All kinds of rumors prevailed today

company with the oily. One was t-i
the effect that two of the aldermen
who voted for the ordinance wotiid. in
view of Hit extent to which public sen
timent has manifested itself, move a
reconsideration of the ordinance. An
other was that the strange combina
tion of circumstances, of which the
council's act was a part, would make
it impossible for such a move and that.
the tntluence.s Lack oi the case were
of such a desperate nature as to hold
the council right where it stands, and
even accomplish more, if necessary
the interests of the company; that
there were those connected with th?
city government who had gotten them
selves into a corner where they could
not recede, no matter how much lam
ming they might receive for their
course. In fact it has been cnrrentlv
reported that an alderman had been
heard to say that he would like o
speak if he could.
