Abstract: Let be the positive cone in a totally ordered abelian group . We construct crossed products by actions of as endomorphisms of -algebras, and give criteria which ensure a given representation of the crossed product is faithful. We use this to prove that the -algebras generated by two semigroups *V*, of nonunitary isometries are canonically isomorphic, thus giving a new, self-contained proof of a theorem of Murphy, which includes earlier results of Coburn and Douglas.
