Tlio city council mot Thursday pur
suant to adjournment from tho provl

buslnoss was done, but tho mooting
proved ono of tho most exciting yet
Anolh r voto wastukenon tho prop

On tho llrst voto tho ordinance ro
colved four votes and wns opposed by

Tho Mayor used his prerogative to

on tho proposition to sustain tho
mayor lu his veto rosultod In four
votes for tlio mayor and four against,
councilman Walker ju.nplng tho fenco.
Tho ordlnanco as passed had a lot of
strings to It and Crouch mado tho
statement this morning that ho would
not havo accopted It anyway. Tho
dllllculty in tho council is simply ns
to tho wisdom of allowing tho lino to
bo built west of tho power houso, in
consideration of certain changes to
bo mado in street grades by Crouch,
or to forco him to uso tho routo cast
of tho power plant. Thoro was talk
among tho 11 vo councilmcn this morn
ing of resigning their olllces as soon
as tho tax lovy has been made, but
slnco then thero is stronger talk of
reconsidered action and tho ordlnanco
may bo changed and passed.

Tho ItixusTnt printed a special
from Humboldt Inst week tolling of
tho striking of a gas woll which is

gas on tho Watt Elliott farm in Logan
township, south-oast of Humboldt.

It. E. CulVcrtson grants a loaso on

Muyor Withdraws Ills Veto.
Aftor reconsidering tho matter May
or Campboll lias addressed a com
munication to tho city council, stating
that ho has decided to withdraw his
voto of tho ordlnanco granting n
right -of-way across tho cltv.s land
to tho streot railway.
Tho Mayor took this action aftor u
careful studying of tho situation and
a calculation of the bencllts tho cltv
may scouro by making tonus now.
Crouch can put in ills lino anyway
aim unless no gets tlio routo dcsirml
tho city will have a largo oxpenso Mil
in changing street grades. Tho con
ditions attached, giving tlio city tho
right and power to restrict tho rail
road and to cancel tho franchiso un
less ull tho terms aro lived up to,
seemed to mako a concession now tho
best way out.
This action will doubtloss enJ tho
talk among coiinctlmon of tendm-lne
tholr resignations. Tho only doubt
still oxlsting 1b us to whether Mr.
Crouch will accopt tho ordlnanco.
Tho morning aftor It was vetoed hn
declared emphatically that ho would
not havo accoptod it if passed. Tho
tanglo seems to bo nlcoly untwisting.

Another Text Hook Change
It Is but another proof that radical
changes In any public systom work
hardships for a timo oven If thoy
bring bettor results later that there Is
a pretty general objection to tho an
nounced chango in school toxt books
again this year. Tho stato has jnow
adopted an uniform text book system
for tho entlro stato, which will hold
good for llvo years. Only last year
tlio uniformity system adopted five
years ago by Allen county expired
and the county schools hud to change
to the Stato uniformity system, then
in its Inst year. Tho county had
adopted its system for llvo years in
189tJ; tho Stato a llvo years system in
1S117. This year tho old Stato system
expires and tho now llvo-voar State
system begins. Thus it happened that
tlio toxt books adopted ibut last fall
loso tholr usefulness this fall.
The now text books aro all dltTcrent
from thoso used last year, except tho
Arithmetics and Gratntnar-s. For llvo
years hence thoro will bo Jno changes
and all tht counties in Kansas will
uso tho same books. Tho old books
may bo exchanged for now ones, at
about half price, owning to tholr con
dition, it is but (natural, under these
circumstances, that peopleZshould feel
a llttlo milled under tho collar, nnrtic-
ularly people who havo to provide for
half a dozen youngsters.
