Taxpayers Along Kansas Avenue Speak as One Man. REPAIR THE ASPHALT p OKE la What They Sny, tnd Slot a Mjin of Thtm i for BrteU. The largest taxpayers and business men of Topeka, having the best interests of the city at heart want the asphalt re paired, and that without delay. They speak through the Journal today in a Voicetvhich cannot well be disregarded. A Jocrsal reporter talked to about fifty taxpayers about the asphalt proposi tion, and only two men In that number were found who were opposed to making the repairs in the asphalt pavement. One of thee was a brick manufacturer and the other a pessimist with a disordered liver. With these two exceptions the unanimous verdict was: Repair the pavement. Repair without delay. Repair with asphaltum. Among the opinions gathered on this subject by the JotrftXAt. man, were? O. G. Sage "The asphalt is the finest pavement in the world and it should be repaired by all means. With a very lit tie expense the pavement we have ought to be good for tea years more. More than half of it is as good as the day it was put down. I own seven lots on Kan sas avenue and I have paid f 8,000 for my share of this asphalt, and I do not propose to see brick substituted, or the asphalt patched with brick. Talk to that fleet is a 'brick scheme' that should not be tolerated." Mr. Sae took the repor ter to the center of Kansas avenue and pointed out that about the only place the asphalt needed repairs was within the fifteen feet on either side of the car tracks, where the bulk of the heavy traffia r aised. W. f. Crosby "We want asphalt first, last and all the time, and I am zlad the JotmxAi. la agitating the subject. I have paia out considerable money in pave ment taxes, but I don't begrudge a cent of It If the aphalt is kept in repair. The streets of lopeka are the pride ot the city and should be kept up. I thought the letter of Mr. Bonebrake on this sub- " Ject hit the nail on the head." - F. E. Holliday "Mr. Swift and myself are interested in seven lota on Kansas avenue, and we want the pavement re paired. What Is more we don't want any delay, and want the work done with the , Very best grade of real asphaltum." . A F. Homer "Sow that we have the asphalt It is the poorest kind of policy not to keep it up." John R. Mulvane "The pavement ahould be repaired by all means, but I think from what I know of the Indian Territory asphalt that it would answer 1 id. tf,ur5 " wel1 ir properly J. Weiss "Ths pavement we now have is too good to abandon." IL K. Rowley Certainly we want it repaired. It would be the worst kind of waste not to do so." . C. W. Jewell '-Our asphalt is too nice and too exjasive a article to allow it SPRING SUITS.

Mr. Bonebrake's letter expressed my views on the BUbject ex actly." H. K. Tert "When the pavement was put down I was opposed to asphalt, but now I think it is the best pavement on earth, and 1 want to see it kept in good repair." E. T. Sim "Asphalt is the most desir able, for all purposes, of any pavement we have, and it is a mistake not to take care of it." C O. Knowles "There is time enough to abandon the pavement when it Is past repairing. Until than we should make the be3t possible use of it. It should be repaired without delay." W. W. Manspeaker "1 want the as phalt repaired. It is the worst kind of policy to let $300,000 rof in the streets." Sam Hindman "I like the asphalt, and it Is too good to let go to waste. It ought to be good for a half a dozen years yet." George Eagle "I detest the brick pavement, and I should say it would be economy to repair the asptialt." I S. Woolverton "We cannot afford to let the pavement go without repair. There is too much invested. I venture the assertion that $2,000 a year would keep Kansas avenue in model condition." D. A Clements "I don't want brick. We ought to repair what we've got" C. P. Bolmar "I don't pay as big taxes as some, but as a citizen who has to preambulate the streets considerably, I should say the pavement ought to be re paired right away, on the theory that a such in time saves nine." I want the as phalt repaired with asphalt, however, and not with brick or calico." John Norton "It seems to me now we have got the asphalt we ought to take care of it. It is too big an investment to do otherwise." M. F. Rlgby "It is too good a pave ment to let wear out. It is the beat on earth as long as we can keep it." A M. Fuller "I should say most em phatically that with the shape the as phalt pavement is now in, it oaght to be repaired at once. A little expense Will make It last half a dozen years yet." W. C. Campbell "The most business like thing to do now is to repair it. The asphalt is the best pavement we have." . J. D. McFarland "I still believe it was a mistake to put the asphalt down in the first place, but now we ought to make it last as long as possible." J. W. F. Huehes "I am partial to as- phalt, and I want it repaired with as phalt." - C. B. Hamilton "There is no doubt of the wisdom of making the repairs right away." A C. Sherman If any of my proper ty was on Kansas avenue I would insist on the repairs being made without any more delay." Furman Baker "The people paid out lots of their good money for our asphalt and it is unjust to them to let it run down in this wav."
