Tho committee recomeuded that "culvert

last much longer and giv c service much more

pipe as recommended.
It win decided to open the alley one-half

Washington and Mead avenui.
Tho w 055 of all belonging to the street
force was raised 'Si cents per day and teams

Mr. Carey, chairman of the judiciary com

He should have control of all the machinery

Bis Honor then stated that the matter Be rfr
t erred to was the locating of Market street at
its Intersection by Douglas avenue, A peti
tion was then read,signed by several dtlwas,
owning property on Uorth Market street,
asking that the cast side of Bitting Bros' new

than where it is proposed to place it. After

At this moment Judge Ruggles addressed:
bis honor, asking the privilege to make a
statement. His honor for a time enforced
the parliamentary law which makes a mo

batable. Mr. Richey's motion was then
withdrawn, and Healy moved that the city
engineer locate Bitting Bros' corner accord
ing to Bacr's survey. Somo discussion of the
question was then engaged in by ontsjde par
ties, after which, tho motion prevailed. This
disposal of the question pnenicd to satisfy
some and dksatwy others.
The water works committee, then received
a job of considering a petition asking that
the water company extend their mams from
tho corner of Topeka avenue and Eleventh
street to Emporia avtnuo and Twelfth. A
petition by Peter Getto asking the privilege
of laying a sow er pipo eight inches in diame

streets west to the river. Tha gas commit
tee was instructed to review a petition ask
ing that an electric light be placed at the cor
ner of Second street and Lawrcnco avenuo.
Several other petitions of minor importance
engaged tho attention of tho council for some
tune and none seemed to be very highly en
tertained, until finally the clerk
unfolded ono which started" off with
something about Mosley avenue and
tha railroad that it is supposed will
occupy tha same. It vva3 soon detected by
tho crowd and au interesting silenco pre
vailed, Tl's petition asked that tho railroad
not bo allowed the privilege c,.r coming quwn
the avenue ami was signed by a number of
the business men of tho city. It was follow

mooted question. The second gavo a list
of property which would bo damaged by the
road (f it djd pnter p. city tht W4- and
how muci th,e otTnqra considered it would bo

When tho reading of tho petitions had been
completed, Richie m-jved that the same bo
placed on tho table indefinitely, It received
a second imd AttoniBV Sanfcey asked his
honor tho privilege of making a few remarks
on the question.
Ho was interrupted by Mr, Richie, who
stated Ijo fiblootnil to n,ny outside discgssiQns.
Mr. Saukqy then stated tht those cam-
plaining were citizens and should have
wrongs remitted. '-It is only a bigoted man
who con not learn from experience. Men will
amend their acts shown to bo wrong. This
is unjust and I ask to In) beard in defense of
our own rights and those of the city."
Tho mayor then said that ho thought they
had been given a hearing at ths former meet
ing. Ho thought tlio councimen ljinl jjeard
all there was in the question and would not
bo changed by anything that could then be
introduced. Richie ''It is only by tho
unanimous consent of tho council that an
