they were unable to dp so.
A. W. Houston waa next called on
and refused. '
Bergstrom was also called upon with
a like result.
A spectator excitedly got up and said

and Schrelner said In regard to the Nat
Lewis uam mat me proprietors Iiau re-
ceived permission from the city and as
Bolton said It was understood that the
llerrltt dam was to allow sufficient water
to flow to prevent a nuisance. He did
not know whether the promise of -Mr.
Merrltt had been complied wltb. He
thought the Laux dam should be re-
moved and other portions of the river
deepened In order to allow a free flow
of water. He thoueht It would be a
disadvantage to the city to destroy tbe
Merrltt dam though he believed that
proper nooa gates snouiu oe put in to
give a free flow of water at tbe place.
Smye said he did not believe In taking
one dam out and not tho others. He
wanted a general sweep or nono at all.
Lockwood said tbe city had permitted
Merrltt to erect bis dam and he did not
see bow they were going to get It out.
He did not think the dams a very serious
objection. He moved that the whole
matter be referred to the Board of
Pauly declared that ample provision
bad been made to flush the river at Mer-
rltt's dam. The Board or Health had
said the dams were not detrimental to
publlo health aad I do not for one pro-
pose to go back on that decision.
Schrelner said It was no use for the
city to try and reroke the rights and
privileges they had granted to these
Story then made a lengthy speech
against tbe Merrltt dam and all other
dams In tbe river. He regarded the
question aa of more Importance than any
other which tbe Council has ever been
called on totackle and declared that the
river was a perfect quagmire for three-
auarters of a mile below the Merrltt
am and be hoped the Council would
not pass over It lightly.
Pauly asked Story It there were not
flood gates In the Merrltt dam. He
knew there bad been when he had made
Story said there were two there but
they were never raised.
Hambleton gave It as his opinion that
If tbe flood gates were kept open at tbe
Merrltt dam the river current would be
sufficiently Urge hi the bend of thu river.
Belknap asked what was tho motion
before the Council.
The Mayor said the matter was open
for free discussion.
Lockwood said he did not like to con-
sume so much tltio on the dam question
but would say that If tho flood gates
were kept opes thero would not be
force enough. We want manufactories
ca our river nnd ve aro now putting
ourselves on record as being opposed to
datas In our river. He believed the
only dam which had a bad Influence cn
tbe river was the Lewis dain. He re-
newed bis motion to refer to the Board
of Health and tbe City Engineer.
Smve opposed such a course for the
reason that the Board aeted on It once
before but had kept It In stutue quo lor
six months and the present City Engi-
neer had acqdlesced in the present re-
port before the Council.
Mavor French deprecated action at the
