2 THE TEMPERANCE QUESTION. Argument from tho "Temperance Bureau” on the Power to Revoke Licensee. A Warning to Irish Temperance Socie ties Against Wide-Awake Pol iticians. Response to tho Speeches Made at the Irish Temperance Meeting of the Bth Inst. Views of Puritans and Anti-Puri- tans. Tho Power to Ilcvoko Licenses* 7b the Editor of The Chicago Tribune: 8m: We notice that tho liquor-interest has obtained an opinion from somo of its attorneys, denying tbo powor of tho Common Council to authorize tho Mayor to revoke licensee iu cases whore liquor-sellers havo violated tho laws, and propose to influence tho action of tho Common Council at Us noxt mooting by this opinion. It Illustrates tho persistency ond inch-by-lnch op position which llquor-doolcrs always exhibit to nuy reasonable regulation of their dangerous traffic. Tho argument os published draws false con clusions from Its own 'promises, ond fails to touch tho foundation of tbo questions involved. Tho promises aro mostly disjointed, partial state ments of simple logoi propositions which all acknowledge, and do not affect tho powor claimed. WiU you please publish, for tbo infor mation of tho Council at its next mooting, tho following “powers of tho Council,” aud legal authorities defining tho nature of a license, and tho source from which tho power of revocation of a license is derived. By tho Consolidated Charter of 1803, See. 6, tho Common Council has powor: “To regulate tho selling or giving away of any ardent spirits by any shopkeeper, trader, or grocer, to bo drunk in any shop, store, or grocery, outhouse, yard, garden, or othor place within tho city.” Sec. 7: “To license, regulate, and restrain tavern-keepers, grocers, and keepers of ordina ries, or victuollng, or ocher houses or places for tho selling or giving away wines and othor liquors, whether ardent, vinous, or fermented.” Boos. 18, 15, 33, and 61 confer various powers to license, suppress, or restrain, and abate nuisances by summary process; also to mako any ordinances necessary for poiicc-rctfu lalions, and the good order of the city, and to make any ordinance that moy bo necessary to carry into effect any ordinance mado in pursu ance of tbo City Charter or its amendments, and to inflict penalties, flue and imprisonment,—not oxceeoding SSOO or imprisonment for two years. Also, by tho general incorporation act of towns and cities : “ All cities organized under any special act have the some powers that woro con ferred upon tho Cities of Springfield and Quincy by tbo charters of those cities.” Tho City Coun cil of Springfield has power : “To liceneo, tax, regulate, auctioneers, mer chants and retailors, grocers, taverns, ordinaries, hawkers, peddlorfl, etc.” “To tax, restrain, prohibit, and suppress tlppling-houses, dram-shops, gaming-houses, bawdy and other disorderly houses.” “To regulate tho police of tho city, to impose fines, and forfeitures, and penalties for the breach of any ordinance \ and provide for tho recovery and appropriation of sucu finos and forfeitures, end tlio enforcement of such penalties.” And, finally: “Tho City Council shall have powor to make all ordinances which shall bo nec essary and proper for carrying into execution tbo powers specified In this act,' so that such or dinance bo not repugnant to nor inconsistent with the Constitution of tho United States or of this State.” Tho above provisions aro broad enough to cover the exorcise of tho power of rovocatiou in all oases provided for by tho ordinances, or whore it is necessary to carry into effect any ordinance of tho city. Tho power to revoke liquor-licenses is a neces sary police-power included in tho power to re strain, prohibit, and suppress tippling-houses and dram-shops, and in the power to impose fines, forfeitures, and penalties for tho breach of any ordinance; and, os such, cannot bo alienated from tho proper authorities by any grant or license authorizing tho sale of liquor m such places. Legislatures cannot divest them selves or tho police-power if they would. (Chief Justice Rodfiold, Thorpe vs. B. AB. B. B. Co., 27 Vt., 149.) Tho granting of a license is the exercise of a police-power, and its revocation upon good cause, shown in a lawful manner, is a necessary police-power 5 and, as above shown, tho State or Council cannot deprive itself of the power of revocation. Tho following authorities ore con clusive : “ A license granted for one year is not a con tract, and is annulled by a prohibitory law. It is a moro police-regulation, intended to regulate trade, prevent injurious practices, and promote the good ordor and welfare of tho community, and liable to bo modified and repealed whenever, in tho judgment of tho Legislature, it failed to accomplish its objects.” (Caldor vs. Kurby, 5 Gray, 597). “ Licenses to coll liquor are not contracts be tween tho Stato and licensee, giving tho latter vested rights protected on general principles,” etc. “Such licenses are moro temporary permits to do what otherwise is unlawful, and are not prop erty in any legal or constitutional sonso” (Metropolitan Board of Excise vs. Borne ot al., MN.Y.,G57). “In both tho legal and popular sense, tho term license implies no right or estate convoyed or coded, no binding contract between parties, but mere leave and liberty to bo enjoyed as matter of indulgence at tbo will of the party wbo gives tho license. It confers no vested right, estate, or interest, but Is at all times revocable at tho pleasure of tbo party that grants it” (State va. Holmes, 38 N. 11., 227). Wo forbear quoting other authorities. Tho case referred to in tho published opinion from Dillon on Corporations is in no way applica ble. Tho Town Council of Columbia had power by ordinance to impose fines for tho purpose of enforcing ordinances, to tho amount of 850 only, without power of forfeiture ; and an ordinance which imposed a Hue of SSO and forfeiture of liccnso for violation was hold to bo un authorized, as tho power conferred hod been ex hausted. Hut tho City Council of Chicago has power to iulliet penalties, flues, and forfeitures, not exceeding . SSOO ; consquoutly tho powor of revoking or forfeiting a license cost ing only SSO doost uot oxhnust that power. De ludes, the doctrine has boon laid down by tho Supremo Court of this State, that “cities may exorcise powers by ordinance, regulating tho salo of intoxicating drinks, beyond those author ized by tho general laws of tho State. . Greater penalties may bo allowed." (City of Pokin vs. bmclzal, 21 111., 401: Roberts vs. Ogle, JlO HI., iw). ’ No further argument is necessary to show that tho Common Council has power to authorize tho revocation of licenses to soli liquors. Fur thermoro, under tho above-quoted powers of tho charter, there is good reason to beliovo (Imt they havo tho power to prohibit absolutely (ho salo of such liquors, whenever tho moral sense of tho community will demand and sus tain an ordinance to that effect. And, if any court could bo found Bullicioutly subservient to tho liquor-intorost to decide, unuor tho charter powers “to mako any ordinances necessary for police-regulations and tho good order of tho city." ana “necessary to carry into effect any ordinance made in pursuance of tho City Char ter and Us amendments," that tho Common Council had no powor to provide for revoking a license in cases where a liquor-dealer had vio lated tho conditions of his license and bond, tho ordinances of tho city, and tho laws of tho State, then It would bo tho duty of tho Council, under tho above powers, “to re strain, prohibit, aud suppress Uppllng-hounos and drara-flUops " altogether, and thereby end tho publio legalized existence of a dangerous trattlo, which causes not ouly intemperance, pau perism, and oriroo, but openly defies and violates laws most necessary to tho poaco and order of society, as well as tho perpetuity of Republican institutions. What other business occupation would dare to violate tbo laws with impunity ? Liquor-soiling alone inspires its employes with the spirit of lawlessness and disregard of other’s rights. It ouly browbeats our Common Councils and Legislatures, attempts to paralyze the Kxocutive arm, and degrade tbo Judiciary. To discuss tbo power which the Mayor has. Independent of tho Common Oounoll, to rovolco licenses,- would make,tills comraunioatlou too lengthy.'-Wo will only add. ih conclusion, Unit, should tho Oommoa Connell repeal nil laws upon tho subject, tho Mayor would still havo power to revoke licenses in ovory enso now provided for In tho ordinances. Temteranok Bureau. Ouicaoo, Juno 10,187.1. Now Tompornnco Societies and Wltlc- Awalco ,Folitlclnn«*«A Warning to Irish Temperance Societies*. To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune: Sir : A person having many years* acquaint ance with that wide-awake class known by tho nomoof Chicago politicians must havo his at tention Arrested, if ho hoops an oyo to tho dally proBS, by tho early and vigorous preparations thoy aro already making for tho onsuiug fall olcctlou. It affords mo Inexpressible pleasure, 1 must say, as I am personally acquainted with many of them, to boo those political notorieties jostlo ono ouothor In their earnest efforts to become Presidents, Cor responding and Recording Secretaries, of Irish Temperance Societies, without a mo* moot's delay. Certainly this must bo a source of vast consolation to ihoir wives, children, and friends; and lot us, with a truo spirit of Chris tian lovo and law-and-ordor principles, hasten to offer our congratulations, and try to .evoke uni versal joy, for tbo astonishing conversion of those outlandish Inebriates. Another grand fea ture noiicoablo in thoso zealous, wide-awake converts to Temperance is, that thoy aro not only willing to bocomo tho loaders of old Irish tem perance organizations and of tho members en rolled in them, but thoy aro rapidly forming now ones, with tbo most fascinating, attractive, and patriotic names, as “Erin’s llopo," “Flanagan* Mackey’s Pride of Erin,” and so on. Tho for mer society, “Erin’s Hope,” proposes tlio ad vantages of mutual life-insurance at tho rate of “ $1 per capita for member dying /” rec ommends an immediate departure from tho tawdry paraphernalia and nonsensical parados of old Irish Temporanco Societies; ana earnestly enjoins tho members to perfect simplicity in all their ways,.but especially so in two points: First, to bo very simple in behoving all tho political wido-awaUo loaders want thorn to boliovo; and. second, to bo very simple in willingly doing all the political wido-awako leaders require of them to do, for no characteristic is so pleasing to our American politicians ns simplicity in Irish people. I suppose you have long uluco asked, What is tho writer of this aiming at ? Well, my answer' is t Guard tho religious and united spirit and character of your glorious Irish Temporanco So cieties, which have never yet boon known to stain their sacred banners with tbo corruption of poli tics ; and take warning in time that whoever in troduces politics within the hallowed walls of your assemblies is. introducing anarchy, dis union, and contention among tlio members, ond, as a consequence, personal dislike and rancor, which years may not bo able to cook Thoso schemers aro wolves In shoop’s clothing.

Bowaro of them I Thoy havo their well-arranged speculative designs iu turning your societies into political merchandise; and, howovor candid, ardent, or honest their ar guments to tho contrary may seem, they purpose to soli you when tho time comes to tho ulguoet bidder, no matter whether his principles aro anti-Catholic, anti-Irish, or both,—too many of which stamp wo havo iu powor to-day for our people's advancement in Ohicago. Look before you, Irish Societies, aud don't bo lured by enthusiasts who .bellow out for law-and-ordor candidates. Thoro was none iu Israel prayed lender than did tho Pharisee for virtue and religion, whilst, at.heart, ho was in full fellowship with Lucifer, and talked religion whilst crucifying God. Only look back over a space of seventy-two years of time to that sod period of Ireland's history, and view.

Take core, then, that tbeso suddenly mado neophytes of Temperance have no sinister, sol fish motives at heart in calling up those Irish Temporanco conventions and mootings, Borne assort, and believe, that their object iu this is to examine aud survey the field before them, and thou, by a tact peculiar to adroit politicians, adopt tho proper schemes and arrangements to bring tho whole associations into tho voting market noxt fall,—a dishonor, I trust, that flhau never stain their immaculate banners. Over look any seemingly harsh remarks. Thoy aro not intended, but aro dictated by lovo. Chicago, Juno 12, 1873. Ah ImsmiAN. Tho Irish Temperance meeting on (lie Stli Inst.—A Itoply to IVhot Was Suit! on That Occasion. To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune: Sm: The Teidukb bos quite fully and very fairly represented, or rather furnished a means of publicity to, tho good sonso and tho nonsense seeking expression on the “ Temperance” alias tho “ Boor” question. Tho report of “ A meeting of Irish citizens favoring tho causo of Temperance,” hold 11 yes terday afternoon at Wahl's Hall,” published in to-day’s Tbibune, deserves a passing notice; for, while tho object of the mooting was not only proper, but laudable, some of tho speakers (if they are correctly reported) were certainly very intemperate—in their speech, and decidedly nonsensical. Who, for instance, needs tho assurance of one gentleman, that the honest, “ hard-working Irishmen” of Chicago cannot “sympathize with any movement which gives tho rum-sollor per sonal liberty to deal out death and destruction on tho Sabbath-day”? Docs this gentleman know of any honest man of any nationality that does sympathize with any such movement? Boos he know that any man of any nationality in Chi cago proposes or contemplates such a move ment? And what does ho moan when he says (os re ported), “ Any blow aimed at tho sanctity of tho Sabbath was a blow at tho religion of tho Irish ?” Surely, the speaker, whatever he may bo him self religiously, will not protend that “there ligion of tho Irish,” is Puritanical; and yet, ho uses that stereotyped Puritanical catch-phrase, ‘“sanctity of tho Sabbath,” as if ho really be lieved “ tho religion of tho Irish ” was inherited from Cromwell's “Boundhoads.” But his closing sentence (as reported) is a good deal worse than nonsensical, 110 said (as re ported): " Tho Irish would never bo found fra ternizing with tho Gormans in such an unholy warfare. Hero he indulges in two assumptions that aro monstrous overy way. Ue assumes, first, that “ such an unholy warfare ” is now rife, or con templated by somebody ; and, second, that “ tho Gormans” aro, or aro to bo, engaged m it on the “ unboly ” side. Of course, his right to an nounce to tho world that “tho Irish would never bo found fraternizing," Ac., is not to bo ques tioned. But could he not, with at least equal truth and propriety, lot the world know that neither “ tho Gormans ” nor any other civilized people wore engaged, or. aro at all likely to be engaged, in “ such na nuboly warfare ” as ho assumes to exist or to bo approaching ? And this gentleman, says the report, “assail ed boor from a sanitary standpoint, and claimed that tboro was moro nourishment in a loaf of broad than in a hogshead of Iho best Bavarian beer." Doubtless this speaker thought he know what ho was talking aboutj but it is quit© evi dent (if ho is correctly reported) that lie did not. Why did ho not toll his hearers how a small loaf of broad contains “ moro nourish ment" than tho wholo contents of Lake Michigan? Does this gentleman drink water? If ho does, how much must ho swallow in ordor to bo “nourished” thereby as much as if bo hod oaten “a loaf of broad?” Han bo over hoard of that “nourishing” article of food called tho potato? Does ho know that, on tho scientific scale of “ nourishment,” po tatoes and boor stand about allkb ? And would lie abolish tho potato because ho may have dis covered, or somebody may havo told him, that there is “ moro nourishment in alonf of broad” than in—say, u Ijaskot full, or a pot full, of po tatoes,—ovou“Munstor potatoes,” famous since tho lime they Wore planted by Raleigh In VougUufi bo gay. Rut tills speaker did uot contlno himoolf to tho “nourishment" notion. Tho report says ho made Uiis astounding assertion: “Tho liquor dealers had gono mad m tho extravagance of thoir demands, and now wanted to scatter dis ease and death on tho Hohbath day." Might It not bo suspected, from such a speci men of “ froo speech," that tho orator himself had “ gono mod *’ ? If ho has not, why don’t ho raise his eloquent voioo against “scattering disease and death " on tho uix days of tho weak that ho does uot regard as “ Habhaths ?" Surely, if selling liquor (for it must bo chari tably supposed Oiat is what ho moans when ho talks of “ scattering disease and death") Isronlly “scattering disease and death," it ought not to bo tolerated for a mo ment, on any day whatever, at any time, or in any place. And yot, it is to bo fairly inferred from hie speech that the business of “scatter THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE : SATURDAY, • JUNE* 1.4;. * lug diseabo and death " may bo 11 vory tolomblo ana toho endured,” on ovory day of tho week except tho 11 Sabbath,” Still another gentleman “bade his Irish fol low-citizens godspeed in their endeavor to re claim fallen humanity.” Very excellent that; and, if lie hod stopped right there, perhaps no ono would object to bidding godspeed to him. But it seems ho did not stop there. ITo went on. And tho report says that lie sold : “Tho hearts and souls of mou had boon aroused by tho claims of ibo Gormans, who would not only deso orato tho Sabbath, but turn it into a day of de bauchery.” Tliis is really too had. Thoro iu no excuse for such wholooalo slander of a pcoplo nmoU loos given to dobauohory, or to tbo dese cration of anything really holy, than many othor peoples. Tho report says, further, that “Romarknof a similar, lb might bo said vory similar, nature woro mode by” certain other gentlemen; and that “tho meeting adjourned until Sunday noxt.” Tbo reporter doirt call Sunday Sabbath, ho it remembered. Now, before “Sunday noxt" arrlvon. would it not bo woll for tho gontlomon above referred to, and their 00-workors in tho good causo of Tom pornnco, to endeavor to find out what thoy want to do, and whether they cannot manage to do it without indulging in propoatorous misrepresen tation and wholesale Blander ? Surely thoy can not seriously thluk for ono moment that the Gormans of Ohicago aro not as deeply interested in preventing aud avoiding “disease,” and “death,” and “destruction, as tho Irish, or any othor class of our population. And do know that “Temperance*" as known and advocated in Ireland, and as E reached by tbo ministers of “ religion of tho rish,” is altogether a different article from that which is labeled with tho samo name hi Now England? In Ireland, Temperance moans Tom- Eoranco. And the'Temporanco advocated thoro > voluntary Temporanco. And tho Temporanco E reached to all professing “the religion of tho riah ” is Temporanco in all things. It is not aggressive. It does not oooroo. It trios to per suade. It never threatens. It deals in words of ohoor and encouragement, not in finos and penalties. Abovo all, It is in everything Tem perate. Tho Now England article, os has boen said, is altogether different. It is not Tom- F orato in all things, nor Temperate in anytliiug tis prohibition. It is aggressive. It coerces- It threatens. It imposes fines and penal tics. It is zealous, and Intemperate In its zeal. It is tho Maino law. It preaches no longer. Tlio preacher of “ tho religion "of Now England, preaches Temperance no more. Ho no longer trios to persuades men to bo Tompor ato. So goes in to ftno and imprison them If thoy aro not. And, with a degree of mullabnoss that would bo disgraceful in an ordinary array mulOj ho will soo no distinction, nor mako any discrimination, between forty-rod whisky ana lager-boor, between cognac brandy and Ohio ci der, between Jamaica rum aud Catawba wine, between tbo gins of England and Holland and tho vintage of California. Tbo gontlomon nbovo referred to havo boon taking lessons in a bad school. It is an old Pu ritanical trick to orrogato all tho light and knowl edge to Its own sido, and to stigmatize tho othor for its Ignorance. Tho “ Roundheads ” wore “ tho children of God.” Tho Cavaliors woro “ tho sons of Belial.” “Resolved [said tho Pil grim fathers!, That tho earth is tho Lord's and that it is the righteous, inheritance of His Saints.” And thou, desiring to rob tho native Americans of that day of their lands and hunt ing-grounds. thoy further “ resolved,” to effect the ond in view, thus j “ Alcsolucd, That wo aro His Saints.” And so tbo “Saints” entered on their inheritance. The speakers at yesterday's mooting, con sciously or unconsciously, have commenced playing a similar game. Tho virtue of temper ance is theirs. Tho vico of intemperance they essay to fasten on the Germans. They wax elo quent, abusive, nonsensical. They ought to know bettor, and to spook of their neighbors (don't thoy know that tho Gormans, oven when not living noxt door, are their neighbors ?) with out such on entire absence of tho spirit of Chris tian charity. Did thoy ever see a scene like this ? A father and mother with their children—three, or four, or balf-a-dozon—out walking on a pleasant warm Sunday afternoon. Tho father is a mechanic. Ho has worked hard and steady all the preceding week. Ho needs recreation and fresh air, and sunlight. His wife and children also need recre ation, fresh air, and sunlight. Thoy have boon walking for hours, and are somewhat weary. Thoy outer a suburban garden and seat them selves at a table under the shade of a spreading tree. Perhaps tho younger children roll on tho grass. Perhaps one or two of tho litfclo ones dauco to tho music of tho band occupy ing a pavilion in tho oootro of tho gar den. Tho parents look on, and think that, after all, life has some compensation for those who toil. After a while, thoy feel rested. Tho music ceases for a space, and tho children collect around tho table. The mother opens tho basket. Its contents are varied. There is a loaf of broad. Not the loaf that Mr. J. D. O’Connor bits an alyzed, but probably a bettor one. There aro slices of ham, and pieces of sausage, and it may bo a roast chicken. Very likely there is some oheoflo, and it is almost certain that there is a little pot of mustard. Well, tho bosket is emptied. Its contents aro distributed. Everybody around tho tablo has a good appetite. Tho children ore obedient and well-behaved; and tho older help tho young er, whilo tho mother helps all. Thoy oat and are glad. Tho grass, tho dowers, tho trees, tho Lrds, tho breeze, tho sun, and tho sky aro iu sympathy with them. But presently a wont Is felt. Father, mother, children, all feel it. Thoy aro all thirsty. Thoy, each and all, want some thing to drink. A young man is seen serving something in glasses at an adjoining table, whore one or two other families aro seated. Tho something in tho glasses in lager-boor. The father calls tho attention of tho waiter, and holds up two or threo or moro Angel’s. That moans two or threo or moro glasses of beer wanted. Tho beer is brought and paid for. Lot us hope that it is good and fresh. If it is (and is so almost always), it is drank gratefully, soberly, Temper ately. Father, mother, children, each and all, ore satisfied with enough. Not one of thorn drinks to excess, or Intomporatoly. And, after they ore thoroughly rested, restored, ana recreated, thoy quietly and peaceably return to their homo, grateful that tho Sunday has boon to them a day of rest and recreation, and prepared to encounter cheerfully and hopefully tho toils, and cares, and privations of tho work-days of tho week before them. Now, can tho orators of yesterday see any “unholy warfare ” on tho “ sanctity of tho Sabbath.” or tho “religion of the Irish,’’ in this ? And it is just this which tho Germans ore unwilling to givo up, and ought not to glvo up. It is a right of which no government, not meanly tyrannical, would attempt to deprive them. And, If “ warfare ” is declared against them because of tboir opposition to Puritanical Sabbath legislation, and ihoro aro boor-prohibi tion ordinances and police-orders, then it will bo found that there aro Irishmen, and not a few, who will “bo found fraternizing with tho Gor mans "in that “warfare.” Glendale. „ Ouioaoo, June 0,1873.

I hoard him preach Bopubllcanism twemy-flvo ycaoa ago, when ho was only about 1G years old, and ho has preached it over since; so ho must have boon a turncoat rather early in Ufa. “T.

With tho exception of Froo-Trado and tho abolition of tbo Corn-laws, all tho other groat measures were passed after Bright joined tho Ministry, 110 was tho groat champion of all of them. “T. B.

Destruction of tliu Terrapin Tower* Tbo Niagara Falls Gazelle thus notices tho de struction of “ Terrapin Towor," long ago ono of tho moot conspicuous objects around tbo Falls : “ During tbo past fifty years millions of pooplo from ovory inhabitable part of tho globo have soon tbo round, wootbor-boaton towor. built upon tbo narrow lodge of rooks upon tuo ox trorao bank of tbo Uorso-shoo Fall, and bavo en joyed from its summit tbo maguillcont view which it afforded of tbo tumultuous rapids above, and tbo mighty rush of waters below. They will loara with sinooro regret that tbo venerable mass ot masonry bos boon destroyed. Tho tower was built in 1823, by Judgo Porter, was forty-fivo foot in height, and twelve foot in diameter at its base. Tho masonry was masuivo, and its hardness and durability many havo thought to havo boon abundantly demonstrated. Hut standing in such an extremely exposed po sition, subject at all times to tbo notion of tho spray and the ilorco boating winds, and in tho winter months ice-bound and frostbitten, tbo stones and wood havo been gradually yielding to tbo olomonts, and tho structure was pronounced unsafe lust full, and has boon closed to tbo pub lic over sinco.

Beni & Block, counsel for Messrs. Shanahan & "West, mado a motion boforo Judge Blodgett, yesterday, for a now trial. Mr. Block, In arguing tho oaso for his clients, hold: First—That tho potliionors oould not filo a petition to hovo tho respondents adjudicated bankrupts upon scoured papor, it not being claimed, as shown by tho pleadings, or on trial, that tho security was inadequate, and no offer being mado to surrender tho security. To sus tain the petition tho debt of tho petitioner must bo provoablo under tho Bankruptcy act, and it was argued that under Soo. 20 of that .. aot, » creditor . .oould . . only prove a scoured claim by surrendering his secur ity or showing that his security was inadequate. Counsel oitod, in support of his position, Soo. 20 of tho Bankrupt act, Avory and Johann 3 Y. 8.. 80; Bigoby and Willis 8 B. B. 81; and in ro W. B. Alexander 4 B. B. 45. Second— I That respondents wero Act liable to petitioners for tho noto to plaintiffs upon which bankruptcy proceedings wore based, because tboro had boon, .with consent of tho pe titioners, a discharge of tho noto by ex tension and acceptance of a now noto, for ono-batf tho amount, and a draft drawn by peti tioners on tho respondents for tbo other half, of said noto, which draft respondents had prom ised in writing to pay. Third—That, even if tbo noto was not discharged, yot there was an agree ment to oxtond tbo noto, by which petitioners woro bonnd; that, nndor such agreement, peti tioners had received and hold tho now note of tho respondents for a port of tho old noto, and had drawn on respondents lor the balance, and that tho petitioners oould only rescind their agreement of exten sion, and maintain thoir action against re spondents upon tho old noto, by placing tho re spondents in statu quo, that is, returning to re spondents their now which had never boon done. Counsel cited Murphy v. Lockwood, 31 111., 611; Murphy v. MoYiokor, 4 McLean, 253, and othor cases. Fourth—That no adjudicatory decision could bo entered upon tbo vordict, be cause tho jury did not thorouy find respondents guilty of an offouso under thoßankrapt aot. Tho language of tho vordict was*: “Wo, the jury, find respondent guilty of suspension of thoir com mercial papor, but not gully of tho othor chargee. 1 ’ To bo an act of bankruptcy, tbo suspension of commercial papor must continuo for not loss fourteen days and bo nnoxonsed; tho time of tho suspension was tho essence of tho offense, and tho jury did not find that there bad boon a suspension of tho time required, nor was thoro in tho vordict anything from which that deficien cy could bo supplied; and that a judgment upon such a vordlot and following its terms would not •be valid.. Tho counsel cited Hinckley v. West, 4 Gilman, IS6, and othor' cases. And lastly, that tho Court orrod in excluding tho ovidonco of tho contents of a letter received by respondents from Btottauer Brothers agreeing to on extension of thoir njte against respondents. Mr. Tenney, for tho petitioners, in reply in sisted that tbo petition'would lio upon tho se cured claim, citing in support thereof 0 Bank ruptcy, Bog. 183, and further, that tho petition was not hosed upon tho secured papor alone, but that a part of (ho claims of peti tioners against respondents was unsecured. Ho argued that thoro was no binding or completed agreement for an extension, nor was, thoro any discharge of tho noto, but that ovoh.if the particular note referred to had boon discharged, aa claimed, yot petitioners had thoir claims against respondents exceeding tho amount uocossary to enable them to maintain tho peti tion : that tho vordict was sufficiently clear : and that chore was no error or exclusion of ovidonco of contents of tho letter from Stottouor Broth ers. Tho Court will auuonnco bis decision do Mon day rooming noxt, at 10 o'clock. ▲ SEWING-MACHINE PATENT SUIT. Thohnportaut Bowing-maoliiue patent infringe ment cose, Ross v.

Stark County, 111, At a mass-meeting of tho Stork County (111.) Farmers* Association, at .Wyoming, June 7, Mr. Funk offered tho following preamble and resolu tions, which wore adopted: Whereas, The Farmers’ National Association ara not political In their character, but stand united with out regard to old party Issues, bub to impport only such men as we hcllcvo to bo hottest and capable for olllce in tho Legislature of any State, or tho Congress of tho United 1 States, and that will pledge thcniHclvci) to enact such laws aa will bring relief to tho farmer*, mchaulca, and loborlng men of tho Northwest; there fore, lijeolvedy That it fa tho duty of tho hour, and the mis alon of tho Fanners’ National Association to place tho States and Government in the bunds of honest men, and through them to obtain from Congress anil tho different Stales auch legislation as may ho necessary tp control and limit rates and charges of existing linos of railroads and ship transportation. Resolved, That cheap transportation, both of per sons and property, being most conducive to tho free movement of tho people, and tho widest Interchange and conoumptlon of tho produce of tho different parts of tho Union Is essential to tho welfare and prosperity of tho country. Jfcwfwd, That to regulate and to establish again our crippled commerce throughout tho country and to cuablo railroad aud ship corporations to transport persons and property cheap from ono section of tho country to another It Is essential that (hose great cur- S orations should have cheap material with which to ulhl their railroads and ships and to encourage our navies. Wo Insist that the duty on all the material used in building theso great carriers ought to bo im mediately removed and placod’on tho free list. Jlesolvtd, That tho Farmers’ National Association ore not hostile to tho best Interests of tho railroad corpora tion, and wo bellovo that the Interest of tho fanners aud railroads are idem tilled, and that one cannot do well without the other. |Uf«oh'«i, • That our last Legislature deserves our sincere thanks for that part of tho Railroad law* pro hibiting unjust discrimination between parties ship ping from tho samo stations, going tho same way and to tho samo place.
