Votes Against
Purchasing: Boat
Adopts Resolution Demanding
That The Port Commissioner
Do Not Purchase Boat Under
Heated Discussions by Speapers,
for and Against Proposition;
Committees aMke Favorable
At a meeting held In the Cham
ber of Commerce rooms Tuesday
evening to discuss the advlslbilii)
of purchasing a boat for the To
ledo port, those present went on
record by a large majority to not
purchase the boat that is now be
ing considered by the port com
missioners and in a resolution de
manded that no action be taken
by that body. The resolution also
threatened injunction proceedings.
(Following the passage of the reso
lution some discus-ion was had as
to whether any boat should be
purchased by the Toledo port
which resulted in, a motion being
snade and carried that ''The Port
of 'Toledo shall not buy any boat
' without first submitting the prop
' Qeition to the -taxpayers of the
port district."
Many Speak on Subject.
IMany speakers wre heard during
the evening for and against the pur
chase ot the boat.' Among those who
spoke for the proposition we:e J. W.
Parrlsh, president of the port commts
sicn; Attorney W. U. Waterbury, G'.iy
Roberts and B. F. Jones; while among
the speakers against were Peter Fre
derick, Lieut W. K. Patterson, Hanj
Olson and A. T. Peterson. At times
the discussion became heated as the
speakers attempted to show why To
ledo should or should not purchase a
boat to haul oargos to and from tli9
Jonet Delivers Oration.
The most dramatic talk of the even
ing was made by Mr. Jones of New
port who, ta making his appeal to the
meeting to go on record for the put
cnase of the boat, stated -that while he
was not now a taxpayer of the local
port, nevertheless, he believed that It
would be a great asset to this section
to have a boat operating. He stated
that the people of this section had ex
pended great sums of monoy on mak
ing the port navigable by dredging
and building jetties and that now they
were getting no returns for the money
expended. Ho aaid that if Toledo had
a boat operating It would be an easy
proposition to get the government to
appropriate money for further devel
opment of the channel. He classod

Those opposing the purchase of a
boat at this time are of the be'.lef that
recognlzation can be had from the
government without necessitating the
expenditure ot $50,000, the purchase

ing President McCluskey, called upon
several outstanding committees for re.
ports including the cleanup committee
and the committee appointed to pro
vide entertainment and rooms for the

The committees were complimented
for their work and discharged.
The meeting also went on record as
favoring the publication of the min
utes of the City council and port com
missioners meetings for the benefit of
the taxpayers.
The vote adopting the resolution for
bidding the port commission to pur
chase tlie boat, according to the sec
retary's report, was as follows, 63 tor,

payers, the secretary's report gives
the number being present as 65, many
having left the moating after the
adoption ot the resolution.
