A full council was present la6t night at
the regular monthly meeting, viz:
Mayor Menefee and Council men Johns,
Eshelman, Nolan. Thompson, Laner,
Boss, Crowe, Wood and Saltniarshe.
After reading and adoption of minutes,
L. Story made a statement ' that some
seven years ago he borrowed $320 from
the city from the . Bewer fund, i After
ward the city employed Mr. Craft to sur
vey the city, earning $1,100 or $1,200.
Mr. Story, with others, took about $400
worth of his orders upon the city. The
question has recently arisen of the title
to a certain piece of property, which Mr.
Story wanted to clear up, by showing
the city's indebtedness to him in this
txjanner. On motion of Eshelman, re
ferred to judiciary committee. -
Eshelman then requested the privi
lege of the city for a peddler with a dis
abled hand to peddle jewelry without a
license Geo. Damns by name, a Ger
man. Nolan ' made a vigorous . speech
against it, Eshelman contending that
his deformity should entitle him to pros
ecute his work without paying tin cus
tomary license. The motion carried to
permit him to peddle until Friday night.
Mr. Bonn was present again. He has
been persistent in his attendance at. the
city council -meetings, on account of the
question of a contemplated alley which
is adjacent to his property. ' The com
mittee- reported that there should be
made an alley IS feet in width, north
side and west end and be fin. line .with
north side of Eighth street, and east end
of same be equidistant, between Mr.
Bonn and Mr. Whealdoh's- houses, and
that Baid petitioners file bonds with re
corder sufficient to recover all expenses
incurred in connection with the laying
out and establishing of said alley.. The
report was adopted. ' .' - .-
Mr. Johns recommended that the
street commissioner put from one to
three loads of rock on the new cistern

cheaper lights than they have been ac
customed to pay. Eshelman believed
that incandescents could, be advantage
ously used, that forty or fifty .fifty-candle
power lights could be put in at the prin
cipal street corners for $100 per month.
Crowe thought the incandescents would
give better satisfaction, Ross took the
opposite view. Nolan said that we were
getting along very comfortably at pres
ent, that the citizens seemed to be sat
isfied, and that he believed the matter
should be allowed to rest for a time. If
the citizens wanted lights they would
find means to- express themselves. It
