THE RICHMOND PALLADIUM AND SUX-TELEGRAM, TUESDAY, JULY 2, 1912.
Demand for Street Improve
ment Was Loud and Vigor
ous at the Meeting Held
Councilman Burdsall, of the Eighth
ward, led a vigorous attack on the
board of works last night at the coun
cil session when he deilared that the
city officials had not done a thing dur
ing the present administration toward
improving public works in the eighth
ward. He stated the residents of his
ward were determined to have a part
of their taxes expended for the good
of their ward. Burdsall stated the
streets were badly in need of repair,
Sheridan street in particular, being in
extremely poor condition.
Burdsall's protest was made because
a number of complaints he handed in
at the last meeting of council had not
been attended to. The mayor promis
ed that as soon as teams could be se
cured work in Fairview would start
and the street repaired as good as the
city could afford to do. The street de
partment is badly crippled for lack of
funds, all monies appropriated for it,
boing expended now, except a very
' small sum.
Councilman Waidele jumped onto
the corporations. Two bad sidewalks,
one at West First and the river, and
the other at 311 North West Third
street were blamed on to the Light,
Heat and Power company. He also
asked what explanation the city could
make for the contractor hauling away
the old brick gutters on West Main
street which the property owners de
sire. He was told the law gives the
citizen the right to all old brick used
for sidewalks, but gives the city the
right to a!'. jjutter and street paving
blocks or brick.
Councilman Evans, King, Thatcher
and Williams entered street com
plaints. Council ordered the Japanese quinc
eB in the Glen park cut down and burn
ed. They am badly infected with the
San Jose scale and are dangerous to
the remainder of the trees, stated City
Council tok under advisement a pe
tition for improving a part of the Com
mons road which is in the city and
which road is to be improved under
the three mile road act.
Street Car Question.
Burdsall started council going in the
matter ofstreet car service, by stat
ing that he did not think council
should back down and tamely restore
to the street car company its franchise
If the company did not at once get
busy on repairs here. Council was evi
dently of the same mind, and stated
that If the company did not make a
good showing in the line of repairs to
its system before the expiration of its
90 days of grace, its franchise "would
be a goner'
Waidele stated that as the city was
putting the screws down tight on the
street car company, it would be well
to make the other pole companies in
the city paint their poles, and City
Attorney Gardner was instructed to
look up their franchises to see if the
companies affected cannot be com
pelled to paint the poles as the street
car company has been required to do.
Council did not take action in the
matter of slicing off a part of the
council chamber to be used for fire
men's sleeping quarters. It was
thought best to wait until next year,
when it is possible an extension over
the jail will be built for the engineer's
office and the firemen will be given
the present engineer's office. Fred It.
Charles, city engineer, stated that
when a change was made the city en
gineer's office should be provided
with a fire proof vault in which to put
records of the city, which are almost
priceless, and which might be destroy
ed by fire.
Council went on record as being well
pleased with the appointment of Frank
Newman to the position of city fire
man to succeed H. Helmich, recently
discharged. The mayor stated New
man would be given charge of the auto
fire truck, but all members of the de
partment would be taught to operate
An ordinance appropriating $1,500
from the general fund to the special
street improvement fund was passed.
The city owes this amount for some
bonds which fell due yesterday and
must be paid at once.
Miss Sarah Hill, newly elected mem
ber of the school board, extended
council thanks for honoring all mem
bers of her sex in the city by appoint
ing her a member of the school board.
She stated she would do the very best
she could in her new position.
Mayor Zimmerman appointed Coun
cilman Waidele on the contracts and
franchise committee to take H. H. En
gelbert's place until the 'sick council
man is able to resume his duties.
Council was invited to a meeting of
the board of works to be held next
week at which time the water works'
proposal contract will be up for the
final consideration of the board of
works and the city council.
Nine members of the city council
and several members of the city ad

COUNCIL ACTS TO
SAVE ME TREES
Council Committee Appoint
ed to Arrange for Spray
ing the Trees.
The deadly plant louse, which is
now infesting the trees of Richmond
by millions, and bids fair to ruin many
of the best shade trees if not eradicat
ed soon, was the main topic of dis
cussion at council last evening. Prof.
J. F. Thompson, of the Richmond
high school, who as city forestor, ap
peared before council and pleaded for
quick action by the city in spraying
the shade trees of the city, to kill the
vermin. The mayor appointed a com
mittee of three to take prompt action
by either employing an expert to
spray all the shade trees of the city, or
to buy a sprayer and put some city of
ficial in charge of the work. The cost
of spraying will be charged to affect
ed property owners.
Councilman Kauffman started the
discussion when be asked that all
trees be trimmed eight feet above the
sidewalk that citizens may walk be
neath them without danger of losing
their headgear. Prof. Thompson who
was present, stated this could well be
done at this season, and launched in
to a description of the plapt louse and
its effect on shade trees. He explain
ed the activities of the louse, as set
forth recently in one of his articles
appearing in the Palladium. He
stated that if all the trees were not
sprayed and the lice killed,, the insects
on even a few trees would be able to
reinfest the remaining trees in a short
time. One insect reproduces about one
million with the short space of three
Prof. Thompson stated Richmond
had been very fortunate in having
very few plant or tree pests. He stat
ed the louse now on the shade trees is
the worst Richmond has ever had to
The mayor appointed Councilmen
Bartel, Waidele and Burdsall to take
charge of the situation. A special ses
sion of council will be held when this
committee is ready to make their re
port to council. If a forester residing
on the west side cannot be induced to

buy a sprayer and place it in a wagon.
The spraying machine is operated by
a gasoline engine, capable of throwing
a fine spray 40 feet high. This will
spray practically every shade tree in
the city. Prof. Thompson stated one
machine would be enough to spray all
the trees of the city.
