Davenport was l.belv to be dis

to be the aggressor in a figbt, which has
every indication of being a desperat

to accept an ordinance as recommended

Chapter 34 of the revised ordinances of
1884 provides, among others, that all or
dinances thereafter passed whereby spe

times by a vote of two-thirds of the coun

Inasmuch as the ordinances under
which said railway company possesses
toe riftbt to occupy our streets were
passed since the adoption of the above
chapter, it is manifest that the city has
the power to enact such amendments to
said Ordinances as will compel said com

appointed to determine what amend

ordinances and that the ci'y attorney be
instruc ed to prepaie an ordinance in
compliance with the recommendations of
subcommittee, and that action be taktn
on same at an adjourned meeting of tbis
council to be held at an early day.

There is a report that nine passenger
conductors, some men of long service,
have been discharged from the employ of
the St. Paul road. Assistant Surjerin-
tendent Mckenna says that if anything
of the kind has been done be is not aware
of it. If the company is contemplating a
reduction of ita donble force of ticket
