To discriminate against this yard in
favor of those of the North Atlantic,
simply because it happens to be in
strongly Democratic territory. Sena

tirely beneath t(1 administration.
"The yard during the past year
has been doing considerable work
for tke United States Shipping Board
and the army. The number of em

to that yard by the governmental
Prior to the war, namely June,
1916, the number of employes at the
New Orleans Navy Yard numbered
221: at the present time the payrolls
of the station number approximately
1050 employes in all. This consti
tutes an approximate increase of 400
per cent within the last five years.
The activities of all navy yards
are being reduced since the war com
mensurate with appropriated funds
available and the demands made byl
the fleet upon individual yards. The
development or reduction of the force
at a given navy yard depends to a
very large extent on a preconceived
plan of bases to accommodate ves-:
sels of the fleet. At present time
the fleet requirements for the navy
yard at New Orleans are limited to
the repair work on small naval ves
sels stationed within the Gulf and
the Caribbean. It is not contem-i
plated, to make any change in the
allocation of forces to the navy yard
at .New Orleans.
With regard to the petitlon of the
emp~gyes of the Naval Station, Sec
retary Denby stated that it had been
carefully analysedLby the dap-prtmet

tion reduced to writing. This state

APPEAR BEFORE COUNCV
At Tuesday's meeting of the City
Council, Peter S. .Lawton and Dr. C.
V. Kraft were given a hearing In ,con
nection with the objection of the
Algiers people to the obstructioen of
Canal St., at the river by the balld
ing of wharves across the only open
space in the city of New Orleans
along the river front. The two Al
-giers men pointed out the different
objections of placing a wharf across
the end of Cana 1St. ft was decided
by the council to take up the matter
at once and make investigations.
On May 4th the frame cottage on
Behrman- avenue, owned and occu
Spied by Justin Hotard, was totally

not only seriously hamper the opera

the lives of her passengers as well,
were presented by this committee

At said meeting said committee was

that when the time arrived, ample

improved service proposed, the de
tails of which can be readily sup
plied, should not be less than 300
feet instead of the 200 feet presently
allotted to this ferry in its existing
franchise expiring on December 31st,.
of this year.
As taxpayers and citizens whose
every interest is affected by the char
acter of this ferry service, we have
adopted this means of appealing to
your honorable body as custodians
of the franchise of said ferries, to
intervene in this matter requesting
the Board of Port Commissioners to
officially set aside, at this time, a
300 foot water space for the future
needs of said Canal Street ferry ser
