Harry testified that he had Tnet Sanfonl at the foot of the stejM, his wife beinj; in bed, and had re gistered him and i-oiiiled out hia room V him. "No one shown! him to his room," he said. His testimony tended to show that Sanford Arrived a tdioit time after Ir. Ulak left and a few minutes before the raid, and that there was not sufficient, lime to permit of jJI the booze transactions taking place. San ford, he saiil w.s jjiven a room that had been occupied by hj.H brother-in-law, nnd the bod ua not ever jnade.

The majority of our citizens want to be fair und do what is right, lhe city council, in drafting a franchise which will be voted on Thursday evening, has endeavored to safeguard the telephone uers as much as they have tower to do and nt the same time treat the company fairly so that they ran give to Alliance good and efficient telephone service." The Proposed Franchise The proposed francV.i. e, as tenta tively agreed upon by th members of toe city council and the representatives- of the company, covers four or five pages of typewritten manuscript, and is by far the bulkiest franchise of the kind in the stat. The com pany's representatives admit that they are making concessions to Alliance ' that have not been made to any other city or town where Hie company in uus.ness. Section 1 grants the company the I right of way lor the purpose of tran i sacting a general telephone nnd tele I graph business of the streets, alleys and public ground. of AllifThce for poles, wires and conouitu of the com Kiny for a term of twenty years, sub ject to the right of the city to levy nn occupation tax, the amount of which is not set by the ordinance. Provision is made for the citj. using, for fire of police wires, the poles and fixtures of i tie company. Section 2 covers the matter of mov ing buildings where it i necessary to take down telephone wires. Whenever i such a case arises, application .shall be made to the committee on streets jand alleys, and the committee, acting I in conjunction with rep"esentativcs of j the company, is to designate the I route such building shall be taken i through the streets. The company, wiien necessary shall remove wires to permit the passage of the building, and the expense is to be borne by the company or by the person for whom the moving i.-s being done, as the com mittee on the streets and alleyc, shal' decide. When the expense is burite by the mover, he. shall pay it in ad vance. Al! new pole lines hereafter erected shall be placed where directed by the committee on streets and alleys, ac cording to section 3 of the proH;ed ordinance. The section also provides that the company shall move existing lines in the event of additional pav ing or other public improvement re nuiring the full use of the streets. Minor changes arc to bo made as di rected by the council's committee on streets and alleys. The company agrees to hold the city harmless iron any and all liability from any injury or damages arising out of the erection, construction, or defective cond't'on of any part of the company's system, according to sec tion 4. Section fi provides a fine of $10 to $100 for anyone interfering with or damaging company property, and fines of from $" to $!0 for anyone who shall attach posters, banners or other s'uvn.f or advertisements to the com pany's poles or fixtures.
