But little business of a public character was transacted.
A resolution was adopted directing the Committee
on Police to inquire into the expediency of reporting an ordinance empowering the Mayor
, for sufficient cause, to have before him any person who may have only been a resident of the city for the past twelve months, and cause them to give bond, with sufficient security, conditioned for good behavior during their stay.
Other measures, looking towards the good order of the city, were adopted, and the Council adjourned.
