THE NORTHMEN. The Scandinavian Element in Chicago. Their Fatherland—Movement of Em: gration—Some Early-Day Notes. The Features They Have Won in Chicago Community. Their Business, Social, and Intel lectual Life. Tlieir Religions Associations and Organizations, Etc., Etc- The Scandinavian is, next to the Gorman and Irish, the most important foreign element in thin city. The country from which they hail, and which is generally known as Scandinavia, is composed of tbo three petty Kingdoms of Nor way, Sweden, and Denmark. The peninsula on which Norway and Sweden are situated joins the ■ mainland of Russia, near tbo Polar Circle, in the northeast; is surrounded by the Baltic, North, and Polar Seas ; and is, iu consequence of its torribly-cold climate, very unproductive and thinly populated. The peninsula on which Den mark is situated joins the mainland of Germany on the south, and is surrounded by the Baltic and North Seas. To this Kingdom also belong tbo two little islands of Iceland, and Zealand in the Baltic. Sweden and Norway are ruled by the same King, but have different Constitutions and Legislatures, —the two sections speaking oven ifferent languages. Denmark has a potentate of its own, and its laws are considered more liberal, and its population belter educated, than those of the former countries. Sweden covers about 8,000 square geographical miles; Norway, .5,000; and Denmark, only 700, —300 square miles having been taken from it, a few years ago, by Germany; and, united, they have a population of nearly 6,000,000 of inhabitants. EMIGRATION NOTES. Tho first Norwegian emigrants arrived in America about the year 1825, and, in 1810, tho first Norwegian emigrants settled in Chicago. Swedes and Danes did not make this city their home until tho year ISSO, Since that time, from 18,000 to 20,000 Scandinavian emigrants have arrived in this country yearly. Very few of them remain East, —most of them going West, making this city their base of operations,—and at the present day it is calculated that there aro no loss than 300,000 Scandinavians living in tho' States of Illinois, Wisconsin, lowa, Minnesota, and Kansas. Of this number, about 45,000 Scandinavians have made this city their per manent homo, and they are divided amongst tho three nationalities as follows: Norwegians 20,000 Swedes 20,000 As will be observed by tho above figures, there are very few Danes residing in this city, when compared with the Norwegians and Swedes. This is accounted for by the fact that Denmark is by far the smallest of tho three North States, and, having a warmer climate and more fertile plains than its more Northern sisters, so many of its sons are not induced to emigrate to another more fertile and favorably-situated country. Swedish and Norwegian emigrants making this city their homo are usually poor, but, being ex cellent mechanics and steady, strong-limbed workmen, soon save enough money to buy a borne of their own. Some of our MOST SKILLFUL MECHANICS and best laborers come from those countries, and Chicago owes them a debt of gratitude for their aid in rebuilding our noble phmnixed city In so short a space of time. But where Scandi navians mostly excel is as navigators. Most of the sailors of our “Chicago marine” belong to that nationality. The Scandinavians have been FAMOUS SEAMEN as far back as 1,000 years ago, when, under the name of Vikings, they commanded and swept both the Baltic and North Seas, penetrating into France and England- and conquering those coun tries. It is even said that a Scandinavian was the first to discover America, and the story is related in a Norwegian drama entitled “The Country Found and Lost,” as follows: Biorn Asbrandson, an Icelandic Viking, loved Thuriae, a beautiful, fair-haireddaughter of Scandinavia, but through unforeseen circumstances was compelled to leave his country and his betrothed for the space of several years. When he at length re turned again to wed his beloved Thurido ho found her married to another. Broken-hearted, he again left his native land to drown the sorrows of his son! amid tho penis of- tho deep, and, steering due west, found after a perilous voyage of several months & beautiful country which ho called Vineland, and which is supposed to be tho Atlantic coast of New Jersey. Hero ho encountered a multi tude of aborigines, and, after having gained their friendship and confidence, they made him their Chief. About twenty-five years later, an other Scandinavian ship, commanded by Thu ride’s son, found the same Vineland: but no sooner bad they effected a landing than they were attacked by tho Indians, and would, un doubtedly, have been annihilated bad not old Bjom. the Chief of these Indians, interceded in their behalf. He soon became aware of the fact that the invaders were his countrymen, and tVipir commander tho son of his once beloved Thuride, and, after giving vent to his joy for again hearing from his native country, ho related to then* his story, and-reqnested them to return and bring. back with them a sufficient number of Scandinavians to resist any attacks of the aborigines. During their ftbsence old Bjorn engraved Scandinavian signs and names on the largo rocks near tho shore, that posterity might know who was the first discoverer of this continent. For over 300 years the Scandinavians, or Vickings as they were then called, continued to travel to and from this country, until at last they abandoned it, leaving it to Columbus to retrace the old paths ftnd receive all tho credit therefor. THE LANGUAGE spoken by the Scandinavians is not uniform. The dialect of Norway and Denmark is nearly Identical, and is, therefore, called the Norwegian- Danlsh. The Swedes speak a language of their own, which somewhat resembles the Norwegian- Danieh. Neither of these languages is original, but rather a conglomeration of French, English, German, and Latin. rannauANT swindling. Scandinavian immigrants arriving in this city are, through their ignorance of our language and manners, greatly imposed upon by immi grant-house keepers and runners, most of whom belong to their own nationality. The names of the most notorious of these im migrant houses are familiar in the Police Court, their proprietors having often been before the Slayor and the Police Courts on charges of swindling poor immigrants, and whose runners are considered champions in playing the confi dence game upon their unfortunate countrymen who desire to seek shelter beneath their inhos pitable roofs. The Dania Society formerly used to look after the interests of these poor immi grants, but since actually ono of the most Noto rious of these parties has become an influential member of that society, and is paying part of its expenses, they no longer spend their precious time in hunting up and assisting their unfortu nate countrymen, but leave that job to the more Interested party, as a committee of ono, and de vote themselves to the more noble occupation of playing poker in a back room of their club-house, if the Scandinavians would organize a society to aid, protect, and advise the immigrants of their nationality, the same as the German Bocietv for the protection of Immigrants and tho Friendless is doing, it would save many a poor family that falls into ono of those infamous from terrible sufferings and untold privations. SCA3»DIN*JLTIi?r XOCJMJTIE3. Like other foreign elements in this dtv, the Scandinavians have certain localities hi which thov congregate and chose their homes. Most of the Swedes live north of Chicago avenue and west of Wells street, on tho North Side, while the Norwegians and Danes prefer to live north of Kinds street, on tho West Side. . Scandinavians are generally a very temperate and sober people, few of them being addicted to tho na» of intoxication liauors, and tbit ten aaloons in this city are kept by members of that nationality. They, umiko the Germans, do not "congregate in saloons, nor are they very fond of lager-beer, preferring to spend'their evenings at homo, surrounded by their, offspring smoking with great relish the worst kind of tobacco from a long-stemmed clay pipe. They are a law-and-ordor-loving peo ple', and on the Sunday question are decidedly on the side of Mayor Mcdill, all their papers advocating the closing of saloons on Sundays. AS CITIZENS, none of our foreign inhabitants make better American citizens than Scandinavians, most of whom come to this country thoroughly im bued with - republican ideas and principles, fully determined to become true American citizens, and forever to renounce their mother country with its monarchical and aristocratic institu tions and its cold, rough, and icy climate. They easily adapt themselves to American manners and the language of this country, and no sooner do they understand the English language than they refuse to speak in their own tongue, pre ferring to read American newspapers to those published in their mother language, and for that reason most of the Scandinavian papers in this city have email circulations. In 1861. they were among the foremost to sacrifice their lives and their fortunes on the altar of their adopted country, and none fought more valiantly than they, They are, and always have been, the strongest op'poscrs of slavery, and for that rea son they have allied themselves to the Repub lican parly since its formation, and to that party most of them still owe theirallogianco, they hav ing a perfect horror of tbo appellation of Demo crat, it meaning to them nothing more nor less than rebellion and the establishment of slavery. AS MUSICIANS. As singers and musicians Scandinavians ar« widely celebrated. Who has not heard and ad mired the magnificent voices of Jennie Lind and Christine Nilsson ? or who has not been enrap tured by the matchless music of Ole Bull ? Several excellent Scandinavian singing so cieties have their abode in this city, the best of which are the “Freya Singing So ciety,” the “Norman Sang Vereining,” and the “Skandinavcn Sangors.” Two of our best bands of music are also composed of members of that nationality. ATHLETES. The Scandinavians also pride themselves on having one of the best Turner Societies in tho country. Their hall is on tho comer of Milwau kee avenue and Second street, whore they meet for tho purpose of developing their muscular strength, as well as for social entertainments. These Tumors are very tall, powerfully built, and have usually blond b&ir, which is character istic of tho Scandinavian nationality, and when ever they appear on our streets, clad in their beautiful snow-white suits and caps with blue velvet borders, their splendid silk flags and ban ners streaming in tho air, they are enthusiastic ally hailed and cheered by our delighted citizens. SOCIAL ORGANIZATIONS. Of other Scandinavian intellectual and social societies in this city, the Svoa Society, which holds its meetings at Skandinavion Hall, No. 155 East Chicago avenue, has about 100 members, and is held in great esteem by the Swedes in this city, as is also the “Norwegian” and “Nora” societies by the Norwegians, and the “Dania” by the Danes. Besides these societies, there is the Scandinavian Carpenter Society, the Scandi navian Workingmen Society, and tne Scandina vian Shoemaker Society. Scandinavians do not seem to he admirers of secret societies, only one, a Swedish Odd-Fel low Lodge, having its existence in this city. RELIGIOUS NOTES. The prominent religion among tho Scandina vians is tho Evangelical Lutheran, but there are also some Episcopalians, Methodists, Baptists, and SwodenbbrgianSj but no, or very few, Catholics. Of Scandinavian Evangelical Luth eran churches, there aro tea ia this city, of which tho Norwegians have five, the Swedes four, and the Danes one, as follows: 1 Norwegian Lutheran Church, Nos. 183 and 183 North Peoria street, has a membership of about 500, and Rev. I. C. Peterson is the pastor. 2—Norwegian Trinity Lutheran Church, West Indi ana street, southwest comer Pooria street; 600 mem bers belong to this congregation, and Rev, John O. Torgersonis tho pastor. B—Norwegian Lutheran Bethlehem Cbureh, Sanga mon street, northwest comer of Philips street. Iter. B. M. Krognees, pastor. 4 Our Savior Church, North May street, between Erie and Second streets. Rev. J. Krolm, pastor , 600 members belong to this congregation. 5 Norwegian Mission, near Milwaukee avenue. 6 Swedish Lutheran Emtnanual Church, comer of Sedgwick and Hobbie streets. Rev. E. Carlson and S. A. Lindahl, pastors. This congregation has about 1,500 members, and connected with it ia an excellent school, with 200 pupils, of which A. P. Monton ia the principal, 7_Swedlsh Lutheran Gethsemane congregation. No. 65 East Erie street. Rev. P. Erickson, pastor. B—Swedish Lutheran Salem Church, BusbnoU street, between Twentv-thlrd and Twenty-fourth streets. Rev. P. Nyqulst'pastor. This is the only Scandinavi an South Side church in tho city.. g Swedish Evangelical Lutheran Mission, Nos. 278, 280 and 253 North Franklin street. Bev. E. M. San gren, Superintendent, 30—Danish Lutheran Church on the West Side. Have no pastor at present, but have sent for one to Co penhagen, Denmark. Of Scandinavian Methodist Churches there are: 1— Norwegian Methodist Church, West Indiana street, northeast corner of Sangamon street, Iltv. O. P, Peterson, pastor. 2 Swedish Methodist Church, corner of Market and Oak streets. Bev. Mr. Anderson, pastor. 3 Danish Methodist Church, Second street, near Milwaukee avenue. Of Saandinavian Baptist Churches there are : 1— Swedish Baptlat Church, Oak street, near Sedg wick street. Bev. John A. Edgrcn, paator. 2 Danish Baptist Tabernacle Church, Fourth street, northwest comer of Noble street, Bev. John Johnson, pastor. Then there is tho Swedish Episcopal Church, on Sedgwick street, between Oak and 'White streets, Bev. Bredbnrff, pastor. This congregation has about 1,000 members and a very large Sunday-school. There is also a Norwegian Congregational and a Nor wegian Adventist congregation, and several other re ligious societies In this city. Tho Norwegian Lutherans have three excellent and well-attondod parochial schools in the city, and the Swedes bavo two. THE LITERATURE of the three ia remarkably great when compared with their number of people. Some of their literary productions are of rare excellence and of great age, ae, for example, tho “ Elder Edda,” written about the year 1090, and the “ Younger Edda," written about tho year 1210, and the “ Kerins Kringlo,” written about the year 1230. Those works bavo been trans lated into several languages. Their historical writers and poets, os well as their naturalists, have been very prolific, and are widely renowned. Their publications in this country are mainly political, religious, and periodical publications. The lead ing Scandinavian paper in this city, in fact, tho omy Scandinavian daily paper in this country, is the Skandinaven og America , published daily, tri-weekly, and weekly, by Johnson, Anderson & Lawson, at the Scandinavian Building, No. 323 Fifth avenue. Tho daily, which is an eight-col umn paper, has, although it is the only Scandi navian daily paper in tho country, only 2,400 subscribers, which eubstantiates the assertion that Scandinavians understanding the English language prefer to read American papers. This paper is the'organ of the Norwegians and Danes m this country, and is printed in the Norwegian- Danish language. The weekly issue of the pub lication is a ten-column paper, and has a circu lation of nearly 12,000 copies, of which about 200 copies are sent to subscribers in Norway and Denmark. In politics it is, like almost all other Scandinavian papers, radical Republican. The American news it furnishes its readers is rather meagre and out of date when compared with American dailies, but its nows from Scan dinavia is very full, and it has also a very large Norwegian-Daniah exchange list. Among the more important of its exchanges are the Mor genbladet, published at Christiania, Norway. This is the leading Norwegian paper, and is the official organ of the Government, by whom it is subsidized, it having only about 1,000 subscrib ers. It ia very conservative in politics, and, as tho Norwegian people are very liberal, they do not support it. This paper, although the load ing one of Norway, is only the size of the Even ing Mail, and tho telegraphic dispatches in any of its issues do not amount to over a dozen lines, while its market, shipping, and commercial news is contained in lees than two dozen lines. Tho Eagbladct, of Christiania, Norwav, is of the same size as its above-named con temporary, but radical in politics, and has, therefore, a much larger circulation. Its news columns and commercial reports are as meagre as those of its aristocratic contem porary. Besides these two leading p.ipers, there are tho A/tenposiin, of Christiania, the Stiftstidcnde, of Tromso, Norwav, which city is situated near the Polar Circle. The paper looks as if it had been printed with frozen ink, or if tho printers had emptied a “ Schnapps ” behind their cravats every five minutes to keep themselves warm; and the Amtstidende, of Stavanger, Norway. . The’ BerUngske Tidende is tho official organ of tho Danish Government, and is published in the Citv of Copenhagen, Denmark. In size it is a little larger than the Evening Mail It is con servative in politics, and is only road by tho aristocracy. As to its nows and commercial re ports, it cannot be compared with the meanest American daily paper. , . The Eagstekgrafen , of Copenhagen, is about the size of tho Evening Journal, and politically it is very liberal. For its enterprise m supply ing its readers with tho latest news it deserves about the same praise as tho Government organ mentioned above. Among tho exchanges of tho Skandinaven og THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE: SUNDAY, MARCH 30, 1573 America are, also, several very excellent literary and illustrated publications. The Sccnska Americanaren, or the Swedish. American , is published semi-weekly, at the cor ner of Indiana and Peoria streets, and is edited byP. A. Sundelins. Its circulation is very small, it having only about 2,500 subscribers, this paper is printed with English types, while all other Scandinavian publications in this city are printed with German types. The Uemlandet is published weekly by John A. Enandor and George Bohraan, at No. 149 East Chicago avenue. This is a nine-column paper, and is the organ of the Swedes in the Northwest, and has a circulation of about 8,000 copies. It is radical Republican in politics, and strongly supports the Mayor on the Sunday question. This paper receives a large number of exchanges from Sweden, the most important of which are Handels och Sj of arts Tidmng , of Gothenburg, This paper furnishes the best market, commercial, and shipping reports of any paper In Scandinavia, but in ail other re spects is a very inferior publication, it being no larger than the Evening Mail of this city. It is very liberal in politics, strongly advocating Re publican ideas and principles, and has, therefore, many subscribers among the hberty-loviugpeoplo of Sweden.' The Nya Haglint AUchania, of Stockholm, is about tie same size as thd above named paper, but, it being the Government organ, is very conservative and aristocratic, and has consequently a very small subscription list. All other leading papers published in Sweden, such as the Hageno Eyhelcr, Fademislanded, and Samtiden t of Stockholm, and the Pocten , of Jonkorping. are very liboral in their tendencies. There arc also Swedish illustrated literary papers received and read in this city, of winch the Swcnska Wcekbladet, of Stockholm, takes the lead. This paper is said to have a circulation of over 50,000 copies. The Illustrated Steenska Eamily Joumalen, of Stockholm, and For-och - Ah, are also widely read and highly prized be our Swedish fellow-citizon. The Illustrated Tidniug , of Stockholm, is similar to Harper's Weekly , and has also a largo circulation iu this city. The Swedish religious publication mostly read in this country is the Lutheran paper Wack taren, of Stockholm. The Xya Verlden (New World), another Swedish paper, is published by A. Chaiser. at No. 4 North Wella-strcet, and has a circulation of about 4.000 copies. This is the only Scandina vian Liberal Republican paper in the Northwest. The Missionaren is published monthly iu this city, and is the organ of the Lutheran Swedish Mission. It has about 2.000 subscribers, and its editor is the Rev. J. P. Nygnist. The Sandcbudei , the organ of the Swedish Methodists in this country, is published weekly by Hitchcock A Walden, and is edited by N. O. Wustorgren. » The Augusfana och Haifa Uemlandet la .'the organ of the Swedish Lutheran Church In this countrv, and is published and edited by Prof. N. T. lias?elgnist, D. D., and has a circulation of about 2,500 copies. Scandinavians, like all other foreigners in this country, are jealously guarding their rights and privileges * AS AMERICAN CITIZENS, and whenever, in tho division of National, State, county, or city offices, their nationality is neglect ed, considerable grumbling can be heard in those quarters mainly inhabited by them, and it is do more than just that an element of such strength as theirs has been shown to bo by tbo above facts and figures should bo better recognized by tho party to which they noarlv all belong than they have been in tho past. Ihoy aro peaceful, in telligent, and honest, and will fill any office with credit to themselves and honor to tho country. WALL STREET.

New York, March 29.—At a meeting of the journeymen horse-shoers, with reference to the attempt by an express company to make their men work nine hours, it was reported that the organization was able to hold out. Only one man remained at work, and he will probably leave to-day. All but one of the Employere’.Compiittee arc opposed to the eight-hour system. They hope to persuade journeymen to work by tho hour, and thus avoid a strike. Capitalists are giving contracts to builders in Now Jersey, with promise to bring men hero to work under the protection of tho police. Build ing this year would bo very extensive but from an apprehension of strikes. Representatives of the carpenters, stonecut ters, and other trades held a meeting lost even ing to discuss the situation and arrange for in terviews with employers. Pittsburgh, March 29. —The opposition to Chinese coolies by the laborers in the vicinity of Beaver Falls, Pa., continues.

Nomination of All Sorts oi Tickets, with Ail Sort of Candidates. A mass meeting was held yesterday afternoon, in the Council Chamber, for the purpose of listening to the reply of the Liberal Committee of the South Town, of nominations for town officers to be voted fqr Tuesday, The meeting was called to order by Mr. McKinley. Justice Boyden reported that the Liberal Committee for the South Town had agreed upon the following names: Supervisor— B. Locwcnthal. Collector— P. M. Clary. Clerk —Peter 11. Witt. A Mteaor —W. 11. B. Gray, Constables —Philip Keeler, Charles McLean, Henry Best, John Moore, Peter 11. Conley, R. H. Wallace, Geo. H. Hartman, Morris Crane, and G. G. Chllcott. The Committee, after consultation with tax-payers, hod, with some difficuliy,arrivcd at selections for minor officers. There was no objection to the nominees for higher officers. Mr. Loewenthal was the present in cumbent, and bod been the beat Supervisor the South Town had had for many years. Mr. Clary was a large tax-payor and an honest man. Mr. Gray was known in Chicago Sot many years, Mr. Webb had also lived in Chicago for a long time. Somebody asked if Mr. Gray would reduce an as. eossment from $123,000 to SIO,OOO when a man asked for it, as Rod be rt us had done, Gen. Smith moved the adoption of the report. He knew almost all the names on it, and indorsed the men It was the duty of all citizens to put good men oven in the minor offices. John Fell moved to table the report, because some thing or other was wrong. Judge Boyden moved to take np the report seriatim. It was agreed to. They were confirmed until Mr. Gray was reached, when some one opposed him, and Mr. Fell said Gray was the best and most popular man they could find. He was confirmed. When the. Constables were reached, Mr. Feil said these men held important and lucrative offices, and therefore good men should bo selected. If poor ones were pat on, the ticket would bo defeated. Mr. Keeler was slaughtered. Mr. Russell said Constables were not minor officers; they were persons of great importance. Ho moved that the five Justices of the Sotflh Town be requested to submit a list of good men, and that a committee of three be appointed to call on them. Justice Boyden said the list 'hod been made after consultation with nearly all tho faithful Justices, and men had been picked out who had been doing business with them. Mr. Feil sold there bad been a mistake about Mr. Keeler. He was a largo property^owner. A gentleman with a dyed moustache raised a point of order that the list must be gone through with. It was sustained. Charles 0. McLean was confirmed. Henry Best was vouched for by the young man with the dyed moustache. Qo knew him long and well. Ho was the brewer’s eon. Mr. Foil also vouched for Mr. Best, who woa nomi nated by acclamation. Mr. Fell seconded John M. Moore, and said he was not the other Moore, but the one who had been Justice. Ho would be a credit to the office. Ho went through along with Conley. The dyed moustache seconded Wallace, and he was put through along with Hartman and Crane. Mr. Feii opposed Mr. Chilcott, since ho had two years of office yet to run. Mr, Chilcott was turned out. Mr. Keeler’s case was token up, and bis merits were fully discussed. It appears that bo is competent and worthless,-an honor to the profession, and a man un fit for the place, A man who was now in office and a man who was a runner for Brandortf, and not in office at all, —a man of property,—and a bummer. Judge Boyden said ho was an unusually active man in serving papers, and very honest in paying over money. It was asked if be bad not habitually been in the habit of charging illegal fees. The modou to reconsider was carried, and Mr. Keeler was nominated. Mr. Feil presented a petition signed by tax-payers, property-holders, and prominent citizens, such as Geo. Cooper, Otto Bluhm, Aid. Tracey, Michael Evans, and Dan O’Hara, asking tho meeting to put in Austin Baly, a poor and honest young man, as Constable. It was asked if Mr. B. was from tho Sixth Ward, which was “liable to a little more representation.” Tho dyed moustache said Baly could not write hla own name. Tho Sixth Word nominated Ike Hartman. Baly waa beaten 13 to 16, and Hartman was chosen, 22 to 10. Mr. Kenney moved to go into nominations in North and West Chicago. It was moved to adjourn, einco it was a South Side meeting. Mr. Kenney got wrathy, and said they had had half a dozen North Side nominations] and they wonted another. The Chair cald it rru & South Side meeting, and the north and west towns must take care of themselves. Mr. Kenney wanted to know how they could do It. They wanted to make nominations under the wing of the Liberal Committee, but it seemed it could not bo done. The meeting adjourned. Four North Siders met, and tried to hold a mass meeting, but it proved to be a failure. WEST SIDE NOMINATIONS. A macs meeting of the freemen of the Town of West Chicago was held yesterday evening, at Tammany Hall. Of the 20,000 freemen. in that town, about 143 were present. The majority of these were of foreign extraction, registered in the Directory as ** Me.” and “ o.” The aim of the assembled freemen seemed to be the reform of the Constabulary system, .which was to bo accomplished by the nomination of various gentlemen present as Constables. The meeting was called to order by Mr. E. Martin, who, after giving a summary of Haines* Treatise on Township Organization, explained the way in which the Republican ticket had been gotten up. The object of the present meeting was to nominate honest man f and back them up at the polls. Mr. Owens was elected permanent Chairman, and returned thanks for the unexpected honor of making him President of the little arrangement. Ho was to tally almost unprepared, and begged his hasty election would excuse any shortcomings on his part. Too much importance could not bo attached to the kind of men elected at the present crisis, for corruption was rampant, and It was seeming as if Chicagoans were un worthy of the suffrage. The beat men were wanted for these positions, for money matters were tempting, and the voters oould not be too careful In looking after tboir interests. They wanted square dealing. Mr. Martin was elected Secretary. A freeman said there was no Republican ticket In tbc field. Mr. Martin explained that It was a bogus ticket, nominated in fraud. Mr. Bass was called on for his views, and stated he could vote for no man nominated on the Liberal ticket on Madison street or elsewhere. There were good men ready to take office. The Madison street meeting was a packed one, and some of the nominees were no better than pickpockets. air. Beatty, a lawyer of eminence, was called on for bis views, and bo cheerfully responded. It seemed to him that the tax-payers of West Chicago should take more interest in the township officers. Unhappily, a taint of dishonesty seemed to pervade the whole strata of society. It seemed as if Congress was made up of the drove of hogs Into which the Redeemer east the devil. After tracing the connection between Congress and the West Chicago town meeting, be sold ho would not like to see the meeting make nominations, since it was not big enough. What they ought to do he could not say, ex cept that they should elect honest officers. They should

also be capable. Was it not too late to elect such men 7 They elected a Supervisor who sat in the County Board, and might impose taxes of thousands. They elected Justices of the Peace who act in judgment on them. Party politics should cut no figure in the matter. Mr. Martin was in favor of making nominations, for honest and capable men were present. Ho moved to proceed to make nominations. Another freeman, who wanted to be a Constable, was In favor of making nominations. The Chair aaked If any other pertinent remarks were to be made. A freeman said he would like to bco some other ward represented than the Fourteenth. It was elated the Tenth and Thirteenth were repre sented. The freeman observed they wore represented by can didates. He waa ready to ballot. . A freeman from the Thirteenth Word, now a Con stable, and desirous of remaining so, said that was a very responsible office and great pains should be taken to choose men as Constables, end not poopl* who cat haulcd and gulled men round. It was as responsible as Supervisor, He frequently had S6OO of other peo ple’s money In his pocket, ana what waa to hinder hla taking his duds and leaving with It. Mr. Martin showed that one respectable man was as good as ten whisky-heads, [Applause by the free man from the Thirteenth.} The motion to make nominations was agreed to. A reconsideration of the vote was moved by Mr. Perry, in order to get a representative from each ward, and let them make the nominations. A tall freeman moved a committee of two from each ward be appointed to make nominations. Mr. Beatty seconded the freeman’s motion. The tall freeman, who wanted to be Constable, dis cussed parliamentary law. So did Mr. Martin. So did several other people. The Chair thought it a technical question,—a parley about words. A freeman with bushy hair moved the committee consist of taxpayers not candidates for office. This -was frowned down by everybody, especially those who wanted to have office. . The gentleman with bushy hair thought a better ticket could bb got up on his plan. Nobody seemed to agree with him. The motion for a committee was agreed to. The freeman with bushy again trotted out his • hobby. . A .. It waa suggested that If it waa earned out there could be po committee. . The motion to leave off the ran*^****** was agreed The Committee, when organlxod* represented the Eighth, Ninth, Torch, Eleventh, Twelfth, Thirteenth, Fouit' ; utb. and FiftoouHi Wards, the members bt-l::g David Scan ran, Charles M, Ellis, P. McArdle, Michael Mulvey, James Cvruello, J. Halloran, J. McNamara, etc., etc. A number of gentlemen were ruled, out as being candidates. The Committee retired to the rear end of the hall to conduct their buriness, and were soon surrounded by candidates. After a few minutes, they went down In the saloon in order to give the subjects more thorough examination. After a long time, a freeman with a short clay-pipe moved a committee bo appointed to wait on tho'Com mittco of Nomination, and inquire whether they wanted any lunch, and also whether they were ready to report progress. Citizen William Boss was sent on that errand, and was ordered not to stop to take a drink. In a few minutes another committee was detailed to keep an eye on Citizen Bass. The Committee sent to watch the Committee sent to see if the Committee was ready to report, stated that Freeman Bass reported the Committee would soon bo back. It was settling its bill. The Committee on Nominations reported as fol lows : SupervUor—' Thomas Wall. Awjsor —Louis Ambcrg. ColUcivr —J. J. Kelly. Toim C/crt—Daub l F. Buckley. Cojutablm— Mat Hemming, J. Worth, W. Swinbum, H. Baby, W. Williams, J. Shoemaker, M. Slavin, C. N. EUis, J. Schmidt, John Hennin, Samuel J. Harmon, Francis I’, Flanagan, and U. W. Harris. . It was moved that all names on the Republican ticket be stricken out. A freeman, not nominated for Constable, said sev eral Constables were not of the right stamp. [Cheers,] They must have men that the W.*at Side people knew, and could put their finger and mark on. The names were then on motion taken up in “rota tion.- ’ Mr. Wall was confirmed. It was moved that Louis Wolff of the Fourteenth Ward bo put on, Instead of LouitAmberg, for Assessor. E. T. Martin was also put in nomination, and Mr. Wolff’s friend accepted it. A man wanted somebody for such positions who had a real stake in the town. The tall freeman said it was ail out of order. They must first vote on Louis Ambcrg. Mr, Beatty said it was the privilege of every free man, In bis sovereign capacity, to nominate any one he pleased. The freeman with the busby hair thought it proper for the meeting to do anything it pleaded. The Chair thought anything was right. Louis Ambcrg was confirmed. John J. Kelly, being a resident of the Fourteenth Ward, was continued unanimously. Wien D. F. Buckley came up, an old friend qf Mr, Buckley asked if he had been nominated elsewhere. B, F. said he had. “ Then, by yorry,” says the old friend, “ I shall vote against you.'* Buckley was rejected, and rose to inquire if all other nominees on other tickets were to be rejected. E. T. Martin won nominated for Town Clerk. Mr. Barry was also nominated. In order to give Sir. Buckley a fair show, Mr. Beatty nominated him. Buckley’s friend opposed him on general principles, since ho would not add strength to the ticket. Buckley’s friend, being called to order, replied that ho rose to a personal question—Cushing’s Manual. That Lushed them. Ho went on to say they must have nominees from other wards than the Fourteenth. They wanted strength on the ticket, not individuality. It was moved that the business proceed. It was agreed to. Mr. Martin was nominated. Thu list of Constables was then adopted. NORTH SIDE TICKET. This is the time -for making up tickets for town officers. No family should bo without one. No tax payer should go to church to-day until be has carefully read and re-read all the nominations, and found out all be can about tho men who made them, and how ho will be out of pocket for cacl\ man elected. Let him vote for whom he pleases. Only don’t lot him rush into print. Some of the moijiing papers presented tho same of Mr. Henry Callaghan for the Clerkship of North Chicago, and now The Tribune is called upon to say that Mr. John Wagner is the man. Mr. Henry Cal laghan never did such a thing in his life, and never would, unless called upon. Following is tho People's Ticket for the town of North Chicago: Supervisor —James Handley. Collector —Col. Ezra Taylor. A^sscssor —John P, Appleberg. Town Clerk —John Wagner. Constables—Q. B. Bagnos, Nicholas Breis, Louis Morcnti, John Berry’, Thomas Moron, Ole Beudickson, and Patrick Baly. MORE WILLING ONES. West Chicago has but to call for town officers, and the following spotless gentlemen will oiler themselves as sacrifices to the public need: Collector— A. Salisbury, Supervi*or —Thomas F. Wall. Assessor— Louis Amberg. Should Mr. Salisbury not be acceptable to the citi zens, then Mr. K. U. Laughlln will meekly offer bis time and services. It is a gracious sight. BODBERTUB. Having failed to receive tho nomination for Assessor of South Chicago, Mr. Julius Rod be rt us proposes to run as an independent candidate. He is highly recom mended by the “only Republican morning-paper in Chicago,”—the paper which advertises itaelf as “in dependent in nothing,”—as “a true Republican,” “a faithful officer,” and “ a reputable citizen.” The com munity, however, seems to be for from unanimous on this point. A correspondent says: “ This Julius Rodbertus, a friend of Cb. H. Ham, is the same fellow who, at tho Auditors’ meeting of South Chicago, in October, 1871, brought in a bill for SSOO (which was voted to him), for plats and maps. These maps and plats ho borrowed from Otto Pcltzer, a map clerk In tho Board of Public Works, He told the Town Auditors that he made them for the town. After the bill of £>oo was voted to him, he next day returned tho maps to Otto Peltzer.” MODEST FLORENCE.
