SOMETHING RADICALLY WRONG
Alameda Avtnut Improvement Too Ex
pemive for Street Says Tea Surveyor
Slow ia Finding it ut Say Lebeck
and Hanson. .
"I don't know whether thi wan
ha a gKiuige agaittit thee people 4
or not," eald Councilman llamton 4
4 hint night referring to City Kur- 4
veyor A. H. Tee and the Alameda
avenue luiprovement. "I don't 4
want to ay that, but there la 4
aomcthing radically wrong. Here 4
thia matter ha been hanging fire 4

4 at the lent utuAient with a report
aaying the etrcet will not bear o
expensive an Improvement, It ,
tu-ema to me he niilit have
learned thia a long while ago."
For an adjoumei c.lon, the meet
ing lat night differed from the uwual
run of thing and inxtead of the
monotony which generally character
ire aiich gathering, the atmosphere
leam-d to the fHH'laciilnr. Kot until a
few minute before adjournment, how
ever, did anything extraordinary occur,
and then it nation came in rapid euc
eelon. An effort w made to itnpoe
a lioene on the how in town for the
regatta, Councilman Hum taking the
initiative and wa nupportrd by hi col
league, Mrr. Htangcland and Ix-iucn-weber.
Mayor Surprenant, a a memk-r
of the Hegatta company, aeemed to feci
that the argument were reflections on
the work of hi aoiatet and bimclf
and apparently he wa not a little dia
guted. Coumilnian Iturn averred that ia he
waa t retire in October he wished to
leave the body with a clean reputation
and felt that if aome measure were not
adopted to Impose a license on the ahowa,
or at leat, to have the regatta commit
tee make aome request for the waiving
of tht consideration, in the future he
might be tpoken of a one of the "nine"
who permitted thing to run in a slip
shod way. The contention of Meter.
Stangelaml and Leinenwcbcr wa ma
terially the aanie, the former advocating
that the money paid the regatta com
mittee could not lie considered a license
and the latter vouchsafing that he had
already been bit" by aome of the
"rounder" and he felt they ehould lie
regulated. Mayor Supernant accepted
the argument with no imal degree of
disgust and finally said:
"The regatta committee ha worked
untiringly in the interest of the. city.
I would consider inch a license an in
justice and it can only serve to dampen
the prospect of the aflaiMieiug a suc
cess. However," lie added, '"do whatever
yon please gentlemen,"
The license advocate made haste to
explain that they did not wish to throw
any cold water on the regatta, that the?
merely bad the interest of the city
at heart and did not w ish '"to be mi
understood. The matter, finally, was
dropped without any action lieing taken.
City Surveyor Tee' report on the
Alameda avenue improvement was re
ceived and atated that the street could
not atand inch an expensive improvement
and recommended that the street be Im
proved to a width of HO feet instead of
00. Mcaara. Lclieck and Hanson ex
prciscd themselves a surprised at the
tenor of the report, the latter rather
warmly: City Attorney Smith finally
changed the resolution to provide the
re-establishment of the, grade, and to
meet with present condition. It was
