_ i
C>um.i man Stockwall Introduces a Series ni
Resolutions Which Are Referred-Yes
terday Witn the Council
Whether or not to decorate the city I
I hall and thus formally recognize the
i Fiesta occupied the attention of the 1
j majority ot the members of the city |
I council for several hours yesterday.
The deliberations upon the subject ;
wore of a secret character, because the :
I issue as defined was the result of the I
1 action taken by the advisory board of 1
j the A. P. A., which, upon behalf of that j
I order, hud passed a set of strong reso- ,
! lutions Insisting that its membership. ,
1 both in publb' life and out, as far as
possible, boycott the celebration.
A week ago the council instructed
City Clerk Chas. A. Lucltenbach, as the
custodian of the city hall, to decorate
the buildig with the paraphernalia of
last year. This action was taken after
the supply committee had recotnmend
i ed that $30 be allowed for the purpose.
This requisition was thrown out, it is
an open secret, by the explicit instruc
tions of the advisory board of the A. I*.
A., other resolutions being during the
past week adopted in every council of
the A. P. A. endorsing the action then
taken. The old decorations were found
to be unlit for use. and then the cus
todian awaited further Instructions.
These he did not obtain.
Yesterday morning Fire Commis
sioner Jack Kuhrtz, happening by the
municipal building, stepped inside and
asked why the building had not been
decorated. The city clerk informed
him of the facts —partially—as they
exist. Kuhrtz went up into the council
and Interviewed President Teed, who
ptomised him all the aid in his power.
Other councilmen seen insisted that
Councilman Blanchard, who is th.>
chairman of the building committee,
ought tot make the tirst move in the
matter, but Blanchard declined abso
lutely to move upon the subject, having
! only yesterday morning received ofli
cial notification of the action taken by
the advisory board of the A. P. A.,which
he at the time had in his pocket. Va
rious councilmen pleaded with tears
In their eyes with the custodian to take
the initiative, but he declined to do so
unless instructed as a matter of record.
He was told that his bills would go
through unmolested for whatever sup
plies he mltrlit need for the decoration.
To force the issue squarely the Fiesta
management scut in the following:
The executive committee would re
spectfully request that your honorable
body take the necessary steps to declare
the afternoon of Wednesday. April 22. a
legal holiday. This action is especially
■ desired, as it will enable the federal offi
ces in this city to close on that day
as well as the leading business estab
Gen. John R. Mathews, as the post
master, came before the council during
the morning hour and requested Unit
Wednesday (tomorrow) afternoon be
by the city mad-- a legal holiday, which
would enable his employes to also se
cure a partial vacation. He could got
I no member to bring the matter up. on
the ground that the council had no Jur
isdiction in the premises. The genera;
left the august presence of the council
very much disgusted.
After several secret cant uses had
boon held it was finally decided for the
protection of all concerned, from the
wrath of the powerful secret political
organization, that Sam Adams, a dec
orator well known, be employed, the
amount to bo spent in beautifying the
front ofHhe city hall not to exceed $50.
Who employed Bam Adams neither he
nor any one else knows for a certainty,
as studious care has been taken to keep
all reference to the matter from the rec
The city hall will today be decorated,
because the building committee lias se
cretly ordered the work to be done.
The request that Wednesday be de
clared a legal holiday was filed.although
Councilman Snyder came as usual to tha
front by moving that the city's employ
es be not required to be on duty tomor
row, Thursday, Friday and Saturday
Councilman George Stoekwell sprung
something of a sensation, so far assume
of his colleagues are concerned, when
he yesterday afternoon presented the
following far reaching set of resolu
Whereas, the contract with the cily
water company, by which tbe questions
arising between it and the city have
been regulated will expire in two years;
Whereas, it is provided in this con
tract that the city may iiurclia.se the
plant of. said company in the provisions
in said contract contained; and
"Whereas, an expensive litigation is
now in progress between the city and
said water company; and
Whereas, The question of the purchase
of said plant Will have to be submitted
j to the people under any circumstances,
j that they may vote for or aginst the
bonds, which will necessarily be issued
for such purpose, now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That the water supply com
mittee be instructed to confer with the
Officers of the water company, with a
view to arriving at a reasonalde pur
chase price for the plant of said com
pany, and if such price can be agreed
upon, to recommend a submission of the
matter to the people by way Qf a vote
I upon the issuance of bonds therefor.
| The above caused the usual amount
I of feeling generalities to be Indulged in
I by nearly every member upon tho floor.
After the surprise incidental to its read
ing had subsided, one of the council
men was anxious to know what the
resolutions really meant, and was in
formed that they were intended In the
I nature ot a. beginning. They were then
I referred. Councilmen state that a start
i will have to be made upon the subject,
j and the sooner it is done the better.

I there be an extension of thirty or forty
days in the payment of city taxes which
become delinquent in one week, for the
reason that the county and stat- 1 taxes
