Alderman Golledge brought up the question of opening up the street crossings over the A. & C. railroad. The mayor read a letter he had re ceived from W. C. Perry, vice presi dent of tho road, at Kansas City, in which that gentleman said tho road wished to opon up all tho streets they possibly could, but did not agree with' the council In their de sire to open every stroet. Mr. Gollodge was of the opinion thatthe council had waited long enough. He said that the city coun cil had voted unanimously to open thoso streets after ton days. If tho railroad failed to do so, and ho con sidered that they ought to do It. Alderman McCharen thought coun cil ought to do something toward that end. Tho mayor wanted to get along amicably with the railroad peoplo if he could, nnd suggested that they write to Mr. Perry and get him to tho matter experienced in breaking and training colts.
