The first th'in-jf we find in liiis big
goose eg*;-; js a pathetic appeal to thr*
'mayor and council ■ to be*honest and
appeal tlie'watenvui-ks by law ease
Will these twtfi lilllc' iiintc-nls be'
, iviiling to put up the costs of such an
'appeal1 in (ace 'of the (acts that the
city solicitor had advised llic'eouneil
that, the by-law had not be-jn legally
DratillPd, and his jiulginejit'liiitl been
confirmed.hy the »nst eminent counsel in the" |)ro'v'ii:e..>; and a supreme.'
court judge has conlirmed these con-
, elusions by ,-in oiliiial opinion ?
Judge Irving alter hearing the"
c.ise'of McLean" as stated by.hisitl-
t'orney nnd the (acts' vital to the case'
which were on 'record and undisputed, gave it as liis opinion that uudei,
the sections of the muiiici'pal act governing sueh. cases,*that a three-lift..';-
.vote wti-3 i.ci-cs3.iry. lo* ratify*' tlie
water agreement by.Jaw.
..-■Now it seems that   the' learned
,. judge and everybody else'excepting
the twins down town are able to figure out that ('8 "votf-s .are not thrcc-
liftlis of. 120 'and the,-judge, being'

T~tIic-Git-j*"—oM''**n-nto   l*RYtl~3TO~?lI5£CfiEC"

Tliere   weie "other, point*, raised,-
that there were more .ballots'in thc
■ box Hum there were voters' voted,']
and that sonic iiflecn. or twenty peo
pic voted who were not legally entitled to vote; etc,, clc,, but these little points need not be considered ex*.
copt ihut in passing wc might mention that- only a few months ago an-
oilier by-ltw had been voted upon
nnd carried by a majority of nearly
three to one and was. repealed because, j,wo or three people "had voted
illegally, but wo don't re member
the kids down street,'wcopii,{" over
the injustice done lo a large majority
of tho property owners, Tins bcot
was .on the other log just then.
