Many urge the erection of a building costing at least $25,000. confident that the difference between the amount realized from sale of the park and the- maximum figure stated can be easily raised by private subscription. The prospect of the trans fer has reached such a stage that plans for the new structure are already on exhibition. FIREMEN TO BE ON GRILL Charges Against Four to Be Heard Before Civil Service Board.
