Being the first meeting of the month, reports of the recorder and treasurer were read last night and a number of accounts against the city were ordered paid.

Mayor Murphy announced that as the time for the city election was drawing near. Judges and clerks of election should be appointed.

Several members, of the council were In fa vor of assisting !n the movement on condition that the school district deed the property to the city. Mayor Mur phy was of the opinion that this could not or would not be done, but he did think that any improvements made by the city should be made a llan aealnst the property and that when the land was sold, the city should be reimbursed.
