A full attend ance was present with Mayor Shan non presiding. After a reading of minutes of the previous meeting, which were approved and ordered spread on the records, the bills for the current month were read and re ferred to the Finance Committee. The report of the standing commit tees were read and accepted. Petitions for saloon license were presented by Mr. S. Caro and Mr. B. Mula. Both petitions were held up for investigation and will probably be ated upon at the next meeting of the council. The couuncilmen ratified the ac tion of the Mayor in the steps taken by him to perfect the acquisition of the Ditch Annex property which is being utilized by the city for caring for the live stock and street imple ments belonging to the city. A resolution was offered amending the ordinance fixing the exhibition license for street shows, street fairs or carnival companies and making the city licenses for a week of such exhibitions or shows to read $500.00. The ordinance amended provided for a license fee of $250.00. This amend ment was favorably received by the council. An ordinance proposed for the licensing and regulating of bill posting privileges was tabled. Action on amendment to the or dinances governing the use and con trol of water provided by the muni cipal water works and providing that meters be installed on all new con nections as made and on all old connections within one year from date of completion of the proposed amendment was deferred for further consideration. This proposed amend ment provides for the payment of the meters by the property owners on an easy rent basis plan and is de signed to adjust the expense of oper ating the waterworks on the equit able consumption plan. The meter rates mentioned in the proposed amendment call for a charge of 20 cents per thousand gallons for the first five thousand gallons used. 18 cents per thousand for * the second five thousand gallons, 16 cents for the third five thousand gallon^, and continuing on a decreasing cost basis for amounts used until the UNITED STATES POST OFFICE ' ' Newspaper articles, like sermons, do not Always reach the subjects for whom they are intended.

DeGravelles, city health officer, came before the city council and called to their attention the ex istence of certain unsanitary con ditions created by the existence of the present style of pit cesspools in use in section of the city not within the water and sewer districts. He suggested as a remedy for these con ditions the adoption of sanitary fly proof metal cesspools, a model of which he presented for their in spection with the strong recommen dation that some steps be taken to safeguard the health of the city by adopting same. No plan of action was suggested and the matter re mains in the hands of the health offi cer and the councilmen. A report from City Engineer and Waterworks Inspector Thorgeson was presented showing the costs of operation for the water works and sewer system for the years 1914, 1915, and 1916, also the revenue re turned from such operation. Chief Thorgeson's report follows: 12-4-16. Hon. Mayor and Council, City. Gentlemen:— Following find a report I have tabulated from the City Books and my records, on the cost of operation etc., of the waterworks plant and sewer system, for the years, 1914, 1915, 1916. From this data you can get com parative information for the time that the plant has been in operation, and an estimate as to what it will do in the future. I am quite certain that we can re duce the cost of operation consider ably in 1917 as well as increase the revenues. I have ipade arrangements to get alum at an exceedingly low figure and you will notihq that our alum cortsumption has decreased this year and also that the wash water has been reduced from 7.1 per cent to 5.9 per cent and I believe that we can reduce it to 5 per cent which is the average of-plants of our type. I have experimented with an extra screen or strainer for the suction of f,he sewer lift pump and find that we can decrease the current consump ( Continued on page 3.)
