September 11th, 1S77, reported Vthat
upon examination they find that no side
walk has been ordered upon and along
lot 1, block 11, city ot Cairo, and that

the assessment of lot 1, block 0, city of
Cairo, it being upon the north side of
Twelfth street, between Ohio Levee and
Commercial avenue, as well as the first

was doubtlessly committed in locating
tho sidewalk on the north instead ot the
south side of Twelfth street as ordeaed In
ordinance No. Ill;" and "that the corpo
ration counsel be Instructed to take such
steps as will relieve tho lots on north side
ot Twelfth street, as above, from Improp
