Aid Adams here stated that in connection with the staking of the car barns the engineer's department made six irips in order to accomplish the work. Fol lowing this a general, discussion took place regarding the method of keep- ing, the engineering department ac- counts. '-It was .the opinion of the council that-some-.more efficient thod be found for itemizing the ex- penditures made: in order that an in- telligent understanding might be rived at. Every" civic department should have cleai and complete i e- ports jihoiunjr and how all monies been expended Aid Vd 'thoughtr-the-council revealed a slight weakness m their handling of the city's affairs. A- letter 'was read 'rom the .engineer's department stat- in? that the r expenditure .in this de- partment from August -1911 to June last was J600.000, but no objection was taken to Aid. Williamson was anxious t hair1 an effective tion- he desired whereby any defects in the city's management be remedied without loss of time "The cruv of the whole discussion appeared to point to the inefficiency of certain civic of their duties The council felt that perhaps after, all the-- wisest: course would be to bring all the heads of the due departments together and cleai 'the air of all misconceptions A Special Meeting Aid Skeiih suggested calling a spec- iai meeting1, of the; council for that purpose. The council placed itself on record, as being anxious .to put the civic administration of .the city on a sound'business basis. Regarding the purchasing department, the mayor fa vored the idea, of having only one pur- chasing agent who would have entire control of all materials purchased for the city's .nee. The city engineer's re-appointment came up but nothing was done. A The upshot of the'discussion regard- ing' the management of the city's af- fairs resulted in the carrying of be ciled at an early date at which a the heads of the various civic merits- would be asked to be prww in order to go thoroughly Into cor plaints which' have recently come 1 tight. The council appears deter rail ed to hide nothing seeme anxiou lo have the city's administration pi on a solid foundation, and in full cord with the citizens' wishes; L.iitB Critlo.ud Aid.

Man names had for some reason been lef off. the list, and Aid. had hi little say. along this line and did forget to add that several peopl whom he knew and who paid bar earned money in taxes- had tbei names left out also. The co-mplfatio of the assessment roll, had been worked a little loosely City Clerk Robinson explained a great many of the namer on tb< voters' lists had been taken from thi Index of the essment roll which might possibly have cAiued fects. assessor was reipon Bible for thie and steos will be-taken to nee that the matter is reined without delay.
