cobble stone. The work will bo started
this morning, nnd will be under tho
direction of the bureau of highways.
The cost' of paving will be stood by
tho city. At the point where tho pave
will be Inld tho street Is very narrow
and wagons are compelled to go Into
the gutter Ho allow cars to pass, this
soon causes a rut nnd constant Using
makes tho street almost Itnpnssnble.
Last year the city paid over $200 for
having crushed Btone put on tho road

stood the test for a while It soon gave

as ever. The cost of paving will bo
about $250 nnd In tho Interests of econ

Work done. '
The work of macadamizing Garfield
avenue, Is being steudlly pushed and
soon tho street will boast of a broad

Tho question of sewer is a matter
that is agitating a large number ot
people in this borough at present. The
council nre apparently deadlocked very
securely on the matter of awarding tho
contract, three favoring the bid of M.
J. Gibbons, for $74,770.73, and three
wanting to award it to O'Boyle &
Donohue, for $GS,3ai.60.
As has been stated In this column be
fore, the difference between the bids Is
mainly in tho matter of rock to be re
moved which all bidders have figured
as 48,000 feet, the estlnmte made by
ex-Borough Knglneer Knight. The bid
of Gibbons for rock wus 60 cents per
foot making a total ot $2S,800; O'Boyle
& Donahue's at 35 cents per foot was
$16,600, Tho mutter that the general
public cannot satisfactorily understand
Is why the bid of the Joseph Hendler
Construction company whose price for
rock wus 18 cents per foot or a total
of $13,440 for the rock work, does not
merit the votes of at least some ot the
councllmen. Their totul bid for the
sewer complete was $61,575.75, about
$4,000 less than their nearest competi
tor. It would seem that th'e star chamber
decision of the sewer committee that
they were not responsible bidders wus
somewhat presumptlous In the face ot
the fact that their certified check for
$500 accompanied their bid, to be for
feited In the uvent of their failure to
execute a contract an1 (lie a bond of
$20,000 Within ten days,
