Mr. Chambers said that he did not think any member should allow the Municipal Company to pay his expenses. Mr. Johnson said that when Council was invited, it should go nnder that com pany's expenses. He would accept his expenses. McCall objected to going to Cam den because the Police Committee had inspected the system and found It want Ing.

Mealey, "Administrator, Mr. Turner's Unsolicited Opinion On 8*V A communication was received from City Solicitor Henry C. Turner. When Clerk Messick started to read it Mr. Dll lin asked what it was, and President Farta said it looked like an opinion, Mr Dlllin moved that it be referred to to the Law and Finance Committees. Mr. Sharkey moved that it be read. Mr Magee moved that Mr. Turner state the contents and why he sent the opinion to Council. Mr. Johnson tbonght that as Mr. Turner had not been asked for any opinion, he should not send any. Mr. McCall said that as he did not know what It was about, he would like to hear it. Mr Magee and Mr. Sharkey's amend ments were lost.

Mr. Lawson called up for Its third reading, the ordinance abolishing the fire test. Mr. Bangh thought the test Town* th ? beBt thln K s connected with the department. Mr, Lawson said he did not object to a teat, but no benefit «ver resnl ',ed from the pre:eat method Ihe test-day -Was a gala day and generally excited much enmity. Mr Ayars opposed the ordinance on the ground that In two years, under Its rnl "f' f, tere . 'you'd not be enough service able hose in the city to extinguish a fire. Mr. Chambers cited Instances of the Fire Department test. He thought the fire test should be abolished and a different method adopted. Mr. Baugh said that the present efficiency of the department was a result of the annual test. Mr. Hawkins raised the point that the Fire Committee drew $5 a day for the fire test, without any authority what ,«ver. The companies hnrt the hose more than at all the fires In the year. Mr. Sawdon said the work of the committee •; 'ff" worth $10 a day. Mr. Bangh ex plained that the bill was sent in regularly ever# time and paid. Mr. Hawkins stated that the $5 was unlawfully ceired, because It made the salary more than $20 a month. The bill had > 'sneaked through, although we tried to stop its passage.

H. Baynard has adopted a new plan that Is now prevailing In western citlea, whereby the opportunity Is given to procure a good watch for a very low price, through the agency of co-operative clubs. This plan Is as follows: Clubs are composed of forty mem bers, who pay one dollar fee, which payment goes to the originator of the plan. When the club is formed they mntally agree to purchase forty watches for the sum of seven hundred and slaty-five dollars. Each week thereafter the members meet, and each pays one dollar, at which time a number la drawn, which en titles the owner of such number to select and and receive his watch, similar to the old plan of watch clubs, with the exception that upon the drawing of a number further payment of that number cease. The remaining members (less one each week) continue their paym and drawing for thirty weeks, when all pay ments cease and the remaining ten members receive their watches. The watches so distributed are a gold-filled case, mode by James Boss, with either an El gin, Waltham, Springfield or Hampden move ment, such as are sold all over our city for thirty-five dollars and which are fnlly war ranter! to give satisfaction.
