They said it would be the proper courtesy to take the matter up with the Dock Board and to obtain a defi-, nite statement. Mr. Black said he had no objections to a reasonable delay. On a vote on the resolution it was lost. Mayor McShane, Com missioner Black voting to hold the matter open for a day until Mr. Hud son can be reached. Com missiorers Ray and Murphy voted for the reso lution. Mr. Donner said the best proof the Dock Board has not changed its plans is that they are rushing the agree ment with the coffee peQle and that it will be signed as soon as it is completed. Commissioner Murphy said the Green Coffee Association has been trying to put this proposition over for three years and if there is any delay in the opposition the protes tants will lose. At the request of Commissioner Maloney. City Engineer John Kiorer made an investigation of the ferry situation and the needs for the ser vice. After an investigation and with his intimate knowledge of the situa tion, Mr. Klorer sent the following letter to Mr. Maloney: "I have your letter of the 8th inst. with reference to the ferry landing at Canal street. "It is a well-recognized fact among steamboat men that the foot of Canal street is a very vexatious and diffi cult landing to make during bank full and food stages of the river, on account of a strong eddy that extends at times from Conti street to about JulB street. I have frequently seen this eddy running so strong as to cause the ferry to miss. Its landings when the boat was under the direc tion of unquestionably able and ex perlenced pilots. "The troublesome factor is the va riable character of this force which changes ia degree within a tow mie Oterr,. As: lbe d ad tie i. r. and In coatending with it, the pilot snceessbtlly lands his beat by rely lag as much on his Instiect aad Judgment to estimate its fore* as he relles on his steering skill. "This being so, he should not be cramped for space, as he has to make a landing while proceeding in a di rction parallel to the beak, as dis tinguished from the usual quartering dirsetion that obtains in askting ether ladlgs. avling in mind the frequent misses made id attempted sandings. I should not consider it infe to have less than 150 feet clew, space ahead of his landing place, which will give the pilot less than a minute withlin which to steer away from the wharf line, or away from a vessel tied at the wharf line. It two landngs are to be operated at Canal street, I should Judge a mint map trntnge for fteary purposes of -4-O e should be provided for. 'efrequency of landings at this s p~ in day time and at night, Irrespective of wind, sand other ad verse weather conditions, in order to mntatn a schedule---the large num ber of passengers carried on these boats, probably 12,000 per day--and be difficult river conditions herein eferred to, all point to the advisa biUty of providing ample space to hermit easy and safe access .to, and ik r otre trom the ferry pontoon. "!t is mg opinion thmt the above reservatlona for space are not exces dye or unreasonable." Monday morning at 8:15 the louble cottage, 505-11 Wagner reet, was damaged slightly by fire mesd-- by hot esals from a store in he kLithes.
