ICnowliig that the Coimncii iisulersesiiecliilly are Inlen-sttsl In this Mihjcct, n i-eK)rlercallisl iqmn Mr. Kehwagerl to glean some Informa tion on tho subject. He was found lu very jilensaiit iiiitri-s lu tho llond block, corner Twelfth rind () streets, and nlso willing to en lighten tt' scrlls) ou the matter of parks nnd iHiiileviinls. "Would it not lie diillciilt to projierly plncn theM) (inrfts at this stngeof develoiiinontt" "No, lisUssl, this Is tho wry time when the NS)plonf Lincoln should seriously consider tho subject ol parks uud pink boulevards.

Capitalists would locate hero on nixsiunt of the ls'imtlfiil residence sites nml tlm np)ortuulty to enjoy riding or diivlng, As a natural Betiieuco, thoy would llnd many channels of investment. I would havo these iMMilevurds located mid planned In anticipation of fully ilfty yearn growth, but would contract nnd improve them only 5'iJdt iKxyun necesry. Ilut Hie people of Lincoln should net soou In such n nml tor tieeH nro very scarce, and Isoldes Hiillliieiit timo Is necessary for their proor gniwth and development ufler being plmibsl. It is wry foolish to let tho city grow in u haphazard style ns nt present, since in the future It will cost many times as much as now, Tho lsisitioii of tlm city, Isith as mi (slucu- tloual center and capital, demand that steps Is) taken Immediately to lienutlfy It, uud by that means still further advance her material irosHi'ts, She ought to lie to the state and thu west, what Washington Is to the nation. Ily thus early enhancing tho material beauty of your advantage, the Kople of tho state can always jwlut with prldo to Lincoln as Its cap ital. Now is tlm timo to settle ujsm its future plan of Improvement, which is tlm course calculated to bring to It added life and thrift, wealth uud culture. ' Wiiat should lw tho llrst steps necessary In such undertakings!" A mutter of such vast Interest and Imiiort- mice should ho made a subject of careful lu vestigatlon ns well us thoughtful consideration nud should cnll out every citizen of ambition nml sound judgment who ought to carefully select n few of thuir soundest mid most cultur ed intellect to net us u coiniultts to make such Investigation tqiou the ground Itself, uud Into the subject relating to such Improvements. They should proceed ndvlstslly and thorough ly, making their lejKirt tangible, clear, ami comprehensive. Such a rcsrt would present tho fact which might lead to further actions tlio maturing mnl crfcctlng of plans for adoption which would then lead uud govern further Improvements, to conform to such general plans, Tho improvements, ns stated before, could 1h carrhsl out in time ns the city's growth, advancement and ability would Justify. Mr. Sehwagerl's extensive reputation as u landscape urch!tcct,uuil the manner he handles such subjects is sunk-lent to command resi-t.
