SCHOOL CHILDREN FREE.
Beginning January 1, all school
children will be carried absolutely
free on the ferries crossing any
streams in the state of Louisiana.
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.
