The sower committee submitted the following report which was ordered placed on file and publication requested in tbe city papers: •'Wberoaa there arc numerous objections and false accusations made by evil designing people relative to tbe council's action in tbe location of tbe sewer now in course of construction on Erie avenue and whereas said eewer was ordered by the unanimous vote of ibis council ae being the most practical way to provide work for tbe unemployed laboring people of Loganaport who were suffering for food to sustain themselves and families, and whereas tbe action of the council toward relieving their wants was prayed for by a petition signed by the tax payers and business people of Logansport. And whereas said sewer was proposed by our city civil engineer as being part of the system of sewer adopted by the city and now partly put ia as being the most available manner In providing employment for such labor; and, Whereas, Tbe location of eald sewer waa chang< d from the original line. designed by the plan to run from 8th and llth streets to the Wabasb river, which line had no property holders on to pay anything towards the expense of said sewer, and, Whereas, Said original line from 8th to llth streets to Wabash river, would be more expensive on account of the atooe being close to the surface, besides having to cross tbe Wabash and Pan Handle Railroad yards, com. prising twenty.five tracks, thereby making the work hazardous to the safety of the men' and damaging to the railroads; therefore, your sewer committee after carefully estimating the extra " cost of running said gfwer 'under these railroad tracks including,' , the continuoua blast, ing of rook which we would have, to contend with along said Hue by the chairman Mr. Dolao re. quested that the route be changed to run down Erie avenue to Elm street Qss Quoit Court A.

I will sell, under order Cass Circuit Court, the entire stock of Overcoats formerly the property of Otto Kraus at about half regular- price on a CREDIT OF SIX MONTHS, WITHOUT INTEREST, each garment marked IN RED showing the assignee's price and the former price. The reason of this extraordinary offer is to make room for that, part of the Shoe Stock remaining unsold after March 31st, as the lease of the present quarters expires on that day. I do not want to move a single pair of Shoes, if possible, and; have ordered the Shoe Salesmen to REFUSE NO REASONABLE OFFER. The finest goods are still unsold. A. G. JENKINES. Assignee, P.

Also on account of having but little rock to blast the changed route would be cheaper, and could employ more men owing to having but dirt to remove Instead of rock which composed the principal part of the cut made by running the sowers across the railroads and could not • employ to exceed 15 men while blasting. Also, the changed line would make some difference in the income received after sewers were put in on account of having a great many prop. erty holders that are willing to pay for tapping ft while the original line hae rone of these advantages. Therefore your gower committee acted in recommending the change entirely on a business basis without a thought of self interest in any shape or form and your committee can not help express* Ing a dee Ire in wishing for that time to expire when they can be free from this thankless position of councilman, i to be made the target of every die-j gruntlcd imaginary claim bolder and disappointed politician.
