City Council Meet.
The City Council held another special
meeting last evening. The first busi
ness to be brought before the council
was the matter of changit.g the grade
of Xorth Main Street from Rcrlin Street
to Sixth Streets. City Engineer C. S.
Currier went over the ground yesterday
afternoon with several of the Electric
road ollicials and he failed to see why it
was necessary to change the grade.
The communication of the city engineer
C. W. Scarff of llurlington, special
agent of the Vermont Telephone and
Telegraph Company was present. The
company want to erect new poles and
put a new line in (Intercut parts ot the
city. 1 he aldermen and mayor nave
suggested that that they run their wires
on the poles of J. S. Viles. but they
very strenuously objected to any such
proposition. .The company just as soon
place their wires on some of the tele
phone, company's poles, but not on elec
tric light poles.
The mayor did not see any reason
why Ihev should not unite with ,1. S.
Viles. He also thought that if they

want a. half dozen smaller companies
supplying the people. In other words, if
the c'ily has water works of its own,
it wants to choke nff or condemn the
water of smaller companies, or it' possi
ble buy them up. Most of the water
companies over csiim.ile the value of
their plains, and the city cannot afford
to purchase them.
Mr. 'helps of the Harre Water Com
