Mayor Takes Stand in Pros-
pect Street Matter.
COUNTRY ROAD PAVING
Does not Meet With His
To Pave Street Council Must Pass
Ordinance Over Mayor's Veto by
a Two.Thirds Vote.
Hulipving it poor policy lo 'pave
country roads when tho cily'w
bonded indebtedness W so great
that it is a serious mailer to main
tain its credit, -Mayor .Scherff will
veto tlio ordinance lo proceed with
the puiiur of South Prospect street
from mil street to the corporation
line which win adopted at u meet
ing oJ' tho city council lasL night.
Jt has been n. long tiino since
a measure has been il'ought so vig
orously and Iho lathers of it aro
oro to think that there should be
any public demonstration against
any of the 'measures that tho coun
cil deem advisable.
The mayor is convinced that the
paving deal i.s not all that it should
lie. JIo is lionrtily in favor of
paving Iho street from Hill to
Walnut 'street but docs not bc
liovo that I lie paement should be
laid for (lie benefit of tlioso who
own lots for purposes of .specula
tion and against tho wishes of
those who have their luinics on
tneir properties. The city's portion
of the expenditure will be very
heavy as improvement will run
along ono side of -tho city park
and I hero 'aro a largo number of
street and alley iutersc.cliohs.
Tho mayor believes that tho city
needs too mnany things and is too
far in debt to endeavor to pave the
surrounding country roads. In his
annual budget received hv tho
council last night, Mr. .Scherff,
recommends that council no longer
make improvements on (ho various
niiLui.s iil mo cuv unless tiio.v avn
sct(Jed. Jlo also touched
iinoii the eondilion of the sinking
fund question. On account of tho
largo bonded indebtedness tho citv
will hnvo n hard time for years to
come securing enough money to
make ils parent, on tho bonds
and to maintain its eiedit.
When tho ordiiuinco is relumed
to tho city council an effort will
bo inado to pass it over the may
or's veto. This -will require 'a
vole of, two thirds) of the eoimcil
nicu. Two inombej-s, Messrs. Car

this is the first time Ritzier ban
Ritzier did not want the mayor to
assess a fine against htm for tho
reason that ho contemplates going
out of business as soon as his 11.
cense expires which will occur in
about four weeks. Ho told the mayor
that tho average saloon keeper has n
mighty hard time to keep his head
abovo water and pay the Increased
tax. If the Sunday closing laws aro
strictly enforced many mote saloons
will bo foiced to quit In the near
future. He claims that the craze of
Marlon people for cheap shows and
cheap entertainment such as Is af

hard against tho saloon men for tho
reason that It is taking their regular
