The council, last night, served a tart notice on the board of public works notifying them that they should obey the lawful orders of the council. The resolution was passed by a unanimous vote. The discussion was started by Aid. Martin", who called attention to. the extremely disgaceful condition of the streets. Aid. Manly found fault with the inventory furnished by the board of public works. Therewere no lamps mentioned in the inventory. The whole of the main sewer had been built and not a single lamp, not a single wheelbarrow, only two plows, only thirty-one Out of a hundred jackscrews purchased. The board of public works didn't feel like doing anything the council directed. The council had held two meetings and directed the board to build a dog pound. They hadn't done it. Aid. Prettyman was glad to agree with the aldermen from the fifth occassionally. He didn't see why the board did not go ahead. Manly then introduced a resolution instructingthe board of public works to obey the resolution of the council relating to the building of a dog pound, and asking them, in case they did not obey the resolution, to present their resignation at the next meeting of the council. The yeas and nays were called for and the resolution passed unanimously.
