CAR COMPANY IS BLAMEO McUl Responsible fur Long Do-; lays in Paving Many Streets. Dilatory work of city contractors and the delay In execution of public work formed a topic of discussion at i the meeting of tho Council Committee i>ii Streets yesterday afternoon, but little was don..-, lite contractors that asked for further time getting It in each case. City Engineer Charles K. Boiling brought first to the attention of the committee the fact that btds had been Invited and contracts award ed In April to L. El. Brown & Co. for laying a large amount Of granolithic curbs and gutters. .Some of the work In the West End has been partly com? pleted, but Sixteen blocks on Church 11111 remain untouched, and no mate? rial has been placed on the ground. The work was to have been completed In sixty daj s. and Is now that mu^h. overdue. Mr. Boiling had secured bld.< from other contractors and favored having the work done at once at the. expense of Messrs. Brown & Co. The committee heard from Mr. Hrown, re? minded him that he hud assured the committee in the spring that he was amply equipped to carry on the work, j and finally gave him a week In which i to begin work. If it Is not begun in I that time, and thereafter prosecut. d to the satisfaction of the City .Engi? neer, Mr. Boiling was authorized to have the work dono at tlie expense of the contractor. raxing lime Delayed, Mr. Boiling then reported that early in the .spring the committee had awarded to various paving contractors contracts for paving Robinson Street from Broad to Main Street. Ashland str.et from Harrison to Randolph Street, and Pino Streot from Albe marie to Cary Street, in neither case has tho street railway company even begun to replace its rails, although given repeated notices by frequent let? ters from the City Engineer. on Main from Fifth '.<> Seventh the paving had beoii delayed for several weeks by '.ho ftreel cur company after the street was torn up. and on Broad Street from Harrison to All'aon very slow progress has been mude in relayug the tracks, the car company there causing much delay. Mr. Hulling explained that tho reason for these delays waa that heretofore city con? ti actors have done the paving between the car tracks at the same rate' as charged to the city, the bill being paid by the street car company under its franchise obligation. c ar t uuiuhnj to Blame. in the past lew months the Commit? tee on Streets, over the protest of the City Engineer, authorized a different method of laying the car tracks, elimi? nating concrete under the ties, and al? lowing a crushed stone Oed. Because of differences in the method of laying this surface* contractors were unwill? ing to lako the paving at the same prico as that done for the city out? side the car tracks, and in tho case! of Main Slieet were unwilling to guar- | anteo the work when done. There is i no obligation on tho contractor for the city to do work foi the street j car Company at any price. The ordl- i nance merely require t lie street car company to repave. between its tracks and for two feet on either side with the same material and In the same character as the city paves. Tho com? mittee after discussion decided that it had nothing to do with what ar? rangements trio Virginia Railway and rower Company may make with Its contractors, and instructed the City Kngineer to notify the company to pp teed with the paving forthwith, under penalty of prosecution In the courts for further holding back of, already iong delayed Improvements. Haphazard Methods of ? omitUttee. Tue haphazard way In wfitch the Street Committee does Us work was shown In the report of the City Engi? neer that of the amounts apportlom-l for streets generally to each ward in the annual ward grab following the. adoption of the latt annual budget each , Ward save Madison and Washington has far exceeded its apportionment In the amount of w ork ordered, while not ! one-third of the street fund has been! actually expended. Clay Ward was] apportioned $60,000, and the ward did-j egatlon has ordered work costing more than $71,000, of which less than $18,000 lias been paid out in the seven months of this year that have passed. I Unless more business-like methods are adopted. It was predicted that a large part of the street fund would revert to the treasury at tho end of the year, unspent, notwithstanding tho Overwhelming demands for street Im? provements in every section. Of the various funds under charge of the 'Street I.iepartmenl last year, there ro vertcd to the city treasury unexpended, because of delay in execution of con? tracts, carrying the. work forward into this year, $35,436, of "which amount $14,226.29 has been appropriated for streets generally. Damage*! but ,v<, Grudlng. Mr. Boiling announced the appoint? ment of Thomas F*. Boyle as arbitrator for the city In settlement of certain grading damages in the East End. In this connection It was reported that several of the ward delegations, not? ably Lee Ward, have ordered assess? ments of damages for grading and the city lias paid damages for grading Streets for which there are now no available funds to do the work. On report of the Assessor of Oamapes. $2,."i00 was recently ordered paid prop? erty owners on Park Avenue, weal ot the Boulevard, for damages to their property by reason of proposed changes in the grades. The ward delegation has exceeded Its funds and has no money for the grading. If the prop erty changes hand It may be that the, damages will have to he paid all over again.

In addition to all possible references I as to local real estate, the llbr.-.ry run I tains similar volumes relating to con? ditions In all of the most Important I cities of the Unted States, especially l in the Cast. With these convenient as I they are, It will be an easy matter f<->r j any member of tho exchange to make j n comparison of values with any other ,c-ty. Steadily Increasing.

Tills will, of course, have a tendency to throw undesirables I on those who are not members, and I? i one of the bo.tt arguments n3 to why Entrance Fees May Be Deducted From Expenses as Defined in Primary Statute. I A section of the new Byrd primary law was overlooked ii, the recent as? sumption Hint Stute Senaloi Don P. iHulsoy had exceeded tho limit allowed for expenses of candidates, The sec? tion referred to exempts-the entrance fee fro .i the list of expenses upon Which a limit I? placed. Tho law provides that no candidate In a primary election shall expend more then 15 cents for every vote cast for the candidate of his .party receiv? ing the largest vote nt the last preced? ing gubernatorial election within the territory whore he Is a candidate. But this is exclusive of the entrance fee. The vote for Governor Mann in ioo!>, In what It now tho sixth District, wa8 n,76A. This would permit a candidate for Congress In' that district ?o spend $sr.t .00, besides the entrance fee of $876. Mr. Ilalsey oxpendod $1,100, ac? cording 10 his expense nCCOUnl as Hied Wltlt the Secretary of tho CommOII 1 wealth. Deducting the fee. he spent only 972? for purposes upon which a limit Is set In the law. Therefore. Senator Hnlsey Is in no danger of ritsfram-hisemeiit nor of dis? qualification from holding oillco.

This action was the result ot petitions on the part of many Broad street mer? chants, who aru anxious that In tho futuro licenses b? granted to persons who will conduct these places ot amusement in a proper manner, Tho question of suitable locations will r.lii be a point on which the board will p.i:s if the ordinance Is enacted Into a law. Patrolman J. B.
