Mayor Opposes Paving. Mayor
Mueller has decided that he will not
sign the resolutions for new paving
which were passed Wednesday night
an tO he had found out the condition
of the paving fund. He will refuse to
sign the resolutions if It is found that
it will be necessary to certificate the
cost of the intersections and the ex
cess. "I am not favorable to this plan
this year," stated the mayor, "as it in
creases the Coating debt of the city
when there is no immediate need of it.
If the paving is badly needed it would
be a different matter, but with this
city having almost double the amount
of paving of any other city of its slxe
in the etate, I can't see the need of
running into debt for new paving.
Under the certificate plan we have to
arrange for the payment each year to
retire the certificates which come due,
and this cuts the appropriation down
at a frightful rate, if the figures which
have been shown me are correct." A
careful investigation of the needs of
the paving and the condition of the
fund will be made by his honor before
he does anything with the resolutions

toward her parents home. The horse
became frightened, It Is alleged, and

her by threatening to take his own

that a child was born to Mrs. Wlrsan,
the petition states. In spite of the
child, it Is declared, Wilson continued
his cruel treatment. The petition says
that Wilson loaded a shot gun and kept
it by his bed with the avowed inten
tion of killing her. So frightened did
she become, it is said, that ehe took
the gun and hid it for fear of her life.
In April of this year Mrs. Wilson left
her husband's home, but, according to
the petition, returned on the promise
of her husband to reform. The peti
tion says, however, that he became
even more violent, and that a week
ago 6he gave up and went to live with
her parents. Mrs. Wilson asks $100
