Council Committee Allows Phil

After hearing a statement of E. A.
Hoen, the Council Committee on
Grounds and Buildings last night re
sclnded Its former action and granted
use of the City Auditorlum for a se
ries of four concerts for $15 per night..
Jlr. Hoeu stated thai. the organlzatlon
was pltrely voluntary for the purposes
of advanclng musical educatlon of tlie
public, It being planned to sell sub
frcriptlons to the serles at a nominal
price. No proflts wlll aecrue to any
af the promoters, as should there be
any, after paylng expenses, the asso?
ciation offers to turn them over to the
Assoclated CharltleB. Chalrman Bat
kins opposed the motlon as setting a
dangerous precedent ln grantlng spe
rial prlces and underbldding the tlie
ntres and public halls, whlch hold
licenses and pay city taxes.
The City Englneer was instrurted to
rurchase a bnggy for the kecper of
AVIillam Byrd Park. again over tho
jirotesi of Chalrman Batkins, wlio
thought lt an unwise precedent for tho
clty to la-igln furnlshlng pleasure ve
hlcles for parkkeepers. It was repre
eented that the parkkeeper would use
the vehlcle for haullng small supplles
and tools to and from the park, and
ihat the clty had already purchased
a horse for the keeper's use.
Blds were openjpd for repnirs to
"Washington Ward ..jail*'' James Fox

the contract belng awardod to Bass as
the lowest bidder. The appropriation
for the purpose is $1,000. An agent for
the Good Roads Improvement Company
asked an allowance of $70 fnr harrel
Ing and storing oi], and the claim was
allowed. It was stated thnt tln- clty
had bought a tank car of oil for treat
lng drlvewaya in Gamblefa Hill Park
last fall; that the roads had not been
property graded. and the use of oll
dressing was postponed until cold
weather came on, when lt becamo
necessary to put It in barrels and

Accordlng to an amendment to tho
ordinance governing the appllcation
for clty liquor llcenses, dealers wlll bo
liermltted to flle their checks accom

later than was the case last spring.
Tho amendment, whlch was approvod
Octoher 25, provldes that certlfled
cliooks shall be deposlted with the
Commlssloner of tho Revenue "at least*
ten days prlor to the dato on whlch
such appllcant deslres tho said license
to bocomo cffectlve." The old law re?
qulred the deposits to be made thlrty
days before the license became effeo
The llcenses under whicli the s.aloons
are now operatlng, wlll explre on Jan?
unry 31, and those for the new year
will be ln force on the followlng day.
Appllcation must be made to tho com
mlssloni'i* in the handwrltlng and
slgned by the appllcant and must be
accompanled by a certlfled oheck for
$,*i00. lf all re.qulrements of the law
nre complied with, tho llcenses will bo
certlfled to Judgo Wltt, of the 1 lustlngs
Court, who wlll formally authorlze
tho bars to do businoss.
The amendment was passed because
lt was thought a hardshlp for the
liquor dealers to have tlielr money tled
up for such a length of tlmo, especial?
ly whon neither thoy nor the clty could
derlvo any boneflt from It. Though lt
created quite a good deal of lnterest
when under dlscusslon ln the Councll,
a number of dealors are sald to have
overlooked the fact and are preparing
to deposlt their checks Janunry 2.
