:EDING AT THE EARS
NOW UP TO
THE COUNCIL
Is the Question of the Erection of an
Unlawful Building Within the
Fire Limit.
Editors West Virginian:
As the sun made its appearance in
the eastern horizon on yesterday, so
did wagon loads of lumber and a gang
of workmen who hurriedly began the
Erection of a frame" one story building.
1Sx40 feet. at. the corner of
Bridge and Water streets.
This building was to have been
made of the cheapest materia! possible
and occupy one of the best business
corners in the First ward. Instead
of using regular siding for a
frame house they were going to use
;heeting lumber, and the roof would
:iave been of a long fiat design, and
covered with paper. The workmen
.vere busy at this work when the
nayor, learning of the erection of the
milding. ordered them to cease. The
nayor is commended for his prompt
iction in stopping the erection of
;uch a building. In the first place,
he laws of our city require a permit
jefore you can build any building, and
his the builder failed to secure; this
ocation is in the fire limit, and the
irdinances of our town say that no
milding of this character can be
irected in this section of the city:
igain. this building is directly under
he wires that hold up the suspension
iridge. and a building of these dimenions,
1Sx40 ft., put up on the style of
i sheep-shed, should not be permitted
o be erected on one of the best busiless
corners of our city.
The matter will be finally settled
u council Friday night, when it is
oped by the best citizens of the First
.ard that the action of the mayor in
arrving out the laws of our city-, will
e sustained. If this permit is grantd,
council should at once repeal the '
re ordinance of our city. 1

Because of the belief in tho outcome

of tiie coming clash that probably will j
mark the close of active operations for f
the winter, plans are being pushed
here for a more active anif 'comprehensive
campaign in the spring. Within
a short time General Kaulbars will
have a personal interview with the
Czar preparatory to Ills departure for
Manchuria and it is confidently expected
that he will carry Willi him corain
orders that will renew confidence
vith tho battle-worn troops at the
rout. . ... - *'
Three thousand a day is the rate at
vhich fresh soldiers are 'being sent
