We are not “ knockers,” and I

I who are advocating paving and

and violate their oath which they
had taken to stand by the city
charter, the opposers would boy­
cott the business men who were
on the council.
That looks to
me like a very serious threat to
hang over business men who are
conducting an honorable business
in our city and depending on
their business for their living.
Then another prophet arose,
Mr. Kane, who said that while
he was not effected by the pav­
ing of Second avenue he saw
what was coming.
He saw in­
tersection paving forced in and
the awful result o f the work that
would be done by the council.
I do not know how he got the
vision, without a shadow as
large as a man’s hand; it is sure­
ly a new revelation to me.
I do
not know o f any such work be­
ing attempted and the city char­
ter does not give any authority
for such cruel and inhuman
treatment, but this man can see
it coming.
I still believe the council will
stand by their pledge to honor
the city charter, and if the peo-'
pie want a change, they will
have to change the city charter.

men who in the face o f threats
and hisses would stand true to
their pledge and vote accord­
ingly. I have heard the council
criticized for voting a resolution
to pave without a petition to
pave being first presented. This
was done by request and a feel­
ing that the streets acted upon,
especially Pacific avenue, were
sadly in need o f repairs, leaving
it with the people to say whether
they wanted the paving or not.
This is no departure from that
done one year ago, or the right
to do.
First street was paved
without a petition, at least I
never heard o f one, and none o f
these people claimed any injus­
tice was done.

owners had the right to object if
they wished to.
I am sorry for criticisms, but
even that should be no barrier to
