LENHAE1T, a condi'.ion requiring re-paving, such as Plttsbnrg street between Faretts street and Lincoln avenue, re-paved but a fewr years ago. .Further, an excavation in a.paved street sufficient to lay a conduit will affect tne paying to a greater width than 36 inches, or at least it will not be possible, in making proper repair thereto, to confihe the work to that narrow limit and make a good jobVot It. That section of the ordinance should be changed so as to cover whatever, .width of re-paving may be required to permanently restore the paved surface of the street to. conformity with the cross section prior to the excavation. On streets occupied by street railway tracks it might not be unwise to include the whole- space between tbe curb and one foot outside the rails in the section to be re-paved .after laying the conduits. The same provision should be made to apply to streets unpaved at the .Urns the conduits are laid therein. . This Section should be further amended - so' as to-require the com- jpanv to compensate the city not only 1 for the first re-paving, where conduits are laid in advance of re-paving, but for all subsequent repairs and re-pavings, and. for the paving and alt subsequent repairs and re-pavings, during the life of the franchise, in streets unpaved at the time the conduits are laid. Limiting the compensation to one' paving on unpaved streets raid to one re-paring on re-paved streets is unfair and inequitable "Inasmuch as it permits the company to have practically free rental of the streets, after paying the initial cost of paving or re-paving. Compensation for the right to use the streets should continue during the lite of the franchise, which requirement could be met by obllga- ting the company to pay its share of the cost of the original paving, and- i all subsequent repairing aad re-pav- Limited, the remark was made thai.' 10,000 of our wounded boys from the front .'n Prance were already back here in our hospitals in Connecticut and New York. The man who made the remark said it ^as a positive fact He said ho had his information Irom one of the doctors in a hospital in Connecticut. He refused the name of the doctor and refused to give bis own, as he said he didn't want to get anybody in trouble, but he insisted I that the government was keeping the ; real truth back-from the public." ' Both these stories are entirely untrue. There have been no such losses among the troops of the Rainbow Division. Up to the 1st of May, some weeks after the statement was made in Charlotte, there had been killed in all the divisions of the army only 345 men. At the same time all our wounded amounted to 2,500. And this included submarine casualties among our troops. . An investigation showed that the lady who spoke in Charlotte, an English woman by birth, was a fervently Navy.
