At such u late hour it was decided that it would not bo wise to start to digest any of the vol- uminous array of legal phraseology, so the charter 'was received and laid on the table, the secretary being re- ques'ted to have about a dozen copies prepared for future around the council 'board.

Asks the City to Pay the Expenses of his Legal Defence It begins- to look as if ilierc were to be some "doings7' before the police business of the city of Leth- bvidge is settled for ilie year 1012. Chief Glllespie promised on Saturday that he had some guns to explode be- fore he was through with the reeeut police investigation. One of them ex- ploded at the council meeting last night, when the city received from him ji bill for the cost'of con- ducting his case, in the investigation. The bill was made- up as follows: lawyer's lees, SOW; witness fees, ?GO; stenographer. He said that he had been compelled 10 borrow the money, and asked the council to re- imburse him to that extent. It was late 'when the comimmiea- Itloii was rea-d, 'and 'it'came as a dls- tiin-1 jolt io the serene and unruffled Feelings of the sitting aldermen. No! a word was said. That wag not all. Ex-Inspector Sil- llker had another of a similar sort. He naked for back pay which be believed was coming to him. That made the touch and the airier- men Ijegan 10 eye each other pitying- ly across trie table. The'clty solicitor will be asked. to deal with Mr. GHlespie's request, and to bring in his report at.the next meeting of thc council. Seen after the meeting and asked what be in- tended !o recommend, the city ioltelt- or was not prepared to make any lenghty statement just then. H-e was thinking, but salt! he had his mind made up nevertheless. The press would 'have to wait until the proper time came to divulge such informa- tion. As to the Silliker request, there does not appear to be much chance of his recovering the The ex-inspector stated that it was made up of pay withheld from his salary cheques for the months May, June. July and August. He was gi.ven to understand by Chief Gillespie when he 'was made inspector that his salary was to be per mcnth. He had been get- ting S115 as sergeant.
