Sunday morning Mr. Tony Con neno of 521 Lamarque St., boarded a street car with two heavy grips on his way to Gretna to catch a T. & F. train. In his rush from the house he had neglected to take small change to pay his fare. He tender ed a five-dollar bill to the conduc tor, and as the conductor had no change. Mr. Conneno was compelled to get off the car. While we understand it is part of the franchise that the company is compelled to furnish change to the extent of $2.00 only, we feel reason ably sure that Mr. Burgis of the Rail way Company would have forgiven this conductor for carrying the man to the depot and trying to get change there. The company or conductor would have been out but five cents and it would not have caused the great inconvenience and disappoint ment. Rules are rules, but common sense and good judgment are always re warded. ENJOYABLE EVENING. Mrs. J. B.

H s-- " .--I `"- J. '-- ., . . .. " -, " -h III_ I~~, . , ! Hennen Block Now [ Canal Bank Building It wasn't so many years ago that 1 the Hennen building was built and the wise men of the city wagged their heads and said even so modest i skyscraper as this could never be t commercial success in New Orleans. But it has had to be enlarged, to neet the growing demands of the I :ity and of the Canal Commercial bank, which purhacsed it for its I uew home. .The enlargement was accomplish ad by addition of another story, building of an annex and the bridg- 1 ing over of Varieties Alley to con sect with the old Cora building. The total cost of the work is about $660,- 1 00. This does not include the cost Af the banking fixtures. The transition of the Hennen build ing into the up-to-date Canal-Com mercial building represents not one ,peration but a series of operations. First the old hydraulic elevators A4 )0 ,ll Abslttited by moder electril elevators. One by one they were converted, and extended to the l !leventh story. Then corridors were nit through the main Hennen build- 1 ing and bridged across into the Cora uilding. The first floor of the ,ora building had in the meantime I )een prepared for conversion into he new boiler room. Then bathrooms were put on every foor instead of being concentrated n the eleventh story; a new system ,f plumbing was put in and the! iulding was completely re-wired for electrical fixtures. With this done, it was possible to proceed to construdtion of the an nex on the Oravier street side. An. excavation was made foiF the base nent, piles were driven, retaining 4 walls erected,. and the tedious work I Af erecting steel work begun. The inne likewise has 11 stories. The peal work began in March, 1920. The exterior of the two lower loors, both on Common and Caronr lejet streets was removed and is Being replaced with Bedford Indiana . imestone of a single design in the 1 Italian Renaissance style, with well proportioned arches and cornice to I )e carved in chaste lines. The steel -ash, plate glass and Marquise at 1 he Carondelet and Common street I entrances will be of the architectural 1 features of the business section. The eleventh floor addition will be finished in color tones harmoniz Lng with the original terra cotta and Street Not Used for Pasture Now RESIDENTS ARE GRATEFUL FOR ENFORCEMENT OF CATTLE ORDINANCE. A public effort was made a short time ago by a few residents down the coast and other outlying sections to have the city "set aside" the pres ent Pound Ordinance which was passed Sept. 5th, 1917, but only en rorced since the O.

Mr. Lawton pointed out that our great port facilities could be in creased very greatly by building whirves in Algiers where ships could discharge and take on cargoes either from shore or from lighters. It is stated that M.r. McClosky is very much in favor of the plan. Ir. Lawton also took up the matter of extending the present bulkheads and piling which were recently con structed at the ferry landing to the, Johnson Iron Works, joining their wharf, thus giving further protec tion to the "Algiers Point." Mr. Lawton will also go before the Levee Board at its next meeting to urge the board to help in this work. MALONEY TO AIfDRESS ALGIERS CITIZENS LATER ON. STILL STANDS FOR MUNICIPAL OWNERSHIP. In replying to a letter of Invita tion from the Algiers Civic League. to address them on the subject of ov ferry service between this and the other side of the river, Commis sioner Paul H. Maloney writes the 'ollowing letter which speaks for it self: Com. Council, Dept. Pub. Utilities. February 19, 1921. Mr. Peter Lawton, New Orleans, La. Dear Sir: Your letter advising of a meeting of Algiers citizens in re the new ferry franchise, and their invitation to have me address them on the subject, has been received. The invitation to address those in terested is duly appreciated; how ever, I don't think it quite proper at this time for me to accept. If you will permit a suggestion. I would say this-let your committee investigate very thoroughly all conditions per taining to the ferry proposition, de cide what method or plan would best suit your people, and then con fer with this department. I assure you I will be'very glad to cooperate in the plan that will be substantial and best suited, and when that is decided upon, we will proceed to its adoption. My personal opinion at this time is municipal ownership- a ferry and its benefits for a ferry-using people. However, that is only my opinion. I shall be very glad to have your Ideas on the matter as soon as you are prepared to give them. Very truly, Paul H. Maloney, S Com. of Public Utllities. QUALIFIEI AS ASSISTANT PHARMACIST.
