All Future Meetings Will be Hold
in Millers Hall
Tim oily council met Inst night
with every member present and tho
innyor in tho chair. Thoy met in
Miller's hall which iii future
will 1)0 their regular mooting place.
The hall has been divided into sev
eral rooms and the southeast corner
room is tho onu that tho council lms
ranted. They have had a large
tabic about l)xr made for their u-e
and when they wore all assembled
around it they looked like business
and they meant business.
One ordinance was passed relative
to poll tax and work on streets and
alloys. A great many important
questions wore discussed especially
tho questions of sidewalks and street
City Attorney llardeastle read
selections from tho statutes and ses
sion acts showing that at this stago
of tho cities formation it was possible
to make, a special levy against prop
er' v owners for tho purpose of con
structing feltfowalks. This is of
vital importance to the present citi
zens of Anadarki) for by making
this special levy at this time the
owner of every lot whether ho 1m? a
speculatie- or a resident citizen,
will have to bear his equal share in
tho construction of tho citv walks.
However, before these walks are
built tho street grades will have to
be run so that the walks can conform
to the established grades. A com
petent city engineer will run these
grades at once and make profiles of
the streets. These grades will bo
established so as to drain away all
thostuface water in the city. If these
matters are properly attended to it
will insure the erection of all build
ings on a universal grade and will
do away with the necessity of dam
age suits in tho future. Bv a reso
lution the council decided to extend
an invitation to the public to meet
with them next Monday night for
tho purpose of discussidg the spec
ial levy referred to and also the
mo 10 important question of proper
sanitation. Kvcry interested citi
zen should accept this invitation
and come to tho council chamber
next Monday evening.

The average reader is familiar
with American school boy composi
tions, but samples of tho ISuglish
variety are scarce Hero aro soma
recently given in an ISuglish publi
cation: Asked to explain the cause
of the Transvaal disturbances, a boy
of ten wrote this "Ivrugar and
KauncrhuliHiii is one. He is a man
of bind. Mr. Chainberliiighas wrote,
to him say in' come t .t and lite or
else give up the bind of the ISuglish
you have took. He is a hoardutoh
mau and a wicked heethiu. Lord
Kitchener has sent for his gory bind
and to bring back hisscanderlus lied
ded or alive." And another boy's
essay describes Mr. Gladstone as
having "lovd everybody. Ho lovd
publicans ond chillers and irishmen,
lie wanted the Irish to come to lSng
land and have home rool, but Mr.
Chamberlain says, no, no. so alara
got his bind up and killed Mr. Far
nol. Mr. Gladstone died with great
rispect, and is buried in Westmin
ister with piecoful ashes." Com
pared with theso versions of modern
history, the following on Queen
lSlizaboth is faithful: "Queou
ISlizabcth was a vnrgin queon, and
she was never married. She was ho
fond of dressoH that she was ncvor
