WOOD From Kouree leen made, authoi ative tliat the principal thing in the way of a ina agreement now is. a dif foresee of opinion as to the value of a piece of ground in Central Riverside park, which the traction company has offered in part payment of its debt. YVII.I, LAXD-IIE TAKE.f According to this information, the traction company .would pay the city $50,003 providing the ground In question would be accepted as payment for $13,000 of this money, Some of the commissioners are raid to hold that the property is not worth move than $7,500. . . . The land is a triangular . plot alleged Ly th traction company to contain fourteen teres. Its acquisition hy the city would make possible an extension of the park, the removal' of the y.oo to a more desirable " location :ird tho connecting up of an impor tant lmrt of llie projected park and boulevard system. i:i'or? the parlc property enterei the controvers;,- as an important factor the railway company ha'd offered tho city a cash i settlement of $35,000 ' it is asserted. - Th .Commission has luild- that the payment of $50,000 vould be a reasonable "settlement. 1'OIXT.S At'RKED IPOX. T'oints teiitallv"e1y agl'eed upon ,have reference to the future relations between the city oC Wichita and the Wichita Hallway & Light Co.
