The (.'ount.il met in regular Kession
Motulay evening with nil members pre
sent. Tlic mayor called the meeting to order
and the e.lerk read the minutes of the last
meeting which were approved.
Mr. M. I). I'olk appeared and present
ed a proposition for the water company
in which the company proposed to lay
something over three miles of water mains
in different parts of the city with thirty
additional fire hydrant if the city would
pay $40 a year, rental, for each hydrant.
The company claimed that the laying of
these mains would give a much better cir
culation and increaso the pressure, besides
extending the water to within reach of
many who desired it. The new territory
over which the company wished to ex
tend their mains lay as follows: Begin
ning at Seventh street on Bey, thence
west four blocks, to Eleventh, thence
south to the main on Elm; one block on
Ninth, connecting the Dey and Courtland
street mains; seven blocks fron Elm to
Marble on Sixth street, connecting old
lines; three blocks on Vine from Third
to Sixth; on Pearl from Seventh to
Eleventh; on Ninth from Itock to Main,
four blocks; on Marble from Fifth to
Eleventh; on ltock from Tenth to Elev
enth, thence north on Eleventh to the old
line on Granite, two blocks; on Locust,
from Sixth to "Washington avenue, three
and a half blocks; on Fourth, from Oak
to Locust, one block; on Billings avenue
from Third to Fifth, over two blocks,
thence north on Fifth one block to the
old line on Rock; on Seventh, one block
south from Rock, thence east one block
Mr. Greusel thought that the laying of
the mains on Billings avenue would not
be of any benefit to the city aa very few
people lived along that avenue. Mr.
Polk replied that the water company had
very great faith in the immediate growth
and prosperity of Ptattsmouth and they
could lay the mains cheaper now than in
a few weeks as the company had their
men in the city and the material bought
with which to lay the mains, and if the
proposition was not accepted soon it
would be withdrawn, as the men were
.needed in Salem Ohio to erect works
there. The matter was referred to the
committe on fire and water.
Petitions for sidewalks on north Sixth
street, on east side of Fourth from Main
to Vine, were referred to the committee
on streets, alleys and bridges, with pow
er to act, as were also petitions for grad
ing at the intersection of Oak and Fourth
streets, the intersection of Sixth and
Pearl and the establishment of a grade on
Seyenth from Main north to the city lim
The Plattsmouth Land and Improve
ment Co. presented their former proposi
tion but considerably amended. It pro.
vides that the company will place all
grounds in the city limits at once as far
west as Ballou avenue (county road on
the road intersecting the fair grounds
cemetary) and to include the Richey, Es
tabroook, Vallery Egenbergcr and Pat
terson tracts of 200 acres, and in consid
eration of thus placing this amount of
land in the city limits, the city is to put
in water mains with necessary hydrants
along Mercer avenue, commencing at the
middle of the south line of the Richey
farm and running to the north line of the
Egenbcrger farm, and water to extend
from said mains east and run into Rural
park or Liyingston Heights, and a stream
to be made for the natural basin in the
park, said park to be fixed up in a man
ner to suit the city so that the basin will
hold six feet of water. The company al
so agrees to dedicate to the city said park
upon condition that the city make to the
company a title to the pest house proper
ty, and expend $1,200 for a park house
and such other annual sums as may be
necessary to make it an attractive pleas
ure resort. The company agreeing to cash
city warrants at par to the amount of$l,
200 if necessary to secure immediate
Mr. Greusel moved that the proposi
tion be not accented and Mr. McCallen
seconded, but upon motion of Mr. Week
bach an amendment passed referring the
proposition to the committee on parks.
The following bills were allowed: By

finance. The treasurer's report showed
a total cash in hand of $0,920.12, and
$400 in receivable notes. It was referred
to the committee on finance.
The licence committee reported favor
ably upon the application of F. G. Fricke
for druggists permit, and upon motion
the permit was ordered granted.
Mr. Veckbach introduced an ordnance
extending the fire limits from the first al
ley north of Main street to the first alley
uorth of Vine, and from the first alley
south of. Main to the first alley south of
Pearl and from the riyer to Eighth.
Mr. White moved the ordnance
ch-. nged an 1 made to run only to
centers of Vine and Pearl, triviiir a9
reasons that it Aould stop the building
of residences on these streets and hinder
their prosperity for a time. Mr. Weber
suggested another amendment by chang
ing the western boundary to Seventh,
and on motion of Mr. Dutton the change
was made. Mr Murphy moved the ordi
nance be given a second and third read
ing and put on final passage. Mr. Greu
sel moved to amend this motion by re
ferring it back to the judiciary committee
but the amendment was not accepted and
ordinance was passed as amended
A fine of $100 per day was made for
violation of this ordinance, aa long as a
frame structure was allowed to 6tand.
Mr. Greusel presented a proposition
for Mr. Fitzgerald, agreeing to take
$2,500 as payment for the bonds held
by him. He further said that the city
had paid upon said bonds, originally
only something over $7,000, some $15,500.
Estimated at simple interest in conformi
ty with the opinions of two city attor
neys, there was still due Mr. Fitzgerald
about $2,000. He was opposed to pay
ing more than was due, and moved that
the proposition be not accepted, and the
clerk be instructed to notify Mr. Fitzger
ald of the fact and the $2,000 for the
bonds, was awaiting his acceptance.
Motion passed, !
The "cow ordinace" was again brought
up and again laid over till the next regu
lar meeting; Messrs Wber and McCallen
being in favor of hearingit then as they
thought it was not right to put it off the
second time. i
The mayor announced his appoint
ments tor members of the board of pub
lic works as follows; For the three year
term, J. W. Johnson, chairman; for the
two year term, Fred Gorder; for the one
year term, D. Ilawkworth. The appoint
ments wrere confirmed.
The question arose as to the salaries of
the members of this committee. The
mayor read the law which provided the
chairman should not receive more than
$500 per year, and the other members
not more than $100. No salaries were
The city engineer made his report, as
near as he had it completed, for the cost
of the grading of Main from Sixth street
to Maiden Lane. The report was made
in seven divisions. The first and largest
division extended from Sixth to Ninth
streets, and required the removal of 37,
513 cubic yards of dirt, at an estimated
cost of 25 cents per yard. The cost here
was so much because there was no handy
place to put the dirt. Mr. Madole sug
gested that if the citv would sewer its
creeks there would be no trouble in dis
posing of this dirt and it could be used
to fill the creek banks to a great advan
tage. Mr. Madole said that some of the
remaining six divisions would need fill
ing, as they were below grade, and these
would afford a cheap and handy place
for the surplus dirt from those which
were above grade, while if the extra dirt
was not all needed in fetching up the low
places to grade, the owners of some of
the neighboa lots would be glad to
have the dirt placed on them, and on
this account the estimated cost for divis
ions 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 would be only
about 15 cents per cubic yard. He esti
mated the total amount of dirt to be re
moved at 60,000 cubic yards, at a cost of
$11,831. Mr. Madole had not finished
his estimate for the cost and work on
Main street from Fourteenth to Maiden
Lane, To get the sentiment of the coun
cil Mr. Murphy moved that Main street
be graded, and the discussion that ens
brought out the fact that Messrs. Mr
and Dutton were in favor of going

and White were in the dark a:

water was instructed to have the hook
and ladder trucks put in repair.
Mr. McVey complained of the condi
tion of the street near his property. The
matter wa9 referred to the committee on

On motion Mr. Madole was instructed
to survey Chicago avenue and find the
true lines and mark them. Council then

THE LATEST NEWS.

Pittsburg, Ph., May S). While Walter
W. Vrooman, a socialist lecturer, was
lecturing to a small audience in the Dia
mond hall in Allegheny City this evening
he described the American flag as "a rag
tied to a pole." The crowd grew angry
and threats of lynching went from mouth
to mouth, and amid the uproar a bric k
was thrown which struck a man standing
behind Vrooman. The speaker's friends
gathered around him, and just as the
angry crowd was closing in on him De
tectives Murphy and Donaldson arrived
and arrested Vrooman. The crowd fol
lowed to the lockup with cheers for the
detectives. Vrooman claims to be on his
way to New York to take an engagement
with Henry George.
THE ARIZONA SHAKE.
Tucson, Ariz., May 10, R, J, Kerr re
turned from a trip to Tresalamos, on the
San Pedro. lie reports an earthquake fis
sure not less than twenty-five miles long.
It extends a short distance below Benson,
to fifteen miles below Tresalamos. At the
surface the fissure varies in width from
six to eighteen inches. At places along
the crack, water burst forth, but afterword
ceased flowing. The crack In many places
is still open to a depth of several feet.
From Empire ranch, on Strita, seventy
miles south of here, the fissure is also
reported. Reliable information states
that when the earth opened water and
mud was thrown to a great height
Springs in that vicinity went dry. Two
others doubled their volume of water,
but on cessation of the disturbances, the
springs resumed their normal state.
INDIAN TKOUBLES EXPECTED.
Fort Benton, Mont., May 10. Indian
horse thieves, undoubtedly Canadian
Bloods, are operating along Teton river
and in the Sein river country. Men in
from Birsch Creek say there are several
war parties of Canadian Indians on this
side of the line and trouble may be ex
pected. THE StORY OV TnE MEXICAN CONVUL6IOXS
PROVES TERRIBLY TRUE.
Nogales, Ariz., May 7. Later accounts
received here tend to t-how that the re
ports of the volcano having broken out
in the Whetstone mountains are true. A
gentleman who arrived from Sonora yes
terday says there is strong evidence of
volcanic eruptions at a point about forty
miles southeast of Magdalena. and it is
confidently stated that one pekk is throw
ing out large volumes of smoke, accom
panied by streams of lava. The smoke
and fire can be distinctly seen from sev
eral points along the line of the Sonora
railroad. As far as can be ascertained
the volcano is in the Sierras Azul range.
From the appearance of the country and
the heavy earthquakes that have occured,
it is believed other volcanoes will break
forth in a few days.
Tucson, Ariz., May 7. Another violent
earthquake is reported in the San Jose
