The Anderson Case May
Bring Up Several
The city council met in regular
session last night with Mayor Call in
the chair and the following members
present: Aldermen Scales, York,
Bates, Clopton, Woods and Johnson,
Auditor Burgess, Marshal Stewart,
Recorder Jetfers, Attorney Mays,
Tax Collector Robinson, Engineer
Elliott and Street Overseer Henry.
After the minutes were read and
approved, Mayor Call called for re-
ports of standing committees. Alder-
man Johnson for the fire committee
reported the purchase of the new
fire team and stated that • he had
agreed to pay $275 for it if it proved
good after a ton days' trial.
The sanitary committee reported
the purchase of a carload of brick to
be used in making repairs at the
A complaint against the hide-house
on Ninth Street between Sixth and
Seventh Avenues was read and the
matter was referred to the health
officer. The disagreable odors of the
hides caused the complaint.
Then came the first big gun. The
mayor read his veto of the ordinance
which exempts the refinery front tax-
ation. The reasons for this veto
were set forth at length, as published
in these columns yesterday, for the
mayor wanted to go on record as
being unalterably opposed to the
measure and Alderman Clopton stood
Hon. Geo. T. Jester stated that he
was one of the committee, which
voted to have the refinery included
in the city lim>ts, and he asked per-
mission to address the council. Per-
mission was given and he made a
strong, earnest and forcible talk, de-
claring the proposed ordinance abso-
lutely unjust and showing that the
refinery received municipal protection
and that it should pay for it just as
does the poor man who resides with-
in the limits.
Alderman Woods 'moved that the
ordinance be passed over the mayor's
veto and the motion was carried, all
the aldermen voting for it, except
Alderman Ben M. Clopton who stood
fast in behalf of the city.
When the ordinance was passed
excluding the refinery, another was
passed compelling the citizens to buy
oil. This was the anti-mosquito or-
dinance which provides that oil must
be put on standing water and that
citterns, barrels, etc. must be screen-
Other ordinances were passed, one
fixing the poundkeeper's fees, one
prohibiting the bridging of gutters,
drains and ditches except under di-
rection of the street overseer, and
one adopting the revised statutes.
All of these ordinances were gb'en
fully in these columns in the last
Then came the next big gun. At
last meeting the council appointed
a committee to ascertain if the city
had any legal right to allow the An-
derson compress platform.to remain
in the unused part of East Tenth
Avenue next to the H. & T. C. tracks
and this committee reported last
night that the city had no such
In behalf of the compress, Judge
Frost addressed the council and
showed that this avenue had never
been opened, that there was abso-
lutely no use for an avenue there,
that before the compress occupied it
a stockyard had been operated there
without molestation, that a commer-
cial quarrel had caused the question
to be agifated, and that without
claiming any title to it the compress
asked permission to remain there a
He showed that the cotton factory
occupied avenues and that the base-
ball park obstructed the same avenue
that the compress did. He stated
that it was useless to move the cot-
ton mill or ball park and likewise use-
less to move the compress, as these
avenues were not needed and that
their present occupancy injured no
Hon. R. E. Prince argued that the
city would have no right to demand
this property in the future if it al-
lowed the compress to remain. The
council has fully decided that it can-
not lease, sell or rent any portion of
these unopened avenues, so the com-
mittee's report was adopted, making
it necessary, if it hopes to be consist-
ent in any degree, to open the ave-
nue which passes directly through
the handsome cotton factory and also
the oue in which the baseball grand-
stand is built.
The baseball management had per-
mission to occupy this avenue, and it
is not dreamed of for a moment that
the cotton mill will be torn down, so
this is the proposition which con-
fronts the council.
If the new compress remains in the
street after the court has awarded
the judgment to the city, the old
compress people can claim they have
not had a fair deal. If the new com
press is moved, its management can
claim that it occupied an unused ave-
nue and that favoritism caused it.
Of course the council must hew to
the line, giving justice to all sides
and even the administration of jus-
tice will work a hardship somewhere.
Upon motion of Alderman Woods,
a committee was appointed to inves-
tigate what streets and avenues are
thus obstructed and in the meantime
the mayor is instructed to execute
the writ which moves the compress,
so it is natural to be supposed that
all these avenues will be opened.
Aldermen Woods, Clopton and
Scales were appointed to make the
investigation and this committee may
have a hard job reconciling matters,
for everybody knows they have more
sense than to attempt the destruction
of the cotton mill by running a street
The subjecj of delinquent taxes
was brought up by Mr. Woods who
stated that $15,000 was due the city
from this source ar.d without discus-
sion the matter was placed in charge
or a committee, 'composed of Alder-
men Woods, Johnson and York.
Alderman York, who had just vot-
ed to exempt the refinery from taxa-
tion, arose and said: "1 do not favor
one man paying taxes and another
not paying them. 1 want everybody,
who has a dog, to pay a tax on it."
So, after a discussion as to how some
people tie their dogs when the dog-
catcher is in their neighborhood, he
made a motion to have an ordinance
brought in, making it a penal of of-
fense to own a dog and not pay taxes
In order to set the city court
right before the higher courts, the
council then went, into the election

and the following were chosen:

Recorder, Elmo Jeffers.
Clerk, Cant. J. D. ('lark.

THE SUMMER HALT.
THE retail merchant in all lines of business has pondered over the idea of "SUM-
MEN DULLNESS," and has worked upon his imagination so much with the "HYP-
NO ! in SUGGES T"ION" that there is no such thing as summer business, until the
imagined condition is almost a reality. THERE is no logical reason why this state
of affairs should exist. There is no sensible reasoning that will justify the retailer in
dropping the reins, throwing up his hands, sliding down in an easy chair and yield-
ing to the supposedly inevitable halt of about three monthsl OF course summer
dullness is a fact to a certaih extent, but not to the extreme that the retailer's imag-
ination makes it.
