Oct. 26 TUo council wot iu adjourned

ter, relative to the new election law.
Aid. Tindall, from the waterworks
committee, asked for further time to re
port on matters referred to a joint com
Aid. Kennedy, as a member of said
committee asked the pr vilcge of submit
ting a report on the bids referred as to the
waterworks pumping engines Aia.
Blade) moved that the report be read.
Motion carried, and the report was read
as To lows:
Your committee to whom was referred
the bids for furnishing the city with a
pumping engine would state that we find
the bids of the different companies to be
The Worlhin&ton Co 'a bid was on
high duty pump, f 25.650. guaranteed
105,000.000 duty; low duty pump $18.-
vou. guaranteed m.uuu.uuu out?. Titer
allow $5u0 for the old engine which
makes tue high duty engine $25,150 and
tbe low duty engine $18,450.
The Holly Co 'a bid was oa their
high duty pump $24,000, guarantee duty
100 000,000; low dn'.T pump $16 500.
guaranteed duty 60.000.000. They
allow 13.000 for thts old engine which
makes their high duty pump i21,00 and
their low duty pumping eugine $13,500.
The Gordon Co.'s bid on their high,
duty pump $28,050, guaranteed duty
110 000,000; low duty pump $18 545.
guaranteed duty 65.OO0.COO. They will
allow $750 for tbe old pumping engine
which makes tbeir high duty pump
(27.300 and their low duty Dump $17,790.
Tbe Blake Co.'s bid was $25 000 cash
and will allow one cent per pound for the
old pumps. They guarantee a duty of
70,000.000 foot pounds.
The Dean Co. 's bid was $15,180 and a
guaranteed duty of 65 000,000 root
pounds Tbeir other bid was $11500
with a guaranteed duty of 62 500 000
foot pounds. Their bid was on a cash
basis and allowed nothing for the eld en
gine. After goiDg over tbe bids and specifi
cations carefully we And thi Holly Man
ufacturing company's bid on their high
duty Otskill pumping engine is $6 300
less than the Gordon high duty and 5,
093 less than tbe Worthington hi.h duty
Pump as the Worthitg'on compmy's bid
was on a cath basis.
After taking all things into considera
tion we think it is to tbe city's interest to
get a high duty pumping ermine. After
a thorough investigation we find that a
crank and fly-wheel engine is better
adapted and safer for our service where
we have no reservoir or stand pipe than
a direct acting pump
W. P. Tindalt.

laid over. Seconded by Aid Evans, and
report laid over under the law.

ly, to the finance and waterworks com
mittee, mayor and superintendent of
waterworks, and said committee bad not
yet rer. orted. Aid. Corken moved to take
a recess to enable tbe committee to make
a report. Motion carried and a recess
On reassembling of the council the

Aid. Huesing that as the committee had
failed to make a report the council had
a rifcht to take the matter out of the
hands of the committee and act at
pleasure, in which decision he was sus
tained by the city attorney. Aid. Evans

The readers of the Argus will be pleased
to learn that there is at least one dreaded
disease that science has been able to cure
in all its stages, and that is catarrh.
Hall's Catarrh Cure is the only positive
cure now known to the medical fraternity.
Catarrh being a constitutional disease, re
quires a constitutional treatment. Hall's
Catarrh tjure is taken internally, acting
directly upon the blood and mucous sur
faces of the system, thereby destroying
the foundation of tbe disease, and giving
tbe patient strength by building up tbe
constitution and assisting nature in doing
its work. Tbe proprietors have so much
faith in its curative powers, that they
offer one hundred dollars for any case
that it fails to cure. Send for list of tes
