Election on Annexation. By unani

the holding of a special election Jan.
11 to vote on the proposition to annex
to the city of Mcline a tract of ground
amounting to approximately 240 acres
lying between First and Tenth streets
and Nineteenth avenue and what would
be Twenty-seventh avenue extended.
The estimated population is 800 people.
The tract includes the Woodburn,
Nielsen and Greim additions and the
Erlckson, Eklund and Weckel sub
divisions. Riverside Valley for Park. The un
used ground in the valley in Riverslda
cemetery will be devoted by the city
to park purposes if present plans car
ry . An ordinance was adopted by the
council setting aside the tract of ground
between Twenty-seventh and Thirty
fourth streets, except that portion
known as the old cemetery, to be de
voted to park purposes. The park com
mittee, following a conference with
the cemetery board and the city attor
ney, recommended the adoption of the
ordinance. The committee's investiga
tion revealed that the original ceme
tery scheme never provided that this
ground be used for burial purposes.
The restrictions made when the ground
was deeded to the city were that no
portion of the tract could be disposed
of for building purposes. The ordin
ance set forth there are no legal objec
tions to converting the tract in ques
tion into a park. The cemetery board
has announced its willingness to relin
