Resolutions Adopted. The committee of 21, which was authorized at a citizens' meeting held on Feb. 14th. made its first report last Monday night, at a meeting held at the Playgrounds. Notwithstand that everyone realized that the com mittee had won its fight with the Ferry Company and had, through the Intervention of the governor, won a truce from the Dock Board, a very respectable gathering extended a very courteous hearing to the several speakers who stressed the importance of continued moral support for the committee until at least the Dock Board yielded to the city the 486 feet at the foot of Canal street. Several of the speakers urged the backing of the governor and the Commission Council to the limit, since it would be only through these powerful agencies with their corps of attorneys and enkineers that final success in this ferry matter could be hoped for. It was explained that the long de lay in straightening things out at the foot of Morgan street, was due to the fact that the Jerry comnpany's con tract, as written under the old city l Council, precluded the enfqrcement f of "ny contractual violations through t thedabsence of any punitive clause in sai'' instrument. t ,udge Sam Levy presented the n several speakers; Messrs. P. S. Law ton, J. R. Norman, F, C, Henning, and C. J. Donner, the committees acting secretary, who read the fol- t lowing resolutions, which were un- t animously adopted. Mr. Julius Bodenger was given a vote of thanks for his resourceful ness in providing for the meeting in the few hours notice given him. The following -resolution was adopt ed: RESOLUTION.

Mr. Rene Clere had the follow ing to say: C "I would now suggest that after s the armistice is signed, a committee b be appointed representing the dock a board, the city council, the commer cial Exchanges and the citizens of c Algiers. to thresh out this subject in c an amicable and intelligent manner. c so that those who use the ferries, as well as the commerciat interests, may be properly accommodated. "While a difference of opinion ex ists on this pubject, I am, neverthe- 1 less, satisfied that all parties at in- a terest who have no axe to grind, are I sincere, and are trying to do some- a thing beneficial and constructive. I Therefore, we should not lose this opportunity of obtaining a ferry house that will net only be an orna ment to the city, but will be adequate r for many years to come. "The dock board needs an office building for the concentration of its i various offices. Why dot have the 'dock beard construet ach a butidkag, I which wouTd serve as a ferry, house on the ground floor and for dock board offices above? If there be any objection to having the dock board construct such a building the city then should do so, bat, in any event, I do not believe that it would be good policy to have the lessees of the ferry privileges construct such buildings. "Plans could be worked out where by such a building would not only be serviceable and ornamental, but space could be left on each side and in front for lawns. I am also of the opinion that a neutral ground should be constructed in the center of Canal street, and that the street cars should be operated on such neutral ground, and that a paved driveway should be constructed on each side- of the nen tral ground, and that the railroads crossing Canal street should be made to rearrange their tracks and to pave and maintain the section occupied by their tracks. A Schillinger walk should also replace the present plank walk on the upper side of Canal sitreet. "San Francisco has such a ferry house as I propose, and it is owned and operated by the Board of Port e Commissioners. I see no reason why all parties at interest cannot get to r gether and obtain this most necessary ' facility." City Has Priority Right. . The city has priority of rights in Canal street where it touches the Ir river, and the Dock Board is without y authority to construct a warehouse across the street Acting City Attor ir ney Michel Provoaty ruled Friday, g after conferring with Arthur Mc IGuirk, special counsel for the dock n board, Mr. Provosty says he is con vinced the city's right in the street n are supreme, and he is sure he can Il convine the dock board his position y is correct. d SRPRISE PARTY.
