seconded by 31r. "SVcblcr the pe

A petition avu.s then presentee! asking
that Herman Smidt be appointed super
visor of tho Fewer work about to bo done.
Mr. (Jreuscl thought the city had enough
men employed to get tho work properly
done, and Mr. Murphy proposed to call
another bond election for the purpose of
paying the cdiieers. A motion granting
the prayer of the petition was lost.
The finance committee reported that
they hael agreed with the Jourwil com
pany to pay only oue half tlieir bills until
tlieir imlebtedness to Ihe city en account
of overpayment was settled. The fol
lowing bills were allowed. Journal

returned to :ul for not being albe to pay
tlieir lines and six paid their anes raid
were elischarged. The lines collected
ammounted to $15. Tho report was re
ferred to the police committee.
The jndieiary committee presented a.i
ordinance extending the city limits to
take in the Ya'deiy 10, Walker 10, Rieh
ey -0 and other ground to tho iU.uuounl
of 1 SO acres. The ordinance was road
the sect lid and third times and pas.-,cd
under f-uspertshui of tlie n.les.
I". Huttoa said ee.me mrangr uv-nt
cugl.t to lie tuaile by which the street
eemmissioner could pay his men every
week, e.s seine of them were fiuitting him
l.-eeaue they had to wait so long for their
piy. It was stiggested that tiie street
commis: ioner pay his men with poll tax
money received by him and take their
warrants and draw the money and pay
the poll tax money to the treasurer at
one time but nothing definite was done.
It was also suggested that the treasurer
by instructed to honor the name of the
commissioner without ihst presenting
tlie bill to the council for their approval,
but the city attorney said the law would
probably not uphold them in such a
movement, and the question was dropped.
Mr. Greu.-cl moved that the committee
on fire ar.d water be instructed to buy
two water troughs to cost not over $50
each. Motion passed.
The city engineer gave the estimated
cot of graning Fail field hill. The cost
to bring tlie sidewalks and rood to grade
at iOctd per cubic yard wr.s $-2,240.
A lively discussion then took place as
to the acceptance of the South Park prop
erty and settled upon laying of the water
mains from Cid street up Rillings and
Lincoln Ave. to the park. Mr. Murphy
was strongly in favor of accepting
the park and making the required im
provements, lie said the laying of the
m litis would give fire protection to the
shops anel a l::rgo number of residences,
and best of all the city would have a
nice park in town, which, in a few years
could not be obtained at almost any price.
Mr. G rcusel saiel he was not interested in
the park but was interested in protection
for the shops, and moved the water com
pany be authorized to lay mains past the
shops 3200 feet. Altera long di-cus-:
sion it was decided to lay 2-100 feet and
have the committee on lire see if it
would pay to lay the extra b!;0 feet.
The board of public works reported
that pursuant te instructions they hael
opened the bids for -eweraje la.t Friday
and let the job to Chailes Harris of this
city, and that last eveniug Mr. Ilaaris
h id given a written statement to the ef
fect that he had miscalculated and could
not fulfill his contract. Oj motion of
Mr, Greu-el the report of the committee
was referred back anel they w ere request
to report on the next two best bids this
Mr. Button presented the following'
rtsalution which was adopted.
JleioIu?i.l, that the committee on streets,
alleys and bridges bo and they arehere'oy
instrtu ted to open bridges and grade the
right if way given by the Plattsmouth
Laud Improvement Co. for a street
west from Maiden Lane to the south east
corner of tin; fair ground.-: to coimoit
v i I ! i the road opened by the county and
that tlie same be put in condition for
travel by fair time.
Mr. Haws, representing an Omaha Sioux
Falls granite firm, had circulated a peti
tion vr.-terday which favored Sioux Falls
granite. Ho said his company would
give a good bond and lay the pavement
in thirty days fter the letting of tin?
contract. Cn motion of Mr. McCalhn
further consideration of the subject was
left till this evening.
The spec ial ciminitteo on printing re
ported tlie contract for the city ordi
nances awarded to M-srs Sherman A
Cutwiight of the Journal. The report
The committee appointed to find out
the pavement desired by the Main street
property owners reported in favor of
cedar block's. Rut the committee failed
to work in harmony and Mr. Murphy was
the one who made tlie re port. He also
hael a letl'T from John Fitzgerald of
Lincoln, stating that cedar block was
bciug used quite extensively in Lincoln
and recommended it for Plattsmouth.
As the report was given at the consent of
only one of the coinmittea it was dropped.
Mr. Jones complain 'd that the road to
hi-, house was bad and he had about
21 in poll tax to work out on it but it
wasn't enough. On motion of Air. Dut
tow $25 of the road fund was ordered
drawn to aiel the grading of the street
i.i n is ilth between Oak and Vine.
Council nvt last eveningin regular ad
journed i-ession, with a full board, for
the purptssc of considi ring a complete
report of tho board of public works on
the bids r the or. -true tion of a system
of sew;, l ege for Plal Ismouth, and also
ft of til
eial committee ap
point-d to can v.. s Main street propeily
owners to get their preference for paving.
Tiie bo.-rd of public works reported
V. h:l had the lowest
bid had reported hims If unable to carry
the work :hrou:.h. Tie- bid of McMae
ken ee. Kivhlcr, of Plattsmouth, was next;
Thompson Cc Delaney, of Omaha, were
third; the other bids the board reported
as not acceptable on account of deficien
cies or t; .-er-e.-tiination. The board also
advi-ed the letting of the contract to the
lowest bidder, but not till satisfactory
arrang ments hael been made for the dis-po.-al
the bond-;, and that the bidder
file a good $15,000 bond.
Mr Weber moved the acceptance of the
report and the letting of the contract to
the lowest bideler provided he file a good
and sufficient bond. Mr. Jones seconded.
In their report the board also stated
that the bid of Thompson & I) elm-icy was
above the surveyor's estimate on the 5 tit
sewer, and Mr. Greuscl asked the city at
torney if that diel not kill the bid. Mr.
Clark replied that if the bkl was above
the estimate the work could not be let,
but if the part was immaterial it
would probably not injure the bid, but if
it was a principal part as it was in this
case it was important. After consider
able talk and making of motions, etc.,
Mr. Greusel asked if the retiring of a part
ner from a firm after the making of a
bid, destroyed the bid, anel was informed
that it did. (It appears that Krolder had
se.id something about withdrawing his
name, but did not do so.) Mr. Greusel
then moved that the board of public
works be instructed to reject any and all
bids and be authorized to re-ad vcrti-e
for uew bids for the construction of
storm water sewerage, all biels to be ac
companied by a certified check for $1,000.
The motion carried.
A very lively discussion then ensued
between Yfeber, Murphy, Wcckbach anel
Frank Carrutn about the petition asking
for cedar block pavement, and the ques
tion was finally dropped by tlie consieler-
ation of the report of the special commit
tee I.e. ing iiideiinately postponed, and
a motion from Mr. Greusel to pave the
1st paving district with Sioux Falls gran
ite carried, Murphy refusing to vote.
The treasurers report showed $T.y3G.1l
in money, and $400 in collectable bills
in his haiuls. The report was referred to
the nuance committee.
A g: n. ral paving talk wag theu in
dulged in by Mr. Riley, of Omaha and
Mr. Wetkbach then produced an oili
nance requiring the curbing of Main
street which was read a second and third
time and adopted.
