In the first place, I Commissioner of Finance, W. B. Jones, says the bonds for the water- works and other public improve- ments recently voted have 'been okayed by the state, and are -now available, and that it will be only a short time until the 'big "doings" will 'be on in full 'blast. Only a short tltne ago the city was able to make the -purchase of a quantltiy of pipe on which they saved the city several thousand dol- lars, and naturally they are very proud of the deal. Mr. Whltaker, who Is to supervise the public works here, and Mr. Deal, Commissioner of Public Works and Property, went to 'Birmingham, Ala., and- inspected the pi-pe and not only found that It that it stood more than the test required by law and that on the purchase they could save money. The Commissioner of Public Works and Property, P: H. Deal, was not found at-the city hall but It was stated that- he was some- where on Main street where the "shell holes" are being repaired very much to his satisfaction. It is understood that the reason the work has not been done sooner is due' to the fact that the crusher here has -been tied up in litigation for some time and that it was im- possible to get the-Tock any earlier. The mayor was found at his desk very 'busy, not from the fact that he had had many cases of violation of the law In his-court this morn- in'g, but due ''to the fact that he had on his desk, quite an accumula- tion of correspondence. In a city of this size the mayor is -burdened with all kinds of com- munications, and very often re- quests are made that are impossible to comply with. One1 of the things that is worrying the mayor Is'the tangle between the gas company -'and the American Refining Co., tout the mayor states that people need not worry for he is not going to suffer .any- thing to -be done that willr cause the people worry.' "All In said, "things b-re going smoothly, and I am sure that the city Qf Ada ..is just as good government as able' to, administer."

The movement, known as -the "Save Fifth Avenue" project, started sev- eral years ago and has just now as- sumed tangible form.

Fifth avenue for years has borne the reputation of being devoted to retail shops of high and most di- versified types. Into this region of imposing .business buildings and exclusive merchants, -as time went on, the cloak 'and suit 'manufac- turers, made their way. Soon the sewing machine bade fair to el-mi- nate the yard-stick. America's prom- enade of elite trade and style was being transformed into a factory district where noon and closing hour whistles vied with limousine motor horns. These cloak and suit manufac- turers, however, most of them pa- triotic Americans and jealous of the welfare of New York, got together an-d. co-operating with a. group of men known as the "Save New York formulated plans for the erection of factory buildings 'in a" less exclusive section of the city. Carrying the idea of co-operation still they purchased many pieces of real estate, totalling 000 square'feet in the Seventh ave- nue section., and have obtained op- tions on square feet Plans now contemplate the con- struction of four co-operative fac- tory buildings of sixteen stories each with a combined floor space Of square-feet at a ..yearly rental cost of approximately 000, about 50. cents a> square foot as against a square foot which many of the manufacturers are noif paying.
