Pipes fcafo from Frost Auditor
Kajbould Wants Help to Make
Out Warrants Notes
The city council met last evening in
regular session l members were
present and the chair was occupied by
President Loaf bourow
There seemed to be a disposition on the
part of the councilto increase tho num
ber of men in all the departments where
possible The retrenchment movement
was lost sight of entirely although there
does not appearto be any improvement in
the citys finances The near approach
of Nov 7 election day may account for
this desire on the part of Liberal council
men to increase the citys employees o
as to make a corresponding increase in
Liberal votes
It appears that through the grading
down of streets or other cause over
17000 feet of water pipes are
left so near the surface that they
will be in danger Irom frost and fifty men
were ordered put to work to cover them
over or sink them to a sufficient depth to
make them safe This work it is esti
mated will cost the city 23000 but it
appears it has got to be done to keep the
pipes from freezing
Mr Simondi introduced a resolution to
the effect that Second South street and
South Temple street from West Temple
street to the depots be macadamized so as
to afford a better approach to the city
From the Denver Rio Grande and the
Onion Pacific depots This would neces
sitate the employment of a large number
of Liberal voters
The resolution was referred to the street
supervisor and the city engineer for an
estimate of the cost
An extra force of men was ordered put
on the sidewalk paving on First
South and West Temnle streets Al
together the city employees were I
increased by about 201 and i Si
mondis resolution to macadamize the
streets leading to the depots prevails it
will mean an increase of at least as many
more and a Mr Moran said every man
would be put on that it was possible to
find a job for the prospects are that by
Nov 7 5 or 600 men will be at work
all of whom will of course vote the Lib
eral ticket How long they will be kept
at work after Nov 7 is a question not now
capable of solution
The CulmerJenningsLe Sieur squab
ble was before the council again on an
other communication from Mr Le Sieur
which was referred to the committee on

Barnes Byrne of the Warm springs
now want to return their new lease of the
property and revert to the old one In
view of the increased competition in the i
bath business they dont feel justified in
spending the flOOO for improvements
which was stipulated in the new lease to
be spent within eighteen months The
matter was referred to the committee on
public grounds
The health committee disapproved of
the catch basins in use at present in the
sewers and recommended that they be
dispensed with
Auditor Raybould asked for an appro
priation of 200 to for extra
praton pay help ne
cessitated by the issuance of so many city
warrants The requisition was referred
to the finance committee
The petition of the retail liquor dealers
for a temporary reduction in liquor license
cense was referred to the city attorney for
his opinion of tap legal question involved I
in case the concession was made The
license committee returned the petition
to the council without recommendation
In this connection Wantland introduced
a resolution providing for the reduction
of merchants and liquor licenses by 2
per cent on condition that they be paid
in cash not In warrants but it was not
considered

THE LE SIEUH SIATTER
St V Le Sieur again called attention to
a resolution of the council of the 26th
ult placing 4500 to the rnayors con
tingent fund to be expendea by the mayor
for payment of labor and materials under
the contract of the CulmerJennings
company with the city The petitioner
stated that under the appropriation he
has by agreement with the CulmerJen
umgs people paid out for labor 1400 and
still retains 2100 of the sum appro
prieted The petitioner further repre
sented that no agreement can be effected
between himself and the paving company
as to any amount due petitioner for ma
terials and that the mayor has declined to
o into an investigation for the purpose
of fixing the amount for the reason that
he believes it out of his province
Therefore petitioner prays that the
council will make a direct appropriation
of the money or to appoint a special com
mittee to investigate the matter Mr Le
Sieur offered to furnish a bond to protect
the city against Injury resulting from
such appropriation in case it be made
Referred to the committee on claims
THE WARM SPRINGS CASE
Barnes Byone lessees of the Warm
Springs sent n the following
A few months ago we petitioned your

I favorably considered and granted but
a
j
<
with stipulation that we should ex
pend in improvements on said premises
10000 within eighteen months from the
date of signing the lease together with a
greatly increased rental for the property
Wo now find that owing to competition
encouraged by your body having granted
franchise to a rival establishment the
city and the increased facilities for
reaching the lake resorts the revenue de
rived from our business will not justify
us in expending on improvements the
sum stipulated We therefore respect
fully ask the item of expenditure and its
conditions be stricken out that we may I
have time to improve the premises within
the limit of our meaqs and not be com
pelled to borrow money at a ruinous rate
of interest They stated they could not
borrow the money on any security they
could offer and requested that i the
council cannot strike out the 10000 I
clause that the former lease be given back

ginning and a few hundred dollars ex

Whereas Owing to the present finan
cial depression the present license rates
are burdensome to all classes of business
therefore be it
Resolved That reduction of 25 per
cent be made on merchants and liquor
licenses for the three months ending De
cember 31 183h provided said payments
are made in cash
Ruled out of order and Morans motion
moton
to refer the countys report and the peti
ion to the city attorney was carried
President Loofbourow asked to be ex
cused and Councilman Hardy took the
chair for the remainder of the evening
Simondi offered the following
Whereas There are many workingmen
in the city who have no means for the
support of their families except their
daily labor and the prospect is that there
wi not be sufficient work going on the
City during the coming autumn and In
ter to furnish employment to the laboring
men of the city and
Whereas We believe it to bo sound
public policy for municipalities in times
like these to do all in their power to pro
vide work of public improvement in order
to give employment and means of liveli
hood to residents within their limits who
would otherwise be unemployed and in
destitute circumstances and
Whereas The streets leading from our
principal passenger depots to the paved
parts of the city are in such condition as
to be muddy and disagreeable to travel
over during a large part of the winter
thus tending to give an unfavorable im
pression to strangers visiting our cityand
Whereas We believe the macadamizing
of said streets with broken stone would
furnish a considerable amount of com
mon labor and could be carried on in the
late fall and winter and would be an im
provement which would be a credit to our
city and inure tq the benefit of all the
citizens j therefore it
Resolved That it is the sense of this
council that Second South street from
West Temple to the Rio Grande Western
railway depot and South Temple street
from West Temple street to the Union
Pacific railway depot should be taken
out of the paving districts in which they
are now situate and macadamized with
broken stone in a thorough and substan
tial manner underthe supervision of the
supervisor of streets and the city engi
