CITY COUNCIL ASKS FOR EXTENSION OF OPTION A regularly adjourned meeting of city council was held Tuesday night for the discussion of several questions arising in connection with the pro posed new municipal water system. Among the propositions receiving at tention was the reservoir and settling basin sites and the size of the pipe line to he adopted for conveying water from the intake in the Royal Gorge to the reservoir, hut no conclusion was reached in relation to these matters. A resolution was adopted, however, authorizing the mayor to ask S. A. Van Buskirk for a sixty days’ exten sion of the option given the council to decide whether it wanted the prop erty near Alpine terrace for reservoir and settling basin purposes or not The option expires tomorrow and it was deemed advisable to have it re newed until June 10th If possible. Preliminary work on the. water proposition is proceeding nicely, but in view of the great amount of It to he done it is not believed that actual eonetrucUon will bogie much.

City Council Instruct* Committee to Confer With Power Company on This Desirable Proposition—Moch Other Bosiness of Interest to Citizen* Transacted April first elossd the municipal year and much ot the time ot the city coun cil at Its meeting Monday night was taken up In listening to the annual reports ot Its offloers. The twelre months just closed were prosperous ones to the city, according to the sta tistics filed with the clerk. The re port ot the treasurer showed that the income ot the city from all sources during the fiscal year ending on the 31st, ult, was 339,718.76 and that the expenditures during the same period were 936,096.11, leaving a balance on band after meeting all liabilities of $3,622.64. The reports of the heads of the dif ferent departments of the administra tion had all been passed upon by the auditing and finance committees, and, having received their endorsement, were filed , away as part of the official records of the city. Following the custom ot previous years the reports of the city clerk and city treasurer will be published "so the people may know." A transcript of the other reports will be made upon the rec ords. Of the various matters submitted to the council Monday night, perhaps, none will be more interesting to the public than the adoption ot a resolu tion at the Instance of Alderman Pres sey instructing the lighting commit tee to consult the Colorado Light A Power company In relation to obtain ing a special rate for porch lights during the coming summer. Mr. Pres sey said that very liberal rates had been made by the lighting companies in some of the towns In the northern part of the state for this purpose, and if a similar concession could be ob tained here he thought many people would avail themselves of It to il luminate their places at night Such a course, he said, would add greatly to the attractiveness of Canon City as a place of residence and would light many otherwise dark places without tax to the public treasury. It Is a sucess In other communities, as serted Mr. Pressey. and there sppears to be no good reason why It shonld not be here. The proposition was unanimously concured In by the coun cil and referred to the proper com mittee with instructions to Investigate Its advisability. Or. W. T. Little addressed the coun cil upon the matter of purchasing an additional street sprinkler for use In the residence part of the town. He said there was great urgency for an other sprinkler and that If the coun cil could see Its way clear to put another into commission It ought to do so by all means. Dr. Little spoke of the unbealthfulness, as well as of the disagreeable character of the clouds of dust, which sweep through the residence section of the town with such frequency at this season of the year.-It was stated that arrangements could probably he made with the pen itentiary authorities for the use of Its sprinkler a portion of the time and the matter was turned over to the street, alley and bridge committee with power to act. The opinion was expressed that the prison sprinkler oottld he obtained for sprinkling the streets In the rssldenoe quarter of the town every afternoon and realising that half a loaf was bet ter than none. It was so ordered by tb+ council. < H. N. todeehsr addressed the coun cil at length upon the question of dogs, particularly of bnll terriers, of which breed he Is a great admirer. Complaint had been made to the city marshal that Mr. Beecher was har boring vicious and dangerous dogs on his premises at 420 North Fifth street in violation of the city ordinances and he appeared before the council to re fute the accusation. Mr. Beecher stated that he did not .permlt his dogs to run at large, and that they were not vicious, nor did they disturb peo ple by barking, yelping or other noises. In view of Mr. Beecher's statement of the case the council re fnesd to take any action In rsgard to the matter and It was dismissed as a trivial matter. Complaint was made that the waste waters from the irrigation ditches on a rose wood, Harrison and Redd ave nues overflow their outlet la the vi cinity of Thirteenth street to the de triment of people living In that sec tion of the town and a request was Made that the oHy take eome'steps to abuts Me trouble. was referred to the esmmlitM on streets, alters and bridges with pow er to ash i. W. Landau complained 9s Iks seen sit that the pint of tee sewer dpMani dte net letewrts with ante clent tceuracj the location of the “T’»" and that in consequence people are put to great expense la making newer connection!. Mr. Laaden laid that he had been unable to flad the “Y" at the iatereectioa of Nlath atreet and Whipple avenue and that he had been nut to much trouble aa a result Alderman Hiatt, chairman of the new er committee, ntated that many com plainta of thin character had been made and he suggested that hereaf ter the city should bear the expense of all excavation In locating the sew er "Y'n” If not found at the place In dicated on the plat In the office of the city clerk. The matter was left to the newer committee with power to act. On motion the council authorised the payment of the sum of one hun dred dollars to Taylor A Sayre, for legal services In connection with the prosecution of the suit of the city against the Elks club In the state su preme court and a warrant was or dered drawn upon the treasury for the same. The cemetery committee was empowered to expend a sum not ex ceeding twenty-live dollars for the purchase of flower seads, bulbs and shrubbery to be used In the ornamen tation of Lakeside and Greenwood cemeteries. Alderman Reeves on behalf or cer tain residents In his section of the city complained of the unnecessary muttllation of the shade trees by the fire chief In running wires along the streets. While the cutting away of a portion of the trees was unavoidable he thought that sufficient lodgment and discrimination had not been used and he expressed the hope that no fur ther protests would be made upon that score. The city attorney stated that while trees planted In the public streets belonged to the city people who were Injured by their mutilation would have cause for an action at law against the city. An application for a billiard and pool license was granted to R. B. Bar tor. A bond In the sum of SSOO was signed by R. B. Sartor as principal, and by David Robison, Grant Dickin son and Hunter Palmer as sureties. A billiard and pool license was also Is sued to C. W. Banta on the presenta tion of a bond signed by C. W. Banta as principal and by A. H. Davis, W. T. Brldwell and Prank H. Bengley, as sureties. A petition was read from Rambo A Simon asking for a permit to sell al cohol for mechanical, medicinal and manufacturing purposes as provided by the city ordinances. On motion the petition was granted, all voting for It except one member of the council. The water committee was Instruct ed to arrange for the construction of a telephone line rrom the city to the Intake of the proposed pipe line for the new gravity water system In the Royal Gorge In accordance with the contract made with the Colorado Tel ephone Company on that subject last year. On motion the committee on streets, alleys and bridges was In structed to purchase a car load of tiling for use by ths street depart ment. A resolution was also adopted authorising the city clerk to adver tise for bids from persons dselriug the position of street eprlakler and city teamster for the current year.

A petition was read from certain residents in the northern part of the city asklag for an extension of the water mala on Allison avenue between Seventh and Nlath streets. On mo tion the petition was referred to the water committee with power to act The special oommlttae charged with the Investigation of the bill boards be tween the telephone building and the first Methodist ohnrch on Bast Mala streets referred the matter back to the council without recommendation.
