to defend a man who lacked sufli- l

vehemently declared, "that theie
were more of the city council here

from this case. I desire to have no
more to do with it in any way."
Whether or not this should lie
taken as a complete resignation is a
matter for argument; but it is a
foregone conclusion, all things con
sidered, that the case will never be
heard. There are many complex
conditions surrounding "the cele
