THE MAYOR'S VETO.
The City Executive's Objection to
Alteagtb? Bevlew of the Snnjertef
Pavlnc, th 31 aterlals I'aed and Coat
of the Vane.
tteutlemen of th City Council :
An ordinance passed by your bonora
ble body, March 18, 1889, entitled "an
ordinance for tbe improvement of Second
avenue from tbe east line of Twentieth
street west to the west line of Fourteenth
street, and for levying a special tax there
for," does not command my approval
and la returned with the following ob
Tbe ordinance was introduced without
previous preliminary notice and passed
without tbe customary reference to a
committee. Nevertheless, it may be
fairly Inferred tbat no alderman was taken
wholly by surprise, inasmuch as the es
sential parts of the ordinance bad been
informally brought to the notice of the
council at a prior meeting. Tbo subject
matter bad also been previously publicly
discussed for a considerable length of
time by property holders and citizens
directly interested. Not so much there
fore, from tbe fact tbat an ordinance was
passed, as from tbe character of its
provisions, do doubts arise whether or
not it received tbat careful and deliberate
attention wbich is due to tbe character
and Importance of tbe proposed improve
The authority vested in your honora
ble body to pass such an ordinance is un
questioned. The possession of statutory
authority, however, may be ample in a
given case and jot tbe exercise of such
authority may be politic or impolitic ac
cording to circumstances. It appears to
me tbat in making ordinary local im
provements the course of established pre
cedents may be safely followed as a cen
eral rule, while in entering upon new and
special improvements such as in this city
street paving would be, and wbich is in
tended as the outline and commencement
of a future growth of special improve
ments, it would be proper and politic to
first ascertain tbe need and then mainly
to be aroverened by tbe expressed wish of
tbe majority of tax payers affected there
by. In this particular instance such in
formation as came before the council in
dicated a willingness on the part of a
respectable number of Second avenue
property holders to have tbe council pro
vide for paving tbe street, but whether
with granite or with some other material
was not clearly manifest. Whatever
doubts may have existed at the time the
council was deliberating upon the ordin
ance In regard to choice of material, the
subsequent action of property holders
directly Interested, in memorializing the
mayor to interpose bis veto, leaves no
doubt in my mind tbat a large majority
of owners representing much tbe largest
proportion of frontage held by tax payers
are decidedly averse to paving with
sranite. Whether tbe same persons, the
same number of owners, would be op
posed to any paving whatever within the
proposed limits on Second avenue has
not yet in any decisive or intelligent
manner been made known.
The present ordinance explicitly pro
vides for making tbe pavement with
granite and for obtaining the larger part
or the moneys to do tbe work by a special
tax to be imposed upon the adjoining
property, wbich tax would be additional
to the general taxes paid in common by
all tax payers of tbe city, such being
the case it seems only just and equitable
tbat the council should give due weight
to the wishes of those who would bo
specially burdened with the extra tax,
and that they should afford them reason
able opportunity to make known the
character and extent of the improve
ments they might desire and tbe amount
of extra cost they would be willing to as
sume. Such a course would be prudent
and would strengthen tbe efforts of the
council in enforcing the ordinance. It
would he an index to tbe sentiments of
the parties most deeply and directly in
terested. If the proposed improvement
was generally held in favorable estima
tion it could be adopted without fear of
obstructive measures, and it there was a
pronounced opposition not directly in
conflict with public necessity and tbe best
interests of tbe city such proposed special
Improvements might with propriety be
leu in abeyance until their necessity be
came more imperative and their utility
A retrospect of twenty years - would
show numerous enterprises undertaken
here in the city which at tbe outset
promised substantial bercflts, but which
failed to realize the hopes that were en
tertained, and so, tbe theory of increas'
ing property valuations by paving of
streets, long in advance of the require'
menu of an ordinary thoroughfare, is in
my opinion decidedly more illusory than
substantial and prudent. It has been re
presented to me that there are
several instances of property holdings
embraced in tbe present proposed Im
provement where tbe extra cost of pav
ing with granite, tbe expense of building
brick sidewalks already ordered within
tbe same limits, together with ordinary
taxes, insurance, water rates, and annual
repairs would bo a larger sum than the
amount of two years annual rental of tbe
property. If this statement be true.it
would be a very novel and refreshing
mode of increasing a citizen s wealth by
making the tax on his property greater
than his reyenue.
Daring tbe past two years It has been
the steady policy of tbe administration
to pay tbe accruing interest and to annu
ally pay some portion of the principal of
the city debt, to continue the construc
tion and development of a system of un
dergronnd sewage, to provide against in
undation from tbe river, and to improve
the principal thoroughfares of heavy
traffic in the city leading towards the
center of business in such a manner as
the funds appropriated for the purpose
wouia permit, to this end very consld
erable sums have been expended upon
the JUilan roadway and Junth street, and
Uon Fifth avenue and Elm street. A
continuation of tbe same policy would
embrace filling and raising to grade
Twelfth street, wbich leads to the city
cemeteries. Fifteenth, Sixteenth, Seven
teenth, Eighteenth, Nineteenth and
Twentieth streets, and also Third,
Fonrtb, Fifth and Sixth avenues within
the same territory. By a comparatively
inexpensive system of tram railway and
cars the material for grading up streets
and sidewalks could be brought from the
bluffs at a moderate cost, and when the
work was accomplished there would be
an extended area in and adjoining tbe
principal business center where tbe
streets would be at grade, the sidewalks
filled, and everything suitably prepared
for paving or other systems of permanent
improvement Thereafter with increase
of dwellings, growth of business, and the
visible benefits which would result from
these improvements, the area of graded
streeU would gradually enlarge until all
parts of the city would be brought sub
stantially above high water mark. With
streets thus filled np and property freed
fmm the dangers of overflow from the
river, property holders would realize the
RMirltv and the value oi property in
vestments for habitations and business
places, and would more fully appreciate
tbe advantages of a systematic expendi
ture at nnblio funds and special taxation
lor purposes of special or permanent im
In ordering and directing tbe course of
municipal improvements it is entirely
competent for your honorable body to
determine at all times whether they shall
be made from the general fund, or by
special assess meat, special taxation, or in
part by either mode. But it is certainly
wise and judicious that your determina
tion of the mode in any case should be
essentially governed by thoughtful con
sideration for tbe present and future wel
fare of the city, a full understanding of
the necessities and requirements of the
public thoroughfares, and in cases of
special assessment or special taxation by
due regard for the rights and wishes of
those who are to be specially assessed or
taxed therefor. It requires Intelligent
and sound discretion to decide whether
at present any paving of streets should be
undertaken, and if ordered, whether to
be of granite, brick or wood; or whether
the Telford system of macadam may not
be less expensive, sufficiently serviceable,
and on many accounts preferable far
general use. If any paving at all should
be determined upon, my peisonal infor
mation and judgment incline me to the
belief, that, all things considered, a pave
ment of cypress blocks resting upon a
solidly prepared and enduring substratum
would be the best that could be adopted
for the heavily traveled thoroughfares of
the city, and for all other streets needing
solid, compact surface, that the Telford
or some equivalent system of macadam
would be sufficiently lasting, economical
consideration duration, and would an
swer all purposes of ordinary travel and
traffic for many years when properly con
structed. In regard to tbe proposed improve
ment of Second avenue, there is no gen
erally recognized imperious necessity for
the use of granite. By far the greater
amount of heavy traffic comes into the
city over the Milan roadway and Ninth
street, and is distributed in various direc
tions at or before it reaches Third ave
nne; or, comes from tbe east over Fifth
avenue and is rapidly distributed at and
westward of Twenty -fourth street. Or
dinarily tbe occasion for resorting to
pavements is because tbe traffic upon the
street rapidly renders it to a condition of
bad repair, and tbe frequency of this
condition and the constant expense for
repairs demand a more durable construc
tion and greater solidity of surface. These
conditions might perhaps apply to Fifth
avenue east of Twentieth street or to
Milan roadway south of Third avenue,
but are scarcely applicable, as yet, to the
ordinary condition of Second avenue.
Concede that It might facilitate the trans
acting of business, and that to some ex
tent property holders on Second avenue
have expressed a desire for some kind of
pavement and have signified a willing
ness to bear the burden of apecial tax
ation to get it. Its advocates apparently
appear .to rely more upon a prospective
increase in the values of abutting prop
erty and incidental facilities for larger
local trade to compensate their outlay
than upon any pressing necessities of a
general and public nature. Tbe citltens
of the city in general bave no special in
terest in paving Second avenue more than
in paving any other street, except that
tbe proposed limit constitutes the most
solidly built portion of the heaviest busi
ness street in the city, and the property
thus closely centered pays a corresponds
ing amount of municipal taxes. If it
has become necessary to commence pav
ing tbe city, it is not unreasonable to
presume that public sentiment would re
gard this locality as the proper initial
place to make the commencement.
The most weighty objection to gran-
He, where it is not an absolute necessity,
Is its great cost compared with other ma
terial equally servicable for all ordinary
travel and traffic. While the abutting
property holders under special taxation
bear the greater burden, tbe taxpayers at
large contribute no inconsiderable share.
The comparison is one of simple mathe
matical calculation and easily made.
Having tbe distance and width of street
given the number of square yards is
readily ascertained. Tbe number of
square yards multiplied by tbe cost per
yard gives the sum total. The cost per
square yard in this city may be estimated
upon genera information for brick in
place at 91.30 to El 40; for cypress at
$1 .40 to f 1.50; and (rranite variously at
83.00, $8.60 to $4 00 or 50. Curb
ing is the same in either case and may be
estimated at 80 to 70 cents per lineal
foot. The plumbing required by ordi
nance would be a connection with tbe
water main at every twenty feet and is
calculated at $80.00 each attachment or
about $900.00 per block. The city's
part consists of the number of square
yards contained in the street intersec
tions, its proportion adjoining 8pencer
and Market squares, and probably the
proportion adjacent to chnrch property.
Taking the very lowest estimate per
square yard ventured to be named for
granite, and the amount which tbe city
would have to pay, absolutely and with
out repayment from any source, would
be approximately $12,000 or $13,000.
The city will also have to advance at the
beginning, in most cases, tbe coat of fur
nishing tbe curbing, doing the plumbing,
and constructing the brick sidewalks now
ordered within the fire limits, making the
amount wbich tbe city would have to
pay absolutely and tbat which it would
have to advance and await repayment
from special taxation and collection, in
all. the sum of $80,000 to $25,000. This
would be an expenditure within a limit of
six or seven blocks, on one street alone,
of a considerable larger sum than was
ever appropriated in this city in any one
year for street and alley purposes, and
would not leave a dollar to be expended
during the coming year upon a single
one of the city's other fifty miles, less or
more, of streets and alleys. The city
would necessarily have to do this much
on its part, even if property holders were
generally consenting and special taxa
tion was cheerfully met and paid. It Is
respectfully submitted that the city
ought not to be placed in this situation,
elthei purposely or by indirection; and
it is further submitted, tbat if paving is
desirable and to be determined upon,
then brick or wood are the only material
which the city, financially, can safely
undertake to use.
In common with a very large and re
spectable number of fellow citizens, the
mayor's sympathies and approval have
been actively enll'ted in behalf of pub
lic improvements and in favor of tbe
council doing all that a judicious expen
diture of public funds could effect to
promote the growth of the city and the
prosperity of its inhabitants; but the or
dinance passed by your honorable body,
providing for paving with granite, is so
widely at variance with my views on tbat
subject, tbat my official concurrence in
your enactment is necessarily withheld.

For a good spring medicine we confidently
recommend Hood's Sarsaparilla. By its use
the blood Is purified, enriched and vitalized,
tbat tired feeling is entirely overcome and
the whole body given strength and vigor.
The appetite Is restored and sharpened, the
digestive organs are toned, the kidneys and
liver invigorated. If you have never tried
do so this season. It Is a thoroughly honest
and reliable preparation, purely vegetable,
and contains no injurious ingredients what
ever. Thousands who have taken It with
benefit testify to its peculiar curative power.
"I take Hood's Sarsaparilla as a spring
tonle, and I recommend it to all who bave
that miserable tired feeling." C. Parmkleb,
849 Bridge Street, Brooklyn, N. Y.
N. B. ir yon decide to take llood's Rorsopsrilla,
do not be lndnoed to buy any other preparation.
Hood's Sarsaparilla Is prepared from Sarsa
parilla, Dandelion, Mandrake, Dock, Juniper
Berries, and other well known vegetable
remedies, by a combination, proportion and
process peculiar to itself, and by which the
full medicinal value of all tbe Ingredients
used Is secured. Hence it possesses superior
and positive curative power.
" Every spring for years I have made it a
practice to take from three to five bottles of
Hood's Sarsaparilla, because I know it purifies
the blood and thoroughly cleanses the system
of all Impurities. That languid feeling, called
'spring fever,' will never visit the system that
has been properly cared for by this never
failing remedy." W. H. Lawrence, Editor
