Wants Mass Meeting
Editor Review: As thcroscems
to bo so much misunderstanding
among many well meaning people
regarding proposed park sites,
due to some misconceived ideas
and misrepresentations deliber
ately made for the express pur
pose of poisoning the public mind
agninst the truth, I suggest
that wo have a well advertised,
well attended meeting, cither in
the city hall or high school au
ditorium, and there let the truth
be known, for it is tho truth that
makes us free.
Tho story is being freely cir
culated that one of the recom
mended park sites is a worthless
steep hillside, directly in front
of my place and that I had the
same recommended so as to pre
vent a river view from being obstructed.
For information of those who
nro reporting or giving credence
to these stories, permit mo to
state- That tho Western Cooper
age Co., a corporation, owns tho
land between my place and the
river and that tho same was
never thought of, nor considered
for ono moment by tho commit
tee: That tho proposed park site
extends from near Mr. Thur-
mnn's to a point soutii and west
of John Edlefcsen's and not in
tho same block to mine with
street extended. That no part
of any proposed park is in front
of my place and that tho ono
tendered by Mr. Stearns, which
embraces the Allen tract and
some of his, Is tho only one whoro
some birds or animals could ho
kont for benefit of tho children.
There Ib as much or moro lovol
land in tho Allen-Stearns tracts
as in tho Jaeger or Cnplo tracts,
besides the tender embraces a
road way to tho dry docks for
tho benefit of tho laboring men
of the city, who now have to
pass over private property on
their wny to labor. I wonder if
the laboring men of St. Johns
are to receive no consideration
whatever in this park location
yVhon tho Panama Lanal is
completed six times as many
ships will pass up the river as
now and that will mean six
tunes as much labor at tho dry
docks as now, provided the same
aro opened up, and that would
mean home employment, homo
work, and Incroasod homo In
dustry. Give us a public meeting so
the truth may become general.
