SCENE AT A POOR-LAW INQUIRY. Captain Hamilton, poor-law inspector, held an inquiry at Waterford as to a petition of the Town Council to obtain an additional loan of £15,000, in addition to the j?50,000 already advanced, so as to enable them to complete the new waterworks. In the course of the inquiry Alderman Bedmond, rising, said: There is a great loss of time. You will not get finished this week, captain. Mr. Allen (jumping up excitedly) I call en you captain, to put thif man (Alderman Redmond) out of the room. He is a perfect nuisance. Alderman Redmond: Don't mind this man; he is Mr. Fisher's cat's paw. (Cries of Oh oh. or) Captain Hamilton: Gentlemen, gentlemen!— Mr. Allen (very excitedly, facing Alderman Redmond, and striking & thoroughly pugilistic attitude): If you say that again, I will give you a clout in the mouth. Oaptain Hamilton: I cannot allow such conduct. Alderman Redmond: Don't mind him. Mr. Allen: You are a nuisance and an imposition on the city. Alderman Redmond: What are you ? Captain Hamilton again appealed to both to resume their seats but they did not heed him. Alderman Bedmond: He (Mr. Allen) is always kicking up ob- struction. Mr. Allen: I'll put up with none of your nonsense. Alderman Redmond: Oh, don't mind him. (Laughter.) Mr. Allen: 111 mind you very soon. I'll make you eat humble pie, like Johnny Blake. (Laughter, and cries of c. Oh, oh.") Oaptain Hamil- ton: I again must request you to desist. This lan- guage is most unbecoming. Alderman Redmond (chaffingly): You are not in the dark room now (the observation referring to some election revelations made during the hearing of the petition of Mr. Bernal Osborne against Sir Henry Barron). Mr. Allen (greatly excited): I would rather meet you in a clear room any day. I am ready for you any time, in the light or. dark. Oaptain Hamilton having get order restored, the inquiry proceeded. <.
