said in part:
Tonight by the festal board where the
goddess of plenty has lavished upon her
chosen ones the treasures of her cornuco
pia, we gather to do homage to our tlod
and country. We sit where no poisoned
wine sparkles In the liiilit of a thousand
Humes. Instead, with one accord und
bound by the ties of common faith, we
revel lu a feast of reusun u:id a flow of
soul. About our Icinquct board we know
no cisle. Tonight we realise, the foroe
of that declaration which Is founded upon
the leachigs of divine truth. I" mm that
truth springs the fountain head of Justice.
That Justice which has Its seat in the
bosom of God. That Justice which can bp
administered only to free ami equal beings.
To uphold und protect these cherished
principles which perpetuate the fame und
glory uf our country Is the birthright or
each succeeding generation of our Amerl
canpcoplc. Itorn umlerthefoldsof a banner
which has been consecrated by the blood
of martyrs and of heroes and blesued by
of lust prayer of the humblest soldier on
the field of battle our duty to our coun
try's cause becomes Imperative. No voice
must prompt but the voice of duty. We
need no battle cry to arms.

JUDGE SITS UPON A TACK.
Law Students uf Missouri I'nivrrsity
Likely to Lose Diplomas.
Columbia, Mo., May 21. Who put the
tack In Judge Martin's chair Is the
question which Is being asked vei;y
seriously by the senior law students of
Missouri university. Judge Alexander
Martin Is denn of the law department.
Recently a law student nut u tack In
his chair, which caused him much pain
nnd indignation, and he is sparing no
efforts to find the culprit.
It Is his belief that the members of
the senior class could, If they desired,

It was expected that there would be

There was to have been a joint con
vention to select a board to examine
applicants for the ofllce of building in
spector. Select council was to have
considered the Monroe avenue paving
contract, and the appointment of John
Fltzsimnions as patrolman to be even
tually captain of police. Common
council also might have had some more
fun over the minutes relating to the re
consideration of the paving contract,
as there was lots of tight left In the out

The determination of the Republican
majority of the upper branch to call a
halt to Mayor Halley's policy of cold
blooded removals, and an Injunction
from court. Issued at the instance of
the Barber Asphalt company, restrain
ing the city executive and legislative
otticers from further consideration of
the Monroe avenue contract, account
for the disappointments.
THE REPt'RLICANS' INJUNCTION.
Not a single Republican selectman
put in an appearance at city hall. A
caucus had been held and It was mu
tually agreed to refrain from attending
the meeting and thereby prevent the
Joint session. They believed that the
muyor should not remove John Nelson,
the present Inspector, until his term ex
pires, which will be May 10, 1897, unless
he deserves removal from Incompetency
or some breach of duty, which no one
will drre accuse him of. As It was to
be a purely partisan removal, the Re
publlans concluded that the present
was as good a time as any to take a
determined stand against the adminis
tration's bad policy, and they took It.
The ten Democrats were on hand and
so were John Fltzsimnions and a couple
of Demociatlc builders. who looked very
much like seekers after Nelson's berth.
They could do nothing but sit around
and praise things, and this they did for
about half an hour, when thing of the
employment, the Democratic ten went

contract to Dunn Brothers by common
council wus Irregular und Illegal und

tion of the lower branch yreat and ir
reparable Injury would be done the
complainant. After reciting the action
or common council by which the con
tract was tukeu away from the Barber
company und given to Dunn Brothers,
the petition goes on to suy that council's
action was illegal; llrst, because It
went trom tne eighth to the third order
of business without the necessary two
thirds vote as required by section 2 of Its
rules: "lo rule shall be susuended ex
cept by a two-thirds vote"; second,
because the motion to reconsider the
award was made and seconded bv
members who had voted In the minority.
wiucn is aiso an lnmneeinent or the
rules: third, because Dunn Brothers
railed to prove that they would use
pitch lnke asphalt as required by the
specifications and further that thev
have had no experience In the laying of
asphalt pavement. Further compluint
is made that as the awardimr of the
contract to Dunn Brothers Is lllegul and

and no legal or binding asscssmentn
