" A committee to look up the matter
of a public ilay-groun as suggested
by the Epworth League was called
upon for h. report but had nothing to
offer, owing to the fact at the mem

to assume successful control of the

absolutely must be attended to at

farmers and trouble with the state
health officers. No money is avail

the city commisson must submit a

Councilman Hans wants to unload
the burden as It now stands upon the
shoulders of the new officials and
let them work out their own solution.
Hans, in his remarks, brings out
strongly the fact that the city is- tired
of the hap-hazzard methods which the
present council has pursued in hand

was corroborated by the statements
of Capt Lewis, who followed him, we ;
assume that it is a fact. Councilman

with a resolution, the sub
stance of which! is, that owing to the
fact that a recent fire has rendered
the Kendall hotel untenable, unsight
ly, dangerous, Et Cetera, and owin,
further to the fact that a city fire
ordinance prohibits repairing, the

made that the time be made 60 days,

pipe sufficient as an outlet. The
one now in use is eight inches and
will not suffice to handle the partial

tank. The discussion of this matter
was resumed later in the evening,
but amounted to nothing but a farce
and was participated tn principal!!
by two members who furnish a fair
specimen of vaudeville but never say
anything. The question as to wheth
