by the m«mb«rs of the board of public

At the last meeting of the board sev

grade certain streets under section 17
were held up, but definite action re
garding the repeal of the section was
The specification In question permits
the Improvement of streets with the
natural soil of the street, with a little
light grade oil added. A great many
of the new subdivisions where the lots
sell at a low price have been so im
proved, ns have many streets laid out
In past years but not graded. The
board believes such streets are not
satisfactory and expressed the opinion
Jhat it would be wise to abolish the
specification and thus get a better
grade of streets.
Specification 16 governs graveled
streets and is considered by the board
a good measure, with the exception of
a few minor points.
Streets Now Poor
The chief objection to this nection Is
that It allows a light gravity oil to be
used in the finishing of the tup of the
street. The members of the board be
lieve that In all Btreet specifications a
heavy oil Bhould be required, the heav
ier the better. The California oil which
Is used ha« an asphaltum base, and
when a liberal quantity of heavy grade
oil is used the resulting pavement is
nearly equal to asphalt.
City Engineer Stafford said: "I am
strongly In favor of abolishing speci
fication 17 entirely and the amending
of specification 16 so that a much
heavier grade of oil will be necessary.
Too many streets are being built un
der specification 17 with the natural
soil. These streets are not satisfactory
in a great many cases and usually do
not wear well, and storm water dam

The board was unanimously of the
opinion that these specifications should
be changed and declared its intention
of bringing the subject before the
council In the near future. Notice of
the change will be Riven In advance,
and it is expected that the proposition
will meet with determined opposition
from some of the real estate Interests
and from the contractors. From ex
pressions on the part of many of the
councllmen It would appear that the
entire council favors such a change in
the street construction law.
