vilio last Sunday and attended the

lug and the regular evening services.

COUNCIL ADVERTISES FOR
BIDS FOR SEWER BONDS
The City Council met last night at
8 o'clock with all the members pres
ent xecept Councilman Davis, Mayor
The regular routine business was
quickly disposed of and bills allowed
with the exception of bill of City En
gineer Robert Birch, which was laid
aside, proof of the work having been
done not having been submitted to
the council. An amusing tilt took
place between the mayor and council
and Mr. Trowbridge of the light com
pany over discounts on bills for light
ing the fire station and pver a charge
made by the company for thawing out
a pipe that didn't have any water in
it. These matters were amicably dis
posed of, Mr. Trowbridge also making
an allowance to the city of 16.60 for
time that street lights were ont dur
ing the .months of November and De
Next the matter of sewer bonds
was taken up. City Treasurer Hull
reported that cash had been received
on assessments In the sum of $12,
974.41. The total assessment for the
sewer amounted to $49,018.29, leav
ing $36,043.88 for which bonds will
be sold, and City Clerk Barrett was
instructed to advertise for bids on
sewer bonds in this amount, which
advertisement appears In this Issue of
Engineer Riley then addressed the
council, stating that he had made a
comprehensive examination of the
sewer system and had found same to
be In perfect working condition, that
all flush tanks, etc., were in proper
shape and operating satisfactorily,
and that he favored the acceptance of
the sewer under the contract. A
lengthy discussion, however was In
dulged In over a considerable amount
of extra work done aside from tbe
contract by Messrs. Parrott ft Chris
toffersen. This In the main was for
concrete work under the Short Line
railay tracks and for work of the
same nature at the intake and bulk
head at the river, and the argument
was for the purpose of determining
a proper and reasonable price
that should be made for this
work by the city. Mr. Parrott, of the
contracting Arm, claimed that $12.00
a yard for this work was a fair remu
neration, which was strenuously op
posed by Mayor Sneddon and mem
bers of the council, who were of tbe
opinion after a short review of the
probable cost of the work that $9.00
per yard was a good price. After
some discussion Contractor Parrott
offered to "split the difference," but
this offer was unanimously rejected,
and Mr. Parrott was instructed by the
council to submit Itemized bitls for
all extra work due by the city, so that
a fair settlement might be arrived at.
The council then voted to advance
Parrott ft Christoffersen $6,000 out
of funds now In hand on account of
amount due for construction of the
sewer, and City Clerk Barrett was in
structed to issue warrant in accord
ance. The council also voted to ad
vance $100 to Engineer Riley on ac
count of work done. Council then ad
