The meeting of the city council to night promises to be inter'esting fron the start to finish. All the member will probably be present, with the ex oeptiou of Clement, who is in Chicago In view of the fact that Alderninu St 'John resigned and the vacancy is to bh filled by appointment by his colleague Szituiok, there will be a new fact among the aldermen. Mr. Szitnick ha: appointed A. P. Hart as successor te Mr. St. St.ohn. he appointment will b: ratified by the colusNil, and Aldernma Hart will take a seat on the right side of the table, * * * One of the important matters to bh attended to by the council tonight it the opening of the bids for t he construe. tion of the north side sewer. If tht bids are in such shape that the council can get at each estimate, the contract will probably he awarded tonight. It is thought the system will cost somet thing like $*2,000 and will be complet ed In about three months after it is started. * * l * Alderman Beuuighoff will carry a city hall under his armn tonight. That is, it will be on a roll of paper under his arm. At the meeting two weeks ago Mr. Bennighoff stated that he would talk more on the city hall ques. tion and be prepared to show the coun oil what his idea was ill the matter. Mr. Bennighoff favors a city hall off to itself, on city property, while others are quoted as being in favor of build ing on the presenut site. The opponents of the present site say that it is not of sufficient area and would not do at all unless a three-story building was erect, ed. The object of Ita ew building is to accommodate all the city officers, be 'sides the fire department and council. T'hose favoring the present site do so because they think it is the most cen tral point in the city. If time will permit there will probably be quite a debate on the subjetct. * * * Alderman Frizelle, who broached the subject of municipal ownership of the water-works at the last meeting, says he will have something more to say to night and statistics to read, if there is any time. He has not been idle in the matter and has been talking with a number of citizens and property own ers, all of whom favor it to a unit. Alderman Frizelle thinks, as do hun. dreds of others, that the time is now ripe for the agitation of this subject, which is of so vital interest to every citizen and taxpayer. Mr. Frizelle will not have to fight this battle alone. There are at least four other members of the council who favor municipal own ership and will stand by him to the end. Besides these, the mayor also favors it, having gone on record in his inaugural address last June, This is one of the mautters which will occupy the attention of the council for some time to come, or at least until it is solved by its adoption. This complet ed, then will follow the city ownership of the present electric light system, or a new one. The petition of Austin North for a franchise for an electric street railway should be reported on tonight. Then there is the ordinance granting WV. B. George a franchise for an electric street railway, which has been drawun up, but not adopted. Mli. (;eorge does not like its wording id lil ha(s belJ taving it off.

Rey nolds. Sheriff Hubbard says that Allen died game, making no speech on the scaffold, but going to his death with a nerve that was wonderful. The execution passed oft without a hitch and was witnessed by several sheriffs from about the state. To sheriff Hub. bard will fall the solemn duty of twist. ing it knot under the ear of Murderer W. C. Brooks in about two mouths, uu* less the governor comnlmutes his sentence to imprisomnment, which is not at all likely. County Superintenrdent Burli finds himself in the midst of a busy season just now since the various district schools of the county are beginning work for the fall and winter. He visit ed the Laurel school last Wednesday, which he found in excellent condition and progressing satisfactorily under the professorship of J. E, Kurtz, who pre sidea over the Canyon Creek school last year. There are thirty pupils already enrolled and ten more expected shortly. The Park City school opened last Mon day under Professor MoCrary, who was in charge last year. Thirty-three pu pils are attendiiig aind more are to come. The trustets of the school de cided to opeti a primary department and have engaged Miss Flotence Mitch ell to conduct the same. The Allen dale school house has been moved up the railroad, about two miles from its former location, and is now situated in the center of the district. It has been plastered, painted and otherwise improved. School began in it yesterdy with Mrs. C. D, Strang as teacher and about twenty two pupils attending. The Trewin district between Park City and Laurel, began school yesterday with Miss Grace Church of Billings as teacher. She will have about ten pu pils to instruct. Miss Alice Walk is again teaching the young idea how to shoot in the Newman district, south of Billings. Her school will only be of four mouths' duration. The Roundup school' (Lstarted yesterday with Miss Kato (Gillispie of Billings in charge. The trustees of the Tilden district have not yet decided whether or not they will have school this year. Last week being fair week, a number of the schools had vacation, thus permitting teachers and scholars to visit Billings. ,tloulta i n A*,,mo'Intuint. if (',OngI'a- ti ion:.
