REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON 'CITY PROP-
Mr. Riddle, Chairman of the Commit
tee on City Property, presented the fol
GENTLEMEN: Your Committee on City
Property respectfully report that the pe
tition of J. B. McDonald asking leave of
vacant public lot in the Fifth Ward, was
before them, but, for want of positive
data as to the status of the city, the mat
ter was referred to the Engineer to report
whether the city owned any property in
the locality referred to.
In.the matter of improving a reserved
central space of forty feet on Market
street, where the width is ninety feet,
and over, your Committee report ad
veraely thereto, for the reason that the
city has no funds at present from which
to pay coat of said improvement. 2 ,
In relation to providing office' room
for city officers, your Committee report
that upoa careful reflection and consider
ation of the whole subject, the best plan
of complying with the instructions of
your honorable bodies is to appropriate
the spaces in the City Building as was
originally intended by the architect, and
which is as follows: Take the Library
room for Select Council Chamber; the
present chamber of Select for Common
Council; the prbsent Common Council
Chamber for Engineer's room; the pres
ent room of Engineer, in connection moth
the present room of Controller, for Con
This arrangement of space in the
opinion of the Committee is the best, not
only because it is the cheapest, but be
cause all other 'changes are mutilations,
and at best only make shifts and other
temporary conveniences, serving no
other purpose than entailmgcost without
corresponding benefit; tue proposed
change locates Council chambers to
gether, better facilitating communication
between the branches. The transfer of
the Engineering Department locates that
office in the best portion of the building,
adapted to the purpose both on account
of l ight and ample space. The adding
of the Engineer-room to the Controller
gives that officer a place to transact his
private business without interruption,
and this without cost other than the ex
pense of furnishing the same.
The principal item of expense in effect.
Mg the whole change, will be in carry
ing up the vault to the second door, to
provide for the safe keeping of papers '
pertaining to that ;office. The extension
of the vault is necessary, in any event,
so as to provide a depository for the ac-,
cumulating and past accumulated Coun
cil papers, de. As matters are at pros.
tint arranged, the papers or Councils are
mainly in the custody of the Treasurer,
but are more or less scattered in various
parts of the building. The Treasurer not
being the proper custodian of such pa
perm, it is not to bepresumed he desires
annoyance by the frequent applications
of parties to see and examine old papers,
records, dra., more especially in view of
the fact that such au application is likely
to be made in his greatest hurry.
To carry out any and all of the above
suggestions, your Committee report the
following resolution, and respectfully
ask its adoption:
Resolved, That the Committee on City
Property be and they are hereby author
ized to carry into effect the above recom
mendations, first - notifying the mana
gers of the Allegheny Library to vacate

City Building on or before the first day

Committee in conjunction with the Con;

work in accordance with plans to be pre !

CITY FEINTING AGAIN;
Mr. Warner presented the report of the
Committee on City Printing, with the fol.
lowing bills for the quarter ending,
March Slat: '
GAzurra, $164 75; Dispatch, $159 75;
Freedom's Freund, 5159 61; total, $484 21.
The amounts to which tbese papers
would be entitled, according to th old
contract, are as follows:
GAZETTE. $134 94: Dispatch, $1 94;
Fi eedom's Freund, 5134 61; total, 54 09.
The difference being 580 the Com ttee
asked for instructions as to what a Lion
should be taken.
Mr. Tate moved to receive and file
the report.. Not seconded.
Mr. Oomley moved that the Comm ttee
be instructed to pay the larger amount.
Mr. McNeil moved to refer the report
back to the Committee with instructions
to report a proper amount to be paid.
This motion was seconded.
Mr. Warner said the Committee had
asked Councils for instructions. They
had decided as the report stated, and
could proceed 130 further without being
authorized by Councils. -
Mr. Hanna moved to amend by in-
structing the Committee to pay the bills
according to the amount claimed by
each paper, and then advertise for pro
posals for farther publishing during the
Mr. Hastings seconded the'amendment.
The subject was now discussed at great
length, and thoroughly exhausted by
Messrs. Mograw, Hanna, Long, Warner
and Comley. I •
Mr. Hastings finally offered as lip
amendmont that the Committee on
Printing be instructed to pay the city
printers three hundred dollars each Mr
their services during the year.
This developed a spicy debate between
several members, in which the personal
qualifications of each for the transaction
of business, and .the question of city
printing became very unhappily blended.
A vote was finally taken, which resulted
In the adoption of the amendment. The
chair now decided the question to be on
the original motion as amended.
This caused another "muddle," during
which personal explanations, motions,
counter-motiolls and amendments were
offered extensively. A vote being taken,
as directed by the =air, the "motion 'as
amended," was lost, the previous action
of Councils in adopting the amendment
being thus reversed. • '

we stand now? [Laughter.]

If we take 1,000 individuals vi tth 11250
each, 911 experience shows that for every
one of them who accumulates a fortune,
or even a competenby, ten or twenty
will die with nothing, and leave their
families in poverty. This comes of the
"every man for hiraself" idea. Now let
these 1,000 men put their money into a
common fund, and at six per cent it will
pay the heirs of every one of them one
thousand dollars at his death, and there
will be a surplus left when the last man
is dead. If instead of 1250 they each con- .
tribute Iwo, .it will establish a perma
nent fund, which will not only pay their
immediate heirs, but will also give one
thousand dollars to the heirs of one of
the descendants of each of them in ev

this may appear, a very little arithmetic

I Fall of a Church at Sewickley.
At noon Wednesday the new Catholic
Church in course of erection at Sewick
ley was demolished by the „giving way,
first, of the roof, made of slate, followed
by the aide walls, the tower and front
wall reMaining standing. The Church
waebulit of brick, Gothic style, in the
shape of a cross, and was very nearly
lompleted. Some time since a slight
.preading of the aide walls was observ
-3d, not sufficient, however, it seems, to
create apprehension for the safety of the
structure, the builders proceeding with
their work uninterruptedly. At the time
of the fall, however, none of: the em
pldres were at the bnildingr, hence we
have no casualties: to record/ The' loss
occasioned is esitimated at' from 1115,000
to f 20,000.
