Mute from Institute at Fulton Loeated
Leon Downey. 17 years old, a deaf
mute who ran away from the Deaf

last week was caught in Columbia at
9 o'clock last night by Charles Mit

his capture he was wandering around
the streets with another mute who
ran away when his companion was
accosted. After being taken to the
city jail, Downey wrote on paper an
swer to questions which were put to
him in a similar manner. It was
learned that he has a '-ther living
in Amoret, Mo., to whom he asked the
police to telephone his whereabouts
and to ask if he wished his son to re
turn to school at Fulton.
The police called S. W. Walker, su
perintendent of the Deaf and Dumb
Institute at Fulton, who had previ
ously telephoned the Columbia police
to be on the watch for the boy.
Walker said Downey wrote to him of
his whereabouts on arriving in Col

The City Council finally passed an
ordinance, last night, for a concrete
pavement on Sexton Road from Third
Street to the city limits. More than
an hour was spent discussing the pav
ing of this street. The property own
ers from Garth avenue west having
petitioned for a pavement for this
part of the street, the council was
met with threats of a remonsrance
unless the street were also paved from
Third street to Garth avenue. After
hearing property owners discuss both
sides of the question, the council tried
to take such action as would insure
the paving of the street from Third
street to the city limits.
E. B. Cauthorn reported for the fi
nance committee that there were
back taxes prior to 1911 due and un
paid to the amount of $0000. These
date back as far as 1907. For the
same period the unpaid personal
taxes amount to $2500. Every possi
ble effort Is now being made to col
lect these taxes. The council decided
that as soon as they can legally do
so suits will be brought against ail
persons owing taxes for the year 1911.
The plan is to prevent an accumula

The fire department committee of
the City Council, L. J. Slate. E. B.
Cauthorn and Fountain Rothweil, was
instructed last night to Investigate
the fire equipment of other cities and
recommend changes Tor Columbia.
Poor fire protection was given by
Mayor W. S. St. Clair as a reason why
insurance rates are higher for Colum
bia than for other cities of this size.
It was brought out that Jefferson City
and many other small cities have
much better fire equipment than Col
umbia. Fountain Rothweil said the burst
ing of fire hose could hi nrovpntoii
by an expenditure or $75 for appara
tus to shut the pressure off at the
water plug. With the hose now In
use. the water is turned off at the
nozzle and the heavy pressure often
bursts the hose. Even the horses, i
Is said, are worn out. One of them is
about twenty-five years old, according
to Mr. Rothweil, and is unfit for the
fire service. He has been in use by
the department for twelve years.
Bills were granted from the water
and light fund amounting to $2412.51
