Proceedings Yesterday of tbe Olty l,»j

not acted Upon—Petition*
and Protests.
Considerable Important business was
transacted at the meeting of the council
Nothing was done with tbe bicycle
ordinance, hence the wheelmen will not
be compelled to bny lamps nor keep off
the sidewalks.
An almost insulting letter was sent to
tbe council regarding the fences around
tbe Bradbury block, and it created con
siderable talk.
A Orescent avenue property owner
registered a kick against the heavy ex
penses of the superintendent of sewer
work on that street. He characterized
it as an outrage.
All inemberß were present .except
President Teed.. Mr. Nickell occupied
the chair.
After tbe reading and approval of the
minutes of the preceding meeting, tbe
council got down to business, with the
following result:
The report of the city clerk was read
showing tbat it was in order to pasa the
final ordinance for the work ot improv
ing Burlington avenue from First to
Temple street, and such an ordinance
was adopted.
An ordinance ordering the work of
paving Alameda Btreet, from Commer

1894, which had been turned into tbe
The clerk also recommended that cer
tain tax sales be cancelled.
In the afternoon the clerk presented
the following report:
The notices which have been stamped
upon the tax receipts for the present
fitcal year, are bringing to tbe attention
of our office a considerable number of
tax deeds which havo been issued by
the city to different tcx purchasers on
account of double assessments. These
deeds are liable to cauee considerable
annoyance aud trouble to property own
ers at a time when they least desire it,
and it seems but fair that the city
should make some provision for clearing
these matters for tbe property owners.
In tbe past it has been tbe custom of
the council to refuse to return any
money on account oi tax deeds, but it
would appear to mo that where the tax
deed baa been issued upon a double
assessment and the city bas received its
money twice, that it would be but
justice to the property owner and fair
ness to the tax purchaser if the city
would make a rule, tbat where such a
deed has been issued, that upon the
tiling with tiie council of a proper quit
claim deed to the actual owner ot the
property, that tbe city would refund to
tbe purchaser the actual amount of
money which they have received on ac
count of such sale.
I have conversed with a number of
purchasers who have stated tbat they
would be willing to quit-claim in such
cases, and I believe that muuti trouble,
annoyanco and expense could be saved
to tbe property owner by such a course.
Referred to the city attorney.
The communication from the city tax
and license collector was read as fol
lows :
,tt i ~..n , ~ •

The etreet superintendent reported
(bat he had no jurisdiction over tbe
work of cementing the sidewalks on
East First Btreet and that some of them
aio iv very bad condition, the cause of
which he attributed to the fact that (he
work is done* on private contract. 'lire
result is that some work is done at re
markably low figures, as low as eight
centa, which doea not justify good work.
Mr. Campbell moved that the street
superintendent be instructed to notify
the contractors who did the poor work
on East First street to relay the side

these contractors until they comply
with such instructions,

The rtport and statement of said city

In reference to petition No. (iS7 from

A communication from L. Ilarnsnd
asked the council to remove tbe plank
fence on the outside of tho sidewalk on
Third street, part way between Broad
way and Spring, on the north side, and
also on the west side of tho Bradbury
block. He characterizos the council as
being too liberal. His plaintivo epistle
concluded thus:
"But yon fellows are liberal—too much
so. It's unly on poor devils, as the crib
folk who don't give you boodle, that you
ate exacting."
The reference was evidently intended
for tbe police commission, but it fell in
to the wrcng hands.
The peculiarity of the communication
called forth sympathy from the enUre
body, but it was immediately ordered
thrown into the waste basket.
Chairman Nickell favored the removal
of tbe fence, but said that no communi
cation couched in such long lage would
be entertained by the enuncil.
The communication was taken as al
most bordering on obscenity, and its
author certainly did not receive any
commendation or outward expression of
friendliness. It could hardly have been
taken otherwise than as an insult.
City Clerk Luckenbach tore the in
sinuating communication |nto shreds,
after winch Mr. Mum-on moved that the
street superintendent be instructed to
have the property "owners remove the
objectionable fence. '''Oitrried.
The clt7 attorney reported ac follows:
As instructed, I have Qltd disclaimer
in the enit brought by Lewis S. Reed to
quiet title to certain kits in the 0. W.
Wells trecr.
In the maltero! the suit brought to for
feit the franchise of tbe Main btreet and
Agricultural I'ark railroad on East Fifth
street, this action lias been pushed as
fast an has been possible. Owing to the
fact that Senator White is attorney for
tbe company, it has been a difficult
matter to have the case net down for
trial, but it was set for September 28th,
at which time I shall make an effort to
have the case tried, whether Mr. White
iB here or not. The case ia set in Judge
Wade's department, and if the caae ie
tried at all it will have to bo transferred
to some other department, as he will
not be able to hold court at tbat time.
In the matter of tbe demand of the
Oity Water compariy for $15, for water
furnished Prosptct park, I recommend
tbat the same be paid.
I have prepared, and herewith pre
sent, an ordinance fixing the width of,
sidewalks on Commercial street east of
Alameda at eight feet; also an ordinance
giving property owners on Vernon
street privilege to improve said Street
under private contract.

The following is the report of the
committee on the Chinese question:
First—Whereas, in some localities law
less mob 3 have entered the dwellings of
the Chinese and committed depreda
tions on their property and done vio
lence to their persons, and with threats
have driven them from their homes;
Resolved, That we denounce such law
lessness and cruelty as a disgrace upon
our civilization and a cowardly assault
t.pon these hapless foreigners, and most
earnestly appeal to the civil authorities
to give them protection.
Second—Whereas, the purpose of the
Geary law is not the deportation of the
Chinese, as some seem to think, but the
prohibition of their unlawful and dan
gerous importation; and
Whereae, the Chinese in the United
States were dissuaded by corporations
and attorneys from making registration
according to law, being assured that it
was unconstitutional and could not be
enforced; and
Whereas, the supreme court of the
United States has recently affirmed tbat
said law is constitutional; and whereas
tbe Chinese in the United Statea are
now asserting their deeire for an exten
sion of time in order that they may
register, according to law ; therefore.
Resolved, that we request our presi
dent aud secretary to sign by our order,
and on our behalf, and the secretary
properly to forward the following peti
tion :

the United Statei of America, Washington,
D. C.

tend the time for registration forat least

Episcopal church has 125 missionaries
iv the empire. It has churches, ehapele,
dwellings, school buildings, hospitals,
printing presses and other property to
tbe amount of over $4J0,000. We have

periled. To this tbe Christian senti
