Servey and other loases. west of the river, with the city mains, has been reached and an agreement embodying the terms approved by all concerned will be drawn up at once and the work may proceed as soon thereafter as desired.

The building of the line through Acres' park, better known as Mineral park, will result in an improvement in the park, both to the benefit of the owner and to the public. In consideration of the right-of-way to be granted to the city by the owner of the park, the city is to place an electric arc light in the park and furnish free sas and light for the park well aiid house. This expense, Mr. Acres has been bearing, though the public, at least many, have enjoyed fr«'edoui of the beautiful grounds and water for a lung time. In addition to the right of-wny through the l^ind, .Mr. Acros will grant the city the i^lghf' to plaro a regulator In tin' park liit a point tie city may doHlgnnte.

The light will help the police do this and .make the park look better and more comfortable for visitors. The agreement for the right-of-way was submitted to the council at a meeting last night and It was ordered that a foriual -agreement be drawn and made ready for signature at once. EIGHT PAGES.
