tho citizens to .considor tho advisability of

It is with "profound grief, sorrow and

meeting) that tho Herald announces its
inability to dovoto epaco to an extended
report of tho mooting, on tho quostion for

assoniblago of citizens the mooting "might

bent over and drank in tho words of
wisdom from tho pen of M. J. Lawlor, a
eoriospondont of the Sunday iVeij.
Meanwhile Councilman Archio Lsmb
attracted tho attention of tho mooting by
moving that a committeo of five bo ap
pointed to act in conjunction with tho com

Tho motion was carried and tho chairmnn

secretary of tho meeting and tho oditor of
tho Sunday Kews.

against tho ruling, but tho chairman
answered, "1 havo doclnrod tho resolutions

tho railway company should bo givon a
chance to be hoard."
Tho sentiment of tho mooting turned
almost unanimiously in favor of tho rail
way company when tho citizens fully
