Aud i company attorney Welty the mayor solicitor Engineer superintendent streets the Railroad committee and the Board Public service in the Board room wednesday Avenir the deep and puzzling question a Why is an ordinance an ordinance a was hashed thrashed and rehashed for about two hours. With the exception that both sides seemed to stand a Little firmer for their rights rather desires no particular Progress bad been made. The principal reason for which the meeting waft called was to discuss the ordinance providing that the Street railway company Sprinkle their tracks through the City and discuss it they did. In conclusion the servers instructed attorney Welty to submit a sprinkling proposition to the City within five Days the matter would be put to a test in the courts. Believing that manager Currie is not fully conversant with conditions Here the mayor secured his consent to come to Canton next monday when the entire party will take him Over the City lines to give Hun a better introduction to local property under his control in the Hope appealing to his sympathy to such an extent that . Currie will find some Means alleviating the conditions. Immediately after president Buch Man called the meeting to order. Or. I Welly asked what the City proposed to have them do the sprinkling proposition. A we intend to have you live up to the ordinances a answered Ruch Man. The solicitor then read the ordinance which is merely a redraft the state Law providing that they Are empowered to have the company Sprinkle their rights Way All streets and alleys in the City. It also provides that in Case they do not cof holy the City can do the work contract for it and certify the Cost to the county auditor to be paid by the railway company with other taxes. The right Way was construed to mean Between the rails and the Devil strip Between double tracks. A unfortunately a said Currie a we have very few Devil strips in a i think unfortunately is hardly the word a said the mayor a was you had several opportunities to double track and did no to take a the City does not Sprinkle the Street there a said Welly. A Why is it thut you want us to Sprinkle if it is a Good thing for us it i for the people and they should be assessed according to their frontage. Then again How about automobiles As the ears run Iron All the dust arises from the suction alone while tile autos run in the dirt and raise More a that May possibly be the Case Quot said superintendent Harbert a but Here is the Point when the machines leave the dirt the dust stops while i can demonstrate to you that your cars carry dust and dirt from Harrison Avenue Down As far As the Bridge a Well Tuscarawas Street beyond the paying is in bad condition Quot said Welty a and we have paid several damage suits because people said they were forced to drive our right Way owing to the condition the Side a i would like a dust throwing exhibition a said Buchman a Between your cars and a a in Duke to accommodate you a answered Welty a but the mayor wont let us run fast a Are you Here to talk Compromise a asked Day. Day then asked How a proposition that they Sprinkle All tracks not washed by the City would Appeal to him. A Well i think the City and company will both have to plead guilty to negligence this proposition a said Welty. As soon As the sprinkling was settled the question a by a so extensions _ and double tracks was taken up.
