MEETING OF THE
' The regular meeting of tbe Common
Council was held Monday evening,
with Mayor Blowers and four oounoil
men ptesent, Counoilraen Blauohar
and Builey and Recorder Nickelson
Tbe street committee recommended
the passage of an ordinance fixing
street grades, and tbe ordinance
passed its first reading. Tbe ordi
nance calls for terracing the streets on
all aide bill streets, to conform to the
contour of the land. No bard and
fast rule can be laid down, but each
street will have to be treated In ac
cordance with the lay of the ground.
Where there la a fall of several feet
between the north and south sides of
the street, it is proposed to terrace
the upper sidewalk above the street,
and also drop the walk on the lower
side, leaving level roadway in tbe
middle or tbe street. Were tbe walks
to come down level with the roadway,
it would necessitate a out iu some in
stances ot fifteen feet, requiring a re
taining wall along tbe property, and
l)e very expensive. Resides, it is
thought that the looks of the street
will be improved by the terrace gyg
tem. The sidewalks so terraced, will
be made to conform to the general
grade of the street, although on a
higher level on the upper side and
lower level on the lower.
A new dog ordinance was also Intro
duced aud passed its first reading.
The present dog ordinance is lather
weak in places, and the new one is
copied from the Portland ordinance,
which makes it unlawful for anyone to
keep a vicious dog, or one that is a
nuisance, and there must be a tax
paid on every dog owned and kept iu
the city limits, whether allowed to
run looso or not. The ordinance was
referred to tbe Judiciary committee,
to report at the next meeting. The
committee will report iu favor of tbe
new ordinance, and also In favor of
tbe present rate of tax.
