CURB WAS FAULTY
Council Orders Sixteenth Street
Work Removed and
NOT OF REQUIRED THICKNESS
Grant Petition of Mayer to Build a
Public Natatorium at Foot of
Th. investigation of the curbing
placed on Sixteenth street for the pave
ment between Tenth and Twelfth av
enues by the city council, revealed that
the complaint filed by the property
owners in this particular was well
founded, and as a result the council or
dered the T. J. Peters company to re
move and replace the work that does
not meet the specifications. The de
fective curb is between Tenth and
Eleventh avenues, and for about 2G0
feet the curb on the lower level ranges
between 3-t and 0 inches in depth.
while the specifications require 6 inch
es. On the raised portion of the curb,
where a thickness of 12 inches is re
quired, the thickness ranged between 7
and 12 inches. In other particulars
the work seemed to be up to the stand
ard. The council met at ?, o'clock, and
took a recess to investigate the Six
teenth and Nineteenth street, and the
Fifth avenue improvements. At Six
teenth street the mayor and some of
the aldermen relieved themselves of
their coats, and with picks made a thor
ough examination of the work. On re
turning to the council room, t he alder
men by resolution, ordered the curbing
to be replaced. The intersection at
Nineteenth street and Fifth avenue
was ordered relaid with brick, and a
catch basin installed. No action was
taken in regard to the Nineteenth
street improvement, against which
there has been some protest.

Before reassembling, the aldermen
went to the river bank for the purpose
of examining the location of the nata
torium proposed by Mayor McCaskrin.
The railway employes and those on
the levee, on first seeing the officials,
became alarmed, thinking that the
mayor was about to tear up the tracks
again. Their fears were quickly dis
pelled. The pe tition of the mayor for
permission to erect a public natatori
um west of the west line of Seven
teenth street was granted, the council
reserving the right to order the remov
al of the building should it at any time
interfere with boat traffic. The pro
posed natatorium will be in the shape
of a barge, and is to be completed by
the middle cf September. It will be
built by subscriptions which the
mayor will secure personally. Such an
institution should prove of much pub
