A delegation of ten Wood River women appeared before (he meeting of the village council iu-.Wood H.lver last, night "and requested the councllmen to pass an ordinance prohibiting the runniiig of chickens at large. Mrs. A. K. Whilelaw, who made* complaint recently regarding the running of 0. Y. Henry's pig at large, was one of the women who appeared before the council. She gave a brief talk to the councilmen last night. Mrs. E. K, En- dicptt, Mrs. Margaret Haller and Mrs. M. F. Manning also gave short talks to the councilmen on the subject. " The councilmen conferred about th matter and decided not to take any im mediate action. Attorney Wllliamsoi said that there was such an ordinance on the books prohibiting the running of fowls and animals at large, but Ilia ,no test case had yet been made in th Supreme Court and he .was andecidet as to whether it would hold. The pres ent ordinance will be strictly adherer to in prosecutions for complaints o this nature and fines will be assesset •unlit some one does really decide to test the case. The'women also asked for., an ordi name providing for'fines .for those who did not secure and malte use o garbage cans. It is proposed that the village send a team and wagon around once a month and collect .up the gar bage. The women promised to make arrangements for planting flowers am shrubs in public spots about the vil lage after the garbage ordinance was drawn up and enforced. The council men promised- to take iip the matter as soon as possible, bub no action was taken last night. Two ordinances were passed. One created an inspection of. electric lights and wires and the other provided for the sewer and water improvements in Head's Addition. J. A. Head promised to have the work done himself at his own expense, but It was' necessary for the couucilmen to, approve the work by the passage of an ordinance. • 'A-blue print of the'jiew addition across from the school house which for the present is known as Penning's second addition was presented by Prod Penning, and was accepted. The plat will be drawn up later. The property lies between Lor'cna and Madison avenues and is some of the most valuable property in Wood River. .in ,i Following the regular meeting, there was a second session for tho reorgan ization. George Dalton and Artie James took their seats .back In the council. W. N. Dulaney, councilman, and Irwin.Lynch were new members. Mayor Beach made his appointments which were the same as last year.
