At a special meeting of the Board ol Aldermen, held last night, the contract made by the Committee on Street* with the Washington Asphalt Block and 1 lie Company was approved. The reso? lution now go, s to the -Mayor tor his signature, after which the Street Com? mittee will be called to authorize the chairman to sign the llnal contract. The only objection in the Hoard of j Aldermen came from Mr. Menuett, who stated that he did hot advocate any other form of pavement, out objected that the price of $2.Sil was excesslvt He moved to separate the bids for tile paving and for the concrete founda? tion, explaining that since the sanu company was now laying lite block paving <"' Urove Avenue nt |2,li3 per square yard, and since lie hail been Informed that the concrete base could be laid for ::t; cents per square yard, he believed the city, by awarding separate bids, could save :'T cents per square yard. Mr. Bennett urged that he would be unworthy to oiler as a candidate for the .Adminis? trativ? Board if he did not wat.h for auch opportunities to sav< money i" the city. To coritlrm the contract its it was was throwing away thousands | of dollars, he contended. Could imi Separate Them.

The paper pending was a resolution approving an award of contract made by the Com? mittee on Streets, The resolution could be accepted or rejected, but the com trabt as drawn by the committee could not be amended Protouilns that he had no desire u tie up the improvement, hut that lit could noi s< ? ? the city throw away money so recklessly, Mr. Bennett moved to r< commit tin- paper to the Committee on Streets, with Instruc? tions to get separate bids on the blocks] and the laying of the concrete foun? dation. Mr. Powers replied that the whole point bad been fully discussed in tht Committee on Streets; that Mr. Ben tiett's estimates fell far short of what It would cost to lay a six-Inch bed ol concrete, at-.d that the divided respon? sibility of having two contractors on such a Job would be dann, rous and might lead lo poor work.
