The local street car company has been caused a great deal of annoyance by boys jumping: on and ore the cars when stopping and starting again. The conductors do not like to kick the boys off, but some of them are liable to be run over and perhaps killed. In order to put a stop to this 1'-? -T l : ? .? ittAwnn-r A lnvh-n rliar HI11U U1- LILIU~, nnwnic; . 111 .M... prepared an ordinance against it and submitted it to the Council last evening. The following is a copy: An ordinance to prevent persons front trespassing 011 street or c-iectric railroad cars: Be it ordained by lite City Council of the City of "Fairmont: That if any person, not being a pasI senger or employe, shall be found trespassing ttxton any street or electric railroad car within the City of Fairmont hy jumping on or off any such car on its arrival, stay of departure at or from any cross street, stopping place or station, or on the passage of any such car over any part of such street or electric railroad, such person so offending shall be deemed a disorderly person and shall, upon conviction for such offense, be lined not less than $1.00 nor more than $5.00 for each offense. | EXPENSES HAVE BEEN VERY HEAVY IN THE MANY IMPROVEMENTS ABOUT TOWN ? BOND ISSUE WOULD HELP US OUT. The City o? Fairmont has been pay ins out a great deal of money /or the new system of water works now tinder construction. So much has been paid out that the treasury is empty. Some much-needed improvements have to lie held back on account of this deficit. When the Legislature meets it is likely that a bill will be passed giving the city the power to make a loan on the system of water works now being installed. The city is now carrying a heavy bonded debt, and the people do not desire it to be increased. If a loan of about $150,000 can be made on the water system, it will greatly relieve our financial condition. The city will not become bankrupt by any means, but we have streets that ought to be paved and servers that ought to be laid. To Farmers and Wool Growers. I will pay 24 cents for all merchantable tvool delivered to me at Fairmont or places I take in. I pay the highest prices and treat the woll grower rightC. F. RANDALL, x - : ?.,.. N V* \\ ...

STREET CAR FRANCHISE IS TO BE CAREFULLY LOOKED INTO BEFORE BEING GRANTED ACCORDING TO THE REPORT. An adjourned meeting of the City Council was held last night. Although not much business was transacted, the procedure was rather siow and the time had to he extended twice. Councilmen Harr, Robinson.

Levelle's offer was iowest, he was awarded the contract. He will pave at So cents per square yard and if there is any broken stone to be furnished, the city will attc-nd to it.. Attorney A. L. Lehman appeared for the purpose af having the city to put in a four-inch water line from Woodlawn cemetery to the corporation line to connect with the line laid by the Bell view Improvement Company. At the present time there is only a two-inch private line extending beyond Woodlawn and this does not furnish water enough. By laying a four-inch line the people down there can have all the water they want and the people on the Bellview Company's line will be ' furnished. The city has the pipe on hand and as the Bellview Company agrees iu carry tlie cost of laying for two years, the Council ordered it done. The total cost is guaranteed not to be more than $300. The work will begin at once. The Hartley-Smith alley question, which has puzzled the Council for the past few meetings, was settled last night. J. M. Hartley appeared and explained what was wanted. The alley will be given to the city and Mr. Hartley will give two feet the whole distance of his lot for the purpose of widening the alley, making it 14 feet. Gen. C. L. Smith aptd James F. Barnes will -pay for one-third of the paving. Mr. Hartley will carry onethird of the paving and'the other two parties will carry the' remaining one c C ; c4( V. x !'"???sM pl: fei ^ ' fc ? ught to get you the support of the farr i If. that he is a genuine farmer, not a SS WAS - FORE COUNCIL third for the city for a period of three years. Attorney G. M. Alexander offered ! ail ordinance against jumping on and . off street cars when not a passenger, which was referred to the proper committee. The Ordinance Committee reported on the laundry ordinance and the Fairmont and ManningLon Railway ordinance. The report was signed bv Councilman Haymond and Hutch- i Inson and agreed to by Solicitor 1 Stanley. On the laundry ordinance they reported "without recommendation." On the street railway ordinance, "to be carefully considered as [ a body" and "amended in several par- j ticulars. and especially- as to that part thereof defining the streets and highways of the city along which said railroad is proposed to be constructed, and that defining the rights ot' the cars in passing over such highways." The report went on to say that other questions would be brought up by the committee when the ordinance was read. Councilman Haymond moved that the enacting clause i of the laundry ordinance he stricken out, which was carried, thus ending that ordinance. The reasons given were that it discriminated against the poor washerwoman In favor of the laundry. The curfew law was not brought up. Council then took up the street railway franchise. Mr. Kerrdall, of Mi,,, a railway nro moter, appeared for the Fairmont and Mannington Company and urged the Council to take action as soon as possible. There came up. as far as the second reading was carried on last night, two points where the streets are not wide enough. The route decided upon was to enter the city by Cherry avenue, Barney to ittntn then on Traction Company's line to Second, Second to Gaston, Gaston to Ninth,. Ninth to Benonl, Benoni to Sixth, Sixth becoming Eighth to Locust. This was as far as the second reading went. The two narrow places are where Cherry comes to .Barney and where Eighth comes tor Locust.
