To the Honorable Common Council of the City of Seattle,

Your petitioners represent to your Honorable Body that they are residents and property holders along and in the vicinity of the street now known and platted as Lincoln Avenue running from View Street to Denny & Hoyts Addition, that the same street before reaching Denny & Hoyts Add is short for a distance platted as Vanderbilt Ave. That all of said Street running continuously North from said View Street to Denny & Hoyts Addition is in reality a continuation of Kentucky Street which is now well known as such. That there are several other Lincoln Avenues and Lincoln Streets in the City of Seattle, and that the said name causes confusion, wherefore your petitioners pray that the name Kentucky Street be made to apply to all of said Street which is in reality a continuation of Kentucky Street from the present terminus of Kentucky Street at View Street to the South line of Denny and Hoyts Addition, and that the name Kentucky Street be made the official designation of said street.

To the Hon. Mayor and Common Council of the City of Seattle

We, the undersigned members of the School Board, of School District No. I, having learned that one Richard Pritchard, has made application for a license to establish a saloon on Jackson Street, do hereby protest against the issuance of a license to said Richard Pritchard, and base our protest upon the following grounds, amongst others;

I. That a School is soon to be established in the neighborhood, where said saloon is proposed to be opened; that not fewer than twenty-five children will attend said Public School during the coming year.

That the presence of a saloon so near to the Public School, would be detrimental to the best interests of the neighborhood.

II. That said Richard Pritchard was indicted in the Spring of 1884 and convicted of keeping and maintaining a house of prostitution in the City of Seattle. That undersigned are apprehensive, that if license for a saloon is granted to said Richard Pritchard, that this place is likely to become a rendez-vous for lewd and disreputable characters. To authorize or permit such a place to be established, within a stone's throw of the Public School, would be disgraceful in the last degree, and would be to surround the children, with influences the most vicious and baneful. We therefore, in the interest of the children to attend Public School, protest against granting of a license to Richard Pritchard, for the opening of a saloon on Jackson Street.

To the Honorable City Council:

The Chamber of Commerce having carefully considered the matter of further bonding the city for the purpose of extending our sewerage, would respectfully represent to your honorable body that in the progress and growth of our city the time has now arrived when it surely seems wise that before further indebtedness is incurred a cafully considered system of sewerage should be planned so as to effect the best sanitary results for the city as a whole, and equitable distribute the financial burden throughout the various parts of the city that receive the benefit.

The chamber respectfully submits the following for your consideration as a plan, which, if adopted and adhered to as the settled policy of the city, would result in great good to the city and promote its future upbuilding and prosperity, by assuring the most judicious expenditure of money and on a just basis.

The chamber recommends that a temporary sewer commission be appointed, composed of two engineers (one of whom shall be the city engineer) and an honest, clear headed business man, making a commission of three, whose duty it shall be to carefully scan the system of sewerage devised by Benezette Williams, revise and extend said plan to date, list and describe by course and location such sewers as must serve as "intercepting mains," which in their judgment should be constructed within the next two years; also to recommend the priority in which such "intercepting mains"

Such commission to determine and name the diameter of a sewer, to be known as the "unit sewer" and to define "unit sewer" to mean a sewer of such diameter as in absence of an "intercepting main" on same route would be necessary to carry away the sewage of the abutting property; but because of an "intercepting main" on same route, is rendered unnecessary.

All sewers tributary to the "intercepting mains" prescribed by said commission, and within the limits of the districts -which districts would be determined by the topography of the different localities- and not listed as "intercepting mains" are to be known and designated as "laterals. No sewer hereafter to be constructed entirely at the expense of the general sewer fund, but the cost to be met as follows:

First- "Intercepting mains," sewers thus listed by the commission to be paid out of the proceeds of the sewer bonds, such bonds to be redeemed, in part by taxation on the entire city and part by the assessment of the directly tributary property by the following method of distribution: When any "intercepting main" is ordered built, there should be prepared and filed with the city treasurer an assessment roll charging against each lot or parcel of property directly tributary to said main, in preference to any other exist-

Such assessment to be met by the plan of immediate payment or by short time district sewer bonds as determined by owners of a majority of the area within the assessment district. In case bonds are issued, provision shall be made for partial or entire
