: Thia refers to a provision of the flrat

the lord lieutenant from any county in

to the electors In the following form?
' "Are you in favor of exclusion from
the operation of the Oovcrnment of Ire

While Mr. Lloyd George Was declar

boldly 'admitted all of the charge of

that he secured all the fees and: aide
profits within bis reach, .that be super

ia doing so because tho city that em
ploy him haa no right to regulate hi
private business affair. ..
Apparestly even the supervisors were
surprised at this line ot defense; for
they took no action and deferred a
decision until this evening. At that
Jme it will be definitely derided wheth
