QOLES IN AN ORDINANCE ,
An Amount Fixed For Building Permit Fees
and No Penalty Named.
A PARK CONCERT TO-NIGHT
Another Dnylof Hlinrn IjCRal
Over I'ruhitilclun Hhort 1'olntcra.
on Itcal Kuntc nnil llullttlng
Tlio clt.y council about two weeks ngc
passed an ordinance which was Intended
to cover n very important matter. There
has been no ordinance , such as is com
mon In otliar cities , providing for the
Issuance of building permits. There
was un old ordinance. which provided
that before making certain excavation !
a permit should bo obtained from the
city clerk , but this was of littlu account ,
even if enforced , and worse than that it
was treated as a do ad letter.
There were numerous reasons , manj
of them apparent to any one thinking
about the matter , why an ordinance was
needed to regulate the erection of build
ings and the making of improvements.
The council has attempted to fill this want
in part at least , but it has proved a sad
failure. Without attempting to fix the
responsibility , the fact is sullicient thai
the ordinance as published would do tu
tile away alongside of the law passed b.y
an eastern legislature some years ago. in
which the repealing clause read : "This
and all other laws fb conflict with it are
hereby repealed. "
The first section of the ordinance is a
sample of the literature in which many
words are used to conceal a few ideas ,
and is interesting reading :
That hereafter It shall bo the duty of any
person or persons , company or companies ,
corporation or corporations , by themselves 01
axent or agents , who are about to , and who
Intend to make any Improvements In said
city , by the erection of any building on any
street , highway , avenu * or alley , either busi
ness house , dwelling house or the erection of
any building or other Improvement as afore
said. upon any business or resident street ,
highway , avenue or alley , or when any ex
cavation is contemplated and about to be
made upon lot or lots within the limits of
said city , any person or persons , company or
companies , corporation or corporations , by
themselves , agent or agents , before the com
mencement of the erection of any business
building or dwelling house or other improve
ments , or the excavation In any lot or lots
preparatory to making any improvement ? as
aforesaid , shall apply to the city clerk for a
permit to make said Improvement or Im
provements as above mentioned.
The next section attempts to provide
that tbo applicant for such permit shall
furnish the city clerk with a description
of the land or lot and the nature and kind
of the improvement to be made. It also
provides that he shall pay the clerk the
sum of - . The blank has never boon
lijled , and the clerk is evidently left to
his own judgment , or to the generosity of
The other section of this remarkable
ordinance makes the sweeping provision
that "any person failing to take out said
permit shall be guilty of a misdemeanor
and on conviction shall bo lined in a sum
not exceeding $ - and costs. " Here
again the judge is put in a puzzling frame
of mind , for he cannot line the offender
more than $ - . Those blanks have evi
dently been overlooked , and hence the
ordinance is nn algebraic one. with un
known quantities in abundance.
The ordinance has gone into the now
book of ordinances , and is pronounced of
no use there , or elsewhere.
The need of a good building ordinance
Is daily apparent. The need is increasing
as the city grows. Were such a record
kept as is contemplated by the ordinance
it would show at llio close of the year a
greater growth in the city than is gcii-
o rally supposed.
The old fight was renewed in the dis
trict court yesterday , involving about the
same old points as to closing up the sa
loons. The particular case in hand was
that in which an attempt is made to so-
euro a permanent injunction against the
St. Louis bouse , which has been occupied
by Docrlliugcr , and which is owned by
Mr. George D. Urown , one of the old citi
zens , who is himself engaged in the coal
business on Main street. The depositions
taken to support the application for a
permanent injuction having been sup
pressed on account of some technical de
fects , the prosecution had to introduce
other evidence to bolster up their case.
The last pair of saloon informers
were put upon the stand and were
subjected to about the same sort of cross-
examination as when the contempt case
against Urown was heard by Judge Car
son. These two young men had been
hired away from farm work and given $3
a day und expenses to gather evidence in
this city , to be used against saloons.
They went from place to place , ono buy
ing whisky , the other beer , and then sign
ing aflldavits of those facts. They drank
about ton glasses each day , ana still
swore that they did not feel ny special
effects from it , although not used to
drinking. They freely testified as to the
arrangements by which they were hired
to got this evidence. The defense tried
to make a good deal of this , ana dwelt
largely upon the prosecution furnishing
men with money and paying them
wages to go around and induce other
men to break the law , in order
to secure evidence with which to con
vict them. E. ' W. Jackson , the old chief
of police and ex-city marshal , was called
to the stand also , lie was an unwilling
witness , and although he knew a great
deal about the St. Louis house and is a
near neighbor , ho was not disposed to
give anything which would nelp the
prosecution. He was closely pinned
down and the judge gave him a gentle
but firm prod , so time he hed to admit
that ho know that liquors were sold ID
The dufcnso claimed that so far as
Urown was concerned ho know nothing
about the place being used as a saloon ,
and that his lease expressly provided thai
ills tenants should not use it for any un <
lawful purpose. There were numerous
legal questions raised , and the discussion
of these was very strong and shrewd. The
afternoon hour of adjournment had been
reached when the arguments were closed ,
and Judge Udcmer asking for the papers
in the case , ordered the sheriff to announce
nounco the adjournment until 0:30 o'clock
Points of I'roercis.
That Council Muffs is not only holding
her own but is steadily advancing , anil
hat there is a demand for real estate foi
actual settlers , is shown by the following
chats and items :

real estate transfers in this city are ftii

for the last thirty days done more busi
