BILL FOR $770
APPROVED AT $100
Judge E. E. Parmenter Fixes Commis
sioner's Fees for Assessment of
No, 4 Drainage District.
Judge E. E. Parmenter in the county
court this morning allowed the fees of
the commissioner of the No. 4 storm
drain district at $100. The bill for
fees was first put in at $770 by Henry
Grothe, the commissioner, who was
represented by H. C. Haverfield. Mayor
McCaskrins chief lieutenant in the de
struction of property. The work con
sisted of the assessment of about 2G
ois and of these it was necessary to
figure the proportion on only 19.
Judge Parmenter, when he approved
the isiessment roll, did not approve
the commissioner's fees, and made an
investigation which resulted in his fix
ing $100 as a fair fee. Mr. Guothe was
not present in court, but Mr. Haver
field was. and he threatened various
appeals from the court. No appear in
such a case is jiossible, and the ate
was fixed with the consent of the city's
repiestntatives. who were of the same
opia on as the court in regard to the
ciiginal claim of $770.

All the news all the time
With a pot of paste, brushes and hun
dreds of bills on which were printed
in large figures "4o0," 15 members of
the Y. M. C. A. executed a very clever
plan of announcing their campaign for
an increase in membership from 300 to
400 members. These young men re
sponded to an invitation from the Y.
M. C. A. membership committee, and
the work was done in a very thorough
manner. The residents this morning
presented many interesting theories as
to those bills. The bill posters assem
bled at the association rooms at 10
o'clock and immediately began their
work of decorating the sidewalks. The
task was completed by 11:30, and as a
reward for their labors an oyster sup
per was in waiting for the young men.
Owing to the small membership at
the Y. M. C. A., the membership com
mittee saw the need of a rally. The in
dications are that six weeks' successful
work will be the result of their efforts.
