at the refnsal of the town council to
grant them a site en which to erect
a monument to the communists who
were killed in 1871 , when Paris was
captured from their hands , as well as
to other communists afterwards tried

fused , it is understood , on the ground
of the absurdity of a municipality as
sisting to commemorate the acts of
men who violated law and order , and
attempted a riotous means to over

connumod , when the electoral ras'L

Michigan , obtained the floor. He
argued that congress va.i not a re

had any right to make a pass-gc. Da

to change a single vote cf the college ,
ho would vote against the resolution.
