The West Side Borough Father! Fail to
Secure a Quorum.
The special uneting of the West
Side oonncil, which was called for
Saturday erening.failed to materialize.
This was due to the failure of sufficient
members absenting themselves from
When the time for convening arrived
there were present O. C. Foster, F. B.
Sanders, John Struthers and James
Sutton. It was therefore decided that
a meeting be ealled for next Thursday
evening, Feb. 22
The meeting was ealled for the pur
pose of considering and passing upon,
if found satisfactory, the ordinance of
the Traction corapnny now before the
council relative to the paving, etc.,
portions of the streets upon whioh are
It is calculated that, fit the rate of
$1.38 per yard, which is the price of
paving which the Traelion company
Hgrees to pay, the money that would be
received by tne boromru from the
company would be iJS.OOO for paving
between the rails aud $9,200 for paving
outside of the rails on Wyoming and
Luzrue avenues, Tne ordinance also
provides for the payment of 0 per cent,
interest on $8,000 from April 1, 1803, to
the time of payment. The above cal
culation is for brick, laid edgewise. At
the present rates for paving, it is esti
mated that the cost for paving b
tween the rails, with bricks laid flat,
would be 71 cents per yard, and for
paving outside the rails, bricks laid
edgewise, 93 cents.
At these rates the money received
from the Traction company would pay
for the paving of eighteen feet, having
but twelve feet for the property hot a
ers on both sides of the street to pay
for. The cost of paving half of the
above, six feet, in trout of a sixty foot
lot would be about $40.
It is the concensus of opinion that
the above terms are right and equita
ble with the exception of one thing. It
is nnderstood the council will insist up
on the company filing an indemnifying
bond of something in the neighborhood
of $20,000 to insure the faithful per
formance of carrying out their pledges.
This done, it is said the council will
give the company no further trouble, ,
