downward, enters the hollow cham

large irtiuibers. Many of the hogs die
bsforo becoming fat enough to kill.
Those foitunato enough to thrive npon
the unwholesome food are slaughtered
and sold to citv blltchera. The n-rk

That iti right to vend aas in the citv

clear. That i s powes and privilt!ge(j
innomenner depend nn tho will or
confent of the Taxing I strict. That
the laxing U.s'rit't has no pewer to
grant a franchise or enlarge corpora e
powers which are not eic'u-ive so es
to make ttem exrlurive. Nor has
it any power to deny to complain
ant all light! grantad by ita
charter. Complainant now shows
that tne lexing District, undor
its present ru ers, is arg.essive, d
nant and bold to the verge of reck
lessness in the aes-iition and exerciue
of what it conceives to be its powers,
That its powers era etraicht d and its
authoriiy abusad at the expense of in
dividuals or corpora ion?, claiming
rights or powers that rra i::conbietnt
with its views of public policy and
what it conceives to bo for the general

for the law of the land and bear down
the clear rights of individuals and cor
porations by sheer force of the power

calculated to appall the strongest and
etouteet That the said Taxing D s
trict denies comp'ainant the right to
construct its wr rks, etc.. or to lite the
streets or alleys. They claim that the
consent of the city should be paid
for, and that tuch consent
makes light of great value. Thev
c alm with the power of the police to
make arrest and the power to imp si
fines, it is better to purchase the cm-
eat of the Taxing Di-t ict than to in
cur its displeasure. That complain

of the Ameriian Health Association
at Toronto, the garbage problem was
discussed at great length by the best
ueaun Buinorii es oi the united States
and Canada. The conclusion was
reached that it should be burned. As
Mr. Eogol's patent is the only one in
existence which provides f jr consum
ing of garbage by fire, no other cre
mator can be patented without in
fringing on bis patent. He claims
that night soil can bs burned equally
as well as garbage and no dis'gneabie
odors will everreeu't. Mr. Ecgeleays
his machine is one of the be-1 crema
tories that could be devis:d, and he
guarantees to burn a human body in
short order. The attent on of the new
local cremation society has been called
to the matter, and a nniiir tpnt will
shortly be made. Mr. Eagel has fre
