Joe Barberas, the man's brother, of Napoleonville, who has N been in the city since Saturday lead- d4 ing the search, positively identified o] the body. PI MAN LEAPS OFF FERRY d LIFE BOAT NEARLY SINKS The unfortunate man leaped from the Canal street ferry, en route to Algiers, at 12:20 p. m. Friday. Two life preservers were thrown to him, a but he made no effort to reach them. P A llfe boat was launched from the ferry by one of the crew and an r obliging passenger, who made an tl effort to reach the drowning man. On the way to the rescue it was C disepvered by the obliging passenger a who was in the life boat with one A of the crew that the life boat was a badly leaking, in fact so much so that the rescuers had to look out C for their own lives. It was neces- A sary to stop and bail the life boat, b when it was found that the bailing J i plug was not screwed into its place, i and the rubber emergency ball, which b is also a part of the bailing appa- a ratus, was also out of order. The S drowning man had, however, long disappeared. In fact his body never h came to the surface after he jumped c into the water. b Let us presume that the passenger had accidentally fallen from the boat r and had made an effort to save him- g self. What assistance he could have i. gotten is expressed above. A life boat with the bailing plug left open, ' one incompetent man from the crew of the boat, and a volunteer passan ger constituted the life saving efforts of one of our ferries that carry daily I thousands of women and children across the river. Don't you think, dear reader, that we need a change in our ferry Ssystem?

V Editor Herald. Algiers, La. Dear Sir: In the letter you pub lished in your last week's edition, from Commissioner Maloneyd there are several personal allusions intended to reflect upon the writer, which I t1 would request that you give me space W to straighten out. 14 For instance, the Commissioner n states that I was in possession of ' documents showing that the City had o a written agreement with the Union a Ferry Company, when our Ferry Com- a mittee asked him by what authority c the Third District Ferry was being b operated. I may say that I have never seen any such document, but t on the contrary was told by the of ficial in charge of such documents, that there was no such record, said official handing me at this time, a copy of a letter on said subject, writ ten by the attorney of said Union Ferry Company, to the then Mayor, dated January 2, 1907, said document, according to said official, being "all he had on the subject." It is of course possible that something had been found later on, but the above are the facts as for as I am con cerned. In another part of his letter, the! Commissioner seeks to disqualify meI from further corresponding with the I Commission Council, in the ferry matter, on the ground that back in 1910, myself and associates refused to pay the City for the advertising of the right of way for a certain trolley line, which right of way the City subsequently found itself unable to deliver-all as Mr. Maloney would have found, If he had made a proper investigation before making this "bad break." As for the rest of the Commissioner's letter relating to the ferries, which it is assumed was intended as an answer to the Com mittees questions, I can only say that the Committee will no doubt take this up for consideration just as soon as the Commissioner attempts to of fer his "franchise" for sale. The Committee is on record as insisting that said franchise, if offered over 5 our p.otest, must include a positive ) guarantee on the City's part, that it Swill deliver, on a fixed date, to the a successful bidder, the boats and i paraphernalia of the ferry business, at fixed figures. , There as several other statements , in the Commissioner's letter which r. "do not conform with the facts in the a case" as we understand them, but these also will, more than likely, re ceive due attention when the occasion requires it. And there are a few other pertinent questions which we have not yet asked whose answers, if forthcoming, might further illumine this ferry situation. Yours truly, PETER S. LAWTON, Chairman B. F. S.
