WHOLE BLOCK CALLED FOR Budget Considered in Executive Session and "Want Columns" Cut and Slashed. The Council Committee on Finance held a lengthy mooting last night? and after hearing an earnest appeal front th?; School Hoard to buy for tltt> new high school tho old Marshall home, the Jefferson Club and oilier Marshall Street property, went Into ?L long executive session to consider and paes upon the budget. Notwithstanding tho horrible weather there wns u full attendance of tho mem? bers of the committee. Major J. II. Capers nnd Mr. Charles Hutzlet-, from the School Hoar?.!, with Clerk Wiilford tuiil Superintendent Fox, appeared before the committee In tho interest of a greater high school. Major Capers and Mr. Hutzlor were the spokesmen, an?! they urged the com? mute?- tu make fltmncliil arrangements for tin- purchase at once of the Murshall Stre?'t frontage, from Eighth Street to Ninth, f?>r the new high school. The property the board wishes purchased Is the old .lohn Marshal homestead, tho Jef? ferson Club property, tir.d the four or five residences between the. JclTcrson Club and Eighth Streei. This would give the high HChOOl an entire block and ample grounds! Mr. Hutzlor expressed the opinion that the entire property can be obtained for ?cr>.00O, or perhaps a Ilttlo more. In response to n question, both Mr. Hiitzh'i- and Major Caper.? said that while the present grounds un?l the proposed new building would afford ampin accom? modations for present high school needs, they will be utterly Inadequate as soon as annexation takes place, hence the ne? cessity for action on the part of the com? mute?- and the Council liefere work Is commenced on the now high school build? ing. While the committc took no action last night, the qifcstlons asked by toe members and tin? interest they showed in the matter Indicated that they were very favorably Impressed with the proposition of t!o- board. At 3:15 o'clock the committee went into executive session to consider th?3 report of the subcommittee on the budget. Tho executive session was very secret, and so were all the members when they came out. but it was understood that ufter much wrangling and discussion a Until report to the Council was ?greed upon, and tho labors on the budROt, so far ns tho Finance Committee is concerned. were completed. It is certain that s?v? irai of th?' departments will fall far short of the amounts they named when they made known their wonts for th?: year. MINISTERS ASK IT.

"Therefore; We respectfully, but earnestly request that you enact such legislation at tills session, as will give to us in reality, what the law of two .veal;; ago purpcrted to give, but which has been evaded by the Issuing of ? hartera to 'clubs' that are scarcely more than Sunday bar-rooms, and the sale of Intoxicants under the guise of 'cider.'
