The Petitions for Its Contraction Get an Unexpected Set-Back. The Special Council Committee Report in Furor of an Amendment Making the Fire Limits Coexten sive with the City The Special Commute of Fifteen appointed by th< Council hurt Monday evening, to consider tha petition for the modification of the Are limits In the Seventh, l Eighth, and Ninth Ward**, met in the City Clerk's ofhc»; yesterday afternoon. Aid. Sweet presided, anti therw were present Aid. Quirk, dowry, Powell, Richardson,* Clark, Warren, McGcnnisa, Stone, Sidwcll, Schmitz* Stout, Lcngachcr, Schaffner, Ogden, and Corcoran. The Chairman stated that If a change in the firar - - limlts was recommended, It would be a precedent, and S the Council would be covered with petitions for altera-*: lion. He hoped every Alderman would express hi* views. Aid. McGenniss Inquired if any one knew who signed the petition. Were they really property-own ers? Aid. Bailey said ho was Informed that 10,000 peoplo would have signed the petition had they been asked* He knew nothing about It, until asked to present it to the Council. One thing was certain, the people in tha wards named must have relief. There were no sewers in the district, property was valueless, and not a dwelling bad been put up there for a year, as tus owners of land hadn't money enough to jiut up brieli buildings. Aid. McGenniss claimed that there were not 10,(>.O vacant lots in the district. The fire-ordluancij wa.» passed In good faith, and many people, thinking the y would be secure under It, bad invested money, ami their rights should be respected. A court-house wu* to be erected; it would be in a direct line of a fire on • the West Side, if the wind was southwest, and he would not vote a dollar toward its erection if the Weal Side was made more combustible than It is now. M. CCLLATOTf. Aid. dowry hoped the poor people would be allowed to build a place to shelter themselves. It was unjust! to deprive them of the privilege when they wertx obliged to pay taxes. . Aid. Carney did not think that any Alderman who possessed a spark of humanity would endeavor to crush the poor men, who owned a single lot, and not command soiheient fund* to erect a brick building.! Aid, Bailey was in favor of making the fire limits coextensive with the dly limits, if the petition waw ignored. Ho desired the Committee to local— ity before they made a report. Aid. Bchaffner said the passage of the tiro ordinance was a guarantee to capitalists that money invested berw would bo cafe. It was hard, perhaps, to deny a poua| man the right to build a shanty, but they most con sider the larger interest involved—the millions of duN lars which bad been put into business blocks, making* Chicago probably the handsomest city In the world,/ and not place it in Jeopardy, The people generally* were satisfied with the onlinance, and hohoped it woulti* not bo disturbed. If tho limits were contracted in ono • portion of the city, the people in other parts would de mand modifications, and could not bo justly refused.- He waa prepared to-day to include tho whole city in the fire limits. Aid. Powell'wid the people who had signed tho pc titioa merely demanded equal rights with other*. They were not permitted to erect frame buildings, bu# a tract of land, a quarter of a mile away, was being covered with tinder-boxes; and if the Seventh, Eighth* and Ningth ward* could not be relieved, be dealretj that that tract be taken into tho fire limits. Thiawould, “atisfy the petitioners, and quelch a tiro-trap, which en« dangered tho West Side as much as the West Side ca« dangered tho South and North Sides. j Aid, Lcngacher desired, if the limits were contractor on the West Side, that they bo modified in the Sevens teenth Ward, If no change was made on tho Weal Side, ho would not ask it. Aid. Schmitz made a similar statement regarding a portion of tho Sixth Ward. Corporation Counsel Tuley thought, within sis months, there had been a universal acquiescence ;a the restrictions of tho fire ordinance. It was growing in favor, and he deemed it unadviaable to make any alterr.tioni*. The only question that should bo con uidertci vy wm %—■ :hat oi the extension of tho Limits. If changes were made, the ormnacco ok well bo repealed. Aid, Sweet voted for tho' ordinance, although it was against his convictions, and he conceived it to be bi« duty to maintain the present limits. Changes would be unjust to capitalists. • Property had advanced, an<S a better class of buildings had teen erected since tLo ordinance was passed. The improvements having been made upon tho supposition that It was to remain intact forever, it would be a great wrong to modify it. Aid. Stono moved that the Commute report ad versely. Aid.'Powell moved as an amendment that they re port in favor of malting the hro-linata coex'.cuaiva with the city limits. Aid, ITcGeaniaa moved to lay the amendment on tha table. The Chair decided that concurrence In the Last mo tion would lay the whole subject matter on the table. Aid.

Blake for Sop* The lovers of what may be called the prurient-sen- Batlonal in newspaper literature, and who remember vividly the details of the notorious divorce case in which Mr. Blake sought to relieve himself of the society of a wife of whose charms he fancied he failed to enjoy a monopoly, will bo pleased to hear that the cate is again before the courts with renewed vigor. It is, perhaps, rather unkind to inform such that the point upon which litigation Is again sought is one which will not necessitate the production in court of evidence of a 41 racy" character, but that, on the contrary, it will ■be decided by the dignified argument of opposing coun sel before Judge Gary. It will be remembered that the suit for divorce by Mr. Blake was uuaucce-ss.uJ, and iirs. Blake is forced to live away from her husband and children, unjustly, os the thinks, and she has petitioned for separate temporary maintenance and an allowance to enable her to prosecute the rx-e. Some time was spent yesterday by the opposing counsel in arguing the case. ....... The Court heard the petition, and decided that ha can all r>w plaintiff counsel’s fees, but postpones until tD-mo"**ow morning the decision as to whether he can allow c«r the means of living pending litigation.
