The necessary orders were given yes

Memohis know to their cott. fronls on
Front btreet, just north of Poplar, and
has a rear entrance on Center alley.
For years no repairs have been made
oa it. Its exterior of dnsty, time-
worn brick and broken wimRiw panes
is uninviting, and its in
terior even more to. ine

their nets in the corners for the in

the use of plenty of paint and bright
paper, the change will be for the bet
ter. Entering the building from Cen
ter alley, the cilice at the head cf the
stairs will be fitted up for Secretary
Pullen. The next will be a sort of
general room, divided by a railing, one
side to be used by President Hadden
and the other tor Council meetings.
The official will also have in the
next room sometbiag he needs
very much a private office.
The large hall where the old Board ol
Mayor and Aldermen used t j luxuri
ate will be unused. On the west side
of the building, on the same floor as
the other office, are three rcoms, one
of which will be set apart for the
transaction of t'ae old city tax receiv

floor will be UBed for the storaga of
the toDls of the Engineer's Depart
ment. A pi see may alao be provided
for the Board of Health. The.present
quaiters of the officials at the Court

the City Hall has postponed the re

another reafonalmo3t as patent, if not
more so. The taking possession of the
building would have been an admis

tinoa'ion of the old. and until litiga

tied there bin been tome fear that it
would not ke safe. All those quee-
