The t-icense and Police Coini�ittnteis' Inion appeared be-foit! the Council to their assist aiiw ill securing union wages and hours nn the' building of the Kllison Mill. It seems that the contractor is paying *1 for a twelve hour day, while union wages are $4.05 for nine houi-.s. The opplicants claimed . that this vos unfair to the local contractors and carpenters.

The knottiest problem of the session was the application of C. J. Eckstorin for the privilege of erecting a tent Iu0x40 ft. on tho north -west corner of Round and DufTerin streets for a public hall and for sleep I ing _^accommodation. The members of tiio Council were very anxious to give every assistance to Mr. Eck -storm in his efforts to provide the very necessary ai^conimodation for tho transient public, but as the proposed site is inside the fire, limits a difticiiHy arose.
