This law has been in effect for some time, having passed the legis lature at a previous session, but it was not applicable to the Canal street ferries, for the fact that they were operating under a fran ehise that had been acquired prior to the legislative act. The franchise, expiring on the last day of this year, will compel whatever company that is operating at Canal street to carry all school children tree of cost. The parents should remember this, as the saving will amount to a great deal during the year. IBUO(O PARTY.

THE FUItRE THE HERA MAY BE PURCHASED THE CITY PROM WALLA ROYAL SREET. COURT REFUSES TO F CLOSE MARKETS Private Establishments Violating Distance Law, Judge Rules. Judge Wynne Rogers denied the a petition of Philip Foto to cmnpel the s city of New Orleans to revok,- the. 1 licenses of all private meat markets . within 3200 feet of a public market r operated by him at Teche and Hlomer c streets, the right for which he paid c the city $13,157, he alleges. In ruling against Futo, Judge Rog- d ers sustained exceptions filed by the city of no cause of action. lie cited. a city ordinance covering the mat ter, to the effect that the city engi neer is responsible for issuance of f permits for markets, and that the engineer is "amenable to prosecu tion" if he has issued such permits in v violation of law. ts Foto alleged there are twelve mar- d kets within 3200 feet of the site h,, leased from the city for twenty-five r years. It is declared there are more than 800 other markets in New Or- I leans that would come under the same ruling. No date as to beginning or expira-; tion of the period for which he leased I the site for his market are given. Judge Rogers pointed out In his de. cision.
