At a special meeting of the city
council Monday evening, called for
the purpose of opening bids for the
Spurgeon slreet improvements, Coun-
cilmen L. H. Hazard and E. E.
Johnson resigned.
Both gave as
their reasons for so doing that th y
were too busy with their own ; f-
fairs to give the neoessary time r -
quired by the city.
As these two council men were
the only ones whose terms of office
did not expire this spring, it ne­
cessitates the election of an entir-
new council next month.
The terms of Anderson. I l,
Kistner and Morrison expire at the
next regular meeting. It is not now
known whether any of these gentle­
men will be candidates for election
or hot.
A. W. Kelley announces
his candidacy for the office of city
recorder again.
At the meeting Monday night suf­
ficient opposition to the p* ins of
improvements for Spurgeon street
developed to cause the council to
adopt an ordinance repealing the
one recently passed. The principal
objection of the residents of that
section was on the grades estab­
lished and the fill ia the gulch that
crosses the street. Instead of hav­
ing a 16-foct roadway acioss thu
latter and board walks on the side,
they want the road bulklieaded and
filled the entire width, so that ce­
ment walks can be laid the same as
along the balance of the street.

appointed for the city election, on
May 8th.
