attempt to disembowel Sergeant Blackburn,
and for whom there was a warrant, skipped
for parts unknown on Tuesday evening
about 6 o'clock. Just who to blame for thi*
piece of caielessnees ia not known, but it
appears, from tho statement of Dr. West,
that the Chief of Police is blameless. Tbe
Doctor told the Chief that Hamilton could he
removed on Tuesday morning, mud then
the Chief suggested Tuesday evening, but
the doctor InsUted that the patient should
not be moved until Wednesday morning.
Hamilton, no doubt,
that a warrant had been Issued for Ms arrest,
and therefore decided to take his chances
and get away from town at the earliest pos
sible moment. The Chief denies that he in
timated that Sergeant Blackburn incited the
riot, but says that
had been severely reprimanded on that even
ing for btaudlog and uot Interfering duriDg
the lieht of tho night before, and »ays that
tbe Mayor had threatened to . dismiss the
officer if such a thing occurred again.

Mr. Blake of the committee offered a mi
nority report that tho contract be awarded

tract for building a portion of the sewer.
In offering the report Mr. Blake said that
It thecoutract was awarded to Mr. Carberry
at the price bid It would cost $140 more than
the bid of Johnson & Miles, and he did not
think it a square deal,
Mr. Garrett moved to adopt the minority
and followed up Lis motion by saying that

Johnson & Miles, as they were the lowest
bidders by $144.

Mr. Taylor—It may Ihj all good enough to
