v In delaying action on a number of ap-
. polntees for teamsters and laborers In the
sewer department and C. C. Waldo as an
Inspector of public works, the council drew
S w.atament from City Engineer Hosewater
that he, bad received an opinion from City
Attorney B-jrnam to the effect that employes
already In the service do not have to be
reconfirmed, br' the mayor and council. In
view of this opinion, and on the urging of
ooundlmen; the engineer said, some em
ployes had remained on duty. As former
City Attorney Wright had held differently
, from i Mr.. Burnam, s according to the en
gineer, he preferred to take the safe
course and have employes approved. Ho
said, the teamsters were needed, . but the
counctlmen refused to confirm the men
without Inquiry Into their personalities.

The city engineer completed the tabula
tion of bids for the eewer contracts yester
day and struck off blue prints for the
same ready for the council meeting, which
Is to be held tonight . According to the
tabulation the National Construction com
pany, represented by George Parks, wilt be
awarded the greater portion of the con
tracts. His bid on the Mud creek sewer
amounted to 1166. 179. and on the Jetter
creek aewer t46,t06.94, therefore his con
tracts will amount to mZ.flRS.S.1 If this
amount la paid It will leave 137,911.17 In the
fund. According to the original appropria
tion Incorporated In the election proclama
tion, the amount available for the Mud
creek sewer waa not to exceed 1141,000, and
the present contracts would represents an
Increase of over 121,000 -for the work.
With the proposed modifications of the
plans of construction it Is the Intention to
use op the funds available as far aa they
will go atid depend on the future for a so
lution of the problem, , which, naturally
hinges on an act of the legislature providing
the authority to the city to Issue more
bonds' and a subsequent Issue to cover the
deficit According to the present ' senti
ment so far as expressed, there Is con
siderable doubt as to the popularity of
The serious question also arises, "Is It
possible legally to make a contract involv
ing the sum of 1300,000 while there Is but
1241,000 available?" It Is with this question
that the city engineer and the parties In
terested In the-enterprise have been strug
gling for the last few weeks. There can
be little doubt that the first move toward
the construction of the sewers will be met
with ' a determined opposition and injunc
tions. The legal questions will have to be
threshed out, no doubt, before the actual
work 'can be done. It is positively asserted
by some that an. Injunction club, or some
such company of men, is already preparing
to act directly on the first move of the
council. The number of men In the com
pany Is variously stated from twelve to
seventy. It may be that this opposition will
be mollified before there Is any - active

daring explorer, and will .devote the week
of September 21 to 20 to a remarkable clvio

a century of progress, for some featurea of
the display will show what baa been accom

Pike never reached the summit of the
peak. He saw Jt only from a- neighboring
height and did not heetitate to make the
prediction that "BO human being will ever
reach Its summit. , t.
If ' Pike could .return en anniversary day
he would find a marvel being accomplished.
Not only will nundreds of persons make the
ascent on foot and by train, but also in
automobiles, a form at locomotion that had
not even been dreamed of in his day.
The automobile, form of the celebration
will be an endurance run of twelve hours
to a height of three miles.
The plan of a celebration was conceived
ten years agowhen the monument associa

was ' signalised by a banquet at which

It ever happened before that maneuvers
have been held In the mountains.
The program is arranged as aa allegorical
history of the past 100 years in Colorado.
The name "Pike Peak" waa never offi
cially sanctioned by the government, but
was Informally, adopted after the early set
tlers had refused to designate the moun
tain as James Peak, the title first con
ferred by the War department. The early
maps never alluded to the sentinel of the
Rockies as Pike's Peak, and It was not un
til years after that the government finally
followed the lead of the trappers and ac
cepted Pike's Peak. . , , . . .

"What I really set out to tell you about
waa a f unnV, queer sort of a thing that
did happen once when the giant really got
sick when we were In winter quarters.
"He waa good and sick this time, and, of
course, the minute we realised thla fact we
hustled for a doctor on the lump. And we
had to get a doctor from town. Our own
doctor, who traveled with the show and lived
with' it,' - happened Just then to be away.
attending to some personal matters.
We got, of course, the star man there.
and he came and - looked the giant over,
going at It like a man who knew just
what he was about, and then he Wrote ta
prescription for him, which we got filled
by our swiftest rider, snd so we began
doctoring the giant, with that physician
coming three times a day to look him
"He seemed a wise man, sure enough,
who knew just what he was doing, but the
giant didn't Improve; ' tn fact, he got
sicker, and then the old man telegraphed
to the show's doctor to come and look
alter the giant.
" Why,' aald our own doctor, as soon aa
he arrived, 1 can't go in and push the
doctor that you've called right off ' the
map. ToU might want him to call again
any time, and It wouldn't do, anyway.
Tou must observe the proprletiee. Tou
muet get him to call me In consultation.' ;

but he did It, and the town doctor callnoN
our doctor In. I don't think the town doc

he did, and in about a minute our doe-
tor gave him a jolt that must have made
him change his opinion of circus doctors.
"He listened with all due dignity and de
corum, and even with a touch of defer
ence, our doctor did,' to what the man
from town bad prescribed, and then our
doctor asked to see the prescription, and
when he had scanend thla:
" 'Doctor,' he said, gravely and politely,
and he could be very grave and polite,
'doctor,' ho said, yonr dlagonsla of the
ease, If ytm will permit me to say so, does
credit to our profession, and the remedies
you have prescribed are precisely those
that I should have prescribed myself, but
I think that you have perhaps overlooked
one feature of the ease, and that is the
patient's dimensions. - The quantities
called for In your prescription are such as
would be administered to a man -ot nor
mal size, but this man Is approximately
three times that sixe. I think lf you
would multiply .the quantities In your pre
scription by three you would find the pa
