Salls'u accounts came up before tho board of aldermen at a special meeting last night.

As a result of the hearing Mr. Halls was given two months more In which to collect tlin taxes charged up nalust him. In addition to dis posing of Mr, Sails' matter the board granted the Burlington Traction company permission to extend Its North nvenuo line to the Kthan Allen fnitn and disposed of some minor matters. Aldermen Coffey and Paiker were absent. Mr. Macnnibcr, appearing for Mr. Sails. said that Mr. Salls's attitude bad not changed since he was before the board on nievious occasion. In ugard to tlio taxes pi. ued in his bauds by former Con stable Scully he said Mr. Sails cl.ilmiul that In. hail turned over to tho city all the money that had been collected, lie said the Scully taxes had never been lo gaily placed in his liands for collection and that ho could not enforce their col lection nnd therefor could not bo held responsible for the amount uncollected, lie said that all of the large amount chniged against him on tho treasurer's books never really came Into his hands. With reference to the Tncs uncollected during the years 1M'7. 1'. and irm, Mr. Macomber said that some money had already been collected and that more would be received.
