Refusal of Council to Respond to
Need for Improvement in
ENDS COMMISSIONER'S SERVICE
Bid of $2,233 Considered Too Large
an Expenditure for a New
The refusal of the city council at
its meeting last evening to order the
building of a new pavilion in Spencer
square in accordance with the specifi
cations heretofore described resulted
in the resignation as park confmia
sioner of Hon. William Jackson. Three
bids were received in response to the
advertisement of the city clerk. Hut
two were con-idcred. those of C. .1.
barkin. $2,253, and Emil Peterson, $2.
625, Henry Tappendorf having failed
ti emdo.se a check, as required in the
It was manifest that there had been
lobbying before hand against the erec
tion f the pavilii n. for when the bids
had been read the batteries ,,f the op
position were opened under the lead
ership of ALL I.. V. Eckhait. who
thoughl that $2,253, the figure in the
lowest bid. was too much money to
le expended on what lie termed mere
ly an ornament. If the city had any
.surplus funds on hand lie knew of no
better place to employ them than in
the western end of the city, ill the
fmg pond districts', am! where the
people were Buffered to wade ankle
deep in mud for (rant of proper side
walks in wet weather, or in Longview
Aid. .1. I. Sexton replied that Spen
cer -quare was the key to the city. Il
was the only public beauty spot. It
was tin- fir.-t thing that attracted at
tention of the stranger, and was
known over the country as one of the
handsomest public parks in the coun
try. From private sources there hail
been donated for its adornment $7,500.
It had never been a financial burden
to the city, but now that the time
had arrived when the council was ex
pected to loosen its purse Strings,
nothing shoddy or cheap should be
permitted. Either the pavilion pro
posed should he in keeping with the
surroundings or the present structure
should in- allowed to remain undis
turbed, AM. I". E. Bobbins, who mov

Mr. I.arkin, was in accord with the
sentiments expressed by Aid. Sex

Hon. William Jackson, who was
identified with the inception of the
movement to improve Spencer square,
and since has constantly devoted him
self to maintaining the standard of
beauty there, addressed the council.
He told or the interest he fell in the
park aside fr m that of commission
er. It was a spot that was known
throughout the northwest. Only the
other da.v a traveler from London told
him that he had not seen a public
square to compare with it. The pn
vilion now standing in the square was
a quarter centurj old. It was col
lapsing from age. He protested
against tin- council having erected
anything inferior. It must be tin
best. The taxpayers would not toler
ate anything else. They did not care
if it did cost a few thousand dollars.
They wanted Spencer square to be
continued to be known as the beauty
spot of their city. On an aye and nay
vote Aid. Bobbins' motion was lost 7
to 6. Mr. Jackson shortly after the
vote had been announced banded to
tin1 clerk his written resignation,
stating that he intended being away
From the eitj the greater portion of
the summer and would not lie able to
give to the square the attention it
should have from the commissioner.
It was accepted.

council stated there was altogether
too much work for glory in connec

continue to serve in that capacity he
would expect an annual compensation
of at least $450.
