All misunderstanding In relation to the
slag paving on Ix > wcr Uroadwny was re
moved for the time being at the meeting of
the Joint committee of the board of super
visors and the city council last evening.
Colonel linker had raised Ihe question nt
Ihe session of Ihe commlltco n few dajs
ago that the work was being Improperly
done because Ihe slag was being put down
on the frozen roadbed Ho also Insisted
thai llio lime limit of December 15 should
be enforced. Since them , however , he has
been Investigating the matter and he voted
with the rest of the Joint committee to
extend the time for the completion of the
work until June 1. He Insisted thai Ihls
lime should be slrlclly enforced , nnd that
a penalty of $25 n day should bo fixed
for failure to comply with these terms of
Dr. flarstow presided last evening , nnd
all the members of the- Joint committee
were In atlendance cxccpl Supervisor Auld.
George F. Wright was present to represent
the motor company , as they had contributed
$1.000 to Iho Improvement. Mr. Wright
was In favor of letting the contractor go
ahead with the work nil winter as the
weather pcrmllled , and urged that the
tlmo. bo extended until Juno 1 for the final
completion of Ihe work.
Mr. Wlckham stated that ho had been
delayed In getting the slag along. In
stead of gelling ten carloads a day , as he
had contracted for , he had only been able
to got three or four. Ho hail no object
In delaying the work , as the roller he was
using cost htm $7 a day , and ho was as
anxious as anyone to get llnougli.
Colonel Daker stated that ho objected
to the manner In which the large pieces
were- being put In , as this would make them
work lo llio lop of the street nnd prevent
It from packing properly. The other mem
bers of the Joint committee were perfectly
willing lo consent to any requirement thai
Colonel Ilakcr might ask as lo lime for-
fell , nnd the matter was all satisfactorily
