THE CITY FATHESS KKET.
Thecity council held a meeting
last night, the first since the 19th
day of Auerust. The members
present were Tikes, Tborason,
Johnston anL ;Scott Iddings was
out of town and Day. was probably
The first business transacted was
the granting of certificate of fire
man's service to T. T. Keliher and
R. A. McMurray.
The Third ward hose company
presented a r eport giving the
names of the active members, of
which there are twenty-four.
Mayor Baker stated that he had
driven over the city a day ortwo
ago and found twenty crosswalks
1 1 t
wuicn neeaea to oe Tepairea or
replaced by new walks. The mar
shal was instructed by the council
to have this work performed.
It was reported that there were
many sidewalks in the city which
were in a dangerous and disgrace
ful condition, and it was the opin
ion of the council that property
owners neglecting to repair their
walks should be promptly brought
to time. The marshal will proba
bly interview interested parties.
Councilman Johnston, thought
the time was ripe for the extension
of the city limits, and made a mo
tion that the city attorney be in
structed to commence proceedings
in enlarging the city limits accord
ing to the survey made several
years ago. The motion received
but three votes, and was therefore
lost. The matter will be brought
up at a future meeting of the coun
cil. The marshal presented a bill for
killing thirty-four dogs, and this
led some one to ask if the marshal
was pursuing the tactics of the
Omaha dog-catcher. Clerk Schar
mann assured the council that the
marshal was turning the scalps of j
the slaughtered canines over to him
and that the ground in the rear of
his office resembled the back-yard
of a tanning factory.
The enforcement of the awning
ordinance was thoroughly dis
cussed, and it was decided to have
the city attorney bring another ac
tion against Judge Hinman.'

tention that owing to the similari
ty of the name assumed by a local
organization of women who stvle

We desire to inform the public that
said organization has no connec
