opinions expressed by members of
the city council Monday evening.
Two factors enter into opening of
the tank this season, one the matter
of ample water supply and the
other the importance of obtaining
a competent supervisor. One thing '

the west end of May street and the
length of Gale street was ratified,
as were several matters pertaining
to leasing and sale of certain par
