advisability of instituting a system for toe
inspection of milk, and submitted a reso
lution therefor which bad Deen drawn by
the city attorney and the sanitary commit
tee of the Bosri of Health, and hat been
adopted by the Board of Health. The
ordinance provides for a milk inspector
and the condemnation of adulterated milk
or milk from diseosed cows, and milk
faidng to reach a spesitic gravity. The
Inspector is to receive a fee of one cent per
cow or Inspection.
Action on this ordinance, which was
opposed by Councilmten Wagner and Crain
and favored by Counoilman Mabry, wes
deterred until January.
The joint committees-street lignting
and franchise committees-through Coun
cilman Berunteln, re orted favorably on

condition that twenty five additional
lights be require4, and the right is
reserved to the city to locate and change
any or all the lights. The report of the
committee was accepted and the contract

the fact that the meat ihspector's salary in
fees amounted last month to over $ 17S,
which is a larger salary than was intended
