Intra tl ttltl-1 not i z. tf. W. C. HAKD1NO, Pres. Considerable snrpriao was occas sioned Jnst in lor to the convenlnu of the city connci1 last evening, when it became known that the term of the so-called old couucllmen had ex pired fit 12 o'clock Sunday night. In fact, several of thoHe effected by the unexpected greeting were lu their stmt a, and refused to retire until such tiuie ad they had examined the charter whteh provides that the change shall become effective at mid night, October 30. In its entirety the meeting was of a slow and go easy variety, few matters of general Interest being brought up for con sideration. Mayor Hoover I tot ires. , Upon calling the session to order Mayor Hoover explained that the j term of the retiring council men be-1 came effective the previous night, j and accordingly that any business they might transact would prove 11 legal if questioned. Ho then spoke of tho eight years he had served as Koseburg s chief executive, stating that he had nt all times endeavored to give the city a clean and impartial administration. "1 might have made some mistakes,' said the Mayor, "but of course we are all subject to error. I have always worked ln behalf of the city, and now that my time has come 1 have only the kindest words for my successor, hoping as 1 do that he may prosper and continue to serve the city in the interests of the peo ple." Without further ceremony Mayor Hoover retired, leaving the affairs of the city In the hands of Mayor Fred Haynes. Talks Briefly. In "assuming the chief executive ship of Koseburg, Mayor Haynes spoke briefly, simply lauding the ac complishments of his predecessor. "I believe," said Mayor Haynes, "that the time has come when Hose burg should take a pride lu her ap Marance, therefore I would recom mend that something be done toward Improving the appearanco of tbe 3treets.'' From the tenure of :.he Mayor's remarks It appeared that he referred to tbe paved streets, no doubt of tho opinion they should be cleaned more often hi the future than in the pust. The Mayor's Message. The following message previously prepared ny tho Incoming Mnynr was (hen read by CM y Recorder Orcutt. To tho Honorable Common Council. Coin lemon: I have the honor to mako the following suggcM-ions: The affairs of tho city should he managed in such a way that the city should receive the equivalent of every dol lar expended. Tbe people want Im provements nnd wish the city to progress, and all they demand Is that we do the nest we can to obtain the boHt results. It will be necessary that, we devote some of our time each day to the Interest of Roseburg. It seems to be the practice in other cities to imike out! ninths of the ex penditures necessary to run the dif ferent departments for the ensuing vear. I would suugest that tin? dil forent comn.lMops s ihi It a report, of tho ninount needed for their depart ments. 'I he city mi st he cleatu I streets allevs. walks and other such places over which the city has jurisdiction The problem of a dumping ground should ho settled at once. Delavs oulv mean added expense as the price of real estate Is advancing. Maps or blue prints of tho sewor systems should bo procured nnd a suitable place in the city hall made i for the sumo, so they will not get I lost or stob-n. i All residences or other buildings within the prescribed limit of a sew er where sewerage now runs on the ground or Into a cesspool should be compelled to altarh to tbe sewer. Tbe :healtb of the people demand It. i ('omiril Of gjinli'd. j Tbe Mayor then announced that It ! was customary to organize the coun cil ptinr to the consideration of bus iness, hence his announcement of the following appoint merits: i City Attorney, (leorge Netiner. j City Marshal. Joseph Huffman. i Policeman, Carl Palm. City Surveyor, Charles Roberts. Klectric Light Inspector, John R. ! Loo. hire Cormn'srdonerH. Joseph flykes and Crafton Worlhlngton.

Requisitions Bellows, Josephson and Strong. JoeptiNoti Kleeted President. I'pon moduli of C. B. Patrick, sec onded by Councilman Mlcelll, S. M. Josephson was elected as President of the council for the ensuing year. Owing to the fact that he was the only person placed in nomination the. recorder was instructed to cast the uuamlmous ballot of tho council. To Purchase Sprinkler. The Initial matter of Importance to coiuo before the council was that of purchasing a street sprinkler, such action being advocated by Council man Josephson. In explaining his views regarding the purchase Mr. Josephson said that the time was at hand when tho city would be obliged to invest In a sprinkler, Inferring ny his remarks that the streeets were tn dire need of attention Council man Mullen coincided with Joseph son, and went one stronger, by urg ing the ourchasc of a dump carl. I Councilman Mlcelll also appeared In-: dined to Invest, stating that he bo- Jlevea It wise for the city to purchase a team. A prolonged discussion then ensued, and upon Dual considera tion It was decided to drop the pur-i chase of the team and cart and sim ply appoint a committee to Investl- gate the purchase of a sprinkler, i Mayor Haynes appointed Councilmen Mlcelll, Josephson and Strong as! members of this special committee. They will report their findings at the special session of the council which occurs tonight. i Establish Street I part men t. Concurrent with tho discission rel ative to purchasing street cleaning Implements it was decided to estab lish a street cleaning department, ' that the work of cleaning the paved streots may he simplified. It was uIbo suggested that a committee be ap pointed to investigate the proposition of erecting an annex to the city hall, such to be utilized In sheltering the street sweeper and other implements used undor the supervision of the street depart incut. Puvemcnt Accepted. ' The city engineer filed a report embodying the final estimates of the paving work as follows: Mala street $7,531.40 Cass street 3,447.46 Washington street 963.79 Oak street 963.79 Upon motion of Councilman Ml celll the report was accepted and the recorder ordered to draw a warraut for the respective amounts. The paving on Mheridan. Douglas and Jackson streets was accepted at a recent meeting of the council. With the allowances last evening tho War ren Construction Company have been paid in full, completing their contract with the cRy. A Prolonged llKcussion. The weight of the evening's discus sion prevuiled upon the question of whether or not F. C. Krear, until rocentlv employed under the super vision of the city engineer, should be allowed the sum ot $:i.8(, nlleged to be due as wages. The hill camu up at a previous session of the coun cil, but owing to the fact that he had made an error while working in North Roseburg, (he result of which cost tbe city several dollars, it was withheld awaiting investigation at the hands of a special committee. Last evening the committee failed to lie a report relative to tho claim, and Frear demanded his pay, alleging that he had already waited two months with no assurance of whon It would be paid. Counclliuen Strougd and Joseiihsou argued that wagos could not be held for tho alleg ed error, but on the contrary they con tendril that City IOngineer Har tong should he compelled to make good the claim. -Harlong, who was present, kicked cn paing the claim, alleging that the city was In fault. '.'I could not sp Mid all my time in North Rowburg at the time tho error was made,' said Mr. Hartong, "for the reason that, my attention was de manded in tho paved district. It. would liavo taken me nearly o day to lay out tho grades lu question, and In my absence the city might have lost a great deal more, consider ing the fact that the paving company was accomplishing work at the ap proximate value of $i,000 per day at that time." After a lengthy argu ment It, was finally decided to refer the mntter to a committee for inves tigation. Such commit toe Will re port their findings at a special meet ing of tho council to be held this evening. Minor Mutters. Cltv Knglneer Hartong reported that he had finished hi work for the city, and recommended that all blue prints and other valuatilo papers left by htm bo deposited In a suitable de pository that they might be safo from lire or ol her Iobh. A comrnnnicatlon received by City Roeorder Orcutt from the Page In vestment Company was read In fit!'. The writer alleged that the city was Indebted to the Pago I in est merit Company hi the sunt of $15, cla'Mlng Dint Rlugling Brothers had purchas ed a number of cedar poles on their recent vlait to this city with the un derstanding that tbe city would pay for them. found I men Josephson and Mlcellf objected to tho bill, and after a brief argument sucx-ceded ln Its defeat. The recorder was Instruct ed In notify Mr. Pugu of tho action taken. A number of persons residing at the extreme north end of Washing ton street petitioned Hie council for additional Illumination. Tho mutter was referred to the commltte on elec tric lights.

In speaking of the damage suit filed ugnlnst his company by Mrs. Henry Huston of this city, Mr. Ken dull said that as far as lie could me the controversy Is purely u ntnttei of law, and thorefore he had decided to carry the case before the Federal Court wltero It might be settled for all time, and thus avoid any possibil ity of an appeal. Continuing Mr. Kendall said: "I, believe that our wires are prcperl maintained, in faot, L am sure that the wire insulation Is as good. If not superior, to that found lu niauy sec tions of the West." Another nolnt raised by Mr. Ken-, dall during his briof conversation was lu regard to contributory negli gence. He said: "I understand that Mr. Etston woa warned by certain parties before mounting the polo up on which he met his death. Also that he was told to notify our nieii to turn off the current. That ho failed to do so appears a certainty, there fore I cannot see how we can be held liable" Kroin tho tenure of Mr. Kendall's remarks It appears that the case will be carried to the Federal Courts without unnecessary deluy, and will not bo aired ln the locnl courts ua anticipated.
