4' Track Near Passenger Station Must Be Taken Up Says City Council. Also Ordered to RetainFlagmen at Poplar and Sprvee •Street Crossings. The Canadian Northern railway will not comply with an order of the city council to remove the spur track near its passenger depot on Lake Boule­ vard without a fight. Its contention is that it is within the rights of its franchise in maintaining the spur track at its present location and the order of the council will probably re­ ceive no attention. The removal of the spur track was ordered on the representation of Lake boulevard property owners who de­ clared it a nuisance because switch engines were allowed to stand on it all night and the smoke from them be­ grimed adjoining residence property and for the further reason, that the noise of escaping steam and carmen making repairs rudely disturbed their slumbers. The track has been used to park pri vate cars, by switch engines from the West Virginia yards during the switchmen's lunch hours and in mak­ ing switches on passenger trains. The Canadian Northern holds that its franchise does not give it the right to construct spur tracks for freight service but that it has a right to maintain the spur to facilitate the handling of its passenger trains. In the meantime orders have been issued that switch engines must not stand near the depot. There were rumors of injunction proceedings Tuesday, but local officials were non-committal fur­ ther than to say that the removal of the spur track would considerably in­ convenience them. The Canadian Northern was also ordered to keep crossing watchmen at the Poplar and Spruce street cross­ ings at Tuesday night's meeting. It is held that the unguarded condition of these crossings is a menace to the public safety. ALDERMEN RETURN FROM ST. PAUL MEETING Aldermen Boylan and Moilan re­ turned Saturday evening from St. Paul, where they had been to attend the meeting of the state municipal league, its first annual convention. There was a large attendance and an interesting discussion of the public utilities bill. Both. Mr. Boylan and Mr. Moilan are of the belief that the new organization is going to be a big aid to the economical and efficient gov- erament of Minnesota towns and cities if the advantages it offers in the way of information covering practically every pluuie of municipal affairs are taken advantage of. ALL LIGHT SERVICE WILL GO ON METER At a meeting of the water and light board Monday afternoon it was decided to put all .the light service from the municipal lighting plant on meters hereafter. Meters will be in­ stalled as soon as possible where they are not already in place. How to han­ dle the peak load at the electric light plant was another problem before the board. Extensions of the lighting service are going on at the rate of about 30 meters a month and during the winter months the local plant will be taxed to its capacity. Arrange­ ments will probably be made with the Vir ginia & Rainy Lake company or the St. Louis Power company to carry the extra load. BUILDING PUMPING STATION NEAR MARBLE Axel Carlson, formerly desk ser­ geant at police headquarters, but who resigned his position a short time ago, was in the city Monday from Marble for a visit with his family. Mr. Carlon has the contract for building anew pumping station at the Hill annex mine at Marble. Four boilers will make up the equipment of the plant, It will be used as a pumping station for the present, until the development of the annex begins. It will be work ed in all probability as an open cut but it is not yet definitely decided when it will be stripped. The erec­ tion of the pumping station is regard ed as a move toward its early develop­ ment by the Great Northern Ore Prop erties company. LEASES LAND FOR FOX FARM. Tower News: H. W.

This system of drawing municipal court juries is made necessary and provided for by a law passed at the last session of the Minnesota legisla­ ture. It had been quite overlooked in Virginia until Attorney Joseph Austin demanded a jury trial for ex-Game Warden Wood, when he was arrested for interfering with an officer a short time ago. Wood demanded a jury trial and it was then developed that no jury had been drawn and it was necessary to dismiss the case against him. Jurors so drawn must serve for a term, of six months. Only those actu­ ally serving on a jury are entitled to receive compensation.

O'Dea is sure he has the right anwer pegged and that he will be among the fortunate ones. "What does a lawyer do when he dies?" "That's easy," said O'Dea. "He lies still." Artie is confident he is right be­ cause he says its the truth and you can't beat that for any price.

Thirty had been ordered installed Monday evening. The Western Union fur­ nishes the clocks and corrects the time daily for a small sum and the service has become very popular with busi­ ness people the country over. A simi­ lar service has recently been installed at Hibbing.
