There is some question, as to whether the resolution will operate legally but it wns generally agreed that such a measure would give the city clerk informal authority at least to accept surely bonds until the ordinance can be amended.

It was pointed out that by use of a clause allowing IOCRJ residents to enter business without (ieuosiling ¥200 but only by payment cf the regular license lee the ordinance had been evaded. Instances in which out of town parlies were said lo have entered business here since passage of the ordinance by using local residents as the nominal but actually entirely uninterested principal parties were citert.
