general repairs made to board sldo
walks throughout the city.
The engineer called a itentlon to a for?
mer report bo bad made recommending
that three-foot brick sidewalks be sub?
stituted in place of board. He states
that they can be put down for the samo
price of a boardwalk. Tbe work being
done by A. J. Bauks on Llok run was
progressing; slowly, and owing to tbo in?
clement weather he had ordered tho
contractor to get permission from tho
ofiloe for each day's work. Other mis?
cellaneous work ordered by tne Council
had bsen done, The question of three
foot brick sidewalks was referred to tbo
street commit too.
Reports wore sIbo submitted from tbo
city sergeant, keeper of tho almahouBo,
cleric ot the markets, and wore ordered
to bo tiled.
Mr. Terry, from tho commltteo on ac?
counts, submitted a report recommend?
ing tho payment of bills apnroved by
bis committee amounting to 820,730 44,
among which was interest account,
85,363 50; lights, 31.002 03; sinking fund,
S3,000.00; salaries, 81,138.GO. The re?
port was agreed to.
Mr. McClelland, from the committee
on finance, submitted & report showing

and'treasurer, which were received and
filed. He also reported favorably on

Tbo report was adopted,
Tbe finance committee also reported
adversely on tbe employment of a
special officer to look after dog taxes
and delinquent licenses. &s well as ad?
versely on tbe report of oity engineer
recommending the payment of the
street foroes Boml-monthly, both of
which views were sustained by the
Council. The committee also sub?
mitted resolutions appropriating 3375
for salaries and 81.500 for bridges,
both of which were adopted.
Considerable discussion arose when
the finance committt* presented & reso?
lution to fix the salary of the judge of
tbe hustings court at 81,800 per annum.
Mr. Wilson was opposed to the resolu?
tion on the ground that there was plenty
of time yet to oonslier this question;
that the judge wbo would be elected by
the present general assembly would not
go into office until January 1, 1897, and
that tho next Caunoil should have somo>
thing to say in tbe matter.
Messrs. Buckner, Loughery and An?
drews spoke on the question and ad?
vised that action be taken at onoe; that
the present salary was unquestionably
too high and that aa a precautionary
measure the ordinance should be paned.
Mr. Buckner stated that he had been
informed by Judge Robertson, tbe
former judge of the court, that it was a
question yet to be decided when the
term of thejudgoof the hustings oourt
for this o ty really commenced. It is
possible that the term wauld commenco
on the 1st day of January, 1800, audit
may be that it does not commenco until
January 1, 1897.
Mr. Guy endeavored to amend the
ordinance so as to provide a salary of
82,n> o, but this was defeated by a vote

"Such reflections on the governmen?

Mr. Barnes briefly urged immediate ac?

seconded the resolution. Tho day's pro?

character and devoid of interest.
An unusal number ot bills have been
