At the meeting of the city coun
cil Monday evening Councilman
Peterson was the only absentee:
but there were lawyers to burn nil
sorts and sizes.
The first business after the adop
tion of the records was a ctition
front Willis Moxon ct ill., for the
grading and sidewalking of John
street front Jersey to Modoc streets.

but referred to the street committee.
At the suggestion of City Kngi-
neer uomiricn a resolution was
adopted making obligatory the car

tuy uiiiciius mm private cm.cus.
An ordinance was ordctcd drawn
at the suggestion of City Kngineer
Uoodrlcli, making the destruction
of or the disturbing of any grade
stakes a misdemeanor.
From Mr. Goodrich came also
the following communication:
"There should be established at

A resolution was men introduced
by Mr. Thompson condemning in
no uncertain tones the present water
system, and in a measure taking
preliminary steps towards a munici
pal plant. Mr. JJrice desired to
jwstpone action ujxm this resolu
tion in order to carefully look it
over. Mr. Shields moved its adoption.
Attorney Vaughn obtained per
mission to speak. He was the
father of this resolution and it was
merely the commencement of the

He proposed a scheme wherebv his
clients could be "hired" by the
citv to put in a proinir, highgrnde
plant and then be "lured" to run it
for a term of years: during all these
years it would be managed by a St.
Johns board of public works, mid at
the expiration of the term the sys- J
tent would be turned over to the
city free of all encumbrance.
This sounded so good (Mr
Vaughn is detieedly clever, don't
you know) that when the matter of
adopting the preparatory resolution
came up all voted for it except Mr.
Ilrice. He explained that he so
voted because he desired time to
In view of the fact that there
is a probability of vacating many
thousand dollars' wotth of public
waterfront it was deemed best to
pass an ordinance regulating the
St. Johns Park
niiinuer in which the vacation shall
be made. This passed the second ' t
reading Kdwnrds and Shields vot- J
ing "no," because they (like Mr. ;
Ilrice) desired to think It over. v
A resolution was then offered, 2!

the vacation of a bit of street which V
Smith Brothers desired to occupy
with their marine and boiler works.
They wished to at once commence
work but, unless they could be as
sured that the council would vacate
that portion of Charleston street be
tween Albany street and the river,
it was rumored they'd not build.
When the motion to adopt was put
Messrs. Shields and Hd wards voted' J
"no." It was carried.
A representative of the O. U it
X. Company, Mr. Kddy, was pres
ent, and gave due warning that he
would soon apicar before the coun
cil and ask for another free gift of
streets so that his road could do
business with Smith Brothers' foun
dry. He merely mentioned the
matter so that it might, meantime,
The jump-off on the newly-grad-
cu riiliudeipuia street was discussed
and there was universal condem
nation of the street since it has
been "improved." Mr. Messenger,
who lives at the foot of the street,
stated that the whole business had
been a detriment rather than a bet
terment to all owners of abutting
proiierty: he was perfectly willing
to pay for an improvement but it
hurt him to pay out good money
and then have his proticrty depre
ciated in value.
There seems to have Itccn some
bad blunder in calculation on the $
street, because the grade is Kteeter
now than lnifore any work was done
upon it. Residents are anxious ;
that some improvement be made
and the street committee is doing
some hard thinking.

hollowed pumpkin would have been
an improvement on tne service tne
greater part of the time.
The committee on re-uaming sev
eral streets had no rejort ready,
Mr. Shields kicked because that
committee was so slow: declared
that a committee should be named
who would act when directed by
the mayor: and would rejMirt some
time within a year or two. Then
someone stated that Mr. Shields
was a nienilKT of that committee
and he was struck dumb!
