Doings of thk City Council. In
the City CounciT, on Monday evening,
the Committee on Fire and Water ad
vised the purchase of four hundred
feet of carbolized hose, at $1 25 a foot;
nd thereupon the Council passed a
resolution ordering that on the oin
dav of December a special election be
held to determine whether a tax of one
and a half mills shall bo levied for the
purchase of the aforesaid hose. When
) we consider that the hose is a thing
that we must have, and that the ex
penses of election anil tax collection
will not be any too small, we think it
would have been better had the Coun
cil made the needed appropriation it
self. Letter List, Letters remaining in
