it referred to discrimination by Coun

$11,000 be appropriated for the benefit
of t wo f-treets and nothing allowed for

improvements? Is Main Street the
only street ontitlcd to the morey paid
by the property ownors in tho Incor
pora'e limits? Has not more money
already been expended on Ma'n and
Souih Harpar Streets than on any four
other streets combined? Are the peo
ple In Ward 2 expected to pay taxes
solely for tho boneflt of Main, or any
other single street? We are pleased
to know that Major Watts and Billy
Washington wero against thi? move,
but they were up against a hard pro
posit'on when we remember that three
Aldermen livo on Main Street and the
