A meeting of th« Eiecutlvo Committee of the cm sens' Association was held at their room* yesterday af ternoon, the object being, among other things, to dls cuss the ways and means of presenting certain ques tions to th« Grand Jury for investigation. The ar rangements bad been perfected for somo time, but ths publication In those columns Sunday made it neces sary to change the plans materially, that the ends of Justice might be subserved. It Is needless to say that tbs Committee wers unsparing In their deprecation of the journalistic policy of anticipating events, and felt not a little curiosity to know how it was that the ro porters always succeeded la Ulug present at private meetings, ooLvu’s agreed case. Daring the session tbe following papers were pre sented, which explain themselves; Citizens’ Aesocunorr or Outoaoo, Executive Committee, Boom 30 Alebouantu* Builuiku, out caoo, May 9, Ibtfi.— Eduard b'. ttham, /.17.—Dksu Sib : In bis rcmsrks to the Council Ust evening, Mr. Colvin stated : •• 1 Invited certain parties to go to tb« Supreme Court with an agreed case. They made an application for mandamus for the election of a Mayor. This was dons by my own invitation and, aa wo are Informed, be has repeatedly stated that the application to the Supreme Court lor a mandamus which you. with Ur. Melville W. Fuller, argued at the January term, 1976, was In the nature of an agreed case. This Executive Committee have directed me to ask you the question, for tbclr Information and that 1 f our members, and of the public generally, What are the facts in Dili matter? And whether It was at any time understood by counsel on either side that tbe •* petition for mandamus " In tbe Mayoralty cats was in the nature of “ an agreed cuss l ” A concise reply at on early hour will vary much •bilge this Committee. Yours respectfully, J. 0., Secretory, Chicago, May 9—Jfr. J, (*. Ambler, StcreUtrv, tU. “Deab Bib : Tour communication of this morning In behalf of the Executive Committee of the Citizens' Association ta Just received. The facta in the matter to which you refer, aa I recall them, are these: Do fore the filing of lb* petition for maudatuue tu the Su preme Court w« Inquired of one of the counsel, whom ws understood would appear for the respondents in Ihs proceeding, u he would stipulate that ths petition night eland for an alternative writ, end would file a Umanar to It as such, aud try the Issue ixwn that d«Bunr. Aftn consultation. be JpA M M bfd bMA Ulflugbl Iwt HM. I* make nth atlpuUllonl but that wo mntl pwred la bring the City Connell before the Gear! by regular Broeoei, Thereupon, on lh* 4th of January, we filed is petition for an alternatlra writ of mandamus In the Harreme Court at flprlngfleld, accompanied by an affidavit showing aervlc* of the filing of the petition upon all tba Aldermen, tbs Mayor, and tha City Clerk; and on that day motion wo* mad* In open court for the alternatlra writ. Counsel appeared and filed aoma suggestion* In behalf of tba Mayor, opposing the Issuing of the altaraatlre writ, and claiming that tba Court must be governed In the proceedings by the atatuta on tbe subject of mandsmui. Mr. Fuller and myself filed aleo with our petition a abort printed brief, In which we inalatedllbat tba atatuta upon mandatnua related only to tbe Circuit Courts, and not to tba Supreme Court at all. Tbe Court look tbs matter under advisement, and on tbe Clb of January. I think, decided that tbe statute had reference oulytotbe Circuit Courts, and was Intended to regulate tba prao lice In those courts; but that for tbe sake of uniform- Ityof practice they required proceeding! Inman* damn* in tbe Supreme Court to be commenced by summons instead of tba alternative writ, and that in cases where public interests ware Involved tbey would Diske tbe writ returnable to a day in tbe anmo term at which tbe application was made. In this case tbe summons was made returnable In ton days. Tbero* upon we leaned tbe summons returnable, t think, on Jsn. 17. and caused It to be served upon each member of tbo City Council, and by three proceedings. and no other, were tbs re spondents to tbe petition brought before the Court. In these stages of tbs proceeding we thought ourselves put to unuecettiary trouble, but after the service of tbe summons a demurrer was filed by the respondents, and the cause was argued upon that demurrer. I think Mayor Colvin Is under a misapprehension In this mat ter. Ido not moan to say that there was unreasonable opposition ; but I recite these facts to show that wo bau to bring the City Council into Court as we could, and to show that there waa nothing In the nature of an sgraed case about this proceeding ; and I might sug gest that the Mayor was uot In a position to make an agreed case, for the reason that tba City Council, and not the Mayor, were respondents to tbe petition. Very respectfully, Euwaao 9. Isiuu. OGDEN—BARKER. A MICHIGAN AYENCE WEDDING. Mr, John W. Ogden and Miss Annie B.

Ur, Hchmtdt recognized the iron as the property of the county, ordered It unloaded, and threatened to arrest the Junkman. The order was compiled with promptly, but nobody appears to know who made the aale, and there la a disposition around the Jail to pasa the whole affair off aa a joke.

Judging from the smile of satisfaction tuey wore when dismissed. Ur. Fuller was particularly plousaut, cud was heard to remark that "the Jury never touched the rock, but had saked him eome very silly questions," eucn as whether or not ho had over hud access to the books of the South Side Railway Company, and how many Aldermen appeared on (he £iy-roU, etc. Mr. Stevens had been Interested i a rival application for right-of-way along the avenue. and he told all he know with readiness, lie was detained with the Jury for eome time, but bis story has been so often told aa to be a little threadbare. Pope and Woodman were examined tn reference to in old contract with the county, and u night-watch man at the Jail told & long story In reference to the management of that Institution, In wblch the late escape figured. To-day tho Jury will return to regu lar cases. Bo far there baa been a hitch In the Invest!gallons threatened and prompted by the Citizens’ Association.

TOWNSHIP ORGANIZATION. Opinions Couccrntnc Its Aboli tion In Cook County. Meiin. Jowott, Swott, anil Dent Hold that it Ii Feasible but Unwise. aicsirs. Goody and Yon Bnrcn Adriio Gto County Board Not to Submit tho Question, Mr. Pallor Beoommonds Obtaining tbo Views of tho Supreme Court. At tb« meeting of the County Board held Monday, there were submitted the opinions of various prominent lawyers on tbo question of the abolition of township organisation in this county,—its feasibility ami its advisability. They are in brief aa follows: JEWETT, BWETT, AND DENT. First oomoa one signed by John N. Jowatt, Leonard Swell, and Thomas Dout. The opinion reviews tbs primary object and purposes of the Township Organization law, aud gives Us lead log provisions, and tbo Vowers conferred upon the officers elected under thorn. The government of this county by tbs old Board of Supervisors was cumbersome aud in other respects objectionable, and its management of tho affairs intrusted to it had been such as to cause it to bo looked upon with groat suspicion. Tbo result of (his public feeling was (bo present organization of tbo Board of Commisbionots. This change in tbo organization of tho County Board did not, iu tholr Judgment, affect tho organization of the towns of tba county. It aimpty •übetltutod the Board of fifteen Commissioners for tbaold Board of Biiporvtßora In the management of comity affairs, and It was In this respect alone that the Constitution contemplated or provided that any change should bo made. Thin they understood to be a dear legislative recog nition of tuo existence of township organization In Cook County, notwithstanding the cnango mado In the County Board, aud that U did so exist had been recent ly decided by our Bupromo Court, aud thoy bad not been able to find any good foundation for an argument to (he contrary to rent upon. Starling, then, with tho proposition conceded or es tablished, that township organization, as a system of local Government, waa slid iu force lu Cook County, tho question of law submitted was, " Can that system be discontinued in raid county under the provisions of the Constitution and statutes now lu force T ” Iu support of this view, various provisions of the Constitution aud laws are referred to, and tbo gen tlemen proceed to say that if township organization was lu lorco lu Cook County, aa la now assumed, tbo language of tho Constitution aud law relating tolls discontinuance waa certainly broad enough to lududo Cook County; for lathe one case Ills "any county that shall have adopted township organization,” and in tho other "any county having adopted township organisation,”—moaning, In both cases, any county Jn tho State in which township organization exists, or shall exist, as a matter of fact. Tho question, os pre sented, was solely cue of power to get rid of an exist ing system of local government, and not at all a ques tion of policy. Many suggestions were made or readily occurred against tbo expediency of discontinuing township organization in tho county under present circumstances, tho full force of which thoy recognized oud admitted; but tho people lu this country, when constitutions and laws did not forbid, and especially when constitutions aud laws authorized It, had a legal right to become os disorganized, as they, in the everclM) of tbeir sovereign pleasure, might doom proper. Except as actually restrained by constitu tions and laws, no obligation other than that which good sense aud morality Impose (not always very In fluential in politics) rusted upon them to accept or con tinue any particular system of local government, no matter how advantageous for them to do so; and w hen a right was expressly given, and tho exercise of It Intrusted to tbo publlo discretion, the consequence of the exercise of that discretion |u a particular way could not bo urged as au argument against the exist ence of tho right Itoclf. Tho management of Cook County affairs could not be disturbed by legislative act, and whether the county rumnluod under township organization or not, Us nHairs must continue to be managed by a Board of fifteen Commissioners. Tuo remis sion of tbo management of county affairs to three Commissioners upon the discontinuance of township organization In uuy county could not apply to Cook County. The roanogomont of tbo affairs of Cook County was made an exceptional case by tho Constitution without prejudice to tho existence of township organization as a local system of govern ment. Upon the discontinuance of township organization, all interests now lu tho control of township oiflccri would become Interests of tue county, to be managed by the County Board and other appropriate county oillcers, and the hooka, papers, aud records of the sev eral towns would be remitted to tbe custody of tbo County Clerk, and tbe property of the towns become subject to the disposition of the County Board under the limitations aud for tho purposes specified In tho law. The gentlemen advise the Hoard to anbmlt the queetlou of the abolition of township orgaolzatloo to tbe people, to be voted on at te nuzt general aleo tlon after the presentation of the petition. They wore finally of the opinion that any attempts to discontinue township organization la Cook County, under existing circumstances, would bo a monstrous mistake. Tho opinion closed by making some Bug gostlons concerning the cioJlncallou of thetslate laws to compass tbe dcslrud cud of correctlug abuses In county management. OOUbV AND VAN BCSCN'S OPINION. The opinion of Messrs, Ooudy and Van Duren con templates three sections of the Constitution providing for township organization, the latter of which nays “ tho county afiutra of Cook County shall be managed by a Hoard of Commissioners of fifteen persons, ten of whom shall bo elected tram the City of Chicago, and live from towns outside said city, In such manner as may tw provided by law." It claims that this gives rise to tho qiuetlou whether, or not, tho Constitution imposes on Cook County permanently a form of Coun ty Government different from tho other counties In the titnte, aud beyond the power of tho Legislature to change. Entering upon an analysis of the various systems of Town and County Government, it says that •• tbe idea that the town business is not o part of tbe county bust ness us a political fragment *of tho State, or that tho general county business Is something distinct in character from that done by tho lesser corporate an (horUlcs. Is a fallacy, and It claims that wucro the phut of township organization prevails, tho business com mon to the wholo county Is done by representatives, such as HnpervUors, from the towns. The language of tho Constitution certainly Implies that the business ojuuut bo done by Commissioners, except in counties not under tbe township system, aud therefore an ex press provision was inserted allowing Commissioners In Cook County. Enumerating the acts and appropriation under the system, it says that the suburban towns Lave now sub stantially village governments, and have acquired proi>ertY, and are distinguished from the ordinary towes covered by the general Township Organization law. In addition to this, tbs Legislature, In JtiCO, au thorized tho establishment of public parks In West Chicago, North Chicago, and Lake View, to be maintained by township taxation. Dy virtue of this, land bxti been acquired, assessments mode, bonds is sued, aud Improvements commenced, which will re quire the levy of Uses for many years to come. Those peculiar provisions all rest on tho organization os towns, under the General TownsblpOrganizatlon law, and If the general law U repealed, or the system In Co»k County is abolished, the wholo structure will fall, and leave the Inhabitants without power to con tinue and molntaln the Improvements begun, *• If there is power to abolish the system of town ship organization lu Cook County it must be found In Art. 11. of tho revised Township Organization law of 1D74, boeause that Is the only statute In force on the subject. If tbe provisions of that article do not em brace or apply to Cook County then there te a want of power. Tho first section authorizes a vote of dlscoutiuasnceof townshlporganlzation In sny county having adopted It, aud it Is provided that It shall cease when a County Hoard is elected and quali fied, aud oil laws relating to counties not under the system shall apply to tbe emancipated county. The question is, Do these provisions apply to Cook County, which is not included or excepted in the statute?" The opinion then goes deeply Into the rules by which legislative enactments must bo construed, snd thou construe* tbe statute to excluds Coon County from the provision which permits discontinuance of the sys tem. The stainte providing for the discontinuance provides also for the government which shall succeed, and which shall consist of three County Commission ers, to be elected, etc., which cannot apply to Cook Couiitr, lor the Constitution says that the county aftairs of Cook County shall m managed by a Hoard of fifteen Commissioners elected lu Axed districts, aud this Constitution Is beyond Legislative control. It then proceeds to argue that, as the operations of tbe sections an to affairs lu Cook County would result lu so much barm, the Legislature could not have contemplated such county in the passage of the acts. As to the course to be pursued, tbe opinion suggests that "It would be tbe duty of the County Commla aiouers to refuse to cause tho question of discontinu ance to be submitted." Hut ae a contrary conclusion, has been reoebed by some of the counsel included lu tho resolution, tbe Hoard it recommended to pro forma refuse to order the election, so that an applica tion can be made for a mandamus to couqiel a submission of the question, or that an agreed case be made, as allowed by Iba statute and presented to the Bupreme Court before submitting the question. The reasons for this course are obvious, if there is a want of power to submit thequustiun, ami the vote should be against tho present system, aud an effort should be made to assess aud collect taxes on tho theory that such su organization was abolished, such assessment aud tbo warrant fur collection would be void. On the other hand. If there Is power, aud the Court of lasi revolt shall so decide before the elec tion, and the present system should bo abolished, tbers would be no embarrassing questions or litigation to follow. A decision could no obtained before the time to submit the question at the next election, so that no delay would occur by taking Uis course aug gesUd. * At. W. FULLED. The following opinion was submitted by U. W, Fuller; ** 1 have no doubt tbit, 'under Ibe existing Oonsti* tutlou and Uws «f this State,' Ibe power Is vested la the Hoard of Commissioners of Cook County to sub* mil to the people the question of the abolition of town* ship organization, and that therefore It ts the duty of tbs Hoard to do so upon the proper application, “ As, bowsrer, tba Supremo Court bolds a session In ratnlnii months, and tf tbs application bepm tnlly made hi learai to to supposed probable, there would be no difficulty in obtaining a definite Judicial settlement of Ui* question of power Ufore the election at which the vote could be bad. 1 think, In view of the complications which would ensue If the popular voice were pronounced against township organization, that It would be the part of prudence amt wisdom for tba Board to aid In making up an agreed caae for the disposition of tbs tribunal of last resort. "Bo far aa consequence* are concerned If township erganlzatlou should be abolished, I have not permit ted myself to take them Into consideration In arriving at a conclusion In the premlsee, except so far aa bear ing upon the ascertainment of intention In the fram ing of the various constitutional and legislative pro ceedings, aa I conceived that they are mattsrt to be more particularly passed upon by the voter*, when submission has been ordered.” AMUSEMENTS. HOOLEY’9 THEATRE. Ur. Daly’s "Fiqas” was played Monday night for lbs Aral time in Chicago. It mot with a most flattering reception. The auditorium was tilled with a brilliant and critical assemblage, whose applause and laughter gavo aubatanlial testimony to tbo success of tbo performance. There are objections to be mado to details In. the ooDotrucliOD of the play. Nor la tbo sating in all respects what it should be. But the per formance as a wbolo does not flag la interest, nor fall to elicit Uugbter where merriment la tbo end sought by the author. How many mod ern dramatists are there who can truthfully say that they have found In any audience accurate responses to all tbo emotions which they have attempted to exhibit ? If Ur. Daly has succeeded even In doing this, bo has accom plished more than most contemporary American playwrights; and beta entitled to the credit of success in a field of effort where thousands bays failed. Tbo ilmo when it was fashionable to sneer at Augustin Daly as an adaptor of plays has almost, If not entirely, passed away. Ho Is henceforth to bo known as a play-koackor of experience and renown. Tho plot of "Pique” is as follows : Mabel Renfrew, a fashionable New York girl, le suf fering, at the rising of the curtain, from on embar rassment of lovers. Two of these—Sammy Dymplt and Thortoy Gyll—tta boyish fellows fresh from Harvard, wsntlng In earnestness, decision of charac ter, and modesty; the third Is aa bonest Captain in the navy, bearing the good old Puritan name of Slandtth: the fourth, whom Mabel loves, Is Raymond Letting, a handsome fortune-hunt er. Another Important character in this act Is Mabeft step-mother, not much older than her self, who, being in possession of a largo property, and no longer incumbered by a huabauu, is a dangerous rival In love-making enterprises. Raymond Letting, after a tender aceno with Mabel, learns that tier ox flotations are comparatively small, and Immediately raasfers hie affections to ilr*. Renfreie. Mabel over hears his fatso expressions of devotion, and, in a rush of pride and pique, accept* Cunf. ftamiDA, who loves her as only a strong man can love, but whom she re gards with aversion rather than otherwise. In tba second act Mabel Renfrew, transformed Into Mabel Slamitth, Is brought to the Puritan home of her hus band In Now England. Here wo are Introduced to tnreo new acquaintances— Mattheu StanJiih, a stiff necked old rollt-ownor, very proviso la hie manners and particular about prayers; Aunt Dorothea, s loving soul, whose piety does not always get the better of her human nature; and Raiteh, a waif, who bos been reclaimed from the slums of New York, and sent to this gulot home to be " brought up ” like another 'J opty. Mabel la not long In discovering that such a home la unendurable; tho atmosphere that pervades it stifles her; sho cannot, and will not, attend prayers, nor submit to tho decor ous and Inflexible rules of the establishment. Her huansnd entreats her to yield for a time at least, and uses all the means Jn his power to soften tho unaccus tomed and disagreeable surroundings of his home; but the more he tries tho more sho refuses to be •allelicd. She becomes petulant, capricious, and rude; and, finally, In an excess of rage, she lolls tbo whole story,—how sbo never loved him, but married him because sbo was piqued by tbo troacbory of Raymond Letting. CavL StandiiAblds her farewell forever, aud loaves the house. There Is a lapse of some months between the eccond and third acts, and when the cur tain rises again, Mabel has a child, who la henceforth to play a leading part In the drama. When Mabel de sires to live apart from old fflamhsfi, she proposes to take the child with her; but, while consent for her own departure is readily obtained, tho grandfather loves the child too well to let It go. Tbo mother then, becoming desperate, arranges with a number of trumps to steal the child and surrender It to her after wards. Before tho theft la accomplished, she ropouts, and gives orders to the tramps to desist. But they have learned that money Is to bo mado by torturing the grandfather’s loro, and they accordingly stool tho child on their own account. Tho fourth and fifth acts tire entirely taken up with tho search for and tho recovery of tho child. In this work Railch, tbo wslf, who has friends amoug tho tramps, but who loves her Now England frlomla hot ter, ana Sammy DympUhctt prominent parts. In the end, the child la brought back; the news is broken to the anguish-stricken mother; tho husband returns, and the wife, who has been loving him hard ever sines she lost him, finds her true happiness at last on his breast. Sammy Rumple, the boy millionaire with rod hair, marries Ilaiteh, ana Mary Standith accepts the other boy-lover, Tnorsby Oyll. Mr. Daly Is Indebted to two sources for the princi pal material of ibis drama. These are Florence Mar ryatt’s cove), '* Her Lord and Master," and the atoryof Charlie Hoes. Florence Marryatt prodomlnatea in tho first half of tho play, and Charlie floss la the second half. Doth parts are properly arranged, and tho adaptation of them to each other as well na to tbe re quirements of the stage fa almost as creditable a piece of work as tho invention of an original plot. The first two acts and part of tbe third aro taken directly from *• tier Lord and Master." Tho language of the covcl Is avoided, for tho roost part, though even this may bo detected in one or two instances. Mr. Daly's serious fault lu this adaptation Is In following too closely the idea of oaete as a moans of separation between hue band and wife, which Is so essential a part of tho English novel, American girls hare no snob notions of coats as those which Florence Marryatt ascribes to her Lady t'thel Carr . It Is absurd to think of a New York girl who would turn up her nose at a Captain In the navy merely because hla father was a mill-owner In Massachusetts, and worth $4,000,0;<0 to $5,000,000. American girls In Now York, or out of It, do not turn up their nuios at that kind of men. For the rest, the novel is well used. A bettor playwright than Mr. Daly might bo proud of haring turned unpromising ma terial to such good advantage. •' Her Lord and Mas ter," bo It understood, Is a slipshod work of fiction, more remarkable on tho surface for bad grammar, pious platitudes, and false sentiment, than for rigorous fancy or truthful delineation of character. The Charlie lloss episode, also, la well treated. It Is full of allott ing suggestions and affords opportunities for the Intro duftlon of a strong sceno to tho thieves' den. The dialogue of tbe play Is sprightly and animated; the tableaux effective, and the stage arrangements excel lent. Tbe only objection we have to urge to U is an occasional want of correct perspective, as, for in stance, when tho child Is brought in at the third not, wept over by the mother, and stolen before her oyes, all In a breath. The situation Is absurd. Bo also In the conservatory scene, two or throe couples make love successively within hearing of bystanders, with out so much as asking to have the lights turned down; and all thotr talking Is dons In a loud voice. There Is frequently a sudden Jumble of Incidents which temporarily disconcerts tbe spectator, Tula Is especially noticeable In tho fifth act, (he whole rational* of which Is obscure. , Miss JeHreys-Lewis assumes the important and Tory trying pari of Mabel Jienfrew, Her style is uneven, but generally easy and comfortable. When shs for gets herself and becomes passionate, she is strong and good; when she remembers herself, shs is often arti ficial and weak, Hhe was particularly affecting In the fifth act, when, believing her child to be dead, she re fused to be comforted, and was led from the room by her husband sobbing an though her heart would break. Tbe best acting, however, was dons by Alias Ada Oilman aud Air. Owen Fawcett, who played llatUh and Hammy Vvmple. Their love poesags In the last act was exquisite, especially on tho part of Alias Oil man. Frank Chapman as Thoraby Uyll, the other boy lover, was acceptable. ifOTmoncg Jim (George De •vsre) was as rough and smart as anybody could expect. Ills exposition to the bloated capitalist. Matthew Htamliah, of the relations between capital and labor, though too witty for one In bis station, was full of telling points, some of which the audience did not fully appreciate, Mr. Hardie as Matthau Htandtah Nave no signs of old age In voice, step, or action; and the robust manner In which na rolled outthafew pieces of claptrap that fell to bis sbaro showed how far short he came from being a true artist.
