OSTER ROAD PAVING
PLAN IS PROJECTED
City Would Co-operate With
ROADBED IS TOO HIGH
Property Owners Request Work Be
Hushed at Meeting Called
By Mayor Baker.
Plans were formulated yesterday
for co-operation of the county board
of commissioners with the city coun
cil to bring about improvement of
Foster road from East Fiftieth street
to Eighty-second street.
Foster road is under jurisdiction of
the county commissioners, although
the portion of it which it is proposed
tc improve is within the city limits.
From time to time the county has
repaired the macadam roadway by
applying crushed rock to the sur
face. As a result the roadbed is con
siderably above the grade of streets
Joint Meeting In Called.
Following a showing of necessity
for the improvement made to him
by a delegation headed by F. I. Mar
shall, vice-president of the Mount
Scott Improvement club. Mayor Baker
yesterday called r joint meeting of
the city council and the cunty com
missioners to discuss the' proposed
improvement. Property owners with
in the district are willing to bear the
costs of grading the street, after It is
brought down to the proper level, and
to install the curbs as well as cost of
the necessary sewer improvements
and the hard surfacing of the laterals
in the district.
The county has already appropri
ated $42,000 to be used in hard surfac
ing the roadway, although it was con
ceded at the meeting yesterday that
to pave the roadway without bring
ing U down to the proper level would
be a waste of funds.
City Commissioner Barbur suggested
that the municipal paving plant lay
the hard-surface on the roadway and
that county equipment be utilized in
bringing the road to the proper level.
This action, he contended, would tend
to reduce the cost of the project,
which Is now estimated at $225,000.
Improvement Be Extended Suggested.
Plans for the project call for im
provement from Fifty-second street to
EijThty-second street, but County Com
missioner Holman suggested that it
be extended to Fiftieth street in order
that the traffic might utilize the
hard-surface already laid on that
This suggestion was approved by
Commissioner Barbur. who announced
that he would immediately file pro
ceedings to carry out this suggestion.
Mayor Baker explained that the im
provement of Foster road had first
been halted because of inability of
the district to bear the expense of the
improvement; then came the war,
the mayor explained, which prevented
the carrying out of the project.
Owner Want Improvement.
Property owners of the district
are now ready to accept the Im
provement and have petitioned the
city council to rush the project to
completion, if the county commis
sioners will bring the roadway to the
proper level and hardsurface 18 feet,
which comprises an ordinary county
road. After this is done, it is pro
posed that the city take over the
road as a city street and thus save
the county from maintenance expense.
County Commissioners Hoyt and
Holman both agreed that the im
provement should be made, and were
willing to co-operate with the city
and the property owners of the dis
trict. City Engineer Laurgaard and Coun
ty Engineer Eatchel will confer to
determine the costs of the grade work
and the laying of the hard surface
and a second meeting will be held
next Tuesday to complete the plans.
Mr. Marshall represented the prop
erty owners at the meeting.

Graham and . Miss Meadows, with
Lieutenant St. Lawrence were going
over a mountain road to a mine
owned and operated by St. Lawrence,
the girl's horse slipped and went over
the bank. At the risk, of his own
life the lieutenant-qolonel was able
to save Miss Meadows from- death
although the two horses went over
the 600-foot precipice.
Captain Graham and his fiance
thereupon decided to wait until he
recovered from his injuries to be the
best man and so yesterday they were
married in th presence of a large
number of society friends and army
Captain Meadows gave his daughter
