It was really the wannest baby
of the bunch the tucctintr of the
city council last Monday evening
and "yellow dog" epithets scattered
uiuong the members very carelessly.
Mr. bliiems accused Mr. Lcceett of
bciiiK a liar but Mr. Lorectt kent
his caltnucss very nicely and merely
denied the allegation: and then he
voted with Mr. Shields.
Mayor King presided ami all
members or tue council were
present. On the minutes being
read Mr. Hricc moved to eliminate
that portion mentioning the grant
ing of the license.
The question of 11 "majority of
the council was warmly discussed.
Mr. Peterson asserted that there
were nut six members of the conn
cil Mr. Shields not living here,
lis family miles away, and Mr.
Shields coming to the city only
occasionally as the council met.
It was then suggested that Mr.
eterson "prove it it would cost
lim only another $400" but Mr.
'eterson said lie didn't fear it.
Mr. Hricc joined in the opinion of
Mr. Shields. The opinion of
