lie asked that the council take
steps    lo abate the nuisance.
Aid. Patterson thought that Mr.
IvfcCailer was right in his objection, .anl that tlie pound was cert'Tnin*
ly a nuisance when in the city
limits. He thought- it would
he a good idea if it could be
done away with altogether. Let every man come down and buy his dog
tax, or else let him be brought up
in t.he police couri and fined. In
this way it would .do away w-it.li; services of a pound-keeper, and if a mam
did not want to pay his dog .taxes,
he would be obliged to kill his dog
Several other aldermen thought
that something should be'done, and
it was finally moved tJiet the streets

quarters for the dogs where thoy
would i,e away from all private-' residences and be a nuisance to no one.
