not only allowed to lake place In dell nice

Yesterday negotiations were completed
.for an eight-round go nt the Auditorium on
April S between Tommy Itvnn and I'addy

place, will be nothing more or less than a
prli" light, for the chances are that there
will be a knockout. Smokers have been
plentiful of Hte ill which glove contests,
In which blood Is freely shed, nie allowed
to lake place, and the police never make a
sign of Interfering.

hen the charter revision committee met
In tlie olllce of the board of public works
yesterriaj afternoon. Atlornej D. J. ll.HT,
for the park board, submitted the nmeiiil
ment for the creation ot a board ot pitk
poinmlKloncr. The piopoed nmendtuent
Is designed to take the place of article lo
of the illy charier, as submitted, con
tains 10,("J words and tlilrty-elglil section.
It was rend and explained by Mr llnff,
and while nn declidon vva reached bj the
committee Jenterdaj, It will probiblj be
teportcd lo the council, with the leeom
inetidatlon that It be submitted to the vote
ot the people. Tin- members of the com
mittee weie nil f.ivotably Impressed with
the provisions of the amendment and will
support It when certain mlnoi changes nro
made under the dltectlon of the cltj coun
selor In consultation with .Mr. Muff.
Tho principal features of the amendment
are lhor electing the park board Into an
Independent executive body of the tilj,
taking It away from the domination ot tho
board of public works, nnd the section pro
viding' for the lssuo and rnte of special
lux lertlllcates In advance of thu lime
when the taxes fall due. The Installment
Into which such taxes may lie divided tire
also left to the dlsetellon of the bond, tho
coumll concur! Ing and uiforclug nnj rec
ommendation bj npptoprlatc legislation.
No legislative powers are vested In the
board, the defects In the state law In tills
respect being Carefully avoided. The
amendment creates one more sahulid olllce
lu tlie list of place holders and one only.
This is secretary to the board, who shall
give bond and receive such salarj- as the
board may !l.
Miiuj- of tlie sections nre merely reten
tions of chatter piovllons now In exist
ence, notably thoo In teference to the con
demnation of lands for public uses and the
methods of asselng damages und bene
llts bj-Juries of fieeholdeis. The decision
In the Vlnejaid case Is closely followed In
framing the sections relating to such pro
ceedings. Section 1 creates nn executive depart
ment to be knuwn as a "board of park
commissioners." It also provides that the
bouiil shall consist of live freeholdeis of
the city, who shall have been residents ot
the? cltj at least live jc.irs prior to ap
pointment and who shall seive without
compensation and give bond for the faith
ful dlseliaigc of their duties In the stilus
of Jintoi for the president and $.i,(M for
the other members. The mcmbeis are to
be named by the major, without eonilrinn
tion by the council. The first board glial!
serve only until tlie end ot the llse.il jear
ISM, each succeeding board to bo appointed
for two jcars,
fcectlons -, i nnd I define the duties of
the bonid In the keeping ot neords, the
method of transacting- business, the nam

compensation, and the manner of ll.xlng
Section " confeis power on the boaid to

H.v section 7 tlie piesent park districts
are eonllimed. This was done, as Jit. Half
explained, because theie is a fund on hand
belonging to those districts which can be
expended to better advantage without
change and which can scatcely be used In
any other waj. The section gives the
board power to create new dlslilcts out
of other tenltoij, nequlied by the exten
sion ol the city limits, and to make changes
In the existing dlstilcts as tho boaid may
deem best In the luture.
S.etlons s, s, io and 11 provide for the
