are tha sort of people who want him to ex

The city has won In the Wagner water
meter case. That is if the litigation
rests with the ruling of tbe appellate
court at Ottawa banded down yesterda;.
The action of tbe court is to reverse the
decision af Judge Qlenn of the Rock

The appellate court ia a word upholds
the cit;'8 meter system to which Mr.
Wagner took exreDtion.
History of the Cane.
The case dates back to May. 1869,
when George W. Wagner paid bis
water rent for tbe Atlantic brewery, as
ind caied by the meter system, then just

next quarter beiMme due, however, be
refused to riiy, and the city thremenine

with the ordinnce, he secured an itiimc

out its threat and depriving h s industry
of water, on the gDucd that tbe ordi.

A Complete Victory.
