ments. Alderman Baker mado several strong
speeches against paving streets, at
this timo, so far from business streets.
Alderman Poago had in tho mean
time arriyed from the Walnut Springs
picnic and soon became acquainted
with the matter undor disoussion and
ontcred into it with vim and determin
ation in opposition to thoi views ex
pressed by Aldermen Baker and Laoy.
He wanted bis ward to get her pro
rata share oV street improvements.
Ho stated, further, that North Filth
street was the only paved street in
that patt of town aud he did not think
it fair or just that petitions from the
citizens of the First ward should be
treated as this was, especially when
tho work was so badly needed. It
was his undorbtanding that resolu
tions had s imti time ago boen passod
by the former council ordering street
improvements of various streets
thr uhi ut. the city and that the
work bo takon up and performed in
the ordor from timo to timo passed
upon ' This was all ho desired or
abked to bo dono with tho petition in
haud grant it with the understanding
that the work bo done when tho other
streets passed upon had been paved.
Alderman King stutod that no
petitions from tho business streets had
been presented and ho was in favor of
petitioners having their Btreets paved
when tho city had the monoy to do it
with. Ho moved that tho petition bo
granted and filed and that tho work
bn dono in its regular order when the
city had tho money.
Alderman Hiwking spoke strongly
in favor of paving Austin 6treet.
Alderman Baker again Bpoku
warmly in support of hia former posi
tion and statod that it would be a
direct benefit to him to have Hcirmg
avonuo paved, as he owned consider
able property on that Btreet, but he
not only represented that ward but the
whole city and ho believed that the
good of tho whole city would bo better
subserved by paving tho business part
of tho oity first.
Upon motion of Alderman Lacy
tho matter was rofcrred to tho city
engineer to dotermino whether or not
two-thirds of tho property ownors had

quest the mayor to enforce tho Sun
day law, especially in regard to the
closing of saloons, aleo to enforce the
law in regard to street vondors of ioo
oream and hoky poky on Sundays.
Alderman Baker thought that we

saloons already and stated that the
adoption of tho resolution would mako
tho law no stronger, and therefore uso
less, hut against that part referring to
prohibiting the salo of hoky poky.
Aldermen Laoy and Payne wantod
to soo the lawn enforced, as tho surest
means of repealing suoh laws if they
