) of Main street- It has heen known for
j some- time that a maiorltv of the council
favored the vltrlfled-brlex pavement, while
minority stood out stubbornly for the
wooden pavement. The latter have been
supported in their contention by a ma
jority of the property-owners on the street,
only a small minority coming to the sup
pdrt of the brick-pavement members. The
matter came up In the form of a resolu
tion, declaring it to be the intention of the
city to Improve Main street by paving the
same, the kind of paving material being
left blank. The council was a Unit upon
the main resolution, but when It came to
spaCe should be filled the trouble began.
The first vote stood five councilmen for
brick and two for wood.
This would have carried the proposition
for the brick pavement, but for the fact
that the property-owners remonstrated.
This made It necessfery-, In order to carry
It oVer-the remonstrance, to have the votes
of three-fourths of the members, requiring
one more vote. Neither side would re
cede" from the stand taken, and after mora
discussion, the matter was again laid over
until the next regular meeting, which wilt
occur In two weeks.
In the meantime, the citizens are com
pelled to continue to wade through the
