There was a hot time at the council meeting again last night. Dr. Hattery started the fire aud the Re- publ lean majority did the sweating. The fun opened when an ordinance was introduced regulating the erection of telephone, telegraph and other such poles in the city, and delegating executive authority to the street committee and electric light committee. Dr. Hattery attacked the ordinance on the ground that the mayor alone, as chief executive of the city, had the authority to order a compliance with the requirements of an ordinance.

This assertion was questioned by Mr. Haigh, but Dr. Hattery called for the records, which showed, that no less than three petitions had been referred to the electric light committee, and the committee had not reported. This was a crusher to Haigh, who lost his temper and beat the air in a frantic manner.

His parents are very respectable people, who have endeavored to bring him up in the ways of righteousness, but all to no avail, as he seems to delight in bad associates. Upon promises of reforming his conduct in the future Mayor McKee continued his case this morning. AUDITION 4L ITEMS. See Traat's free machine. Country butter 12tc ID.—Foley.
