CITY COUNCIL MEETING.
Contract Let for Waterworks Well.
Salary Ordinance Again.
The council met Monday evening-with all
members present except Olds, whose resig-
nation was presented and accepted. T. J.
Brooks was elected to the council from the
fourth ward to fill the vacancy caused by
the resignation of Walter Olds.
The bids for digging the new well for the
waterworks were opened, and the bid of T.
J. Tuttle, being nearly $1,000 less than any'
of the others, was accepted, and the con-
tract was awarded to him at $587.
The question of the salary ordinance
bobbed up again at this session of the coun-
cil. It seems that when Mayor Collar
returned the ordinance with his veto he
failed to present his objections in writing,
as the statutes provide he should do. The
veto, however was recognized by the coun-
cil, and the ordiriance was referred back
to thes orcfinance committee and was turned
over to them. The city clerk, who didn't
like to see the $10 raise in his salary dis-
appear so silently, failed to make any rec-
ord of the mayor's refusal to sign the ordi-
nance or of its reference to the committee
or of the fact that he had delivered the or-
dinance into their hands. The city attor-
ney, who was also more interested in get-
ting an increase of salary than in protecting
the interests of ihe city, advised the city
clerk that they could claim that technically
the ordinance became a law by the failure
of the mayor to veto it in writing, and
thereupon the city clerk proceeded to pub-
lish the ordicance. The minutes of the
council show nothing whatever in regard to
the matter. The new ordinance does not
repeal the old one, and we now have two
salary ordinances in force, if it is consider-
ed that the last ordinance is really in effect.
On motion of G. E. Penn the Publicist
was awarded the contract for the city print-
ing. * .

Euchee creek slowly opened his mouth dur-

Chicago. Then all the grass on the ground
and the leaves on the trees dried up. There
was no water in the springs and creeks and
j rivers. Many birds, rabbits, and other ani-
j mals perished, and all the Ozaukees would
j have died of thirst and hunger if "they
I hadn't moved on the western shore of
| Micigan lake, where they had plenty water,
and eat nothing but fish for eleven months."
A Big Business.
j Very few people realize what a big busi-0
: ness is being done by the hustling cigar
j man of Chandler, J. Bart Foster. From
July 1, 1900, to July 1, 1901, the total
number of cigars sold by his factory was
294,887 and the total number manufactured
during that period was 305,102. He paid
to the government for revenue the sum of
$1,134.36, and paid out to his workmen
during the same period $2,300. Mr.
Foster's rapidly growing business, is proof
of the excellence of the goods he manufac-
tures, and his factory may justly be reckon-
ed one of the solid institutions of Chandler.
