Is.dlrectly prohibitcd by the statutes,
Dnvld Meado Whlto mado an ablo and

Aho are seoking to have the Injunetloh
llssolved. Mr. Kelley. ln the opening
irgument, took the Droad ground that
as Mr. Wlltshlre had not vlolatod the
Inw, the clty could not deprive Mr.'
Kt-ndler of hia money. the work hav
ii.K boen alroRdy performed.
Mr. Whlto, however, argued that
under the statute tho contract wlth
Kendler was \.old. He held that the
cuntract was wlthln the letter of the
law. that ;t was wlthln tho let?
ter and splrlt of tho law, and
that construlng the statute aa a
uhole . the contract ls prohtblted.
In other words, he contended that a
Councilman rould not be Inttresttd in
city work a* a contractor. Mr. Whlte
ni.ot'ed the followlng from n docision
of the Suprome Court of New York
in a caso lnvoivlng the same ciuestlon:

CHARLES E. BOLLING, New OHy TCiis-ljteer.
Friends of Mr. McCaw Said to Have Given Him
His Desired Opportunity Last Night?Jefferson
Hotel Gets License?Other Matters.
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. In referrlng to the Flnance Com?
mitteo tho bld of tho Automatic Fire
Protectlon Company. of Malne, whloh
offered the lurnp sum of ?2G0 for the
uso of the streets for a term of thlrty
years, the rullng of Presldent Peters,
baaud dlrectly upon the oplnlon of
City Attorney Pollard, was Ignored.
but ln thls Mr. Thomas-McCaw gufhls
revenge, if tho common whlapered talk
ln the chamber waa correct AVhen the
franchlse- was belng sought at tlrst,
Mr. McCaw and Mr. Kerns, it was un?
derstood, were assoclated ln the ve'n
turo. They" Worked like a team, A
few weeks ago two blds wero aub
mltted, and both were rojected because
uf the low prlce offered. Ono of the
bldders was the American Distriut
Telegraph Company.
Sliurji Dcbnte.
Before tho blds were opened last
nlght there watj a sharp and splrltud
debatc, dea.ing malnly with iaw. Coun
clnnan Cannon took the- broad yroond
tliat aftti ono bld had btt.n opened
uthors could be received.
"Do you mean to say that we can
sell thls franchlse at publlc auction'.'"
asked Mr. Lynch. Mr. Cannon repl.ed
that he had rghtly Inurprtted tlic
tn nd of hla earllir remarks.
"Then if that ls true," suggeste-d Mr.
Mlner, "tho Councll was in error ln
advertlsing far sealed blds."
Preskltr.t Peters stated that If other
proposltlons were to be recolved after
one had been opened he would not per?
mit tlio pr.ee- of the flrst to bo rxposed.
Mr. Spence agreed and contended that
tt would bc unfalr, after sealed blds
had been advcrtlsed for.
Uufi-rred to Commlttee.
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. The committee ha
nothing to do wlth thla matter ex?
