last night under the strcrg arguments

settled. The decision had been not to
touch on anything of a political nature,
and of eonrse it was UrictJy adhered to;
not merely touching, but resting there
before they got through. It really
l oked as if it might be a genuine case
of 16 against 1 when the matter was
ummed up and it wa found that one
side largely outnumbered the other, but

one apeaiser declined and then it was
more evenly divided, although from the
nature of the debate one could have
withstood any number.
The city hall was well filled to listen
to the speakers w ho had chosen as their
subject "Resolved, That the fre coin

of 16 to 1 would better promote the
