Mr. lMcitacketn appointed Messrs. Ito bin. ()'('onnor and Ilartson, who escort ed the mayor to the rdstrum. The chief executive acknowledged the hon or by sayintg that a special message he had sent to the body expressed his feelings on the occ'asion, both officially and personally, lie said that time alone can tell whether the change that made it necessary for the members of the Council to step aside was wise or not, but that never could there have been a set of men who had been the means of doing a greater amount of good for the greatest number of peo ple.

I desire, in the name of the men who know and love you, to present you with this token of their devotion and loyalty to you as a man and as th? head of this body and the government of the people." This was greeted with a tremendous burst of applause, as the cup was handed to his honor. ALHAMBRA BUYS SITE. Club House to Be Located On Ope lousas Avenue.
