A Sesgion at the City Hall Yesterday Afternoon. A session of the Council Committee on Ordinances was held yesterday af ternoon at half-past two o clock, and another session will be held this even ing. The Committee reported adversely on the proposition to remove the li cense tax of one dollar a da\ fioni base ball games, which is in line with its previous action. The question of taxing balls where beer or other alcoholic drinks are sold was laid over until the full Committee could be present. There was quite a long discussion on the pending ordinance of the Peo ple's Telephone Company. At a pre vious meeting a sub-oommi'tce was appointed to prepare an ordinance, af ter examining into the whole situation. This sub-committee has never met. but one of its members, Mr. List, was yesterday announced to be at woik on a measure, and to have called in the City Solicitor for consultation. At yes terday’s session of the full committee an effort was made to have the sub committee discharged, but this was voted down, and the committee con tinued. After a good deal of talk, in which representatives of the Company took part, the Committee adjourned until this evening, when it is likely a large number of matters will come up and a long session be held. _ —n- ■ — CIRCUIT COURT. The Korreil-Plate Jury I»l*charmed—An* other Damage Suit t>n Trial. Before Judge Hervey, yesterday, the jury in the case of Korell v. Plate was out all day. When Court adjourned last evening the jury announced it was unable to agree, and was discharged. It was understood the jury stood seven for defendant and five for plaintiff which may be fairly construed as a vindication of both parties to the sit it of the defendant because of the fail ure to convict, and of the plaintiff be cause the defendant denied using the words complained of, and said so fai as any knowledge of her s was con cerned. the words were false. In the ease of House & Hermann v. O. H. Suck, there was judgment for plaintiff for $365.60. In the case of Nettie S. Etz v. James Larkin and Noah Zane, Sr., there was judgment for $1,435.20. The case of J. F. Kine v. W heeling and Citizens’ Railway Companies, for $15,000 damages for injuries received at the Island end of the steel bridge, last September, was put on trial before a jury composed of C. F. Braunlich, George Sorg, W illiam Ashworth, John Haberstick. A. C. Harrell. A. H. Wise. B. F. Higgins, J. A. Zarnits, Louis Ren:soh. Harry McLure, J. W. Hunter and W\ R. Rice.
