STREET GRADES
Editor Express :
Sir,—Jt is a maxim in municipal allairs that the wishes oi
the people fnust prevail. If
any member or members ol llic
city council do uot intend to
abide by the wishes oi the people ill lliis question ol street
grades, which question was entirely, reopened by the plain
text ol lhe motion which passed the council without opposition at its regular meeting on
April nth, then, as was remarked by one ol the speakers
al the public meeting in the
Pavilion early last week, the
ratepayers will know wioi
course to pursue. At this
meeting which was largely attended, those present expressed
almost iiualiiuioiislv their i ,,u
faience iu the competency ol the
city engineer lo deal with this
matter of grades in the way
ciliuliilcd to best Serve the interests of the city as a whole
Lc-l mc briefly reler to a letter which appeared in your issue of April :9th, over the signature of R. E. Macnaughteii
The writer says, "I entire!) aj-
ree with the idea that it would
be a grave mistake to reopen
this question," and expresses
teutiou on the part of the city
his disbelief as to any such intention on the part of lhe city
council. Assuming lhat no desire exists on lhe part of the
writer to whitewash any mem
ber ol the council, il he will
carefully re-read that "somewhat obscurely worded motion" the mists which seem to
cloud his understanding as to
its import might possible be
dispelled.
The writer, in his comment
upon sonic ol the happenings al
the public meeting above referred to, asserts that "the first
speaker strongly criticized the
council for its proposal to depart from the report of Messrs.
Clements, Dawson and Cleveland." A glance at the report
ol proceedings on lirst page of
your issue of even date with his
ietter does not bear out his assertion. It will lie remembered
that the speaker's only reference to that report was to
draw attention lo the fact that
the last two members of that
board are Land Surveyors, and
who constructively, had    nude
no special study of side hill
grades in cities. The criticism
of lhe council was evoked by
the attempt of that body, in its
motion above referred to, to
set at naught the opinion ol the
best authority ou side hill
grades obtainable, probably
(Whose opinion  on lile iu   the
city engineer*! department, was
given liom maps, profiles, etc.,
Iorwarded to Seattle by the
predecessor of our preseut tn
gineer whose knowledge and
information upon the subject of
grades, especially side hill grades, was esteemed so highly that our city council of a
year ago sent the city engineer
to Seattle to spend a week in
consultation with linn and the
re-opeiiuig of the entire question ol grades and the advocacy ol a system ol grades diametrically opposed to those of
lllis eminent expert, not lo
nn nt 1 i.n the opinion of our
present engineer, whose recommendations shuii have been crystallized into bylaws, which,
the Act says "Shall be Registered."
If auy ratepayer wishes to
satisfy himsell of the utter incapacity of these laymen ol
such pronounced opinions, to
deal intelligently with this important question, he need but
familiarize himself with the
sickening details of the third
street muddle which culminated
in a series of inonstrosilies
called by them "Easements,"
and which cannot be lound in
the business section of any progressive city in the world
There is nothing possibly,
that so oflends the eye of the
siudeiit or the passing traveller
us a departure Irom the recognized rules of construction in
streets or buildings, and the
distortion ol street intersections which the attempt to
combine two separate systems
would surely produce, is indubi
table, a reflection of the char
acter of those who are respoii
sible for them.
In conclusion, I wish to remark that any attempt to
change the Third street grade,
including its proper benched intersection with Lonsdale Ave.,
(rom plan passed and adopted
without an objection from any
citizen, will be resisted to th.
full. Yours truly,
A. JT. SARGENT.

a simpk and easy way loi

with hoi water; in the other

lime. Then till up the barrels
and Vuli have a simk .solil'ioll

Inieiit lor llus straining. Si ^l
bil up these barrels with water
have a line brass gauze stram-.-r
Over your spray pump bairc-l
(bliiestouo will not corrode lllis
size of gauze so readily). Slir
up your solutions thoroughly
and turn on the cut-oils, holding lhc two hoses together.
Ulieii you are ready to start
into the orchard lum oil tne
cut-oil and regulate your water
so that the barrels will be Idling when you are goue.
in the use uf the prepared
slock solution of lime surplur
which is now manufactured ami
recognized as a standard lung,
and insecticide, many people 1
add lime before using to heat
and increase its caustic properties In such case it is not
wise to put the lime inlo tlu
spray tank. It should bc placed 111 the mixing barrels and
sir,lined into the pump lank.
In the use of the lime sulphur
solution hot water is a most es
sent ml item, and a boiler fitted
fM steam heating the barrels is
sometimes an expensive article.
A rather handy apparatus may
be rigged up by obtaining   one
hundred gallon galvanised iron
oil drums and taking one end
out of them and building a
brick   lire   box    beiualh   thelll.
These drums may be purchased
liom the chemical works at ■'
reasonable figure. There is
nuiih louiil for improvement in
lluse lines alld the practical m
geiiioiis orchardist will git tht
results.
