the Judge said "appears regular" A further reason adduced why there ought to bo a reconsideration of the vote Is that Mr Tansey is a resident of Outremont and that the law declares such commissioners

from the minutes of ihs City Council on April 10 HIT shows Just what action Aid Msnard took In regard to his taking taking no pur la council meetings: "Alderman Menard rose to a question of privilege

Council Ho added that ha would only attend monthly msetlnge until a final Judgment haa bean rendered on tha proceedings taken against him In connection with Investigation on Bordeaux Ward sewers" It may be explained that the Article IT referred to concern aldermen being disqualified If they were absent from meetings of ouncil for more than two months It was deemed necessary by Aid Menard to make his motion because of tha ease that was against him In the courts and which might consume considerable time Col Gregory Record Recruiter Visits Montreal Honorary CpL W T Gregory of Leamington Ont who

Martin "doesn't tha Government put an embargo on wheat the way other countries doT It is entirely up to tho Government" STIRRED AT BAKERS Alderman Larlvlere had two remarks to make One waa that II had been stated when the bakers had appeared before the Legislation Committee that there was no harmony amongst them "And yet” he mid "they all put their prices up tha name day although they had told us
