TIMBER STACKS ON STREET.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir, — A street laid out between Stuart and St. Andrew streets, parallel to the railway line, has for years now been gradually taken possession of by a. timber company until now it is nothing but timber stacks, which pedestrians have to get through as beat they can. It appears the City Council have not taken over this street, and the Harbor Board seem to be content to leave it, but surely they could got some revenue from it and make conditions of some kind for its maintenance. What should be done—seeing that outside of the main streets there ia.no street that has more passenger traffic, it being the short road to the railway, and wsed by all Northenders—would be for tbe Council and Harbor Board to combine and get material before it is all finished from Dowling street and form it. lam sure that a more necessary work was never undertaken by them. Hoping, that something will fee done, and if any of those aspiring to the mayoral chair move in the matter I cau roromise him plenty of votes from Northenders. ©onedin, October 28.
