The city council pulled off its
semi-monthly s h o w Tuesday
night. The congregation was not
quite so large as usual. Mayor
Hubbard, and councilmen Hol-
lowell, Teal, Grier, Hopkins and
Titus were present. Brown had

granted changing the license

The question of approving Stev
en’s contract for grading and
rocking certain streets was
brought up again. The question
was discussed at some length,
objections being made that the
ordinance was not complied with
when the contractor was allowed
to put river gravel on instead of
No. 3 crushed rock as the ordi
nance called for. The curb on
Third street was also reported to
be in a crumbling condition and
required props to keep iUn place.
Vote was taken which resulted in
thrfce for accepting and two
against. It was urged that if the
matter went into court that this
division would work against the
city in forcing ihe property
owners to pay the assessment
and Grier changed his vote and
voted against the acceptance and
the motion was declared lost. A
motion was then made to accept
all the work except the curb on

was, rather an unusual and open
way of handling such propositions
and the council were up in the
air, so to speak. Mayor Hubbard
told the committee that this was
a state law and that the council
had no authority to act in the
matter even were they so dispos
Councilman Hollowell told the
council that he had something to
spring on them. He said that
there was an unopened street
near the school house that the
children had to use, that was a
disgrace to a civilized community.
That it was dangerous to pass
over. A motion was then made
to begin condemnation proceed
ings against all the property
along this street in order that the
city could have it improved. The
council then adjourned, “ peace
and good will prevailing.”

The war tax has driven them

Hereafter, under provisions of
the war-tax, all gum must be sold
from the open box and the box
must not be destroyed until after
the last piece has been sold.
As the nature of the machines
requires that the gum be entered
into them without the box, further
use of machines would constitute
a violation of the Federal law.
