Those who have been taking the direct

The Council Acts Qticcrly.
The city cots n per cent of all the
money taken In on the city wcighmns-
tcr's scales. Although the city allows
private scales to hnvo the use of its
grounds and be located in the best point
in the city for money making in this line ,
the city gets not $ 1 from It. It allows pri
vate parties to lake tlio revenue which
belongs to the city wolglinmstcr's ofllco
nnd tlio city gets not 1 cent.
The city wcighmaster simnly nsks the
council to arrange Its ordinances so that
puhllt ! weighing shall bo done by him
and his deputies , and the city to get its
lawful per cent of the business , Some of
the aldermen refuse to do this , thu only
excuse being that they do not want to
interfere with anybody , and had rather
let the city losj Its lighlltil revenue than
llurt anybody's feelings or get Into n law
suit. U is .strange that this peculiar ton-
durnu.ss should be exhibited , but perhaps
the prtnpeet of near approaching elec
tions may account in part.
With many it matters notsomuchas to
the personal wishes or the personal dis
likes of Air. Amy. or of others directly in
terested. Citizens at largo , having no
feeling in the matter , do want to .see tU o
council so act us to secure to the city
every dollar of revenue due it. They
also wiint lo have the public given every
possible protection. Ttto.se who have to
depend on ihecertilicato of some weigher
\v\\on \ \ purchasing commodities , have the
right to expect that the city weighniasler
Is the party to. do such weighing and
issue such ccrtilieato.
Some of f'o city council are acting
very strangely about the matter of the
city weighing. They do not seem dis
posed lo make any move in the matter or
pay an.y attention to the petitions of the
city weiglunaster for duo protection to
his ollieo. The fact is the people elected
Mr. Amy as city weighniasler lor a period
of two years. It matters not whether the
people made a wise choice or not , or
whether ho is a democrat or a republi
can. Ho is the city weifrhninstor , and as'
such is entitled to an attentive hearing
and a fair consideration. As long ago as
last spring ho called the attention of the
council to the fact that while there was
an ordinance regulating the weighing and
compelling persons to use the city scales ,
there was no penalty named for violation
of this part of the ordinance. It was there
fore of no use to try and enforce
jt. A man with a load ot liny could have
it weighed wherever lie chose , and if ar
rested and found guilty of violating the
ordinance , no punishment ootild bo af-
lixed , as no punishment was named in
the ordinance. The council expressed
informally a desire to protect the city
scales and compel persons to have their
produce weighed by the city weiglimaster
instead of by private parties , but when
an ordinance was presented to cause an
enforcement of the ordinance , they
killed it. The ohicf cause of complaint
on the part of the city weighmastor is
Lhnt a worthy man , Mr. Ilonn , has es
tablished scales at the junction of Main
and Pearl streets , the scales being lo-
oated on ground owned by the city , and
the street being used as a market place ,
and the proceeds of this arrangement
are going into the pockets of private
parties. Air. Amy claims that if anyone
is to use the city's property , and is to
linyo the advantage of the site , the city
weiglimaster ought to be given the pref
erence over a private person. It is also
claimed with a great deal of force that the
city is losing a revenue which it ought
to nave , and to which it is entitled.
Any ono can refuse to buy unless the
seller will agree to weigh on the city
scales , but few want to enter into any
such controversy with a .single party.
The duty seems to rest with the council
to regulate the question of weighiirg , and
the aldermen ought not to shirk the re
sponsibility. The public may bo getting
honest weights , but having elected a man
for this yer.y purpose , to ensure the hon
esty of weights , it is natural that they
should ask the council to have him pro
tected In the exercise of his duties , and
held responsible for them.
Just why the city council should year
after year ignore this matter , and allow
the city to be deprived , of a revenue
which rightfully belongs to it , is beyond
explanation. The city weiglimaster oilers
to have the scales moved to the location
on Main street , now occupied 1)3' ) private
parties , although owned by the city.
Alderman -Shugart pays ho will
consent to his doing so if he wants to ,
but ho wants the city weighmastor to do
what fighting is necessary in the courts
to get the private senlcs moved oft" from
city ground. It docs not appear that
Alderman Shugart is willing , either , to
have any penalties allixcd to the ordi
nance so as to have it enforced , nnd thus
compel the public lo use the official
scales. Hundreds of dollars are lost
yearly by the city , but that seems to cut
no liguro. The position taken by the
council is a , mystery , and especially so
when oven the mayor , from the moment
ot his taking the oath of oillco , has kept
reminding the council of its duty nnd
urging its performance. The city attor
ney has also advised a like course nnd
prepared needed ordinances nnd resolu
tions , but these , too , have been ignored.
It looks as if there was more to this af
fair than appears on the surface , nnd that
some secret motives must be deep down

Two small boys , sons of prominent
citizens , wcro brought before Judge
Aylesworth yesterday charged with
shooting within the city limits. The
boys had a revolver with which they had
been shooting at n lamp post. The judge
read the law to them , nnd figuring up
the maximum hue , and adding thu costs ,
made them realize Jh.it cash hole in the
lamp post might cost them $ ! 15. At that
price a shot the sport seemed rhther dear

ho soothed them by giving them n chance
to go home nnd consult with their

About the lirst of the year the police
arrested a young man who was tryinc to
sell n $200 sealskin clonk for a few del
lars. The fellow was taken in on sus
picion , nnd since then the ofllccrs have
been hunting for the owner of ilia cloak ,
BO that ho could be successfully prose
cuted. No tidings of any such cloak
being stolen could bo learned. The fel
low gave his name as I.nine , and said
that the cloak belonged to his mother ,
who was waiting at the transfer while he
could rnlso some money on the garment ,
but no such woman could bo found at the
place named. In order to hold the fel
low ho was charged with vagrancy , and
sent to jail for liftccn days. His time
was about up when word was received
from Chicago which indicated that he
was wanted thuro. While holding him
for further instructions from Chicago
ollicers , it was learned that ho was
wanted at Cheyenne. Constable Edger
ton , of Omaha , received information
from Cheyenne , giving a description of
the cloak and the fellow. The facts of
the taking were thai the fellow was in
a notorious house kept by May
'West ' , in that eitv , nml during an
apparent frolic , put on this cloak , saying
he "guessed ho would go out and throw
n lilllo style wilh it. " lie stopped out of
the house , and didn't return. Edgerton
came over hero yesterday with a descrip
tion ot the man and thu cloak , and there
being no doubt thai ho was at last placed ,
he was given over to Constable Edgor-
ton , whom he agreed to go with to
Omaha , and there await the arrival of
the ollicer from Cheyenne. Tin ? follow says
he will go back without any requisition.
Although he is known here as lining , he
is heller known as Charles Hay. He
formerly was a resident of Omaha , and
used to sell papers for Barkalow Bros.
Ho got behind with them about $00 ,
and his brother , who was on his bond ,
had to pay the shortage. Since then lit
tle has been heard of him , until now
