Upon his suggestion, the matter was referred to City Attorney E. F. Mee for investigation and consideration. Attorney C. E. Sheldon, representing N. B. Ridge, brought the matter before the city council In a communication, in which the complainant's case was set forth, and in which the threats of a mandamus proceeding and a damage suit were made unless Immediate relief is assured by the method he has outlined. Attorney Sheldon's communication to the council follows: "Since going over the matter of the conditions in the cast and west alley in Block 18 in Wallace's Addition to the City of Sterling, we have not been called into conference at the alley, as was stated by the Mayor would be done, but I have had a call trom commissioner Hendricks, who has stated to me that the city would be willing to put the alley down to the new grade established by ordinance, and deliver and furnish free the brick requirec to pave "he same, ihe property own- prs to furni&h the sand and the labor necessary to lay the brick, this to be done by u voluntary agreement. "To begin with, this would not make a hatisiactory pavement, to lay the brick on dirt. And in the second place, to secure a voluntary agreement of this kind is quite impracticable. I think where there are so many property owners Involved, some of whom would not be interested in the pavement. "Furtnermore, biich a plan would call for an immediate cash outlay of the entire expense, and it would cither have to be advanced, or someone would have to guarantee the payment of u. A lot of work would devolve upon someone in bringing about .such an agreement, -- looking-after-the- collection of the moneys, and adjusting' the equities _as_a_naj:meni "I suggested that a concrete pavement be put in by a special assessment, tn vftiich case the cost would be distributed over a period of ten veal's, and the ainoaut payable each vear by each property owner would be very nominal. I am sure that such a pavement^ would be one tli&t would be satisfactory, and one that most of the property owners would not think ol having taken out. if once put in. "As two of the objecting property owners are the caut* of the present condition which is damaging Ridge's pioperty, I think their objections to; such a program should not be considered. As the city was a party lo the. transact ion which materially changed the coati.siioiis existing in the alley in order to accommodate and Llewellyn at the expense of Ridge, I think in all fairness to Ridge, who is oue of tiie largest taxpayers iu the city, tlutt the city thould light a serious vtraig by putting to sucb a pavement at once by tpecial asse&s&ieat. It will cost Ridge &s much iu proportion as auy other owner, aud he would uot TWO STERLING MEN IF AUTO ACCIDENT ARRESTED IN IOWA Charged for the second time within lew than a yrar with driv- tip, an automobile while Intoxicated.
