City Council Takes No Definite
Action, Though Other
The refusal of Contractor S. E.
Brown to raise the city hall for $130
If he had to receive his pay In city
warrants brought up the proposal to
bond the city and take up the out
standing warrants at the council
meeting last night. In tho discus
sion, It developed that It Is be-
coming more difficult than ever to

cash and City Clerk Squire was In a
similar predicament. Most of the
councilmen declared that the city
should float a bond issue sufficient
to retire the outstanding warrants
but no action was taken. Council
man Nasburg said that the next time
the council fixes the tax levy, they
will provide for sufficient funds to

port of John F. Hall, the retiring city
treasurer, the question of taking care
of the overdraft of $1,515.G1 on the

Lockhart suggested that this be done
by taking that sum from the current
expense or general fund to make
good the loan from tho Second and
Cedar street fund and that when the
extra assessment on North Front St.
Is collected, the current expense or
general fund be reimbursed. He said
that under the extra assessment, all
North Front street property that had
not paid It had been bid In by the
city at the tax sale and that unless
tho owners settled, the city would ac
quire title to It within a year. The
council adopted Mr. Lockhart's plan.

streets now being paved except W.
P. Murphy and Mrs. McLeod present

ing that the material be changed

Murphy Is out of the city but Is
agreeable to the change. Mrs. Mc
Leod has a suit In the courts object
ing to the work done by the city and
would not sign. The council decided
to make the change as petitioned.
Change Ferry Slip.
Tho council ast evening decided
to grant D. Campbell's contention
concerning tho ferry slip on 'X'
street. If the ferry slip was
placed according to the new survey
of the street, it would cut off about
peven feet on the southwest corner
of Mr. Campbell's lot and not allow
him anyj sidewalk along the remain

change, Mr. Campbell will be re
