WILL ASIC COUNCIL TO
CREATE PAVING DISTRICT
The directors of the Chamber or
Commerce held a meeting last evening
and decided to take the initiative steps
toward street paving. To push tills j
matter to a final completion a com
mittee composed of E. P. Seeberger,
W. H. McDonald, V, It. Maloney and'
O. B. Eler was appointed, and the first
step that will probably be taken will'
be to petition the council to vote bonds
for paving the street and alley inter
sections, and at the samo time ask tho
council to create a paving district. I
This district, as proposed, would in
clude Dewey and Locust streets from
Front to Third, and Front, Sixth, Fifth, '
Fourth and Third from Pine to Lo-1
cust. The total cost of this work
would be in the neighborhood of nine- (
ty "thousand dollars, about twenty
thousand of which would bo borne by
tho city and tho remainder by tho own
ers of property abutting on the streets
Under the new law a potltlon for a
paving district is not necessary. The
council can create a district, and un
less a remonstrance Is filed by per
sons owning more than one half of the
total feet frontage the district stands.
The directors also endorsed the sec
retary's campaign for membership to
the organization, and' adopted a grad
uated scale of membership dues. Bus
iness and professional men and men
who own property in the business dis
trict will pay annual dues of ten dol
lars; owners of residence property
five dollars; those who do not own
property and also farmers two dol
lars. Other matters pertaining to roads,
drainage and railroads were consider
ed, and several committees appointed
- to look after these matters.

There is no question but that tho re

tho pale of tho church several hun
dred people and surrounded them with

fessed christians who had become luke
warm, and the Influence for good has
gone beyond those directly Interested
