. "The safely of the public is the supreme
law of the land."
On this ancient legal principle, which has
become the cornet stone of the laws of
many countrlus, will rest the city council
In its defense of the action about to be
brought Hgainst it for damages by the S. 1.
Mercer company for the demolition of the
company's old Cambridge hotel at Thir
teenth struct and Capitol avenue. The
council will contend that the removal of
the old building wat necessary for the
saf.sty of the public ttnd that the owner
of property is not deprived of his constl
' tutlonal rights when that property Is a
nuisance and it Is ordered abated.
Before the 8. D. Mercer company per
fects its appeal to the courts It will present
to the council a formal claim tor W0.0

and the same lias been brought to his at

Kalled ( Appeal Case.
The assistant city attorney says that the
council, sitting as the first tribunal, took
testimony in the condemnation proceedings
against the Cambridge hotel property.
"The owners were given a chance to
presont their side of the case and they did
so," he says. "When the council decided
that the building should be rased, the
owners should have appealed to the courts,
which right is given them. This they
failed to do and' It is now too late for an
appeal to be taken. , .
"The city charter provides that the coun
cil can direct that all -and any building
within the fire limits, when the same shall
have been damaged by fire, decay or other
wise, to the extent of SO per cent of the
value of a similar new building above the
foundation, shull be torn down or re
moved. In the hearing against the Cam
bridge hotel the preponderance of evidence
was that the building had decayed to tiie
extent of 50 yer cent of the cost of a
similar structure and therefore the council.
