Gentlemen —At the election held No
vember 8. of this year, the people rati
fied an amendment empowering jour
honorable body to Increase the sal
aries of certain city officials within

those who voted affirmatively on this
hmendmeht, 1 take it, that the In
creases would be allowed officials
chosen at the same election. The cor- .
poratlon counsel Informs me. however,
that In his opinion the constitution of- I
fers a legal barrier to the raising of
the salaries of the Mayor. City Treas
urer and City Clerk after their elec
tlon.
In consequence of Mr. Lawson »
views. It is my request that no at
tempt be made to raise the salary of
the Mayor during his present term of
office. I believe, however, that your
honorable body should adjust the sal
aries of city officials as provided In
the charter amendment recently adopt
ed. that the Mayor's successor or any
other of the present city officials who
are legally entitled to the raises, may
receive them

The president waa called to the

From the Department of Park* and
Boulevard*.
To the Honorable the Common Council:
Gentlemen Referring to the petition
of Messrs. FT. A. Gagnler ana I>. J.
Baker protesting against the method
of planting trots on Dexter boulevard
and referred to this department, 1
have to say that by authority of Beo
tlon 1, Ordinance 29ft, the planting of
trees along Dexter boulevard wa*
done The section referred to reads as
follows:
“The Department of Parks arid
Boulevards shull have power and con
trol over all trees, shrubs and plant*
planted, or to be pjanted In the streets
and public hlghwu>s In the City of
Detroit and the power to plant, prune,
spray, cultivate, preserve and other
wise maintain such trees within the
confines of the public highways of the
City of Detroit.
Section 9 also says “No person,
firm or corporation shall plant In any
street or public highway a tree at a
distance of less than 25 feet from any
other tree, or at a distance of less
than two feet from the established
sidewalk line of said street except
upon a written permit first obtained
from the Department of Parks and
Boulevards."
As stated In the petition, verbal no
tice was served upon the people liv
ing oh Dexter boulevard of our inten
tions to replace some of the trees and
to plant where none wrere already lo
cated. This was a matter of courtesy
and not because of uny obligation to
do so. The size of the tree was not
mentioned.
In placing the trees an attempt was
made to keep as near as possible a
uniform distance between, and In the
block referred to eight trees were
planted on each side with spuces be
tween of 31 feet. 31 feet. 32 feet. 32
feet. 33 feet six Inches. 32 feet seven
Inches. The distance of 33 feet six
inches was made necessary because of
an automobile driveway
There w'ere a few cases where Inex
pensive planting had to be changed or
rearranged ami in such cuses the work
was done by our men and tin- prop
erty owner consulted. In several In
stances small trees were taken up and
transplanted In • tho owners' back
yards The owner thus lost nothing
and was put to absolutely no expense
by reason of the slight changes made.
Relative to lot No. 112. on which
your petitioners lay great stress, we
find that the owner some time ago had
gone to the expense of one hundred
dollars to plant two 8-lnch elms In
fronts of his property This property
has 60 feet 2 Inches of frontage His
trees were planted 23 feet 6 Inches
apart, w’hlch was not satisfactory to
us. They were transplanted at a dis
tance of 32 feet apart and left In front
of his own property. He thus merely
retained what he already had and
paid for and secured from the city
nothing In addition.
Each of your petitioners retained, in
some manner or other that which they
already had and In addition had placed
in front of their property a four-inch
elm tree.
It Is the policy of this department
not to consider the Individual property
but rather the beautification of the
streets as a whole, in fact, in at
tempting the beautification of the City
we could hardly afford to take Into
consideration the claims of u single
Individual as In many cases the indi
vidual W’ould nrobably be obliged to
sacrifice something or other wh* re the
community as a whole Is to be bene
fited.
The planting on the whole hio
greatly Improved that thoroughfare
and we find that the people generally
are pleased It Is to be regretted that
the first efforts on the part of the City
In the way of Improving the City
streets through tree planting should
arouse the Jealousy and antugonlsm of
even two
