ALBANY, QA.i THURSDAY AFTERNOON, JANUARY 11, 1906.
SIDEWALKS WILL BE 18 FEET
WIDE ON WIDER, AND 17
FEEET WIDE ON NARROW
At a speoial meeting held on Wash-
. jjngfton^ street yesterday afternoon, the
,coim"cU i decided to widen all the side-
walks in the city. The walks on the
Streets running east and west will be
made 18 feet 'wld« and the walks on
the streets running 'north and south
will be 17 fe^t w'de.
■ At the conclusion of the special
-meeting Which was helA in the conn
ell chamber yesterday afternoon, the
council adjourned , to Washington,
I street -where a .conference was held
w^th,City-'Engineer Wilcox and an in-
spectiow of certain street work was
It was found that the levels of the
sidewalks on pine street between
Washington and Front streets, would
necessitate the cutting down of the
south walk and the building up of -the
north walk. The new walks would be
considerably lower on the south side
and considerably higher on the north
Sidy than the present floor levels of
the buildings on that street.
Capt.' Wilcox advised that this con
dition could be largely relieved if the-
walks were made.wider, allowing a
wider range of grade in the' walks,
and at his suggestion the council
decided to make the sidewalks 18
feet wide on Pine and' all other par
allel streets and'"to make the walks
17 feet wide on all intersecting
streets. ’■■ '*■ '
The width of the paving o’, these 1
walks is not to he increased, but a
space will be left- on the outer side
of the walk for a grass plot, In which
the shade trees and telephone poles
will be placed. Many advantages for
this plan were urged, one of which
was the great saving to the city when

portant Matters tp Be Considered.

ern Cotton Association began a three
days’ sessidn here today with a large
representative attendance from all
the cotton growing states. The asso
ciation was organized one year ago
here when cotton wns selling at six
cents a pound.
Many Important matters are to
come before this meeting, among
them being a proposition to Oiold the
balance of last ’'ear’s crop for 1B
cents. A decision as to the acreage
this year will l>e made. Congress mil

and it is likely that Hnr da Jordan
\Vu; be re-elected president.
President Jordan was given ah ova
tion when lie appeared. After an Invo
cation President John M. Parker,
of the Cotton Exchange, made an ad
dress of welcome, which was respond
ed to by \V. L. Foster, of the Louis
iana railroad commsisioti and an ex
tensive cotton planter.
President Jordan’s address covered
a review of the work during the first
year of the association. He recom
mended that the proper solution of the
marketing problem lies in moving the
crop slowly to meet the legitimate de
mands of the spinners. To accomplish
this ho said adequate storage ward-
houses should be built and negotiable
receipts Issued, underwritten to guar
antee grades and weights, to mnlce
them absolutely" a safe collateral. He
urged also better organization and
better haling of the product.
