An article in Tuesday's Jour
nal contains the following rel
ative to a St. Johns park: "Up
to this time we have been con
sidcrlmr the following locations
"At the nronoBcd new liiid
school site, St. Johns, between
Wall street. Central nvenue and
Smith avenue. 23 acres, oonsid-
nrod hv manv to be n very de
nlrnblo locality :or. in lieu of that.
n 32 acre tract known as the
McKenna property, assessed
valuation $38,030, on Lombard
and McKenna avenues."
The former mentioned is at
the extreme southeasterly bound
nry of St. Johns limits, and the
McKenna tract is not in St.
Johns, but on tho other side of
the cut beyond the power house.
Tho sent ment expressed, so la
as wo have heard, scorns to favor
n heat on ess remote. I lit1
people of St. Johns would much
prefer a park more centrally
located, but such tracts are dif
ficult to find, or in fact almost
imnoBsiblo to secure. Ihero

tract, which is situated adjacent
to tho ice plant on Lombard

point this would un''o tbtedly hi

tho purpose. Tho owner Hlatos
that, includimr the Hi reel

be sucurcd in connection, would
comprlao tract of approximate

inclined to tho belief that ten
ncros is amply sufficient fot
purely park pumoMcii, and that
if high school of groaUir capac
ity is needed there Ik plenty ol
room on tho pronont site for en
largement. Others believe ten
acres entirely too small. So in
order to get thu sentiment ol
the peopio of St. Johns in gen
oral a mass meeting or a vole
would bo necessary. It is, how
ever, very doubtful if a tract
outside of St. Johns limits would
be pleasing to our people, he

this money must come from the
