it came to the matter of his moving such
a building "hit personal enemies in the

against him" by extending the Are limit
for the sole purpose of placing a stumbling
block in his way. A motion requiring Mr,
Everett to veneer the buldlng with brick
within thirty day after, its removal to
Twelfth street, as demanded by the adjoin
ing property owner, prevailed, but this ac.
tlon was later rescinded as the aldermen
failed to see how they could enforce It
