If Asheville is not going to get wol'ully
left on its street paving contract then the
pinions of some of the best men in the
city go for naught. Since the brick have
been piled along South Mam street they
have Iki-ii examined bv a nuiuhcrol ieo
plcanilthe majority are of the opinion
that they will not stand heavy traffic.
Captain Natt Atkinson is one of these.
'I am not a brick inun," he said this
morning," mil il docs seem io me tiiai
the brick arc not strong enough to lie
used for paving purposes. I looked at
thcin the other day and brought one to

consider this as disastrous to the success

Captain Patton does not favor the
hanging of the grade on Mam street.
I think it most unwise, he said
Our effort for many years has Ikcii to
secure its light a grade as possible. Il is
most important at this point, which is
most crowded with trallic. Now all the
