Journeymen Agree to Terms of the Bosses
U After Ten Weeks-Will Pay $2.75 a Day
I With no Agreement Signed.
' The trouble between the boss paint
era and the Painters Union was settled
last night. The painters will return
to work tomorrow morning for $2.75
pir day and no wage oale agreement
signed. This is considered a victory
for the bosses.
At the meeting of the Building
Trades Oounoil last night a commun
ication from the Building Trades
Association was received. It was to
tiie effect that if the painters wished
to return to work they could do so at
%'iat tHe bosses ffrst offered them,
namely $2.75 per day, a day's work to
consist of 8 hours and no wage scale
agreement signed. The . Building
Trades Oounoil advised the painters
k to acoept this and end the strike at
?f once, which the painters did.
.Inst ten weeks ago this Friday the
^ painters, who were getting $2.25 per
day, demanded $2.75 and a wage scale
agreement signed. The bosses agreed
tn the amount of monev to be paid,
but would not sign the wage scale.
The painters then went out on strike.
The bosses lately have been able to
get a number of non-union men at
work. When the painters saw that
the bosses would, under no oondition
sitm the agreement, and that a num
ber of otit of town non-union men
were being put to work, they settled.
What will become of the non-union
mi li is not known at present. It is
pi )bable the Painters Union will .de
maud that they he discharged.
The Painters Union will hold a
,moetuig in their rooms in the Ade
laide Building tonight to confirm the
action taken by the Building Trades
|| Council last night in regards to the
? , ttlement of the painters troubles.
^ MR. NELSON APPOINTED.
U Made Inspector After Slight Argument
^Between the Aldermen.
Quite a controversy was stirred up
in Cooncil meeting last night when
Alderman Toft proposed Rasmus Nel
qon as inspector on the Davidson ave
nue sewer. N.o sooner was the motion
Inade than Mr. Qannon offered an
amendment to Mr. Toft's motion,
proposing the name of William T.
It was explained that there had been
an agreement whereby the members
from the ward in which the work was
being done had the choice of the in
spector. Mr. Gannon stated that be
/ had never been positively awar? of
k such an arrahgement, bat, if sach
li was the case, it would be satisfactory
1 to hitn. Alderman -at-large Eckert
" confirmed this agreement, and Rasmus
Nelson received the appointment.

The matter of paving Washington

There is some opposition to the
pavement and an opportunity will be
given for those who so desire to re
monstrate. The fi?ht i? a lively one,
and, thus far, seems very close. The
street is an important one, and mnch
traveled, but is very maddy dnring
stormy weather. It is claimed that
property along the thoroughfare will
not warrant the additional expense in
making the improvement.
Committee on Taxation so Decides
at the Board of Aldermen Meet
ing Last Night.
The Committee on Taxation at the
meeting of the Board of Aldermen
last night, reported that relative to
the communication received from the
hospital association asking an exemp
tion of assessment on New Brunswick
avenne sewer, that the records had
been examined and it was found that
the assessment was advertised accord
ing to law and confirmed by the cir
cuit court and that the conncil has no
power to set aside any assessment
after its confirmation by the court.
This means that the city hospital
will have to pay a neat sum out of its
treasury. It will doubtless be* dis
appointing to a ureat majority of the
citizens as many would favor having
the hospital exempt especially as it is
supported by public subscription.

Some Property Owners on Rec

Forty-Nine Property ?Owners A'ong the'
Thoroughfare Object to the Pavement
and New Petition May Leave Out the
Block Between Smith and Market
The movement to pave Reotor street
with the wooden paving blocks was
ended for the present at least, last
night, when a remonstrance, signed
by forty-nine persons, was read at the
meeting of the Board of Aldermen.
It is rumored that another petition
for the paving of the thoroughfare
will shortly be started, leaving oat
that section of the street between
Smith and Market streets, where
nearly every property owner signed
the remonstrance. It is claimed that
outside of the single block just men
tioned, a majority of property owners
can be secured and the street can be
paved from Marfcet to Lewis streets.
The agitation to pave Rector street
with wood paving block has been on
for some time. When the movement
was first started the objection was
made that to grade and straighten the
street would spoil the shade trees.
Others were opposed to the material
to be used.
This is the second remonstrance to
be filed. The first one was thrown
out because of a ruling by City Attor
ney Hommann to the effect that an
ordinance must first be passed before
remonstrances can be received.
Many residents on the street are
determined to have the street paved
and they say that if property owners
in one section do not want the im
provement, they will be left out and

At the council meeting last evening.
Alderman Campbell made a motion
I that the ohief of the Fire Department,
I W. Q. Comings, be requested to
appear before the board at the next
regular meeting and explain the re
fusal of Lincoln Hose Company to
attend fires without horses.
Since the first time that thing
happened, there has been widespread
discussion throughout the city as to
whether or not this company was
justified in remaining in its house
until horses were secured. Alderman
at- large Eckert said it had been re
ported that Lincoln Hose Company
had been ordered to remain in their
house unless horses could be secured.
He said it was up to the fire commit
tee to make such an order and Mr.
Campbell, the chairman, stated he
had never given such an order and he
wanted to know where it came from.
Mr. Campbell seconded his first
suggestion by saying that that was
his object in bringing the dicussion
before the board.
Alderman Runyon said, in course
of the discussion, that they should
attend every fire whether they have
horses or not as their carriage was
light and easily pulled.
Mr. Gannon urged that the chief
attend a committee meeting instead
of an open one, but no action was
taken further than the request for t^im
to attend the next regular meeting.
The Committee on Fire qgortd ^
motion to' the effect that" the city cl3L?
advertise for bid* to furnish the city
with two combination wagons to carry
the chemical apparatus, hose, and one
or two small ladders. Also one hand
hose wagon, and one truck. The bids
are to be received August 3.
