a result of the odors from the plant
and report back with a view to nak-;

Messrs. Huggins and Yount appear-,
ed before the board with their coun

submitted two propositions. One was
for the city to buy the property out-,
rights $3,000 for Mr.- Huggins' place

was for them to name a man, the city
another and the two a third to inves

to be binding: on both parties.
The city agreed to look into .the val
