The mass meeting Monday night
was well attended and plans made
for obaining- | information from a
capable engineer as to the probable
cost of a system of water works and
electric lighting plant which will
include a dam , two wells with
pumps , steel tank and the necessary
machinery and wiring. H. Dailey
was elected chairman and W. D.
Armstrong secretary who were in
structed to obtain necessary infer
mation. The next meeting will be
at the call of the chairman.
Several new sidewalks have been
laid the past two or three weeks.
The city dads are putting in cinders
for crossings much to the disgust
of citizens who were compelled to
put down good sidewalks. If cin
ders are good enough for crossings ,
why not good enough for side
walks ? If the city can save expense
by putting down cinders , why are
the people as individuals not allow
ed that privilege ? And , since they
appear so officious in thatand-some
other demands made upon individ
uals , why are they shielding some
and hampering others ? Their con
duct seems to be to make some citi-
zecs comply scrictly with laws and
ordinances , while others are per
mitted to maintain private nuisances
to the public without question and
in opposition to ordinances or the
regulation demanded of others. For
instance , they have permitted livery
men to drive over tne sidewalks , or
the place for sidewalks , into their
barns or inclosures , and refuse that
privilege to Geo. H. Hornby to get
into his lumber yard. They also
talk of having him move his coal
shed because it obstructs the view
of the street , while W. S. Barker
maintains steps projecting onto the
sidewalk and two open stairways on
the main street that in a menace to
life. He has also fenced in the
street south of his home , where a
sidewalk should be built , and is thus
depriving people of not only a side
walk but the use of the ground in
tended for a sidewalk. We would
suggest that before he gives any
further orders , that they open up
his street and build a sidewalk in
front of his borne and close up the
gaping cellar way in front of his
office. As a town board , treat oth
ers with the same consideration
that you , as citizens , expect and en
