EXPLANATION OF MR. BLAIR.
Telia That Bine Prfnta as to Levee Track
Promoter F. P. Blair, of the Ter
minal company, stated in conversa
tion with an Argus representative
yesterday afternoon, relative to the
operations tne company secits to un
dertake in track connections on First
avenue near the foot of Seventeenth
street, that the blue prints showing
the location of the proposed tracks
are somewhat misleading, not, as Mr.
Blair maintains, in misrepresenting
the rights acquired by ordinance, but
as indicating that the desired track is
to be further north than it is really de
sired to locate it. Mr. Blair insists
that it is far from his inten
tions to seek rights on the
levee once rejected by the
council, and that the switch would
barely cut the corner of the brick in
tersections of Seventeenth street.
Mr. Blair also declares his purpose
to carry out in good faith everything
a - . I ........
ne nas agreeu iu m iue uiau
sewer extensions not already made.
and that bevond thit he will do
nothing without specific understand
ing with the mayor and street and
allev committee, although he stoutly
maintaines that he has a right to re
sume operations next Sunday morn
ing if he felt so disposed. Mr. Blair
bases bis authority to mane ine con
nection on First avenue by ordinance
by authority of the council and by
sanction of the state railroad anu
The matter is one that demands the
most scrupulous consideration on the
part of the city, and no encroach
ments upon tne newiy construcieu
levee should Ikj countenanced under
any consideration, as the position of
the council and the people generally
has bcea fully stated on sucn propo
sition, and is understood thoroughly.
The Arol-s believes that in holding to
the position I epeatedly outlined of pro
tecting the river front Mr. Blair will
be denied none of the rights that be
long to him. But those in authority
should bear in mind that there is a
responsibility resting upon them in
handling tne case.
There was a little stir in the vicini
ty of Forty-sixth street yesterday af
ternoon over the impression that the
Terminal company was planning an
other coup in that neighborhood, but
it proved a false alarm upon investi
gation. The fact that Mr. Blair's
moves are so cioseiy whichcu i mciu.
ly a compliment to his shrewdness
of which as a railroad promoter he
should leel very proud.
