COUNTING THE VOTE. The Common Council Decide to Canvass the Vote at tho Kecont Election. No Action Will Bo Taken on tho May oralty Qae.tion Until the Can tui Shall Be Completed, A Large Andlonoe Who Dispersed Some what DUappolntod, For it Was Eipootod that an Effort Would So Madr, to Indefinitely Postpone. Tho Canvassing to Bo Resumed This Evening. The regular meeting of the Council waa held last night, President Dixon In theohslr. Tho absentees were Btono (Fifth Ward), MoOlory, Gunderson, and Murphy. There was quite a Urge attendance of the general public, who were attracted by tbs rumor tbat there waa tp bo some fun,ln reference to the canvass of the votes of the |ste election, ■ After the Connell oama to order, Aid. Bohaffnsr moved tbat the Connell do now proceed to canvass the returns of tbo election. Aid. Sommer asked If the motion was in order. Aid, Campbell hoped tbo canvass would bo postponed until 0 o'clock. Tboro was soma busi ness to transact. Aid. Hcbaffoer said (boy would attend to the business afterwards.. Aid. Hiobardaon objected to the motion. The business should be gone through lu the regular order. If there wore any communications In the bands of tho dork, tkoy should bo consid ered first. ~ Aid. Bob.ffaer —I innt.t opoo my motion. If the Council choose to vole U down, lot them do So: I have nonobjection. Tboro Is nothing be fore the Oouuftl which will suffer by the delay of one, two, or throe hours, or one, two, or three weeks. I know of nothing so Important hand ing that U cannot bo deferred until this matter is settled. Aid. Richardson—'Will not that question keep (or a couple of hours? ... Aid, ficuaffnor—You can Judge for yourself. Aid. Campbell said ho was just as anxious to no the vole counted as anyone, but be did not tee there was anything personal or political to bs mado mat the ordinary business should be delayed in order to proceed st once ' WITH THE CANVASS. After getting through the regular business ho would os willing to stay until i o’clock, Itnoccß lary. to make the canvass. _ Aid. Bohaffner—l don't want to sit so long. I •rant to get through and go home. Aid. Hildreth thought some day should bo fixed for the count, in order to sUp* the Aider men.elect to bo proiout. and give them on op portunity to oloav up unfinished business in tho meantime. He movod that tbo vote be canvassed tno week from to-night. - Aid. Bohaffner questioned the propriety of tho motion. This was an important mooting, and both Aldermen and pooplo expected the returns to bo canvassed. There waa nothing to bo gain id hr putting it off. Ho did not know what was to bo made bv finishing up the business; there ■as not a single measure pending that he would •are of voting on. It was thstr Imperative duty to canvass the vote to-night, aud settle this question of (bo election. Ho hoped they would quietly submit to tho will of tho pooplo, declare the result of tho election, and uext Monday give np tbeir eeats to tbe new men. Aid. Bicb&rdnou said that was nil very well If e person desired to gain popular applause and tredit and make a little buncombe out of it. Tbe Mpditlon of tbo ojtv, as far as tbo Council was eooeorned, was different now to what it was In years past. It was the custom heretofore to B.vCt tbe Aldermen in tbo autumn, who under tbo'old charter took tbeir seats tbe first Monday in December. That arrangement generally al lowed throe or four regular meetings to inter vene between tbe time of tbo election and tbo time the now Aldermen took tbeir seats. This Eavs an opportunity to oloar up the business on and, and it seemed to him if they were to fix upon the second Monday in May for tbo bbw men to take tbeir Boats they would bo dolug nothing out of the way or nutieua). Tbo balderdash about tbeir leaking to bold over until next December was ta idle bb the wind and everybody know it. Mot t~u in five of the present Council hid desired re-election, aud not one in forty now wonted to keep bis seat longer than was absolutely neoes ■ary or proper. Committee* had spent along time la luveetigatiug certain mailers, and the city bad boon put to tbo expense of publishing their reports, end it would certainly be MOB* DEWBAHLE to push those matters through than to bate (born recommitted tod republished. At tbo same lime be did think ihoro wan anything of ?ory vital Iropurtauco before them, but tbov irould have tirao to ran over the business and to through the canvaes tbit night. Aid. Campbell referred to tbe provisions of Ibo old charter, and said it was always deniable that some little time should lutervono noforo iho new Aldorraeu took iboir seats. He bad drawn up au ordination living the second Monday in May aa tbe tbe lime wbcu tbov should vacate tbeir seats, wbiou ho would offer as a aubstl tUAl*d. Bohaffner asked l( it waa tbe intontlon to lofer tbe canvass. Aid. Campbell said be did not propose to dq ler tbe canvass. Tbe substitute only fixed tbe dme when tbe new officers should nqallfy. If qo such ordinance were passed, tbe officers sight qualify at oifferent times, and so cause undesirable confusion in the public offices. TboChaliman said according to all tbe in* formation ho could obtain ou tbs charter, tbe Council wan required to canvass tbe returns and aoolarn Ibo result, sad they then bod no power to transact Inrtber busmens. Therefore, If ffiere was any unituisUed business, It would bo is well to dispose of it at once. Aid. Campbell said bo bad bad tbe opinion of M,ood lawver, who fiitortamod the view that womens could be afterwards transacted. Aid. lUobardbon inquired if (hero was an trdiuauce from the Law Department in regard to this matter in the hands of tbe Clerk. Mr. Forrcat—No, sir. Aid. lUchurdsou—X understood there would be one. job. ociuttmEU tskod if the Law Bepartmout, or any momber »f it. bad staled that after the canvass aud the declaration of tbe rosnlt, the Council bad any tutburity tp transact further business. The Chairman—That u certainly as 1 nodor rtaud it. Aid. bcbaffner*-Tben 1 insist upon my mo tion that we proceed at once with tbe canvass. Aid. Waterman asked if the Chair held that the substitute of Aid. Campbell waa in order, The Chairman was of opinion that it waa. Aid. Waterman—lf this Council have any fight or power to ear that the newiy-cleotad Mitosis shall take their scats on the eeo »pd Monday in May, U necessary follows that ve might fix the second Monday to November for uor retirement. We have, 1 think, no power )ver this matter, One of two things exists at ibe present time, Either this Council holds tvsr until next December aud the now Council lo not take tbeir seats until then, or wo have do authority now to do anything but canvass the roto. 1 behove tho latter. Under Ibo existing t • rendition of affairs, tbo Council has no power lo do anything else, and any action wo may take Dutaide of that will be utterly illegal ana void, there are a number of UXASpUKS fftNUINCk in which X fool some interest, sod in favor of shtoh 1 woild voto if 1 thought It proper for the Council to aot thereon. I may mention Ibat profiting (or a horse rsilwsy ou Dgden avenue, but J think we bare no power iu Ibe premleei.

The Chairman—There la a notion) an amend* tnouti and a substitute before the Connell. The anandment la by Aid. Hildreth, to vacate on the leooud Monday In May, There Uno amend* meat to Uie amendment. Aid. White would second Aid. Hildreth's amendment, limt, and hoped It would prevail. The oew Aldermen would bo able If It were car ried to take their Beats the third Monday in Mar. Ho oould not comprehend the hue and cry to foroe the men Into oilloe before (he proper time. It was a grots outrage to trv and (oroo the old members prematurely out of their Beats. ALD. niOUAHPSOtf said he had favored the postponement of the canvass because he supposed the Law Depart ment had prepared an ordinance covering the whole ground. As there was no such ordinance, ho would withdraw iho objections ho bad made, and hoped tbo vote would bo counted at once. Aid. Woodman thought they should canvass at once. Under tho now charter no man could sit Id the Council who owed tho city any taxes. Boveral of the Aldormeu-elect did owe taxes, which would have to be paid before they could take their seats. They should bo notified of tbelr election and given a week or two to set* 11 Akl.' Watorman—Tho City Trowury la vory much In need of money. Aid. Woodman—Yea, we want to pay our •ohoolmarms. . ...... Aid. Cullorlon believed It wee their duly to proceed at ouco. Tno fifty-second section, Art. 4, of tho now charter provided Diet 41 At tho first election under this not there shall bo elected tbo full number or Aldermen to which the city shall bo entitled. At the (tret meeting of the Goun od after such election, tbo Aldermsn elected shall be divided by tot Into tno clause*." Aid. Bcbaffuor asked if tho Alderman under stood that the Council would have to docido which of the now Aldermen should serve QMB OU TWO YEARN. Aid. Cullotton said no; there was a little more lu tho section he bad not read. The Chairman thought tho fifty-seventh see tlon Instructed them aa to tho|r action in tbo said that section provided, “ After the closing of tbo polls tho ballots shall bo counted aud the roturuu madd* out and re turned. under seal, to the Oitv or Village Olorlr. os tbo case may bo, within two days after the election i aud, thereupon, tho Oitv Council or Hoard of Trustees, as the case may bo. shall ex amine and canvass tbo same and declare (ho re sult of tbo election, and cause a statement thereof to bo entered upon Its Journals." Ho thought that cut no figure as compared with 800. 53, Aid. Sommer said he did not care whether tbo canvass was done that night or four weeks hence, so long os they did a little business. Qo moved tho*pieviouß question. Aid. Bweenoy—Withdraw that. Aid. Sommer—What for; do you want to say something? . . . Aid. Sweeney—No; hut this matter should bo fully discussed. Aid. Bommor—Tory well; I will withdraw the motion and give tho Alderman an opportunity to speak. Aid. Hildreth said he did not attend that meet ing, as some might suppose, because it was said l he bad some CUII 51 TO THE MAYOn.VI.TT. In justice to himself, ho wished to state that bo was no party to that project, end would not lend himself to any suob scheme. His reason for holding over for two weeks was to the best in* tercets of tbe city, as there woro matters In tbo bands ot tbo Clerk wbiob It was desirable should bo arranged. . . Aid. Cooy was in favor of canvassing immedi ately, so as to allow if possible the now men to take (boir seats on Monday night. Any busi ness which might be undisposed of would not suffer at the bands of tbo now Board. THE PEOPLE WEB* ANXIODB that the Aldormon-etoot should get to work and do seme good for tbo city. au). Campbell raid It was perfectly competent for them to count tbo votes, aud then adjourn to Wednes day, or sumo other night to transact wbat busi ness might remam. Witbtog&rd to Aid. Culler ton's point, it should bo remembered that tbo election was not complete until tbo canvass was made.—it was port of tbe election. Ho did not desire to postpone tbo matter other than m tbo interests of tbo city. Ho bad bis sandals on. bis staff was to bis band, and be was ready to travel out ot this place In which be bad attained euob glory. Aid. Schiffuor—You are weary pilgrim. Aid. Campbell— Yob }I am ready to wander away, probably on to somo political desert. Qod only knows wnoro l SHALL TUIIN UP. 1 don't expect to meet my friend from tbo Seventeenth In tuls Council ogam, but I do think there is decency in oil things. I have been willing to bo lushed by tbo press, aa our successors undoubtedly mil bo; but there is a decency which the newspapers ought to rooog* uiza, and not, tbe moment an election expires, commence a TIOAOB as if the Council worn going to held over. No thought of the bind over entered the cranium of auv one except an editor. 1 trust tbe prose will not coutmuo us In office by continuous misrepre sentation. , , The Chairman—l Hod that your substitute is simply au ordinance. Aid. Campbell—l shall strike the bead off, and put resolved In us place. Aid. Culiortou—Would it not come in as an amendment? The Chairman—lt cannot bo entertained as au amendment to the motion that we now proceed to canvass. ALP, WOODMAN said be was informed by a heavy tax-payor that as soon as the now Council woio installed SIOO,bOO taxes would no paid per day. Tbe city was lb want of monoy. and ll would bo true patriotism to give the Aldermen elect their scats ul once. Aid. Oullerton suggested to Aid. Bobaffnor the piopnetv of wiihdrawiug tbe motion to imme diately canvass, aud make ibo time half-past 9. This would give au opportunity to clear uu the business on hand. Tney were bound to proceed with the canvaes that night. Aid, Campbell—Wo mav be bound to proceed, but suppose we cannot gstturongu? Aid. Bouuffuor—Were these ordinary times and this an ordinary election, 1 would say lot tbe matter take tbe usual ouurse, Aid. Oullerton—l withdraw tbe euggoatioo if tbe Alderman is going to make a epomffi. Aid). fIOUAWNUn bad a few words to say. He believed not alone the press, but the groat malorlty.of the people, desired tbe presout Council to step down and out, aud that the new men should take posses sion of their seats as early as possible, lie had not the slightest objection tocomulymg with the wishes of tbs people in this respect. Aid. Campbell said the quickest way, if the Council wished to comply with ibo alleged wishes of the people, would have boon for each man to have sent in bis resignation after the election, and ou allowed tbe now men to taka bold at once. Aid.* Oullerton—Resignation after defeat t [Laughter.] Aid. Campbell—Vos. Aid. Bobaffnor said be did net come under that bead. He was thoroughly in earnest in what be said. His object and desire was that the Coun cil do not act on a solitary matter in the bands of tbe Clerk. There was nothing ponding but what would bo just aa well treated by tbe new Council as tbe preaeut. bomo defereuoe ought to bo shown to the WILL or TUB PEOPLE as expressed at tho election. Ha could not un derstand wbv the Council should desire to hold ou for two or three weeks longer. They should step down and out \ go to their homes or their business, and leave tho city affair. iu the bands of tbeir successors. . . Aid, Fitzgerald moved tbe previous question. Aid Waterman rose to a point of order. The amendment to postpone the canvass for two weeks was contrary to the statute, which im peratively elated the returns should be canvassed ak said tbe amendment waa out of ° r A*d. Bohaffner’a motion was then put and car rlAld,ngutrk moved that a oommlttoe of five bo appointed to assist tha Clerk in canvassing the TO AW. Woodman wanted to know if ll waa pro posed to count the ballots. Aid. Quirk said not, ~ .. .. Aid. Campbell wanted some sidewalk ordi nance takso up. The Chair inquired if Aid. Quirk's motion waa seconded. ... , Half-a-dozen Aldwmen—lt is not. Add. Oallerton moved that a committee of three be appointed to assist tbo Clerk In can vassing tho vote. The resolution was adopted, and the Chair appointed Aid. Bpaldmg, Cullar tou, and Schaffueraa such Committee. Aid. Bcbaffuar—l would rather be excused. Tbe Chair—Then Aid- Lynch will please serve. Aid. Lyneh~l object. tub ouAin pounoep hie desk with his Utile gavel. Aid. UohaSasx withdrew his objection and si- THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE: TUESDAY, APRIL 25, 1876. pressed a willingness to serve—to promote har mony, as he explained. The great unwashed in the lobby made some more noise, and toe Chair once more made the welkin ring with his littls gavel. TRS CANVASSIMO BOARD (ben took seats In frent of the administration post-laureate, who damped tho oontsnta of sev eral ballot-boxes on the table. Their contents were composed of huge envelopes inclosing tho poll-books and tally-sheets need at tbo different voting-places at die recent election. Aid. Oullerton appointed bimtelf a committee of one to do the calling off, and Deputy Clerk Moody did the cheeking off. , At this stage Aid. Cullerton asked what should be done about lbs vote for Mavor. iho Chairman thought It should be counted by the Committee anusprsad npon the record. Aid. Fitzgerald could see no Justice In this, tnasmnoh as the election of a Mayor was not called for. Aid. Campbell thought they ought to have the opinion of the Law Department on the question. Aid. Oullerton suggented that the Committee entertain the vole for tho time being, aud the point oould bo discussed when the result was de clared. Aid. Campbell thought if it was discovered that some officer not in the osll bad been voted for, It was eminently proper they should docido what waa to ho done in regard thereto before proceeding farther. The Chairman—That can bo decided after the oanvaas le completed. Aid. Campbell—l shall move that the canvass bs made as to Iho offioera voted for under tho osll. The Chairman—That motion is not in order. The motion prevailed that tho canvass should bo proceeded with. Tho Committee then settled down to work, notwithstanding repeated efforts to have tho point settled tbon and there. When tho Third Precinct of the Fourth Ward bad been called off, Aid. Bohaffnor throw up tho sponge and retired to the Pacific for refresh ments and a fresh light. During the progress of the canvass tho hoi polloi who had crowded the lobby m expectation of witnessing a Homan holiday gradually with : drew, and long before half the wards had been called over by tbo elocutionary Cullerton tho Council Chamber was half deserted. At the conclusion of tbo Cannes of tbs Sixth Ward, Aid. Woodman moved to adjourn until thia evening. The motion prevailed, and the Council stood adjourned. TUB COURTS* Assessment Casei-i'ox A llowntd— llunhruptoy Uusliicss— llccord off Judgments and Now ffuttv-OrlmU nal fflutlers* TOX A UOWADD. Just before Judge Drummond left for Mil* waukee, about throe nooks ago. bo delivered a decision in tbo matter of the petition for review of Hodgkins and Orauo, from an order of Judge Blodgett, in nhiob bo reversed the order of tbe District Judge, affirming a sale of certain prop* orty of Fox A Howard to Oouro & Catkins, for a future determination. Yesterday an ex* tended argument was made by tbo attorneys on both sides, and tbo Judgo mado an order that tbo sale to Oouro & Oarklns should bo sot aside, and that Hodgkins and Orano should bo allowed to bavo It on paving slo,6oo,—the amount bid by Oouro ft Gorkin*, —oud also on paving for any improvements mado in the property since tbe sale.

If both parties to any owes agree In writing to try tbo same la July, a calendar ot eooh oaeea wilt be made up, the call thereof to begin July 6. Cases on such calendar will take precedence in the order in which they Blend on the general dockets. Judgo Wllbama, of tbe Circuit Court, alao thinks that in order to keep up with his busi ness, he will be obliged to bear any oases where tbe parties agree to Lave them set. There will be no compulsory call, as was agreed by tbo judges last week, bat there will in ell likelihood be plenty of oases submitted to keep three or four Judges bnay the greater part of vacation.
