The Americans have'entered.' a pro- test against the assistance rendered Dorando at the finish by the Olympic officials. Every person on the press stand at the when the Mar- athon WHS finished, saw the officials pick up the Italian and carry him for a distance of several feet. Hayr-s finished two minutes later, without any assistance. The action of the officials in assist ing the Italian- is universally con- demned by the spectators, irrespec- tive of nationality.

He ran fairly strong over the last twenty five yards and showed no signs of col- lapse. Dorando wn.s so exhausted, when-he was carried off the track that the of- licials though fit to issue the offi cial statement: "The American protest against" Do- rando for receiving assistance at the finish of the Marathon race has. been upheld."

To this must be ad'ded the interest at per cent, vhich amounts to a your, a total annual cost of about lincteen thousand dollars. This sum would of course be materially lessen- ed by the saving the city would make in using its sinking fund in- tead of borrowing money at a high- er rate of interest.

Cunningham wished to have Aid. Ives' motion slightly changed o as to defer the removal of the Jlant. Aid. Ives said that he was his opinion on the expert ev- idence of Engineer Smith, who is supported in his evidence by several other experts who have given opin- ion. No expert opinion has been gi- ven to the contrary aud it seems to be the view of all who study such things and know about them. If the council is not going to carry out. the expert evidence in toto they should get more expert advice on the whole matter and Aid. Ives declared further that there is no question but what before the bylaw pusses there would be sufficient expression by the ratepayers and their views as to the removal of the plant would be plain- ly stated. Aid. Cunningham said that Aid. Ives' position is well taken but he has forgotten that Mr. Smith's re- port is providing for a population of people.- If the large expendi- ture can be deferred for a few years by the expenditure of a smaller am- ount now, should be done. The Mayor said that the mistake of most municipalities was that they went into things too small and had to keep adding and patching, lie told of Mr. McBurncy of Winnipeg, an expert, saying that the electric plant HORSE RACES AT MACLEOD Big Entry of Fast Horses is Anticipated for the Fair Premiers of Quebec aid Ontario Honored by Prince of Wales (Special to the Herald.)
