The mayor told the coun cil he though Marshll Krleger was doing everything he could to find out who was distributing liquor but the offenders were careful to piy their business when he was not around. The mayor's position w. that a detective would secure evi dence much easier than a known officer. The question was discussed at length. Some at tne counci men said they thought the city was not in position financially to make tn appropriation.

A bill was passed by both houses, requir-J lng hay dealers to attach a tag to a bale of hay showing its actual weight at the .time It, is sold. Hay baled when green loses, weight rapidly as it dries out and there has been much complaint from consumers that ,the dealers sold the hay by the bale on the basis of the weight K was sup posed to carry when baled Keep the Balance Up. It has been truthfully 'said that any disturbance of the even balance of health causes serious trouble. Nobody can be too careful to keep this balance up. When people be gin to lose appetite, onto get tired easily the least Imprudence brings on sickness, weakness or debility. The system needs a tonic, craves it, and should not be denied it; and the best tonic of which we have any knowledge is Hood's Sarsaparilla. What this medicine has done in keeping healthy people healthy, in keeping up the even balance -of health, gives it the same distinction ss a preventive that It enjoys as a enrs.

That any person who violates this act shall, upon conviction, be fined in a sum not to exceed one hundred dollars, or imprisonment in the county jail not to exceed thirty days, or by both such fine and imprison ment, as the court may adjudge. That nothing in t'.s act shall pre vent any person, who. may be im proving his property,) from encum bering the streets, . avenues or al leys, under a permit from the proper pf fleers of the city, but In the event of such encumbering of the streets with building material or earth, nec essary for the Improvement being made, the contractor shall clean up said premises thoroughly within ten days from the completion of the work, v i.

Senator Thompson of Kansas is going to have opposition over the patronage ques tion.

Henderson Martin prefers James Jacques, but Is willing to accept Jer ry Fitzpatrick, a Wilson delegate to the Baltimore convention, or any one else whose appointment would be a turndown for Senator Thomp' son by , the Wilson administration The state chairman wants to over rule the custom long -established' of federal appointments being determ ined by the United States senator.

Representative Gardner ..admitted . . that the people of the national had . repudiated the Payne tariff and that the Republican party had been' djis-" lodged from power, because it had . been too Blow to recognise growing evils and permitted a "far too pow- , erful oligarchy" to run the govern ment its way Instead of the peo ple's way.
