City And I tor Warns Members Ac Inst
Overdrafts Faults Plan to Hold
Carnival- Assessor's Booka
Are Ready.
The new city council last night after
listening to the mayor's message and con
firming his appointments disposed of a
large amount of routine and otner matters
in a business-like manner and with con
siderable dispatch. beveral important
matters were referred to the committee of
the whole and a meeting to consider the'm
will be held Thursday afternoon.
At the meeting of the committee of the
whole the recommendations and sugges
tions contained in the mayor's mesxage will
be considered.
Mayor Maloaey's Mesaaae.
The mayor In his message said:
To the Members of the City Council,
Gentlemen: As this is our tirst meeting
of the new council, where mere will be any
'uusiuess tianaacvfd and nrougnt up, t
wisn to present to you the following ques
tions, wiiicn, in my Judgment, demand Ini
nieuiate attention.
First, one or tne matters which properly
cullies before you lor your consiueranon,
is the question ot waterworks. This ques
tion has been agitated from every stand
point lor the lui six years, 'inere Is no
reason, in my judgment, wny tne system
huuia not be Immediately extended to tne
bill ana bouom disnicts, to atlord them
fire protection and water service. How this
la to be accomplished should be determined
by you. The tirst coslderation is
whether wa have the funds to acquire a
plant for the city at tne present time. That
matter is in court now, but how long 1( will
take to settle 1 don't know. The second,
how can we acquire that plant most ad
vantageously ana speedily tor the city.. To
this question you should give your early
attention and your best business Judgment,
to the end that the present unfortunate
situation can come to an end, and that a
staisfactory one to yourself and to our
As to Indian creek, my position is well
known. 1 have recommended In the past
that the system of tunne.lng at the edge of
the city limits is the only feasible way to
dispose of this matter. The last council's
action In the matter consisted In instruct
ing the city engineer to make surveys and
find the cost of constructing a tunnel. It
la Important that this work should be Im
mediately completed, and if. In your Judg
ment, the action of the past meets with
your approval, I believe that Immediate
action should be taken by you gentlemen.
As to the extension of the street car sys
tem, the growth of our city and the wants
of the people have made the extension of
the street car syBtem a necessity, and for
that reason the council should Insist upon
such extensions as are necessary.
In reference to repavlng Broadway, this
Important matter should not be delayed.
Last year the motor company In making
repairs at the Intersection of Pearl street
and Broadway, on a request from the
mayor and city council, replaced the old
granite with Purlngton block, and this is
such a vast Improvement over the uneven
rock pavement that it met with the ap
proval of the business men of the city. I.
therefore, recommend to you, gentlemen of
the council, that you will take auch Imme
diate action In this matter aa well repave
such portion of Broadway as In your judg
ment will be necessary for the betterment
of the business Interests of the city.
In the next two years there win ha
good many important matters come up for
VOl 1 r rnnalrlwrafinn In lha V. - n i
provitnerrts and things of that kind. I
would recommend that any proposition be
fore the council, amounting to over 1200 or
any ordinance granting right of ways or
anything of that kind, should be laid over
ror one ween after It is nrenentert n th
council, before there is any discussion on
It. , ,
