The following opiuiou from the city
solicitor was read:
In November last I brought suit upon
claims for grading Lucerne street certi
fied to me lor collection against about
thirty property owunru. They tiled ulll
davit of d feuse, alleging as i he principal
ground of defense that under the provi
sions of the act of lSsj the councils had no
power to improve a street by grudiug only
and to make an assessment for the cest by
the foot front rule.
The sufficiency of this defonso
argued ill tho last nrgtiinont court before
Judges Archhald and Gunster. They
handed down a statement that they were
unable to agree as to the sufficiency of the
defense; and, therefore, refused to enter
judgment. L'poa this refusal, the city
has tho right to carry the case into the
supreme cvurt for determination there.
The question involves not only the legality
of the assessment on Luaerae street, but
is, I am Informed, on some other streets
where asaxistUMUts have not yet been col
lected, and which were graded by the foot
front, rule.
1 think it would he desirabio to obtsin a
ruling of the supreme court, if possible,
upon the question as early as possible, iu
order that the assessments m J he col
lected, if legal; and it' not, that; step)
may be taken to secure a reassessment.

Besides the West Virginia prop
erty he understood tho Wyom
ing Manufacturing company owned
several aori of coal land between this
city and Olypbnut In 1888 the com
pant was making money but instead of

used to improve tlin property. In 1881
the company lost considerable money

much morn than what it was sold for.
?.Ir, Mary Roscnagle was re-called to
the stand and said she would not nave
purchased the stock had she known
that the property of the Wyoming
Manufacturing compiny was located
in West Virginia and had not Judge
Hundley, In whom she had the utmost
confidence, recommended that she take
the stock and guaranteed to pay the

mony for the plaintiff and Attorney
GUorgeS, Horn opened for tho defense,
saying that they would show that no
misrepresentation was male to Mr.

told that the property ot the Wyoming
