Indications are that if the public insists on the work being abandoned, the dock board will do so, although it stands to lose quite a tidy sum of money; but the hope is expressed that some compromise may be reached, whereby the board will put up the shed for temporary use, with assurances that it will be removed within two years. This would give the board about $180,000 in wharf fees and releve the river-front situation. If this arrangement is adopted, the board would begin work on a hand some ferry house as soon as possible, with offices for the board upstalrs. It would take about two years to build this, and as soon as it was built, the Poydras street extension would be removed. Then Algiers would have space for increased ferry ser vice, and the ferry house would fit in nicely with the city-beautiful plans, It is stated. In the meantime, the dock board owes $32.400 to the Pensacola Ship building company for the structural steel work of the shed. It was voted Thursday night to order this material to be shipped, to be erected tempor arily, if the people give their con sent, or to be held in storage for use at another part of the wharf front when the board has enough money to add to it and build a shed worth while. The board is bound by its contract to the Pensacola Shiphbuilding com* pany, it was pointed out, and it is just a question of whether storage on the completed material will be -pald for in Pensaeola ot New Orleans.
