aiy as the city's expert on real es
'tate, Is expected to report at the next
meeting of the terminals committee
on land prices in this little district
where the peculiar shimps and jumps
in figures have been going on. Such
a report was ordered on motion of
tAId. Merriam at the last meeting of
tthe committee.
At that meeting Benj. Morris told
why he doesn't want to sell his land
at the figures offered him. When
Morris named Charles Krutchkoff. as
an interested party in a land deal
there, Aid. James Bowler offered the
statement that he knew about it and
had "co-operated with the people of
his ward to see that they were pro
tected and got their rights in land
deals."
' When a board of education commit
tee went looking into jugglery of
school land deals a year ago the loop

the most specious arguments that
have-beenjiresftnted."
