SiATtLt, Sept 4, lM*.
[ TsthEki#*; This »eem- to me
| an opportune time for citizens to lay
j i<efore the public their views ami »ug-
Ipertions concerning the ways and
| means of advancing the growth and
prosperity of Seattle. I take it for
granted that no intelligent man now
| doubt* that Seattle i* destined to be
come a large, rich ami famous city.
Its progress this year has exceeded the j
most sanguine anticipations; next!
year the progress wfll be far greater. I
! It will not be many years before 100,- j
people will reside here. This city
wa« not originally laid out on a metro
politan plan. Like Topsy, Seattle has
"grnwed. ' It» growth ha» l«en the I
evolution of a sawmill town The j
day baa arrived when the town plan I
must 1* improved upon. Every!
month that the improvement j
is postponed. Seattle lose- thousands!
upon thousands of dollar-. We are j
soon to have a hotel worthy of "-ealt.'r. I
We also nee<! a business street worthv
of iL The city council refu-el awhile
ago to give us such a street by th»- et
tension of Front street through to
South Second street. This extcn-ioii
would at that time have co-t atw it
$75,009; it would now cost over three
times that sum; and before long it
will not be practicable to do it for less
than ten time- that sum. A few vears
ago Commercial street could, for a
mere trifle, have I sen extended in a
direct line to Front -treet: it would
now co-t at leist sl,oft!,ono to accom
pli-h that extension
The present situation at the intersec- !
tion of Mill and Commercial streets is 1
intolerable Helief must be found for '
the pre—ure at that point. If the
remedy for it mill al-o give a continu
ation of Front -treet south, it will be
an incalculable benefit to Seattle.
The owner* of the t.ro]ierty bounded
by Mill. Main. Commercial, and South
Second street- are alive to the iraiiort
am-e of intelligent and early action in
this matter. I know that wveral of the
large-t owner- (and I lielieve nearly, if
not quite all) favor the widening oi the
alley between thc-e blocks to 58 feet.
Thi- would eivc the much needed ex
tension of Front street; it would al-o
give to each lot within tho«e four
blocks two valuable frontage-; and it
would give effect to the natural ad
vantages of that property as the l«st
bu-ine-s site in Seattle.
This improvement will nece-sitate!
the rai-ing of the grade on Coinmer- i
i ial street at lea-t 3 feet. It will admit
ot ba-ements under all buildings, thus j
utilizing the most valuable portion of j
the property. Basements, well venti-1
lated, are not only u-eful for bn-inr--
puposeses, but ore also of the highc tj
sanitary value.
The consideration last mentioned '
suggest- n train of reflection-; but I :
fear that to pre-cut them with tolerable
fulness would involve too great tres
pa-s on your-pace. I have great con- •
tldence in the intelligence arid pro-!
gre-sive spirit of our city council. It
must see that Seattle i- iu urgent nee.l ■
of an efficient system of sewerage, ami
that delay in providing such a system i- '
extremely dangerou-. The situation
i- already critical. The council should
spare no pain- or expense to provide a
permanent remedy. I.et there lie no
mere tinkering makeshift-, but intel
ligent and systematic action on a large
scale. The very best professional aid .
should be procured ; it is always the ■
cheape-t in the long run. Nature ha
licen bountiful of her favors to Seattle;
but nature cannot supply, ready-made,!
all the sanitary means and appliances
proper to a city. It is-aid that "the j
tAird helps those who help them- j
selves." It i- certain that nature will I
l>e a powerful ally of the council in all!
judicious scheme* for the preservation j
of the city's health. Abie phvsicians j
are always prepared and willing to!
give important advice on thette matter-, j
1 aiu -nre that in devising sanitary
plan-, the council would do well to;
consult the leading physicians of Se
attle anil give hee«l and effect t.> their i
views and suggestions.
The pre*ent council ha- a grand op
portunity to promote the symmetry
and well-beingr of Seattle, and I tru.-t
that opportunitv will In- improved.
