Another Damage Suit. George A. Ballard, of Seattle, pre inted a written, claim to the council r the sum for personal in- ries he claims to have received by lling into an opeu sewer trench, allard ia a tile layer and worked on le Union Loan Trust company's uilding. He claims that on thejaven- ig of April 4th he fell into an unguard- d trench on Tower Avenue one block outh of the hall. He claims that he muscles oi his back were sorely reached and that he received internal njuries. It is possible that Ballurd lade a mistake in bia location of tho itch, as tlie sewer does not cross the venue south of the city hall, but does bout the same distance north. JSo one present at the council meeting seemed 0 know anything about a man falling nto the sewer, BO the matter was re- jrred to the sewer committee and city attorney. The bond filed by the con- tractors before they commenced work on the construction of the sewer will hold the city harmless in case of a damage suit. To Observe Decoration Day. A communication from the local post of the (j. A. R. was presented to tlie council asking that body to take some actiou for the observance of Decoration day. The communication stated that ,he old soldiers were becoming too old and feeble to take the initiative iu the jbservance of the day. The council as 1 body, did not feel able to undertake ,he matter, but Mayor Miller appointed Councilman Kreaa, who himself is an old aoldier, and Councilmen lilley and Kent aa a committee to endeavor to get some other organization to take the matter in hand. It ia auid that the Eagles might be induced to aid iu the >roper observance ol the day. Odd fellows Want Use of Street. The Odd Fellows asked for permission :o use a part of Main street aud the jlley between Tower Avenue aud Pearl (oel atreet for the purpose of piling building guttered. material during the construction of their two-story brick or stone building Main street. The request was granted. The Union Loan Trust company was also granted permission to use three feet off Magnolia atreet and feet off the alley in the rear of the building for light area purposes. Many Bllli Allowed. The regular monthly bills for April had been previously audited Dy tlie finance committee and were ordered paid by the council. Amonc them wuu one for iu favor of the Contralia Electric Power company for power. City Report. Marshal Clark" presented his leport or the month of April. During that me he made seventeen arrests and cul- ected fines to the amount ol City alao presented his report tating what he had done during tlie month. Special Election to be Called. An ordinance calling lor a special lection to be held on June 2nd, for the inrpoae of issuing bonds to be used for lurohasing an electric light plant .utroduced and passed its firm reading. 1'he ordinance provides that bonda be ssued in the sum of A special and to be called "The Electric Light ?und" it to be created. The bonds are o be paid only from the revenue of the >lant after the running eipensea are jaid: Tho bonds are not to constitute n against the city as a bul against the. "Electric Light Fund': only. Bicyclists Beware.. Complaint has been made on sovera occasions by citizens of bicyclists-ridini on the sidewalks contrary to ordinance The council seemed to think that tb printed notices were not heeded as the; Iht u.nulitl will In la strnctedto arrest the offenders in the future. Big Contract Let. Tuesday evening was the time set for opening the bids (or tho grading of the ctreets and building sidewalks in Local Improvement District No. 8. Only two bids were filed. Davis i Mills offered to do the work for and Allred A .lames bid f'JO.OOO. Tho city engineers' estimate was The first named company bid cents Por lineal foot for the construction of the sidewalks and the other company bid 28 cents for this part of tho work. There will he in all about linral feet of walk to. he built. Councilman Kent moved that tlie contract ho awarded to Davis Mills and Tilley seconded him. The clerk called the roll and all the eouncilmen except Senrs voted yea Scara thought that the bid was too hiili and paid that a man had offered to build a walk for him for 14 cents per lineal foot. Williams, who in a lumber- man, said thd .planks could not bo pur chased for that amount. Ponneveld then said that perhaps the matter had been decided too hastily and moved :that the quebiion bn reconsidered Sears seconded this motion and it was carried unanimouoly. .The proposition was then discussed at lenuth. Seam maintained that the price was too hiirh and wanted to re-advertise for bids. The rest finally decided that the bid was fair and the question was called for again. The vote resulted the Fame as nn the first ballot, and at the close Sears eaid that the contract price was tSOOO.ton high. Carr was almost per- suaded that the contract wab rather expensive, hut when it came to a show- down he, too, voted "yes." Mr. Mill said that he would build concrete walka for any who desired them for cents per lineal foot. Property owners who have already had this work done paid 75 nenta for cement walks.
