The fact that the city agrees to pay a rebate of Bve cents per square foot for each foot of permanent walk built according to the regulations of the city. Increases this desire, because it greatly lessens the cost to the individual property owner along whose residence such walk is built. This city has sunk hundreds of dollars in repairing rotten board walks and building new ones, which require renewing- every few years. If a complete system of permanent walks can be built, which will last forty or fifty years, with little repairs, and at about the same co»t as plank walks, the sooner permanent walks are built the better. Alderman Platt, Chairman of the Streets and Alleys Committee; has found a vitrefied brick, of which permanent walks can bejbullt for_30_cents_a running^ foot. ThisIs very"ch6ap, and the cost to the property owners Is very slight. Mr. Plait offered a resolution in the Council last night, authorizing the building of about thirty blocks of this walk on streets where the board walks are about worn out and need rebuilding. He also offered specifications for building this kind of walk. The matters were referred to the Streets and Alleys Committee, to report upon at the next meeting. Street Superintendent Palmer made a report on the condition of about thirty-five blocks of sidewalks in prominent parts of town, the report showing them to be in very bad condition. It is not safe to have snch walks In our city, where the least accident is liable to result in a damage suit, nor it does not seem to be wise to sink large sums of money every year in patching up these walks. The best thing that can be done is to build permanent walks as fast as possible. Asa permanent vltrefled brick sidewalk will be a big improvement to the properly along which it is built, and as the cost is so very small to the property owners, no doubt most people on the streets affected by Aid. Platt's resolutions will want permanant walks built soon. Mr. Platt's resolutions are not to be understood as meaning that such walks are to be built at once, but are but preliminary legislation necessary to accomplishing the improvement, whether begun this year ov some other time; also, to learn the sentiments of the public in the matter. —The Rock River M. E. conference has closed its annual session, which was held at Ottawa, and the appointments have _beeu_ made, The only change of pastors In this city is at 4th street church; Rev. J. B. Robinson, D.
