There was nn attendance of about
thirty persons nt the triple confer

Attorney Gcnernl Cooper Introduced
tho subject for discussion, which was
tho question of streets and alleyways
for i..c rebuilding of Chinatown burnt

for tho purposo was hung on the wall.
It was proposed to cut up blocks wltlr

Col. V. P. Allen thought that tho
question of tho extension of tho fire
limits should bo settled befoio that of
alleys. His oplulon was that tho flro
limits should bo extended to Ilcrctnnla
street and tho river.
C. S. Desky suggested that fac

so that property owners and others
should have a clear Idea of the subject.

Minister Mott-Smlth preferred wide
alleys. He had seen much lnconvcnl-
enco clsowhcre caused by teams meet
ing in narrow alleyways. The alleys
ought to jc of much benefit for the
handling of merchandise as well as tho
removal of garbage. Ho would make
the alleys eighteen feet wide.
Mr. Dodge, referring to tho map,
thought fsomo of the blocks were too
Attorney General Cooper, who had
taken the chair on Dr. Wood's being
called out, thanked tho citizens for
their presence and suggestions, which
would be of material assistance to tho
Hoard of Health In determining tho
Geo. Campbell advised departing
from old street lines altogether and
laying out a new town plan so far as
the burnt district was concerned.
Mr. Magoon seconded this sugges
tion. Tho streets had belonged to tho
Government and property holders
could be compensated within reason.
J. A. McCandlcss having Just enter
ed had not heard what had been said
by others. Ho would suggest an alley
for at least every 120 feet, and allow
no moro shacks to bo built. Tho Hoard
of Health could not extend tho flro
limits, but ho would advocate that be

of bullmngs to bo permitted should be

or disposition of the public lands of

They would provo n great relief to tho

Inclined to doubt nnd discredit, but on
examining tho circumstantial detail of
tho reported edict, ho said
"I am unable to say whether it Is

J. A. Magoon thought tho question ot

block. It seemed to bo taken tor grant
ed that tho territory was ngnln to bo
occupied exclusively by tho Chinese
and Japanese. This might not provo
tho case. Ho advocated the inclusion
of a park In whatever scltome was con
sidered. A. V. Gear feared that alleys It mado
too narrow would only offer futility for

P. J. Lowrey was much lit favor of
tho Idea of alloys as a relief from the
congestion of trafilo in tho streets.
E. S .Cunha favored alloys flttceu

Mr. Edwards, engineer in cltargo of
tho sowerage works, said tho depth ot
tho lota as mapped out was sulliclent
for alloys ot fifteon feet width. This
would leavo enough room for yards In
rear of streets on either side. No mat
ter how narrow tho alloys, the poorer
class of people would havo dwellings
facing upon them. Therefore, it would
bo well to havo tho alloys not too nar
row. J. P. Colburn wa3 In favor of tho ox-nt-.dnn
of tho firenroof building limits.
W. C. Achl would have tho alloys
twenty or twenty-four feet wldo, as
they would undoubtedly bo tho loca
tion of homes for tho poor.
J. P. Mendonca had no suggestion to
offer, but would stand by whatever ac
tion was agreed upon.
H. Holmes thought tho alloys, oven
If two parallel ones wero required,
should bo wldo enough to meet tho re
quirements ot law for tho minimum
width ot thoroughfares upon which
