TWO DANCE ACADEMY
PETITIONS ARE FILED
ORDINANCE WILL BE SUBMIT
TED TO VOTERS
Protestors Object to Clause Calling
for Sunday Closing—Moral
Features Meet with No
Two referendum petitions affecting
dance halls have been filed With the.
city clerk an lie will begin the work of
checking them up this morning, If tile
petitions prove sufficient the ordinance
will be referred to the people at the
next general election, December 7.
Onft of the petitions is against the
dance "Halls" ami the other against
the dancing "academies." The object
of the petitioners is to prevent the
council bubsititutins one for the other
in the event the ordinal is defeated
by the people.
The dance hall ordinance contains
n number of moral features nnd it also
contains a provision thai dance halls
and dancing academies shall clo.se Sun
days. It Is against this Sunday cloning
thai the referendum has been invoked.
The petitioners emphatically declare
they ure not opposed to the moral pro
visions of the ordinance.
The petition was circulated by F. H.
Solomon, who circulated another simi
lar petition for the k me purpose about
a year ago.
At that time tho council passed an
ordinance having nearly the .same pro
visions as the one passed ;i month ago
and a nuffleieiit referendum petition
•was secured. When thin report was
made, to the council the ordinal was
revoked and a year passed before an
other one was passed.
The first dance hull referendum con
tained a number of Irregularities, some
of which were called by the ugly mimes
of forgeries and perjuries. Solomon,
who circulated the petition, disclaimed
responsibility, declaring hi agents hud
committed the irregularities without
his knowledge. He said yesterday that
particular care had been taken ■with
the present petition and tho city clerk
would find it clean.

With the nxeeptlon of some orna
mentation, the Main street bridge la

mentation ■ i nted by the cltj ongl
Tin plans Include a concrete oop-
Inff anil railing and eight ornamental

cost of this work will be 15300.

The board "f public works heard tho

Mr. Andrews complained that the

MAYOR FAVORS REVISION
OF CITY'S PERMIT LAWS
Will Probably Recommend Committee
of Disinterested Persons Be
Named for Works
If Mayor Alexander is returned to
the office lit- now holds and even his
opponents concede he will be, and if a
council that is In sympathy with him

that a. committee of representatlvi of
the chamber of commerce, merchants

As the present council yesterday re
fused to act on ills suggestion th it a
committee be appointed to straighten
