ahd. aad exnreeaed atlsfaction that
President Brown had seen hte mas

said that the rase was now la thej

Brown Claims Mere Votes.
It was reported yesterday that
President Cecil Brown received from
the Coast, per yesterday's steamer,
150 shares more of purchased ?t-cl:

will be roted at the meeting called
for March S. This report ua'urally

This question U one that will prob

President Brown wortld have noth

Macfarlane published above.
It Is hinted by Mr. Brown's friends
that. nctwithstandiug the fact that
he has aiknowledced his mistake and
that a new meeting, had been called, )
he is holding something up his sleeve ,
