The protest vran ordered placed on the

d jo umed.
Hiii Jlonor the Mayor presided. On
ailing the roll there were present Messrs.
Jaird, Boring, Briee, Carnahan, Egerter,
lasting*, McAdams, Reister and Woodyard.
The minutes of the last meeting were
ead, and being approved were signed by
he Cleric.
The Mayor Htated that the session had
ecu called for the purpose of completing
lie consideration of the estimates of the
landing committees for expenditures in
heir different departments and appropritions
for the name.
A message from the Second Branch
nnounced that it had potted an ordi*
ance against the obstruction of Market
treetfrom 12th street to the creek, and
Iain street between 9th and 12th streets.
A petition was read from the La Belle
ron Works, asking permission to lay a
ram road from their xuill down 31st
treet to the river.
Mr. Blair moved to refer it to the
Joinmittee on Streets and Alleys for reeport.
Mr. Reister amended by moving that
lie Committee have power to act, which,
Don a call of tho ayes and nays, was
ffi . r ?t_ n - r.. T,.
zuo ivyori 01,1110 *jommuieo on i1!*
ancea upon the revenues of the city for
S77-8wa? read, being a total of $100,050,
rith liabilities aggregating $123 878,
saving a balance of?12.172 to be dividJ
among the four principal department#
h follows: Lights, $9,000; Water Works,
14,500; Streets, Alleys ami Grades, $10,
72: Fire Department, $9,000.
The Mayor then read the act of tho
legislature providing that tho estimate*
.'or the expenses of Mid departments and
that the awounta apportioned therefor t
shall not be exceeded except by aconcur- n
rence of four-fifths of the members of the
Council. a
An ordinance complying with the terms r
df the aforesaid law and Hinting that the t>
everal amount* attached to tho depart- j
tnents of Lights, Water Works, Fire De- o
partment, and Streets, Alleys ur.d Circles c
are Beceeiary to meet the expenses of the t*
said departments for the year cominenc- a
tag on the 1st Tuesday of Mny, 1877. t
Mr. Egerter asked for the reading of
the items from the report* of the differ- I
ent committees upon which tho apitor- \
tionmenls were'.made by the Finance Com- t
mittee. ' s
Mr. Blair wanted to know why it waa i
necessary 'to make an appropriation of m
nine thousand dollars for the Committee
on uguiii, mo uaa Horns Dciougiiig iu \
the city and being felf-sustainlng and t
therefore able to do without the appropriation
of $9,000, net anide by the Fi- i
nance Committee. Mr. Hall maintained
that to take thin ?9,000 oft" the revenue*
of the Committee on Light* was an injuntice
to the 1,400 ga? conimuer* of the (|
citv, who have paid for the CJan Works so <\
far as they have been paid for. To take ,
thin revenue in to increa.se the price of (
gtu on the 1,'100 consumers and to appro- |
priate it to other purpoieajin warda which ;
make no use of the gas except for the \
lighting of the streets and do not seem t
to want it for any other purpose wan illegal
ns well as unjust.
Dr. liaird moved to amend the report
of tito Committee on Finance by rai.tJng
the appropriation for streets and alleys
to $lt>,000, which amendment wax adopted.
Mr. Blair moved to increase the appropriation
of the Finance Committee for '
the Fire Department to $13,000, and on
a call of the ayes and noes the amendment
was lost.
Mr. IJoring moved that the Hum be increased
to $11,000. Mr. Hall remarked <
that ho was opposed to thin increased ?|>- i
propriation, because he believed, and it c
was the opinion of legal gentlemen that <
the members of Council by exceeding the <
known revenues were rendered liable to I
uiake up thedetlciency. Tho amoudment J
was adopted.
On motion of I)r. Baird the appor- <
tionment of tho Finance Committeo was I
reduced to three thousand dollars for the
Committee on Lights, which was adopted. <
The ordinancu wax then read a third time I
and adopted as amended.
Mr. Woodward moved that tho ex- '
penditures of the Street Commissioner he <
limited to $000 per month. Dr. Baird
statedthat tinier Home limitation be plac- <
edon the StreetCommissioners power to i
expend money he cannot be controlled.
He further stated as Chairman of the 1
Committee on Streets and Alleys, that
the committee cannot controll James U.
Whyte, the present Street Commissioner,
he has utterly failed to obey theinstruc- lions
uf C'ouucil nnd laughs iu the face of
tho committee. i
Mr. Hoflman was in favor of tlife reso- <
lution. The Street Commissioner has in
his am ploy men who are not worth 50 <
cents per day, and his whole nianngeaient <
is such as to bankrupt the treasury of the
city. i
Mr. Kgerter was clearly of the opinion
that the present Street Commissioner <
is an inefficient officer. <
Mr. Hall would vote for the resolution.
The sooner the .Council put its '
foot down on the extravagant and useless <
waste of money the better. He would
offer an amendment reducing the sum to i
$100. 1
The amendment was accepted and the
resolution adopted.
A petition of citizens was received i
from the Second branch asking the
straightening of Caldwell's Run, and the i
action of the Second Branch beiug merely i
to refer to the First Branch, it was laid
on the table. <
A resolution from the Second Branch <
ordering the discontinuance of the illu- <
mination of the town clock was read and
referred to the Committee on Lights. ,
A resolution udoptcd iu the Second i
Branch to inquire by what authority the
work ou the bridge over Caldwell's run at 1
EofFstreet is being done, was received. i
The Mayor being unable to convey tho i
information Dr. Baird stated that the
City Solicitor informed the Street Com- <
missioner that he had the power and it I
was his duty to protoct tho city's interest
and on the strength of this statement the !
committee oonpented that the work might :
be done.
