(,f Article 14. which would enable the city to own operate said terries, which article reads as follows: "For he purpose of constructing, acquiring, extcnding or implr- ig any revenue-producing publlic utility, the Legislature may au ze municipal corporations to issue bonds. secured exclusively, ipal and interest. by mortgage on the lands, buildings, ma *nery and equipment and by pledge of the income and revenues such public utility. "Such bonds shall not be a charge upon the other incntm and revenues of the municipality and shall not he included in computing the indebtedness of the municipality for the p)urlpose of any limita tion herein."

Ild, cut all fares in two. s would mean that the City could pay 6 percent on a $750. 'bond issue, while placing $30,000 a year to the credit of a sink Amd for the extinguishment of the bonds. It would mean besides, that passengers would be given upper accommodations on perhaps a 7 minute schedule at the rate say to crossings for 15 cents, while their tax for the privilege of in Algiers. was being still further reduced through a propor cut in fares from 2o to io cents on the deck below. ee is no more doubt that this can be done than there is that like the "Pickles"-say 25 feet longer with about one-third iower, together with the necessary double-decked pontoons pacent opproaches--can be installed for the amount men These boats, it may be said, would, besides their increased ae rdders at both ends, which would permit them to run hile they would handle vehicles simultaneously MaStUt swould enable them to run straight from one to the other, while their ability to load and unload at the time, would permit them to get away from the landing in *e time now consumed. lt should be definitely known now in a few days, whether our Council is going to give us all these good things we are entitled to and things we can have, if said council will .One thing is certain and that is that said Cquncil has been of the situation and that it has been advised that the time ibugaboo of "Municipal Ownership" must not. be given any t this discussion.

Aswciat ion of ('ommerce May Act in Matter The Algiers citizens held a confer ence 'Monday afternoon with the committee of the Association of Commerce on Civic Affairs. The object of the meeting was to acquaint the committee with the work that had been done by the Algiers Ferry Committee in demanding that the city of New Orleans take over and operate the ferries for the benefit of the public instead of selling a franchise for the benefit of a corpor ation. The meeting was held in the rooms of tlI Association of Com merce, a full delegation of Algiers citizens being present. The sub committee of the Association of Commerce consisted of Col. Allison Owen. Mr. Frank Dameron, and Dr. A. B. Dinwiddie. The personnel of the Algiers com mittee was as follows: Messrs. J. R. Norman, Dr. C. V. Kraft, Adolph Spitafaden, Jr., E. W. Burgls, J.

Lawton, chairman of the Algiers ferry committee sent the following communication to Hon. Paul H. Maloney. Commissioner of Public Utilities. "New Orleans, La., Sept. 25, 1921. Hon. Paul H. Maloney, Commissioner of Public Utilities, New Orleans, La. Dear Mr. Maloney: There being but eight more days during which bills may be intro duced in the Legislature, now in session, I would like to be Informed as President of the Algiers Citizens Ferry Association, if the city has found any new legislation necessary to enable it to cut the present ferry rates to that of a "municipally owned-and-operated' basis, and if so. whether the bills (It any) neces sary to bring this about, will be pre sented and urged at this Legislative session. We "want to report to the people of Algiers. who, as you are aware, are being subjected to a tax as onerous as it is unnecessary, in this ferry matter, and who are therefore, reasonably expecting early relief at the hands of the present City Admin istration. I may say that, notwith standing the work done by the Citi zens Ferry Committee, and the numerous conferences held with the members of the Commission Council both individually ,and collectively we have received no definite infor mation on this matter up to this time, and we therefore trust that under the circumstances, you will not consider this request as being un timely or improper. Personally, we am well aware of the strenuous ex perience you have had with other large matters which have taxed your time ever since your induction into office, and we can only offer as an apology for this intrusion, the vital economic importance of this subject matter to not only every inhabitant of the Fifth Municipal District, but to those of the entire city of New Orleans as well. Very truly yours. PETER S. LAWTON. Chairman." p1PTH DISTRICT CIVIC IAGUS. SThe Fifth District Civic League will hold its regular meeting on. Mon day, Oct. 3rd, at the residence of Mrs. Chas.

A plan whereby the borrower will be refunded the expenses paid by him in the purchase of a home through the "Dixie" will shortly be announced, the actual details, while not fully worked out is another step toward helping the Home Owner. William J. Sonnemann directing head of the Association, said that the re ducing of the interest rate in 1917 by his Association to its members, a rate that has not been met by any other Homestead or Building and Loan Association in the State has placed the Association foremost among the Homesteads, this is shown in that its membership is larger than many Associations operating in New Orleans for 25 or 30 years and its resources greater than many operating in the city for 30 years or longer. Mr. Sonemann leaves shortly for the East to look into Homestead and Building and Loan affairs and on his return will place the proposition before the Board of Directors for approval, when announcement to its membership will be made. Mr. Sonnemann has been one of the leaders in homestead work In Louisiana. He has brought forward many new stunts in homestead asso ciations work. Besides being con nected with the Dixie as secretary treasurer, he is also a director of the City Branch of the Whitney Central Trust and Savings Bank.

F1ItItIES ('OMI'PELS lWA(GON TO GO( TO THIIII DlISTRIICT. An incident occurred a few days ago that just adds another thorn to the side of our business men on this side of the river who are compelled to suffer some of the ill treatment ac corded them by the Southern Improv ment and Ferry Comany. A wagon load of roofing paper came to the Canal Street ferry for Algiers. The first ferry would not take the load merely waving the driver back. When the second boat came, the driver was told that the load was too heavy, and would not be permitted to cross on the Canal Street Ferries. This had al ready caused a delay of a half hour and it was necessary for the driver to go to the Third District ferry to cross. Is the refusal of the Southern Im. provement and . erry Company, to ac cept heavy loads an acknowledgement of the insecurity of the steel pontoons on either side of the river, or is the deck of the boat not strong enough to carry the load? If the Third District ferry, a much smalher boat, can carry this load and if the old pontoons at this ferry can hold heavy loads, there certainly must be some reason why they are refused at Canal street. SATURDAY WILL BE AMERICAN LIBERTY DAY. Preparations are rapidly being com pleted for the monster American Lib erty Demonstration and Pageant which is to be staged in New Orleans Saturday, October 1st.

Buddecke has been in active charge of the plans for the demonstra tion, and he states that all automobile owners and Individuls are Invited to participate. Major Buddecke is just back from Wahington where he went to complete plans for the New Orleans demonstration and he says that the "Capitol of the Nation has it's eyes on the South's largest city." They have have had the verdict of New York and other sections of the country, and the demonstration in New Orleans next Saturday will show the sentiment of the South. ALLEGED LIQUOR RUNNER.
