at next meeting.
City Attorney Hass presented an ordi
nance prohibiting the use of bicycles on
sidewalks in the city, and Alderman
Bladel moved its adoption. Mr. Oeo.
M. Looslcy was given permission to ad
dress the council favoring an amendment
to the ordinance by restricting the use of
the wheel to certain streets. On motion
of Alderman Schroeder the ordinance
was referred to the street and alley com
mittee to report.
City Attorney Ilass informed the coun
cil of its improper proceeding in the
manner of sale of city property at its
last meeting, cited the law in the cue,
and offered an ordinance embodying the
lawful requirements. On motion of Al
derman Knox the ordinance was referred
back to the city attorney for amend
ments. A'derman Corken, from the Ore
and light committee, recommended pay
ment of $14 to the tern porory Wideawake
Hook and Ladder company, the order to
be placed in the hands of the chief of the
fire department for proper disbursement.
Recommendation adopted, and amount
allowed by unanimous vote.
The clerk read a report of the special
committee on street lighting as follows:
We, the undersigned committee, ap
pointed by the mayor, in compliance
with a resolution passed at the last reg
ular meeting wherein we were instructed
to take the necessary steps to bring be
fore this council the question of reletting
the contract for lighting the city, and
such other information obtainable, snd
make such recommendations to the coun
cil for your guidance that in our judg
ment would be for the best interests of
the city subject to your approval and
That after a careful examination of all
the points under consideration as in
structed by the resolution, we would beg
leave to report and recommend for adop
tion the following:
1. Whkbkas. The city has been dur
ing the last eight years wholly or par
tially lighted by the tower system; also
during the past three years a majority of
the lights have been low lights, giving
na ample opportunities of testing the
qualifications of both systems fairly and
impartially, not only having occular
proof ourselves but having the opinion
of citizens, and it would appear to us
that the verdict against the tower system
was almost universal; Therefore we
come to the conclusion that after eight
years continuous trial, the tower system
haa failed to meet the expectations and
is entirely impracticable in the business
portions of the city and on the outstreets
where the trees are numerous, and espec
ially in summer when the foilage is on
the trees they utterly rail to Hgnl toe
sidewalks, and from their location on the
Street corners they light but a small por
tion of the street", and we believe the
public will bear ns out in our opinion.
8. We would, therefore, recommend
the abololiton of the tower system and
adopt in its stead the low light system aus
pended npon wires as near the centre of
the intersection as poRsible, the lights to
be from twelve to twenty feet above the
street, as the council may determine.
8. We would recommend stanrtard
lights of 2.000 power, there be not less
than 100 or more than 120 lights, the
contract to bo for three years, any addi
tional lights the council may order dur
ing the first half of the contract period
shall be furnished at the same rate per
light as contract; any furnished during
the latter ha'f of contract the price to be
that agreed-upon by the council and the
company furnishing the light.
4. The number of lights assigned to
each ward to be apportioned by a fair
and impartial committee comprised of one
alderman from each ward whose duty it
will be to study the map. and if neces
sary go over the territory; the require
ments and sizes of wards to receive due
consideration and report to the council.
who will assign to each ward its fair and
5. The lights in each ward to be lo
cated by the aldermen of the ward, who
ill confer with the aldermen from ad
joining wards with reference to the loca
tion of joint lights. Whenever disputes
arise that cannot be settled amicably by
the aldermen the question is to be re
ferred to the council, who will make the
location in dispute. All locations will
be passed upon and adopted by the coun
cil, who will have a list of locations pub
lished as soon after letting as possible, to
give citizens who may feel aggrieved by
the locations an opportunity to file com
plaints and have a hearing before the
council before the final locations are
adopted, the intent being to make as
near as possible a fair and impartial lo
cttion of lights, to have lights placed
where they will best serve the public.
6. That the city clerk be amboriz-d
to have the usual advertisements in the
dailv papers of this tity ami others if the
council thinks advisable for the legal
length of tim-i, the letting to not be later
than the first meeting in September and
earlier if the council thinks advisable, the
city clerk with the assistance of the fire
and light committee to draw up the stiec
ideations, conditions nnd stipulate the
amount or bond required s soon ns pos
siblc for the information of bidders.
The question of municipal corporations
owning and manufacturing iheir own
electric light has received some little con
sideration by your committee on account
of their having been from time to time
considerable informal conversation with
members of the Brush Electric Liirht
company of this city with reference to
the sale of their plant to the cit3, to be
placed in the waterworks building", where
a surplus of steam and engine power nec
essary to operate the plant is supposed
to exist. But after a careful examina
tion in company with experts well versed
in steam and machine power, we came
to the conclusion that for steam power
ami boiler capacity we had abundanc; but
j as to engine power we had none to spare
! except the old pumping engines, which
were considered of too slow a motion for
an electric light engine, and could not be
successfully speeded up to give us any
encouragement to seriously consider the
There is still another important Doin
in connection with this question that we
must not lose sight of. That is the city's
liability to incur any more indebtness
either temporary or bonded. You all
j fully understand that the city has no
available cash to make this purt-h tse. If
made you must adopt one of the two r
maining plsus. either to make temporary
loans or issue electric light bonds. We
are of the opinion there can be ro lega
objections to our incurring temporary in
debtedness providing we keep within
reasonable bounds. But we will admit
this is only our individual opinion Wi
nave not submitted this question to our
legal advisor for an opinion, which we
would do should the matter receive
further serious consideration.
And as our bonded indebtedness is now
far beyond the limit allowed by state la -v.
unless in emergencies, which we believe
would require special legislation iu each
individual case, in thi9 case we are of the
opinion it could be considered an emer
gency. We have also gleaned a few facts and
figures from the experience of cities who
furnish their own light and we must sd
mit in most all cases they appear to be
satisfactory. Some points from our
limited information we did not fully un
derstand, the wide difference in the cost
per light of lighting two cities of about
equal population and number of litrhts in
the same section of country. And upon
the whole it is our opinion th.at muni
cipalities can operate and manufacture
their own light cheaper and give better
satisfaction than by contract if properly
managed and kept, out of politics. But
electricity not having attained that high
state of perfection that all electricians
admit must be developed in the near fu
ture that will make the system as near
perfection and permanent as can be hoped
to obtain for a generation. We under
stood successful experiments are being
perfected which will revoutionize the
present system reducing the cost per
light from one to two hundred per cent.
Therefore, gentlemen, while we belli ve
it would be economy for the city to run
and furnish its own liiilit, when we con
sider al! the points we do not believe the
time is favorable to make any radical
changes. We woulil therefore recom
mend the letting of a contract to light the
city for three years not according to what
is known the 1'hiladelphia schedule,
which we have tried for several years,
which has proved very unsatisfactory;
we wonld recommend in future all con
tracts be let for all dark nights, lights to
be lit before dark and continue until day
light. Respectfully submitted this 4tb
day of August, 1890.

The clerk read a communication from
the Brush Electric company as follows:
Gentlemen Referring to the late ac
tion of your board, in relation to light
ing the streets of the city, we would re
spectfully call your attention to the clause
in the existing contract, under which the
city is now lighted, in which the right to
purchase our plant upon an agreed price
is reserved, and ask that you appoint a
committee with power to act, to meet
with a like committee appointed by this
company, at such time and place as you
may suggest, to determine whether an
agreement aa therein contemplated can be
reached, and the plant or so much there
of as may be needed by the city, be sold
and transferred to the city. This com
pany baa appointed as such committee

There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that ib by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of mucous lining of the Eustach
ian tube. Wken this tu le gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sot nd or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless thn in.
fiammation can be tak sn ont and this
tube restored to Its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever. Nine
cases out of ten are cat sed by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condi
tion of the mucous surfaces.
We will give one hut dred dollars for
any case of deafness caused by catarrh

The city council at its regular meeting
taat evening practically -decided to aban

much trouble, and the public generally ao
much dissatisfaction, and to have a pro
vision for low lights as the standard in
future arrangements for illuminating "the
A number of bicyclists appeared before
the council, and through Mr. Gaorge M.
Loosley as spokesman, entered a remon
strance against the proposed ordinance
prohibiting bicyclists from the use of all
aidewalks. Mr. Loosley presented the case
of the wheelmen in a very reasonable
light. They were not asking any privileges
that would discommode the public, mere
ly in the interests of sport, and on the
paved streets would be perfectly willing
to be ruled off the walk. But on many of
the other streets it would be impossible
to U9e the wheel at certain times of the
year. Many business men used bicycles
as a meanB of convenience and practical
economy in getting about, and not for
playthings, and the council should not
too hastily discriminate against them.
The ordinance was referred to the street
and alley committee. While every pre.
caution should be taken to protect the
rights of pedestrians.the wheelmen should
be treated fairly, and no doubt will be.
It is believed that an ordinance can be
framed giving them the use of walks
on certain conditions which will inflict
penalties upon those who are inclined to
be reckless or indiscrete, but not molest,
ing fair minded citizens who know
something of the rights of others, and
what is becoming ii themselves.
