Motion carried by Coffin and Peery voting yes, Fenwlck vot ing no. I do not wIbIi to take Issues with Mr. Fenwlck but simply to give my viows as they appear to mo. You will see by tho motion that was passed that tho city is to receive 2000 yards of gravol It does not say $1000. After a very careful investigation I find that It haB cost the city from 70 cents to $1.00 per yard to quarry out and crush . Now striking an average of 85 cents per yard (which I think is fair) you will seo that tho city is getting $1700! for its plant, which I think Is a good round price for it. You will also see by tho mo tion that tho matter of interest can, bo taken care of for tho season that tho city can demand Immediate delivory if it sees it to do so.
