City Lost Case otk Slim

the Supreme Court in the Sixth
Street case has arrived and meat of
the decision is hat the city had not
given sufficient notice in the hct
that the specifications of the work
to be done were not sufficient to

improvement to be made.' In Fri
day's Recorder we stated that the
notices had not been properly post

under the old charter it was not
necessaiy to post notices, but the
insufficient notice came from the
facts above stated, and by this the
Supreme Cqurt held that because
of insufficient notice the council had
failed to gain jurisdiction to make
