COMMON COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS.
The regular monthly meeting of the
Common Council was held at the usual
hour last evening, Mayor Case
A full Board of Councilmen, Messrs.
H. Brown, E. Eerrell, George Elavel
P. E. Eerehen, fx. Heed, andD.Jv.
Warren were present.
Minutes of previous meetings wrts
read and approved.
Petition of the Wallamet Transpor
tation and Locks Company, ly the
representative of the company, Mr.
P. L. Cherry, was received, read and
considered, asking for remission of
taxes, which upon careful hearing was
Petition of S. N. Arrigoni, J. M.
Shively, N. Ivofoed, Rev. T. A.
ELyland, and others, for the improve-
ment of "West-eighth street from the
"Water street roadway to Wall street,
Petition of D. Iv. Warren for priv
ileges of wharling to a depth of twenty
two feet of water" at mean low tide, or
to the established line of the water
front north of lot nine, block fifty-two
and a half, was granted.
Petition of J. T. Brown, B. B.
Turley, and the Astoria Truck and
Dray Company (by T. S. Jewett) for
remission and exemption of licenses
in consequence of the bad condition
of streets, was rejected.
A motion to grant the request of
petitioners drew out considerable dis-
cussion. Mr. warren was m lavor
of repealing the ordinance altogether
(number one hundred and thirteen)
imposing this tax, as he was ojrposed
to taxing teams at present. Mr. Flavel
would also favor the repeal of the
ordinance rather than accept the request
of petitioners, but inasmuch as numer
ous streets of the city were now kept
in repair for the benefit of teams, felt
that the owners should pay something
for the benefits so conferred, unless all
were served alike, and outside team
sters permitted to come in during the
. summer season when there was business
to justify them. Mr. Ferchen agreed
with Mr. Flavel, and cited the present
Water street roadway as evidence of
the fact that the city had already pro
vided every facility necessaiy to com
municate with one of the leading
outside docks. All other docks were
connected, and as Captain Flavel had
remarked, we are building new streets
just as fast as we can to accommodate
and foster the interest. Mr. Peed
and Mr. Ferrell each entertained sim
jlar views, and the motion to grant the
request was lost by a unanimous vote.
A remonstrance to a part of the
proposed improvement of Main street,
signed by Messrs. Montgomery, Badol
let, Spelimeir, and others representing
eight hundred and 'fifty feet, between
Concomly and Jefferson streets, was
C consideration of this proposition
also elicited much discussion. The
motive actuating the remonstrants
were based upon the theoiy that inas
much as that part of the proposed
improvement consists now of rocky
foundation from ballast of vessels, it
would prove to be better than the
planking contemplated, and would
work hardship upon the remonstrants
in case they are compelled to plank
The fact that the street is in an
unfinished condition at present, and it
being very doubtful as 'to the tune
when it may be property completed,
coupled with the more important fact
that action favorable to the remon
strance would invalidate- the notice
under which the instrument had been
.signed, was cause for refusal on the
part of the board to comply with the
request, .hence a . motion recognizing
the remonstrance was lo3t.
The Committee on Ways and Means
reported certain dues delinquent for
street improvements completed some
time ago, and paid for outside of the
city treasmy, and suggesting that it
might probably be that these matters
were delinquent solely for want of
attention, recommended that bills be
presented to the parties for payment.
The recommendation was acquiesced
in by unanimous consent of the Board.
The Committee on Health andPolice
made verbal report upon existing
nuisances in Chinese quarters, and the
probability of further encroachments
upon the health of the city if certain
steps were not speedily taken to abate
the same on Benton street, and were
instructed to proceed at once -and
notify the owners of the property
involved of the condition of tilings in
this respect, with recommendation to
attend to the matter without further
Mr. Ferchen, from, the Committee
on Public property, verbally reported
on the condition of the City Cemetery,
and it was recommended that steps be
taken for some immediate improve
ment in that direction.
The Committee on Hides and Regu
lations verbally reported that there
was nothing required in that depart
ment of the city government except it
be to adopt some measures compelling
the attendance of executive officers at
meetings of the board. The sugges
tion was properly sanctioned, and the
Recorder was instructed to notify
officers to be in. attendance.
The following ordinances were read
first and second times, placed upon
final passage, and passed under suspen
sion of the rules :
An ordinance granting D. Iv. War
ren permission to construct a substan
tial wharf in frant of lot nine, block
fifty-two and a half, McClure's addi
tion .to Astoria, to be completed in
one year from passage of the ordinance.
All ordinance providing for the
improvement of Main street, in accord
ance with previous notice, from Con
comly to Court street.
An ordinance providing for the
improvement of Benton, Cass, and
Squemocqha streets, m accordance
with previous notices.
An ordinance granting R. Hobson,
M. Nowlan, and associates, permission
to lay water mains in Washington,
Chenamus, Squemocqha. and other
streets, was referred to the Committee
on Fire and Water for amendment.
Warrants were ordered drawn on
the city treasurer in liquidation of
claims against the citjr held by the
following parties : Messrs. Rea &
Fulton, city attorne3s ; D. Ingalls,
City Treasurer ; F. J. Taylor, City
Recorder ; B. 33. Turley, City Marshal;
William Oliver, city watchman ; ' I
W. Case, merchandise ; D. C. Ireland,
The regulation of the board with
respect to published notice to the pub
lic recommending the sending in of
matters pertaining to the work of the
council, having been violated in two
instances this evening, was the subject
of general remarks, but in the instances
referred to, the rule was waived with
the express understanding that in future
the rule shall be rigorously enforced,
otherwise the board will be detained
till day-light at the regular sessions,
and then be compelled to adjourn with
unfinished business on the table.
Report of City Recorder for April
was taken up, approved, and placed on
file. Same action on rcxiort of Fire
The Report of City Treasurer was
read and xlaced on file. It shows a
balance in the treasmy of 379 77,
with probable delinquency at end of
fiscal year, unless taxes are closely
collected, amounting to about $-175.
Several bills delinquent for lots in
the city cemetery were rcxorted by the
Sexton ; and the Sexton was instructed
hereafter not to dispose of any lots
without xay in advance by cash or
note. There is a disposition on tlit?
Xart of the board to remove bodies to
public grounds in the cemetery in case
the bills referred to are not speedily
adjusted. The council evinced tiie
disposition of fairness, but do not wish
to 'suffer imposition and loss upon a
matter so sacred as-the rights of prop
erty in cases of this nature.
Resolutions were adoxtcd instructing
the Street Commissioner to advertise
in the Astosian fifteen days for sealed
proposals for street inrprovements
ordered as per ordinances above.
i Such proposals to be oxened at a
meeting of the Committee on Streets
and Public Improvements at noon of
the 20th instant.
The matter of the improvement of
West-eighth street, on petition of
Messrs. Arrigoni and others, went over
ior consideration at a special meeting
at the call of the Mayor, at which
time an ordinance can be presented
for consideration, and at 11:10 o'clock
the council adjourned.
The joint resolutions introduced
in Congress on the Chinese, by Piper,
recite-that: "Whereas, It is alleged
that there are arriving at ports of the
United States great numbers of
foreigners of a class prohibited from
landing by the act of Congress appro
ved March 3, 1875, entitled, ' An act
supplementary to the acts in relation
to immigration ;' and whereas, it is
notorious that said act is not enforced
by the officers charged with its execu
tion ; therefore, Resolved, That the
Secretary of the Treasury be and he is
hereby instructed and directed to cause
to be enforced rigorously the provisions
of said act."
