O'Conner came in for scathing at
tacks a few minutes later when Coun
cilman Logsdon aimed a - personal
broadside at the own:r of Connerdale,
and Connerdale itself, - ,
. The point raissd by Mr. Logsdon
was that he did not believe the city
should be hr-ld responsible to the con
tracior for the work done, yet tin
project was cprried out stsp by s ep
undar the preliminaries to the Ban
crcrt law, and tie city ?s liable ex
actly as it is in o'hir improvement
districts. The matter was finally set
tled by a premature adjournmen: as
Mr. Logsdon, and the doctor were lii
the midst of. a heated debate.' The
preliminaries have been gone through
and the work is now up to the con
tractor who must look to the property
for his pay the same as the contrac
tor in an up town improvement dis
Wanted Sewer Plans Changed
A petition signed by 9 taxpayers
on N and O avenues requested the
council to have the proposed sewer,
now under construction, run down the
alley 8 between N and O and between
N and M avenues. The petition was
referred to the sewer committee but
a casual study of conditions discloses
that if the prayer is granted, property
owners on O strcet the no.rth side of
It must either run their connecting
sewers over to Pennsylvania across
other people's property or cross the
street and run through other people's.!
property again to come to the alley
City Auditor Mansager reported he
had found no errors in the ci'.y's
books for the past month.
The commission appointed to view
the proposed construction dt a plank
sidewalk on Second street from H to
C" reported the work would cost
$407.90. The report was adopted.
Washing-Ion Ordinance Passed.
On a reconsideration vote of the as
sessment ordinance on Washington
avenue killed a' week ago when
Councilman ' Logsdon raised a long
debate against it claiming the work
had been Improperly done the as
sessment ordinance was passed last
night. Councilman Dunn moved a re
consideration vote and the standing of
the council was determined when his
motion carried, all but Logsdon and
Finley voting for the reconsideration.
With the council In favor of the re
consideration, the final passage of the
ordinance was Boon enacted Into law.
