year 1865, ond out of his possession grew
the long standing Ellis vs. Cable suit
which for 30 years occupied the attention
of tbe courts, and which when it reached
the supreme court of the Uuited States
bad lost all semblance to tbe original pro
ceedings, and which in the end was de

referred to the street and alley committee
and city attorney to report, with a view
to meeting any rea boo able damages that
may have accrued to the property in
question by reason of the viaduct im
The pstition of the base ball associa

the east end of town for and against the
use of a certain portion of Forty-third
street for the ball park, were presented
and referred to the street and alley com

The committee after looking into the
matter, authorized tbe club to go ahead.
The petition of T. S. Silvis and others
for tbe city to build a plank sidewalk
along Twelfth street from the south side
of Ninth aveuue to the city limits, the
property holders to extend the same to
