Council Does Much Business
Provides for Flying
It was plainly evident from the com
munication presented to tho council
last night by Skinner and Bushmdl,
proprietors of the Balem Ferry, that
the whole proposition would find its
way into the courts before they would
relinquish their right to do business.
The -communication was addressed to
Mayor Keyes and the common council.
The point develotied was whether the
olice officers had any right to compel
Skinner and Bushnell to stop digging
on city property and whether tho city
engineer had a right to refuse thorn a
permit to excavate so they could lay a
dead man for their cable." The commu
nication went into derVil regarding the
procedure of th 'fetry controversy
They stated they have been operating
at a loss so far.
Salem will have band music and vo
cal music during the coining spring and
summer. At the meeting last night the

mitted by the band. The other was
$1(S83 for 10 concerts. Both propositions

On account of the fact that Y. J.
Fry is not the only one who would be
affected by a widening by seven feet
of the pavement on the west lino of
Church street, and because other prop
erty owners could enjoin the improve
ment, City Attorney Maey reported to
the council that he did not deem it
wise to enter into a contract with Mr.
Fry in that regard.
Four Streets Dropped
On account of remonstrances against
improvement of Luther, Fir, Fairmount
and Superior streets, presented by
Councilman Elliott, it was decided to
cease action ou thuse streets.
Property- owners along the fair
grounds road opposed to paying as
sessments on the improvements made
tiled remonstrances with the city coun
cil. They were referred to the city at
torney. The , following items were referred
to the street committee:
Bids for furnishing the city with
3000 barrels of Portland cement; bids
for five sets of street signs; and bids
to furnish paving material for the city.
