COMPTROLLER OLSEN DREW THE WARRANT Boinn I'eciillitr I'rorroilliiRii Thnl Nobody I'nlil Out WnuU to riillirr-Unnli lor nn Old IIIIITInit Win on I'llc. Ono tiling Is certain , nml that Is that C. C. Squires , the street swooping contractor , has received from the city the sum of 7 , 15.03 on the old disputed street swooping bill that was incurred during tno" latter part ol the year 1S90. In this connection there Is an other thine , nntl this ono has put several of the city olllclals to wondering Just how bqulros" happened to cot his money. Whllo they are burled In deep thought , trying to ifguro out tno problem , Squires Jingles the money In his pockets , but ro- fralns from sayinu a word. The story of the claim Is a long ono , nd Is known by these who have rend the papers. The trouble arose when Squires and Chair man Ulrklinusor of the Hoard of Public Works cot at lopRorhoadi , a couple of yonrs ago. Streets wcro swept and thrown out , estimate ! were presented nml disallowed until Squires had n claim of IT.lH.VlM against the city. At- tomnts were then made to settle , but instead of the breach botwcon the city and the con tractor being closed , It wus widened. Then thu council took hold of the matter and If the records of that body don't carry n Ho upon their face , KOIIIO funny worlt was per formed by some person Tiivhlpil I ) } ' tlio Now Council. In the first place the night after the organ ization of tin now council tbo whole mat ter was referred to the committee on paving , curbing and guttering. That committee , together with the city at- tornov and the city engineer conferred with the Hoard of I'ublio Works. The whole matter was dlcusscd at length ana In Its various phases. An agreement was finally reached and at the regular session of Iho cojncll hold January 25 , IS'J.2 , ttio following report was submitted ; "Your committee to which was referred the communication ot C. E. Squires with ref erence to street cleaning during the months of August , September , October and Novem ber , 1SOO , amounting to J7'M3.tiS ' , respectfully report that lib tuo city attorney wo have hoard and considered nil of Iho statements of Iho members of tlio Hoard ot I'nbllc Works with reference to the claim , and for the pur pose of making a full and amicable adjust ment of said claim and settling all contro versy between the city and the said Squires with reference thereto , wo recommend that the principal sum sot forth In tbo comtnunl cation of said Squires , towlt : $7,015.GS. be nllowcd him , sncti sum to bo receipted for by him as In full settlement of all demands of both interest and principal on account of said claim for street cleaning during the months referred to. " At the same mooting the report of the com mittee was referred to the city attorney for a urittcn opinion. L Ht Itcports on the 'Matter. Nothing more wus hoard of the matter until March 8 , when the following communi cation was received from tlio Hoard of Pub- Ho Works : "With roferenca to the amount claimed by C. K. Squires for street cleaning during the months of August , Saptombor , October and November , IMM. this board has adopted ttio following icsolution : "Hesolvoil , That the street sweeping con tractor bo nllowcd the payment of the bills undented for street cleaniue for three months , with the reduction of 5 per cent and without any interest consideration to date ; that this is olfered to olTeet a compromise and bring about n set tlement of an old affair , the board being sat- Islleci that the contractor did his work im perfectly. The total amount is as follows : f79ir > . ( b , less 6 per cent , $ . ) U7.2S ; amount nllowcd , tf-.lMS.IO. " Kor a few days the matter hung fire and was placed in the hanus of the city attorney. On March 15 the city attorney reported as follows : "I herewith return the com munication of the Hoard of Public Works with reference to the claim of C. E. Squires , for street swooping during the months of August , September , October and Novem ber , IfcOO , which was referred to mo by your honorable body at its last regular meeting. I do not know for what purpose this communication was so referred. So far as 1 can ascertain there is no legal question Involved. " \Vlthrogardtothomorltsoftho claim I have no personal knowledge. I do not know whether tbo streets for the months referred to were well smopt , half swept , or not swept at nil. The communication o'f the chairman of the Hoard of Public Wonts shows what action has been taken by the board. This action seems to have boon concurred In by all of Iho members of the board. " That evening the report of the city attor ney was placed on ( lie , which took with it the report of the Board of Public \Vorks and all other papers in the care. A Van Allowed In April. Most of tlio members supposed that nego tiations pending a settlomo'nt were at an end and that Squires would sue the city , but ho did not have to do anything of the sort , for during the early days of April the bill crept Into the appropriation shoot for that month mm was passed by the fi.llowing vote : Yeas Hack , Heohol , Hrunor.

Absent and not voting , Mr. ClmlTeo. The warrants wcro Issued and on April 11 Bquiics signed for warrant 1,2SI , amounting to$7,015US , accepting It as so much on ac count. Tuo mayor , not having Unown anything about the juggling act , approved the ordi nance and also signed the warrant. Tuesday night when the roll was called In tlio council for the purpose of ascertaining liow the members voted on the bill , most of thorn expressed the greatest surprise when they learned that the Squires bill had passed nml that the money had been paid over. Yesterday , since thov have learned the facts , they were oven moro surprised , and most of them add that they supposed the whole matter was on Illo. I > OIllvliiU Are i\plalnliij : ; .

Last night about 7 n stilt south southeast brcczo sprang up and before it tbo storm scud was swiftly driven in dirty black smoky masses along the hills to the west. Overhead the nimbus drifted rapidly on a south southwest breeze , tbo upper current of air crossing the lower at an acute anglo. East of the city the sljy was , black and the rain cloud seemed a dark blue curtain , cut ting off all boyond. In a few moments the cross currents of air had drlvmi the clouds bo a broad rift opened and the bright blue of heaven , lit up by the setting sun , as soon through It. Then a broad ray of llgnt shouo forth , aud on the great curtain that hung to the cast painted in bright colors the seal of God's covouant with man a beautiful rain bow. It was doubly wolcorao , for its loveli ness and for the glorious promise It disclosed. Thousands of "yes gazed whllo men and women loolicd on in rapt admiration , aud hearts gloomy wltti tbo dark and damp of the weather were lifted up with the hope of sun- shlno today. "VVo ore long on rain , " said Observer Htissierol the weather bureau last evening when speaking to a flnu reporter In Iho language of the wheat pit.

"Tho total precipitation for April wa four and eighty-two bun- drouths Inches , nearly live inches of solid water on n level , making the excess of pro- cipitatlon Just ono and sovonty-four bun- drcdlhs inches above the normal. " "How about the .samo month In the past five years ? " wus tbo next question.
