THE CITY COUNCIL.
All members of the city council
were present at the regular meet
ing held last evening. After
lengthy minutes of a previous ses
sion had been read and approved,
a communication trom the chief of,
'the fire department was presented
to the council. In this report the
chief stated that he had made an
examination of the fire alarm sys
tem and found that the boxes
needed cleaning and some minor re
pairs. When this work was com
pleted he would make a through
test of the system and make a full
report.' The council instructed the
street commissioner to straighten
up several poles along the line of
Messrs. Day and VonGoetz asked
permission of the council to put in,
at their expense, a walk across
Spruce street opposite the Otten
steiu block. The council granted
the permission conditioned that the
walk be properly laid and kept in
repair by the above gentlemen.
The contract between the city
andtheGutta Percha Co. for 750
feet of fire hose was signed by the
mayor and clerk. This hose is to
be paid by a warrant issued on the
1.6 levy and drawn July 1st or
15th, 1896. Thomson objected to
the contraqt being signed but his
objection was overruled.
Bills werd approved as follows:
Saml. Adams, making coal bins for
hose houses $6.10; Jos. Murphy
work on streets, 9.00; Wm. Rowland
work on streets, 18:00; Pat Roddy,
work on streets, 18.75; Peter Chead
ell, work on streets, 9.75.
Fikes moved that the city attor
ney be instructed to draft an ordin
ance providing that all saloons close
at twelve o'clock at night 365 days
in the year. The object in this was
to prevent Toung men from having
a loating place at hours when they
should be at home. A member said
that some of the cigar and confec
tionery stores -and billiard halls
kept open until the wee small hours
of the morning and suggested that
they be included in the ordinance
with the saloons. This suggestion
was embodied in the motion, and
the latter carried by a vote of fiw
to one, Day voting in the negative.
The attorney will prepare the ordi
nance and probably present it at
the next meeting of the council. It
will probabl' meet with some op
position when up for passage.
There is a question as to whether
the council has the right to regulate
the closing of any -business other
