AFFAIRSIN THE COUNCIL TheOierdrift and P^us for Providing^(or It MANY MATTERS DISCUSSED APoll Tax of Three Dollars and a^Road Tax of Two Mills Levied^Upon tho City^A Lengthy^Seoolon. Aspecial meeting of the city council^was held at tbe Standard hall last even^^ing. It had been called for tho purpose^of receiving reports from the judiciary,^finance and street aud alley committee*^and levy the road, ad valorem and poll^tax. The first thing on the programme^was the presentation of a report from tbe^fluatico committee by Alderman King.^The committee had ^xamiued the appro^^priations aud expenditures, with this re^^sult: Amropr atii ns,raid Out.

Tills lll-^di liveliness was mcuir it previous to last^year, and the Inst council was not rc-^spotisitde fur it. The only way Aldi rmaii^King could see out ol ihe d fllcully was to^curtail Ihe running exrenses of the city^government ilui ing the present year und^draw up an ordinance io si cure Hie city^treasurer for the summit paid out by li.m^in excess of the appropriations made last^year. All ^ riuan Shovun said that the^cny council Had ueen in debt the sum of^f!KX) since the first term of set vice of a^city council in this city. The question^then came up as lo wht liter the lueseiit^council could make appropriations tor^the old council. City Attorney Engiish^said that this could be done by a two-^thirds' vote of the entire council. Inregard to water Aldeim in King said^that heretofore the appropriations made^for that article had been loo small. Al^^derman Walkup iu speaking of special^police, said that no provision had ever^been made 111 regard to these olllciuls.^This l.rought Aldermen Shovliu to the^flour. Ho said that under the existing de^^pression in business circles ho thought it^womd bo a good idea to cut down the reg^^ular police foice. He Old not think it^necessary al ihe |iestnt time to have^such an i xlcusive complement of ofllcers^on duty. WhileAlderman Martin approved of^the necessity of curtailing the running^expenses of Hie city as the revenue ha.i^iulleu olf al least one-half, he did not be^^lieve in culling down llio ponce lorce. He^thought their services were ropiued al^the present um^ more than any oilier. MayorH^ uiond thought that the water^nud clconc nglit companies should, un^^der the ex.sting circumstances, reduce^their rate, and mis would in a in asure^relieve the cuy from its heavy exi^cnse. An inum was made by Alderman Mar^^tin instructing ihe city attorney to draw^up an oidinanee covering the oveidralls^on ihe treasury last year. This was sec^^onded by Aii.erman W alkup. Alderman^Me vim ol jieie.i lo this, however. He^said that to do this it woul I be necessary^to cut down the police force und ill other^ways 1 iwer the current expenses of the^city. He did not think it would look well^in the i^ypsof the people to lax t lem any^more than tlicyw.ro al present taxed.^He thought the belter way to do wotiul lie^toculdowu (Xpetis.s iroiu tins year'*^appropriations. The first thing to do^would be lo lessen the pol.ee force, and^win n i veryihiug had taken a change for^tht* better and business resumed Us sway^then it Would be well to piaeo tho men^who hud been laid oil back in their posi^^tions. AldeiniinMartin remarked that the^mov. in -lit was made simply to protect^the coy treasurer. Alderman Walkup^Saul he understood that the overdrall^spoken of was s.mply to be chargcil up to^tins year's appropriations, and that it^would certainly deplete the appmpriu-^tions made lor ihe current year. In Ihat^case it woul 1 lie necessary to cut down^running ^x|ictises in some manner. He^wauled to know if a two-thirds vote of the^council would not bold as well as a regu^^larly drawn up ordinance iu regard to^this mstter. AldermanKing asked for information^on the question as to whether it would i e^necessary lo place the sum of MoT.7*^shortage in water bill upon last year's nim^^propriations, and was answer, d iu llio^aflliinalivc. After further argument a^mot on was made and carried instruct^^ing the city attorney to draw up an ordi^^nance to settle last year's indebtedness,^and to present tbe onliuunce at the reg^^ular meeting to be held oil next Monday^evening. AldermanWalkup offered a report for^the judiciary committee, of which he is^chaii man. J lie city Ireasuer had Icon in^doubt as lo whethi r it was his duty to^register all warrants presented by^thu parties for whom they had lieen^diiiwn. Alderman Walkup ssid he had^examined the matter and hud dlscoved^that the ominance read very plainly on^this subj^ ci prescribing ibis among the^dutu s olihe treasurer at ull turns and^under all ciicumstunccs. An. ther mat^^ter was also brought up in regaid to the^keei ing ol copies of the newspapers con^^taining the ordinances. Alderman Walk-^up had seen Judge Winston who Stilled^ih.it on the expiration of I i- term of . III^.-^he had transferred all of tbe city's ell eels^including i-i.i h newspaper* to hi. suc^^cessor Mr. Unarm hi, who sent for them^by a druymaii. Mr. boariuan was seen^and staled lluit if tbe c ^pa s had MOM^transferred as stand by Mr. Winston^they had not to Ins knowledge reached^his ollice. He thought the- flics had been^overlooked as a worthless package and^either carelessly ihrown to own side or^o h. rwise lost on the way. Mr. Hoannaii^had said that ns be did not have^the llrst part of these flle^ ho had^rousiiiercd Ihem of little or no value und^consequently had k- pt none niinsel'. Al^^derman Kingasked ihe city attorney if he^thought a hie should la- preserved, and^ihat gentleman thought the ordinances^should In- kept in Is* k form for ihe he-tic-^llt of cit.sens uml sh^ ul l be the property^of the cuy. In answer to Atdeiman Fni-^I'.itnck's question as to whether it was^customary wnh new-papers to furnish a^copy ol the paper winch contained a paid^ordinance. Alderman Walkup said that^such ^a* u.u.illy ihe case, in order 04000^thoroughly to uiiderstsu l tie facts in the^case the mayor sur/gesi. d that the . ouned^should ollie.ully polity Mr. Unarman to^tie present at ihe next r. gnl ir meeting^ami explain matters in a satislacl.iry^maimer. The oily attorney r. ad ordi^^nance It.', section 3, which stated that a^ci pv of each p.,, i r in which an ordinance^had S| p:-ared should be |^r. sorted. Ontne subject of streets and alleys,^aJtli rmao Martin said that he heel no^regular n i ^it to make. An cxauiina- sionhad proved that tbe streets^and oll.ys about tbe city were^being rapidly cleaned under tbe super^^vision of Chief of Police Pickel. Tunc^men were at present engaged lo tbe work^and tbey should be forced to earn every^dollar ib y receive. It was not^considered advisable to enlarge the work^^ing force at present owing lo tbe depleted^condition of tbe treasury. AldermanSln vlin asked who had^charge of the men at work mod was^answered to tbe effect that Mr. Leaven-^good waa tbe man. Alderman bbovlin^said be did not believe It waa the duty of^tbe city to All he numerous wells situ^^ated on tbe streets, as he un^^derstood bsd been done on nu^^merous instances. While he admitted they^were a nuisance be thought it waa the^duty of the property owners to do in *^work. Alderman Walkup said bo had^seen several instances where cobble^stones bad been taken from tbe middle^of the road and placed iu holes and wells^near by, thus saving tho necessary ex^^pense of hauling ihem to ihe dumping^grounds. This, be thought, was a re^^markable p.cce of judgment on the part^of the street aud alley committee. Alder^^man Shovliu said he had not noticed this^point, which was certainly a goo.I one. AldermanWalkup offered a report for^the fire committee which showed that^there had 00001 bnt tour fires and no^false .alarms during the past year. Tli-^he considered a remarki.hie record. H.^had not iced that the RrOOBOst bad no ac^^commodations for holding meetiugSt anil^he thought the council could afford to^purchase a talde and a lea- chairs lor their^lM'tiflit. After s^ me argument on tin-^subject a mo'.iou was made by^Alderman King author.z ng Alder^^man Walkup as cha.rman of the^lire commuter- to purchase a table and^amc-ssary number of chairs for the de^^partment. The BSOtftoSI was unanimously^carried. AldermanMartin mid that about lt-^feet of the fence at tbe dumping ground^had Inch burned down at.d men had been^sent lo repair it. Alderman Mioviui made^a motion that no person be allowed to^burn garb, n ^ at the city diimpini:^grounds unless autlu r z d by tbe cm^council, null an or.nuance was drawn up^to that. fleet. AldermanMartin moved that a special^lax of two nulls be levied 111 connection^with tho poll tax of $;i.lu. Aldeunan^Walkup oliji clcd and BOOtlS an amend^^ment that a *p^ cial assessment be made^ol fa.OP, omitting the two null ml, * n^the ground tliat be believed it to be ill*-^gal. The city attorney held that it wi u.il^In- legal. A vote was then taken on ihe^amendment with the result: that Walkup^und Shoolin voted in ihe affirmative and^M^seis. Fitxl'atr.ck, liarkovicli, Martin^and King in the negative. As the amend^^ment was lost Aldeiiuun W ulkup wanted^lo know it it would be proper to divide^the motion as it embodied two distinct^qui shops, and after a great deal of argu^^ment, iu winch the chair was ai a loss^how to rule, the qui slain raisi d was de^^cided iu the i.illiillative.
