WEST SIDE EVENTS.
What Representative Mea Think About
the Amcadmeati to the Viaduct Or
dinanceGeneral Disjnst Felt.
Among the public spirited citizens on
the West Side the action of common
council Thursday night in tacking on a
raft of amendments to the viaduct or
dinance was looked upon with general
disgust. The question is:" "Will the
attention paid to other sections of tna
city makes votes for the viaduct meas
ure, or will the additional appropria
tions asked for Injure the proposition
on election day?"
Druggist John J. Davies, to a Trib
une reporter, expressed his opposition
to the "tacked on" amendments. Mr..
Davies thought that the people would
not vote for so great an appropriation.
"But," said he, "do you know that
aome people are In favor of these other
Improvements at this time. They
think that by helping the people in
other sections Hyde Park itsttif would
be benefitted ; that the viaduct meas
ure will never pass on its own single
merits, but that It must have some
side issue which tickles the Hellish
spirit of other than Hyde Parkers."
Mr. Da ties' favored style of viaduct is
the kind built on Market street, in
Philadelphia. This would be a solid
construction of masonry built upon
and taking the place of West Lacka
wanna avenue. The buildings on tne
sides could be so remodeled that the
viaduct would be to them as the road
was before the change. The second
story, for instance, would be the first
under the new order of things, and the
stories below the top of the viaduct
could be used as store rooms or as
H. D. Jones, ex-city assesor, and a
member of the West Hide board of
trade, is one of the few West Side
people who 'favor the tacking on. Mr.
Jones' words show shrewdness, at
least: "That Wyoming avenue ex ten -8km,"
he said. "Is needed. There Is
only one street In the city which is a
direct outlet to the Oreen Itidge sec
tion, that is the much .tumbled up
Washington avenue. By extending
Wyoming avenue the city would have a
better outlet, as the grade Is better."
Mr. Jones favors the viaduct on the
south side of the avenue, according to
the Oliver plan.
Dr. W. A. Paine does .not believe in
the tacking on business. He pointed
out that Hyde Park did not wunt the
Linden street bridge; it was forced
upon us. What is wanted is the via
duct, that above all other earthly
John H. Reynolds calls upon" the
West Side councllmen to unite in op
posing' any Improvement advanced by
anp other part of the city until the
viaduct proposition Is allowed to go
before the people.
T. Fellows Mason, ex-presldent of
the board of trade. Is not in favor of
the bunched Improvements. He favors
the Oliver plan.
The plan of viaduct, which Is to
cross from Nealls' court to the south
erly end of the Lackawanna avenue
bridge does not meet with much favor.
Quite a number of gentlemen hud plans
of their own. One was to bridge across
from the corner of Palrvlew avenue
and Price street to the Scranton end
of the Lackawanna avenue bridge.
Councilman Uilroy was much talked
of. One viaduct enthusiast who paid
his compliments to him, said: "He
wants to buy his own property and
have some one else pay an exorbitant
price for It."
President E. M. Clarke, of the Scran
ton Traction company yesterday after
noon with' Ueneral Manager Frank
Sllliman, jr., held a short conference
with members of the West Side board
of trade in regard to the street car ser
vice on the West Side. The meeting
was held In the directors' room of the
West Side bank and there were present,
besides the two company otllcials, E.
M. Clarke, president of the bourd; Al
fred Twining, A. R Morse, T. Fellows
Mason, Dr. P. F. Strutller, lion. John
H. Furr, P. 1 Furrell. Common Coun
cilman Simon Thomas, and common
councilman Joseph Oliver. The chief
subject of the conference was the pro
posed Lafayette street line. The com
pany is anxious to construct a line from
Main avenue to the Hack road and to
give a twenty minute service to the
people In the untapped Keyser valley.
Owing to the narrowness of the first
three blocks on I.ufayette street a track
Is looked upon with disfavor by the prop
erty owners. Ho anxious is the company
to have the line opened on this street
that at the conference yesterday Presi
dent Clarke in behalf of his company
offered to pave the entire width of the
street for the three narrow blocks for
the privilege of laying the track on
the side close to the curb stone. The
board did not favor the Lufuyette street
line at any consideration and the dis
cussion turned to other thoroughfares.
