However, nothing is being given oat tor publication. Mayor Hardie stated this morning that he had reached an agreement with the Herald that no account of any industrial matters would appear in this paper until the papers are signed and the deal actually consummated. The Mayor will endeavor to make similar arrangements With other newspapers in the city, and thinks the a-rrangement would be more satis-,!ttvctory to all'concerned.'
