Order was Disregarded and Police Defied at the Point of a Revolver.

Montreal, March 27. - An exciting scene took place in the Longueuil council last night when Maurice Perrault, M.L.A. for Chambly, in the Quebec House of Assembly, held the chief of police at bay with a revolver and defied the mayor and council in his determination to discuss the tramway, which the council was considering.

It is claimed the member had no right to speak in the council meeting, and the mayor asked him to desist, and when the refused the chief of police was ordered to put him out.

At this stage he pulled a gun and held the meeting in suspense and went on talking.
