Sign Ordinance Ordered Changed— Water Coinmissioner Has Plan For Water Distribution. Owing to tlie indisposition of Mayor ■Sweeley, the council adjourned last night before it had carried out its en tire program, the only important act done being the passing of an inten tional ordinance for the paving of Eighth avenue east and Eighth ave nue north from Addison avenue to Blue Lakes boulevard, and setting Oc tober 2 as the date for hearing pro tests. All tlie property owners on the streets named except five had signed the petition which calls for the raising ■of the grade, the enclosing of the big ditch in concrete walls with a re-en forced concrete top and the paving and parking of the streets at a total estimated cost of $18,500. The business of the meeting opened with a request from K. Packard that he be allowed to put his news stand on the parking next to the Hutto building on the corner of Shoshone street and Second avenue north dur ing the construction of the proposed Dr. Baugh building, after which he would get room in the new structure. The council voted to allow him a place subject to the street committee's de cision as to space and location. Thomas Higgins and two others wanted to build sidewalks and park part of Elizabeth avenue, a matter which was turned over to the city en gineer and street committee. R. B. King in behalf of the Idaho Power company, appeared before the «council and said that Macauley broth ■ers had purchased a sign fourteen feet long to put in front of their place of business. On the arrival of the ■sign it was discovered that it ex tended further than the ordinance per mitted, as that provided that no sign should extend more than ten feet. The council said that one or two signs had been erected in violation of this ordin ance under previous administrations. It was thought that under the present rule of fifteen feet sidewalks on the principal streets no harm would come by allowing the signs to extend as far as the curbline provided that they complied with the ordinance in respect to the methods of hanging, voted to amend the ordinance to pro vide that signs properly hung might extend as far as the curbline, and the city attorney was ordered to draft the proper amendment for the ordinance. Hereafter the approval of the city electrician must accompany each sign ■ejection. Mr, King also said that lie had a chance to get plain steel poles for de livery eight months hence. He thought that if there were no probability of in stalling an ornamental light system for a number of years the city might be interested in this fact as it might use these instead of the usual method of hanging lights at the points where it was originally Intended to install 600-candle power lights. They would increase the cost considerably and if the city intended to install an orna mental lighting system this would be Inadvisable. The council said that the present administration would be out It was LUMBER nr 5 « COA of office by the time the poles would come and while personally they thought that the system might prove superior to the present, and while they further thought It unlikely that the ornamental cluster system would be installed for some time, they would not make any bargain providing for the purchase of the poles. Mr. King intimated that he could reserve some poles in any event. L. T. Warner was on hand with a speech about the condition of water pressure in the East Lawn addition, which he still has in his possession, inasmuch as the mayor indicated that nothing would be stirring in the water situation last night. Later on Water Commissioner Porter said that he had a plan worked out for the improve ment of the water system by increas ing its pressure. Mayor Sweeley said that this would be taken up at a spe cial meeting. The plan provides for the running of a sixteen-inch main a . w hi i I % u-l J f * I Ouiu I lllllltlliiiiiiiiiiii L,|| l ||m|Bililllliiiiiiiniii||||||||fe v j W l fiiimn imjinnmmfljij / n] % V-' lllllillllllllllllll ■ € l ■ f 8 o o ' V? \ > Q <D I >1 : t o(1 - ' s ■ (O ?.. 4 \ ,| :: / 3 «'V* M & M. •t* > 'This Powerful H ■■A X .. : :i Ik M hr r /■i v.;. . Xi Almost 34 horse-power from this reg ular stock Maxwell engine! 34 actual, brake horse-power! Proved by an accurate dynamometer test, made in the Maxwell laboratories August 10, 1916. There has been a lot of talk about horse-power, and we just want to let Maxwell owners and prospective owners know that in respect to horse-power, as in most other respects, the Maxwell leads by a comfortable margin. Not that we attach such great importance to horse-power. We don't We never have. Horse-power—abundant horse-power —is only one of many superior features of the Maxwell. We are selling motor cars—complete motor cars—not engines or horse-power. Horse-power is a matter that is second ary to motor efficiency and economy. A giant has no advantage if he does not apply, or wrongly applies, his strength. Maxwell cars have horse-power—all you want or need —probably more per pound of car weight than any other automobile in the world. But we don't make any loud cry about it. Because we have more than horse power to sell you. Because you are, and should be, inter ested in results, the net effectiveness of power. We challenge competitive tests. We invite comparison. Because we absolutely know that no car of its class or weight can surpass the Maxwell on speedways, on rough roads, through sand or mud, anywhere. And because we know, and you will know, that, everything considered, the Maxwell is the World's Greatest Motor Car Value! I 4 % 3 V •1 I I ? i! *. 5 / ft ■ a ¥ % y, Johnson Auto Sales Co.

It is claimed that this will increase the pressure in the dis tricts where it is now insufficient. Having passed the intentional ordin ance on the Eighth avenue paving, the council passed a similar ordinance for sidewalks for several blocks on Tenth street east. A petition for a short sidewalk on Seventh avenue east led to a recommendation of the council that Street Commissioner Porter make a list of sidewalks that should be put in throughout town and recommend action on them, thus preventing the installation of sidewalks in patches. At this point Mayor Sweeley an nouncd that owing to severe headache he would ask the council to transact such business as was absolutely nec essary and adjourn. The council did so, allowing bills and letting other matters go over until the next regular meeting. ATHERTON WINS G.O.P. NOMINATION Neck and Neck Race Between Him and Barker DIVISIONISTS PLAN TO RUN PARIS AS INDEPENDENT. Nihart Gets a Rig Vote and Is Nomin ated—Castleford Turns Down Cause of Division. The Republican state senatorial con test ended today in the nomination of S. P, Atherton by a narrow margin over J. H. Barker, the divisionist can didate, according to returns received. On the face of returns so far received , by THE TIMES, Barker has a lead of I six votes, but the precincts yet to be heard from are all against division ' and will give Atherton more votes than the division candidate, while the second choice votes will still further increase this advantage. Buhl gave 616 votes to Barker and only 64 to his opponents. Some of the voters there announced tonight that they expected to run J. W. Paris as an independent candidate for the senate against Atherton and Alworth. Swim is third in the Republican race. The Nihart vote proved a surprise to everybody and his place on the Repub lica ticket is assured, largely as a re sult of the sprinkling of Twin Falls and east end voters, who gave him their suffrages. Castleford showed by her vote that she has small interest in the divisionist cause by giving a vote I more to Swim than Barker received. Less than one-fourth of the total vote at that precinct went to the divisionist candidate. Herriman for sheriff; Wilcox for assessor; Brittomart Wolfe for super intendent; C. A. Ernes for coronor, and O. P. Duvall for probate judge, complete the ticket and B. B. Williams for commissioner appeared to be vic torious in the contested places on the Republican ticket, while J. E. Davies for county attorney; Dr. D. Albee for commissioner, and Prank Ä, Kendall for sheriff seem assured places on the Democratic ticket. * / \ a Mrs. D. D.
