anil put to groat e.nono. Probably
because the Mayor and council arc aware
of lid fact nothing u done to
stop the leak; hut his honor and
the council should nut forget that other
people besides the llifi.i.irn.v company
are Incommoded by their shameful neg
liiet to do their duly. We pay taxes, ami

Here me thc'.iacts. The council In writ
ing asked us tosay how much we would
charge lor printing the orilinmees in a
book ol the same number of page , the
present hook ol ordinances, using small
pica leaded. Now wo did nut ask the
council to ask us this question, MIM did
not suggest to thai august body tliu kind
ol type it ought to u-c. Hut we
made a bid. It was so uiiioh
below the hid ol llowen ,t Co,, that the
committee concluded to not report It to
the council, uiul.iisked for new bids, again
specilying the typo small pica leaded.
Again wo made a bid, to print the ordi
nances In small plea type, '.00 pages, for
a certain sum. This, with Powell ,1 Co.'s
hid wa reported lo the council and out
bid, was accepted. When the contract
was to be made out, Mr. Iliirnelt wished
to have It say, that If Hie ,ook
made more thin 200 pages in small
plea leaded, wo should be paid so much
er page for the extra pages. His honor,
the mayor, lu the hone of keeiiltiL' the
work Irom us, refused to sign such a con
tract, and the council, alter exposing out
bid, ordered the committee toask for now
hliN. This time the type was named:
brevier solid, because the other olllce has
only brevier on hand. Well, we made au
olhcrbld and got the work njruin. This
