BUYING MORE FIRE HORSES
Mayor D A Yeiser this morning
received by express a sample of bitu
litbio material from Hancock street
Boston Mass and exhibited it to
those who had not seen this material
Attached to the sample were tag
giving a description of tho material
and data on tbe lives of struots built
from bitulithio compound Mayor
Yolser is very greatly impressed
with this material and says it seems
to be better than asphalt or brick
and from present indications the
streets to bo improved will be built of
this material
Boston Mass uses this a great
deal and finds it very profitable the
street lasting longer and being as
noiseless as it is possible to bulla a
trout The sample will remain on ox
hibition in tbo mayors bfflco and ho
would liko to have all interested in
street improvements come in and
see it

A member of tbe city hospital com
mittee stated this morning that since
an outline of tho plans cf the hospital
building made by Architect William
Brainerd had been approved bids
would be opened very soon and when
the bonds arc sold tho building will
I begin t3bmo members of tho board think
that the hospital can be built by the
first of next year but others are of
the opinion that it will bo quite a year
before it is f completed
Mayor Yoiier stated today that it
was undecided whether or not the
wagon license case will be appealed l
the matter being left in the hands of
the finance committee It was stated
at first that the solicitor would appeal
tbe case but later the authorities be
gan to study over the opinion of Judgo
Reed and look up the Oovington do
cision and decided it best to thorough
ly investigate before any action to
wards appealing was taken If the
decision of tho appellate court makes
It plain to thorn that an appeal would
be useless they will drop it Tho
tttect of the decision will be felt
ned week when the second half of
city licenses will fall due
It is probable that tho controversy
over who is to purchase the horses
for the new firo departments will bo
settled by the mayor doing it himself
The board of aldermen favored the
purchase of the horses by tho police
and fire commissioners and tho moan
aU wanted tho fire committee of tbo
general council to do the buying On
account of the deadlock the mayor
will have to do it
A prominent ont of town brick
street builder was in the city the
other day and watched tho work of
building brick streets in Paducah
