The council last night passed the following resolu tion: "That all saloonkeepers are cited Ito appear one week from tonight to j show cause why their licenses should 'not be revoked on September 10." Both sides are sparring for legal ; points and it is not improbable that a battle in the courts may follow.

The ordinance providing for a j sewer in the alley between the Rosen berg block and Eggiman's Candy Kitchen was passed on the second ; reading.
