Lest evening the regular meeting of the
street commlttce of city councils was held
in select council cliamber mill all of the
members were present.
Crossings were erdered nt the following
places, upon the application of dlfferent
members: Mulberry and Fulton streets,
Walnut and Vut, Rockland and Church,

Wm. II. Brown, chlef engineer of the
Pennsylvania railroad, appeared before the
cotnmll(ee,and President Cummings stated
that he came te cenfer with them In regard
te the proposed brldge ever or under the
railroad tracks at Franklin street. Mr.
Brown said that the railroad .company Is
oppesod te nil grade crossings and they are
anxious te de away with them. Tncre are
tee many everywhere and at this late day
he did net think anybody was favorable te
them. As far as Franklin street was con
cerned the railroad company Is willing te
run a brldge ever or under the trucks If the
city will grade up or down te It. It would
be far better and cheaper for the city, If net
for the company, te have nu overhead
brldge (under the tracks) for ninny differ
ent reasons. If they run u brldge ever the
tracks high embankments would have te
be made which might cause damages te
adjoining properties. The engineer thought
n move towards having the brldge com
pleted should be made at once. He showed
plans for different kinds of bridges.
The city solicitor, who was present, said
that if a bridge was made under the tracks,
which the members of the committee
seemed te favor, the first thing te de would
be te have the court change the grade of
the stroet, se that kind of n bridge can be
made. The solicitor was erdered te take
steps te have the court change the grade
at ence, as well as that of Hamilton
street, which will cress Franklin. The
street commissioner was ordcred te put in
geed condition the remainder of Franklin
The committee agreed te recommend the
laying of asphalt blocks en East King
street, from Llme te Duke, provided tin
property ewneis raise a sum equal te $3
per lineal feet. On the sumo conditions
they will recommend the paving of Duke
street, from Grant te Orange, nnd en Grant
street, from Duke te Court aveuue. The
county commissioners are expected te pay
one-half of the cost of the last named work.
J. L. Stelnmctz, ose,., appeared befere the
committee and asked that they take into
consideration the lowering of the grade of
Christian street at Grant. The committee
agreed te meet Mr. Stclumetz en the
grounds and leek Inte the mall or.
Mr. Selium complained that the pole en
Jeseph Derwarl's pi emlses.en Seuth Quecn
street, had net been romevod by the
electric light company, ns the street com cem com
miltce had ordered. The street commis
sioner stated that the light people told him
that they had moved the pole three times
for Mr. Derwart and he finally told them
he 'warned it off his premises entirely. A
sub-committee, consisting of the chair
man, street commissioner and Mr. Selium,
was appointed te see what could be done in
the matter.
The street commissioner was ordered te
make repairs te the gutters en New Helland
avenue east of Shlppcn street.

The following was read from the street
commissioner ;
Te the Committee en Mreett, (V City 0 .mi
Gestlkmes: I beg leave te respectfully
submit the following suggestions and ro re ro
cemmondatious for your consideration :
1. Numerous complaints have been made
te 1110 that the frequent use of the street
sprinkler 011 our streets Is Injurious te the
roadway; and from my own observation
I find that in seme parts of the city, par
ticularly whero shade trees are nuiiioieiiH
and the feliage dense, the streets are sel
dom dry, and thoreforo niore liable te be
cut up than If only occasionally made wet :
but as an offset te tills objectlon the public
demand seems te favor the sprinkling
rather than be anneved w ith the dust.
2. I have a list prepared of from sixty
te sevonty-flve new feet-bridges, of differ
ent forms and sizes, thnt nre needed, and
would suggest that thoybe made of Iren,
In sizes and thickness adapted te the ro-spcr-tlve
locations. The wooden bildgcs
new In use seen decay, are easily broken,
and are elten stumbling blocks Instead of
a benefit te pedestrians.
3. I tlnd from personal observation that
about two-thirds of our street crossings
need raising. While te de this would bu
attended with considerable expense, the
gcneral public w he use them daily would
be greatly benefitted and gratified.
4. I have about llnUhed the work of
cleaning the streets. I made' it a point net
only net te clean every macadamized
street, but also all cutters, bridges and
sewer Inlets en said streets and many
ethers which were in a filthy or obstructed
condition. I feel justified in saying that a
mere thorough cleaning never was made;
In fact, seme of thew streets had never
ben cleaned. It will net ue miesiinuee.
that this thorough cleaning of the stieets
net only- conduces te the eomtert of the
lesidents by reducing the anneyanre of
dust, but thnt It is of vast advautage in a
tnnltary point of view. I would thoreforo
suggest that prevision be made te have all
cur streets cleaned, net ence In many
years, but twice overy year, and the cross
ings as often ns they may roqulre It.
5. My attontlen has frequently been
called, and my own observation has con
firmed it, that many of the city line and
grade stones are out of place, seme as much
ns eight or leu menus uuuvu 1110 jrjveiiieui,
often eauslriir pcople
in nuuiuieaiiu inn,
and therebv subicctlni: the city te the uen-
timjenuy of suits being instituted for dam
uges. At ether places these stones are en
tirely tee low, and ttt Others net- In place
it all, but lying In the gutter. This is an
Important matter, Involving street lines
and grades, and should be neglocted no
0. And last, but of great Importance te
the city. In the maintenance of the streets in
geed condition after they are once macada
mized or repaired. The streets should te
frequently Inspected and when cut, or
hole, or ether defect appears 11 should at
onto be repaired and net left year after
year until it becomes a great annoyance te
the travelling public and requires a large
quantity of stene and much labor te put It
in geed condition; whereas, a few stene
applied Irt the beginning would have saved
the annoyance and most of the labor and
oxpeuso. Te de this I suggest that ene or
mere depositories be provided in dlfferent
sections of the city whero stene could be
stored, se that when a cart lead or part of
a lead is needed for miner repairs it can
be had conveniently. I make this sug
gestion en the presumption that the con
tract for furnishing the city with breken
stone does net require the contractor te
deliver a lead of stone te a half dozen
different places and perhaps that ninny
different parts of the city. The great
distance or the location of the crusher trem
the cltyef ceurse renders Itlmpracticable for
this te be done by one of the city carts.
This Is a jKilut en which I desire instruc
tions befere the stene Is ready for use, se
that I can arrange my work accordingly.
Anethor Important matter Is that some
suitable building should be erected where
that valuahle piece of machinery, the read
roller, could be placed while being used en
the strcetR. At prosent, by the kindness of
Mr. B. J. McGrann, It Is kept at the Park
grounds under cover, but this could net be
deue when being used dally. The gum
cover that was In use Is worn out, and It
should net be left exposed te all kinds of
weather; something should be done, and
that speedily. Hoping, gentlemen, that
you will glve the foregoing suggestions
your consideration in the near future. I re
main, yours respectfully,
L'dwinS. Smkliz,
Street Commissioner.
The street commissioner was Instructed
te notify the proprietors of the street
sprinkling line te be careful and net use
mera water than Is necessary In such
locations whero shade trees nre lo
cated. The stroet commissioner was also
instructed toadvertlseferirnu feet-bridges,
of such thickness and design as he deems
best. In regard te the raising of crossings
they thought the work should be done, but
they have net get sufllcient funds te have
thorn all lalsed. They agreed te raise theso
that needed It very badly. The committee
were unanimous In the opinion that the
streets wero better cleaned than ever be be bo
eoro and they thought the results would be
beneficial. They could net autherize
anether cleaning en account of the shoit sheit shoit
ness of funaV.
The commissioner and regulator wero In
struct oil te replace grade stones where they
are out, and lewer or ralse them whero
necessary. The commissioner was glven
permission teue his own Judgment in the
matter of storing supply stones at different
places. The commlttce think a building
should be provided for the read roller and
they will Uiko seme action In the near
future iu that direction.
