Upon the final disposition of the
sewer ordinance Mr. Urice moved
"that it be adopted" which was
seconded by Mr. Shields. This
was the first time in the history of
the city that there has been a
failure to move "it be placed upon
its final passage" after the third
reading of any ordinance and a
dangerous precedent has thus been
created with a view to retroactive
The mayor hesitated about put-
tine the motion. He paid that it
would do no harm to incorjorate a
motion to "place upon its final
passage" with the motion to adopt
but he feared this would render
the acts invalid. It was then
stated that the new attorney had in
structed that course and it was per
sisted in. The motion prevailed.
