Our company, under tho franchise irranted
by this honorablo body, claim that thor aro

comploto circuit or tho city, and from thuo to
tluift havo so continued tnolr work that In
operating their San Pedro lino into tho Military
plaza It waa In conformity with these, plan and
with tho Intontlon ot nnlshlng tho circuit on
tho other (or west) side or tho springs, wh-n
tho tracl would Justify tho eipoi c ot tho ad
dltlon. In nil cltlea uufortunuto enough to
have narrow street it has been granted to rail
ways to go down ono street und return on
another parallel and adjacent. Wo aro now at
that point whero tho publlo aro cslllnu- nu us
for Increased facilities. Should wo meet this
demand by a doublo track on San Pedro avo
nuo and Accqula street wo would occupy so
much or those streets as to tuako thorn almost
impassible for other travel. Tlicreforo. when
wo wero made awaro or tho wants or tho pro
orty owners on North Flora street, we wero
willing to coin pit, and at onco niado tho neces
Hiry contracta for material tn construct the
lino, ami thus aolvo tho problem tor Increased
racllltlca without Impairing tho strccta named,
understand our position, and at tho samo thuo
wo desire to conrorm our actions to your ex
pressed desires vis: to obtain tho consent ot
tho majority of property ownera along tho pro
ponod line. Out of duo respect to your hnaor
ablebody, wo havo handed la a jictltlon. not
only expressing tho desires of tho larger body
Wo aro anxious fur an carlv answer to our
petllion, for should you see lit to d-ny this
right thla company should bu Hindu awaro ot
your decision at once. In order berurutbo
work on San Pedro avenue Is completed they
may doublo their track there, it they uro com
pelled to do so.
Having niado a plain statement or our posi

samo may at nnco bo proceeded with,

Alderman Lockwood moved that tho right
or way bo granted on Noith Florca street.
Alderman Schrelner objected, saying It would
ruin thu street, and effect the Interest or
property owners Alderman Story regarded
tho question as u serious one, and bollovcd tho
robldents would get an Injunction to prevent
tho work oven if tho Council gave tho permit.
Tho publlo would bo wronged and bo hopod
tho Council would not allow such wrong to bo
owners gavo their assent. He asked that tho
matter bo retorred to the commlttco already
having Jho matter in hand and this waa done.
uso thu squaro was read, on which Alderman
llallugher supported tho petition. Alderman
liockwood thought that pcoplo should bo en
couraged to build flno houses by giving them
facilities to do It. Mayor French said several
persons had spoken of Major Kampiuann'a at
tempt to steal the plaza. It was ridiculous.
Alderman Dwycr said when ho moved the
grunting of the resolution ho had no Idea It
would be tenced In. Alderman Degeucr moved
that tho fence bo removed, but the motion was
then In order and the
rcportod that tho damairo suit of Prince
Warner versus tho city bad rosulted
In tholr favor, and ml i now icqulredto

It was not ncccuary yd, and that a sidewalk

rr Alderman Schrelner, reported that tho
llteh Commissioner's accounts had been ex

Degener wanted to know what means could
bo taken to Irrigate Travis park. Tho Major
suggested that a tiro hydrant ta creeled In tho
eeutroortho park, but as thoro wero somo
doubtaaa to whother tho tiro hydrant could bo
usrd for Irrigation puriHg-c, tho matter waa
referred to tho (las and Water commltteo for
further report. Alderman Story hero asked
why tho mains ordered lor tho Second ward
had not lioon laid? When it was explained that
tho delay had occurred, owing to tho Inability
of tho waterworks company to securo piping,
but It would arrlvu shortly und work would go
I int. COMMITTEE,
ward bo reerred to the llro directors, and It
was so ordered They also reiwrted favorably
on several applications for Iron ctads, which
recommendations wero all granted, except in
to rennrton the Asphaltum rooting ouestloii.
Alderman Pauly wauled to know by what
authority Mr. Tynan was erecting an ugly
barn and stabto on (lollad street, ilosald that
It was Impolitic, unfair to tho cltlrcns who
erected good houses, depreciated property and
bad no authority for erecting the stable, and
had been arrested for so doing. Hohad agreed
to glvo partof his property for a sidewalk, and
said that Tynun had been dlm-bargcd by tho
ltocordorou production or n building permit,
tint it turned out that I lie so called Iwrmlt was
blmply an application for one.
UAS AMI WATKIIL'IIMMITTIE,
per Alderman lockwood, rcortcdi First, that
tho right of way asked lor by tho Prospect
Second, that tho right o
ttio Sun Antonio Street
iiAii.mmi ruoM noiitii ki.oiikbtiiict
to Iho San Pedro springs. Petitions ror and
against tho action wero handed Inst thu samo
time. i:ighty-aocn signatures weru uttachod
to iho petition for tho rlght-or-way and 111
against It. Two members of tho coininitteo.
Aldermen Inckwood und liwjer, signed tho
report. This was tho signal for Indignation and
oratory on tho part of opposing Aldermen.
Alderman Schrelner was Indignant. Ilo sal. 1
ttiat thu signatures had been obtained, and add
ed slncu the laitltlon went to tho commltteo
and that If allowed llmo he could hatcgottcn
n "'ajorlty against the project. Ilo presented
another uport that tho rlllht-or-way be not
granted, which was signed by Alderman
lllchler. Two against two. Alderman Ilwyer
said that he snpportcd tho rlght-or-way being
granted because tho majority wanted it, und
tho majority must rule. Alderman llelknap
made a poiaonal statement, explaining his po
sition and stating that ho hud uuver solicited a
signature. Thu .Mayor explained that Mr.
Frasch'sllst gavothopropfityuwnoraonlr to
the fan Fodrocreok. Therowereothcrownera
beyond that who had a right to bu consulted.
Tho opposition denied that beyond that lioliit
was North Florcs street. Alderman Story rose
solemnly and settled down for a speech. Ilo
though tho opposition had a good iiOBltlon tho
street rallroud had apparently gone out Into
tho brush tn get their majority. Ilo thought
tho financial Interest of tho opponents of tho
scheiuo would bo SUM to $iu. The majority
must rule, but tho question Is, Is It to bo a
majority In numbers or a majority in dollars
and conta. It thla wus granted thu property
owners would sutrer, business would bo de
stroyed, und owing to tho narrowness or tho
streets accidents must occur. It would no
doubt bo an advantage to Kioto who Iho In
tho suburbs, but bu waa not prepared to boost
tiem up at tho expense or tha city. Mr. llelk
nap has gono out In Iho chaparral for signa
tures to support bis road.
Alderman llelknap I bavo already stated to
all thcao gontleman that 1 havo not aollcltcd a
xnis inicrrupiiun cue ou . merman story's
tho right of way. Alderman Uwyer contrasted
SanPodro avenuo before tho stroet railway
waa run and now, attributing Its property to
tbo racllltlea which tho street railroad ottered,
and said It bad brought thousands or dollars
and cents to tho city, Tho people out I" the
chapariol had rights, yet tho opponents cf tho
street car refusod to allow It tu pass their door
In order that tho city In that part might to ex
tended and Improved, Wo nopo to seo as much
In that direction as had taken place on tbo San
Poilro springs lino. Alderman Story said ho
hadadvocutcd tho San Podro lino becauso It
had merits, but theru waa no analogy between
tno two lines Alderman lockwood thought
tho peoplo In tho chaparral paid taxes and had
tbo eaiio right to bo consldorud as thoso of thu
city. Thcro wora narrow points an North
Florca street, but not narrower than Solodad
street. Alderman Schrelner objected still, say
ing that many or tho prop -rty owners who
signed tho favorable petition did not rcsldo on
tho street and did not know or consider bow It
would Impcdotratuonnd tho evil to business.
Aldorman (lallagher moved that a special com
mittee boapiHilmed by tho Mayor to ascertain
the financial and nuiucrlal strength or thoso
for and against thu project. Tho Mayor said
ho would not llko to Inipoau such trouble on
thoAldormen. Alderman Lockwood proiKisod
to amend tho resolution, that tho City Clerk
onmparo tho signatures with tho Asacauor'a roll
and furnish thu required lurorinallon. Alder
man Ilolton proposed to assess tho rights by
frontage us In estimating tho cost of streets
and sidewalks. Alderman Story said that
wouldn't work worth a cent. Soma land on
tho road waa wortV, Jltw, to other parts at t2.
'Jho Mayori Tho major! y tuuit rulo
fairly, wo can not oonccdo raoro
tn tha rich than tho poor. Alderman
Story thought It was a question who was
moa damaged. Tho Mayor: "No, tho majority
of property owners on tho route chosen must
rulo accordlnr to tho ordinance." Ultimately
It waa resolved that tho City Clerk compare,
tho list or thoao signing both ctltlons with tho
aMfsuint rolls and retHirt result at Iho next
