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 the contract. 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 netlled. _ Tlin - < o Glenn I'p.
