Tbe idea of putting in a 10 inch sewer pipe to drain the stores and adjacent buildings, seems more like boy's play than the work of level headed business men. I have a 9 inch drain from my house alone, the trap of which will fill up every year 01 two and necessitates digging up to relieve It. There is no property owner, owning property abutting on Third street, which-is expected to be drained by this sewer pipe, who would think of putting in less than a 0 inch connecting drain pipe, and to make connection with the sewer r pipe in the street would necessitate cutting out nearly the whole side of the 10 inch pipe. After going to the great expense of digging the trench would it not have been wiser to nave put in a 10 or IS inch pipe, when = the cost would only have been the difference in the cost of ihe pipe? I am not complaining about public improvements, but have always f ivored them, but I do object to the waste of public money. Yours respectfully," THOMAS A.
