Gentlemen who accept election as . councilmen should be prepared to ,, meet every responsibility, and be alert in ascertaining what those re sponsibilities are. A little inquiry might convince members 01: the council that there are conditions, now in this city that ought Co be abated, conditions which it is, the councils duty to see are abated..
