"'y The city council had an Interesting "meeting last evening, made so by the presence of Palmer Trimble, represent ing the Q. railroad, attorney Sawyer, representing the Shippers' Associa tion, and Alderman Talbott, represent ing the O. A. Talbott Co. Some time ago the Talbott company asked the council for a long time lease on some ground on the levee and the council gTanted the petition providing the lease was approved by the council. The petition was grant ed at the last meeting. After an hour's hot debate, the council reconsidered this action and the matter went back to the commit tee of the whole. During the debate there were a number of pointed re marks and insinuations made and the mayor rapped to order several times. Whenever one man would finish talk ing the other two would ask to answer him and it looked like an all night session. Finally some of the alder r—n grew tired of the discussion and It was stopped, the matter being re ferred back t" the committee of the whole which will come to a decision.

He stated that the water power if successful, would make a great change in this land and the shippers were fearful The Q. offered inducements for them to move to Keokuk, although one of ficial urged them to go to Quincy. His company tried to buy property here but could not and the railroad com pany let them have the land where the elevator is now located. The concern accepted a 5 year lease from the railroad company. Some time ago the expiration of. the lease grew near. It was then learned that the company's lcse would expire scon and the Talbott concern began to look around. He said that he had never raised his voice against the railroad in the council, \fter the council decided not to renew the lease with the railroad, it left the Talbott company with no landlord.

The bill also provides for the levy ing a two-mill road tax.- As the bill does not become a law until July 4th, it will not be possible to do anything until that time, but explain the work ings of the new law to the farmers, al lot road districts and do such prelim inary work as will Insure a speedy in auguration of construction work as soon as the law becomes operative.
