" of October 2nd. would have to be installed at once, if a mass r
meeting of Algiers citizens, properly denouncing present conditions at 3
these landings and approaches, is to be avoided. While Mr. Verlander
finally agreed that if a certain collapsible steel shed he said he was daily
expecting by rail, would not have been on the ground at Algiers by Wed
I nesday (yesterday). he would begin, that day, to erect the temporary
waiting room and its necessary gang-way. Replying to a direct question.
Mr. Verlander stated that the steel building referrea to, was not to be
the new ferry-house, but was to be used as a temporary shelter while the
main house was being constructed.
Mr. Verlan~i'r has no idea of admitting, however, that his company
is violating a single requirement of its franchise, which nevertheless in
cludes a uniformed attendant and ice water at the several ferry houses.
uniformed officers on the boats, caps on the deck-hands (not boot-blacks),
separate, comfortable waiting rooms, with separate modern toilets. (well
ventilated, heated, and lighted) at the several landings, ticket-sellers and
ticket-takers on both sides of the river, etc., etc.,-the passengers being
supposed to be provided with gang-ways separate from the wagon gang- I
way. "which shall not be used by foot passengers." Mr. Verlander took
occasion to say that the ferry owners do not. as spme people think, stay
awake at nights devising -hardships for their patrons, but that on the it
contrary. they have been and are always ready to do what real 'servants ft
of the people should do---serve the interests of the traveling public, using
their facilities, to the best of their ability. a
Members of the committee declare, however, that they could not C
divine whether the ferry company's representative was a profound humor
ist, or whether he actually thought that his statements and arguments to
were persuading. Be this as it may, however, the committee left the
meeting convinced that from now on, there will be a marked improvement al
in conditions at the Canal street landings, since the ferry owners being E
business men of prominence, cannot afford to further ignore the just rep- M
resentations of the people of Algiers, protesting against the continuation R
of the harsh treatment they had been forced to submit to in the past. L
'"During the thirty-five days since the destruction of the landing a'
place it has rained only twice," one of the committeemed said Saturday. L
"While the weather remained ideal, the hardships imposed particularly
upon-*he women and children, have been borne patiently by the Algiers
people, who constitute the bulk of the travel. Cold weather with rains
being imminent now it was decided no further delay in the matter can be d
tolerated." A
Besides Mr. Norman, the committee was composed of the following:
Judge Martin S. Mahoney. Julius Bodenger. J. P. Vezlien, Mrs. Henry
Donnerl[elser, Mrs. Edward Yalets and Peter S. Lawton, president of the
league. The representations made by the committee were expressed in a
resolutions passed Thursday at a meeting of the organization. M
John Mangiaracina, Jr.. popular
cashier of the Jefferson Trust and
Savings Bank, has resigned to re
enter the service of the Interstate
Trust and Savings Bank, with which
he was connected Tor a number of
years before becoming connected
with the Gretna institution.
