BROADWAY WILL BE WIDENED.
The Council Denies tho Protest
Against The Report.
Hard Fight Made by Some of tho
Property owners.
The Council \> .''•ti a t.*r£« Amount or
Hluur Builnr-iia—Klekfi Against
the fJtrtaat Swooping.
Tho important measure before the council
yesterday was tha hearing of the protest
against the report of the commissioners on tho
widening or Broadway, between Ninth and
Tenth streols.
The dflOOJalon on tho pros and cons o! the
Issue occupied nearly the whole afternoon scs
•ion and at the end of the arguments tho coun
cil confirmed the report of tho commissioners
and denied the protest.
Outside of this, the council did little work of
especial interest. Tho report of the board of
public works was adopted entire and thus a
arga amount of street work was put under way
and a large number of street crossings ordered
put in or repaired.
The old street-swooping matter came up,
when the residents of Figueroa atreet sent a
representative to talk about the improper way
In which the sweebing is being done. Tho re
sult ot this was that the street sweeper will be
notified to a weep the streets properly or have
his bills disallowed.
A large number of petitions were referred to
the several committees. Tl*; hearing of tho
Bcllevue avenue sewer protest was deferred
one week more. The council adjourned to
Thursday morning at I) o'clock, when the
school bono proposition will he settled.
Thu appointment of a plumbing inspector
was ac&tn deferred, though there was a dead
lock over the matter, four members, lead by
Mr. Savage, being in favor of immediate action
and the four other.-, led by Mr. Mutison, favor
ing delay.
WIDENING BROADWAY.
Tha rrotflut D*nled Hurt Com million*
*»r»* Report c infl ni <1
The hearing of the protest against the con
firmation of the report of the commissioners
on the widening and extending of Broadway,
between Ninth and Tenth streets, was made a
special order of the afternoon session.
Attorney J. L. Murphy appeared for the pro
testants. He stated that the council must not
understand his clients as attempting io stand
lv the way of any public improvement. "Our
conteniiou is that the report of the commis
sioners is unjust and that the work of the com
mission Is unlawful," said Mr. Murphy.
Many witnesses, mostly property owners ou
Broadway, were called and testified. The bur
fieri of their song was that the assessment was
/Unjust. Ono of the great objections to the
commissioners' repo* t was that the street rail
way company owning tracks on Broadway
which aro not used, is assessed only $100,
Another objection was that the assessments
diminish the further away from the place
where the street is to be widuned. Tho con
tention was that thu business property on
Jtroadway as far down as First or Temple
streets even should havo been assessed
nioro, as it is the most benefited.
Attorney Louis Oottschalk also argued the
case of tiie protesrants aud several attorneys
and others argued against the protest. At tho
conclusion of tho argument Mr. Klngory
moved that tin protest be denied and the re
port confirmed, and this motion was carried
uuanim ously.

whore it is paved, presented a verbal petition
that tlie contractor having tho street sweeping
bo required to do tho work properly. The pa
titlon Stated, that the work la done* so imper
fectly and Improperly now that the property
of the residents is damageit and their heal h
impaired ; that dust rises In clouds when the

around, even entering tho houses and injur
ing the furniture.
Thia brought up the matter of street sweep
ing und Mr. Munsou said that there WU no
doubt it is being done very badly now. He
said it made no difference because ttie eon
tractor only gets 40.33 per mile for sweeping,
when the lowest it wai ever done before
was $10.
"The street sweeping Is not properly dono
and l believe that this council ought" not to
anprovo the hills." said Mr. Munson.

swept the bills will not be allowed.
