Alvan Mcauley, general manager of
the Packard Motor Car Cos., has writ
ten a letter to the council committee
on grade separation, condemning the
style and construction of the Michi
gan Central railroad bridge over the
Boulevard. He says, “You have al
lowed to be thrown across our beau
tiful Boulevard, a structure that is
without out redeeming feature of at
tractiveness. and you have allowed
she Boulevard to be distorted so that
with the Intersecting street which
cross the Boulevard alongside the new
Boulevard, we will have one of the
most dangerous street Intersections
In the city.”
Mr. Macauley adds that from an
esthetic and practical standpoint, the
bridge Is “a hideous failure, cheap
and ugly, erected, apparently for the
sole purpose of getting enough
strength without a vestige of beauty,
a blot on the landscape for the next
fltt? years."

OSCAR B. MARX- Mayoralty Candidate
Who Should Receive the Support of Every Enrolled -Voter
at the Primary Election Tuesday—AND WHY!
"The reaponslblUtle* that reet on the shoulder* of the mayor
• of Detroit are great, but the reeponalblllty that devolves on the elec
toral# la the selection of the public offlcail. la HUI more Important and
farther teaching," la the view of Oscar B. Marx. Republican candidate
for mayor of Detroit.
“Recent developments Indicate more strongly than I can axpresa
it, the need for the greateet care and precaution in the nomination
and election of city officials at the coming primary and election.
“The great majority of the people of Detroit are honest, progres
sive, energetic cltlxene. They could not have built so wonderful a
city as this. If they were not.
“I regard the mayor of this city as a soldier under orders from
the people. He Is elected by the into do certain, specific things. If
he fails to carry out the orders of the people who placed him In
office, then he It not true to the trust that was reposed In him. *
“True, the mayor of a city of the else of Detroit cannot ask the ~
electorate what he shall do In every emergency that confronts him In
his office. He must do as his best Judgment dictates. „ '
“But in reference to thoee questions on which the people have
spoken, the mayor has no alternative but to do as they have com
manded. They elect him to carry out their wishes and If the mayor
fails to do so, he Is betraying a sacred trust. .Vl
“Among those questions on which the people have spoken and
spoken decisively, is the street railway question.
"To my mind the people have spoken wisely. Municipal owner
ship is the only positive, permanent settlement and Inasmuch as the
people demand it. It Is bound to come Just as surely as other forms
of settlement have been rejected.
"If the Detroit United Railway admits that It can give a lower
fare (as witness Its two former offers) In return for a mere franchise,
why can’t the city of Detroit give Just as low*lf not a lower, rate of
fare and keep the franchise Itself?
"There Is another far-reaching problem before the people of
Detroit today, and that is the rat* of taxation.
"In the office of mayor, I should demand such co-operation te
tween the various departments as would keep the cost of maintenance
of the city at the lowest figure commensurate with our growth and
“I should Insist on the employment of such business methods
and business management as would bring results with which no one
could Justly find fault. We must have Improvements, but they should
come to the taxpayer under such circumstances that when he pays
his share toward the cost, he will do so gladly and in a spirit of loyalty
to his city.
“In the selection of the commissioners who are directly respons
ible for the busines sos the various municipal departments, I should
exercise the greatest possible care. I should select only such men
as have demonstrated In a private capacity that they are capable of
performing th# duties to be entrusted to their care and I should also
impress on tiiem that they are the servants of the people and to all
alike must they give courteous, thoughtful consideration."
Oscar Marx as a boy worked on the farm and peddled milk to the
householders of Detroit for his father. He attended district school
at what is now the corner of Gratiot and Beaufalt avenues, The
Marx chlldre nwalked back and forth dally, the two and on-half
mllee, from the seminary to their home In the country, until Oecar
was 14 years old. Then he entered Goldsmith’s business college.
At 16 years of age Oscar was back-giving his entire attention
to the farm and dairy of his father.
Oecar was 26 years old when the spread of tha city made the .
use of the Marx farm longer as a crop producer unprofitable. Some
of the land was sold and the father gave each of the family of five
children, two boys and tiiree girls, a few thousand dollars to start
them on life’s way for tnemselvee .
In personality, Oscar Marx is the sort of man one llkee to meet.
That native German geniality and hospitality has made him a popu
lar figure in Detroit. He Uvea an Ideal home life. In 1896, he mar
ried Lydia Darnstaetter, the daughter of one of Detroit's prominent
German families. He has two children, Emms, 14, and Oscar 8.. aged
two and a half years.
