Council Plans For the Im
provements. REPORT OF THE MAYOR
Scores a Big Hit With
The Marion and Suburban Road Ac.
cepts the the Franchise Granted
lor several Extensions.
Tho city council did only business of
minor Importance, ut a regular meet
ing held Monday evening. All mem
bers Viero In attendance. The only
matter which caino to lelelve the ted
ium of routine huslnes was u pro
posed sidewalk improvement wWeh
Councilman John V. Wilson Int.o-
duced. A bit of reparteo between
Couucllman J. G. Setter and Mr.
Wilson, resulted and lor a time It
looked as though a question similar
to tho old South Prospect street de
bato would bo raised. However, it
proved Jlnnlly that Dr. Seller had
been jolting moro than anything else
and when It came io voting on the
Improvement, ho voted "yes" with th
rest of tho councllmen.
Mr Wilson nuked tho council to
order a sldowlak laid on Oak street
through the Lincoln Park addition,
wlikh lu to he placed on tho market
by himself and his partner, W. T.
.lones Tho petition was granted hut
when it came to taking n final voto
on the resolution authorizing tho
Improvement, Dr. Selter objected.
"I don't think it is light for coun
cil to order sidewalks down in all
these new real estate additions," said
the doctor "It looks to me as
though it Is Imposing a burden and
an Imposition on people who buy
lots In theso additions. They buy
tho lots supposing that tho sidewalks
havo been paid for and when they
find out differently, they are unable
to pay for the improvements. I
say, let tho real estate dealers pay
for tho walks themselves."
"The doctor is merely having an
other of his pipe dreams," Mr.
Wilson nnnounced. "I suggest that
wo proceed with tho ouslness."
After a short wait for Councilman
Phillips to return from another part
of the offices, Mr. Wilson inado an
"So tar ns our addition is con
ceited." said Wilson, "wo hnvo no
Intention or deceiving tho people. If
tho walks are not paid for, tho per
son buying tho walk will know It.
We don't do huslnes by deceiving
people. Possibly tho doctor does."
When the roll for tho adoption of
tho resolution wns called. Dr. Selter
hesitated a moment and voted "yes."
Everyone laughed and generally re
garded It ns a Joke on tho doctor's
Tho resolution yrovlded for tho fol
lowing stono walks: On tho west
side of North Main street In front of
lots No. 101 and 102. south side of
Darius street from Henry street to
Davids stroet, north side of Darius
street from Uncnpher nvenuo to the
Boulovard, and both sides of Mary
street from tho south line of tho Lin
coln park addition to tho Garden
City plko, south side of tho darden
City pike from Oak street to Mary
street, and the west gldo or Oak
street rrom the Garden City Pike to
tho north lino of lot No. 8424.
Previous t tho adoption of this
resolution, an ordinance had been
ndopted accepting William T. .Tonea
and John V. Wilson's Lincoln Park
nddltlon, consisting of 25 lots on Oak
Street, Just south of thoi park. Tho
addition will ho placed on tho mar
