The Committee which fiad been ap

caeration of the many stray dogs and
other animals which roam the streets,
reported that a suitable piece of land
had been bought and bids were 'being
advertised for for the erection of the
necessary buildings. They also recom
mended the appointment of Herman
Wolf as deputy poiindmastcr, he having
agreed to furnish a horse and wagon
and all other necessary paraphernalia at
a salary of $25 per month in addition
to the fees arising.from the impounding
of animals. The report of the commit
tee was accepted and Mr. Wolf em

Bond Ordinances Up.
Two ordinances'camc before the coun
cil for their first reading, the first of
which was for regulating the bonds re
quired of city officers and prescribing
the conditions under which salaried
city employes may absent themselves
from tho city and their duties. The pro
vision is made that an officer must get
leave of absence from the mayor, must
provide a substitute acceptable to the
mayor and must compensate the sub
stitute himself without cost to tho city.
In reference to bonds the change is
made that permits of city officials to
givo personal bond, whereas the or
dinance provided that bond must be
given in a competent surety company.
The second ordinance is ono of great
importance. It is an ordinance provid-
ing rules of procedure for the council,
the order in which business shall be
transacted nt thd meetings, and divid
ing the council up into committees to
pass upon and have charge of matters
coming under their respective heads.
The effect of this ordinance will bo
to greatly facilitate business at tho
meetings of the board of aldermen, and
by bringing tho different departments
of the city under tho control of small r
committees, which .will familiarize it
self with its particular department and
give better and more intelligent ad
ministration of the city's affairs.
Mayor Kinney rend a communication
from Governor Kibbey inviting tho
council to select fivo delegates to rep
resent the city at the national irriga
tion congress to be held. at Albuquerquo "
this fall. It not appearing that any
one present cared to go at his own ex
pense, tho matter was laid over until
tho next meeting in the hope that
someone will come forward who will
promiso to go if appointed.
The bond of Floyd Blevins as super
visor of streets was received and ac- v
cepted by tho council.
This was one of the shortest meet- ,
ings yet held by the present council,
and the meetings will be much shorter
and more totho point when the city
fathers get to workjng under their
new rules of order.
