Common Council Proceedings.
Thursday, sept. 3d.
Council met at the usual time with
President Sabichi in the chair. Pres
ent: Dockweiler, Gcrkens, Huber,
Workman, Mascarel, Sabichi, Beaudry
and Chavis.
Tlie minutes of the previous meet
ing were dispensed with, as the Clerk
reported that he did not have them
written up, in consequence of a press
of business in preparing the assess
ment list.
The Zanjero reported expenditures
for cleaning and repairing zanjas,
$157 58; balance of appropriation on

The special committee to whom was
referred the matter of fixing the sal
ary of the City Assessor for the year
1874, reported that they had examined
the matter thoroughly nnd found the
total assessed valuation of property,
both personal and real,to be $4,286,621,
exclusive of mortgages assessed, which
amount to about $300,000, against an
assessment last year (1873) of $3,868,
--900. They recommended that the As
sessor be allowed the sum of $1,200 in
full for his services and that of his
assistants in making the assessment
for the year 1874. They also submit
ted a resolution providing for the
same.
Mr. Beaudry thought that the As
sessor entered upon tho duties of his
office with a full knowledge that his
compensation was fixed by ordinance
at $500, and he has no legal right to
claim any more. Besides, the assess
ment was faulty in many respects last
year, and It would be advisable to
defer extra payment this year until
the accuracy of this assessment can be
established. He moved that the sum
of $500, as provided for by ordinance,
be voted the Assessor, and that the re
mainder of his compensation be with
held for the present.
A warm debate followed, Mr. Sa
bicbi, Mr. Dockweiler and others
claiming that the compensation rec
ommended was justly earned and
should be paid at once.
The report of the Committee was
placed on file.
Tlie resoultion submitted by tho
committee was then taken up, and
passed by the following vote:
Ayes—Dockweiler, Gerkens, Huber.
Sabichi, Chaves, Mascarel and Work

tal issue'for month, $3,201 97; issued
previously this year, $19,527 39; total
issue for year, $22,789 30.
Mr. Dockweiler wanted it under
stood that these amounts are all paid
in cash, and there are no warrants
outstanding against the city. Under
stood.

The Harvest in Germany. Austria and Hun.

New York, August 31.—The Bulle
tin gives the results of the harvest in
Germany and the Austro-Hungarian
Empire, based on facts presented at
the International Grain and Seed

In the Austro-Hungarian Empire tlie
supply of wheat is over 8,000,000 bush

below. In the RhenishProvinees,wheat
is fifteen per cent, above, and rye fif
teen or twenty below the average. In
Bavaria, Franconia and Hanover,
wheat is above the average. Wur

Mecklenburg has a larger surplus of
wheat than last year. In Saxony, the
wheat and rye crops are good. In Ba
den tlie crops are light. Rye is gener
ally light, where not otherwise speci

many lias a large surplus of breadstuff's,
but the Austro-Hungarian Empire
must buy 3,500,000 bushels of oats, and
will have a few thousand bushels of
spare barley. The exportable surplus
of breadstuffs definitely reported in
canneetion with the above-named
countries includes 12,000,000 cwt. of
Hour, 5,250,000 cwt. rye, and a moder

Empire—from Bavaria, 700,000 cwt. of
rye; Wurtemburg, 1,000,000 cwt. of
wheat.
