CITY ENGINEER'S REPORT.
The city engineer reported as follows:
In tbe matter of the protests Nos. 95

I find as follows: The total frontage in
the district assessed to pay the expenses,

In the matter of the petition of Misa
L. 3. Hammond et al.. No. 034, praying
for the abatement of tbe nuisance

of the culvert crossing Seventh street
on the west side of Pearl etreet ie about
72 feet distant from the zanja manhole
in tbe sidewalk on tbe weet side of
Pearl Btreet, south of Seventh street;
there is fall sufficient to drain the water
into the zanja. I would therefore rec
ommend that a 12-inch vitrified pipe be
laid, joining the culvert with the man
he>ie. The expense of doing the work,
the city furnishing the pipe, would not
exceed the sum of $25. Referred to

IMPORTANT REPOIIT OF FINANCE COMMITTEE,
The finance committee reported as
First. In the matter of petition No. 97
from Elizabeth A. Hills, asking thattax
sale certificate No. 4282 for the year
1892-93 be cancel led upon the ground
that the property therein described to
wit: Lot 23, block E, of the Ela View
tract, ia doubly aasessed for said year
and the taxes heretofore paid thereon
underassessment No. 466-M, the city as
sessor having reported to this commit
tee that the statements therein con
tained are true and correct, we recom
mend that the petition be granted and
tbat the city clerk be instructed to mark
■aid tax sale certificate No. 42U2 to be
found in volume 10 of tax sales, at page
611, cancelled and redeemed of record.
Second. Your committee beg leave to
call your carefnl attention to the condi
tion of the caah fund, which is the gen
eral expense fnnd of the city.
There was provided in the annual tax
levy for this fund the sum of $158,629.54,
and there bas been received from other
sources up to tbe first day of February,
1894, the sum of $3399 03, making a
total of $162,028.57. exclusive of $3000
received from forfeited ohecks, and
$12,000 transferred from the salary fnnd,
which amounts do not enter into the
figures herewith submitted.
We find that the amounts drawn from
this fund up to tha let of February
amount to $96,390.19, which amonnti
includes the following transfers:
To employment fund, $4000; to West
lake park pipe line fund, .4490.58; to
fire department fund, $1250; other trans
fers, $308.54, making a total amount ol
transfers oi $10,049.12 and leaving an
available balance from the levy lor tbe
six montha commencing February lßt
and ending August lit of $65,638,38, or
an average available monthly balance of
$10,939.70, which amonut will be some
what increased by the collection of
street incidentals and engineers' fees, of
which amounts the etreet incidentals
are but a collection of the amounts paid
therefor by the city, and the engineer's
fees are a partial return of the amount
of bli pay-roll drawn against the cash
As we later herein include the pay-roll
of the city engineer we have added for
thie purpose a sum sufficient to increase
the average available uiontfciy balance

to $11,260, which is approximately
Wt, have not, however, included the
street incidentals either as a debit or
credit, as the one offsets the other.
We further find that there are the
following amounts drawn monthly upon
On contracts, 12811, as follows :
Removal of garbage. $1,016 07
Etreet sweeping. 1,410 OO
Removal of dcrd animals, about 300 OO
Rent of corral 25 00
On pay rolls about $6200, as follows:
Pay ioII of street superintendent 4,850 OO
Pay roll of city engineer 1,350 OO
In other regular mouthly expendi
tures, $009, as follows:
Oas city hall and police station 275 OO
Rent ol Ransome home 90 HO
Allowance ol free dlsDcnsary 25 no
Bent of |*s regulators 12 00
Drugs for receiving hospital 70 00
Secret service fund 100 00
Towel supply city hall 15 00
Printing llc;nse books 20 00
Coal for elevator, about 100 00
Board of patrol horses 32 00
Making a total monthly expenditure for
these purposes of $9680, and leaving an
available monthly balance ol about.sls7o
lor expenditures such as stationery,
lumber, job printing, meat, vegetables,
bread, groceries and coal for city prison,
tool sharpening, blacksmithing, repairs,
feed and general supplies for the street
department, coal for heating city ball,
repairing paved Btreets, and other gen
eral expenses chargeable to this fund.
The demands ana transfers from tbis
fund from the Ist to the Bth of February
amount to $11,253.14, or the full amount
of the monthly average, with the larger
part of the regular monthly expenditures
outside of pay rolls still to be presented,
which will increase the expenditures to
from $3000 to $4000 in excess of the
allowance; and while this amount in
cludes $2000 of the $6000 transferred
from the cash fund to the employment
fund, tbe expenses properly chargeable
to this fund will exceed the monthly
estimate by at least $2000.
The facts herein presented warrant us
in stating that if we anticipate ending
the fiscal year without an overdraft on
tbis fund, expenses mußt be curtailed to
the lowest possible point, and tbat such
concerted action ac your honorable body
may deem advisable to accomplish this
result be taken at the earliest possible
We would recommend, in view ot
these facts, that the city clerk be in
structed to notify all departments of the
city government that they must admir
ister their departments within the
amounts allowed them in the annual
estimates, as no transfers will be made
to cover deficits in their funds, and tbat
the clerk notify all city officers tbat
tbey must exercise the most risid econ
omy in their several departments, and
also notify all departments and city offi
cers that under no circumstances must
auy gooda be purchased or labor fur
nished without lirat having obtained
tbe necessary authorization therefor, as
under no circumstances will the city
relieve any officer of personal responsi
bility for labor or material furnished

THE MERCHANTS' TAX.
Third—ln the matter oi communica
tion No. 117, from the Merchants' asso
ciation, asking the council to define
their position in tbe matter of the re
moval of the so-called merchants'
license, and referred to this committee,
we beg to report that since this question
wae first presented to tbe council by the
Merchants' association, demands have
been made upon the funds of the city
which were unlooked for at that time,
hit which tbe cause ol humanity re
quired the municipal authorities to
In tne matter of providing work for
tbe unemployed, the city has expended
about 110,000, for which no provision
wae made in tba annual estimates, and
all of which money has been expended
in our own city in providing food and
clothing and shelter for many who
would otherwise have been in want for
the necessaries of life.
As stated in another porcion of this
report, it will be necessary to practice
the strictest economy in order to finish
the fiscal year without a deficit in the
several funds, and to invite such a de
ficit by removing this source of revenue
at this time wich no source from which
to provide for the amount of license re
moved, we cannot help but feel would
work a great injustice on ttie people of
the city, and stop the proper adminis
tration of the affairs of the municipality,
We believe tbat thie association,
composed of business men of the com
munity, will appreciate these facts
when properly placed before tbem, and
we do not believe it unbecoming iv this
council to appeal to tbem to assist tbe
municipal authorities by paying this
license, which iB comparatively small in
each individual case, but which in the
aggregate amounts to a large sum, until
the time for fixing the next annual levy,
when proper provisions can be made for
its removal, rather than by forcing the
city into a position of enforcing its col
lection, thereby adding a temporary
embarrassment and additional expense
to tbe city at large as well as to them
In view of these facts, we recommend
that the city clerk be instructed to in
vite tbe icombere ol tbe Merchants'
association to meet tbe council in an in
formal discussion ol this matter on
Wednesday, Feb. 14th, 1894, at 10
o'clock a. m. Adopted.

a Large Amount of Money.
Tbe Celebrated Goud.peed-Manafleld
Caae Again on Deck—Some Inter,
•■ting Lav Points Halted.
The Goodepeed-Mansfield litigation
caused to be raised a novel point, in
volving the jurisdiction ol two superior
courts of tbie county. The matter came
up before Judge York yesterday.
A suit waa brought by Annie Pratt
against John Mansfield and Mrs. Anab
K. Mansfield to compel them to account
for large sums of money and personal
property, including $18,881,90 still in
the hands of the Farmers and Mer
chants bank. This suit was instituted
January 17th. Mrs. Mansfield, how
ever, was equally diligent, and January
13th brought suit in Judge York's court
against the bank, demanding judgment
for the $18,881.90 involved in the subse
quent action in Judge Clark's court.
As soon as the bank waa sued in
Judge Y'ork'e court its attorneys gave
notice that on February 12th tbey
would ask to be allowed to deposit tbe
money in Jndge York's conrl, and that
E. L. Campbell, the guardian, be sub
stituted as defendant in place of tbe
As soon as the bank Wfte »° con
junction with the Menetields In Judge
Clark's court by the guardian, E.
Campbell, for an accounting, it also
filed its answer, offering to deposit the
money in Judge Clark's court.
In this way tbe bank became en
tangled between two courts and did not
know in which one to make their pay
ment. Mrs, Mansfield, her attorneys,
E. L. Campbell and hiß attorneys, and
the bank and its attorneys appeared be
fore Judge York yesterday morning,
when a stop to all further procedure
was made by Attorney Hanlon intro
ducing as evidence the Injunction issued
by Judge Clark.
Judge Silent argued that tbe notice
did not affect tbe bank, and tbat tbe
case waß not on trial.
Attorney Hanlon declared that Silent
was treading dangerously near contempt
of court, and under the injunction
should remain mute.
Judge York held tbat the suit in
Judge Clark's court waß the proper one
to decide all questions of this kind, it
being an accounting for all of the Mans
Tbe court thereupon denied Silent'a
motion without prejudice, and granted
Mr. Hannon'a motion to drop tbe de
murrer and all tbe proceedings from tbe
Later in the day Attorneys Silent and
Campbell appeared in Judge Clark's
court and objected to tbe justification of
certain sureties on E. L. Campbell's
bond as guardian, the grounds given by
the firm being that the service of notice
of justification was received by his clerk
and not by a member o! tbe firm. It
appeared, though, that the same clerk
had repeatedly accepted similar notices,
and his actions repeatedly endorsed by
members oi the firm oi Houghton,
Silent & Campbell.
The objection was taken under ad
