Erjftor St." Johns ftoview: In
a recent Issue of a local morning
paper an article appeared In re
gards to the St. Johns park. The
impression this article would
tfivo the average person was that
the people of St. Johns district
were anxious to have a park any
where in St. Johns, location be
ing no object, whereas tho peti
tion mentioned in the article
was really a protest against the
long delay in purchasing the Ca
pies tract which an ordinance
had been passed in tho council
Commissioner Pier for some
reuBon is now very strongly rec
ommending tho purchase of a
sixty-five acre tract known as tho
Ladd & Strong tract, situated
one mile from the center of the
business section of St. Johns and
nearly two miles from Borne of
The people are agreed that the
Caples tract is an ideal spot for
a playground and park for bt.
Johns, and contains nearly ten
acres. Several thousand have
petitioned the council asking for
this tract, which is in the center
of the school district. I would
like to ask why docs the council
now try to force n large tract of
land on the people in a place that
very few of them can go to with
out the expense of street car
faro and a long round about way
to get there; transferring at
Wall street is the only car con
A very important item inat
must must not be overlooked by
the people of this district is the
large amount or money that will
have to bo paid for this sixty-five
aero tract, the extra expense of
paving streets for nearly half a
mile and also the heavy yearly
expense connected with the up
keep of n sixty-five acre tract of
land used for park purposes, All
this expense must come out of
the pockets of tho taxpayers for
a park and playground that they
do not want. Perhaps in twen
ty -five or thirty years from now
tins sixty-live acre irnct might
bo close enough in for the par
cuts and children touse.butwhat
about the children and the par
ents of today; are they not en
titled to some consideration?
Let us have the tract that the
people want? The Caples tract
is plenty largo enough as it
stands without any additional
ground. Wo do not want a ball
irroiuid. but a playground and
small park where the tired mo
thers can go with their small
children and have a resc for an
hour or two without spending an
hour or two going there and back
to their homes,
A strong and vigorous protest
should be made by the people of
bU Johns against tho purchase
of such a largo tract as is now
contemplated, and demand the
council to purchase the Caples
tract.--A Tnxpnyor, C. K. Hnr-
