When the resolution came out of the
committee on rules where it had rested
a week Aldermen William T. Collins
Democratic floor leader and committee
member, read what purported to be the
committee report favoring the resolution's
adoption. The document ww an
indictment of England in term* of extreme
bitterness. Alderman August
Ferrand. Itepublclan leader and a membei
of the committee, Jumped to his feet
and declared that the document Mr.
Collins read was not the committee report
he had signed and demanded that
his name be withdrawn.
The Incident caused a sensation and
heated discussion, during which Mr,
Collins explained that the committee
had followed an established custom of
signing its report in blank and allowing
the chairman or a single member to
draft the report.
Ho, having been delegated to write the
report, Mr. Collins continued, had produced
the discourse which he read. If
the rest of the committee did not like
that report, he said, he would like it
to be incorporated in the Ctfy Record
as a speech by him and the board couid
proceed to the adoption of tlie resolution.

The resolution wrs adopted with
