I'esplte two hours of ilisrusslon and de-
li.'ile however there was little unanimity
of opinion shown hy the property owners
present and as a result when the naeet-
IiiK adjourned shortly before 7 o'clock. Us
only actual accomplishment was ths ap-
liointment of a committee which Is to
interview Mayor Campbell with a view to
securinn a postponement of action by the
city council on the original petition for
widening Main street to a width of 60
feet and to try to secure better terms

W hile any number of plans were sug-
gested by various property owners at-
tending the meeting that which seemed
to meet with the most favor wss one
which calied for the widening of Main
t feet to 5o feet from McKinney avenue to
Hell avenue and then T0 feet from Bell
avenue south the city to share one-third
of the expense of the widening and pav-
ing and to reimburse property owners for
:ui encroachments on property lines.

embracing the plan agreed upon In their
conference with the city officials which
is to be presented to Mam street property
owners to displace the present petition
which is In the hands of the city council.
II. K. Mai Gregor who suggested the
plan for making Main street it) and 55

mittee but staled that Inasmuch as he
expects to be caiit'd OiU of the city within

the faculty chamber at the institute this

now wished to retract their signatures
from the document
SIGNERS NOT OPPOSED
TO NEEDED IMPROVEMENTS.
The petition drawn up by Mr. Wolf and
his committee' states that while tlu- sign-
ers are opposed to the proposed plan for
increasing Main street to a width of tiO
feet they are not opposed to paying a
reasonable sum for needed iinrroYeinenl
on the st.eet. and the louni il is asked to
give a rehearlnK on the original petition.
Mr. Wolf stated that it the siunera of
the second petition who hold 101; feet of
frontage and who had likewise simn.d the
firs-t petition were permitted to withdraw
their names from the first petition and
If Captain J. t". Hutcheson. who owns a
frontage of 125 feet on Main street and
who signed the first petition could be in-
duced to withdraw his name in a similai
manner the original petition would fail
to have its majority by uiiproximatt'lv tin
Captain J. ". Hutcheson then rose io
explain his position in the matter and
stated tint while he had signed the first
petition he had subsequently come to
know many thinns about it which would
hav probably altered his position In the
"However'' continued Captain Hutche-
son "I will not haul down my flag and
ask for the retraction of my signature un-
less It is demonstrated that the proposed
plan will prove an absolute Injustice. 1
am not prepared to withdraw my action
but I ask serious consideration of the
question as any pteclpitate action is sure
to promote litigation.'
MAYOR REPLIED TO
STATEMENTS IN PETITION.
Mayor Campbell then took the lloor at
the request of Chairman Desel and took
occasion to reply specifically to the state-
ments contained in the petition prepared
and Introduced by Mr. Wolf
"1 have had no knowledge" said .Mayor
Campbell "that any deception was being
practiced in securing the signatures to
the original petition. There lias been no
attempt at log-rolling on our part and if
fraud lias been practiced it should be
snown at once because fraud viliatey
"We have had nothing to do with the
petition. The lirst we knew of it it was
tiled In our office with the signatures of a
majority of property owners. We issued
the customary notice to the citizens to
Me their objections but only a few peo-
ple who represented not over Iimhi or llt)0
teet of property were represented m Die
"1 would personally like to sec lh.it
pavement and 1 want to tell rmi right
now that there is not one thing that ou
could do to make Houston better than to
rue Main street to Beflaire boulevard.
It wever that is strictly my personal
opinion and as 1 am a representative of
the people 1 am here to do whatever the
majority of the people want.
"If anybody signed bis name under a
misapprehension. It is up to them to
withdraw It themselves. I am not pre-
pa;ed to say how the council would I;
i.pon anyi one taking his name off the
petition. The council lias no choice
about this liittrr of pavement. If a
majority of the people ou Ihe street isk

pay their third or half of the l(si of

say about it.

STREET OR CHANGE THE NAME.
' However 1 am convinced thai we
might to do one of two things. We ougnt
to either carry out the proposed Im-
provements for Main street and make it
worthy of its name or we ought to take
Hie name away from it."
Ueplying to the objection raised Ly
some of the citizens that Ihe shade trees
on Main street would be destroyed by
Ihe proposed widening of the struct.
Mayor Campbell stated that the it y was
leady to pay for moving the trees

O. L. Norsworthy took the floor to state
that he not only agreed In all that the
mayor had said but that t tie mayor had
not gone far enough In his statement to
suit mm. in a short paper which he
lead. I T. Norsworthy advocated t lie
widening of Main street but he asked
that precautions be taken to add to the
beauty of the utreet and to prevent its
abuse In any way by the establishment of

Mr. MacfJregor condemned Indiscrim-

him he had made a personal Investigation
