It is stone dead. The deadly blow was given the meas ure by Mr. Oliver himself, the recog nized lather of the measure. The mem bers who had tacked on amendments were opposed, to the killing of the or dinance anil would probably have de feated the motion which deprived it tf life, hut for Mr. Nealis, who wus chair man pro tern ami who in nngcr and disgust refused to heed the cull for nyi s and nays and declare I the ordin-. nnce tni.Ied. at the same lime throwing the measure down on to the report-r's table with all the vehemence h- could summer.

To overcome the object loll to Mr. Gil roy's tuKing part In the framing of the WyomiiiK avenue amendment, Mr. Zeid ler proceeded to have Mr. Gilroy's amendment stricken off und to substi tute one virtually the same, Willi him self us the mover. While some quib bling was solng on us to how this should be done, tlu-iv was a consulta tion ot the West Hide members and some of their board of trade boomers and before Mr. .eldler could get his amendment before the house Mr. Oliver moved lo lay the entire ordinance on the tuble. Pinion Thomas seconded it. The viaduct adherents voted "aye" and the members who had amendments attached voted "nay." "The ayes ap pear to have it; the ayes have It and th" mailer Is carried" said Chairman Nealis in one breath, while M-s-o-s. Sweeney, Keugau, Noone, Gilroy, Gor don and others made repeated calU for tin uyes and nays. "To with ye; it's tabled" wus the chairman's way of showing lilt, chagrin und utter disgust. When Mr. Nixme's ordinance to In crease the Indebtedness $:tsl,000 for the purpi so of erecting a municipal elec tric light plant came up for third read ing, Mr. Keller questioned tile propri ety of askinu the people lo vote on a mutter of which couiuils themselves have such nuugre Information. He said he wus not opposed t the proj.-ct but must vote against it on the ground that he war, r.ot pr pared to vote Intelligent ly on it.
