Alderman Golledge brought up the
question of opening up the street
crossings over the A. & C. railroad.
The mayor read a letter he had re-
ceived from W. C. Perry vice presi-
dent of tho road at Kansas City in
which that gentleman said tho road
wished to opon up all tho streets
they possibly could but did not
agree with' the council In their de
sire to open every stroet.
Mr. Gollodge was of the opinion
thatthe council had waited long
enough. He said that the city coun-
cil had voted unanimously to open
thoso streets after ton days. If tho
railroad failed to do so and ho con-
sidered that they ought to do It.
Alderman McCharen thought coun
cil ought to do something toward that
