cleaned, but the man that took the job

when it descended to ubout six feet of

lie was then sure that the well had
poisonous gas iu it, and took a small
umbrella, tiod a string to the haudle
and lowered it open into the well.
Having lowered it nearly to the bot

1 he city council met in adjourned
session last night, all members pres
ent with Mayor Ilichey presiding.
Minutes of former meeting read and
approved. The Nebraska Telephone
Co gave a report of the line which
they wished to follow, and the same
was placed on file. The city treasurer
reported 87,2o7.(i7 on hand.
Consid erable discussion was in
dulged in about the telephone muddle
and a resolution was passed endorsing
tho injunction. .suit and declaring the
intention of the council to fight it out
in the courts unless the old company
should conclude to take out a fran
chise. Mayor Richey stated that he
thought the Nebraska Telephone Co.
was goiDg to ask for "a fronchise, and
was surprised that nothing of the kind
had been done. Several side Wt'ilk
resolutions were passed. The roof of
the gas holder was ordered repaired,
and the sewers in the alley back of the
Fit.ge -aid block were ordered low
ered. After the allowence of claims,
which will be printed tomorrow the
