Chase, a member of that body. The Optic Is privileged to make the following excerpts from the address, they being pertinent to Las Vegas at this time: The grade of streets Is one of the most vital subjects influencing the general appearance and beauty of the city. It Is one of the first questions lhat should be taken up by a growing community, yet many times It is neg lected until It is forced to the front in the matter of paving; when in most states it is found that the law requires the grade to be established before the work of paving begins. Almost any one who has held a pub lic 'office can recall some trouble in the matter of grades, and long rows of buildings with every conceivable variation in height above the street are a common eight, silent monu merits of a lack of foresight and fore thought in not having the grade etudied out and established before building arrives at any great degree of permanency. It requires no lengthy argument to convince any business man or city "father" of the wisdom of having a system of grades establish ed while the town is young; but it should not be attempted haphazard or a street "at a time. The first step necessary and advis able in beginning the work ia to ob tain a working map of the city and surrounding territory, and carefully study the arrangement of streets and peculiarities of the situation; best done by actually covering the ground. A prominent and fixed jioint should be selected for the principal bench "or datum and from this point side lines of benches in various directions should be run. In view of future use, as well as your own convenience, choose benches and arrange them so that in running cross levels you will be able to read on a bench at least every half a mile. Then proceed to make a complete top ographical survey of the whole cor poration and as much of the outside territory as drains through the city or influences the work at hand. While practically not necessary to carry these readings to a fine point. it Is best to insist on strictest accur acy from your instrument men, as the discipline is good, preventing that laxity which might result in a costly error. In taking levels It is generally ad visable to have readings at both the center and sides of the streets, the block corners, water tables or founda tlon of existing structures, railroads or other tracks, covers to manholes, in vert of sewers, etc., and in these days of the camera, a photograph of a dif- flcult point Is often of great service .especfally, when you are working out the details in an office, perhaps a thousand or more miles away. Having completed the survey the next step is to place on the map all the levels taken, or in case of a large oity and a small map, street intersec tions only. Then check by dot or other mark the readings taken: la also helpful to mark the direction of the houses or buildings face in each block. It is now possible at a glance to see if your survey is complete and if so, the work ia ready for the office. In particularly difficult or imnort- ant cases a profile should accompany the plat, giving both the center and sides of the street, with all improve ments or obstructions. Brick, stone and wooden buildings should be shown In elevation with conventional colors to distinguish them, as red, gray and yellow. In considering existing im provements, wood structures are een erally regarded as temporary, and brick, stone or metal, permanent; but the degree must be settled by the Judgment of the engineer. What factors are to be used in determining the grades depends very much on circumstances. Sewage should always be consid ered as a leading factor, as the sew ers require a certain amount of fall to keep clean, and if too steep will run dry and wear out. The street grade should be from ten to fourteen feet above the sewer, according to circum stances. In arriving at this, take the elevation pf the T on the sewer, the amount of raise to the wall of the building to be connected, allow for the sewer coming In one foot below the soil and then add the depth of the soil; the total will give about the proper height of the street grade above the sewer, Whether to give ease of calling, or effect on the existing property, the preference will depend on the street and locality. On a business street with much long-distance hauling, cut the grade it would be poor policy for the sake of perhaps a few thousand dollars' damages to property, to compel the spending of many times more money by the puU:g who have to travel It Again, ia a poorly residence dis trict, with no through travel, much deeper grades and less cut or Gil as advisable. Where a street has abrupt changes, particularly In the residence portipn, the use of vertical curves and reversed curves Is recommended, thus greatly Improving appearances; but always give very fuil data of your work on curves or they are liable not to be laid out correctly. Each street should bo figured as far as possible to carry IU own surface water. It is a great temptation, with a ravine handy, to dump the water into it, and this Idea Is generally favored by the council and the unin itiated, but the Nemesis is sure to come when the property is improved and the streets paved, for the water will run off so much faster than con gertlon and flooding will result. For the latter reason convergence in grades should be avoided, and the drainage split as much as possible. In the arrangement of side hill streets and terraced streets, the engin eer has a good opportunity to dlsDlay his ingenuity and any latent artistic taste which he may possess. The practice of raising the up hill curb and giving the road way a fall to the center, or making it all of the same slope to the down hill curb, is a rood way of overcoming this difficulty, and if you are careful, some pretty effects can be obtained out of an "outrageous cut" Some have discouraged thin arrangement because of throwing the water to one side; but this Is not of valid objection, as it ft easy to pro vide for the water. In other cases the street itself has been terraced and an upper and lower roadway built on different grades. As curb grades are almost insepar- ately connected with general street grade, we will consider them. The curb grade ia often given a certain fixed amount above the Btreet grades but this is a poor rule. While it should always be uniform the height can of ten be varied in different localities, with benefit. Of course it should be figured at the same time as the street and fixed then. Not long eince, in an article on grades, I noticed the statement that the curb was to be set on the estab lished grade, and that the center of the street was to be raised or lowered to give the desired crown. This would be illegal in most states, as it is gen erally held that the grade is the ton of the pavement in the center, and that at this point it must correspond with the ordinances, by-laws or other official records of the corporation wherein the grade is defined. Local conditions of surface drain age and convenience generally gov ern the depth of the gutter and height of curb to be exposed, and when not restricted by rules of the corporation, are subject to the discretionary pow er or the engineer. Walk grades can either be taken with the general grade or separate according to circumstances. In hunt. ness districts and in well built up localities It would be best to settle them at the same time. Very few of our cities have an es tablished "building" grade; this would be a desirable innovation, and Is one of the things to be honed for When there is a considerable cut on the streets it should be distributed partly between the curb and walk and partly between the curb and lot line. The minimum rfflna fmm th curb to the lot line, includine walk Is one-fourth vertical Inch to the foot horizontal; the maximum can hardly be fixed. When all parts of the work have been covered and the figures are ready for presentation, this is nut in the form of a report. As in most cases this report is to convey technical in formation to those not familiar with technical matters; let the renort be clear, brief and as free from technical terms as possible. This report should be followed bv an ordinance (which in many states is mandatory) regularly passed, taking up the grades as recommended in the engineer's report, in a systematic and regular order. First as a whole, then by subdivisions, and lastly each street as a separate section; so that in case of possible errors or changes, the whole ordinance would not have to be spread and passed, but only the section pertaining to the peculiar street In question. The ordinance should also make ref erence to the plans and profiles of the work as filed in the proper office, and, If allowable, be made a part of the or dinance by reference. When the ordinance Is printed, look out for trouble; In ninety-nine cases out of 100 you will find printers' mis takes that no one but an engineer would notice, and they should be look ed after and corrected. Finally, the whole should be re corded in a large book, clearly Indexed and kept in a place convenient for In spection. and va;;ciis tropical fruits and flow era from the south. In seating the guests at the ban quel board, Mr. Gavin said: "Friends and honored guests: The pleasure is ours to have you here w evening and participate i tality. There ia no feat that Is as pleasant as that wherein we are gathered around the festive board, and we look solely and en tlrely upon the bright side of life.
