Special Election for May 23 on Ques
tion of Issiiinn $300,000 in Bonds
for the Construction of a Railroad
to Blue Ledfle Mine Another Elec
tion Upon Proposed Contract.
Am Important biislaess transaction
wae concluded officially by the city
council laat night when Its members
voted unanimously the paaeaKa ot u
resolution ealltiiK for n special elec
tion on May S3 on the question of Is
suing $300,000 In bonds to enable
the city of Med ford to participate In
the construction of a railroad to tho
lllue !.dge mine, thirty mllo dtatant
from the present tormlRH" of thi
Hullls electric line; and also tn en
acting a charier amendment, subject
to the popular approval of the peo
ple of thu city at said election, provid
ing the means legallr to tako port In
the construction of such road.
At the conclusion of the first read
ing of the resolution and charter
amendment City Attornny MeCabo
suggested that the provision for thn
submission of the final contract to n
vote of the peoule, lnatead ot loavlng
It wholly to the city council, should
Iih Hlimlnated; that he saw in It a
poaalble source of embarrassment
should anyone care to delay the con-
Humiliation of the plan. Ilowuvor, thn
provision was retained.
I .n it; o Audience Applauded.
On the third reading of tho docu
ment each memhar of tko council
voted affirmatively In spporont good
cheer. They appeared to bo roltuvcd
appreciably when the final responsi
bility In the enterprise was shifted to
the shoulders of ihe people, who will
be required to ratify by popular voto
the contract with the party or par
ties who may subbmlt the most rip
provable proposition for the perform
ance of the work.
The people, on the other hand,
Judging by expresaiona thla morning,
are quite willing to assume that re
sponsibility. They will, either col
lectively or through a committee o(
business meu, carefully consider alt
proposed contracts and recommend to
the people, as well aa to the coun
cil, the one that commends Itself
most favorably to them. The coun
cil, also, no doubt, appreciate thla
assistance, for Its members new ap
liear to lie anxious to give the peo
ple full voice and choice in the mat
ter. The only regrettable feature of
the provision in queatlon Is seen In
the fact that It will delay final ac
tion on the contract two or three

the HcMxion. Councilman Margrave.

which, he said, had been uhJhsI to
the coiiniil. "The Bar association ot
Ihe city volunteered to aaaiat In tho
legal work necessary to be lone be.
fore the council could act definitely
on this railroad matter," said tho
doctor. "That assistance waa slow
in materialising. The council waited
for It, because It had been requested
to. It has acted Just as soon as It
possibly could after tho legal papers
were ready, our work tonight shows
that wn have expedited the matter,
so far as our duty la concerned, In
every possibly way. The criticism
that we sought to delay the project
