T?e Mayor announced to the Council that he

which the employees of the city would be paid off
every Monday at noon-the carts and drivers at
the rate of fifteen dollars; the foremen, brick
layers aim carpenters at the rate often dollars; I
and the laborers at aeven dollars per week. He
also stated that. In accordance with the r?solu
tion of Council entrusting to him the making of I
temporary arrangements for the furnishing of I
drugs and medicines, he had made an agreement
with Dr. H. Baer for the lower wards and Messrs. J
rGraman A Schwake for the upper warda, by
which those parties would furnish the city lnstl- j
tntlons and phyalclans with drugs of the best I
qualities at wholesale prices.
The bill of Captain Reed, for twelve months' I
8torag~, at the rate of live dollars per month, or a

was referred to the committee on accounts.
Alderman Voigt presented a petition signed by
many citizens, moat of them engaged in the mar-1
kat business, requesting that licenses should not I
be issued to hucksters and pediera to sell poultry
on the streets, as thii practice worked manifest
injury to those who had paid for their licenses
and had hired stalls at the market for the pur
pose or selling poultry; also representing that the j
refusai of the license would discourage the theft
of poultry. The matter waa referred to the com
mittee on licenses.

two atory wooden buildings in Queen street, the

Alderman Taylor, of the committee ou way a I
and means, to whom waa referred a report or the I
city appraiser, stated that the paper contained I
nothing bnt a nasa of information which could I
be found tn the reporta or the city officers. On
motion the document was ordered to be left at I
the Mayor's office for Inspection and information, j
Alderman Slgwald, of the committee on vacant
om ce?, reported that he waa ready to report, bat I
as several billa would be brought up relating to I
many of the office?, he begged leave to postpone
n. s report au ul later l-i the session. I
Alderman Bowen, or the committee on retrench-1
ment and relief, submitted the report called for I
by the following resolution which waa adopted I
At the las t m ee t in g of Connell :
W- Jtesoitea. That the committee on retrench- I
ment and relier be instructed to report at the f
next regular meeting of on nell the propriety of
reducing the Balarles and abolishing unnecessary
offices, if any there be. ,
<~ He Bald the committee had gone to work calm : j, I
ana endeavored to do their duty felthQaUy and
impartially. They recommend the abolishing of
several offices, and the reduction of the Balarles I
as follows : The city appraiser $15 0; two assis
tants $1000 each; civil engineer $1200; assistant
engineer, abolished; harbormaster $1200, formerly I
$1500; harbormaster clerk, abolished; city hall
messenger $500, formerly $900; city registrar I
$1500, formerly $1800; clerk $500, ronner ly $800.
The committee also recommended a reduction
of the appropriations for etreete and the police I
department. The r?ductions in salari?e would }
save the city rally fie JO yearly, and leave ample I
and remunerative salarie ? to the officers. The I
fin committee reported that they were unable to ex
amine into the City Court, but that lt was now
so shorn of the authority as to appear useless,
and ita farther continuance seemed a needless
expenditure The offices or recorder and clerk I
v of the City Court were recommended tobe ab ol- I
45* tabed, or that no appropriation be made for their J
salaries, and If the offices were createl by]
legislation, to petition the Legislature to abolish
the same. I
On motion of Alderman Yo'gt the matter or the
City Court waa referred to the city attorney to fur.
nish Council with such In for ma* ion as would en
abie them to take proper action in the matter at
its next mee: lng. ?
4 Alderman- Bowen added that bit Hone* the I
Mayor had suggested to the committee to begin
ijR thelr retrenchment by reducing the Mayor's sal- I
i ary from $30co to $2600. [The proposition waa
'Vuo? entertained by Council.] I
. vT..\. Alderman O'Neill suggested that the report be [
^vRftSelved so far, bot that the cemmlttee continue
^?^elr work. He did not see the city attorney
noticed, whose salary was now $3000, and was
Alderman Pelzer moved that action on the re- j
port be deferred for the present. **j
Alderman Vc1 gt seconded the motion, aa the I
report could not atand against the ordinance

of the former waa actually dangerous. Rere
to the committee on the Fire Department.
The Mayor asked if any bula would be ti
up for the second reading.
Alderman Simonda hoped that thia would
be done, unless a bill was pressing and ape
call was made for lt.
Alderman Taylor moved that the police bl
taken np. .
Alderman Slmonds first begged leave to
the following resolutions, which.Were adopte

amounting to $118133, be referred to thee
mitten on accounts.
The bins sent in at the last-meeting amoni
to $25,617 23.
The poi-.e bill waa then taken up and real
sections by the Mayer. Ia the first section, Al
man slgwald moved to amend by making the
ol th J Alte guard six hundred dollars, lnsteai
roar hundred and eighty dollars, per annum,
knew that the policemen's duty was no chi
play, and fifty dollars per month was well ear
by all of them who did their daty.
Alderman Taylor objected, that the ame
ment would kill the btu by adding $12,000 at
blow to the expense, which at the present ngu
amounted te $58,000.
Alderman Slmonds moved to lay the ame
ment on the table, and his motion waa carried
the casting vote of the Mayor.
Alderman Slgwald made a similar objection
the pay of the night guard, which was also ov
ruled, and after some discussion the bUl *
passed to Its third reading, the only amendme
carried being the increase of the pay of the fe
sergeants from three hundred an J sixty-five d
lars to four hundred dollars per annum.
Alderman Slgwald remarked that the blU in
latlon to streets had already practlcaUy go
into effect, and reqoeated that theblU lntroduc

with a further amendment la the pay of the Ru?
men, which was reduced from ten dollars to nit
donara per week. _
At the request of Alderman Voigt, the bill r<

j Alderman Sweegan called for the bill e-tabiist
lng two city apothecaries, and its second read
- mg was begun hy sections.
Alderman Taylor thought lt was time to mak
a serious ot Jectloo. which he had long entertain
ed, against the passage of this bin. ita title wai
a misnomer. The contractors performed ni
duties as apothecaries. They acted ?Minply ai
druggists. It was hard to see wh7 i,he city
wanting to purchase drugs by wholesale, abouie
go to a retan apothecary, when, they could ge
the same here or elsewhere ' much cheaper a
wholesale prices. The proposal to have "nlghi
bella" would amount to nothing. After some
further remarks, he moved to lay the bill on the
table, which motion was carried.
I .Alderman Slgwald, from the committee On va?
cant Offices, r^portel the following to be vacant:
j Clerk and messenger or Connell, city appraiser
and assistant, city inspectors, harbormaster port
wardens; nity* registrar, gaugera of liquors, in?
spectors of tidal drama, naval ste rea and public
cemetery, six city physicians, lumber inspector,
four chimney contractor:, commissioned officers
of police and sti .et con: rac tors.
Alderman Voigt aald the office of city treasurer
was not reported vacant, although be had been
told the term or that officer bad expired. He had
professional opinion that the tenure of that officer
expired on the loth of October, 1871. He moved
that thia matter be referred back to the commit?
tee. Agre? to.
Alderman Taylor asked if a detailed report of
the proceedings of the High School board for the
last year had not bren made. He wanted this for
information, as the school waa not in a aatlsfac
tory condition. He moved that Alderman Voigt,
a member of the board of supervisors, prepare a
report and ru m lah lt at the next meeting of Coun?
cil, showing the number ot pupils in attend
ance, the number or teachers and the'.; Bi;a.
rles, and aa to, how the. appropriation had
been expended. Last year six thousand six hun?
dred donara were expend?d on the teachers, and
there were but forty scholars, seventeen or whom
were beneficiaries. This was too expensive.
Alderman Voigt asked that a rormal resolution I
DD the subject be passed and sent to the chairman
or the board, as lt wonld be almost impossible for
aim (Alderman Voigt) to mase the report without
Alderman Taylor said as the Mayor was ex
officio a. member of the board his Honor might
furnish the i eport.
The Mayor promised to use every exertion to
throw light on the matter.
The city treasurer stated he woald be able to
furnish al! the facts relating to the subject, and
would do so at the next meeting.
Alderman Voigt moved that an advertisement
be published giving flv? days' notice that all
vacant offices, as reported, woald be filled at the
nexr regular meeting of Council.
On motion, the Connell i hen adjonrned.
