streets and from Sixteenth to Eigh

nance covering this entire district was
favorably acted on some time ago,
along with a large number of small
jobs. In some cases the property own
ers urged that the city take no action,
as they expected to lay the walks
themselves, but in a large majority of
instances this has not been done and
now the council is anxious to secure
the necessary- judgment in county
court in order that the improvements
can be made without turther delay.
CIT METER RATES.
An ordinance providing for a slight
reduction in water meter rates was
considered and finally adopted. It was
offered by Commissioner M. T. Rud
gren and is the same measure which
was under consideration some time
ago, except that it does not provide
for churches, schools and other public
institutions paying for water used.
Commissioner Rudgren took the posi
tion that all users of water, especially
schools, churches and institutions of
like character should pay for water
service, but could not secure sufficient
support for the proposition and there
fore was forced to eliminate it. The
minimum yearly rate la cut from J12
to $9 and the water bills will hereaf
ter be made out in cubic feet instead
of gallons, in order to conform to the
readings of the meter. Previously the
readings have been taken in cubic
feet and reduced to gallons for the
consumer's statement, .necessitating
much, clericaf work. Under the new
plan, the bills will be made out In
cubic feet, thereby giving the patron
an opportunity to compare the meter
reading with the statement from the
cit clerk's office. The reduced rates
will be effective at once,
The city was authorized to purchase
2,500 feet of hose for the fire depart
ment and 500 feet for the sewer de
partment, through a resolution offered
by Commissioner Archie Hart. Provi

W. Newberry to attend the fire chiefs'

when employed by the waterworks de
partment Under the provisions of the
workmen's compensation act, the city
is forced to remunerate employes in
jured while in discharge of their du
ties. The matter was laid over until
the next meeting.
The sum of $1,600 was ordered tak
en from the contingent fund and plac
ed in the election fund by a resolution
offered by Commissioner Rudgren,
which was adopted. This will provide
for the expenses of the approaching
bond vote on Sept. 11.
The appointment of Miss Ina B. j
Stone as second deputy city clerk was '
confirmed by the council. She is an
experienced stenographer. Wiljiam
Wynn was awarded the contract for
the construction of a shed and hose
tower at the city barns on Sixth ave
nue between Ninth and Tenth streets.
A resolution providing for the in
crease in salary of several employes
of the waterworks department was in
troduced by Commissioner Jonas Bear,
but action was deferred. S. J. Woodin
presented a claim for $75 against the
city, claiming that sum due him be
cause of a sewer which he laid at hfs
property on the strength of what the
city proposed to do. Later the city
changed its mind about installing the
mains, making the improvement of
Mr. Woodin a dead loss to him. The
matter was taken under advisement.
Next Monday being Labor day, a reso
lution was passed providing for the
week's session to be held Tuesday af
