Park Board Issues Order to Lay
Gas Mains.

A contract was let yesterday by the park board fro laying gas mains on North Cliff drive, and a resolution adopted asking the city to prepare to take care of the 159 gas lamps that are to be installed on that thoroughfare.

There are stretches of the boulevards that either are unlighted or that are illumined at night by means of obsolete gasoline lamps. The park board is having gas installed. In the interest of economy at the time the park board made the boulevards it did not incur the expense of putting down gas mains. Accordingly laying mains now means the additional expense of repairig the boulevard lawns and crossings.
