The city council met last night for
their last time under the old admin

from the first to tho last. The last
dctnll of the bower construction was
looked alter, and an ordinance was
passed by the council governing the
connections and the right to join tho
sewer, fixing a penalty for harming
the main In connecting, and Insuring
the city agalst loss from damages
which might arise from Injuries re

Final Sewer Report.
A report was received from tho city
englueer detailing the work and ex
penditures on the sewer In which he
placed the total cost of the construc
tion ut $48,571.50.
Klfly-slx houses are now connected,
with the system nnd many others are
waiting to have the privilege of Join
ing granted them. Kor this reason it
was thought that It would be wine lor
the city to regulate the matter of
making connections as soon ns possi

protection from Ignorant workman

v. 'th n detailed map of tho systsm

pipes throughout the system, In or
der that In the future those who
wish to join will be able to locate 'he
proper point of connection with the
least possible loss of time and trou
ble. There was a balance of something
like $500 due the engineer for Ills lu
bors, and It was ordered that the
amount be taken from tho general
Hind and paid to Mr. Miller. This
ends the last Item In tho cost of the
