camped on Rock creek and expected to

ing the levels and general topography of
the country. This fa:t had been assured

from the point where the water will be
taken out of Beaver creek to a point above
where the ditch is now taken out of Sheep
creek that supplies Morgan Lake.
Four ballots were taken in an attempt
to elect a city attorney and the matter
was passed over to the next meeting.
J. 3. Eddy, right of wav acent of the
O. R. &. N. Co. being present desired to
know what was the intention of the coun
cil in reference to the passage of an ordi
nance which had been introduced to regu
late the rate of speed of trains through
the city and for the protection of street
crossings. Mr. Edde stated that the
company very much desired that no radi
cal action be taken until the improvements
now i n course of constructions were com
pleted and both the city and the company
would know to what extent the new
arrangements would relieve the Fir street
crossing. The council took the same view
and promptly killed the ordinar.ee.
An ordinance was passed ordering the
improvement of 2nd st. also on S st. and
an ordinance making the salary of the
street superintendent S75 per month.

The office of the City Scavaneer was
declared vacant and the matter was trans
ferred to the supervisor or the street superintendent.
The council adjourned to meet next
Tuesday evening for further consideration
of the many matters before the body.
