request for an extension o f time
upon their contract for paving,
asking until May 1, in which to
complete the paving of two
blocks on First Avenne South,
which had been delayed owing to
the rain and the slowness of the
railroad Company, whose tracks
occupy the thoroughfare, in rais
ing the grade. This was spoken
upon favorably but referred to
the city attorney for an opinion
as to the effect it would have
upon the contract and bond.
A petition from the local
grange requesting the council to
take action seeking to safe-guard
the young girls of the city from
undesirable characters was re
ferred to the vice commission.
The Washington -Oregon Corpor
ation. through its representative,
C. W. H^ill, presented a propo
sition for. the taking over of the
city lighting plant, which was
tabled with but slight discussion.
It was arranged at this meet
ing for the city to keep in re

of by whom erected.
