Seeond-That this batture was covered with about two feet of sand except at the river's edge, where the usual erosion of the sand bank had taken place and underneath the sand was solid clay of a firm texture. Third-That, strange to say, while this batture mentioned in front of the Ward place projected into the river for over ninety-five feet from the bulkhead, several feet above the water, both above and below the Ward place, the river was up to the bulkhead and im mediately above the Ward place a large ship anchored almost againqithe bulkhead. Fourth-We have been informed that your Honorable Board or your Engi neer did not cause any borings to be made so as to discover the true condi tion of the underlying-deposit of soil. Fifth-That, the construction of this levee is extremely important to the people of Algiers, destroying as it will the appearance of the main street and forever denying them of possible hope for the extension of a belt road on that section of the river front. Sixth-Since excavations have been made on this front, preparatory to levee construction the soil thrown up was not rotten sawdust as we were led to believe it would be but a sandy loam of the same character as that with which most of our levees are built. Seventh-In dliving piles on the front, plssers by have noted that the piles penetrated extremely slowly through the soil at times making pro gress of buit a fraction of an inch at a stroke. Eighth-We have been informed that there is a wide divergence of opinions among engineers familiar with river work and with large river experience as to the necessity of the character of work which is about to be built on Morgan St., some holding the view that the old levee line can easily be held and the levee constructed upon that line and due to the gravity of the irreparable loss about to be forced upon, we believe the work should not be done upon the opinion of any one engineer, but if it is to be done, then it should be after recommendation of several engineers who should peas upon the matter. All perses, at times, are liable to err and engineers are no eseetloms to the rule. We are In a potlea to take you to leve recently constrased In the Parfi e OrfA s, on the pi of necessity which is now known by all parties who have looked upon the work, to have been erter of Judgment. The instant case may be a similar case. All we ask of your Honorable Board is a careful consideration of the facts in the matter and all necessary relief s4ould ybu believe we are en titled td same.

He stated that Mr. Maloney was courteous in his position, and promised the necessary relief in the matter as soon as possible. This matter as well as the matter of a new franchise, or operation under Municipal Ownership, reduced tariffs and other matters of equal importance, in connection with the ferry proposition was thoroughly discussed, after which Judge Sam Levy gave it aqpis opinion,Jthat the present owners o" the Canal Street Perry contract were not getag to do -aything for the relief 'of the ferry patrons, unless they were absolutely forced to it, and he was therefore, in favor of calling an indignation las. Meeting of the citisens of Al Ukr- to protest against the present conditions. Mr. Donner stated that he agreed with Judge Levy in this matter, but felt that Mr. Maloney, on aecount of his seeming interest in this matter should be allowed sufficient time In which to set on the game, and he would therefore move, that unkes, there is some In dieatiao of action on the part of Commissloner Maloney by the time of the nat meeting of the commit tee, for the committee then to ar rsage for the alling of such a meet tai asproposed by Judge Levy with Jn tn days from that date.
