An office for the construction company wlH continue close to the curb and the entrances to the comfort station on the pavement at 6th street will be used for the workers who will then begin to equip the place." MAYOR'S LAST KICK. "The cost of the maintenance of the comfort station will begin today," said Mayor Stauffer, who has assum ed a belligerent attitude toward the construction of the station from the beginning. "It is estimated that 120 working days will take six months time, counting out Sundays and holidays, during which time the extra traffic , officer w'll be on duty." The mayor was reminded that the street will not be closed this long, and that the excavation will possibly be closed In less than half that time, HE'LL HAVE TO PAY. "Then say until the fence comes down," corrected the mayor, "an ex tra traffic officer must be on duty, The expense should be charged to the operation of the comfort station, but I suppose that I will have to pay for it from the regular police salary item."
