Mr. Whlto, however, argued that under the statute tho contract wlth Kendler was \.old.

Behlnd the refusal of the Common Councll to award the burglar alarm contract last night, there ls a fran chlse story as Interestlng as any that has roached the publlc ear for some tlme.

There was a motiop to refcr the matter to the Street Commlttee. but for what roaaon was not explalned, in asmiii'li as there was a specltlc ordi nnnce upon which Councll had to act "There is no uso in referrlng lt t-i a commlttee." uald Mr. Davld Meade Whlte, "when we must either ' reject or accept lt and then send lt to the Board for coticurrence." Mr. Cannon and Mr. Cary had ar gued at length and had clted law books ln support of Mr.'Cannon's pub? llc auction contentlon. For a time thero wns tho utmost confuslon. Pres? ldent Peters was mad. "If the mem born don't keep ln order," ho said, "1 wlll clear the room." Mr. Pollock appealed from the de clslon of tho chalr, in holdlng that the bld was not rlghtly wlthln the prov lnce of tho Street Commlttee. The vote to refer was seventeen to thlr tecn. Tho piotlon was afterward changed to namo tho Flnance Commit tee as tho custodian, or investigator or what not. Dlsrccarded Oplnlon. . President Peters explained that he had asked for a special Interpretatlor of tho law from tho Clty Attorney. At thls point Mr. Davld Meade WhlU got Into the legal argumont. "I didn' have the Code Just now," he said, "but I flnd that the gentlemen didn't quot? the law cJrrectly.
