AS TO' WIDENING STREETS.
Thompson Street ShoulI be Mad
Making Progress Mowly.
In rgird to widen-ing the streets,
it seems that not much progress ia,
been made. There is one street to
wlhieli The I-erald and News desires
to call a(tention and that is Thomp
soin street. Mr. Sonnen'borg and Mr.
J. (1. ivown, who are building onl
tie east side of this street, have set
back about six feet. On the other
sida it was understood from the synd
icate which -hod bought the old laun
dry lot, that it would be set 'back, but
the corner has been purchased by Mr.
W)hittliker and Mrs. Schumpert. and
the foundation is being made for a
building. It seems from the founda
tion that is laid off that these parties
have set back oil the Pratt s reet
corner but on the rear end of' their
lot they hiave not set back. - it wonld
he a great pity for this building to
,no up with the rear corner of it pro
jecting in the street, an.d if it is pos
sible for city council or any one else
to get Mr. Whittaker and Mrs.
Schumpert to straighten their line
on the Thonpson street side, now is
the time to do it. This street itnning
inl rear of the iew court house, it is
very important that it should be wid
ened if it is Ilossible tt) have it done.
Alderman Baxter made another snig
xestion -,Is, Io this street. whicli should
Ihave at en i ion. and that is t0ha wh1ere

OLrAMING UP WBEK.
A Good Suggesction From a Member
of Civic ABsooation-Referred to
Mayor Brown and Council.
Through the influence of the Amer
ican Civic Association a great many
cities in the United States have a re
gular spring eleaning on a (ay set
by the mayor, when streets, alleys,
back yards, and silewalks are clean
ed, together with anyoother thing of
the kind that needs it. Denver, a
few years ago, at the' call of Mayor
Sheer, thoroughly cleaned all its
downtown, streets and alloys, painted
all poles used in its fire and police
systems, placed new and improved
refuse canls at street crossings, and
private .citlzens looked aftier their
owni property and neighborhool to
the great improvement in licalth ord
orliness and taste. Mayor Dunne of
Chicago selected May 7, atid called up
oil aill householders to gather ill) tin
calns aII other Iub)isl to be a-kenl
upl) by garbage collectors; school clil
drenl were enlisted in the work; house
holders. were reminded of the city re
gulations concerning the disposal of
waste. Grand Rapi(ls, Kalamazoo,
New Orleans, and many other cities
have followed the example of Chica
qVo anld Denver.
In our onw state the Moyar of
Anfdersoin at the request of the
Civie Association of that town set the
first week il Alay for clealin.g up

The Civic Association Wonts to olp
the City and Asks Cooperation
The Civic Association have askbd
city Couteil to do three things, all
tilhreo of which should bo done.
First, that the opera house on the
i.tisiido be ealeinkined and repainted
before commenement. Any one who
has been in t opera house recently
will -at once apprecia,te the impor
tane of this suggestion.
-Second', to provid-e -by ordinance
tilhat certain days be set apa'rt for
.the garbage carts to collect garbage
in each ward, aid that the residolts
of the wards be required to place
trash a.nd garbage fron their promis
es in a box or barrel conveniently on
the side walk or street, so that it
might be gathered up by the carts.
With the present earl, facilities it
will be impossible for the carts to go
overl eachl0 yard eae-y day, as there
are some twenty-eight, miles of streets
in the city, but by having certain
days for each ward, It would be a
very easy matter for the residents
of the wards to have their trash bask
ets conveiiently set. for the carts on
the days set apart for those wards.
Third, that. Civic Association asks
for f'le first week -in Junte to be set
apart by the ma1.1yor to be kiowi as
cleatniig. up week for -the city. Any
one who will keep 4iis eyes open and
look onl our streets any day and any
lime of tile daY will see the inecessity
not only for a cleainl'g up1) week, bit.
for eleail in. iul weeks. I' tlis 1 we6re
