The city council had a short, but very busy session Monday night. All of the councllmen were present ex cept C. D. White, who is absent from the city. The minutos of the previous meet ing were rend and approved and the mayor called for reports of officers. Marshal Potter reported that the sewer bock of the Edwin Ross resi dence was ln very bad condition. He had done some work on it, but it would be an expensive Job to repair the whole sewer. He asked that the street committee look Into the mat ter. The mayor thereupon set 5 o'clock Wednesdav afternnnn whan' rn Investigation should be made and "nlora m . .1 . . . 1 . ... " ' wauu tor me repair ot tne old sewer or the construction of a new one. Attorney Day, Councilman Wheeler, Councilman Dixon and. Coucllman O'Connor made no re ports. Ebrman Bill Disputed A communication was read from the Eisman Hardwood Floor com pany asking that their bill for lay ing the floor in the city hall be promptly paid. On account of having done work not called for In the con tract, the bill was lncrennert fmm $435 to $480 and Eisman claimed the later amount correct. The mayor was not In favor of paying the bill for $480 and thought a reduction should be made from the $435 bill Councilman Dixon said the "only thing to go bv was Eisman's letter of acceptance," and when Mr. Qluck produced the letter It was found that Eisman had filled his bargain. A motion was made and carried that the bill of $435 be paid after da ducting a charge for electricity used wnen planing the floor. Street Bid Submitted The Warren Construction company submitted a bid for street work and paving a portion of Columbia street and McCormick street. Their bid appeared reasonable and their repre sentative stated that the work could be done at an advantago and n sav ing to the taxpayers when their pav ing plant was in operation at West St. Helens and working on the high way. The bid on filling with rock was based on hauling the rock from their quarry near Railroad Addition and when it was explained that earth and rock could be obtained nearer by, the representative of the com pany stated they would investigate the matter of obtaining rock at that place and would reduce the bid on account of a shorter haul. This ap peared to be satisfactory to the council and the matter was laid over until next Monday night. The matter of changes in the con tract as suggested by the contractor on the work now in progress on Causanau street, was not favored by the city attorney and the council thought it best to be guided by the (opinion of the attorney. several matters of minor impor tance were taken up and disposed of, and the council adjourned shortly after 9 o'clock.
