was read as was also a printed speech
by the author of the bill. A motion was
n.ade to postpone action and secure a
speaker on the opposite of the question,
but after some discussion it was with
drawn and the vote on the main ques
tion was taken which resulted in a
chorus of ayes and no noes. The ex
pression of the club had been asked for
by Senator Odell. There were a num
oer of people outside of the Club in at
tendance in anticipation of a speech by
Senator Cashman.
The main other feature of the meet
ing was the report of the Committee on
Ornamental Street Lights, which report
ed that it had been fairly successful in
interesting property owners along Pa
cific avenue and on Fourth and Fifth
streets as far south as Becker avenue
to the extent of buying the posts. It is
understood that the city will supply the
current after the new posts are erect
ed, in lieu of pther street lights. There
are portions of the territory named that
had not been reported, but little doubt
remains but that united action can be
secured to place this handsome Im
provement on the streets named. The
idea of the committee is that if one
part of the city's business section can
be induced to begin, other sections will
soon follow. A very interesting paper
on the subject of ornamental street
lighting was read at the meeting by Mr.
Anthony, who represents a firm selling
ornamental lighting posts.
In the absence of President "Wellin,
Russell Spieer presided at the meeting.
A number of minor routine matters were
disposed of.

A. Broklund were the only ones who
took out a health and accident insurance
policy inHhe Continental Casualty Co.,
of Chicago, through their representative,
who called on the Great Northern shops
last week. The boys thought the only
safe thing to do was to insure their
lives as they met with some slight ac
cidents lately. The former fell down
in the pit head first where it was three
feet of water. When he feil the water
forced 10 feet high and 8 feet around.
The boiler washer got somewhat scar
ed from the excitement and started to
run for the office thought a boiler had
gone up in pieces. The latter named
person was stationed on the very edge
of a door cab on one of Jim's big loco
motives carrying a jack with his part
ner which was so laughable that he
stepped too far back and fell on a big
plank and broke his ankle, and had to
lay off for a week with Dr. Frost to at
tend him. When nametl accident oc
curred it stopped all work in the shops
for a second because he fell with such
hard force that a wonderful racket oc
curred. Everybody took their right hand
behind their left ear and listened thot
a cyclone was around rasing "Cain" with
the property. The boys step more light
ly now.—Contributed.
