Aid. Hatch declared that witat IIP. had said "that-upon: the surface it look- ed as If an error had 'been made; and "if" so he could blame no person but the engineer. He was, however, open to conviction as to whether a mistake liad been actually made or not Replying to ,the question, as to the disposal of the funds appropriated for use at the new-fair grounds, use of the new fair grounds, Alderman Hatch soberly replied 'that if there a charge- on "God's green earth" of which he was free it was that of using his position as an alderman to lurlher his interests as an ardent sup- porter of the Agricultural Society.
