The city solicitor has said that If coun

that the contract was awarded, and
that it Is one to be easily remedied; but
If the city doesn't pay attention to this
matter the costs will he placed on the
citizens. Tlie councils don't know what

character, and 1 can't see why th"
city solicitor doesn't appear to answer
to this injunction. The matter has
been In select council for several weeks
and hothinj has been done about it.
Hut select council Is not the only body
that is duitiK; business for the people;
the common council has as much rlKht.
and It Is as much its duty, to take ac

city solicitor to be hero to instruct or

with noticeable limitless;
"Wo ought, lo have the city solicitor's
