He' wanted Mayor WJloy to toll him

that ho had asked (or and rocolvod
Mr, Hllton'a resignation and It wu
submitted to tho council last Mon

Kot uilo act Upon It?" demanded tho
councilman from tho fifth. Whal.thn
mayor' answer would havo been rd
malm a mystery, for Uogerdus mov
od that llio resignation bo accepted.
t noemtng to loso sight of tho fact that
It , wa no moro before tho council
then than It wai u wook ago, Evident
ly'lt was thought thlfl wa a poor In
atrumont with which to jlln tho holo
thcah counclltnon want to put tho
mayor In, o docldod to postpone tho
taak for a more propltloua raomont.
Hut Volmor was out with hla war

to hla discomfiture, a well a to the

Hut Ilka tho ghost of old. Volmor
