footway on the north side of E street sot th,
from 4 th to 6th streets east; to lay a flag foot
way across I street north, on the west side of
3d street west.
The Mayor retorned to the board, without his
approval, an act to increase the pay of the gar
has* collectors employed by the Corpora-ion
1st Because be was not aware that the pay ot
this cliff of Corporation employees is not now
eqoal to those this bill would assimilate to
them; 3d. because if proper tc increase their
compensation, the Mayor is already author
ized to do so by the act approved August 16
l*tt, entitled l,Aa act for the removal of ottai
slops, Ac."
The question being pat, ??shall this bill pass
notwithstanding the veto of tne Mayor," was
lost.
The Board received the following nomina
tions troin the Mayor:
For Trustees of "Pi.blic Schools: 1st District,
James O Wilson. James P. Tustin and J. S
Brown; 2d District. M H. Miller, Win I
Knees and O. C Wight; 3d, F. S. Walsh. Rob't

Treasurer ot the Board, John Sessrord; Secre
tary. R. T. Morsell; referred to commute-* on
Public Schools.
Also, nominated, George Noyes for tele
graphic operator ot the Fire Alarm Telegraph
in the place of Thos. Morrison, declined; re
lerred to committee on Fire Department.
Also, transmitted a memorial from A. R.
Sparks A Co., Druggists, requesting the privi
lege of erecting an ornamental lamp post and
lamp in front of their store, on Louisiana
avenue. referred tocommittee on police.
Mr (lulick piesested a bill asking a defi
ciency to grade and gravel K streetaouth, from
4th street east to the canal; passed.
Mr. (.'antie)d submitted a resolution request
ing the Surveyor to inform the Biard the
probable cost to arch over so much of Tiber
Creek, between Pennsylvania avenue and B
street north, as to allow 2d street west to be
graded to Pennsjivama avenue. Adopted.
Mr. Pepper, lrom the commute? on improve
ments, to whom was referred a bill to grade
F street north, reported it back with the desire
that it be retened to the Second Ward delega
tion; and it was so ordered.
Mr. L'termeble, from the committee on police,
reported back the bill nominating Edward L.
Dawson as a policeman of the Third Ward
the nomination was confirmed.
Also, reported back the bill to prohibit the
violations of the Sabbath, and recommended
its passage. The bill is as follows
Be it enacted, dc., That from and after the
passage cl this act it shall not be lawful for
any person in this city to cry aloud any news
paper, periodical or other printed matter for
sale on the Sabbath day and for each and
every violation of the act the person so otTend
ing shall be liable to a fine of not less than one
nor more than five dollars.
?V?c. 2d. That it ehall not be lawful for any
person to keep open any barber shop or any
place of business for the sale of any article or
articles of profit dnring the Sabbath day, ex
cepting apothecaries, for the dispensing of
medicine and all other matters of charity and
necessity, and 'hat for any violation of this
act the person so offending shall*, for each and
every oflenBe, te liable to a flneot not less than
twenty nor more than forty dollars, and that
the fines and penalties under this ac* shall be
collected as flnts usually are, and one-half of
each and every fine shall tw paid to the iu
former.
Mr. Lloyd was opposed to the bill, because
he could see no annoyance to which the public
were subjected by the boys in crying aloud the
news: he thought that if a reform was aimed at
regarding the Sabbath, it should commence
with affairs ef greater magnitude. The street
cars, backs, Ac., were, in his opinion, mnch
greater annoyan. es that these little newsboys
Jrolks held that the boys interrupted divine
service; but he thought none were annoyed
but those who attended church so rarely that
their consciences smote them when they did
go, and the newsboys had to bear the blame of
it And concerning shaving, he thought it was
the duty ef every man to put himself in order
before he attended church, for two reasons
first, because his wile would not go to church
with him uuless he was shaved, and second
because he should not go to church without
first having his beard shaved. Folks might
just as well pass a law prohibiting private
iamilies from having boiled dinners on the
Sabbath.
Mr. Utermehle remarked that, as far as it re
garded the runnlngof cars, hacks, Ac.,on Sun
day, there was no need of legislation, as the
Corporation laws now prohibited it, and that
that power was sufficient to stop it at any
time; and as to keeping open barber-shops on
the babbath, he was opposed to it, as only
those who had plenty of time to get shaved
during the week were found there on Sunday
morning, lie shaved himself, and did not go
to a barber-shop at all.
Mr. Pepper approved the viewsof Mr. Lloyd,
and would not be surprised to see some of these
little newsboys and boot-blacks at some future
day occupy the Presidential chair or seats in
their board, and referred to a former President,
Millard Fillmore, who once was a runner in a
factory, and allnded to several other examples
ot a like nature. As to keeping open shop?, he
thonght that those who were steadily confined
to their duties through the week should have
the privilege of procuring for their little ones
a few candles, Ice-cream, Ac., on the Sabbath,
as that was the only time they could find time
to go with them.
Mr. Pepper moved to insert in first section
the woro8 " after K o'clock a. m "
Mr. Noyes moved to make it 11 o'clock in
order to accommodate church-goers who
wished to get the news np to the last minute;
otherwise they might be harrassed in mind du
ring service by the deprivation.
The amendment extending the hour to 11
o'clock was adopted.
Mr. Noyes moved to insert in section 2, after
the words "excepting apothecaries for dis
pensing medicines," the words ><and under
takers providing for the burial of the dead."
Adopted.
Mr. Lloyd moved to lay the whole subject
on the table. Lost.
Mr. Lloyd moved to strike out the whole of
section 2, which motion was decided by yeas
and nays. Yeas 5, nays 8; so the motion to
strike out was lost.
Also, moved to insert the words, "barber
shops shall be allowed to remain open until
11 a. m. on Sabbath mornings." Rejected.
He then moved to insert the words ?10 a.
m.," in lien of the words ?y a. m," Rejected.
Mr. Uterinehle moved to insert the words
??for shaving and hair-cutting." Adopted.
The bill being put upon its final passage,
was passed as amended.
Mr. Lloyd then moved to change the title of
the bill just passed, so as to read: "A bill to
prevent violations of a portion of the Sabbath
day." Rejected.
Mr. Noyes, from the committee on drainage,
Ac., reported back Common Council bill, ask
ing the Mayor to permit Messrs. Clark A Mor
rison to bnild a sewer, with an amendment
providing that it be turned over to the Corpcr
ation without cost; and with an additional sec.
tion providing for the manner in which the
sewer shall be constructed and laid. Passed.
Mr. Kapley asked leave to take up a bill to
gravel a lootwalk in the 1st Ward. Passed.
Mr. Qulick, from the committee on claims,

Towles, and asked that the committee be dis
charged from its further consideration; and it

wharves.
The message of the Mayor, retailing the act
esrmpUcR certain church property from taxa
tan, with his reasona lor aot approving the
tame, was read by the President. The hill
proposed to exempt the property of the new
Foundry M. E Church. The Mayor's reason
is, that if the property proposed to be exempted
is the property ot tue church for public wor
ship, there is a law in existence which exempts
all auch property, and special legislation Is
tin necessary. If it proposes the exemption of
other property of the church not exempted by
that law, he would object to making invidious
distinctions by favoring one olass or denomi
nation of Christians more iM? another. The
Mi?yor says : "Should the Council think proper
to make a general law, giving to all denomina
tions alike the advantages likely to accrae to
the Foundry M. E. Churen from the bill 1
return without my approval, it would meet my
hearty approbation.
