WINSLOW is The
i Metropolis of Northern Arizona. VOL 25. City Council Proceeding*. Last Monday the marshal cap tured Mayor Bly when he ven tured into town to buy some more provisions for his mountain camp, and that evening he was on hand to preside at a session of the council, and he had as co laborers Couucilman Beck, Cohn, Daze and Gillard. The dog days don’t make a councilman very good-natured, and the first one to get the glassy stare was a corporation known as the Winslow Gas Co., which asked for a further con tinuance of its franchise, owing to the stringency of the money market. The unanimous opinion was that the company had bet ter pay the debts already con tracted before asking for any extention. The old horse that has been serving the city got it in the neck, and the marshal was au thorized to sell the nag, wagon and harness at auction on Satur day, Aug. 14. , It was ordered that bids be asked for to put a concrete cross ing across the alley at the west end of the Elks’ building. The council then discovered that several property owners had not connected with the sewer as commanded in the ordinance, and Gillard was instructed to have the connections made at once, and assess the costs to the property. Mr. Laprade drew the next prize, when the council in structed the street and alley committee to advertise for bids to put in a concrete walk in front of his lots on west Fourth street. Mr. Flynn and Mrs. Woods were directed to repair their walk on Front street, west of Kinsley, Councilman Williams having removed beyond the city limits his seat was declared vacant, and L. H. Anderson was appointed to fill the vacancy created. A resolution was also passed asking for the resignation of Councilman Stoddard, because of his failure to attend any of the meetings. Mr. Stoddard is in the train service, and the meet ings have been held at unfor tunate times for him. The council then took up, considered and passed the tax budget for next year, which is published in full elsewhere in this issue. They also passed a resolution to meet as a board of equalization on Aug. 17 and 18, at which time all complaints will be heard. The monthly reports of the marshal, street commisioner, police judge, clerk and treasurer were audited, and numerous bills allowed and passed to warrant. Councilman Gillard asked to be excused earlier in the even ing and in acknowledgement of the courtesy sent to the council room a big bottlejof Billy Bryan’s favorite tonic, which was enjoyed by the councilmen and the spectators. The next regular meeting will be held Sept. 2d, and no further business appearing that needed attention the council adjourned so the Mayor could get back to the mountains.

Sheriff Newman was in the city Tuesday, and took a couple of our citizens back to Holbrook with him to appear before Judge Sapp, on the charge of selling bull-dog cider, whatever that may be. The editor has a long vocabulary of different kinds of drinks that he likes, and a few that he don’t like, but in rehears ing them over bull dog cider seems to be missing. We con clude, therefore, that it is a new remedy to cure prohibition. During the short time Manager Howe has been in charge of the Winslow laundry, the business has increased so rapidly that the old filter plant could not furnish water fast enough to handle all the machines, so the company, at Mr. Howe’s suggestion, has installed two new filters with a capacity of 5000 gallons a day, sufficient lor all present needs. Mr. Howe is a practical laun dryman of years experience, and the work being turned out now under his personal supervision cannot be excelled by any laundry in the state. NO. 28.
