East Franklin Street, where, ln lier drunken, maudlin state, she had gone to rccover iicr childrcn, who, because ot the parent's neglect, were belng cared for by Mrs. Whitlock. Mrs. Wliitlocu refuscd to givc up the two-ycar-old in? fant, who appeared to he half-starved, and a summons was sent to the First Police Station. Two oillcers arrived ln a few mlnutes, and the woman was ar. rested. Both childrcn were later taken ln charge by Dr. Buchanau, uf the Asso clated Charltiea. Mrs. Shafer, it is allcged, has long neglected to take proper care of lier offspring, and that duty has often fallen to thc kind-henrted Mrs. Whit? lock. who could not stand bv and sco tlie Innoeenl llttle ones suffer for want ot' food and attentlon.

Mrs. Shafer has been arrested before.

Jones, one of the most prominent mem? bers of the commlttoe, were the speak? ers, and they carrled thlngs their way. Tho crowd, which was representatlve of avory class of voters, was attentlve and showed lta appreolatlon by frcqueui and prolon.god applause. Thc speakers brought out every point of Important-. in the ordlnance and challenged any one to show that it was not for the betterment of Manchester. Although ample time was allowed, thero was no one present who cared or dared tu dls pute tho facts presented. Chulrmnn Ilruwn Spenks. Mr. Brown was tho flrst speaker. Ho said that he had been flghting for annexation for a long time and that he considered thls the cllmax of long agitatlon; that ho belleved when thc ordlnance came to a vote it would go through by a blg majority, at whlcli the audlence broke Into long applause. He doclared. in refutlng the arguments ol' somo antf-anncxatlonlsts tliat con? solidatlon would not increase rents for thc worklng man and womd grently rcduce hts taxes. As for tne munurac turlng plants, from whleh Manchester now gets a great part of her revenue. ho called attcntion to tho fact that i nearly all of them were representod ; bv Richmond capltal. and explained hy actual tlgures what the clty was sure ! to get wlthin llve ycars un'Jer thc an I nexatlon law. The recent improvement of sldowalKs, be sald, was the result of an increase ln licenso. taxes and money from thu Archer estate, rather than from rev? enue obtained by tne progress ot the town. He also read Clty Accountant Crenshaw's report us to the llnanclal capablllty of thls clty to take care of the obligations assumed by the terms of the ordlnance. ... ,,, "ln other words," ho said,.. "we w 111 get ln flvo vears what wo would not get In thirty years if Manchester re? malns Manchester. II ls my "l""1"" that if vou vote for this and it becomes a law, vou wlll never regret lt. Mr. Jones took up tho ordlnantr, reading all the important sectlons ana explalnlng each one, laylng partlcular stress on tho smaller tax rate, Ilro pro tection and the provislonsmade, for the present offlcers of the clty of Man? chester. Ho thought that the or II nance Itself was all necessary to Induce niiv sane man to vote ravoriibly.lt was at the close of his reading that he challenged any one of the opposition , to contradlct his assertlons. Tho sl lenco was absolute. Concludlng, he sald also that ll could not bo eontra dlctcd that Richmond was much the best governed and most progresslvo clty, and that Manchoster, by votlnR ln favor of consolidatlon, would put Itself in the class ot large clties b> beeomlng a part of one of them.
