The Council has ro. pealed this ordinance,and,as we understand It, haa passed a resolution for tho guidance of city offloials. But this too, is Illegal, according to the Supreme Court's decision. Here is the Court's decision: "In the oase of John L. Adams against tho Board of Education of tho City of Chicago, the court declares against a rule of the board requiring that only union labor shall bo employed by contractors who do work for the board. The court aays that there Is no more reason or justification for such a rule than there would be for a provision that no ono should be employed except members of some particular party or church."

The '-•'jmmisafiry stores taken, he said, were sufllclunt but the medical supplies were inadequate. He had left the loading except for general directions, to the corps commander, General Shatter. He found just before sailing that there were a number of pontoon boats being taken which would be utterly useless for the purpose and he himself had secured two barges from the owners there and had taken other steps, but the supply of such boats taken was very inadequate. "The expedition." he continued, "should have been furnished with launches, naphtha or steam, or tugs, for towing barges from the ships to the shore. We relied largely on the engineer olTlcers and the engineer department for these. In the second expedition to Porto Rico these were furnished but they arrived too late to render much assistance." He said before the first fleet sailed from Tampa estimates had been definitely made of the number of boats to be furnished tjie transports and the number to be furnished tlie navy to assist. The most cordial assistance, he added, had been promised on the part nf the navy. n'y pr re out One of (he Worst Disease? Knr-n 10 is Overcome hy Modern S6< iicc.
