A 'TRTVOLOUS" MOTION. j

'At the meeting of the City Council on ' «ttonday afternoon Coundllor Myers asked the Mayor why a notice of motion which he had sought to have placed on the notice paper had not appeared. The Miyor said tho reason it did not appear ivas that ho re- garder] it as frivolous, and apt to bring the council into disrepute if it w.is carried. The atter impossibility of hav.ng that motion «arried must be apparent to Coun- cillor Myers and to other members of the council. "Would you like to have 5t read?" asked the Mayor, and Councillor Myers replied "Yes." Alderman Isaacs sought to speak on the subject, but the Mayor ruled that there was nothing before the meet- ing. Alderman Baker contended the Mayor

had full power to rule a motion out of order | if he considered it frivolous or likely to ¡ " bring contempt on the coundl. The matter i

then dropped. The motion referred read \

is follows:-"That this council vote £750 ¡ lo defray the expenses of members and their ladies to Melbourne during the v.sit of the American fleet to that State; and that the Government be approached with a view to , tupnlying a spedal train for the City Coun

DEATH FROM" NATURAL CAUSES.

. At the Adelaide Police Court on Mon i «lay afternoon the City Coroner (Dr. Ram ¡.say Smith) conducted an enquiry into

the death of Alexander McDonald. Early on Sunday morning the licensee of the Bushman's Hotel telephoned to the police that a man was lying ill in the street, and | Constable Curnow proeeedetl to Brown

street and took McDonald to the Ade

| laide Hospital. Elizabeth Waters, re-

siding at Wright-court, sahl she had iden- tified the body in the morgue as that of Alexander McDonald, who had been board, ing with her. The deceased was between 70 and £0 year.« of age, and was a gardener. She did not know where he carne from. Dr. A. F. Lynch said he had made an examina- tion of the body, and found that death was due to natural muses. Henry George Hannam, bootmaker. Wright-street, ¡-aid he saw the deceased on Sunday in Brown street, lie; was walking slowly towards Whitmore-.-quare, and fell on to his left knee and then on to lois side. Witness lifted him up, and he appeared to be dead. The Coroner returned a verdict tliat deceased came to his death from

THE STO-ixPORT BRIDGE.

On Monday the members for the district introduced to the Commissioner of Crown Lands (Hon. L. O'Loughlin) a deputation from the Stockport. Mudla Wirra North, and Nuriootpa district ooundls to ask that a new bridge be erected at Ayliffe'*« "Cross- ing over the River Light, at Stockport. It wa« pointed out that the old bridge, which

had been erected about l8 years ago, at a cost of £1,000, was now in such a dangerous condition that a notice had been posted warning travellers of the danger of crossing the structure. The councils interested were not in a position to build a new bridge, and had come to the conclusion that it would be simply a Waste of money to attempt repairs. The Commissioner, in reply, said he fully understood their difficulty. The Engineer of Roads and Bridges na¿ in- formed him of the condition of the bridge, and he believed the outy- course open was to put up a new one.' Unfortunately he was not in a position to spend money there, because the bridge was not on a main road, but probablv if the councils would agree to provide half the cost of a new bridge the Government would be able to as-sist them. This course had been adopted on former occasions with regard to other new bridges on private roads. If the councils would un- dertake to raise half the money he would place the-matter before his colleagues for consideration, and agree to allow the local 'bodies three years in which to find the

money.

DIES TO SAVE HER FATHER FROM

CENSURE.

A remarkable story of a woman's heroism onus told at an inquest the other day (writes, our- London correspondent under date «lïily 24). Two engines coupled to- gether were seen approaching the level crossing at Cherry Hinton, near Cam- bridge. The gates were open, for the keeper of the crossing, an old man of 71, nnnied West, knew nothing of thc-ngim's' approach. His daughter, a woman of 31, saw them, however, and rushed to close the gates to prevent an accident and to save her father from censure. The driver and fireman of the first engine both fran- tically signalled, but it was too late. _he managed to shut one gate, but before she could swing the other round it was smashed to pieces, and she was killed m sight 'of her father. The old man, in heartbroken tones, told the coroner that there was no ring whatever of his electric bell to signal the approach of the engines. The bell had only clicked faintly before when trains had approached. He added that for the last three weeks he liaul be«-» on diitv from 4 o'clock in the morning until half-past 10 at "night. The jury, in return- ing a verdict of "Accidental death," added a rider calling the attention of the direc- tors, of the railway to the public danger arising from such long hours.
