suggestions which may be of value in finally solving the subway problem." In the second communication however, he writes: "I desire also to call your attention again to the fact that it is the power and duty of the commission to determine all plans for the location of subways and the order of building the same subject to the approval of the people." If the mayor had gone the full length and admitted that his first communication was a poor understanding of the subject, and that he was willing to submit the whole subject to the commission as the act provided, a different situation would be now presented to council. The fact is, however, that his original proposition still persists and seems to be a pre-determined purpose to submit this fall to the electors a definite bond issue in the sum of $3,500,000.00 for a subway in W. Superior ave.

There is too much uncertainty, too much lack of frankness in this matter for the council to proceed in the way requested. The council should take no steps now that would incur uncalled for haste in submitting a bond issue in the sum of $3,500,000.00 for W. Superior ave. subway this fall. W. Superior ave. is the widest street in America. It is occupied with four street railway tracks and has room on each side of the street for two lines of vehicles, making in all, eight lanes of travel. Clearly, a subway in Ontario street, E. Superior ave, and Euclid ave. is far more pressing than a subway in W. Superior ave.

A year and a half ago the subject of subway approaches to the Superior high level bridge was before council and discussion of the subject occupied public attention. There were advocates of a subway to the

square, but the cheaper method prevailed for a subway ending at W. 6th st. The decision made at that time should be worked out before any steps are taken to extend the subway to the square. The high level bridge should be completed and the subway approaches used in order that the effect on traffic may be determined.

We should take no chances in delaying the completion and use of the Superior high level bridge. The mavor, in his communication to council on June 15th, states, referring to the proposed subway "The improvement could be made at the present time at much less cost than hereafter in view of the fact that the work on the new bridge approaches is now well under way.' There is only one meaning to be attached to this statement and that is that the use of the subwav anproaches to the bridge should be delayed until the subway could be extended to the square. This half considered statement the mayor has corrected in his communication of July 9th, but the correction serves to drive home the conviction that

whole project has been only half considered and clearly the council should take no chances in delaying the use of the new high level bridge.

While it is felt that the city of Cleveland should be the last agency in these parts to take any steps to prevent the continuation of our normal activities during times of war, nevertheless, it seems unwise to start a public improvement of the magnitude of the subway at a time when it difficult to obtain materials, such as steel, and to obtain labor This argument seems to have adder force when it is applied to W. Superior ave., in which there is an uncompleted subway structure, the effect the

use

of which upon

traffic is unknown, and when it is considered that it is the widest street in America and the least congested important main thoroughfare in Cleveland.

No complete study has as yet been made of terminal subways in Cleveland by any public agency and no estimate of the cost, under normal conditions, has as yet been made. Of course, everyone in Cleveland is for a down town terminal subway at the earliest possible time. If

the

executive department desires, through its

engineeding department, or through any other existing public agency at its command, to make a study of the needs of the city in this direction and will present an intelligible and complete report to council, basing thereon the request that a bond issue be submitted to the people, your committee does not hesitate to say that council will unanimously and quickly act in favor of the project. It does seem to be the part of ordinary wisdom that the people of Cleveland should know what the subway plan is and what the cost will be before the constituted government of the city of Cleveland shall voluntarily surrender from its own control, as is proposed by the above ordinance, a question of such public importance, involving, as it does, the payment of substantial taxes.

The finances of the city of Cleveland at the present time are in the most desperate condition they have ever been in and the lack of frankness on this subject on the part of the city's administrative officers is not doing anything to help the situation. The issuing of statements explaining the alleged amount of money to have been saved does not alter the fact that the city of Cleveland now owes $1,500,000.00 on emergency notes that must be renewed every six months and an additional deficit of at least $1.000.000 is being piled up during the current year. The city seems to face the necessity of authorizing

an emergency bond issue in the

sum of $2,500,000.00 and the council seems to face the necessity of submitting that proposition to the electors this fall. Clearly, the council should know exactly what this deficit is, (and it has requested this information from the director of finance on May 21st, 1917) before any steps should be taken by the council that may lead to the submission to the electors this fall of any bond issue. Furthermore, if any improvement bond issues are to be submitted to the electors this fall, it does seem that the opening of Chester ave., Carnegie ave. and other streets is far more pressing as 2 relief to traffic conditions, than is the construction of a subway in W. Superior ave.

Your committee realizes that council will be charged with acting from petty political motives in opposing this ordinance, Of course, the question is a political one, as are all questions of government, especially those involving the payment of taxes. Your committee is content to present its objections to the subway plan proposed by the mayor and to have them compared with the two communications from the mayor on that subject.

Respectfully submitted.
