The most im- posing one of these was concerning the issuance of injunctions by federal judges, particularly as they apply to personal liberty and their use in the 'settlement of disputes 'between em- ployers and employees. He also ask- ed exemption organizations from certain provisions of the Sher- man anti-trust act. It is said, however, the president has practically decided that his mes- sage to Congress will make 'no detail- j ed recommendations regarding the j Sherman. Act. His decision is based largely upon t-he fact that there are pending in the Supreme Court of the United States and on their way to that highest tribunal a number of im- portant cases involving the interpre- tation of that law. vs. and shortly after visit Yale to confer with his constituents.

Meanwhile the crowd I waited outside cheering the ministers and at t-he same time hoping for a suffrage outbreak which however fail- ed to materialize. The House of Lords convenes at 4 o'clock. While the government has not "an- nounced whether it proposed an ad- journment or the prorogation of par- liament, today's reports are to the effect that .the latter course is cer- tain. It is believed that Premier Asqtiith will see King Edward tomorrow. Both chambers will hold short ses- sions Friday' for the reading of the King's speech.

Robinson, to read the bylaw and the audience might dis- cuss it clause by clause. This meth- od was objected to by Mr. Simmons who thought that they could not in- telligently discuss the matter with only one clause, before them. The chairman accepted the objection and the by-law was accordingly read through.

If the company could earn a hundred thousand dollars then the city took its percentage of five per cent. If they didn't pay that the exclusive na- ture of their franchise ceased. Company Might Control Council .1. W. Boulton wanted to know if the company was bound-for sure to live up to its agreement. In one clause' it was stated that the council might! .relieve the company against the rc-j j suit of not fulfilling its agreement. All they to do was to control the council and they could do what j they pleased. Mr. Ives explained j that if a clause of that nature did {not exist it might be a serious dis- advantage to the city. If it were in j the interests of t-he city to thus re- lieve them it would not do to cut! j them off from that privilege. If they j i couldn't trust the city council they j i must got hold of some other form of municipal government. (Cries, "That's what we ''Yes. but not because you can't trust youi council."
