COMING EVENTS CAST THEIR SHADOWS BEFORE. Ald. T. Watkins called for a record of his attendances at the Board meetings since 1913. These were read by the Clerk, and shewed that the veteran, who has now attained his 80th year, had made but few misses. The Chairman Llit.^ht if the attendances of one member were read, they ought to get the rest. The Clerk expressed his readiness to comply, but warned them that to do so would take some time. The Chairman thought it was very wrong on the part of people to seek the votes of electors and then shirk their duties by non- attendance.
