The Council Denies tho Protest Against The Report. Hard Fight Made by Some of tho Property owners. The Council \> .''•ti a t.*r£« Amount or Hluur Builnr-iia—Klekfi Against the fJtrtaat Swooping. Tho important measure before the council yesterday was tha hearing of the protest against the report of the commissioners on tho widening or Broadway, between Ninth and Tenth streols. The dflOOJalon on tho pros and cons o! the Issue occupied nearly the whole afternoon scs •ion and at the end of the arguments tho coun cil confirmed the report of tho commissioners and denied the protest. Outside of this, the council did little work of especial interest. Tho report of the board of public works was adopted entire and thus a arga amount of street work was put under way and a large number of street crossings ordered put in or repaired. The old street-swooping matter came up, when the residents of Figueroa atreet sent a representative to talk about the improper way In which the sweebing is being done. Tho re sult ot this was that the street sweeper will be notified to a weep the streets properly or have his bills disallowed. A large number of petitions were referred to the several committees. Tl*; hearing of tho Bcllevue avenue sewer protest was deferred one week more. The council adjourned to Thursday morning at I) o'clock, when the school bono proposition will he settled.

WIDENING BROADWAY. Tha rrotflut D*nled Hurt Com million* *»r»* Report c infl ni <1 The hearing of the protest against the con firmation of the report of the commissioners on the widening and extending of Broadway, between Ninth and Tenth streets, was made a special order of the afternoon session. Attorney J. L. Murphy appeared for the pro testants. He stated that the council must not understand his clients as attempting io stand lv the way of any public improvement. "Our conteniiou is that the report of the commis sioners is unjust and that the work of the com mission Is unlawful," said Mr. Murphy. Many witnesses, mostly property owners ou Broadway, were called and testified. The bur fieri of their song was that the assessment was /Unjust. Ono of the great objections to the commissioners' repo* t was that the street rail way company owning tracks on Broadway which aro not used, is assessed only $100, Another objection was that the assessments diminish the further away from the place where the street is to be widuned. Tho con tention was that thu business property on Jtroadway as far down as First or Temple streets even should havo been assessed nioro, as it is the most benefited. Attorney Louis Oottschalk also argued the case of tiie protesrants aud several attorneys and others argued against the protest. At tho conclusion of tho argument Mr. Klngory moved that tin protest be denied and the re port confirmed, and this motion was carried uuanim ously. THE LEGAL SIDE.
