The roadiug of this ordinanco creat ed some disoussion and from tho ex pressions of several aldermen will not likely pass. Alderman Payno is the father of this ordinance and will warmly advosato its passage. At this juncture the following opinion of Oi'v Attorney Flint on the protest of S. O. Olive to pay taxes alleged to bo over valued by tho board of equalization. To tho Honorable, tho City Council of the City of Waco: In the matter of S. C. Olivo, asking ror an abatement of his city tax, ro ferrcd to me I have tho honor to re port as follows: Mr. Olivo docs not complain in his petition that no was not duly notified by the board of equalization and giv en a fair hearing bofore them. Until it appears to bo otherwise it will be presumed he was so notified and availed himself of his right to go be fore them with his witnesses, if nec essary. I am of the opinion that the valuation fixed on his property by tho board is final and concludes the rights of Mr. Olive in the premises in a legal sense. Judge Uooley, the lead ing authority on taxation, eays on this subjcot : "It is supposed that a board of equalization is inadequate to all to requirements of justice and it is the party's own tolly if ho falls to avail himself ol it, and its valuations are final unless otherwise provided, Respectfully submitted, John F. Flint, City Att'y- Under tho head of new business, Alderman Hawkins referred to ex haust steam in tho storm sewers. Re ferred to tho city engaeer.

Tho attention of The News repor tor was called to tho publication, in this morning's Day, that the North western Mutual Life Insuranco oom pany, of Milwaukee, had written a letter to Mr. Hawkins, chairman of tho finance committee, declining to take tho last issue of street improvo ment bonds according to its offer. Much dissatisfaction is expressed that publicity of this matter should havo boon mado at this timo. The roporter call upon Mr. Hawk ins to learn more about tho matter, and was informed trut ho had received a lettor from tho parties with whom negotiations for tho sale of tho bonds arc pending aod thoy had declined to take tho street improvement bonds, on technical grounds. He says that tbo offer of 05 cents for tho bonds was mado with tho pro viso that upon examination they proved to bo all right. They wero submittod to the atttornoy of the company who has raised a technical objection to them upon which thoy deoline to purohaso. Ho states that .he objection raised is not as to the price, as from tho publica tion the impression could easily bo de duced, and that tho negotiations, at tho price offored, is stilt ponding for tho sewer bonds, which aro being ex amined by the company's attorney, and will be taken if ttiey sh'ow up all right. He sUtes further that for pruden tial leasons, it was particularly ander ttood between tho mayor and alder men that this matter should not bo made publio for tho present and that ho considers tho violation of thU compact a very unwise aot. Alderman Licr also thinks that tho giving of the ma'.tor to a roporter was very indicrcet and expresses tho fear that it will bo a great damage to the city in dollars and cents. Hope He Will Get It. Tho purposo of Galvoston to pave her streots to the tune of 200 000 and tho o.ill for bids for tho same re cently brought out tho street contrac tors from all parts of tho oountry. Waco was in it, represented by Mr. Ockandcr, tho genius of street paving in this oity. Mr. Ojkandcr's bid was the lowest of all the largo number opened and ho will most likely got tho contract. There is no one hore but would be pleased to hear that ho had secured it. His exoollont, conscien tious and skilful work on the Waco streets, aro a tribur.o of honor to a most worthy man, who if ho has errod in his own work has never erred in his own favor. His work has always boen a littlo better than that nomin ated in tho bond. A GRAND RUNAWAY BUT NO ONE HURT. But bonodtted by going to J.
