wsMon with all invent except Council
man Robinson. After the reading of
the minutes of the previous mooting hy
the aitilitor the Mayor nddies-ed the
following communication to the city
council :
Gentlemen of the Council: I have
the honor to call your attention to Or
dinance No. 1213. page 319 of the City
Charter which provides: that no up- ;
vertiso for bid. In that way we would
iu-uiv a more uniform if not a more
reasonable price; under the present ys
tem the price for upplie fluctuate.
This. Council has a splendid record
for bating managed Ihe city's alTair
well, and I fee! that whenever a sug

order signed bv the auditor and police
judge, and approved bv the mayor,
which order shall set forth the fact
that the purchase of supplies aie au
thorized by the Common Council, etc..
the only exceptions Wing, in the case
where the Fire Engine may be in need
of immediate repairs, when the Com
mittee on Fire and Water may expend
a sum not exce lling $bHi. or in case
vi emerirenev when the committee on
Streets and Public Ways m
sum not exceeding 100 for the purpose
of street improvements. The system ad
vised in this ordinance is one that is
in use in every well regulated bttsine-s
house and the Municipal Government is
after all but a business institution.
Permit me also to suggest the advis-
enloleed requiring the stieet to be in

li.'s been made.

was adopted.
A re-oliition granting the property

A rfHolution to improve Fourth street
from Ator to the railroad track wiifi
laid over until the next meeting in order
that an inquiry might he made to -ee if

At the conclusion of the routine lmi
nem the council listened to a number of
speeche-i from members of the Shively
Improvement Club relating especially to
the offer of .Mr. Parker to give certain
land to the city provided the council
would express favorable opinion toward
the improvement of Irving avenue. The
property connects Irving avenue in Me,
dure with Irving avenue in
Shively's, and all the resident
along that street seem to desire
that the donation be accepted by the
city and that the entire, street be im
proved from Kighth street to Fortieth
street. President Osborn o ft ho Club,
Mr. Parker, and others expressed them
selves on the matter at length and as a
result a better understanding was peach
ed between the council and the club
members. It is likely that in view of
the almost universal desire of the Irv
ing avenue, property owners that the
street be improved, that, the council
will take some action on tin- matter
The council then adjourned.

The registrations for voting at. the
primaries closes on April In, and per
sons who register but. fail to declare
their politics cannot vole at the prim
aries. All voters who negirder before
April 10th do not have to register again
to vote at the .June election. Out: of the
110H voters who have registered, over
000 have declared their politics as lie
publican, the remaining number being
divided between Democrats, Socialists
and independents.
The indication are that about 2000
voters will n-gister for the prima rica,
and the result is problematical. It is
estimated tht there are fully 3000
voters in the county, ami those who do
not register are niosfly Democrat and
Socialists who expect to nominate tick
ets by petition or assembly. An as
sembly requires 100 voters to meet in a
mass meeting and nominate a ticket, and
it is very evident from the registration,
that the Democrats intend to bold nn
assembly on the 21st of April and
