To the of Council La Grand",
Sirs:- , . ''.
I hereby re coo m mend to yoa the
advisiuiiiiy or. in owe uwiuw w wlm
holding and Investigation of the
charges lately msde against a member
of the council, regarding Ma with
holding from the com ml tie, on ways
and means a bid for the construction
of the heating plant in the city hall.
I reccommend toat an investigation
by the members of the oounoil be
held, and that the gentleman, who 'it
ia alleged aabmited to a member of
the ways and means committee,
bid fo the construction of such work,
be given an opportunity to come be-
fore the council and give evidence re
' garding such transaction.
I also wish to call the attention of
the oounoil at this time to the matter
of the city pound. O rent complaint
has been, and ia still being made of
the city keeping a pound ao closely
joining family residences of citizens,
and It is stated to me by residents ia
the neighborhood that the manner of
the officers keeping the pound, and
the kind of animals kept therein has
already beoome a source of great an
noyanoe and discomfort to the peoule
living near the pound. My attention
has also been called to the city jail
near wbichtha pound master seems to
have been keeping dogs taken up by
aim. The comp'alnt is made by peo
ple living some little distance from
the jail tbst keeping bo many animals
of tills kljid, where I hoy are, Is a
great nuisance to the neighborhood.

tLe fact that the pound master haa al
icady been killing doga at that place,
and great objection haa been raised
especially by ladles living near this
place. L therefor, not' only reooom
mend to the council, but urge that it
at once take aome steps to : cancel the
lease for the pteaent pound, and to
locate one farther removed from reel
dents, and that the pound muter be
instructed to discontinue confining
dogs at or near the city Jll, and es
pecially to discontinue . killing . any
dogs on those premises. :..
1 wish also to cell the attention of
the nembers of the council to' their
duty to at once see the owner of pre
misee, along which aide-walks are built
be compelled to plaoe them in repair
and I recommend that the city attorn
ey to at once investigate the city or
dinances as to whether or not they
are sufficient to maintain .. a lien

walks where the same shall be ordered
repaired at the expense of such . pro

I also ei mostly call th" attention
of the council to the habit of the de-
Mwinan and nthora laa-lna their
wagons in the street. This habit has
beoome a greart nuisance of the city,
aud many times dangerous to people
traveling on - streets and . sidewalks
My attention haa also been called to

Lostioe April 6 The city of Lostine,
Wallowa county, suffered a fire this
morning which wiped out one balf ol
the business portion of-the city. And
as there is no waterworks here, it was
only by hard fighting that other
buildings were not destroyed. The
total loss is estimated at $16,000. The
fire started at 3:30 this morning io the
rear of the Masonio OJd Fellows lodges
which are owned jointly. At there had
been no one in the ba lding for some
time, it is ihoaght to be tbe work of
an incendiary. ' ' ': 1 ' '
