Ca :eJ meeting1 of the Board Vf
The board of aldermen held a called
meeting in the mayor's office Monday
aiternoon at which were present
Mayor Smith, and Aldermen Miller,
S'o.t, Wilson, Sanders, Weddington,
Butler, Moore, Xisbet and Dowd.
A petition was read from F. W.
Ahrens asking to be allowed to remove
his planing mills from the present
location to the rear of his dwelling on
The petition was on motion laid over
till the next meeting for consideration.
Alderman Scott called attention to
the occasional habit of aldermen sign
ing petitions when not in meeting,
protesting against the practice on the
ground that the members of the board
ought to be untrammelled and that the
only effect of such signing was to
deceive tha petitioner as the alderman
could not afford to allow themselves to
be governed by what they had done
outside the meeting.
Petitions for the location of kerosene
lamps on the corner of E and Stonewall
streets, corner of First and E streets,
comer of Second and E streets and on
Morehead street, between Tryon and
the railroad, were granted and the
street commissioner was ordered to
It was i ordered on petition that the
dwelling house of Mrs. Huneycutt on
First street be moved so as not to
interfere with the street line.
The committee appointed at the last
meeting to propose a plan for improv
ing the sidewalks with the sum of
$1,000 which was appropriated for the
purpose, reported, favoring the idea
that the improvements should be of a
permanent character. They suggested
that the sidewalks most in need of
repair should be improved with sub
stantial curbing filled in with gravel or
The mayor then read the charter in
reference to constructing sidewalks,
and the subject was discussed at some
Finally the board decided to desig
nate the streets on which it was
necessary that work should be done,
and it was ordered that the clerk issue
forthwith notices in writing to the
owners of property lying on Trade,
Tryon and College streets within the fol
lowing limits: Tryon, from Fourth to
Fifth ; Trade, from the North Carolina
Railroad to Church street; College
street from Fourth to Fifth, that
unless they proceed, withiri the next
thirty days to lay sidewalks in front of
the property, of brick, Portland cement
or dressed stone, with curbing of good
rock in which event the city will pay
one half of the cost of the same, the
board, will by authority confered in
section 23 of the city char- er, proceed to
put down pavements on said streets.
Alderman Dowd offered the follow
ing which was adopted:
Whereas, There are many old
dilapidated wood buildings within the
fire limits of this city, that are so com
bustible that they are liable to take fire
at any time and produce disastrous
Resolved, That a committee of three
be appointed to examine and report as
to how many and what buildings
within the fire limits are in such a con
dition as to endanger other property,
with a view to having the same con
demned, by proper legel proceedings
and that they report at the next meet
ing. The mayor reported for the considera
tion of the board the case of Philo
Reed, colored, who was injured in the
discharge of his duties as fireman, on
the night of the 25th of December, and
on motion it was ordered that his
vvaces as a strett laborer be paid until
he is again able to work. Adjourned.

We ara indebted to Maj. Wm. A,
Ilearne, who has been on a tour of ex
amination, for the Raleigh Observer, to
the head of the Western North Caroli
na Railroad, for the following informa
tion on the progress of that work:
There remains to be removed, before
the roadway is graduated for the track,
about five thousand cubic yards of
earth, and this consists almost entirely
ot land-slides that have iaiien in on the
road-bed. If no further slides occur the
roadway will be ready for the track to
the mouth of the Swannanoa tunnel in
two weeks more. All the temporary and
permanent trestle work is done on the
mountain section except one, a hundred
and fifty feet long, and another of about
eaual lensrtb. nearly finished, and both
will be completed in a week.
In the Swannanoa tunnel there re
mains a hundred and fifty lineal feet
of the headinc to be taken out before
davliffht is let through. Then the bench
for two hundred and fifty feet, taken
out, will complete the big tunnel. They
are progressing at the rate or twenty
five feet a week with the heading, and
the whole can be completed in from six
weeks to two months. As soon as the
track-layuig reaches the Swannanoa
tunnel, a tramway.will be laid on the
bpneh. and iron transported through on
it. and four miles of track laid on the
marl-bed now ready on the western
slope, toward Asheville, and by the time
the oath ran uass through the tunnel
there will be six or seven miles of track
laid in Buncombe, so that by the 1st or
middle of March passengers and freight
can be transported at Stepp's House, m
the neighborhood of Black Mountain
Station. " ' '
T?ottra, r entertained, however, o:
fiivfhpr sliriinc as a movement has been
going on for a year past involving five
or six acres of mountain side at Mud
Cut, and the track has several times
been open onlv to fill up again. The
work already done on land slides in the
mountain section would, it is said, have
graded the road to Asheville. But if
the cars are once got to running through
the sliding cuts, the force of hands will
be able, with the help of the construc
tion train, to keep the roadway open.
The work of grading is progressing
quite rapidly beyond the ridge on to
ward Asmpville. and once across the
1 mountain there are no serious obstruc
tions in the way of a satisiactory pro

The executive committee of Mecklen
burg Countv Bible Society held its reg
ular monthly meeting yesterday in the
lecture room of the First Presbyterian
church. Mr. J. Duls was chosen chair
man, and Gen. John A. Young secre
tary. The report of Dr. F. Scarr, colporteur
of the society, was presented, read and
approved by the committee.
The report stated that Dr. Scarr had
been in the employ of the society for
59 days, during which he had canvassed
the north W estern half of Mecklen
burg county, it being all that portion of
the county tying between the Catawba
river and the lines of the North Caro
lina and the Charlotte, Columbia &
Augusta Railroads. That he had sup
plied 242 destitutions by donations of
the Scripture, and had sold $91.53 worth
of Bibles and Testaments, and that
this portion of the couuty is now sup
plied with the Bible, leaving the south
eastern half of the"county and the city
of Charlotte yet to be canvassed.
Dr. Scarr's , business engagements re
quiring him to discontinue his labors in
the interest of this society Jthe commit
tee reluctantly accepted his resignation
The committee then proceeded to elect
a colporteur to lill the vacancy occa
sioned by Dr. Scarr's withdrawal, which
resulted in the selection of Rev. W. S.
Haltom. Mr. Haltom will commence
the canvass and suddIv of the citv of
Charlotte immediately, and after it is
completed will turn his attention to
the uncanvassed portion of the county.
j.ne rjioie society besneaK lor him a
kind reception and a cordial co-opera
tion on the part of the good people of
Mecklenburg county which the society
nas no aouot will be accorded him.
A committee consisting of Messrs. W.

Help for the Poor.
In response to the suggestion recent
ly made in The Observer that some
thing be done to aid those people of the
city who are suffering from hunger
and cold during this trying weather, a
gentleman has placed in our hands the
sum of $50 with which to begin a sub
scription to this humane cause. At his
suggestion the amount will be placed
in the hands of the mayor to be dis
tributed by him in whatever manner
may be deemed best adapted to accom
plish the end in view. There is un
questionably suffering irrthe communi
ty among the poor of both r aces, and it
must be a pleasure to all thoughtful
people to hear that a step has been
taken for their relief a beginning has
been made, for this renders certain the
fact that the poor are to be helped to
some extent at least Other persons
will be sure to follow this contribution
by others, which, if not so liberal, will
greatly help those in distress.
The Observer will gladly receive
all funds designed for this purpose and
turn them over to whomsoever directed.
