2 w glxz ml g,s$xnn ASTOPvIA, OREGON : , 4 . C. IEIiAXD EDITOR TUESDAY .31 ay 2, 1876. COMMON COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS. The regular monthly meeting of the Common Council was held at the usual hour last evening, Mayor Case presiding. A full Board of Councilmen, Messrs. H. Brown, E. Eerrell, George Elavel P. E. Eerehen, fx. Heed, andD.Jv. Warren were present. Minutes of previous meetings wrts read and approved. Petition of the Wallamet Transpor tation and Locks Company, ly the representative of the company, Mr. P. L. Cherry, was received, read and considered, asking for remission of taxes, which upon careful hearing was rejected. Petition of S. N. Arrigoni, J. M. Shively, N. Ivofoed, Rev. T. A. ELyland, and others, for the improve- ment of "West-eighth street from the "Water street roadway to Wall street, was granted. Petition of D. Iv. Warren for priv ileges of wharling to a depth of twenty two feet of water" at mean low tide, or to the established line of the water front north of lot nine, block fifty-two and a half, was granted. Petition of J. T. Brown, B. B. Turley, and the Astoria Truck and Dray Company (by T. S. Jewett) for remission and exemption of licenses in consequence of the bad condition of streets, was rejected. A motion to grant the request of petitioners drew out considerable dis- cussion. Mr. warren was m lavor of repealing the ordinance altogether (number one hundred and thirteen) imposing this tax, as he was ojrposed to taxing teams at present. Mr. Flavel would also favor the repeal of the ordinance rather than accept the request of petitioners, but inasmuch as numer ous streets of the city were now kept in repair for the benefit of teams, felt that the owners should pay something for the benefits so conferred, unless all were served alike, and outside team sters permitted to come in during the . summer season when there was business to justify them. Mr. Ferchen agreed with Mr. Flavel, and cited the present Water street roadway as evidence of the fact that the city had already pro vided every facility necessaiy to com municate with one of the leading outside docks. All other docks were connected, and as Captain Flavel had remarked, we are building new streets just as fast as we can to accommodate and foster the interest. Mr. Peed and Mr. Ferrell each entertained sim jlar views, and the motion to grant the request was lost by a unanimous vote. A remonstrance to a part of the proposed improvement of Main street, signed by Messrs. Montgomery, Badol let, Spelimeir, and others representing eight hundred and 'fifty feet, between Concomly and Jefferson streets, was rejected. C consideration of this proposition also elicited much discussion. The motive actuating the remonstrants were based upon the theoiy that inas much as that part of the proposed improvement consists now of rocky foundation from ballast of vessels, it would prove to be better than the planking contemplated, and would work hardship upon the remonstrants in case they are compelled to plank over it. The fact that the street is in an unfinished condition at present, and it being very doubtful as 'to the tune when it may be property completed, coupled with the more important fact that action favorable to the remon strance would invalidate- the notice under which the instrument had been .signed, was cause for refusal on the part of the board to comply with the request, .hence a . motion recognizing the remonstrance was lo3t. The Committee on Ways and Means reported certain dues delinquent for street improvements completed some time ago, and paid for outside of the city treasmy, and suggesting that it might probably be that these matters were delinquent solely for want of attention, recommended that bills be presented to the parties for payment. The recommendation was acquiesced in by unanimous consent of the Board. The Committee on Health andPolice made verbal report upon existing nuisances in Chinese quarters, and the probability of further encroachments upon the health of the city if certain steps were not speedily taken to abate the same on Benton street, and were instructed to proceed at once -and notify the owners of the property involved of the condition of tilings in this respect, with recommendation to attend to the matter without further notice. Mr. Ferchen, from, the Committee on Public property, verbally reported on the condition of the City Cemetery, and it was recommended that steps be taken for some immediate improve ment in that direction. The Committee on Hides and Regu lations verbally reported that there was nothing required in that depart ment of the city government except it be to adopt some measures compelling the attendance of executive officers at meetings of the board. The sugges tion was properly sanctioned, and the Recorder was instructed to notify officers to be in. attendance. The following ordinances were read first and second times, placed upon final passage, and passed under suspen sion of the rules : An ordinance granting D. Iv. War ren permission to construct a substan tial wharf in frant of lot nine, block fifty-two and a half, McClure's addi tion .to Astoria, to be completed in one year from passage of the ordinance. All ordinance providing for the improvement of Main street, in accord ance with previous notice, from Con comly to Court street. An ordinance providing for the improvement of Benton, Cass, and Squemocqha streets, m accordance with previous notices. An ordinance granting R. Hobson, M. Nowlan, and associates, permission to lay water mains in Washington, Chenamus, Squemocqha. and other streets, was referred to the Committee on Fire and Water for amendment. Warrants were ordered drawn on the city treasurer in liquidation of claims against the citjr held by the following parties : Messrs. Rea & Fulton, city attorne3s ; D. Ingalls, City Treasurer ; F. J. Taylor, City Recorder ; B. 33. Turley, City Marshal; William Oliver, city watchman ; ' I W. Case, merchandise ; D. C. Ireland, printing. The regulation of the board with respect to published notice to the pub lic recommending the sending in of matters pertaining to the work of the council, having been violated in two instances this evening, was the subject of general remarks, but in the instances referred to, the rule was waived with the express understanding that in future the rule shall be rigorously enforced, otherwise the board will be detained till day-light at the regular sessions, and then be compelled to adjourn with unfinished business on the table. Report of City Recorder for April was taken up, approved, and placed on file. Same action on rcxiort of Fire Warden. The Report of City Treasurer was read and xlaced on file. It shows a balance in the treasmy of 379 77, with probable delinquency at end of fiscal year, unless taxes are closely collected, amounting to about $-175. Several bills delinquent for lots in the city cemetery were rcxorted by the Sexton ; and the Sexton was instructed hereafter not to dispose of any lots without xay in advance by cash or note. There is a disposition on tlit? Xart of the board to remove bodies to public grounds in the cemetery in case the bills referred to are not speedily adjusted. The council evinced tiie disposition of fairness, but do not wish to 'suffer imposition and loss upon a matter so sacred as-the rights of prop erty in cases of this nature. Resolutions were adoxtcd instructing the Street Commissioner to advertise in the Astosian fifteen days for sealed proposals for street inrprovements ordered as per ordinances above. i Such proposals to be oxened at a meeting of the Committee on Streets and Public Improvements at noon of the 20th instant. The matter of the improvement of West-eighth street, on petition of Messrs. Arrigoni and others, went over ior consideration at a special meeting at the call of the Mayor, at which time an ordinance can be presented for consideration, and at 11:10 o'clock the council adjourned. The joint resolutions introduced in Congress on the Chinese, by Piper, recite-that: "Whereas, It is alleged that there are arriving at ports of the United States great numbers of foreigners of a class prohibited from landing by the act of Congress appro ved March 3, 1875, entitled, ' An act supplementary to the acts in relation to immigration ;' and whereas, it is notorious that said act is not enforced by the officers charged with its execu tion ; therefore, Resolved, That the Secretary of the Treasury be and he is hereby instructed and directed to cause to be enforced rigorously the provisions of said act."
