At the Ypsilauti oonnoil meeting Monday night, the petition of the Woruan's League of that oity for the suppression of certain advertisements displayed there whioh are obnoxious to them, was laid on the table. In making the motion for this action, whioh was seoonded by Aid. Worden, Aid. John Terns said : "I hope every alderman will vote to lay the petition on the table. Sball we discourage tb. 3 industries to please a few people? On the other band [ think we ought to eucourage thein. We ought to teil these petitioners to stand back and look to their homes. They will have enough to take care of there and wben they can't quarrel witb citizens they w:ll quarrel with themselves. The Hay & Todd Mfg. Co. pay taxes on $45,000 worth of property which is a good deal for this oity." Aid.. McElcheran then jumped to his f eet and said: "With all due respeot to the ladies, I think the council would be in small business in trying to prevent the Hay & Todd Mfg. Co. from advertising their goods and I do not thick that persons riding along in the cars will be shocked by looking at the sign on tbe Hay & Todd building. They are heavy taxpayers and contribute a big share toward running the oity." The moción was oarried. So ends, for the present at least, one of the most remarkable petitions for tbe suppression of a legitímate and legalized trade mark of a firm that annnally speuds thousands of dollars in Ypsilanti, that bas ever come under onr notioe.
