The police committee reported on the
policemen's reauost for an advance
favorably and suggested that tho chief
be given J5 per month, a raise of $5,
and the patrolmen $60 a month, a raise
of 12.66. Some of the members thought
tho advance too small, and the matter
was inferred back to tho police com
mittee. The city engineer complained of poo
pie In various sections of the city leav
ing water run from outside hydrants,
thus allowing Ice to form on the
streets, to the danger of pedestrians
and horses. The matter was referred
to the street committee.

amended as to glvu the city engineer
nuthorlty to enforce tho penalty on all

This was not a tiuorum, but the city
.solicitor stated that It would answer
tho purpose, as the business was but
of a non-ofnclal nature.
It was concerning tho pavement as
sessment dispute. Ho explained tho
difficulties which had arisen over the
Illegality of the transactions concern
ing the paving of Fork place, Sixth
avenue, South Main street and Eighth
nvoriue. The abutting property hold
ers had refused to pay their portions
because some slight technicalities In
the business had given them a loop
hole to crawl out. In order to over
come this, he thought the most ex
pedient way was to havo tho legis
lature pass a bill validating the ordi
nances, thus making the Hens hereto
fore. Issued holding on the properties.

and Renresentative I'hllbln had Intro

the car at the time the churches were
being emptied of their congregations
drew a large crowd of curious persons,
who thronged In front of the olllce and
asked all manner of ejuestlons. Some
wag In the front of the gathering, on
being asked whnt was the trouble,-solemnly
answered thut "Steve Ollby has
shot a man," and immediately he was
overwhelmed by an avalanche of
queries, while comments of awe nnd
Indignation were excitedly buzzed by
the wondering onlookers which would
have made the constable's; ears burn.
After Dr. rial ley had finished tbu ex
