Test Case in Court Expected
Over .City Licensing Ordi
nance. Merchants Object
City Attorntey Robert L. Clinton
thinks the merchants of Butte ought
to pay the license fees demanded by
the city without any protest. "They
ought to flave enough civic pride and
enough sense of duty to come
through without a fuss," says he.
But the merchants seem to think
otherwise. At a meeting of the store
keepers and proprietors of business
houses held yesterday, it was agreed
to oppose the collection of the li
censes and test out the ordinance in
the courts. It is claimed that Mayor
WV. T. Stodden has agreed to leave
the matter to the decision of a test
Attorney Clinton. has not stated
when he will institute a suit for col
lection, but that he will start one
seems to be evidenced by his attitude
on the question as expressed yester
"The business men seem to have
no valid reason for refusing to pay
the tax, which the city wishes to im
pose, unless it is that they do not
care to part with the money," Mr.
Clinton said. "The city never need
ed the funds so badly as at present,
and the revenues from natural
sources have been reduced more than
$200,000. The money is needed to
give the very people we are asking
to pay it, better protection or at least
some protection, and unless the city
can find some new revenues, mo-:
retrenchments will be necessary."
A supreme court decision in a
somewhat similar test case emanating
from Missoula, is held by the mer
chants to render an ordinance levy
ing mercantile licenses inoperative.

PAVING ON PARK STREET
An expert opinion as to the rea

Park street failed to make a good
base for the bitulithic pavement and
permitted the latter to buckle under
the strain of traffic was secured yes
terday from City Superintendent of
Public Works E. J. Strausburger.
"The blocks were laid too close to
gether," said Mr. Strausburger. "The
bitulithic mixture which was sup
posed to penetrate the spaces be
tween the stones and cement them
together did not get in between the
stones in sufficient quantities to act
as a satisfactory binder. And in
many places the stones were not
clean, were so coated with dirt that
the cement could not adhere to the
stone surface. Hence, we have the
present condition of the new pave
The work of repairing the areas
in the street which have buckled will
be completed in a week, says Mr.
Strausburger. The work is being
done by the city, but the cost will
be charged to the bond of Fred San
er, the contractor who put in the
pavement last year.
