2 ttenudl—tost l« tIL lam not an attorney, lot consulted idy legs* advisers, but 1 read the char *p. it ta very plain, ami I bate the tight to pat my wnslrucUon on It In Just a few word*. This charter *m adopted April 10, 1H72, by the Legislature of the State of llllnoli. At the time of lie adoption It wjb the opinion of the Leglshturo thatthia form of Ror emment should be adopted In every dty and village throughout the Btato, It vraa Iho opin ion of a majority of the Legislature that I hla act should bo vote* for. this act shonld rot era each aM rltylnthli State, or olherwlae It could nd kewassed. It waa passed AprIUO, and Bee. 48 saw, -A cenerM elec tion for city officer* shall beheld *a the third luraday of April In each year,” making II obligatory on every city that adopted this charier to haro AH ALKCTIOM ANNPALLT. Unlike Intention of the Legislature was that the Mayor* shonld have two-year terms. The very mil lection after that reads, “That at the general (lection held In M72,’’ which was Just as loon as It conld bo Included. that a Mayor shall ho elected for the purpose of making the term of the office two years and of the other office one year. The trouble has been with a groat number of the attorneys, In my opinion, that they we quoting from this charier after Its adoption. See, 7J "tatca that them shall be elected ta all cities organised under this act the following officers: Mayor, Uty Council, City Clerk, City Attorney, and City Treasurer, how, why Is It that those legal gentlemen draw their points so fine as to the question of the Mayoralty and as to tho vacancy, and all that sort of thing, when tho Mayor has been elected under this act. All their opinions, In my mind, refer to a man who Is acting under this charter, Bee. 29 states that the Council shall consist of tho May or and Aldermen. The late election was a general election. It was an election for tho choice of a Mayor, and certainly, In my opinion, Iho people have a right to It, notwithstanding Iho failure of this Council to* Include it iu tho call. 1 don’t believe the City Govern ment Is going lo bo complicated a particle, and'l defy the gentleman to state ouo branch of this Government that wtU bo complicated by the canvass of tho votes cast for Mayor, and tho declaration of tho same, and qualification of Mr. lloyno. If tho gentleman will just point out any ouo branch of this Government that is going to make any conflict of authority, 1 will try to explain It away. . . .... Aid, Uildreth—l will say every department of the City of Chicago. . .... ... Aid. Cullerton—l deny the fact. I don’t believe that Uioro Is a branch of this Government that will come In conflict with tho election of Mayor Uoyuc. The lint branch of the City Government that ought lo bo approached by the nowly-cleclcd Mayor should bo that of the Comptroller. 1 havo looked at Ibo mat ter very calmly, or I would not have taken this posi tion. We aro only partially organized under this act, Two branches are organized. Tho office of City Comp troller Is not known In this act. In this act la found Iho duty of lha City Clerk; and If tho legal gentlemen and tho advocates of onr presiding officer would uko tho trouble to examine this charter, they would And that they wore laboring In tho dark. If Mr. llaycs, and lie Is tho only branch of this Government whom Mayor lloyno or Mayor Colvin should question tu the premises, falls to recog nize a newly-cloctai Mayor, how quickly the City Government will l»o recognized under this charter, Tho duties of the City Clerk arc announced in Bee*. 72, 73, 76, 04, 07, OK, 101,1U4, and 103 of this charter. Bee. 103 provides that tho City Council may confer up on the City Clerk the bowers op the courrnoLLEn, and the adoption of the resolution making the amount of tho Clerk's bond la only temporarily adoptid, In case any conflict of authority should occur, we have »recourse. I never would havo taken tho position lliat I havo taken 1/ we did not havo a power behind us to act. It Is the duty of Mr. lloyne, if ho Is duly elected, and qualifies, to stop iuto the Comptroller's office and ask htm, ** Mr. liayos, do you ,propose to rccoguizo mo as Mayor!’* If he says •• No J” It Is In tho power of the Council, under the charter, to settle that question. That is the only branch of tho Government that should bo brought In conflict in any manner whatever on this question. I don't bcllovo that His Honor tho Mayor, who is silting In that chair, would go to the Police Marshal or Iho Utro Marshal and ask either of them to recognize him is Mayor. I believe, under the circumstances, that those two branches ought lobe left alone; politics should not figure in them, aud 1 hope it won't lo this struggle. There Is no fear that the city’s credit will be ruined by tho acts of the Connell hero to-night. Not a bit of 111 Let us see whether any blame is attached anywhere os to the reasons why the tho laboring man bos not been paid for live months, nor tho police force for three months. Let us see If this AdmlDtatfoUon Is not tho causo of tho riot that occurred ou Twenty-second street to-day. The rea sons that the Laboring men aud tho Follco Department of this dty are in arrears to-day aro: that the refusal of tho bankers of this city ard of others to comply with tho requests of Mr. llaycs upon them has caused part of this difficulty. The money of the tax-payers, paid Into the Treasury of this city, was used in carry ing out tho credit of tho city,—ln paying up the cer tificates that were coming duo. Whoso money was that, may I ask 7 Was It not tho money of these poor laboring men and tbcio policemen that was held lack to pay these certificates 7 I think, I know that It was. 1 believe that the holder* of certificates In this or any other city know full well that they will bo paid, and after the old Coundl had passed the Appropriation bill, after tho asscasracnt-ioU was pasacd by the Coun cil and levied against tho i«ople, what did wo find In another branch of thla Government? wo found the dismissal of a largo number of laborers here, and wo found a reduction of salaries,headed right hero in thla department. Just as soon as the press an nounced tunt the laborers* wages are lowered to $1.23, the lumber-dealers reduced their meu from $1.50 to $1.26; aud those In the employ of the United Stales ou the Government building aro in the same position. •! desire to say that there Is HO FEAR OF BLOOD RUNNING through the streets if thla vote Is declared to-night and Mayer lloyno le declared elected. That la all lx.»h. Ido hope that the rcoolutlou will pass, and that the vote will be announced, and the Council will then ad journ if they so desire. . . . .. Aid. White said that they had been treated to a very Hue buncombe speech, but It wouldn’t go dowu with him. He produced tho records to show that AM. Cullerton had presented a resolution to the Council which designated the 23d of April as tho doy for tho adoption ol (be charter. It looked as If Aid. Cullerton bad also worked to bo carried over a year. The speaker referred to Mr. Jamieson's opinion to tho effect that Mayor Colvin could hold over HU April, 1877, provided the Lord saw fit to let him exist, and ho expressed It as his firm opinion that the Lord considered Mr. Col vin too good a gentleman to lake away. Aid. Hildreth—ln 1877 and every two years there after there will be a general election for Mayor and a vacancy occurring under tho law as provided for to other sections of tho charter. Aid. Gilbert—Do you think that there has ever been a Mayor elected under this charier? Aid. Hildreth—No. sir. Aid. While—Do you ihluk there will 7 Aid. Hildreth said “No,” end went on to reply to Aid. Cidiertou, complaining that the latter had cast tome stigmas ou the late Council, AM. Aldrich—l move that the previous question be now taken. Tho motion was agreed to—ayes, 27; nays, I). The queatlun then recurred upon Aid. Aldrich's mo tion, aud It was adopted,—yeas, 2'i; nays, 10,—those who voted lo the negative being Sommer, Lading, Hildreth, O'Urieu, White, Uyan, Nlcieu, Leugachcr, Murphy, aud Sweeney. AM. Hildreth—l uuw move (bo Council adjourn. Aid. Thompson—l hoi* that trill be withdrawn, aud mow (hat while (ho vole ts being canvassed the Alder men be classified. AM. Cullerton—l hope not; It will only take ten minutes to canvass the vote. The motion to adjouru and classify were withdrawn. The Clerk then proceeded to canvass the vote, and when it waa concluded announced the result as Uoyuo fiJ,UCI, aud scattering 619. DECLARING UR. HOTNX MAYOR. Aid. Aldrich—l have a motion to make. I move that Thomas Hoyno be declared elected Mayor of Chicago for the term cudlug ou the third Tucsilay of Ai>ril, 1877. aud that a statumcut thereof be entered upon tbe journals of the Council. Aid. Hildreth—l move that it bo reduced to writing. Aid. Aldrich—lt Is lu writing. Aid. Bummer (to Mr. Colvin)—Do you cuterUia that motion 7 Mr. Colvin—Gentlemen of the Council, we hive arrived at a point now in your proceeding! in which 1 feel that I am hound to protect uouiu rights that X i*o»- vccA as Mayor of Chicago. Tbo very fact that au elec tion fur Mayor was nut authorized by law, aud that a vote east for no party under such proceeding cun bo legally canvassed, compels me lo decline to put any motion to declare the result of that election fur Mayor, 3 maintaining that I am the Mayor of Chicago, and that no other can bo appointed or tdected, (Applause and hisses.] Aid. Aldrich—You rule the motion out of order? Mr. Colvin—l do sir. 1 rule it illegal. Aid, Aldrich—l shall moat respectfully appeal from tbe decision of the Chair. Aid. Cullerton—l second tbe motion on the appeal. Mr. Colvin—Now, gentlemen, 1 decline to put that notion. Aid. Cullerton—Mr. President, bow does tho Chair get over 800. Al. Art. U, of the Charier ? . Mr. Colvin—lf tha Alderman will allow me lo ex plain, I will tell him how 1 get over all tho provisions of the charter. It la that Xam advised by as good au thorities as there are In the City of Chicago, as early aa last October, aud down to the present time, that no election can bu held for Mayor until 1817. Further more, X found that certain parties objected to my be ing lu office, aud 1 made a propoaitlvu to go to the Fut-reme Court with a cose, which they accepted. They made an application for mandamus iijkiu (he Com mon Council to call au election lor Mayor, Judge Dickty, who had Just been elected u member of that Court, was ou the record. The Court stood throe and three, aud TUB MANDAMUS WAH KEVUHED. Borne people aay that Uuota result, but if Ur, Al drich’s linn hat peued to bo combed of four members aud 1 should mate on application fur 1100, end two of them decided 1 should not hive it, I would nut get thetlOU—would 1 get the fIOOT You say nut. of course; therefore 1 would bo defeated, and thu tjiuu la the coau now. The Kuprume Court refuted the at* filiation ef Messrs. George Armour imd diaries il, lendersou. This was dime upon my own Invitation, fur 1 said then, u 1 have always said to every peruou within the sound of my voice now, 1 am, and always Ja»>e said, if I don't hold the utlica by law, 1 duu I dr* •ire to hold It another hour. I say that emphatically to you gentlemen present here tonight. I said it lu my message which you refused to listen to this evening 1 I utado a proi>osltioQ to ui&Ks a rase end go to the Hnpreiue Court with it and decide It thu next term, which will tie in about thirty days. If that la accepted lam ready lu go there, lint i cannot, gentlemen, in justice to myself, believing that I aw the legal Mayor of Chicago, 1 cannot allow this proceeding to go lurtlur if 1 can prevent it by my rclutdug to act. Aid. Cnllertou—l will simply read Bee, 2j of the Charter, which U os follows : ♦* (Council, how composted.] The City Council ihall •ooslat of the Mayor aud Aldermen.'* Your Uouur bss been tilting during our resslou this ■veiling as presiding officer of this Council.

Hildreth—l aay resort to it right off. *ld, Cnllerlon—l am going to reaort to It, and It will bo douo legally. I have consulted some gentle* men who are good parllameutarlana, this afternoon, upon thla very point. We have found it to ha the oUeaa long as the Presiding Officer rcfußea to enter* tain a proper motion, that it ta the duty of the Conn, rll to elect ©reelect one of its members to preside temporarily, and 1 hope that In making thla motion therowlll ho no objections to Ua being done. Aid. Hildreth—l suggest (bat the Clerk make (bo motion, which will be proper. .. .. Aid. Cullerton—l object to the Clerk making the mo* lion. Ido not desire any Instructions in that way, AM, Hildreth—bet a member pul the question. Aid. Cullerton—Nut that either. That was one point that fans tmen taken under consideration. 1 hope that thepresldlng officer will not compel a majority of (bo Council to HRflOnx TO TUB BKLFCTtOS of one of Ita member* as tho presiding officer tem porarily. .. . .. Xlr. Colvin—Show mo any authority for I. Aid, Cullerton—Simply the motion of the* Connell. That will bo considered authoritative; If the chair refuses to entertain tho motion, I certainly must re sort to it. 1 did think that XL.*. Colvin—l don’t know about that, Aid. Culler* In bia placo and stats tb;d ho would put the motion, but I have found since 0 o'clock that (hat would not bo narllamGutary.

Aid Cullun'on—Then I will move, Mr. rrciidcnt—■- .Mr. Colvin—Move cautiously. .... vAld. Cullcrltn—Yes, sir; 1 am just going to work cautiously, ai»l, I hope, without any confusion.

Clerk, 1 dealro you not to put that motion, sir; you have no authority of low for putting that motion. You wilt not do It. If tho gentleman can give us any authority for tho position he haa occu pied, that is another thing. , „ „ Aid, Cullerton—l rimpiy state to the presiding offi. ccr, that If the acta of this Council, and particularly under this motion, cjp illegal, certainly tho case Is with you. If Iheyaro local they aro with a majority of thohouso; hot when the presiding officer refuses to entertain a proper motion certainly It Is tbo duty of tho Clerk. . , , # Mr. Colvin—Are you to bo the judge of a proper motion or not. . A ., _ Aid, Cullerton—A majority of this Connell rules this body, and (boro is no question about it. Wo aro now about to select a temporary Chairman for tho purpose of transacting our business, which la perfect ly proffer, and I can move that Aid, Aldrich act as temporary Chairman of this Council If 1 can get a second. ALD. HUEIUDAN—I SECOND THE MOTION. Aid. Thompson—l hoi>o that motion will not bo necessary. I can certainly appreciate tbo feelings of the presiding officur. I do nut wonder that ho dis likes to put tbo motion. At tho aamo time 1 have been assured to-day and to-night by somu of his fncuda that, to restrain himself within the hounds of law. Ho his called for tho authority for tbo proposition mads by Aid. Cullerton. 1 re speellully call for tho authority which allows him to disregard an appeal from his decision on a point of order. Tlio Chair must bo stluut upon that proposition. There is no authority for it. If, as has been said by lh«> friends of tho Xtayor to-night, Unit ho is Inclined to keep himself within the bounds of law and proprka'.y, if ho dislikes to put the tuoUou, ho could, if ho chot c, ask tho Clerk to put it, or he muy ask lomo member to step u;mii tho platform. If ho will allow the motjou to bo put lu any way congenial to hU feelings, tho majority of • the Council will bo glad. 1 cannot think that tho Mayor of this city, wbc bis been representing, as I said, that bo would keep within the bounds of law, wilt fall to do his duty as presiding officer, and conform to tho wishes of the Couudl and bo Its servant. Whatever may ho bis rights hereafter they aro not to 1m affected by any action we can take to-night; but for tbo purpose* of harmony, and to keep tho presiding officer and tho Mayor within the bounds of law uud propriety, so (hut It may go abroad that there has been nothing rash and Improper douo hero to-uight, 1 call upon the presiding officer to accede to the wishes of the majority of tho Cuuucil. Xlr. Colvin—Mill you give tho authority on which you bn(o your claim 7 Aid. Thompaon-.Tho authority is as follows: llulo 4 says that tho presiding officer shall decide alt ques tions of order, subject to an appeal to tho Common Council. If this question is upon a point of order ho must decide It subject to an appeal, That is AUTHORITY ENOUGH. Mr. Colvin—l Uku tots position, gentlemen, to pre serve my rights. If any member of this Connell wishes to nuke a motion they can do so. Aid. Thompson—SVlU the Chair vacate for that pur pose? XL*. Colvin—No,’sir. Aid. Cullerton—lt is not necessary. Aid. Thompson—l don’t think it is necessary. 1 would ssk tho Clerk to read the record of our proceed* lints up to this time. Tho Clerk read It. Aid. Thompson (to Aid. Cullerton)—Do you with draw your motion? Aid. Cullerton—l do not, but the Chair refuses to •DterUln|lt. Aid. Thompson— I am inclined to think 1 will (ok* tho responsibility of putting tho motion. A voice—That is right. Aid. Hildreth—Let tho Clerk make the record. It makes a record of the Common Council, and the Mayor lu no wsy Jeopardizes bis own rights. The record can bo made this way by any Alderman of the Council making the motion, or the Clerk may do ao himself—put tho motion to the body and make a record of it. Mr. Calvin—No gentleman in this Council can havo any question in his mind os to my being sanguine lu regard to my rights TO HOLD THIS OFFICE, and no gentleman in this Council, in my Judgment, ought to feel (hat I ought to bo induced to eaciillco those rights after all I havo submitted to during th* last twenty-eight months. [Applause and hisses.] Aid. Cullerton—lt is true that the Chair ought to have some feeling in putting such a motion. Mr. Colvin—l assure you I have no feeling about the matter nl all; 1 consider that I am protecting my per* eonal rights. Aid. Cullerton—Certainly the Chair knows full wed that he has no right to block legislation in this manner; he certainly will admit that. • • Mr, Colvlu—l do not bollovo that if blocks legisla tion. Aid. Cullerton—lt certainly does. Aid. White—A point of order. I dte tbe lama rule thet the Alderman takes fur hla authority. It says that an Alderman shill speak but once ou tbe sawo question if any Alderman object. AM. Cullerton—The presiding officer baa not enter tained the motion on Jhe appeal. Aid. White—That don't make no difference. Aid. Cttlloitou—What are you reading there 7 Head it again. Alii. White—l will, ns the Alderman requests it, knowing him lo be a very ignorant man aud unable to read it far himself. Aid, White read the rule. Aid. CuUurtou—in the question of appeal before tbo Council 7 Mr. Colvin—l do not wish to bo misunderstood in this mailer. Ido not refuse to put thla motion glmjily because it U out of order, but because IT IH IbJ.EUAL IN IIH UIIAUACmt. That U the ground upon which I decline, I can pro tect my rights if Ido put It. Now if tho law did not require that 1 should have come here to-ulght to preside over this highly respectable lunly, 1 would never have came here at oil. Hut tho law ab solutely required mo to come here, and that Is why X did. Now lam willing to do everything lu tho world that I can do lo servo you, except on a proposition illegally to deprive mo of those rights which the law guarantees to mo. Now, I cannot aeu tbo force of thla thing myself— of this proceeding, lu the Aral place, I have made you a proposition to make a case and go lothußuprcmo Court. There is no gentleman within sound of my vut.o that can say now In his own heart that he be lieves (hat I havu not got a claim. Nut a single nun esu say that I do nut btliovu it my self, I believe (hat every one feels lu bis own heart that I have got a claim to It—that I am backed up by tho highest tribunal lu the Htato of Illinois, of which I am a resident, and have been for IfJ years tbo igllh day of lost March. No man baa specified a charge agslaal mi-; no man baa said I ought to vacate this seat of tho Mayoralty U«amo 1 have done wrong. Not a man has said that. I have bad no opportunity duiiug this last canvass to place myself on tho record where I belong, for 1 was not invited even lu lay owu ward, by the two gentlemen who 1 ace befote mu (Aid, Thompson aud Aldrich) or by any of the jiarty to which I belong, lam u Itepubhcso, uud havu been since IMU.

(Laughter.) Every time, gentlemen, I will be right there. But that was not what was the mailer. Not onoof you gentlemen have over dark ened my door elnco }ou wero elected AMermcn of the City of Chicago, I am eorry to aay. and I know moat of yon personally, and yet not ono alngie person-of cer tain warila, the Firet, Second.

Wa waultodo the heel wo can for the city, and vre waul you lo help na.” Yon never camn to me even and aald that, I volunteered lo aay lothal young man who ait* right there (Aid. Thompson) In an interview with me that I hoped you gentlemen would come and Uiat you would asalat mo in getting a good governmeut. Tun Chicago Tiudunk drove away from me Aid. Heath and all Ui*«o gentlemen that composed the Common Council before. They kept them ‘ell standing right up (here and fighting mo (ho whole lime. Wliatwas it for? Can either of them any to-night before you 7 If they can. 1 will resign In five mlnurrs, If one of them can cay that he ever eaw mo Jo anything (bat was not in the Interests of Chicago. Where la the Mayor that ever exerted his in* finrncc to bring about a reduction In hla own salary hut me? 1 by my Inlluencfr—with the Common Council also— reduced every single employe of the city Ifipor cent where his salary was In exccsi of SI,OU). That took |C>oooutaf my pocket. The law had fixed my salary, and I would like to know who cau take It without smelt action on my part. What was it tor? It was to save tuo money lo you, neigh bors, That waa what It was far, Show me any extravagance 1 have done—anything extravagant. 1 have always been for saving, and not for spending the money, I removed a man, by my In llucnce, from the Water-Work* hero a few days ago which there has-been a terrible ado about. What was it? Ilia name Is Cregter, That’s hla name. 1 did It because I saw that ho was disposed •to put in my way^—exorcised his authority to pro vent mo from bringing about the reform In the saving of fuel, which was a saving of f. 0,000 a year. [Applause.] Tub Chicago TntnuMt came In in two articles several days twforc and says. “Wbyl dolt without delay.'* And (ho very moment that ( found that this man was In my way, and put him out, Thk Chicago Tiumrsr. came down on mo like a thou sand of brick. I am credibly informed that a larga petition is being circulated, when ho was pm out of olllco lo the Mayor to replace and reinstate this man in office. Now everybody says, “Oct rid of these high-salaried pheem" They said, “Ho keeps a 1 horse and wagon,” They don't keep any for me. I I don’t hare any horse and wagon, except at tny own expense, but tic has had one to ride all over the city— the only man who has bad one. The Board of Public Works litre bad none, but Crcgior had. Now, gentlemen, I ask to bo excused from stl this talk ou this subject, but I do feel as though 1 would liko to have you understand my position; I can say to you that, if you will let mo bo Mayor, and I think you will if you cannot help It [laughter], I will do the very best fur the city that 1 can. And 1 will say further tint 1 don't caru any more about the value of Ibis olllco to mo than I do about (bat pen, aud 1 would uot giro much for that. 1 (ell you. I have had abuse for brcalifo-t, dinner, and supper about as long as 1 want It. but I cannot afford to let sumo person come Into this place that I occupy hero, and then you gentlemen turn around and say Colvin waa a failure. Why? He came he did nut havo tbo support of such peoplo os you arc. That was (ho rea son. A merchant camo into tny oifico tbn other day, and said it struck him that perhaps 1 did not discharge my duty. Bain I, Why? “Well,” saht he, “ 1 think that a great deal of fault has been found with you, and it la because wo people don’t do our duty: we don't give you our support.”' “Now,” said I, " my friend, you havo struck tho very key note exactly.” Now, I have always tried to state the facts to you, hut they never havo done one thing to help me doit; not one thing. Then they aay that tbo Government is not ono of economy. John Wentworth said at that meeting at the Exposition that if 1 had an economical Administration (hero would bo no trouble ntmit getting nil tho money we wanted. That is humbug I That ia one of John's humbugs. You know when that old gooso calls ou his Christian friends to help him, you know what ho means—Just what he means. 1 have always done everything 1 could for the tax-paynrs. 1 appeal to every man to say whether I havo uot. Gentlemen, if 1 could be in (hla office In peace, I would like it. If you cun show that It don't beloug to me, I will walk out with tho greatest pleasure you cm imagine, and never care to como luto this place again, unless to see somebody here. I should like to help support eomolwdy who is hero If lam uot here. That Is tho way I feel. Wentworth said tho people would pay their taxes if they had another Mayor. 1 said (0 tho people, “Put np and 1 will resign.” If 1 can put this city right aui ferrn Jtrma, you know, and get that money to payola Indebtedness aud to save tho isnuo of those certificates that people ore talking about so much, 1 would l>a glad to do it; there Is no nacritlco 1 would not make—any thing you can Imagine.

( THE BOSTON WOMAN-KILLER. Special Dupateh to The Chicago Tribune, Boston, Mass., May B.—Mono of tbo myste rious aud awful murders which have brought our Puritanical city into notlco in lato vosra has created such an excitement as was produced by tbo confession of Thomas A. Piper, made public to-day. (J Enforced abstinence from rum and opium, together with constantly increasing'indulgence in solitary vice, baa loon breaking him down so that tbo Jailors nro already beginning to fear that bo will nover livo to mount tbo gallows. Ills failing health was shown first by bis acknowledgment that be know of Mabel’s death, but that It was the result of ac cident ; later by tbo writing of a long letter to bis mother, and, yoiterdav, by his confession of tbo crimo for which bo is to die; together with two others which bavo balllcd tbo best efforts of tbo potico. Although tbo fact of this confession was printed m a morning paper, it was not gen erally behoved till, in tbo Supremo Court, a motion for anew trial, affidavits in which bad been filed on Saturday, camo up for argument. Then tbo counsel for tbo prisoner arose and stated that confessions bad boon roado to him, tbo nature of which it was unnecessary for him to state, but which led -him to withdraw from any further connection with tbe caso, and tbo Judga tboieupon announced that tbo Court would formally overrule the motion. Mr. Brown declined to give any information as to bis conversation with tho prisoner, but tbo sub stance has boon learned. Piper confessed iu tbo first place to tbo murder ot f Mabel Young, of which bo stood convicted, saying that bo bad foit a desire all day to kill somebody, and bad taken a bat up into. tbo belfry with which to do it. Ho laid in wait for a girl about 12 years old, but Mabel 101 lin bis way, and, other request, be went up with her. Ho killodber by sinking her two blows upon her bead with tbo bat. Ho intended to oatrago her after death. Ho also confessed that bo was tbo murderer of Bridget Landrogau, which crime was committed in tho year 1873, and for which bo was onco arrested and discharged. Tbo evening on which be murdered her be was possessed with tbo uamo desire to kill, and bo nerved himself by drinking a compound of opium and whisky, and selected for bis instrument of death a piece of a wagon-ebaft, which bo sawed at tbe proper length and secreted. Ho thou wont out to watch ior ids victim. The unfortunate one bo selected bo saw* got out of a boreo-car. Bo did not know iter, but bo got ins club and followed her to n occluded spot, when bo crept up behind her aud struck her two terri ble blows upon tbo bead. Ho than ran homo, from which bo bud not been absent mure than fifteen minutes, and wont to Dcd. Ho also confessed to tbo assault on Mary Tyner iu July, 1874, for winch be bos never boon suspected, She was a proatitmo. Hu mot her on tbo street, and wont to bor room and to bed with bor. In tbe night be woke up, and, seeing that she was bleeping, was seized with tbo desire to kill bor. and bo accordingly beat bor upon the bead and loft her fur dead, escaping through an open window. Tbo dato of Piper's execution is fixed for May 20. There is little doubt about tho truth of bis statements concerning tbo two murders, but some discredit is thrown upon tbe other matter by tbo detectives, who think bis object may be to oreate a belief that bo is insane aud irrespon sible. Tbe nubile, however, demands tus exe cution, and there is no hope for executive clem ency. CANADIAN NEWS. tivedal Dituatch to The CVuciwn Tribune.

Gen* llrlstow anti the Illinois mate Convention. To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune t Chicago, May B.—Tbo State of Illinois has potent In all tbe National Conventions of the Republican party, by reason of being strong ly represented on (he right aide. As a matter of State pride, and to keep our prestige untar nished, wbat’ls tbo proper thing for us to do at the coming Convention at Cincinnati ? Shall wo cast our vote for a mero politician, whose suc cess at the polls would, nt the best, bo doubtful, or shall wo add our voice to that of Massa chusetts in favor of a candidate whoso very name signifies tbo restoration of the purer ora In which tbo foundations of tho Republic wero laid ono hundred years ago ? Goo. Bristow has Leon a bravo soldier in tbo Union army. lie has been an Anti-Slavery roan in a slave-bolding State, lie is an able lawyer, and has shown himself, in tbo various oflices bo has filled, to bo a natural statesman. Above all, bo baa combated tbo spirit of corruption that has crept Into tbe public service, wherever ho bas found It, wilh Irresistible energy. A deadly conflict is now go ing on between Bristow and the Whisky Ring, and be has accomplished results which, one year ago, would have been pronounced impossible by any person who knew the vast iKiwor iu money and political Influence wielded by this vile combination. 1 06u. Bristow’s battle with tbe Whisky Ring Is typic al of (be battle that must now bo fought by the people with all tho other corrupt rings in National. HUto, end Municipal Governments, (bat have brought tbo American name into disrepute before tho world. It cannot be any longer jwntponed. It linn been post poned, upon one pretext or another, too long already. In our own city tho power of these rings brought us recently to tbo very verge of revolution. It Is only a question of time when they will bring the whole country to revolution, unions the people throttle and destroy them at onoo, as God. Bristow has throttled and nearly destroyed (ho Whis ky Ring. America Is traveling (be same road that led tho Roman Empire to dodructlou, and that has more recently led tho Turkish Empire to bankruptcy, repu diation aud decay. Less than 1100 years ago tho Turks were besieging Vienna on the West, aud bad reduced I'cl'tr the Great to such extremities on tbe East that he was glad to purchase a truco from them on tho moat humiliating terms. They were a great and formidable power in the world. To-day they are un able to pay the Interest on their small national debt, and they tremble at tbo Insurrection of a few moun tain peasants In Herzegovina amt Bosnia. What has brought Turkey to this extremity/ Olflcial cor ruption I Corruption beginning with tho - highest othcers of tho State, and extending down to the lowest. Corruption which penetrates everywhere, aud which has loaded tbo people with such bunions that all incentive to industry is taken away. Wo road that tho collectors of revenue la Turkey steal 80 per cent of all they collect, and that thlaj practice has be come so common ami ho venerable llmt tbe Central Government ibtelf Is unable to put a stop to it. Lying and thieving have become the common• Uw of tbo country. Instead of bclug a terror to the nations of Europe, she has fallen guder thdr pity, aud (hoy hold conferences together to prevent tne remains of this once proud Empire from catching tire and burning up aud spreading conflagration iuto neighboring coun tries. Ih there any reason why America, by following tbe example of Turkey, mav not In the end fall Into the same melancholy ruin 7 None, whatever I I am far from asserting that we have reached an era of. general corruptloa. Neither Uhl tho Roman Empire or the Turkish Empire reach It all at once. They arrived there by degrees. I say that wa are traveling (he same road. Can any body doubt it? We have seen four Ctblnotofficers reilro from their places under circumstances which left no doubt in ihe piiblfd mind that they bad been guilty of cornu* practices. Some ofthosowbo still remain ore not abovo suspicion. We have seen tho Private KecreUry of the President under critnluil In dictment twice within a few weeks. We have seen— alas, what have we not seen 7 Have we not seen enough to Justify us in saying that wo ore traveling on Ihe road that loads to national decay 7 Fortunately public opinion la not yet corrupted. Honest citizens absorbed iu business bare allowed rascals to uuminato their candidates for them, and have then gone to tbe polls merely to ratify the nomi nations. They have tho result before them. Now (ley must do something ol*-e. They must leave lbe:r ledgers, thdr workshops, and thdr plows to tight a now enemy, or rath.-r nu old enemy whoso cxlstinci they have not heretofore been willing to recogube. Who Is the man who most fitly represents tbo spirit of tho coming encounter? Bristow! Who Is (ho min who has shown the largest measure of moral courage—tho characteristic without which all other dements will bo worthless In this encounter 7 Bris tow! Who Is the man that baa exhibited (ho greatest amount of vigilance nut foresight in preparing for tho battle? Bristow! Who Is (bo man whom (ho people would follow with greatest confidence in the campaign we are about to commence against all man ner of public malfeasance 7 His name Is, emphati cally, Bristow! Qlu view of those facts, what should the Btate of Illinois do ? Has she not as great an Interest iu the honor of the Amerlcau narao as Mass vchusottsY Is she any more miserably smothered by (he machine politician* than MzsstchusotU was before her late Convention? Are not bor fanners and buslns's-men as capable of asserting tbeir political independence in this Centennial-Year of Independence? I think it will be found that they are. Illinois holds the same (ilvotal position in tho West that Massachusetts does a the East, bhe can give tbe Presidential nomination to Bristow more easily than she gave It to Lincoln iu 18(10, and her action iu so doing will redound no Ices to her credit than thou. There are several Oongrcs sloual Districts iu the State that will send Bristow delegates to Cincinnati, and if the throe Chicago • dis tricts do the same he will get the majority of the dele gation and probably tho delegates at largo. The prin cipal cities of tho Union luru already formed Bristow Clubs, Why docs not Chicago do lha same? Fouam Ward. TELEGRAPHIC NOTES.
