Below wc publish 0 letter from A.
S, Benson hearing on 11 hard stir
face street to connect with Lombard
street on the Portland side.The need
of such a thoroughfare ns, Mr. Hen
son points out, is very great. The
hard surfacing of Dawson has been
discussed to sonic extent, hut noth
ing tangible has resulted. There is
much diversity of opinion among
the properly owners concerned as
to the width this street should be.
Also the Portland Railway Light
& Power Co. is a factor to be con
sidered. Council has been disposed
to leave it up to the property own
ers to work out a solution, but it
seems they are not interested ennug
to push the matter to a head. There
fore, If this street Is to be improve.'
by hard surfacing, it Is apparent
that council must take the initiativ
by deciding the width the street
should be and passing a resolution
providing for its Improvement.
the assessed valuation of the prop
erty will not stand for the improve
incut let it go as fur as it will and
the remainder can come Irom the
general fund or from private sub
scriptious. The futility of longer
leaving the matter with the proper
ty owners lias been fully exempli
fled, Council must offotd the solu
tion. It is better to take the "bull
by the horns" than to pull his tail.
It condemnation proceedings are
necessary, lei condemnation pro
ceedings proceed. The Portland
Railway, Light & Power Co. will
not, wc feel assured, stand in the
way of progress. It can be de
ponded upon not to clog the wheels
There is no need of further delay.
It is now time to push. If it is
found impossible or impracticable
at this time to improve Dawson
street, Jersey is the next "best
bet," but Dawson is the logical
thoroughfare for u direct highway
to Portland. Council has a duty to
lerform that should not be shirked.
Procrastination is to no purpose.
Action is needed. Mr. Benson owns
the finest and most costlv residence
in St. Johns. His letter follows,
and it speaks for itself:
Editor St. Johns Review: I read
J four paper regularly, and there
s one thing of great iniort
mice to St. Johns which I have not
seen discussed in it, and it docs not
Kcm to be considered by the ma
jority of the. people of as much im
(wrtance ns it really is. This Is
the importance of a paved street
connecting St. Johns with Portland
The crushed rock streets now used
in St. Johns are better than dirt
roads, but not very much better.
In this country, where it rains as
much as it does, a rock or gravel
road soon wears out, and at its best
u wagon docs not haul easy on it,
lcsides the wear and tear on wag
oii.h and horses is very great. When
it comes to automobiles, these streets
are just about impassible, at least
six months each year.
I have assurance that before an
other winter arrives, there will be a
pavement on Lombard street which
will coutiuect with Killiugsworth
avenue. This will give continu
ous pavement from near the bridge
over the North Bank cut into Port
land. There will still be three or
four blocks in St. Johns to connect
with pavement on Jersey street.
This should be done at the earliest
possible date, as with the many
beautiful building sites St. Johns
has, it is a shame not to have bet
ter roads, when it is such a short
distance to connect up. With our
"rotten" street car service (it now
takes 50 minutes and longer to go
nine miles, i.e., nine miles by street
car track), and our mud roads, we
cannot expect people to come clown
here and build nice homes.
With a paved street all the way
to Portland, an auto can easily
make the trip in 30 minutes. Also
consider the difference in hauling by
wagons on a paved street, as com
pared with a mud road.
It will probably De too much
