[REPORTED.]
Meeting of the Board of Trustees.
    The Board of Trustees met January 18th, 1867, pursuant to adjournment.
    A full Board present, the President in the Chair. The minutes of the previous meeting read and approved. The committee, to whom was referred the bids received for grading and graveling Oregon Street, etc., made a report, with a condensed statement of the bids on each section. The report was adopted and the committee discharged. After some conversation by members on general matters touching improvements upon streets, Mr. Davis desired the sense of the House be taken on the proposed plan for improving Oregon Street, and offered the following resolution:
    Resolved, That the bids received for grading and graveling Oregon Street, under the specifications, be now awarded to the lowest bidders, as they are reported by the committee.
    The resolution was seconded by Mr. Brentano. Mr. Taylor said he was opposed to the whole scheme, and would vote to reject all bids under the specifications; that he was not opposed to making all necessary repairs upon the street, but did not think that it required, at present, such an outlay, and that under the existing state of our town finances--no money in the treasury--we were not warranted in going on with the work and expending 8 or 9 hundred dollars; that Oregon Street was certainly not in a very bad condition at this time, but if it needed any repair, it could be done at a small expense, and he was not opposed to that. It was no time, he said, to make such improvements as were proposed; the season was unfavorable for such work, and would, of course, increase the expense.
    Mr. Davis wished to know if Mr. Taylor had a right to a seat in this Board, having been absent, at one time, over 30 days, and read from Section 8, Article 2, which provides, "If any officer absent himself for 30 days, or more, without leave of the Board, his office shall be deemed vacant," and he wanted to know if Mr. Taylor could now act here.
    The President explained, by saying that Mr. Taylor had had leave of absence; and that the question ought to have come up at the last meeting, if at all, as Mr. Taylor was then present and acting with the Board, and was appointed one of a committee with Mr. Davis, and they, together, had submitted a report at this meeting, and there could now be no question as to Mr. Taylor's right to his seat.
    No further action was taken on the subject.
    Mr. Taylor, with regard to the resolution, further asked where the money was to come from to pay for this work--8 or 9 hundred dollars.
    Mr. Davis said the contractors were to wait, and we could issue scrip.
    Mr. Taylor did not favor the proposition, and said we came in with 7 or 8 hundred dollars in the treasury, and he did not like to go out 8 or 9 hundred dollars in debt.
    Mr. Davis said sixty citizens had petitioned to have the work done, and this was sufficient to justify the Board; that California Street had been graded and graveled, while Oregon Street had had no work done on it, and everybody could see that it was in bad condition--he zealously urged that the work go on.
    The President said he was opposed to the whole thing, and asked where the money was to come from. He said we could not anticipate the road tax, that was collected and expended by the Street Commissioner, and no part of it ever went into the town treasury, and it would be a long time, with the ordinary receipts of the town, before the debt could be paid; that we were now near the end of our term, and he thought we would not be justified in saddling a debt of 8 or 9 hundred dollars upon the town. You have proposed, he said, to let out on contract, for grading, and graveling over, a tract, a part of which is private property, where you have no street, and where no street was ever laid out or declared; that it was a singular proposition to contract for grading and graveling a street over private property. He did not doubt that the street would be established there, perhaps, before long; but let us have the street before we exercise authority over it. There had been no grade established for any one of the sections, on any part of Oregon Street, and this should done, as it had been on California Street, before graveling. As regarded the sixty petitioners, he knew many of them were opposed to having the work done as proposed; that they were not committed to any such scheme; that to put ten inches of gravel upon [a] section first would raise the street above the sidewalk; that the street was already of a high grade and ought not to be raised at all. He said he had never been in favor of expending all of our money upon the streets of the town, but that we had no money now to expend, and if we had he would be opposed to expending it as proposed.
    The question was taken on the resolution, and resulted as follows: Yeas, Davis and Brentano; nays, Taylor, Miller and Mr. President--this defeated the whole scheme.
    On motion of Mr. Davis, the Board adjourned.

    BOARD OF TRUSTEES.--An adjourned meeting of the Board of Trustees was held on the evening of May 17th.
    Present--D. Linn, President of the Board: J. S. Love, A. Martin and John Orth. Absent--H. Judge. The minutes of the preceding meeting were read and approved. A verbal report was made by the committee, to whom was referred the application of Veit Schutz for a deed to his water-ditch premises, and the application of Dr. Overbeck for a title deed to lots Nos, 5 and 6, in block No. 52. They reported that they had examined the said Schutz' water-ditch premises, and that but a portion of the ditch, or canal, was on the vacant land of the town, and recommended that a right of way, for so much thereof as occupied town lands, be granted to him; and that they had also examined the premises claimed by Dr. Overbeck, and found that he had occupied but a fractional part of the lots claimed, and for that portion actually occupied recommended that a title deed be granted him. The subject was disposed of by granting Veit Schutz a right of way for his ditch, or canal, over lands held by the town, and granting Dr. Overbeck a deed for such part of said lots as actual occupation entitle him to for his present water works--the premises to be ascertained by survey. It was remarked by the President, and other members, that special care should be taken in determining the rights of claimants to these lands, for no rights could accrue to persons after the entry of the land by the town, and the rights acquired by the town, should be held for the use and benefit of the same, to be disposed of to the best advantage.
    The bill of Hopkins & Co., for $37.70 coin, being corrected and properly certified to, was ordered paid.
    The subject came up respecting persons who had applied for title deeds, and for whom deeds were prepared and executed, that yet remained in the Town Recorder's office for non-payment of the assessments. It was suggested that sufficient notice had been given to such--that action be taken in the premises forthwith, and the lots be offered for public sale by the town. No definite action was taken on the subject, and it was referred for further consideration. The Board then adjourned.

SEPTEMBER, 6th.
    A special meeting of the Board of Trustees was held this eve. All the members were present except Mr. Love. The meeting being called to order by the President, Mr. Linn, and the journal of the proceedings of the last meeting read and approved, the President stated that the Board was called together to take some action upon the matter of crosswalks, as it appeared that, although the contract had been awarded, the required bond had not been filed, and the work had not progressed. Mr. Berry, to whom the contract had been awarded, being present, made a satisfactory explanation to the Board, after which the Board amended the specifications for the crosswalks, by specifying that the flagstones to be laid down should be not less than three inches thick, in place of four inches, as originally provided--the contract to be finished in sixty days from this time, and a sufficient bond to be filed. The Board then authorized Mr. Berry to lay a three-foot crosswalk, of flagstone, across Fifth St. from Greenman's to Mensor's corner, as this walk had been omitted. Ordinance 34, to amend Ordinance 33, was passed, reducing the width of sidewalks to six feet on California St., above Third, and on Oregon St., except that part lying between California and Main.
    Ordinance (35) passed, entitling the Town Attorney to the same fees as the Prosecuting Attorney is allowed by law, in prosecutions for misdemeanor, before a Justice of the Peace--in cases of conviction.
    The bills referred to the Finance Committee at the previous meeting were not reported upon.
    A warrant for $25 coin, for the Town Attorney's second quarterly salary, was ordered.
    On motion, Board adjourned.

He stated that the Engine Fund, originally $408, had been increased to $575; that this fund was the several donations of citizens of Jacksonville held in trust by the Town Trustees, and the attention of the new Board was called to the condition upon which the donations were made, the careful guardianship of the fund and never to be diverted from its original object and purpose. He said several ordinances had been passed during the past year, which, he regretted to say, had been treated as a dead letter by those whose duty it was to enforce them, and he particularly recommended that the fire ordinance be strictly enforced during the summer months. His attention had been called, he said, by citizens of the town to the illegal manner of granting liquor licenses, and he respectfully recommended that the ordinance in relation to granting liquor licenses be so amended as to conform with the statute and require applicants to post their notices according to law and otherwise comply with the statute law. After the reading of the same, on motion of Mr. Sachs, it was ordered placed on file.

    CONTRACT LET.--The building committee of the Board of Trustees let the contract for building the new town hall to David Linn for $1,995, he being the lowest bidder by a few dollars. Edwin Smith was the only other bidder. The taking down of the old walls and cleaning out the cellar was let to Peter Brevert for the sum of $125, there being two other bidders. The building is to be completed by the 1st of January next, except the plastering, which is to be done early in the spring. It will be a handsome brick structure, twenty-five feet high, seventy-five feet long and twenty-five feet wide. There will be a council room, a calaboose and a truck house, with a commodious cellar underneath. The architecture will be of the latest and most convenient, and Jacksonville will have a building she may well feel proud of and which would be a credit to much larger places.
Democratic Times, Jacksonville, August 27, 1880, page 3


    TAX LEVIED.--The Board of Trustees, at its meeting last Tuesday evening, levied a tax of 3½ mills on the taxable property of the town, as shown by the assessment roll of the county for 1880. This will raise about $1,000, which will be applied to the construction of the new town hall. Enough will be derived from other sources to help the building toward completion, so that only a slight tax need be levied next year to finish one of the neatest and cheapest pieces of public property in the state.
Democratic Times, Jacksonville, October 1, 1880, page 3


    PETITION DENIED.--The Board of Trustees met Monday evening to consider the petition of a number of our citizens, praying for the construction of another story on the building now being erected by the town authorities, said addition to be used for public hall purposes. No definite information as to its probable cost being at hand, D. Linn, who has the other contract, was requested to approximate the expense and submit a report on the following Wednesday evening, to which time the Board adjourned. At the appointed hour the Trustees reconvened. Mr. Linn, being called upon, gave it as his opinion that the additional cost would be in the neighborhood of $2,400, making the grand total about $4,500, independent of the lot, furnishment of the whole building, discount on scrip, levy and collection of taxes, etc., which would amount to $1,500 more. A majority of the Board deemed the outlay of so great a sum of public money hardly justifiable, denied the prayer of the petitioners and the matter has been dropped for the present.
Democratic Times, Jacksonville, November 12, 1880, page 3


    The Board of Trustees Wednesday evening audited the balance of D. Linn's bill for building the town hall, amounting to $4,195.
"Brief Reference," Democratic Times, Jacksonville, January 21, 1881, page 3


    COMPLETED.--The new town hall was this week turned over to the Board of Trustees by the contractor, David Linn, and was accepted by that body after an inspection of the premises. The building is a neat, commodious one, and will answer all purposes for many years to come. It only lacks painting to make it one of the town's handsomest ornaments, which work will be done in the spring. The structure has a frontage of 23 feet on Main Street and runs back 76 feet on Oregon Street, being fourteen feet high from the foundation. It contains a large council room 46½ feet long, two cells, a truck house, a place for our prospective fire engine, with a first-class cellar underneath. The work has been done in [an] excellent manner and the people of Jacksonville no doubt feel that their money has been well expended by the Building Committee.
Democratic Times, Jacksonville, January 21, 1881, page 3

    The Board of Trustees at the last meeting ordered M. Mensor to take down his hanging sign on the street fronting his store and also to clear his sidewalk of boxes, etc. On the following day all of our merchants were notified to clear their sidewalks of goods, boxes, etc., and our town presents a neater appearance now than ever before. We learn also that an effort will now be made to enforce the Sunday law, preventing merchants from selling goods on that day. What is the use of laws unless they are enforced?

BOARD OF TRUSTEES.
    A regular meeting of the board of Trustees was held at the Town Hall in Jacksonville on Thuesday [sic] evening Oct. 19, 1881. [October 19 was a Wednesday.]
    Present--T. G. Reames, President; J. S. Howard, K. Kubli, E. D. Foudray, P. N. Ficke and J. Nunan, Recorder.
    On motion the following bills were ordered paid and warrants drawn by the Recorder on the Town Treasurer: Bill of Grob & Ulrich for feeding prisoners, $1.25; Times office bill for printing blanks, $3.00; Joe Mensor for killing dog, $1.00, K. Kubli, for sundries, $22.10; Reames Bros., for sundries, $3.25.
    The report of the Street Committee on the bridge across Daisy Creek on California St. was accepted and warrant ordered drawn in favor of J. B. McDaniel, for $10.50, for labor furnished.
    The same committee reported that there is yet due on the building of the Daisy Creek footbridge the sun of $45.50, and it was ordered that half that amount be paid to K. Kubli, said Kubli having advanced that sum for the construction of the bridge.
    The report of the cemetery committee was accepted.
    R. S. Dunlap's quarterly report was accepted.
    The following bills were presented and referred to finance committee: N. Fisher, draping Town Hall, $10.00; Wm. Hoffman, recording deeds, $4.00; A. Helms, lamp wick, 50 cents.

Oregon Sentinel, Jacksonville, October 22, 1881, page 3


    LAW AND ORDER.--The last week has been quite an eventual one in official circles in Jacksonville. On Monday morning Recorder Nunan held a levee which was attended by several young men who made full confession and contributed $20 to the town treasury besides costs. A meeting of the Board of Trustees was called on Monday evening and an order was passed for the employment of a special policeman, but from some reason or other, the present inefficient incumbent of the Marshal's office was not removed. That portion of his salary paid for lighting lamps, directly out of the treasury, is to be paid to the special, and the elected Marshal will be starved out, instead of being put out as he ought to have been long ago. On Tuesday Chas. Schultz was appointed by the President of the council and sworn in. The appointment is an excellent one, as Schultz is no respecter of persons; and those who are now ignorant of it will soon find out their mistake. The new officer is a steady, sober man who will do his duty and, in its discharge, will be backed by the law-abiding citizens of Jacksonville who, at last, are determined that law shall prevail and must be enforced. The day of "hoodlumism" is no longer here and when the boys get used to the new order of things they [will end] their disgraceful [behavior.]
Oregon Sentinel, Jacksonville, December 31, 1881, page 3

    The Board of Trustees are figuring on what the cost of cisterns and an engine will be, with the view of organizing a fire department in this place. This is a step in the right direction, and we hope something will be done this time. The fund now on hand will justify the Board in going ahead and making the necessary expenditures.

    David Linn will take a trip to San Francisco soon on a business visit, and while there he will also make arrangements for securing an engine for our fire  department, the Board of Trustees having given him authority in the matter at their last meeting.

    CITY TRUSTEES.--The Board of Trustees met Tuesday, but transacted little business of importance. The committee on water reported progress, and a warrant for $100 was ordered drawn in its favor.

    The sum of $220 was required to settle the general average business on our new fire engine, occasioned by the stranding of the steamship Queen of the Pacific. The Board of Trustees have drawn an order for the amount.
----
    The Board of Trustees met at the City Hall last Thursday evening when they instructed Recorder Webster to draw up specifications and advertise for bids for the building of four cisterns in the center of town for the use of the fire department. A good supply of water has been obtained on Jackson Creek, and the work of laying pipes and digging cistern wells will soon be commenced. The Board
meets again Oct. 19th, when full arrangements will be made.

    PROGRESSING.--The wooden pipe for carrying water to the fire cisterns has nearly all been completed by David Linn and the work of laying it will soon begin. The Board of Trustees met last evening for the purpose of making arrangements for the digging of cisterns and it will not be long before our fire department is complete. No date has yet been set for the transfer of the engine to the fire company.

Oregon Sentinel,
Jacksonville, October 20, 1883, page 3


    BAD MOVE.--In our opinion the Board of Trustees made a bad move at their last meeting when they resolved on only building two cisterns for the fire department. At least four should have been ordered built, and no one will refuse Jacksonville scrip at par if money is not on hand at present, as the liquor licenses alone bring in a revenue of $2,600 a year, much more than is required to run the business of the town. No locations for the cisterns have yet been made, but when once decided numerous people are bound to be dissatisfied with their location.

    The election for town officers will be held on Tuesday next, but as there is no contest for any of the offices little interest is taken and a light vote can be looked for. Usually there is great strife between several candidates for the office of Marshal, but as Mr. Curtis has filled this office so acceptably to all, no one has appeared to run against him and he will have a walk-over. For the office of Recorder we have heard of two candidates, G. A. Hubbell and the present incumbent, J. H. Huffer, but as the perquisites of that office are so small we don't expect much of a fight there. For the office of Trustee it seems to be hard to find
five men willing to take the place.
