Applications for renewal of licenses

Under the head of unfinished busi
ness, Councilman Hillman moved that
the trolley franchise be taken up for
the second reading, oarried.
He then stated that all aotion here
tofore taken by the Oounoil ^as in
valid. That raised an argument.
Hillman said it was past , his under
standing vyliy the attention of the
oounoil was not called to the faot that
the petition of the company was illeg
al. Hu said the people were again
pointing their fingers at the cOunoil
and saying there must be something
back of it. He said :
''Again I say it has been a mere
farce for three months and the oounoil
have only been playing to the gailerv.
Why the former oounoil had fixed this
franohise up &o the bottom could drop
| out of it any miuute, is beyond my
(Moved, by Hillm?n, that the aotion
of the taking up of the franohise be
Oouncilman Galligher then said he
didn't think that it was intended to
let the bottom fall out of the fran
chise. Through the whole thing he
thought everything honest and all
Gounoilman Haines said that when
he raised the ooint about the fran
ohise no legal advice was wanted.
Now they oan see where they got it.
Hillman said that everything was
Oounoilman Eerr said he thought
the franohise would be ready in time
for the company if we have got a
democratio majority in the oounoil.
Thd mavor then stated that he didn't
think that the oounoilman ought to
spar over this thing, that it would
only take two weeks to have it all in
proper shape again. *

I were already using some of it on the
streets. They had also purchased
eighteen thousand feet of yellow pine
lumber to be used on the-bulkhead.
Under the head of miscellaneous
business the mayor stated that the
death of V. Applegate had oaused
a vaoanoy in one of the borough offices*

right to appoint someone to fill the
vaoanoy, but out of respeot for him.
they will postpone the appointment
until the next regular meeting.
HORSE IN A HURRY.
' Driven By Mrs. Al. Parisen ? Started
Aorots Sidewalk Toward Its Home.
Mrs. Al. Parisen was returning
home from a drive into town Monday,
when she was hailed by her little son,
who wanted to ride to the house, and
checked the horse just as she reached
the oorner of their street. The horse,
seeing its home, the barn looming up,
struok up on the sidewalk in its hurry
to get there and almost ran into a
telephone pole. How the wheel es
caped being taken off and the wagon
from being turned over is a wonder.
However, the horse crossed the corner
of G. Stranb's sidewalk, struck into
the road round the corner and stopped
just as some boys and a man who
heard Mrs. Pari sen 's screams, came
up. The'man held the horse ana then
led him along until between the house
and barn. Mr. Parisen came out of
the house and assisted his wife out of
the carriage, then he got in and drove
the horse back to the oorner and gave
him an objeot lesson, after whioh he
drove up the road, the horse going at
a spanking gait and was soon out of
GROVER SAW SNAKES.
Says It Shed Its Skin While He Was Look
ing At It.
"Hey, Church! Hey, Ohuroh! Hey,
Church 1 Look out, it's ooming your
way and its twenty-five feet long, if
it's an inoh. "
"What is it? Why it's a snake. I
just saw it shed its skin and run like
dash through the bushes. ' '
It was Sunday and Charles Grover
and G. M. Church were in the woods
looking for trailing arbutus. .
Church turned and went towards
the spot where Grover was standing.
On looking down he saw a piece of
rubber hose about twenty-five feet
long lying on the ground.
*' That's a healthy looking snake,
"You dash fool! That isn't it; it's
over there in the bushes. I saw him
jump out of his skin and go like
thunder. Don't I know what a snake
is? I've hunted for possums and coons
and snakes all my life and have seen
many a one and hadn't had anything
to drink when I saw them either."
Grover swears that wasn't it and if
anyone doubts his4word he will take
them there any day and show them
the skin, for he has marked the spot.
HORSE RAN AWAY.
Belonged] To Mr. Obrien? Pies, Cakes And
Bread Spilled In Street.
Mr. Obrien 's horse, attaohed to the
wagon filled with bread, cakes and
pies, while standing in front of his
Broadway store Monday, became
frightened by a trolley car passing by
and started on a run. The concents
of the wagon began to fly out when
the horse suddenlylfell and the wagon
turned upside down, spilling out the
remainder. The wagon windows were
all broken. They were some time
getting the horse to his feet again,
but finally succeeded.
