They were given trial on yesterday before Judge Joelyn.

According to the vote of the common council the standard time became the time Sunday, and the town clock took a halfhour recess between twelve and one o'clock. Cloeks and watches about the city are quite generally running by it and so are the most f the manufacturing institutions. However, some of the more conservative citizens,having possible legal coraplications in mind and being worked up by the cry that they vould not be "run" by the railroads, and othcr notions prevailing, are opposing it. They have created so much of a stir as to frjfhten the school board, the common council and the powers that control the town clock. The consequence is that the time will be changed back again next Sunday. The school board also got scared off the track and changed the school hours yesterday morning.
