Council Doings.
Council met last night in regular ses
sion, Mr. McCallen being absent. The
minutes of the two previous meetings
were read and approved.
Mayor Simpson said he would depart
from the regular order of business, for
the evening and calLd for the report of
the board of public works in regard to
the sewerage bids.
Mr. J. W. Johnson, chairman of the
board of public work, gave the report,
which advised the accepting of the bid
of Shaw, Muihollan & Downing, of Kan
sas City, and that the firm file a good
bond to the untount of $15,000.
Murphy moved to accept the report
and recommendations. Considerable
discussion then cusued which was finally
ended by the adoption of the following
resolutions, presented by Mr. Murphy.
Jli soloed, that the report of the board
of public works ben reived and adopted,
and contract be entered into when (sew
erage) bonds arc sold.
Dutton then moved the mayor and a
special committee be authorized to nego
tiate the bonds in Plattsmouth, Omaha,
or elsewhere, and named, with Mayor
Simpson, Messrs Week back and Murphy
as the committee. The motion passed.
Mr. Johnson then advised the council
to place a limit to the time for the com
pletion of the system after the entering
of the contract. A motion from Jones to
make it four working months passed,
and Mr. W. S. Wise, speaking for the
firm, said the time would be agreeable.
The bond of the firm of S. M. & D.
was then lead. It was for 15,000 and
bore the names of C. II. Parmelc and J.
M. Patterson as securities. The bond
was accepted.
The mayor called attention to the time
and money that had been- expended in
going thi3 far with the sewer preparations
and recommended the employing of an
experienced engineer to oversee the work
and firm of Kosewater & Chisty were,
mentioned. Mr. Chisty, who was present,
said it was not necessary to enter into a
contract with the engineer till the con
tract for the construction of the sewerage
was drawn.
A petition was then presented from
residents near the corner of Oak and 3rd
streets. It sceins that about a week ago
M. McGuire, who lives on the corner of
Oak and 3rd, circulated a petition asking
that Oak and 3rd streets be graded at
their intersection. The petition was
given to the street commissioner, M.
Morgan, and he proceeded with the work
which was to be paid for by the poll tax
of the petitioners. The grade as petition
ed for would cut 3rd street badly, and
expose the water pipes to frost and the
chairman of the committee on streets
alleys and bridges saw fit to stop tho
work. The petition presented asked
that the work be continued. After con
siderable discussion the city surveyor was
instructed to examine the matter and see
if the grading was proper.
A petition was presented asking the
council to establish an ordinance for the
protection of life and property from
steam boiler explosions, by appointing a
man to examine all engineers, who have
charge of boilers under power. The pe
tition was granted.
A petition from several of our leading
merchants asking that the law in reference
to working on Sunday and running
stores etc, be enforced, was placed on
