Should it Bo Extended to Winn
And Should it Have a Railroad
For more than four years such a
proposition has been uudor considera
tion Itis tiuo that the city has got
ten along without tho property which
would have boon opened up by such
an extension but what would it have
been had this proporty beon open
Vhou it was first spoken of there wore
thirteen persons who wanted building
lota and who would havo built
1S8 than 2000 each or 26000 which
our working men who would have
used it with our divers business mon
and besides this tho 26000 togothor
with tho other lots which would have
been laidofT would havo been asourco
of revonuo to tho city honco it would
havo boon wjsdom to havo oponed tho
street thon At this timo thoro is not
so great a domand for building lots
but wo knowof live poisons whodesiro
building lots threo ot whom would
put up improvements at a cost of not
less than 15000 and tho other two at
a cost of 2500 making the aggregato
amount for circulation sav 20000 up
on which taxos would bo levied
Again wo ask tho question Would
it not bo business to open this strcot
now Another thing which is of in
terest to tho city and a reason why tho
Btreot should bo opoucd now is that
Afr Bigstaff proposes to convoy to tho
city 50 feet from the present terminus
of Sycamore to Winn street to widen
Winn street 15 feet and also to convoy
to tho city Vino street running through
his proporty cast and west the con
sideration being tho grading and mac
adamizing of said streets Any busi
ness man would 6ay that it would bo
i imbusinesjftfifitt not to accopt jsuch a
W proposition whQii it is a lact tljat mucn
k v sgrounds havo cost hocity in
P al money almost as much as grading
and macadamizing these streets
Again tho cost of constructing a
street at this timo with freo metal and
laborors anxious for employment
would bo much less than it may be
again for years to como In tho face
of all theso facts it is good policy tor
tho streets to bo opoucd now
As in regard to tho grade it is al
most useless tor us to speak Our
present streots aro living illustrations
of tho inadvisabillty of poor gradp
It requires more metal to keep tho
streots in repair wo aro continually
changing grades at additional cost and
besides they aro unsightly and lots lo
cated on thorn aro worth less than
they otherwieo would bo No person
would prefer a lot on a pooily gradoJ
strcot to ono on a railroad grade ovon
should it cost tlo prico of the lot to
grade tho street Wo beliovo that a
City Council will carofully weigh all
these matters and will now open tho
street according to tho proposition bow
