North Evanston bad been filed with said Trustees; nor were those who voted for organi sation informed that an ordinance had been passed by Evanston annexing tho lauds referred to in the petitioner’s petition to Evanston; that tho Trustees of Evanston took no action thereon for annexation of said land until tho 27th of January, 1873: and that, when on that day they passed tho ordinance annexing it, they had no tice of the proceedings of tho County Judge in fixing tho time and place of said voto for organi sation, and wore fully apprised that said election was to tako place next day; but illegally, at the instigation of petitioner John Culver, and others, paused said ordinance In order to thwart and embarrass, if possible, the proposed organization ; and that after said notices of vote had boon posted, and boforo the vote had been taken, tho matter was discussed in tho Evanston Index, tho local weekly news paper, as coming off on tho 28th of January, 1873, and tho general belief of tho inhabitants Was to tho same effect. William Jocks, of North Evanston, in his affidavit, averred that on the oth of January, 2878, ho prepared and wrote the petition for vil lage organization by name of North Evanston, which was subsequently signed by more than thirty legal votois of the territory, and filed with the Clerk of the County Court, at which date the County Judge ordered to ho published the notice of election, to behold 26th January next afterdate of the notice; that the petition was presented by affiant for signatures at a public mooting, and before any person had signed the petition, de ponent* erased with his own hands, by pencil marks, tho words “ or otherwise ; ” and that ho was directed by tho Judge to write notices of election, inserting tho 23th January, 1873, as tho day for holding it, and such was his intention. Tho affidavit of Samuel B. Pocnoy, of North Evanston, showed that ho attended tho public mooting hold in the school-house on tho 10th January, 1878 ; that Mr. Jonks there rood a peti tion for village organization, which was adopted by tho meeting ; that ho was the first person who eigned the same ; that before ho did so ho 'board Hr. Jonks toll a number of citizens that ho had crossed out tho words, “or otherwise,” in said petition, as they were mere surplusage; and that he knows that tho words wore crossed out at the time ho signed said petition. Tho counsel for tho plaintiff read an affidavit by John Pickett, which stated that ho had road the affidavit of William M. Jonks, and was pres ent at tho mooting referred to therein; that tho petition proposed was road over to tho meeting, and the words, “or otherwise," wore rend as a part thereof at tho time; that it was then, in chat condition, adopted by a vote, and signatures colled for; that ho signed tho same, understand ing the words “or otherwise” to bo apart thereof; that ho bad not then road it over to see whether eald words wore erased or not; that the first ho know of tho matter was the next day, when there was some discussion about tho effect of those words, but bo hoard no such discussion while the mooting was being hold; that ho proposed at tho meeting that Culver’s property bo not included In tho petition, stating that if it were done, Culver would no longer approve tho organiza tion; but this proposition was voted down at the meeting, Tho counsel for tho defense urged that it was not in tho power of tho Court to decide tho mat ter, which shouldboleft for decision solely to the Attorney General. Ho depleted in glowing terms the immense probabilities of tho young suburb, and showed the evil which an adverse decision would cause. Tho counsel for tho petitioner stood for tho legal rights of bis client, holding that tho error In tho notices of election annulled them, no matter whether tho Inhabitants agreed mutually to misunderstand their litoral moaning. lie showed that his client Culver, owning ono-tonth of the entire property, was deeply interested in the suit. Boforrlng to tho remarks that tho Criminal Court was not tho ono in which to try tho case, he mentioned tho alteration of words, characterized it as forgery, and claimed that his case was before tho right court. Tho Judgo hold tho matter under advisement. THE BOOTH TAJIK LANDS. James E. Clarke, of Rochester, lad., yester day filed a bill against tho South Park Commis sioners, Chauncoy T. Bowen, Paul Cornell, George W. Gage, L. B. Bidway, and Potter Palmer; affirming that ho Is the owner in foe simple of tho north half of tho wost ono-half of tho northeast quarter of Section 24, 38, 14, con taining twenty acres of land, valued at $160,000: that said Commissioners, under authority of thoiraots of incorporation (Fob. 24, and April 10, I860), claimed the rights of possession and occupation of all of tho lands named in sold act, of wuioh complainant's laud, abovo described, formed a part; that various notices were served, and other acts done for the securing such possession; and that complainant’s lands wore selected, among others, for the purposes of said park. Complainant represents that said act conferred no right or title whatever in said Com missioners to said lands, as decided by tho Su premo Court of this State: since which doclsloh {he respondents have withdrawn from com {ilainant’sland, and left him in possession. by bin enaht, although tho Oorrtmißßlonora eilll main tain » fonco along tho Treat 'Uno of said Section 34, and Across the public highway loading from complainant's lona to tho City of Chicago. Complainant noxt shows that tho Commia elonors havo leaned bonds in renewal of bonds, etc., under an not Issued Juno 10,1871, andmndo assessments on property in tho towns referred to la said act (South Chicago, Hyde Park, and Lake) for tho purpose or paying for thouands to bo so taken as aforesaid os por ostlmato mado by them, which assessment they aro attempting to collect. Ho represents that said aotk, or Febru ary and April, 1860, aro unconstitutional, as it authorises tho taking of lands without consent, and without any public necessity existing; that his lands aro in tho town of Hydo Park only, seven miles south of tho centra of Chicago; that said town is a rural hamlet,’ sparsely peopled, Its population not ■ exceeding a low thousand souls, and so remote from tho city that it can ho of'no value as a place of recreation and re sort ; and he shows that the said acts aro In con flict with Sees, l and oof tho Constitution of this Btato. and Section 6 of Art. 8, of tho samo Constitution, etc., oto.s and further, that tho act authorizing. tho appointment cf ofllcors by a Judge of tho Circuit Court is ia vio lation 'of tho samo Constitution; and that' a majority of said ofllcors haro boon appointed by a Judge or Judges of said Circuit Court. - Farther, that tho act of Juno 10, 1871, is in violation of tho samo Constitution, in that It Is an amendment and change of a charter of a corporation by a special* law attempted tb ho concealed by general phraseology; and that it him never boon adoptodby a voto of tbp people (5T said towns, nor by a majority of their legal voters; wherefore lie insists that there exists np lawful moans whereby tho said Oommisslon oi3 oan collect such assessments for tho payment of said land os aforesaid. Complainant further shows that tho bonds negotiated amount to $3,000,000; tbfvt tho entire sum has boon expend ed, together, with nearly albthat has boon collect ed ; aud that whatever funds they oan command aro altogether inadequate to the purchase of any considerable nart of complainant's lands. ' The amount tho Commissioners estimated they would have to pay for all tho lands they would require 'woe $1,260,000; whereas thoy aro alleged to u&vo already expended all they can obtain, from every source, and have yet to acquire or pay, for 800 aoros.iEvon if.tho proper condemnation proceed ings were taken, therefore, the complainant urges that tho Commissioners would bo unable to pay tho value of his land. :Ho afllrms that there aro judgments unsatisfied" against tho Commission ers, amounting to $250,000; that thoy owo a further indebtedness of $600.000; that thoy havo contracted with parties for tno purchase of land which they aro not able to pay for, and that oven tho interest on such; purchases is unprovided for; that by the report of tho County Commis sioners, of Ist December last, .the Park Com missioners wore shown to havo not more than $30,000 on hand, tholr annual necessary expendi ture being sot forth at $140,000; that tho limits of tho Park, as they are now settled, do not include the complainant’s land, but that tho maps show that it is part of tho land on which tho bonds are secured, thus creating a cloyd on complainant’s titlo. Ho afllrms that the appoint ment of tho Commissioners has not beep con firmed'by tho State Senate, accordingja law; and prays that tho bonda-moy be declared by tho Court not a lion on his land, and that tho de fendants ho restrained entering on the land, or commencing proceedings against him for its pos session in the Circuit Courts EXTRAORDINARY OUAROEH AGAINST Z.

TUB WEST CHICAGO ELECTION, Judge Williams was occupied, at the coming in of court, yesterday morning, in hearing argu ments on a petition for uu injunction restrain ing County Clerk Poliak delivering tho assess ment-rolls of tho Ton'll of West Chicago to tho nowly-oloolod Assessor, Adam L. Amborg, and restraining said Ambcrg from making such as sessments until tho final decision of tho Court iu tho cause People ex rol. Bout H. Foss ot a!., to doolaro tho late town election of Wout Chica ?o void. Tho reader of The Tmmmu is already iiUy acquainted with tho facts that are made the basis of this proceeding. Tho counsel for defendant, in speaking against tho proposed injunction, remarked that it was of vital public Importance that tho assessment bo Crocooded with. Ho considered tho Assessor to o tho most Important officer iu tho municipal machinery. He did not understand how tho luostion of a contested election could bo settled In a court of ohauoory. The question is simply to decide whom is tho proper officer. Tho tax payer has not the power Co interfere, aud hinder tho officer from doing his duty. Tho matter ought to bo decided at once, as tho Assessor hod hardly time to got through his work under tho moat favorable circumstances. Counsel stated that ho did not appear merely as the counsel of Hr. Amborg, but in tho interests of. the public, who would suffer if tho Injunction was allowed. Counsel for the people agreed with tho state THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE: WEDNESDAY, APRIL 1(3, 18733. *znonfc that the question was one of pnhllo Inter est, ond not ono solely of contested election. Tho interest of tho public Is thus i Tho Constitution oxprossly requires that somo person must make tho assessment who has booh elected, and thus no ono can do it wlio is not olootod. Tho Irijnrv now feared is that Mr. Amborg is going to make an aaaossm'ent. Under existing circumstances it Cannot bo legally collootod ; so that tho only thing loft was to obtain a temporary Injunction, without which tho taxes will bo lost. Judge Williams thought tho case ono of con siderable importance, aud, na ho could not givo it sufficient attention at tho time. ho continued tho caso until noxt Saturday morning. Thoro are numbers of tax-fighters in tho city who will never pay if thoy con help it, and, if thoy fight tills cause on tho ground tuat tho Assessor Ims not tho power to collect, and suc ceed, not ono dollar will bo collected from those not inclined to pay.

Tho funeral was at tended by Mr. Constant Qobot, who was a companion of tho deceased in his hard ships on too plains, and about 200 members of tho French Mutual Society of this city. When it is stated that any Eastern gentleman intends to start out on a western tour, every body supposes bo intends to fulfill bis contracts with tbo managers of a lecture course. While ibis applies to Mr. Boochor and Anna Dickinson, it is not strictly true of President Grant. It would bo superfluous to state that bis ob ject in coming West is not to givo a lecture in each of the principal cities. There Is much that the public would like to loam from him, but not on this tour will they learn thereof. 'Qon. Grant will leave Washington to-day, and arrive in Indianapolis on Friday, whore be will bo mot by Liout.-Col. Fred Grant. From Indian apolis the illustrious party will proceed to St. Louis, whore they will spend a few days. Idaho and the far West will next blossom with justifi able pride at receiving them, after which, on May U, Chicagoans can rejoice at beholding them.

Wo bavo authority from Mr. Thomas Morphy to deny tho report about an engagement between his sou and the daughter of tho President. Hr.

Bho graduated from Mount Holyoko Seminary, studied medi cine in Philadelphia, and, after practising her profession four years in Springfield, Mass., went to Constantinople thrbo years ago. You wouldn't think it to look at him, but Presi dent Grant is tho most restless man in tho coun try. Ho is always on tho move. There is only one placo ho can stick to, and that is tho Presidency. But yon can. never find him any where. To-day ho is at Washington, to-morrow in Now York, the next in Philadelphia, tho next at Long Branch, then back again at Washington, oto. In a word, now you soo him and now you don’t.—JVao York Graphic. Speaking of tho recent promotion of Lieut. Fred Grant, tho Army and JVduy Journal says: 41 There is little profit in criticising injustice for which thoro is no remedy, but it is not woll to disguise tho fact that groat dissatisfaction has boon created in tho appointment of a young Sec ond-Lieutenant of infantry, just from tho Mili tary Academy, to tho position of aid-de-camp on tho staff of tho Lioutonant-Gonoral, in placo of officers whoso services and experience so much hotter entitle them to such a position." Tho story In regard to Lady Ellonhorough. which originated m tho German Gazelle, ami which tola of how tho lady resided long in tho East, where sho bocamb addicted to polyandry', and had so many husbands sho hardly know what to do, is denied in tho Pall Mall OatcUc of March 20. Mrs. Isabel Barton, wifo of Capt. Burton, tho famous African explorer, who know tho lady in Damascus, says that tho slanders in regard to hor wore idle talcs invented by uowsmongors. Tho truth is that, about sixtoon years ago, sho mado up hor mind to leave Europe and Uvo in tho East. Sho ar rived at Boyrovt, Damascus, and from thero started across thotlosort to Bagdad, hav ing Bhaykh Mljovol as tho commander of her escort. She was oxtromoly beautiful, and the young Shaykh foil in lovo with and proposed to marry hor. The romantic picture ofbecoming a queon of tho desert exactly suited Lwjy Ellon borough’s wild fancies, and sho maiVyl tho chief, and ever afterwards lived honoral\ with him, a faithful wifo.
