say: "Yes, beautiful indeed, but it

the most beautiful city dn tho world."
This can be accomplished, and done
so easily that, outside of the satis

There will be more fireworks- at
the meeting of tho city council to
night when tho special committee on
investigation of tho character of
work performed by tho Warren Bttu
llthlc company in tho laying of the
concroto curbing and gutters upon
Winter street, makes its report.
This committee is prepared to roport
adversely upon tho acceptance of tho
work, on ,tho ground that tho sand
gravel and concrete, are of such in
ferior quality that they will not
bind sufficiently to guarnnteo a per
manent Improvement and will rec
ommend that the contractors bo not
paid a cont upon tho contract price
until the whole Job of ovor a mile
of curbing and guttor on both sides
of tho Btreet Is roplaced with a bet
ter character of work.
This special Committee, appointed
at tho last regular mooting at tho
solicitation of tho property owners
along Winter streot against whose
property tho cost of tho Improve
raentMS assessed, is composed of'Al1
dormen Lachmund' and Greonbaum.
They made investigation of "the
work complained of and found that,
although tho Job has been comploto
for over six weeks, tho curbing and
gutter crumbles and falls almost ot
the touch of tho hand or a kick of
tho hool and they attribute it to tho
sand being mixed with dirt which
will not permit tho concroto to form

There is also trouble brewing
over the character of tho same kind
of work which is being or has been
porformed by Contractor Walter
Pugh, of this city, on North Capital
street, as a result ot which It Is .un
derstood that Ovorsoer John Jeffer
son, appointed to loot after the In
terests of tho property jowners in the
making of tho street improvement,
has resigned his Job nnd refuses to
havo anything further to do with tho
matter upon his own responsibility
nnd that Frank B. Southwlck, who
Is superintending tho work of Im
provement on Winter street has been
selected to go ahead with the work
on Capital street.
Tho property owners on Capital
street, It is understood rose up In
Gato cement which Is being used In
tho performance of " the" ''concrete
work upon that street was of infer

Jefferson refused to go ahead with
the work, if that quality and brand
of cement was continued in use, but
it Is now understood that tho.prop
erty owners hnve withdrawn their
