They reported a building inspection

them with instructions to prepare

They made a report in regard to the
right of the city to let the contract for
public improvements without first
advertising for bids, and submitted
i he opinion of the city solicitor in re?
gard to if. Mr. Watts' said tnat up
to March, lSSC, the law was
that all public improvements should
be let to the highest bidder
and notice given at least thirty days
before the work is finally let, by ad
vertising inanewspaper published in
the city, but at the general assembly
of 1SS<5 the law had been amended so
that the construction of public build
ings shall be performed by day labor
under the supervision and direction
of the city engineer, or such other
person as may be designated by th
council and said engineer or othe
person designated shall be governed
by such rules and regulations, as the
council may deem necessary and con
sisteutwith the prevailing laws gov?
erning labor on public works, but if
the council deem it not to be to the
best interests of the city to have the
work done by day labor, then it may
be let to contract to the lowest re
pbnsible bidder, after thirty days'
notice by advertisement printed not
less than four times in one or more
newspapers is given. "I am, there?
fore, of the opinion-.'" said Mr. Watts,
"that the council can have the work
done without the thirty days' adver?
tisement provided, the work is done
by day labor and constantly with the
laws govnoring labor on public
works and that the citycan designate
the engineer ot the Norfolk and West?

A resolution was offered ordering
that the construction of the overhead

How the Firemen Enjoy Themselves
When There Ja Little Doing-.
A TrsiKs reporter was loafing at the
engine house the other day, and with
a view to making himself, agraeable
to a number of lire laddies who were
sitting lazily around a table, he con?
cluded to tell a little yarn. So he
went right ahead and told them what
he had seen a fire company do in Bal?
timore upon one occasion (a place be
has never visited). "The alarm
sounded there one night," he said,
"and, by George, so thoroughly are
those men and horses drilled and
trained that they were out and four
blocks away in just seven-eights of a
second after the gong first sounded.
Its a fact, gentlemen, that-V
''Pshaw," interrupted Chief Knepp,
who was smoking a two cent cigar,
and fanning himself leisurely, '-that's
nothing. Here last winter we received
a telephone message from West
Campbell street telling us that a lamp
was on the verge of exploding. We
at once gave the alarm, struck out
with the carriage, arrived at the
house and had just made a plug con?
nection when the explosion oc?
"And that ain't all," he resumed
after a brief pause, daring which he
adjusted a suspender and observed
with a defiant look an amused and
doubting expression which came over
the countenance of his listener.
'Talking about trained horses re?
minds me. See those hor?es yonder?
Well, I'll pat them against any other
two trained horses 1 ever heard of.
They heard that lamp explode on
Campbell street, and shortly after
that one exploded in a negro shanty
on Railroad avenue. On accouut of
their remarkable acuteiiesa of
hearing, they heard it, and
the very moment they heard
it, they knew exactly what
was up. Well, sir, those horses went
lit out of their stalls, took their]
places at the hose carriage, and when
i policeman came along fifteen min-1
utes afterwards and waked us up, all
we bad to do was to slide down the
pole, touch the spring that held the
harness, and we were olT. You don't j
have to go to Baltimore or any other
city to see great exploits by expert]
firemen and trained horse?. You can |
see them fight here in Roanoke."
< Ihief Knepp had gone over into a
corner of the room, and it was fully
five minutes after he had ceased talk?
ing that all of them burst into roars I
of laughter. After they had regained
their normal solemnity, the chief said I
to the reporter: "Young man, if
you want to make firemen believe any
lies as that one you sprung

THE AM ERICA X HOG.
May Carry Food From the Table
After Eating His Fill.
The majority of the supreme court \
of Pennsylvania decided a very curi?
ous case last week which cannot fftii
to interest all hotel and restaurant
keepers, as well as the traveling pub?
lic at large. After a full argument or
the case on both sides before the
bench the court held that "at the
table of a hotel or restaurant a guesv
is entitled to all food that is set before
him at table, and that he is privileged |
to carry away for future consumption
whatever he may not be able or dis?
posed to eat at the time."
This decision of the highest court
grew out of a curious case where a I
traveler, not having a good appetitt
for breakfast, gathered up nearly all
of the porter-house steak and other
substantials before him which he didj
not consume, and wrapping them in a |
newspaper, proceeded on his way, de?
termined to digest them when his ap?
petite grew better. The hotel man
indignantly protested against such
liberty as well as bad manners, and
hence the trouble.
While the court has probably de?
cided the law and justice side of the
case property, it must be confessed
that the bad manners of the affair
were inexcusable and can -find no I
sanction in any code of propriety or
crowd Present and a Xnmbcr gentlemanly conduct. When a travel
