Every one is invited to al.beml. CHANGE OF ftrKKl.r UHAI.K4. Ham* Hi _. _ _ **•'*•■ * lMW ,N,n,< ■** For the Kkitbi.njas. le there in any one particular thing that the City Council should give speelal and extraordinary attention to aud carelul consideration of, before they act upon It. that matter is the changing of the regular established grades of the city. There is a proposition now being made to Council to change grades estab lished less than one year ago on the ad vice of our late vervskillful and efficient engineer, M. C. Oonwell, ber 4th, 1882, Council met in special session at Clayton and Chestnut streets to establish the grades at that point, to meet the requirements of that rapidly improving section of the city, as a Targe amount of property would soon be need ed for building purposes. To properly meet I he necessities of the case, M r. (kmwell prepared, wl h much thought aud labor, a plan for the grade of Clay ton street, south of Front street. This plan was prepared by Mr. Couwell the request of the Opening Streets Com that llie Council by meeting on the ground and having the profile diagram of the proposed grade present at the meeting, ami having the same fuliy explained by the Chief Engineer, the Couucfl could then understand the reasons wbv the Engineer bail Axed grades as shown on the plot. Couucfl therefore held a special ses sion as alsive stated. I iind by making a search of the minutes of Council for 1882, that twenty members attended this special meeting. The object of the meeting as staled by Mr. Garrett, chairman of the committee on opening streets, was to fix the grade of Clayton street, and on bis motion, Mr. Conwell was requested to explain the plan ot grades prepared for said street. Mr. Conwell then presented the plans pre pared by him and carefully explained ibe grade by him proposed, which be said be considered the best one that could be established for the benefit of the city. By this plan Mr. Conwell proposal that at the point where Clav ton street Intersects Chestnut the bed of Chestnut street should lie raised ubove the level of the ground at. that point, so as to make a descent to Front street of one loot aud mue-tentbs of a foot to cir ry oil'ibe water tiowlng down Chestnut street to Clayton out into Kruut street, which would make the ascent from Clayum to Elm and from Elm to Un den streets each of the slight ascent of seven feet each. This Mr. Oonwell ex plained would make a much better and easier grade from Chestnut to Un den than the present bed of thestree,.. By raising Clayton so ae to leavo a descent of one foot and f-lllto Front- strci-r all the water coining down the north side of Chestnut street, from ficott street, would flow out iuto Front street at Clayton street re near t . Why Il-e Grade nearly wat who his stable at the be of be a Fair— other heard to : all who years and the as be , A the In lias on at - for a wan On Novein at wit lee, or the a j at t reef at Ch«>tuut of iiere it priqierly Ix-lun^H. Otlierwisn, all tin water lallitiK south uf Kruut would have to ko <j(, wu Chestnut street, anil the water coming down the sourb side ot Front street, would also al Clay ton street all be forced down Chestnut street, not only making Chestnut street the receiver of all the water that na turally Hows down tho steep i from Linden to Chestnut, hut also forc ing into Chestnut street from Front street at Clayton, all the water Mowing from all the gutters north of Chestnut street to Front street as iar west as Scott street. Th s Is certainly an indisputable fact, and if this question is squarely pul to the present Chief Engineer, he w II ver fy this statement Now, Council is asked to change the grade established hy Or inance, November 23d, 1883, ami l-hs petitioners now ask that instead of the Htreet s it » lesoen I inance, November 23d, 1883, ami l-hs petitioners now ask that instead of raising the grade of Clayton at Chest nut that it be depressed several inches, at the very point where the plan pro posed by Chief Engineer Conwell, and also established by orfiinan e, raised this street at this point some three feet or more alsive the bed of the sir et as it then and now presents Itself to view. Now, why is this radical change of grade proposed? Mr. Couwell sail tuatit was necessary to raise Clayton street at Chestnut street some three four feet to properly drain that section of the city to the best advantage of the property. Now, to save the filling up of over worked brek yards belonging to ptv vate individuals, Council is asked to depress the bed .f Clayton Btreet at Chestnut. The grade, which is very steep one fromChestnut to l.lnden, by this depression would be increased, and mako the descent much steeper t-bati it was originally. Now tho quest on , why this change, and who In to be benefited thereby ? Tho answer to this question Is, their uumbers few tliat, they could be counted oi\ me fingers of one siug!„ They am the yards which they wish to Sell without having to go to the expense of tilling up to a proper street grade to enable them to depose of them fur building lots, They want the tax-payers of the city to grtula down a street now already teet too ] Chestnut street to drain private prop erty. Now, if those men dig out piis io make bricks which afterwaids be come stagnant jiools of water, let them take care of them at their own expense, aud not at the expense of the taxpayers. On the grade established by Ordinance on Clayton street in November last, ou the recommendation oi Chief Engineer Conwell, tne lines have been given for gralii and several new house of erection on the grade then established ; to change the grade now, would greatly damage those buildings. They were constructed to suit the fixed grade at Chestnut street. Now if It is depressed at tliat point, as proposed,the first floor elevation will be some fifteen inches greater than it should be, caus threeadditional outside steps to reach the front door sills which would greatly injure the buildings in appearance aud also depreciate their value Council must look this matter square ly in the face. When grades are es tablished hy ordinance and buildings are erected according to such grude, ami the grade is afterwards changed to the detriment of tile property, the city is liable for damages. Goes the city wish to court a suit st law to benefit a few private individual.-. ? tliat is the qiiesib-u now presented for r.lielr con sul -ration by the prooosed bango of grade on Clayton stre must remember, fhat they cannot be changing grades dl streets ad-llbltum without the risk of heavy suits for damages. With the present grude es lislied the c t-y runs no risk of ex pensive litigation will) a change of grade to the injury of property, lor damages will Inevitably come. The changing of established grades of streets, w hose grades have lieeu recom niled hy a skilful engineer, is no child's play, and the tax psdrers of the city protest against CouiiaQ ^titering into a measure which wil to pay several thousand do] ages to benefit lot specula! tueu of the City Council, c or now a ar men who oWtl old brick some to make a sluice down are now III C III iiig tw i lie Council tali BUitB them dam sntle well before you act.
