No greater peril could be Imagined at

not a formal and written ttottlcmont of
tho differences, at least u gentleman's

of them who loves his family and his

Likewise It seems to mo clearly tho duty
of every landlord, owner nnd hotel op

and charging as they all do a material

Miall bo brought about within tho next

strongly the Imminence of tho peril, and
It Is my solemn duty to ask every citi

During tho day Commissioner Cope
land conferred with representatives of
both parties. No agreement was reached
and the decision rests with a meeting
of the firemen's- union In tho Contra!

the sheerest of fabrics that appeal to
