rooms yesterday, decided that the ntxt

over to a discussion of the question of

quests to the mainland for copies of
the vr.rious laws on tbe subject, and
these w ill be taken up and talked over
at length.
It was reported to the league that
there mint be a fight made against the

upon the little corner of land at Union
and Hotel streets, the only place wbtek
now extends into the latter thorough
fare, that the street will be widened at

ed that there should be representations
made to the treasurer, and there wiil
be conferences with the Superintendent
of l'ublic WorkP. which it is thought
may lead to the widening through some

The question of the teaching of tem

brought up. and Mrs. Whitney reported
that there was some instruction in the
subject, and as well there was the un
derstanding with the Superintendent of
Schools that the matter would be In

The legal committee was instructed to
look into the subject. As well the legal
committee was asked to look into the
lUestion of the employment of a spe

The question of the Star saloon was
