A special -meeting of tho board 0

chairman of tho board, and ' Aldermen

When a reporter of the Bulletin en
tered the room. Alderman Sittenhouse
sat conversing with City Clerk ptewart,
while His Honor was bueliy engaged
in sand-papering the rust front aa ancient
lard tester, and occasionally Joining In
the talk with the alderman and his com
panion. Alderman McGauley,, of the
Fourth, and Alderman Lancaster, of the
Fifth ward, soon made their appearance,
and nis Honor wanted to know where
Mri. Wilcox was, meaning; Alderman

AFTER WA1TWC j i
some time for tho r .ii.a vn.

Impatient and order was called. -' .
AT IT THET GO.
Alderman Lancaster Well what's to
be done ?
Mayor Whiter You know well
The mayor then explained that he had
removed Brown with the rest of the
officers; .that his communication
wherein bo set forth that the city had
never been in a healthier condition, and
that there was no need of a health officer,
bad .been referred to the board of health,
and that some action should be taken
Aldermin Laucaster Well, what do you
want us to do? wait until we are all sick
and then hire a health officer ? ,
Mayor Winter Would you take medi
cine before you get sick ?
Alderman Rittenhousc We want to
keep from getting sick by keeping the
Mayor Winter There's no need of a
health officer to keep it clean. There is
the city marshal who can and is willing
to look after any uucleanliness that can
be found. All tlie people who find
nuisances In their neighborhood have to
do Is to report to him aud it will be
abated., i, "., 1

Alderman McGauley This puts me in
mind of the story ot the two contrary
farmers. One wanted a fence built and
the other didn't. How, I have a man lu
my ward who is.Tery contrary. He
keeps a very dirty yard, and when his
neighbors spoke- to him of the sickness
the filth might breed be got angry aud
refused to clean up, but built such a high
fence that no one can tee over it. His
yard is as dirty as ever, but no one cares
to incur his hard feeling by informing
Alderman Rittenhouse It Is natural
that people should have a delicacy about
such tilings. . There, are some living in
my vicinity with whom my family and I
are neighborly, who allow their places to
become unfavorable to health, but I do
not care to inform ou them, as it would
certainly cause a feeling ol unklndness
between us. But if we had a health offi
cer, whose duty is understood by every
body, it would be different, v
. Alderman Lancaster Well,
. WHAT ARE YOU OQIXQ TO DO ?

timid u an that comes to, they ought to

McGauley Brown is now
acting in that eapactity Is he not, Mr.
Aldsrman Rittenhouse I employed
him on the authority given the board of

by the passage ot my resolutiou. He Is
now at work.

Mayor Winter I should like to see
him act as health officer. t Jle can't do it
unlet endowed with the power of a po
lice constable, lie may act under your
resolution, but not as health officer.
Alderman Rittenhouse Ho is employ
ed to assist the board of health In clean
ing the city, and will be paid in some
way. We are not quite certain whether
he will receive pay for doing tho work
of the health officer or not, but he will
be paid in some way.
Alderman Lancaster Well, what are
you going to do?
HEALTHY AND CLEAN.

AldVraWlLtUkele thought It
was best to set him to work as soon as
Mayor Winter I Just wanted to know
whether there had been another meeting
that 1 did not' attend. I bave been Ig
nored on two occasions, notwithstanding
I am chairman ol the board.
Alderman Rittenhouse You were no
tified of both the meetings of which you
speak, and If you did not sea it to at
tend, It was no fnnlt of onrs. Wa trans
acted our business without yon.
Mayor Winter Probably you had bet
tcr do away with the chairman altogether
if you get along so well. May be you had
better get rid of the mayor, loo.
Alderman Rittenhouse I have no
doubt there Would be more harmony In
the council were we without a mayor,
just at present.
, , BR0W5 ANOTUKR TIME.
Mayor Winter You say Mr. Brown
II W. k
Alderman Rittenhouse Yes sir.
-Mayor Winter Who employed him?
Aklermau Rittenhouse I did.
Mayor Winter What authority had
you to hire him ?
Alderman Rittenhouse All the mem
bers of the board consented to It.
Mayor Winter When was there a
meeting of tltc board.
" Pal CHAIRMAN '
and know of no meeting that gave you
any such authority.
Alderman Rittenhouse It was agreed
that we should employ Mr. Brown the
night the resolution waa adopted, and if
I am not mistaken yon were in the room
at the time. It waa just after adjourn
ment, and all the members of the board
were talking the matter over.
Mayor Winter Yes, 1 was there, and
saw you, but supposed you were chuckl
ing over the way you had
DOT AWAT WITH ME.
Alderman Rittenhouse Oh! no, sir.
We didn't chuckle over It then, and have
not yet, that I know of.
Mayor Winter You bet you are
WELCOME TO CHUCELE
whenever you get the best of me, but 1
don't see yon've got me yet.
Alderman Rittenhouse There is one
thing connected with all this business,
Mayor Winter, that seems strange to me.
Every man that you have nominated,
and whom you wanted.has been confirmed
by the council. But now,' when the coun
cil, believing that the health of the city
Is at stake, asks you to help them,
you refuse, and declare there
is 110 need of such an officer.
Mayor Winter He Is a needless ex
pense. I want to economize. If I didn't
want to reduce the expenses of the citv
I should not have advocated the cutting
down of the police force. But you men
have turned the whole thing 'round and
made It appear that I wanted to put some
one In Brown's place, aud you are all
down ou me.
Alderman Lancaster And ou the other
baud, you get mulish and swear you'll
turn him off every time he is reinstated
Mayor Winter Yes. I have said I w ill
remove him every time, and 1 mean it.
Alderman McGauley Is there not
some means by which this matter can be
decided permanently ?
Mayor Winter Judge Baker Is the
man to decide it, and I'll pay all the
costs, just to see who Is right the coun
cil or myself. -
Alderman Lancaster Well, say ; what
are yon going to do ? It's dinner time.
Alderman McGauley As far as I am
personally concerned. It docs not matter
much whether we bare a health officer or
not. But I have conversed on the sub
ject with a number of tnenwho helped to
elect me. They tiro all ot the opinion
that the time la at hand when the services
of a health officer are1 ni6st needed, audi
therefore feel that it Is 'tay duty to do all
I can to keep him at work.
Alderman Rittenhouse Jim Summer
well U the only man I know of who
thinks we tiave. no use for a health offi
Alderman Lancaster I 've talked to a
great many people, about' tils 'matter,
and have not heard a" dissenting voice.
But what are you going to do? 1 m get
ting tired. u k ikiUilii .
Alderman McGy mve we have
nothing to do with the communication
until we have a little more time to think,
about it. , ;,
Mayor Winter The action of Mr.

meeting ot the board of health la not le
gal, and you had better do something.
. Alderman Rittenhouse I dou't want to
get into trouble now, after the matter has
goue this far, and 1 don't care to, either
approve or disapprove this commaidoa

up points that are not fully settled as yet
