that the plan should be revised In its entirety ,and Instead of putting 75 to 80 per cent., of the amount in the construction ' of one station, to arrange to build at least four stations in four different 'sections ' of the city. This, they believe, will meet - with the hearty approval of all the citizens and will spread out the spending of the money in four places instead of one.. The county 'commissioners' also believe that Is exactly what the voters intended when they favored the loan. ; "Mr. Yeager Insists that the station at 5th and Penn streets, which calls for shower baths, ; and - which the county 'commissioners objected ; to, shall be built as he says, with shower baths and all, and declares, that it doesn't matter what the commissioners say, it is going to go as he say. This lets the commissioners out. of the paying of any part of the bill, but they were sure that the loan called for more than one station, and the evidence on , the ballot proves that they knew what they were talking about. , .'. . "If many of the unnecessary things are cut out of the station they propose at 5th and Penn streets, and it can be erected at a cost of, say $20,000, there will be $40,000 left for three other stations in other parts of the city. This will give $13,333 eacl for the other stations."
