The finance committee passed
on several bills of not startling
moment and the council sanctioned
thoir report. Under the hoad of
"bills," Col- Weldy registered a
kick on printer's bills passed last
session admitted that he had not
done his duty to the tnx ptyers in
being asleep or busy while the
other members, five in number,"
erronously passed such bills.
Counoilmen Shaw and Angle of
the printing committee explained
that they had saved $10.09 to the

done nobly by the tax-payers.
That old canal ditch, with all
its fumes and "skceters" was
dragged into the council chamber
again, when the subject of drain
age came up. Chairman James of
that committee reported that the
ditch must be cleaned. Latining
said it is no use cleaning it until
the out Jet sewer was opened and
made larger. That by the light

everlasting gratitude of tho "hill

pouring into the council in a
pointed talk, that the hill approach
of Cherry Avefnue and Mound St.
must be repaired. Tho water
had washed tho middle of tho
street and tho brick gutters proper
are up in the air doing no service
what ever. That it would prob
ably bo the best policy to dish tlio
street in the center for drainage,
and dispense with the side gutters.
Something will b) done with that

tho street committee with full
power to act.
Attorney Whitoraft was at the

William Fields, former Sanitary

cited some strong law and decisions
supporting his client claim, Col,
Weldy took issuo with the court
decision where upon Whitoraft
retorted with the hope that Circuit
Court decisions were more impor
