No positive proof lias yet neen on-

pression Is that he waa the man so mys-
teriously burled early Sunday morning
from the house of a Knight of Labor In

Yesterday Messrs. P. W. Farrell M.

In the form of a atatement to tbe nubile:
At tbe conference held In New York
with Jay Gould and associates and the

was mutually agreed upon: i bat tne

tee of their emrtloves without dl8crlmln

Hoxle had refused to comply with the
agreement aa all the parties to tne co

lation of tbe agreement the General
Board believe that the refusal la for the
purpose or stock J ebbing using the or-
ganization as a veil to further their ends
We. therefore recall the order given

of publlo Interest was done. Secretary
Turner Bays the whole matter now rests

The resolution by tbe Executive Com

the business of tbe Missouri Pacific or

roads to procure new men for plaeea

Mountain sent out five freight trains

were read and approved after amend-

petitions which were before him. The
only one that brought rorth any discus-
sion was the petition of the Democratic)
Executive Committee praying Ibat the
city erect a hall C0x90 feet at San Pedro

tion might be afforded for tbe Demo-
cratic State Convention when it met
here the cost of the erection being about
$3000 $1000 of which being efltred by
the lessee of the park and street railway

The present City Engineer Bays "that

Berarstrom If the Cltv Enirlneer e-av

not take It. I don't see what It has to
do here at all.
Gallagher It does not seem to me that
this Is the proper tribunal to try this
cue at all. I understand this line was
given to Brown 23 yeara ago. I alao un
derstand that tbe line to which he
moved waa given him by the present
City Engineer. Brown I am told Is
able to prove tbat he did not remove
mar lenoe at an unreasonable hour.
Did Ollloer Brown have anv witnesses In
regard to tbe time of the removal of bis

very anxloua to bave witnesses. There

Hambleton The Alderman did not
seem to take Into -consideration the fact
that the officer himself admitted that he
agreed several years ago with the part
owning tbe adjacent property tbat thf

oeiween me parties upon mat agree-
