The City contributed about 7,000 he said to that fund and he thought the time had come for the City to Lay in a claim for about $4 too of that amount. Or. Bokop moved that the finance committee president of the Council Aud solicitor meet the county commissioners and see what could be done. Or. Bokop spoke of lights placed at Railroad Crossings and thought some move should be made to collect the Cost of lighting from the railway companies. The solicitor thought an ordinance should be passed providing for the collection of the amounts due fur these lights. Solicitor was instructed to investigate what is necessary and report at next meeting. Or. Anderson moved that the g. A r. Be permitted to use the City Hall on saturday evenings As a training place of boys brigade. Or. Bokop thought the wishes of the fire boys should be consulted in the premises though he did not know there would be any objection if the marching did not injure the floor for dancing. John Widmer and Perry e. Helpman As a committee from Bishop Post appeared and made a plea for the use of the Hall. Or. Kniss said he understood a Resolution had been adopted some time in the past that prohibited the use of the Hall by outside parties and if that was True the Resolution would have to be rescinded before the request could be granted. No such Resolution could be found by the clerk. Messes. Widmer and Helpman pledged themselves that the Hall would be kept in order. Or. Bokop moved that the matter be referred to the fire committee to report at next meeting. Motion carried. Or. Kniss reported that pipes in Sec Ond Ward building were Fri in up matter left in hands of committee on Public grounds and buildings. Or. Bokop following the suggestion of the Republican express thought he governor at the water works should be investigated. The water in the stand pipe he said was allowed to run Down very Low and As it was a very important matter to the Public he drought it should be in Vestiga de or. Kahlo moved that the matter be referred to the fire committee. In the Oie Cussion that followed the May or and fire chief Spring took part. It was shown that the pressure on the Mains frequently ran Down As Low As is pounds while under the contract with the City it should not go Bilow forty pounds. It was also developed that some of the leading property owners were stirred up Over this matter and that the City should have the kind of water service it paid for. Ordinance to appropriate property for the purpose of opening an Alley Between Harrison and Kintner streets passed second Reading. A memorial protesting against proposed Alley was read and left on the table. M r. Kniss moved that bidders on Holgate Avenue Bonds in the sum of $200 that they would take same if awarded the bid also that contractor who secured work should give Bond in a sum equal to Cost of sewer for the there is much comment Over the failure of the City Council to take any action relative to the request of the g. A. R. Men to use the City Hall As a training place for the boys brigade one night in the week. The plea has been made that the members of the fire department might object but chief Spring and assistant chief Mccarty have stated very plainly that the department bad no objections to tbe.u8e of the Hall by the boys. The committee appointed by Bishop Post to wait upon the Council John Widener and p. E. Helpman explained that the brigade was under compte teat instructors and pledged themselves that the Hall would be kept clean. But that did not seem to satisfy the majority of the City a a dads and they have reared Back in the breaching with such Force that it is doubtful about the question Ever being called up again. It is claimed now that the a masterly inactive Eye of the Council in this matter is due to the janitor of the City building that he protested and that the request Foi the us of the Hall was shelved at his instance. As he is one of the most prominent democratic leaders in the City there May be some truth in the Rumor. But that does not excuse the Council. It is the custodian of the City Hall it opens the doors to Farmers institutes to democratic caucuses and to other Public meetings and Why not to the boys brigade this brigade is made up of some of the brightest lads in the City tons of taxpayers. In Chicago some fifty of these Compani s have been organized Aud in a Short time that number will be doubled the boys while in the training room Are subjected to military discipline. A months work under competent instructors transforms the stoop shouldered ambling boy and he comes onto the streets with the Bear do and tread of a Cartier the moral effect of such training is Good. The boy is treated kindly and soon earns to pay due respect to his Supe rior8. This work tends to develop his physical forces and improve his health. If there were a dozen such brigades instead of one it would be a Good thing for the youth of the City. Taking that View of the Case it would appear like it was Abr it time for the Council to act with some sense and not allow itself to be dictated to and bossed around by a few Small bore politicians and stipend Aries of the municipality. The g. A. It. Post Mem hers of which have charge of the brigade have requested the use of the Hall one night in the week As a training place Aud there should be enough manliness in the majority of the Council to answer yes or no. The action of Connell in this matter not strictly according to Hoyle. The City Council deserves an unmerciful scoring for its failure to act promptly in the matter of paved streets in this City or rather its failure to take the necessary Steps to make collections of assessments due from property abutting the line of improvement. There has been Nogoa Sharp enough to Pierce its hide and it has moved in this matter like a stall fed of. The action of some of the councilmen was rather suggestive that they were determined to throw the bulk of the Cost of the paved streets upon All of the tax payers regardless of the benefits they might derive from the improvement. That would have been a pure and unadulterated outrage. When the peo pie of South Clinton Street went into court and aet up the claim that $2 50 per front foot was All they should be assessed the City sit Supi Nely by without taking any action what Ever the result was that the South Clinton Street people took judgement by default and not More than $2 50 per front foot can be collected from them. They Aie not to blame for wanting to scale the Cost Down As Low As possible but there is no excuse for the Council allowing any share of their assessments being saddled on to tax payers who had no interest in the improvement of the Street Only As it benefits the City in a general Way. The failure of the Council to act in that matter could Only have occurred through ignorance Gross carelessness or with a purpose to by aug about what is now proposed that is to scale Down the assessments along All the paved streets to meet those of the people on North Clinton Street who had theirs fixed by the courts. This plan if carried out will throw at least half of the Cost of the paved streets upon ail the tax payers. It is something that was never contemplated when the question of paving streets was first sprung it is something the Council has no right to to now that the improvement in consummated and is a proceeding that should not be allowed to go Uchal i edged there May be members who do not fully understand the situation and if there Are they should study it. It is an unheard of proceeding that any citizen should go into court and by default of the City fix up a Standard of assessments of. All the work that has been done upon the streets. The enhancement in value of property abutting the improved streets will equal in 95 per cent of the cases the Cost of improvement and that the Council should now seek to throw half the coat of the improvement upon All of the tax payers is not fair equitable or business like. To do this it will be necessary for the Council to repudiate its own legislative acts. We do not care to criticise Council unjustly but we do insist that the record it has made in Tho matter is unsavoury unless some one has been using it to shift an annoying Load of taxation to the shoulders of some one else. In that Case harsher term would be applicable. The members of Council who Are aspiring for further honors should Luton their thinking Caps and tackle this subject in dead Earnest. It is a big question and is liable to make Rome howl when the people fully understand it. Were issued not to build a Bridge but to help Faurot out of a Hole.

The testimony before the grand jury was not considered Strong enough to justify an indictment. One thousand cats. An advertisement that converted a a merchant and lifted him out of an old rut a Well known business Man in an Ohio town had very Little Faith in advertisements. He had a fair Trade but it was not what it ought to have been and he knew it. But he apparently did not know the cause. One Day while talking to a newspaper Man who had solicited an advertisement he insisted that no one read them and that it was Only a waste of Money. He finally agreed that if it could be demonstrated to Bim that advertisements were read he would contract for a column of space for one year. The Edi Tor returned to his office and wrote the following notice wanted. One thousand cats regardless of age color or sex. Inquire at the dry goods store of d ii. This notice was set in nonpareil Type and buried among a lot of and vertisement8 on the eighth Page of the paper. Only one copy containing the notice was printed and that in due time found its Way to the merchant it had not been in his hands ten minutes until he found the cat notice.

Yor tride who is Exa Ain id the books in the treasurers and auditors offices in Paulding county is reported by the Paulding Republican As saying that in All his Sipaila work he has never found such a mixed up condition of affairs or so meaningless a set of county records. It seems strange that the Public affairs should be All wed to get into such a mess As was found in Defiance and now turns up in Paulding county.
