The question of erecting a city hall for
Alliance was brought up for consideration
at the meeting of the city council this
week. The report of the committee on
this matter states that plans had beeu sub
mitted for a city hall and that a petition
was to be presented to the council for an
election to vote bonds' for the purpose off
erecting such a building. It was moved byy
Mollring and seconded by Snow that the
question be deferred until the next regular
meeting at which time the council will be
ready to receive such petition.
The Herald is in favor of this project.

for a city as progressive as Alliance to
have its city offices and council meetings

lay respectable quarters may be provided

visitors. The plans as submitted provide
suitable offices for the city officials besides
a city bastile and quarters for the appara
tus of the fire department. Lot 5 in Block
22 which adjoins that on which the fire
house 'stands has been purchased from the
Lincoln Land company for 300. These
