On motion of Councilman Fink the mat ter was referred to the committee of ways and means. Like the report of the budget, the proposed ordinance levying the taxes was referred to the committee on ways and means. This ordinance fixes the amount of money to be assessed on each $100 of taxable property that will be used for the various funds of the city. The money appropriated for the use of the board of public safety will be for the payment of wages tg the members of the police and lire depart ments and for any new apparatus that may be needed by the department. That considerable Improvements will be made by the rity during 1914 Is shown by the amount set aside for the use of the board of public work. This money is used for building streets, sidewalks, sewers and other improvements that are decided upon by this board. Turn in Their Hills. Members of the election canvassing board turned in their hills for their services and some discussion arose over the matter. City Atty. Rnml? was of the opinion that an ordinance should be passed appropriating the amount of the bills. City Controller Joyce was on hand and claimed that the money should be paid from the amount set aside for the expenses of the city election. Sometime ago $6,0 00 was appropri ated for the election and there is still a large amount left. The men on the board ask the fol lowing amounts for their services: Miller Guv. $25; Samuel F. Petten gill. 525: Frank Hilinski. $25; Harry Knge!, 10 hours at "0 cents per hour. $5 Clint Rotors. 10 hcurs at 50 cents per hour, $5. The matter was left to the city attorney to investigate. A ordinance approving the contract made between the bo.ml of public works and the Welsbach Street Fight ing Co. was tip for first and second readinsr. A contract wru: made be tween the members of the board of public works and the lighting com pany last April for the installing of 30 street lamps in River Park. The ordinance was reft rred to the commit tee of the whole. V.'ant Strip of Land. Members of thr Rowman Cemetery association re;ii st-d the council to grant them th-- strip of land lying north of the r-orth line of Randolph st. In return f -r this land the asso ciation agrees to give land for the opening of Randolph st. as far as Miami st. This communication was referr d to the committee of the whole.
