ommandors came with their staffs.
Great dignitaries, who once sat in
heaven, were In the conclave, and the
great question discussed was whether
the war should be open or secret. Some
preferred annihilation to pain. Mam

building an empire which would rival

he would carry the battle on alone, and

A resolution concerning the tracks ot

last meeting of select council U the
street railways committee. The word
ing of the resolution Is pecular and Is
construed by certain members of the
committee to be for the purpose of

lay a double track on. Franklin avenue.
Recently the property owners of that
street secured a permanent Injunction

pany "to change Its tracks on Franklin
avenue and at the corner of Spruce
street from the center to the side of the

the lines of the measure there lurks a
point of law which, through the pass.
age of the resolution, will establish the
company's right to maintain two tracks
on that particular street. Unless the

in the county Jail. Durance vile was
not good tot his health and he prom
