Andrew Donaldson, of Rural, and

in to lend a little democratic dignity
to the occasion. Some of the dele

Last evening's session of the coun

appointment is all the schoolboy element-can

unanimously confirmed. Tbetnayor
then nominated Max Kautz for po
liceman, but he was rejected eight to
six, as was also George B. Hanna
and Dennis McCarthy. Richard
Cams' nomination was made, but he
was defeated nine to five. There is,
it is evident, but one thing left for
Mayor Medill to do, and that is to
appoint his policemen from month to
month, for when eight men instilled
with the desire to block the city's
progress, and showing by their votes
that they are not there to represent
the people but themselves individu
ally and politically, it is surely time
for the people to interfere. It will
be remembered that at a meeting of
the council last Monday evening a
petition signed by 273 citizens of the
upper end of the city, asking for
more police protection, was read.
