ALBANY. OREGON, DEC. 17, 1880. LOCAL MATTERS. Tba PettUora. By onler of the Council, we print In tills Issue the petition of Mr. John A. Craw ford, asking tlie city to release him frciru keeping in repair the fords and bridge over the Canal in the city limit. Tlie or d! nance granting the r!ght of way through the city compels the Caul-Co. to bridge the Canal at all street crossing, and kr.ep. thetn In repair. .Mr. Crawford, proprietor of the Canal, consider this tax too much, and asks the city to relieve Mitt t the bur den. We greatly d.aibt tlie iower ol tin; Council to relieve Mr. Crawford' in the matter, a such an act would be a species of clans legislation a direct tax .upon the property fodder of the city for tlie benefit of a corporation. In any event. If the Council should repeal the ordinance, the first result would lie an expensive ..lawsuit to tlie city, which might not be terminated very soon, and be attended with the most injurious result to city val ues. Let no hasty action- be Imd in tlie I. tat or letters, ' Uncalled tor and remaining in the Post office in this city lor tlie week ending Dec. 16th. IS30. Bible. A S MeClure. J M McDonald. Wm.
