cording to tbe decision of the board at
tbe September session) I found tbat tbe
amount of flagging, aucb as required by
the city ordinance, waa insufficient to

I could not concur in the majority decis

Realizing as I did the extrs expense to

tbe north side of the court house square.
Tbis morning State's Attorney Sturgeon
appeared before tbe board and gave it as
bis opinion tbat tbe city had a right to
make tbe county obey tbe city ordinances
the same as any one else. The board
then referred the matter to tbe same
committee to see tbe street and alley com
mittee of the council and make the best
arrangements possible and report. A
conference is being held between the two
committees tbis afternoon.
During the morning session Chairman
Smith called Supervisor Murphy to tbe
chair, and be took tbe floor and made a
lengthy speech on matters pertaining to
county finances, the much disputed walk
among otner things. He also spoke at

that she is the headquarters f the regi
