THE FIRE DEPARTMENT BUDGET.
The supply committee reported back
a number of requisitions from the
board of fire commissioners and recom-4
mended that ttoey be allowed.
Mr. Innes called for a reading in de
tail of the requisitions. He said there
was no great amount of money, and the
purchase of new horses involved an out
lay of $400. He thought there was less
than $6000 in the treasury to the credit
of the fire department for the rest of the
fiscal year, and he was in favor of going
Mr. Munson eaid there was need of
horses to do the work of the tire depart

yoke while the other horße polled the
engine to the fire.
Mr. Pessell moved to refer to the fire
Mr. Gaffey—What's the good of that?
Those requisitions have just come from

THE SIXTH STREET MATTER.
The finance committee reported in
favor of cutting down the compensation
of the commissioners for improvement
of Sixth street, from $200 to $100, Mr.
Mcllmoil was in the council chamber
and said he thought that a reduction of
$60 was quite reduction enough. He and
his associates had given bonda for the
faithful performances of their duties and
this work had engaged their time for the
greater portion of 16 months. He did
not like the idea of going into the courts",
but said he would see his fellow com
missioners about it. The matter went
over to the afternoon session for further

they ask is suitable rooms to be fur
nished and materials for operating these
Bchools. The object is one that involves
but little expense to the city, and the
reason for having them conducted in the
school hoases, iB that school discipline
be maintained over the children,
which may not be the case if these
Bchools were taken outside of the regu
lar school buildings.
Mr. Stein moved to postpone two
Mr. Ashman moved a substitute, to
the effect that the resolution be adopted
provided that sufficient means can be
had for the purpose of carrying on the
school and proper rooms can be had.
Mrs. Hughes said the tendency of mod
ern education was towards superficial
teaching. She knew of hundreds of ladies
who would prefer their daughters to
be taught cooking and sewing at schools
in preference to dancing or even music.
Since the introduction of sewing ma
chines, not one girl in five was a good
needle-woman; and not one girl in 20
could cook a good meal. Matters of do
mestic life that were taught every child,
40 yeara ago, were now almost forgotten
in the race for accomplishments. She
hoped the board would adopt the orig
inal motion of Dr. Wills.
On motion of Mr. Pattee, the board
adjourned to meet at Wednesday at

Editors :!-.k\i d: I notice in yonr
issue of Friday, May sth, an article,
unsigned, giving an account of an at
tempt of a few "disturbers" to entangle
the Council of Labor with the People's
party. You have made certain state
ments of alleged facts, which are erro
neous, and as a member of this council
and holding an official position in it, I
deem it my duty to make the correction,
wbich you will please give publication,
in the interests of justice to all con
cerned. A proposition was received
from the Farmers' Alliance of this
county to participate in a social gather
ing, to be held by them on tbe Fourth
of July, for thi purpose of better ac
quaintance among tbe different indus
trial forces. Politics was not mentioned.
The proposition waß accepted, and a
committee was appointed to co-operate
with them. At a subsequent meeting
the power to act was taken from the
committee, who were instructed to in
quire into the nature of tbe former
meeting and report. No tattling was
done, as the records will show; neither
was there my attempt by •'disturbers"
to identify the council with the People'e
party. W. 0. B. Randolph,
