l'lie Caldwell'* Hun Imbroglio.
The report of the Committee on Street*
anil Alley* to Council Tuesday night in
regard to the payment of the bill incurred
for driving pile* m Caldwell'* Kun for
the proti'i'tiou of tlmt |?ortioii of Koff
Htreet abutting on said Kun elicited a
lengthy ami poinevrhut acrimonious din*
cusslon on a motion to reject the bill.
Much of the debate vu unuauallr ocr
aonal and indicative of bad temper. (>?
tensibly, the objection to the payment of
I the bill wait based ou the fact tbat the
work wn* done without an order of Council.
Thin objection would be well taken
hut for the fact, if wc are corrfctly in*
formed, that a large proportion of the
work done in the month of May was also
done without the order of Council, and
will, in all probability, be paid without
tferiou* objection, if any at all. from thone
who object to paying thin particular bill.
Council has not been careful to check the
growth of thia and other loose habits
connected with the doing of work for the
city, and it ia in the nature of an ex post
facto law to commence a reform ho auddenly
and inconsistently. We are glad,
however, that there ia a rising feeling in
favor of holding everybody, the Street
Commissioner included, to a stricter accountability,
and letting them understand
that a general reform is to take place in
the matter of the public ex|>euditures.
While therefore we admit the soundness
of the objection that has been raised
against the payment of this pile driving
bill, as a general principle, yet there are
several reasons why it is good for nothing
in hia particular case. First, because
will be pmi?l; second, because doinj,
work in thin manner has the *anc
tion of precedent. The work wan
done under the direction or by tin
permission of a Committee of Council
and according to the opinion of the Solic
itorany Executive officer has the right
and it w bin duty, to protect the property
interests of the city, either with or with
out an order of Council, in the judg
mentof the Committee on Streets, Alley*
Hud Grades, and also of the City Surveyor
and Street Commissioner, the work
wa< necessary to protect the Koffntreei
embankment, and tho water and gas pipe*
cpanning the run. The work also, it appears,
was well donoand at a rcasonabh
price. We do not see, therefore, how iU
payment can, in honor or law, be avoid
oil. For this reason we judge that the
objection made to tho bill is not the real
but only the ostensible objection.
It is well known that certain parties
arc moving heaven and earth in the at
tempt to commit tho present Council t<
the adoption of a scheme for Mraightenin]
Caldwell'* Run, a project that in notui
tially to coat Home fifteen or twenty thou
nand dollars, hut which in far more likely
to cost fifty or nixty thousand before thi
job in finished, and atill leave an oper
IUt of incidentals liable to cost a* rauct
more,and the end not even then be reached
The large majority of the First Branch o
of Council, with a few members of tin
Second, h wo persistently opposed tht
entertainment of this scheme, for the aim
pie reason that it is nonsense for the citj
to engage in any auch enterprise at th?
present time, and therefore thero id ni
reason in attempting to bind the nciion
of a future Council.
We may Hay here tlut so far an we ar?
informed tho present action of the oppo
sition to the scheme is entirely based up
on the ground of inexpediency, which in
expediency arises from the fact that th
[city has no means with wliich to accom
tdish the work, even admitting that i
I could bo accomplished for the compara
lively inexpensive trifle claimed as sufli
cient. Tlie city hart reached her cooati
tutional limit in tho way of iucurrinj
bonded indebtedness. The legislation c
lau winter compels her to appropriati
money for specific purposes, and forbid
her to exceed those appropriations ex
cept by the action of three-fourth* of tb
members, a vote which it will be Impot
nlble to obtnin unless uuder stress of es
Inordinary emergency. These aro fact
which are patent to every member (
Council and which should bo understooi
by the people.
To understand the animus of the o|i
position to the payment of this pile dru
ing bill, it is only necessary to detail i
few facts connected with this Caldwel
Run business. For several yearn it lis
been urged by certain parties that the it
teresl* and convenience of the people i
tho lower wards of the city have suflere
f.?r the want of nronor faeilitiiw for trai
11. It baa been claimed tlut one indi
fercnt bridge forms the connecting liul
and that over it nil foot, wagon and car
tr.wi'l ha< been compelled to pai
riiere vrm during the la*t Council a pet
fectcU:uor for the repair and enlarge
inent of the present btidge ou Chaplim
treet, and for the oonntruction of a oei
on Koff street. There were thereto
"urreys made and plans and specification
submitted by the Engineer (or bridges
over the present site of the Run, and over
the proposed site on 29th street. There
were reconnolsancea by Council commit*
tees, standing and apecial. and, if we
mistake not, by Council as a bod/, and
after thorough investigation, in
view of the growing debt of the city
and the inevitable cost of straightening
the Bun and providing against contingenciea
incident;thereto, it waa finally determined
to build two stone arch bridges
over the present location of the Kuq.
Bids were accordingly advertised for, re- ,
ceived and accepted, and a contract actu* I
ally made. The members from the lower
Wards were aatisGed, and their constitu- ;
ents were happy. Owing, however, to <
the lateness of tho season, and perhaps j
some informality in the contract, the mat- j
ter was abandoned for the time. In the ,
meantime a new Couucil came iuto being
and, presto cbango! the Btraigbtening ol
Caldwell's Ilun loomed up in proportions
larger than ever, notwithstanding the
impoverished condition of the city finance*,
and the Inw that forbids any expend- 1
iturea except by direct appropriation.
Now there in a portion of the Council determined
to carry the straightening of the
Hun at any hazard, even to the abandon*
rnent of the bridging of the Kan anywhere,
or even the repairing of the present j
bridge at Chapline street.
This movement throws Home Ijght, as i
we think, on the animus of the opposition 1
to the payment of the bill for the pile
driving in Caldwell's Hun at Kofl' street. |
Ostensibly, as we Have said, it is because
its work wan done without an order of 1
Council, but the progress of discussion
over the matter has developed that the
upporters of the straightening scheme .
have discovered something not thought
of by the Committee on Streets and Alleys,
the City Surveyor or the Street Com- I
missioner, and which they deem fatal to
their attempt to bulldoze the Council i
into an endorsement of their proposed .
1 aclicme. What id it? They have dis- i
covered that the work of piling has been i
so well done, and at a coat ho reasonable,
that for an additional hundred, or
hundred und fifty dollar* at moat,
' an excellent wooden bridge, sufficient
(with the present Chapline street bridge,
' when repaired,) to accommodate all
travel and trade between the two sections
of the city for years to come, can be built.
They have seen this, we say, and have believed
that the bottom was knocked out
of their scheme of straightening the Hun,
At leant this is the way it looks from our
standpoint. Their allegation now is that
the very possibility which they them*
selves discovered before any oue else, the
very idea which they themselves developed,?was
the foundation,?the cor:
ner stone?of the action of the committee
> in having the work done.
Now let usexamine tho opposition to
i the payment of this pile bill in a tacti,
crl point of view, and Hee how llimsy it
; is. Tho advocates of the straightening
project allege that they do not want the
i work of Heightening or bridging the
} linn undertaken this year, or next, or the
, year after for thai matter, unless the city
linn the means at hand to do it. They
, are willing to wait, perhaps like Jacob
' of old, for neven years, upon the strength"
- of a promise that at tome future day the
wurk will be put through. The propoi
ailion presume* a verdancy on the part of
the aenior members of Council that in not
complimentary to their long municipal
I experience, if it is suppoied they are to
? be caught with any auch chaff. The prop
onition does not contemplate wailing any
5 longer thin the preaent aeaaon before
i taking ateps to initiate Ihe work,
. so thai by the expiration of
1 the preacut Council it may havo prof
red Jfil an fur lliftt tlin na-r I Pniinnil *!ll
be either compelled to continue the work
i or uKuuie the onus of abandoning it at a
sacrifice to the city. Now for the proof
j that we are correct in thin assumption.
; No body knows better than those who
- advocate tho committing of the present
Council to this'schcme that another suer
ceeding Council, if it sees proper, can ro>
scind the action of this Council, and they
i well know such action has occurred bei
fore, and, further, aa a matter of law, that
. all work ordered by Council, but not
f cither contracted .for or actually begun,
s dies with the Council in which it origi
i naies.
Ono more point complete what wo
r have to say at this time. If the advo5
eaten of thin project mean that they are
) willing to wait for this improvement until
the city is in a financial condition to
undertake it, and if they have discovered
i that a good wooden bridge, ample for the
present wants of the people, can be placed
- on the piles at the Eoff street croaaing of
- tho Run, at a very small coat, why were
e they not prompt to secure the advantages
anil claim the rights of discovery and
t entrench themselves in the hearts of their
constituency by applying promptly the
remedy for all the grievances on account
of which tho previous Council was ao
S often bitterly assailed?
if Inadvertently, perhaps, the foundation
a of a good bridge has been laid, one that
8 can be built at a trifling cost, and we call
upon the City Council in the intereat, not
e of the people of any ono section of the
> city, but of all the business of the city,
: to avail themaelveaof this advantage.

If ho apprehends conviction ho will, uni
questionably tight. Higbee Haight and
Stewart can only be taken by superior
force of United States troop*. Under the
present jury system it is impossible to
convict any of the other assassins in Utah.
Ia'c was convicted only because District
Attorney Howard succeeded in
making Brigham Young believe that
bv tho conviction of Lee, Utah would bo
admitted into the Union aa a State, whereupon
Young ordered his conviction for
the cood of the church. Dintrw*; A Hnr.
ney "Howard, ho ?ays, in honest and efficient
in every respect. The stories about
his keeping back a portion of Lee's confession
are false, except some jjoints left
out to further the ends of justice by an
agreement between Bishop and Howard.

every particular, gotten up in the interest
of the church.
