who had applied for a position but was
deficient in arithmetic was among the

Public improvements, notably paving
projects, formed the feature of the city
commission meeting yesterday, nine
different improvements coming before
the commission in one way or another,
either in petitions from property own
ers, resolutions by the commission, or
reports by the city engineer.
The commission led off by passing in
rapid succession three resolutions, or
dering respectively, the improvement
of Willetta street between Seventh and
Twelfth streets; portions of Brill,
Tenth and Eleventh. streets, and Fifth
street between Adams and lloosevelt
Probably the most important im
provement that came up was a petition
requesting that a deed be accepted and
a 30-foot street opened, running north
and south through Bryan Place. The
street would be known as Thirteenth
avenue, and would extend that avenue
to Polk street by joining with a private
driveway now in use between Twelfth
and Fourteenth avenues. The petition
also asked that a 15 -foot alley be
opened between the proposed extension
of Thirteenth avenue and Fourteenth
avenue and a sewer service run
through the alley.
The matter was referred to the city
engineer with instructions to notify the
interested psxties, if he finds it satis
factory that he may proceed with the
The other street improvement peti
tions were taken up by the commis
sion, one for Sixth avenue between
Fillmore and Roosevelt streets, and the
other for Second street between Port
land and Culver. The city engineer
was instructed to prepare plans and
specifications for the former, while the
latter was referred to the engineering
department for checking.
Following favorable reports by the
engineering department on petitions for
the improvement of Portland street
from Central avenue to Seventh street,
and portions of Jefferson and Madison
streets and Twentieth avenue, the city
engineer was instructed to prepare
plans for both projects.
Mr. Henderson addressed the meet
ing relative to paving Van Buren street
from Seventh avenue to Fifteenth ave
nue, stating that while they had not
secured all the signatures they had
sufficient to warrant the work, and
that those who had not signed the pe
tition would not sign a protest, and
moved, seconded by Irvine, that the
city engineer be instructed to. proceed
with the work in the usual manner.
The motion was carried unaaiaiotfeafc-

A picture of the intake gallery
planned for the new Verde River
gravity water system for the city will
be published in Phoenix newspapers
to give the public an idea of the man
ner in which water will be taken from j
the Verde river sub-surface flow for
use in Phoenix, according to plans ap-
proved "by the city commission. The
action was taken after City Manager
Thompson had presented plans for the
intake gallery to the commission.
Under the present project for the
big new water works system for the
city, the water supply is to come from
the below-the-surface flow of the
Verde river, insuring the best of the
water. The intake gallery, the extreme
river end of the waterworks system,
will take up the water and start it on
its way through pipes and mains to
Phoenix. No. pumps will be, required
in bringing the water from the river to
the city reservoirs, the whole system
being operated by gravity, making it
the cheapest and most simple water

Construction of a 1200,000 reinforced
concrete building at Fourth avenue and
Jackson street by the Melczer company
was the announcement made by the
wholesale grocers yesterday. The build
ing will be three stories with a base
ment and the entire -floor space will be
utilized by the firm, which expects to
move into the new quarters by the first
of the year.
According to the plans the building
will be one of the most modem and up
to date establishments In the south
west. Except for a few minor changes
the plans have been found satisfactory
and local contractors will soon take the
preliminary steps toward building the
wholesale house which will occupy the
three lots. 150x137'!. feet, purchased by
the firm from Harry Kennedy.
The Melczer company has found its
present quarters on Adams treet wholly
inadequate for its business, which has
branched out widely throughout the
state. It is understood that negotia
tions are now under way far the lease
of the Adams street store, which is
considered one of the best down town
locations in the .business districts.
The Melczer company was organized
about a year ago with Louis Melczer as
president and Joseph T- Melczer as
vipe president. Both had previously
acquired interests in Goldman and com
pany, which they took over, adding to
the firm LeRoy McPeak as second vice
president; Gus Summerfield, secretary,
and Edward Melczer, treasurer. Trie
old established retail business had been
changed to wholesale business some
time before, which has greatly devel
oped during the past year.
