Aldermen II ts and Jarrell both stated
ycsierday that they favored the proposed
move, but feu that a matt* r *f such im
portsn* should la- thoroughly ill- usset
before t iking action. Aideiman llorrlgan
arid <hat he voted for the r*-rolutlon un
der a mlsapprehnnsion, understanding
that It referrtd only to the square on Itoir
nard street, just south of Broughton. 1
win* h Is almos* entirely surround*-*! by
business houses and public buildings.
"E am not in favor of opening through
the squares generally," said Alderman
Horngan. "and I find that the people in j
my <*tion of 4he city ur generally op- ,
posed to such ii move."
A Herman Jhornan m opposed to th**
move because he Is doubtful of the effect
which such a change in the nppearanc*
of the squares would have and because I**
thinks it would be greatly to the Inconven
ience of the people whose houses front
upon th** squares amt who would be prac
tically shut off from •cress lo the front
of their hou*iw. I** Ing compelled to make
use of th* side streets. Where then* aie
nn*t“ thsn two houses to a Mo* k fronting
the square this ituonventencf would be
¥• ry decided. I
"Th** squares ar** pretty and attractive
nnd In h* proper shape now." said Maytrr
Myers, * and the best thing to do Is to
keep them Just a** they are. Our people
take grut pride in their square*, as It Is
r.ght they should, and any change which
wotnd m*r their lieauty w*oukl be a very
serious loss to the city. I think Aider
man Dixon will find the opposition to his
move very general."
Th** general Impression among many of
those who oppose any change In the pres
ent status of the squares, seems to be
that the proposed change wouM destroy
the benuty of the squares and thus re
move one of the distinctive f* stores of
the city. Alderman Dixon and those who
regard his move with favor say that this
lmpresiuw is entirely erroneous. Instead
of Injuring the squares in any wav. they
say that the result would be to greatly
Increase th*lr attractiveness and to make
them a still more distinctive feature of
the city than they are at present lli
sitrad of decreasing the area devoted to
the squares within each quadrangle, the
griuare jre* would In* consldcijl.ly in
creases! It obviously requires less space
for ons street than two, even though the
one be wider than either of the two. n*l
the rounded corners of the squares now
throw considerable unnecessary spare In
the streets which under the new plan
would b** taken up In the squares The
plan for Calhoun square, which has been
on exhibition In Director Gadsden's off!* e
for several months, shows that by throw
ing out the corners of the squares to the
adjacent property lines on the east nnd
west an* additional area f I!.•>■ square
