All members present except

. petition signed by K. S. Harstow,
Win. Hall mice unrl twenty others,
asking that Iloldrege street be
opened from' Ninth Htreet to Hill
ings avenue; after considerable lis
cussion the matter wan ordered in
vestigated by Messrs. Gutsche anl
Ilaar with a view to jrantiiitf the
prayer of the petitioners.
A petition for Hidewalk nn Vine
Street from Seventli to KihtR streetn
nnd to fix' newer; ijned by John
Jtauer and Keveral other, was grant
ed and work whh onleretl done.
Salisbury railed attention to the
Condition of a If aim on South Sixth
Btreet, where Mr. T. Clark h;id built
Beveral liouneH and made valuable
improvements, expecting the city to
open the Btreet which had not been
done. On motion of Hemple a upe
cial committee consirttinj of Menur.
Hemple, Salibury and Larson wen:
appointed to nee what termH could
be made with the property owiuth
for the immediate opening- of the
street and reiort to council.
The city marshaH'H report for the
month of February showed receipt
of $1, collected a tines. The police
judge's report showed the same
thin witli a receipt from the city
treasurer for a like amount append
ed to hirt report.
The report of the .city treasurer
wan then read, which showed a iui
ballance in many "of .the funds.

city treasurer outside of school

It seems A. X. Sullivan filed anew
Claim with the clerk for $500 for his
services as attorney in the bond
case, which was read, and in the us
ual cotwrse of business referred to
the linSmce committee. Messrs.
Salsbury and Hemple of that com
mittee reported at once in favor of
its beiJijf allowed; this opened the
ball for a tight. Gutsche vigorously
opposed the allowance of the claim
because it was exorbitant, and in re
ply to the claim that Mr. Sullivan
'had done much for the city, he re
marked sarcastically that there were
too many patriots" for. revenue in
this town and that if this bill were
allowed this would not be the end
of it either. Ureckenfeld and Larson
warmly espoused Gutsche's argu
ment of the matter, while Salisbury
thought the time and work of Mr.
Sullivan was well worth $500 and it
was not right to cut the bill down,
as he knew it would be the only one
the council would have to pay. Mr.
Salisbury spoke highl3' of Mr. Sulli
van and made a strong argument
in favor of his proposition. A claim
of J. 1$. Strode for $: 5 . was
withdrawn from the hands of
the city clerk y Mr. Strong. A
vote being taken, the report of the
finance committee was not adopted,
all members voting 110 except Salis
bury ami Hemple. Mr. Jones said
he thought this claim ought to be
settled, ami as Mr. Sullivan had re
ceived $2i K already as part payment
for services, he moved that be
allowed in full of claim; Urecken
feld moved to amend by making
the amount $250 in full of claim.
On vote being taken. Messrs.
Gutsche, llagar. Larson. Hemple,
Jones and Ureckenfeld voted in the
affirmative. Salisbury voting no.
thus settling a claim that has been
before the council for several ses
sions. The claim of Mr. alker for dam
ages by water at lire some time ago
w7is refused, whereupon Larson
tfok occasion to dre up the tire
department for lack of discipline
and demanded that it have a chief
that could enforce discipline. Lar
sons speech aroused Ureckenfeld
and he arose and in eloquent tones
defended the tire department a be
ing a good one, and that owing to
the dense smoke they did just as
any other tire department would
have done under similar circum
stances. As an oratorical etfort.
Hreckenfeld's speech was a gem and
won hf -ii many encomiums from
those who heard him. Gutsche got
in some of his sledge-hammer lu hs
at the department, having seen
them at the livers lire, ne s.o.i
there was some -good material in
the department, but there were too
many bummers and absolutely no
discipline, and that three good men
would do more than the whole de
partment has so far as he knew ever
accomplished at a tire. Mr. Gutsche
ottered the following resolution,
which on a ruling from the mayor
that it would effect nothing, as on
ly an ordinance could change the
law. it was voted down:
Whereas, It in a matter of great
importance that the city
should have at all times an efficient
and well drilled fire department,
therefore be it
"RErfOLVKl. That the committee
on lire and water be and they are
hereby instructed to reorganize our
present volunteer department upon
the following lines:
"The tire department shall con
sist of twenly-four men, exclusive of
the chief and his assistant.
"The officers of IOf companies

hook and ladder companies, captain
"The chief and assistant-chief sh: 11

continued by the council and shall
receive $100 and $75 for their services
"Salaries of captain, pipem in. and
lieutenants shall be 40 cents per

"The committee on tire and water
shall make suitable arrangements

shall also make such rules
and ' regulations for the gov
ernment of the department as they
may from time to time deem ad
visable." The claim of C. W. Holmes for
$1.50 referred back to police com
mittee. The following bills were then al

Louisville has given up the fight
on the county seat. I'lattsmouth,
through her representative. Hon. F.
E. White, is reported to have agreed
with his consort, Mr. Shryock. to leg
a bill through the legislature lo
cating an intermediate penitentiary
at Louisville. We shall await the
result and see if this pair of ducks
can foist another institution on the
state and locate it where they
It will be interesting to know how
much of the $10,000 the purchase
price of the Stout castle has been
furnished by I'lattsmouth in con
sideration of the dropping of the
county seat contest by Louisville.
If the services of Mr. White to the
scheme is all they donate, they have
made a good bargain, while Louis
ville will be holding the bag for the
snap" that fails to fall that way.
The voters of Cass county who
have put their names to a petition
on two different occasions for the
purpose of locating the county seat
at Louisville are not feeling very
happy at the thought of beingmade
a cat's paw in that !:i:iu! of n way,
and will he rather shy in the"future
in being, duped that way again. A
large majority of the people want
the scat of government changed for
the benefit 'of the masses. They still
feel like trying again to secure jus
tice. Weeping Water Kagle.
The true feeling that exists in
Weeping Water is pretty clearly ex
emplified by the following article
from the Weeping Water Repub
lican, which slurs the town they
pretended to support only a few
days ago. The Republican says:
"l'latimouth and Louisville have
effected a compromise; we under
stand Stander withdrew his injunc
tion proceedings, to prevent the
tearing down of the old court house
building, and the I'lattsmouth pa
oers sav an understanding has been
reached whereby Louisville and
I'lattsmouth will in the f uture work
in h.-irmonv. It looks verv much
like a case of sell out on the part of
Louisville. I'lattsmovth could well
aifortl to- and easily purchase a
half dozen of the leading (?) citizens
of that old mossbaek burgh, and we
believe she has done it."

The declamation this morning by
Miss iflanch Kennedy was certainly
a gem. Her delivery and gestures

as an elocutionist.
The declamation on the Chinese
question by Miss Maud K'ennie was
first class and does much credit to
the little lady who delivered it.
