It Was Presented: to -'the Council Last Night. DAMAGED OR BASKRUPT . SALES One of the Businesses Which Halt Pay License Other Ordinances Pre sented and Referred. Three important ordinances were pre sented at the meeting of the city council last night. One of these is a new license ordinance calculated to increase the rev enues of the city from this source. It was referred. The next ordinance is In tended to suppress the nickle-in-the-slot machines in Topeka; and the last ordi nance makes it a misdemeanor to sell to bacco in any form or opium to boys or girls under 16 years of age. This ordi nance was referred very appropriately to the committee on public health. The principal change made by the new license ordinance is that a tax of $5 is levied on every theatrical troupe that gives a performance in Topeka. Among the provisions of the. ordinance are the following: Chiropodists, each, $ 1 per day, $3 per week, $10 per month, 80 per year. Grain exchange, $50 per year.

I be ordinance also provides that all junk dealers and keepers of second hand stores must keep a record of all articles purchased. Any violations of the provi sions of the ordinance may be punished by a fine of not less than $5 or more than $100. About Slot Msehlnea. The ordinance to suppress nickle-in-the-siot machines will be considered at the next meeting. It will be noticed that the ordinance says nothing about penny-in-the-slot machines or machines where coin other than nickles will have the desired effect. This is a grave over sight and should be rectified ere some body is led astray by putting his hard earned pennies into the' infernal machine. A part of the ordinance is as follows: Section 1 That from and after the taking effect of this ordinance it shall be unlawful for any person to maintain or operate any nickle-in-the-slot machine in any place under his control in the city of Topeka. Section 2 It shall be unlawful for any person or persons to help, aid or assist any person, company or corporation, in operating or maintaining any nickle-in-the-slot machine. Section 3 Any person convicted of violating any of the provisions of this ordinance shall be Coed in a sum not leas than $5, or more than $50. This ordinance was also referred to the license committee. The last ordinance referred to makes it punishable by a fine of not more than $10 to sell or give away any cigars, cigarettes, chewing tobacco! snuff. or any preparation of opium to children under 10 years of age. The Ciljr Clerk' Report. City Clerk S. S. McFadden submitted his annual report, and in it he attempts to explain the fact developed by the treasurer's report, that the expenditures exceeded the receipts by $6(1,508.55. Mr. McFadden says that of the amount of taxes levied last August only 4-4 per cent was paid over to the city, as against 60 per cent for the previous year.

Rosea Saccpufal. Contractor C J. Rosen was successful last night in having his bid accepted for the construction, or rather the comple tion of Sewer No. 16. He did not reduce one cent his original bid for $5,592.73, which Is $1,010 more than he offered to do the same work for six mouths ago. Mr. Rosen told the councilmen he figured on his last bid'without regard to dam ages from loss of time and material. Chairman Pattiaon of the sewer commit tee recommended the adoption of the bid. - Mr. Rosen will begin work as soon as his bond is approved and the other preliminaries are completed. . It will give employment to about twenty men. . Miscellaneous. There was considerable trouble in get ting a quorum together at the committee meeting last night. Until 8:30 there were only three members present Before the council adjourned, however, there were eight members present. Mr. Ettlinsrer and Mr. Burgess were absent. The council was in session until 10:30. 'The council adjourned to meet Mon day the 21st. It would have met next Monday but that will be circus night and the councilmen must be there. The salaries of the weighmastera were fixed at $40. a month. The petition of J. J. Harter and forty four others for an electric light at the corner of Eighth and Chestnut street was granted. S. S. Ott and George Tewksberry peti tioned to be allowed to connect a private sewer with sewer No. 14, near Fillmore and Douthitt streets. He agreed that if a new sewer district was ever formed he would pay hia portion as though the con nection had never been made. A. P. Jetmore appeared with a similar request Both requests were granted after a great deal of discussion. Christian States who built the big drain in drainage district No. 1, has not yet been paid for his work although he more than fulfilled the terms of his con tract. He has waited patiently for the bonds to be sold, and last night he sub mitted a wrtiten kick. Mr. Fellows said he thought the council owed Mr. States an apology. He is willing to take the bonds himself if he can't get the money, and it will probably be settled this way. City Physician itibben recommended a thorough investigation of the city scavenger system by a special commit tee. This was agreed to, and the mayor appointed Mr. Fellows, Mr. Holman and Mr. Bradford to do the investigating. The bond of the Topeka Oderless San itary company in the sum of $1,000, with C. O. Knowles and 1. J. Kellam as sure ties, was approved. The bond of W. A. McDowell who holds the contract to furnish baled hay to the tire department, was ap proved. H. W. Seery is the security. S. P.

The meat inspector turned $250.73 over to the city treasurer last month. Police court fines to the amount of $317.25 were paid into the city treasury in April. 133 arrests were made. Scavenger M. E. Lowe presented a bill of $48 for burving dead animals. He charges $3.50 for burying a horse. He has offered to do the work under a new contract for $2.50, but the mayor says he can't conscientiously make a new con tract with Lowe, so the city keeps on paying $3.50 a head. Mr. Griggs said: "I can't see why it should hurt your con science to make a new contract, if you can save a dollar on every horse buried by doing so." ioe expenses of the city for all pur poses including pay rolls, amounted to $12,494. The Santa Fe was ordered to put a new crossing over its tracks at Seventh street.
