4 THE RAILROADS. The New Passenger and Freight Tariffs. How the New Law Affects the Chicago Roads. Knotty Questions with Which the Agents Are Wrestling. Since the passage of the now law to regulate aasacuger and freight tariffs on railroads, the interested managers have had several confer luces. From the first, the general sentiment ifaa in favor of endeavoring to comply with the requirements of the law. Its constitutionality _ Fas not unquestioned, but prudent economy luggested it would be better to accept its most unreasonable terms rather than risk the heavy penalties incurred by its violation, in Base the Supreme Court should sustain the law. Community of interest prompted soncert of action. It was, therefore, agreed that each company should got up a tariff to meet the varying circumstances affecting their particular lines, and that, when prepared, a gen eral meeting should be held to compare tariffs and decide upon their adoption. The Freight Agents then withdrew, to enter upon the most difficult task ever imposed upon them. There were sundry loop-holea in the law of which they might have taken advantage, but the prevailing purpose was to conform to the spirit of the act- As Chicago is the great re ceiving and distributing point of the West, their aim was, if possible, to afford shippers far and near the easiest and most available means of transit to and from this city. With the Chicago and Northwestern Railway this was not a very diffi cult problem to solve, because from every point reached by it, within this State, it is the shortest route to Chicago. A distance tariff could, there fore, be profitably made. But with the North and South roads the case is quite different. 32 very dozen miles or so they are crossed by through Eastern lines. Take the case of the Chicago & Alton Railroad. At Bloomington it is intersected by the Indianapolis, Bloomington A- Western and the Lafayette, Bloomington & Mississippi Railroads, either of which Companies make the same rate through from New York to Bloom ington that lb made by the Alton Railroad via Chicago. The latter being the longest, the short lines will be enabled, under the operation of the new pro rata law, to make a lower rate and thus take all the business ; but they can maintain the rate just as high as will bring it a trifie under the rate established by the long road. This will be discrimination with a ven §eance, nnflp.r the operation of a law especially esigned to prevent it! It will force the long est road entirely out of the competition and place it utterly at the mercy of Ihe short route. For, rather than •lower the general tariff of the road sufficiently to meet this competition and bring ing it, at intermediate stations, to merely nomi nal figures, the companies will prefer to aban don the business at competing points and make up the deficiency its loss will entail by advancing the local rates. The General Freight Agent of the Alton Road proposes to charge, for business received i at competing points and consigned to bis local I stations the same rate that would be charged from Chicago. This policy would violate the spirit of the now law, but be proposes to evade the penalties of its infringement by of fering to take car loads at 20 and SO f>cr cent less than regular rates for first, second, , bird, and fourth class freight, and will offer ibis advantage to any one who can ship by car load. The result will be that, if a snipper at { [Springfield is able to patronize the road by the 1 and a man at Lexington or any point BO or 100 miles nearer Chicago cannot ship alike quantity, the latter will be compelled to. pay a higher rate fora lesser distance than the heavier shipper for perhaps double the distance. And Iheir justifiable excuse will bo grounded on the wording of the law prescribing that for “ like quantities,” etc., a greater charge shall not be made for a lesser distance than for a greater. The north and south roads will suffer most, but not alone. The Bock Island Company, for Instance, wtiHi&ve xo aoanaon tne -dusiuobb ox Peoria. Last year that station yielded the Com pany $300,000. But the T., P. «fc W. B. B. runs ai an air line across the State, giving a shorter fev n n o to the East than by way of Chicago, end ■M& R-iU, therefore, make a rate lower than the Bock B if fdand Company can afford to touch. Their Wr freight agent recognizes this barren fact, and, V Bhe Mr. Smith, of the Alton, and Mr. Tucker, of the Illinois Central, is preparing to make good this deficiency by increasing the local rates suf ficiently to maintain the revenue. The companies say they cannot afford to earn less than they have done hitherto, and that being compelled to abandon such a large portion of tneir business IboT would be justified in making good their losses by increasing the rates for short hauls. This policy~has one serious difficulty. If the companies suddenly advance thoirrates for short distances, will not the shippers arraign them before tne courts, and be able to convince any •jury that, if the rates charged for the past ten or twelve years wore remunerative, theirmaterial Advance now is extortion ? )|Thesa views may yet be modified, as none of the tariffs—except that of the Northwestern Bailway—ore in print. That Company assume • aa arbitrary rate to cover the expense of receiv ing, handling, and delivering freight at the two Stations where received and delivered The whole tariff is then made by adding a fixed rate per 100 pounds per mile, varying according to classification. The result is somewhat to de crease the present rates and sensibly to equalize them, removing many causes of friction. Special rates are entirely abandoned, except in the cases died where shippers contract by the cor load. Manufacturers along the several linos who have been encouraged in their hazardous enterprises by advantageous rates will Ixave to grub along as best they can. The Rail-' road Commissioners have been approached on this point, aud they take the high, philosophical ground that, if the manufactories cannot stand on their own bottoms, they had better fall; and, In regard to the north and sonth linos, the; like wise assume that, if the linos were not properly located in the direct course of trade, the people Are not to blame for the lack of foresight. One other question has engaged the ' man agers: The effect the law will have npon con tracts made outside of Illinois. The C., B. & Q., Rock Island, Northwestern, and Illi nois Central Companies each have contracts with lowa lines crossing them north aud south by which the business •of these cross.roads is transported to Chicago at a less car rate than the local rate between Chicago and the Missis sippi. The contracts ore made outside the State, but the performance is within the State, and, therefore, os some lawyers affirm, subject to the law of the State. Others, equally versed in legal lore, contend that. the question is beyond the jurisdiction of the State, being of on internation al character. The point made by the latter gen tlemen is, that, were the roads to charge their regular distance rate, the business would .be lost to the Chicago roads, which loss would benefit nobody; where as, taking it at the best . procurable rate, does not injure or affect the people of Illi nois, while it does help the roads by swelling their cross earnings and enabling them to trans port their other business at lesser rates. This position was affirmed, by resolution, at the last general meeting of the Managers. It has been said that the roads can transport their business across lowa at a merely nominal figure if they choose, and put on the full rate from the river to Chicago. The Bock Island and the C., B. & Q. Cos. can do this, because they own their lowa lines; the Northwestern and Illinois Central cannot, because they loose their respective lines upon a certain percentage of the gross earnings, and the terms of tho agreement demand a fair division. It has also been stated that the north and south lines will secretly “pool ” the business at competing points With the east and west lines, and allow tho latter to do all the business. Should the cross lines consent to this, they will display unprecedented magnanimity, fox they have tne Chicago lines at their mercy. Tho struggle in regard to the Freeport busi ness may be revived; The Illinois Central Com pany have a contract with the C., B. & Q. Company, by which all the business of the former, north and west of Foreston, is transported to Chicago for $9 per loaded car, —a distance of 128 miles. When the new law comes in force, certain parties who are now paying the local rate of S2O and SBO per car propose to offer the G., B. & Q. Company the same car rate that is given the Illinois Central Company. In case the regular rate is exacted, thev mil appeal to the coarta.and.aak the jurors to decide whether, if it pays the Company to transport freight 128 miles for $9 per car, a charge of S2O per car for a leaser distance is not extortion. Presented thus, the jurors would not waste much timft in recording an affirmative verdict. But the 0., B. &Q. Company intend to deny that it is their road,- They will claim that the Illinois Central Company make the rate with thft shipper, and transact all the business; that the Chicaeo, Burlington & Quincy Company merely haul the trains, and that, iiracticaUy, these 128 miles are a portion of the Illinois Cen tral and should bo considered such. If this construction is not accepted, the Company ma/ fall back on the danse referring to “ like quanti ties.” and ask -what individual shipper will con tract to give them an equal quantity with the Illinois Central. Some of the roads will not make their tariffs uniform over all portions of their line. The law refers to lines running in the “ same direc tion.” Thus, the Illinois Central will make a different rate on their main line to what is given on the branch, because the former mns S. S. E. and the latter 8. 8. W.—an exceedingly nice dis tinction, and one that the Northwestern could also make between its Freeport subdivision and the Dixon Air Line. It will thus bo seen that several knotty ques tions, with which the railroad solicitors are wrestling, can only ho definitely settled after a fair trial of the law. WHERE THE ASSETS WENT. The President of the Bankrupt Com mercial insurance Company Ex plains—The Director* Goto Him Be insurances in Other Companies to Cancel His Claims Against the Com mercial. The city press, in order not to hamper tmdnly the hands of the Assignee of the Commercial Insurance Company in his efforts to discover what hsw become of the assets of the Com pany, that have so mysteriously disappeared, have refrained from reporting the evidence of the various officers, as it has been taken. Sufficient time, however, has elapsed to justify the publi cation of the evidence of William V. Kay, Presi dent at the time of the fire, which was taken on the 6th inst. The oarly part of the examination was taken up in eliciting particulars of the policies effected in the Company by the witness, who said he had one for $6,000 on his house on Michigan avenue; one for $5,000 on a house and bam at Lake Forest, and that Hayden & Kay had one for $20,000 in which ho was interested. From this point part of the examination is worth giving in full. The witness was asked if there wore any policies not mentioned. A—l think that's all. We did have something on some carriages stored on State street. I have forgotten the amount. Q. —Did you make proofs of loss against the Commercial Insurance Company on the policies ? A.—l made proof of loss for $5,000. I proved up part of the Hayden & Kay policy, and took a certificate for it. That was sufficient to cover my indebtedness to the Company. Q. —You proved up part of that policy? A.— Yes, sir. Q. —And took a certificate ? A.—And took a certificate, which certificate I surrendered to the Company for my note. Q. —Why did you not prove up the whole of the claim of Hayden <fe Kay against the Com mercial Insurance Company ? A. —Because I had received $15,000 of reinsurance policies from it. leaving $5,000. Q. —The reinsurance was made by the Com mercial Insurance Company, was it not ? A.— The reinsurance was made for the benefit of the Commercial Insurance Company—'for the bene fit of Hayden. Kay & Co. Q.—ln wbai companies ? A.—l do not remem ber. Q. —How many companies was the re-in* surance in ? A.—Three. Q. —Did you collect the reinsurance? A.— Yes, sir. I collected what we could of it. Some of them paid 20 cents, and 1 believe the others paid 25 cents after the fire. Part of them, I think, were Hartford companies. Q. —Do you recollect any of the companies ? A.—l do not. Q.—Would your books show? A. —Yea, sir. Witness next stud tho companies were poor ones, that he would furnish a statement of the soma received to the Register, that be got the reinsurance policies from Hr. Fay, the Secre tary, and that such policies were assigned to Hayden & Kay by Mr. Fay. He did not know by- whose authority the in terest of tho company in the reinsurances were assigned to Hayden & Kay, by Mr. Fay, but assumed that it was done by authority of the company,—but he. was not aware of any meet: ing of Directors at which any such authority Wu giTcm ; sitnougn ne thought mere was. Questioned as to his recollections on this point, ho said the policies were handed to him oy Hr. Chapman, in the presence of tho other Directors, at tbe office on West Washington street, and then assigned by Hr. Fay, and there fore he supposed it must have been with the knowledge and consent of the Directors. It was at a formal meeting. He could not remember whether any resolutions were passed. Tho date of said meeting 'was about a week after the fife, just after they opened their office on Washing ton street. It was held as soon os they got the safe out of the vault. He thought all tho com panies whose reinsurance policies he held went into bankruptcy. The companies wore wound up, and he took anything he could get for the reinsurances. THE CONTESTED SCHOOL-ELECTION The Application for a Writ of Quo Warranto Calling: on Waite to Show Cause Why file Should Not Vacate Of fice—The' Hulo Discharged—Judge Tree Holds That Where a Citizen Participates In an flection Ho Can not Afterwards Upset 1U In tho Hyde Fork election for School. Trustee case, where John B. Lewis prays for a writ of quo warranto calling upon George \7. 'Waite to show cause why he should not be enjoined from illegally exorcising the office of School Trustee, Judge Tree yesterday rendered the following opinion; This was a rule obtained at the relation of John B. ' Lewie, calling upon the defendant, George W, Waite, to show cause why an injunction should not bo mod . against him for illegally usurping and exercising the office of Trustee of Schools of Township 38, North Eange 14 East of 3P.IL It appears from the affida vits and exhibits filed, that James H, Ely, as Treasurer of the township in question, did, in pursuance of law, giro notice of au election to be held at the school* house iu District No. 6, on the 12th day of April, from Ba.m.to 4p. nu, for one Trustee of Schools. That at the hour appointed, aa it is alleged, the Judges of tho election met, and, being unable to obtain access to the school-house, posted a notice on the door that the election would be bold at ■ tho house of one James H. Ely, which is on the same street, not far distant from the place originally designated. That the elections for Trustees of ttchuols hare been held at Ely’s house for the last five years, and it is .well known to the voters of the township. That the relator attended the elec tion held at Ely’s house, tho legality of which is now in dispute, that he was a candidate there for School Trustee himself, and voted at that place. It further appears that, later in the day, a few of the voters of the township assem bled at the school-house, elected Judges, and proceed ed to hold an election for School Trustee. At thiw lat ter place therj were 19 votes cast, all of which were in • favor of the relator for the office. At Ely’s house there were 113 votes cast, 106 of which weire for the respondent Waite, and the remaining 6 for the relator. It is claimed by the relator that the Judges had no power to adjourn the election on that day to another place than that originally designated iu tho notice, and therefore that the election so held at Ely’s house was Illegal. ' In the view which ! take of the easel do not deem it necessary to consider the question as to whether or not the election at Ely’s bouse was regular. lam satisfied that I ought not to make the rule absolute under all of tho circumstances developed by the affidavits on file. Itseems.that Levrie.vroa a candidate at the election held at Ely's house, that he voted himself, and a num ber of votes were cast for him at that place. The rule, I think, la well settled that where one concurs in an election by voting and taking part in it, he dis qualifies himself from complaining of it, at least so for as enabling him to become a relator in a quo war ranto : proceeding.' Courts are never • disposed to listen to persons who have acquiesced and concurred in the very act which they afterwards come to com-- plain of when it suits their purpose. (Bex. v. Clarke, 1 East; 46.) In Bex. .r. Sly the, 68. & 0., 240, it wTs held that where a corporation has attended and voted at a meeting for the election of officers'of the borough, ho will not bo allowed to become a relator In quo . warranto and impeach the titles of the persons there elected on ao court of theobjection to tho title of the presiding officer, unless he shows that, at the tim* of tho elec tion, he was ignorant of the objection. In thip case it cannot bo contended that the relator was ignorant of the fact of the change of place, or any of the facts of which be complained. He was ah active participant at the election at the house of Ely. In the very late case of the Queen v.' Lofthouse and Wilson, reported ini Law Reports, Q. 8., years 1865, 1866,. the pro visions of the act of Parliament were not com plied with at an election of a local Board of Health, but the ' relator, having voted at and participated in the election, the Court held that he was disqualified from complaining of the legality of election in the character of relator. The Court say that it is very much like the case where an arbitrator has done something wrong, - but ' both parties, although knowing It, nevertheless proceed, and neither can afterwards take advantage of the objection. The rule must be discharged, with oovta against the relator. THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE: SUNDAY, JUNE 15, 1873. HESING’S HOWL. Its Effect Upon Field, Letter & Co.— How lies Log Failed to Keep His Word. Interview -with. One of the Jurymen —The Facts About the Trial. Messrs. Field & Leiter were called upon yes terday, by a reporter of this paper, to got a state ment of their connection, if any, with the jury in the liquor case, which created such a rumpus in the last meeting of tho Gorman Saloon-Keepers’ Union. The facts, as gathered from these gen tlemen, were to tho effect that a Constable went into the store, and told Mr. Leiter that he want ed some men to serve on a jury. Mr. Loiter called the first four bo laid his oyes on, and of the four, three—Messrs. Young, Webb, and Leonard —went with tho Constable. None of the firm bad any idea what the case was, nor did they care to inquire. They regarded it as none of their business, as they never attempted to influence their employes in voting on juries or at any other time. The next morning translations of the remarks of the Slaals-Zeitung were laid on the desks of the principals of tho firm, who called on Mr. Hosing. That gentleman professed to be astonished at the remarks in his paper, and expressed his in tention to retract. Mr. Hesing was quite cordial daring tho interview, and full reliance was placed in his promise to set matters right the next day. His paper came out the next morn ing, but the core was worse than the disease. Messrs. Field & Leiter did not care mnch for that; all they cared about was that it should he known they did not interfere with their em ployes when voting on juries or elsewhere. They had never done so, and never intended to. MB. SOUKO, one of the employes who served on the juiy, stated that Hr. Leiter simply called him and three others to where the Constable stood ; that one of them got off on account of on engage ment in the evening, and ho and the other two wont with the Constable to the Justice's office. Hr. Leiter never said anything to any of them, and none of them knew until the Constable in formedthem wbat kind of a case was to be tried. At the coart the attorney for the defendant made some remark about having three jurors from one store, but they wore all accepted, much to their chagrin, as they would have willingly given place to anybody else. THE CASE was tried and given to the jury. There were twelve jurors. As soon as they were in consul tation, one juror, who seemed to bo acquainted with the defendant, os ho had shaken hands with him, rose, and announced his opinion that 4 There was no case." The jury divided, and there were six for conviction and six for acquit tal. That was a tie, a dead lock, and so it re mained for the half hour the jury remained out. They reported to the Court, through the juror who was believed to be a friend of the defend ant, that “They could not agree if they remained out a week,” and the Court discharged them. The case, in Hr.Young's opinion, had to be tried upon the facta and upon THE FACTS AZiOKE, and in his opinion the facts demanded conviction. One policeman swore on tbo trial that he went into the saloon three times that Sunday after noon and saw liquor bought, sold, and drank. There was no prejudice that Hr. Young could disown on the part of anybody against the de fendant, and tbe six who voted for conviction did so because, in their judgments, the evidence irresistibly led them to that conclusion. It so happened that the three gentlemen from Field & Leitor’e were for conviction, and of the other three, one was from another dry goods house—the Boston Square-Dealing estab lishment ; the second from a tlnshop on Madi son street; and tho third, Hr. Young did not know where ho came from. When going out of the Court Zenieschek remarked that they had better get all their jurors from Field & Letter's. The statement of Hr. Zenieschek in his speech that the epithet 44 d—n Dutchman ” was used by the jurors, was not true. Hr. Young said that the throe men from Field & Leiter’s were not u temperance men” so-called; that they all drank occasionally when they felt like it. They voted on the jury as they thought the evidence di rected. THE DOTESSE ESTABLISHMENT of Field & Leiter was running all day yesterday, and will probably continue prosperous in spite of Hr. Zenie&cbek’a resolution. The firm is without prejudicej they are too busy, and have no time for prejudice, and, as a proof that they entertain no prejudice against the Germans, it may be stated that they employ a large number of that nationality in their establishments. TEE MAVOB AND MB. HESIKQ, The report of the proceedings of the recent meeting of tho “ liberal-minded citizens,” com monly called the Saloon-Keepers’ Union, pub lished in yesterday’s paper, contained an ab stract of some remarks made by Hr. A. C. Hos ing, in which ho was represented os saying that 44 The advice the Mayor gave him was that the saloon-keepers should not pay the fines, but re . sort to the higher courts,” and that 44 Tho Mayor showed by his recent actions that ho was an un truthful and dishonorable man.” The Mayor is at a loss to know wherein be h<m been untruthful, or what promises he has made which he has not observed. He would like to learn of any one which he has violated. So far as any alleged advice to saloon-keepers not to pay their fines is concerned, he simply denies that he ever said anything of the kind to Mr. Heaing or to anybody else, JBut he has often said to Mr. Hosing, to members of German Com mittees, and to others, that if the saloon-keep ers considered themselves aggrieved tho Courts were open to them, as to all other citizens, and they need have no fears that they would not get fair trials. They could hire any attorney they choose to defend them. They could call for a jury, if they had no confidence in the Justice of the Peace, and they could appeal to a higher court if the verdict dia not satisfy them. But, on the other hand, the city would be compelled to prosecute under the law with all the force it could, and win its suits if it could. It was a question for tho courts to determine, and they had the same rights there as all other defendants. These re marks were made not merely to Mr. Hesing, but to all who came in and aaKed that they should not bo prosecuted, and they are all he over said on this subject. According to the Staats-Zeiiung report of tbo same meeting, Hr. Hesing referred only to what the Mayor said concerning asking for juries, and did not say anything about refus ing to pay fines. THE NEWSBOYS’ HOME. Wo*. 44 and 46 JLaSalle Street Being Fitted Up for T'lteir Hec.i'iitinn— Billings JBlccted Superintendent. A meeting of the Board of Directors of the Newsboys’ Home was hold yesterday afternoon at the office of the Belief and Aid Society, N. 3. Bouton In tho Chair. Among these present were: N. S. Bouton, W. B. Billings,' Mr. Hubbard, Dr. Ban Miller, N. K. Fairbank, Mr. Plumb, and several ladies. Mr. Hubbard explained the mission upon which Mr, Billings was sent in behalf of tho Newsboys' Homo, and Mr. Billings gave a detailed stato ment, giving a history of tha undertaking from its inception to its successful issue. There was a building opposite tho Belief Society’s rooms, on LaSalle street (Nos. 44 and 46), which ho had commenced patting in order. Mr., Bonton • explained the' object of the Society, and its desire to extend its labors to embrace not only all tho boys, but the girls also, lutio 00r ° °^ th° following roao- fuwlred, That the Board of Directors hereby ap. prove the acLon of the Executive Committee in em piOTing Mr. IV.

Mr. Moore hoped that Mr. Billings would not run the institution into debt. Mr.; Hubbard was, on motion of Mr. Fair bank, . mads the Auditor of the Contingent Fund. ■ In discussing tha matter, Mr. Billings ex pressed a wish that there should bo very little red tape about the matter. He would prefer to have it bandy for uao. C Mre. Dr. Northrnp was, on motion, appointed to fill a vacancy in the Board of Directors, caused by the resignation of Miss Jessie Braes. Hr.

SchnclioW' 'Who Was Sent to Prison for Selling: liquor After the mayor Revoked mis License, Applies for Habeas Corpus—Gist of the Argument on Roth Sides. Yesterday morning, in the Criminal Coart, be fore Judge Bogota, the case of Francis Schu chow came up, involving the long-vexed ques tion of the virtue of the Sunday liquor law. Bohuchow sold liquor after the Mayor revoked his license, and he was sent to prison for five days. In the absence of Hr. John Tan Arnum, prisoner’s counsel, the argument for a writ of habeas corpus, to release him from durance vile, was conducted by Nissan and B&mum, his asso ciates in the case. Mr. Bamum, having asked for a continuance of the case, which was refused, proceeded with his argument, which was as follows : Tho following were the points argued for relator by Mr. Baznam, of Nlssen & B&rnam: That a license is property, a valuable thing, a right not to be lawlessly taken away; that a revocation of license is tanta mount to, and, in fact, a /or/eiture ; that a municipal corporation cannot enforce its ordinances by means of forfeiture unless expressly authorized to to do by its charter, and then only In the instances specified In the charter; that the Charter of Chicago confers upon the municipal authorities the right and power to revoke li censes for sale of liquors, etc., for a few exceptional and enumerated causes, not exceeding five In all, among which aro conviction of the saloon keeper of gaming, immorality, and keep ing a disorderly house, but among which the sale of liquors on Sunday is not included; that where a dty charter, as that of Chicago, prescribes the means by which the ordinances shall bo enforced only those means can bo resorted to by tho dty: and where such prescribed means consist of fines and im prisonment, no forfeiture can be snperadded by dty ordinance. All other means than those mentioned in the charter are cl early.ex eluded. The corporation cannot take such dangerous powers, so derogatory to common rights of citizens, by Implication or pre sumption : that unauthorized ordinance* in conflict with the charter are void, and that thotgh a dealer in liquors takes a license upon the face of which it is stated that he shall suffer 1 revocation of his license in case ho violates any ordinance of the dty, past or future, he nevertheless is not bound fay such recitals if the ordinance for violation of which his license is taken away is unauthorized and void. And although tho licensee may have given a bond containing covenants to keep all ordinances, past and future, on penalty of losing his license, auen bond is not binding, as the dty outhoritieu had no power to require it, and in doing so required more than the law required. The unauthorized contracts of the corpora tion with the licensee he argued, though made un der ordinance, are voi(£ and tho prisoner, for a viola tion of the terms of his license, could not be robbed of it. His former license therefore was unaffected by th« attempted revocation, and be ought to be discharged. Gen, Btilos,on behalf of the the pointa urged by counsel for the relator ai some length, citing numerous authorities in support of his arguments. He hold that the infraction of the Sunday Liquor law brought the saloon-keeper within the revocatory power of the Mayor, inas much as the act of selling liquor on that day was immoral, and immorality pomes within the causes for which a revocation of license can be effected. He eschewed thirfpoint that a license was property, and cited-authorities on behalf of this opinion. He wonUL-fiot take the ground that the license was a contract. A number of au thorities were cited by the General.to prove that the Mayor had vested in him full power to take away licenses., The Court took the matter under advisement. PERSONAL. S.

In addition to the patterns themselves, it contains certain necessary di rections for hanging rail, for making out orders, etc. Bui the book, owing to the exceedingly tastefui way In which it is gotten up, neatly bound, and on good paper, being among other tilings, a very speci men of presswork, and to the many handsome designs It contains, is also of general interest to all who are fond of seeing pretty things. This firm did all the inside carpentering work at the Pacific Hotel, and they add much to the attractiveness of their. pub lication by adding to it a couple of well-executed engravings, representing the grand stairway at* that hotel, and also the ladles’ flight. These pictures convey much better than any description a full idea of the admirable work which «*-*n be done by this Company. There is also a full-page engraving of its manufactory. The publication of these pattern or sample boods is not uncommon, but it is gratifying to find that a Chicago firm has not only the enterprise to got one up, but the good taste to issue it in such a shape sa to make it creditable to draughtsmen and td printers. Persons who are interested in this specialty, and desire to obtain copies, should apply at the office of the Company, at the corner of Clark and Twelfth streets.
