Tho questions ol durability, caro
and economy having been brought
into tho Main street improvement
controversy, tho Journal would sug
gest that brick pavine for tho streets
of a village is rather mora expensive
than is necessary and that other
methods of improving can bo used
which will cost less money and bo of
more practical service.
Brick payemonts unless carefully
washed nnd swept every day, become
very disagreeable on account of the
accumulation of filth which every
passing conveyance will disturb and
and every breeze distribute broadcast
on tho residences and through every
open door and window. Added to
this is the high cost, and the Journal
suggests that tho asphalt macadam
would give our Main street as lino an
improvement ns the village needs.
This method of road building has
been proven as economical, reliable
and durable. It could be oiled once
n year and thus make it dustless; it
would cost much less than brick; it is
easily and cheaply repaired and by
careful attention can be kept con
stantly in perfect condition at a very
trifling expense and when properly
constructed, will have a finer appear
ance, will last longer, and give better
service than a brick pavemeqt.
It is an easy matter for those who
know nothing about this method of
road making, to inform themselves by
viewing somo of the roads thus con
structed. The new road from Wal
bridgo Park to Maumee is a fair saai
ple, and we think it worth while to
consider the difference in price, tho
ease and cheapness of possible repairs
and tho cleanliness of tho street before
deciding on the kind of material used
on Main street.

Hong Kong, China, Mch, 17, '12.
My dear Blue: Woll I haven't
forgotten my promiBo to writo you
while enrouto around the world, oven
though St. Patrick's day finds us
somo ten thousand miles from homo.
Wo arrived in Hong Kong last Fri
day and expected to go on to Canton,
but, as you probably know from press
dispatches, there uqb been rioting and
bloodshed at that place, in fact, tho
streets here were filled with dead and
injured tho first part of this week, so
wo have been obliged to abandon
any idea of going into tho interior of
China which is a source of much re
gret, but of courso for tho best.
Wo have had a most onjoyable trip
so far. The threo weeks voyage
across tho Pacific was broken by a
two day stop at Honolulu where we
were glad to bask in the tropical sun.
The trip from Honolulu to Japan
takes oleven days and ordinarily would
have been yery monotonous but wo
had a very nice party of people
aboard from all over the U. S. and
there was something to do all the
lime either in the way of lectures,
mu icales or something besides cards
and other games.
We spent most of our two weeks in
Japan in Yokohama, Tokio, Kobe and
Nagasaki and also visited several of
tho smaller cities of historical inter
est. We, of course, were a little early
for the cherry blossom season in Jap
an, b'ut did not miss them entirely as
they were coming out when wo were
at Nagasaki, which was our oest stop
Tho Japanese are a very interest
ing nation indeed. They seem so full
of thrift and energy compared with
the Chinese. This is probably be
cause they have been driven to it for
the population of Japan is nearly one
half that of the U. S. and the total
area is about that of California with
but one fifth of the land subject to
cultivation, so you can see that the
strictest economy is necessary, not
only in utilizing every bit of land but
also in harvesting the crops. The
straw is all used in making baskets,
shoes, etc. Very few horses are seen
in Japan. The fields are spaded by
hand instead of being plowed as in
The rickshaw (or jinrickshaw)
drawn by the cooly is the mode of
conveyance and a rather comfortable
way of getting around. These coolies
will draw one all day for ninety cents
in our money and feel well paid as
the average days wages for common
labor in Japan is only fifty cents in
our money. If the American laborer
could see how tho lower class lives
in China and Japan he would feol
very well satisfied with conditions at
home for he really lives better than
the upper class hero in the orient.
In going through the streets hero
yesterday I saw some queer looking
things for sale in the restaurants nnd
an examination found that they were
chicken feet cooked and wrapped in
a slico of bacon. I also understand
that they oven eat tho entrails, so it
does not appear that much of any
thing is thrown away here in China
any more than in Japan.
From Hong Kong we go to Manila
than to Java, Singapore and Calcutta.
From Calcutta we expect to go
through India taking about threo
weeks for the overland trip, then sail
from Bombay through the Red Sea
and Suez canal to Europe landing in
Naples in May thence by rail through
Italy, Germany and France to Eng
land. With best regards, I am

A meeting of citizens was held at
tho council rooms on Thursday even
ing last for tho supposed purpose of
discussing tho methods of paving
Louisiana ave., (or Main street as it is
commonly called), but in roality for
the purpose (as it seemed) of striking
tho first blow to kill improvement of
In tho meeting appeared the same
men who have always opposed village
improvements and it was very plain
to bo seen that if improvement of the
street was to wait until a plan could
bo proposed that would meet with
their approval, Main Btreet paving
would jvait until Gabriel's trumpet
had called somo of our people from
earth to a place where the streets
were already paved and where tho
chronic obstructionist has nothing to
do but play tho anvil chorus on a
Desiring to see the village progress
and take rank with other towns which
have recently been showing signs of
life and progress, and also having in
mind the beautiful' plans as adopted
by many towns that have recently
added a touch of artistic beauty as
well as usefulness to their public im
provements, the Journal had plans
prepared showing how Main stroot
might be improved on the park plan,
and illustrated tho same by two dif
ferent diagrams, which would hayo
given ample room for all traffic and
also add a touch of artistic beauty to
the street. Both of these plans as
proposed by the Journal were doclar
oi by civil engineers to be practical,
strictly up-to-date and in line with
the most progressive towns and cit
ies, and that tho wock would cost less
than a straight brick pavement cov
ering the entire street.
A petition asking for the improve
ment was presented the council and
action on'the matter was taken and is
Almost immediately thereafter the
old time methods of knocking were
started. It was charged by one of
the opponents that the park would
cost $3,000 per year to maintain
which statement is evidence of dense
ignorance or willful falshood on tho
part of tho person making the charge.
It is also stated that the council has
no legal right to make such an im
provement which is another statement
that is not correct and is merely made
to mislead. The Journal is bo thor
oughly in earnest in its desire to havs
the village show a little commendable
enterprise in the way of public im
provement that we are willing to lay
aside our personal preference and ap
prove any good system if it is proven
by honest evidence prepnred by com
petent engineers, that it is better and
cheaper than tho one we have propos
ed, but at present there has been no
such evidence produced, and the in
dications now point to an organized
effort to defeat any good system of
improvement by a movement diguised
us an innocent desire to change the
plan to straight brick pavement.
It's tho old knocker's game tho
Barge old anvil chorus that has been
hammered into eyery effort toward
advancement in Perrysburg for tho
past forty or moro years.
It is true that a few of those who
do not favor the park plan, are per
fectly honest in the matter, and, like
tho Journal, are entitled to their opin
ion, but there is so much evidence
that n few people are merely attempt
ing to defeat any and all plans of im
provement that we feel it a duty to
warn these few against allowing them
selves to be mixed up in an effort
now being made for the purpose sole
ly and only of killing the Main street
