Body Found In Water N
Identified By Brother
The body of Sam Barbera, the man I
who was said to have jumped off the
Canal street terry boat Friday,
was found at the head of Dumaine
street by a dock board patrol boat
Monday. 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
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.

we need a change in our ferry

Commissioner Maloney
New Orleans, Aug. 14, 1922. 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
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,
Chairman B. F. S. Com.
