Another snnrl In the tangle ancnt
tho recent awarding of the contracts
for fire apparatus was produced by
select council last night, when two
resolutions were passed directing the
recorder to recall the contracts already
signed nnd directing that new bids
bo advertised for.
These resolutions were offered by
Mr. demons, "by request," he said.
Tho llrst directs tho recorder to recall
the contracts and tn cancel them, nnd
also directs both him and Hie con
troller to refuse to sign any warrants
made payable to any of the companies
to whom the contracts were awarded.
Tho second resolution directs that
new bids for a steamer, a hook and
ladder truck and 1500 feet of hose bo
advertised for and that council shall
open the same and awnrd the con
tracts. Mr. demons said that this
last part of the resolution wns a
proviso Intended to take effect only
in case the "chaser" bill is not signed.
Mr. Melvln was the only member
who openly opposed the passage of the
resolutions. He said something about
the agent of the company which bid
the lowest on the steamer not ap
pearing before the board of city offi
cials which awarded the contracts, but
nobody paid much attention to what
he had to say.
PURCHASE OF STEAMER.
Mr. Oliver said that in the purchase
of the steamer alone the city had
been done out of $600. Mr. Melvln had
referred to Mr. Bauson, tho agent of
the company to whom the fire engine
ontract had been awarded, and Mr.
Oliver said it would be "a good thing
if tho city was rid of Bausch,"
whereat everybody smiled, as If mem
ories of the past were flooding in upon
them. The resolutions were notn

Chairman Cosgrove, reported the li
cense tax ordinance with the recom
mendation that it he split into two
ordinances, one including tlu part
providing for a tax upon the gross re
ceipts of corporations nnd the other
including the rest of the ordinance.
Several of the members of the com
mittee spoke in favor of appointing a
joint committee of councils to con
sider the license question on account
of tho fact that two measures, one
originating in each branch, are now
under consideration. There seemed to
be a general sentiment In favor of this
idea and a resolution Introduced later
in tho evening providing for the ap
pointment of such a committee was
passed unanimously. The following
resolutions were introduced and
By Mr. Wagner Prohibiting tho exploding of
flic crackers or flicwoikn in Nay Aug park.

safety to fuini-h r.nmicilt with full information

which must bo soon taken up. It was

Every year the foolishness of paying
