They had also lot burned their dead carcasses as required by the law of the state. He stated that he had not had their sup port in obeying them as he had hop ed. and that the work was going to he a failure if the spread of cholera uas not stopped by preventing sick hogs from transmitting the disease to those of his neighbor.

Connor Akin, of the street commit tee, reported that he had made an estimate upon the cost of a new bridge to replace the old cedar one on the east side of town. As his fig ures were $2,105, the board thought that it would be impossible to do anything toward buildln a new bridge this year.

An agreement between tho city and the property owners on North High street with regard to building a new pavement was ratified.

He also re quested that the board should pass $3,000 from the city taxes to the cred it of the sinking fund. It was so or dered. In the course of his remarks about the collection of taxes, he stat ed that neary all discrepancies and arguments in regard to them by in dividual tax payers had been settled, and that he thought that the rest of them could be adjusted. The ordinance providing for $100 ! license fee for all street fairs which come to the city was passed on third reading and became a law. The request of Mr. Derryberry for a sidewalk on South High street was referred to the street committee. All bills and salaries, properly o. k.'ed, were allowed.
