Mr. Snerul moved a*, an amen?lm?nt that the men should be paid for the whole time of their suspension, and COO tended that It would b?? manifestly un? fair to dock men for trying to set WOflt to support their families.

Th?- amendment w is lost and, the original reeolBttofl was cur rleil, with only three dissentients, FAVOR VEHTIPCLEI? CABS, Mr. Noble Introduced the following: "Be it resolved.

Mr. Albn Baked the ammbsr from Mar? shall Ward whether BC lla?l SVBV tried to get the opinion of the motormen on this subject. Mr. Noble r. piled that he ha?l dote In BCVCrBl Instances. Mr. Cutchlns oppose?l the resolution. He siid he thought the Council ahould not endorse individuals, but messarss, if they were meritorious. He did not think the niotormi-n erare rill In favor of the cbange, and in this southern climate it was certainly ?uiite unneoeeeery. Be objected strongly to the measure, bsesea? he believed it IsopardlBed tbe safety of the public, in that It would tend to ob strncl the deer vision of the motormen. esp.ciaiiy in the ?-older weather, when th.- moisture wouM cong.al on the gta ami dim If. , The front glass of the vestibuled can in ass at this time A*aa Often lift open. Mr. Carter was In favor of gttlrSndlng the resolution to extol the BSSasars and not th?- individual. Mr. Noble said he had no object in Introducing Mr. Folkes's name. M??RE HARM THAN QOOD. Mr. Sn ail said th? proposed v.stihult would only hav.? the effect of cresting e pi-rfect gal?? of wind through the side?, Of the sh.-lter, and It would certain!.-, tend to obstruct the clear view of th. motormen, a thing which would be ?lan? gt rous In the extreme' to the lives of pass?lagers?

Albn aeoved that th?' ominan?? granting electric ei rights t?> the Bonthera Electric Company, whbh was laid on the table at Hie last meeting, ShOUld be tak-ii up. The reeding of this measure was dispensed with, and the settee ?>f the Common Council hi granting the fran? chise was ceseenrred In, asm eon, with? out discussion. President Turpln stated that if the roll were celled he would vote -against each of the erdiaaneee. H?- was unalterably I. to th?- granting of elec? trice! rights for thirty yean to any ?or poratton. The ordinance granting similar privi? lege? to the Horn? Eit.tric Company ems in xi tak-ii up. This BBBCf was read for? th- purpose ,,f comparison. Mr. Turpln said he WOUld not vote for the measure. It \vas granting a franchise which would kill the gas-works and ?b'stroy a valuable BflSBt Of the ?ity. The gas-works, he maintained, Is an asset on which the valu?- of th?- city bonds is liase,1. The. people who were behind th.-.-.- enter? prises had said that they could not sup? ply electric light at a |SSS cost than gas. but at th.- pressen rate of progress in electrical Aeeeeopmeai h<- thought the chances w-.re that In flv?' years th?- con? ditions woulil be iniKh ?-hange?!. Th ?Ity might ?mer the li*-1 ?I on Its own ac? count at some future time He favored the granting Of a franchise for fifteen years, but ?ould not. be said .vote for so lM*B torm as thirty years, and he made a motion to this effect. Refore this was put, h?iwever, the suggestion that the same change should b.- mad.- In the ordinance of the Houth.-rn Electric Company, granting similar privileges, was acted upon, and th.- Hoard r-solved t,, i. consider their action by a two-thirds vote. This ordinance was then taken up. and tht motion of Mr. Turpln to strike out the term of thirty years nn.l substitute ?fifteen was adopted by a vote of 11 to 6. CITY FIX THE Rates. Mr. John M. King moved to amend nee ti.in 10. so as to provide that the City Council should have the right to fix the rates to be charged by the company. Mr All.n sat.l such an amendment would ?erve ?mly to kill the meaiure. No one, he arguc'l. would ?lr.-am Of taking stock In a corporation hedged about by such I condition, which would give a council the power to destroy the company at any time.
