Mr. I'termehle called up the special order?
the bill to cause the carriageway on 6th street
west, from Pennsylvania to New York avenue,
to be paved.
Mr. (Jan held asked if a petitiou accompanied
Mr. Uthermeale said bo petition was re
Mr. L'termehle proceeded to argue in favor
of the bill, and that the act of May G, IBM,
clearly empowered the City Council* to grado
and pave streets, and to pay for it out of the
ward funds, and that the law was passed at
tbe request of the Mayor and others, as ordi
nances of tbe city heretofore pasted to pave had
proven mere nullities. The question is what
will tbe Board do with that street. It Is a
question to be pondered well, whether it sh ill
he left in tbe condition it now is, or give tbe
Fourth "Ward its due and the benefit of its
finances. Mr. Utermehle then read the opini ?
of the Corporation Attorney bearing upon this
subject. [The opinion was published in the
Mr. Lloyd called Mr. Turton to the chair and
said that his own idea was to save the Copora
ticn a large amount of money and prevent an
invidious dietinction from being mide. The
Mayor had the law of May, 186*1, passed wi h
the understanding and belief, that its intention
was to have the people living along the line of
a stTeet to be paved, to pay for euch paving.
No one heretofore supposed that we had au
thority to pave the streets and pay the expense
out of the ward funds, theretore all interested
in the welfare of the city have been endeavor
ing to get tbe authority to pave, and change the
system of grading, it was illegal to pass an
ordinance to pave and have it executed if the
ward lunds were to be expended for the im
provement, hence permission was granted to
pave if the people were taxed for the improve
ment, and the only way to carry out the act of
1SG4, Mr. Lloyd believed, would be to get the
application of owners of property, assess the
cost npon tbe owners living along the line ot
the street, put it m the ward fond and draw it
out again, and by this means we could get rid
of the difficulty that the verbiage of the act of
Congress baa got ns into.
But at this time the speaker dia uot believe
that members would undertake a biU of such
magnitude, it has been decided time and
again that Warae could not be made to pay
lor the paving of the streets. We have tne
same law now we have always had, and con
sequently there waa nothing giving the Mayor
power to pay for paying out of the Ward
fnnds. Assuming, however, that the opinion
of the Corporation Attorney was correct, the
Board should not make invidious distinction
of taking from the Ward fnnds to pay for one
street while other etreets had been paved by
taxation npon owners living along their lines
Be concluded that the members of the Board
would not pass the bill, as the current ex
pense? of tbe Board for the fiscal year would
consume all the proceeds of the taxable prop
Mr. l'termehle, In return, argued that the
question of the legality of the act bad been dis?
posed of, and he (Mr. TJ.) believed that th*
Corporation Attorney had disposed of tbe
question as to a petition being required. Mr.
fjtermoble further argued that this question
involved another, whether the passage ot the
bill would be for tbe general good. He con
tended that it would be, and that the etreet
must be improved, and put it to gentlemen
whet h r they would grant them S 10,000 to grade
and gravel the street.
Mr. Canrleld said he tor one would
Mr. TJtermeble lurthersaid that to show that
he had no special interest specially to have
6th street paved, if gentlemen desired it he
would include 5th and 4jf streets in the bill.
Mr. Lloyd, in reply, contended that the
paving of this street was not for the general
good, as there were many etreets more
travelled than it wa?, and there were
dozens of ways whereby Pennsylvania
avenue could be reached from New York
avenue. Now, if it was proposed to pave 7th
etreet from Maryland avenue to the Potomac
river, it would be for the general good, tor
that street bad to be travelled to reach the
A number of amendments were offered, and
the bill finally passed with an amendment that
the improvement should be made at such times
as the Mayor chose, by the following vote :

Mr. Lloyd, from committee on finance, re
ported adversely upon the bill increasing the
compensation of members of the Boarde of Al

discharged from its further consideration.
The board refused to discharge the commit

to make the bill take effect in 1^66, in 1?G3; to
strike out all pay and make the services gra
tuitous-, to impose a fine of 85 for each absence
without cause, <*cc , all of which motions failed

Mr McCathran introduced a bill to construct
a gravel footwalk on 9th street east, between ?
aad D streets south, and appropriate? 9100
therefor. ' ?
Mr Lewis moved to amend, ?'Provided there
are any funda to the credit ot the ward."
Mr. McCathran said he thanked the gentle
man for his liberality; but if gentlemen from
the central ward? who were large property,
owners in the Sixth Ward would but pay for
improvements in front of their lota, the ward
would not be obliged to come begging^ Mr.
McCathran then proceeded to argue that th?
interior wards bad imposed npon the suburban
wards, and that the Sixth, whenever it wanted
anything, had to come begging like Lazarus;
even when they wanted an appropriation to
keep their heads above the mod and water, for
