Denr Sir Your committee appoint
ed to expei Iment with Kort street, be
tween King nnd Hotel, with a view to
keeping tho same clean nnd watered,'
beg to report that for the past four
weeks a man has been kept constantly
on the street during business hours,
gathering up the refuse ns soon ni
propped, sweeping tho street continu
ally, and watering the same with two
,largo sized hand sprinklers. In spltn
jot the unfnornb!e natural conditions,
.due to the method of street paving, nt
'can report with absolute assurance,
'that the experiment thus far conduct
Cd convinces us that if followed out In
all the stieets of the city, would be
of Inestimable nlue to every business
. house in the city.
j Without the Immediate following of
all the other streets, this one block
would have to be abandoned, as all tlm
dun now blowing through this block
comes fiom tho street nboc, all til
which would Immediately stop if all
blocks emplocd the same method ol
j As the experiment, however, has
pioven perfectly successful, your com-
I mlttcc would heartily endorse n plan
whereby tho entire business portion ol
the city could share In tho blessings ns
J well ns the expense of such nn under-
'taking. The expense Item, we would
say, has been very light, and to the
j satisfaction of every house on tbo
As neither the Association nor nn In
dividual member can properly tnko up
this work, without gtent loss of time,
as can easily be supposed when n num-
ber of men are employed on the differ
ent streets, necessitating constant su
pervision, jour commlttte in consider
ing ways and means, believe It to be
wise to communicate with the present
owner of the street sprinkler, Inform
ing him of the plans of the Association,
uiglng him to tnke up the proposition
on the lines as laid dow n by the Asso
ciation. It Is almost certain that cither
ho or some ono else could be mado to
see first the great necessity for such
woik ns well as the soundness of tho
ptoposltlon from n business standpoint
That It would pay handsomely to any
ono undertaking the work we feel ns-
sured. us business men would not hesi
tate to pay liberally for work that Is
of real benefit. Your committee feels
further that the matter of street pav
ing for the business portion of the
city should receive Immediate and
earnest nttentlon from this Associa
tion. Thero Is no use laying back and
arguing that the government should
do this work. Wo know that, but wo

OHO. W. SMITH.
When asked as to the cost
work referred to In the report,
man Wlcliman answered that theie was
a first cost on materials which would
be about 75 cents for each house, and
that the cost of maintaining the sweep
er nt $1.50 a day would be not more
than an average of 50 rents n store In
a block. II said the blocks could not
be kept perfectly clean betauso the
blocks nbout were not kept clean.
In connection with the street clean
ing matter came a proposition of pav
ing. Committeeman Smith said the
Department of Public Works would
prepare the street for bitumen and
would have It laid If the piopcrtj own
ers would pay a share of the tost which
would amount in the rase of Fort
stieet to about $3 a fiont foot. Tho
bitumen was guaranteed to stand the
seat nnd would be noiseless anil clean
Mr. llumburg said that llnckfelil Sr
Co. bail proposed to the department
that If It could put down the concrete
foundation the firm would lay the bitu
men along Fort street In fiont of Its
own building. Mr. Smith said them
was no money In the treasury to do
nn thing with and that everything
must bo done by owners and tennnts.
Tho association passed a lesolutlnn
providing for negotiations between the
committee of the Association and Louis
Marks, now- In control of the stieet
sprinklers, looking to tho matter ot
keeping swept clean and sprlnKletl all
the down town blocks. A motion was
then passed providing that the com
mlttec appointed should make a can
vass among tho pioperty owners along
Kort street between Queen nnd Ileie

street paving nnd cleaning. Tho com

him from San Francisco and he stated
that some action should be taken to
