the city will also pnesent witnesses
and the council and mayor will rt
solve itself Into a court and issue Its
findings on that testimony.
Points Held as Objections.
Attorney Slater presented briefly the
points which will be corroborated by
actual testimony next Saturday night.
In the first place, the remonstraters
will hold, as they did in the original
objection to the pavement and which
was aken to the circuit court, that
the council has no Jurisdiction In the
matter. Mr. Slater affirmed that an
ordinance dating back many years
was stll In force, and required that the
city should first give notice to th
property owners to build the Improve
ments and if the property owner did
not, the city could do It. This Is in
violation of the principle of the Ban
croft ordinance with which the Sixth
street work was done. ' '
The next point held was that the
astessraents were confiscatory in their
amounts In many instances.
Still another remonstrance Is that
the council has no authority to re-do
the assessment. -.Vork, following the

the testimony will be taken next Sat

was the fact that A. E. Adcook hadt:

for $35 several years ago and that ths
paving costs amounted to a little mora

that the costs were confiscatory. How
