Three members of the Common Council resign

Three of the members of the common council have become tired and disgusted with the kicks and knocks and onerous duties connected with their respective offices and have filed their resignations with the city clerk, Elias Peterson, the three being Supervisor C. M. Hunt and Aldermen E. Bowen and Elmer Rossman. The straw that broke the camel's back seems to have been the action of the council at its last meeting in allowing a bill of F. W. Anderson for $13.40, which was the balance of a bill of $38.40 which had previously been cut by the council to $25, it happening that both Mr. Bowen and Mr. Hunt were absent from the meeting, the former being out of town. As it requires four to do business in the council it would seem that city affairs will be at a standstill as now there is not even enough to accept the resignations of those resigning or select new men to fill their places.
