OUR CITY PAEK. Some FactM Xliut make a Stroiijr Argument for the AMKenilily J'lai). "No part oT the City Park ground should be sold, ' said a citizen yesterday "It is not too large now and it would be too small if part were sold. Besides I will show you that there should be no necessity for resorting to such an extreme method. There is one feature of the Assembly plan which I believe has not been suggested. The earth taken from the lake territory can be used in filling up the other ground as has been suggested but the point I wish to call attention to is that the size of the lakes can be dependent on the amount of money secured as the lakes are beautiful and cost little more to make many or large ones and in the future years they can be filled up to make ground for other improvements. I also favor the drive along the river. This does not mean a race track as some have inferred but a beautiful drive. But for the facts. In the year 1865 the city purchased of John P. Usher fifty-eight lots in what is known as Ushers addition, lying between Fifteenth 'street Seventeenth street, Smead street and the old canal. This ground was bought for the purpose of establishing a public park. Since the purchase the city has taken no action toward the improvement of the grounds as a park but between the time of purchase and the year 1887, the city sold three of said lots. In the spring of IS87 the city exchanged twenty-three of said lots with Sarah Richardson and Ninah Simpson for ground on the South bank of £4 river between Eleventh and Fifteenth streets. On the 20th-day of April, 1887, the city, by ordinance, passed by a unanimous vote, dedicated all the ground owned by the city on the south bank of Eel river between Tenth and Fifteenth streets as a public park. The following words appears in said ordinance, to-wit: "Donated and dedicated to a-nd for the uses and purposes of a public park, and to remain as a public park forever, to he known as Riverside park. 1 ' The council did at the same tide adopt the following: "That the proceeds derived from the sale, exchange or lease of all lots now owned by ' the city, John P. Usher's addition, shall te set apart, donated and used under the order and direction of the common council, of the city of Loganeport, for the purpose of improving, beautifying or maintaining Riverside park in said city, and for no other purpose whatever." The number of lots owned by the city at that time was thirty-two; appraised by appraisers appointed by the circuit court at the sum of $7,945. The council did at the same time adopt the following: "That city marshal, street commissioner or street foreman be and he is hereby required and ordered to have deposited on Riverside park all the dirt removed from the streets, alleys and gutters lying and being between the Wabash and Eel rivers, and fron such otber portions of the city as may be deemed advisable by the street committee, said dirt to be deposited upon such portions of Riverside Park as may be designated by the park commiUee." This has never been done. It would seem that Mayor Cullen's interest in the park question should secure on .obeying of this ordinance. The city has transfered four of the thirty two lots reserved for the park improvement to the school-trustees and should collect the value of them and turn it over to the park fund. It has paid Daniel Coridon $1,000 in lots for work on Seventeeth street. This amount should be turned over also. The remaining lots can be sold for five or six thousand dollars giving ample opportunities for city officials who want to sell park lots to exert, themselves. A fund of eight thousand dollars thus raised, with donations of §5,000 more from citizens will give us a beautiful park which the city would be proud of. I believe that some,of the East End lots could be -exchanged for work on park if they could not be readily sold. There is no doubt but that the Common Council .will stand by their record and place in the hands of the Park Committee or Park Commissioners, the'pro'ceeds from that donation, a portion of which ought to be available at any time, as some of said lots have already been disposed of. Let every citizen be given an opportunity to assist in this matter' of donation, and an equal amount raised by the citizens as can be derived -from the city donation will go a long way, if not do all that, will be necessary to be done at the present. • The plan as suggested by the Trades Assembly seems to be a good one."
