discussion After the city attorney had given the information that all councils violate the laws In spending money the ocuc-cllmen saw that to trv to hold former councils would be an open accusation on the work being done by the present body In order to transact business it is often naces-Bary to transfer funds contrary to law While some of these expenditures are Illegal they are asked for by the txpayers and must be granted The finance committee was then Instructed to have the work done although Salladln and Sperr voted against the two year audit An appeal was made to the council to grade

Develop a Great Deal of Eloquence MANY MATTERS ARE DISPOSED OF AT LENGTHY MEETING Councilman Brunton undoubtedly will regret the fact that he was 111 and could not attend the meeting of the city council on Monday evening The other nine members were present and they listened to and Indulged in eloquence for several hours The session started out with a whoop and for a few minutes there were indications that there would be something doing which would add unusual Interest to the meeting There were many Interesting things In connection with the business of the evening but none more Interesting than the speech made In sections by Councilman Quinn The gentleman from the first ward under the title of James Quinn had applied to the council for a permit to construct an elevator near the said building to be not in accord with the city ordinance The matter went to a committee and Chairman McIntosh reported for the committee that the request could not be granted as It was contrary to the regulations That started the fireworks Mr Quinn Jumped to his feet thrust his hands Into his pockets and proceeded to address Mr McIntosh "I thought so! You let Jackson Ankney build an elevator in the street But I build one on my own property This personality has got to be stopped I pay as much taxes here as anybody but you turn me down while you let a foreign corporation come In here and build tanks in the fire limits They are non-taxpayers and put up tanks to store explosives 6 00 O'! gallons cf gasoline explosive I tell you It means that I have got to move out of my home or be carted to the cemetery TJe councilman wad angry and so much so that he could scarcely talk Mr Sperr tried to smooth matters over by saying that the ordinance had to he followed and the committee conld not grant the permit However this only caused a fresh outbreak want a permit I take It If it was offered to me 1 would vote against it I have to put up any building You know that "a brick building stand for an elevator and yet you allow anybody except me to put up a frame building The cost of this building would cost as much as a brick But I knew It would never pass the council I was perfectly satisfied on Mayor Harris told the gentletaan that the members of the council all felt kindly toward him that there was no personal feeling but tha the council must be governed by the ordinances out your ordinances then" was the rejoinder To this the mayor replied that all are acting In good faith and Mr Quinn ended the first chapter by saying all However he had no sooner taken his seat than he was np again and addressed Mr McIntosh He said: "How about the dirty old ice box that you moved for Johnson? Who gave you a permit to move that old dirty thing alongside of that nice new building? You hauled It yourself for a few paltry dollars" There was a reply to this that the box had been moved to help ut while some machinery was being repaired There were other spurts during the evening The Union Pacific was reported to have violated the order of the council to the laying of water main connections at its round house The council had ordered that the meter should be placed at the end of the city main instead of at the property line of the company and that there should be no by-pass The statement was made that the c'ty officials had been Informed that the meter would be placed where originally intended and no one would stop it Mr Cummings then made a speech In which he said corporations would take anything they could get their hands on He said the" city had given the Union Pacific about all they had asked for' However he wanted everybody tp pay for the city water they use In this statement he was ably supported by Mr Kneemeyer who said that If the 1 Council Compliments City Engineer On His Work and Instructs Him to Prepare and Record Plat FALL OP 425 FEET WILL SUPPLY 8000 HORSE POWER City Engineer Lamb has good cause to feel good today Hs was liberally patted on the back last evening by the members of the city council for his work In connection with the-Burvey for a reservoir up the Poudre He made a statement of what he had found and gave his ideas In connection with the work The council was highly pleased and Instructed him to proceed to get out a map of the work he had done and file on the proposed site Mr Lamb made his report in connection with a blackboard illustration of the situation He started work at the big narrows Just below one of proposed reservoirs He found a dam aite there which would allow the construction of a dam 425 feet high His survey went to the south leaving the river and avoiding the survey of The reservoir Is to he fed by ditch and pipe line from the river above creek He said a pipe line would greatly reduce the distance between the reservoir and the head of the supply The Little South will supply some of the water but at some seasons of the year there would not he sufficient water to answer the purpose of a power plant One tunnel he said would be 613 feet long Another one of 150 feet would be necessary If a pipe line were Installed This pipe line would shorten the distance about one-third His bill for $52868 was passed and Mr Hedke made the statement that the work which had been done was worth from $1500 to $20'0 He further stated that it Is not an easy matter to get men to work for the same wages they receive In the city and at the same time put up with the discomforts which go with the work these men have been engaged in He said the work of Mb Lamb looks good to him A filing should be made at once so that the city will he on record A future survey would probably bring out more detailed information but that will come when needed The city now has a foothold on what will prove many times more valuable than the cost This reservoir he stated should 'develop at least 3000 horse power and would answer the needs for many years to come The work can be done in two stages One with the Installation of the plant and then complete development as the power Is needed Mayor Harris said he was pleased with the report and was also pleased that the counctlmen considered the expenditure worth the while The report on the probably amount of money received monthly by the Northern Colorado Power company was then taken up Acton had been engaged in this work and he had listed all houses where current was used or where connections were made A few individuals and the board of education had not stated the amount of current used or bills paid out but his report showed that the $139985 per month reported paid to the power company will easily reach 34500 per month or $55000 per year The canvas cost the city $60 and it was considered a good expenditure The report will be filed for future asa EMPRESS
