l«t-iw ns ki*mix& ISE MAKES NUMBER OF IMPORTANT CHANGES TO SAFEGUARD THE PEOPLE •«JS* 'Hi **-**&' -More Accurately Defines the Taxes the Company Is to Pay, the Sched ule Under Which the Company Is to Operate and Makes Company Bound to Obey the Board of Health of the City. •'-w-rswawiSMSB* The city council Monday amend ed the ordinance granting a fran chise to J. C. Bassett, C. N. Harris and C. A. Howard, to construct and operate a gas electric railroad in this city in several important partic ulars, each amendment, it was point ed out, being for the purpose of 'bet ter conserving the interests of the people of the city. The first change was made in re gard to the assessment of the road. The old franchise read that the road shold hear its just share of the tax levied iby the city assessor. It was feared that this wording might be construed to mean only the city tax es, so it was amended to include all taxes, special, county, state, etc. The next was regarding the pun ishment of persons obstructing the tracks. The former franchise read that all persons who obstructed the tracks of the company would be able to arrest and imprisonment or the payment of a fine, or both. The new wording inserts the word, mali ciously, before the word obstructs. The next change was to the effect that all patrons of the road are to be carried between any two points in the city for the sum of five cents, provided they do not go beyond the initial point, other words passen gers can ride between any two -places in Aberdeen for five cents, and transfers shall be given those who may wish to go from one line to. another within the limits of the city. Two sections were 'added to the franchise. One is to the effect that the company's cars shall be at all times subject to inspection toy the police or board of health departments of the city, and in the event of their being contaminated with contagious diseases, the company shall disinfect them, under the direction of the po lice department or the board of health. The other section added was that the schedule of the company was subject to change at the order of the --city council. Messrs. Bassett, Howard and Har ris, it is remembered hold the fran „, '-^chise in trust until the company has ^^twenty-five miles of road built and running outside of Aiberdeen and the S«5S Yi- same number of miles built out of Huron. They they will turn tlje franchise over to J. A. Cleaver, of Huron. The franchise states that within two years, by July 1, 1910 the company is to have-six miles of road in operation in and near Aber deen. /Jigf JAVA TO CELEBRATE GLORIOUS FOURTH Business Men Are Arranging the Biggest Blowout in History of the Town—All Business Men Are jM Working to Make It ft Hummer— Fine Program.
