William Comnilloner Will Consider Protest luulnst Main Street Permit It is understood that the licensing board will grant a hearing this week and pos sibly this evening to the Second Congre gntional church committee and others who wish to protest against the granting of a license in the premises formerly occcupicd 'by the I larniscb brothers at 307 Main street application being made this year for the site by II Mondor Charges will 'also be: brought it is understood against a hotel it being claimed that liquor was sold to a minor on a Sunday recently and that enough was sold so that the youth became' intoxicated The Second churchoft which Grace church is a branch will oppose the granting of the license believ that the large number of licensed places already located in that section of ward 2 will amply care for the sale of intoxicat ing liquors and that any increase in the number of places increases deplorable eon 'ditions mid that the liquor evil should be curbed instead of being expanded They will also probably call attention to the fct that because of the protest of two other clergymen one in 'ward 6 nnd the other in ward 1 that a change in the petition for a location was made and that if the saloon was not wanted in wards 1 or 6 it certainly should not be placed in that section of ward 2 which is already honeycombed with saloons The charges relative to the illegal sale of liquor will also be strongly brought to attention it is stated Besides the com mittee from the Second church others have been interested and will enter a protest The commissioners will take under consid eration that the site applied for by MrMondor is not a new location having been oceevpied for the sale of liquor for a number of years past and recently by Hitrniseh Bros hut if the protests fromt'j other churches have been given weight there would seem no reason not to give weight to the protest of a third church Grace church nre particularly concerned us by their situation st

the street railway commit tee of the boa rd 'of trade and officials of the SpringfiekL and Holyoke street railway companies to be held some time in May relative to the proposed extension ot the Springfield tracks over the Ghicopee river into the territory around Sheridan and Montgomery streets The matter which involves the acceptance on the part of the Holyoke company: the plan for the Springfield corporation to cross their bridge in the alls whs5 dis cussed in detail at a similar conference held in Mayor office last January but the companies desired to reserve de cision at that time until the question of the 'Western Massachusetts trolly develop ment so vitally interesting to both had been threshed out in the Legislature It was thought at the time that the trolly question would be settled by May but it is now believed that if it is not the fate of the bill can be known far enough in advance for the Springfield company to plan definitely for Shcridan strect improve ments before the end of the month Although the trolly representatives did not offer any undue encouragement for the project at the previous conference hope is stirring now that the Western Massachu setts development scheme threatens to go over another year on account of the pres ent prejudice created bv the New Haven road investigation in Boston The alls citizens will benefit by the improve ment arc taking comfort in the thought that the Springfield street railway com pany' and the financial corporations 1 back of it will be more ready to consider small improvements like the one proposed when their resources arc not taxed by the larger scheme in Berkshire Of course nobody is making predictions at this early date The schedule problem confronting the two companies which' would use the bridge at the alls under the new arrangement and the proposition to charge nn extra fare for rides over into the Sheridan street ter ritory advanced by the railway officials at the last conference may prove rocks for midable enough to split all future negotia tions Other disturbing elements also en ter into calculations among these being the fact that some citizens of prominence on the south side of the river arc' openly opposing the scheme on the grounds that a through lino from Springfield through blast Springfield is greatly to be preferred and ill bo move needed within a few years Nevertheless it is that pub lic sentiment in the alls favors the ex tension into Sheridan street and the com mittees in charge of the end of the negotiations arc going to leave no stone unturned in bringing the project to the construction point before the summer is over No word has yet been forthcoming from the rnilway'Acqmnanies con cerned regarding the next oonfcrcm and it is not believed that much consideration of the details of theextension has been given by them as y'ct But the alder manic and hoard of trade conmuttecs arc ready to act nnd expo 1 that theconfer ence will be held within a month as the informal agreement qntered into at the last meeting stipulated No date has been set as yet for the May mooting butthe local committees are to get in touch with the rjtilwny officials

Chicopee showing that': the entire cost of putting in' treated wood blocks over treated planks of the most dependable kind would be $10912 This sort of a pavement according to the mayor who produced the figures os a result of his own personal investigation would last the city for about 25 years and would he preferable to the layers of new planking which the aidermen showed nn inclination to vote for at their Monday night's meet ing when the mayor was refused the priv ilege of the floor on the objection of Al derman Dion The mayor's figures show that plank pavement would cost about $5000 and would hardly last the city over three years without extensive re pairs The mayor is of opinion that the biirden of the initial expense is worth assuming for the sake of the larger future saving While he regrets that repair of the bridge Jooms up so much as a matter of necessity at i time when the school department nnd? the highway de pnrtment are clamoring for numerous thoroughly appropriations
