The voting on this by-law took place yesterday, and resulted in its defeat by a majority of 71. The upper Wards of the city went very strongly against it. The following is a detailed statement of the voting, the official count being made by the City Clerk in presence of the Mayor and City Treasurer at 11 o'clock this morning:

Majority against - 71.

The voters legally entitled to cast their ballots on the by-law number about 1,000, so that it will be seen that a large vote was taken. With the exception of the upper part of Frontenac and Rideau Wards the voting was very slow, long intervals sometimes elapsing between the ballots being cast.
