The committee devoted two tioun 'o
a thorough discussion of the problem
and ? ailed into consultation a number
of Soilthsids business men. as well as
City Fngincer Hulling, to assist in
arriving al a solution. Mr. Holling
submitted several tentative plans for
widening Fourteen! h Street from the
1.ridge to Mum Street, and the utiliza?
tion of \ lrgirna Street to take care of a
part of the traft flic
No SOttofl wa> taken in the war of
recommending any one plan. The com?
mittee agreed that it would l>e wise to
await the. report of the Council sub
commit tea on streets, which has been
appt.cd to make an investigation of
tfee bridge approaeh problem, before
committing the chamber to any comas
of action, rpun motion of Henry W.
Anderson, the committee adopted a
resolution stressing the urgency of the
?dt nut ion and asking for an early action
un the part of the Council.
To Open I-ort>-Foot Street.
City Pnglnciar Hulling told the com
nittSS that by far the best solution
would be to widen Fourteenth Street
bei ween 1 lie bridge and Main Street to
sltsty feet the same width as the
bridge itself. Such u plan would meet
with little difficulty, he said, as re?
gards Koarteoath frnsn 'he bridge to
< ary. but would entail expensive con?
demnation prot-cctJiriB-i wli.-n the widen?
ing of the streel was tarried forward
from ? 'fi y to Main
The engineer suggested a? an alter
natirc plan, tha acquiring.either by pur?
chase or condemnation, of a strip of
property on the taslnin side pt tour
teeatb Street, between Main and Cary.
?o be aaed as an arends walkway, per?
mitting 'lie roadwav te ? oni? up to what
is now the property line. Such a plan
would not interfere with the upper
stotie? ,,c the buildings now in the
eastern side of 1 h" st roet.
To supplemein the arcade walkway
on the eastern side of Fourteen Street.
Mr. Moiimif slugrolnlIhanonsliim Ihm]
Ol ,,n elevated sidewalk on the opposite 1
side of the street directly over the,
present sidewalk, and the t onvertmg
of the preeeat sidewalk space into road?
Those two plans. BSJt into effect to
gather, he .-aid. would give the desirod
forty-foot roadway for a double track
oar line, and at the same time would
avoid in large part the heavy expense
which would follow the widening of
the street outright by condemnation
of proper-y on the western side of
laiors Open Square.
' Mairman .fohn C. F.asley, of the
? Bam bar's streets, roasts and parks
OaasSalttOS, favored a sixty-foot street,
to Cary. and the condemnation of all
the porpertv on tbe western side of
Fourteenth Street from l ary to Mam.
as well as the obstructing property on
Main Street, to be turned into a large
? ?pen SSjaaiS The plan would be more
<Apensive. he agreed, but would be
a permanent solution and cheaper in

be offered 1o the project to elevate the
grade Of all brttsas approaches above
the highest icorded Hood level. Bsjeh
? -project, he said, would involve prac?
tical:.- the rebuilding of the Southern
Hallway yards, and could never be put

It was a matter of some comment at
the lime that the old Committee on
Light seldom, if ever, had more than
one bid for the tar. but such was the
lealousy between the vaii-ms city de?
partments that no serious efforts were
made at the i las Works to aid in the
improvement of the streets, und the
suggestion was allowed to go by.
Now that the Administrative Board
has supervision of both departmente.
it is proposed to revive the matter,
investigate it thoroughly and de?
