Affairs. Present Resolu
tion to Council.
The board of pnblic works of Ibis
city held a, meeting on lat Monday
and decided to do something towards
finding out where they are at ; whether
the council, the mayor or the publics
works board is "it" when it comes to
tue question of managing the public
works of the city, especially the
electric light and water works system.
This determination is the result of
the turning down of the man, Hender
son, who was reported to the council
a the man favored by the public
works board for the -position of
suprintendant of the system.
While, as stated, the board feel
that it ought to know its powers and
privilges, the members are by no means
in favor of the hammer-and-torigs
m-tnods of experiment, preferring
narmony.
In order to concliate the council and
piomite that harmony the board de
cidel to present to the council a court
h.j:is resolution calling attention t,
wi.at me noun! is striving to bring
alout and anking that the .council

of the c 11 was enacted last Monday

Tlie int-'reutiug part of tlu per
formance began when the bond of Iaac
Cohen came up for acceptance and thA
boudmen ther-'U were brought out
, into the llci.f iight. Objection was
' raided to the validity of the bond and

aired op. it 'M pretty well recognized
that this year's crop ran mostly to
chalT and that, If there was no scaling
down somewhere, the bushels won Id be
all pecks. Then the curtain rang
down on the first act nnd City Attorney
Abbott, who was present as couustd
for the lnard and Attorney Watse n
who wan there in the interest of
several clients, were brought on for
specialties. In a monologue between the
attorneys and some of the council it
developed that the real objection to
the Cohen bond was not the bonds but
the fact that Mr. Cohen's business
methods are of the peripatetic order
and In delivering his goods about the
city and adjacent locations h worked
a hardship on other saloon keeper who
do not lielieve in the peddling method.
The council had no objection to Mr.
Cohen's takins? out a license so long as
he confined his business si.here to the
four walls of his building but when he
enlarged his circle so as to make the
c mt n.'s of his buinehs place co-ex' ant
with the horizon of (Jod's
blue nky. the council thought that his
license ought to !e commenurate in
in tinaucial returns. 1 here was
considerable discussion of the matter.
Attorney Abbott gave the council the
opinion that Mr. Cohen can not peddle
his goods if the officials care to lraw
tle line sharply and explained to the
board just what rights Mr. Cohen had
in the premises. This soothed their
ire and softened their hearts with such
symathy that when Mr. Wa'son had

To the Mayor and the Council of

large sum ot money .with, which to
construct- a water power -system ' of
electric lights and has erected a plant
iuueu u irom ;ne mmdrea .Thousand
to One Hundred Vift Th,,u
Dollars, and now has the consentient
annual .expense of the int
bonds and maintenance of the plant;
and
WHFUFAS. it is of the greau-st
necessity that the earnings of the plant
should be as great as possible, and in
onier to lne't thee innul i...
cpl-nt ,expcne. now. therefore
This board tinds the following con
ditions existing and m ikes the follow
ing , recommendations , the council
fVr your consideration :
I. The old part of the wiring of
the electric light plant is in very b.-ul
Condition ; the transformers are of an
old type and are in m-niv instanc.-s
very much overhnded. and. therefore,
furr.ih pour mtvic t i consutneis It
is, therefore, necessary to have a
thorough overhauling of thw wiring of
the whole system.
2. The system of water mains and
hydrants are in many instances in lad
repair and leaky.
'5. A map showing all of the .
9.,lP...K?,,'rrai.rc'lut !' "needed to U; o.i
file in the city office.
4. A no a apparatus of new type of
dynamo is about to l installed in
the station, and a system of street
lighting alsut to tm introduced.
5. Continual attention to the water
power plant and machinery la now
demanded to insure safety and satis
factory working under all conditions,
together with other requirments which
will present themselves from time to
time and at different seasons of the
jear. All of which are peculiar to
water works, electric light plants and
sewerage, particularly the installation
ot meters whereby and eqautable
system of charges can t maintained.
AND. WHEREAS. The Council has.
by an ordinance, taken the power from
the Hoard of Public Works to hire a
suierintendeni and vested this power
in the mayor, now, therefore,
Prompted by a desire to have the
whole plant run on a business basis,
we, the board of public works, do here
by recommend that a competent water
works and electric liht srperintendant
Ik employed at once, or as soon as
possible, to make a thorough examina
tion of the present system of wiling,
both of the streets and in the residences, j
halls or t-t ms using the electric cnt-i
rent, and to examine the transformers j
and make such changes in them and ,
in the lines of wiring as will remedy
the existing defects in the present sys
tem that have for some years existed,
and put the whole lighting plaut in
such shape and eonditionas will perfect
the service to the js-nple ; and further,
to devise and determine the most
approved method of street lighting
anl to assist in making the new
schedule of rates, Isith for water and
light seivice, and to make the former
will be made next Monday at the
N'ime time that the other city appoint
ments are pulled off. the consensus ot
opinion being that the side show and
me nig snow should perform at
and the same time.

HIVE MAPLE OJtOVE FIHE PRO
TECT I ON".
mioiw came near oeing a serious
ore oocnrre.l down in the lower end of
Maple drove last Tuesday. A fin
suineu in a wooa pi.e belonging to
Ed Orop and lief ore it could be ex
unguisiiM a Parn caught fire and
several houses were threatened. Th
wind was blowing a gale and but for
the strenuous exertion of the neighbors
who lornied a bucket briirade, and tne
facte that Robert Muutis hid the city
water m his place, several houses
would have burned up.
in tins connection we are Io l to
remark that that end of the city is
entitle 1 to one of the hose carts and to
a separate fire team. "There is an old
cart in the tire hall and plenty of hose
that can Iw fixed up an I put on the
c irt and the outfit stationed in some
convenient sp t on the loca'iou. Then
if u fire occurs the men who are alwavn
in the neighborhood can at once apply
the water, whereas under tin present
arrangement a .messenger has to be
sent to ring the bull and the tire com
p my has to make the run away out
th'-re, The time consumed in these
m muveis would give any h re such a
start that before it could le got under
coutiol the greater 'portion of tho
building vvould h destroyed if not
totally consumed. We would respect
fully call this matter to the attention
of the tire department.
