orderly mnnner, and no violent re

with the deliberations of the city
guardians. The little edifice was
filled to overflowing and the door
and windows were packed with
faces eager to hear the proceedings
of the august body. Interest cen

going to take regarding the ques
tion that has been agitating the
public mind more or less since he
received his appointment as post
master. Many had contended that
an individual could not legally

Treasurer Hall was present with
his little hatchet, and stated that he
understood several hundred dollars
had been received by the recorder
and paid out by the same source
without the treasurer receiving n
record of the transactions. He said
that it was a difficult matter for him
to keep books when he did not
know how much was received and
paid out. Council ordered that
hereafter all monies received for the
city must pass into the treasurer's
