The Algiers ferry committee, which presented a bill to the Legislature last week, directing the Dock Board to take over and operate the ferries between Algiers and New Orleans for the benefit of the public instead Iof enriching a corporation, has met !with signal success up to the pres ent time. The sub-committe of the ferry committee went to Baton Rouge last Wednesday to appear be fore the committee. Addresses were made by John R. Norman, P. S. Law ton, Henderson Norman, Hy. Acker, Chas. Donner, Senator Chas. Hen ricks and Representative P. F. O'Donnell. The committee was in deed pleased to know that Mr. Hen rricks and Mr. O'Donnell had come out publicly in favor of the bill now - before the Legislature, and told the committee that they would support it to the best of their efforts. The bill as presented directs that the ferry system operating between New Orleans and Algiers be taken over, purchased and operated, and improved, for the benefit of the pub lic. This bill was printed in full in the last issue of the Herald. It also provides that the revenues accruing from the said ferry system should not be diverted to any other fund except for the ferry service and im- nee provements. dii During the hearing of the Algiers ch. committee there were a good many Do protests against the bill; namely, M, communications, either telegraphic Mt or by letter, from Mayor McShane, Or Commissioners Black and Murphy, ce and the president of the New Or- m 3eans Dock Board, Mr. Hecht. of These opponents, who were present se by letter or telegram only, gave various reasons against the bill. gl President Hecht of the Hibernia tel Bank and Trust Company and pres" In ident of the Dock Board, gave as GI I his reason that the Dock Board had go - too much to do already, but the gr Algiers people feel reasonably sure th that the taking over of the to I ferries would not be giving more w ,(werk to Mr. Hecht that be coud Md I not well stand. In fact the citisens a!would almost guarantee that Mr. t Hecht will not be compelled to put Di D In any overtime. Notwithstanding the protests that of s were presented against the bill, the by I Alglers ferry committee received a tb I unanimous report in favor of the bill ly t and there was not one dissenting it voioe heard. It was a big victory cc I for the Algiers committee in the be- or ginning of this fight. cc t The bill was introduced by Repre sentative Archie Higgins of Gretna, I whose constituents are also inter l ested in the present ferry system. P Mr. Higgins brought a similar bill e before the Legislature two years ago, cl e but was defeated by only one vote, T the particulars of which were given D at the time. In speaking about the I bill before the Legislature, Represen- n tative Higgins said that the Commis- b sion Council is trying to grab the money derived from the sale of the franchise and divert it to the general fund, instead of pattaing it into ferry betterments, thereby ignoring the rights and complaints of the Algiers people. He described the ferry ac-t commodations as the most flagrant a eimposition that he has ever wit- b nessed.

IERRY COMIMITTEE'' SENDS RESOLUTION TO CITY COUNCIL Condemn Proposed New Franchise. Tut th, To the lionorable, the Mayor and Members of the Commission ilo Council of tile City of New Or- $5.' leans: Dear Sir-I have been directed by I'n the Comnmittee of Seven. which is a sub-committee of a Committee of Twenty-one members appointed at a mass meeting of the residents of Al- "T giers to look after their interests in an ferry matters and which su-coiom- \V, mittee, for one year or more, has de been in conference with the honor- Hii able Commission Council. endeavoring al, to obtain relief at your hands from lnt existing ferry conditions, to deliver to the Honorable Commission Council, gi the following resolutions. unan- a imously adopted at a meeting of the w. Committee held in Algiers. this, the hi 19th day of June. 1922: Be it resolved that this Committee' ti is unalterably opposed to the sale of he I any franchise for the operation of ferries between New Orleans and 10 Algiers and will ever object to and w oppose the sale of such a franchise. gi Reserving all of our rights in the ni future, as we have in the past, to ri bring about the defeat of the sale of u, any ferry franchise operating be tween New Orleans and Algiers. both - eas residents of the Fifth District of t this City and as members of the Com- g, mittee of Twenty-one, we desire here- n e with to register our unalterable ob jection and opposition to the pro . posed advertised ordinance, authoriz ,ing and directing the Commissioner h of Public Utilities of the City of New Orleans to advertise for sale at pub e lic auction to the highest bidder for an amount not less than $200,- 0 o 000.00, a franchise covering the Canal Street and Third District ferries, which ordinance in our opinion, is a most vicious piece of Municipal leg- i Islation, containing practically all of r the objectionable features of the Canal Street ferry franchise ordinance d. adopted by the City of New Orleans u in 1906, concerning which ordinance d members of this Committee and the, A people of the Fifth District have, "' time and again, Justly complained, but apparently to no avail. At the last conference the Com-I " mittee of Seven had with your Hon-If orable Council, the latter part of May, r your Honors finally instructed the Commissioner of Public Utilities to prepare an ordinance, authorising the sale of a franchise for the Canal y Street and Third District ferries for ea period of fifteen years and Invited this Committee to join the Honorable te Utility Commissioner in the prepara tlon of the franchise, with the dis re tinct understanding that the assist ance we would give the Honorable Commissioner, would in no way com mit us to your policy, and reserving e to us the right to go to the Legis 11 lature for such relief as we might deem advisable in the premises. in With this distinct understanding, me unequivocally expressed and accepted. by this Committee, we conferred with ad the Honorable Commissioner of Pub r, lic Utilities and made a number of ad suggestions and alterations in the, f. proposed ordinance befose s. Im r. agine, therefore, our astonishment d- and disappointment when we read the proposed ordinance as published r, in the official journal of the City, to w realize that only a few of the sug i gestlons that we considered absolutely . essential to a proper ordinance was o incorporated in the proposed published e ordinance. 1st. We suggested that there be d-*incorporated in the ordinance, made of part thereof and attached thereto, de tailed plans and specifications of the ir- ferry houses, boats, pontoons, bridges, t etc., as we felt, not only that the he people of the Fifth District are en ir titled to know exactly what they are - to receive and expect from the suc cessful bidder, but that prospective st bidders are entitled to such data, for otherwise they could not intelligently e determine what their oblgations Swould be under the franchise. How ever, no plans or specifications of the Sferry houses, boats, pontoons, bridges, Setc., have been attached to and made part of the proposed ordinance, the door being thus left wide open for to worthless boats, pontoons, bridges, rfavoritism and far worse consae quences. While this may be the re sult and effect of this vicious ord *inace, we are confident you never Sintended it should be so.-Your at Stention being called to the fact, the remedy should follow. 2nd. We suggested penalties for Sviolatioas of ordinance obligations, only to ind that the published ord inance contains no penalties or fines for violations, by lessee, or ordinance Sprovisions, except the vague Inoper. ative obligatlioans of a bond. Srd. The proposed ordiace con tatn no forfeiture clause, in the event of violations of the ordinance, whether in providing proper boats, pontoons, bridges or otheriwse.-Why Not? 4th. We suggested, In order that in future years It might be possible to intelligently detremine what the rates, tariffs, etc., should be, that the lessee be requlred to keep an aecurate set o nks. wheren shall wner reno whatever genres. san sS -- w, ah Love Falters As Sweet Boy Is Held In Jail I do not knoa if I will marry Neil notw. said pretty. blolnde Carrie Wit tington. 1::10 Techle street.
