The finance committee reported fa vorably on $315.35 worth of accounts nnd same were ordered paid. Alderman Gardner came In and took his seat. The mayor spoke of the electric lights the city was to get from the company, and never did get. Said the only thing that stood in the wny or a free mall delivery was tho ab sence of the lights, nnd the numbers on tho houses nnd streets. Alderman Mullen then offoreil tlm following resolution: "He It resolved by the city council of Ardmore, That the Ardmore Elec- trie Light company show cnuse bv the 19th day of May, 1902, to the street nnd nlley committee, why they have failed to enrry out their con- trnct with the city relative to lighting the streets of said city, as said con- tract nrovldes: and show cnuse bv the said date why tho contract between the city of Ardmore nnd said Electric Light company should not be cancel- ed and revoked by said city.

The following committee was appointed: J. S. .Mullen, C. L. Byrne and J. W. Golledge. The mayor stated that he had re ceived a couple of propositions to rent the city quarters for ofilces and gen eral headquarters. One was, from No ble Bros., nnd they were desirous of letting the city, have seventy-five feet of the southeast corner of their new brick, upstairs, for $33 per month nn.f C. P.

Tho ordinance to create a mayor pro tern passed to Its third rending; also the ordinance to crente a saul- tary district passed to Its third read ing. Alderman Byrne moved that the sewerage franchise ordinnnco be post poned until next meeting. Carried. Alderman Golledge asked why tho resolution paBBed at the provious meeting, requiring tho removal of all obstructions on B street between Third and Fourth avenues, by May had not been enforced. After short discussion, Mayor Dick in structed the mnrshal to havo said ob structions removed at once. t., ... menuun fiyrnv introduced an or- dtntnee declaring nil streets and al leys as public highways on and after passage and publication.

Mdermnn Gardner moved thnt En gineer Johnson be required to show cause why the cemetery mnp has not been delivered, and why the stakes wero not put up. Mr. McChnren bad n resolution that he wished passed, which, In substance, meant thnt the city would not enter tain any proposition from the rail road to stop up any of the streets. Much discussion was gone Into. Mr. Best thought we ought not to let down the bars unless we knew they were coming our way; that they had not asked us to let them close any streets yet.
